ON7 sounds like solid 16 banked in decent sub 3 pace
PP have to admit I'm not much of a cyclist but tempting given that pic; where in majorca is it...I'd be flying solo if I wanted to venture out on that
CW/bains heavy bumbag sounds hideous; never had a problem with a backpack as long as the straps will do up tight enough. Always do my long runs with at least 2-3kg backpack with phone/keys gels and water
TR sounds like rib ligament/muscle sprain bloody painful adn not much you can do don't want to be harbinger of doom but will probably take 6 weeks to settle. I did a rib on an assault course (stag do) last summer had to take 4 weeks completely off running
bains great km repeats; love those paces and good mix of training. glad the mojo is overflowing ps wife found my wedding ring at weekend...any luck with yours??
TR hope the surfing injury is all healed up now. sounds nasty. Must be a proud Dad with budding cricketers like that especially if in adult 2nd's or 1st XI. Really impressed with the family zero week. I have a holiday to Majorca 5 weeks out from Abingdon, all inclusive, been toying with what to do. Don't think I can handle a zero but think will make it a serious cutback week; there's a gym with one treadmill guess some early visits there so I can start drinking after breakfast!
further 6 yesterday and 9 miles early doors this morning. Legs already feeling much fresher so cutback week working its magic
rounded off the week with a planned 17 with 10 at MP. Didn't quite get to MP due to being at grandparents (wife working so needed someone to look after the kid while I ran), more wind and inclines than used to but the 10 averaged 6.06 mm slow w/u cool down but made a 1.22 HM and 17.1 at 6.32 mm. felt bit on the brink this week but cutback week coming up so hoping that bring me in the realms of safety again
good training there stet and nice end to holiday cw
wardi welcome back glad to see you're slowly getting back to it
pp the backflips were only in the recovery period...at present there are not enough superlatives to describe your training. top top form
bains great 5king and speedy work; nice work to knock nearly a minute off in less than a week! Targets are a difficult place for me at the moment as too many DNS's for me to get overexcited, therefore main one is staying fit; I know if I do whatever happens should be a big pb. Realistically though I'd like to keep the sub 6min/mile so anything sub 2.40 i'd be delighted with
tmoth sure its a little of everything you've said but i'd agree that more than liekly its the 24 hour race still in the system. Thats a heck of a race to recover from unless you're used to knocking out 120-130 mile/weeks. sure it'll come back soon maybe try not the push the LSR the next couple weeks
ALP loved the report hope the legs weren't too beaten up by the race, great result again
bainspj great sunday pickup after saturdays race, running is a funny old game! superb tuesday speed session; hope 5k goes well tonight
tmoth/lev sounds like the spring will be fully back your steps soon. did last marathon without a garmin (well it fell off at about 8 miles) definitely liberating running without it...spot on equal half splits, so a lot to be said for it
PP superb silver but disappointing gurn; definitely not putting enough effort in. top result and continued outstanding training
SL 10k result obviously all relative; hope heart flutter sorted soon and you able to 'hurt' yourself properly again
Jools amazing picture ; should be the cover of next runnersworld, love the phallic balloon stack behind you
CW glad you back to training and hamstring nothing serious but sticking out tendons sounds dramatic!
stet never been a member of a club but having done last 2 weeks bac sessions with one am seriously considering it (plus you need to be if you want a championship start), seems a lot easier to run faster with others
Dachs hope you had a great time. nice PB equalling run even if not quite the sub 33 you wanted. can't be far off
padams glad you back to it and seemingly not too much harm done
This week 6 mile easy monday, 6+5 easy double tues and last night was second outing with poole ac and the bac session. 4x15mins off 3 mins. Felt much harder this week and legs given a good smashing helped by some faster runners. Anyway 15 mins (approx 2.6 miles each) were averaged at 5.55, 5.54, 5.57 and 5.53mm, session with wu/wd eeked out 15.23 miles. over 70 miles in the last 6 days, not really planning to up mileage anymore this time round
