NP ...... a very worthy charity ... Nice swim and hope the MLR went well , you are really banging out those miles
Colin.... , nice run with club , hope the groin pain is just temporary niggle you could always ice it And it's nice to see you do what your wife says !
StewartC .... you are far from lazy you PB ' d over a half marathon last week !
SM6 ... That really was a superb interval session very speedy !!!
Mace ....... good luck this weekend , that reminds me of a female club mate a couple years ago , she entered and trained for Geneva marathon , booked herself and family into a top hotel ... Turned up to discover it had been the previous weekend !!!!
MG1 ......good cross training , I too enjoy those weights and core sessions and feel the really help
Tek .....what do you carry in the back pack ?
Fiona ..... great to see you running , i take it you are still doing VLM ?
Todays session was 10 miles inc 6 x 1k reps I did 5.5 miles easy outside it was such a lovely morning , then headed for the gym and treadmill for the intervals Which I hate hate hate !!! Glad to get it over ... Set speed at 7 min milling for the reps and slowed down to jog for 2 mins recovery between each one
off to a spa for a couple of days tomorrow with some friends for my mates 50th , I have a sports massage booked , I think it's going to be painful my legs must be a right mess with all this training , plus I have to get a 12/13 MLR done tomorrow morning before we set off , I am sure my legs will benefit though
thanks for the birthday wishes , birthdays seem to come found pretty quick don't they , thank god for wava scores Sundays half gave me 74.8% in our club championship ,
Tek nice mini doubles and great pace on the treddie
Fiona lovely to see you running again , looks like the rest did you good , fast session well done
MG1 nice run on tired legs
NP enjoy your second run later ( May pop out again myself )
StewartC look after yourself have an easy run later
Colin I only started adding cross training in to my schedule a year ago while I was injured ( after many many years of just running ) I now do Pilates and weights and can feel a real difference around my core , which was weak , when we run we use the whole body not just the legs , the stronger the core and upper body the less tired we should get towards the end if a marathon , of course it means finding the time to fit it all in , I have to do mine at a class to get me motivated
weights/ core class followed by Pilates and a 6 mile recovery run today , contemplating another 4 easy later I have a week off and plenty of time , trouble is also lots of social stuff planned so need to work off loads of calories
Tek bloody hell !! Lucky there was no real damage to your arm , it obviously didn't affect your tempo run , great pace awesome running !!
NP 20.8 !!! No way , I would have had to do the extra .2 Brilliant long run all the same
HM4 we'll done indeed lovely run missus
Stewartc you will still be recovering from last weeks half so don't be too hard on yourself , another 20 in the bank !
fiona 72 miles on a bike wow good luck with that , you really are keeping that fitness up hope to see you banging out some running miles soon
bideford half marathon for me today , a tad disappointed with 1.43.37 I have to remind myself I am getting older 52 tomorrow still hanging on to the low 1.40s but training hard to stay there , although there was a fair head wind for the the first 7 miles out and back but as usual there didn't seem to be a tail wind coming back, undulating course
Fiona/ AGF I really feel for you both I was about benched about this time last year after slogging through the majority of my marathon schedule , keep up beat and cross training , and AGF !!! not too much comfort eating
all easy for me this week mini taper for bideford half , or as Tek said last year ( yes I remember!) old biddyford half , I got first old biddy last year in 1.40 .21 , don't think I will get 1st this year having seen the list , but just dipping under 1.40 would make my day !!! No year it will be my last race as a 51 year old
