Retford half on Sunday and in need of a good result after a por week of running for me. Anyone else racing?
First ton up of the month
Well done Jason. Good luck at Retford Dave, I've got Stafford 20 miler on Sunday. going to run it hard and see exactly where I am in preparation for Manchester marathon at the end of next month, hoping for under 2:20 on a hilly course will translate to 3:05 ish at Manchester.
Hip flexor a little sore this week (put my laces through one too many footballs last week, when will i learn???) Nice easy 5.23 miles this morning
JR- rest up, mate...
tempo effort trail parkrun this morning and an easy pace 10ish this evening. 13.40 for the day
Dave- best of luck- and anyone else racing. 24m LR planned for here tomorrow
1:14:24 and 3rd place wasn't bad. Snow and wind made it less than fun. At least I won my age group and added a 7 miler on the end albeit a 7 min/mile pace
MC Dave- awesome result!!!! Well done
24.27m for me today
Bloody hell Dave, thats a great result. And heres me happy with 2:19 at Stafford 20 miler today!!
The weather WAS a bit grim wasn't it??
Will be getting back into a stricter training program this week after being very slack for the last couple of months - hopefully daughters will cooperate by sleeping thorugh the night as between the three of them we have been woken up 3/4 times a week for the last couple of months
Also must get back to the doctors for another thyroid test as at last check up they were concerned that it was underactive and there is a history of underactive thyroid in the family.
Hope fully if can get this sorted and some undisturbed sleep I might find a bit more enthusiasm to get up and out for the morning runs again. I know once I am up and out I will enjoy it. I will hold off posting miles till later as wouldn't want to drag the average down too much.
CR- Hope you get back fighting fit
2 runs for 16.36 here today.
Recovery am + MLR + warm down pm= 20.68m for today
Rest day today so just did 5 miles first thing Racing on Saturday and Sunday this week!
Just had a call informing me that I was not successful with the internal job interview on Wednesday. Delighted with that as I can keep focussed on the training and don't have to worry about board reports and travelling to Cardiff and Bury St Edmonds every week.
Have a good weekend all
Have taken it "VERY" easy with my hip flexor (advice heeded Jason!) and had just two runs this week at a very slow pace. Plenty of stretches and listening to my body and it would appear things are back to normal. Not even the slightest hint of a twinge during my dynamic stretches this morning and a nice slow 5.5 miles around the lanes. Will have tomorrow off and resume Monday. My next aim is to get off the bottom of the league table
Enjoy your weekend peeps
6m this morning including leading the troops home in Parkrun, 10m lunchtime and 4m recovery this evening with a few bits along the way= 20.47m for the day
S3200H I agree with you.
Managed to avoid the worst of the weekend weather by going over to Bruges for a few days. Had a scattering of snow but not enough to stop me racking up some miles including a 22 which is 4.5 times around the town - boring but got it done!
2 big weeks to go now before London (well, big for me)
Looking like my first ever 300 mile month!
