hello all,
great MLR there postie
OH - I couldn't face that sort of journey to race more than once in a blue moon...would love the 4 day (or better still 3 day) week though...if only I could afford it!
yesterday turned into a non got in the way of lunchtime run, and club AGM straight from work. Then had to collect youngest on the way home from swimming meant I was indoors at 9.20. Run or eat?....the belly won.
Today however should have the 2hr window as eldest has hockey, so hopefully something long and steady...
why - I think I'm going to run a marathon
last rest - from running yesterday, from running around, friday
last hard - Tuesday
lyric - dont think so

Wabo - Good luck with the half

Postie - That's some speedy stuff there, what's the mara target?

Cautious as planned on the track yesterday.  800 reps off 90, so I did two easy at 3:25 which were OK; then 2 quicker at 3:15, also OK so a mile cool down and job done.

Track proper this afternoon, but still playing it safe as thigh not fully OK, complete quad stretch is a defninite no-go area!


28/02/2013 at 12:45


What: flying to England
Why: dress fitting for my bridesmaid dress and then the hen do
Last hard: trying to fit everything into hand luggage.
Lyrics: Yes, I love this song.

OH wow that is some commitment for racing!
Chicka 5 mm, if only!

Going to try a run tomorrow and try and get to a parkrun on Saturday (have my bar code in the suitcase!).  Hope I'll have time.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Legs said 'oh go on then, seeing as you asked so nicely' - 21 miles run in a beautiful morning with the last mile being the fastest.

Sounds as though the schedule is going well Wabo.

Hope you get some me time today Dustin.

Sleep well Pammie.

Have a great weekend emzap.

Great running, LMH

Enjoy the hen do, emzap

kayaking course sounds interesting! I'd be terrified of those rolls . Knowing my own clumsiness I'd probably drown ...

40: sounds like the legs are ok again - 3:15 is good for 800s

Pammie/wabo: had my fair share of falling over too ...  if only the winter would go away

what: 15 mile MLR d&d  - split it into 6 x 2.5 miles. Plan was warm-up/steady/MP/steady/MP/cool-down. Worked out as 8:41-- 8:17 -- 7:40 -- 8:01 -- 7:42 -- 7:56. Crikey, I so didn't expect that, but priddy pleased how easy the faster running felt .
why: slow MLRs are booooring
last hard: Sunday
last rest: Monday
lyrics: yep, great song!

28/02/2013 at 15:18

Afternoon, and a beautiful one at that!

Some decent running going on, but not here...

What: 6k walked, off road, undulating,
Why: didn't feel that I could trust my "good" calf, so didn't!

Lyrics: googled, I'm afraid!

28/02/2013 at 15:38

Afternoon! Seems you have different weather on the other side of the Channel! Mainly overcast, still a cold wind biting from the north, though no longer freezing (by daytime).

Nice LSR from LMH.

Dustin: that sort of happened to me yesterday, too. I made up for it today, fortunately. It will make tomorrow's stair session erm... interesting.

What: 5.3M whichever way I got round (mainly running)

Why: didn't do it yesterday

Last hard: Tuesday

Last rest: Wednesday

Lyrics: yes!

28/02/2013 at 17:44

Nice speed chickadeee! What's the target this time round?

Hope tomorrow's stair session isn't too interesting Tinebeest.

28/02/2013 at 18:07

Nice session this early evening after work.

1 mile warm up followed by 6 x 3 mins fast with 2 mins recovery.  In each of the 3 mins, I ran an average of 0.5 miles, each one being just a 10th over or under.  Good consistency.  Pleased with the pace and the shorter recovery.  1 mile warm down too, making 5 in total.  Looking forward to the rest tomorrow again

28/02/2013 at 18:47


What 7.64 with hills
Why Thursdayas = hills
Lyrics no

40 mins aiming for 2:50ish preferably under

Odd day cycled in and ran home. Run in next two days, cycle home Saturday (1.7 miles only).

28/02/2013 at 18:58

Hi all,

Finished early todat, so did what one should do in the daylight... and has a Half on Sunday and in Mara training... = long run... yeap... 17m D&D

Feeling tired but good.... (and very hungry)

28/02/2013 at 19:30

RFJ - nice long mid week run!

Little Miss Happy - congrats on your half marathon PB!

Tom - I see you sneaked in to say hello - what are you up to? Are you running?

alehouse - 6km is still 6km - it wasn't that long ago that you couldn't do anything.

chickadee - your marathon training is going really well - good on you!

emzap - enjoy your time in England.

40 minutes - nice speedwork.

wabo - you're doing really well with your marathon training too!

Dustin - you have a really busy schedule - hope there is enough time to fit a marathon in

birkmyre - lovely song!

What: 16km

Why: Trying to catch up - had the stitches out of my face on Tuesday.

28/02/2013 at 20:11

Glad you're back running NZC - I was thinking of you on my run today.

Nice consistency donaldo.

28/02/2013 at 22:10

Evening all,

NZC - glad you're on the mend. Well done on 16k.

LMH - my word, you must have asked your legs very nicely indeed!

Chickadee - very nice long slow mid-week run there too.  Well done!

40min - hope quads managed whatever you decided to do tonight.

Me? Left things a bit late so had a short run - only 3 miles, but included 10 short sharkie bits, and that was about right - tired, but not so tired that I felt feeble for the rest of theday.  I rather like that exercise - it's about the only time I make my legs go fast.  Very short strides as I seem to have groin/hip issues at the moment.  They hurt worst at night, so almost certainly pd related.  Tomorrow I'm aiming to do a modest dose of hill.

Go well all.

28/02/2013 at 22:37

6 miles done with JS group - even persuaded them along an unlit path tonight!
