Minni v Dubai Dave
Haha, I just stumbled across a very funny tapir video... ahem.
Just back from 3 days coaching at a rowing training camp - dawn til dusk on the river out with various VIIIs, IVs and sculls, then land sessions in the evening - I even gave a core class - oh the irony... As well as lots of slow biking alongside the boats (plenty of miles, but not fast enough to really count as any kind of training) I got my 6M tempo run in.
Just done my second speedwork for beginners session - 800m/1600m/800m with 400m recoveries. 3.08; 6.36 (3.21+3.15); 3.07. Both 800s faster than my fastest was last week so happy with that, and really enjoyed the session. I've now got enough info to work out target paces so I'll be doing the f*rman weekly marathon speed sessions from now on.
Thats me on 100% for jantastic - pretty easy with just 3 runs though. Will actually be doing 4 this week as did last weeks long run on Monday - MT need never know...
Stretching now and climbing tonight
5 mile recovery run. I think I am suffering from blackouts - I appear to have signed up to a weekly track interval session, a series of 5k runs and a series of 10k runs [the latter two are once a month each]
Perhaps I had better come off the booze as well................
well done, kfc Eeek, O4S - 5 and 10ks!!! Rather you and me ... are those run on the track too or is it just the intverals?I had to google tapir pre .... too blimey!!
2oldnever wrote (see)
Good to see you can run in single figures occasionally
... hardly worth the aggro of getting changed and showered Happy birthday, btw. I forgot to post that earlier
2old/minni - cheers yeah makes sense, I was doing something similar but using distance 800/1000 and building it up like that
O4S - 5Ks and 10Ks. Nice one!
I am not going near a tapir search
I thought that tapir was a different way of spelling taper but for faster runners. Imagine my surprise !
DD - Another good run from you, enjoy your break.
kfc - nice speedy running and the first 100% for the week well done.
Not a great end of the week for me, 800 redundancies announced to us at work last night in addition to 300 temps being let go. Think my job will be safe but will hit a lot of friends hard.
Barry - bloody hell 800 redundancies. That sucks. I'm sure you went through the same thing a year or so ago? Its hard if you're one of the ones safe because you have to watch others go through it, although harder if you're one of the ones hit. Not nice. Keep with it.
Ant/2old - do you prefer distance or time? I quite like time if something is going to be tough...l think.
I can feel yesterday's interval session in my legs, not sore just tired. I'm pleased about this because it shows I worked hard... I think.
Blimey kfc - you're kinda speedy today!
O4S - I wish I had a track close by. My second claim club use one sometimes and I think I'd like to go and try it out. 80m round trip though...
I need to lose half a stone. Before next weekend.
Barry - shit that's a horrible situation to be in.
I need to lose a stone. Before tomorrow night when I'm getting dressed up and going out on the lash
Don't worry AA - you were awesome. Just drink once a week. I' m going on the wagon on Monday...
Brolish- your storming at the mo, 50miles whilst on a ski oops snow boarding holiday!!! 50miles is the most some of us would do on our highest mileage week. We are in a catered chalet so no treadmill for me, I am planning on doing a mile run a day and thats it I am on holiday after all.
Redwood- Oh no ref your ski trip
2old- Happy belated birthday.
Minni- nice 10k reps for you, What is your 10k pb? Also what 10k interval reps do you recommend? I'm happy to try them out to see if it works for us Ladies 2old has just answered this one I think.
DD- Hope you have a great holiday, it would be funny if we bumped into each other. You look like you will be on for a great time in the Dubai marathon.
KFC- Great speed session and faster than last time which is great.
O4S- You will be bringing home all the bling after the speed sessions.
AA-You deserve the red wine after what you had had to cope with this week.
6 runs logged for me this week. I hope I can get 6 runs in next week for Janrunningaroundthechaletwithmygarminwatchonfor1miletastic. Keep safe peeps and I'll be back a week on Monday to log my runs.
AA-lol, I have been rivalled by a friend from my running club who wants to see evidence of my runs!,
