Post details of your last run and what you think of it
It's starting to get harder to get out of bed at 6 am to run, as it's so much darker now, and I'm starting to wonder if I should invest in a head lamp, so that I can continue on my usual trails. Did 5.3 miles this morning - no wildlife of note this morning.
DunkyD: I sometimes get a fox visiting my garden!
Yup - 6am was dark as this morning - and chilly before the sun came up properly.
20 mins - easy, 20 mins hill work, 20 mins steady and a cool down
Animals: Bobby Robin and a bunny rabbit sat on the path. Loads of rabbits and squirrels and 6 magpies together - GOLD!
Last nights was a recovery run.. 4 miles swallowing little flys all the way round.. then I thought sod it.. and hit my MHR with a sprint at the end!
Tonight tempo lest do this!
12 by 400m on the track this evening.
Thur 7.00pm - 14km (63 min)
another warm evening with little breeze - first 4km easy and the final 10km with effort - still not where I want to be, but slowly showing signs of improvement
enjoying reading about everyone's running - keep it up
6 miles tonight. Didn't feel good for the first couple of miles, felt better in the middle and was flying along for the final two! Enjoyable run.
4.5M Steadily done. warm, dry and a bit windy. Not a bad run at all.
My last run was yesterday. The run itself was pretty uneventful as I'm on an easy week on my 5k plan.... other than seeing a seal in Faversham Creek!
A Seal - how exciting! I'm envious!
It felt a bit warmer this morning. Did 4 miles. My legs felt tired, so it was a bit of a slog.
Pressured for time and had to run as soon as I got back from work. I always feel lethargic when that happens. Measured out a 5K route for our village fun run at the weekend. Got to do the same with a 10K one later - kind of dreading it as the intended route has a monster hill halfway.
10k last night..Swallowed a fly ( or family of) at about halfway so stopped for about 30 seconds to gag..which is always nice..
The final couple of miles were 20 seconds or so p/m faster than i'm used to and felt relatively good at the end.. So that means there's an injury just around the corner!!
Paul T def wins on the wildlife spotting this week! I'm off to dartmouth for a week so will hopefully have some interesting spots on the coastal runs.
10.75M - easy this morning. My easy pace is now faster than this time last year's half marathon pace - woop woop.
Easy run this morning
DunkyD - enjoy exploring some different routes
Sat 9.00am - about 40 mins at easy pace
sunny and warm morning for a gentle run - bit of a loosener before tomorrows longer run - achilles strapped up - after starting, it takes about 15 mins before the discomfort reduces - however, I can manage another 5 weeks until marathon day - might then be time for an extended break from running - avoiding painkillers to mask the discomfort
dig in everyone and have a good running weekend
Went for a run on the treadmill at the gym this morning and l honestly feel like crying now. The treadmill reckoned l was at 2.5 miles after 24 minutes. That obviously equates to 10 minute miles or thereabouts. When l go out on the roads my ipod says im clocking 7 minute miles which would give me a time of 42 minutes for the 10k i've been training for for about 4 months now.
WTF is happening?
l know l probably shouldn't, but im questioning the accuracy of the treadmill and not my ipod. Im trying to ratify in my head what pace it felt like l was going and my cadence did feel the same as l was out on the streets so that leads me to believe that maybe the treadmill is right and im a million miles away from running a sub 45 10k.
Goodbye cruel world...............
felt like some speedwork after a very stressful week at work, so hit Battersea Track for 5x6minutes at Tempo (4.40m/km) with 60 secs recoveries. good session, enjoyed working up a sweat in the midday heat.
@Gareth Edwards. I would suggest you do your local Parkrun next Saturday, which will give you an accurate idea of your time. (which i suspect is nearer the ipod pace, so relax!)
Started running about four weeks ago. My better half entered me in the Sheffield TenTenTen in a couple of weeks. Used to be reasonably fit, but never really ran, and I haven't done any exercise at all in over 2 years.
I've been doing mainly 5-7km three or four times a week, with the odd 3km at speed(maybe once a week).
Went on my first Parkrun this morning and got 23:12. I'm chuffed with myself to be honest.
