No such fun for me to report. I'm working from home today so off for a spin followed by core class followed by spa.....then some work type stuff.
Charlie- I think you're right re some people are barfers and some not. My earliest experience of it was in a 400m race when I was 11 years old. It was one of those inter schools champs so was probably the first time I was properly pushed in a race and I crossed the line gagging.
I've seen stuff with elites where they say the sign of a good session is if they want to vomit. I guess most people to get to that level risk injury as you did.
Mr v- Yes, I do get a slight sickness in the stomach feel when I think back to setting out for those 3 x 15 sessions!
Mace- I was also mainly cycling to work twice a week and giving that some welly.
I really dont like wearing running tights and dont really feel the cold in the lower half. That said, I recall Goater saying in his book that its better to be over dressed in training than under dressed due to what Bob said above.
Andrew- Yes MRI is 11th December. Not really sure of timescales thereafter. Were you able to complete the headstand? That sounds like fairly advanced yoga?
Mr v- Yes I quite enjoyed opening the legs up a bit and getting slightly out of breath. I think had i planned that run to be that in advance, I wouldnt have gone and done it.
Not run since saturday. Will do a few easy miles lunchtime to tick over but concentrating this week on some gym classes and just enough running to tick over so that i dont end up aching when i run again next week.
Second day here with a frost and minus figure on the car going x country.
Fortunately I have a work function tonight so had no plans to go out in the cold.
I am now getting the view that the hard training I was doing over the summer will have given gains, but its no good if every 8 weeks you spend 2 injured and you're better off training more conservatively but consistently and without injury.
I seem to be carrying a low level cold that I cant quite shake. Nothing major just a stuffy nose. More of an annoyance really.
Bob- Yes, I look back with hindsight and I was knackered, doing routine 4 x 10 or 3 x 15 sessions at lt and twice a week.
I recall Mr V having the same experience.
I really struggled in the longer LT efforts as named above and couldnt hold the pace v HR ratio to the end of the second effort, let alone session.
The 3 or 4 x 8 minute efforts however were much more enjoyable and latterly they were coming out in the 165 range and at the right pace without dropping off.
I'll have a look at that. I still have the Mcmillan - 'you only faster' hanging around my bedside drawer to read as well.
Im quite happy to train very hard, and kind of enjoy it. However it seems to get to the point where the risk of injury and taking 3 steps back from the 2 that have just gone forward, is extremly likely.
