echo bainspj was gonna say exactly same thing. was massively chuffed with 12 mile last night after work in 28 degree heat followed by 8M this am 9 hours later before work but you guys are insane. ALP that is mental and amazing great LR commute with consistent times and great progressive run. CW may need to invest in a stannah. further ridiculousness but impressive resolve to spend that long on some stairs I can't believe you can still walk!
12M with 3m wu 2k, 2x800, 4x400, 2x800 2x1k off 200m recoveries and 2m cool down. despite wu and warm down being 8mm still managed 12M in 1.18.20 @ 6.42 mm average and good sweaty first efforts since back from injury and all effort between 5k and MP despite heat. 8 easy this am at 7.30 mm to keep legs ticking over
good to see more progress from TR and top top work from PP you seem in amazing form at the moment
cw good time considering the fall; hope all scars faded and healed now; my only ever race fall was the dip in the lake earlier in the year. i still have significant scars on my leg..unlike you i didn't bother to continue though!
dan a fab 50k and great podium especially in the heat...cups ?! you must have been dying. great that after the awful disappointment earlier in the year you're now flying
tmoth absolute monster effort, crazy stuff how much of that was walked?
postie good long run; this time of year surely you gotta take some fluid with you?
bains been lucky with blisters looks like you have more of a semi-amputation. hope the foot doesn't fall off. not sure i can offer any meaningful advice on healing
bufo as usual from you that is some serious speed and excited to see what you pull out the bag over the coming months
lev wow what immense training; you're cut back week still sounds slightly insane. good job on managing the workload. sounds like you being sensible with not pushing the speed at the same time and a decent plan for next marathon. My next aim is Abingdon, not having much time to get back from injury and get marathon prepared but as long as I stay fit it should be a significant PB. I just don't want to push too hard and be sat here in 2 years time with the same marathon PB. I'm not up to the speed of earlier this year yet but fitness is not far off....
gutted selbs hope knee settles soon, I quit football in all form 4 years ago when I have a massive hamstring tear which meant I could do no sport except for take up golf for 1 year/ Hence I spent a fortune on golf gear which has been gathering dust in my cupboard for 2 years! Hope you get you U-bend sorted soon!
quick one; my wife is nagging me for a birthday present list (yes I still am like a school aged child) can't think of anything so any good gadgets/running apparel or utter crap anyone can suggest between £5-150 would be great (i have a garmin; i do not have a smart phone so anything needing apps is out!)
Great work Jools top result and brilliant PB. backed up with good LR today
TR nice bike/run combo glad you giving the legs a proper working. weather good for cricket
ALP solid LR and decent mileage and week; sounds like next weekend should be fun
Really pleased with my week despite 36 hours D and V, eating out 3 times and 2 take aways managed. 61 miles for the week.....by far the most since mid feb.
Finished week off with 7 easy on Friday, 6 mile including park run (4th 16.59) on Saturday. Really pleased with park run legs felt very comfortable throughout and though the time is no great shakes the body felt completely different to last sunday and felt could have kept that up for a decent 10k time. reeled in 3rd place after he was way up and got side by side at 400m to go but couldn't be bothered to fight him for it!
Last night was a work do; curry, 4 beers and a 'sex on the beach' so was unusually woken at 5.40am by my alarm for the run today. started slow unsurprisingly but managed 9k easy 10k 20% MP 10k 10% MP and 2 mile cool down for 20 miles in 2.18 @ 6.55 mm. Best weeks training in 5 months and beaming now! straight to the beach after and lovely swim in the sea before out to lunch yummy
padams thats really horrific really hope you ok and the stiffness/inflammation doesn't come out too much over next couple of days. scary stuff, definitely with CD on the fact that just admitting apologising and learning can at least go some way to making things right
CW proper bug wife had it tail end of last week fortunately daughter escaped it so far, great training again hopefully fruitful for sunday
