I did clowne half marathon today. Had a funny calf so I wasnt going to run, but there was a physio opposite the start with his door open so I asked his advice. Apparently my calf was ok, just alittle over used. Not sprained. He taped it up and said I would be fine to run. Therefore I had a plod round and finished my slowest ever half in just under 1:53. The hills were much more pleasant at this pace!
calf was fine and actually feels better than this time yesterday...so the physio was right.
Hi Nayan it looks like my aims are similar to yours at the moment...im currently training to get a sub 40 10k...it's killing me. After doing lots of slow miles for my ultra all these quick miles are certainly testing... But fun.
wow, your training weekend sounded fantastic Mc Hilly , who did you book it through? I would be quite interested in doing something like that.
Thankyou Malcs for the sympathy, Mr A's eye is now ok and he's back at work. He's also stopped panicking about himself going blind (he's a bit of a hypercondriac). Would be lovely to go sub 3 hours for a marathon...but baby steps first...sub 3:15. Ive managed to get a championship place for VLM so if I don't make paris I have a nice backup plan.
So sorry to hear about your Aunti and your work reikirabbit. It's a dreadful thing to happen after all your hard work. Hope you have a safe journal And it goes ok.
Stan you have my sympathy... My aim of a sub 20 yesterday got me 20.0 exactly (my watch said 19:57 so it's a little frustrating as I started it on the 2 part of 3..2..1 and i managed to run 3.12 miles) but never mind...means my aim to run rothervally parkrun next time will be a sub 20.0....again Rather than sub 19:30 (which sounds impossible)
Thankyou Minni for your vote...I still need to enter and convince them that they need to mentor someone to sub 3:15!
You sound so passionate about Snowdonia McHilly...im going to try and enter it at the end of December, thankyou. I was thinking about entering a 10k at the beginning of feb, Dewsbury 10k..it apparently flat and fast. “Run the highlands” sounds amazing. I cant wait to hear all about it.
Sorry to hear about your thyroid Chick. Hope its just a blip and it settles back down to normal soon.
The 400’s hurt at the time RR but felt great afterwards. This week I did mile reps instead...they hurt more. Managed 4 good ones but by the 5th one I was suffering. I had planned to race a 10k this morning but my husband developed a corneal ulcer so instead I spent the morning at the opticians and then eye hospital so missed my race. Was gutted as it was a nice course through dalby forest. When I got back from the hospital ( 4pm) I decided to do the mile reps...but I was very under fuelled having only ate an apple since 8am and paid a little towards the end as a result. Congrats on your recent times and your 400’s, and good luck with all those races...looks like you have 2015 mapped out quite well already. Sorry to hear about your job, do you know what projects you will be doing instead?
Haha..im not sure i could get a sub 3 malcs..only in my dreams.
Glad to hear the foots much better Stan. Well done on the fantastic parkrun time, i would be delighted with that time post injury
Hi Mr P, loads of people I know are doing Manchester...it does sound like a fantastic event.
Well done at Parkrun Hans
Angela I would love to do the Disney marathon also so if you need a friend to go with you
Thankyou RR. Glad you enjoyed the carvery. What races are you planning on doing? Sounds like you had a tough run to work, 9.5 miles is a long way to run before work, well done.
Hi McHilly, good luck in the comp. im going to apply this weekend, when ive got time to sit down and write my application and find a photo that will actually upload! I can remember watching snowdon marathon last year and really fancied it. It looks tough but so scenic. How did you get on in it this year?
Im so relieved that you've managed to survive the man flu Malcs...phew. Well I'm now into week two of your 10k training plan and ouch...there's so many faster paced training runs....there goes my nice steady ultra marathon training plods that I was doing...think my body went into shock yesterday. Managed the 12x400m in sub 90's yesterday....just but it was almost vomit inducing!
Brass monkey entries open at 6am on the 8th November if anyone's interested
