Post details of your last run and what you think of it
5 miles in the dark and forgot I was going off road and didn't take lamp - middle mile of a wobbly hill section completed safely.
Toying with entering Abingdon - anyone doing it?
Very gentle 5m recovery run this morning. Got a little wet but nothing serious
Nice running MLRers
Me- 8.5 mile along the River Lea this morning. Very nice and some fairly tasty splits for me. This half stone I've lost in 3 weeks on Weight Watchers may be speeding me up a little? Another half to go...
was a quick five miler on tuesday in gale force winds- should have gone out today but an ear infection left me unbalanced and queasy.. so i've taken to reading everyone elses excursions and wishing they were mine
hope everyone has a good weekend
Pride before fall....calf strain resurfaced, reducing me to a 1.1 mile streaksaver...
11 mile medium long run tonight.
well done Nessie 73
Fri 9.00pm - 11.1km (47 min) - tempo run
felt like putting a bit of effort in this evening - ran it fairly hard - bit more spring in the legs today
run strong everyone
I tried the new local parkrun this morning, which is precisely 0.6 miles from home. It was fun, friendly and very very boggy, wet and muddy. Have no idea of time but I imagine ploddingly slow from the number of times I slipped / got my shoe stuck in the bogs.
LT interval session in Battersea Park last night. Warm up then 4x7mins at 4.25m/km then Cool down. Need to make tomorrow's long run a very long one to prepare for Wokingham.
@nessie73 good work - you'll be looking like Patsy Kensit in no time!
7 mile GA run plus 10 by 100m strides this lunch time.
Sat 4.00pm - 6km woodland trail - threw in 4 x 90 sec efforts for good measure - cheeky little session due to time constraints - every little counts
baldbloke - good training - what was the recovery between the efforts?
good running everyone
Calf a little worse and the Streak is now in some doubt
swittle - don't leave me in suspense.............
Sun 8.00am - 20.5km mixed pace - (97 min)
miserable conditions as the wind and rain increased as the run went on - ran in shorts for the first time in a while so optimism that the freezing weather has abated - warmed up in the steam room afterwards and let the warmth penetrate to my bones
keep it going everyone
21 miles this morning.
Swittle - nooooooo - how's the calf? did you get out?
Sat - 4 miles Easy
Sun - 13 miles tempo run - training plan was 7:19 min/mile which I managed until the final 2 then had to slow a bit what with horrible headwind and dying of thirst. I've reached that point of needing some water/fuel on longer runs I think. I used to be fine upto 17 miles but that was plodding. These effort runs are taking it out of me. Hate carrying stuff though!
Good work all,
rubbish day and felt rubbish too, after waking up with shivery, achey man flu. nonetheless, headed out and knocked off Oxford Circus-RegentsPark-Primrose Hill-Gospel Oak-Hampstead Heath and back for 16k at 5.30m/km. a little bit slower than normal, but understandable
@cidlad 120sec recoveries. i'm doing the same LT sessions as the spring marathoners in the club, which i figure should more than set me up for my halves.
@swittle fingers crossed for a streaksaver
Swittle - what happened? Hope you made it out.
DunkyD - I use a running belt for long runs, came with it's own bottles. I hardly notice it's on now.
Rest day today, much needed after a reasonable session on the ale and whisky Saturday night. 16 miles yesterday with 10 at 7.20 projected/hopeful marathon pace average (lots of hills so have to even it out). Really enjoyed the run.
