Minni v Dubai Dave
SS - Well done on the bling
Minni/Becsa - Well done on your Olympic run, and to Mr Minni
Chick - Nice early lsr
Kiwi - I hope Mr Kiwi didn't mow too many runners over today
Congratulations SS, how / where did he pop the question? What lovely news I take it the spin session and treadmill miles were binned?
Sounds like a tough brick session AA! You've already got the mental strength.
Hope you're enjoying Latitude Spoons
That's a good 22M in the bank Barry.
10M is a big chunk to be doing at MP now Chick, no wonder it felt tough.
5M pain free is good news Kiwi, enjoy the summer break.
There were some seriously fast runners there on Wednesday Shildon. You've been getting some good long runs in, did you make a decision on NY?
Well done Minni (and Mr Minni) events like that are more about the experience than going flat out. I've been getting that 'who turned the sweat glands on?' thing when I get back from a run too.
You sound like you really enjoyed today too Becs, well done on your time! It's good that you feel that you can race again pain free.
20M easy from me this morning, 15 of those done with a friend which was great. I do the vast majority of my runs alone, especially the long runs, and was surprised by how quickly the miles just disappeared. She's doing the new York marathon (not the New York marathon) the same date as Amsterdam so we'll get a good few long rns done together
Minni/Becsa - well done on your Olympic run yesterday
Thank you for your comments Speed Sheep my run Sat was much better than I anticipated & many congrats on the Bling
Barry(OH) Great long run from you, your doing really well. I'm proud of you! I've bunked off running this AM as tired from a busy day in London yesterday.
Planned run after work today
Glad you enjoyed yesterday Becs. That's a great time and I'm sure it will give your confidence a boost.
Carrot - its nice to share the long runs with someone and especially great that your marathons are at the same time. Are you doing anything different with your training this time?
I agree with PL it's great to see Barry doing long runs again. I think we're all proud of Barry working through his injuries and coming out the other side.
I'm feeling a little fragile today... Met brolish for a delicious Thai meal and way too much fine wine. We ended up hammered!
Great running at the Olympic park Minni and Becs, specially given all the slow fatties you had to weave around . Hopet he hangover isn't too bad minni!
Some brilliant long runs - chick / carrot / daren / shildon / barry. A bitcooler over the weekend, which always helps. Fantastic mileage from you all.
After last week when I only ran 3 days and not very far at all, I was determined to get a good long run in yesterday. Originally planning on 13, but I took a slightly different route and ended up with 15, quite undulating as well. Lovely morning for it - nice breeze and overcast, even a little drizzle at first. Average pace was 8.15.
Olympic Park run sounds great, Becs and Minni . 37ish sounds great given the crowded conditions. Shame they are tearing the place apart. I hope some of the more interesting things remain. Stratford is a depressing place (used to change trains there) and I thought the whole Olympic thing did wonders for the area and the community.Shildon: nice mileage.carrot: up to 20 already, wow! Know what you mean about running in company. Time passes so much quicker when you are able to chat away Pinklady: hope your run goes well tonight and it's not too hot. We have another 30 degree plus week lined up.Have decided to take it a bit easier this week. I picked up a number of niggles, notably one in my left calf which is beginning to bother me. Whenever I get up and take a step it feels like it wants to cramp. This has been going on for a week now. It also feels slightly sore when I run - I can run on it but it's not 100% and I'm now scared it could turn into a full-blown injury. Done lots of speedier stuff lately and blame that. Hopefully I can nip this in the bud
Olympic run sounds like fun
Latitude was great although I think I've drunk enough beer for the next few months
Need to get back into some proper training really....
What luxury logging on during a weekday, can only be holidays!
Sounds like the Olympic park runners had fun, well done to Mr Minni too.
Barry great to see you bashing out great long runs, gives us other injured parties hope You have made a remarkable recovery!
Up to 20 mile runs already Carrot, that is impressive. Will be nice to have someone to share your training with from time to time, I usually do all my marathon training by myself, can get lonely at times on those long runs!
Hope your niggles settle down Chick.
Minni - not at all surprised that you and Brolish got hammered - sounds like Spoons drunk enough beer to join you on that one
Mr Kiwi loved his skyride yesterday, he did say it was choatic meeting up at Straford station with so many runners everywhere, lol! The skyride organisers hadn't realised the run was on. Anyway, he is now a lobster, as being a typical man he didn't think he'd need sunscreen!
Time for the sunlounger, meant to get to 33 degrees here today
Daren nice to see you back and speedy.
Barry, 22 miles in this heat, insanity is clearly working for you and injury free.
Ant - Trail running & Mo - see below. trail or mega expensive treadie for Mo. http://m.guardian.co.uk/sport/2013/apr/19/camp-mo-farah-london-marathon
chic, 16, 10@MP this early on, look tasty. Have this week as kickback by sounds of it. col, 12+16 great running, tough, but will be worth it.
Minni/ becsa/ Mr Minni , nice Olympic runs. no comment on Brol being a bad influence with booze.
Speed Sheep, nice bling ! Congrats.
Ultra was only last Saturday, tiny mention page 1558. Report still to post. TRX Atomic press up is the better than spider press up but I will look at my log to see if any better or to vary. Inverted row with 10-20kg plate on your chest perhaps, or crunch/ situp with same weight held above you. Well you asked!
