Lyrics - Woah-oh-oh-oh
Alehouse - hope the reaction, if there is one, is tiny indeed.
7d - no point in quality at this stage as Alehouse says.
Alehouse - do you think I should go down to one session a day and make that a run or a ride/swim on non-run days until fully recovered? Initial plan for today was an easy swim this morning to loosen the legs (which have been very achey since my first run post-Orkney) and an easy run this afternoon. Agree totally that the running is the important part but not used to just doing that.
You're marathon training aren't you NZC? I think yours is almost the same time as Abingdon - 21st October?
Blisters - great that you can see your swimming improving as you are.
What: short easy swim/pm easy run or just runWhy: see aboveLast hard: not racing yesterdayLast rest: 29/8
Yesterday's lyrics were Lazy Sunday by the Small Faces.
think maybe I know your lyrics LMH...
what: track and swim later
last hard: yesterdays hilly 40 miles on the bike!
Last easy: yesterday afternoons lush bomb bath!
happy monday peeps!
morning all!7d - good 5k/5m races!postie - good stuff, do u have an Abbo target?Wabo - good work on the bikeRFJ - solid PRingSpark - superb debutBlisters - I find with barn dancing its best not to mention it ..... lyric - hmm, maybe , maybe not, possibly not the one LmH is thinking of...Didnt post yesterday, but after Saturdays long run that left the legs knackered, found myself at the track while girls trained....so did mile easy w/up, then 7.25 miles on trails/footpaths at ~7.50 m/miling and found it surprisingly easy going....Today - something short Why - recoverylast rest - 9 dayslast hard - saturdays 2hrs
Wabo: I would have thought the last hard was watching Spurs! Take care at the track: LOTS of stretching and warming up!
LMH: As it is illness ou are protecting in the main, rather than injury, I would certainly do no more than one session a day...indeed, four runs in the week and perhaps little else! However, given you will want to do something else I would make that gentle swims (an opportunity to work on technique, perhaps) and easy biking, just turning the legs over. Another however is that you could risk things, perhaps, if you feel ok and hit September quite hard, and then ease right back from the beginning of October.
Talking of legs, a little tenderness in the Achilles this morning (not calf, thankfully). Will see what physio's view is this pm. Won't be rushing htings, although I want to! I've taken a long time to get to this point so don't want to be wrecking things now!
Lyrics: what Dustin says.
Good news on your legs this morning Alehouse. I shall listen and prioritise the running and save my energy for that and (hopefully) getting over this infection so this week will look something like an hours easy run today; two hour MLR tomorrow, short, easy swim Wednesday before smt then a run on Thursday if I can after I've seen the dentist - hopefully another MLR, rest or 30 minute run on Friday (usually a longer day work wise) and then it will be the weekend again! Sound like a plan?
Nice to have a run easier than expected Dustin.
groan alehouse, I forgot about that, it was absolutely dire!! I will be cycling to the track and do about 4 laps to warm up and probably only half of the session, easy does it!
good news re legs alehouse
Off the see the man this afternoon. Might go to beach for a dip after if i'm able.
Hopefully training commences tomorrow!
Fingers crossed Paddy!
good luck paddy
What: rest after weekendWhy: busy weekend and still dithering whether to try LSR tomorrow.Last Hard: SaturdayLast rest: yesterday (if you discount the 10 miles walking)
30+mph SW forecast for tomorrow (but guess that means I'm unlikely to be doing any kayaking)Paddy - beach sounds good - wherabouts are you based?
Tom - its all coming together!!!Racing wise, doing the Hellrunner (november) but want to give the cross countrys a good go this year, and trying to keep the miles up/ ticking over (average 40+ per week) as pretty sure I'll succumb to an ultra next year. There......I've said it.....
Tee hee, those misheard lyrics made me chuckle. Especially Pammie's small boatman in China!LMH: always a humbling experience when you are out running and encounter somebody that can't. I struggled badly on my log run today when a saw a man who'd obviously had a stroke (his left arm was paralysed and he had trouble with the left leg too) but he was still trying to convince his body to run. That quickly made me forget my own worries! Sorry to read you are not well.Paddy: glad you are de-sulking7D: good to see you dropping back in. Great 5k time! And well done on yesterday's race too.Postie: nice long run and some speedy MP stuff in there!spark: hello and congrats on the GSR.RFJ: that's a speedy junior you have!Tom: great session keeping on! But of course complete pants as recovery run. what: 22 mileswhy: I was hungover yesterday and only managed some miles on the MTBlast hard: I choked on some water today and ended up with a horrible stitch.last rest: can't rememberlyrics: could be anything! The one that springs to my mind is related to football ... I'm probably way off!
What restWhy mondayLyrics could be anything
Blisters My current pb for the marathon is 2:58:35(?) set at London last year. I feel that I am capable of going a bit faster providing I don't get another significant injury. The consultant I saw for my knee suggested that I treat Abo as a "training" run, so to answer Dustin my target for Abo is anything under 3:15 but not to push the knee and target London for between 2:55 and 2:45.
What: lacrosse coachingWhy: new team, but I've been asked to help out with coaching already Last hard: the 15 ish km of yesterday, big hills!
LMH good to see you're being sensibleAlehouse good news!Tom some good work there!
Have a good evening all.
Tom its coming together, Have always said running is a funny ole game (sorry Greavsie) you think nothingis progressing then it surprises you Nice session
Paddy fingers crossedEmzap that sounds fab sounds as if you've settled in, will you be playing squash as well?
What: 3.26 milesWhy: woke late Last Hard a week agoLyrics No
Hey all, thanks for the good words. Kilkenny half-mara cancelled today, got the email at work. £80 on fees and stuff I won't see again. Worse things happen in life but a bit of a kick in the bum.
Good training and work, emzap, postie, Dustin, Tom, chicka. Well earned rest everyone else! Lot of people seem to be going for the bikes at the moment, interesting.
7D Thats a shame did they say why
That's a mega shame, 7d. I take it you have paid flight and accommodation: are you going to use them still? Or will you look for another half nearer home?
