Carterusm with Spoons
Wasn't windy south of the Thames tonight, Carl. Quite a few runners out too - good to see.
It was cold out there and very few runners out and about tonight. It was also seemed darker than nornal and as I could not use my backlight was running on feel for much of the run as I was away from streetlights.
Good thing is the GPS was working normally tonight.
Warm up 1.59miles 9:29 min/mile avg (15mins)
At pace 3.33 miles 7:11 min/mile avg (24 mins)
Cool down 2.15 miles 9:08 min/mile avg (19.45mins)
My fastest mile was mile 3 which I did in 7:02 min. I was dying for the last few minutes of the speed section and stopped after 24 mins because I came to traffic lights.
Certainly was tough both physically and mentally but glad I did it.
Carter - sorry forgot to answer your question on running track.
I ran my usual road / footpath route tonight.
Last year when we had snow which froze, I could not use the running track for weeks as the temperature being lower than the surrounding area it took it longer to thaw out and the park people would not clear it.
When I ran on it last Thursday the back straight was a little slippy with falling temperatures.
So it will very much dpend on the approach of the people looking after the track.
Why don't you give them a ring tomorrow to see what they say.
Good work Carl. And mile 3 was the quickest
take care out there in the snow and ice
Morning all. It's another freezing cold day with fog now thrown in foor good measure. An easy 6.5 miles for me this morning at 9:54 - http://connect.garmin.com/activity/262640337
Stay warm and safe everyone
Hope everyone's OK. I registered -11 degrees in my car today.....
Not a lot I'm afraid. I don't have access to a treadmill, the roads aren't safe and I can't get off road as I leave for work at 7am and get back at 7pm
Well done for getting out guys!
Planning to go to the track tonight before it closes for my interval session.
Last week I did 12 x 400 reps sp tonight I am planning on doing 6 x 800 m.
Hopefully it is not as cold as last night but I guess it is better than conditions for some of you.
Evening. Hope the track went well Carl.
Carter - how's it going?
Very quiet on here today. Everyone surviving the cold ?
It was very cold at the running track tonight, windy and icy underfoot in places.
I got there early enough and just managed to get my intervals in before they turned out the lights and I did my cool down in the dark.
I found it tough from interval 3 onwards tonight. A combination of a very late run last night slightly faster than I should have done and the cold tonight. AS this deamnds more from the lungs I found breathing in loads of cold air extrenely unconfortable.
Section times as follows :
Warm up, 8 laps at 8:55 min/mile
Intervals of 800m as follows :
1. 3:15 min
2. 3:12 min
3. 3:11 min
4. 3:10 min
5. 3:14 min
6. 3:12 min
Cool down, 6 laps at 9:08 min/mile
Thanks goodness tomorrow is a rest day. Supposed to get snow here in London tomorrow so Saturdays LSR might be a challenge.
Anyone else get out today ?
Carl- very impressed indeed! My treadmill is becoming my friend....
