Flat footed v Vik W
Have to get all my runs in for Marathontalk's Jantastic challenge and not sure if I'll be able to run at my bestfriends as I'll be doing my chief bridesmaid bit and I already have a rather large list of things to do!!
How did the 12 x 200 go Spence? They're my favourite intervals to run!!
Just back from 5 miler and I have to say I actually felt good...... the splits of the 3 tempo bits were
I know have a date with a glass of merlot, the sofa and Mr Firth in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy... oh and of course the other half...
Nice doubling up, there Vik!
And good going on them there intervals.
I've got a stuffy head & runny nose and am miserable. not supposed to have a cold, i'm supposed to be fighting fit & running tomorrow night.
awwwww Helen- get better soon!! My other half is suffering with a cold at the moment so I have decamped into the spare room so a) I get a ddcent nights sleep and b) so I don't catch it off him
Managed an easy 5 this morning and there was white stuff falling from the sky luckily it seems to have disappeared for now.... 17 miler on the cards tomorrow so it had better stay away!
Hello all, having a nightmare couple of days at work.
Great running again Vik...17 tomorrow then, whats your target pace for it?
Right this was was defintely one for the head as well as the legs.... I didn't enjoy any of it- it was cold, windy and I came far too close for my liking to 50 deer...
So the plan was 5 easy
12.04 DEER!! They were herding deer from one part of the park to the other with a landrover.... cue 50 or so deer hurtling towards me so I had to duck through at gate into a fenced off part of the park until they'd passed and forgot to stop the garmin! Seriously I don't mind deer when they are a substatial distance from me and NOT moving!! I'm a bit of a wimp really but after the 'Beast of Bushy' making it into the paper I've kept my distance
5 at marathon pace
2 at marathon pace
Baiscally I wanted to stop from about mile 10- popped into Simon's work to use the toilet and grab some water and I really question why the hell I was put myself through this!
But got on with it and only really enjoyed the last two miles as it felt good to know that I stll had something in the tank!!
The 'Beast Of Bushy' making friend with a runner.....
Seriously Vik, you should be extremly happy with those times, the MP splits are really, really good.
I'd agree that 90% of any long run is in the head. Alot of people have the ability but lack the mental strength to carry on.
What was your total time? and the deer excuse is a new one on me..
Got a great couple of days at work now in the Olympic park, except it is going to be freezing.
Had a 2k swim today with my new garmin that counts laps of the pool and number of strokes, so now have data coming out of my ears!!!1
It would appear it was the start of a cold
Vik you are going to storm home !!
Well that was the week from hell...soooo busy at work and then just when it's going ok the weather comes along and spoils everything.
Hope Vik's head is not too sore.
So who ran in the snow then?
Managed 14 on a very early sat morning and i swear it got colder as the run went on.
Cut back week for me, so some swimming and a light turboing for me.
Might venture to my first Parkrun on saturday
Hope you're all enjoying the snow.....
FF- hope you have a better week this week- I'm not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow dealing with angry passengers
The wedding was awesome apart from nearly getting snowed in at the recpetion and having to navigate along country roads in a snow storm- and our taxi drivers idea of driving in the snow was to put his foot down and rev the engine- I thought my other half was going to drag him out the derivers seat and do it himself!!
Off out in a few minutes for my speedwork 9 x 400 meters!!
will post up the rest of the weeks plan when I get back!!
1 mile warm up and cool down- 9 x 400m with 200m recoveries08.20/08.37/08.16/08.26/08.21/08.21/08.28/08.17/08.20
felt really good to get out after splurging over the weekend!!
Been batch cooking all afternoon to try and save some pennies and to get rid of some of the evil ready meals I take to work so the house smells lovely!
so on my plan is
wednesday- 6 easy
thursday- 19 LSR
Saturday or Sunday (work depending) 6 marathon pace
sound ok FF? what's everyone else got on their plans?
what's your training been like sincejan Foxy- I know you've been hitting some big numbers.....
FF is probably the man to speak to!! Oh and I thought you said you'd never do one??
I've run 156m so far this year, so about 30m/week plus a bit of mild x-t, but nothing longer than 10m. I'll wait to here what FF has to say.
And yes I know that Vik........having a bit of a meltdown and wondered if this was a solution!!
