...and the beat goes on...
Yay, point to MM.
DV, Jimbob - congrats on the runs.
You'll all be pleased to hear they eat cake for breakfast in Bratislava
Good to see the first choice 11 are settling in well in Bratislava. They'll put the game beyond doubt before a couple of late substitutions on friday when there's no risk.
Orbutt -ping might not be too bad. I had a very similar thing once and thought I'd be out for ages. Six days later I ran a hilly 10 mile race.
35k done for me today. Easier than last week and average pace finished precisely where I wanted it but the heat was tough so, again, number of stops needed.
Good luck to the ITLR guys, fantastic stuff. Mad, but fantastic.
I've been in hiding as constant knee trouble means I hadn't been out in weeks, but managed a broken 6km today without feeling any pain. Still going to the physio on Tuesday, but the 10km I'm down for next Saturday is going to be hard work! Hay fever adds an extra fun layer to running in this heat.
LA - Your 10k a couple of weeks ago gives me hope, well done.
Cracking run, DLR. Can't imagine those kind of distances when it's so warm.
Fantastic News from the Island Games in Bermuda - Orkneys own, Bobby Oag, won gold in the triathalon!!!
Good luck to all the ITLR team and well done TD for getting it organised. Keep us posted on progress please.
Loch Lomond Tri was fantastic - beautiful location, scorching temperatures and blue skies. Best of all was seeing BCRC members, and they really gave me some raucous support. Finished in 1 hour 13 minutes- pleased with that as it was a very tough course. And I lost some time when I came off my bike in a field full of mud that had been baked into ruts that caught quite a few cyclists out. The view across the loch from the top of the (very steep) hill was spectacular, and just reward for the gruelling climb. And the OW swim was great fun - not sure why I was so worried!
DLR - fingers crossed that you're right. At least I'm quite experienced at treating it now. Great running too mate, great to see you racking up the miles.
Simon - cracking result. Glad you enjoyed it.
Wohlf - running without pain is a great start.
Afternoon all, well done to anyone running in this heat. I've had a rubbish time of things recently with first having a bad cold followed up by a stomach bug so done very little running. Feeling much better so hopefully get some miles done this week.
Good luck to the ITLR guy's.
Unexpectedly long and hilly run for me this afternoon. My pacing was a mess and I now have sore quads and calf muscles. I blame my personal trainer/massage therapist who has decamped to Slovakia...
It was, however, all worthwhile to see this scenery, including this little Celtic church, built in the early 1200s and enlarged in 1779. Sometimes it's nice to just stop and look at something different, isn't it?
Lovely MM. As is the scenery.
14 miles for me today. But after 8 I returned home and did the last 6 indoors. Not sure why the hear is getting me this year and not other years - dare I suggest it's because I'm older? My BRF tells me its because I'm now a vegan
I noticed that I found it more difficult to cope with the Australian heat, but then I realised it was in fact a hotter summer than last year. Is it possible the same thing is happening in the States?
I was rubbish in the heat at y/days coastal run- nice day out though...This is how the race starts
So, we've started ITLR And I've already managed to have two breakfasts this morning
Today's batting order if anyone wants to join in with a synchronised runTD - 6am to 7.15am.Helterskelter - 8.46am to 9.38am (Yes, timings are awfully precise - TD doesn't plan things by half)Emmy - 9.38am to 11.35am RR - 11.35am to 1.10pmIain - 2.11pm to 3.12pmMe - 3.12pm to 4.25pm
For those who don't know, loads of pics are up on Fizzbog (you don't need to have a login to see them) All being well with wifi, we'll be sticking loads of pics and videos on there.https://www.facebook.com/pages/In-The-Long-Run-2013/245873735549757
And we're having dinner tonight in an old Soviet aircraft just across the border in the Czech Republic
Right, off to see if I can scrounge a third breakfast from somewhere...
Weedy - when the cat's away the mice cant play. You've already posted the list ! I was going to add Sid Boogle, Dr Soaper, Joan Fussey. Is this the hangover recover order. Is Douglas running the 7:15-8:46 ? You can tell who organised the order, TD has the morning breeze whilst RR is going to fry in the midday sun. Good luck to everyone.
Best of luck to everyone... it'll be a great adventure, for a good cause.
Well done Weedy "Multiple Brekkies" Gonzalez
I hope the navigation equipment is working OK. I have the tracking link, but it is saying that it can't connect.
Maus. Can you share the tracking link?
Monday morning intervals for me. Those pesky pyramid ones. But, considering I've not done any since last September, they weren't too bad
Good luck to everyone in the ITLR! Sounds like a great event.
Wohlf -- get through the first few tough runs and things will improve fairly quickly.
Danir-- if you find the answer to the morning/late evening run question, let me know. In general morning runs feel better to me, but Im not great at getting up early enough to run before work.
Lawyeraaron - no answers from me. I tried the afternoon yesterday, with less humidity but higher temps and it did not go well. I think for me the answer is to do morning runs for my less important runs (recovery and easy runs, long runs, hills ) but I'm going to be indoors for my target specific runs (tempo, mara pace, fartleks).
Yesterday I did 8 miles outside and it was horrible - had to stop twice in Dunkin Donuts to cool off in their air conditioning. Once home did another 6 on the treadmill and felt much better, stronger.
