Amy my glutes like to stay out of the firing line too, and when I do activate them, it's all one-sided. Working on that lots right now.
Your 400 intervals are marvellous, well done.
I think I'm going to try your alternating 9/8 miling session tomorrow, like the sod of that.
My over 20 runs so far have been : canal side, Finchley, club 20 in Victoria Park, canal side again. On Saturday I will be doing the canal version, this time up past Enfield Lock to the M25 intersection hopefully, so...yes and no - I used to stick with out and back up the canal, now adding variety up to a point, and I did poodle around the Olympic Park on earlier runs 17, 18 etc
Shame ti have missed Spitfire for another hillier one but can't be helped, we have done what we can.
It's amazing you get to run with your mum, that's so special.
Great stuff Isabel. I was happy enough with the weather last year, woukd have liked water that worked is all.
Glorious sun out there today if full of surprises - those gusts! Had a fun resistance session in which my hood became a parachute on the Greenway as I fought into the headwind. It was like one of those tiny swimming pools that are all current.
It was howling out there this morning - I was blown all the way to the Olympic Park, and on the way back was leaning into the wind so hard would have thrown myself across the road had it changed, so luckily it wasn't a road.
Bonus = no midges.
Was amazed at how 2 days of no running makes everything springy again. OK so knee hurts and left leg feels so much longer these days, but all very doable. Had to circle a while before the Easter trippers left my outdoor gym alone so i could do the needful rows and chest press in full view of both stadium & Orbit.
I'm doing something called Run the World in which [most generously] every 10 mins of cross training counts as a mile, so my total for March was 176.5 actual run, 69 XT, 96 strength.
Nowhere near Chicsta & many of you on running miles, but it's a lot for me, wreck or not.
Super - ??40 for the VO2 max test @ SF, the Inbody scan thingy is ??30.
Morning all - what a night, I was much later than intended as a crisis at work erupted requiring me to listen to versions of a saga, had to contact mega boss who is coaching warm weather track in Florida [these are the jobs], all whilst off work , only to be woken by the wind trying to floor the tree outside, and a car alarm going off just after 5.
Have an easy 45 min run today, think I will stick with that rather than up it to a track session, which can wait til tomorrow as per teh schedule, although had been thinking 2 x faster sessions today & Thursday with the long one on Saturday.
Coach Steve I so feel for you with the odds dropping, and so hoping that all will be edging in the otehr direction again by the end of the week. I have found a few times already that there has been a major obstacle or freak injury just as things have been going spetacularly well.
I did a VO2 max test on a bike yesterday which was quite fun and energising, not that easy for me as I tend to do my few bike sessions at low resistance and high cadence. My score was 42.5 which doesn't seem too bad, and I did a Speedflex session afterwards.
