FRC.. I think I get what you are suggesting - stand on my head and do squats while eating inch worms? Right?  

But really, thanks for the advice - I will focus on the stretching and strength work. I know I have incredibly weak core muscles. I was given one of those fancy grid rollers for my birthday back in May too, must get it out!

I have a nice orange grid roller too. Sometimes I even use it. Used the green squidgy one at the gym yesterday. I ache today. But not from rollering. From the single leg squats. I think.

Frustrating that 10k results Still not up from Sunday. What's the matter with people?

Are we all ignoring the fact that FRC did a little ultra ?? Just the 9 hours ? #bonkers 

17/07/2013 at 07:26

I think I said well done on fb. All I could think about is that if he can do 42 in 9 then maybe I can do 40 in 9. We'll see. Last night I did 11 and nearly died in the heat.

Wow amazing .. You are all bonkers ....

doing 5 on Sunday ending in the Olympic stadium !!! Go me ...

That will be So much fun!

Look out for my friend and colleague Vicki Salmon. Will you be wearing a trademark tutu?

17/07/2013 at 18:43

Good idea Ikle ... May just do that ... X

Just run 5.5 miles, it's warm

Tutu would be good Susan. Is the Olympic thing on TV?

Not entirely sure how but legs are nearly recovered. I ran 5 miles yesterday. Went down to club planning a run walk shuffle and stretch recovery. Ended up doing the club pyramid speed session and running well without going flat out. I know trail is less impact on the legs but ???

Compression gear on within 10 mins finishing.. Walked 2 miles Sunday and Monday..Have also drunk lots of water.  strange.

Ikle every ultra is different. You can't compare the times. Feb one I did 45 miles in 8 hours, but lot less hills and cooler. I did take it easy the first 20-25 on Saturday with more hills and sunny. If I do Lyke again I'd be aiming to knock an hour+ off.

Main aim for anyone is just to finish. Time does not matter.

Walk the hills (3500ft in yours), run/ walk the rest.

Nearly recovered ... When was your 9 hour ultra ? last weekend ... Oh yes Clark I am sure your legs are back to normal .. What do you think Hen , scientifically ? They must be made of Kryponnite !!! Berlimey.... Speed session ... Oh yes .... Can someone please mark this page for a few weeks time when FRC comes on asking about mystery tiredness ... sorry is that out of order ? Just seems mental !!

Thanks, FRC. Good advice! I'm looking forward to it now. Really excited in fact. =) Zippee. Gee, I love the summer time.

Ha, Susan. I did post with lots of question marks on my "recovered" comment. I'm as surprised confused as you. VLM I was toast for 4-6 weeks after, wiped out. 

I did pair up with someone till 30 ish miles so took it very carefully so might be part of it.

Enjoy your Olympic run, anyone else racing?

I have a triathlon tomorrow. Off to camp tonight, taking a bottle of Pimms with me - not taking it at all serious. Hip is still sore, feeling like a granny. Hoping to take advantage of event massage therapists. 

FRC - Sorry, totally missed that you had done an ultra.. I think I read you had done a marathon, which sounded like an average weekend for you

3.5 miles late yesterday evening but still quite warm. That makes 13.5 miles for the week which is my highest weekly total this year!

20/07/2013 at 18:15

Acoops my hips are complaining lately too. Not sure what that's all about. Have hurt since gym Tues when I did loads of 1 leg squats. Maybe lots of racing too? And not enough actual 'working out' 

Did parkrun this morning in 24:37, which I was quite pleased with. Tired and needing to ahem go to the toilet. 

Have totalled 640 miles so far this year. Exciting! Am loving running at the mo. Well, loving all the stats anyway. =) 3 working days left!

Running in the Olympic Stadium was very very good fun. I see on Facebook Kay from this thread FLM 2007 was there too ! As we're Paula, Mel C and Victoria Pendleton all running!  I wore a red tutu ... Of course 

21/07/2013 at 22:57

Also Wabo was there and Russell / Eastham.   Did not see them, only onfacebook !

Sounds like super fun. Two colleagues/relatives of colleagues did it. 

I just ran 10 miles with Basey. Beautiful Beautiful run. Hadley Wood countryside, Potters Bar, Ridgeway, M25 roundabout! Enfield, finishing with a dark trek through Trent Park. Yum!
