Post details of your last run and what you think of it
Had a week off work and haven't been online much. 50 miles last week which ended with a 22 effort for my longest trainng run of the plan. Swore I'd never train for a marathon again at mile 18 - horrible cold day - stong wind in my face - legs died at the end but I think it was my mind that broke really, due to the conditions etc. I started reaccessing what pace to hit the mara and everything. Feeling more positive today though...
Looking forward to the tapering of training!
Some good stories over the last week - hello to MLR newbs.
SR, that is an impressive 20miles - sub 3 looks pretty likely eh?!?!
Good work all,
Easy run at 6am. Cold but snow gone.
Mon 1.00pm - easy 8km with Fudge
sunny with a chilly wind but pleasant conditions in comparison to the weekend
respect to all those in marathon training - keep it going - both physically and mentally
run strong everyone
4M Tempo Run in lightly falling snow. Not a bad run.
Finally a change in the weather - at last!!!! Today was grey and cold instead of sunny and cold :-/
The lightest of wispy snow showers lasted throughout the run, tickling my cheeks as I went. Today was a 11 mile GA run with 6 x 100 strides. Garmin ran out of charge a mile from home, harumph.
Glad we've avoided the snow here - still bloody freezing though.
6 x 1k @ 7min/mile with 1 min recovery jogs - bit tired after Sundays long run but felt pretty comfortable with the pacing so gain a bit of confidence back at least.
@cidlad - forgot to say, great to see Fudge back out on the trails!
cheers DunkyD - Fudge is loving being out
Tue - 9.00pm - icy feel to the evening but no wind - woodland 8km - middle 3km at full pace - good little session to shake off a hard day at work
good running everyone
Been fortunate to have only a dusting of snow on Merseyside but the east wind has tried to cut me in two as I negotiate Crosby Beach. A glute twinge but no worse this eve. Stick to it!
10 mile recovery run on the treadmill this evening.
5M Steadily done.
Morning from a snow falling West of Scotland
11 miles into a vicious wind, it really cuts deep that icy wind,
Doesn't it just Marc?
8miles inc 5x600m @ 5k pace. Falling light snow again, nasty bugger of a wind, temps hovering around zero. The weather Gods are poking fun at us now.
Nice sunshine in Chelt this morning - still freezing though!
8 miles easy this morning - legs felt strong again and confidence restored! Roll on Brighton
distinct signs of a thaw in London...twice round a loop of Regent's Park and Primrose Hill for 11.5k at 5.30m/km...feeling pretty tired after Reading HM and the Orion 15 on consecutive weekends
Nessie - will definitely be heading back to Epping Forest soon. It's a beautiful place to run and it only took me 10 minutes longer to get there than Richmond Park! One of the Orion Harriers also told me about a midsummer fell race they organise, which sounds a lot of fun...
Five miles on the treadmill tonight.
Excellent session at the club this evening which I really needed as work continues to be gruelling. 7 x hill reps followed by 2 miles tempo. Felt really strong and a million times better.
Great running. Baldie, am pleased you're impressed with our forest one of my fave runs is mid-winter with head torches through the snowy forest. Magical
7am - beach and x-country combo, 5 miles or so and a minute faster than last time. Cold but v pleasant in the watery sun and greeting dog walkers on the wide Crosby sands
4.5M fartlek Hard. Snow on ground and lightly falling. It cushioned my footsteps !
It is 28th March, not 28th Dec with this snow ?
The sun is shining! 6 miles with 4 at mara pace this morning for me. Feeling good.
Have a good long weekend all and run off those hot cross buns and chocolate...
