AA-hope you are making a fast recovery now you are on antibiotics.Are you getting the odd run in?
Pink-sorry to hear about the loss. Hope the injury sorts out soon too.Guess you will still be swimming
Free-good to see you back up and running.Wont take long for you to get back up to speed.Some good mileage anyway.Im wondering about Abbo, though like you Ive signed up before(twice) and not got to the start.
Chick-how are you doing?
O4S-recovered from your holiday?
Miss2O back on track for VLM after a 16 mile LR on Friday -so we may yet still run it at the same time.
Anyone got any races coming up? Liverpool HM on 28th for me if I dont squeeze something else(10k?, 20m?) in in the meantime.
Didnt do the YKW on Saturday and went to Windermere instead for the night. Sunday 9.4 miles with 6 at mp. Yesterday, a very tough steady 9 miles in gale force wind plus swim club last night.Quite pleased with the latter-Im not much behind the gang who go 3 times a week.8 or so miles with hill reps today my schedule tells me.
AA/Free- lots of positive vibes from me to you both ....a few days off recovering won't hurt with all you have both banked.
Chick- well done getting that run in after your niggle. Let's hope you can put in a decent spell of running.
O4S- I'm exhausted reading about all you've done on your hols. Don't suppose youll be less busy from now on either.
17.4 miles today ,7.45 mm average. Still very windy which made some of the run tougher and was also energy draining. Can't believe it's the last day of Feb tomorrow and I'm not looking forward to March -it's always a tough month for me both physically and mentally . Got a massage booked for Monday and may have to see my GP too as I've been coughing up green stuff for a couple of weeks.
O4S-impressive results on your "holiday"Your wava's should be in the 90s though so are you trying hard enoughMaybe a few rest days will helpyou peak
Pink-thats a bummer about the injury.Hope the physio is right.When you changed your shoes were they a different brand?Maybe they are responsible.Try the next run in your old ones.Stay positive
Pink/Barry-2 Orcas? That makes you a pod...sorry
Barry-I wouldnt worry about the 5 today which to me looks pretty decent anyway, that was a tough swim yesterday(good times too) on top of a draining pacey15 miler. Your splits are about my 5k,10k and HM paces on a good day.Some runs should be easy you knowI AM going to do do at least one Olly this Summer,
Booked Wimslow sprint tri for May as I need to look beyond April for my sanity.My mate has already signed up and put 7.39 as his 400m swim time.This made me realise I'm neglecting my swims (I'm not injured! touch wood) and am going to be left behind so did 2k at lunchtime concentrating on 100m sprints.
