Minni v Dubai Dave
KFC - let me have your route when you work it out and I'll send you our route to the Tourmalet!
Major DOMS down this way.
Redders ((( ))) Pity we din't get a chance to stagger round together, I would have enjoyed your company.
Bro take it easy
Ooompa: to trust in the training you need to have done some
2old: that is indecently fast and ditto AA
Brol, hope you're feeling a bit better. what is the plan for this week and have you told coach about shins? Any changes, shoes, insoles? Unusual shin splints to start if no changes.
I had shin splints but probably 2003. long time ago.
2old Still aiming for sub 3:15 but haven't pinned my hat on a time yet, would be happy with 3:14:59 . And you get lots about what I'm doing, Personal training sesh this am and even my choice of reward. I'll dig the details about that 10k a week on Friday too.
Redders, thinking of you. Sounds like the LSR may have been just what you needed.
Barry/Spoons, damn I wish I knew I just had to stop logging and it would go away!
Carter - Well done on your 8m PB yesterday. There is a Yorkshire club have exactly the same colours as my club so it would be them you saw. No one from up here was there.
kfc- good to see you've set the pb ball rolling for your friend. Sorry to hear you're ill. There's some nasty stuff going around. My son has just sneezed over me as I type.
Oompa - I think most schedules allow for a period of illness, injury or life getting in the way so I'd say that's right not to readjust. However, I'd take it easy for a few days. Throwing yourself straight back into the schedule might lead to more trouble. Better to easy back.
Nice to see AA and 2old have well deserved hangovers, and AA do a detect a new found confidence?
Redders - poor dad and tough for you all.
Freemers a half the week before London? I hope you can hold back. That race always reminds my of Shaggy.
Brolish - I wonder if you've got a bit of this ache virus me and O4S have had? Seriously the week between Edinburgh and Northumberland halves I was starting to think it was all over. Everything ached so much and I just felt flat. I feel completely different this week though. All the aches have gone and I recovered quickly from my 20 on Saturday. Lets hope its something similar and in a few days you'll be feeling much better. O4S - lets hope you get sorted soon.
AA - will you still speak to us on the green start since you now really qualify for a Championship start?
Bro - hate to say it but your shin issues sound exactly the same as mine. Go and see a physio.
6 miles at 10:00 pace for me tonight. Calves were tight at the start but loosened up.
X post - good news Oompa. Why not do some mile reps at 3k pace as a w/up?
great news Oompa.
Simon - it was grimmer than grim. Dark, windy, cold, snowy. Even the dog was pi$$ed off! I can't bear much more of this.
Red massive hugs to you, hoping things work out for your Dad.
Cracking pacing AA, maybe we get a bit too obsessed with what numbers the garmin is throwing at us and don't focus on how we're actually feeling enough. Regardless, you've still done so well, you should be very proud of yourself
There's nothing like a bit of The Prodigy to get you through a gym session Barry!
Well done to your friend for another PB kfc, sounds like she's running really well.
SS sometimes with marathons it works to be a bit underconfident, your expectations are lower, you set off more conservatively as you aren't sure what to expect of yourself... then you end up nailing it.
Bro congrats on the official PB I know you hate rest, I hate rest, I love to run and I hate not running, but you have to think about what you want long term. Just have a few days off running, go swimming or spinning or out for a walk or something. It will give your shins a bit of time to recover. You shouldn't be in pain for the first few miles of every run.
Oompa that's great news on the lovely treadmill run. Re: picking up from where you left off with P&D - take an easier week first! I was saying the same thing about what the weather will be like come VLM day....
Minni your week sounds tough, but I have no doubt in my mind that you'll get those sessions done, hard work pays off!
2old: and there was me thinking you were a wild, untamed caveman. Never been called indecent? Never lived!
To my astonishment I managed a 5 mile tempo run at the club tonight and felt a lot better for it, the AGM that followed was so tedious that my good spirits took a tumble however.
Minni: sounds grim - we aren't too bad down here at the moment once the sun has come up.
