Quck post meant to be working...MACE wow..welldne you !!!
NN nice 20 miler - good splits, well done
NP well done on the 22 in the cold/wind/ bomb scare
Jason fantastic splits on that 24 miler!! Well done on a three figure week
Mace . I can't believe how quickly you're improving - 11 minutes HM PB while running at planned MP!! Enjoy stuffing yourself
OH WELL DONE. Terrible conditions, glad everything survived. Lol at the swimming.
HM well done for getting out there, and thanks
Stuart blimey, hope the weather settles down so you can run.
TBH I quite enjoyed the conditions. The rate limiting factors were more my left foot and the "undulating" terrain.NP yes - add in after dark and F9 (onshore) gale albeit in company and not having just run marathon
Got outside for about an hour. The snow has frozen on the ground, and its bloody dangerous out there.
I really need to melt before I go out tomorrow afternoon, or i might have to seriously consider a treddy LSR. That appeals to me slightly less than being repeated punched in the face by Mike Tyson
OH just seen your post, sounds like a damn tough run in bad conditions and its amazing that you still manage to appreciate the scenery well done
fab long run Jason and NP (as usual ) NP do you go up to 24 ?
SM6 that is exactly why I went and got mine out the way today, even after a late night and having to work this afternoon....the weather looks even worse tomorrow, enjoy your long run wherever you do it. 4-5 on a treddy I could cope with but a long run !!
Once again well done Mace on that 11 min pb...thats just silly.. but brilliant..
SM6, I'm normally a zombie with a hangover so well done getting a tempo run done with one
MG, another 20 in the bank well done
Jason, great running at the weekend and your totals for the week are awesome
NP, great running again, and adding a bomb scare into the run alongside fighting the elements, awesome stuff
NN, a strong 20 in the bank, well done
Fiona, Arctic conditions out there probably a good
Tek, A good weekend of running for you, congrats on the 1st place
Mace, Congrats a new PB, brilliant news
OH, the conditions sounded horrendous, well done surviving the course
HM, well done getting out for a run
I was planning a interval session this evening, but there is snow on the ground and it is freezing out there so I am in two minds, especially with the HM on Sunday.
I'm going to try and get some faster sessions in between now and Thursday and look to lightly stretch the legs on Saturday, does this sound like a sensible build up to the race?
StuartC , if you are going to do an interval session at all this week do it today or tomorrow, no later if racing Sunday. Have you got access to a treadmill to get the done today ?
No snow here but its bloody freezing and VERY windy..so just a little recovery run on treadmill later for me.
NN, Yeah I could do it at the gym if needs must
Would doing a tempo run on the Thursday be ok, looking to build up to HM pace or is this too close too?
NP just asked you the same question on the other thread....phew I was thinking maybe one more 22 myself...3 weeks out would that be ok ?
SC I wouldnt do a tempo that close if you are racing all out..maybe just a few MP miles ..thats what Fiona did ...and I copied her..
Wow - A weekend away and some fantastic running has been going on elsewhere.
Firstly congratulations to OH on an excellent marathon. Well done sir in very testing conditions.
Secondly - brilliant running mace for a 11min PB. It was a soft PB based on your brighton goals and training this year - but nethertheless the run was very strong and sets you up for brighton Nicely. be proud and go into brighton with Confidence
Eevryone else seems to have done some fantastic running too. For fear of repeating myself well done on all your long runs. Some very good faster stuff too. Most folk on this thread really sound like thier training is coming together and can go into April Marathons with some confidence.
Well after 5 days of no running I Ventured out with Lulu first this for a waddle around the racecourse in snowing conditions. All Fine tho so ran at lunchtime too. 6 miles are MP. All good. Nice to be running again
Stuart well done for getting out yesterday. Hope you manage the LSR somehow/somewhere today
NN enjoy the treddie recovery
Stewart if you're looking at racing the Half, I'd just take it easy this week
AGF welcome back. Nice Lulu run and well done on the lunchtime 6 @ MP. Are you still running the Warwick Castle half or have you binned that now?
OH how do you feel today (warmer, I hope)?
Cold and windy here. Snow didn't settle. 4m recovery, all fine
SC Thats up to you.
AGF Nice to see you back and so is Lulu
Teknik just done mine in the snow bloody freezing again here.
5 miles easy/recovery and a 1 mile swim
17 and wee bit done. 1st 8.5ish were uphill and into the wind, not fun at all. The 8.5 home wasn't too bad though.
Given my lack of LSRs recently, I think I might not bother racing on Sunday. Might do 13.1 w/10@MP, then 18-19 on Monday. I have a 10k the following week, so I might just give it a thrash then.
