Like others have mention, reading this AND the P&D thread really inspires and encourage me to get out the door when I don't feel like it, at least I have been able to do every run in the schedule so far without having to resort to a treadmill like some of you.
Fiona, a good days training, you seem to get doubles done on a regular basis, very impressive
Jason enjoy your well earned recovery week..
NP you seems to slog out every session in very bad weather gritty running, inspirational indeed..
AGF , I loved the clip of lulu..what energy she has..fantasic..
Tek 3 runs.!!! .well done you..
Recovery week in the P&D schedule..ONLY 55 miles
Nice easy 8.2 miles with a few strides in 71 mins , very cold and windy with light snowfall, the first for us here..
Nice easy run NN and I noticed that you have done really well sticking to the schedule. Great to get an easy week.
4 miles easy again this morning and not as creaky as last Wednesday after the run and weights. Planning my MLR later. -4 this morning so might be 2 pairs of gloves tonight!
Hope the weather is improving for everyone.
Enjoy the recovery week Nurse - i spent most of mine (last week) stressing about snow, as i'm sure most did.
Hope it warms up on the MLR Fiona
jason, i'd be interested to know what you think of the Yaktrax as i was contemplating getting some myself.
14M MLR this morning and i was shocked to see so much clear pavement. Not complaining though, and the run was much more enjoyable than yesterday's 10M dodging traffic / sliding about. Ran it a bit easier than i normally do and felt good.
NP x-post, totally agree ; when i wake at 5am i always look on here and have a read which makes it easier to head off out the door in the dark.
Hi just got up..
Fiona , yes I have managed to do every session so far..only had to shuffle things around a bit over Christmas and new year,as I said fortunately the weather isn't quite as bad in this part of the SW as in many other areas.
Jason I used yaxtrax a couple of years ago great aren't they once you get confidence in them, sounds like you have alot of snow to contend with today
NP nice run.. I too wear 2 hats but one of them is a swim cap...seriously really toasty.
Mace nice ML run..
12 miles for me later
NN- Hope the 12 went well. Today was my first run in yaktrax- i now LOVE THEM!!!
13m ML run done and dusted- hard work through blizzard conditiomns. Fun not worrying about pace and uneventful ..... until 2m from home when I stopped to watch a Transit van coming down a back road hill, thick with snow, fail to make the bend, mount the bank and land on its side! Had to clamber on top to open the door to help the driver out. Luckily, no apparent injuries and he was more concerned about his van - what a plonker!! Left him with some onlookers to wait for the ambulance I got them to phone to check him over. Only problem was, when I ran up the hill to the van, I forgot to start my Garmin
When i read the word "plonker" it made me think of Only Fools n Horses and i imagined you arriving on the scene of the van crash in your running gear like Del and Rodders in their batman and robin gear.
Rescued the van driver then ran off into the blizzard
I'd imagine, as Nurse says, the Yaktrax are great once you have confidence in them ...
So do I. I was hopeful today as it was 1C getting into the car at 7am however we had snow/sleet on the way home and it's going to be -2C tonight (the warmest it's been recently).
Sounds like it brought some excitment to the run - hope the driver recovers quickly.
Well done on everyone's training.
NP nice 10 miler in the snow, and today's 13.5m at those splits looks like a tough day out!
OH well done on slugging through the 11 miles
AGF nice tempo yesterday, and well done on today's 8m
Jason LOL at the van story. Was it this time last year you were throwing yourself into the hedgerow to stop in the ice...enjoy the Yaktrax
Stuart well done on that cold 8 miler
Stewart nice running with the JS group. Hope the 1m intervals go ok...
Fiona nice double with intervals yesterday, and well done in the cold this morning
NN nice easy 8 miles. First snow!! Hope the 12 goes ok
mace good running with the 14 miler. Lol at the Delboy vision...
I went out for an easy 3m this morning in case everyone CBAd on the club run tonight.
Of course, everyone CBAd because it's icy in patches here, so I ran on my own tonight. It was supposed to be a 6 mile subLT (MP) run, but it was too scary, plus I could only find 2 miles of safe road, then I turned home. So 4m at 75%max rather than MP, and 7.7m for the day.
Rest day for me.I once saw a similar accident through my car mirror with truck hitting the verge and turning over on its side. Driver unharmed. It was later written up in local paper as driver having taken evasive action to avoid a bus (I saw no other vehicle!)
I have a place in the 2013 VLM, and I am not a long distance runner - in fact I am not a runner of any sort lol
However I have been training hard and on Sunday I reached 14 miles in 2 hours 17mins - so my question is as a none long distance runner is this time okay ?
And also when I am in the marathon will it be okay to run and walk ?
