A great prize & challenge
Congratulations re job Clive, now with that worry out of the way you can get back to the serious job of running!!
malcs- did you get any other runs in while you're in s wales? it was glorious today and still light when I got home from work, It was SO nice getting out this eve, beautiful sunset on the beach
Hi DS2, hills are becoming my new friend, but they mash my legs too!
Clive - congratulations on the new job, hope it all works out for you. I'm sure your running will be back on track very quickly.
Jen - I did a nice recovery run yesterday with Mrs Malcs, down the cycle path then past the leisure centre and back past the hospital to Felinfoel. Hoping to head East on the cycle path today through the wetlands centre and loop back round for my midweek long run around 11 ish. As you say the weather has been superb - cool but nice and bright. Are you still having to do mostly evening runs?
Sarah - it was Ady's compression shirt I was offering to eat. Consuming socks would be the act of a crazy man. What do you take me for?
I sympathise completely with your house cleaning nightmare. We have been lucky enough to get an offer early but can't accept it fully until they sell. Getting a bit worried that the viewings seem to have dried up though.
DS2 - cheers! I was a bit concerned about building up too quickly. I think I was careful enough going from 10-18 in 2mile per week steps. I certainly feel no ill effects. I'm thinking that the midweek long run has played its part well in helping me advance. I'm wondering whether to do 18-20 again this weekend or drop it a bit to 15 or 16 ahead of Spitfire the week after. I guess if I feel fine it may ok. I'm not racing Spitfire so it's not like I need to be totally fresh.
I'm playing it very safe regarding 'mashing' the legs. Last time I did that I inadvertently mashed my medials as well
Hope you are all good. Well done on pbs Jen, Malcs and Sarah!
Sarah, I've entered the Graves 10k at weekend, but on call Saturday so if awful night will skip racing and do recovery run ( do you like the excuses for being slow already ?)
A friend at work is interested in TR, is going to get back to me in the next few days...
May not have been running at all since Sunday, But I did swim in the north sea yesterday!
Well done on the Job Clive thats great to hear!!
BRRRR! Tigger, I feel cold thinking of it!
I've done a couple of speed sessions this week, but I'm finding it very frustrating! retired to the comfort of the gym and did some heavy deadlifts this eve!
Malcs, yes, I do most of my runs in the eve after work, but I occasionally take a wed afternoon off and drive somewhere different to run ( and then have coffee n cake!) as a treat.
When is your next race Sarah?
Clive - I like your thinking. I treated a 10k last year as a training run, and got a PB! lol
Tigger - I was about to call you mental but then I remembered who I was talking to
Jen - hmm, coffee n cake after the parkrun, coffee n cake on a Wednesday...do the gym sell coffee and cake too? I'm spotting a pattern
Sarah - forgot to say, we didn't get the asking price (does anyone?) but we budgeted for being knocked down and are happy with the offer we got. Nothing yet to move into - too scared to find somewhere until we're in a proeceedable position.
Malcs- you know you really want to move down here
Sarah - this week I did 3xmile intervals as fast as I could, tried to hit 8min mile but struggled. That min faster really takes me out of my comfort zone. Help anyone??
Clive that was a great result, particularly if you started slow! I'd be happy with that time starting fast!
Sarah - what was your race (sorry, can't keep up with what everone is doing)?
I did my first 20 - into London, round Cutty Sark and back again. Last 2 miles I started to feel a bit sore but I had upped it to MP for the last 5 so probably not surprising. Had to get up at 5am to do it though so I could go to my son's rugby match. I may well conk out during this post so apologies in advance!
I passed the VLM start area on Blackheath common Sarah. You'll be glad to know they haven't started queueing for the loos yet
