Evening. 2.5km swim tonight. The only concern was I thought my arms had fallen off but luckily they were still attached. Feel like I've been beaten up now!

Nice one Spoons! I need to start swimming again...

Happy birthday 2older

Chick nice early run.

The CNBA fairy kept hold of me all day and I didn't do my speed reps. Which scuppers my plan for rest of the weeks training but I just feel so tired. And pissed off that everything is falling apart. Anyway stuck with it and didn't fall off wagon tonight...

Happy birthday not2old.

Gir my 10k reps out the way tonight. That faster pace is starting to feel a bit more comfortable but I'd had enough by the last one. Freezing out there too.

AA - Hang in there, your not alone fighting niggles, and the CNBA fairy on your back.

2old - Don't forget your Moon boots the size of dinner plates, or even better your Yeti boots!. Btw is your B'day today or tomorrow? Have a good one anyway

I felt like that after my netball match on Tue....ached in places that I forgot I had!

Happy birthday 2old Hope you have a good one

what was your paces Minni?

10/01/2013 at 20:55

2old -   Happy Birthday

Minni -  Me and you both for 3:15 then, I'm sure it will take you less attempts than me.

Brol -  Another very good speed session with decent mileage, enjoy your skiing/boarding trip.

AA -  Stick with it, both the training and none partaking.

Weather looks dodgy for the weekend, I must be parkrunning again.

Sarah - between 6:41-4:43 but the last one was 6:48. Not really any quicker than I was running them this time last year but feeling a bit more in control - perhaps! I think this is quite a good session to do leading up to a HM because the pace is faster than HMP.

Sarah/Carrot - did you get your BM numbers today? Thank goodness we don't have to collect them on the morning this year. That's always been a bit of a nightmare.

Happy Birthday 2Old .

AA, oh no.  Would the cooker have a manufacturer's warranty at all?

Barry - Poacher is considering trying to get sub 3:15 dressed as Carmen Miranda and has offered to pace me. Perhaps he could drive the train?

AA - well done for not falling off the wagon again. I know it's tough but it will be worth it.

10/01/2013 at 21:19

Happy Birthday 2old. Is that tomorrow?

10/01/2013 at 21:19

Minni -  I'll have to catch up with you first, as I'm with the  masses, but at least you'll be easy to spot.

You'll be at the front if the masses though and I'll be behind all those celebs! I'm not one for running races with people normally but had a great experience of running London with AA when we both got PBs.
10/01/2013 at 21:56

Happy Birthday Never2old - you must be catching up with me

Minni - 10k reps???????

1500m reps for me tonight in the cold and heavy rain - if it hadn't been club night I would have stayed in I fear.  Cycling commute has felt hard after a few weeks off after Christmas.

Jantastic server seems to be down................................

I got my number through for BM aswell today....completely forgot about it!

Happy Birthday 2old!

Hope your luck changes AA, keep smiling! Your DIY plan has worked well so far, you seem to know what works for you.

Strong running so early this morning Chick, I was probably still knocking out ZZZZs by the time you were back home, showered, breakfasted and dressed for work!

Bro - the spikes felt good but I only did a mile!  You can tell the difference with no cushioning, I did some on the soft track and some on the grass.  Grass felt lovely.  Will be aiming for the dizzy heights of a 2 mile run in them on grass on Sunday.  Hope your 20M tomorrow night goes well, then have a lovely holiday  It's probablt time for a slightly easier (50 mile) week after the training you've been doing.

Minni the only reason sub-40 won't happen is if you carry on avoiding those 10Ks! Of course you can do it.  You are a fast runner!  No BM number for me yet.  That year when everyone was packed into that little space waiting for numbers was a nightmare!

Re: the mental barriers debate - I'm guilty of this time and time again!  It took two years of running to get my 10K from 50:28 (my first race ever) to sub-50 - it's only 30 seconds! Then I couldn't get my head around running sub-8 minute miles for a half marathon, I mean, that was FAST!! Then it was the elusive 3:30 marathon barrier.... Now it's those pesky sub-7 minute miles that I've yet to crack for a 10K, even though I've run a HM in 1:32, and I can't possibly run a fast 5K  IT'S ALL IN THE MIND!!! 

That said, I'm never going to achieve my pie in the sky goals

Thanks for the birthday wishes ,hic, falling off the wagon has its benefits. I can see lots of numbers above which I think will make more sense to me tomorrow.
11/01/2013 at 06:16
Carrot - you can and you will achieve.

2old - hope you had a good night.

Becs- warranty ran out on Saturday. Oven broke on Sunday!

I think I'm gonna head out after dogs are walked and do 5 miles early as gotta sort out loads today. It's not the 800 reps but least its a run logged and leaves my legsok for long one tomorrow. Positive positive.

Day 11.... Can I do much more??
