Minni v Dubai Dave
What a nightmare day. Left at 7:15am. Just got back. Knackered. Exercise done - zero
decent run tonight - had to do an errand so ran 4 mile WU, then was supposed to be 4m LT then 2 CD
unfortunately i got pacing all wrong and my 4M LT turned in to 2 x 2m at faster than LT (6.51 , 6.55, [2 min recovery] 6.45, 6.51) It wasnt intentional but i have a tendancy to tense up when trying to run faster - after i calmed down in the recovery i was faster and much more comfortable!
lessioned that need to be learned:1) learn to pace FFS2) calm down!!
then to top it off my shorts developed a whole and i lost my keys en route - so i had a 40 minute wait for the lady to get home while in my shorts, t shirt and gloves!!
luckily the local pub took my in - didnt falloff the wagon despite the temptation!!
still, 10 miles in the bag and logged on jantastic!
Well done O4S . 2nd place seemed below your usual standards and that explains it!
Chick, Jantastic does call for advanced 9a skills.
Minni, . At least you made it back and didn't feel the need to go outside someone's front door which some kind soul has done to us.... Hoping we can get the council to clear it up.
I've done runs on very limited breakfast but that's as far as I've gone with limited fueling. There's an increased risk of picking up illnesses as your immunity is depressed, particularly if you're not refuelling afterwards.
Darren, oh no . Can you cross train? If so do please keep joining in with the thread. Kiwi and Spoon's reports are pushing me to push myself in my cross training.
Today I fitted in a quick gym session - rowing machine and strength training. Rowing machine seems fine as well, which is good as it gives me another training option, but bad as there are far too many painful sessions I know that I could try.
2old - I had 2 bowls of porridge and 1 banana, with another banana on the train to Blackheath. Should've felt , but didn't... Worked a treat!
Mr Z - I'm with you re pacing and relaxing. I can't run a given pace without Garmin.
Cooks - Sorry, missed your earlier post. No worries re TWHM if you can't do anything. Thanks for trying.
Recovery 5 for me tonight.
I'm crap at pacing myself too. Yesterdays run was supposed to be 5m threshold. I was on the treamill and could hardly stay on at 7:15 oace, kept having to slow it down as it felt too hard.
Then todays run was 8m with 6@mp :8;45, 8:27,7:42,7:36,7:37,7:36,7:36,7:42. I was trying to do mp @7:45! They it felt far easier than the treadmill running yesterday. WTF??
Anyway - 3 runs done for Janfedupalreadytastic and Day 9 on the wagon
Oomph-that was one hell of a fuelling session-Minni would have exploded after that and think of the cleaning up Becsa's Council would have been left to do.If only the recovery run was as easy as it sounds
Becsa-the rowing machine is mental and physical torture with no escape-good for character and muscle building. Looks like your Council Tax is going to go up
MrZ- I have no trouble controlling my speed as my body doesnt seem to want to do fast, at least thats until taper comes then I have to fight to hold it back. Great session.
Trip to Manchester in the fog today ...hope it clears as MLR planned for tonight.
Mr Z-I will be back home from Manchester to do mine. Looks like very similar schedules-mine's a variation of P&D 18week up to 70 miles pw (with recovery weeks-skiing)though I doubt I will get to 70 often--I'll leave that to Bro. That way of commuting will save a lot on fuel.Im about the same distance from my office but need access to my car during the day.
MrZ-it will be interesting to compare progress. You need a holiday!
AA - day 9 on the wagon? Is this the longest since you were at school? I'm on day 4....
Minni: ouch! Sometimes jumping into bushes is the only way sometimes there aren't any and disaster will strike .But that's no excuse to mess up somebody else's doorstep (poor Becs) 2old & Mr Z: P&D 70 for me as well, although I prefer the 12 week schedule. Which means I still have a bit more time for base training .AA: 9 days on the wagon, very impressive! I'm on day 2 again
12 miles at 4:45AM!!! Jesus, I just don't know how you guys do it.
I did 5 miles at lunchtime in the sunshine. Marvellous
nice one, Min! I had a lie in . Didn't hear the alarm and slept for 9 hours . Obviously needed it ... will brave the rain tonight though. It seems like a quiet day and I hope to leave in an hour or so. The joys of flexitime Everyone in the office is ill . Have stocked up on Echinacea, Vit. C, First Defence and hand sanitiser. Totally paranoid coz the thing that's making the rounds is bronchial. If I catch it, I can kiss my spring mara goodbye.
