Post details of your last run and what you think of it
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.
8.17 mile run clocked yesterday evening, more stats on my garmin page http://connect.garmin.com/activity/269391475
3 Easy miles, first run in 2 weeks and got soaked !
Very windy this morning so opted for the mill. A mile or so it, as usual, I wished I hadn't as the sweat began to stream out of me like I was a one man irrigation system. Was supposed to be 8 miles but got fed up after 7 so stopped. Back outside tomorrow - whatever the weather.
JT141 - welcome back
birkmyre - back into it steadily
Mon 9.00am - easy 6km muddy trail with Fudge - one episode of him going one way round a tree and me the other resulted in a bit of a tangle - otherwise no problem - he would run close to me without the lead but we have to cross a road and he is not yet quite there on the highway code
dig in everyone
Sunday 2pm, track at a country park, long / slow, 15km, 1:29:44
Was really pleased I finally managed to pace myself with occasional references to the CardioTrainer app on my phone. I managed to keep it so every mile was 9-10 minutes instead of fluctuating anywhere between 8.30 & 11.30 as I have in the past.
Morning from a snowy West of Scotland.
Nice 3.5M run on freshly fallen snow
Okay so i'm a big kid running in snow
cidlad: Yup easing back into it.
Wondered what on earth i'd stepped out into this morning. Dark, cold and driving hail in my face with very strong gusts of wind trying to drive me back in the centimetre of fresh snow that had fallen. I could cope with it if it wasn't for the hail pinging into my eyeballs - not a nice sensation!
Anyway, it eased off and I got in 5 miles, 1.5 with the dog, recovery-ish run.
Intervals this morning - 16 x 200m at 6:30-6:40 min/mile with 1min recoveries
Hit all the splits but my legs were not happy with me after Sunday's effort. Looking forward to tomorrows Easy!
We haven't heard from swittle on here for a couple of days - eeek
@Birkie- great to see you back, have missed your updates. Have you been injured?
@swittle-- on the edge of my seat... hope you haven't broken the streak??
@baldbloke-- haha re Patsy Kensit... actually I think she's pretty 'orrid.. but still, I wish!
Me- just a nice easy 4 miles through boggy Epping Forest. Bracing, wet and muddy
