Barry-I'm sure you'll find a way to join the fun in London. Yes, seriously, maybe you do need to speed up some-not a lot- miles and open the hip a bit -I feel better after a few faster miles until the hip tightens again overnight. That was an epic week no wonder you felt some twinges , your taper cant be long off.
AA-Great mixed bag of training this week and pleased to see that your hammy is beginning to behave. Any races planned?Don't suppose swimming caused the elbow problem.I have a shoulder issue but it was caused throwing a ball for our dog....he needs to go.
Chick-fingers crossed for your check up-we need you back here.You would love tris .Give them a go.
43 miles run last week making 140 for the month at an av. 7.33mm. No long run as work and life got in the way.Did the ykw on Saturday-20.14 , 2nd in age group, 11th overall. Gutted-will have to miss the 10k race planned for Thursday as I have a meeting with teachers then.
AA- the marathon was 3 weeks ago so I should be just about recovered ...maybe not. Good to see I'll have company next year in London - Bro? Barry?- and well done with the wins . England did enough and Wales exceeded expectations so Im very happy.
Barry- storming swim today. Very strong.
Recovery day yesterday in the country in Cheshire. Swim at lunch time today-struggling a bit with a pull in my right shoulder. Nice 12 mile run tonight some of which along the local canal. 7.27 mm average including 2 warm up miles.
Barry- what you say makes feel very old now...gulp. Any ideas what's causing the hip problem? My hip is an ongoing problem and seems to flare up when I use a bike or spin. I have some stretches that help a bit . Only another couple of weeks to your taper. Looking good
AA- sort out that entry! The pace will return..do some ykws. Any wins at Ascot?No plans for a marathon but want to keep my endurance ticking over so doing a few LRs . In a bit of a race wasteland at the moment . You don't look like your slacking to me
20 on Friday - was tough and a ykw on Saturday. Faster than last week even with the LR in my legs. 14th overall and 1st in age group again. 42 miles last week after 46 the week before. Busy this week so may struggle to train much
Done some swimming and watt biking and 2 runs whilst in London. Difficult weaving in and out of the crowds and stopping and starting crossing roads. Still enjoyed taking in the sights and running along the river and around some parks. 17miles done over 2 days.
