ffRAN sounds wonderful and that a great time was had by all and well done on the running great mileage put me to shame
I'm back......Apologies for not posting any earlier, but things have been pretty hectic in my life since the operation. All good now though Anyway, just to let you know I managed my first post-op run last night, a very slow and easy 2½ miles, but it's a start. I've given myself 6 weeks to get back up to 10k distance and hopefully in that time the body will have recovered enough that I may get a bit of pace back as well. I'm aiming to run Castle Combe 10k in November and then Bath Half in March.
I hope you're all well and I apologise again for my absense, I wasn't ignoring you all really Have a good extended weekend everyone with whatever you get up to!
Perfect running weather down here today overcast and cool should have done 13 miles but for the first time in weeks the run felt easy
i had already decided to run the route i use when training for Brighton as the first 9 miles takes you away from home which i thought was a good idea as i have struggled at the end of the last few runs and the route i normally use takes me to close to home and the temptation to knock it on the head if it was going badly would be to great
I got to mile 10 and as i still felt alright in myself instead of turning for home decided to run along the docks and come back that way thinking it was about the same distance which proved to b e a sight miss calculation on my part as by the time i got to the end of the docks i had done 11.5 and it was still about 2 miles from home
any way run was still feeling good buy the time i got to mile 13.5 but to get home from there meant going up a steep hill which to be honest i didn’t fancy so came back the slightly longer way through our local woods which is flatter and finishing at the bottom of a path that i use as a stopping point on my 8 miles runs as it leads up and out of the woods and comes out more or less at the bottom of my road i use the walk as a cool down
in the end i ended up doing 15 miles the whole thing took 2:27:14 with an Avg pace of 9:46 which i was pleased about as i was aiming to keep the pace in the 9,s hand one disappointing 11m/m don’t know what happen there
out with the O/H tomorrow to keep her company as she has 12 to do
ffRAN well done on the run
Well what a wonderful day for a run just back after going out with the O/H on her LSR she had 11 to today so we decided to use our 3 mile loop around the docks as it a nice run with plenty of toilets available
we started off really well and she was maintaining the walk 5 run 5 that she intends to use for Brighton really well and so we decided that as the day was just about perfect and it was a bank holiday which meant plenty of rest time that we would try 13.1 miles as she running the Cricklade H/M in October to see if she could do the distance and give her that mental boost of knowing she could
happy to report the 13.1 miles was achieved in a time of 3:30:03 with an Avg pace of 15:5 m/m which is a vast improvement on last week’s 10 mile run which only had an Avg pace of 17:10 m/m and she managed to keep up her run 5 walk 5 all the time
Well 7 miles done today bit happy with the pace the whole run took 1:06:14 with an Avg pace of 9:00 m/m pace
went out with the O/H again to day to keep her company on her LSR we did 12 miles today also stop on the way around to have my name printed on my charity running vest for the GNR
