ASICS Target 26.2 voting 2015: Meet the sub 3.30-ers

Posted: 14/12/2014 at 14:27
Thanks, soups. I'm a bit of a bad penny. I just keep coming back I got over chest infections, slipped discs and buggered achilles ... so a leaky heart valve should be a piece of cake some relentless positivity is called for
Nice 12 today.

Fingers crossed for Jo!! I soooo want her to win especially as they cut her off lottery funding, b*st*rds. Shame I can't vote as I'm not in the UK It will be close coz most people will probably go for Hamilton. Contenders from the world of athletics always seem to have a bit of a tough time... C'mon voting public, prove me wrong tonight and go with the person who's clearly put in one of the gutsiest performances I've ever seen

Hola!

Congrats on the job front, Gobi

22k on a treadie is pretty hardcore, em. I've never managed more than 9 before losing the will to live ...

Another crazy work week d&d. I'm shattered. Only managed 4 runs this week. Exhaustion took its toll and sleep won over training most days .

We just booked a week in Lanzarote though. First week of January. Can't wait. I so need a break.... At least it's Christmas soon which means 5 days in a row of no work there's light at the end of the tunnel.

What: 11 miles
Why: playing catch up
Last hard: 12 hours of work with no break on Thurs
Last rest: Friday
Lyrics: no

RW Forum Six - Sub 3:30

Glad the op went ok, Minni. I'd love some morphine as work stress means I get very little sleep

Fancy that your heart had slowed down while mine has sped up, 2old. You're a fast runner with a slow heartbeat and I'm a slow runner with a fast heartbeat both are not normal.

Hope your lungs are ok, O4S.

Managed only 3 runs this week partly due to work and partly due to weather (rain and storm) but one of them was an 11 miler. Hoping for another longish run tomorrow

Yessss!! I'm sooooo happy you won, superman. Silly work hours meant I couldn't follow the thread the way I wanted to but I've just caught up with everything. It was a tough choice as there were some strong contenders so I was glad I knew you from Malcs' thread (and we both ran Boston this year ) otherwise I may have had to toss a coin. Congrats buddy, you deserve it especially after coming so close last year.

Nice work chunky and OH

Sorry you are having such a rotten time, Rocky. But you were so right yesterday saying to look forward. I inevitably compare my times to last year when I was recovering from a slipped disc and I thought I was slow then .... Haha, little did I know.

Em: nice 20k. 23 degrees is a tad warm for an office

What: 3 easy
Why: don't do hard
Last hard: n/a
Last rest: 28/11

Hello all

Just putting my feet up after yet another hellish week at work and a bunch of family stuff yesterday. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

Somehow I racked up 50 miles this week. Amazing. And I feel really good. So my leaky heart valve can obviously tolerate mileage as long as it's slooow mileage

what: 9 and a bit d&d
Why: because I want to
Last hard: can't remember
Last rest: 28/11
Lyrics: yes

Hi everyone, sorry haven't been around much lately but work is simply nuts at the mo

In other news I was diagnosed with a leaky heart valve which is kind of good and bad. At least I know now what's wrong with me and why my running is deteriorating. I need to see another specialist in January to see if it can be fixed. It's nothing life-threatening and right now I'm on meds to help with the arrhythmia and I'm even allowed to run albeit slowly. I may never run marathons again although I'm not giving up hope just yet

Run well, all

Errrm, rather you than me O4S!!

A lot of swimming going on here btw .

Minni: did you hear that Jantastic will include swimming and biking this year? I think that's a great idea although I'm probably not going to sign up as I may have to go for heart surgery

I've done Halstead, kiwi and loved it even though those undulations seemed like the Rocky Mountains on the second lap

Hope you managed to get done running in this weekend Freemers.

Despite another tough working week I somehow managed to get 50 miles in. No idea how. I sort of Forrest Gumped it I guess Not quite up to 10 miles in distance but 4 runs of 9 miles and a couple of 5-6 milers got me there. I keep telling myself that someone that runs 50 miles per week can't possibly have a heart problem as long as I run mega slow it seems to work quite well.

Afternoon all finally resurfacing after a manic two working weeks, last weekend included

Great to see stickless, Pammie and NZC back posting.

LMH seems to be making a good recovery. Very encouraging.

Em: hope your witness statement will help to get that reckless driver properly fined. This seems to be a never-ending story.

Great news that Giselle is now home, Wabo

Not so great news from me. I finally had my long overdue appointment at the cardiologist and it turns out that I have a valve that doesn't close properly. This explains all those strange things going on like palpitations, arrhythmia, insomnia and deterioration of running performance. I have to see another specialist in January to see if it can be fixed. Right now I'm on meds and only allowed to exercise very moderately but at least I'm not completely grounded. Doc said light exercise was better than no exercise
