Minni v Dubai Dave
Bro - we booked our apartment through www.waytostay.com - we stayed in Mitte opposite the TV tower. It was pretty cheap, around £300 for the six nights for the two of us. I love apartments as they have a little kitchenette so you can make your own breakfast on marathon morning at whatever time you want it.
Gazelle - HADD seems to have worked really well for those who've tried it, I've never dared for the same reason as Bro.
Hope your calf was OK on todays 21M Minni?
Carl - hope the rest helps, don't worry about Febulous I think a few of us have missed a run or two due to injury or illness.
10 minutes is more than you could do without pain Becs, lets hope this is the start of your comeback.
Kiwi - great news, sounds like you really enjoyed your run today Do you think the spin classes have helped to strengthen the muscles around your knees?
Really enjoyed the relays today - 2.2 miles each, ladies were teams of four. Undulating route but a beautiful day for running - cool, sunny and no wind! Out for more food tonight
Minni - Good long running.
AA - How about 10 slowish then 10 at MP 7:20 to 7:30, whatever you decide -enjoy, the conditions look a lot better than last sunday.
Carl - Concentrate on getting healthy for your HM, you'll soon be back on track for your marathon.
Becs/Kiwi - Good news on your return. Becs - Agreed my injury was caused by running at pace at the HM last weekend but I thought I was being a bit more sensible pace wise during training, I've been hitting the required pace for the training plan runs and only change I have made is to add some quicker miles to the end of my long runs.
Becs/Minni I'm planning on spectating at VLM this year, so up for a drink to toast all the PBs after, and Becs yes if you're around definitely give me a shout beforehand.
Bro have sent you the details.
What does everyone think about Mo planning to run the first half of VLM this year? articleUnless he's planning to be a pacemaker, find it a bit odd, as Paula says in the quote, either run an actual half or do the whole thing. Although I wonder if he would carry on if he was feeling good and this is all a bit of stagecraft?
Simon - I only do half an hour on the rower but I usually go through 5000m in around 20 - 21 mins so it sounds about right. Mind you it's a lot easier than racing a 10km run race.
I ran today! 30 mins / 3 miles / 10:00 pace. Felt OK.
Am supporting GF at Stamford 30km tomorrow. I plan on cycling round.
here's to a great comeback for Becs, Kiwi, and Spoons.Simon: it would probably take me 2hours to row a 10k Minni: eeek! That car thing sounds scary. How can something like that happen??Carl: don't worry too much about Febulous. I had to can last week's long run as I felt I was coming down with something. 2 rest days and I was ok again. If I'd run I'd probably lost a week or so. As much as I hate missing a run, sometimes it pays off to be sensible Good luck O4S (if you decide to run) and AA Just waiting for daybreak to do my 22. Pitch black out there still but at excatly zero degrees it sounds like a pleasant warm day . May consider vest & shorts
Good luck to everyone racing and doing long runs today.
No running today for me. I'm going to run every other day for a few weeks as I slowly build up distance. And no races, no speed work, no pressure from coaches, no club nights. Just doing my own thing, quietly building. Plus keeping up loads of gym, swim and bike. I'll be marathon fit in no time
Cheers Chick ref HADD, I'll keep reading before I make a decision.
Minni- I agree with all that you have said, I think I want both club and coach but I can't do both. I'm probably on a downer as I haven't done a race for a while and everyone on here are entering races and bringing out great results. I have a 10k next Sunday so will start to think positive and see where I am fitness wise.
Weeble- I'm in the eat all of the pizza camp, I wouldn't have the willpower to only eat half.
AA/O4S- Good luck today at Bramley 20
FRC- No I'm not running the VLM but will be spectating. I hope your niggle clears up.
Carl- Take it easy your body may just be letting you know it needs a few days to recharge. Which half have you got planned for next weekend?
DD- I like your conclusions on being coached especially E and F!
Becs- Great to see you back and enjoying your run.
2old- Have a great time skiing.
Minni- Sounds scary when your car goes out of control, at least no one was injured.
Spoons- Marathon fit or Tri fit???
2Old: where are you skiing?
Spoons: sod running do an Ironman for your comeback
Becs: Your a baby! Good to see you back on form
Minni: turn into a bloater? I did 20 hours of Aerobic exercise last week, that needs fuel!
Cycled for 3.5 hours across the desert, I think I'm going to hate my bike by June.
22 miles d&d, a smidgen under 9mm pace. 70% of max. HR. Nothing spectacular. Glad to see the aerobic fitness is where it's supposed to be. I cursed myself for having done more lunges yesterday though ... I sure felt it towards the end
Wow, AA nothing like your plan, but what an awesome 20 miles, you are on fire at the moment! Sounds like Mr and Master AA had good runs too.
Minni - bizarre incident with your car, hope it doesn't cost too much to fix!
Chick - a good 22 from you.
SS - don't be too hard on yourself, it is always surprising how much fitness we lose during a period of injury etc, you've come on loads in 6 weeks,the speed will eventually come back. I couldn't run that far in 28 degrees!
Spoons - how did your girlfriend get on in the 30km? Good to see you are back running.
The bionic woman had us doing a mix of seated climbs/intervals at spin today, I thought my thighs were screaming yesterday, gee today during the seated climbs they were on fire! Convinced that other than keeping me sane, spinning has helped build the glute muscles, probably will stick with it twice a week.
