Was away yesterday so a little catching up and back reading
SM6 well done on the park run yesterday and well done with making it up to well over 7 miles.
Joe hope you managed to pace your mate round. always enjoy pacing for others to PB
MG1 another great 20 banked in poor conditions and a nice run today with great totals for the week
Teknik nice running after your 20 yesterday and well done on todays effort and another good weeks running, on the run today we talked about running with and without gadgets, one of the fellas ran with us as no one turned up for his group and with no Garmin he had no idea how well he was running until the end and was well surprised that not only did he run so fast but how well he felt.
OH sea swim followed by a run, sir your a man of steel
SC sounds like the body pump is helping out nicely with the running the roller will help with the achilles.
NN that was a great track session you did and followed up with a good 6 miles yesterday Hope the 21 mile run went well. As for the 55 year old I think the cross over from the cycling works well Fiona is a great example of this from last years marathon also the strength work he is doing will stop muscle wastage that us old folk suffer from the 1:22 half I did in the summer on low fast milage came as a shock to me as it was only 3 mins shy of my PB. We all need to mix it up or every run just becomes the same.
Trici well done for going out for 3 hours the weather here today was nasty and I wasn't out as long as you. Hope you warm up soon and a massive well done on the 17 miles.
Well went down to my son and daughter in law early yesterday morning, driving down in the sleet and snow having spent 20min scraping the ice off the car. We arrived and then set off for the Parkrun which is on a trail, Wendy and I did a warm up just as it started to snow she showed me about 70% of the course which is two laps with a very steep incline the section I didn't get to see was the muddy part at the back of a manor house. Well some people thought it was strange to see a guy running with a dog and a few young lads asked if the Buddy was fast Two or three people got the jump on us at the start but after about 50 yards we where at the front, there is a out and back section just after the start and after going around a cone we where heading back along the track with 98 other runners coming in the other direction, Buddy slowed like never before and didn't like this but we where on one side and everyone passed on the other side. Back in to the open Buddy started to run again and down the steep incline I had to hold him back sit was so steep. We started to climb and this section is a big fig 8 without crossing in the middle and on to the muddy section, three or four steps in slipping and sliding and I nearly lost a shoe. The lace started to come undone but I just carried on, second lap was very similar to the first but only passing two or three people in the other direction on the out and back section. The last section is on tarmac and a race for the line, my Garmin said 17:37 and so did the Parkrun so setting another course record We carried on and did a warm down l
