MTR.. nothing like a plan to get you motivated again, good 14m in the bank - is this a P&D stylie 24 week jobbie? My Frankfurt plan is 18 weeks from the end of June.
Charlie.. overtraining in one leg?? One of the symptoms of overtraining is 'loss of libido', in which case just make sure you get the correct leg over. FWIW I think it is true to say once we are into our early/middle forties and beyond, 'none of us is as invincible as we used to be'. I reckon your body is just protesting at a bit at of overload with a lack of recovery.
Al P.. shame about the shin, I was hoping for your sake that the post VLM rest might have cleared it up. Any thoughts on taking a break to let it heal?
Dids.. good win in a smoking jacket & always good to reel in the whippersnappers.
GW.. very nippy 5k there. Had to laugh when I saw you posting your times on the sub 5 hour thread though - you'll have them thinking they can run twice as fast as they currently can with a bit of training.
Nice 5k's from Padams & CC2 as well. Speedy cycling from Padams too.
DanA.. are you doing the UTMB again?
RS.. sorry to hear about your nerve problems, I spent 3 years on & off with them. Trouble is they are not like muscle injuries, they can sometimes disappear quickly or hang around for months!
Nice 21m HR.
Brian M.. thanks for the heads up on Poznan, might consider the marathon next year. I've been to both Krakow & Gdansk and loved them both. Food/Drink etc seems to be nearly half the price of a euro destination.
Below par Parkrun for me yesterday - 20:38, legs just didn't want to know. Scant reward for turning up in the pouring rain!
12.3m today, it must be warm again judging by the number of cyclists out & about!
Charlie.. nearest I get to 'Nervous Nerys' is on my running commute home. The route takes me past one of the roughest pubs in York & environs ('a pint of bitter and a gumshield please'). I am always ready to duck or run away when I pass should fighting/bottle throwing be taking place.
TT.. great session of varied pace there. Good session from Jonny too.
Great bike speed Padams.
Dids.. hope you're not too badly broken.
Aforementioned running commute home tonight, 13m in the bank. Cold, raining & breezy as I set off so I had 2 layers plus a gilet on plus gloves! The weather improved drastically as I progressed so layers were shed as the last 6 miles saw blue sky and a pleasant summer evening.
Hi Calum. No need to register at the start. Just run with the barcode attached to you or in a pocket somehow. When you finish you are given a disc with your position on, this is matched and scanned with your barcode so that you appear in the results. I put my barcode in a credit card sized plastic sleeve so it doesn't get too soggy. I normally run the York Parkrun and it is a very simple system once you are used to it.
TB.. 15 minutes of fame! Hope you verbally slapped a few wrists.
CD.. I like stories like that, nice one! Three youths once started chasing me on their £50 Halford specials when I was cycling home from work one night. As I was astride my posh titanium racer I felt like giving them a head start!
AR.. funnily enough I'm a bike marshall tonight. Our club have a new 10k course (the old one was deemed unsafe). I have run around it about 8 times when we were trying to get the measurement right so at least I know where I'm going! My job is to make sure all the marshalls are in the right place and keep an eye on big gaps near the pointy end where runners are more likely to go astray. Looks like a wet one though.
Not much prospect of a run tonight so got out early doors for 5m.
