Ollie - Good going on the 20, and good total for the week. You'll be very confident of sub 3 after the summer you've had!
One brief moment of amusement in the midst of all this injury carry on. As it's an achilles injury, I've been given calf strengthen exercises to do. But I already have the biggest calves known to man (ok, slight exaggeration but my right calf is a touch under 21 inches around as it is... And I am only 5'6 or so) now I'm never going to find trousers or jeans that fit
Cal - Amazing stuff!! Very well done Very solid pacing there too
I'd pin the improvements more on the more running than the weighing less. I had a skim through my racing weights this year a few weeks back. Lightest (11'0 for 3:34 at Manchester) yielded the worst result, heaviest (11'6 - 83:55 HM) the best And I could do with dropping towards 10'7. Weight loss makes a difference, but I doubt as much as is claimed.
Ollie - Well done on the usual 2nd place, good total for the day.
Fiona - Well done on the brisk 20!
Gaz - Hope you got the MP run in
Not a lot to shout about here.
Wed - Weights and 30 minutes on elliptical at gym Thurs - 35 minutes on elliptical Friday - Weights plus 45 minutes Sat - weights plus an hour Sunday - Weights plus and hour
Fiona - I'm not really a cyclist! People on bikes look too serious for me
Good training this week, sensible decision to walk up hill to save the ankle
OH - That sounds fun
Gaz - Another very good quality run
Ollie - Well done on the 7 and 14
Dr Dan - Well done on the tri. The 10 miler sounded a tough outing though!
Cal - Good luck with the half No pressure this week after last weeks time
Gym the last 2 nights, weights plus 30 odd minutes of elliptical. I can still feel discomfort on that, but it must be better for me as I'm not bouncing off a concrete path. I was told I can run, but not sure I see the point if it's only 3 or 4 x 3 or 4 miles each week. 10-15 miles seems pointless when you're used to 60. I might do a few miles tomorrow while taking the club session.
A couple of clubmates are certain my issues come from the way I run (you'll not find anyone who runs higher up on there toes than me) , and while I'm now more inclined to agree with them, I still won't be trying to change my stride.
I'm allowed to run as long as there is almost no pain. So basically my mileage is going to be utterly decimated. Not expecting to be logging any more than 10 miles/week for a while. Physio reckons complete recovery will take about 3 months. Ah well, I'll have to learn to swim...
