Post details of your last run and what you think of it
12 miles on the treadmill. Second longest run I have done on the mill. Not ideal.....
Fri - 9.30pm - 10km approx - felt like I was in a blizzard - that was fun!
Fudge was bemused as we ploughed our way round - running in the snow is one of the most enjoyable parts of the running year. Staying off the roads and pavements for a few days but sticking to the off road trails in the park and woods - much more fun
keep it going everyone
Have barely been able to run since early December when I got a bad case of shin splints trying to get back up to speed too quickly after the Noro-virus. Have tried a couple of times in the last few weeks but only managed 20 mins or so before the pain got bad, so have been swimming pretty much every day.
Decided to try a run in the snow this morning.... it felt great! There was no ice, just reasonably fresh snow and running on that felt more comfortable than I've felt for ages. Crossing the roads where there was no snow did not feel so great and then just as I was smiling to myself at how well it had gone, I fell right over on my knee but all in all a massive success for me. Only did 4 miles as didn't want to push my luck and it remains to be seen how my shin will feel later, but for now....
thanks for the kind comments... hope you feel ok gary im not going out in it today but will be going to clumber park tomorrow to have a run round the trails...hope everyone has a great weekend..keep warm..
Easy run earlier
Gary: Taking it easy on way back isn't awlways easy.
10 miles today, managed to knock four minutes off my previous PB for 10 miles
5 recovery miles on the treadmill today.
14m LSR in around 2 hours. 2 pee stops due to the disobedient bladder I have been inflicted with. Sub zero all the way, biting, rasping wind and lots of solid ice underfoot, eager to send me horizontal. Scenery was beautiful, arse was numb.
Sun 7.30am - 18km (88 min) - hilly comfortable pace run with the odd effort thrown in on the hills
pavements out of bounds so ran on the road - little traffic to worry about and being high vizzed up helps - the traffic was understanding and most realised that the pavements were a no go area - warmed my numb arse in the sauna afterwards
safe running everyone
10.85 miles on the treadmill. Had to stop due to heat and humidity.
7.6 km steady today, my training plan calls for 12km today but I haven't done anything all week due to ridiculous conditions in East Anglia so TBH I am super happy just to get some miles in, paths were super slippy but once I got to Mousehold Heath it was a pleasure, got a lot of funny looks and head shakes, looks like it's official I am one of those crazy people lol
Another 10 miles - treadmill. Quite fancied longer but had to walk to and from gym as it was!
decided Hyde Park loops would be best option and in fact the grip in the fresh snow was fine and i really enjoyed the run. 16k at 5.10m/km
there were a fair few runners out, but the most impressive sight was an OAP with a zimmer frame who must have covered about 400 yards in the 80 mins I was out. that's what i call a real effort!!
Another excellently snowy run today in about 5-6 inches of beautiful fresh snow with it coming down thick n fast throughout. About 4 miles very slowly. Got snowballed in the face as I got home, by my 12 year old son :-/ Got him back down the neck tho
Snowy, Hilly 15 miles today, very hard work, natures own version of resistance training!!!
The snow has finally hit Manchester so I was able to enjoy a 3.5m recovery run in lovely, crisp and grippy snow. Much safer than running on ice.
Sat - 6 miles over the trails of Leckhampton Hill. great fun garmin free and took my phone to grab a few snaps
Sun - was due for a 12 mile easy to tempo run but was just too icy. Managed to get to my sister's gaff for a go on her treadmill but was boored stupid after 9 miles. You guys that can do miles on a treadmill - that's will will power right there!
Mon 10.00am - 1 hour approx (garmin free)
Fresh snow overnight and a heavy fall this morning meant fun run with the dog - out into the woods and fields for some serious snow/mud slipping and sliding (need to find some good off road shoes)
Sometimes the distance and time don't really mean a thing and its just a case of get out there and enjoy - At the moment, the dog is comatose and curled in front of the radiator
fun running everybody
