Keeping our group together
Ffran, sounds like a very determined lady who wont be beaten!!!!!! Sensible is not always best but I think to start with it has to be!!!!! Thats good mileage, are you training for another race??
Just take it easy, we dont want to see you burn out and not be able to run again!!!!!! Sensible training will still get the results!!!!!! I suppose 4 months should be ok considering the distances you have been running, just dont try to storm it. A Marathon is just another race, you are just on your feet for longer!!!! I found that at Edinburgh.
have to juggle the training plan around this week as i said before were off to Leicester on Friday so have counted the park run Saturday as the 3 miler i should have done today and replace it with my LSR of 8 miles then it's a 5 tomorrow and the gym session on Wednesday well that's the plan any way
ffRAN your making me feel tired just reading what you've been up to
Well another three laps of the Park, a little slower than yesterday but not surprised. Had to run tonight to fit in with his weeks plans so no I am not doing too much!!!!
Well done Toby, using the plan like that makes it fit your lifestyle and thats what they are for, as long as you are happy with your weekly mileage thats the important bit!!!
well 8 miles done yesterday not shore about the time as i had to call into the dentist to arrange an appointment and forgot to turn my Gramin back on only realized when i had gone about half a mile
Seejay did you run down through highridge village yesterday if so i was the chap you past in the black running vest going the other way
Well did the 5 miles am feeling wiped out today so did them on the tread mill as recovery run i.e. walk 1 k run 1k will do the gym session tomorrow then that will be done for this week won’t run again then till next Monday
how about a shotgun or failing that and air horn
Well was supposed to do a gym session yesterday but got up feeling shattered so in the end had a rest day instead will defiantly have to do it today as i won’t have time Friday
gone very quite on here were everyone gone
Toby, all my running so far has been in Greville Smyth and I drive there so probably not me. I was dressed in light blue running top, white cap and and navy shorts. It really sounds like this is your year, I think there are a few more pb's to come!!!
Ffran, Seagulls are very territorial and will atack anything coming anywhere near their nest. I had to run some temporary telephone cable from the roof of a building once in BT and there was a nesting gull about 20 yards away. We had to get someone to stand shotgun for us and the council would not attempt to move them because they where nesting. I suspect you will just have to wear helmets until the fledglings have left. I dont think it takes long for them to get out and fly!!!! Anyway, back to running, yes it was a beautiful evening but so warm in Bristol, I only ran 1.3 miles again and I was soaked as if I had done a half marathon!!!!!
As I just said, I did another run tonight, 1.3 in 11.58, I am hoping in the next couple of runs to start increasing the mileage but still on grass!!!!! Stil feeling ok but getting a little nervous about preparation time before Cardiff and Bristol!!!!
well off to Leicester later today staying the night in our favorite hotel and then it's my turn to stand on the sidelines and cheer tomorrow for the wife and daughter instead of the other way around then traveling home on Saturday afternoon
well back from Leicester not quite the weekend we had planed go up there all right traffic not to bad found the park Ok were just checking in to the hotel when the wife got a text to say it had been cancelled and rearranged for July so we stayed any way went over to Morrison’s to tell the daughter as she was working there she was disappointed
So in the end the wife and daughter went out for a run this morning i went with them in spirit but the bed needed keeping warm you understand so i volunteer to do it was just one of those dirty jobs that had to be done
Toby, I am not surprised it was cancelled, the rain up there has been horrendous, there will be other races, I know thats not much of a consellation when you have spent all that money getting there and the hotel as well!!!! I know what you mean about the dirty jobs, these women just dont understand the hardships we go through!!!!!
Plan is to do another run tomorrow, and probably monday, I wont be running next weekend as I will be at Silverstone for the Grand Prix for the whole weekend!!!! I just hope the weather is fair, my first ever F1, would be nice evn if it is just dry!!!!!!
Nessie, lovely to hear from you again, thought another one had deserted the ship!!!!! So sorry to hear you are having so many problems, sounds a little like my wife, I forced her to retire at the end of March because of pains in her arms and shoulder from her job. Its no June and she is still suffering. She has seen a chiropractor and now seeing an osteopath I recommended and I think it is just starting to make a small difference!!! Just get back to health first before thinking of running again.
Sorry to hear you've been unwell Nessie.
Toby - a blow having the race postponed at such short notice.
Off to a Wedding today down in Oxwich Bay on the Gower - should be fun.
