Mick6 - Who's this putting flower paintings on here - and not even his own I'll wager.
It does brighten the place up though.
Ran 3.1 miles today in just over 31 minutes including a stop for a good cough.JJ
Impey - You and I are the same height but I weigh nearly half a stone more! 2 seconds per mile faster, isn't it, for every 1 lb lost (other things being equal)?
No running today; yesterday's 7 miles must have tired me out, I didn't wake this morning until 8.40!
5.15M; 1:07:09.3; 13:03/M; 7°C
Easy does it.
Ceal - thank you very much for the comments on kettlebell work, - you are a mine of useful information! I have just searched back and printed out your posts about the "power triad".
You gave me some pf exercises previously (probably about 3 years ago!) - or maybe it was via a reference - but I'll have another look at the ones you have provided for Mick, and may print those out too. That being said, my pf "issues" seem to have disappeared as mysteriously as they came.
Going swimming later, - first swim of the year, as the pool was closed over the holiday.
Ceal,Thank you very much for the exercises. I have already loaded them on to my Kindle Fire and will be off to the gym to give them a try. I know I would not be able to remember them without the Kindle.
aws,Definitely not my work but still eye catching in its simplicity.
The weather, although very pretty, lots of blue sky and snow, is not great for running outside yet again. So I will be indoors on the treadmill. It is -19c and we had a day of snow yesterday so all the paths and roads are snow covered. That is on top of the hard ice that was left over from the two snow storms we had over the holidays.The temperature is due to go up above freezing this week which should allow me to run outside as the salt should have a chance to work.
I've run nearly half as many times as I did last year! Once last Friday with our absolute beginners group and once on Sunday with one of the beginners. About 4 miles in total, so also on the way to half of last year's mileage. Knee ok.RS tomorrow.
Mick - your temperatures do seem to see-saw: -19 today but expected to get above freezing later in the week!
K2 - knee ok, that is very good news.
Been swimming. Pool was lovely and empty, had it almost to myself. But forgot to take swimming goggles so had to manage without. Asked one of the Leisure Centre people about individual swimming lessons; he knows someone who might do it, and is going to ask. Apparently they've been trying for ages to get someone to do lessons for adult learners and improvers, but without success.
Dull, dreary and drizzling all day. Two dog walks, some stretching and static exercises and a hair cut. Completed my 2011/2012 tax return; HMRC owes me £3.Chairing a meeting tonight.JJ
Ceal,Most useful info you gave us on stretching and strengthening. Shame I don't have a printer anymore, mine gave up the ghost a long time ago!
Columba,Conversely, maybe we run 2 seconds per mile slower on each pound gained I know I felt slower after Christmas but that was also due to too many days break.
Had a satisfying run today, and was able to put a bit more wellie into the middle miles. It's first time for nearly 4 months since I did a triple 9s in training.
Mile laps... 11.43 warmup as per, 9.56, 9.55, 9.35, 10.25, and 10.55 pace for 0.6m. total 5.6 miles.
Have you thought what you might do with all that £3 if they deigned to send it
JJ - do you expect to run faster now you've been streamlined by the haircut?
Sunburst over Ullswater
Aws - lovely picture. I love that effect, when there are sunbeams coming through clouds.
Impey - could you use the facilities at your local library to print out Ceal's exercises?
Raining here. Will be going out with the running club this evening, sporting my new head-torch (courtesy of Father Christmas) and my Garmin which is just back from refurbishing.
