Hi Emsi. Good luck with your Tri 's !!
Hi anyone who is about, I have had this horrid cough that's been going around, but seems to be at last getting better. Running tomorrow trying to get back on course with my running plan...... so annoying . Happy New Year to everyone and good luck with your triatholons.... great to hear from you
Kafeeg I know what you mean, I hate to admit it but I don't have the same motivation as I did last year. I am hoping that as my training progresses I will feel better. At the moment it feels I am so far behind everyone with their long runs... have almost gone back to square one again.... ah well plenty of time.
Kiwi I wrote some of my thoughts and fears a while back for you don't know if they were anygood or just my general ramblings !
Black and Tabby yesssssssssssssss that's what I think, I felt that I didn't run as best as I was capable of last year I know I was injured, but was disappointed, so have this opportunity to do it again. But just worried that am already behind on my plan... but I know plenty of time yet .... I am stubborn and will do it better this year. Not taurus star sign by any chance are you ?? And maybe be we should try a duathlon running and cycling ...... I am scared of water all that splashing around is not for me
Morning Pip! No I'm not Taurus, just stubborn about this running lark. And funnily enough for my lack of swimming abilty, I'm a Pisces! Husband would be delighted if I did more cycling (he loves cycling) but I'm not fussed about it. TYou have to go a long way and spend a long time in the saddle to make it worthwhile.
Oh bad news Pip - I seem to have inherited your stinky trainers Hadn't really noticed it until I had to dry them out in the little ensuite bathroon at my in-laws house last week. Pooooh!
And you're not behind are you??? I know I only started my plan last year on 2nd January? I'm trying to follow an 18 week plan this time - anything to give me a bit more of a steady build up - but if I keep on chopping and changing runs around like I have been doing I don't think its gong to work. Roll on Tuesday when kids go back to school and I can get back to normal!
Hi Black and Tabby
my plan started on Dec 24th but I missed last week but just had a look and I think supposed to have done 7 miles last Sunday and supposed to do 5 this Sunday, so maybe should do 7 instead this Sunday ???? Kiwi where are you starting to panic and only just started training again eeeek is there any hope for me ???
to pongy trainers especially in someone elses house phewey
Pip - split the difference and do 6??! If you've not run for a while (cos I know you've been ill) I would do 5 or 6 - think of it as easing yourself back in. If you do do 7, take it really slowly. Even walk the last mile or so, no point in injuring yourself / exhausting yourself right at the start.
I missed my long run last week with Christmas / going away, but managed a few short runs just to keep my legs ticking over. I must try and fit a long run in this week - either by getting rid of son for a few hours tomorrow, or arguing with Mr B&T at the weekend (he wants to fit in a long bike ride as well).
Ah well - I'm sure we'll get there!
emsi that would be brilliant...... hmmm just all need to live close to each other.
Black and Tabby sounds like a good plan. Did just over 4 miles last night and actually overtook a young woman running ahead of me. Must admit was determined i was going to pass her. Well she did pass me as I was doing up my shoelaces. Thought to myself 'hmmm not going to let you do that to me mrs !!' and do you know at that point I suddenly got my guttsiness and determination back and hate to say it but suddenly became very competative again !!! felt blooming great !! So 3 miles for me tonight. London Marathon i am coming to get you ......... hopefully !
Good attitude PIp. Keep it up.
Black and Tabby, bigeater helloooooooooooooooooo oh for goodness sake started running again last week after my coughing episode then..... wait for it went on my 6 mile run on Sunday, did the first 3 miles no problem then owwwwwwwwwwwwchhhhhhh ! shooting pain by my hip down my leg.....think I have for some reason sciatica absolutely no idea what I did to get it... thought you only had it if you were about 80 !!!! been reasured by a friend of mine who is not 80 and has had it as well, that it should go as quickly as it appeared !!! anyway ended up walking the rest of the way home !!!!! well 6 miles done anyway.
Eeeeeeeeeeeeek what next ?? So hopefully will get running again soon,getting slightly worried about the lack of mileage that I have done so far.
Bigeater glad you are feeling better, what plan did you decide to follow, and B&T hope you are feeling better........can't believe we are putting ourselves through this again ........eeeek exciting isn't it
Hooray! Completed a full week's training at last! Long run of 10 miles this morning - was surprisingly sunny and had to abandon my lovely new jacket after 2 miles because I was too warm!
Kiwi - can I ask you a question? I haven't entered a HM as part of my training this time, is it worth it as part of my training? I've done lots of races now, so its not like I've never experienced a race before. If it is worth it, I've seen a HM now on 3/3 that looks good (in the New Forest) and I might enter it. However I'd need to rearrange my training as my plan has me doing a LSR of 18M that week. Can you help me decide how to rearrange my LSRs to accomodate it? Thank you!
Pip - how're you now?
Bigeater - how long is your run on Sunday? Hope its not disrupted by the snow!!
Kaffeeg - how you feeling now? And how's your running going?
