slowkoala - Congrats on reaching your 1,000 milestone, nice speedy tempo run too
well done SlowKoala!! great news!
Tempo run today... did the first 3 miles in 24 mins 44 seconds (quite undulating too! first half of the reigate 10km course) then did the reminder a bit slower and finished 4.5 miles in 37 mins ish I think! Happy out with that
Horrible week here, my beautiful little horse cut her leg quite badly and had to have surgery on wednesday night. She is doing really well but not out of the woods yet so waiting until tomorrow to see if she needs more surgery
Slowkoala - Well done on a 1000 miles. Sounds alot!
Emmy - 18 miles! Good work. I am NOT obsessed with numbers!
I've just come back from a hilly 10 miles with my club. Very cold but fun.
Happy Birthday Big G
Any website to look at Emmy?
Happy birthday Big G
Emmy - Is that easter weekend? Like VR got a link?
bootsie - hope your horse recovers OK
Big G - belated Happy Birthday. RW was broke when I logged on yesterday morning so couldn't post.
Emmy - yes, am doing the December streak, 5 miles yesterday. Haven't been out yet today as we had rain yesterday evening and it's frozen and the roads and pavements look a bit dicey, forecast is to warm up so will go out later.
Well done on your 18 miler in the cold and your subsequent 8 miler!
Slowkoala - that is speedy, I think you have a lot of PB's to look forward to.
I love running every day over the Xmas hols as I'm not at work so more recovery time available. I particularly love running on Xmas morning
I went out yesterday for my birthday and had a few drinks and a nice meal out. I have reduced my alcohol intake a lot recently, so yesterday was an exception to the norm. It was a great day out though, and the meal (King Prawns, chicken in a mushroom sauce with chips and potato gratin and an awesome after-dinner mint cheesecake) and drinks (a few nice ales and some Peroni) went down very nicely. This morning though I felt fine, and I went out and did a fast (for me) 4 mile run in 30min 27secs. This is quite quick for me (7:36 min/mile) but it gives me another target to see if I can under 30mins for that same route over the next few weeks. I enjoyed the run and I guess these are the type of runs I need to do (as well as the LSRs) if I want to get to my 1:45min half marathon goal in March. I enjoyed the run though, and feel invigorated
I'm off out to do the weekly shop now...the worst couple of hours of the whole week
Clag - I know, McMillan has changed his pacing calculations and I think for long runs they are far too fast at the faster end of the pace. It's fine to run the slowest pace for the long run, for some reason everyone thinks they should aim at the fastest advised pace, in fact they shouldn't and would improve more if they aimed for middle or slowest pace advised.
Having no tempo run isn't problem as you still have intervals or hill reps which are a speed session. You can race a 5k every week if you wish as long as you're fit and well, up to you.
Big G - hope you survived the shop, I wouldn't venture food shopping on a Sunday, so busy.
No frost and ice today, lovely.
Car service and MOT today
@Shades - good luck for your car service and MOT.
It's snowing here today. I stepped outside and saw the large amount of ice on the road and decided to be safer. It looks like it caught the council off guard too as they've not gritted any of the roads
How is everyone else getting on?
