Brer - another great result are we going to see you running with Paula on Sunday ?
Getting a little worried about my little day out now I feel like I'm running out of time with training. Can any of you more experienced peeps help me work out a rough long run plan. I was happily half fit before I overdid the miles in March and tweeked my calf (by the way been given a stretch that really seems to be helping) my last decent run was mid march 15 miles. Aiming to run/walk 8-10 this weekend to see how I hold up. Then I have Chester half 17/5, potentially CyB mara 20/6 (I can take this down to half but I don't want to) and then hopefully a 40 mile bimble (12 hr time limit) 22/8. I obviously don't want to overdo it again and seriously damage my calf but I want to be in good enough shape to survive happily. Any help very appreciated.
FR - yeah a good result and into single figures countdown
Managed 6 miles yesterday on the easier trails did a 1min run/30 sec walk which worked pretty well still huffed and puffed up the last hill which a few weeks ago didn't even register as a hill . Bit stiff after but ok today.
Decided to knuckle down and try to get a few pounds off as well as recent forced inactivity is taking it's toll and I'm sure my knees will appreciate having less of me to carry around
Group run was cancelled last night as Matt was busy with race prep fro Saturdays Goldrush but we decided as it was such a lovely evening a visit to CyB was definitely a good choice. So we loaded up the dogs (means it will be a bit of a stop, start run and limits the distance as old dog can't go far now) and did the 3 mile run. I ran all of it with no problems even good enough to get to the top of the last incline and ask Mr C how did we get here. Bit stiff this morning but nothing major so very happy.
TRex - fantastic write up as usual, got a bit worried at the rattlesnake bar section was half expecting you to say you'd met one of its namesakes Glad the wedding went well.
LG - hopefully will be able to attempt the full at worst i'll wobble around the half with the sweeper.
Massage has definitely helped my leg and my 2 mile run/walk (Mr C is being very strict on me not going mad until completely recovered) was ok not brilliant just ok (but I'm always very stiff after even a couple of days off) so tonight I'm off to CyB group but I will pad around gently again while Mr C runs with the grown ups. It is speed circuits night so at least I won't have to worry about being miles behind I can cheer them all on as they lap me multiple times.
