He looks cute and trouble. Is he a Great Dane?
Today has been quieter. On tomorrow's day off I'm going to be reasonably busy however if I get chance I'd really like to get out.
Well done on everyone's training.
2nd run for the day. A few sprints up the local hill. Nice to be back running after a couple of days off
Good running, everyone!
4.5 miles @ 9.35 this evening. Second half into a pretty strong headwind, almost bringing me to a standstill in places. Still, it was much less breezy than it was yesterday/this morning
11 or so tomorrow evening or Friday morning.
Fiona- nice running in the wind. Same problem here. seems that a lot of us are battling the elements at the moment Especially those in the North- heard it was pretty grim up your way, OH.....
Stewart- nice 5m
Tek- well done on the breakthrough- great when you get those!
NP- nice 14m and a good pace too there
AGF- well done on the double
Somebody was smiling on me this morning as I drove down to my usual morning run route- it threw it down with massive hailstones, covering the road in seconds and my wipers were struggling to cope. I felt pretty anxious sat inside in my shorts... by the time I ran it had turned to rain and stopped within 10 mins of my 6.5m recovery. PHEW! This evening my achilles were still a bit sore after Sunday's bashing, so i treated them with doing my 15m ML run on the nice soft track. They loosened up enough for me to be able to run the last 6m at pMP, fairly comfortably. Very happy with this run 15.01m in 1.41.24 (6.45 av) splits: 7:10 7:19 7:21 7:23 7:08 7:08 7:12 6:58 6:48 6:13 6:10 6:07 6:10 6:09 6:02 4
I love it when a plan comes together
OH blimey hope everything's nailed down at home
AGF nice dog run and well done on the hill sprints
NP nice MLR today
Fiona well done in the wind and hope you got out again tonight
HM good luck for tomorrow
MG nice 4m
Stuart well done for battling through on the 4.5m
jason wow - nice recovery and nice splits on the 15m! Running track?!
2m warm up and down tonight and 10k at around 80%max as a MP test - came out at 8:20mm, so pretty happy at this early stage...
Well done everyone for getting out there. Fantastic MP jason and Teknik the HR running is really coming together!
AGF sounds like you have a spring in your step after the rest! MG1 you'll be the same after a rest.
Stewart did you run or go to the gym; it looked busy last night.
Decided rather than battle the wind to do a hill session on the treadmill. Ages since I've done that so quite happy with it, 6 miles done. Looks like it's going to calm down later tonight and hope it stays that way for the weekend!
MG1, a little TLC for your legs NP will recommend the cold bath, and trust me that's a different sort of pain
SM6, well done for getting out and it will have been tough in the windy conditions
Jason, the weather gods played nice for a change, another great run in the bank
Tek, are you planning running at 80% for your marathon
Fiona, well done for the hilly six on the treadie, I decided to give the run a miss, the plan for today was to do some 800m repeats at the track but it was just to blustery, so for a change I went to the gym, did some weights, ran on the AMT for 25 minutes and did a little core and stretch session. JS tomorrow so I look to get the 800's done on Friday
Quick post..will read back properly during my long break later
My 14 tonight went likemanaged to run progressive despite wind..which was more of a side wind than anything else..but really strong..9.33..9.27..9.13..9.13..9.14..9.15..9.07..8.53..8.53..8.45..8.41..8.31..8.26..8.23.
2 hours 5 mins
ave hr 75.9% pleased with that..
Fiona nice 6m on the treddie
jason - good thinking
Stewart well done in the gym. I am planning a few runs at 80%, and when the pace/HR has settled (no drift), I'll notch it up to 83%. If I get a stable pace/HR for 10 miles, I'll notch it up again to 84%. The last mara I ran 30 secs slower than my Hadd 83% level - this time I'm going to push harder...
MG enjoy the rest
NN another set of awesome progressive splits...
NP well done in the wind
Long run this morning of 19m - 9m on my own on the flat tarmac, 5m with the club on an annoying boggy hill route, then 5m home. Av HR 71%, av 9:33mm. Quite a tough 3 hrs in the wind and rain. Decided to take NP's advice and knelt (n.b.) in a cold bath. After 5 minutes I managed to stop crying...
Ooh month end
277m (+154m); av HR 73% (unch); av pace 9:20 (-0.37)

Knee a tiny bit niggly so decided to take tonight off to stretch and foam roll and will do tonight's run tomorrow. It'll be good to start the month with a run rather than a rest day!
