4 weeks done and dusted of low carb high fat eating with a weight loss of 16lbs. Not one drop of alcohol has touched my lips. Today, though, is carb day and I've already had some carbs ! A meal and beers later. For one day only. Not running today as its treacherous out there, ice everyw.
Sense - I see what you mean now. I can be like that for the first 2/3 miles of a run but once I've dialed in to that pace I'm not too bad. It's a pain in the arse but I will spend the first couple of miles looking at my watch to get my pace right. Hopefully, eventually, I will master this skill without having to keep doing this.
Sense - nice run from you last night. Your pacing for miles 5-8 look pretty decent to me, only a 17 second variation, I would be happy with that. And bearing in mind that mile 7 was net downhill I don't think you should be too disappointed by the pace.
Everyone seems to be doing some MP miles already, maybe I'd better think about introducing some !
We have about a foot of snow here in Sheffield at the moment. It was freezing overnight so not the best of conditions here at the moment, any running will be done with fell shoes on. 5 miles for me yesterday with 3 @ tempo pace. A cut back week for me in which I've done 2 runs for a total of 9 miles and I will aim to get another 5/6 miles in tomorrow.
Ali - I stand in the camp of all out and see what happens. If you don't go all out you will never know what you could achieve. If you do go all out then you could well end up with a great race.
Carl - running at work at lunchtime is great I think. You can do a nice quick session, get showered, have your lunch and it's done and dusted for the day.
Washwood - sounds like your running well at the moment.
About a foot of snow here in Sheffield yesterday. Frozen overnight so in some places it's a tad hazardous. I can see the snow covered peaks in the distance and I'm tempted to get out there but it's a cut back week this week so I need to show some self control.
Weigh in day on Friday and I've lost another 2lbs, thats a total of 16lbs in 4 weeks. I have now gone 27 days without alcohol too which I'm amazed I've managed to do so easily. Looking forward to a couple of beers tomorrow though then back on the wagon from Sunday
