Can't wait for 2013!
A bit of a wild morning here but 12.6 miles done in hail and gales first then as soon as we started uphill running through ankle deep snow/blizzards. Kayanos not happy. A great run and wore comp socks so calf ok and no stitch! Drank lots yesterday as I read it could be dehydration.
Hope your LSR is in better conditions NP. Any ill effects after yesterday's mountain run?
Highest mileage month of the year! (injured/comeback for most of it but nice to see!)
Looking forward to the highs and lows of 2013 too
....the build up to the spring marathons begins in earnest now
Great to see you putting the miles in again Teknik aftr the injury. Nice mileage for the year and also AGF.
62.4 miles this week, highest since March 2011!
Great running Fiona thats two great days training and 200+ miles for the month and a great 62.4 (no OCD) for the week.
AFG let the training start .
Found you all
Fiona- well done on the mileage milestone
NP- Nice running in horrible weather- same here
17m for me today with 8 at MP. Very hard and I have got a lot of work to do before April- but I'll put the effort in 17m in 1.55.43 (6.48 av) splits: 7:22 7:27 7:26 7:26 7:28 7:25 7:20 7:20 7:01 6:14 6:15 6:07 6:12 6:13 6:13 6:08 6:07
87.53m for the week
Great long runs jason and NP!
Not bad on the OCD now NP although the guy I was running with did not know why we ran to the end of the car park and back I could not stop at 12.51! (jason how could you!! ) He is a non gadget, runs in shorts in the snow sort of person so would not understand. I told him it was a cool down although we were both almost hypothermic!
So here you all are
Had a quick look at old thread
NP call it character building, 17 miles in conditions like that is mentally tough going, well done.
Tec nice to see you getting 14 plus done..hope the knee holds out
Jason if you had put on weight over Xmas on nearly 100 miles a week there would have been no hope whatsoever for the rest of us !! fabulous run impessive pace indeed. I haven't put any marathon pace into my long runs yet, but have done some shorter up to 9.5 miles at marathon pace is that ok doing it like that ? I do intend running with my club for some marathon pace stuff as I think I will find it easier to maintain pace in company, I have been running my LSR by HR and maintaining a steady 70-75%
Fiona ah your not not so lucky with the weather today, well done on toughing it out
66.05 miles for the week !! (no ocd here either NP)
Having said that when I got to my front door I had done 17.57 ..so thought I would have to make it up to 17.6 but then decided 17.65 sounded much better, I had to stop then or I would have HAD to go up to 18 ..but I needed the loo !!
17.65 miles for me in 2 hours 47 keeping eye on HR and managing to keep it under 75% average was 72% ave pace 9.30s..a good few hills round here so pleased with that, especially as I have just finished a run of 3 nights shifts and only had 4 hours kip this morning..4 nights off now
Race List ?!
No marathons or half marathons on the horizon for me next year, however I'd really like to get a new 5k and 10k pb since this year as been pb less! Still it's been the most amount of miles I've ran in a year (304) compared to 2011 (265) & 2010 (217). I've not got the figures handy for the other years however they were about the 200 mile mark.
