Hey all, just checking in... looks like this thread has pretty much died? I'm trying to get my legs used to running 2x per day, every day, with the aim of running to and from work (about 2 miles) when I'm up to it. Right now, 2 minutes 2x per day with really good form, and I'm stopping as soon as I'm too tired (or my calves hurt too much) to keep the form. Increasing distance by about 20 seconds per day until I get there! Hope you're all keeping well and looking forward to the holidays! BTW I managed to keep off the ~4% bodyweight I lost but haven't lost any more - down from about 90 kilos to a steady 85-86
Hey guys, I had a bit of a 'mare at the cross country two weeks ago and really tweaked my bad leg again. Haven't run since apart from an aborted attempt last week. I'm still registered for the Stroud half next week and planning to toe the line but I'll be a bit undertrained - just planning to see how I feel on the day and prepared to pull out if my leg isn't ready. OTOH if I feel good, another attempt at sub 2hrs is definitely the plan. I don't think I mentioned on here that I ran 2:02:20 in training just before that XC race
Hey guys - very quiet here lately! We had a mile race last night, it was brilliant fun running in the dark, on a runway with the landing lights all on. A bit of a headwind, but I set a new PB for the mile - 6:54.4! I was aiming for sub-7 minutes, so v happy with that
Hey guys and gals, just checking in - I ran my first ever triathlon this morning. Oh boy, are triathlons tough?! Respect to everyone who competes in them..they really are the next level. V glad I did it, feel on top of the world now which is amazing considering I felt terrible since thursday and very nearly pulled out. Probably only a gentle jog mid-week, cos Sunday I'm running my first ever half marathon!
