5km done last night in 24 mins 16.. i know i can get under 24.. i will do it!!
interval training with Shireen today.. trying to gear up mentally to the pain!
I keep getting confuse between you and Big G!
Have a look here. One of the RW team is running 12 marathon in 12 days and looking for people to run with. As London is easy for me - I thought about the last leg(s). Are you interested maybe?
Emmy - different shoes for day too, run easy and an out and back route for Day2 will help as you know once you've turned for home that you'll be fine.
Refuel well after Day 1
bootsie - I'm sure sub 24 mins is yours very soon
I'll tak e a look Emmy!
7 * 45 seconds with decreasing rest periods from 45 seconds down to 10 seconds then back up again so 14 all in ! managed 1.58 miles in 10 mins 42 seconds.. happy with that!
Another evening run for me today grrr and then i'm taking it easy until my first TWENTY mile run on Sunday! Eeeeeeek! Hope the weather is ok or it's going to be a miserable and very very long run
From next week I am going to run 5 days a week. I have not been doing the optional days so far. However, I love my food as you all know and on days I run I can eat more basically
I was toying with the idea of alternating between 1600m intervals (with 800m jogs) and hill repeats from week to week on my extra day of running. However, people are telling me that doing more easy miles will be a bigger benefit for me than intervals. What do you think Shades?
@Bootsie - if you're interested - it would be great to run with you.
@Khani - 20 miles already?! Woah - you're an early starter!
Emmy I can't!! i'm back in ireland from the 20th
Khanivore - you shouldn't be increasing the distance of your long runs and starting intervals at the same time. So for now, focus on distance and improving your endurance and aerobic fitness. There is plenty of time to do some sharpening later on by introducing some short speedy stuff.
eat to run/run to eat - lots of folk run so they can eat more or less what they want
mowzer - are off to Italy tomorrow?
I have to be at VR's house at 3.59 a.m. on Saturday morning as we have an early start
oh dear I was trying to paste the weather for Florence on Sunday but it's all a bit mixed up.
Best of luck to Shades, VR & Mowzer. The weather should be ideal and I hope you have a brilliant time. Italians will say "In bocca al lupo" which means good luck and you reply by saying "Crepi" and they'll be amazed at your knowledge of Italian
I'll be sat on the settee watching the race and hoping to catch a glimpse of you!
I love Florence - lovely city. Haven't been there since I was a student mind
Shades - i took on board what you said and am leaving interval training out of it. By the way I signed up for another half marathon. So, I am doing half marathon in feb, half marathon in march, and full marathon in April. They are all almost exactly one month apart
