Fiona, senslble not running, good on you for donating , I hope they made a fuss of you and gave you tea and biscuits after
Sounds like a good weekend. Well done.
It does seem a bit better however still niggley.
Sounds like a wise decision.
Well done on everyone's training. We had a lot of rain last night and it looks like the weather has broken as it was 18C on the way home tonight (7ish). Lets hope it's cooler than that during the night.
HM4 get some volteral gel I used it when I had my tendonitis, its great stuff and will reduce any inflammation
Fiona- well done for giving blood. Like NN says, good decision not to run too. Expect your HR to be a bit higher when you do too until you make up the lost volume.
7 5m of a hilly loop today, sports massage and 10 mins of core work with the medicine ball- felt much longer
There was certainly a huge plate of biscuits NN, they are nice folks there.
Interesting on the HR Jason, makes sense. Well done on the core work - reminds me I should do some!
NN well done on the hilly 14.25m - nice HR print on so little sleep !
Fiona well done for giving blood - the meal sounded lovely
HM the heavens opened up over here too
Jason well done on the hill work and medicine ball - I must get back to those press-ups
MG well done on the beach run - hard work !
14.9m MLR this morning - 5m on the road on my own, 6m through the woods and park with the club, then 4m tarmac home. Averaged 71%max and just under 9mm pace. I pushed the last couple at around 8mm without the HR exploding, so happy with that. Absolutely drenched but glad it's a lot cooler.
It looks like it's starting to warm up a bit. One thing I love about UK weather is it's always a source of conversation!
Well done on everyone's training. Can't wait for the weekend as no decorating because the cat's going to the vets for her annual jab so hopefully I'll get out for a run. (Providing she doesn't get any reactions to it - although the vets have changed what they give her so we should be okay.)
MG1 sounds great, well done running on sand in the heat and humidity. I recall doing mile laps of an island in the Maldives and pulling a calf muscle in the sand so take care!
Teknik a good MLR for a Tuesday! A nice mix.
HM4 hope all goes well at the vets.
Running with the group tonight. Meant to be 12 lots of 1 minute fast/slow but I only lasted for 5 and felt really breathless. Pathetic really and decided to jog back. Must do more speedwork but it's a start.
OH sounds like a great start to your hols!
Fiona - you and me both regarding the speedwork.I don't think i would have even lasted 5. My mum used to jokingly say that i was built more for comfort than speed but one day i'll prove her wrong!
OH - sea kayaking sounds so much fun!
HM4 - all the best with your cat. what kind is she?
Teknik - great running. always inspiring to read your posts
Rested today as niggles still not getting better. voltaren on shoulder tonight and a diclofenac before bed. My body just doesn't want to play ball - or maybe its my mind...either way....whichever it is will just need to get on board. i'm a runner now darnit!
5 miles steady with the club tonight; warm and muggy. Everything hurt, ankles, calves, thighs, and mentally pooped, but all good prep for the 5k tomorrow. Dare I try sub 7 minute pace?!
HM very true
OH well done on the WHW run - nice mileage
Fiona sounds like they took all the blood from your legs ! I bet you'll feel better today
Channon hope the shoulder's easier today
IJ good steady 5m. Go for it on the 5k - I think you should always try to start fast on a short distance race, and hope to hang on
1.5m warm up then 8m at maraHR. Managed 7:48mm, HR a few beats too high towards the end, but happy enough.
Hope you feel better today Channon and that the aches have gone IJ.
Teknik nice mara HR run. Think you're right about the blood! Chatting to a runner who donates and it can knock the pace for a while. Lots of healthy eating should soon fix things.
She's just a moggie however with some of her physical & personality traits she has some Bengal cat in her (possibly a grand parent cat) and Bengals have a natural immunity to cat luekemia & this is the part of the jab which upsets her.
Well done on everyone's training.
MG1- DEFINITELY a good idea to keep the trainers on for running on the beach- your Achilles will be under a lot of stress otherwise...
Tek- nice running
Fiona- my speedwork sessions start next week.... not looking forward to them, but you are right- doing more is the answer to making them easier
Channon- resting the niggles is wise
IJ- run the pace you have trained for..
Taper madness here with this recovery week- lol! 8.12m done today- and that was it! Kept it late to give me something to look forward to!! In all seriousness, I know that the cutback week is important and it will benefit me....
July Stats: 434.67m in 55.16.43 (7.38 av)
OH - close call on the midges, my worst nightmare. One of the feckers dined out on me Saturday evening andmy foot/ankle swelled like a balloon for 2 days costing me a weekend long run
Stuart - resting HR 40 above sounds like a virus ...
IJ - big pb. well done
HM4 - i can relate to "walking disaster" at the moment soeedy recovery
Stewart - parkrun pb in a 16 miler !! Very well done, the mara training is bringing you along nicely
Tek - well done with the first 20, nothing bad in a 4hr pace @ 71% !? And an impressive mara run today
AGF - well done, sounds like a top weekend.
Keep up the great training all
Fiona enjoy refuelling
Jason great stats - hope you enjoyed the relaxed week
Mace hope you're ok fella
July Stats for me : 292.6m in 42h26 @ 8:42 av and av.70% HRmax. My biggest month ever !
Tek- well done on the milestone!
Mace- Avon Skin So Soft is the stuff- midges hate it! Our local Parkrun start has loads of them, but I haven't been bitten once since spraying the stuff
