OH - are you banned or is it because of being on call?
Straycelt - www.stuweb.co.uk
DD - pleased enough though need to find some speed to go with the endurance.
Alehouse - doesn't sound like much else you can do.
sweep - not too bad a hangover then?
You are right about chickadeee Alehouse, hope she was well enough to run.
I obviously can't push hard enough to hurt myself at the minute as legs a re fine today, could happily have run again if sensible head hadn't have been in place.
Good Sunday to you all.What: 5k round the park.Why: First run in my new neighbourhood! Beautiful day for it too.Last hard: Quite a hilly park.Last rest: Yesterday.Lyrics no.
Good going alehouse! Yep much too nice for staying indoors.
Ok - Gosport 1/2 Marathon
The culmination of 16 weeks training aiming for a sub 85 min time, all to plan with with arrival and warm up, and the conditions were perfect, clear skies with a crispness in the air, no gloves or extra clothing required.
The aim was to stick around 6:25mm and not get carried away... overall this was achieved and knew by 10m that all I had to do was stay calm and relaxed. I would do my normal type report, but wa sso foucused that really cannot remember too much other than running my own race and on the switch backs supporting club mates and others that I knew.
I went through 10k in under 40 mins, about 39:15 give or take, half way in 41:55 (again give or take) through 10m at 1:03:59 and then the finish in 119th place in 1:23:56, smashing my PB by 2 mins and 3 Secs from Solent 5 weeks ago (which was undulating - where as todays race was flater than a flat thing) so was only 5 secs or so slower than the first half.......
Really chuffed and even more so with my splits which averaged 6:25mm overall.
1m - 6:242m - 6:173m - 6:224m - 6:205m - 6:266m - 6:267m - 6:278m - 6:219m - 6:2310m - 6:2911m - 6:2612m - 6:2913m - 6:23.1m - 0.37
Great goody bag too, plus most of our club runners also got PB's so well done all round.
Great Day and 1 main target for the year achieved........... a sub 85... did it in style with a sub 84....
Thanks LMH...I could get a job as a pacer!Great guns RFJNew pb AHBeen to gym, handbike, bike and stepper...no run. TKD to come
Nice one, RFJ! More to come I suspect! WHat are your next racing plans? Am I right that your 10k is due a revision too?
Rest Day as usual on a Sunday.
Catch up soon.
Wow, what a great weekend for racing. Well dones (in no particular order) to LMH, straycelt, sweep and RFJ . Hope you guys are all pleased with your results. They look much better than mine ... epic fail today . I ran a PW by 6 minutes . Well, I felt rotten but not rotten enough to can it. But my HR told me in no uncertain terms that today was not going to happen. Time was 50:54 and I had a hard time trying to keep that HR in check. Blimey. Last month I ran a flippin marathon a lot quicker than that and it felt easy. Amazing what an off day can do to your perfomance. Oh well, not too despondent about the whole thing. It wasn't an A race and I have 4 more of these, one each month. So I hope to redeem myself in December .The good news is: I feel really good now. Almost as if I managed to sweat the whole thing away ... my throat is fine, my nose no longer blocked and the achey bones thingie has gone too. Strange or what?
chickadeee - glad you have at least one positive from your run!
Alehouse - you've set a benchmark now
Well done RFJ - what do you attribute your progress to?
GGG - are you all settled in now?
LMH - sucess is down to not running a marathon this year and backing off from it, thats been hard... but also introducing threshold training rather than out and out speed work has helped.
Well done to you (LMH) Straycelt, and Sweep
Chickadee - sorry to hear it did not work out
Ale - 10k is 37:32 so would be a tough one to crack, did go through today in 2nd fastest time for 10m though.........
VLM will be the next big challange with various 10km and 10m races along the way.... plus a 20m or 2 but likely to use the later as trg runs rather than races.
