I know 5 seconds off what I said and they have given me a minus score

Penalty for missing prediction.

At least not as bad as EMT & PC who have a massive -19pts

Indeed. My training has gone considerably better than expected which resulted in a HM PB by 8 minutes......sorry

It's a damn shame missing the target, but the PB's are just sweet. I got another PB yesterday at my 10km race, knocked almost 2 mins off!

Brrrrr chilly out there again this morning.

 

Still time to get runs updated for those who need to.

Well done to FF who came pretty close to predicted time 

Another fair morning for running, hardly any breeze and nice cool temps.

Run postponed today, wind at 30mph when awake, common sense prevailed for a change.

Tomorrow hopefully

All logged and up to date. Yesterday I went out to do about 15 miles, ended up doing 17.5 in rain / hail / sleet and a bit of sun; far and away the best run I've ever had.

That's good, but this week you have 17 and you've only done a 16 !!

Are you going out again for a long run ?

Survived 6+ miles this morning but it wasn't pretty.  Was going to have another stab at my 5k target tomorrow but forecast is for horizontal sleet 

Will see how it looks when I get up in the morning.

It's been horrible these past couple of days, sympathies with anyone who has snow at the moment.

Managed a good run this afternoon, waited as long as I dare before the weather decided to turn. Managed my 17 miles with a timed 13.1

Now the owner of a new PB of 1.59.47 just 3 seconds off my estimated time

Getting quicker as I'm getting older, happy with that.

The 17 is planned for tomorrow (hopefully first thing but depends if it freezes overnight).

The 16 was unplanned, went out to do 10/12 miles and, for me, went really well. Knowing I was hitting about the right times for my proper timed run I kept it going to 16 - in case I never run that well again! I ended up a minute or so over my prediction but with a time I was happy with.

One more week to go, has been a good 3 months of Winter motivation

Let's get those runs recorded for this week.

24/03/2013 at 13:54

Thanks to this crappy weather I came close to cutting my long run short today.  I was going to go for time on my feet rather than distance, which would mean less miles.  I got myself out the door at 7:15am with the promise to myself that I could cut the run short and finish remaining miles on the treadmill.  It wasn't easy, but it wasn't as hard as I had been expecting, so I turned around to come back at ten miles   The final few miles rank among the toughest of any of my training runs!  The cold headwind added to the challenge of coming up the incline on snow and ice.

It's now taper time for me, with the marathon in three weeks time.  I'll be attempting my Jantastic race (parkrun) next Saturday.  The weather had better improve, or I'll have no chance of making my target!

All done......horrid!

also after 100% upto this week, when got a calf strain and had to bin 1 run which was the long run, sorry let the side down

 

26/03/2013 at 11:07

Sorry to hear that SA, hope the calf doesn't take too long to recover.

26/03/2013 at 11:10

Injuries or illness seem to have taken there toll last week, Hope everyone recovers quickly and not benched for long periods.

Last week of the series, looking forward to my next challenge.

It's that time of year when months of marathon training take their toll. Fingers crossed all affected heal/recover before their big day.

My ad hoc route this evening ended up being a bit longer than intended so that's my long run done for the week. Now just have to hit my 5k target on Saturday.

My next challenge will be keeping up at least 3 runs per week without the motivation of Jantastic
