MikeI think you were faster than you thoughthttp://www.thepowerof10.info/results/results.aspx?meetingid=60422&event=5M&venue=Portsmouth&date=16-Sep-12
StevieTom P sounds to be a very good person. It's a pity our runners don't follow the same schedule, according to Michael Johnson any of our runners could compete with the Kenyan's if they did the same training.
I am out of here now, being both tired and hungry.
Ceal/Mike - well done on your 5 mile races.
Mike - I bet you did get a bit of a hurry up if you heard Ceal was right behind you!
Ceal - I love how you guys have the powerof10 website, it really must motivate you. We only have this sort of thing for the seniors/juniors, and of course if you are a fast young vet you might be able to get into those rankings.
It must be so pleasing to click on your name and see all your achievements at a glance.
Columba - the pipeline is a track in the bush that carries the main water pipe, it is clearly visable at times. The track is gravel and wide enough for runners to be able to pass each other going one way or the other.
Thanks for the well-dones, as you know it is always a bit of a flat down period after a marathon, and Mae is rearing to go!! Took her for a short walk yesterday, think she'll be wanting a bit more today.
CealGreat result. Very well done indeed. 5 miles is a nice distance.My first XC is 6/10.EmptyYou must be very happy with that time on such reduced training and no racing. I certainly would be.JJ
Three new windows get installed tomorrow.JJ
Ceal - Brilliant as ever; special congrats on top W70. I'm not showing my times after reading yours. I'll just go and put my feet up.
awsThanks, but Come on don't be willy (I have typed that word twice now instead of silly so will leave it)! I always read your run splits with interest. today, I am being denied from doing so.
GrahamWhat a beautiful sounding run, I am quite envious.
Everybody else many thanks for well dones. NZCYou thanked us for out well dones, but I expect they are nthing compared with the respect you have gained from completing The Legend race in such a respectabe time. I decided to run this morning, knowing that it is easy to train the day after a race rather than 2 days later. I ran the course of the10k trail race that I am doing on Sunday, plus a tiny bit extra.. So it was 6.8 miles ran easy in 62 mins, av pace 9.16 mm, av HR 120, MHR 131. It was hilly and stony but on the whole my legs felt just fine. I reached the 5 mile mark just under 8 mins slower than yesterday.!
Belated congrats to all on some fine races
Nzc-You are one tough lady well deserved legend status
Ceal-Excellent 5mile time you must be pleased
Empty-Well done on so little training ,hope you can push on from there
Graham-Sounds fantastic scenery,just wish i was there also
JJ-like comment about facebook but don't understand it
Tracey-Have you ever thought about getting the insanity workout?
Columba-Apologies i missed your fantastic hm summary,thats what hapens when i dont keep up with the thread.But a very big well done to you just a full marathon to do now.Glad that you are at a club i am sure it will be beneficial
ceal,great 5 miler time, a good incentive for MT to push his training.
JJ,I hear you but I just don't feel right so I went and sought some professional help.
It appears that I have a urinary tract infection. It is only mild but I am on antibiotics. I am also having lots of blood work done as the doctor was concerned about diabetes even though the urine test did not indicate anything.
Another rest day for me but hopefully I will feel up for an easy run tomorrow.
Back from our Yarmouth staycation holiday, we did plenty of walking and didn't use the car all week ! Have to admit, I didn't do any running, wasn't really bothered to be honest or is that cba ?
Splendid race results from Ceal, Empty and NZC. Remarkable times, well done all of you!Special well done to Mike in doing the 5miler despite feeling not well enough for racing.
Mick6,Hope all will be well soon for you, not been too good for you it seems. The UTI wouldn't have helped I guess. Also hope the blood tests disprove any diabetic problems.
Ran a leisurely( is there such a thing!) 6.2 miles ,. Garmin was almost discharged so most of run was data-less. I reckon pace was around 11m/miling.Entered the Tententen race for this coming Sunday. I know I am not properly prepared for it but will be happy to complete it and I do like to do a 10k occasionally even if 5ks are what I now prefer and stick to mainly.
The thread is ticking along nicely.
Impey, nice to have a holiday that still includes walking, don't think you need to run when you are on holiday, think you come back revived and ready to go.
Mick - so sorry to hear you have been having problems with your health, hope you get on top of it before you travel.
Tracey - good on you working on your core - it's something I always think about but always neglect!
Ceal - great training - you leave no stone unturned - I guess that is why you are so successful.
Aws - you are doing it!
Graham - sounds lovely where you are running.
JJ - bet you will be glad when all this work has been finished.
Went for about an hour's walk with Mae - sure it is not enough for her, will have to take her somewhere where she can run free.
Windows done. Kitchen lights changed to something a bit more up to date. Spare bedroom prepared for wallpapering tomorrow.busbarThere are so many bits of new software that I can't find any use for that I can only assume they have been written in the hope that one day they will be useful for something.MickThe checkup was a wise move. JJ
MickC - in a way it must be a relief to know that there is a good explanation for your having been feeling not-so-good lately especially as far as running is concerned. Hope the diabetes tests come back negative; they probably will.
Tracey - I'm still hoping you'll tell me what girly press-ups are, so that I can see if I can do them.
Good Day,ImpeySounds like a good holiday was had by your both. All the best for your 10k race on Sunday, it can be a good training run if nothing else. Mick6Well that sounds as if all is sorted now. I would be surprised if you have Diabetes, well I hope not anyway. We are all looking ofrward to seeing you next week. Which day do you travel over here?EmptyWhat a shame about Darrell's DNS result. I think he said he ran 45 mins, so I presume he was wearing a watch. JJLots of activity in your house, jobs are getting sorted fast. NZCHow long now until the next marathon?
I found it quite cool out today whilst running. I warmed up for 19:35 mins, 3.5 k av pace 5.35 min per k, av HR 112, MHR 134 then I did 5 x 400's on grass, at around 5k pace with 200 slow jog recoveries (90sec). Although they were most likely a little faster than 5k pace ! But that was the intention and they most certainly weren't flat out. They are just to keep the nervous system stimulated ready for the race at the weekend, which I intend to enjoy. Finished with a few jogs around the cricket pitch giving me a total of 5.36 miles for the session.
