clink: the thought of you sitting outside on a cold day in your underwear with your hands and feet fully emersed in buckets of water seems to have lifted any trace of tractor induced existential angst
BR: Be careful, cycling tended to make my PF worse.
Tom: Glad things are looking up. I'm mean spirited and envious regardless of whether I've got a fullblown condition or not.
A brief history of Eric for newbies and absentees:About 2.5 weeks before FLM, I had to bin a run due to bad shin pain. It never improved and I ended up missing FLM and having six weeks of physio for a "calf strain" which had no effect whatsoever. I finally managed to get the physio to refer me back to the Dr, and a bone scan revealed a tibial stress fracture, whom I christened "Eric" ( No releation to Bananaman ) . After another 6 runningless weeks the Dr pronounced I'd made a "good, functional recovery", but wouldn't commit to my resuming running ( but I did anyway ) and recommended another scan in 5 weeks - which was yesterday. So it's back to the Dr for the results on Monday when he'll hopefully give me the green light and Eric will be gone for good.
Nice report from Mara Yamauchi
Have a good one!
Morning all (still is here) from a warm and humid Virginia,
some entertaining banter today!
Clink, I hope you have a high hedge!
What: 90 mins steady turbo d&d, creating a huge pool of sweat under the bike due to aforesaid humidity; swim later if I can get to a pool.Why: schedule - racing next weekendLast hard: a whileLast rest: 19 Aug
I had a lovely surprising run yesterday - set off for an easy 75 mins, delighted in running in the rain, and came home with an average pace of 8.57. I did work a bit for the last two miles but still, it felt lovely and easy most of the time.
Good runnings all.
Sharkie - Agree great post
AF - Thanks for the link, very interesting
What: Serpies 5kmWhy: Last Friday of the MonthLast Hard: Today
I had already decided i wasn't going to race this at full throttle, let it be a social race if such a thing exists this week has been an easy week, but can it really with 2 5km races within 5 days of each other since monday have run everyday but longest run has been 5km and will follow suit tomorrow and Sunday. Before starting winter training on monday really feel like a kid going back to school going into a different class with a different teach, its all exciting. Anyway back to today
5:06 148HR avg5:19 1605:19 1665:26 1685:11 169
26:22 finish time over a minute down on normal but will get back to normality soon
not entirely convinced my max is my max so not posting %s
What - Rest
Why - Addaption (knackered)
Scobos - I agree with Gobi, if you can run 33 for 10K I reckon you can do a 72/73 half
BR - Look after that foot, want to see you toe the line at Chippenham
What - 4m on the treadmillWhy - Contined recoveryLast Hard - OpLast Rest N/A
Past 1200m for the year today so that has put a smile on my face, 500m more for for my years target.
Take care <><
Lovely technical posts over the past few days Sharkie, it's great to get a bit more of a spread between the 60m and the 60M peeps, and pleasing to see Tom back in the mix as well as the reported absence of Eric.
For me? I get this feeling that It won't involve any mileage today, but has involved a BBQ with the family. Interestingly stress free. It can't last.
I'll try some proper training tomorrow morning.
nice one RFJ - ahead of schedule for the year
another fascinating post Sharkie
AF - hopefully the streak will be up to 41 by Tuesday
Tom - nice to see you back, and hope you can soon get some serious mileage in once more.
what: 9.2 miles with some hills, steady pacewhy: seems to be my usual Friday session now
last hard day: Wednesdaylast rest day: Saturday
maybe I need some "adaptation" as well - not the most enjoyable of outings. Legs felt a bit flat at the outset. No wind, but very sticky. Came out of the hilly/undulating part of the course (between approx 2.7 and 5.5 miles) with guts feeling dodgy. Despite which, I was by this point moving reasonably well, so managed to stay fairly relaxed, tried not to think about how far I still had to go, and in this manner made it home without need of emergency pit stops. Have had a bit of a tummyache since though. Just wondering whether I might have picked up a mild bug as I had this sort of trouble on Wednesday as well.
Anyway, round in 63:14, which was only a minute or so down on what I'd have deemed a reasonable time for the effort level, so it wasn't all bad. Mean HR 154.
That sounds like fun Trini!
Clink - never had problem with circulation, except for one finger that I shut in the car door. When it is cold, all my fingers eventually warm up except that one. Guess I damaged the nerve.
I once saw an experiment on TV that had brown-eyed people and blue-eyed people, and they had to see how long they could keep their hands in ice-cold water. The blue-eyed people did the best. I guess the opposite is true for brown-eyed people, being able to stand the heat better than blue-eyed ones. I for one know I don't run well in the heat.
Tom - good to see you back - we all have to do as best we can with what we've got as frustrating as that might be. Good to see you still at it.
Sounds like there is some competition hotting up here on the forum.
What: 5 miles easy - out on the bush tracks back on the road. Been a long time since I've been on the bushtracks as it has been so wet, and the last time I slipped over, so I ran very carefully - and enjoyed it.
Good running everyone.
