Again, crazy number of posts. Very quick shorter distances. Good luck Menn.
I run on a treadmill when I have no other choice. Which is normally all of July and August, due to work. Once you realise you have no other choice it is an easy decision.
Easy decisions, work got in the way again today. "Guests" arriving tomorrow, so only just finished work. On duty so can't leave, hence no running tonight or over the weekend (unless on the treadmill). I am hoping a long rest of approx a week will help with glute as it is fine until I run.
Moof The consultant appointment is for the shoulder. I was correct, I contacted to confirm date and since yesterday the consultant has decided to cancel all appointments and go abroad. New date pencilled in (subject to change). Fortunately I hadn't booked flights.
Both my wife and daughter have no interest in my running whatsoever. I believe, by taking to them all the time about running and changing any topic to a story about my running, will change their lack of interest.
I however do not agree with starting quickly and holding on
5 miles recovery tonight and both calfs felt slightly tight.
Lots of ungoing frustration, but finally managed to book an appointment with consultant for first week in June. I am quite confident I will be required to re arrange this.
My first thoughts would be the Monday recovery run being run to quickly, as you state, will then have an effect on the rest of your weekly runs. Running recovery runs slow enough to recover is very important (also something I don't do). If I remember Minni has a great article about the importance of recovery runs.
It is difficult when life gets in the way. Is there any way of adding a run into your commute? Or do you have enough time to make Friday your LSR day?
DS2 I went from 3:24 to 3:08 on the back of P&D upto 55 miles (5 days a week schedule). Just recover/base build prior to starting the 18 week schedule would be my advice.
