Post details of your last run and what you think of it
Eek for Dunky's intervals - and boo to tendonitis, SB. Hope you're soon fixed.
Out at 7am with run bud to Coastguard Station & back down the beach, where the last high tide had brought in fields of seaweed! Back home over the dunes, pleased that the hip pains of last night had subsided.
Cheers Cidlad and swittle.
SB - hope it's a speedy recovery mate. Enjoy your break and rest up!
Up at 5:30 for 12 steady miles this morning. Last 2 were tough.
Keep it up all.
JT141 - I adore Escher's art
Haven't run all week as I've been recovering from Cheddar Half Marathon (first half marathon) on Sunday in 3 hours 45 ... eeesh. Probably the toughest run I've ever done so hoping and training for a better time for the Bristol Half in a few weeks time!
SB re tendonitis I had achilles tendonitis when I first started running that got so bad I couldn't even walk! I took it to Physio for a few sessions and with ice/stretching it's now back on top form. You may still get niggles after a few months though. It might be worth getting running shoes with arch support when you start back up!
SB- take it easy mate. And that sounds like a bloody lot of driving!
Me- 5k race cross country with the club. Appalling time of about 31 mins. Ho hum
4M Steadily done. Okay run. Need to catch up son
JT and swittle - you northerners are cultured!
EllaDuv - that sounds tough going, good luck for Bristol
Nessie - That's not a bad time for someone in their 40s...
4.7m recovery for me this morning. Showers and warm. Nasty.
(PS - guess who noticed the bold function a couple of days ago - fast learner eh)
Last run on Saturday 17th Aug - 10.7k 45:12 nice and easy, hoping to get out tonight for a steady 4 miler.
Lol! Culture vulture, me - and I've been to Barnsley too [to run a HM many summers ago].
DunkyD - it's format city from now on!
6.30am - one of my trail & beach based routes, about 5.2 miles and more spritely than of late.
Thur 9.00pm - 5km woodland in the dark with Fudge for company
lack of time made for a swift one this evening - might even call it a tempo run - anyway it was good to let of a bit of steam after a less than pleasant day at work
JT - good analogy - Escher - you learn something new every day
cultured running everybody
4M Easy legs heavy today.
Cidlad - good to see Fudge getting some tempo work in too!
1 mile WU / 2 x 3miles @ HM pace (2 min rec) / 1 mile CD
5 miles for me this morning.
0630 Up to Burbo Bank, turning at the Coastguards' Station, and down a beach scoured cleaner by a high tide. About 50 minutes. Cloudy, warm and still - the wind, not us!
35mins easy off road in the 'smiry' rain (again)
7am. Last one with running buddy as she heads back to Russia tomorrow for 3 months. Up to the Coastguard Station, then down the beach, avoiding pools & rivulets from a very high tide. Felt like walking on water at times! Around the Marina on the sand hills and home via soaking wet trails. 7 miles, great fun, especially meeting 5 Irish Wolfhounds by the Baths. Four got out of a Suzuki jeep to say hello - quite magnificent - and so wise & gentle.
Here's an Iron Man with balaclava to protect from the mist & drizzle.
I run at dawn and dawn is a little later now than it was when I was enjoying the light of mid June. This morning I managed to run for thirty seconds; I'd built my hopes up for a run to be considerably longer after having a ten day period off. In fact it wasn't thirty seconds-I walked for twenty five paces then ran the same and did this as a repetition. Good going huh? Then the pain came back in my calf and I knew the damned thing was still not ready! Thirty five years of running in the blood and not running doesn't seem right. I consider how Ron Hill has managed to run EVERY day for donkeys years even when he has had really bad things wrong with him! I COULD go out everyday and jog for twenty five paces and it would be ok but it's the distance and time out that I crave! Another two weeks before a real attempt again! Patience is something I really learned when I had PF and I'm drawing on that patience now. I can still say sh**! though.
