MG - Good long run, especially with a half and marathon still in the legs On the spring marathon front, Barcelona sounds good still haven't decided if I'm running there yet! Saying that, there is quick a few good sounding Euro Spring efforts, good luck deciding
Got myself a pair of Nike trail trainers, as I've signed up for something a bit daft in April... Still need a pair of road trainers, as my Adios Boosts are utterly wrecked, so I'll try to drop a hint to someone to get me a pair for my birthday...
RJ - What distance is the Great South Run, half marathon?
7.7 with 23:27 parkrun. Had planned to run it at tempo effort but legs were like lead, so started off slow and sped up. I've already ran 45 miles this week, and have my long run (well, 13-15) tomorrow still to come Looking forward to not running on Monday, as I'm pretty tired
NN - Nice speedwork. 5:45 is flying! Good luck for Sunday
OH - Well done on sneaking a run in, and for hitting the 1000
kaz - That sounds nasty, hopefully it's not too long a recovery period!
Michael - I think my max HR is about 200, seen 199 a couple of times at the end of races so just use 200 to make the numbers easier. I have seen higher, but some of those readings are garbage. I actually spiked at 210 on my run earlier, while running 11 minute mile pace...
Nice couple of runs, and good luck for the half. Do you have a target time in mind?
Also good luck to Fiona, Jason, Stewart and RJ
3 very leisurely miles in new trainers. Edging closer to last years mileage total, should crack it next week.
OH - Well done on the wet 10, you should be good for the 100 from here?
kaz - What injury have you picked up? I think the cycling and swimming should help you keep a good level of fitness, hopefully you're back running soon though!
Fiona - How are you holding up?
Hope everyone else is doing well
4.5, 10 and 7 for the last 3 days. All easy running, been too windy to try anything quicker.
HR seems to dropped a lot the last few days for some reason, I done miles @ 9:30 last week at a HR of 158. Whereas my 10 last night, a few seconds slower but a lumpier route, averaged 145. Maybe this training (pretty much) everyday thing works for me, after all my 5k PB came off of 7 weeks of almost no rest days... Or maybe my HRM is just playing up
