TTop - Its what I always do, seems to work (except one time when my achillies went at the end of it!) SJ - GL CW - with you on the weather woshes DanA - Brighton is pretty massive though in a very short time TheJ - GL PP- Such hard sessions
Great rest day today - if cleaning the oven can be counted as rest.
HR was 42 this morning which is pretty low for me so aerobically I seem to be OK, though I know I haven't done enough running really. Still can't shake the extra KG or 2 off. Really looking forward to a beer or 4.
Got half way through a post about 3 days ago, which took ages and go away for a couple of days and theres pages and pages, that will teach me.
CW - Incredible mileage you do.
Selbs - with you on needing a confidence boosting run
PP - Gratz on the Nationals
LukeS - Gratz on the win
Padams - Fingers crossed on the calves. Funny I feel better in the cold, well coldish
Bains - Hope the ankle is OK
Long Runs 3*24, 2*22, 3*20, 2*19 but 3 of those were in Jan
So on the plus side my feet are feeling OK now and the knee was OK on the last run. Also lost a kilo or 2, hovering around 73-74kgs, hoping to get down to 72. Not had a drink since Saturday so getting pretty grumpy and am eating a fair bit less.
On the -ve side did 10*500 at about 100secs (10/4) each but a couple from the end my calves started getting sore and by the end were very sore. They hadn't settled down enough to risk them till 14th so I had to miss my last long run as I felt that was too close, so did 12 miles easy with 3 quick miles, lower left calf was sore from the start but held out. HR was very high from the first fast mile, it was mega hot where I am. Knee didn't hurt till the next day but has settled down again. Plan to do 4 miles tomorrow reasonably brisk. Lower calf is still sore, been icing it and massaging it but it won't loosen much. really pissed off!
