...and the beat goes on...
I finally seem to be seeing a return to closer to what I expect from my running. I managed 9 miles tonight at not far off the sort of pace I'd expect over that distance. It hurt like hell, but felt good to see it paying off in terms of time. That's off the back of a decent 11 miles last night. I think the departure of the big burny thing in the sky is helping big time in getting my times back down.
A few weeks of hard training and hopefully I can get back to some decent form for my up and coming races.
Hope you can all see my halo shining - no running, no cycling, no kettlebells, no metafit...........
Eggy -- keep at it, your times will get back where you want them.
Dannirr --Ive tried uphill marathons. the other kind sounds a lot better
DV --Im a big Smiths fan too, but haven't listened to much of Marr's new stuff. I will give it a try.
You serious Kaz??? Nothing? Well done!
Eggy, good to hear your running is getting back on track... Wish mine was. Thinking about the Great Scottish Run on 6 October? How would you rate it?
Simon - It's a good race. They've chnaged the route this year, with the second half of the route taking a completely different route from what it normally does. I'm not sure if that will be better or not. I think support wise the new section could be barren for support until you turn back into the city centre, while the part they've cut out included Pollock Park and a part of the city with amazing support from the Sikh community in Glasgow.
I think they've gone down the include the sites on route as they take you past the tall ship and the new Hydro building this year. It's a fast, flat course. The only hill on it is right at the start. It can be very busy for the first couple of miles until you clear the Kingston Bridge, but once you get over that the road widens and you should be able to dictate your own pace.
I've entered this year. This'll be my seventh year in a row doing the half there. It's a local one for me though.
Kaz - Well done, glad to hear you're looking after yourself.
Thanks Eggy. Think I'll enter the half, and Mrs Mac will do the 10K. I really need to sort my running out first though. Even the easy runs are hard....
I'm sorting out my running just now too. I've not been consistent with my running since doing Paris/London due to niggling injuries, work insanity and getting a social life.
I'm currently pushing as hard as I can to try and get my cardio fitness back by getting some decent pace going, along with trying to get a few decent middle distance type runs in. So far both pace and distance are hurting like hell, but at least the times seem to heading in the right direction. I'd love to have a crack at my 10k PB at Perth or Stirling, but I'm not sure I can get in that sort of form in time for them.
I'll be very happy if I can get to the start of winter training in good shape, particularly after last winters groin strain ruined training. I really didn't enjoy training for Paris this year as that injury meant my training was slow, and I found out I hate not being able to push myself and just getting to slowly plod along.
Inverness 10K is a good one for a PB Eggy. That's where I got mine, and I don't think I'll ever beat it now. I just need to start enjoying my running again and stop chasing times.
Simon, I've entered the 10k. * I'll PM .Maybe Mrs. Mac would like to join me and a friend in the same pen?* It's being broadcast live, this year.
Good Morning all..
As is traditional, and possibly written in a European Law, when we get to August we sweep up the mess, turn off the lights here and close the door on the fun and tears of the prevous year. We then open a bright shiny new thread for the next year...
So.. any volunteers to start the Paris Marathon 2014 thread...?
I really enjoyed the Glasgow Half last year - it's the same day as Cardiff this year or I would be back to do it again. Shame they have cut out Pollock Park though...
I'm on it DV....
DV +1 for JM. Everytime a French person says J'en ai marre (I'm fed up ), I hear Johnny Marr.
Kaz - well done.
Aaaaaand we have a new hoose. It's gonna have to be good to live up to 2013....
