Sleepy - i never stop learning; just googled ROFL and oreo
Tempo interval session done this afternoon. 10 miles inc 6x1 mile reps @ HMP. First 3 avge 7:56, second 3 avge 7:51 with last one the quickest. HR at end of last rep 83%.
I know how Sleepy feels cos i could not have done another one. This is last week of 3 hard weeks - looking forward to the cutback week next week which will be a lot less than the schedule requires to allow me re-energise the batteries.
Mike, thanks for that it made my day great report
I will go for 3:59:26 for RR
I am now looking forward to London...last hard session was yesterday 12 x 200m followed by 1M marathon pace whihc was up hill against the wind in 5:55, let's hope it feels like come saturday.
a meesage to the bombers...You can't run, we will catch you
oooh oooh Choisty are you running too - so sorry - don't know how I missed that - quick quick - gold, silver, bronze goals please - you know how we love a sweep opportunity - shame we don't have a little smiley begging on his knees
The guesses on reiki thus far:
Choisty: I have no idea what your gonna run... Bet it's quicker than my biking pace home this evening...
Attempted 3X800 this evening. We'll better than the last attempt. Managed 2.5 this time @ 3:30, 3:33 and 1:36 before bailing. I'm having issues with maintaing my motivation at the end... The will to push through is a bit weak at the moment. Will come back though; guy at work managed to talk me into re-joining a running club that his dad is the race director for, so 1.5 mile handicaped timetrial on Tuesday (winner gets a bottle of wine). If that isn't motivation I don't know what is.
BoD, head-up you just need a focus, pick 5km and a time as a start
A few pointers for guessing time:
My Marathon history
1997 - London - 6:44
2004 - Abingdon - 3:34
2005 - Cardiff - 3:21
2006 - Abingdon - 2:54
2007 - London - 3:11
2012 - Paris - 2:43(:59)
I've never run well in London, I hate running when it is too hot, I don't like running into the wind. I am in good shape, better than last year, so far I have run 1,200 miles for the year. I ran 2:02:06 at Bramley 20M in Feb and a PB over 10km at Eastleigh in 34:21 in March. I have a slight cold, but no injuries and am dillusional as I have stopped caffine in the last 3 days my target window is 2:38 - 2:43, and using Mikes thoughts
Silver Shiny new PB
Bronze Sub 2:45
...so what do you think?
2:34:56 - because it scores an OCD bonus
I've just run four miles recovery on the treadie. I kept below my new conservative recovery heart rate. Feeling really good with no aches or pains.
I'll go for 2:38:30.... I expect you to beat that by 14 seconds 'cos I never win sweapstakes
Wanna keep PBing the local Parkrun. Know the course now, and John Lewis have got some trail shoes on offer which might help up muddy hills.
Right it's chilli and rice time!
Okey cokey then - morning all!!
guesses coming in on speedy-man:
Ten - 2:34:56
Bo - 2:38:30
sleepy - 2:42:42
And round up on kick ass reiki:
Nice work ten - good recovery skills! Talking of which I must stop dithering and go do my MP session!
Awesome goal Bo - I keep threatening a parkrun year myself - where's your PB at just now and where you aiming?
Sleepy: PB is last weeks run (1st very 5k actually run) @ 28:01... Did the timetrial on the 26.2 training @ 22ish.
BoD, I'll give you a new target 27:22 for 5km...it's my 8yo daughters PB from last month
Choisty: Your on. Next one I'm going to is next saturday.
Tell you what, don't do your back. Plays hell with everything.
Choisty sweep - i will go for 2:43:09
Choisty 2.39.39 go speedy have a great day.
RR 3.59.57 go girl.....
Come on Bo too you can do a speedy 5K........and beat an 8 year old!!
Wowsers that 0.5mph makes a huge difference on my MP - did it though, just - based on my updated target paces! Max HR - 184!!! And flippin well felt it too LOL Think I must still have my 6 x 1s in my legs. Hopefully it'll feel a bit easier next week.. A girl can dream
mcs - 2.39.39
oscarr - 2:43:09
any more for any more??? I have my jaffa cakes ready...
Bo - hey come on - 8yos are blimmin fast! 5ks are always a huge shock to me after a bit of a break - you'll be back near your best before you know it. I'm wanting a sub 23 at some point. Which parkrun did you do? Recommend it if we're ever down your way?
Oh dear, was waiting for the 8y/o comments. Oh well, only been back (get it???) in action for a couple of weeks...
The parkrun is in Huntingdon, it's a really nice course and the park is great. Finishes in front of a cafe, so bacon rolls are all in order.
Sleepy - I've never had Oreo so will do a taste test and see which one makes me smile the most and feel best about myself because that one will be you! x
Reiki - 3:58.43 (But please just enjoy it - you run for the Bostonians and the marathon spirit too)
Choisty - 2:40.38 (because London is soo busy)
So excited for you guys and feelining less green with envy now that I have a marathon next spring.
Swam 2.5 k last night so feeling quite pleased with myself and track tomorrow. I have decided that if I can loose 5 lbs I am allowed to buy a road bike so that is my target!
