VT, Brilliant run! Makes all that hard work worth it Great write up as well, think my HR went over 80% just reading it lol.
chick, my apologies if this makes you feel shit but it gives me a boost ... I know your on your way back but I can (almost) do 6 miles averaging 10mm's @68% - does this mean (one day) I might bash out 7mm's??
Maybe not as 7:22 is my fastest mile lol.
The Isle of Mull is on lock down (as is most of the Western Isles) winds are meant to drop later today but currently in excess of 70 knots here!!
Nayan, congratulations on what (I guess) is a massive PB for such a quick time
Tek, sorry to hear it's pneumonia, Frankfurt will be there next year and as others have said, look after yourself and come back slowly and stronger!
Plus one for the 'where is VT' comments, hope all is well!
Brian, rather than Brian Jnr kicking your butt am sure your a decent dad and let him win
Dr.Dan, am sure any (more) MP stuff would wear you down so maybe it was a good idea to miss them - good luck for next Monday
Hi Johnny, not sure where you live but most of my runs have an average incline of 80-100 feet. It's taken almost a year but have finally managed to reduce my HR going up though it is probably still too high. I used to let it climb to around 85% then dawdle downhill but am currently trying to run nearer 70% downhill and run (much slower) uphill trying to cap it at 75-77% uphill.
I think the trick is to try and get my minimum and maximum HR closer to the 70% rather than running at 65-85% like I have been doing (if any of that makes sense?).
All that will probably go out of the window now as TM season seems to be upon me.
Another (very) easy week... 26.65 miles in 4:30 (10:08mm's) @68.09%AHR.
Steph, am sure many (most) people would have gone for a DNS and you have had a pretty shit year health/injury wise!
Look at this as the end of the year, rest, relax and recuperate with just short easy runs until Christmas then bounce back ino the New Year with an A, B and (maybe) a C race, well spaced out and let every thing else be considered a training run.
This years mileage will stand you in good stead for a great 2015
