Minni v Dubai Dave
Morning-sun is shining here
Simon- sub3? I wish
SS-a target well in range for you I think and dont waste all that mental energy agonising .Ive never had a dry trip to Dubai either
Free- cantyou squeeze in a run around the lake? Wont take long or better still a day skiing?
Supposed to do some intervals today but wonder if its a bit soon after Sunday for these old legs. We shall see.
2.5km swim for me this morning. Coaching tonight. Will try and sneak in a quick 30 minutes weights session on the way.
Free- enjoy Geneva!
2Old- you're already up for intervals after Sunday? Lol, I like that! I wouldn't normally be allowed to do any quality until Thursday...
SSheep- too early for losing your mind, give it another couple of weeks.
FRC- yes, I have filled in the boss. He seems to agree that it sounds like shin splints and there is a very small chance of things clearing up completely before the VLM so will just have to find a way to manage the pain.
No running at least until Thursday with a lot of stretching, rolling and ibuprofen. My sports physio got back to me and said he wouldn't stop running completely but definitely reduce the mileage for a week or so and then see how it goes. I'll try to get to the gym tomorrow for a bit of spinning/ swimming. Rather miserable at the moment...
Bro - what a pain. Hope it clears up - at least it is a fair bit of time before London.
Did some mile repeats @ 6:25-6:30 this lunchtime. Oof they were pretty tough. Have got my target 5K YKW for Jantastic on Saturday. Put 20:20 down as target which would be a 1 sec PB. But that may have been a bit ambitious. We'll see!
Poor Bro, I really feel for you . At least you've banked the majority of the hard runs so taking a few steps back right now won't do much damage.Oompa: great news, mate! If you like TMs they are alright. If you hate them like I do they are anything but .

I'm about to head put in the snow. I'm going to need Prozac before long. This is just soooooooo miserable. Laters
Same here. I really hated my run this morning. It was soooooo cold and about 1/3 of the pavement had blobs of refrozen snow on it which made it hard going. Not enough to wear the Yaktrax but too much for a decently paced run . Am sick of it. Just so glad I did more running in Denmark than I was supposed to. Makes me feel less bad about shortening some runs this week
I bet it stays like this until April 21st when all of the sudden we get a heatwave and have to struggle with 25 degrees on the day
Ant: don't be upset, but at our local YKW last Saturday one of our Under 11 girls recorded 20.01
Brol: be sensible, all is not yet lost but it might be if you try to do too much too soon
SS: you are tempting me to match your target
Spoons: are you planning to audition for a part in Terminator 97??
2old: want an expert's advice on managing information flow to OH
I'm buying shares in a cottonwool company and some more in an Ibuprofen manufactuer..................................
Brol - I've pm'd you re the shin splints.
Chick - Well done for getting it done.
Ant - Nice pace for your mile reps. How many did you do?
AntP-youll destroy that YKW with all that pent up taper energy and that challenge from 04S. Very good mile repeats.
Bro-hope the shins repair quickly but you are doing the right thing giving them some TLC now. Crossing everything here for you. Didnt fancy intervals so did a tempo session instead.
O4S-cotton wool? Crash helmet more like!
Chick-you can almost bet it will be a heatwave on 21st. Good thing the AC was off at the gym this lunch time-very warm-unlike your freezing run.Congrats for getting out there and doing it.
Couldnt bring myself to do intervals-sorry P+D -but compromised with 6k warm up at 12kmph followed with 14k at 14.1kmph(6.54mm) and 1km cool down, 21k altogether. Pretty tough to say the least.Might do some intervals later this week if I've recovered
Bro - my shins seem to be OK now. I had them years ago and they came back last year. Go and see a physio. They gave me loads of exercises to sort out my weaknesses.
I only did 2 x 1 mile repeats! So not exactly testing, but I haven't done them for a while.
O4s - cracking stuff! Mind you they are probably a bit lighter then me I think 20:45 is probably more likely for my YKW, but I will adopt the crash and burn strategy of going out hard, which really worked for me last year.
PS Chick re snow now and heatwave in late April. Ho ho - written in the stars, written in the stars
I wish I was as shite at running fast as you are Minni
