For anyone trying to crack the 3h15 barrier anywhere in the world
Right, I just got back and I've skim read but really, you lot talk too much! I can remember a few things - a win for Poacher, nice one! A PB for Sal, fabulous! And a prize for OO - marvellous!
I have run all of 3 miles in the past week and I've eaten and drunk all sorts of things I shouldn't in far too large quantities. Back on it tomorrow I suppose. I have a list somewhere of the races I need to enter for the VLM run up, must dig that out and start parting with cash soon.
Oh, and weekly mileage up to 82, most weeks more like 70 - 75 though. It may take a while to build back up to that from here though
Sorry to say I don't think I'm going to get a chance to read back properly; just did a massive skim read. Apologies to anyone I've missed out, but briefly:Great report Bike It. Well done again.Likewise Minni.Hi to Freemers(fellow East Anglian), DS2, LB70 and Karen.Good to see all the planning going on.AR - good to see you back running.Ant - really hope you see some improvement soon.Poacher - congrats on the parkrun win.OOlg - great racing for a podium finish.Salf - nice PB! Sad news from me. On Sunday morning, we thought my father had had a stroke, but turns out his cancer has spread to the brain. Busy supporting mum. Work is going mental (new website live this morning). Still managing to plod the base training. Posting may be sporadic for a while. Oh, it was a really nice holiday on the Llangollen canal. Even did a couple of runs along the towpath. Take care folks.
Take care of you and yours, Gul.
Welcome back, Speedy.
Welcome, Karen - glad my directions to the thread helped (and v. impressed by the Comrades result!). There should be a decent sub 3.00 ladies' train from the thread!
Bit of a long workday for me yesterday. Off to run the 10M into work soon. It's been a while since I did that route - must be marathon training time.
Very sorry to hear that Gul, hope you can stay strong through the tough times ahead.
Were you on holiday Speedy- didf you forget to take your kit?
Thinking of you Gul. Take care.
Gul - so sorry to hear your news. Take care x
Gul - sorry to hear the bad news. Take care.
Really sorry to hear that, Gul - thoughts with you . . . .
Gul - very sorry to hear your sad news. Take care of yourself as well as those around you.
Base building continued this morning. Did 9.25 miles at 7:56 average. Felt pretty comfortable throughout and stronger at end than last week. I'm treating this as a MLR at the moment. Can I have words of wisdom please?
Previously I think I have run most of my training runs at too fast a pace. If I'm aiming to get around in 3:15 or less at what pace should I be running these midweek MLR's. I don't feel they take much out of me and, despite my age, I seem to recover well but I get the feeling I should be running a bit slower. I'd sooner not because I don't enjoy plodding much.
Have just started reading P&D, but not enough to know if I'm doing anything right or wrong. All advice gratefully received!!!
