Very fast 5K Mennania, I agree with OO you and AR are the on form runners at the moment.
20 on a treadmill AR, ye gods!!
Cheers for the link Keir.
Congrats on the PB Lorenzo.
80 miles on the bike for me this morning, I wanted to get up to 100 but ran out of time as I was taking my son swimming. I didn't find the ride hard at all as you can have a good ol' nosh the whole time (one malt loaf and a large flapjack). Definitely easier than a 20 mile run.
After taking my son swimming, which was pretty energy sapping, he wanted to go out on his bike, I'd had enough of that for one day but what could I do? We were only out for about have an hour when I had a real big dip in energy and was feeling pretty shit. My son even asked if I was ok which is a first.......I'd boinked on a 3 mile ride. I got my sorry arse home and stuffed a couple of jam sarnies down which eased the shakes and that horrible spaced out feeling.
I ran six progressive miles at lunch time, 8, 7.5, 7, 6.5, 6 and 8. The 6.5 and 6 felt way, way too tough.
Glute and hip felt ok but are grumbling just a little now. My right Achilles is a bit tender.
That the trouble when you have one niggle you end up chasing others all around your legs.
JD3- 18 weeks of P&D is long enough, so just spend the next couple of months base building and getting the mileage up to a decent level. Then it will be an easier transition into the tough slog ahead.
Mennania- can you give me the link to that 10k plan, although I definitely will not, most probably, unlikely, maybe, might do it.
I did have it bookmarked but seem to have lost it.
