Tek - the good thing is you've plenty of time to get the cold out of the way before Frankfurt hope it's not hindering your training too much.
Stuart - i'm tempted to take a bit more time off myself as my achilles is still a bit tight but after only doing 8M last week i'm reluctant.
I got this tightness after introducing sub LT runs in HADD training and easy running saw it off, so it kind of fits that i've got it again after a race.
Perhaps a slow 3M tester tonight
Tek - Well done. How many weeks til your marathon now?
Mace - I know how you feel, I only went out yesterday as I hadn't done any running all week. Probably better to rest it up for a few more days.
Stuart - you're absolutely right, that's the sensible thing to do .....
Thanks mace. Ice and stretch, and take it easy until it's gone...
Stuart - 3 weeks to go...just started tapering - so I've a non-running day this week, the first since 11 June
mace- definitely don't push it- the main thing is to get to the start line....
Tek- Sure that you will shake the cold off-better now than earlier or later tbh. I'd still keep going if it's above the neck and no temperature...
No running for me today- not much this week in fact- just a couple of slow and short recovery runs (except for a slow 16 on Sunday). Next week is all easy too- then it's taper week
Amazing PB jason, well done! Loved the report and a medal too, a perfect day out!
Work today but have the rest of the week off, the longest off work since Amsterdam last Oct Nice forecast tomorrow so I'll get out for a run in the morning.
Hope all those hovvering around the bench stay off it and Tek hope that cold of yours goes soon...better now than 3 weeks time tho'.
Jason - brilliant race and a superb time and PB. In the words of Bill and Ted, "Excellent" [guitar riff]
Tek - no, ended up DIYing myself out, so didn't get out at all on the weekend. N'er mind, will make up for it this week and have Studland Stampede to look forward to next Sunday.
Mace - as Jason says don't push things. Do some cycling or cross training if you're going a bit stir-crazy...
Fiona - Enjoy your morning run!
Fast** 3.5 miles for me today, avg. 6:48/mile.
** note, this is fast for me, close on my 5K pace, but nothing when compared to Jason's marathon pace!
Enjoy your time off.
jayc - that's plenty fast, jason's just a beast
I know you are all right, i guess i just need to be told .... i've done 6 months or so of HADD stuff and an extra few days to shake this off is nothing compared to what i could lose if i push it, so thanks for the replies and i will be sensible.
Iced for about 20 mins last night and another 20 mins this morning. Plenty of gentle stretching as well. I can feel it's much looser today, defo not as tight as it has been
But i'm like a caged CHEETAH
Hello all....might join you lot on here. Next marathon for me is VLM next spring and feeling a bit homeless as no single VLM thread. I know a few of you on here already (Jason, GazOC).
Brief history - running about 6 years, getting more and more into it. PB for 10k is 38.37, half is 1hr27.33, and marathon 2.58.54 (this Sunday at Chester - very pleased with myself - enjoy bragging about it!). I don't race that often, not a member of a club, run solo, live in Manchester.
That's good news .
Good luck with the training.
15West - another fast one to contend with! Well done on your result at Chester.
Mace - glad to hear recovery is well underway.
AGF - totally agree; was up in London for the Olympics and while I like the tube, I don't like the "need" of constant rushing from most inhabitants. And you're right, you see very few conversations being struck.
4.6 mile off road hill repeats today, getting back in to the usual routine after the training plan for NFM. Missed the HRs too, I love trail running
15West- welcome aboard
Not sure about fast at the moment: first post Chester run tonight- 4.15m - even came close to running a sub 9 minute mile at one stage Lots of stretching reluctant hamstrings afterwards
Fiona - thanks - still snivelling...hope you're enjoying the week off
jay nice tempo and well done today on the hills
HM and AGF - Hi
mace well done for being sensible
15West welcome and congrats on Chester !
Gaz - hope you're ok
jason thanks & well done on the recovery run
Weird feeling. No run today, breaking a 4 month streak. 15 mins on the rower instead
Something has finally slowed you down jason! You'll soon be flying again.
Nice speed jaycm.
Hope the recovery continues mace - you are doing the right thing.
Teknik your body will thank you for the rest/change! 4 months is a long time.
10 miles in the sun today only 5 degrees but beautiful. Might see if I can get onto the track tomorrow. Holidays are great, we'd all be amazing runners if we could just run and rest and run!
No running for me at moment - got the worst case of DOMS that I've had for a while. It was funny that after the notorious Manchester marathon I didn't really ache much at all...thinking it may have been something to do with the freezing temperatures,...?!
AGF - going back to your musings on London, have you seen this news item. The top window sticker made me laugh
Fiona - nice run. We haven't seen any sun at all this week, drizzly rain and cloud is all we've got down south!
J D, and N P:
Injury F**ked me. Wished I was still here. Serious thread this one,
Keep on running.
