Lets hope not 15W truly pissed off with it now!-ice on every trail I run-today was 6 degrees but still a layer of ice everywhere htf??
So hip felt really stiff this morning and taking previous advice into account I decided to ditch the fell race- gutted but Lit had it spot on I think with change in running form could cause an injury. So went for a steady 16 miler- today was suppose to be 18 with 10MP- that would have been as bad as running the race- did 16 @MP+15% and was ok but glad to see the last mile come up-sore now but not too bad.
Next week is a recovery week but still has serious mileage in it just nothing faster than MLR pace-will see how that goes and plan to swop next weekends 16 with what today should have been.
I am beging to wonder if the 70-85 was the right choice and may look at the plan under that-is that 55-70? even before this weeks fall I was being to feel the mileage-the week before the plan started I did a 18 mile solo training run in av of 6:35 pace (off yearly av of 60 miles a week) after 5 weeks of the plan I am sure I could not run that now?? too many miles? or just need to give the plan a chance and I should expect to feel slower at this stage? any thoughts greatly appreciated
So 15W you either ran the none MP miles today a lot slower, or last weeks 17 too faster than PnD suggests- i think i can guess which one it was! - well done
Mennania great time especially from none ideal training, I am struggling with confidence to run a lower mileage plan-think I may need 70-85 to get me my target then again its quite a jump up in weekly mileage so it could all go wrong!
Thanks for all the well wishes- a poor nights sleep with the pain from the hip but better than I expected today-Infact have just been out for a dog walk with the aid of ibuprofen and it was not too bad at all-even tried a slow stride!
Am thinking if same improvement tomorrow then maybe I could run (even poss the fell race) after all? thinking is- its bruising nothing more-so running on it will just hurt but won't make it worse? the fell race will hurt anyway-so…..-Ibuprofen for breakfast and you never know!
Well todays activity has helped take my mind of it-we collected our new puppy today a 7 week old Weimaraner and he is gorgeous (might not think that during the night)-hoping he will be a running partner for me and our other dog-we have 4 children youngest 22 none of who have run a single mile with me so have resorted to man's best friend-apart from having the odd poo on the run (who doesn't) they are much better company than the kids anyway!!
