Morning, looks like it's shaping up to be ok weather wise here, hoping to get out earlyish for a buggy run.
23/01/2012 at 08:47

I could do with transporting today, so if you fancy pushing me about in a buggy, that's be fine, FF.  Think of it as resistance training.

Hip aches, and I can feel yesterday in my bum & back. Mainly one side for the hip/back thing. Suspect I ought to do something about that.

This is the thing HL, as i get better at running with her she's getting bigger so i never seem to run any quicker..

Do you do recovery runs?, does anyone think they work....i know after a hard race i feel that swimming helps me recover more then running a few gentle miles does.

23/01/2012 at 16:34
After running long yesterday I did think about a short recovery run today of 3miles, as I hear that's the thing to do.....but I am going swimming for an hour instead.

I've not tried recovery runs. But I did go for a walk at lunchtime, as I could feel myself setting in my seat. It's aerobics tonight, so that'll get me moving a bit. Then I'll roll about on a foam roller (actually a plastic bottle, but it does the same job) and no doubt wince a bit.

I've done a warm up/down then 2 x mile

Evening gang- and happy Chinese New Year!!

Helen- fab race report over on the blog it sounded avery tough race so  well done!!  Hope the hips are feeling better... aerobics after a run like that !

Saffers- well done on the 14 miles!

Spence- I hated those mile reps I did the week before last but I know they do good so am trying to love them!!

FF- week off how lovely!  My running buddy said the same thing when she was running and pushing her little one but when she raced without it she flew!!

I was an early shift today  but woke up feeling better so hit the gym after work and did mile 5 mile fartlek on thetreadmil- legs felt good and I felt like I had a really good run, avg 10.48 pace!!

I tend to swim after a heavy session or hard week and then hit the sauna as they've just put one in our gym and it's heaven after a long run!!

Though tbh Vik a week of with Maddie is harder then a week fighting criminals!

I do miss not having a sauna/steam room...but all the gyms near me charge the earth and have no pools...so i use the council pool but has no other facilities.

Managed 8 mile run and 18 miles on the turbo in just inder an hour and half. Will try for this again tomorrow too, the run was a steady 9.22 m/m with the baby jogger.

Good effort Spence, you running Brighton too...sorry i missed which one your training for?

23/01/2012 at 21:27
No, I'm training for Ashby 20 atm......and then Chester in Oct
23/01/2012 at 21:35

Calling it "aerobics" might be overstating the case, me leaping about on the Wii fit for 45 minutes is more acurate. It thinks I'm down another lb and am only 24 - I could live with that

Spence is doing Ashby for the pizza afterwards  I'm there too, and might gatecrash.

23/01/2012 at 21:58

Swim tonight as recover from my long run. Swam with my middle daugher who is 15 and loving the swimming, as we got in and I tied my hair back she said, "Mum you look really young.".... bless her....as we got out, she laughed at my goggle eyes and said, "Blimey you now look 102 year old, that swimming doesn't do your looks any good Mum!!".......obviously she is now grounded.

23/01/2012 at 22:06

Kids, don't you just love 'em!!

Got to be an incentive Helen !!  I've had a slight change of plan & I might now be PB chasing  see how it goes

23/01/2012 at 22:10

Spence....they're a bit like marmite I think...love em or hate em...

A little worried about this marathon training thing....at the moment I am only running twice a week as putting a lot of focus on the cycling due to a training camp in February and keeping up with the others.  I have been warned that I cannot run a marathon on two runs a week.   So planning getting another run in after the camp in February and hoping that it will get me to the finish line without too much pain.

haha..... *watches what she says*
23/01/2012 at 23:10

waves to plum!

 I'm luck this is the local council gym, just been done up so all nice and shiny but the ASBO clientele hasn't changed much though.. but I manage to avoid most of the lowlife's most of the time and as it's cheap I can't complain!!

Helen- do youhave the wii fit board thingy then...?  Is it good fun and useful as fancied getting one?

Saffers I did 3 runs a week last year and managed a PB and as it's your first one do you just want to finish or get a specific time?

Night all!

Morning, waiting in for the Asda man before we can go out today.
24/01/2012 at 08:41

Morning. That's an exciting morning, FF  Buggy run again today? 

Vik - Yes, we've got theWii and fit board thingy. I wouldn't say that it's as good as going to the gym or to a class, but it's convenient. I'm also more likely to use that than I am to do some fitness work on my own. I did 45 minutes of exercise time (as opposed to waiting for it to do it's thing time). Mixture of step, hulahoop, some balance games (which are great fun). Certainly enough to work up a sweat. It's also got some strength type moves and yoga poses. I tend to use it once a week just to do something different without having to commit to a class or go to the gym. It has its annoyances, like not being able to increase the number of reps, you just have to do the set again. It also works as a set of scales, and can track your weight over time, allowing you to set goals and so on. It can be a bit patronising, and seems to talk tosh at times (gets posture and balance/control muddled, to my way of thinking).

24/01/2012 at 09:46

oooh might go and give my friends a try and see if I get on with it but it does sound like fun!

Hope the ASDA man doesn't keep you waiting too long FF!!

Might not get on later as will be rushing for work later as snatching lunch with other half after meeting the photographer as we've been on opposite shift for the last fortnight.... 

 so will ask this now-  FF how should I tackle my LSR tomorrow- should I throw in some marathon paced bits or just take it nice and slow?
