NN - Shame about the race being cancelled, pain in the arse when your plans get changed isn't it? Nice run today!
Tek - Good run earlier. I'm in the same boat as you, I want to run sub 90 and I'm confident I will at Inverness. Problem is there is a good chance I'll still be broken 4 weeks later and that's no use. I picked up an injury at Alloa this year and still had it when Lochaber came round.
I've noticed theres a half in Blackpool (which is no more hassle to get to than Inverness) on Feb 23, which would be ideal if it wasn't my brothers birthday that day...
Fiona - Surely the D33 isn't a great idea pre-marathon? Isn't it only about 4/5 weeks before London usually?
12 miles with 7 at an optimistic MP. (ave. 7:38)
HR obviously a wee bit higher than I could sustain for a marathon, but not ridiculously high. Felt quite tough, but I've done little running between 6:40-9:40m/m recently...
Tek - I take it you aren't looking forward to doing it again this weekend then?
HM - Probably the best idea, not worth hurting the hip more!
NN - Good running, I think I might sorta follow the 18/70 plan from 12 weeks out, but without the doubles.
Stewart - Hope you managed to get to the gym.
Having a hunt for a suitable spring half, Inverness looks my best bet but would prefer something earlier. There's a half in Edinburgh the weekend before, but it's 7 and a half laps of a park and a pretty small affair at that.
The local spring races have moved, so Alloa is now only 2 weeks before Lochaber and my hometown 10k is the same day as the marathon. So will have to miss both
NN - A plan that starts with a rest day sounds a good plan to me Are you doing the up to 70 mile plan?
Tek - Nice easy run this morning, and nice total last week I think it must be about time for the new years race list;)
MG - Good 10 mile run. Still plenty of time to get the mileage built up for you!
RW - Those are fantastic time, especially off such low mileage.
Fiona - Good total last week, sounds like an enjoyable long run on Sunday
30 minutes upper body weights in the gym this morning, and 6 mile run tonight. Hadn't planned to run, but didn't sleep this afternoon so won't be able to run tomorrow morning. HR a wee bit higher than it has been, but not by much.
Stewart - Hopefully the rest does the job. Remember that it's probably worth having the full week off, even if the pain is gone is a couple of days.
MG - Cracking long run this morning
Tek - Good running today, and that sounds like quite an exciting outing tomorrow
HM - Hope you manage to get out tomorrow.
Times from parkrun still not up, but I've seen a guy (who looks like the guy who finished right in front of me) put his time up on Fetch, as 19:36. So I'd be around 19:40. Given the underfoot conditions I should be happy with that, I'll need to see how last weeks times compare to todays. My footwear completely stuffed me on the (half mile?)section of frozen grass, I found it almost un-runnable. Confident enough that I lost 20 seconds or so.
Gym once I got back. Some quick and light squats and deadlifts, and wee bit of core work.
