Post details of your last run and what you think of it
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
Holy moley was that wind cold today... It whipped me in the face and made it tough to breathe for half the route but still came really close to my 5m PB on this evenings tempo run. Good recovery from saturdays 12. Pleased with myself!
Strangely Brown, so kind of you to comment Have to agree about what my Dad would have called a lazy wind - cuts through 'cos it can't be bothered to go around 4.1 miles before 7am today through the Coastal Park & over Brook Vale rec. A hard ground frost had banished the puddles!
11.5miles the strangest run for weather ever, it went from sunshine snow sunshine blizzard gale force wind sunshine crazy
5m recovery with strides this morning, 1.5m with a very excitable hound. Very cold again but bright and sunny at least.
Marc.S - I agree. Even wierder - there was bright sunshine and snowflakes, but no clouds for about half an hour - it must have been blown over faster than the clouds I guess!
about 8 miles for me with 4 x 2km @ 7:01 min/mile and 2 min recoveries in the middle. I took in the racecourse this morning to get some of the festival atmosphere - may be snowed off now!
Tue 9.30pm - interval session for a change
1.5km warm up (5 x 600m with 1 min recovery) 1.5km warm down
short but not so sweet
good running everyone
10 miles recovery on treadmill tonight.
Cidlad - Very similar to my session. Did 8 miles with 5x600m intervals @ 5k pace and about 1.5 min recoveries. How's the hound by the way?
Really enjoyed it, dry bright and cold again here.
Lovely morning here too - not quite as cold, bright sunshine by 7am - lovely.
10 miles easy - legs feel just about back to normal.
Keep it up all,
Strangely Brown - thanks for enquiring about Fudge - he gets his stitches out on Saturday and hopefully I can start to get my running companion back into his routine soon after
Wed 8.00pm - easy 6km on a cold but still evening - woodland trail - enjoying the easy runs at the moment - no races planned but I may have a go at a parkrun next week to see how little speed I have in my legs
impressive running everyone
Cidlad- sounds like good news about Fudge.
Great running all
Mine isn't great. I've done something to my shoulder which is very sore and I'm wary of not getting injured since a friend of mine had similar last year and had to defer her marathon place 2 weeks before the event... So a very tentative 5 mile club run for me tonight. It doesn't feel worse but not any better...
15 mile medium long run tonight.
Look after that shoulder Nessie and I'm looking forward to welcoming Fudge back to MLR cidlad!
A nice swift 5miles for me this morning with midlle 3 at mara pace. Lovely fresh morning with bright sunshine.
Good luck with Fudge tomorrow Cidlad, glad to hear he's nearly back
Today was the first run in the rain for about a month. Not heavy but steady rain throughout. 10.5 miles done, 8 at LT pace.
I did bugger all ....... how do you like them apples?
On your last run, you didn't run????
3 easy miles this morning - bit odd running for just 3 miles but just followed the plan and went with it! Made me think back to 3 years and 3 stone ago when 3 miles had me crying...
Keep it up troops,
Im tapering, or whatever the technical term is when you cant be a..ed to run before a big race.
