Minni v Dubai Dave
Brilliant AA - that has made my day!!
It's all progress SS, your run sounds lovely!
Shildon I probably live within a recovery run distance of you... I used to drive my routes too, then discovered Gmap, then eventually got a garmin for my birthday a few years ago and now wonder how I ever managed without it!
People will steal anything won't they Chick?
I'm unfortunately letting the Febulous team down as I've been to physio tonight who has diagnosed a minor quad tear. I'm not to run today or tomorrow, stretch, lunge and ice every hour, then try a 4-6 miler on Saturday. So I'm definitely missing 2 planned runs. It was sore after the club handicap on Tuesday, then hurting after my recovery run yesterday. But I'm not doomed yet.
carrot but hopefully you've caught it in time and it will heal quickly.
Great North Run confirmation tonight. That's my year sorted but I've not fitted in the annual thread meet up. Anyone have any ideas?
Anything shorter than a marathon, they take up too much valuable drinking time.
I also had a deep tissue massage tonight which made a session on the foam roller look like a spa treatment! The physio who I saw was the same one Parsnip saw two weeks ago with his dodgy hamstring, Parsnip ran a 5K PB at the handicap on Tuesday so he seems to know his stuff
Thanks Simon - not knowing any better I stuck it on 5 so that's about right.
Carrot - hope you sort it soon.
re: thread meet up, I think we should do an LDWA 26.2 mile jog/walk with lots of cake, nice scenery and plenty of time for chatting.
Tonight was 30 mins elyptical trainer plus Bodypump class. Quite enjoyed it actually.
Many 2old. I've lost count. Probably about 10?
Barry, thanks so much for the encouragement, I'm feeling in a much better place
2old, I'm so sorry to have put you to the trouble of posting the GFA times . What I was wondering is what constitutes a fast GFA time? Not that that is quite in my grasp right now.....
Hi Gazelle! That looks like a great session last night, nicely done!
Chickadee, wow, that's some mileage to pack in!! I think you should book yourself a massage for Monday if you can fit it in. Give those legs some love Nice thief-prevention, like it.
I had a great session yesterday. I managed 6x800s with 200 jog recovery plus w/u and c/d in 45 mins and covered 8.7km. I ran the 800s alternately at 13kph and 14kph as I wasn't sure what kind of pace I could manage. That last 800 at 14kph was pretty tough and I was glad nobody else was in the gym (there's a small gym in our apartment block) as breathing was a little tough, but I made it I am so proud of myself as this is a huge step forward and although it was tough, it was completely doable. Then OH called and said he wanted to take me for a drink as he'd had a bit of a day at work so it was time to watch the sun go down from a rooftop bar with a bottle of Sauvignon
Rest day for me today so we are off to a spa for a floatation pool chill out, followed by brunch at The Ivy. It's a tough life
SS - that sounds like a brilliant interval session, and great progress....enjoy your chillaxing day
Carrot - ouch - don't overdo things...hopefully the physio will work his magic.
2old - nice LSR, although less of the S by the sounds of it
For a forum get together - we could always just pick a nice location, rent a cottage for the weekend and plan a long run taking in a pub or two along the way? If there's a YKW nearby we could do that too
Intervals for me later.
Oh, and it's snowing again
Snowing here too
carrot - r u in county durham. you say you are in a recovery run off me but i suppose it depends how long your recovery is as some guys on here run 30 miles
6 by 1200s with 90s recovery this morning with 2 mile jog to track and 2 mile jog home and 20 mins stood waiting for the track to open as the guy was running late. Planning on making my park run debut tomorrow think its about time followed by a 11 mile run home afterwards.
Snow stay away from north east please
Spoons - big up the gym massive. I love going down there and hitting the weights, I do it about 3 times a week. Don't know why some many runners are so down on it
Carrot - muscle tear ow. Hope that clears up.
SS - flotation tanks - god I remember doing those, haven't done it for years, might give it another go again now you've reminded me. I remember drifting into some warm comfortable space.
Simon - ah yes you had the same at Mancester, I remember, I think the bag collection there was actually even worse than at MK!
2old - LR on thursday 20 miles at 7:45! Smoking
Anyway I feel like I am finally on track in the marathon training. Did a good tempo run, 4 miles @7:09 + 3mi wu&cd, and my calf/achilles issues seem to have pretty much cleared up now. Got a 10mi MLR back after work today and a 30mi MTB Sportive tomorrow, so I hope the horrendous weather holds off a little.
Morning all. Lovely bright sunny day , cant believe snow is forecast for Sunda butat least its not here now like for some of you
SS-sorry no info as to FGFA I just found out that was where I was when I saw the sign above the enclosure I had to go to. It was interesting to see the GFA times anyway. Excellent intervals.Its always great to break barriers and enter new territory, it makes the slogging away week after week worthwhile and serves as proof that the training is working. Hope you dont have a sore head. You've balanced exercise and the good life perfectly
Free- I intended it to be slow but then just ran as I felt.Bit tired today so glad of the rest. Good luck with your intervals in the snow
