I think a short month for you guys would be equivalent to about 6 weeks training as looking over previous years the max I've done in a month is about 45.
I know that should be the point however I've not even done 10 miles it's only been about 6.5 miles but I had only ran for 4 days.
A 10 mile run today in the sun. Shorts, Sunglases.....and gloves/Hat n Took it easy - very enjoyable !!
Hope everyone having a good day !!
Well done on the 10 AGF...and hardly surprising you got plenty of offers to look after Lulu..bet she wont get quite so much exercise while your away though
Nice and sunny here too but still in tights..it has to be very warm or racing for me to get the legs out..
8.1 miles in 70 mins
off to work now
Great 11 miles NN, noticing the lengthening days here too. Love it! Good run today too but I'm with you, still in warmest tights, 2 long sleeve tops, jacket etc.....
OH work does sometimes conspire against our run plans. Hope you have a relaxing weekend.
If you stayed closer I'd be offering to look after Lulu too AGF! You could always just pop her on the Inverness flight!
Hope you get out this weekend HM4.
Sounds like a nice run there AGF.
Did my 22 this morning in lovely sunshine. A few slippery patches but conditions perfect. Such an easy run, had company & time flies when chatting. Saw you near the end Stewart, that was a big group out!
Meant to add with all the foam rolling (agony last night ) my knee seems 100% today so back to the roller!
I should do.
NP, hope the race goes well today
Tek, Hope the legs have recovered and the massage has done the business
AGF, nothing better than a fish supper , another good run today
SM6, Hope the legs are better and your run went well today
HM4, you're now getting back into it so those totals will creep up
Fiona, well done on the 22 you both looked very comfortable, it was a mystery mile group run today, must have been around 30 of us, I plodded along at the back as it was a recovery run for me after last night's effort. I'm a fan of the roller too, I'll be on it later today.
NN, my mileages are increasing and the body is coping, so I've got to be happy with that, another good run at low HR, well done, enjoy the 21 tomorrow.
Interval session last night 4x800m repeats with 400m recoveries between, started with a mile warm up and finished with a mile cool down. Another tough session and I was blowing a little at the end, but I'm starting to see some improvement, from the last time I did this session back in September.
recovery run today 5m in a little over an hour legs are felt better after the run. 49 miles for the week
AGF nice sunny 10 miler
Stuart hope the legs are better affter the day off
NP lol. How was the race?
HM it's a start
Fiona fantastic 22m today...glad the knee's ok
NN good 11 miler yesterday, well done on today's 8.1m and good luck for tomorrow's 21m.
OH nice running and swimming. Enjoy the weekend off
Stewart well done on a tough speed session yesterday; nice recovery today and congratulations on the week's mileage
MG super long run - do you know yet what time you're shooting for in Rotterdam?
9m this morning, all ok here
I've found hopefully a more stable place for the race list...click here http://www.fetcheveryone.com/blog-view.php?id=53497
MG if you're feeling good after 22.25m, and with quite a few weeks of training left, I'm sure you'll do very well.
I would say, however, don't do too many long runs at a pace close to race pace - you don't want to leave your race on the training ground, and the required adaptations to the slow-twitch muscle fibres come from low intensity running.
Have you got a recent Half time?
NN - Nice running. I think your son should easily clear 1.35, I ran 95.17 off a much slower 10k time last spring. I hope to be faster than that when I'm as old as 31 though
OH - At least you go something done last night!
HM - A little is still better than nothing
Fiona - Nice long run today
AGF - Well done on the easy 10
Stewart - Nice intervals, I really need to get back to 800s too.
MG - Fantastic pace for the 22. Looking good for 3.45, at least
Tek - Well done
4.1 miles this morning @ 8.59. Legs were having none of it, so bailed near my house at 4 miles as I had plans anyway.
A gentle hillwalk this afternoon, 7.0 miles, 430m climb in 2.45. Tempted to re-attempt this 10 miles tonight as it seems to have loosened my legs up a bit, and I don't fancy doing 10 tomorrow, then 20 on Monday. Not sure its wise though.
Just got in from work , will have an early night then get up early do my 21 then go back to bed and try to sleep a few hours before tomorrows night shift
Fiona , I am evious you got the 22 done and dusted today, well done and in company, I was meant to be running 16 of my 21 with my brother tomorrow but he has a stomach bug so cant run, looks like a lonely one for me I dont really mind once I get going,
Stewart nice interval session and with the mile warm up and cool down the miles add up dont they, I too am going to a body balance class next week with a friend for the first time, glad you enjoyed yours
Tek nice 9 miler, oh talking of the race list can you add me in for Abingdon marathon 20th Oct, I entered it last night ( why why why ???) I just couldn't help it
MG1 I would think you would easily go under 3.45 with splits like that for a long run that leaves you feeling fresh , do you use a HRM ? that's the best way to tell if you running to fast or not as Tek says don't run too close to race pace
SM6 funny how you think 31 is old lol..you must be about 15 then...
NP fab racing good for you ..nice to get some cash too, don't you just live running past those youngsters, bet they hate it..how nice to make it a family day too
10.3 miles today, partly minor roads, partly farm tracksBrief swim with water temp at 4°C (main problem was getting in to deep enough water to swim as tide was out)
Tek hope you enjoyed your 9 miles
Teknik wrote (see)
- only if you're a signed up Fetchie
AGF - where are you just now?
FionaC - good to get a 22 in - just figuring out when I can squeeze a 20+ in daylight hours
NN hope your long run goes to plan tomorrow, you too NP
LOL at SM6's concept of old age!!
MG1 looks like your 22.5 went well
Aiming to run the Endure 24 again in June and have challenged myself to run 2013km before the end of the year, currently on 120km.
Not really a long distance runner (typically run 10-15km), but hoping to do at least a HM at some point later in the year also. Will be keeping in touch to read about training plans and advice scattered on here.
