Am like you Nurse and woefully under prepared for LN! Managed 16 miles on Sunday but only because I did a run/walk and finished spot on my planned goal time.
That said had a painful knee yesterday, probably a combination of the 16 miles then running quickly (for me) doing downhill reps onTuesday. On the treadmill tonight, groin and knee all strapped up and managed a slow,flat 5k with an AHR of just 62% and felt ok.
No matter how much I massage the figures I don't think I can beat 2nd September and 2014 in 2014 so Matty, it's over to you to perform
Am suffering (a little) from yesterdays 16 miler and have sore knees and hips today
1915k run so just 99 to go, 99bc was of course a year of the pre-Julian Roman calendar. At the time it was known as the Year of the Consulship of Antonius and Albinus (or, less frequently, year 655 Ab urbe condita). The denomination 99 BC for this year has been used since the early medieval period, when the Anno Domini calendar era became the prevalent method in Europe for naming years.
Scott, well done on the 18 (or 17, or whatever miles), looks like everybody is coming along nicely in these last few weeks Sounds like a great run sheesh
Made it out for my longest run this campaign and only my second run to hit 16 miles (last time was 21st June!!). Groin was well strapped up (makes for awkward impromptu pit stops) and had a brief stop to watch a pair of Sea Eagles being bothered by 3 hawks!
Goal today was sub 73% AHR and 11:15 min/miles and made enough time up at 4 miles to start walk breaks and it helped me complete the distance relatively pain free Walking most of the last 1/2 mile got me to 11:15mm & 72% AHR.
1500 feet of incline and the good news is it was out-n-back so got a good 1500 foot of decline in as well so that was nice I might try this run/walk malarkey 29th September!
