Hipps...there is no hope for any of us if you find it hard to believe that you can do a marathon....
11/05/2006 at 11:22

11/05/2006 at 11:32

11/05/2006 at 12:09
overtired maybe.

11/05/2006 at 12:09
yes probably
11/05/2006 at 12:09
I have to remeber I never did 3 in 3 weeks before-nor 5 weeks at over 40 mpw

This is when you should take a rest day - when you need it. I improved on BT but always took one rest day a week, 2 if I had a marathon/ultra and the odd one here and there when required. You come back fresher after a rest day and run better.

If you rested more there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to get your mileage up to 70/80mpw while you're not working.

Are you racing this weekend?

4 miles tonight. V. slow, v.enjoyable.

Have got a 10K race on Sunday so not going to do any more running until then - wouldn't want to be too tired now would I?

No I am still here. Having an esier week of it this week after giving blood on Monday. Have run 5 miles every day, but at 65% MHR or less. Legs feel at little heavy, and n ot wanting to push it too muc. Will probably try a longer slow run at the weekend to see how they feel.

SJ - good luck with the 10k. Do you have a time in mind that you are aiming for?

PH - have a good weekend. I hope you can relax and come back keen and ready to run again.

David - I'm fine thanks. Can't run at the moment as I'm waiting for blisters to heal. Will get back to some BT soon.

27 days now without a break. Last week I took it easier, and ran 57 miles after my blood donor session. This was boosted by a long run of 15 miles at the weekend. All my work last week was done at 65%-70% mhr.

I think the easier week has done me some good, I ran a tempo run of 30mins this morning. My legs felt fresh and dispite the wind and rain I was able to manage a good speed. My first HM of the year is in 11 days, so I will do one more hard session later this week, then gradually ease off a bit next week.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

PH - how are you feeling now. Did you enjoy your time away with your sister?

wow PH

The arab/north africa countries are interesting places to visit. I have been to Egypt, Saudi and Morocco with work. The culture differences are fascinating. Must admit I have never tried to run on the streets - just far too hot and busy for my liking (and safety).
15/05/2006 at 17:59
yes, most interesting
not there for long enough to get a full flavour
But glad i had a full lenght dress with me

Did the Liverpool Women's 10K on Sunday. Weather was perfect, cloudy and fairly cool. Sefton Park is a lovely setting and the atmosphere was great with over 3500 runners. I ran with a friend whose pace over longer distances in better than mine (ie. she has better endurance which is a bit sad really as she is 15 years older than me!) I was determined to keep up and did (just). Felt great for the first 2 miles but paid later for too fast a pace at the beginning. Am disappointed with the official time - 1:07:47 however my Garmin measured the distance to be 6.68 miles. This would mean that the 10K time is 1:03:10 which would be a PB for me. My body and legs were telling me that I'd run faster than usual later on so I still am hoping the Garmin was right.

On to the next race....
