Sunday 29/07/07 - 11:00am - Race - Chernobyl Challenge 10k, Preston.

6.215 miles - 37:32 (6:03/mile average) - Nike Vaporfly.

After yesterday's miseable effort and not being able to get my heart rate down last night I was in two minds wether or not to race today.

Woke and RHR was normal so I thought why not?

Felt good on my warm up and was feeling confident, two mile in to the race and I started picking off people, four miles in and I was still feeling good and making up places, at five miles my legs had gone. Still ran hard to the end but it was all over for a pb by then, I enjoyed the run and I've got a week of hard runs in my legs to bolster any excuses.

Went on a 9 mile run this morning wasn't quite sure how far to go but was feeling good at around about 5 miles so added a couple of extra miles to my planned 7. Nice and steadily 8 1/2 minute miles which is something I didn't think I'd be able to do 6 months ago.

Have a 10K race planned for next Sunday so will probably do 3 short 3 milers before then along with my club run on Wednesday.

Monday 30/07/07 – 12:15pm – Long Hilly Trail – Sandstone Trail (Pudding Lane to Hampton Green)

24.2 mile – 3:52:00 (9:35/mile average) - 3287 ft total ascent. Mountain Bear Galdiators(1).

Today was scheduled as an easy recovery run 35 mins/4.5 miles, instead I did a long trail run, because I felt like it.

Set off on a known route but wasn’t sure how far I’d get before I had to turn round. When I got to what should’ve been the turn round I just kept going, this happened about 5 times because I felt great, eventually a field full of bullocks made my mind up for me and I headed back. Oh dear! no wonder I was feeling good on the outward leg I had the wind behind me and now it was blowing hard in my face. Well I just had to get on with it and when I got back to the hills there was enough cover to shield me from the wind and things were fine again.

The time is an estimate as I stopped my watch by mistake at some point, but I know it was 12:15 when I set off and 4:07 when I got back, so that’ll have to do.

Another one of those “that’s what running is all about” runs!

Missed a few days last week as just couldn't seem to motivate myself, so started off in a small way again today.
Hilly 5k in 28.58 - felt good to be out in the sun.

One of those unfathomable days again. I woke up early and felt like death and forced myself out of the door. Another superb morning with the sun out but decidedly chilly first thing. I started out feeling like a 5 miles but got to the circus and decided to do the 7 instead. Ran mainly on my high arches today and does it show. Finally under 1 hour 5 minutes, yippee!

Fri 27th July - Wedding Day 7k - 42 mins

Been injured for a couple of years, just starting to pick up the fitness with lots of cycling with bits of running and decided to do this one really slowly.

Felt great to be out in the cool air - starting right at the back, no pressure and chatting to people on the way round. Felt even better to finally start to feel a bit stronger. Even managed a bit of a sprint finish :o) Lovely

Tuesday 31st July

Nice, everyone seems to having fun and that's what it's all about.

30/07/07 - 5k, slow shamble (never bother timing myself)

Tuesday 31/07/07 – 1:00 pm – Easy Trail – Moulton, River Weaver.

5.36 mile –41:13.87 (7:31/mile average) - 270 ft total ascent. Nike Air Zoom Ekiden.

An easy run around what possible is the course of the “Pie and Peas” race tomorrow, legs felt good after yesterday’s effort, a really enjoyable little run only spoiled by the fact that I destroyed another pair of shorts going through a gate (second pair in two days)

Weather was glorious, nice and sunny without being too hot, perfect for an easy jog.

31st July 2007 - 9.30am.

Was just intending to do a shortish run, but ended up doing 5 miles in 45 minutes.
Amazing you one can get quite carried away!

Felt great afterwards, and looking forward to more of the same tomorrow!

Wednesday 01/08/07 - 1:15 pm - Easy Trail - The Ridgeway.

3.84 miles - 31:56.27 - (8:19/mile average) - 649 ft ascent - Mountain Bear Gladiators(1).

Although I'm racing tonight I couldn't resist going for a run as the weather was beautiful, took it dead easy until I saw another runner and had to pick up the pace, I can't help being a little competitive, but I did feel good.

Beautiful run in the beautiful country! Brilliant!

Wednesday 01/08/07 - 7:30 pm - Race - Pie and Peas, Moulton.

5 miles - 31:05.22 - (6:13/mile average) - 242 ft ascent - Nike Air Zoom Ekiden.

I was feeling a bit apprehensive about tonight's race. The start was mental and it was a full on sprint to get a good positition through the gap, soon settled in behind someone I knew, I'd normally beat them but I thought I'd pace myself off them for the first mile or so. Passed them on the river and started picking up more places, I was feeling really good and when we got to the hill I didn't lose any ground, infact I actually made up some which is a change, in a good way. I ran hard to the finish and was made up with my performance.

Great run plus a fine pea and peas meal at the end, what more could you ask for?!

Well done Chris!

Wednesday evening-
5 miles up and down on the South Downs in 54.50. Hadn't done any off road for a while and felt hard - but the scenery made it worth the effort.

30/07/07

A mere 4 miles on a sunny Monday morning.
Time 37 mins

One of those runs where you put your iPod on and all the right songs come on, and you just want to wave your arms about with the joy of doing something you love. It was all road, hilly and not the prettiest of my runs but I loved it simply because I hadn't done this route in a while.

5 miles tomorrow at the crack of dawn with husband...should be lovely.

that last line should read "pie and peas" as peas with more peas doesn't sound to interesting.

For the first time that I can remember in a while, I slept through to the alarm this morning. So getting up was quite hard. You can tell the days are shortening now in the mornings as the sun was nowhere to be seen but the broken clouds had a golden edge to them. Good news as the run progressed the morning turned out to be lovely again.
The run never amounted to too much effort, and the heart rate never really moved. Not much to write about today except I must try harder next time. Maybe I should write it out a hundred times.
