All Aiming for 3.45 - 3.59
NfS - I haven't seen a physio or ortho since I started Chi running........
Afternoon, very busy at work with new products, having to be very disciplined about leaving to get runs in at the moment.
I rested last night, and I'm planning a tempo run tonight and putting my long run off till Sunday. Mrs P is doing 8 in prep for Liverpool half so I might set off with her and carry on when she turns for home, but she seems to prefer the company of her ipod to mine for some strange reason.
No more snow here yet, but it is on the way apparently.
Well the snow cam and went so i missed friday's run, and did a short run yesterday before today's 16. It was windy here, quite hard work, but I managed it slowly.
I'm beginnig to wonder if I've peaked age wise, I really don't remember it being this hard to maintain long run pace.
5.5m on the hills in the snow/slush on Saturday and 19.7m in 2.44 on the roads yesterday, felt really strong and relaxed and could have carried on. Slight AT-type niggle but nothing terminal hopefully, think it might be just a reaction to getting used to roads again after so long on mostly trails.
It was really bright here on Saturday, I did a very short run in the morning then did 16 on Sunday; wasn't as good as last week but the weekend was a bit disrupted really.
There is a 5 mile race near here on Sunday (Alsager Claire?) so I may do that I feel like I need a cutback week.
I really think you're both being a bit conservative over London, after all the off road stuff I bet you both smash it.
Hi Mr P - are you running the Alsager event Sunday? I'm running one of my favourite events, Charnwood Hills, it's 14 miles off road.
Feeling really off colour this week though, think it's the training!
Yes I am hopefully, if not I'll do a long run. I will need to do a few slow miles first if I do the 5 though.
Beautiful day here, off for some pasta now
If you have a bad run, you'll know your last good one was down to the pork pie and not pasta, giveng you licence to eat more of them. That would be a result
Only managed treadmill activity since Sunday, but ticking over OK.
not run this year yet, work, snow, illness and a back ache for sometime. Hoping to get out on Friday, just remind me, is it one foot in front of the other and lean forward.
Good to hear you are all well, with nothing planned, there's not much to run for at the minute.
I'll be around here sometimes.
Just off out for a burrito with the team............according to Garmin Connect I've burned 17,000 cals this month (and run 136 miles). Problem is I've eaten/drunk 500,000
I am going to the chippy, without the team!
I can't stop eating at the moment, blame it on my Ultra training!
Just entered Abingdon Marathon
I had fish & chips then got back to work and found a tuna fish sandwich Mrs P had made for me that I'd forgotten so I had to eat that. Of course I can't mention the chips so I've had to eat an evening meal too. I'll have to dilute it all with beer now.
Good run this morning, felt pretty strong and pace was identical to last week (I upped the distance a little bit). Can really feel the chi focuses kicking in at times. Last couple of weeks have been two of the strongest training runs I've done for a while.
Got to get to work on replacing the 3,000 calories now. Happy days Oh, and off for 2 hours cricket in......
