Shame about your parkrun Stuart.
Hi to the new folks.
MG1 that's a lot of good gym sessions you doing. Finally got back to the weights tonight aftr my run.
Great that you are signed up Stewart and good to catch up tonight.
jason fingers crossed all goes well and so pleased you are not benched!! (touches wood).
NP nice snow running, as you say makes you stronger.
kaz great that the run did not cause any pain. Take care in the build up.
Tek why did you ever favour Salzburg over Milton Keynes in the first place!
NN nice double day.
mace hope you make a full recovery soon and get well soon HM4.
OH know what you mean, windy here tonight but great fun!
No running for me yesterday or this morning. Did a hill run tonight (mast run Stewart) and it was the muddiest I've ever seen with all the rain that fell on the snow, just mad, mud up to the ankles in places but great fun!! Toiled through it in the old road shoes but then had a blast on the downhill
Can feel the knee but considering the battering it took on the downhill not bad. Think I'll cut the doubles and opt for a low mileage week but get one run a day.
Just seen your post Stewart hope you feel better soon.
Off to watch NP's clip...
Fiona look after that knee...your run sounds fun..I love running down hill
StewartC hope you feel better soon ..have a rest
Don't breathe!! Hope you have a good run NP and that the wrist is improving.
Enjoying the lie ins but getting a bit anxious about the low miles!
Your link didn't work for me.
Hope the knee improves soon.
Well done on everyone's training. I'm feeling a whole lot better than yesterday however will take things easy today.
NP - i managed to view it ... the ol boy done good, and i'm guessing he's you well done
Fiona - you've got plenty enough miles in you to deserve a bit of a rest, enjoy
15 MLR this morning .... jeez the wind really sucks doesn't it !!!
Well ive finally got the all clear from the consultant to get back to work and resume training again.Heading to the gym later for some "easy" aerobic stuff on the bike and some circuits as well(no squats ,boo)
Its been quite a quick six weeks tbh and at the moment ive no other focus than just to get some form of fitness back.Still been doing my core/medicine ball work at home but its no substitute for getting the old lungs really working again.
Alloa half in March is cancelled for me,id probably get round the course with no problems but this was one of my "A" races for the year so im not going to enter unless i feel i could do it justice.
Still a bit of discomfort in my foot but apparently a metatarsal fracture takes 10-12 weeks to fully recover,so in the meantime its on the dreaded bike i go#arsecheekscuttingteeth
HM4 Go on you tube and type in Born2run-Gosford six minutes into the video im the old guy trying to catch the young lad before the finish line.
Fiona tried holding my breath but after waiting over an hour I turned blue lol, you have no need to worry about low miles our doing great so far and a recovery week wont hurt As for the wrist well no change in the past 5 or 6 weeks.
Mace yep red vest over a red teeshirt and wearing shorts and gloves.
HI YC thats good news but the bike/turbo will keep your fitness up and it wont take long for you to get back into it. I know as thats what I did after the stress fracture last year.
15 miles MLR with 4 miles at LT and 1 mile MP in the VLM Bank
NN nice (first) double day yesterday !
mace- well done for struggling through the lurgy and nailing that 20 miler on Sunday. Good 15m in the wind today...
NP love the video. Hope the wrist gets better soon. Well done on the 15m + fast bits
HM glad you're feeling a bit better
OH awesome "exhilarating" 20 miler. Lol re MK
Kaz hope you're not too battered by the weather
MG nice gym work and enjoy the rest today
Stewart well done on getting out yesterday and hope you shake that bug soon
Fiona LOL. Nice hill run last night; hope the knee recovers on the cut-back week.
YC welcome back mate. Wishing you a speedy and full recovery.
Really happy with the run this morning - 1m warm up then 9m at 80%-83%maxHR as a MP test - came out as 8:22mm on a 'rolling' tarmac route, and I only got up to c.80% for the last 4 miles.
YC glad to hear you're back on the go if (predictably) not as fast as you'd likeTek managing to hammer out a daily runNP - nice long run - are you throwing any more foul weather in our direction yet?mace - try looking on it as a challenge (and forget the clock)
Nil for me today and not much for next 6 days (due to work)
Great clip. Well done.
Flying visit- I GOT THE JOB!!!!
Back running tomorrow- I've got a hilly half marathon on Sunday and will be nice to run it on fresh legs
Jason - Congratulations
NP - Nice wee video, Strong finish You also have an impressively low HR!
OH - Great long run, and good work not hitting the half mile
Tek - Great running, another big PB coming up? When is MK?
YC - Take it easy while getting back into the swing of things
Mace - Good run in the wind, it isn't pleasant at all!
Stewart - Take it easy til your feeling better
Fiona - Well done on weights and running
Rest day yesterday then 4.01 (Would have been 3.9x without the traffic dodging) miles @ 9.20 for me tonight. I seem to up the pace a bit much on these runs on the flat (last mile was 8.30) need to remember to slow down as that's likely to be more like MP than easy pace.
Was going to have a recovery week, but legs felt ok tonight so think I might instead move upto 6 running days this week (~56 miles), then have a recovery next week.
With no parkruns to deal with I think I'm just going to ignore fast running, with the exception of Alloa, until after Lochaber. Less hard miles will hopefully mean less recovery needed Also means I have no excuse not to do a MLR on a Saturday.
HM4 glad you are feeling better, hope you are too Stewart.
Love the clip NP! Good MLR from you.
mace nice MLR, the wind makes it really tough.
Great to hear you're back YC!
A pain when work gets in the way of running OH.
Teknik nice MP test, great result you must be pleased!
Good mileage there Stuart, a good sign if you're running at MP when it should be easy.
13 miles for me on muddy trails for less impact but no pace. Went ok, feel the knee but think it's a bit better, certainly no worse.
