Well hopefully my mileage should be back up to decent levels this week (although not as high as Lit) so hopefully things will start shifting again. Otherwise I'm going to have to fire up My Fitness Pal. I have lost 4.5 stone since July though
Really enjoyed today's intervals. They were a bit hard at the time but the sun was out and I did them at the park and I'm now filled with a sense of enormous well being. 5 x 800m done at 6:34 pace. With a 3mile run there and a bit more back for a total of 10.3 miles. Probs about 10 secs per mile too fast but who knows, maybe that is my 5k pace now. Felt ok anyway. Legs are happy enough. Good start seeing as not done any since before getting pregnant. I was sort of apprehensive about them before hand. But nowhere near as apprehensive as I have been about the long LT or MP sessions.
Happy Birthday, Madbee. Hope you're doing something fun as well as running a massive great big long run.
That's good, DT. But Two Castles knocked a massive 7 quid off for affiliation. Pity then that the bastards limited the number of club places, despite it being a key fixture in the Warwickshire Road Race League. Had to enter as a normo at massive premium. I'm a dick. . They sold out in three hours though!
Great LT session, Mace. I was very glad to do mine in a race.
I will give you some kudos, Mr V.
On the weight front are people actively trying to get down to a racing weight or is it naturally coming off? My weight loss stalled when I was nursing my niggles and I think losing another 10lbs will put me at pre-preg weight and probs help me more in the marathon than any actual training now. I'm stopping midweek wine and trying to keep an eye on sugar intake apart from before/immediately after runs. But I'm a flipping gannet and breastfeeding (double gannet) so it's hard.
Right, just off to the park to do my first interval session since 2013.
Haha Skinny. I was doing exactly the same calculation yesterday following MY midweek 12 (pushing a buggy). I'm also excluding the taper on the grounds that it'll be a rest. Only 4.5 more weeks!
Bob, man up. Only a bit of wind!
Mr V - you don't seem to be having much luck. Maybe a change of weather and impending spring will help. Apparently the temps will be in the mid-teens on Saturday. Positively balmy. I might even dust my shorts off.
