Badbark - some astonishing running there. Very impressive 23 miler with parkrun. Abbers - hi. Good to hear you're okay. Birch - makes perfect sense now. Hope you're 100% recovered. Leslie - Oh dear. Let's hope the physio will do the necessary. As for my gate with the useless handle, I think it's a small deterrent against less agile burglars. Or at least that's my excuse. VTr - sounds like you are acclimatising well. 6 plodtastic miles d&d @ 9:06 m/m HR 122.
SJ - pleased to hear it. GD - that's a very speedy session. OO - not an enviable position. Bike It - progress continues. VTr - hope you can find some suitable races. This morning's session was lots of laps of the field with some strides, but when I got there I discovered the GPS watch's memory was full and I couldn't figure out how to clear it. So popped home (0.19 miles away), to get the manual and had to climb over our garden gate as the handle wasn't working. Anyway, I got it sorted in the end and did 7 miles easy warm-up (8:50 m/m and avg HR 140) and 5 miles with 10 x 100m strides @ 8:06 m/m HR 154.
KR - that's a very impressive total mileage for 7 days! Whereabouts in Norfolk did you stay? VTr - very rarely have to contend with those sorts of conditions - good effort. Bike It - that's a sobering thought. isn't it? GM - nice return to hilly running. SJ - ouch - hope the hip is okay today. 14 miles d&d at the usual time (didn't oversleep today), but more decorating and no time to post earlier on. A nice gentle easy run averaging 8:23 m/m. Cheap HRM went haywire again, I presume, and gave a max reading of 225!
GM - good holiday racing - welcome back. Will you be training in your race day kit? Leslie - hope tomorrow's appointment with the specialist is positive. OO - good place for a hill session, Sheffield. Solid parkrun. GD - all the best for the cycling event next weekend. You can concentrate on the running afterwards! Birch - I'm sure those legs will be OK. I find I get all sorts of aches and pains when I stop running for a couple of days! And still another 20 miler bagged. Bike It - how much is 100 rand note worth? TH3 - nice late long run. Lorenzo - sounds like hideous conditions for running! Speedy - bronze medal after 34 miles in three days is impressive. Jools - well done fitting all those miles in during a busy weekend. VTR - cracking mileage and pleased to hear the foot is much better. MsE - nice tally at the Thunder Run but disappointing toe-nail count No sign of that hamstring niggle since Friday so sounds like it was nothing to worry about.
Apologies for the flying visit this morning. Overslept by nearly an hour and want to get some decorating done too before I go to work! Hopefully catch up during coffee break. 8 miles tempo run d&d this morning @ 7:04 m/m. HR avg 166 and max 205 - more believable this time as it was a hard effort towards the end.
