Am I being stupid.
Well done Angela on the P.B
Not so good about the ride though
Well I'm up early this morning partly from the noisey neighbours and part pooch needing toilet
But all good news for me as last night was our running clubs championship dinner, bear in mind I've been part of the club now for coming up to 7 months.......I got an award for coming 3rd in XC this season well happy.
Well done Angela on the PB less than a week after running a marathon - impressive stuff! Also, that's a solid ride. Nice going. You deserve to be a little sore!
Jason - congrats on the award. That's excellent news. Life isn't all about marathons.
Eldest daughter is 17 today! Had her first driving lesson. God, I feel old! Just ran a progressive 6 hilly miles at 7:21 average. Legs feel incredible. Was meant to be recovery run but lovely warm day on the downs and I felt so good I couldn't resist. Out to dinner this afternoon but hoping to get back early enough to get out for an hour on the bike.
Thanks guys I didn't put in the caveat that it was a parkrun pb- was 18s slower than my 5k pb but I reckon when I'm fully recovered that is easily smashed even though the park is a bit hilly
happy birthday mini ds2
its a lovely day to be out on the bike- I ha planned a 5 mile recovery run today, but rather tempting to ride instead, though something tells me saddle sore will put an end to that idea, that and I need to clean the gears and chain from yesterday...
That's rather speedy for one week post-marathon, DS2! Just be careful not to get carried away on every run. That's happened to me in the past - I've flown for a few weeks post-marathon then get to the point where I just can't sustain the speed. You need to keep a few slower runs in there too - but I understand the need to reaffirm what you can do on your oldest child's 17th birthday!
Well done on the Parkrun PB Angela, excellent going. A lovely day to be outside yesterday. I did 10 undulating miles at 8:33 average pace and really enjoyed it. Better still, my legs didn't even feel as though they'd been for a run afterwards. It was nice to slow down and take in my surroundings for a change too. I've run yesterday's route a few times at speed and didn't realise until yesterday that it goes past a pig farm - all the pigs were out rolling in the mud!
Well done on your award, Jason, you must have been chuffed. Loving the photo - I think there might be a caption competition in there somewhere ...!
Nice recovery Minks! I think I've overdone it on Saturday! When I went for my run on Sunday it was like running thru treacle, and my heart rate was very high for such a slow pace for me. I felt a bit fevery when I went to bed last night and now have a sore throat and slightly swollen glands, so I think that explains it. I'll have another easy week before my races at the weekend. Hopefully I'll be all better then!
Minks - 10 undulating miles is good only a week after a marathon!
I was a bit more sensible this morning and did 5 miles nice and easy at 8:13mm average. It actually felt like a jog.
