Moraghan Training - Stevie G

It's sometimes to best to pick races - work out which are "A" or target races and then work training backwards from there and also then eliminating races that fall inbetween that don't fit .. You seem to always be in good shape Matt - I think it's important to keep that sharpness by racing before a big race so I hope you get a solid performance in before hand for that sub 32 at Leeds

My training plan has a 3km and 10km time trial pre race around 5 / 9 weeks I think???with a slight mini taper for each of them switching some sessions out, although I won't be able to do that 3km I will try for a all out parkrun and the 10km tune up happens to be the same day as first hamsphire league XC so may do that

Damn impressive running Matt.. 16 400s is some top session not even including the 200s!

I did 5 400s in middle of my session today and was well off 70s every one

So, session for me today was a little toughie! 10KM in volume. I worked from7:30-4:30 and after cycling home quick change drove to a good spot where I would do my session for about 5PM.. Best out and back flat area I could find rather than the usual undulating loop...

4 x 1KM (90s) 3:18 / 3:18 / 3:19 / 3:22

5 x 400m (60s) 76/78/78/76/77

4 x 1KM (90s) 3:16 / 3:20 / 3:18 / 3:22

I used the workout function and it worked well, it pushed me and left me nowhere to hide, it counted down the mileage and had just an average pace being shown so it was a good test of consistency and mental strength to run without knowing how much I had ran time wise or actual pace..

I actually came away feeling rather happy with the splits, last few were pretty hard although hip and shin held up I could feel the hip a tad, shin seemed fine so massage, icing etc has been helping ...

156 / 178 for HR data (AV/MAX) 

so my plan now for recording things is a 10 minute jog warm up + warm down (which is what I did today) without bothering for exact timings I will base it on 8m/m for 1.25m - it's likely to be a smidge more but that'll be what I count, unless its planned to do alot more

so 2.5m WU + WD then the session (with recoveries in between) came out at 

7.14m 48:41 for 6:49 average - The reps were basically ran at 5:05 (400s)+ 5:20 for the KM (m/m pace)

9.64m day total

Maybe give yourself a few days break from everything LSH whilst in France it may help..

Damn, I was invited to the relays too but am working...

May have to eat a dodgy batch of curry and blag the day off "sick"

What a thread day out that would be!!! And Samir the standard is normally very high with Lots of people targeting it... I was fortunate to run in a quality AFD team many years ago

Nice to see SG back in mix with some faster repetitions

So Samir long term aim is VLM 2015 And qualifying then sub 1:14? That would be great but also very achievable. As long as you keep that niggle you had at bay and remain healthy it's on..don't think Ealing HM will pose many problems course / weather wise

I am glad you still find some positives around the injury though! It's a slow steady process and takes it toll on the mind.. I have faith you have the passion to overcome this though LSH and the drive to push on afterwards!

Have you tried working on your calves post run? I did yesterday and found it helped as I do get a spot of acheyness in them.. And not sure what you so for a living but if you are sat down for a while / or like me sat at home a lot - try some light active stretching several times through the day to help those muscles stay loose

My session tonight will probably dictate the next 2 weeks.. If I have pain I'll probably have to call it a day and rest :/ doesn't look good when I can feel the shin splints sat eating my breakfast!

LSH, to be honest yes.. Right now I think well if my shin stays like this I won't be able to run, seeing myself have so much time out allready I do wonder if it's worth it.. BUT then I say to myself about the other injuries people have had, the other experiences people have had and say to myself why should I give up something I enjoy and are good at. I get self satisfaction from running and being injured is a small part of it.. It sucks but I don't want to give up if I haven't had a spell where I can say that was 100% me finished top of my ability..

I will keep working I guess - I always made a promise to myself after my ex left me and I didn't have Mia I'd make running my self replacement for time and to make my daughter proud of a physical achievement (hopefully) I didn't want to sit around out on weight and feel sorry for myself!

Ha - no Samir, I've been out since May ish time with an injury and only just gone back to training properly after 2 full months off (June/July) and then rebuilding, I lost all of my summer basically but hopefully I can comeback strong. Some recent sessions have been ok. I'd say 2-3 weeks full training for me that's been it for 4 months.. barely ran sub 17 5km since losing fitness but I did run a HM and I ran consistent times from 5km-HM so happy with how things are shaping up target race is 10m on 26th October

Ben Siwa is handy, he ran 23:30 at victory were my other rival Dan Boyle, not that he knows me, came out of nowhere on Hampshire running scene this year) ran a stormer 25:2x

10miles in 59 doesn't equate to a 65 min HM.. But I think a 74ish give or take is do able...

It would be no shame to be beaten by a women, it's about time my friend

Good too see you back! You need to get SG racing, maybe you're the man who can

Toyed with running into work later but thought I'd then have to run home either way and no point fathing with a bus at 10PM..

So after playing some PS4 a cup of tea and breakfast this time (rare) I ran...Shin splints left leg were painful to start but like before, they never got worse and eased off, I stopped once to massage the feeling out and it was fine, I didn't stop because it was too much or anything just curious to see what I would do.. 

Need to think about what to do regarding running now.... Maybe booking a massage will help as it did last time.. 

Once I did the run (last few miles round the grassy loo which felt fine) I was straight on the foam roller and self massaging the niggly areas of the foot and shin. No tenderness whilst doing that and the pain isn't there. A good sign but none the less its there when I ran. 

Cycle to work and home around 12:15PM

Run was a little short but do not mind given circumstances right now..

9.30m @7:11m/m HR 146/172

1:06:55 time on feet
