A great prize & challenge
Thanks Sarah........it was weird seeing it, as it was completely different to how I remembered it. Maybe it was a bit too honest though!
Just popping in to say a quick HI before the day is out......
Agreed Shady_Ady on the video, my hubbi & I were just watching it and you really made us laugh . I also laughed and fully agree with SLB's comment earlier today...
"- Andrew - will be interesting to do a poll of how many of us have lost our jobs by the end of this process!"
Work again for me tomorrow morning xox
Hey Clive - I use a Garmin. Love mine! Have a 305. Tells me when I'm going too slow which is a good thing!
Andrew - Eek - don't say that! I'm a valuable asset apparently. (Shhh! Don't tell them I'm here!)
Malcs.......and there was me thinking I was using my Garmin cunningly and no one knew! Obviously I'm not as clever as I thought
All this talk of pre-marathon food, I have to say I still like the old favourites of jelly babies and jaffa cakes. I eat so many of them before my marathons that I can't look at them again for weeks after!
Morning early risers... Malcs England are closing in!! Jen enjoy your run in Wales; it sounds stunning! & Shady_Ady if you're going for a run later?
Half day of work for me this morning, running club Christmas Dinner & Party tonight, Turkey Run dressed as a Spiced Girl or Super Girl tomorrow morning, my husband's birthday on Monday, mine on Tuesday, voting closes Wednesday!! So much exciting stuff going on!!!
Morning everyone, yes Malc I was wondering if Ady was cycling?
It is a sunny moring here with less wind and dry! I am on a rest day to day and on Christmas tree duty with the kids
Yes, Jenf hope you have a good run like to know where abouts?
CaroT - very busy but fun few days - mmmm running club chrismmas party will you be partying hard? or taking steady with sparkling mineral water - I have my works do on Friday 14 Dec could go either way!
RRR - just seen the Bootcamp interview very good much better than mine!
Clive - have a look at "Heart Monitor Training for the Compleat Idiot" by John L Parker Jr. It is the book that got me into running in the first place. I always gave up before reading that book - because I didn't realise I was training too hard too often. Result = burnout!
The HRM is invaluable when it comes to running recovery runs. You can see at a glance whether the pace you think is easy is genuinely easy.
I don't go in for heart rate zones as such, as advised by John LPJ. Easy runs below "recovery threshold", and hard runs above "threshold floor". Keeping records of heart rates on some benchmark runs is a great motivator for me too. I can see I'm getting fitter, even if I don't always feel like it.
Don't know why I'm telling you this - you're a squillion times faster than me
