hey...you're all still here!

Still not ran since, may go for a jog tomorrow. So...who's running Chester next year? I wasn't going to run a marathon next autumn due to the amount of time needed for the training, but am tempted now as had such a good weekend.....

For the next few months I'm going to be just plodding, getting my base up again...maybe some speedwork occasionally to shake things up - then the next marathon 18wk schedule will start in January.

GazOc - I dont think I will to be honest because me legs are just about starting to not feel sore today, so just doing easy miles since Tuesday evening while the legs recover. I've not tried to do any sub 8 min miling yet. Hoping to do some at the athletics track on Tuesday with me usual training partner. it is also the Border League the week after which most of the local clubs compete in and I was hoping to use that as a tempo effort at 6min pace.

Your clearly recovering faster than me Gaz. You would beat me fair an sqaure at the moment.

Andy, I think I should use this extremely small window of opportunity to challenge you to a race...;-)

Andy, I shall race you along with Gaz...  I shall be starting Borders League, will see you there.  Me, in me new snazzy box fresh Adidas that I intend to buy - just like the Elites...    Brooks aren't lasting long enough for me so back to the trusty A.D.I.D.A.S for little me.  Got longer out of them. 

Heart rate advice please kidda.  I ran before, HRM on, did 3.3 miles recovery run at 9:30m/m and heart rate was 62% heart rate reserve.   Is that right for recovery?  Heart rate stayed same throughout, didn't get higher at all.  On my 9 miler week before Chester, it also stayed same.  What does that mean?  I thought heart rate supposed to gradually go up because of dehyration etc?

Are well this is bloody great so now I know as well as GazOc beating me I will have Heow kicking my arse to. Oh the joy. Does anyone else want to have a go, I'll have ya, I will, honest, C'mon lets be avin ya then
Atleast I may be okay In gwersyllt on saturday ha ha you 2 avent thought of that one have you mwa ha ha ha haaaaaaa.

heow when you did your 9miler before Chester with the same HR throughout thats what yer want. When you say I thought heart rate supposed to gradually go up because of dehyration etc? ?? thats the reason people slow down in marathons because there not aerobically fit enough. Its good that you can run with same HR throughout runs. Thats is what Hadd training does for runners. It makes there aerobic systems much more efficient basically.
