Sounds like a nice relaxed run Teknik and MG1 - good pace!
AGF you've certainly been building the miles quietly there, well done!
NP great that the fitness is coming back so quickly - never doubted it would! Date loaf baked tonight.
NN I hope to get much the same run as you tomorrow, a nice relaxed 14.
Jason great mileage. Diet interesting but I do love my carbs!
Outdoors all day today in beautiful sun! Firm sponsoring a British Eventing event so went along to watch/present prizes etc. Great event but on my feet all day and pretty tired so a 10 mile turbo just done. Happy enough with that as my right ankle was really niggly last night. Looking forward to the run tomorrow but a bit of rain forecast.
NN I had to trim the ends off the loaves! When I make them for myself I cut back the fat & no sugar but these are yummy. Also made a choc cake last night for them. Sounds like a nice relaxed run that you had.
Blimey OH, I think I'd be resting after a week of racing! Well done for getting out at all.
Are you still on your no/low carb diet jason?
MG1 well done for getting out in the bad weather. Much the same here.
NP - how is the hip now?
Stewart nice run last night. My sister is near Elgin so just pops in when work takes her through here. Are you heading to the Lewis half tomorrow?
8.32 miles for me last night (brings the week's miles so far to a round number! ) a fairly breezy, cold run. Back to the woolly hat and long sleeves etc. Got an all day work thing tomorrow but will get a short run first thing then plan the longer run on Sunday so should still be building the miles.
NN good that the iron is working. You were running so well and it will come back. Both you and Teknik trained harder than most on here and that's what is so tiring rather than the day itself so you both deserve a nice recovery period.
Stuart and jason nice intervals!
MG1 sounds like you had a tough core session.
A good long midweek run Stewart.
A busy evening last night! Put 3 banana breads (for a charity thing) in the oven then onto the treadmill as wanted to be around when my sister arrived. Only got 5k done as she was early then had to wait for the blasted baking to finish before heading out with her for 30 minutes. She managed non-stop (last time we stopped a lot!) and also average pace 11:59mm (previously 12:27mm). So mileage not what it should have been but plan to get out tonight. Have an all day work event on Saturday so have to plan the miles around that.
IJ I'd be hypothermic without the many layers in winter, I think I have a very efficient cooling system! We do have a few up here too that are in shorts year round and club vest with no t-shirt in snowy races!
Stewart yes, you go from loose gravel and exposed stones (after the rain we've had!) to mud on the off road last bit, it is pretty churned up and I don't have anything but road shoes. First time I've done that, a great run so one for the weekend too. Well done on your run.
NP I think we may have had summer one day when you were away! It is back to really windy and cold here with spells of heavy rain. Forecast back to sub zero tomorrow. Sounds like a good plan, I'll wait a few weeks before adding doubles.
My sister is visiting for a coffee on her way home from a seminar tonight so told her to take her run gear (she missed last night's run - tut!) but if I have time I hope to get a few miles in first.
