After my 'impromptu'' night on Friday, first XC went pretty well yesterday finishing 27th in Div 2 of the Birmingham XC League. Today I've just been out for a steady 13 at 7:25 m/m avg. Heavy legs!
Whilst out I was listening to the latest Marathon Talk podcast, quite an interesting interview with a chap who lived in Ethiopia for 3 years living and running with the locals.
Happy Sunday all, look forward to hearing about everyone else's running exploits.
Evening all. Impromptu date night with the missus, 'lets go for a pint' resulted in 5 pints and a curry. The curry house gave us free desert, double baileys and a brandy EACH, and then sweets after. I'm enjoying myself before the 18 week P&D 70-85 schedule starts......right? Plus, my girlfriend is American so had to drown her sorrows after the US presidential election results this week.
Needless to say, XC should be interesting tomorrow.
JCG - Good to hear you ran pain free!
Runspoon - Also living in Worcester at the moment, moved down here last year. Let me know if you need any info!
Just a steady 6 miler for me tonight, after 10 last night with some tempo thrown in. Devastated to find that all my activities have randomly vanished from my Garmin! First XC on Saturday, so will be resting tomorrow.
HA - That's some impressive midweek mileage! Keep up the good work! (I'd be eating everything in the cupboard if I were you)
Runspoon - Are you living in Worcester?
Macca - Enjoy the lakes! Perfect place to test out the new Soloman's!
Feeling pretty chuffed with a 34:39 PB at Leeds Abbey Dash today. Scary to think that I'll be starting the 70-85 P&W 18 week schedule NEXT MONTH, in prep for London! I'm planning on dropping one of the recovery days for a complete rest day though, anyone else done this? It will be a London debut for me, just debating on what time is realistic for me. I've had my target set on a sub 2.50 marathon, so thinking I'll aim for that and see how training goes in the coming month.
Shazmo - Hope NYC Marathon went well, I was watching a bit on Eurosport earlier. I have a friend who ran it and said it outshone London, probably one on the 'must do' list!
Hope everyone has had a great weekend of running and racing, look forward to the spring thread!
