Steve - Well done on bagging that long run, but looking at your stats, your av HR was 221bpm!!! Can that be right?
Thats my irrational reading by my 310XT, have had no end of trouble with the HRM function, tried most things, replacing the battery, soaking the strap, using KY in lieu of electrode gel etc. It seems to only work on my treadmill, must have agoraphobia.
Bike It: Thanks for the Parkrun for toddlers info, deffo going to give it a go with my little one
Ant: Nice 9'er.
BB: Speedy 10/reps at bonkers o'clock.
Well done on the Jantastic stuff all.
Got a touch of the sore heel today (PF?) always seem to get it after a long run, I think it may be down to having not much running base and coming from months of cycling meaning all my leg muscles/tendons/joiny bits are a bit mucked up.
PMJ: Great 18 and a good pace, I run quite a few of the same routes at lunchtimes, there is always lots of runners to 'race'!
My 21 miler route is not exactly a sightseeing tour, but it's generally free of people and its just about getting it done with the least time out from the family, i.e. I can't really travel to somewhere nice to run!
First off, thanks for welcome back messages, surprised I was remembered to be fair! also, forgotten how quickly this thread moves!
Gul: Nice Long ‘un Martin: Excellent 20 at a good pace. Bike It: I want to get my little boy into running at a parkun, but was worried he was too young, was he OK with it? He enjoy it? Speedy: Great XC and 20, I share the same issue, long runs no probs, but nothing doing at a faster pace. Ant: Great work on the Long, not so slow run, I chickened out of doing any MP when it appeared in P&D last week! PMJ: Good XC to end a good mileage week Birch: Nice 20. Lorenzo: Hilly 18.5 sounds like fun!, top work Rich26: New PB is always a bonus, next step, sub 40..
I did 54 for the week (over 5 runs) as missed a session due to Lurgy. Including a 21 Mile LSR at 7:59 M/M, last time I went that long was VLM 2011!. Felt OK and my legs are fine today.
So, it’s a long time since I have been on here, I see a lot of familiar faces are still around (Ant, Minni, Poacher, Lorenzo, MsE, Jools, BOTF, PMJ et al) so hello!
Last time I was on here, was for the months of training before VLM 2011, with everybody’s help, and following P&D mostly, I just managed to dip under the tape for a 3:14:57, been ticking over since, approx. 10 miles a week, but mainly cycling to keep me fit.
Now back on it, been running approx. 40 miles a week for a few months and tentatively started P&D 55-70 plan in December and going for Brighton Mara, for sub 3/as close as I can get.
Sorry this post is all me, me, me, but will be all over the forum from now on!
