Post details of your last run and what you think of it
Thanks Baldie.. I was thinking along the same lines myself and having a look at St Albans Half on 9th June, with a view to really trying to focus on times (and running my own race!). That would also give me a couple of months to make sure I'm consistently fitting in a session a week of speed work, rather than the piece meal way I've been doing it up until now...
Morning you lot
Cold one up here today
A hill session done off road. 6 x Hills. Mile warm Up/Down
Some cracking training going on.
Baldie - Brilliant result, you nailed that PB and then some, very well done. Sounded like a great race all round.
Ivor - Excellent stuff, glad you had fun
Nessie - Damn, that's a real bummer but really, there's not much wrong with racing for the fun of it rather than to smash a PB every time but of course, you need to have that expectation before you set off. Definitely get another one done to get over the frustration! Luckily, all my friends are lazy feckers who don't run so I don't share you trouble
For me, first day of taper was 8 miles with 5x 600m 5k pace repeats. Hardly an easy session.
Mon 2.00pm - 10km off road mixed terrain with Fudge
cooling breeze and hazy sunshine made for an enjoyable run - met a couple of runners who also had their dogs out for a run - One of them is in the process of setting up a local 'cani-cross' club - for runners with dogs - apparently it is popular in Europe and in the south of England but there is very little going on in the north - not yet anyway
ivor - well done
hoping all the marathoners are staying injury free
Baldy - great PB
SB - welcome to the lovely land of Taper!
Sat - gentle 3 miles / Sun - 10 miles at race pace.
By managing not to die, I finished the off-road Baildon Boundary Way HM last Sunday in 2:17. 10 years ago, I managed 1:41 God's Own County looked glorious: an early chill, no wind and gently veiled sunshine. Paths, trails, fell, canal tow path, a little road, moorland, and the gallops where Aurora Encore trains under Sue & Harvey Smith! At the finish, piping hot showers, bacon butties & ice-cold Coca Cola!
Of course, I'm a little the worse for wear today but well worth it!
Swittle - that run sounds lovely, glad the injury didn't stop you!
12 x 200m @ 5k pace with 1 min jog recoveries and a miles warm up and cool down. Wearing in some new trainers ahead of Sunday and today was the first day they felt perfect. Getting excited and scared now!
Keep up the good work all,
Nice one Baldie (stunning time...) and Swittle (in awe as ever of the hardcore!)
Dunky - be really careful with new shoes shortly before a marathon, mate...can be recipe for disaster...they've got to be worn in...
Cheers Baldy - I've worn them about 5 times so far with another 10 miles ish before the race so hopefully they'll be good. I'll def switch back though if they're still a bit stiff
Still breaking myself back in reasonably gently from an enforced break due to work and the weather.
Put in a mile and half round the local lake then decided l needed to stick 5 x 100m steep hill sprints in there as well and really opened the lungs up. First time I've done any hill work in months and it was pretty brutal. Really emphasises how quickly you can lose your base level of fitness if you let it slip for more than 6 weeks or so.
I'll incorporate some gym work tomorrow with a ten minutes on the treadmill to loosen my calfs as they're really quite stiff this afternoon from this mornings run.
Then i'll pump ze guns in de gym to make the ladies go weak at the knees come summer
5.2 miles to Crosby beach to bid goodnight to the Iron Men brought up 800 days of Streaking tonight.
7 miles plus strides tonight.
swittle - a fine achievement
Tue 9.00pm - 5km woodland trail - gradual increase in pace throughout - short in distance but still worthwhile
happy running everyone
Thank you, Cidlad - most kind
Easy back JT
Swittle - 800 days, that's 10 times around the world! Are the iron men going or are you moving???
4 miles plus 5 x 100 race pace strides for me thins morning. Getting excited for Sunday now,
Dunky - Good luck!
Swittle - Epic, well done!
4m easy run today. Shorts and T-shirt, loving it!
4M Easy/ Steady this morning. Just a plod.
