Minni v Dubai Dave
Have fun tomorrow carrot.
2old - yes I'm thinking I perhaps need to get a professional opinion. It's definitely much better and not going into spasm but it's still a bit up and down. I've hardly run in the past 5 weeks and I guess I'm just like you and Barry and want answers but we all know that really rest is the only thing that will help
Tonight's run was 4 miles and a bit less comfortable than the same on Wednesday but not enough to make me stop and again speeding up didn't make it worse, if anything it eased - probably because my stride was a bit different.
I think tomorrow I'll try a double of 2 x 2m and see what that brings.!
Carot - Enjoy the strippers tomorrow night
Minni - Hope the calf behave's itself.
Carrot - have a great time tonight....and I hope you survive to come and tell us all about it
Minni - Have you done the first of today's double yet? Hope the calf is OK.
So one solitary run so far this week which is not good enough! So I'm going to hit the gym this morning and do my own "double" - will park up and do a run first, about 6-7 miles, and then do my weights session. This afternoon I plan on watching the Les Mis DVD - never saw it in the cinema and it is not OH's cup of tea at all, but he is out all day so I can indulge myself
have fun, carrot Freemers: enjoy Les Mis - watched it in the cinema with my goddaughter and we both loved it. Helena Bonham-Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen are a hoot Minni: good luck with the double Ran 3 miles to test the quad and it seems alright. Did some strides too and I think everything is back to normal. Wet 'n windy here
Carrot awesome p.b, well done! Enjoy your hen do
Ant - ouch, some drivers are such idiots! Hope you are ok now!
Brol - awesome 1st place, wahoo!
Minni - hope the calf is better.
2Old - great running from you, must be good to get back into it.
Second week of no running, and knee still swollen.. going to go out tomorrow anyway, figuring resting isn't helping the swelling so sod it!
Enjoy the bank holiday peeps
Carrot - have an awesome time tonight
bro - well done on first place. Brilliant
minni - hope the calf is godson today's test.
Freemers - have fun Today. I haven't seen les MIS yet either.
Yesterday was 5 miles and I though I was really pushing it. Ave pace 7:29. Where's my speed gone? Felt like half marathon effort too Today I braved the lake. 1.5 km was all I could managed. It was 13.1 degrees. What's going on? Colder than ever. This tri training is killing me. I feel so tired all the time. Must be my body getting used to cycling and swimming.
Ant - sorry I forgot to say I hope you're ok now.
Carrot - long run planned for tomorrow post-hen do?
Minni - sounds like the calf strain is hanging around, mind you I think they can take quite long to recover.
Chick - best of luck on the 10K tomorrow - you may surprise yourself
Lovely 4 mile recovery in the sun this morning. Feeling pretty good despite race and bike accident. I even managed an hour's workout in the gym beforehand, so everything seems intact.
Out for my wedding anniversary dinner tonight, with a 8 miler slated for tomorrow AM followed by an afternoon of bbq and sun - if the forecast is to be believed!
AA- well done braving that pond. I'm finding the non running stuff tiring too. Probably our bodies aren't conditioned for it and the intensity too
Ant - nice recovery From that accident . Enjoy the barbecue run combo tomorrow
Chick - good luck with the 10k
Kiwi - hope knee ffixes
minni - hope your 2times 2 goes well
no exercise today Nor tomorrow ...time for some sun
I did indeed surprise myself ... 44:11 - it's a PB . It's also what the calculators predict I would do off my recent marathon time. So yeah, it's not a brilliant time but considering the non-existent build-up I'm well happy.2nd lady including some bling, flowers and best of all: free entry to a 15k night run on June 14 .Ran with a group of 2 girls and 2 boys till about 5k when one girl pushed on (she won in 43:43). Managed to shake the boys (they didn't like that and were trying to stick around) and had to sprint for about 100m to get rid of the other female. Picked up a few more boys that had gone out too hard but the last 2k hurt like hell.Ran naked so no idea about splits. I hate 10ks
Chick - yay well done! Just shows you that marathon training affects speed less than people sometimes think.
Just come back from my 9 mile long run and it is absolutely gorgeous out there. 33 miles for the week, 2 races this week, feeling back in the game. Shortly to spark up the BBQ. Have a great weekend y'all
Chickadee - well done on your 10k. That's a good time and finishing 2nd lady is brilliant.
This morning I had a half marathon race. I knew there was no chance of a pb but thought it would be useful to see where I am post marathon. My race plan was to start out at 1:30 pace and see where that got me. I was going well enough until a big hill at 6.5m which really took it out of me and after the hill i never got back on pace. I finished in 1:31:50 by my garmin. I have another half in 2 weeks time where I would hope to see some improvement.
YES! Finished the Edinburgh marathon in 3:27:47
My first marathon even pacing - made a huuuuge difference, no wall, no walking and a sprint (ish) finish, plus over £700 for my charity. All in all - a good day.
Big thanks to FRC for sending me some really useful race info!
Congratulations Dale that's a great result for a first marathon.
Col, good half time. Is that a new PB?
Some great 10ks. Carrot, I like the way you talked your time down and then went on to beat your initial goal anyway. Plus the way you finished off the men trying to hang onto you . Hope you enjoy/survive your hen night.
Ant, very promising for a PB soon given how much ahead you are of where you were last year. Hope all is okay after the accident, there are some drivers who are just idiots when it comes to bikes.
Bro, first lady . That's something to enjoy regardless of the time, although I'm sure the times will improve soon.
Chick, well done on 2nd and a PB particularly as you weren't expecting it and you've been having problems lately.
Simon, some amazing long cycles for you. Are you into the taper now? I'm with kfc in betting that you buy that bike at the end.
Minni, I hope the runs today went okay.
A very frustating week for me with long days including travelling with work leading to very limited time for running or any training. Possibly a good thing for the knees as they were quite sore at the start of the week. Finally a chance to run today and I loved getting out there in the sun as there was enough shade to enjoy the weather without overheating. I'm very slow at the moment, but things seem to gradually be heading in the right direction.
Haha chick us girls all hate 10ks but you must be thrilled with a Pb?! Well done.
col - very impressive HM time and definitely something to build on. It'll be good to see what you do in two weeks. Well done.
Glad to see its all coming on becs. mr Minni has started training for the Olympic run - I think he'll be looking around the hour mark.
No running yesterday it today as the calf is sore again. Stuck to alcohol instead. Mood hasn't been good today.
Chick, great p.b + bling!
Minni, boo re the calf
Onto wine bottle nmbr 3 of the weekend, had to switch allegiance as ran out of wine + the off licence only stocks Australian Sauv blanc.....
Becs - Glad its heading in the right direction for you. Yes the bike's great.
Dale - Great first marathon.
Col - Great half.
Chick - Well done on second lady
Minni - Sorry to hear your calf is still playing up, yes just get pissed.
Popping in briefly. Found some sun and swam a hot 1.8 k.Lots of Rioja too
minni- see a professional asASAP!!!!
chick - a very good naked 10 k . Have to try it myself. Looks like you've fixed your post marathon niggles
Just popping in - I'm 24 hours plus into a 36 hour stint of cleaning showers, carrying bags and generally making myself useful. Nice to see other people suffering on the 100 when I have already completed it.
Minni: this time Pam's PB was not alcohol fueled!
will catch up when I get home
