A freezing day. Decided against the long run today and did 10 miles, made it a hilly part offroad one. Feeling a lot better but just got the feeling that further would do more harm than good. Pleased that I went out despite the biting wind etc
I don't think that photo will see the light of day!! The photographer was telling me I looked too small and was there any way I could look bigger which caused great hilarity.
I hope all the long runs/races go well today.
NP well done on yesterday's swim and fast Parkrun. Terrific week's work. Hope the snow isn't too bad.
Jason nice Parkrun and easy 10 double. Hope the monster LR goes ok.
Stewart well done on a tough 20. Well done for pushing yourself up that last hill.
MG great 20 miler. Nice splits and strong finish - looking good for Rotterdam!
Fiona well done on the off roader yesterday, and well done on today's 10. Lol at the photo shoot.
Stuart glad you shook the hangover; well done on the easy 6
HM hope you get out for a run
NN hope the LR goes ok.
Hope OH gets back with all his bits intact. Started to snow here, too...
Club race today - hilly 7m. I was going to take it easy after yesterday's 20, but when two of my faster clubmates failed to show, I went for it. Managed av 7:14 pace, and, for the first time, I won.
Cut back week: 63m @av 8:49, av 74%max HR
Fiona are you a petite little thing ? ah bless..I like you cos you know when to be sensible.. and never feel the need to go 100% all out all the time...nice running.
Tek oooops I wrote the bit to Fiona about liking her cos she is sensible and knows when to take it easy, before I saw your post about your hilly fast 7 the days after a 20 !! well I like you too cos you go for it..there have I redeemed myself ?
Decided to bite the bullet, weather grim but not as grim as forecast for tomorrow , 20 miles in 2.58 finished feeling nice and strong..
off to work now and looing forward to race reports later
NN great bullet biting and another super 20 into the bank
MG1 you having a rest day today
Teknik great running after yesterdays long run, well done on 1st.
Fiona better playing it safe at this stage you have plenty in the bank We need to see the photo
Jason hope the 24 went ok.
Well just over 22 in the bank with 8 miles at MP but only in Northern Ireland would runners need to change there normal route half way through a run because of a bomb scare... made a little diffrence to a section of a MP mile af I had to run over a flyover. Fiona like you it was bloody cold here and windy.... Legs feel great and am very happy with how my training is going
Fiona- well done on the 10 and the photo shoot Know what you mean about the wind!!!
Tek- FIRST- can't get better than that
NN- great 20- well done
NP- Nice 22m with MP and a diversion Looking good, matey!
Really thought I would have to cut my 24m short and turn back at 9-10m due to not being able to feel any of my fiongers at all despite wearing 2 pairs of gloves, but ploughed on- glad I decided to wear tights today though! The only 2 long run routes around here involve either running along a flat, exposed coastline, or inland uphill for the first half and downhill on the way back. No prizes for guessing which it was today- the hills! Pretty pleased considering the weather as it turned out: 24m in 2.50.35 (7.06 av) splits: 7:24 7:30 7:26 7:25 7:27 7:20 7:19 7:20 7:24 7:23 7:17 7:18 7:15 7:14 7:10 7:11 7:04 7:06 6:55 6:40 6:38 6:28 6:11 6:11
Just in having had to rush one of my boys to his footy match and have to rush back out for mother's day lunch
Well done Fiona in the cold, great long runs Nurse and NP, and Tek .... YOU DA MAN !!!! Top running dude, great win.
Long story short, 18M today with 14 @ MP ( maybe ? ) including the Lydd Half Marathon. Bit windy and cold but a decent coarse and i aimed for 7:25 pace, basically hit that every mile and could have made a few more places at the end but kept a lid on it. Felt comfortable but started to work a bit harder 2M out
Result was 1:36:39 and a pb of just over 11 minutes
After 2.5 hours of driving, 18 miles and watching an under 11 footy match in the freezing cold i think i've earned a pig out
Enjoy the rest of you weekend all.
Great long run jason !!!
Well done Teknik, fantastic result!!
NN fantastic 20. I've had too many bad experiences of pushing it and things going wrong so just being (perhaps too) cautious. I'm a whole 162cm (more with heels) but when lined up with a lot of tall blokes we seem to disappear!
NP well done on the 22. Scary stuff, that would certainly make me do an MP run!!
Fantastic 24 jason, great pace at the end. Is VLM back on for you?
mace well done on a massive PB!! Amazing to take 11 minutes off!!
Well done toughing it out OH, sounds far from ideal conditions. To only be 10 minutes away from predicted time in the biting wind and snow is good going. The foot will get time to recover now.
Ha ha! If it goes on the website I'll let you know!
I did get out. It was only for just over a mile as it was really cold & horrible. Well done to you !
Well done on everyone's training.
HM - Well done on getting out
OH - Great running If the weather is as bad as it is here I'd have been looking for another marathon in the next few weeks But then I'm a wimp! Well done
Mace - Impressive running Nice PB, even though you weren't full out.
Jason/NP/NN - Fantastic long runs
Tek - Well done on the win
Currently a blizzard here so I've not been out, hopefully get a break in the weather soon. Don't have to be up tomorrow morning (I start work at 10pm) so I can in theory wait all night but I do want to get out soon...
