Minni v Dubai Dave
Spoons - Keep your chin up and keep going and you'll be back before you know it.
A mixed 14 miler from me today... Felt great at times, lousy at others? I hate the first week of mara training, especially when you don't have a decent base! Averaged 8.17.
Weeble - hope you're OK, Jantastic sounds like just what you need to get something to focus on.
Spoons - at least the answers were expected, just got to get back into old habits. Fingers crossed that will sort things out.
That's a decent 14 miler Barry, happy 20th anniversary!
You'll have strong legs after all these spinning classes Kiwi!
First LSR banked for me this year, I've already run longer than I did training for Berlin 20 miles @ 8:26.
Carrot - 20 already excellent.
Minni - great long run in the hills.
DD - nice brick sesh...
Kiwi - you're loving the spinning. Thats gonna be so good for you.
Chick - I know how you feel but it feels lovely when its donwe for the day, hey!
Welcome back 2old.
Barry - is it just you and me from on here doing Wokingham?
I kicked the fairy out the way this morning and finally got my 5x1200s done on the tready
Nice 1200s AA
nice 20 miler Carrot
Carrot - do you have a target time in mind for London? I think there maybe a few of us looking for similar times - might make a nice train! How long are you down for?
AA - well done for getting on that treadmill.
Well done getting intervals in on a Sunday AA, and for staying on the wagon!
As yet Minni it'll be a PB, any PB! I'm going to see how Brass Monkey goes in two weeks - this is partly why I wanted to get a 20 in this week, as I'll not be doing one next week and will probably do about 16 miles with WU and CD at BM. I'd love to go for under 3:20 but I'm wary of aiming too high and crashing and burning! So current target is sub-3:25. We're probably going to do Amsterdam in October so I can always aim for a quicker time there as it's a good flat course. Booked today for the London weekend, going Friday til Monday so a skinful can be had on the Sunday night
I was thinking of you XC-ing today Bro when I was running along a muddy verge! Sounds like you did really well, great work beating your nemeses. Long run pace feels nice after a tough race the day before.
Just done my 2nd yoga/pilates session of the day. That's 2.5 hours today.
a real cut back week for me - only 30 miles but its exactly what i needed - feel substancially better and ready to take on the world! Got in a decent 30 mile bike this weekend and a swim! Im also really enjoying my core work at the moment !
My foam roller arrived the weekend i can assure everyone that its suitably firm! and blue! very slighty nobbly too! I hurts like a absolutely bastard - but i did feel fantastic afterwards! that genuinely hurt more than any sports massage ive ever had! - particulary the ITB!
slightly related question; does any bodys archillies hurt in the morning? my first few steps first thing are pure agony - but once they wake up im fine! they never hurt at any point and are fine when running! maybe im just getting old!
Spoons - pleased to hear it wasnt awful news - you never know a gradual build up might be exactly what you need for a storming marathon! Im attempting to maintain all that other elements that make you a good all round athlete while building the run milage - so much it carries over well
Minni / Carrot/ Bro - great long runs - there's a real momentum building
Minni - the park run with the juniors sounded ace - a good lagacy you're building!
Bro - good idea - there's bound to be enough beers in chandos to make taking monday off worth while!!
great intervals AA & KFC
Good luck with Jantastic starting tomorrow everyone!! - lets smash this!!
Zuvai - The ITB area is always the most painful.
All set for Jantastic? Remember from tomorrow EVERY run is essential - we don't want any slackers. In exceptional circumstances permission to miss a run may be granted but to be honest I can't think any valid excuse off the top of my head....
Good thinking Brolish!
