Hilarious Keir!

Fraser - I've run plenty of miles along the sea front at Lytham St Annes, pancake flat, but you can cop a sand blasting when the wind is blowing.

Keir - so we are supposed to have paces for easy runs, steady runs, long runs............etc ? Good job I just run, imagine having to pace every run exactly !

Well done on the early runs Gul and Minni (you lunatics!)

I can't get out for any morning runs at the moment as starting work at 6.15am, hence I've only just got back from my 14 miles. Legs a bit tired as I think I went a bit too mad with the strides (fast running, not trousers) last night.

Don't forget to log your runs on Jantastic, we are looking a bit lightweight.

Took a day off today.... Plan said 8-10 easy but to be honest work took over for my usual lunchtime session time - I still had aspirations to run the commute later on but Mrs Fin (7months pregnant by the way) rang and was pretty tired so I've swapped around the plan a little and Friday's rest was moved to today so that I could get home and do bath etc with Miss Fin.

I think actually it will do me some good as I'm also trying to adjust to new orthotics - ankles have been protesting a little in the mornings so a rest might be good for them.

In trying to reply to DS2's question regarding pacing I have just clicked on my previously reliable link to the McMillian Pacing calculator. But it seems as if it has recently been 'improved' and is therefore now shit! 

Just tried that one Keir and not sure what to make of it. Putting in my last half time from October of 1.25.40 it predicts a 3.00.17 marathon. However, my times for 5k & 10k are quicker than on the list - confused !

6M steady d&d. Out the door at 5:45.

10/01/2013 at 06:29

Bike It - hope the calf is better.
Poacher - nice 12 miler quietly slipped in.
SD - good mlr.
FW - great HMP session.
Mennania - impressive stats.
SBD - the speed I'm doing my slow runs I'd need a whole day off work for a daytime LSR!
Moof - don't know how you can do an MLR at that time of night
FINgers - sounds sensible.
Ant - nice one, but d&d is so yesterday. Today's cliché is 'in the bag'.
8 steady miles @ 7:21 m/m in the bag. Disgracefully late start: oob @ 4:37, otd 4:55.

Nice one Gul/Ant, don't let those times slip any later.

Got up at 0345 today and toyed with the idea of a run. But the CNBA fairy said no.

10/01/2013 at 09:05

Don't give me that TR. I'm sure you must occassionally run to HR or pace. 

Well done on seeing sense Poacher, but what were you doing up at 3.45am anyway?

Thanks for the link SJ. Not as good as the old McMillian, but as KR says, this new McMillian one is rubbish.

Similar run to Gul for me - 8m, 1hr 1min, 7.35m/m 142bpm (75%) - otd 5.50. 

10/01/2013 at 09:17

My runs are logged, only 15M so far this week, good job I've spread them over 3 runs.

Keir - My HRM lives next to my turbo, never run to HR. I will indeed do some 3min reps, a few progressive 20s and some MPish efforts later on, but I dont run to pace, I try to run on feel and then see what the paces worked out at. Don't forget that no gadget means no exact data, so it's all a bit wet finger in the air. Just as I like it ! I get to find out MP after about 3M of VLM day.

10/01/2013 at 09:24

I don't want to know about your wet finger!

"But the CNBA fairy said no"   -  Say it ain't so, Poacher  !!!  

10/01/2013 at 12:16

Only toyed with it, had to go to work

10/01/2013 at 12:32

5 miles today in plus 9 min miles.

Waiting for the snow to hit.

Poacher - I realised that some days end at that time but do some start as well? Did you have to go to work at that time?

Scooby - similar running for me today. I have never run that slowly in my life. My legs feel really well recovered now though so there must be something in it!

TR - I hope to be able to run to feel again at some point but right now I'm enjoying the discipline of being told what to do by P&D and running at those speeds. Hopefully, once I work everything out and get used to what i'm doing I'll be less reliant on the book!

This is turning into  Monty Python sketch. Next thing you'll be saying is that you got up before you went to bed, walked 12 miles in bare feet on cobbled streets before doing a 25hr shift down the mine and then went for a 20 mile run. 

How come you got up at 3.45?

10/01/2013 at 13:24

All this talk of early morning running is making me tired.

Gul/Minni - Is there a competition for the earliest run that I don't know about?

Poacher - Disappointed that you would wake that early and not go out  

A grand total of 7 miles and one run for me so far this week hence the reason I declined to join the Jantastic team this year.  Hoping to get out tonight when I get home for a fast 5 miles but getting frustrated as not quite got my work/run/life balance sorted yet!!

10/01/2013 at 14:35

It is no fun getting up at that time but work demands. Finishing at 1600 though, hurrah. Not great preparation for Saturday's ultra. Maybe one day I will run at 0315 to see if Gul and Minni take the bait. Earliest ever run was 0200, but that was after work rather than before so doesn't count.

Martin you are probably still faster than many on stuff all training

As you were
