We're behind, guys....
Off you go
20m with 12 at MP for me- ran too fast and am suffering now- feeling totally wiped out 0.51m warm down followed, so 20.51 to add
Recovery week on the horizon
Feeling better now Legs still ache....
Not surprised JD, it was hot out there is a stealthy fashion today (was here anyway). Thin cloud at first, alomst no breeze, but the sun soon burned through. Thought I'd rehydrated properly after, but actually realised I wasn't abput 3 hrs later.
Swapped my planned 11m run on Saturday for a proposed 20.7m with some guys with club on (flatter than I'm used to ) trails. Arrived and was told plan was 22. Completed all sweaty after a road hill (I wouldn't have run if training alone) 23+ So not quite a "getting lost" extra miles, but extra miles by virtue of following others plans Feel ok though, if a tad stiff-legged as quite a bit faster than my hilly LSRs of late.
Oh and to go back to the "animal sitings" discussion of a few weeks back today was sheep (normal), red kite (fairly regular, but worth a mention) and a dead grass snake (common, but somewhat rare roadkill in my experiance).
DE- Have to laugh about hot- we had thunderstorms and flash floods here Well done on the swap!!!
The aching legs are mainly due to running 20m with 12 at a too ambitious MP......
Well done on the run Jason! What does a recovery week look like for you? Just one run a day?
@YP - well done on the 17 miles - im impressed you could work out where you were going! I have a horrid sense of direction!
We had a really hot day yesterday so I just tried to stay in the shade. Am in Frankfurt this week and they had a huge storm last night so its nice and cool this morning - i think i'll enjoy my run tonight!
Well done on all the good running folks. just updated 17.8 in total for yesterday's and today's runs. Still feeling a bit sluggish, but nice to get out briefly onto some trails this morning.
Emmy recovery= mid 80s
Jason I think one of your recovery weeks would destroy me.
13.38 logged this evening after work. No time for solid food before meeting friends in the pub. Spent the night sipping coke looking a "horrible shade of gray"
Edit: Can't spell.
5 and a bit miles last night followed by 11 and a bit miles this morning.... i struggled in the middle of this mornings run but felt great at the end after a quick detour past a shop to get a sugary drink. Somehow last night I managed one of the fastest tempo runs i've ever done... and for the last mile i was carrying my dinner!
I agree with Tom - Jason - your recovery weeks are crazy!
How is everyone else doing?
10.02m for me this morning before breakfast- easy pace, but found it tough going today. Never mind, low glycogen=good fat burning session and resting up now for 24 hours. I love recovery weeks
First 100m of the month logged for the team
Just over 6m av ahead at the moment- but very early yet....
Resting for an entire 24 hours? Crickey - take care of yourself!
I think we need to make sure that we're keeping the pressure on them. We dont want them to get ahead and have a huge lead
Hi all, just thought i would introduce myself and say hello, and i hope you dont mind me joining in the challange
should do about 100 mile this month in prep for the GNR
All RW runners are welcome How is your training going?
S3- welcome aboard
S3 welcome. Is this your first GNR?I'll be up there too, PB chasing.
Well after yesterdays run, and being on my feet from 9 till 3 watching the triathlon I've got legs that are about flexible as granite. There was a loud moan of pain as I sat down to write this. So no run tonight, just foam roller, and hopefully up early tomorrow.
