Happy birthday Stewart !
Happy Birthday Stewart!
3 miles for me this morning - outdoors for the first work morning this year!
Supposed to be sleeping but there is a lot of noise going on 2 doors down, I can hear a cement mixer through my ear plugs, will try and nap again laterStewart hey happy birthday fellow Pisces and I wish I was 42 its my birthday on Sunday the 3rd I will be 51 and by the way, I am doing a half marathon on my birthday so you have no excuse really not to do at least a little run
Well done all some serious mileage for the month mine was 265
Going to try and nap again now..
Tek - Nice run yesterday, and great total for the month
HM - Hope you didn't land on the cat!
NN - Good running, even if it wasn't the full distance you wanted
NP - Nice speedy run
Fiona - Great total, and average pace for the month!
Stewart - Happy birthday Enjoy the rest day
MG - Sounds like a good session at the gym!
6 mile cycle, plus some lunges, chin ups and dips at the gym after work. Should probably start adding weight while I'm doing chin ups as my fat ass isn't heavy enough. Going for a short run later on, probably between 3-6 miles dependent on how the old legs feel.
Running for Feb was:
Piss poor really, but had I not got lazy last week, I'd have been close to/just over 190. My taper starts on the 1st of April, so I'd really like to hit 200 miles this month.
Some great running going on. Hope everyone is doing well.
Weather is excellent today so decided to go a dog run down the park. Felt fired up so decided to do 1mi warmup, 3x2miles at a tempo pace with 0.2 mile recovery jogs and a 1 mile warm down. First 2 miles tempo felt horrible. 2nd lot felt great and the last 2 were a struggle, dropped pace considerably but felt full out. Really feeling the benefit of these faster runs, being scared to introduce them after tendonitis i think has been a big mistake so going to focus on some quality sessions, maybe twice a week.
Splits: 6.55, 6.58. Rec3:00 7:04, 6:45, Rec2:54 7:45, 7:27 and 1:43 for 0.25mi to finish.
HM well done on the press-ups. Our cat stears clear of me doing them - too much whining and swearing (me, not the cat).
NN nice treddie pace! Well done on the month's total. Hope you got some sleep today.
NP fantastic pace for those 800s yesterday. Storming month too...
Fiona nice 6m yesterday. Great month's work (and pace!). Well done for getting out this morning.
Stewart nice 6m yesterday. Big month, well done. Enjoy the birthday!
MG well done for getting into the gym after all that driving. Good luck with the long run tomorrow.
Stuart good training. Hope you can avoid the lazy days next month
Spark nice tempo - 6m of fast stuff is tough going...
4.6m recovery jog this evening, 90 minutes of really really hot yoga this morning (I was late and had to stand by the fire again).
Got a couple more hours sleep then went for easy 4.5 miles with a few strides and called in to the gym on my way back to do some core stuff, probably could have done it at home but I try harder in the gym
Tek I know hot yoga stands for itself but is the fire the only way the room is heated ? and how hot is the room
Spark very nice tempo pace well done.
SM6 a nice days training already and have a good run
NN well done on the recovery run. The yoga room has air-con on hot, radiators and a fire. I think it's about 40C....
No I didn't.
Thanks guys & well done on everyone's training.
Stewart I'd take a couple just to see if you can stomach them. Personally I don't use them at all in training (get the body used to burning fat etc.) but I do take a few on race day - about 6 is my limit before feeling sick...
6.8m hilly road run this morning. All fine here..
Happy birthday for tomorrow Nursie
Busy day for the thread tomorrow
03/03/13 Llanelli HM Jason D
03/03/13 Bideford HM Night Nurse
03/03/13 Essex 20 Teknik
03/03/13 Thanet 20 Mace
03/03/13 Silverstone HM AGF
Good luck to everyone!
Nurse - hope the sleep's improving
Tek - LOL @ standing by the fire, that's really made me smile, sorry A bit like at school ; i hated being late for a lesson as you always had to sit at the front
Stewart - hope you had a fantastic 42nd, wish i was 42 again 3 gels per hour DOES sound a lot.
I booked my first ever physio appt yesterday - bit of a problem with the knee which i've been aware of for some time now on and off ( a couple of years i'd say), It doesn't bother me running at all. Infact i never feel it when i'm running but i'm starting to get paranoid about it now as M-Day becomes a reality so think it's best i get an expert opinion if only to hopefully put the mind at ease
Thanks Tek, how nice it is not to have to spend a Saturday morning planning the Sunday long run.
Good luck to you and everyone else running as well
Good luck to all racing tomorrow!
Nothing wrong with thoses stats Stuart, looks like March will be a big month for most.
Great tempo running Spark. Not an easy session.
More good training Teknik, hot yoga and hill running.
NN good that you got more sleep, hope they're not working over the weekend with your half tomorrow!
Stewart I take a couple when out for 3 hours so I'd probably have 2-3 for 3:30. For race day I'd have 5-6 (High5 ones which have 80kcal each - lucozade ones have 120kcal each and are thicker)
mace I hope the knee is nothing serious.
7 miles this morning for me.
