It's been horrible this morning, especially on a dark drive to work this morning with 1 headlight out and wipers having to be on double speed.
Well done on everyone's training.
Hi everyone, hope you had a good christmas.
First run since christmas eve today. Missus got me a 610 so decided to go 4 miles and have a play with the HRM.
Started with 2 miles easy at 8m/m as a warm up then battered out 2 miles averaging 6:45m/m, above what i normally do as a tempo pace at 7m/m. Averaged 130bpm on the warm up, then 140bpm on mile 1 and 179bpm on mile 2 which was a slight up hill the full length. Max heart rate ended up 188bpm. Didnt feel the benefit of the run like i normal do but was good to mess about with the new toy
MG1 and jason nice cross training.
Stuart, a nice early entry, great to have that in the diary.
Sounds like you had fun Spark.
More miles jason and NP!
A very icy evening run for me with the run group so we headed off road and ran up to the mast, in the woods it was a quagmire and my poor road shoes will never be the same again - mud came thro' socks and shoes! Running downhill in the dark dodging the ice was like being a kid again! 6.65 miles with 280m of ascent, 230m in one mile.
Jason/Np - soem seriously good running over the festive season. Great work.
Spark. Like the new watch. In terms of eating I now have trainied myself to run in the morning on nothing ( or at most a few grapes or choc biscuit ). The first two miles are very slow but by mile three your body kicks in as normal !! I think those runs have helped my body learn to burn fat more efficiently ( probably wrong ).
Fiona - nice to see that you have stuck with the running club. Sounds like your fears of being the slowest have not turned out correct and that you are having some fun doing some runs you may not normally do on your own? Your nicely set for a good 2013 of running PB's
A relaxed week for me. Only 21 miles so far and do not plan much over the weekend other than a couple of smaller jogs. Back to the 50+ miles next week and hope that this weeks "rest" will help in the long term. Enjoyed an hours progressive run today. Love running with the dog - but today was just good on my own.
HM4 - Hi
Tek - hope the knee is OK?
jason enjoy the medicine ball
Fiona nice double
NP good running and great swim...enjoy tomorrow's race
MG good gym session
Stuart well done for signing up for Nessie - like Jason says, it'll get you up and out running...
HM get that light fixed!
Spark enjoy the new garmin. I normally get up and run before breakfast if I can...same logic as AGF
AGF good to have a cut-back week. The knee is ok, but I'm still just building the slow miles (no subLT runs for a month or so, I'm reckoning).
3m recovery jog after a very painful massage. No yoga until the New Year
No run today (working until 6pm) but nice faily walk in afternoon yesterday followed by 5.7 miles under the moon with Elspeth
Good afternoon.. well its my morning really just slept off a night shift ready for another. I will squeeze a 5 mile RR later though.
NP good grief running VLM with a stress fracture ? and still getting sub 3, I toolike to see how others approach their training..and I am open to new ideas as I seem to have reached a plateau and I guess as we get older we need to tweak thingshere and there, not relying in youth to get faster, also what seems to work for one doesnt work for another..I think for me personally high mileage is fine although my high mileage is no where near that of some of you I seem to be able to tolerate 50-60 miles a week without getting injuredKaz respect to you for training at all with young children are you training now for a marathon ?Tec nice run well and truly off the benchFiona thanks for the reply ..interesting to see how folk fit those 2nd runs in around work and other commitments, so does say 2 x 6 milers really have the same training effect as 1 x 12 miler ?
Jason VERY nice 12 miler !! I guess when you are THAT fast you have time to run twice a day, impressive race times !!
NN no the Stress fracture stopped me from running it this year could not run the length of my drive due to the pain. Hope you run went ok today.
Jason great running as always.
Spark well done on the 6 miles you put in.
OH getting windy again here and it's heading your way.
Just over six miles for me tonight all very easy. looking forward to the 10 miles off road tomorrow.
NN I don't think it would have the same endurance effect but if it means getting the miles in with less risk of injury then it's a plus.
Another nice day's training there NP. Funny how on last night's run that's the first time I've felt really strong and in control going fast on the downhill! Good luck with tomorrow's race!
I found out on Xmas day that I can run up to 12m on empty but will have a snack most times before I go out but like jason I can pretty much eat and run.
Your cutback week will do you good AGF.
Teknik hope the massage helped.
Lazy day for me, stretching, core work etc. Hope the wind dies down before tomorrow morning's run!
I did don't worry. Halfords fitted a new one last night !
Getting windy here tonight again, hopefully not a repeat of last weekend.
NN - yes I am doing Paris in 14 weeks, so just really getting back to training after a few month easy due to illness.
Non running day here due to work commitments, but I did fit in X training and core work A double planned for tomorrow, and then a LSR for Sunday as I have managed to get a half day instead of my normal 10hour shift
NP..DOH I was in a rush and didnt read your post properly..I thought to myself I know no pain is your name but !!! really that would be going a bit far.And same here nice easy 6 done before work which is where I am now...honestly !! hope its not too muddy for your off roader unless you like that type of thing of course
Kaz you will love Paris if you haven't done it before ...just don't be too tempted by the wine at the final drinks station
