Ran to bootcamp this morning, worked my arse off whilst at bootcamp and then ran home again. Felt really good but shattered now. Debating whether to bother with this 5k race tonight or not. At the moment I really can't be arsed and the weather is looking grim
Don't worry, definitely not going to make that mistake again. Did spin this morning and enjoyed it, will either be a short pootle or just core work tonight.
Long run plans a bit messed up as I have a christening on Sunday morning, followed by the post-Christening shin dig, followed by a meal with the inlaws so no time for running .
I have a 5k race on Saturday night, but it's going to be more about the social aspect than any hard running. So I might try and do about 10 miles on Saturday afternoon? I'm not bothered about a time for the race and the up to 55 plan is only a 14 mile run anyway, so I'll still cover that amount of miles in total during the day. Then back onto the usual mix of the up to 55 and 55-70 plan next week.....does that sound okay?
And she's back!!! Nowt like a good track session to sort you out . Plan was 5x800 but some club mates were doing 6 x 1000m with 200m recoveries so I joined in with them. Efforts done at a smidge faster than 10k pace. Just felt really good to moving properly again and legs felt nice and bouncy.
Another plod last night. Still struggled but felt significantly less....lumpy. Going down to the track tonight for intervals with a few others from the club. That will hopefully get me back into the swing of things!
Leslie - 14 miles with 8 miles tempo? Ouch!
br - 3:05 sounds like a sensible goal. Sub 3 for the next one though
15w - yep, you definitely need to visit Rivera Maya. Absolutely stunning place. I couldn't believe just how many trees there were! Hope your niggles disappear soon.
brixtonrunner - you're training is going brilliantly at the moment! Surely you must have revised your time goal now? Would definitely recommend Mexico, although going for longer would be better with such long flight times. December-March is the best season, as whilst it will still be hot in summer, it's their rainy season. We stayed in Rivera Maya, which is on the East coast of Mexico and the Caribbean sea. Much nicer and quieter than somewhere like Cancun.
Westy - really hoping it will come back soon. As you say, slowly and surely hopefully. To echo brixtonrunner, how's your training been going?
And everybody else? How's things? I think I read somewhere that slowkoala got a stonking PB the other week? Anyone else?
