I was a bit shocked to find I had to do 15 min x 1min run/walk this morning but the Blessed Jules knows my body better than me so off I went to my golf course lap of about 0.3 miles out of sight of most folk
Run bits were -
1:58 miles (9:34m/m) avhr 137 mhr 153 1:58 miles (9:34m/m) avhr 144 mhr 159 1.53 miles (9:51m/m) avhr 143 mhr 154 Quite pleased with the first two but deliberately throttled back the third to keep things under control a bit.
The slight hill on my laps is a bit bigger than I thought when one does it 4 times!! Garmin measures it as 16m so that is 64m of climb in each 1.5 miles which is getting a bit severe for my delicate state of recovery
Chris very moving and emotional report - one can't help to be moved by so much support in a race. It was a wise decision to concentrate on enjoying the occasion and getting round enjoying it seeing that your cough has now progressed to such a degree. The antibiotics will hopefully do the trick and also help prevent any secondary infection
Your splits were very good indeed - very smooth and consistent - an ideal way to get maximum out of energy resources and I love the detail which I will happily analyse away and file for future reference I was going to make the Paddington Bear comment as well but Columba beat me to it.......................................
Columba another convert to the BB club? It's my favourite time for running and it gets one's body used to normal race time routines as well. Seemed like it was going well for you today
more g'pa duties today - bigger camping expedition in the garden worked wonders.
Columba congratulations - take note of above for future reference!!
Chris well done on surviving your marathon debut with a smile and nothing worse than a sun tan!! I can relate to the John Wayne walk but since I discovered Bodyglide that no longer occurs!!! It was 2:44:15 gun to tape - but that was a long time ago - and a different body!!! I went on that year to run a HM PB in the GNR in 1:15:11 so a marathon sets you up nicely for it!!
aws really good progress there - excellent
Ceal speedy stuff - nice to see you stretching your legs . I can see the LFITM calling soon...................... I make a point of not looking at what is coming on the schedule so it has been a bit surprising to see it ramping up so much but I do know the intervals reduce to 1 min walk tomorrow!!!!
NZC the picture link may have reverted to private on the preceding page but I have fixed it now
Schedule ramped up to 15 min run x 2 min walk x 3. Just as well it was a perfect running day early on- light frost, beautiful clear sky, no wind
Run bits looked like -
1.21 miles (9:57m/m) avHR 129 max 149 1.28 miles (9:26m/m) avHR 136 max 151 1.27 miles (9:30m/m) avHR 139 max 153
all done on the grass of the pitch and putt course in Valley Gardens with a bit of an evil slope to overcome so I'm not worrying about HR just yet. Felt easier at 9:30 pace than slower though HR tells another story but I am concentrating on form and movement
