Hippo - those leggies of yours need a rest gal!!

Did a bit of speed work and cross training tonight - it's pouring with rain and I didn't fancy an outside run!

Hippo - you can do 50mpw without any trouble, just make sure you get plenty of rest too.

rest as in not race??????????

yer'aving a larrrrrrrrrrrrf!

No, you can race too. What are your next races? I've got a half marathon on 2nd July but am just going to make this part of my high mileage week so will do a long run the day before.

I meant rest as in extra sleep if required.

I have a half on sunday, and a 10k the week after that
then the 50 miler

Well that's OK, you should be able to get 3 weeks at 50 mpw including a huge taper on the week that Kent is on!
At least you don't have to restrict your long runs to Sundays at the moment.

My highest mileage week so far this year was Hull, but I guess it's not wise to do 90% of a week's mileage in one hit!

youre right Shades
Im still flipping well doing them at weekends tho
troble is, im always getting over a bliddy race

Well you won't need to recover from a half or a 10k, will you?
20/06/2006 at 16:37
I did last week!
20/06/2006 at 16:48

20/06/2006 at 16:49
I meant my 10k on Saturday!
my legs flipping well knew about it on sunday and monday

Im sure it will be fine
everything seems hard work just now-not running
am a little below par i think
20/06/2006 at 16:56
don't race hard, you're not chasing PB's in those races so just use them as tempo runs or in the case of the half, I would suggest you do that at marathon pace.

Its very hard with all the adrenalin shades

no, this year isnt a pb year
21/06/2006 at 21:39
What happened to the nice, sunny weather then?

Hippo - you're an experienced racer so just try and curb that adrenaline. Just by holding back a little will make all the difference in recovery and you'll probably find you run a better paced and certainly more comfortable race.

Hi all. How are you?

Unfortunately, I am still coming up for 5 weeks since I last run....torture ;-(

Dublin is begining to fade....

Physio tonight....again...

There are some (subtle) signs of improvement and I think the quad strengthening is begining to work...

Hopefully I will get back into running over the next couple of weeks....all of which will be easy base training at first...the thought of starting from scratch is a little depressing though...especially as my pace/HR relationship was going so well just prior to injury (down to 8.40 min/mile for sub 135 and 8 min/mile for 145-150)...never mind...have to start somewhere..

When you resume you're BT it won't take you so long as the first time round to reach fitness again.

I did 6.6 miles with my girlie group tonight - thoroughly enjoyed it. We have a website - !!
