SM, a good week of training again, interesting that you feel the Achilles is a way off, does it still hurt, the reason I ask is my one has started playing up this week, it is a bit niggly the day after and is a lot better the following day but I can still notice tightness during the run, it is very frustrating as it was the calf last week no sign of any issue with the Achilles, now the calf is fine!
Ollie, well done with the 5 today
NP, nice doubling, all the training up on the trails will serve you well for the xc event in December.
Fiona, well done with all the core work I should make an effort to do more
Mace, great to hear you are on the mend, I feel your pain re extra lumber, I am over a stone heavier than I was in the spring, I sure it will start coming off once I can up the mileage.
Tek, sounds like the mojo is slowly returning,
Tricia, OH Cal and Dr Dan, good luck racing this weekend
S17, a cracking parkrun time,
A mixed week so far, as stated above the Achilles on my right leg has been a little problematic, but I have managed to run on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 3, 3, and 4 miles respectively, a swim on Monday and Thursday and one body balance class. I might get the bike on the turbo later and if the Achilles is ok I'll do another short run tomorrow,
Cal, congratulations on another sub 2 HM, you deserve a rest after next week you have raced a lot this year
Fiona, congratulations, a champs start a London and a PB awesome achievement, I think the club are doing them at the end of the month throughout the winter I'll find out if non members can take part if you like.
Tek, I do hope so but I'll need to be careful, good to see you are back on it and a decent week by the sounds of it
SM, hope you are well and that ankle is ok
Gaz, congratulations looks like you paced it perfectly,
OH, well done yesterday sounds like it was a tough day, I bet the dip in the loch was good, although a ta chilly!
NP, it is good to be back even though I am so unfit, well done with the trial running, and I hope the club hadicap race went well
S17, easy does it, your legs will need a few weeks to recover after the marathon
Fiona, congratulation today I didn't follow you live but checked in once I returned,
#Something a little different today it was the first of the winter tri club duathlons today, the plan was to jog the two run sections, as per it was a bit harder than a job probably closer to threshold, 11.5 miles in total four for the run, happy enough even though the running pace was not very good.
Ollie, loved the report, congratulations an awesome achievement enjoy the recovery
Dr Dan, congratulations with the marathon PB, I hope those legs are starting to feel more like your own, I drove back from Manchester the day after my marathon, getting out of the car was ouchy!
NP, a good mix of training glad too see you running again,
OH, good luck tomorrow and enjoy the weekend in Wales
Fiona, good luck at Frankfurt, is there a tracker for the race?
Tek, good to hear you are building up again
Gaz, good luck in Auckland, looking forward to the report
SM, a good tempo run, well done and I hope the ankle is improving
S17, a good session in the gym well done
Been a bit lazy this week, I decided to give the calf a bit of time this week and haven't done very much at all, a swim with the Tri club on Monday an aborted run on Wednesday during the warm up I think I could have managed a run but it would have been a bit sore after so decided against it, the extra day or two helped as I managed three miles at the park with no niggle during or after, although the sports massage did a little.
Gaz, 6 days! no wonder you were angry, enjoy those trails
Cal, I quite like running at this time of year, although the low sun can be a pain, well done with the tempo run
Ollie, congratulations an amazing time and well deserved you have trained very hard for it
Fiona, a lovely day for a cycle once the fog cleared away,
SM, an eventful weekend in the hills by the sounds of it
NP, I am also trying to get in the pool more than I have, well done with the trail running and enjoy the recovery run later
After three days of no running I went out for a short run around the uni campus, the run went ok and even though I could feel the calf it wasn't painful, so I plodded on for three miles in total, afterwards was a different matter, it was quite tender and coming down the stairs is a bit uncomfortable, looks like I'll need a bit more time out, at least it is not the Achilles
