Sarah Osbourne with Minni
I'm doing exactly the same as you ... hitting the treadmill for the intervals! Not sure I could manage anything over about a 9 min/mile on all the snow and slush!! Wow on doing 18 miles on the treadmills - that's AMAZING!! I struggle with anything over about 6 miles on the treadmill!
Also ... where's my presecription for cider and mulled wine?
Another great session last night Sarah. Well done.
Are the conditions any better today?
Sarah - I really don't know how you can be bothered to go to the gym so much! Great way to get your reading done though.
The Minni household is a very sad one at the moment with loads of crying going on (mostly by me ). I had a nice 12m run tonight along the coast - we still have too much snow here to get a decent run in. I'm hoping its away before my long one at the weekend.
Think I must have just slept funny as a feel great now....its either that or its the magic of caffiene!
It is the tendons at the bottom of my hamstrings where they meet the back of the knee.
nearly 18 miles on the treadmill
You are not human......
glad training is going well
Great training Sarah! You really seem to be enjoying it too, which makes it so much easier to do. Marathon training is tough on cold, icy and dark evenings! I went on the treadmill this morning for a few before work because I didn't trust the icy pavements around where I live in the dark. Although then went out this evening in Barnsley and it was mostly okay, but did have to run on the road a bit.
Glad to hear that your legs felt ok yesterday Hilly and you managed another 10 miles in the snow....it puts my 3 miles on the treadmill to shame. Do you feel almost back to full fitness and do you have another snow day? I do love my job and feel privileged to be a doctor, however some days can be quite busy and tough. I'm lucky as a lot of my patients do realise that I am busy and not sat twiddling my thumbs so when I'm running late they are forgiving, however in some places people aren't sometimes as understanding.
My fitness is returning quite quickly on training runs Sarah, but I'm not sure how that will translate to races. I'm doing Dewsbury 10k in a fortnight and I would hope to see a better performance that Abbey Dash where I had only just returned to proper training. Although 10k is not my best distance! Also although feeling stronger than I was I'm still not back to full miles, but getting there
It's good you like your job! I like mine too I changed schools in September and although busier than I was in my last job I get far more job satisfaction
Minni - sorry to read about your dog!
I think the snow won't be around much longer as although forecast for a bit more it's also forecast to warm up and rain, so fingers crossed it's washed away!
10k pb is 38:14, which I've been close a few times, but that was 6 years ago when I was 6 years younger Last year I did 39:13 and this year at Abbey Dash I did 40:45 or something like that, so hope I'm in a bitter better shape now. Never done Dewsbury Sarah, but BR has and I've been to watch it. It's straight up a road around a cone and back and is said to be quite fast so we'll see...
Off to Dublin after work today with a group of folk to do the Malahide parkrun tomorrow morning then fly back Saturday evening and long run Sunday - all go
Enjoy your 18 miles Sarah!
Anyone travelling on the Northeast line - tickets are released for travel on the Friday. I've just booked four tickets for £58.
Sarah - when is the Dewsbury 10k? It must be close to your HM? If its the week before or the week after then I'd think you'd be better putting all your effort into the HM?
Hi Minni, that sounds very cheap for 4 tickets, im impressed. Think im going to look at going up on the train for my friends hen party in the summer.
Hilly said its in a fortnight so it looks like it will fall the week before barcelona half.....I guess I can wait another week to race
