Shades Marathon Training

Shades - lol er treatment is rest and then a few short runs followed by a gradual build up, ie not what i had done. Mind you even not running for nigh on a month then a few 3 milers it still fecking hurt.... I just pop some ibuprofen now and then to assist in any inflammation reduction. I just dont really want to have them all the time. Generally speaking it hurts more 5-7 days after any running than a day or so after which is strange.

Nothing entered uintil mid March so plenty of time to recover. Prob not run at all this month (the occasional run home from work if wet and not bothered with bike excepted). Will perhaps cycle a bit more albeit its dark when i finish work and also winter soon as some form of trying to remain relatively fit.

Howdy all

Still got a buggered foot not that it stopped me intending to do three lakes last week. What stopped me was a virus of some sort, probably gastero virus as i felt queasy running. Did day 1 in 5:23 with Hippo for most of it and er just about managed to hit 5 miles without stopping but it was hard work even doing that. We had sorta decided it 'could' have been lettuce poisoning as there was lettuce in the burger i had for dinner the night before and as Hippo put it i am a salad dodger

Day 2 was furzton which is 17 laps, i did 5 and went back to bed instead Wasn't feeling it at all and then spent the following day in bed too more cos there isn't a lot to do in MK other than Bletchley Park which involves a fair bit of outdoors.

Naturally get back to work and there is something going round here too.... think i dodged it or at least not got it yet which is more likely.

So er who thinks doing loch ness marathon having done a whopping 47 miles (26 of those were today i might add) since july 4th

Well er my foot tendonitis is not gone but i suspected as much but went anyway as i could (and did really) opt to travel amongst the back end of the pack. Foot was aching before 10k and i was on course for something around 5:25 espcially after extensive walking in the middle and over that hill then down the other side.

There was however a minor hitch to that finishing target, someone who had been running around me on and off for most of the race caught me up around mile 21 and we ran the rest of the way being she had left her friend with another friend who was on a bike cos she was going slower. Didn't run constantly but those who know the course will be surprised that with a first 5k of 31:18 with the large amount of drop would be amazeed we clocked 32:57 for the 35-40 km split, according to Strava anyway.

Ended up finishing in 5:05:07 which i coulda gotten under if i wasn't aching so much and also more to the point i noticed a tight ish hamstring on that last stretch scuppering any faster running. I may have er gone for a 'small' burger after my small plate of chicken stew post race too. It was a monster burger which is burger, cheese, onions bacon and er black pudding. It was nice

Shades - lol they have been on the shelf seeral years already so i think i am safe for now I would imagine at some point i'd do a short tri and decide afterwards.

Wouldn't sya foot was on mend more a case of a local 10k which has a vast buffet of food afterwards It also has a nice big hill more or less in the middle making a handy walking period. I only ever ran the whole hill once but i did break 50 mins that day.

Lol i dont er swim that well Nor do i intend to learn but counter to that i do seem to have TWO ironman books on my bookshelf....

Changed strava weekly distance targets tonight, its down to 15 miles from 40 for running and i have added cycling at 50 miles so far.

THere is a er 150 km SINGLE bike ride challenge for August, perhaps a target for the bank hol weekend being i not going to boston.

Also with tomorrows run/walk as well as another run sat and mon too perhaps i'll decide whether to bimble a local 10k on wed night or not. May depend on the whether to a certain extent as although its meant to be getting warmer from the weekend thats for the southerners only as per usual

My bottom hurts now... Not the flattest of cycle tracks shall we say Tree root bumps galore basically. Still will go out on bile tonight once more somewhere. TOmorrow i'll do a shrtish running route. It will have hills in which i'd probably walk if in full working order so i'll er do the same tomorrow Means a 5 mile or so loop would be broken up into mile or so long running with lots of walking breaks. Run/walking was mentioned by physio anyway as a means to resuming.
