Minni v Dubai Dave
Sounds like it was a great wedding do Kiwi
Great YKW Minni, much quicker than last time! 10K isn't necessarily double the pain, I find it usually takes me a few miles to get settled into the pace. Confidence! We're going to run well
Nice HMP Chick, there's a 1:32 there for the taking if you do 13 x that! How are you feeling about Monday?
Oompa you're missing out with parkruns, you don't need to do anything once you've registered and printed out your barcode apart from turn up on a Saturday morning and actually run one! You need your barcode for the finish, you'll be given a plastic token, give both token and barcode to the volunteer holding a scanner, the results will be on the parkrun website usually the same day.
Definitely doolally Kiwi Spin sounds like it was fun today.
Last 20M for me tomorrow then taper time and time to go doolally!
Great YKW Minni
I'm a bit pissed must stop soon as I have a long run in the morning
Morning all! Happy racing everyone. Am looking forward to the race reports later
FRC, wow, what a mega training session/s you've been doing. And I love your accidentally speedster efforts on the TM. Sometimes, ignorance really is the better path! I think I've maxed out at 16kph for now as I really was a bit scared any more and I'd fly off the back. Think I'll save any increases for the next campaign.
Col, that's great to hear you had a good last 20m. So nice when your confidence gets a boost rather than a knock!
Kiwi, you will definitely find that spin helps. I got addicted to it last year when I couldn't run. I was doing 5 classes most weeks, some weeks 7 by doing back-to-back sessions. I have found an amazing difference in my speed work now I'm back running. Of course, what dropped right off was my endurance and I really struggled over my first few long runs. What the physio suggested to me (although I never did it as I never got round to buying a bike and couldn't face doing this on an exercise bike ) was to make one biking session per week equivalent to a long run by taking the distance you would have run and x3.
Spoons, any hangovers this morning???
Becs, that's awesome news!!! Yay! And just as the weather is (hopefully) about to get better for you
Minni, love it!! Has he not learned yet???!
Simon, you got me missing my biker chick days I have toyed briefly with the idea of getting one over here, but the driving is so shockingly bad that the chances of getting taken out are very high. That and there are no winding roads to get my knee down on Mind you, the speed cameras are all front-facing so at least I could gun it without getting a ticket and no one could catch me (except perhaps the zillionaires in their Veyrons...)
AA, 3.14 seems a very realistic target for you given the times you've been running recently. It might be scary, but it is realistic nonetheless. Isn't it better to shoot for a target that is within grasp if everything goes well and miss, than to leave it untouched and wonder what might have been...? That's my early morning philosphy out the way It's exactly how I'm approaching 3:44. I'm bricking it, especially having had a few shockers of runs lately, but overall I think I am capable of getting there. Whether I will, of course, is another matter entirely, but being here with you guys has massively helped develop my focus and self-belief and seeing what you've all achieved in your races recently has really inspired me. We are right behind you, every step of the way - most of us quite literally!!!
LSR for me today later. I'm quite nervous as I've heard the weather report for today: 33 and humid - gulp. Well, I will just get out there this evening and see how I feel, getting the miles D&D is my main focus, any MP will be a bonus. OH is picking me up from the park again and then pizza time
Have a lovely Easter, everyone, and I hope the post-race chocolate tastes even sweeter for those racing today.
Yep - sounds easy Minni
Porridge and run time for me
Excellent AA! Just what you needed. Taper time now Minni: almost a minute off your December time. Fab improvement! I reckon you could go sub 20 if you worked at your speed...carrot: Thanks for the vote of confidence, but certainly no 1:32 for me. A nice PB around 1:34 will do me. It's too close to the marathon for a flat out effort .Bro is racing a HM today isn't she?And where is DD??
Bro will be finishing as we speak I reckon. It was a 9am start. Come on Bro!
Chick - you never know what might come out of the pot tomorrow.
Last I heard of DD he was a bit ill after going out for a long run when feeling ill.... I am a marathon runner, I will run.....I don't know what's happened to Zuvai. I've sent him a couple of messages but had no reply. He's been very quiet on fb too.
(((Bro))) - shitness happens. Who knows what I will end up with tomorrow Hope DD & Mr. Z are ok ...
