Ah 6ft, yeah, I am 6ft 1 so seems about right. It says my body fat should get down to just under 15% but then as I have no idea what it is now seems a bit moot! Your scales sound very clever, mine are in KGs and down by my feet so have to guess what they are reading because my eyesight is sh*te, ha.
spinning, get HR upto about 125-130 by the end, monitor works ok on the TT. Plan to do some XCountry skiing once the conditions get better. Just done some hill reps 1*1mile and 7*400metres (100ft of climb). The other problem I have is my feet dry out up here and crack which at present has resulted in a small split in my right heel and forefoot and arather larger gash in my left, about 1inch which is pretty painful especially at the start of a run. Altogether with the sore achillies and the days worth of limping motivation is proving pretty tricky at the moment.
Belated Merry Xmas and happy New Year to you all, sorry not been on earlier. Was just going to read back a couple of pages but then you see something that sounds interesting so tyou go back further, oh well hope I didn't miss anyone.
SB - sounds like you are on course. DanA nice training CC2 great inter-counties result TTop - Big miles, hard this time of year CDave - Good job marshalling CW - good mileage. I am trying higher foot lift but only to above the knee to bring my glutes in to play when running, thus taking the pressure off my thighs. TR - How did the foootball go after that, wow. Its great to get the incidental mileage in a commute, its like not losing any time for other things. Wish I could. TheJimbob - you are going well at 7:48 and 144beats Joolska - getting the mileage up , great. I'm rubbish running in the mornings, its good to get it out of the way though. ESheep - Bring you in under 3 DanA - Sounds like you are going well. Yes can be horrible running this time of year, though sometimes its fantastic. And you are certifiable by those runs, 67 miles, lol. TTock - Good to get the mileage under the belt this time of year. ONo7 6:16, thats fab running Padams - Glad the calf is holding up Dachs - Know what you mean about the routine and keeping up the running. Shame about the county vest, sounds pretty competetive. Hope the knee is OK. StJ - Pretty good week considering, especially with not running very far in any one go. SL - Wow, amazing after 3 poor months. S6 - Welcome Toro - Ferry commute, fab Bainspj - Easing in nicely Tmoth - You must be tall. How do you calculate your body fat? came out 158 with leaving the body fat at 20. I usually get down to about 164/166 but I drink far too much to get much lower I suspect. I would like to get below 160, Had a high of about 175 recently but hit 180 breifly a year or 2 ago Hope I didn't miss anyone or anything important.
Partners - Mine doesn't run at all, but bizarely seems to like to come and watch. That can be quite stressful as I like to get to races an hour before and she likes to cut things really fine so often better on my own. Always a pain waiting for prixes if I win one. She is good though as it does take some time.
Sorry been away for a while done the usually move over to the French Alps back to altitude and no where flat . Makes training quite difficult. Managed to get a few runs in, though suffering a bit. My left ankle seems to completely stiffen up after a run and my achillies is also quite sore which leaves me hobbling for a couple of days so haven't been able to run more than every 3rd day. I have started some long runs which started with just under 15miles(8:27 a mile, HR152) and 3k ft of climb. A week later, with only 1 run inbetween did 18miles (7:37 mile, HR 159) 2.7k ft of climb. Now the 18 miler was interesting I am having trouble with the HR monitor (its a wrist one) and it only seems to work when its really tight, now it was -12 at the time and I think my wrist swelled a bit and my hand started going numb, tried various combinations with no joy. The temp wasn't too bad, had my thick leggings on except at the start, cold hands, after a while I warmed up a bit but got cold 'nethers' and was really cold for the last couple of miles. Hand still has some pins and needles, probably not good! Did 19 miles a couple of days ago (7:25 MILE hr 172 but think its not working properly though it was quite tough, though it was high at places where it should have been low) 2448ft of climb - managed to find a flatish one! Been filling up the non running days with skiing (not much) and the turbo tr ainer, 50-60mins
