Shades - it is quite painful but only when I run. Walking and cycling aren't affected thankfully..
I am really enjoying the marathons at the moment and much prefer the low key ones. I will do more with the group that organise them..booked one for the 11/11/17 which had a really cool medal and what a way to remember the fallen.
afternoon folks, thought id pop in and say hi and see how everyone is doing!
Happy belated birthday Big_G, hope it was a good one.
I haven't run since my double cause I have picked up an injury which has happened from doing too much. I have been told that with a few week rest I should be able to run again so i have decided to take the rest of the year off from running and just keep the fitness up by getting on the bike. I think the physio said it was abductor tendonitis. I will listen to what i have been told cause i have already booked my first three races for next year. (all marathons, one of which is a trail one)
Shades - I think you're right. It's quite a buzz doing the back to back marathons. I'm going to take 6 weeks of from running as little niggles are starting to show so some rest is needed but I'll maintain my cardio by swimming and cycling. Then onto VLM training.
Mamafox - Yeah I'm still doing the low Carb. Saturdays run was done completely fasted with no Carb loading the night before and ionly ate something at around 3pm..Energy levels are permanently full and I love it.
When I get home I'll sit down and write a race report
Big _G - legs are pretty stiff but other than that I'm feeling good..
Not such a good thing about your heart rate. Keep an eye on that and if it happens regularly then I'd say to see the Doc.
My body temp was very low the other day. I ran 16 miles in 10degree clear weather and when I came home it measured 34.1 so pretty low and took ages to return to normal bit I didn't feel overly hot or cold.
Well that's marathon no.2 done. Much better conditions, chilly but sunny. Slightly muddy with the odd puddle. Started on pretty tired legs but they soon eased off, I ran with a guy for most of the time which was nice to have an easy pace and chat. The last 3 laps I was out on my own and I crossed the line in 3:24 and came 1St so really happy worth the weekends results.
