Moraghan Training - Stevie G

Probably the right decision Stevie.

8.5M xc home for me tonight, which felt OK and the legs didn't protest too much. Rest day tomorrow, and either a 10 or 15 Sunday depending on how the legs feel after that.

Anyone racing this weekend?

Nice speedy sessions chaps - I'm getting breathy just reading about them!

SG - have you thought about the regent's Park 10k series at all? Easy access via Marylebone station, look pretty fast and are on Po10

Easy 5.5M xc to station tis morning. Not eaten!

Ouch Stevie - 20x anything is going to be tough!  Nice one...

Bus - It has to be the official long course distance, I don't get into all that ultra nonsense!

Fair enough Andrew (though that does officially make you a big girls blouse )

Yes Stevie - pretty fast, but not Po10 unfortunately!

Andrew - nah, you need this as your real Lakes Ironman:

Swim: Length of Windermere

Bike: Fred Whitton of course!

Run: BGR or Lakeland 100 

Something similar has already been done (of course!) or at least a variation where the swim was the length of Coniston Water:

Stevie - do the 10k, just take it easy between now and then. A 5 won't have taken much out of you....

Dachs - you are very hard on yourself! I guess that's why you have made the phenomenal progression you have

Nice progression Andy. Going back over HK and Wrynose back again would have made it an epic! Fred Whitton on the cards?

Scott - 20 reps over Itchen bridge would look very odd to an onlooker!

As far as races lined up, I've got Marlow 5, 10th May and Staines 10k 17th May confirmed so far and possibly a local off-road 10k on the 26th April and Pednor 5 on the 4th May.

Another easy run planned for lunch time today as I don't think the legs are ready for speed work just yet.....

Nice one Stevie - excellent time that, and especially on a course with hills. What a last mile too! And doubly well done for hurting the footy short guy

Have you got  fast 1ok lined up to capitalise on the form?

Wasn't quite up a tree - just ready to get up it if needed

Well - wasn't eaten, so happy

Andrew - looking at your strava log for the Lakes, seems like you had a lot of fun up there!

One thing I don't do nearly enough is take my bike when I go to the lakes...

I'm hoping the dog warden is (was?) fat to keep the beats full for a while

Andrew - Wrynose is a fantastic climb.  The descent is a bit hairy though, especially as the road surface is in such a state! Did you do Hardknott as well?

Right, just off to catch the train and then run home - fingers crossed I don't get eaten

Good work, now time to T-off then!

5.5M easy Xc this morning and legs were ok (though hamstrings are protesting now after sitting down!)

Another dog related incident though - in the same wood that surrounds a massive country pile of some rock star where his three Dobermans used to occasionally stray, I came across two very large mastiff type dogs. Very mean and muscular looking with that wrinkled muzzle thing going on. Discretion being the better part of valour, I stopped in my tracks about 50 yards from them and waited for the owner to appear. No one did, so I carefully made my way away from the dogs, and discretely position a large bush and climbable tree between myself and them – just in case!

After initially staring at me, they seemed fairly indifferent and despite undoubtedly being able to smell my fairly obvious fear (!!) they continued on their way with no fuss or noise.  I discretely slid through the trees in the other direction and then carried on myself along the footpath, checking over my shoulder for a while.

They were probably not a threat, but given recent events, the fact that there was two of them, they were very large and no one was with them made me very nervous - I had visions of them simply ripping me apart which they could easily have done if they'd fancied it!

Given I have to go this way regularly (including to get home tonight!) and don't relish testing out how friendly they are, so have reported it to the local dog warden and am keeping my fingers crossed they follow it up...

Nice pace and good consistency SG.

Easy recovery run for me at lunch in the sunshine. Just 4 miles and flattish, but legs felt better at the end than the start, which I guess is what a recovery run is for!
