hiya horse doing well and may come home tomorrow!
did 8 miles yesterday.. ish.. no garmin so no real idea of how far or what time. Kinda enjoyed that! Intervals today!
that's great news Bootsie!
@Slowkoala - i've tried a headlamp but i've not found one I like. I'm going out tonight after work to see how I get on! here's begging that it's not too icy out there.. :/
*cough cough* as someone mentioned it earlier and at the risk of being told to bugger off
MY GREAT MARATHON RACE THINGY
bootsie - that's great news about your horse
Slowkoala - no, I tend to run where it's street lit in the dark. I've just bought a head torch but haven't used it.
Hi goldbeetle - looks lovely but not for me, I'm strictly road. I'm sure you might be able to tempt somebody on this thread.
Goldbeetle - You're hopeless plugging will get you everywhere I would like to tell everyone that i'll be gracing this race... i've heard that there's a cracking beer at the finish
@Shades - how did the car get on?
@Big_G - You are correct. I'm an IT Project Manager, too I'm managing the deployment of our product at clients and focusing on the end to end requirements etc. Luckily, I don't develop - I just do the project work. Recently i've been given the 'difficult' ones so it's more crap handling than i'd like but it's all experience.
As i'm off to Frankfurt for the day (hello, Christmas Markets...) I ran 5 miles after work... considering how tired I thought I felt - i knocked out another PB.... someone needs to have a look at my legs - there's something not right here
Has anyone heard from Khani? or Molly?
Emmy you are quite right we have beer, cider and now, my almost famous Lemonyvodkacello which I have to bring along thanks T.Mouse et al.
Big G - I'm still with you on the December streak too, but I haven't done much more than 5 miles a day as being cautious with a niggle in my foot. However I think I'll start to increase the mileage tomorrow, only by a mile or so.
Emmy - car is fine, passed it's MOT but needs some work done in the next couple of months and a couple of new tyres. I've spent very little on this car in the 6 years I've had it so can't complain really.
running going pants cause of sick horse! Supposed to be doing intervals at lunchtime today but need to leave work early to pick my lady up from hospital and bring her home. Will try and get out this evening depending on what time and stress levels when i get back!
intervals done, last 200m at 6:08 min mile!
bootsie - you'll be glad to get your horse home.
Big G - let's hope we don't get any ice otherwise I'll have to get down the gym and as yet I've never run on a treadmill
You probably run more miles than you drive in your car.
Re cars, my car is going back to the garage on Friday as I discovered this morning that they'd failed to wash it and hoover the inside. Car valeter has had a bollocking from his boss and my car will be collected on Friday for a valet then returned to me later
Slowkoala - LOL at the idea of buying new kit!
I have a gym membership and plan to start going back on a regular basis now that I'm home for the next few weeks and have no races. But I only intend to use the treadmill if it's too icy to run outside.
Slowkoala - that's a typo in my notes. Where I've typed 'less' it should say 'plus', sorry I haven't got round to fixing it.
I was looking at the McMillan pace calculator today and the paces are just too fast, as a temporary measure until I find a good alternative I've added 30 secs to the lower end pace for the long runs. e.g McM says 7.58 to 9.14, I'm suggesting 8.30 to 9.30 min/miles.
For easy runs I'm adding 10 secs to the lower pace and restricting the range to 30 secs e.g. 7.53 to 8.55, I'm suggesting 8.25 to 8.55 min/miles.
Does that make sense?
