Don't be disappointed with your race time for too long. You have just had a holiday as you mention, the stiff breeze and hills will have played their part in making the race a challenge. A voucher for where? The draw back to vouchers, I found, was that one had to spend more money in the shop fonating the voucher, in order to cash it in!!
Busy day, but I did fit in a slow recovery 3.55 miles. No running tomorrow, we are out most of the day. No, not singing! We shall meet my daughter and families new 9 week old Whippet puppy.
I think you have to make a decision when you wake up on Sunday or which ever day of the weekend that you do a long run. I would perhaps wait another weekend so that you are recovered from the 18 miler you did last weekend.
Just keep the miles coming in. I think you maintain your fitness pretty well.
How was the race, or is that tonight?
Slowcoach is definitely a very speedy runner. I remember her well from a few years back.
I ran a fastish 3.1 miles this morning followed by a slower 2.7 miles. Total of 5.8 miles
3.1 miles ran in 27.31 mins, av pace 8.52 mmilling, av HR 129, MHR 159 I think the age grading for this is 86.58%
Then the 2.7 miles in 27.23 mins, av pace 10.11 mmilling, av HR 132
Good luck Graham. The new club vest will make you a winner
I have no history of singing, other than that which I did at school. I was at a Church school where music was very important and where I loved the singing so after many years I knew the time was right to take it up again.
I had a long chat with Chouette earlier today. She is doing very well, she is working hard, gardening and singing whist making weekly trips to the hospital (quite some considerable way away) for her treatment. Both her parents passed away, earlier this year, within a month of each other which I think was quite hard for her. But, as ever, she remains very positive about life and is making the most of it to.
I must have miss remembered! I blame my age for that indiscretion! Well it has to come in useful for something! Having seen you run a 5k race, I would say that you don't land much on your heel at all, but of course maybe you do when running for much further when tired.
Not good what is happening to you, not fair either.
To do the same time as last month when you have very recently completed a long run is excellent progress.
aws seems to be missing.
Just keep plodding out a regular few miles and you will regain fitness again, your body has a good bank deposit to draw on,
That sounds like the last interval system has been completed before your race,
We go on holiday in less than 2 weeks time and there is a lot going on before that time, so I have decided to only run every other day when possible to conserve my energy which seems to be in short supply at the moment! However, having said that I may have to run consecutive days sometimes in order to get 4 runs in a week.
On the whole I will attempt to run a little faster to raise my HR. Running faster for 5k when I have 2 miles still to run in order to get home again, is a good because the faster 5k raises my HR nicely thus it is raised considerable for the homeward 2 miles.
