It seems running has turned into a dangerous sport of late with various falls. I hope all those ill or injured are back on the roads soon.
Nice character building 20 there TR.
Steve6 - not the result you wanted but still a great session on tired legs.
I had the pleasure to bump into Dan this morning. He is look lean and ready for Barcelona in 2 weeks.
As it is my birthday today I decided to take it easy at parkrun and do a medium long run today so I can enjoy beer and wine later. I am 47 today so I think I have caught up with TR , though I doubt I would ever catch up with him in a race!). I know Wardi is (ahem) of mature years - do we have any other more 'experienced' runners?
My running is similar to yours at the moment, lots of easy running close to 8mm. Still not been able to do any speedier stuff so no target is set for VLM. I will see what shape I am in come mid March but suspect my target will be just to get round and enjoy it this year.
KD - nice part of the alps, I spent a week cycling around Le Grand Bornand a few years ago. It was the year the TdF arrived on Bastille day and had the depart the next day. Great fun and some amazing rides. Sorry to hear your injuries aren't getting better - sounds liek you know a couple of days rest will help.
Selbs - you really are having a tough time of late, I hope you are back to fine health again soon. Did you manage manage to pick up your teeth, in the hope they could stick em back in? Or wasn't that your mind at the time?
Lev_ shame you are not able to run as much as you like in Kenya but the runs you have done must be magic. Nice idea to extend your trip as well!
Well after my acute injury on Sunday and tentative run yesterday. I managed to knock out 18 miles this morning. I am pretty sure Saturday's jump on the kerb made my quad spasm and the (slight) rest and foam rolling sorted it out. Just got to make sure I don't fall over on way back from boozer tonight.
Padams - seems like you are getting in great shape for VLM
Nice Bramley runs from Dan and Joolska. Cracking run from Ryan - 20 @ MP must be pretty daunting as a 'training run'. SL - great time and must be pleasing for it come in at below marathon HR. AL_P - well executed run, most be hard to have all the pace changes.
Speedy - well planned 30k and big weekly mileage
KD - well done on the hillreps, where in the Alps are you? I try to cycle up some cols most years.
PP - nice long run and breakfast
RS - well don on parkrun PB
Bains - pleased you are getting back to some running.
After binning my long run yesterday after a few miles, I spent some, less than enjoyable, time on the foam roller. It seems to have done the trick and I managed a gentle 6 miles today. I can still feel the quad/VMO is tight so will treat it to another bashing on the roller later.
