Running going well thanks Nutty - did bite off more than I could chew yesterday with an interval session on the treadmill... planned to do 4x800m at 5K race pace, 4x600m +0.1kph then 4x400m +another 0.1kph and 4x200m again with another 0.1kph and 200m recoveries.... managed the 800m and 600m sets, but keep upping the speed was just that bit too much for me! - I hadn't really taken on board just how much further the distance would have been compared to what I have been doing - upping the speed and distance is a defo recipe for disaster! Ended up at just over 8k, so not to be sniffed at in the end
farming calendar moving along... be shearing time soon, then haymaking... all good fun
Can you watch sat in the garden Tracey - far too nice today to be indoors unless you have to be. Don't overdo it, nice glass of wine this afternoon should be about right
Good you have advice Nutty, do you have an achievable plan, or just going with what feels OK?
We had a bash at the Cross Hands Park Run again yesterday - kinda figured I would chase down Boff Jnr and beat him in a sprint finish... his last time was 24:20 and my best on the treadmill was 24:30, so figured it may be doable? He was ahead of me all the way - just in sight, gave him some 'encouraging' verbal abuse when I saw him start to walk about 700m to go - off he shot and that was the last I saw of him until the finish!! He came in at 23:28 with me gasping in at 23:57 - so I beat his previous time but the little so and so posted a quicker one I am quite sure he will be a good sub 20 when he finds his feet. My old standing PB of 22:09 is well in danger! Sweetie was planning on a 29:30 and got herself a 29:29 so she was well chuffed as well
Bit of lawn mowing in the sunshine this morning - then giving the clippings to the calves in the barn - recycling at it's best
I am pleased to officially say I am running again Restricted to low miles, but tidy times (24:30 5K on the treadmill) and have ran 71 miles in total this year; considering I broke my back 18 months ago, I am pretty chuffed with that
Sweetie is running short distances to avoid injury and even the Boffettes are beginning to run!
So all looking quite promising thanks Nutty Very disappointing for you though that you are still being plagued by your leg Do you know what the issue is? Have you sought 'professional' opinion?
Being outdoors in the spring is good for the soul... going out feeding the sheep and their lambs can be a major trip hazard though!!
