Sleepy - congrats on posting the 2000'th message on this little forum
Yay me - just had a celebratory doughnut
Sore throat was a bit sore outside this morning - maybe my cold's not quite gone then! But then, there is ice on the puddles so cold air's not gonna be the best test LOL
I'm sure I'll live - back to bike riding tomorrow - hope the road's less icy! Looks like it's due to warm up as the week goes on - who's racing next weekend then?
Me & oscarr - Datchet xc
I'm combatting withdrawal symptoms by booking an 18 mile organised training run next March, because it fits in nicely with my marathon mileage plan (sandwiched between 22m and 20m runs ).
I liked the Numbus shoes and they fitted very well. Did you know ASICS do an extra wide fitting (4E) - neither did I? For years I have struggled to find the right fitting shoe as they were either a bit too long or right length but too tight on the width. I tried the Excel 33's too Oscsr and like them. I tend to just race in them.
Which reminds me, must go out and buy some new shoes for marathon training!
Ten get up to Grindleford Gallop March 9th a nice training run a Saturday race too so time to chill on Sunday..... WELCOME Matt.
Ten - tell more - is it a club one or one some of us can join in? Where, when, spill, spill. How's the bendy thing this morning?
Hey KR - ooooh getting more nimbiiiiiiii? Which marathon you going for next?
mcs - I can see you have a soft spot for that one LOL. Do they only run it once a year? Surely you're not gonna make me do a spring marathon so I can fit it in one year are you
Thanks for putting that one on my radar mcs. Any idea when it normally fills up?
SB - It's one of the training runs organised for next year's Milton Keynes marathon. Approximately 18 miles on 17th March. It's open to anyone, hence I've entered even though I won't be running the MK marathon next year.
The knee is fine. It's not 100% as I can hear a slight "crackilng" sound in the morning, but it is much better than it was prior to the HM race. I ran three easy miles on the treadmill yesterday, so it's holding up well.
Having taken part in the cold wet race on the weekend, I'm the only one in my family that doesn't have a cold at the moment. That'll teach 'em for lying in bed on Sunday . Still, with my luck, it's only a matter of time before I catch it. Time for some zinc and extra vitamins.
Going for Manchester in April SB.
Is there a list on here (I love lists) of who doing what and when? If not I'll start one...
28.04.13 Manchester Marathon - Knight Rider
Lists are always good...
18.05.13 Cape Wrath mara - SB and oscarr
22/23.06.13 The Wall - SB and oscarr
Think there are a few lining up for Brighton - who entered in the end??
Personally I'm sticking to one mara a year (not counting the wall as won't be running the whole way). No I am - am still resisting temptation!
09.03.12 Grindleford Gallop - MCS and Oscarr
23.03.12 Coniston 14 mcs, oscarr and Reiki and maybe Choisty to win it????
We'll be at Consiton too mcs - how could I forget that LOLOL
More strength work and an easy run today then massage tomorrow to ease the ensuing DOMS ready for the weekend.
Are you ever coming back FH?
Hey Reiki - hope you're giving as good as you get! You need to be able to keep yourself safe out there!
MEP (most efficient pace) is roughly about MP, MAP (mostly aerobic pace is just slightly slower - I spose ultra-ish pace as I have to walk sometimes to keep my pulse down) and SAP (speedy anaerobic pace) is 10k ish for me. It's just another system for making sure you develop all round fitness really but with the emphasis on longer races.
Yes please - what ya got planned?
Astonishing? Am intrigued - is that good or bad?
Still in one piece after my TRX session - did more upper body stuff today (cos I warned him I have a run on Sunday so I'd like to be able to walk LOL). I was totally rubbish at suspended push ups but that's the whole point I guess - my yoga is certainly benefiting - am getting loads better at that!
SB thanks for explaining - must say that if we are in normal speak Marathon Pace would not be my MEP, I'm sure I'm loads more foreverish considerably slower, 60 or 90 secs slower that is.
Astonishing massage is delivered by this guy I just discovered and who is two streets from my HOUSE! He gets toally stuck in to glutes every time, and targets problems rather than doing a once over like most.
So far I'm finding this very effective. He doesn't hold back, but I can trust that it's not actual damage he's doing, more the confidence that comes with experience.
My sister just told me I'm having tui na tomorrow afternoon too, can't wait.
