It's always fun sorting out the next year's races & training.
Good Luck Kaz,
Jason, love the photo and the medal.Enjoy the planning
Teknik, Nice one !! realy looking forward to your race report next weekend!!!
Stuart, congrats on an excellent PArkrun time. Well done !!
Enjoy the LSR JayC !!
Went to see Greg Davies on friday night. A good night of comedy !. 40 Miles for the week so none to shabby. A cut back this week I feel is in order and then push on through November !!!
Tek - Nice running. Good luck next week!
AGF - Good running.
3 mile slow run to the gym, then some weights. Lower body stuff, so expect to be sore tomorrow.
I'll go out for a long run tomorrow, 10-12 miles I think.
Tek- nice running, muscles
AGF- nice mileage
The recovery continues here- left glute still a bit tight, but managed 12.01m in the sun this morning in a steady 1.24.06 splits: 7:22 7:28 7:15 7:09 7:07 7:05 7:06 6:45 6:47 6:45 6:40 6:35 2 Off to do some more stretches now Hopeful that it will have loosened off by Saturday- ready for me to inflict untold damage from a severe hill bashing....
Well done guys.
Tek - are you saying you stick to the lowest %'s for P&D? So for marathon pace you go for 79% max if they specify 79-88% ? I guess if you up miles significantly that would be sensible.
And what's your strategy going to be next weekend, have you decided yet ?
I've managed 41M this week and have come out of it feeling pretty fresh. Did struggle in mid week a bit as i couldn't drag my arse out of bed to run mornings and ended up doing 3 evenings. Evenings i definitely find physically harder which shows in my HR stats and probably mentally harder as well.
HM hope you're over the jab now
AGF good week
Stuart well done...hope the run goes well tomorrow
jason nice splits
mace - I stick to the low end for training (and I think the recovery % is a typo - I do sub70%max for those). For the race I'm hoping to stick to sub80% for the first half, hoping I won't drift above 90% until after mile 20, but the HR will be on page 2 so I won't look at it much. I'll definitely be ignoring it for the last 10k...still not made my mind up but I think I'm going off at 8.35 pace (but I've printed off 5 different pace straps already...)
Tek - don't want to tempt fate but i reckon 8:35 will be comfortable for you. Would love to be there at the finish line to buy you a beer ... maybe if you do Brighton
Yes, i reckon you're tight and 76% must be a typo.
I've just "found" an extra mile, so i did 42 last week, not 41
...another good reason for doing Brighton then
of course i meant you're "right" not "tight"
I'm fine. I'm really glad I had a very lazy day today.
Done a bit of stalking on results, no idea if kaz had a target but .
Great photo jason.
A bit of a non starter for me this weekend, back hurt to breathe on Friday so rest Friday and Saturday. Did 6 miles today easy. Will get back to it next week. Achilles/heel felt fine when running but can feel it now, think it's just one of these things and not run related.
Nice build up AGF and mace, this was meant to be a 40 for me but ended up 28! Not to worry... got a whole 26 weeks (today!)
Good to get the cross trainng in Stuart.
Really on the countdown now Teknik!
Good to hear you're on the mend HM4.
Sounds like a mixed weekend for you & thanks.
Amsterdam results on
