Post details of your last run and what you think of it
Hello All and great running,
It's good when you don't want to go out but do and end up having a good run, that was me today.
I don't drink at all. Does that mean I don't have to run at all?
Monday 20/08/07 – 40 pm – undulating time trial(kind of) - Mouldsworth.
4.38 miles – 281.38 – 6:24 min/mile ave. - 283 ft asc.– Nike Air Zoom Streak Spectrum Plus (2) .

After two days off to get my head together, because I'd convinced myself I was burnt out again, I had a smashing little run on an undulating course run on quiet country lanes.
Pace was an important factor on today’s run as I need to know where I am and how I feel at race pace on hills. My pace was faster than anticipated but still comfortable(?). Maintaining the pace and the form on the undulations took a bit of concentration, but overall I’m more than happy with today’s run.
This route will be the mainstay of my training for the next two weeks. I thought I’d be hard pushed to get under 27:45 at 100% effort, but runnning at nowhere near that I ran 28.01, which is, in my opinion, excellent. Today I was targeting sub 30 mins and thought that would be good but I totally smashed that. I’ll be looking to get that time down to under 27:45 now, but not at the expense of killing myself.
Back to Happy!!
oops - my times have come up as smillies
should read 28 minutes 01 seconds and I started at 4 pm.
7.5 miles yesterday - first long-ish run in a while because of various annoying injury problems. Did it in 1 hour 9 minutes - faster pace than my 10K PB of 59 minutes 18 seconds - fingers crossed for a good time in the Great Yorkshire Run despite the lack of training (ho-hum)!
I'd intended going in the morning and ended up putting it off til 5.30pm, but felt really good and just kept running longer than I'd intended.
Am aching somewhat today, although this is mainly my irritating shoulders, neck and jaw which are an on-going issue that I really must get looked at.
Tuesday 21/08/07 – 3:55 pm – time on feet multi terrain run - Helsby, Frodsham.
13.1 miles – 1:52:24.92 – 8:34 min/mile ave. - 1689 ft asc.– Mountain Bear Gladiators (2)

Plan was to go out for 2 hours at an easy pace, take in some hills and enjoy the countryside and this I did for the first hour or so then I just died, so to avoid the hills on the way back I ran along the marshes which are dead flat, but I did this at a much faster pace, but before I came off the marshes I died for a second time and ended up walking back the last mile and a half. Ordinarily I would be very disappointed with the stop and walk thing but I’ve hardly eaten in the last 2 days so I’m blaming that.
5 miles from home and thru Bramhall Park avoiding the morning traffic, 36.31 though this felt like hard work. Have been doing too many short runs and speed work I think. I am on the RW sub 40 mins 10k plan and my race is the Boggart Hole Clough 10k. Here's hoping it works. Anyone else aiming for sub 40 10k in September?
