David - the HR monitor thread is certainly lively. FWIW I'm planning to try base for a while, as I'm knackered out from the marathon, and my times are already dropping. WS - I'm back up to an hour a day and 2 hours Sunday, all at <150bpm (MAF). I think once my pace stops improving (or when I get bored of one hr pace)and when my mileage is comfortably higher I'll do some faster stuff again along the lines af Hadd.

bump...and hi to all BTers out you all doing? still not running here...still clicking away...hope you are all well....

Yep DF fine thanks. Keep the faith I'm sure the injury will recover.

Doing the Race for Life tommorow - little 5K trot round the park.

Race for Life completed - not too bad but still feel I could have done better - I always start flagging at around the 2 mile mark. I ended up taking 2 tiny walkbreaks (ie to the count of 10) time was 32.34 which is the best I've done in quite a while and especially on an 'undulating' course.

I need to increase my ability to run for longer faster (that's obviously the million dollar question).

Will start BT tomorrow as I have a whole 6 weeks without a race (well except for a hilly half) so hope to get some decent training in.

The soles of my feet are always sore after I've run too - is that an excuse to buy new trainers?
04/06/2006 at 22:47
it might be actually
I have 2 sets of trainers approaching 500
and i am noticing soles of feet

BT started today. 4 miles @ 70%MHR, very slow but enjoyable run.

I am BT using maf formula, up to 50mpw. Hoping to raise that to 70mpw, then introduce some faster runs a couple of times a week. I do notice an improvement in 4 weeks (10:30min/mi down to 9:50min/mi), but part of that is recovery from FLM. It's frustrasting to run so much slower than usual I find. Also my legs always feel really heavy at this speed - but maybe I'm still recoveing. I bought a pair of flat trainers (boxing trainers actually) to try some short runs in, to see if I can manage more of a midfoot than heel strike. Anyone else do that?

Thought I'd better post something as it's gone awful quiet again in here!! Everyone out racing?

New trainers have been purchased and they are so comfy - Asics Gel Kayano. Only run in them a couple of times so far but I think they're going to be good.

4.1 miles plodded tonight - nice and comfortable with a couple of little sprints to get up the hills on the flyover.

Well done Susie - keep it going. Miles make smiles!
13/06/2006 at 22:34
oh blimey
Im on day 74
but the racing schedule isnt base training-speed has been as low as 14 min iles

Im just getting used to daily runing, and getting used to recovery form extreme stress
its a new training prog

don't think I like the sound of 'extreme stress training programme'

I'm back into BT now and loving it, hope to get up to 70mpw this week
