Moraghan Training - Stevie G

Posted: Today at 17:48

I'm doing a 5000m on the track at Oxford tomorrow. I've dropped 12lb's in weight in 6 weeks so at least I won't have that to cart around.

If I get within 3 minutes of the pb of the lady I'm running with on Sunday, I'll be doing well.

Ditch the tech?

I know exactly what you mean. Most of my days are spent with people who were fully occupied once fighting a world war. The people you're talking about would pause for thought should you give them the option of death or not having their phone.

Yes, its 30mph, but all things considered, the 'double flash' was a good wake up call. I wasn't concentrating on the job in hand.

Any penalty will be richly deserved, I needed taking down a peg or two, I've been getting a bit too full of myself lately.

I should avoid a ban though. I've a couple of dozen old ladies (average age 86) who rely on me keeping their gardens in shape. If not for that, they would have to move into sheltered accommodation. They would not be happy.

A feisty women in her mid 90's who's not adverse to using language is quite a sight.

I've a race on this weekend and expect to be giving a Police Inspector a lift to the venue. I need supervising.

If only I could persuade some of you guys to do nothing at all for six weeks, then start again from scratch.

You'll discover what a peak really is.

Well it used to be 50mph when I cycled down this road, but most of you are correct.


 So 10 out 10 for you.

And I dare say a few points for me. 

In the post.

Certainly a step up from the two parking tickets I've received in 36 years behind the wheel.

40mph plus. Good for half a dozen I reckon.

After a discussion with the Police, they are going to have the signs cleaned up and lines repainted. 

As the conversation went with those who know me, "You got clocked by a speed camera!, what you? how? you're kidding? 

Of course I'll take the 'hit'. No question. The laws the law.

Bus, I'd wager you've been racing over trained and knackered for so long you can't remember what its like to race when in top form.

Wind, rain, sun. Makes no difference. When really fit and flying you can run through a brick wall, and some. 

I remember that feeling and Dachs knows the feeling. Its a question of power. Yes, Dachs ran 2:42, which for most of us is fast, but he was only running along in the latter stages not powering through the field going faster and faster. Big difference.

Quality of nutrition is the only way. The body has its own rate of repair.

If you did understand the middle section of this report, you would realise that trying to run while this condition was still volatile would probably finish you as a runner indefinitely.

Take the advise. The three months.

And double it. 

You'll thank me one day.

Here's one for all you experienced drivers out there. 

From what we all know roads to be like, what would you say the speed limit on this one is?

Dachs, reading into your training reports over the past few months, I'd say that you were already physically drained and have been for quite a while.

Read back far enough and you'll find the turning point.

I wasn't aware of any injuries Phil, or was it the gout? Well done on toeing the line though.

When I attempted to drop out of the London marathon once, I asked a spectator the best way to the finish (I meant via train). They pointed down the course, 'that ways best'. I got the message.
