Thanks all. Doing lots of indoor cycling...which is very boring but at least helps to maintain some fitness and keep (some of ) the fat off..

more physio Thurs then Sat and appointment with consultant at the start of November...

Hope you are all doing well

DF - sorry to hear of your woes. It seems so unfair and extremely frustrating.

I did a 10K last Sunday in 1.15.44 which is an awful time, my excuse is that there was a howling gale and this was a coastal run - the first 5K was fine but at the turn round we then had the wind against us and I found it really tough going, hard to breath and at times you felt like you were going backwards not forwards.

Hippo - you shouldn't worry about being a 'slow' runner - I'm much slower than you but at least we do these things.

I've another 10K coming up then the Great North Run the following week - I'm nowhere near ready, never will be but at least I know that in reading Hippo's race reports that I can get round one way or another (is that not a song by Blondie!)

Finally decided last night to run the Mersey Tunnel 10K today and am glad I did - I enjoyed it far more than the 10K the week before and did improve my time to 1:08:36 - just can't seem to crack the hour - not sure I ever will!! It's definately a novelty to run two miles through a tunnel - especially one I drive through every day normally!

oh, i've been wondering where this disappeared to

Well I'm glad to see this thread back - I had almost given up hope.

I've just completed another Great North Run and am not planning on doing another one - too far to travel, too many people and I always feel under pressure all summer so now my goal is to get faster on some 10K's - in fact a more immediate goal is to keep running without putting in any walking breaks!

Hello to all basers!

I see from my Runner's World magazine that Windsurfin' Susie is quoted as a great advocate of base training!!!

Hello all, another BT'er returns to the fold.

Have a slight injury caused by ditching my BT training and trying all that tough fast training stuff - I want a marathon PB but only have a short time to prepare for that PB attempt. It was a calculated risk. I'm looking forward to a good winter's base training.

David, so sorry to hear about your knee - what's the latest news?
12/10/2006 at 11:18
David-yeah done lots of hadd tests
14/10/2006 at 19:21
SHADES....waiting to see consultant on Nov 1...unfortunately at present it doesn't look too good...I have been unable to walk properly for the last (almost) 5 be honest, I am not sure I will be back running...

Hipps...let us know how your next Hadd compares....
16/10/2006 at 21:37
Hey Hipps...congrats on your new pb...again...seems as though you are on a bit of a streak at is obviously going well...sure you will get that sub 5 mara...just have to allow yourself to run that little bit faster...which I am sure you are capable of...well done..

17/10/2006 at 06:59
((David)) so sorry to hear that, I hope the consultant can sort you out.
17/10/2006 at 07:56

I never did a hadd test in the end

do you think weekly marathons sort of count as race base training?
is there such a thing?

David-bloody hell, i do hope they can sort you
not to be able to walk just isnt right

Hi BT'ers, I'm back Mara training for end of January, so I thought I'd pop in and say hello.

DF - sorry to hear about the protracted woes. Still glad to see you are keeping the base fitness there though.

Susie - keep bashing in the miles and it will pay off!

Hipps - You are amazing and yes I think weekly marathons must count! What's your average HR % for the last few Maras?

Well I'm doing 80% base work for the Mara, but adding a little spice with a mid week speed sesh. I want to continue my annual Mara PB and ideally get from 3:50 to 3:40 which will give me a 'C' start in Comrades.

Have a great day.
17/10/2006 at 14:47
no idea
dont wear HRM if racing

but going by trust rpe-the last one was done at 90% for the first half

Trinni...Comrades should be a short run for you compared to your two day endurnace events.. ;-)
