9 miles cross country in light snowfall and whilst colder than yesterday it's still t-shirt and shorts weather in Surrey!
Kate - you sound like my Mum!
thanks Valis... I might just get a pair!
My training plan for the Reading Half had me down for 14 miles today, I got myself out there but it was just so cold, and the winds were biting. Like most I stuck to the roads and an 45mins in the traffic was making it difficult. I wore some UnderArmour jogging bottoms to protect from the elements so it made it really heavy going on the legs, so I'm afraid I called it a day after 8.5miles
don't be too hard on yourself, it sounds as if we have all plumped for the same distance...
Valis - I am your no 2 in the world of buffalo mitt referrals, I have the world's coldest hands suffering from Raynauds as well and they are super duper.
still lots of white stuff on the roads - which are decidedly untreated and unploughed in the village.
Take it easy out there...
Morning all - day 1 of Ironman training, and first no running day, trying very hard to get my head around only running a few times a week and as it's a 9 month plan a real drop back in intensity and hours per week. Give me a few months and I'll be moaning it's too much! New set of gym exercises to follow so I'm about to plug myself into YouTube before I take them up to the gym. For all of you worried your run wasn't long enough, a) at least you got out there, and b) the cold will have burnt off a few extra calories. Have a good day folks.
snow day here, good job because I wouldn't have gone to work anyway, knee still really bad
so, my school is closed, youngest son's primary is closed, but no news from eldest son's school, can't get through on the phone so have sent him off in the snow.
Morning all, no SOC today and looks like it could be treadmill tonight with another 4 inches of snow on the roads here. Got out for a 16 miler yesterday, pace all over the place because of the conditions on the roads, trails paths but a good work out.
Take care all, though if Chris's forecaster friend is correct this little lot should be over soon, here's hoping.
I didn't even bother setting the alarm to SOC this morning with the snow that was falling when I went to bed last night. Just as well, as there is at least 4 inches of snow fall here overnight.
It was going to be a tricky week anyway to get my miles in, as I've got very early starts on Wednesday doing factory breifings and I'm back in at 10ish-midnight to do the night shift ones too, so that will almost certainly rule out Weds and Thurs. Then at the weekend we are going to Euro Disney until Wednesday, which as fun as that will be and I'm looking forward to it, I can feel myself getting tetchy already at the prospect of hardly any running over the next 10 days.
BIt tetchy already here cos despite snow having melted, trains decided to stop, meaning I couldn't get to work. I work away during the week and was looking forward to some nice snowy runs away from the mayhem of packing and moving house...but looks like a few days working at home instead. Ah well, at least no ice to contend with. Not a running day for me today as I find that even after 2 yrs I can't seem to run 3 days in a row without losing my form...any suggestions gratefully received.
slow down indiegirl... sounds like you are whacking your training too hard and that's why you can't go 3 days on the hop. Or at least mix it up so you do a tempo run, a long slow run, a hill run, a recovery run, etc. If you go out and just run you will probably go too fast. I know this well as that is how I train!!! teehee... My training is normally head out of the village (all routes downhill) so start too fast, then die half way up the first hill, then warm up and settle into a proper pace for the rest of the run, but have to make a real effort to keep the pace down. Heart rate training helps this - if (and only if) you are faithfull to your HR and don't push through to a higher zone.
Morning from a snowy West of Scotland. Snow lightly falling at moment
An active rest this week as we are dog sitting a neighbours black Labrador ! Same age as Geordie so plenty of walks this week !!
Welcome Indie girl
Valis: A good home win on Sun
off to physio soon
Good morning all
No run today due to the conditions of mixed surfaces so paths and roads free of ice and snow others still covered. Hope to get out tomorrow although the 9 mile walk to work and back yesterday , today and probably tomorrow at least gives me a bit of a work out.
Birky, Indeed ,a good win and a whole 2nd half of sweaty palms and stress.
Maths, good luck.
Might run at lunchtime - all a bit too crunchy this morning so stayed in bed and caught up with FB etc!
