Ant - Are you doing P & D up to 55 mpw as i've got 5 to do today? My fragile fitness levels cannot cope with anything much over this mileage!
2old - I'm thinking of having 3 bowls of porridge pre-VLM this year.
Minni- 4.45? Crazy lady!!!!
Oompa-In that case I wont be running VLM behind you!
So many P&D people here , maybe theyll sponsor us?
I'm not very good at early mornings....
Running at night is kinda fun though
Oompa - no P&D for me, I have devised my own Frankenplan. However at the moment I am base building after a achilles/ankle injury before Xmas. Things looking ok though
Weeble/2old- I think Abingdon opens in the first week of February, its still my number one choice unless I can get talked into doing one further afield. The two new marathons in York and Northumberland look good also, oh decisions, decisions.
Zuvai- Good run yesterday for you, very nice pace.
Becs- yuk ref your door step!
AA- Its funny how one day your body doesn't let you do the run prescribed and then the next day its better.(more to follow on this in a mo)
Minni- I hope your enjoying your night off or are you already in bed? Total respect to you for getting out for a run at 4:45am.
Ant- what does your Frankenplan look like?
20ld- A nice MLR there.
I decided not to join the speed session with my club mates tonight as last week I couldn't control my pace and did my fastest pace to date. So I set off to do 6x 1mile @10k pace at lunch time, I had to talk myself into getting out there as the CNBA fairy arrived. The 3mile warm up was fine, then my legs went on strike! I just couldn't get them going, I'm putting it down to "one of those days" My mileage has been quite low for the last month and the last speed session was last Wednesday so not sure what happened. I ended up only doing 4x1mile reps at just under MP. Total miles with wu and cd were 8:83miles so I wont grumble too much. Pace on 1 mile reps were: 7:18, 7:24, 7:16, 7:22 with 3 min recovery in between. 3rd run for Jantastic with a double recovery run planned tomorrow!
.....he's on the case!
Swam tonight. 110 lengths But it was only a 15m pool
i have a rip n my speedos so no more swimming until I've had a delivery from Wiggle
The more pressing question is Minni, did you finish your 1K reps after you'd had a clear out?
Hope your day has been better today Spoons. How's the shins? And the post-yoga/pilates DOMS? Good call not swimming again until you have a pair of hole-free budgie smugglers.
Have you sewed the hole up Zuvai? Can't forget the gloves on a cold night. Good paces for your LT miles, even before you calmed down!
Hope you can get the council to clear up the mess Becs, some people really are disgusting
Your training sounds like it's got plenty of speedy stuff in AA, what plan are you following?
Keep those germs at bay Chick, I doubt anything can get through your defence tactics
6 x 1M @ 10K pace does sound pretty grim for a lunchtime run Gazelle, sometimes the legs just don't want to cooperate! Still a good session banked.
I wasn't up quite as early as Minni this morning (or probably Bro and Chick) but did my recovery run at 6am this morning after the club session last night. As part of my cooldown last night on the soaked all weather pitch I put my XC spikes on to have a go of running in them. Planning on a couple of miles of grass in them at the weekend also....
I don't know about the next Harrier League, I might have a go as practice for the Nationals! Are you running? I don't want to sign up for too many short races as it means skipping a speed session or other quality stuff.
