I am not really ramping up my training just trying to be consistent after developing a few aches and pains. I like to run 40 - 50k a week with one run over 10k.
Busbar, That is a strong run from you well done.
John, Another consistent park run, they certainly are keeping you sharp.
Columba, How are the knees doing? As you know I have the same problem. Not running doesn't seem to help. I have done a lot of strengthening exercises and I think that allows me to run more or less pain free, certainly no sharp pains. I have to be carefully with doing too much intense stuff but just running easy seems manageable.
7.1 miles today to bring my week to 42k so good enough.
John, Good luck with the 10 miler, you don't need me to remind you it is all about getting the pace right over the first mile.
More snow today so forced on to the treadmill again. I have three different types of treadmill to chose from and the gym is a lively place so lots to watch so it makes it bearable. 5k at 0.5% grad with a gently increasing pace and best of all no moaning from my ankle at all.
Off to Toronto for the weekend, birthday celebrations with two daughters and their boyfriends, at least I don't have to race them this time. Lots of great restaurants and markets to wander so we will have fun. With all this snow about we decided on first class train tickets, a bit of pampering is always good. The train station is within walking distance of where we are staying.
Graham, Nice going, glad to see you shaken off all of your niggles. I watched the spurs game yesterday and was disappointed in their lack of desire to play to their potential. Admittedly there were a lot of youngsters in the side but the manager needs to keep them focused on getting the job done. He put on the more experienced players too late in the game to have any hope of coming back. These players are pros and the occasional 2 games a week is not a lot to ask.
A bit nippier today, -4c, but the snow had been cleared off the roads so outside I went. An easy 5.5k for me. I need to get my legs back to normal before I re-introduce more intense stuff. Very jealous of all the intervals going on.
WD60, Still an impressive number of consecutive days which is tough to do at our age where we seem to need more recovery time.
Me and my big mouth. As soon as I came indoors the snow intensified and doubled the accumulation before I got to the gym, so treadmill it was. I managed a comfortable 4 miles with good behavior from my ankle so happy with that.
I am glad I put my winter tyres on last week as the roads were snow covered.
