M. - It is exciting isn't it. I checked the entry list too - very pleased to see my name on it! See Bernie tried for a W60 10k record - just missed out. She is amazing. I won't be seeing much of you in the race so hope to see you before or afterwards!
Shame about the shoe-lace - that happened to me in my last xcountry race but I didn't stop because I thought I'd have no chance in catching up. You stil didl a good time and as you say if you hadn't had to stop maybe a 3rd placing.
Sounds like you have been doing some great training. Our race was on Sunday, so flagged the long run so hope to do a bit more this week.
Thanks guys for your support.
What: 5k easy am - took Mae with me, thought I'd better be careful in case she tripped me, thought that would be all I need.
Well done to you both, M and NZC.
What:4.5M Fartlek. legs shattered now.
Why; Felt like it. dark,drizzly, but quite warm
Just put some diluted juice into my morning coffee ! 'Stupid Boy !'
Sons pipe bands did quite well at Highland Games on Sat 4 with prizes won.
Catch up time.
Great report LMUH. All in all not a bad race. Well done.
A bit soggy here in Kent today. The rain is very fine rain but exceedingly wet! But since it's warm as well the rain is quite refreshing.
What: 3.1 miles easy (ish)Why: recoveryLast hard: yesterdayLast rest: 6 April
Have a good one
Shame about the lace M - elastic laces are the way to go! Well done on the place in the Nationals, must be so exciting.
What: nothing.Why: I want to recover well and get some good running miles in this week.Last hard: 24/7.Last rest: 20/8.
Lyrics - no.
M - how annoying with the laces, happened to me once and it breaks your rhythm completely so you did really well to get back and come in 5th. AND off to christchurch!
NZC - sounds like you and the other girl have some good workouts pushing each other along. delighted for you to be going to the nationals too, congratulations!
sorry to hear so many are struggling with injuries and niggles - veest, ceal, moraghan, alehouse.. it is the time of year when things catch up on us, hope things improve
ceal - thanks for posting the link , would you believe it's the first time my AW has not turned up! maybe they ran out of copies great article, you must be very satisfied with your achievements
welcome to dr dan and 41 hound
did just over 15 miles yesterday, sort of 'progressive' - started and 9.20's and sped up to 8.30's. felt good and could prob have done more but didn't have any drink and it was quite warm. this was the run i was supposed to do 3 weeks ago when i got flued out at 12 miles
gym today, recovery session
HelloNo idea on the lyrics, but I did know yesterday, by Marianne and the Diamonds. M.Bl**dy shoe lace. I always tie mine in a double knot. Some shoes have short laces and it is a struggle to do so. I think considering you had to stop you did magnificently. So off to Christchurch for the Nationals. NZCWhat can I say, 2 of you earned places in the Nationals. Well done indeed. I know what you mean about running out of puff with an uphill start to a race, but I think as long as there is a downhill equivalent to follow then one can recover, which you clearly did. You fought hard and achieved a Team place. MavaYou did the right thing stopping at 17 miles. I would have thought that only 3 weeks after a marathon that a very long run was not so necessary for another couple of weeks. But who am I to know, i have only done 2 mara's and that was two too many. clinkWell I shall have to have a word with AW about your copy not arriving. Most people I know either couldn't buy one becasue they had all gone or there was just the one copy left. Maybe because it si holiday time they don't print so many as usual. Your 5 miles looked encouraging. Madame OGreat respect earned for your 20 miler yesterday. What : Swimming in the rain today, I think.
A'noon, bit quiet today eh.
Welcome to 41.
Some good training and racing going on
Good 20miler Madame O.
Have a good one
Well done to our Ladies in New Zealand.
NZC - really pleased as punch for you very much deserved
M - You too know the feeling of the shoelace you think shall i carry on or stop and tie
Madame O - Good work on the 20 i do remmember before you started the schedule you had your doubts, seems to be working ok
Birkmyre - Sorry i had to laugh at the Orange Juice
LMUH - Good work Yesterday - shorter doesn't necessarily mean easier does it
Clink - Great run yesterday
Yes yesterdays lyrics were Marina and the Diamonds - I am not a Robot
Yesterdays run did not happen too exhausted/emotional
What: 11 minutes out and back (22:13) 2¼ milesWhy: getting back to fitnessLast Hard: SatLyrics: Not today
Hardest part today was getting out the door pace was 9:51 today quick for me but was working on form a little today, picking feet of the floor always stunning the effect it has on pace
very quiet on here these days. I guess that's august and holiday time.
clink - good long run from you there
Dustin - sorry you are struggling. Well done to the kids though. Great that they are interested.
Pammie - you need to look after yourself and just run because you want to. Don't stress too much.
ceal - thanks for the email.
Well done the NZ crew!
What: a very wet 20+ mins, plus strides and stretchesWhy: didn't want to get wet, but got fed up with waiting around for the sun to come out...it started raining before 10 and hasn't stopped yet (over 8 hours later). This is called "summer" in the north-west. Pleased to note that the hose pipe ban was lifted last week. Has rained pretty well every day since St. Swithin's day...must work out when 40 days are up.
Dustin: I might struggle to do 4:05 for 1000 metres these days, so sounds promising. Key thing at the age is keeping interest and having fun. Performing well always helps!
Today:what: 3m wu + 10x800m (2:36 avg) /w 60s standing rest. + 2m cdwhy: Club ran LT repeats. Had already done a 3x2m LT session last thursday, so ran it in VO2Max pace instead (a bit short rest to be comfortable).last hard: Saturdays progressive long run (6m + 6m@6:00/m + 3m).last rest: Recovery run last friday (10k@7:30/m)
