Pink - nice to enjoy a run. Unless I'm doing a session like tempo or intervals I do most of my runs without a watch - just run on feel. I do find I enjoy them a lot more that way!
Oompa - hope yesterday's run went well.
Nightmare this morning....I think we must have a wasps nest somewhere near the house...when I went for a shower and turned the light on the shower room was invaded by about 10 of the buggers attracted to the light. So there I was under the shower and no way was I coming out (being a bit of a woos!). I made OH get out of bed and come and sort them out with the bug spray before I ventured out. Needless to say he was not best pleased (well it was 5am!). Hopefully he'll get the pest people round today to sort it out.
Hoping to get some intervals in later, although they might be postponed until tomorrow. It's my birthday on Saturday and I'm half tempted to do the YKW as a treat
Been off for an extended long weekend - didn't touch my phone or computer which was bliss! Got a few good runs in including a new route for my LSR on Sunday - the more undulating part of Suffolk, quite tough in places but a nice run, 12.75 miles in total, averaging 8.22.
Back to the office today - tough getting out of bed this morning!
Barry - my OH keeps banging on at me not to use the treddie when I have injuries, as it means each step is exactly the same, so if you have a problem with your achilles it just goes over the same problem with each step. Better to run on uneven ground like grass - it'll hurt more initially I expect but better in the long run. Mind you I rarely take his advice myself, but there is some logic in it!
Kiwi - hope the knee settles down soon
Nell - great reps
I was on 800m intervals yesterday. Only 6 of them but I'm more keen to get some speed back rather than do loads of them. Times were ranging from 3.25 down to 3.12...so getting there
Great mileage kiwi. And I'd agree with the others, a 10k 2 weeks out sounds like a good idea.
kfc - that sounds like a great marathon to do. I'd also go out at 3.20 pace and see what happens
Nell - nice 16, good pace too in that wind.
Windy on my run too yesterday - 12 miles, but I surprised myself with my pace - averaged 8.03, but it was progressive, and they were all sub 8's after about mile 5 or so. The last one was 7.28. Not sure where that came from but it felt good!
Oompa....you're having a slow poo? The mind boggles...anyway, I hope it was a good one
Tempo yesterday, pretty much the same as last week - average pace for the effort (3.5 miles) was around 7.20. I don't feel I can go much quicker yet over a sustained distance, but at least I'm starting to regain some leg speed. Interesting interview BTW on MT last week about running action, cadence etc - worth a listen.
Euros good again last night for the Brits. Pleased Andy Vernon got the silver - he seems like a gutsy runner, very strong but hasn't turned it into bling before now. I thought he was going to come fourth as that last lap was happening, so it was good to get the silver.
