Tommy - it's 7th December
muddy - HA ! yea, been there when my kids were nippers. One second they're under your feet, next they're hiding in the loo rolls or behind cereal boxes and i'm running to the exit thinking they've been nabbed
Richard - nice session, good luck
Skinny - 45 blinkin' minutes !!?? Another reason i don't do downtime is i'd seize up. If i keep running i'm fine and just have the odd stretch ( probably a couple of minutes a day in total ) so i guess if you're on low miles at the moment that's why you have to stretch so much. Or is that normal when you're in full training ?
Charlie - welcome and good luck with your return to running. The bit about sheep shit made me chuckle a lot.
This week was the first of an 11 week build up to December's 10 and i've gone for Daniel's half marathon plan with 3 weeks of phase 2, 5 weeks of phase 3 and the final 3 weeks in phase 4.
Last week's parkrun was used to give me some idea of where i was having had a summer of putting on weight ( and lately losing a chunk of that ) and no racing.
So, Tuesday was 3wu, and then 5 repeats of 200(200jog), 200(400jog), 400(200jog) at about 3k pace. McM and Daniels give around 5:20pace or 80s per 40 which was intimidating !! 200s were all over the place ( not least because of confusing some sort of pace alert with the end of the rep a few times, so slowing down then going again ) Hard work by the time i got to the last 400 and after hitting 84 seconds, including a u-turn, for that i knew it was about enough. Certainly made me think about the paces Bob's been hitting, that's for sure
And this morning 2m wu then 4 x 1m off 60 seconds rounded off with 4 x 200. Miles were a bit quick averaging 6:05 and should have been 6:10
That's 48M this week with a long run to come tomorrow so should nudge into the 60's
.... and 11st 12 at weigh in this morning
