Minni v Dubai Dave
Sorry to here about your aches this morning simon , have you a local pool to go to, swimming may ease things for you?
Good run this morning Minni, i'd take it too!
I had company this morning, which was nice. Did 1.5 first then met a running chum for 13.5 then the last mile on my own. Didn't see anything dead this morning but did see a beautiful fox running though the fields, a heron, and a big ball of black and white fluff which was a collie pup and was determined it was coming with us!
Sarah - I do the facebook trick on my pc to save opening up photoshop, which always seems to take forever. Can you do that from your phone too? I'll have to investigate.
Sarah - we were talking about paces of long runs the other day. These were my paces today:
1) - 1m - 9:072) - 1m - 9:023) - 1m - 8:584) - 1m - 9:345) - 1m - 9:036) - 1m - 8:597) - 1m - 8:408) - 1m - 8:459) - 1m - 8:5210) - 1m - 8:30 11) - 1m - 8:4812) - 1m - 8:2413) - 1m - 8:4514) - 1m - 8:2215) - 1m - 8:0816) - 1m - 8:07
Later on I'll start to add some MP miles into the long runs and also do some progressive ones - starting with easy miles and gradually speeding up so finishing at MP.
On Tueday night past I did a quality session that looked like this:
1m - 8:281m - 8:59 Inc Hill1m - 9:05cal Inc Hill1m - 7:45 STRIDES (about 0.5m)2m - 7:06/m 90 secs recovery 1m - 6:58/m90 secs recovery 0.75m - 6:55/m90 secs recovery 0.5m - 6:35/m90 secs recovery 0.25m - 6:15/m90 secs recovery 1m c/d added
Sounds like you had a lovely run seeing all that wildlife. Its always nice to run with someone else aswell, the miles just seem to disappear!
I havent been able to upload anything from my phone yet as I dont get all the little icons (smiley faces, bold letters, underlining etc) on my phone.
Thankyou ever so much for the paces above. Im going to write them down and attempt something similar. Im going to do a slow longish run today and then hopefully something similar to your Tuesday night session later in the week. It looks really good, I like challenging runs like that. I will let you know how I get on although im not sure when im going to fit it in yet, have a clinical meeting after work on tuesday until 21:30 and then im working late on wednesday until 21:00 (from 8:00)....hoping that netball training tomorrow gets cancelled (as we dont have a game until jan now), so I can fit another run in!
Chick: I'm guessing that you have gone metric on us and are talking about 80K, if i'm wrong thats serious mileage.
Simon: Bet you don't do that again
Minni: Your FB pictures make in look far too cold to run
So after a day of lyng around hungover and sick, dragged myself to work today not feeling great but laced up the trainers at lunch for 9 miles at 7-20's, it didn't feel great but it didn't feel desperate either. I feel much better now
Fridays splits show me that I went through half way in 45-12 and I had already had two walk breaks by then, the next 3 K up to 13K were desperate with a 7 min/K in there and then I settled down to run a steady MP to the end. I wasn't able to speak for most of yesterday so will accept I wasn't well and should have probably not raced.
Chick - 80 miles or Xmas cookies? Hmm... Cookies every time.
Did my 12 in 1.39.17 this morning and it was lovely out there, cold but not too bad. Ran a local trail that is fairly flat out & back. Interestingly, had no K-tape on the knees and no calf guards and didn't get "funny feet"? Physios... what do they know??
1) 8.20 (2) 8.01 (3) 8.24 (4) 8.17 (5) 8.15 (6) 8.17 (7) 8.16 (8) 8.23 (9) 8.16 (10) 8.14 (11) 8.14 (12) 8.21
Are these too fast for a slow run?
Simon - Does the F*rman schedule include lampposts?
Don't accidents normally come in 3's, Zuvai banged his head, Simon had a tumble, who's next or does Spoons and Daren banging heads count.
Sarah listen to Minni, I always do, she talks sense, so much so she should be a mentor. Nice 12 miler if a little quick.
Spoons - did you make it out?
DD good effort on the HM all things considered.
Chick - Monster mileage.
Minni - Nice long one, you ready for Homeland tonight , only 3 left.
OOmpa - Good pace on your run, sometimes it is hard to run slow, I find it hard running slower than 8:20's even if I try, unless it's the last three of a marathon, what's your mara target?
Busy weekend, no running, flying trip to Blackpool yesterday and in work today, back on it tomorrow, 5 days of slow running, promise.
Well I made it out for a run but it wasn't pleasant. 10 miles in the wind along the coastal path getting battered by waves as the tide was right in. Everything ached from the start and only got worse.
Simon - hope you're OK - sounds painful
Sarah - are you on an iPhone?

a great read - slightly gutted she's announced her retirement this week - her achievements have been criminally under sold by the media has she inspired you enough to join the darkside??

Mr Z- totally agree about her being under sold by the media. What an amazing woman, I want to be her! Lol, yes, it made me think about possibly joinig the darkside one day
Spoons- well done on getting the run in when hangover, believe me I know the feeling.
5m easy done @ 8:20. I think some red would be in order now.
