ah nevermind - thats Southport not Stockport

That was by far the worst website i've ever seen!

Nice reps there 2old!

Talked myself into a 3 mile recovery run this afternoon squeezed in between clients to see if it helped my tired calfs and for the sake of janwhythehelldidiput5runstastic as I am on a course all day tomorrow then off to see Reading get beat by Chelsea! But they are still stiff

Updated the spreadsheet.  Ran into work this morning and now faced with running back

Can anyone explain how I appear to have booked a cycling trip with at least 80,000ft of ascent??????????????????

29/01/2013 at 15:46

MrZ- I will tell my mate who is one of the race organisers what you think of their web site, but being a forthright sort of person he is likely to respond in a traditional Anglo Saxon language. Thanks for the secretarial assistance. Stockport isnt tht far away from Southport anyway

29/01/2013 at 15:48

OS-cos your craaaaazy

AA-si it your calfs or Reading thats still stiff? The latter I think. Recovery runs are hell.

29/01/2013 at 16:14

agree 2old - my recovery run was dreadful . I think they are hell coz we do them inbetween hard sessions - another session on already tired legs would be even more hellish. Or so I keep telling myself

O4S: nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuts!!!!!

29/01/2013 at 17:24

O4S- anyway what are you cycling up? Everest?

Chick- you're right about recovery runs but having never bothered with them before I'm starting to see the benefits of them . 

29/01/2013 at 17:43
I think I'm too tired to do my 1400m reps tonight (what kind of distance is that anyway!) so will probably opt for a mlr instead and to the intervals tomorrow. It's wet now.
29/01/2013 at 18:11
Minni- P&D don't put much store in intervals anyway. It's the tempo and MP runs that they seem to like. I think Mora was suggesting that when he said MLRs were less important too with him emphasising the regular 10 mile plus run which I assume will be at a challenging pace. It's always wet ( except when its snowing) . Don't forget you've worked hard over the last month so there's nothing wrong with feeling tired. My four days ski break whilst not restful revived me.

Don't blame you Minni.

I don't like recovery runs which is why I don't do them often!

Hi everyone...

You want crazy? I had to queue for a treadmill in the hotel gym at 4.30 this morning!!! What's with that? I had an excuse - my body clock was still on UK time, but what about everyone else?  Anyway, I did a slow 6 miles, still feeling a bit rough but better than the weekend.  Hopefully tomorrow morning I'll pick up the speed a bit.

Right now I am in the middle of a sales conference with about 500 colleagues - it's all VERY American, full of go, go, go and not at all restrained as we Brits would be . Nice hotel anyway.

Minni - 1400m is an odd distance for reps. May as well make it 1600?


29/01/2013 at 20:22
Lol Freemers - I was thinking might as well make it 1000m!! Queuing at 4am? Eh? Do they not need sleep in Chicago?

Yup I didn't attempt the intervals tonight. Opted for just over 9 at 8:46, on a hilly route, in the rain and wind instead. I did 3 this morning so that's 12 for the day. Intervals will be fitted in later on the week.
29/01/2013 at 21:34
Free- queuing at 4am for a treadmill? Lol. And people say I'm bonkers. Thanks to this forum I feel almost normal or at least I know my madness is shared
Minni- good call, it's not a session you want to do when you're not up for it. No crazy intervals for me this week, I've been told!
29/01/2013 at 22:09

2old: current plan is to cycle from home over the Mendips, Exmoor and Dartmoor to Plymouth.  Ferry to Roscoff and cycle to Bayonne, near the Spanish border - about 750 miles and 20,000+ ft of ascent on my current route.  Then join up with a small group of like-minded loonies to do the Pyrenean Traverse - 13 days in total with 25 cols in 9 days including all the famour Tour de Fcols - Aubisque, Aspin, Tourmalet, Peyresourde, Soulor etc etc. 

Have sold it to Mt O4S as a gentle bike ride round France, while being a bit vague on the detail

intervals for me this evening, in some serious weather - see if you can guess which way the wind was blowing..

2m WU , 10 * 400  , 2m CD

1:43, 1:19, 1:35, 1:18, 1:40, 1:18, 1:45, 1:20, 1:45, 1:15 

reasonably consistent in each direction and a real battle of the mind - pleased to complete that

29/01/2013 at 22:34
DD - Ouch... If you substitute the sun for horizontal rain and 50 mph wind, that's exactly how I looked towards the end of MKM last year.
If you first went to the bridge in '67, we were quite good then. However in '76 we were back to being shite! It was so bad that for some reason Mickey Droy was my favourite player!

10 from me tonight in the wind and driving rain, but I absolutely LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT! 2.5 @ 8.22, 5 @ 7.10, then 2.5 @ 8.29. Hilly track so quite pleased that I've actually completed an LT run fairly comfortably.

Yippee Oompa

Nah Zuvai I can't work out which ones were into the wind!

Sounds like another amazing trip O4S.
29/01/2013 at 22:53

Nice one Oompa

My run was rubbish. Gave up at 3.75 miles. Everything ached. Especially my glutes. I popped in to see a club mate who is a sports masseuse and he gave me a quick pummelling..
