morning all, Ale - hope your daughter enjoys it, I'm sure it will be a lovely experience. LmH, postie - ah the south coastal hills, have to say enjoy running those when I get the chance. NZC - mine was 10 miles Took yesterday as a rest day, sore hammys, busy day at work and committee meeting in the evening that finished at 10 conspired to tell me what I ought to know. Today - ran to work from the station, hardly a postie commute, merely a 2k leg stretcher. Will do some kind of speedwork lunchtime as can't get to the club tonight: both girls have schools athletics fixtures. Why - back in the saddle last rest - yesterday last hard - Sunday
morning all, Birks - hope eldest gets on OK! RFJ, OH - nice racing , well done! Did someone mention cake? There is a whole keylime pie sitting uneaten in our fridge, plus half a mississippi mud pie. What diet? what - maybe 4 easy, maybe rest why - sore hammys last rest - 3 weeks ago last hard - yesterday Good news from yesterday was that youngest was 4th overall in the 4km ladies race (out of 233), first in age group in 18.02, my time officially 70.36. lyric - no idea
afternoon everyone... LmH what is this wet stuff of whch you speak? Despite forecasts for rain, it has been a lovely weekend here so far..yesterday sun run followed by a day of gardening, today did the local 10miler, more as tempo than anything else. If anything a bit too hot, but nice enough to stretch out on teh grass afterwards and raid the bbq... Set off perhaps a wee bit too quick (first two sub 7s) but slowed a little, but averaged about 7.03 for the last 3. I think it was 70.42 overall. Not too bad, but equally nothing to write home about. Job done, box ticked I think is the way to describe it!! last rest - 22 days although tomorrow is a contender.. last hard - miles 4 5 and 6 this morning
Morning all, Like Blisters we have the yellow thing, lovely morning out there, just back in from 9 very easy: fields, canal, woods and a lovely array of animals: lambs, swans and cygnets by the canal - gave them a wide berth...couple of deer and rewarded with the sounds and, with patience, sight of a woodpecker. The cuckoo remained disguised. Why - ease back day, have a 10 mile race tomorrow, but treating it as a tempo/training run. Marathon 6 weeks today. Last Rest - 3 weeks Last hard - last week sometime.
LmH - enjoy the weekend away Ale - good luck with the training, hope its not as bad as it sounds Paddy - sounds a decent days training, hope you don't have to wait too long for Blisters to catch you up
