Gul, forgot, you kind of are our vampire runner (Gul/Drac o clock). Hills are certainly a relative thing based on where you live. Last fall I ran a course that was flat for my normal digs. A few guys local to there were complaining bitterly about the hills while I was luxuriating. I like PB attempts though so would be shooting for more flat. Figure I have a few more years to try and peak...after that maybe I'll go more scenic/bucket list.
BI, that sounds nasty. Glad you are starting to feel better.
KR, hope the backside is back to good today.
Lots and lots of sun here and I am in July tan condition already. Heading out now for a sunny easy run.
GM, Thanks for the yoga details. I like the sound of it. BTW, the only race I've penciled in is a fall (autumn!) marathon.
Gul, nice stride incorporation into a (nearly) MLR.
PMJ, hope you found your mojo today.
BI, good to hear you are feeling healed. Great news and just in time.
KR, very speedy run there. Yes, night time marathon run would be awesome MsE.
BTW MsE, sorry to hear about your Achilles. But I bet the weeks off will do wonders for you in general (and heal the Achilles). A proper rejuvenation after the marathon. But a bummer to miss that trail race.
Poacher, super bummer. We need to find the person setting all those rakes up around you. You're due a really good stretch of injury free running!
13 w/10 at subLT for me today. Hot out there. Held up OK but this one was harder than the past few (this after 2 days off) so am ready for my cutback week coming up. Blister area was a bit tender today. Wasn't sure whether the sock was going to be bloody or clean at the end of the run. Happy to report (w/out visuals) that the sock was clean (but affected area a beautiful shade of deep red that you'll just have to imagine)...
I just got back from a 13 w/10 at subLT. 6:5X ave and HR about 78% ave too on the fast miles. Hot out there and had to work harder on this one than the past few. Ready for a cut back week (Especially considering I took the past 2 days off due to a bad blister...was expecting to be very fresh but not the case).
OK, OK, no more pics! Will clean up my act. Today will just say it feels much better. Maybe not ready for a run though (but my legs feel really nice after resting yesterday).
GM, sorry to hear of your woes. Hope things change soon and you can get back into the swing to things. Interested to hear how the yoga is impacting you. I've been told I could use strong doses of it (or pilates?). I'm a very inflexible chap apparently.
Jools, good luck on the race. Perhaps you'll be surprised (in a good way)!
BI, yes, crush it today instead. Like that plan. Good luck getting mentally prepared for that race. When is it again?
Abbers, howdy and congrats on the new job/commute change. Glad to hear you'll be getting so much time back for the more important stuff (like running!).
