5 mile recovery run.


A GA is a general aeorbic session.  In the P & D marathon program it is any run between 6 and 10 miles inclusive other than recovery or tempo runs.  Just an ordinary run done at a moderate but not slow pace.

'Porker' = hamstring [pork/ham], a term I met in my rugby playing days.  Thus, women as well as men have them.  'Pulling a porker' means straining a hamstring muscle

0645 Chilly but still, no frost, and a mix of streets, trail & beach.  5 miles.

4M Steady done. Dry, cold. Enjoying being back .

6m steady, 1.5 with the fur.  Slight sleet to start with but a very nice run indeed.

Swittle - Rugby Union was my sport growing up, played as a lock forward for my local town.  I never heard that expression once!  I like it though

Happy days, SB - I played at school, then took it up again in my 30s.  That led to me starting to run, after a knee injury drained my confidence for playing contact sports.

7am A damp, cold morning but fine once I got going.  My pal managed 10 mins and I headed off to the prom to complete a useful 5.2 miles.

Keep it going, folks!

very boggy, soggy and foggy 19 miles along the canal trails, great fun.

3.2 mile what-was-supposed-to-be-a-recovery-run

most definitely not a recovery run; took the dog who insisted on speeding along. gave me the chance to use my new foam roller though!

11 mile medium long run tonight.

Some good training going on.

6.2 miles. Bit disappointing, I wanted to do 8-9 really but got sabotaged by a) my first Fat Fighters -- I mean Weight Watchers meeting, which boringly went on for over an hour.  And b) the unexpected announcement late in the day yesterday that we're going to be Ofsted-ed on Monday. So need to ensure my paperwork's in order and am really tight on time until then

Not guaranteed to brighten your weekend, Nessie - hope it all goes great!

18 mile long run today.  Found it hard after last night's 11 mile MLR.  Was scheduled just to do a five mile recovery today with the 18 miler tomorrow but is my anniversary on Sunday so decided to switch.

13 miles today, scored a pb finally broke 1.40! Felt great!

4 miles around the large and small blocks, happy with progress as very recently returned to running after 15 months. Crispy and cold - need to find my running gloves

12/01/2013 at 14:58

7am start, and another 15 minutes' running with my chum as she eases back after injury; I then headed for the prom and logged just short of 5 miles altogether.  Bitter east wind heralds snow

Sat 2.00pm - pilates class followed by 7 steady miles - started with fully stretched (but lactic acid filled) muscles so found it quite tough

good running everyone

Sun 7.00am - 16.3km (79 min)

frost laden pavements but surprisingly less slippy than anticipated - easy paced run with friend - rounded off with a warming session in the steam room - came back with a glow in my cheeks

keep it going everyone

Met League cross country at Perivale yesterday. Course was pretty much continuous bog with no opportunity to really get going and no hope of getting any power on the slopes. Course was supposedly 8k but I made it 9.05. Anyway, got round in 45.40 and failed -- again - to make the top 300.

curious sport is running - can't understand how you can go from PB form to a dismal performance in a week!

13/01/2013 at 12:06

the terrain makes all the difference, wouldn't judge your form on a race like that

8 miles, begun steady and finished the last two miles half a minute faster than goal hm pace. 

13/01/2013 at 12:30

10 miles felt great again, absolutely gorgeous out - cold but sunny and crisp! Good stuff!
