Nell - you seem to have gone on very well with this plan. Would you recommend this one above the others you have tried ?
I did not get out for a run today. Between the golf on the telly, work I was trying to do and am still trying to do on the computer, giving the kids some attention and taking the little fella to his football match (6-5 winners) there was just not time. Plus I am feeling tired. Too much work really. Need some quality downtime in the next week or two.
So have just about survived another crazy week at work.
Just come on here to check if anyone is still actually running.
PS - as Carter says you will not loose too much fitness but might be an idea to do some non impact cardio work at the gym. I am no expert in these matters but I think that will help.
Carter - depending on how radical this change of diet is, it could be leaving you fatigued as you adjust to a different balance of carbs / protein etc. So you might need to adjust when you run to make sure you are not always using your reserves for normal running. Not sure this makes sense when written down but it has been a long week.
Ali - great to hear you have settled in well and are busy. As Carter says just think of those hols.
Nell - you are our shining light at the moment. I am expecting great things from you as you have been following this plan of yours superbly well.
Canter - any more races planned for you or you just going to focus on club running over the winter ?
So this weekend we have Ricky running in Berlin. In case you are 'lurking' best of luck mate and let us know how you got on.
So I am going to get some running in this weekend but will wait to the morning before deciding what to do.
Have just popped out from a mad and hectic week or so to see what everyone is up to.
PS - sorry to hear about the PF. Rest, rest and more rest. You have done loads of training. Important thing is to recover and you will do this quicker by resting. Yes it defies logic but it is true.
And yes Carter and I have been around here for a while and certainly I intend hanging aound for a lot longer. Have not got anywhere close to my goals yet and keeping in touch with you all on here is an important part of keeping me honest and focused.
Carter - I think we all love carbs so running helps find a balance.
Nell - good solid running from you as normal.
Canter - great HM time especially off a minimalist training plan. Well done.
So last week was so mad that running was just not on the agenda. I did manage to get out for 10 miles at the weekend which i completed in 7:59 m /m. But this was tougher than it should have been. Probably because I am fatigued from work pressures etc.
So I def made the right call about Chicago. I am not going to stress about chasing a PB at the Royal Parks HM on the same day. I think my training will be sporadic between now and then. I will get in what I can but it will not be easy. So finishing in a sensible time is now the goal.
