AC and BB - thanks. I'll do just that then, open out at conversational pace first 3 miles then ramp up to MP (07:22-07:30/mile) for the next 5-8 then ease back. Cheers folks!
AGF - Sorry to hear you are not running, any idea what the problem is with your leg?
9 miles for me early this morning, bit chilly til I got going but happy to report avg of 7:21.
AGF - sorry to hear the bad news, hope you recover soon.
BB - excellent pace, was this a MP or sub MP tempo run? Yes, was chilly this morning, first time wearing a t-shirt instead of a vest for about 2 months for my easy 30 min run.
Club track session tonight, 8 x 1000m, a lot more enjoyable than 400s.
Crappy news AGF, get everything sorted and be back for next years!
Nice 9m Barry, looks good for Sunday.
AC, 8x1k not long after a HM, you are made of strong stuff, what pace are you doing them at and what recoveries? Im still on easy running, also first time in t-shirt this morning, getting used to running oin the dark now as well
AGF-That's a real bummer! I've got something wrong with my right shin & left quad has been a concern too. So I've not run at all this week . Will have an easy bimble around Fri & hopefully I'll not embarrass myself at Maidenhead on Sunday!
SR3 - Get the bad ones out if the way now, still 20 miles logged.
Luvsa, AR - Good luck for tomorrow, I'll be in white singlet and black shorts but probably easiest way to spot me is my blue KT tape on my leg, try and see you at the start because I'll think you'll be long gone by the time I finish.
Good luck to the Maidenhead racers tomorrow, also anyone else racing!
Better to get the bad runs in now SR3 than in 5 weeks -gulp-
Put last weeks half to bed this morning with 10 easy 8:20/m, then 10 steady 7:04/m, cd. first time havinbg a bit to eat before hand and noticed the difference.
Meep - Nice long run.
Martin - Welcome back and well done for getting back on it.
Good day for me, Maidenhead HM and recommend it, well organised and a good course. Bit congested for first mile but stopped me setting off too quick, plan was 7's and see how it was going, was looking for 1:35 after my PW a few weeks ago but v happy to report I finished in 1:30:49(garmin) at 6:56 avg.
Well done Barry - sounds like you had a great race. I looked out for you at the start. I stared at the legs of several runners wearing white singlets, but didn't see any KT tape. Gave up after I got somes stares back
I went out far too fast. First 3 miles were sub 6 min/m pace (stupid pace for me given I have a 19:20 5k pb!). Calmed down a bit, struggled in the middle with pace, and developed a bad stitch. Then twisted an ankle. Picked up the pace and finished with a pb of 1:22:09, a bad stitch, and an ankle that is now ballooning up. I don't think the ankle will be too bad to affect training
Sounds like you had a good holiday Martin, sounds like you truly treated yourself!
Back on form BB, good run,looks like your target in 5 weeks is getting quicker
Lol Also, getting caught checking out peoples legs. Nice time, and with a twisted ankle to deal with. Bet you are looking forward to revising that 5k at some point as well!
AR - That is quick given your stitch and ankle. I got a couple of strange looks, I was waiting at the finish trying to meet up with someone from the sub 3:30 thread, was looking for a blonde ponytail, but gave up after two just gave me a nod but obviously not the person.
