Tracey well done on your 10 mile race, great time.
TS that was a nice recovery run, looks like the first mile you were having to encourage the legs to move. After the tiredness yesterday it may have just helped your recovery. I too need to get faster and lose weight, 20lbs would be good - target is by the end of the year so that I'm in a good place for 2014.
A very gentle 2.8 miles at 9.30 pace, I had all sorts of tight bits and pieces but they eased off a bit before the end. I also had my massage which found even more sore and tight bits but hopefully by Wednesday they will feel the benefit fully.
Hopefully tonight I'll be passing the Joggers website over to someone else. You're right I had before but the "new" host went bust and the website disappeared - that's what happens when you don't take action asap. Fortunately we still had the old contract, because they hold the domain name, and could reactivate the web builder package so muggins offered to set up some holding pages.
I think my time as a member of the Joggers is coming to an end as the after effects of all the hassle a couple of years rumble on, luckily there are a number of other good clubs around here.
TS they certainly did, but must build them in regularly now otherwise there will be no improvement in pace. Good run this morning, perhaps it was just the build up of miles you've exposed your body to recently rather than being this one run that caused the tiredness. Hope the meal goes well.
Managed 12.6 flat miles at 9.06 pace, fairly happy with that. Longest run since January 2012, except for 2 x 13's in Oct and then Gosport Half in the November. I was tired, I did sleep and missed the time slot to put the roast spuds on - the mash was good lol.
Short'ish run first thing tomorrow as I have a massage mid morning.
No running this week due to getting guest room finalised for Hannah whilst I was in Crewe, then the couple days in Crewe and yesterday I was on standby to help the gardner with the railway sleepers.
we had amazingly clear up to and back from Crewe, glad we went up the night before as my Aunts brother was late after being held up for 2hrs on the M25. It was nice warm (in the sun) day, perfect to say our final goodbyes. It was nice to see my cousin again and catch up her and her sister's children, always scary as we see them rarely these days and you forget how old they are - the eldest is now 42!! Established from Mum that she had been best friends with my Aunt since 1938.
Today decided I would try and add the first bits of speed work back into my running as I was starting to worry I was becoming a bit one paced. Warmed up for a mile and then did 3 x 1 faster/1 recovery miles sets. Managed 7.51, 7.46 and 7.56 (sounding a bit like an engine on the Bluebell Line). Not brilliant but have to be satisfied really.
Glad the compression tights are helping Ceal. Disappointing attitude from the young GP, wonder if it would have been the same answer for a younger world class athlete - I doubt it.
Mick, Graham and Ts are training and performing fantastically.
Mick/NZC well done both on your 5k's, really good times.
Pammie glad you got the new job and that it will let you run more Park Runs, that must be good.
I've managed 26 miles this week, legs are very tired at moment and breathing still difficult in the first mile but getting there.
Running might be a bit restricted this week as we are up to Crewe on Wednesday/Thursday for my Aunties funeral. I think I won a "discussion" with my father for the first time when I told him he wasn't driving up to Crewe and that myself, sister and b-i-l would take them - one win in 50+ years, not a good average lol.
