 3 miles, or for cross training 20-25mins for me. Anything less doesnt justify the time taken to get changed, showered etc.

  1. It's bad form to comment on this in forums.
  2. Both of you made spelling mistakes in the posts, where you commented on his mistakes.
  3. Ah, the irony 

My typos are rare (and it wasn't a spelling mistake actually). I do have a decent track record of not making sexist comments in my posts though. That's something you struggle with on occasion, I've noticed.

I rarely comment on spelling at all, it just seems odd that this particular poster seems to have gone from being fairly eloquent to virtually incomprehensible. It isn't any sort of judgement or comment on the the OP himself but since it's something I've never come across before I'm just interested to know if there's a reason why.

With regular racing and plenty of hard training recently, I've had a quick check back and have logged 8 recovery runs between 1.5m and 2.8m over the last 5 or 6 weeks.

I just do loops of a local playing field until I feel like I've had enough usually, and in all cases I've got back feeling better than when I went out - which is the point of them. As active recoveries between hard efforts, they've most certainly been worth it, and after initial scepticism find this method preferable and more effective than complete rest.

Fuck me, summer has arrived. madness.

It is also between 1.8m and 2.8m for me, but I am talking metres here just for clarification. Glad I could contribute to the data and avise

come on faithsdaddy, the odd mispelling in a hurry is one thing, as it's a forum aftre all, not some english literature forum, but the guy makes 5 spell mistakes in a 3 word title, and 1 line post! It's almost like some kind of parody.

That's almost as many mistakes as you've made in your post, Stevie.

now now, play nice and give the OP some avise about how to fill his cubbord.

To be fair, the word cupboardy was used to win a game of Scrabble in an early episode of Little Britain, although there was hypnotism involved, and it is a comedy sketch show.

I think BBB's recovery runs serve to make a reasonable point; if you think a run has served its purpose, it probably has.  It may be difficult to prove that there's been any major physiological benefit beyond just staying at home and watching the telly but if you feel good about your training schedule you're more likely to stick to it.

I doant tend 2 bother 4 less than 10kay tbh, Arkinshaw. hope helps

Very odd. Somewhere between 2010 and 2011 the spelling has declined dramatically. Hope everything is ok with the OP as he is asking an odd question for someone with a decade of experience.

It does seem slightly worrying. Unless someone else is using his account maybe? 

24/07/2014 at 19:38

lets all relax eh. Maybe he just upgraded to a smart phone, and finds it harder to type on there!

I struggle with the size of the font on my iPad Mini but I'm not that bad

assuming you're careful and take the appropriate  2 stride warm up (and 2 to cool down) - one whole step flat out would probably be the bare minimum - if you really reduce your stride length you might be able to keep the whole thing under 4 meters.

make sure you hydrate and think carefully about fueling strategies - you wouldn't want to hit the wall mid stride...

LMAO - I was actually crying here trying to read this aloud to hubby!!!!

Onto a more serious subject, I sincerely hope the OP is ok and not ill.
