Susan appears to have stolen Ikle's TOTP super power.

Ikle, you will be fine.
Oh, hadn't posted but Ikle is on our team for Thunder Run in July.
I want to see a DtF / Ikle race !
Or alternatively we just meet over beer/ tea and cake.

Wabo you are running great at the moment. Must be enjoying the difference, things easier? Is that 34-35 miles in 5 days? Phew.

Martin, good luck with Swansea, Saturday or Sunday for the ultra ?

Speed strength last night was tough, first time in 4 weeks... Lots of good stretching and exercises though, so always feel better after it. Doing Romanian Dead lifts last night, bit weaker on my left leg at moment so something to work on balance wise. Glute bridges too. Always work on any weakness someone said I think ?

Tempo run tonight for me, want to really hit some speed with club pals, 15k ish pace, so well under MP.

I'd love to do the Budapest mara with you all.   It's usually on J's bday w/e but now that he's 18, will be at uni etc, that doesn't matter.  Actually this year Chester mara is on 6 Oct and my sister's doing it.  Big brave step for her so I will be there to support. Anyone else doing it?

Just done 11 miles with 10 at MP.  Always a bit nerve wracking, this run, because it's the first at MP in the programme and it always seems tooooo hard.  It shouldnt' be soo hard, but is. Anyway, managed it. Wasn't comfy or easy but it's done.

Still can't quite believe Lanza.  I almost feel guilty so can't quite let myself enjoy the excitement. Feels a bit like eating heallthily for weeks then bingeing on cake.  But I think the break, sun etc will do me the world of good.

Gosh all of the 10 AH? Well done. How many should i attempt of tomorrow's 18? 8? Thought terrifies me...
21/02/2013 at 13:05

frc dont scare me surely not that many miles in 5 days? Oh I think you are right! This week will be a 40 mile week for me which is mad.  I just do feel really good at the moment, weight loss, doing more tai chi, Ithink its all helped!

AH Ihave to do MP on sunday, 7 miles I think, or maybe 8, oo er!

21/02/2013 at 13:08
Yes tis true that of which FRC speaks! It's going to be part of a section of my life entitled 'running life after a sub 4 mara'.
21/02/2013 at 13:15
You have done so well Wabo. Are doing, rather. I'm frustrated with my lack of weight loss. It's like I don't care enough to give myself the best chance (of a sub 4) Do you find that weight loss has speeded you up, Wabo?
21/02/2013 at 13:23
My last TRS was good today. Different person so I couldn't really say thanks... She said do Pilates and showed me some hamstring/glutes stretches. And I got my before and after vids! Exciting! I look like a different person! So much more upright and using my arms, which are straight! Woo hoo!
21/02/2013 at 13:24
I mean in line, not literally straight...
21/02/2013 at 13:43
Ikle really no need to do MP on long runs. Hence the slow bit. If you must, maybe the last 2. That works , fast finish but not needed. The MP or faster runs we are all doing are MLR medium midweek runs?

AH. Remember casa FRC is available if you want to stay over. Chester might do , not planned yet but certainly watching. Wabo ditto you if you still fancy the tunnel 10k run in June.

Pretty sure I'm much faster than I was a 17+ stone.
Every stone or half worth a minute per mile?
Feels like it sometimes.
21/02/2013 at 16:30
My god AH that's impressive, not sure I could do that but then I never am. Bracing myself for small joggette, first run since Brighton Sunday .. It's gone so horrid and cold again! Yuck ...

Budapest October .. Can't do this year .. Maybe 2014 ...?
21/02/2013 at 18:26
Just did 5 miles ... Last mile ... Quite fast ... Phew. Brings my mileage for the week to ... 5 miles ! Yay ... Go me .....
21/02/2013 at 19:05
Susan, you make me laugh!
21/02/2013 at 19:29

Me too .  Yes Ikle, as FRC says, you don't have to beast yourself on a long run.  They're hard enough.  Mine was a tempo run today.  I think because I haven't got a looooong run this weekend they give you a longer midweek run. And instead of making that longish midweek run a tough threshold/tempo session, you practice MP.  It was def too tough for my liking.  Still, lets hope the next few weeks make it a bit easier.  It's all hard at this stage. Fret not - we're all beginning to feel a bit knackered.

So glad your TRS before and after looks good! How exciting!  You've done such a good job.

frc sarurday. Its very cold and windy. I am. genuinely corncerned about finishing more about the weather than the distance. Have 5 layers f vest to thick jacket. Time target also changed to FINISH!

some of you are doing more miles a week than me. Amazing running but just out of intrest I will not admit that I was unhappy with my pb as so close to a better pen for C . speaking to on line coach I should not try again as its already time to start saving energu. Very surprised but just shows we should be running slower

typing on phone again! awful but think it makes sense
