Moring all... Day off today so I hope to fit in a longish run this morning depending on how hot it gets. So far it feels comfortable with a light breeze..
shades - I was surprised the that yoghurt upset my stomach like that. I do know I have to be carefull what I eat the day before a long run but didn't think a warm yoghurt would affect me like that...(note to self : don't eat leftover dairy)
begining to start really focusing on Chester now have spoken to a few people that have run it before and they all say its a great race for a PB. Feeling excited about meeting everyone and with the positive year so far feeling good about how my training is going...just need to be careful on my bike ride 2 weeks before, a good start to my taper weeks though...
Evening all. .Hope you have all had a good weekend running. . I've been on the bike most of last week but thought I should head out and go for a run do I did a slowish 14 miles yesterday and a fairly quick 6 this evening but that was due to eating a yoghurt that had been left on the side and I had to get home asap..
S32 - When I do my long runs (10+miles) I take a camelbak with me. It took a little while to get used to carrying 2ltrs of water on my back but now I'm used to it and I wouldn't go without it now. .worth looking into.
Lily - technology is great when it works. It's good to have gone out without it and still done 13 miles. I do occasionally leave mine at home and have a run on feel.
Was very warm today so when I got home from work I decided to swap my running shoes for two wheels. Had a great 30 mile ride along the Thames path only small issue I had is that I need a softer saddle. . Ouch numb bum. .
Evening folks... How you are all staying safe with the warmer weather.
I had a really tough but good session with the club this evening. We did a pyramid session. 400m 800, 1200, 1600, 1200, 800, 400 m with 200m jog recovery.. The thing I am really chuffed with is that I managed to get the mile time down below 6 min. I got my timed mile time to 5:53 so really pleased but so knackering. Might head out for a long cycle tomorrow evening.
shades - well done on a PB no matter how small a PB is a PB.
I went out for a long run today and consciously kept my speed down. I ran the first 8.2 miles at 8:15/mile which was such hard work and after a desperate pitstop i ran the remaining 6 miles at 7:53/mile so in total it was about 8min/mile and i found that tougher than going full speed...now for some rest... enjoy your sunday folks...
