Grey, cold morning but a lovely sunny afternoon so I was tempted by a potter round the lanes. Did 3.7 hilly miles at a bit over 10 minute miling. Hope no-one noticed a couple of walks on some steep bits.BusbarThat's a perfectly good run for a comebackDiana5k on a bike is a rest day. To get the equivalent of a run you need 3 to 4 times the distance or time on a bike. MickThe 1k reps look good to me. Correct HR too.JJ
Mick6-Those 1k reps look pretty good to me as well.
JJ-Have to admit i walked on the last hill of my run,i just ducked of road into the horse trails so i wasnt seen hopefully.
NZCa 20km bush hike doesn't sound too relaxingPleased the holiday went so well - how were the concerts you were going to?Just don't go away for two weeks...........................
Mick6Big effort in those reps - and four of them as well!!! Got the HR just where is should be as well
JJ/Busbarthe good thing about this weather is that there are no bystanders around to witness any dwawdling on the hills
Cealit's only semi serious - the really serious stuff starts next month - can't wait
Here is an up date on thehard racing 80's style I posted earlier. It features a clip from a road race in 1981 on a course I knew well from Gateshead Stadium along the banks of the Tyne. I don't feature in the clip as it only concentrates on the front runners and they were moving quite quickly!!!Mick McCleod mentions it was his 3rd race in 5 weeks.......................
I am off tomorrow for some pampering at Linden Hall Hotel and spa up in Northumberland for a few days. May have to eat and drink a bit as well.............
Morning all-nice and bright the sun is out hooray!
Ceal-Surprisingly i was not to bad,just took a hot bath and that seemed to help.
JJ, I realise that 5k on a bike is hardly anything, and did plan it as a recovery from the running if it's too much to do every day.
Training with the club was out on the Forest last night, for the first time this season. Pyramids round the cricket pitch plus warm-up (though I didn't really) and cool-down. I got home in the light! Bitterly cold wind though.
Sunny but with a cold wind again today. The conservatory is wonerfully warm though.
Enjoy the days away, TS. We are off to Cambridge on Thursday for a wedding. We decided to stay 3 nights and see the sights too. My parents were married in Queens College chapel in 1950, so that will be a port of call. Hope to get to Eley cathedral too.
Christine, pleased you had a nice holiday. Margaret's been busy booking accommodation for our Australia trip in November. We both like B & B rather than hotels and there seem to be plenty of good ones, at a price of course.
Ceal, looking at my running diary, the weather two years ago was quite hot. Needless to say it wasn't this year - barely above feezing. Both days had a slight unadvantageous wind, but nothing to speak of. Results not out yet.
I actually sat outside for a cup of tea yesterday. It was only 4 degrees but in the sun and out of the wind it was OK.
North Tyneside 10K results are just out. I was first M60, although the first M65 was quite a bit ahead of me.
Graham,Enjoy your win, there is always someone faster if you look hard enough, just don't look. Well done.
An easy recovery run for me today, 10.5k.
We may have another addition to the family in the next week or so. Another Westie from the Westies in Need Rescue group. He is 4 years old and was a stud at a puppy mill. He is a bit timid but is recovering very quickly. We have a meet and greet this weekend to see if he will get on alright with the other two. I know three dogs sounds a lot but we have a lot of space.
It's so cold today in the strong wind. Cba to run so it's a rest day.CealMy runs don't qualify as serious. It's still only running when, where and how I fancy.I don't understand. What's all this humping and getting caught on the rebound.TSI'm dawdling on the flat as well - for all to see. Is Linden Hall a carrot juice, pilates and ice baths place? I suppose a scandinavian masseuse or two would compensate.GrahamThe M65 shows how quick you'll be in the future. Good result.DianaHave a nice trip. Cambridge is worth a look.JJ
Not a cloud in the sky when I went out just after 9am, but it was still a bit brrrr!
5.11M; 1:06:07.1; 12:56/M; -0.5°C
Includes a negsplit of 7secs! Wey hey!
Has anyone heard from Empty? It seems he lasted posted on Christmas Day and we haven't had anything from him since.
Tracey-Garmin issues are the last thing you need before your marathon.Think my next watch will be a polar like i had a few years back,although it was not gps then.
