Some good training going on, especially the tempo runs. Good to see Gobi popping in too!
6M for me this morning. Wouldn't usually bother posting that but there was basically no pain from either calf and can't feel any soreness now, so good news. Will stick to easy running for the next week or so though - should be easy given I have two more work dos today and tomorrow.
Only other interesting training this week was a good turbo on Monday evening - classic 2x20mins session, but set new power PBs (about 325W on both efforts). I was actually planning to do 4x10mins, but got to 10mins and thought I'd rather carry on and only do two efforts!
We're heading to the north coast of Devon for a few days from Sunday, really looking forward to it. Looks like there should be some lovely runs from there, just need to not get injured!
Jools - nice run at the Counties. I was surprised they were taking place in December too - ours are always first Sunday of the year.
ThR - good drinking and running sessions!
Other good training by SJ and TB.
Some highs and lows this weekend for me.
Triathlon club do on Friday evening was good - nice to catch up with everyone and not too drunken.
Saturday morning I ran to pick the car up. I met up with the club at 8am who I thought were going in the right direction for the car. An hour later and I wasn't really much closer than when I started, so branched off. By the time I got to the car I'd been running for about 95 minutes, which was obviously much longer than I'd planned, but the calves felt fine until the last couple of miles when one of them (the one that was originally bad about 3 weeks ago, not the one that was bad last week!) starting aching a bit, but nothing major. Lovely morning for running too, and the calf didn't feel too bad the next day.
Sunday morning I was up early and the dog's breathing was much faster than normal (he has had two major lung surgeries in the last 14 months). Took him to the vets and made the decision that nothing else could be done and best to let him go before it got really uncomfortable for him. He was an awesome dog and we miss him, but he had a great life thanks to my wife rescuing him from the dog baiting rings in Philadelphia 11 years ago.
So no training yesterday and not really feeling like doing much today either (particularly my client meeting in 2 hours).
Blimey TT, that's good pace considering you've not done much fast stuff recently!
Interesting to see everyone posting their 2015 tergats. My favourite so far is Tmoth's 145M in 24 hours!
Not very exciting, but good news for me as I did 4M nice and easy with almost no complaints from the calf. Could just about feel it in the last mile but no pain this morning. Did some strengthening stuff this morning, then a work do this evening so no more training today, will try another jog tomorrow.
