Jools - very sad news. Speedy - very sensible. Obviously you wouldn't be mad enough to try reading while walking (see my avatar!) GD - good hill session. I presume it's just new to you, not one that was formed recently?! Lorenzo - was that just a double or was it more? Some core strength type exercises for me this morning. Good grief, I am weak and feeble! Followed by 4 slow miles to the supermarket and back.
Lorenzo - yes, that's the field! However the snow didn't settle on Friday... Sorry to hear you had a tough day for the Ultra, but well done on going sub 7. Leslie - good track work and great fast finish long run. Speedy - I've never tried running while listening to an audio book; I guess it would be fine on a treadmill. Do you listen while running outside too? Congrats on the XC bling and good 20 miler. GD - well done on the 20 miler in the freezing cold. MsE - oh no!!! Hope the ankle heals quickly. SEdan - good base building. Are you looking to start slowly ramping things up a bit now, then? Birch - 18 wet miles is good going. Jools - nice mileage, there. Did you find out why you were diverted? PMJ - great effort in the XC. OO - congrats - that's excellent racing in York! SBD - if you can keep those niggles as bay, that's looking promising. Poacher - indoor training - argh! Well, no running this weekend again. I'm not waking up particularly early and I'm sure that's a good sign that I need a rest! I have a rough plan in mind to keep out of the cold and damp and do some strength/core work this week and maybe just an odd few easy runs if possible.
MsE - hope the DOMS have eased now. Leslie - churning out some stonking runs at the moment! PMJ - good benchmark. GM - thanks. It's not just me then! Hope you can get back to some more consistent running soon. GD - well done getting out in those conditions! Lorenzo - take care in the snow! I think I was a bit optimistic going straight into 2 interval sessions this week. Maybe just some short, easy runs for a week or two for me. PMJ - good luck with the XC tomorrow. Unplanned rest day here. I overslept! Probably should have planned a rest day anyway as my throat is getting worse again. Snow started this morning and is settling now. I feel a field coming on...
RichN - your first mara experience sounds a bit like mine! Sounds like you have a plan. MsE - one day, I will get down to some strength/core work... Abbers - solid steady run and 8 miler. Speedy - probably a sensible move! Intervals again this morning and was a bit short of time, so just 6 miles with 7x800m off 400m recoveries. Struggled a bit and felt like the lurgy was coming back! Averaged 3:10 for the reps.
Leslie - that's a very fast block of 3 miles there! Birch - good 9 miler. Poacher - good advice - I'll learn to heed it one day. RichN - welcome. Sub 3:15 is a possibility. GM - nice pacing there. Shame about the stomach cramps, but good result. Lorenzo - couple of nice sessions. Glad you managed to find a train! 6 mile recovery run this morning.
