Yasso 800s are great for training regardless of whether you use them for marathon purposes. But as AH says getting up to 10 reps on a club night could prove challenging.
Signed up for Jantastic eventually (kept putting it off and actually thought I was too late) Opted for the 5 x run per week in January which is already a challenge with being away (in sunny Mexico City in case you didn't know ) Hopefully my hosts will know some good (and safe ) routes in the city.
So far run 37 quality miles this month - including 12 in the new DS9 Racers (I love 'em) and my not-so-secret target 1250 for 2013 is on course...
Still thinking about Bullock Smithy (as if the mere mention of it will rouse WT back to forum) - what do you think? Doable, stupid, ambitious - all of these?
Dave of COURSE you should do the BS. So you're actually IN Mehico? Goodbye.
Susan - is your weekend away at a secret location? How exciting.
Is it only me that gets a bit nervous the night before a long run?
Dave might consider BS
Lou- No but what I see as a long run has changed.
Bit of a eye opener today and interested to see what others think. In 2010 my 10 miler mid week was a key part of my Comrades training. Today I have run one of my quickest 10 milers ever but included 1KM at 9.45 pace!!!!! (all runs in KM now) The slow one was because I was walking most of it as it up a hill. At the top heart rate had dropped so was ready to run hard again. I have always tried to run all of a matathons and yes my best 2 involved running it all but maybe there is something in run/walk from the start.? (time 1.20) today so going to use it in Gloucester and see
Wabo - enjoy Peru!!
Not sure I can add to the very technical Yasso discussion so won't even try. Spending day plodding through my Corporation tax return and my personal tax return...my head hurts and I am easily distracted...had about 10 cups of tea this morning...must focus.
Running wise it is all very crap...doing plodding runs trying to get back some mojo but not really working. I may need a new hobby like golf or fishing or darts.
Got a half marathon scheduled in a few weeks and my longest run this year has been about 6 miles so it may be a very slow and painful journey!!
Susan - enjoy your secret trip (once you get a passport!). Please can you give us a full report on one of your track sessions soon!
I like the name "Bullock Smithy" sounds real hard (which it is). I don't like the name so much that I would name one of my children it but maybe a cat or a dog! I think I may be putting off the inevitable tax return by talking rubbish so off to the paper work .....oh its nearly lunch time!!
Oh and on the running side injured my calf on Tuesday doing mile reps with club...will try running on it tonight but know deep down that it won't be better.
..make that 11 cups of tea!
You ARE bored, UmB.
WT your drunk road shoe race sounds a bit like my swim on Sunday - although I did feel a bit better after it.
Well, 14 miles done. Very slow - 2.28 but I didn't die or anything. I drove miles to the start of the Basingstoke Canal towpath, so keen am I to get in some long miles without scaring myself with all the hills round here. Obv had to do out and back but it was nice to be in a new area. Still managed to get v. muddy.
12 ..and yes I am...14 miles is very impressive.
Yes it is
9 miles at 11 min mile pace and got a half marathon a week on Sunday Arghh.
