AGF sorry I didnt realise you were struggling with niggles, I dont always have the time to read all the post, moan all you like I would,
Well done on everyone's training.
HM, well done with the 4 miles
OH, sounds like you're recovering well after your Marathon, nice to get out when the weather is pleasant
Fiona, did you not get a PB on Sunday, just goes to show that you're in great shape, enjoy the sun honestly I'm not at all jealous
SM6, after tonight I'm not so sure
MG, great tempo run and bike ride,
NP, some great running over the past couple of days and that's an epic shift
Tek, some nice stats what pace are you looking to run your marathon at
AGF, sorry to hear about the niggles
Yesterday was my first run since Sunday's HM and the legs felt a little heavy at the start but they did feel a bit better by the finish.
Today was a MP test a Tek suggested but it was not good, I'm probably not fully recovered yet and the run felt extremely difficult. Miles are banked though
NN sounds like you should go with NP's 8:15 advice. Well done on slogging out the 12.5m
AGF so sorry you're still not recovered. It's been a few years since I raced a Half, but I can remember a flat-out effort would knock me out for a week or two. Take a rest, and then I'd strap on the HRM again for a while, in order to guage just how much you've affected your base. Then make the decision.
HM you've inspired me - I'm going to start the press-up challenge again
Fiona I'm sooo jealous
NP sorry to hear about the likely weather at Larne. It's going to be -2C here, but hopefully dry at least.
MG nice cross training
Stewart I checked your run on Fetch - definitely a HRM / strap malfunction...for several miles. Also it's too close to that Half of yours for the stats to be meaningful. As for me, I'm still pondering. The Hadd tests are hovering around 8mm but it's still not comfortable ... we'll see, 6 weeks yet to make up my mind.
6m steady this morning, feeling fine.
fiona, I trust you are in the air by now and have a lovely holiday in the sun. Enjoy.
MG - Hope the golf was ood and the ball did not plug too often in the ground !!
Stewart - Well done on the MP test on tired legs. Will do you no harm.
I had a massage last night. Very tight perimformis/hams/quads. a little better today - but I think I have a hams strain. Have decided to give brighton a miss. Will keep ticking over and get myself nigglke free in the lead up to Berlin : ) I feel better for making this decision as brighton will not proove anything to me.
All this talk of balls out running, i had to check back to make sure you weren't talking about my mis-hap last week
AGF - really sorry to hear that but it sounds like a well thought out and sensible decision. Shame as i was hoping to be hanging onto you
Nurse - plenty on Youtube .... i mainly use it for IT Band, calves, hams and quads
Tek - i'm signed up on Fetch but the few times i've been on there i find the site a bit " busy ", i can't work out what's where. But then i am a bit impatient with new stuff How do you upload and view garmin stats on there ?
VO2 session yesterday 9 w 5 x 1200 , paces were 6:28, 6:29, 6:27, 6:23, 6:26
14MLR today @ 8:03 @ 73% .... 8:36, 8:25, 8:31, 8:20, 8:16, 8:06, 8:02, 8:00, 7:53, 7:40, 7:27, 7:15, 7:16 and 8:54 cool down
AGF - sorry, decision made. Think just how great your base will be in 6 months' time!
mace those are great V.o2 splits, and today's MLR looked fantastic. On Fetch, you need to install the Garmin Communicator - go here for a link http://www.fetcheveryone.com/article-view.php?id=407. Then to upload a run, go to "Train" then "Add training" then click on the device you're using, or go to http://www.fetcheveryone.com/training_garmin_interface.php
I must say that those are two very very good sessions in two days !!!
Thanks Too Tek
Thanks NP - will take a look. Well done on your 10
And ta for the IT tips Tek, i'll have a sniff around later
Good work NP, keep topping that bank up
NP - Nice run today
Mace - That's a couple of cracking runs, well done
AGF - Hope everything clears up, it sounds like you've made the right choice.
Tek - Good running today
Stewart - I had a wee look at your run on fetch, and what Tek says is right, your HRM went nuts for miles. Also, theres a good chance you aren't fully recovered from Sunday, I felt like crap when I was out last night.
Fiona - Enjoy the holiday!
4.5miles @9.30ish yesterday, felt terrible. Going out for 10 or so in an hour, hopefully that'll be a bit better.
NP nice easy 10m this morning
Stuart hope you're feeling better for that 10 tonight
Stewart hope you don't freeze at JS tonight. The Fetch zones are WHR - you can convert to max% by sticking zero in your RHR in General settings under Settings (top right)
Fiona, I too went on my own I had got chatting on to some posters off the sub 3.45 thread who had been on that trip before so met up with them at Faro and shared a room with one of the girls, its a great confidence builder doing something like that on your own, at least you know you will have something in common with everyone...RUNNING !!
AGF a tough decision and a shame but you have a really good base and will come back even stronger.
Mace a very fast set of 1200 !! good effort and an excellent MLR a damn sight better than my sessions this week I have felt really tired
Tek are you not going to race a half before your marathon to get an idea of where you are ?
Stewart enjoy that wet windy run, I ran on the dreadmill this afternoon, I a sick and bloody tired of wind and rain.
Hey that foa rollerthing is quite painful in places innt ??
6 miles with some strides in 50 mins done on the treadmill thank god todays scheuled session wasnt longer I couldnt do more than that indoors..
NN well done on the 6m plus strides. I've got my local half on Sunday, which I plan to run at 7:15mm or faster...but it's a vanity thing, because I don't think that's going to tell me whether I can hang on to 8mm for 26 miles.... Go easy on the roller !
