For anyone trying to crack the 3h15 barrier anywhere in the world
Good to hear your progressing well after what must have been a frustrating 2012 on the running front Birch.
I've built a Lego lorry this morning after I walked into the corner of our wooden bed last night coming back from the loo. Rest day as I'm looking after the kids today whilst my wife is at work.
10miles at 8:16m/m yesterday and feeling I need new shoes. My current model is obsolete and I can't find any in my size so I'll have to get to Sweatshop at some point in the week and try a few pairs.
Mr unconventional here, though id drop in and bore everyone with a few stats, to compare with same time last year i had done 122 miles . I think my body has adapted to the higher milage ok with no injuries or niggles,hopefully sub 3.10 is still on the cards, roll on April 21st
Avg Speed:7.8 mph
Avg HR:152 bpm
Max Distance:19.07 mi
Hmm, tempo runs alone on tired legs are never great, are they? 11M incl. what was supposed to be 6 @ HMP, but seeing as the fastest mile was 6.37m/m and the slowest was 6.48m/m (!) I think it was really closer to MP. Breathing was fine, but the legs just didn't want to know...
Just a 4-mile loosener for me this morning @ 7:12mm, before going off to the gym. The hailstorm was brutal, and unrelenting. At one point, the stones were so big they actually hurt. No, really.
I'm trying to concentrate on the idea of going into key sessions (tempo, reps, LSR) with the legs as rested as possible, so am doing not all that much the day before. 20M tomorrow, then.
Nice one Lorenzo - for both run and rugby
Nice Stats Carbloader
I managed 213 miles for Jan, so a good solid start.
Been a busy week and its not finished yet as have a night shift tonight, followed by a 10m race tomorrow
13m this morning inc a slow parkrun 8:15mm ave for the whole run...
GE - As the man said in the legendary joke, "I would if I could, but I can't." Enjoy the nice weather - you never know when (if) you'll see some again.
Moof - I'm a bit partickler about these things, but if that was me, that dog would've ended up in the canal, swiftly followed by its owner - with a boot-print on its a*se (the dog and the owner). Well, a Saucony-Triumph-9-print, anyway.
Great miles bagged by Jools, RFJ (a night shift then a 10M race? Good luck!!), Lorenzo and The Eagle.
Bike It - I can tell almost immediately when I need new shoes, even without mileage stats. Knees and soles of feet aching, more tired than usual etc.. Thank God for Wiggle.co.uk - a new pair arrived this morning.
Nice miles being recorded. Some dog owners can be total k***s.
4m for me this morning. Not pretty, fitness is so hard to gain but so easy to lose. Is it really 11 weeks to the big one? Anyone fancy a 3.30 train?
A good weekend for long runs I see, and a bad weekend for dogs.
Bike ride for me, turned out to be 63 miles, but hanging off the back of group 1. I think that we call that a lactate threshold session.
Two hours after I got home, it was back out again, for club level cross country. 5 miles of energy sapping mud. Only thing was that I didn't have a lot of spare energy. 4 laps and I wanted to stop after 3. Shall we say that I didn't come last. It was close though.
Birch - good to know things are looking up.Ant - good tempo run. How was the hailstorm? That good, eh?AR - that's a very fast 18 miler! I take a cold shower, but never tried an ice-bath.FINgers - good running, especially into the wind.GE - I was asleep before you got home! Good long run.KR - most weeks I have a 12 miler planned. Not surprised you struggled with the reps after a heavy meal!Mennania - good speed session. I would certainly call 5am first thing! I'm usually out of the house within 15 mins of getting up.LR - well done on the 16 with 10 @ MP - that's a tough session.Jools - glad the massage has done some good. That's a good tempo run on tired legs!FW - Margaret Thatcher? I might just take up Poacher's suggestion!Poacher - good to hear you're back safely.OO - hope the hip is OK. Take is easy.Minni - we had a bit of sleet/hail/snow first thing yesterday morning, but it didn't settle, thankfully. Good long run!Blisters - good news on the calf. And well done on getting 2 sessions in yesterday - they all count.BikeIt - I've walked into the corner of the bed before - very painful. Hope you haven't done any damage.CL - good stats! (Not boring).Lorenzo - see any more cyclists going up Box Hill? How was the rugby? (haven't heard the score yet. But just heard who won, thanks Minni!)RFJ - great mileage.Moof - hope the leg is OK.Good day for me yesterday. 3 miles at 5am in the lovely weather. Than a really interesting few hours at the Harry Potter studios. Out very early this morning, for an 8 mile tempo run @ 6:53 m/m. Now going back to bed zzzzzzzzzz......
Gul - Might I ask why you go so early? Especially if you then go back to bed? Just my curious nature.
Frazer - Never mind Yaktrax, it sounds like someone should invent a sort of skate-like attachment to trainers for use in the weather you've got.
Blisters - Good work ethic on display there.
