Sarah Osbourne with Minni
Congrats again on getting into the forum 6 - so pleased for you
I promised I'd stop by and post Sam Murphy Strength Circuit - enjoy, and hope it's useful!
Have a great Christmas everyone, and all the best for 2013...
I wondered why I hadn't received any update notifications on this thread. Perhaps that might be because I haven't posted here yet So here's a post so I can find it again
Good luck Sarah. I'll pop in occasionally, though you are too fast for me.
Oh wait.... everyone is too fast for me!
I'm just off to eat a mince pie that has been left by the fireplace. Not too fussed about the raw carrot, though. Happy Christmas!
Minni wrote (see)
Oh god this is not looking good for me. I don't really have the killer instinct and feel if someone's better than me then I'm happy to let them have it!
Raw turkey tomorrow and you have to catch it yourself.
Hi Sarah- I'm a hospital doctor ( surgeon). I occiaionally have very busy on call nights/ weekends, which can wipe you out for a couple of days trainig after.
Treadmill running- I started as a pure treadmill runner, and for my first marathon, more than half my trainig was on the tready- now only resort to it for intervals and if the weather is horrible.
Merry Xmas Sarah. hope its been a good one and looking forward to 2013....
Did 4 1/2 miles in the rain avec santa Hat this morning- raised a few smiles in the cars going by
Sarah - well done on getting out for a run today. I managed 6 miles during the day and decided that it was time I started listening to the advice of minni and spoons and slowed down from my normal 7:30 / 8:00 mm to 9:30 mm. They tell me it will pay off and I am sure that it will. Planning on doing the same tomorrow.
Will pop in every so often to see how you are progressing.
Sounds like everyone had a good day yesterday including getting a run in
I would reiterate Minni's point about slowing down general training runs to get faster. I had a habit of thinking just because I could run 8m/ms then that's what I would have to do every training run and unless I was there or there abouts I wasn't happy with my runs, but eventually after messing about for too many years I saw the light and slowed to get faster
Enjoy the race Sarah and anyone else doing Christmas races. Off out for run with PRF and BR now and they'll be going slow for me for sure...
Glad you had a great Christmas!! Hope your 5 mile race went well this morning!
Did you wear your Christmas fairy outfit? I didn't get my Xmas parkrun in yesterday - did 5 miles in the dark instead. Seemed like a good idea at the time!
Hi Minni, I had been running for around 7 years before deciding to train properly. I had plateaued for a number of years and was just happy to tootle about. I did race and enjoy training, but never had the benefit of a forum like this as when I started the only really running information came from the magazine, say no more... I also suffered a lot of injuries in the early years - lower legs, shin splints, stress fractures, lower back problems and then found the RW forums in 2003 I think. I started listening to advice from others and then got the benefit of Mike Gratton to guide me which resulted in a marathon pb of 3.14.53 This is the link to my online thread with MG which has my pbs at that time http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/racing/hard-training-dawn-critchell-hilly/1476.html and this was my progression after that http://www.thepowerof10.info/athletes/profile.aspx?athleteid=77565 As you can see since my best year of 2006 I have not really hit close to 3hours again, but have been in shape a few times to do so. I'm 48 now and I think I might just give it one more go to achieve sub 3 paying more importance to the things I've ignored for a few years. I had a friend who is the same age who did sub 3 last year and she has renewed my motivation to give it a go
Sarah - hope you had a good race. A few friends of mine were there today, so have seen a few pictures.
I haven't listened to it yet, but will do so
Yes, I believe it was my friends first time of sub 3. She had got close a few times and had run a 1.22-1.23 HM. I have another friend again the same age who has done it twice in the last couple of years so yes there are women out there still doing it.
What are your pbs?
