Fiona - mrs m has just taken up walking with a friend in the evenings so i think running may be a way off yet
Tek - lol @ boozing and smoking
I think the issue is more she prefers me with a bit of meat on me and was a bit shocked at the weight i lost mara training. I do most of my running before the kids are even awake so it's not like i'm eating into family time.
Nurse - you'll be ok and i'm sure it won't take too long to get back to where you were. And a nice bit of liver will boost the iron levels
Stewart - good to see the HR a bit lower. Much lower than you normally train at ? I do often wonder if you have your max right ?
Stuart - nice intervals, i try to avoid in winds above 2/3 mph
Good to hear things are looking a bit better for NP and Tek
jason i wish i hadn't just seen your weekly mileage
Sounds like a top week OH and a great report
Nice training all
I'm feeling a bit lazy and fat at the moment having got pissed as a newt ( on mrs m's instructions ) on Saturday, missing my long run Sunday with a bad case of hangoveritis, and then taking an un-deserved day's rest yesterday.
On top of this short term blip, i'm in danger of becoming de-motivated as i found out from a third party over the weekend that mrs m was secretly hoping i'd be knocking the running on the head over the summer and when i subtly dropped the subject of Autumn Marathons into the conversation she didn't seem overly enthusiastic ...
VT - mine always plays up if i forget to tighten it. I find now that i have to tighten it right up every run as it works loose all the time. Maybe i need a new strap... Also, a bit of lubricating jelly improves the contact.
Rubbish - enjoy the beer, i've forgotten what running a 20 miler feels like
Andi - i gave up the smokes about 8 years ago and still remember vividly the burning in my throat first time i went for a run a few months after giving up. Giving up can only improve you, how much i don't know but for sure you'll never hit your potential all the time you're smoking.
Brian - missed my long run Sunday for similar reasons That's a corking 5k time. Talking of the hurt zone, i marshalled our local parkrun last Saturday and i was shocked how much the fella who won it seemed to be hurting as he went past me ... he was making a right old racket after just 2k, thought he was on his way out I guess that's the pain you have to go through for a 15:30 and a 2minute win though. Sure made me consider how much more i could push myself
chick - sorry to hear that, think i'd give the 10k a miss myself but fingers x'd it holds up and good luck
