Well done Brer! great start to your marathon plan!!
I set myself a hill challenge yesterday. I've set a 10k route that takes in a 1.5mile v steep hill (first gear in a car job) up and back down it. For my first attempt I did it in 61mins, and only had to stop once briefly to walk. It should be good training, and I can extend the route easily. Look out SNOD, I'm starting to take you seriously!
Malcs. 21.04 is great time, but I know how frustrating those 5 secs are!! 5k just doesnt give you chance to make mistakes.
Sarah, brilliant race yet again! And what lovely pics on facebook, it really was the middle of nowhere. Good luck with the move.
Clive, that race report sounds like pergatory to me! I can think of nothing worse! I am in awe of anyone who completes such an ordeal. Well done!
I've not bought hobbit shoes, they are really just minimalist trainers. I'm only going to use them for short runs I think, see how I get on. I've done a bit of reading around and have done the exercises. It says that if you cant deep squat barefoot without heels lifting you shouldnt run in minimalist shoes. They are so light, and when I wore them yesterday they were v comfy - perfect for hot weather!! lol
I set myself a hill challenge yesterday, There is a v steep 1.5 mile long hill near me(first gear job in a car) I've set a 10k route including going up and down it. My first attempt took me 61mins and I had to walk briefly once. I reckon this will be good SNOD training.
Malcs- can't believe you were cold last sunday! castle relay runners were suffering from heat exhaustion!! you were still delusional after gig!!
oooh hobnobbing with the famous now are we!
bought myself some really light 'barefoot' running shoes today, (mega sale bargain) I thought they may be good on holiday, but aim to try them out cautiously in next week or so. Anybody have any experience/tips to share?
Ady..I set bringing my 5k down as my spring goal.. I crashed n burned I don't want to knock my confidence again, so my new plan is attacking some hills and setting myself personal challenges to get up them! That should be a good starting point for SNOD. Glad you're starting to feel better.
