NZC, I repeat what I said a while back, this thread has really tough ladies.
Impey, Well done on your AG win and getting close to sub 30.
Columba, There really is no excuse for the race director allowing a runner to get lost, even if they are short of volunteers, a few cones work.
I have developed a small niggle on the inside of my right knee. It doesn't appear to be the knee more the tendon/ligaments at the bottom of the bulgy bit. I can run with it but decided not to today as I have a 5k at the weekend. I did 30 mins on the spinner followed by 5k on the rower. It felt good all the way. I then did a few chinups, pressups etc. A comfortable workout.
aws, I think you should hang on to Angela for another 50. If I had spilt wine on a new carpet, especially in the middle of the night I would in the doghouse for a while.
NZC, Wishing you swift of foot and the absolute minimum of pain.
ceal, Despite run walking, your workouts seem to be very aggressive.
Today's run was an easy 10 miler along an old railway track that has been converted into a bicycle path.
It runs right past my house and goes on forever. It is very pretty as it passes through wetlands, woods and farm land but those long long slow climbs can make it mentally tough as you can see it ahead of you for miles.
That finished off my week at 26 miles, including a rest of 2 days to recover my legs.
NZC, Ouch. I have done my share of face plants, running and cycling, not a lot of fun. It definitely shakes up old bones and you get all sorts of aches and pains afterwards. You are very fit so hopefully it will all still work come race day.
Chris, The ladies on this thread are one tough bunch, nothing seems to stop you. I feeling really wimpy taking a few days off because my legs didn't feel happy.
I managed a couple of 5 mile progressives, not too aggressive and things felt a bit more comfortable.
Chris, It is funny how our bodies seem to age faster than our will. When I am in a race I am still that lean mean running machine in the lead pack, not some old geezer hanging on buried in the pack. Unfortunately when I look at my final time I have to accept the latter.
Columba, Well done on the half, it is a tough distance. They do get easier the more you do.
My legs have been complaining a bit lately so I decided to give them a few days off. They still had to work just not running. Today was 15 mins on the spinner, then 5k row then a hour of exercises.
