Nice to see Leslie's patience paying off and building up the mileage well.
242 miles for January, which was a bit over target, but all well so far. February will be more restrained with 200 mile target.
My wife is away this weekend with Netball so I'm planning a nice long Saturday night run on the treadmill altering the gradient to that of the first part of the Comrades course. Some people know how to live
I used the Saucony Triumph for a while Lorenzo. They were good and comfortable, but I got injured in them as a result of excessive mileage (for me) and then I returned to ASICS. Probably little or nothing to do with the shoe - more about my individual weight and mileage tolerance.
32km today - legs were tired but I went well helped by cooler conditions at 5:19 per km ( roughly 8:35 per mile). Brings me up to 72 miles for the week, the highest since April 2013. Back to 50 mpw next week.
Hilly - I've got a low-key marathon on 13 Feb in Klerksdorp (I live in SA now). After that the big event is Comrades at the end of May.
Nice Reps Gul. Enjoy yours too GD - not sure I like the sound of so short a rest myself but I guess you can just walk very slowly.
I like the sound of your 10th Feb run Badbark - no pressure and you have all day to run just as far as you like. Perfect.
Good to see the comeback is progressing smoothly Leslie - BTW there is nothing wrong with being 82kg.
18km/11m half on dirt roads/ half on tar road this lunchtime. It was relatively fast and I felt good, but had to walk in the last 2km due to the heat. That puts me on 43 miles for the week so far and its only Thursday, which feels quite strange as I've been running around 50 mpw for the last 10ish weeks. This has the potential to be the biggest week since May 2013 if all goes smoothly.
Happy Running Anniversary Birch. Your's are very impressive and inspirational statistics and results. That's a lot of miles and great experiences along the way.
Hi Hilly - sound's like you have a good running history and are doing some significant volumes at the moment
I've also recently started doubles KR - I started to commute 2 days a week by running its 6.5km/4.3m each way and some time gets a bit extended. I found it to be an easy way to get a few miles in by substituting it for my regular cycle commute - no-one really notices. Thankfully I've a shower at work opposite my office door.
I found a new way to make smoothies - just take some watermelon and put it in a plastic container and then put that in your run commuting bag. Run to work then then when you arrive you bag is full of pulverised melon everywhere. Yes it happend to me yesterday - thankfully my bag is quite waterproof so nothing critical damaged.
