NZC: I see Kim Smith is down to run VLM. Should be interesting.
Have a good one!
Arclight - nothing could be further from the truth unfortunately. I'm nearly 6ft 2" and my knees have never got anywhere near the height of my waist. My flexibility is appalling so I look a bit like Benny Hill when I run - or to be kinder, one of the Japanese female marathon runners. I know what you mean though - I've felt like Steve Ovett on plenty of occasions.
I'm doing drills 2 - 3 times a week in the hope it improves.
Not posted for a few days work, acting like a Zombie and not sleeping terribly well
But now off for a week so i can sleep hopefully run a bit, eat, my eating pattern has been totally mucked up
Arclight - Hope you don't look back at the end of races a la Ovett, as much as i loved the man this was one pet hate of mine and wouldbe forever yelling at the tv. Possibly showboating but ...
Did manage runs yesterday 2.05 miles and 1.44 only tiddlers but they'll do trying to run everyday in December even if its for a mile. But at least i know for the next 6-7 days i can get some decent running in and only 6 more nights after that of these silly 4am finishes
Crikey Gobi. You sure love training! Pleased for you though.
Me tonight...Similar sprint hill reps to last Thursday. Walk back recoveries. Just that bit harder than last week though, as there was one more rep - and that was the middle sized hill (Mummy Bear). P says he's making it progressively harder each week. I fervently hope that next time doesn't bring an extra Daddy Bear hill. Two of them one after another just about finishes me off as it is.
Bloody freezing.Continuous with just walk back recoveries.2 x 80m2 x 120m2 x 80m2 x 120m2 x 180mplus 1 x 80m as an extra treat added on to the end when your legs are swimming in lactic and your last meal is about to make a re-appearance. Dry heaving also an option.Acksherly (as those in the know would expect) that final short hill is...pretty damn nice! My legs started - err - flowing on the final 30 metres. Stride lengthened. It was easy! MAGIC.I aint 'alf knackered now though.Quite pleased with myself. Only girl there amongst 8 blokes, all except P. much younger than me. I was last on almost every rep. But I did the lot them and was a only respectable distance behind. Proud!2 mile downhill walk to Pilates tomorrow. I will get a lift back though. Need to keep a bit in reserve for the Massive Challenge of the Saturday run. One and a half miles at some sort of snailio pace.
busy day, little time to post
what: 5.5 miles at work in 43:24 , lunchtimewhy: all there was time for
