LMH - the funny thing is that I don't feel I've worked especially hard. By sticking in HR Z2 as an average, the training has been sustainable - effort-wise anyway. The challenge is always fitting it all in! A 2:17 marathon makes my eyes water...I remember reading a quote somewhere that said something along the lines of "Imagine running as fast as you can, then doing that for 26.2 miles." Going to go and look up Joe's result now. Good run there Don Nice to be able to support without marshalling, plus some kms as well Ale
Well done Gobi. Good luck today to Joe and anybody else racing. Nice miles Chicksta and LMH
12 miles done for me. Longest I think since 2011. Felt good for most of it and felt a bit fatigued going back up the hill to home! Loads of helicopter flypasts on the Severn Bridge due to big NATO exercise taking place last week and next...wasn't expecting any movement today though! Great fun.
What: 12 mile d&d in Z2 Why: long run Sunday Last hard: Dunno Last rest: Wednesday Lyrics: No
Well done Joe, Donaldo, and Mrs Donaldo on your Parkruns. Birks - that's a long one for a Saturday. Hope it goes quickly for you. Ditto AOH with your CPD.
Really good ride out today for me. Felt strong on bike (for me) and averaged over 16mph. Lovely weather too and the Wye valley looked lovely. Just need to keep upping the mileage now...consistent consistency!!
What: 30 miles bike with 842 metres of climbing Why: Bike day Last hard: not today strangely Last rest: Weds Lyrics: nope
Good to see you Gobi...good mileage! Hope everybody has got the nice weather that we have in SE Wales...better than Bilbao by the sounds of it Alehouse? LMH - been on bike yesterday for an hour as part of the plan. Problem was it was on the turbo and in my conservatory...it was hot! Does it count as warm weather training? Nowhere near as much fun as being outside. Looking forward to longer ride tomorrow. Hope your taper is going as well as it can!
What: 45 min Z2 run Why: plan Last hard: windy riding last week Last rest: 2 days Lyrics: I know them but cannot remember the name of the song.
