Cool, very windy, cloudy here, but no rain. L35 coachee tells me she is sitting outside a pub in London in the warm sunshine (following a decent parkrun "win" this morning). Just like summer here (i.e. cool, cloudy etc).
What: 66 mins/11.5k 2/3rds off road, nice and easy after 2 hours cross training in the garden Why: LS(aturday)R, and garden needs attention
Dibs: was thinking about your hips whilst running. Hope you don't mind! I always say that if both hips (ankles/calves/knees etc) ache equally then it is not an injury but a general lack of strength in the area. I get quite tender hips on longer runs, particularly on hilly parts: I just put it down to hip flexors that are not quite up to the job in hand, and the only "cure" is to run more longish slow runs to build up that strength.
What: 7.13 (k, not m) Why: consistent consistency and 40 mins is the new 30.
Pammie: whilst I use "consistent consistency" I stole the phrase from someone else. Frank Horwill, I think! Prefer "progressive consistent consistency", i.e. each month being faster or more volume than the previous one, rest months, illness and injuries being exceptions
OH: sorry. You are a runner. After all we ran together, so if you are not a runner neither am I! Although I have to admit today I didn't even feel like a jogger! Surprisingly tender after yesterday's short quicker stuff.
