Who was that Philip?

Yeah, Sam's run was pretty darn incredible - she is a machine! Her first 100 as well. personally I can't even begin to contemplate running that sort of distance.

This was just a week after Jasmin Paris took a new ladies record for the Bob Graham Round in what is quite possibly the best athletic performance of this century so far. Imagine a lady athlete having turned up at London and not just smashed Paula's marathon record, but come in a second or two behind Biwott for 3rd place overall and you might come close to what this means!

Very nice reps SG

 

You can't beat a full English for re-fuelling - full of protein! There's a school of thought that says plenty of caffeine straight after helps flush out lactic and speed up muscle recovery. Either way, I feel much better for it

It had it's own thread Simon. The best thing, amongst many great things about it, were Dachs commemorative plates. Of course he is too busy running 100miles a week to bother with such things at the moment . Nice session by the way.

A bank holiday break to Portsmouth (and yes, my question is "why?" as well!) means I had to do my LSR this morning instead of Sunday.  I haven't done a long road run for a while and it actually came out quite well - 15.3M at 7:13 pace all feeling relatively comfortable. Ten minutes quicker than last time I did it in Jan. Always nice to get a long run, full English and a pint of coffee out the way before work

Don't be silly AG!!!

I'd avoid anything other than REALLY easy this week. It's all too easy to think the legs have recovered from a marathon, do a wee bit too much and set back recovery....

My neighbours is an acupuncturist and alternative therapist - wouldn't let him stick pins in me though!

Thanks for the offer Ric - I'm on the official waiting list, but will tell them you have a number. No chance of prizes the way I'm running!! I've actually still got my vouchers from last year

Good session for full on winter conditions CC

Did the 5000m option today after 2M warm up. Aiming for 1:27 per lap, but failed miserably! First lap of 1:26 felt easy, but it tailed off quickly after that and I nearly gave up after 8 laps with pace falling off. Decided to just stick with whatever came out and in the end did the 5000 in 18:33, so at least sub 6mM (just!), so not a total disaster. It was windy on the back straight, but I think legs being not fully recovered from the race on Sunday being the main factor.

You're forgetting about the old RDM SG!

Go on, crack out sub 30 at Marlow, just to get back on the road.....you'd hardly break into a sweat for that!

Thinking of the Battersea Park one on 13th June, as that's my birthday. I suspect I may be over-ruled by the Mrs though!

Intending a 5000m or 6400m tempo on the track at lunch (providing its free!) but might do 1200m reps instead.....
