Good going Rob, I'm going to try and get out tomorrow in the new trainers and do some mile effortts at least. Jonas - feel for you. All week - stop running, blow nose again. Chest is OK and legs feel OK, so going for it again.
I'm one of those 'Oil Tankers' when it comes to form..once I get going and train consistently it's all fine and get a head of steam up...but once I stop I find it bloody hard to get going again! I can feel it after only a week sometimes..
Body imperfections? I could do with an extra inch (no sniggering) between knee and ankle. Got quite a long body and femurs, but small shins. God knows if that would help...and we'll never know, of course
Amazingly the DS Trainers have already had an attempted delivery yesterday..I only ordered them in the morning! Looking forward to getting them on this afternoon. Cold still reluctant to finally go. Pencilling in a session on Saturday as we are going to Lee Valley as our god daughter is doing an indoor meeting.
Ugh - Still feel a bit crappy, hopefully this cold will go soon and I can get some training done..Interesting reading on weight loss. Just get so hungry after running!
Had a bit of a trainer saga - gutted that after a month I phoned up Up and Running and the Adidas Adios Boost were sold out anyway (after I was goimg to get them for £30)..and they had sent me an email on the 3rd January - that I didn't get..). So spoke to the bloke and decided on some Adidas Boost Techfit..he called back and said that although they were on the website - they had sold out too (and told the web people to sort their life out!)
ANYWAY...Have gone for some Asics DS Trainers, as remembered them being quite fast and enough support for the Reading Half and responsive enough for tempo stuff on the roads. Might see if they will do for Berlin. Well not everyone can wear Adios Boost I suppose!
Good intervals there Scott and great training from Matt too. I had a look through the ressies and I was top 100 last time at Brighton, so even though the race wasn't great, the quality was better this time around most said the qauality was Parliament Hill standard - which doesn't always happen when it's moved out of the capital. Our friend Eddie O'G gave me a tap and a word as he sped past..although basically trying to encourage a dead horse!!
Interesting about the results Ric - I'll have a look. Remember there is Sam Coombes knocking about (Dartford) who has already got AW muddled before!
Hi all - some great tempo stuff there. Not going to try it at the moment as it will just end in a coughing fit!
Very mediocre 138th at Brighton on Saturday for the southerns. Felt pretty good head wise in the morning, but the chest wasn't totally clear of muck - the race was probably a couple of days too soon. I considered dropping out on the first proper lap, but as always seems to happen, I was in the team, so didn't want to let anyone down. As often happens, had a bit of a 2nd wind and stopped being passed by everyone...although that only lasted one lap!
Hey ho - the missus ran the women's..so not sure if we would have done any better in the married couple race!
Think a couple of just running to and from work days and then a session on Thursday perhaps...