Recovery weirdness continues.. following Tue pyramid session 3 days after ultra... Wed S&C session with coach and Thu tempo run both pretty much as normal. Circuit Saturday, Sunday yesterday had a running workshop with local super fasty Jonny Mellor.. (29 min @ 10k, has run with Mo and beaten the Brownlees. He might make Commonwealth games and has just run a sub 4 min mile - very fast!).
Second speed session of week, 8 x 2 min efforts with a certain cat in the lead, won the orienteering exercise (okay, treasure hunt + questions) then a very tough circuit. Seem to be flying at moment and feel great. Thunder Run this weekend!
I'm very embarassed. There was a BIG typo in my race report as my time should have said 47 mins 22 NOT 37 mins. . I spotted it this morning but couldn't get my smartphone to post to correct it . Very sorry everyone for misleading you with my bad typing.
Despite the 2 mins a mile slower time I'm still happy with it. It's around the best I was expecting given the training. I'm not going to get PBs unless I can run consistently without breaking down all the time, and this feels like a small tentative step towards that.
Hey all. This thread has disappeared from the main page! But luckily I got hold of a linky from AA. Ta. I wonder whether we need to take issues into our own hands and start another thread. I guess time will tell.
Anyway was in Buxton over the weekend and only managed to get a pass to do some mountain biking. 30 miles around the derbyshire dales with over 1000m of ascent - including a few 20% climbs.
Nice and cool over the weekend up in Buxton. Back to baking conditions in London today though. Went out for a 5 miler at 5pm at it was reading around 33 degrees. Mental.
SS - congrats
FRC - sounds like you're well on fire! Best of luck for the Thunder run.
I can get the thread on my iPad but not on the PC
cycling this weekend, 1x20 miles and 2x65 miles, hills, hills and more hills! BA is in a strop and claims I am attempting to wear him away (he guessed correct). Tried to run this morning but could only manage flat - legs refused to contemplate any incline.
Glad you both enjoyed the run in London - I'm looking forward to being back in the stadium on Friday.
Barry: great news on the long run
Pinklady: sorry, belated welcome to the madhouse
SS: another one bites the dust!!
Spoons: nothing wrong with banking some extra beer, you never know when there might be a shortage.
The rain is getting very close to us, looking at the radar.........
They can take our thread but they'll never take our bookmarks!!!
Minni I'll be doing a bit more mileage, plus a few more harder runs including some HMP tempo runs (I thought I'd escaped those by ditching P&D)
Are you still doing that castles marathon Free? Good long run at the weekend, that's a decent pace.
You've had a few hard weeks of training Chick, with fast LT sessions, long MP sessions, you're probably due an easy one. Hot date with the foam roller!
Spoons if you can't drink beer like it's going out of fashion at a festival, where can you?
Hope you remembered the sun cream today Kiwi!
Good luck for Thunder Run this weekend FRC (and Bro is running too isn't she?) - going off the forecast, Thunder Run is very apt.
O4S great to hear you're still hammering the miles both on wheels and foot.
Trendy 5M from me this morning. Nowhere near as warm as it was for Ant's though!
FRC - Have you tried, I think they call them diamond press-ups. Hands very close together, with forefinger and thumbs touching, making a diamond shape, they target the chest a bit more. Do as many as you can, then revert your hands back to normal and continue to failure, no pain no gain
Kiwi - Only 6weeks off, life's a beach.
Hot, humid, hazzy evening, but still no thunderstorm, so took a bumbag to carry some water. 7m @8.59 pace, slow and shit. But the goods news is, longest run since.........mid Dec12, and still no PF pain. Hopefully my cycling endurance will carry over to my running.
I emailed RW yesterday about the thread but had no reply as yet....
We're still in London athe last night on our way back to the hotel the kids asked if we could go past the Palace. We arrived there about half an hours before the announcement of the baby came through. Mr Minni and I were trying to pretend we weren't there and twice refused to be interviewed for the TV! The press were everywhere. Anyway the kids loved it and it was kinda cool to think that's where we were when the future king was born but we'll never publicly announce that - I'm only sharing it here because there's only a select few can see it!!!

No - I'm really struggling with finding time for a proper marathon schedule at the moment - in the middle of a big project at work that is sucking a lot of my time during the week, so quite often my plan for a run has been going out the window, or I have to cut it short to 30 minutes or so. Not really the best base for marathon training!
Minni - I was thinking last night how silly people were crowding round the notice at the palace about the royal baby....and then you tell us one of them was you
We didn't see the notice - the kids tried to and we just stood back looking rather uncomfortable!!!
Inevitable overload with the baby coverage on the news today - earlier this morning they were debating about whether she would be breastfeeding or not
oh dear - have they nothing else to write ?Freemers: hope your work settles - so annoying when it gets in the way but needs must. Becs: don't worry about time - the best news is that you were able to run pain-free. Hope this is the start to a consistent build-up for you. You are certainly due one!Simon: nice one - 9mm ain't so bad, considering the heat.I thought it was just me that had problems with the site glad I bookmarked it
What's the problem with the site then? I only use bookmarks....
Last night was a very slow/warm 12 miles off road.
Much cooler today and raining too!
