Minni v Dubai Dave
Bro - Well done on 1st lady
Ant - 2min improvement is great, and close to your Pb time.
The ride starts between 11-12 am, and so with a 21hr ride I should finish about 8-9am the following morning.
Bro - 1st lady is amazing...not many of us have ever had that (I definitely haven't). So just put the time behind you and enjoy the bling
Simon - I can't even contemplate 1 hour on a bike let alone 21! How many stops and rest would you have in all that?
Arrgh. Knocked off my bike on the way in this morning. Was quite a slow speed side swipe (someone turning right while I was braking) so I think I have escaped with just a bruised hip. Luckily the race was yesterday I was thinking!
Some impressive stuff yesterday
Carrot-42mins-pretty damn quick and well done winning your private race with the token male
Ant-2minsfaster is excellent. Was the 3k still in your legs?You are only going to get faster
AA-40 miles is great going -soon be at Half IM distance.Isnt the race flat? Do you need those hills
Bro-1st lady Who cares about the time
Simon-another outstanding ride there in horrible conditions.You must be ready for that mega challenge now. Hope you do some running after as Im interested to see how this translates into running performanceDid you ride near Northcote Manor Near Whalley yestrday? I was having a nice lunch there whilst youu were slogging away
Minni-glad your calf is 98% there-when is its baptism of fire?
Free-Think I will give your suggested marathon a miss..pity
O4S-another 100m ? Respect..Have fun
Swim again today and maybe a run later.
Ant-sorry about the accident, hope the bruising is not too bad.
2old - damn deaf and blind drivers. I was yelling at him not to turn - to no avail. Dunno about the 3K in my legs. Possibly, but they do reckon a day of recovery per mile - and that was just 2 miles.
Bro - well done on the blingtastic bling
Simon - riding through the night. Be nice to see sunrise. There's a annual ride from London to the Suffolk coast - the Dunwich Dynamo - which is meant to be fun - but I have never done it.
Ant - Bloody drivers, you should of rolled around on the ground holding your back, and sued him/her
2old - Yes Northcote manor is nice and posh for afternoon tea. I went up A6 to the other side of Garstang, then turned into 'The Trough', and back down thru Longridge and Goosnargh. I hope you didn't feel guilty stuffing your face, whilst I was out toiling away
Freemers - it's a large organised event, broken down into 6 stages of about 40-45miles. 3 stops just snacks and drinks, then 2 stops at mile 90 and 170 with hot food as well. Your allowed a bag which is taken to each stop for you, with extra clothes/lights/food/Paracetamol/pro plus/batteries etc. There's also mechanical and medical support along the route, and pacers, and a sweeper wagon that can pick you up and take you to the next stop or finish if your struggling. So it's quite easy really
Ant - crikey . Hope no lasting damage...to the bike I mean . Ahh Dunwich - one of my favourite places. Nice pub there
Ant - Yes they do quite a few night rides for some reason, normally arriving in your destination as the sun comes up. I think they do a big one in London, were all the streets are closed to cyclists during the night
Looking at the official results for the 10K race last night: out of the 385 men racing - 70 got under 40 minutes! My 43:22 got me 122 place only.
PS on the Dunwich Dynamo, I forgot to add that it was an overnight ride! So sunrise on the beach and recovery in Freemers' favourite boozer
Carrot - well done on your 10k. That was a very quick time, and always good to negative split
Ant - 2 minutes faster than last year shows great improvement. Everything is going in the right direction and points to a good pb in the near future. I hope you are ok after this mornings accident.
Brolish - a first place is awesome. Don't be worrying about time, you were top of the podium!
Minni - glad to hear that your calf is on the mend.
Simon - lovely area for a ride and an indulgent long lunch. No guilt here
Ant - just shows how mad runners are- You were just relieved you'd raced last night not today. Looks like it was a qualityl bunch of runners Last night
got the swim done so will I get a run done ?
blimey Ant. I hope you are ok. Idiot. (The drive, not you).
I'm going to run tonight and see how the calf is. I still have a bit of pain in a specific area, which feels as if it could be bone, when I move in a certain way. ie if I put pressure on the ball of my foot I can feel it but its not massively painful. Do you think I've got a stress fracture? Anyone?
Minni - I had pizza for lunch and will have steak and red wine for tea And luckily because I am a runner I have a bag of frozen peas already at work.
No idea about stress fractures, sorry - but aren't they caused by repetive strain - whereas you've hardly run at all recently?
Hope you're OK Ant
O4S: sorry to hear about BA's cataract surgery. That's rotten timing but I guess you have to grab the opportunity and get the op done or else it's another long wait.AA: nice 600s. I keep asking myself the same question - how did I run 7:50s for an entire marathon when 9mm feels almost impossible right now ... and let's better not talk about speedwork 2old: great news from the physio. Enjoy the build up spoons: nice trendy 5 miler and well done to your GF for proper chicking youBarryB: that's good news then, isn't it? If they can't find anything wrong with the xray things must be alright I hope.Carrot: brilliant 10k ! I wish I could be anywhere near that! And you got a negative split too - EXCELLENT Bro: well done on 1st lady . Don't despair if you didn't get the time you wanted. It's pretty normal after a marathon. I'm exactly the same and I know it's a rubbish feeling but unfortunatly we seem to be those that take months rather than weeks to recover . Onwards and upwards. TBH, if I can get around in 45ish on Sunday I'd be having a good day. I'm thinking more 46 or 47 mins given the precious little running that I've done. I feel like my fitness has completely disappeared .Ant: another great 10k for the thread . You guys put me to shame. Glad you are still in one piece after the incident !Simon: great riding - you really knock those 100 milers out on a daily basis it seems!Minni: hope it's not a stress fracture ! Shouldn't fractures hurt when you are running?
Minni- hmmm. ...think you'd be better getting a professional opinion. I think it's improved recently because the swelling inflammation has gone down but left the damaged area more identifiable .
managed a run- just over 8 miles in a little over an hour. Very windy too. Heel not 100% but despite a couple of miles at near 7.15 pace it isn't break down. So that's 40 miles of running this month. ....mega mileage eh?
Excellent trio of 10k's:
Ant - Good racing and shows you are coming in to good form.
Carrot - Congrats on the PB. Very well raced.
Brol - Congrats on the first place, not the time you wanted but a win is a win.
Minni - They've delayed the restructure at my work til the middle of June, so no change for me yet and making the most of it getting some OT in this weekend. Take care with your calf/shin I know when I ran on mine the pain would disappear after about 3 miles but come back with avengeance the following day.
2old - Good news but don't push too hard too soon, that's 40 miles more than me.
Simon - Impressive cycling in naff conditions, many taking part in the main event?
Barry - There were upto 500 slots available, but I don't know what the uptake was, maybe a few hundred, shit I could be the only mad/crazy person doing it.
Ant hope you're OK after this morning, some drivers shouldn't be on the road. That's a fantastic 10K improvement since last year, bring on the next 10K in two weeks!Congratulations on the first place Bro! Brilliant, I've never come first before
Free sounds like he was attempting to chat you up...
How did the run tonight go Minni?
2old great 8 miler, you're getting your speed back.
Simon it sounds like it'll be an epic event to remember, I'm sure there'll be plenty of other crazy folk taking part!
My hen do is tomorrow
