It's a long time since I covered 30 miles or more in a week, must be years ago at that! Good to see you are still doing the business of maintaining your all-round fitness. V.nice splits in the 10k too.
Yes, I'm glad it was just the Garmin that died too .
I know it is ages since posting on here but I have done very little running for the past few weeks. Which is the main reason for my absence. Seem to be picking up niggles too often, I am putting it down to feeling my age! In the meantime did mixtures of jog and a lot of walking so I haven't stopped altogether.
Broke the spell today with a 4 mile outing though it felt much of a struggle. Mile times 12.14 11.40 until Garmin battery failed then it was 2 further miles around 11.30 min.miles.
Sorry for the short input and for my lack of appearance, hope to do better in future(slaps wrist).
You have had some trouble with hip I gather, however you returned with a decent run today so sounds like you are now okay again.
Please convey my congrats to Sharkie on her excellent age grade sprint.
OK, you're right off course, it is never too late to re-start on strength/stability exes. I should know better, after next week's holiday I shall have to sort myself out ! It's also often said you are never too old to start running and I was a pensioner when starting out. So it must apply to improving muscle strength too.
Your training to me sounds as good as you were 10 years ago, it sure is impressive recently.
Modest running again today...3 miles mid afternoon in cloudy humid conditions. Just not used to creating a sweat on and a red face after a short run. Legs seem more tired these days, yet breathing is not so bad. Heart rate maxed around 140.
