Minni v Dubai Dave
O4S - damn big C - fingers crossed marathon and ultra aren't affected.
Ew - treadmills. Useful on occasion but wouldn't use them out of choice. I think 2old & AA would be flying even without them. I particularly dislike the fact that you don't get any wind effect.
Simon - stock up on Sudocrem - nice and cheap and does the job.
7 miles today with 3 miles at PMP. I think I am going to revise my MP to 7:35. How is everyone else doing with goal setting?
Ant - I sometimes get wind effect on the TM.
Goal Setting - still not gone there.....
AA - I have got a sports massage booked for the weekend. What is the difference between having a sports massage and seeing a physio ?
Sorry to break up the TM love-in, but i was joking when i said that i loved them... I can't bear the wretched things! Even with a TV screen and a view out across the golf course, it is tedious beyond belief. My gym's ones read in kmh so i have to "do the math". Lastly despite the so-called cooling fans in them, i still end up looking like the pilot from the film "Airplane", even after a short run!
On the subject of , i've just received my red plastic post and was excitedly opening it, when i saw two clear imposters on the front cover... The Oompa fraud squad have been informed!!!
I've just worked out what kph that would be on the TM and there's no way I could do it. Also life gets in the way at home.
AA - its as well as the weekend lsr, which is 3:15 duration run this weekend.
Oompa - I've just opened the envelope and seen them on the cover. Outrageous!
Just back from my session - included 4 x 1 mile @ 6.40-6.50 pace with 0.5 mile recoveries. 8 miles total with w/u and c/d. I'm still loving my intervals
O4S - I am really sorry to hear your news. I love your positive attitude and wish you all the best.
Brolish - good news on the shins. I am sure you are really relieved.
Interesting thoughts on the treadmill. I rarely use the treadmill, but this year I have started to use the track twice a week for intervals and tempo sessions. I find it easier to lock into a pace on the track than it is on the road, and generally there are other runners of similar pace to keep up with. Although having said that my pacing was all the place on Tuesday so maybe it depands on the type of session.
I have a half marathon on Saturday but the weather is looking particularly grim for it. They have just issued an amber weather warning for Friday and Saturday.
5m last night at easy pace, and similar planned for tonight.
Good luck all.
AA - 10am??? Oh no... Another 15 minutes of nerves!
Minni - Mega week! What will the total be for the week?
Nice mile reps Free.
Never thought i'd say this but i'm really jealous of all the good speedwork that's going on, on this thread.
I reckon it's gonna be a pb fest come the 21st!
AA-10am? A lie in ,thats great
Oomp-dont tempt fate please
Ant-my attempt at track speed work led to patella tendonitis and a year away from running
Free -excellent mile reps
10.00am?? I hope I have booked a late enough train home
OMG - more VLM magazine outrage....there's no Timex fridge magnet included What with that and the change of start time I'm going to need to go and lie down for a while.
O4S-train home? Arent you running home?Run faster and it wont be a problem
Free-all this magazine talk is making me jealous.
Its the 21st today...does that mean we only have a month left...unless youre counting down to Paris?
2old: I have Mr O4S to consider = otherwise I would obviously run both to and from VLM!
10AM start! Jeez - you heat lovers are going to love that... That's a really rather late start. Paris starts at 8:45 French time - ie 7:45 GMT.
Mind you with the weather as it is maybe we don't ever have to worry about heat again!
bogged down at work - no time to read back much but I read about O4S((((( )))))) gutted. What a damn nightmare. Them bloody C-cells picked you for some reason I wish they would stop now. Surely you've had your fair share? Hope you bounce back as well as you always do.
