CW 66 miles "only"... i can only dream of those weekly amounts!! Good luck with the relay.
Padams, sounds like you got through relatively well then, as long as you can shake this lurgy fairly soonish. Were you skiing alp d'uez then? That's where i first strapped on a snowboard and got hooked back in 1997. Now days i prefer La Grave not too far away from there though.
TR - so did that mean u sacked off the long run this weekend? Sounds a good session on the turbo anyway.
so i got up at the ridiculous time of 3:30am to watch us get trounced in the cricket. Actually 4:30 now the clocks have gone forward. went out the door when we were 3 down at 5am (6am of course, but the amount of people round showed not many had realised it was daylight savings either!) and probably missed our only reasonable spell of the match. oh well, we were the underdogs for a reason. doesn't help when you actually bowl someone and the bails don't fall off either, guess the oozes glued them on - they were just too good though in reality.
i was running laps of regents park again so as to not get too far from home in case i broke down. ended up doing a progressive long run (longest run since Frankfurt marathon). First 5 at 7m48s, next 5 7m36s (just sped up as i woke up i think), next 5 7m13s and then a conscious effort (after a CRAB alfresco where unfortunately the park toilet i thought i could just make in time was locked which resulted in the loss of another Ron Hill hat to the poo gods) to try and run hard for next 5 at 6m33s. Another 2.25 miles to finish for total 22.25 miles in 2 hours 43. Bit tired now, but that's probably because of the 5 hours sleep more than the run.
Nice running DanA.
That's a pity JH1 hope u get it sorted ok just after VLM then.
CC2 sorry u are still suffering hope it comes right soon.
RyanS that sucks u sounded in super form/fitness. Will come back stronger hopefully.
TR that's often what happens to me when I start stretching and self massaging things!!
cripes Lev that is some comeback run. hard to pick the order amongst u SL and Padams but one of you please get so beers in lets see what times go down on the "list". SL - huge training. good luck with the knee niggle AL_P.
nice one MtR that is some streak you must be getting into shape!
Like Lev i am dreading my attempt at a long run, however unlike Lev i certainly don't expect it to be so confidence boosting and it will take a lot longer (although i won't make 23 either)! plan is to get out early morning tomorrow and miss the mid innings break in the cricket. forecast looks like rain and 40km/hr winds! oh well its just another training run. Hope it gives me a boost for next month. i need it as i've lost all motivation with the various niggles and my back pain is really getting me a bit down (as you lose sleep/can't get back to sleep once awake). I've put 2 and 2 together now, and actually think the fall i had when i smashed my teeth up is probably what has done something to the bulging disc and brought this all back. at least my sore hammy post the trail half seems to have come right - not surprising given i have only managed to run about 14 miles all week!
