Well done you on pb'ing the 10k after 6 years had elapsed. Must be a better age grading by far.
Good determined walking as a temporary way of keeping the fitness up.
JJ,Talking of stiff legs (one of your earlier posts)..... I get that effect even on alternate days running. I don't seem to benefit by training on consecutive days anymore !
Didn' t go on the Parkrun Saturday but marshalled and did backup barcoding. Later in day ran for 5 miles.....11.53, 10.52, 10.50, 10.56, 11.35.
Today.....another 5. Was pestered by a small young dog which was keen on running with me but getting too playful around my feet. Had to pause as I didn't fancy tripping over him. The owner eventually got control of the pup. Bless him !That is reason for slower 3rd mile.11.27, 10.50, 11.23, 10.40, 11.01
ImpeyOne of my ancient club colleagues has simplified this Over-70 training problem. He reckons you have to get out there and just do what you can.He may well be right to take the unscientific route. JJ
Wednesday is 11/12/13. I think it's the last numerically sequenced date this century. JJ
JJ,Not if you live in NA. 12/13/14.
More snow today so I ran in and on it for 8k. Very slow but still enjoyable as it was not cold -3c. Worked out in the gym after with 45 heel extensions on each foot, 60 squats, 45 bridges etc.
JJ - Well spotted, I hadn't seen 11/12/13 coming up. You're right about it as next year is 14 and we don't yet have a month 13, after that the problem just gets worse.
The Yanks might manage it with their daft arrangement of mm/dd/yy.
I have been lurking on here for a while and have finally decided to post. i am just starting back after man flu and injury and did 2.71 miles in 27.48. I have run a couple of marathons in the past but am concentrating on shorter distances for the moment.
WD60welcome, it's a lot better than lurking Looks like we share a first name as well.Man flu is dreadful, and I will be supported in that by all the blokes on here, so it must be good to be finally to be able to get out and run again.Tell us a bit more about yourself - when were your marathons and other notbale runs and what part of the country are you from? We are pretty widely spread geographically - from New Zealand via Canada and more local Uk spots!!
I'm not running at the moment - awaiting an operation on a nsty herniated disc that is causing some grief but that doesn't stop me joining in on here!!
