Post details of your last run and what you think of it
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!
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
sat morning 16.5 mile run 7.55 av great morning for a run
@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.
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.
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
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!
@ 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,
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.

Morning all, @ nessie - filth
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
