PS - amazing pic! All the exploring/new routes must add a new dimension to your training I guess?! Mind you the views at 5:45am wouldn't be great in the dark!
Stonking mile there Will - I've never run just a mile flat out ... That said there is an annual timed mile event on a local track here .... It's open to all abilities but I have never had the nerve to rock up!
Carter - going thru similar with my 17yr old daughter... I feel your pain! Golf - yes, similar to all weather running, I am an all weather golfer - if the course is open on a Sat anoon then I will be on it! Played last Sat in 60mph winds & sideways rain and scored 18pts for the 9 holes... quite pleased with this given the conditions... Lots of half swing punch shots under the wind with a 7 iron instead of the usual wedge approaches into the greens... Worked well. Should have had more but the club slipped in my hands on the 8th tee producing a wild shot into the trees.. No score on that hole as result.
Will & Carter if I'm honest intervals are the only session I don't mind the treadmill for. I find it easy to measure pace, time & distance AND more to the point I find the time passes much more quickly doing intervals than running a constant even paced or progressive session.
All getting close Carter - you're in good nick & well prepared... signs are good for a cracking marathon!
cold & snow and sleet here over last few days... forced me onto the dreadmill again tonight. Did my first interval session since my return ... 4 miles with 5 x 3mins @ 6.40pace with 1min recoveries in the middle. 'Twas tough! No races booked - but thinking of a mountain/trail HM in June though.
All good running in tough weather conditions - good stuff.
incredibly windy yesterday morning but dry - managed 11 miles with middle 5 or 6 on easy trail round the local forest park. Bit of a plod @ 9:20 pace but felt a lot stronger at the end than previous longish runs. Another little bit of progress I suppose.
The Arsenal really didn't turn up did they ... Uphill battle now with 3 goals needed in Monaco.... Very disappointing
Bad night for the Pool tonight also Carl ...
Carter - my golf wasn't that bad - 17pts was for 9 holes only don't forget so I was only +1 nett. Had 35 Pts for the round after a further 18 Pts on the back 9. Club only runs 9 hole comps in the winter.
5 miles tonight up & down dale before dark... 8:21 pace avg - bitterly cold wind but nice and sunny!
Another Gooner here ... Just shouting from the armchair tomorrow evening!
Some great running again over the weekend folks.
Carter - a mediocre 17pts for 9 holes in Saturdays Club Comp. Putter was off - Three putted 3 greens for bogeys & had an OB off the tee on the 3rd . Still got cut by 0.6 to 14.6 though from the previous weeks 21pt effort.
Late home tonight so 5 miles on the treddie with middle 3 @ tempo pace of 7:45
