Slow, steady but determined.
Evening all I did my back in at the weekend and I'm not allowed to run until Saturday Very hard as I have had new shoes delivered lol!
Think Tracey was saying that she is going to Brighton Saturday
Going to do a parkrun on Saturday I think
I was thinking of doing a parkrun near me tomorrow, never done one before so suppose I need to check out what I do. Does mean being up and down there ready before 09:00
Just been to a different Step & Tone at the gym - crumbs was it hard work having to have a cuppa to recover before I go for my shower!
Same here TS, thinking of trying out my local parkrun tomorrow for the first time
ooh - shall we run 'virtually' or whatever it is!!??
Hope the parkruns go well! There isn't one close enough for mew to make it at the moment!
I managed a 9 mile run this morning, 1hr41mins, slow I know but included some hills so not too bad for me! I have been struggling with the heat and some niggles, but trying to slowly increase get the mileage now
Have a lovely weekend everyone
Did my Parkrun yesterday, was good and well organised, great that you can just go along
My result came through at 28:23 which I'm sure was short, I timed at 29:19 so can't see where the minute went!! However, I'll accept their time
You're 2 miles further into your long runs than me MWW so well done! I don't mind hills really but they can get you and really slow you down can't they? There was a very slight incline at the Parkrun, quite noticeable on the 3rd lap!
Did you do yours Cinders?
Oh and by the way, so many bits of my body were aching from my Step & Tone class, didn't make any difference to my run, in fact it may have done me good and loosened at all up. Will do the same class next week and hopefully not be as achey!
I did 33.18 yesterday which is a post-Ted pb for me I dream of doing sub 30 lol
Well done TS
Well done Roobs xx
Won't be starting running for the next couple of weeks, but have got Benson the Beagle so lots of long walks which will be useful as a warm up for the running that I MUST get my @r$e into. You never know, I might just be able to get him to run along side me after a few days, but at the moment he zigzags too much when I run with him and always puts the lead into his mouth when he's running on the lead so not condusive to running at all. Need to get him trained to run in a straight line and leave the lead alone!
Didnt make the parkrun, Thomas gave us a rare lie in so we overslept! Never mind, did do a 6 mile run/walk yesterday
Well done Roobs
How do you train a doggie to run in a straight line?
Err, not sure about that one Cinders. I'll let you know if I find out
Lol, could try it out on Thomas too
Oh, you've got one of those too have you. My grandson Jesse was a nightmare when he was little - walked twice as far as anyone else when we went on a family holiday to Florida because he zigzagged everywhere!
Only a little bit, but it was good. Don't know how far it was either.
Brought Benson an extendable lead today becasue the little devil kept running off and not coming back so got the new lead so he can still have a good old sniff around but not get away from me. Much more relaxed walking with him today.
Walked along the cliff top to St Dunstan's, about a mile and a half, then down the steps to the undercliff. As we were walking along there I thought I'd try running with him. Not exactly dressed for it, jeans and jacket and my "every day" trainers are not the best running ones, but we had a good run. Probably covered about a mile in total in beteen the odd sniff. Benson enjoyed it too, ears flapping in the wind
So from now on al dog walking will be done wearing running gear and I can run or walk as much as I feel like. Not going to wear my Garmin just yet, just get myself going gradually, so that my the time he goes home I'm ready to get down to it properly
I did a 16m very slow long run on Saturday and I still have DOMS! lol
Roobs - tennis with Andre help with my Seven Sister DOMS.
Quiet on here!
Robs - well done on 16 miles...a very long time since I went that far! Hope the DOMS is easing?
Tracey - I like your remedy for DOMS!
I have been trying to build up my mileage, did a 10 mile LSR last weekend, and trying to do at least 2 runs of4- 5 miles in the week with some tempo/speed! Struggling a bit, still fining I can't do speed and have to walk quite a bit, but will persevere. Might have to miss a long run this week as have family commitments and can't seems to find a way round it!
Any races planned for the Bank holiday weekend?
I'm the opposite MWW! Speed is OK at the mo but can't seem to get the distances in! My own fault though
Hello - can I join please. I am desperately trying to complete a marathon in sub 5 hours in October. It will be my first and will be a case of pushing my mental block that keeps saying stop. I am sure I can run faster than I am but not too sure how, so I am going to meet a nice man who can hopefully tell me what I am doing wrong and give me some advice to stop jogging and start running.
For a start, in reality there is no difference between jogging and running, I think there is a rule something about feet off the ground etc etc. Jogging is perfectly acceptable, my first running club was Portsmouth Joggers and some of them were anything but joggers!!
What is your current pace per mile and how far are you up to?
We have all done marathons on this thread, some a couple of some of us a few more so you're in the right place! I haven't done one in years now and am entered for a half marathon in Oct so am working ym way back towards that distance. As I said earlier, I really have to get my ass in gear and get some miles done!
I agree about the jogging and running, but sometime I feel like I am going fast and other times not so much.
I am upto 13miles, but at a pace of about 11:30 /12:00 i guess. Not sure how much further I can keep that pace as I extend the distance.
