Another 6M banked last night. Very mild weather but run was constantly interrupted by stoppages caused by traffic, pedestrians, loose shoelace etc. Ran quite strongly in the last mile and it felt good to let go a bit!
Hi Kathy, I'm going to India to take my fathers ashes back. So the circumstances and facilities will not be conducive to any training. I will see what i can do but very much doubt it.
I have a HM next Sunday but my plan is to use it as a pacing trial. Our marathon race pace is 10mm so thats what I will be doing.Aiming to finish in 2.10. After that I want to know how I feel, and could I repeat it; cause that what we have to do. So im not going to be racing it flat out as that will take time to recover from and I still have 3 LSR's after that to do.
Billy, got time for a 5M run. You will be ok with the two HM's as marathon not until end of April. But if at any time you feel its too much change it to suit you.
Well it’s a double century for me; not quite in Chris Gayles style but still a hundred miles for February and over 200 for the year. 5M run last night half of which was into a strong cold wind. Listened to music for the first time in years, don’t know if it helps or not. Need soother music I think. Also headphone and wire need to be better managed.
Back to watch the Man City v Barcelona match. Suarez doing what he does best. Messi was magic although he missed a sitter after his penalty was saved. Good night for you SaintBarc, I think you’ve done enough to go through.
Hi Kathy, yeh I’m making mine up as I can’t handle doing 2M increments, just seems a lot to me. When I’ve got my training spot on it used to be 1m increments every fortnight with a cutback week in between. So flexible and not as much pressure to nail every run as is the case now. You have to start earlier but its works a lot better for me.
I did 16M this Sunday (hurting today!) and have 5 long runs left.
17M, HM, 18M, 19M, 20M, 11M, race and that’s it. I won’t be able to do a proper tapper either because I’m going abroad on Good Friday. I might chance it and do a 2M increment somewhere if I happen to feel really good that day!
As I said before not ideal but can’t do anything about it.
Morning all. Battling through the wind is no fun at all but I was relatively lucky on Sunday as the wind speed wasn't a hinderance until the last 6/7 miles. Still cold mind you! No parkrun for me either as I was having a sort of easy week and saving everything for the long run. 16M done but my thighs are hurting today! So a bit of a dilemma as to what to do this week as I know I’m tired and my HM is on 8th March. I think I’ll start with an easy 4M tomorrow and take it from there.
