For anyone trying to crack the 3 in any marathon anywhere in the world
CC - thats the sequel !
all the best for a better running year in 2013 Clearly, you of all folks deserve a lucky break
15M bagged, two double digit runs in 3 days !
YD -- sensible to back off, I had a bit of a 'mare with a dicky calf over the summer.
Your training continues to impress Jools. Though at this rate TR will be challenging you on run miles...
No run today -- leg feels fine but to be honest I'm a big creaky after the tough 20M outing. It does mean I'll have had 6 days with only one running day, which is the kind of thing I wanted to try. Also set a recent record on the bathroom scales this morning and that's before festivities start in earnest... maybe from the enormous Pizza Express calzone last night celebrating the Mrs' birthday.
Not sure how much I'll be on here over the next week, so have a good one all!
Nice to hear from Clearly. Echo the comments about hoping you have a good year's running 2013.
Glad to hear the cold is gradually going away, ZaTTu.
18M for me to bring up 62M for the week. Very steady (8.12m/m) but in fairness it was a hilly route and it was a bit windy at times.
Good mileage Jools & nicely done with that 5 mile PB. Nice 18 today - are you running VLM in 2013? Thought I remembered you saying that you were giving it a miss.
Clearly.. I think you've had a longer & more frustrating lay off than anyone on here in recent times, hope you get better luck in 2013. Liked the Toblerone pic, I'm very partial to those!
TR.. nice couple of double digit efforts, must be nearly January. Didn't know you were a Babycham tippler!
Good decision to give the calf a bit of precautionary TLC Y D.
I'm just doing what I can on sore ribs/back. A gentle 4, 5 & 6m in the last 4 days, only slightly uncomfortable so hopefully I can keep ticking over. The painkillers I was given by the Doc do take the edge off the discomfort but one downside is that they do make me feel a bit drowsy. Certainly no problem getting to sleep while I'm taking these!
very nice Jools, is 18 the longest you've done so far ?
Wardi - those short runs will keep the legs used to the impact. Nearly January and I'm a long way behind, so I hope to bag a few more double digit runs before January, when i hope to get the running commutes going again, but only 2 days/week this time rather than 3.
Wardi: I probably did say something sensible about giving the marathon a miss at some point, but then I cracked and here I am, P&D 24 week schedule being followed. Heigh ho!
Nice miles, Phil - and some quality sneaking in there. I feel tired just at the thought of 8 x 1 miles and then only a few days later 10 x 1k. Respect!
Short recovery run for me in a bit. Beautiful day for it
Al-P - I bet there was some serious flooding in the forest, some of the lanes round here I run and bike on the other sdie of the hill are the wettest I can remember.
PP - good one of the Crowie reps you only need 2 more for the full 10, top idea on the 30sec rest too - all the best folks use that. But a 20 inc MP and 1k reps too. You told Dan that you werent going to peak in January too !
Last 6am session bagged, after a family day tomorrow I can train at 8am until 2nd Jan.
Jools - nice 18 there, good way to start your programme. Are you doing London again?
LJ - decent park run and blimey 80mpw already. What are you aiming at in the spring? (80 already, f@#k me, lol)
PP - after how I've felt the last few days, reading that has almost put me back in bed
Al P - another one with solid miles
Wardi - hope the ribs settle
30 min easy (very) run/jogg but just nice to be out in the fresh air again. I cross trained pretty well last week before I got the flu thing so hopefully should get back to it fairly easily and the hamstring feels ok. Ran a 20 5 weeks ago and have had pretty good consistency this year so I don't think the running will have taken too much of a knock. Xmas morning run tomorrow I reckon.
Some impressive long mileage going down in Christmas week - Jools, Al P, LJ, PP take a bow guys.
Abandoned my run at 8 miles yesterday as I didn't feel up to it, but made up for it with 17 today. Going to run the Richmond parkrun tomorrow morning; love running on Xmas day - makes me feel like Daley Thompson Usually go to Bushy park but Richmond is nearer. Might do a lap of the park (7 miles) after so long as I don't get in trouble for turning up late for Christmas lunch.
Anyway, have a great Christmas everyone - hope you all get what you wanted.
Merry Xmas to all from me too. I can now sneeze without collapsing in pain so I guess that's progress! Club 5m run in the morning then a bit of indulgence. Might do the York Parkrun on the 29th if my rib/back feels ok.
Hope that ITB pain is short lived Al P.
Great mileage LJ, hope you wore a snorkel for the underwater Parkrun.
RS78.. good to hear your lurgy is on it's way out.
Another excellent session banked PP.
Have revisited the blog of late, so this morning's run can be found atwww.runninghomeforchristmas.wordpress.com
Merry Christmas! xx (am now a little tipsy;))
Christmas Day is always a rest day for me, but back to it with 13M this morning. Nice to be running at 8am instead of early doors.
Double digits for me too today, but seeing as how I failed to get out of bed until 20 past 10, it will have to be after lunch. A few hours after lunch as it will be quite heavy. Oops. I only had 500ml of wine, over the whole afternoon and evening. I'm so not cut out for this drinking lark.
13M for me, too, TR, but at 8.30 not 8am; followed up by Christmas pudding and double-cream: the post-run breakfast of champions. I hope
