Fantastic Emmy well done.
Slowkoala depends what you want from the watch, the 110 has no set up will record your distance, pace and some do heart rate, the 210 has a few more options and also has the option to use indoors. I have the 305 also fantastic watch, but probably only use half of the functions. when i am running all i really want to see is my heart rate, pace and agv pace, i do enjoy looking through all the data on my pc when i get back though.
Khanivore, dare i say it is a bit silly to run 18 miles after being injured for 3 weeks, i know you did a coupkle of 5 milers first but at the time you posted that i felt you may be doing a bit to much to soon.
@Khani - I agree with S3200H. You've not been off the injury bench for long... take it easy.
Here's my race report from the Enigma Winter Double. I've kept it on my 4.30 thread to avoid spamming lots of other threads with the same story. I feel really great (apart from some soreness...)
hiya hlil reps in reigate I do up the side of priory park.. short enough ones but think its still good!
shades, no marathon plans as yet.. keen to see how the training goes for me .. really can't handle another month long injury this year so just trying to enjoy injury free running and see where it takes me! Races I have lined up are...
kenley 10km - 27th jan
brighton half - 17th feb
Ballycotton 10 - 3rd March
Back to the trenches - 9th march
sussex living marathon weekend - 1st weekend in may
thats all she wrote!
I've not really looked at the Heart Rate Monitors for the Garmin - are these worthwhile?
Hi Emmy, are you using it to just monitor your HR or using your HR to set your running pace and distance etc?
Makes sense, thanks Emmy and congrats on the Enigma Double
Big G - hope the achilles is OK today.
I live in a built up area and my 305 isn't quick to pick up a signal so I put my 305 on the window sill while I'm getting ready for my run and it picks up a signal from there. So I can go straight out the door and run
Sofaboy - ditch those shoes (at least for running) lucky you didn't get injured
Emmy - I shall read your report later, am looking forward to that.
bootsie - what's 'back to the trenches'? sounds like there's some mud involved
KingKenny - I've been running marathons for quite a long time although I don't do as many in one year as mowzer and VR do, so they'll soon catch me up. Most I've done in one year is 25 but I may exceed that this year but only because I have to squeeze quite a few in to hit 300 byt 11th August.
Rattler - HRM on 305 is very good, has been more reliable than previous HRM's I've used
Nykie - re your long runs that is absolutely fine to split your run like that.
Another lovely mild morning.
Good news, I've had my holiday leave approved for my trip to the IOM, but my colleague doesn't seem pleased, even though she can take the same time off
Shades - good news about your holiday I wonder why your colleague is displeased...seems odd. Oh well, at least you've had it approved!
My achilles seems fine this morning - a little bit tight, but no pain. I'll do stretches today, and will do a slow 5-miler tomorrow presuming that the pain stays away.
Emmy - Wow! Congratulations!!, an amazing achievement and I really enjoyed reading your report. I much prefer running a circular route and find laps hard going so to do TWO consecutive marathons of laps unbelievable. What a great start to your year!
After a good week last week I have been struck down with sickness bug (I just LOVE my children). Feeling better today but too weak to do scheduled 16k. Hate rearranging my planned runs as have organised distances/times around work and family committments and the head space that takes to rearrange defeats me sometimes. Good news is that I have lost weight
Excellant news for your time off work Shades!
Thanks Shades. Your colleague sounds jealous. As though she was trying to scupper your 300th marathon timing by requesting holiday.
after my slightly abortive LSR on sunday and a more competetive than usual session of squash last night I've now got seriously achy legs. both Hamstrings feel pretty tight (possibly due to excessive lunging for little rubber balls), as does my right calf.
supposed to have a 5 mile easy tonight, but might do it at LSR pace and see how it goes. thankfully, living in a little village, i can't really head out into the countryside in the dark. so i'll never be more than a mile or so from home should i need to bail.
lots of mud shades! its a military thing i thought i would give a go for a laugh! thankfully just after ballycotton so any injuries should be manageable if i slip
Emmy - wow! Amazing work! Will read your report later but your consistency on those two marathons was amazing. Lots and lots and lots of training all paid off!
Shades (and others) - I realise 18 miles was too far I seem to have got lucky as I am feeling 100% now. Any time that tendonitis flares up I just do a quick stretch and it's fine again. I don't think that was made worse by my long run - i think that will be here for a while, until I take a couple of months off from running according to what I have read. I can manage it with stretching in the mean time.
Will go for normal 5 mile easy pace run and get back on plan. I won't do tempo's for 3 weeks as per Shades's instructions (unless Shades tells me it is ok to do so before then). My LSR for next Sunday will be kept down to 15 miles and only if I continue to be pain free.
Did 6.5 miles at 8.50 pace this morning, not sure I do mid-week morning runs well but was comfortable. Had to drop the car of for MoT, so ran the long way back.
And trying to find a flat run for my tempo run this week is proving tricky - didn't realise how many hills there were in Surrey
