Moraghan Training - Stevie G

x - post SG obviously the map does no justice and you may not know the area but the roads round there are Eastleigh type flat and I wouldn't expect wind to be a threat at all. Looks promising IMO

Moraghan Training - Stevie G

Posted: Yesterday at 21:37
I'm around SG but avoiding trying to post as I haven't been able to keep up, always on my phone posting lately but there deserves some credit! Especially the 28 lap beast you tackled

Not heard anything but the date rang a bell - quick check and SEAA fell running champs is on that weekend on the IOW and I'm there that weekend and will fancy a shot so probably no

Final session pre race for me today with just easy +2m tempo Thursday. Feeling in ok shape

Good running by all and seems everyone is niggle free too which is good (other than bus but hoping it clears and you do something about it)

Will post thoroughly when I get a chance to read back - anyone else racing this weekend other than the usual suspects in VLM?

Yes Scott, I did the same session on road last year before Eastleigh albeit it 8 x 1km, I was a little quicker today.

I think the mile rep session and this plus about 20-25 seconds per rep seems ok now as goal - Which puts me 5:20-5:25 per mile or 3:20-25 per KM

I'll be doing 5 or so easy tomorrow morning with strides and then 3/4 + tempo Thursday PM and strides

Hope your feeling ready for the big day! Looming

Haha I wish about the 15:0x 5km.. Maybe one day

Shame about the diagnosis but lots of people run with asthma or have exercise induced asthma and it doesn't impact performance. I wouldn't worry about being natty (natural) you have a medical condition and no option! Hope it doesn't prevent you running

Hope the running had been going well, I'm on strava too if you want a simpler format than my posts

ABP Southampton Half Marathon

Unlucky you're not racing Jack, a few runs to go now and hopefully nursed my body through to be able to run well Sunday.

I ran the 10km route the other day and seems pretty quick to be honest

Pleasing session at the track in windyish conditions

5 x 1KM off 2:00 

Really should have stuck to pacing (maybe 3:10s) to do 8 but felt hard and enough work I guess.. Leg felt fine which was good news, slight twinge on shin on the WD although they were like jelly on the last rep. Breathing is still not 100% with the cyst (doc said it's just a small one on my tonsil which will clear but making my throat irritated) 

2:59 / 3:01 / 3:03 / 3:04 / 3:02  so happy with that! Maybe in better shape than I think...

WU / WD added in to make just over 6 miles 

Last hard run for Sunday and feeling good..

Nah I'll be fine to run tomorrow. Doc said tonight would have been ok but getting an open wound wet (I'd need to shower) could lead to problems so give it a day just to be safe. I'm super nervous about next week though! Will have a metal pin in the side of my head!

I was knocked down by two doberman on weston shore a while back so I am still weary but it's not been so bad. Better weather now though which will could become problematic. I have leaned towards going onto the track for some of the recent sessions though, mainly for pacing but also offers a clear area to do a session with no worries about others, watching the clock etc.

Do you plan to do them after the marathon? I may go watch the one this Wednesday as it's close, won't and couldn't run anyway as it's us to host. Would be good for racing into fitness and using as sessions for other events?

Just the 4 runs for me. Chomping.

Advised not to run after very minor surgery today

Was nothing serious but an injection and a wound to leave to heal and keep dry for 24 hours

Rest is probably fine at this stage anyway.. KM reps tomorrow. Rang the Physio today (NHS) to get an appointment with the niggle on Achilles / shin issue still going on. Luckily a cancellation Monday next week seems me fit in before my operation. So two weeks of strength exercises and zero running will help but feel a scan is needed as think they maybe underlying damage for a re occurance to occur

Always started to work on my next training phase between the operation and the island games in Jersey in June giving myself 1 week just easy / steady running before sessions. Focus will be building the mileage properly but sessions will be of the larger rep type such as 2m and some tempos.

Also the RR10 series I did last year starts this Wednesday, looking at fitness and the Op I will probably target the last 6 only

So close indeed, I went into the bookies Saturday and asked if they are taking bets. Feels likes it's "always tomorrow"

The grassy loop is by peartree green behind the park, about .9m round long way round with a short sharp hill and a slight incline round one way, there's inter connecting paths for opportunities to do 400m reps or so, generally clear too. A little harder to get some speed up with some cornering but I'm hoping some off road tempos will be a real strength builder over the summer.

There's better places I can do interval work now though. Mainly Weston shore

I'm really hoping I can run well you no doubtadely deserve a great run too!

Cheers mate!

Ran the course today starting from the "start line" a few wrong turns but covered the proper route, minor turn backs and had to run on the road at times but generally ok, seems an ok course and progressed things feeling good. No shin niggle, slight Achilles groan. Generally ok

6.22m @6:08s so just over 38 mins for 10km

Sore throat and the cyst is back which explains things, can see it again so being very careful and lots of water.

Having minor surgery at clinic tomorrow 5pm shouldn't stop me running tomorrow PM afterwards, working 7-4
