aws"foam rollers" are they?Your underfoot conditions sounded dire
Columbathanks - hills must be overcome though I am not very good at them yet - not enough leg strength.
NZCI am a bit like the member of your pack on your long run - not gone over 10 miles!! Fortunately I have quite a bit longer than 12 weeks to build up .So you have another marathon lined up ?
This morning brought 1" of fresh snow and cold conditions so it was quite pleasant to run on if a bit slippy in places. Tired legs from yesterday so took it cautiously for 5 miles in 44:29 (8:49m/m) with avHR 131 (66%WHR) and a max of 144
1m 9:32 120 1352m 8:35 128 1373m 8:39 134 1394m 8:26 133 1395m 9:12 140 144 Hipps Hill - I gave in gracefully
Helped to back up yesterday's run and in fact I probabluy now need some more runs at a steady pace to help change the metabolism a bit so that more fat burning takes place earlier. Pleased with HR on this run though fatigue shows in the last mile!!
Hi all Just a quick look in before i go to physio for some treatment.and shed a few pounds sterling.
Some good running going on by everyone very impressive.
Not sure when i can resume training.i may get a ansewr today,as i am getting bored now. Will pop back later.
TS - It'll be the surfactant that does it.
Columba - It is the sand.
Good afternoon Back from physio and i have another appointment wednesday.Totally forgot to mention how long it would be before i started training againThis is because i was talking about the olympics and if he had any involvement at thegames.
Busbaryour physio sounds as chatty as mine Ditto Ceal's query?
Cealkettlebells are getting a hammering!!!Any more time on my feet and I'll fall over with exhaustion But, yes I can happily run at that sort of pace for maybe 15 miles but thereafter it may become as struggle. Fortunately I have some fat stores to call on................
ceal,It seems that a lot of medical tests are triggered by age, so when I hit 65, my doc scheduled them all in at no cost to me.The medical system here is creaking just as it is in the UK. We do have the advantage that if you don't want to wait you can quickly schedule any tests you like just south of the border. All you need is money.
TS,What does your mileage ramp up look like and what do you expect to peak at? You have 12 weeks which sounds a loing time but if you haven't done that kind of mileage in a long time, it can seem very short.
I finally got a chance to run outside today for a 10.6k recovery run. We had snow over night so it was a bit slippery but it was warm, -7c. The temperature is expected to rise all day with freezing rain starting this afternoon so tomorrows outdoor run is in jeopardy.
busbar - hope the physio can sort out your problem.
Ceal - good to see you are enjoying your kettlebell workouts.
Aws - agree with Ceal - amazing that you got out in those conditons! Nice painting btw
Torque Steer - you seem to be able to back up your faster running. If I run harder/longer/faster one day, I'm down to a crawl on the next day.
Rotorua marathon is on 4th May - I have to finish it to become a "survivor". To become a survivor you have to have run 15 Rotoruas. My first one was in 1978! So I intend finishing it even if I have to crawl!
I ran 7km at Cornwall Park yesterday - very hot though windy, and not very fast!
Tracey - good long run - which marathon are you running?
Traceywell done on another long run safely completed - tough conditions for you and Bernard!!
NZCYou will survive!!!!!!It was a bit of a struggle today but I was wearing Mr Sensible hat - not often I do that - and 5 miles was the sensible limit. However 3 weeks ago 3 miles was the limit so there is some progress
MIck6as Ceal says I have more time - 250 days 13 hours and 43 minutes to be exact -before the start line looms It is NZC that only has 12 weeks - and 12 summer weeks at that!!
Sorry i forgot to reply what the physio said,my first visit was last saturday and basically said it was a overuse problem.After initial examination he said it he didnt think it was to serious and should take about 5 treatments.With that i lay on my backwith knees bent and he applys some leads that give you needles and pins sensation.To be honest the last physio i had was about 10 years ago so i am a bit in the darkwith the procedure.
Today the same leads to start with and then what he called bio treatment i think which supposed to get calcium to muscles but dont know if i am right in saying that.Booked in to have another treatment on wednesday,So he's saying not to serious,but any comments would be appreciated.
Impressive running going on all round except for Busbar. Hope it won't be long before you get to run again, Busbar
Marg bought me a couple of kettlebells for my birthday and I haven't used them yet. Will have to select some appropriate exercises !
I am back to 3 days running every week though I didn't report the last two outings as it wasn't much worth mentioning. At any rate, it's getting better.Today despite wearing 5 (yes 5!) top layers as it was perishingly cold (me wimp!) I was surprised at my 3rd and 4th mile paces.12.20 warming up, 10.49, 10.22, 10.11 and 11.25. Total 5.3 miles
Still got problems posting anything without the Nike advert taking over.No response yet from RW.TSExcellent run.If I didn't know better I'd say the cold weather is the cause of the shrinkage.ImpeyI started feeling the winter cold last year and I'm feeling it this winter too. It was never a problem before.and just meant an extra layer.NZCI bet you make the 15 target without even walking.busbarNot sure where the calcium fits in. That's for bones not soft tissue damage.JJ
Really impressed at TS's speed abd determination, and Tracey's (and Bernard's!) long runs.
I suppose, if one did crawl over the finishing line on hands and knees, it would still count as finishing.
Smattering of snow here first thing. Soon disappeared locally but remained on the surrounding hills all day.
Went swimming. As the individual swimming teacher still hasn't got back to me, I asked about group lessons, and apparently some have just started in Rhayader (of "round-the-lakes" fame) which is only 8 miles away. I have a phone number to call.
