Easy session in daylight ! Nice change.

Sat 10.00am - park and woodland with Fudge - 8.3km (37 min)

lovely cool conditions for running - paths and trails are drying out a little and are easier to negotiate

good running weekend everyone

15 mile medium long run this morning.  Swapping Satutrday for Sunday as going out tommorow.

10 miles, had a week off, my bones have felt a bit creaky!

23/02/2013 at 15:34
Redjeep, Swittle. good luck with the recoveries
As for me, 8x800m at 4.15m/km (60 secs recoveries) plus the run to the track and back (3.5k at 4.45m/km). decent session!

9.75 miles road running. My problem left shin has been a bit tingly so strapped it up. Didn't want to push to hard, but still a respectable 1hr15. Keeping it strapped but felt and feels okay. Nearly got run over on a country lane by a driver who felt 6 inches between me and them was more than an adequate gap to blast past me at 40mph.

Cheers, baldbloke - kind of you to say

Another 25 mins in the cold, clear air near Crosby beach and the leg feels a tad easier than last night.

Sun 7.30am - 90 mins easy paced running (18.9km)

cold with a biting wind which felt like it got through to the bones - enjoyable but one of those runs where I was glad when it was over

good running everyone

Eight mile run followed by10 by 100m strides this morning.

First outdoor run today in about 18 weeks. I did 90 minutes along the local canal. My Garmin was flat so not sure of the distance, but would say it was about 17 - 18km. Really enjoyed it, the weather was lovely and crisp, no wind and the thin layer of ice on the canal was melting as I ran along the towpath.

I wish I'd gone a bit earlier as I reckon the frost would have been really pretty. My ankle held up well and I went for an All You Can Eat Chinese with Mrs RJ afterwards.

Thanks Baldbloke for the wishes.

@SR got to do some "strides" later as part of a new programme prescribed by the coach at my club.  he wants my recovery runs to incorporate "6 bursts of 15-20secs of strides, not flat out, but around 800m pace"

can you shed any light on what this means? elsewhere on RW, strides are defined as "a relaxed easy sprint". baffling stuff.

Hi BB,

I do my strides as part of the P & D marathon program.

I sprint for 100m, slow jog or walk for 100m, sprint 100m etc.  Set the Garmin workout for the intervals so it beeps at each change of pace.  100m takes me about 18/20 seconds.  The gap between the sprints should be sufficient to allow you to get your breath back and enable you to do them all at a similar pace.

The program usually stipulates a moderate pace run to warm you up followed by the strides, this morning it was 8 miles but has been 6 or 7.

Eight and a half miles in 1 hour 15 ish for my last long run before Silverstone next weekend, and the start of my first marathon preparation and my weight loss adventure.

Great North West Half Marathon for me.  Really good event, got round in 1.28.56.  PB but it was only my second HM so that was kind of expected

I've been away with hubby for our anniversary for the weekend so very little running going on.  I squeezed in a sneaky 3 miler on Friday morning before we left, then we did a 3 mile very easy together along the River Stour on Saturday morning.. Hubby's *not* a runner but I can be persuasive

24/02/2013 at 22:23

thanks for the explanation, SR!

8k recovery run in Battersea Park at 5.20m/km with 5x20sec strides.

Congrats, Strangely Brown - that's an HM PB anyone would be proud of.

as for Nessie 73, I imagine an anniversary weekend involves other forms of cardio exercise!

25/02/2013 at 09:26

Morning all,

@ nessie - filth

@ Strangely Brown - nice work - great time!

Sat: 4.5 miles of not too hard fartlek

Sun: 18 miles easy. Felt really good and even put in a couple of quicker mniles at the end.

Keep it up,


25/02/2013 at 09:40

Cheers chaps, it was a very pleasing outcome.  Wasn't sure if I could go sub 1.30 or not so nice to prove that the training is starting to pay dividends.

ha ha!

Just a 5 mile recovery run today.  Crisp, dry and light at 6.40am.  Birds were tweeting, sun was peeping out from behind the clouds and suddenly, a Monday in winter doesn't seem all that bad now....

Redjeep - nice one  

Strangely Brown - monster pb

Nessie 73 - I'm surprised you had enough energy for the saturday morning run

Mon - 9.00am - 8.3km (37 min) - ran the middle bit hard - lovely fresh morning for a woodland run with the hound

dig in everyone
