P&D spring marathon 2017

Which Ironman have you entered Reg? 

Sounds lovely Tom! 

I'm swapping in an extra rest day, then will pick up my easy 6 miler tomorrow. I'm still sore from the crash + have too much work to be done today.

HA - don't read this bit, it's triathlon related (but thank you for your concern): AlanB, you're a true cyclist. Just a training wheel thankfully. However, it is royally twisted and I also remember a cracking noise as I went down, she's not carbon, and I can't see anything on the frame, but she's quite old now so I wouldn't be surprised if it was terminal  

"Never give up on triathlon" - love this Reg. Sorry to hear you won't be spring marathoning, but it sound like the right move.

HA - I think the dark side will always be part of me, but I've still got at least a couple years of coasting off the Ironman so I don't actually have to do a triathlon for ages.

NE - Maybe you go into some kind of strange zen mode during races, hence reducing heartrate?

Rob - Quite impressed you've counted how many runs you have.

Back to track for me last night, I ran with the 'developer' group and pleased I did, I would have struggled doing much more. My quads are just getting so sore!

Also crashed my bike on the way home, on my good bike, completely buckled the front wheel. I think the universe is trying to tell me to give up triathlon and focus on running.

Sorry to hear Sorequads. I've recovered in approx. 5 weeks too (with gradual introduction of running since week 2). Rolling and strength helped a lot.  

Fantastic podiums from others, and prizes, and serious P&D runs already.

I'm still taking it relatively easy, I'll do 10 miles on the weekend and if that goes well I'll jump into P&D week 3 next week.

My headband arrived today.. It's very pretty.

JB, I'm genuinely looking for a headband at the moment, I'd love a P&D thread one

Thanks Scott - feeling good now. My physio has banned me from the bike until my knee was back to full strength.. do you swim? I spent recovery days swimming and doing S&C.

Nice work AWC and Millsy. Speedy first lady there. I dream of being first lady (not Trumps), have only managed 2nd so far.

Great report Macca, I've done the same thing to my quads during a trail marathon.. I'm very impressed you finished in that state. 

Slow jog to work this morning, I went back to sleep after my alarm and the only way to get a run in was to run to (and from) work with a giant backpack with laptop, toiletries etc.

I have joined the strava group too - I should be easy to spot as one of about 3 women on there.

Ha, Joe, it looks like you were about to take the finish ribbon from the leading lady. I'll be listening to the latest MT on my walk home tonight, will listen out. 

Well done Macca on the ultra!

Sorry about the knee Scott - fingers crossed the coach can fix you.


I'm back running post-illness, a slow 30 mins over the weekend, and finally up to 40 mins last night. Still no knee pain. Things are looking good. I'm now on an alternative first couple weeks of P&D before jumping in properly when I think the knee is fully ready.

Cough cough. I'm still ill. Have entered the 18 w 55 plan into my spreadsheet, but will have to amend the first few weeks to account for slowly slowly knee rehab and what is clearly the worst cold anyone has had ever.

Do any of you run the Manchester parks XC? I'm supposedly making my debut at Heaton Park next week.

New thread, wiew!

Nice work in NZ Joe. Queenstown is lovely, lucky they didn't send you up those mountains really..

I'm joining the +3s with target of GFA sub 3:45 at Manchester.

Knee is coming along nicely have made two 30min runs with no pain. But am now back on complete rest with a horrible cold, silver lining is that the rest can only help the knee recover.

Tom, 4.30AM? You're breaking rule 1 of the 'Coop Life Rules': No getting up before 5 am to go for a run/swim/cycle. 

Sorry to hear of the turd incident NorthEnder. 

Good luck to all racing XC this weekend. 

Another 20 mins of running with no knee pain yesterday. Take that runners knee!
