bigeater - If you're looking for an alternative to Alloa half, the Balloch to Clydebank half is on the 8th March. It's not the busiest but it's fast and flat. Have you been keeping the marcothon going too? Very impressive!
Gary - great running by the young fella. The standard in the junior races is frightening at the cross country events! I'm just glad I don't have to race them!
Rich/Stan/John/Ed - good luck with your long runs today.
Alibali - did you get out yesterday? The paths/pavements were treacherous so I just ended doing a grass run.
Gary/Stan - Good parkrunning!
Zonda/Bigeater - Good long runs!
Runningtap - Solid training week, and yeah an easy week every so often won't do any harm.
Week 4 complete - 73 miles of running (8hrs45mins), including a 5 mile tempo run (5:48's), a very icy 12 mile midweek run (6:59's) and an enjoyable 19 mile long run today (6:57's). 2hr30mins on turbo trainer, still too icy to get the bike out on the roads, hopefully next week! Treated myself to my first sports massage of the programme too, generally not too bad but was nearly crying when he had his elbow in my piriformis!! Ouch!
Into totally unchartered territory in terms of mileage at the moment. Finding it tough but in a good way. I'm permanently tired, so much so i found myself going to be at 10pm on Saturday night. Told the wife i was going to read my book (Cavendish autobiography, very good so far!), but she checked in 10 minutes later and found me out for the count! I also feel like i'm in a permanent taper as i'm paranoid about every twitch, every sniffle, every ache etc..
Just Coop – I’ve just looked back through the posts and saw you’re 10k PB. Congratulations! A 2 minute PB in a 10k is a fantastic achievement!
Is that the first PB of the thread?? I feel like there should be a fan fare or something Hopefully it’s the first of many!
Bigeater – Well done on getting the first 20 miler done! The first is usually the hardest (mentally at least)! I also agree on the shorts front – you’re off your head!! I’ve been in leggings since November.
AM – Sorry to hear your race got cancelled. If I remember correctly you have a few planned anyway so not too bad I guess. Oh and Happy Birthday!!
Snafflepants – you frightened me there! It’s week 4 (unless you’re doing a 17 week plan!)
EdO – I saw your 20 miler on Strava, think you already got kudos from me but hey, have some more! Well done!
