Tek thanks, its just so frustrating when everything was going so well till the end of march. I just assumed everything would fall right back into place and it hasnt.
Nice to see you in a positive frame of mind after your disappointment.
NN good that the iron is working. You were running so well and it will come back. Both you and Teknik trained harder than most on here and that's what is so tiring rather than the day itself so you both deserve a nice recovery period.
Stuart and jason nice intervals!
MG1 sounds like you had a tough core session.
A good long midweek run Stewart.
A busy evening last night! Put 3 banana breads (for a charity thing) in the oven then onto the treadmill as wanted to be around when my sister arrived. Only got 5k done as she was early then had to wait for the blasted baking to finish before heading out with her for 30 minutes. She managed non-stop (last time we stopped a lot!) and also average pace 11:59mm (previously 12:27mm). So mileage not what it should have been but plan to get out tonight. Have an all day work event on Saturday so have to plan the miles around that.
Stewart solid 10 miler yesterday, well done.
NN sorry my post last night was a bit too much "tough love". Things will improve as the mileage creeps up again, and the improvements will arrive more quickly than last time as you didn't shred your base. Have faith.
Fiona well done on the baking and running. Well done to sis too!
A bit achy and stiff after last night, so today's MP run was a bit of a struggle. 1m w/up then 6.7m at what flattened out to be 80%max HR. Only managed 8:19mm average - so probably 30 seconds slower than where I peaked in April - but I was worried it would be worse!
Fiona - mrs m has just taken up walking with a friend in the evenings so i think running may be a way off yet
Tek - lol @ boozing and smoking
I think the issue is more she prefers me with a bit of meat on me and was a bit shocked at the weight i lost mara training. I do most of my running before the kids are even awake so it's not like i'm eating into family time.
Nurse - you'll be ok and i'm sure it won't take too long to get back to where you were. And a nice bit of liver will boost the iron levels
Stewart - good to see the HR a bit lower. Much lower than you normally train at ? I do often wonder if you have your max right ?
Stuart - nice intervals, i try to avoid in winds above 2/3 mph
Fiona banana bread... I hope all 3 loaves make it to the event well done to your sister, I saw my sister last night, but we just ate and had wine, she used to run but has lost interest which is a shame . And yes I was thinking the same about the training through the hard winter having taken so much out of me as well as the night shifts,I guess there are times when if you don't voluntarily give your body a rest it will just stop of its own accord..
Tek I know you are saying and its what I would say to anyone else, its just hard to listen to one's own advice at times..well done on the 80% run, I think I will leave those out for a few weeks myself.
Pilates and nice easy 6.5 @ 9.30s today..
I think i need reading glasses, i missed Tek and Fiona's posts
Not worse is a good thing and counts as improvement Tek
Nice bit of sisterly bonding Fiona
Nurse - do you enjoy pilates or are they still twatty ?
Mace I am enjoying the Pilate's and after 3 months of regular sessions I can feel an improvement in my balance and core ...and actually I love liver too.
Thanks guys & well done on everyone's training.
Body said enough's enough this evening - CBA fairy led me astray after 3 miles (getting further behind the group)
NN- I am sure you will come back stronger.....
OH- Listening to the body is always a good idea
Fiona- Banana bread... oh yes, I remember that in my carby days Well done to your sister Hope the weekend isn't all work....
Boy, is it windy here today??? 2 recovery runs only today and had to dodge fallen branches galore this evening!
Fiona nice running and baking combo
Tek well done earlier you will be back to your pace from April in no time at all
NN sounds like the Pilates are helping, I find it's nice to do some gym work amongst the running
OH enjoy the rest
Jason it is more like March than the end of May!
6 steady miles in 8.33 av, nice mix of hail and rain tonight looks like Saturday is going to be the best day this weekend
NN nice to see you starting to turn the corner, we all know what it's like to feel like your starting from scratch again, I'm in that place right now but know it will all come back just give it time
Fiona mmmmm banana bread send some over please, tell sis well done on running for 30 mins.
Tekniso glad your on the mend and seem to be improving.
