Traceywell done - excellent pacing!!
I did some decorating instead.
Folk may notice that I have HR data!! An email awaited my return from Garmin detailing how to re set the HRM
Please try resetting the HRM devices by:
1. Remove the battery compartment cover.
2. Remove the battery and replace upside down and allow to sit upside down for 30 seconds.
3. Remove the battery and replace right side up.
4. Replace battery compartment cover.
Please then try pairing your device in the main menu while wearing this accessory.
nice surprise to see Ceal posting about a run!!I hope it was on even ground and the frost was not still in the surface??Yup - HR is just where it always is after a long layoff despite bouncing!!Fingeres crossed there is no reaction in the achilles
Did you have the soup spoons out???
Your story of g'daughter reminded me that Matilda came last week all prepared with a design for an Easter cake that she wanted to make with G'ma.all went well until decorating it. Matilda wanted some soil for the flowers to be mounted on. G'ma said "you can't put soil on a cake, it's dirty" Matilda replied with all the world weary gravity that a six year old can bring to explaining things to oldsters "G'ma you don't understand, it's a technical term for dry material that looks like soil. I think we'll use grated chocolate" - and she did!!
Cealpity about the masseuse!!As I said I was quite pleased with the Parkrun result but yesterday.....................
Anyway up recovery run this morning.6.3 miles in 53:40 (8:50m/m) and avHR130 (65%WHR) and a max of 140
1m 9:46 av120 max 134 difficult getting going2m 8:29 av124 max 1343m 8:41 av129 max 1374m 8:26 av130 max1385m 9:01 av135 max140 Hipps Hill6m 8:44 av133 max136.3m 2:32 av135 max138
HR shows no sign of the tiredness so aerobic devlolpment coming along quite nicely - just need the legs to catch up!!!
TS, looking very good after your good park run followed by a 15-miler. And then another 6 miles this morning. I'm feeling a bit sick as I've left it just too late to get a ticket for the match against Lisbon on Thursday. It's on the telly but not the same. Wasn't expecting a sell-out, at least so soon.
ceal, it must have been a great feeling to be out running again but I bet you were very nervous about feeling anything. You haven't mentioned a reaction so fingers crossed.
Grahamthanks - it's a good block of training when viewed like that.
Shame about the tickets - I guess everyone went out after the match yesterday and bought them on the wave of euphoria after that late, late goal.Long time since I have seen a player (or a manager!!!) so pleased to score, genuinely pleased not relieved, and a nice touch when Cisse went back to the crowd after the final whistle and presented his shirt to a youngster where he had celebrated with them.
Cealyes excellent result in the Davis Cup - I had feared, or expected, the worst when they went two games down on day one.
ceal, I'll be doing about 40 mph pace in the motorhome! Mark runs anything between 9 and 13 minute miles. I'm the only driver until the last couple of days of my two weeks so will have little chance of running with him before then. I'd have to run out and then back to the motorhome, which obviously restricts me a bit. In any case, I suspect I'll have my hands full, being the only person with Mark most of the time.
TS, yes, I thought that late win would result in a rush for tickets. I had the match on the radio and traumatised the cat by yelling at the top of my voice when the goal went in.
A most hectic time for you around the weekend then! Don't know how you cram it all in, climbing ladders and decorating, even swimming, and the high quality of running
Seems you have a similar squeezed in start in your park run as we do. Despite 3 other venues for 5k fans to pick from on Saturday a.m. Hallam still had 367 lining up so several seconds were lost before crossing start line.
Excellent age percentage for you with that parkrun time. Wish I could get near 25 never mind 22 Graham,Geordies should escape the drop if they can keep this up. Hope Lisbon will bring success !
Ceal, Glad you managed to break the spell and get a run in. Hope your achilles gives no more trouble for you.
The parkrun time was my best this year, albeit only by seconds but still....9.55,9.279.03,1.02First in 70/74 out of 2. Age % 63.7 position 277 out of 367.Had in mind to just keep below the 30 min mark as I still need to start on intervals first before I can chop much more off.
Today saw me on a more rugged route via undulating x-c trail followed by a mile long climb behind the ski-slope before descending on loose stony pot-holed downwards with scree at bottom portion followed by an easier flattish finish for the last mile and half.Therefore times look unconvincing! 12.55, 11.31, 12.28, 10.54, 10.59. 5 miles in all. Must say I needed hillwork so it was good to feel the struggle
Doh! Forgot....29.27 was 5k time.
Lunch in London yesterday with elder son and his other half who are expecting their first child in October. That will be our fifth grandchild but never mind, it's only money. Lunch was here http://www.trinityrestaurant.co.uk/index.php/about-us If anyone's interested it was the Sunday lunch menu only.MrsJJ has come down with a severe bug so I've not had time to take off my Nurse JJ uniform and get out for a plod. Tomorrow maybe.NZCJJ's tuna is special. The little blue bits give it an added dimension.You will be OK in the marathon so long as you start sensibly.CealWith my Chairman's hat on I sent out a letter explaining the winter had made everything late or dead so would everyone try their hardest to enter at least one item. The response was excellent. We had about two thirds of the normal exhibits. Quality was not exciting but it looked OK.Any reaction to the outside run?TraceyThanks.Good pace judgement this morning.TSMy marathon post should be encourageing. I ran it on the basis of several fast 1/2m races and two 18 mile runs. That's hardly proper preparation but I was only trying to beat 4 hours.
JJ - I'll try to put my sensible hat on then. That was a great marathon time you did, and it seems you got it just right.
Ceal - good to see you out there trying your legs again.
Torque Steer - now I think you are just showing off Nice set of training put together - well done. And all the stuff around the house - good work.
Impey - nice result from you too, and a good hard 5 miler too.
Graham - how many days does he think it is going to take him? Do you do massage too? And are you are good cook?
I ran 6km in Cornwall Park last night. Very nice, we have just put our clocks back, so a nice cool evening.
Ceal - great that you got out for a run!
The lump on the Achilles, - what is it a lump of? - What sort of tissue, I mean?
TS - LOL at Matilda's patient technical explanation to her grandmother!
5.08M; 1:06:26.4; 13:04/M; 4°C
Started off slow, the next mile went even slower, then they speeded up mile on mile to the end, and it started to rain.
