I could never do cold baths either! it was cold enough on the run with the thermometer at the start saying -0°C!!!!
and speaking of other people's long runs - even with a shower and 90 minute drive from the race, we still got back to Lincoln as clubmates were finishing their 18 mile runs. Hmmm!
well done Jim!
The thought of a cold bath.. nah.. I'm a wuss! I'm a convert to skins though!
steady paced recovery run last night, 9.6 miles at 9:35 pace. Ha ha! Still windy, but now we have settled snow again, so fun sprints tonight methinks!
Can someone please give me a kick after work this eve.. I need to go for a run and I'm really not feeling it...!!
Some good runs this weekend.
Well done Jim you little speedster!
My 15 miler was 15 minutes slower than last weekend 'cos of the cold, biting wind which affected my breathing. Still, it's all time on feet I did 1/2 my usual intervals today without incident which is an improvement on last week. Oh and I seem to have got myself a place in VLM even though I said I wasn't going to do it this year. As it's the week after Brighton I shall be treating it as a purely fun day out and will be doing my knitting again
Jenf, get out the door for a run after work please, OR ELSE! (I don't know what, but just OR ELSE!!!)
JENF, RUN! I'm out for sprints in the snow...!
just in case you didn't hear me, Jenf,
Thank you all for the encouragement LOL as I was driving home I was telling myself if nobody had been on the thread then I wouldn't have to run! how come you all chose this afternoon to post!!! ? Anyway, I'm glad I got out there, so thank you.
if I had to run a set of hills in pi55ing sleet and gales there's no way I'm letting you lot pootle home in heated cars to sit around watching tv all evening!
Well done for beating the gremlins Jenf, glad we were able to help!
i seem like a ninja forum poster this year.... in... post.... out.... not to be seen for a couple of weeks,,,
My running has, in the last few weeks, been sporadic to say the least... but i have just accepted i will run when i can and not worry too much... but on a positive note, 10k in 51 on friday... i set out for a plod and smashed the last mile under 7 mins... so must be keeping the fitness up. Ran a naughty little 13.2 miles on monday night after work and going out for a little 10k ce soir! I am now, after some years understanding that it's all about time on your feet... so if i only have 20 mins, that's 2 miles and 2 miles more than i would have done had i not gone out..
not really following a program this year... tried, but failed... i think as long as i can churn out a 20/21 by first/second week in March, i will be good for brighton...
Red.... what's going on with your breathing then? how'd you get on at the asthma clinic? I had fisherman's friend the other night before my run (easy on the jokes) and my lungs just opened up when i stepped outside... admitedly i have been struggling this year with my chest too...
Welcome back 'sham Plodder. Glad to hear you're doing OK and the concept of a mile in under 7 is quite alien to me! At the asthma clinic they just told me to up my dosage if my peak flow dropped. Perhaps I'd better have a Fisherman's friend too as my asthma has been a right pain in the cold weather
Having moaned about asthma, it was warmer today when I did my run and I had a comfortable progression run of 5 miles so am feeling happy again However, there's a bitter wind whipping up now and we've had some sleet so I might be complaining again tomorrow
Hey Sham plodder, you may have to change your name if you can knock out a 10k in 51, good running!
No snow down here, but we've a v strong biting wind! I really struggle in the wind, I nearly got lifted off my feet when I was running with it behind me! Apparently someones dog got blown over into the harbour!! I'm keeping away from the edge
well done Sham, and good to see an improvement's on the way, Redhead!
welcome Andrew! are you doing any pre-VLM races?
