Some nice long runs going on too CD, Wardi, ThR & Jools
Just a ploddy 6 on Saturday morning for me followed by 13 on Sunday. Would have liked to have got 16 in but had some family commitments. Anyway happy P&D day to other converts who are targeting VLM. I'm a little nervous this time round, previously I've gone into it in decent shape but this year I have no chance of hitting HMP or target MP in the early weeks. Got to remember that 18 weeks is plenty of time to get there.
CW - I do wonder, is the thought of getting in trouble with TR going through your mind when your in the middle of these long runs?
TT/Tmoth - Hope you feel better soon
Jools - I always find the club is the best place to go when those cobwebs need dealing with
I backed up Tuesdays reps with 13 miles on Wednesday, so just an easy 6 mile plod yesterday plus the prescribed exercises from the physio. Have some shorter reps planned for tonight & then the P&D schedule for VLM starts next week!
Agree that the Asics app sounds irresponsible to say the least, hope someone gets them in some trouble.
ThR - I agree that's a brisk 5 miles. If you are interested in the quad exercises PM me your details & I'll gladly forward the email. The frustrating thing about the knee is I can run absolutely fine & manage the discomfort, however it only gets worse the longer I push it.
Club session last night, 5 then 4 minute reps x 3 with 2 minute recoveries. Better than expected, oddly it seems the speed coming back after a terrible parkrun.
CW - Thanks, went to see the fizz this afternoon. Reckons my left quad is slightly underdeveloped compared to my right which is causing some instability issues with the knee cap which results in the tendon pain. Giving me some strength & stretching exercises to do & encourages plenty of ice, good news is I can keep up the running for now at least.
Will be keen to see if any of his exercises match yours, though I suspect he may not suggest using a bible
