impressive pace there Andrew! I used to use runkeeper app and similarly the garmin always measured shorter. The garmin is more accurate for the simple reason it records your position much more frequently than the free apps i.e. over 100m the app might only work out speed and distance over 3 reference points recorded whereas the garmin will take maybe 10 reference points of your position along the same distance. Therefore by nature of it collecting data more often it has to be more accurate. If that makes sense?!
Carter - I would agree .. build the mileage on your long run.
Mental monday at work today so didnt get running until after 10pm tonight. Ran a gentle 5 miles @ 9mml pace on the treadmill. Groin felt further improved but not completely gone. Proving a slow one to resolve
Oirish - no lasting damage from your bambi on ice moment which is great!
I have only run 3 times in the last 2 weeks now cos of this groin strain and am hating it! Spent today giving car a thorough post-winter valet including de-tar and polish followed by a tense 90 mins watching the Gunners do just enough to secure CL football for next season
A gentle run scheduled in for tomorrow evening to assess the groin niggle... Keep insisting with Mrs RickyW that a massage in the affected area will work wonders but she's not having it!
So Carl - am I right in thinking you are next up for racing duty? How's the ankle today?
Carl - I just got P&D the other day after good reports all round - I plan to use one of their schedules for Dublin
You will remember mention of my 16.5 stone white kenyan running pal - using a P&D plan he ran 3:17 in Dublin last year off the back of a 1:36 HM @ GNR several weeks prior. That impressed me & has me thinking there must something in this P&D stuff!
Dd - congrats on the PB... that's a great 10k time. I'm sure sub 45 is just around the corner!
Carl - another fine mess! Gutting mate - hopefully nothing to serious.
Good news at the doc's Rachel - I agree that the running doesn't seem to be having any detrimental effects on your condition. If it was me I would throw caution to the wind and get stuck into those PB's! Great time to be upping your training in the better weather & brighter evenings!
