40: Sounds like you still haven't found your racing head - or if you have, you beat it to death with alcohol
clink "...i'm finding the speed for HR goes really off very quickly..." Tell me about it! And I don't even use a HRM.
Welcome noobie! Congrats on the PB.
DD: Finger's crossed for no last minute health scares. That Bill Rowan has your name on it. ( as well as Bill Rowan's )
Welcome Davey - I might see you at Berlin
Have a good one!
nice clue sgq....
Wabo - impressive recovery!
Noobie - well done on your pb - quite a chunk off your time!
DD - you'll definitely have to go for a Bill Rowan. Remind me to introduce you to Fu in Durban - he earned one of the last Bill Rowans on the down run in 2007 - his time was 8:59:42. I'm sure you'll have a lot to discuss...
TT - hope your medical issues are resolved soon - at least you now know what the cause was and what needs to be done... Looking forward to hearing what greater feats you'll achieve when you're fully recovered!
What: 4miles easyWhy: Comrades taperLast hard: Last TuesdayLast rest: YesterdayLyrics: despite sgq's clue - nope!
For anyone who's bored enough to track my progress on the Comrades web site on Sunday my number is 9436.
Flying out tomorrow so hopefully next post will be from South Africa - as long as all my travel plans go without a hitch (touch wood!).
Nice pb noobieGood luck with the Comrades DD - (my next ultra is not until 2010)TT - don't know - Reading 1:18, Bracknell 1:21 - in the past have taken 30s longer at Wokingham than at Reading - but warmer weather adds to to the error of estimation - have to be v. happy with anything uner 1:19 I guess - more concerned with where I am in Berks CC - hopefully no worse than 2nd MV40
What: 8 miles steadyWhy: keeping it ticking over pre WokinghamLast hard: SundayLast rest: SaturdayLyrics: nopeTake care all
Noobie - well done on the marthon PB.
Dubai Dave - you know you've done the work - you've just got to relax and let it happen on Sunday. Number 9445 noted.
Tipp Top - sounds like you have still been getting the training in even with the low iron - good luck for the marathon.
Scobos - 5 x 1 mile - all under 5.30 - nice.
Hi Jason & Davey. Good luck with your marathon times Davey.
SGQ - nice 6 miler - finishing strongly.
Slow Duck - got your number too - 9436 - have a good one.
Michael - good luck for Wokingham.
What: another little run - 20 minutes - hopefully my legs will thank me for it.
Good running everyone.
good luck slow duck!
I did 5 slow miles tonight, 50.45, wrell not massively slow for me. Its a weird feeling now to have a running marathon and walking one too in the bag within 3 weeks of each other. I suddenly feel cool with my running because they are out of the way and tbh I was a bit worried. NOw I have survived and just want to enjoy running, know what I mean anyone?
anyhow, lyrics, cos I feel the need to read some harry potter, even though I am supposed to do an essay by friday! Life is a minestrone, 10cc, or a carrot and coriander clink if you like
take care all, oh my club mates are doing brilliantly up in cape wrath in case anyone here is also taking part! Proper proud of them I am!
A late good evening!What: 40 mins that started off slow and got slower on muddy river banks and pathsWhy: need to get some time on my feetLast hard: that wasLast rest: Dec 24
Lyrics: nope...until I saw the answer. And yes, Life is a Minestrone! Nice choice Wabo.
GobiYes, I know you're still posting impressive training at interesting times, but many of us don't speak "bike, swim", so it doesn't have the same impact. Comment was meant to be encouragement rather than complaint!
What: 5 miles easy, but rather wearyWhy: BaseLast hard: 2 daysLast rest: 3 daysLast alcohol: 3 days
Club run tomorrow.
Thanks for all the welcomes!
Good luck Slow Duck. Hope the trip to South Africa is a good one! Good luck also Dubai Dave
TT - If that's the training you do with low iron, It'll be interesting to see what you can do on full power!
Well done on the PB Noobie!
Wabo - well done on the moonwalk! think I know what you mean, now that I've got the marathon out of the way and essentially recovered from it, I can just enjoy the running and not worry about it!
Joe - good luck with the 10k... take it easy!
Yet again, seemed to chose the worst time of the day to do my evening run, so did a drenching 6.2 miles along an undulating route in 45:45. Quite (well, a bit too much) refreshing! First time I've done back-to-back doubles, going to have a couple of single days just to make sure I'm not overdoing it too quickly!
Good to see some new faces on here
MichaelG: Do it! It's not that hard really as long as you are used to big hill days, Run/walk the ups and fly down the other side Noobie: congrats on the PBDD: Go for the Bill rowan! It's certainly in your capabilityscobos: nice reps
What: 7m inc a 5.5m fell raceWhy: A bit of tuesday Tempo running. Fairly pleased to finish a smidge over 40 mins on a tough course with battered legs.
