Lots going on!
The road to recovery here is slow but a can see a very dim light at the end of that tunnel!
I am only running a couple of times a week, if I am up to it. I have just done Sundays planned 7 miles today as my children are taking part in the Rememberance Day Parade on Sunday.(Eldest has been given the privelage of carrying the flag for the Girl Guides) Nice and easy and all ok, apart from my old back injury being a bit 'nippy'. No problems with the other issues so hopefully things are settling down.
All the races have been done for the year. Next year I'm back to my usual races (2.5 miles in May, 5 miles in June, 5k September and club championships 10k in October)
7.00 miles tonight, with 5x 0.52 miles @ 6.25,6.25,6.24,6.20,6.17 ave. 2 minutes of (very) slow jogging between. I'm not paying to use a track so I just ran between 2 lamppost down a flat straight cycle path, hence the 0.52 miles thing... Wasn't as bad I expected it to be.
I've had a bit of a think the past few days, and have decided I'm going to to spend the 1st half of the year doing the shorter stuff before doing Loch Ness in September again.
6.76 miles tonightStill no concrete plans for next year
SM6 Kaz keeping the running going through the dark days ...
Thanks NP, that makes sense. Every time before I've tried doubles I got injured as I jst threw in extra runs. This time I'll build the miles, split the runs then build again. Enjoy London.
Good to see you getting out again kaz.
Nice reps Stuart.
OH/kaz you'll be even darker than here in Inverness
6 miles easy tonight on the TM. Was to be reps but tired so thought 6 miles easy better than no miles.
HM hope you're better
F nice treddie sessions yesterday and today. I think I've now got a permanent scar from the HRM...
NP nice 6m. Hope you enjoy the jog around London tomorrow...might see you on the telly on Sunday, then?
Kaz glad you're on the road to recovery...hope the kids enjoy the Parade
Stuart good interval session
OH well done on the 6.76m yesterday
Short 5m recovery for me. Knee a little better. Think I'll start my new streak now...
OH - Does it actually get light during the winter for you! Given that I work constant nights, I see next to no daylight during the week anyway.
Fiona - Nice run
Tek - Hope the knee is ok
Gym today, just done some weights. Planned to do a short run on the treadmill, but legs are a wee bit sore, so didn't bother.
7 w/parkrun, 4 and 12-13 planned for the weekend
SM6 In midwinter it gets light about 10, dark again at 3pm. On an overcast day it never really gets light. Dark when you go to work, dark when you come home.... but in summer, you can continue outdoor activities until gone 11pm quite happilyor if you are Kaz, start running at 4am in daylight
My voice is coming back and I managed 90 mins on the phones today. I'm so pleased I'm not working tomorrow.
Well done on everyones training.
Tek, Just got around to watching your video. Nice One. You certainly were looking strong there. A lot of folk around - must have been lots of dodging folk all the way around?
Like the Pic too NP. Enjoy your time in London at the weekend.
Well done on everyone elses training too...people all seem happy enough at the moment and planning for next year.
Things are good here. Looking forward to the weekend. Running, Football, Beer and Food. Happy Days ( I am a simple man )
Back to the hospital today gor a nice new blue cast on still got to go back next week not sure if they will pin it or not.... Went out the door for my hill run at 5pm as I fly to London tomorrow So Teknik look out for the Fire Officer with the blue cast.
SM6 Nice interval session.
OH nice running.
Teknik glad the knees getting better.
Fiona agree 6 is better than 0
Enjoy the weekend.
OH - must be light before 4 in the summer? I was up at Fort William in June, and it was (what I'd call) light by the time I woke up at half 3. And you must be nearly a couple of hundred miles north of that. Depends on your definition of light, I suppose...
HM - Hope you're feeling better
AGF - Sounds like a cracking weekend Enjoy!
NP - Hope you enjoy London!
7.5 miles w/20.44 parkrun this morning. Shiny new PB to start the day
I keep reading that the benefits of interval training won't kick in for a few weeks. Which I guess could be true, but the mental boost of being reminded that I can actually run faster than I think seems to help me straight off the bat.
Gym later on still to come.
SM - Congrats on the shiny new PB
As for daylight, it usually is 'light' here, where you can see all night towards the end of June beginning of July, but it is proper daylight at about 3.30-3.45am. The best time of the day!!! Especially if there is low lying mist/haze, it makes for lovely early morning running
OH blimey, hope you don't suffer from SAD
HM enjoy the day off
NP I'll look out for you!
AGF thanks - it was less packed than it looks, although the 50m section leading inside was a bit cramped. Enjoy your week-end! (All men are simple)
Stuart great PB. Well done fella!!
Kaz...running at 3.45am?
6.5m with the club this morning...all ok here
Yip TEK, I love early morning running, plus it frees up my evenings for dog walking and gardening.
I did tomorrows planned 7 miles this morning just as the sun was rising. Lovely views from the top of the hill out towards Hoy, although very guttery as I couldn't see where I was going!! I must get a new head light that actually gives me some light!!! The one I have is just plain useless. If anyone has any suggestions??
Kaz "guttery" - suspect I'm the only one who recognises that term on this threadI hate running with a head light - I prefer to let my eyes get used to the available light - although often hampered by headlights on passing cars.Agree the early morning light is often lovely but I've yet to get up to run in it!
SM6 - congrats on new PB
Good news is I'm getting there. My voice is much stronger & I've now got a cough which is completely usual for me. Will just have to see how long this will last.
Well done on everyone's training.
Have a look on Amazon at the reviews. That should give you some idea.
Kaz well done on y'day's 7m
OH you're right - can't even google "guttery"
NP well done on the run
HM hope you shake the cough
8.66m this morning, nice and relaxed.
