I ventured out in the arctic conditions (-5) and did 6 miles @ 10.02. It was that cold the sweat on my head was starting to ice over! Some fast tempo runs going on in here.
Wow James, you are the amongst the brave, hardy few who have taken on the outdoors! How was it underfoot?
Impressive PB Freemers!!
Not too bad at all actually, but I put on some trail shoes to be careful. Also had tights, long sleeve tee, jumper, coat, snood and gloves on! If my sweat wasnt freezing over it would have been quite a nice run with everything looking white on the trees. I like the feeling when you start to consider 5-6 mile runs as "short".
brrrrrr...shivering just thinking about it! It'll be the tready for me again tomorrow, which will be after work and after I've attended no. 2 son's parents' eve. I may need to dig deep to find some motivation!
Carter, I feel it's going well, or was till the ice hit! I'm definitely not as motivated when I can't run outside! I'm much further ahead with this schedule as last time I built my long run up slowly from 6 miles. Saturday is down for 15. So it could be a looooong tready session, or a cold outside run, should the forecast snow be soft and fresh (ha ha..as if!!) How about you?
Some good sessions going on here!Just in from my hill session - 4 mile easy run with 8 x 100 up a steep hill/jog down recovery in the middle..... 9 m/ml pace avg for the whole run. HR monitor on the blink on my garmin 305... try a new battery in the chest strap methinks.No snow or ice - just dark, cold, wet & miserable!I'll not adjust my plans or LSR at the weekend - just take whatever weather comes, go out and run and deal with it!
Thanks Carl! Your late evening running is impressive!
Nykie and Ricky- lucky you with no ice!
How late did you finish that Carl? I have trouble sleeping if I train too late in the evening, others just crash out afterwards. How do you find it?
This would be your ideal race then Carl:
Just had a look.
Could not imagine anything worse Pure torture but am sure there are people out there who enjoy this kind of thing !!
Great running people!! I'm literally using every bit of motavtion to get myself out right now! Can't wait to hear how your 15 miler goes on saturday rachel! I'm still on 8 miles for my long run on sunday! Its not meant to snow anymore at the weekend, so maybe its getting warmer!
Go Jess go!!! (well...how did it go?) I am at home for a quick cup of coffee before parents' eve, then will drag myself on the treadmill......
