Overdone it?

Posted: Yesterday at 23:28

I am in feast or famine. On mfp days I'm very good. On non mfp days circumstances mean I'm terrible. The net result is neutral outcome.

Its good to have a break now and again, bob. Refreshes the desire. I don't know what it is/was but I'm much better than even three hours ago.

Yes undoubtedly. I use the calorie count from my hrm and scan the barcode of anything I can.

My failure has been in the four weeks I've been doing it I've had two weekend away at weddings and several work functions. Therefore I'm only doing 4-5 days a week.

That sounds atrocious skinny! No doubt that dog won't be put down. I'm assuming that dog has done it before from their reaction of 'we will have to put him down'. If not theyd have been shouting about how placid he normally is. 

Mace- weight loss baffles me. Despite my fitness pal efforts my weight has not moved. A receptionist in work casually said to me lastweek, like it was a compliment 'have you put weight on' I replied with 'why? Do I look fat?', her reply was 'no, you normally look to skinny but today you look normal'. Obviously I keep referring to her telling me I had got fat.

Did an easy 8 miles last night. Everythingfelt fine running. However about an hour later I started getting pain in my right knee. This morning I couldn't walk on it. Its got a lot better in last 8 hours to extent its just a bit sore.

Not sure what that's about!

Sounds like a tough back to back pair of sessions, Mace.

Lit, your run in the dark. Was it on unlit country roads? If so, i assume you wore a head torch? I have this alpkit gamma and have never used it. For those that have used one or something similar, if i did wear it, would it allow me to safelt continue using the dark country roads?

Parkrun and 5K Training

Unfortunately an equal mix of gymnastics, running and swimming is unlikely to be conducive to becoming a better runner.

What do the Tuesday and Thursday runs look like in terms of pace and distance? Generally to get better at something you need to train specifically and with running that would involve doing a bit more of it.

yes id agree that session isnt a great indicator but I have to take a pace from somewhere.

I am looking at the hr for the pace though and how much drift I have. I would normally race a half at around 175-180 average hr so ive got 5-7 secs per mile to drop plus 8-10% movement in hr.

fortunately I had been able to pack my own kit.

I am not sure 3 x 1 mile efforts is a great idea at lunchtime. Sat here a little red and sweaty and have back to back clients in from 2.30. However, the run went well.

Following a 15 min warm up i did the session off 2 minutes (bit of stretching). I found it difficult to tune into 6.50 pace so they all came out 6.47 (162 bpm), 6.44 (162) and 6.47 (163). Now to me that suggests i ought to be capable of a sub 90 half on sunday.

Hopefully so.

If I can just nip under 90 in Droitwich sunday that would give me a decent platform and training paces to get going with.

My wife is getting me one of those garmin 620's for xmas so that is sufficient incentive to stay injury free and get back into it.

I am going to go out at lunchtime and do my 3 x 1m at 6.50 pace. Would be silly to waste what must be the last spot of warmth and sunshine.

Anyone else about on here?

I've been ticking over since last week. Managed a 9 miler Saturday am and covered 36 miles for the week without issue.

I have the droitwich half marathon Sunday which is my pb course. Obviously not in that shape given recent lay off but targeting banking a sub 90.

Great progress indeed.

Usually when RB gives such a difficulty rating it is due to course length. The other explanation is simply that everyone else had a very good day, not due to the course, but because they had not raced in a while, had a lower handicap and trained hard all summer for this and smashed it.

Marrows- I am not surprised it was patchy based on those claims.
