Badbark - Bite the bullet and email them - it'll be the best 50€ you ever spent! Where are you on holiday? Mind you, at the moment, anywhere "on holiday" with "pool and bar" sounds good!
Mind you, I'm starting to get a bit p*ssed off with this whole Jantastic lark. It sort of pushes you to run when it's not sensible, and now I've had to set my March targets about five times and it won't let me log any runs!
Question - what do I do to stop my typing being in Spanish language default setting? Every time I write words like problema, sesión, maratón, momento, etc. they come out like that...
Still a bit wary of pushing it too much on my comeback legs, so did 10 miles this morning with 5 @ 6:50mm. Felt o.k., although I think I have lost some fitness in this lost week (5 days). Is that possible?
If all goes well I'll go straight back into P&D, but the up to 55 miles plan. I have a 10k next sunday, so I'll do the 17 miler on Friday and generally shuffle things around a bit. Compared to the 55-70mpw plan, this one seems just as intense, but you get an extra day off, which has to be A Good Thing.
Looking forward to those race reports, with or without knickers.
Jegleson - x-post - I would say that 35 miles for marathon training is a bit skimpy. You don't necessarily have to follow a Schedule, but it is a question of getting your long run in every week, a médium-long one in midweek and some kind of reps and/or tempo session. How many times are you getting out every week?
Hope Speedy and Lit got on all right. In the race, I mean, not with each other. Although that as well.
That's excellent news, Gul. Does it mean earlier or later starts for you?
Birch - That is serious miles!
I finally laced up the trainers and got out there today having not run since last Sunday's aborted long run. I did 5 miles in progression, starting at 7:45mm and finishing at 6:45mm. I still felt the niggles but felt much better. I have set 10 miles as tomorrow's target, with some miles @ PMP, but hopefully I'll be up for doing a few more, if all goes well. Even so, I might pay another visit to the fizz midweek, just to iron any problems out. At this stage I feel as if this is manageable - not perfect, but manageable.
Later I will post a pic of the entrecôte steak I fully intend to do justice to for dinner.
It's hard enough finding a shoe that suits you without the companies mucking about with the successive models and generally ruining them. This was the case with the Mizuno Wave Riders - I loved the 12s and 13s, and then the 14s turned out to be totally unwearable.
Minni / KR O.k., I'll take your advice and stay in this morning as well. I slept much better last night and the legs feel all right this morning. I am probably hyper-sensitive to any niggle or ache now, but my legs do feel tired still, as if I had walked all around town in uncomfortable dress shoes, or something.I will do some bike this morning and hopefully get out tomorrow - this is doing my head in, almost literally.
One thing is amazing, though - despite doing no running since last Sunday and not really paying attention to diet, I seem to have lost nearly 2 kilos in weight!!
