Minni v Dubai Dave
Right. Sorry about this but........
O O M P A !!!!
You're coming back from injury and you throw out a session like that with no real warm up! Are you mad??? Neither wonder the calf started to get tight.
Great that you got those faster miles in but seriously you need to make sure you warm up properly.
And as for running semi naked in this cold weather......
Evening! Excitement building for the VLM crew
7 miles easy for me tonight
Oompagate - they are not even real Oompas, unlike our Oompa. How dare they be on the front of the mag. And as for no fridge magnet.... well I don't know what to say.
I've been rounding up some lost sheep and can report Cooks is having a bit of an up and down Spring (nudge, nudge, wink, wink). And on the running front he had a HM he wasn't so happy with and a 10k he was delighted with and marathon training seems to be going well. Meanwhile Daren is almost recovered and hopefully coming back to running when Spring arrives .... might be a long wait. Zuvai is still lost in action.
Simon - Yes I did!!
O4S belated hugs from me. As always you just seem to take it all in your stride, hope you manage to get a more convenient date sorted out.
Oompa I did smile when I saw the front of my VLM magazine today! Imposters!! That's a speedy MLR....
Bro that's great news
Minni - thanks for the update on the AWOL team members, I was beginning to wonder! Wonder where Zuvai is? We have Ant's taper coming up!!!
Ankle update - after one mile on the treadmill on Tuesday I headed back there last night. My name is Carrot and I am a Treadmill Fan. My plan was start easy, and up the pace after a mile if it felt OK, then up it after each mile. In an ideal world that would mean a 5M progressive run, followed by 1M easy to cool down, maybe a bit extra to make up to 10K. Happily did 1M at each: 11.5, 12.5, 13.5, 14.5 and 15.5kph. All went to plan, apart from the planned 1M cool down which ended up 1M @ 16kph Followed by the last few hundred metres to make it up to 10K. Well I had fresh legs and didn't feel as if I'd had a hard enough session. No pain afterwards and it survived last night's gig. Fine this morning, managed a short easy run tonight. I'm not convinced it's PF - I've had that before - it's more on the side of my foot. Anyway, halving my usual mileage so far this week seems to have helped. It's a taper for Sunday anyway.
I can't believe there's no fridge magnet this year
Ah well that's ok then if you did 10 minutes warm up. Now we're feeling the lurve again.
Outside of the foot Simon, just below my ankle bone. I had the same niggle before Christmas but assumed it was just because my trainers were worn out - there was a big chunk had come out of one side of the heel! I started running in a new pair and the pain disappeared within a few days. Those same trainers now have probably 500 miles in them (although I didn't think of that until the pain had returned) so again, time for fresh trainers. But I was two weeks into the new ones when I did the 23 miler on Sunday and it was so sore afterwards. I'm just not the spring chicken I used to be
Flying check-in, but just wanted to send ((())) to O4S. Your attitude is an inspiration as always.
No Timex magnets?! What an outrage.
