Have found a bit of running mojo back, and have done 4 runs this week. Slowest was 5k in 30 mins (with my son), quickest was 5miles in 41 mins. I'm hoping 2 more weeks of just running 4-5 times a week will get me up to around 35 miles per week, and then I can decide what I want to start training for.
good to see others training go well - reading about others enjoying their running makes me want to...
Been away from the thread for far too long due to life getting in the way.
Kudos to everyone who's had stonking runs (includes PP, Curly, WJH, Simon and Duck based on the odd bit of lurking I've managed to do)
Double kudos to CB for battling with his stresses and being so open about them.
My marathon plans have been shelved for now due to my job going mental, and the pressure of trying to keep running, deliver on the day job, and be an active contributing member of my family meant something had to give - and running was the easiest, least costly alternative....
I may (hope) to be back at some point, but for now I'm probably best lurking.
My legs felt a little sore and tight on Sunday afternoon, and getting out of my car after the drive home from the Spitfire was not fun. However, a bit of light stretching on Sunday evening, and a gentle play on my foam roller meant they felt surprisingly good yesterday, and I'm aiming to do 9miles today, so we'll see how they feel during that.
Cheers Curly - I knew that I just wanted to have a positive run, and whilst my plan was to do 10@9m/m followed by 10@07:30, I ended up shaving 3 mins of the first 10m and taking 3 mins more on the 2nd 10m. However, the end result is the same, and because of my calf pull this was the first 20 of this marathon campaign, so I'm relaxed about the paces...
I feel as though I am ever so slightly behind the curve in terms of where I would like to be with my marathon training, but according to prf (on the Kier mentoring thread) this is a good way to feel....? I also have 3 more weeks than most, as MK is not until 6th May
Great 21 from you today - are you getting close to firming up on your target for Brighton?
