Sorry mace left off the congratulations for you too - well done on beating your target.
Stuart good 10 miler yesterday. Hope the 20 went ok
Jason well done on last night's recovery / sprint and nice double again today
AGF based on that sub 1:30 you must be hovering near 3:15 now.
mace your Thanet 20 was the run I should have done. Great running and, as AGF says, plenty in the tank.
NN oh no! Wish you well very soon
NP well done on the swimming, domestic cross-training and recovery run
OH LoL yes, and compulsory tattoo for all the finishers...hope you shake that niggle soon.
MG well done on the gym work.
Fiona nice recovery and speedwork double today.
HM thanks hope you're ok
No signs, fortunately, of any bad effects from yesterday's stupidity. 4m recovery, legs ok.
nice recovery run Stewart
Teknik and Stewart, nice recovery running.
Up early but decided that stretching, foam roller and core work probably of more benefit than a recovery run. Will be out later.
Nurse - get better soon, sorry you had to miss out on the nippers
Tek - good to see you've come out of the 20 ok, a good sign
Fiona - nice work .. i'm really getting into the foam rolling, they're super gadgets in fact i've done a lot more stretching and flexibility stuff lately, and have realised how beneficial it is. Core i've never had a problem with but the rest i've neglected which is a big mistake.
NP - book arrived yesterday ( art of running faster ) ... interesting read. concentrated on my "pulling" today
Great training everyone
What a beautiful morning !!! First run in a single layer since i've forgotten when
10M w 6 x 1000 @ 5k ( 2min recoveries ) .. intervals run along the seafront promenade as the sun came up with a perfectly still sea.
Aimed for 6:30 and did ... 6:30, 6:30, 6:26, 6:30, 6:28, 6:29 .... was working fairly hard to make the last one.
Overall the intervals had me sweating, puffing and spluttering a bit and i had a very pleasant ache in the legs on the cool down home
Still not too good, bit better but no way well enough to run or do much really pissed off as its a beautiful day, and would love to get out for a run.
Mace fast reps so close to that brilliant 20 miler well done..it is indeed a gorgeous day , the best in ages and I am in bed !!!!!
Tek and StewartC nice to get some easy recovery runs done after a hard weekend
Fiona you know whats best for you have a good run later, I must get a foam roller, I dont feel I suffer any aches and pains but feel as if I a missing out on something by not having one..
Nurse, mine was £15 off Amazon , excellent buy.
I was getting some soreness in the top of my legs and after having it for a couple of days i found some really tender spots really high up the thigh around the groin area. I rolled them and was close to crying ... next day i rolled again and it was uncomfortable .... the day after i felt NOTHING !!
Since then it's really helped with various tight spots
Money well spent i reckon.
Hope you can get out soon ...
Fiona good work on the roller - enjoy your run later
mace super interval session - great splits
NN sorry you're still not right
13.5 miles this morning, with the middle 6 with the club. Bright sunshine, but still a little chilly here.
x-post, cheers Tek, nice 13.5
It sounds like a few of us are "suffering" from tough runs at the weekend. Althogh I am very impressed with some of the tempo/intervals that were run yesterday. Well done guys.
I did a couple of very short jogs yesterday and plan the same today. This will be a low mileage week I think as legs are very heavy after the weekend run !!
I started week 2 yesterday which was a total of 25 press ups.
Well done on everyone's training.
2.46 miles done this morning. If I can get out again this week then I'll start a 10k plan. I've also entered my first race which is in May (Hook 2.5 mile race).
NP- cold here this morning- minus 2 and I was scraping ice from the car in a pair of shorts- lol! Nice tempo intervals
On the roller front, i've got The Stick
Tek- nice running again
NN- hope the recovery continues
Stewart- nice recovery
HM4- well done on the press ups and the run
6m recovery run for me this morning- started at 5.45 and for the first time this year, i could turn my headtorch off for the last 2m 10m with 8x100 strides this evening in 1.13.28 and my legs are starting to feel looser again
Thanks & well done to you.
