Sarah Osbourne with Minni
Just nipping on to say good luck with the parkrun Sarah and Minni!! Hope weather is ok and you get your PB Sarah! ... Just not sub-20 just yet ... give me a chance!!
Do I hear snoring?
Sarah - I think I was the one being stressed on the last run before the marathon thinking it would blow the race being out for so long the Sunday before, BR tended to stay calm The marathon went really well though, so no need to have worried.
Hope you enjoy the parkrun this morning!
Minni - I started off at one session of 15 x 400 with 10 x 100m strides at the end, then did 2 further sessions of 20 x 400 with 10 x 100m strides at the end. I remember really enjoying the sessions and although I haven't run quite as many since, it's a session I would certainly do again and might incorporate into this block of training. The session was split into 3 or 4 sets with each 400m off 90 secs recovery and 2 mins between sets. TimeS I did then were 85-88 secs per 400m. Finishing with 10 x100m in 16-17 secs. Bliss
so what are the results from the park run.it was raining nasty here for my hour run earlier.hope it was better for you
Hey Sarah, how did the parkrun go? Wondering if curry-power is worth looking in to as a training tool...
To be fair, you must be 20 years older than her so you did better in real terms
And the results were......?? or
nice one Sarah That gives you a good benchmark for your training plan.
sarah - that is excellent in those conditions. You seem to be going really well at the moment. That sub 20 looks nailed on very soon!
great time for the beginning of the training especially at christmas week and in those conditions
My hubby hasn't managed a sub 20 yet..........but has several sub 3:30 marathons
Yes, well done Sarah. The conditions were far from ideal - rain, lots of standing water, mud and a bit of wind. Sarah was off like a rocket and didn't slow . I was well over a minute slower!
I dread to think what my 5k time would be at the moment. We had a local race on Boxing Day that was on an altered course, probably 3 miles and I was nowhere near 7mm let alone 6.33, after a beer and a curry that's a very good result Sarah.
That's an excellent 5k time Sarah!
Minni - I wasn't that technical about the amount of grammes needed. However one really interesting thing is that on the 2005 depletion I felt absolutely fantastic. We worked out that it was cutting out the wheat and gluten from the bread and pasta.
