Post details of your last run and what you think of it
Some serious training going on
Surrey - what P+D plan are you doing and for what mara? Some immense sessions you're doing.
I had one hell of a hard, hard run this morning. 11 miles with 7 at LT. Heartrate was elevated from the moment I set off and I had to work at a heart rate much higher than I wanted to achieve splits much slower than I wanted and still felt like I was going to keel over at any moment. Strong, cold winds and a shared bottle of wine last night probably didn't help but it was a session to forget.
On and on,
11.5 miles today for me with a couple of friends. Very rainy but that kept us at a good temperature. Great run and felt strong at the end
5 mile recovery tonight.
I am doing the 55 to 70 mile plan. Did 70 miles last week. I am in training for London.
8 mile hilly tempo run this morning at 6.23 pace.
what's your target, Surrey. comfortably sub-3, I would think??
Sat 9.00am - 8.5km woodland trail
well done to all those in marathon training mode - it ain't easy - keep it going
good running weekend to all
Evening, folks! Feeling decidedly grim out there: cold wind & driving rain - wind chill tomorrow
0730 A decent 5-miler largely off road, taking in a mile of the beach and some trails over Rimrose Valley. Calf's behaving itself atm.
Run well, smile too!
20 mile long run this morning making it it 70 for the week.
BB, am aiming to go sub 3 hours at London. Did 3.11 at MK last year in the storm - my first marathon. I have upped the training a lot this year to get under three hours.
Sun 7.00am - 90 mins steady running (19.3km)
difficult running into a bitter wind with sleet for a large part of the run - tough but fun
felt better after a sauna/steam/jacuzzi warm down
push on everyone
cold and wet in London, and have got flu again, which I'm praying won't mess up the Reading HM for me next weekend.
Struggled round a Thames loop for 18k at 5.30m/km. Off to North York Moors tomorrow for some rest and gentle walking ahead of Reading but looks like it will be seriously grim up there!
Will watch your progress with interest, Surrey. looks to me like both you and Dunky are set for big PBs
Character-building conditions all round! First run over an hour for six weeks - biting east wind on the trails & beach, then over Rimrose Valley and home. A tad pooped now! 7 miles, give or take.
Happy mum's day to any fellow MLR mums. I had an excellent day of brekkie in bed, flowers, cake, huge Chinese meal, and ran off a few of the calories with a short 3 miles back home in the snow. Then a great soak in the bath with my youngest, who's 4. Excellent day
Morning from a snowy Erskine
4M Steady and not a bad run.
So cold this morning that i swear I saw the daffodils retreating back underground.
I had a slight sense of foreboding about the run this morning. I knew it was set to be cold and Bury had taken a battering by snarling easterlies yesterday which I wasn't liking the idea of running in. I felt the cold in the first mile or so and even with the layers, it wasn't comfortable. Once I warmed up though, the legs were light and bouncy and everything felt oiled and powerful. The sun rose in a cloudless sky and it turned into the most enjoyable run i've had in ages. We even managed a snow flurry from the cloudless skies but i'm still trying to figure if that was a mirage or not...
12m GA in the end.
Swittle - Fantastic to see you getting back
SR - that is hardcore.
SB - 58 mile is not to be sniffed at!
Good work all.
Sat - 4 miles fartlek
Sun 20 miles LSR - found it tough, legs still heavy from last Sunday. Although feel fresh this morning!
Was a busy week last week so not much forum time. But managed another 5 on tuesday, 4.5 on thursday and 12 on saturday.
The 12 was in 2:05:20 which is about 4 minutes faster than I wanted to be. Legs really felt it, the last half mile my legs fel like lead. But that said its a distance PR and puts me in good stead to beat my target time of 2:20 for my first 1/2 race in 2 weeks time.
Now the taper
Mon 7.30pm - 8.3km woodland trail in an icy wind - easy pace - enjoyed the fresh air this evening
dig in everyone
