Hi Malcs, I hate it when that happens. I use to be like it after my nights and being on call. I recall not sleeping at all after one of my night shifts...3 hours before I was due to go back into work I started to really panic as I had been awake for over 36 hours and i had an hours journey to work. I ended up calling in saying can I come in late and try and get an hour, with the pressure then off me (when they said yes) I managed to grab an hour before driving in. Luckily I only started my shift 30 mins late.
I think I get it far easier than you as I dont have children to look after too!
Im happy to do what evers easiest for you. I hate owing people money so I would prefer just to give it you now, but if its easier for you to have it on the day, then im sure I can manage to wait a month.
Really enjoyed the speed session, made a refreshing change. Today I did my LSR on the treadmil as it is too cold, wet and windy to run outside. I did 15 miles, with the middle 5 miles at my hopefully october MP (7:24m/m) and the rest slower at 8:20 m/m. I was pretty bored by 1.5 hours..been a while since ive done such a long run on the TM!
jen I love the sound of your breakfast run...maybe I should suggest it to one of my clubs! I have the isle of skye half in june and then it will be TR24 (after the three peaks challenge that is). How about you?
I set at level 1 (0-1.5% incline). I decided to do the first 5 miles slow, starting off steady and increasing my pace to 8:20 m/m, then the second 5 miles I did at hopefully my MP in october (7:24 min/mls) and then the last 5 miles at 8:20 m/m, speeding back up slowly to 7:30 min/mls for the last 10 mins. I felt surprisingly ok except for the last 30 mins...that took some effort to get through. I think I was mentally bored by this time...running outdoors is far more pleasant, interesting and fun!
Hi Angela, I don't really get to train with either of my clubs. I have done three training runs with knavesmires since I joined them a year ago and the last time I ran with my first claim club was about 6 weeks ago now. You dont have to run with them that often but when you do it makes a nice change and you get to meet new people. You also get a discount on race entry and in some sport shops and you get access to lots of closed races.
I use to like the long jump when I was younger. My parents use to help train the local TA's..I would go down and have a go on everything when I was a kid. I loved it.
Sorry to hear that you havent been feeling too great. there is a funny viral typeinfection circulating giving people a sore throat followed by a cold. Fingers crossed youve seen the back of it now. I would still be tempted to do the mile race...would be great to see how fast you are over the mile (as long as you warm up first). Might actually help your 10k by getting your legs moving again?
Hi Andy what are your plans for this weekend?
I did my LSR in the gym today as its far to cold, wet and windy outside. I was quite disappointed when I woke up and saw the weather as I had been looking forward to getting out. I decided to aim for 15 miles, the first hour i did it on the hill setting, level 2 (incline between 0-2.2%) and the second hour
I did my first speed/interval session yesterday since london marathon, the aim was km reps after a 2 mile warm up. I decided to run 5 x 1 km @ 6:35 min/mls with 2.5 mins recovery @ 9:13 min/mls, followed by a cool down mile....it was great to be back doing intervals, I loved it, so satisfying.
Today I just went on the exercise bike for 30 mins after work before they closed the gym...made a nice change and hopefully the (small amount of) cross training will help my running