Jason well done on your double day in the wind.
OH you ok to have a CBA day sir
MG1 well done on the six miles.
Well two recovery runs for me today 4 miles in the wind, rain and cold this morning and 4 miles on the treadmill at work, that's the start of the doubles and start to add a little speed at the bend of next week.
NN, well done with the run and Pilates as others have said the fitness will soon return
Fiona, hmm banana bread is delish well done to your sister you should take her downtown JS one night she may enjoy it
Mace, I did a hilly run a couple of weeks ago HR got up too 187, so I think 190 is not to far off, and there is some signs of improvement, over a minute for the same HR
Tek, another good run and signs of improvement
OH, take it easy you've had a hard week of racing and you do deserve a cnba day
Jason, nice double today
MG, nice wintry 6 miles for you tonight, and the weekend is definitely looking nicer
NP, nice doubling the miles will be racking up now
JS tonight went out with the 6 mile group no one wanted to do a 5
a loop around the canal started in the rain and finished a little muddy but in good spirits, the legs felt fine ttonight stats: 7.49mi, 1:09:55, @9:20mm avgHR157(82%)
Teknik I hope the drugs are working?
mace great that she's walking, you never know!
NN I had to trim the ends off the loaves! When I make them for myself I cut back the fat & no sugar but these are yummy. Also made a choc cake last night for them. Sounds like a nice relaxed run that you had.
Blimey OH, I think I'd be resting after a week of racing! Well done for getting out at all.
Are you still on your no/low carb diet jason?
MG1 well done for getting out in the bad weather. Much the same here.
NP - how is the hip now?
Stewart nice run last night. My sister is near Elgin so just pops in when work takes her through here. Are you heading to the Lewis half tomorrow?
8.32 miles for me last night (brings the week's miles so far to a round number! ) a fairly breezy, cold run. Back to the woolly hat and long sleeves etc. Got an all day work thing tomorrow but will get a short run first thing then plan the longer run on Sunday so should still be building the miles.
Fiona, afraid not, it is one I would like to do a few folk from the group are going over, nice run last night and it was a bit chilly, base layer long sleeve top and Gillet for me, at least the weekend looks good
mace hope you're winning the debate...
NN well done on the pilates and easy 6.5m
HM have you got your entry in for Purbrook yet
OH take a rest fella
Jason well done on the double windy recoveries (in both senses)
MG nice steady 6 miles last night in the rain
NP glad you're ok - nice double
Stewart nice going with the muddy 7.5m last night.
Fiona the drugs seem to be helping. No more nosebleeds so far, although the stuff stings like hell for a while. Breathing is a bit better too...well done on your 8.32 miles.
My favourite day of the week. Sports massage, 90 minutes in the hot yoga room, then a little 5k bimble this afternoon. HR still elevated but going the right way.
I think I have, although not received confirmation email. I had to email the race director as online entry not working on here & he gave me a link to another website so will log into that later & double check.
Well done on everyone's training.
HM - When is the race?
Tek - Good training today, good that the HR is getting back to where it should be.
Fiona - Nice running yesterday and today.
Stewart - Looks like a tough run yesterday, good going.
NP - Nice couple of runs yesterday
Jason - Same for you, good running
MG - Well done on getting a run in those conditions, don't think I'd have bothered!
OH - I think you can be forgiven for the CBA'd fairy striking!
6.28 miles @ 10:06 ave. 150 ave HR
Struggled to keep HR down, could blame it on lack of sleep aswell as the sun warming me up a bit. Played a bit of football just after my run, but spent more time in goal and didn't really move much.
7.5 with parkrun tomorrow. Not sure wether to run it as a tempo run, or go all out. I had always planned on PB'ing on my 50th parkrun, sadly there is no chance of that.
8.75 miles club run last night, I ran with one of the girls I'm trying to make improve and ended up running harder than I wanted to!
4.5 tonight, including 5 x an evil hill and that really hurt! pilates class straight after which just killed me.
Then a huge plate of baked potato and bolognaise which just cured everything!
16 June. I had to enter it via Running Diary. Well done on the run.
