Hi, everyone! Sorry I havent posted in a while, had a bit of problems with my ITB. Sports Massage on my thighs, a bit of taping and plenty of squats and lunges has seemed to have done the trick. Had a few recovery runs last week and a steady run on saturday and a tempo run today and im feeling in top shape. The sports massage has really helped imo, my legs feel much looser. The physio said my quads were very tight and i had weak muscles in my bum lol. Looking forward to getting my teeth back into training. Hope everyone is doing good .
Good luck to your mate Stuart! A good week's training. I normally have a gel at 8/10 and one at 14/15 miles, seems to keep me going.
AGF good to hear you are on the mend. No run for me today.
Make the most of the rest day mace.
Nice recovery runs NN, Teknik, NP and gym session MG1.
Good that you are back training Spark.
Legs feel fine but thought the knee might appreciate a break so a 10 mile turbo in 28:40. Back to it tomorrow.
Well done on everyone's training.
AGF, hope you have recovered from the flu
Fiona, MG1, NN, looks like Monday a good day for cross training
Spark, welcome back
SM6, can't believe there is only 8 weeks until Lochaber, it's getting close, well done on the 20 and in good time too, re nutrition I used jelly babies and a 500ml water with a Zero tab in it, I'm going to try a couple of gels next time to see if there is any difference
Tek, nice recovery run
NP, temperatures have dropped here too, the tights will be back on tonight that's for sure, I've been reading the book, up to chapter 3, it is well written and it is an interesting read.
This week according to P&D is a recovery one, so I decided to rest yesterday after Sunday's long run, today was also scheduled for rest or cross training but I would prefer to run so I'll move one of this week's runs forward and I'll bank the rest day
Thanks for the best wishes guys. I am still snuffly - but coming through. Plan a small jog tonight.
I will not be around much for next couple of weeks as I am either busy at work or away to celebrate the wifes Birthday.
Keep up the good training
NP nice training yesterday, well done on the steady 7 - shame about the temperature dropping again. I skimmed through the book, shutting it quickly after noticing the "fartlek" and "hills" in bold...it's back on the "to do (later)" list.
MG nice gym session
Spark welcome back
Fiona well done on the turbo. Hope the knee's ok this morning
Stewart I like your thinking
AGF hope tonight's jog goes ok.
13m this morning including some miles with the club - aaaagh fartlek session!
Tek have a good run at least the weather is kinder at the moment which does help make the harder sessions a bit more enjoyable
NP well done on the early run.
SC you are as bad as me I struggle with rest days and only have one when I am knackered as long as you take it easy a nice recovery jog isn't going to hurt
Busy morning for me had to squeeze everything in as on an afternoon shift and wont get home till 9 tonight .
Schedule today was 10 miles GA so made it a bit more interesting, I did 1 mile warm up then 7 miles MP ave 8.09s then 3 miles @9s...quick shower then pilates class, which is harder than anything else I do, my balance is crap but guess it can only get better.
Good to see you back Spark
Tek - i'm sure the HR monitor makes a run harder anyway, if only because of the bloody stressing
Nurse - nice to see you're mixing it up
NP - black ice sounds nasty, take care
Well after the weekend's racing i've got all excited and whacked myself in for a couple of races
Thanet 20 ( 3rd March )
Lydd Half ( 10th March )
Paths are clear here at the mo, which is just as well as I'm going to get out for a run tomorrow.
A quality double NP. Great to feel the legs still have something in them at the end of a tough session.
AGF good timing on the hols after the flu.
Stewart were you at js tonight? Very foggy out there!
Teknik unusual having a club run in the morning, do lots go to it?
NN nice MP run, good to make things morre interesting.
mace great to have some races in the diary.
I hope the weather is nice for your run tomorrow HM4.
4 miles easy this morning and 7 miles with the group tonight. Very foggy and some ice up the hill so easy paced all the way.
SC yes learn to love the hills ( I bloody hate them ) I get overtaken all the time on hills, When it comes to down hill though look out no one and I mean no one will catch me I really can fly down them,so I make my ground up then,
Mace nice to get some races to look forward to to break thing up a bit, I would love to get a 20 mile race done but the nearest to me is the Duchy and on the same day as my half, there is the Gloucester 20 on the 17th but its a 2 hour drive,
HM4 enjoy your run tomorrow
MG1 I bet its a quality work out and no slacking doing core work under instruction well done,
Fiona I take it the knee is ok ? nice double day
NP nice interval session there, I may resort to the treadmill for mine tomorrow , its so undulating round here and hard to find a nice long enough flatish stretch unless I go into town and use the track...now theres a thought. will avoid the club session though as it tends to get too competitive and end up tasting blood and feeling sick
MG good core work, hope the legs are not too tired today! I did weights last night after the run.
Stewart hope your son is home now. We went to the mast but it was a nice easy pace.
NN sounds like I need to push myself more on intervals! Makes sense to use the treadmill for consistency.
AGF good to get the run when you can.
Knee always reminding me that it is not really happy, alarm went off this morning and I did get changed for my run then decided to save it til later as MLR planned this afternoon. Might start to turbo in the morning instead of the short runs, mileage will be less which is not great but I'll still get some cardio and maybe help the knee....not sure?
....or run the easy 4 miles at a slower pace Fiona.... ( Gobi used to run recovery at 9mm ). Hope it improves for you....
