haha one of my clubmate ran 17mins for santa run, the costume was ripped apart
Hope you're feeling better soon Ikle - best to to get it out of the way before Xmas though
Dave - I would say your 10k time is not too shabby at all - who needs to pace themselves?
Fantastic PB time for PR Susan -you've still got it at your age - Hahaha you know I love you really.
I did a 10 mile road race yesterday - went from 1.24.51 to a new PB of 1.18.56 - absolutely delighted! Two nasty hills at 5 and 8.5 miles but I just thought of the cake and the end and kept going - hoping I can get a half marathon pb next year - maybe??
Well done, WT. Super!
I will leave the super six to you Ikle. I can train myself and listen to all the advice you get, I have enough books to read on marathon training or so I am told!!!
Had a busy weekend and got out Sunday am in the pouring rain and strong wind blowing into my face all the way our for 7 miles before I turned and ran back another 7 managed to keep going, though wanted to stop all the time, think the glass of red wine, which is rather a rarity for me on Friday night was in my legs. Anyway managed 14 miles in 1.58 which was too quick really, but hey done, so happy. Having a rest day today as the legs a touch sore. Happy new week to all keep running........
End of my week of no running at doctor's request today. [Just confirming that condition is not running related/affected.] Really looking forward to running again tomorrow morning.
Having run only once in December so far - and only done about 50 miles per month in October and November having done 70 in August and 85 in September - I'm going to start gently and increase the distance gradually over a series of easy runs before adding any speedwork or attempting parkrun PB. Probably increase by a km per run from whatever I run tomorrow. Will just run as I feel tomorrow, erring on the side of caution.
Nice 10 mile PB WT, 10 mile is the one distance (that I'm interested in) that I've yet to set a time at. (Well yes, and marathon, but I'll get there!)
I think Edgar.
Still a little Sickle. But mainly betterer. Going into school this afternoon was a mistake, though. Way too stressful. Really wanted to go for a run this evening, but obviously too silly if unwell. Boo.
Re: marathon training, it's 5 times a week, not 4 and is called the Improver's programme. Although technically I don't run enough mileage weekly to qualify. But I'm sorry; I'm NOT doing the 'beginners' one because that would just be silly.
Have 10K race on Wednesday and haven't run since last Thurs. Hmmm...
If still sad poorly Sickle, then doing the race likely a bad idea? I know granny suck eggs, but has to be said. As for programmes, I only ran 3 times a week for spring sub 3:30, so number of days you run really doesn't mean anything, just have to be consistent. If you get picked for Forum 6 you'll be getting coached by someone anyway, and maybe sessions sent to you weekly as your fitness changes. mcs can join the thread too and get some coaching off your Jedi Master whoever it is.
As for names, Larry, Angus and Raymond now in running...
Ikle - sure you will be fine. I had had a dodgy hamstring for two weeks and only ran 3 miles and then did a PB - sometimes rest is good for you
FRC - thanks for the prediction of my half marathon time but considering I have done three faster than 1.50 before I hope I would be quicker on the next one. I'm not sure quite how insulted to be that you think it will take me 33 minutes to do an extra 3 miles on top of my 10 mile time?
Skated in to work in my Inov8s as the ground is very slippy here today, took the cross country route to work to avoid the hard surfaces. Cold out there too. Time for a coffee me thinks. My half pb came on top of a steady year of training and one road race at Coniston in March and then a fell race and then the PB at GNR after not doing too much high mileage more shorter runs. Run about 1300 plus miles this year. Sometimes less is more according to some of the books and schedules I have read. Have a good 10K Ikle.......I had a dodgey hamstring six weeks before the VLM in 2010 and managed to get round okay, though not a great time. But if its bad dont run on it, long term damage not worth it.
