TR- Sounds like some decent miles and efforts despite the heat.
Mr v, good choice of a week off.
I have 3 x 15 at threshold tonight. Last week it was a similar heat without being sunny and with hindsight it really wiped me out. Therefore i think I am going to have to take tonight to the treadmill. It is a means to an end as if i attempt it outdoors i will probably fail to hold the paces and tire myself too much.
90 mins easy went well enough tuesday, though without a drink with me it got a bit hot towards the end. Pleaseant cycle to work yesterday. Cycled home in my highest ever ave pace in the 4 years ive been commuting. Came out at 19.4mph. If it wasnt for a few junctions etc I might have hit 20.
mace- x-post- Yes my physio showed me it a few weeks back. He was doing one of those progressive stretches whereby every 30 secs you exert downward force and it switches off muscle reflexes and allows the stretch to go further. In the absence of another person to do the stretch with me I can replicate it on a door frame.
RPM is the Les Mills version of spinning. Personally I dont like it as there is to much stopping and starting and too much up and down on the gears.
my wife used to be veggie. She still wont eat steak, lamb or meat off the bone but its progress. It tends to mean we get through a lot of chicken breasts!
Pleasing cycle home last night, average pace of 19.4 mph which is my fastest in 4 years of doing it. Back on the tempo's tonight, 3 x 15 min. Will decide last minute whether to treadmill or go outside.
Lit- I'm confused...are you in Notts or Scotland?
I had a good go at the hamstring and calf stretching yesterday and my nerve paid feels reduced today.
it depends what the purpose of the workout is as to whether its a reasonable workout i would have thought. If the work out is a recovery run between two hard sessions and its purpose is just to get some blood flowing and flush the legs ready for the next session then 1-2 miles might well be sufficient to be a reasonable workout.
My shortest run is 30 minutes so about 3.5m. If my legs feel so bad i would just cycle lightly.
