Iron Min v Soup Dragon
Now, just hold on a mo! This pizza isn't like shirts at the end of the race, is it? You know, fastest finishers get in and nab all the well fitting sizes, leaving us slowcoaches with the dregs?
*wonders quite how fast she could run 20 miles*
Is Ashby 2 laps?
*wonders about plodding 10 and heading straight to pizza *
yes, it's 2 laps
5:5 miles today for me and my dawg
Morning all. Just a quick catch-up. I did a rubbish run on Tuesday from work. Bliddy hard work it was and only 5 miles, one of those that don't work. Had a rest yesterday instead of another run and then an evening TI session in the endless pool. I just love my TI sessions. An hour on the bike planned today so it will be the long way home from work or a turbo top-up.
<wonders if Ashby is too far to go for a 1 lap 10 mile plod and a bit of a forum get together pizza. I don't want to do 20 but 10 is perfect. hmmmmmmm>
Sounds like a plan Soupy
Shame about your run
I did 6 yesterday, round & round a very muddy park!! DD loved it !
Evening. I'm tired but in a really good way. Had a lovely 40 mile bike ride today with Podds (and a few others) on another classic Dustboy Special. I have so much to thank DB for in terms of cycling. He can really put a good route together and he's very encouraging to those of us at the back. Only averaged 13mph even though I was struggling to keep up in places but 40 miles is 40 miles. I had another go on my tri bars which still felt really wobbly. I hadn't realised that I was saying"whoah,whoa, whoah out loud! I'll get down to the track I think for a few goes.
On Friday I did my long run of 90mins. It was hard work and I nearly gave in but slowed it right down and did the job. A slow 13.5min/miles.
So end of week 7 and I've missed just one run but done more biking than the plan says. That will do me.
well done Soupy
I did 10 on Saturday my hands were frozen, even with gloves
Well done Soupy - nice bit of biking there, resplendant in yellow. I couldn't be a pirate, yellow just completely washes me out and that's just one of the reasons!
I had a lovely run yesterday, started with gloves on, but shed them ~ half way. They ended tucked in my bra, yet another reason I'll never look stylish when running. ~19 miles for me (should have been 18, but I managed to turn garmin off accidentally and not notice immediately ). lovely weather to be out - I think clear and frosty is my favourite running weather. Had an early night last night, heading for the same tonight!

You most certainly were Soupy !
When Dustboy said you sounded like an air raid siren winding up I did wonder if he was exaggerating......................he wasn't!!!!
But seriously well done for giving them a try - as you say it's a whole new learning to ride a bike again experience......
Good running there HL and impressive mileage....
A bit myself too so off to bed early tonight - several broken nights recently on top of the increased training load and a very heavy working week last week with several late nights have all taken their toll............and I'm no spring chicken these days!!
I'm doing Brighton, so a week before VLM. I went with an 18 week plan, then added 2 weeks for contingency, so I seem to be a bit ahead of lots of people in terms of mileage. Plan has alternating long runs of 20 & 15 for the next 10 weeks. I have to say that at the end of that run I did feel that this might be achievable.
Have fun out in the cold, wrap up warm.
Crumbs HL - that sounds like a lot of 20 milers (but then I am very lazy )........ which plan are you using?
Morning DL - you're doing good girl considering all the stresses before CHristmas and that silly job of yours....
I'm using Shades' 4 runs a week plan. It is somewhat mileage heavy compared to a lot of beginner/slowcoach type plans. But I felt I wanted something that started at the level I was at, then ramped up easily, but included lots of long runs. No speed work either. Includes runs at MP and tempo runs, but no intervals or reps (which I'd probably never do on my own anyway!)
Anyway, better scarper (should be working)
I have intervalled I actually enjoy them now all over quicker
werll done DL, on track for Ashby
oooh oooh have you heard?
HAVE YOU HEARD !!??
DL is on the list for Ashby
<hands forum 6 hat back to new team>
I hope our new sixers have as much fun as I have.
