Moraghan Training - Stevie G

Posted: Yesterday at 09:21

Good stuff Dean, Iron and Bus - Good to get some training in the nice weather before it all goes tits up.

Dean - kicking off tomorrow with a 1500 instead of a 5k I think at Bedford, probably be a howling gale as per usual. I'll lay down a marker for you - can imagine it will take you long . Just hoping that as I have now done 6 track sessions (as compared to none all of last season!) my first will be ok-ish.

Seen PP's 3 hour pacer stuff. Rather him than me! Hope the rain doesn't drag him down on Sunday

Ah? The old curse of the last rep. Loads of more effort for the same time as the last one, or slightly faster at best

Dachs - keep at it kid, you'll be fine - great advice from Dean too regarding these sessions.

Scott - running non scoring for Bedford at SAL on saturday. Was going to do the 5000m but after all these 400 reps it's probably better to go for a 1500 instead. Hopefully I can kick off with sub 4.15 - after starting with 4.25 last year!

Dean - don't taunt the old boy now. you know what these marathon runners are like  Actually I had put PP on ignore somehow - definitely didn't mean to LOL

SG- There is a one line track there (on the grass behind the old Vauxhall sports club - now 'Venue 360')  the summer, but as they have been on that grass for about 8 years now,he knows the distances like the back of his hand. Generally the grass is pretty short.

Come on Bus - spill the beans on the reps ...gentle 12 today commuter stylee!

Good stuff Dean, that's great feeling sick also shows good form. Good sessions elsewhere too from SS and Matt again, very sharp!

I'm with Dachs as a very bad sleeper, generally only from 11.30-5.30. At the end of the day it is a bit dull, but I know I should have more, really need to sort it out tbh.

Anyways, tonight was 8x800 on the grass at Luton, with about 1.40 recovery and annoying headwind in the last 300 ! Found the start quite tough with a breathy 2.31. Found a bit of form with a 2.30,2.28,2.28,2.28, 2.27,2.26,2.22. One of those where times feel ok but you feel a bit laboured.

Stevie - Ive run that Steve Way loop - its on grass in the grounds of the JP Morgan building. As you drive into Bmth through the main route in, its on the left - big glass thing that  looks like a grandstand!

Very dull loop!

Good stuff Matt - the 800 session sounded really good - and some good mileage too!

I'm doing Berlin in September. As it will be my 2nd (and last marathon) i'm not changing my summer training too much apart from long runs, a progressive LSR and some long reps. If it doesn't work - won't be doing another so it's not a problem.

Love all the xc long runs, especially as it takes some pressure off the legs with the impact etc. Good work SS again! Went to the new Luton parkrun in Wardown pk on saturday morning. Glen, from LBAC helps to set up all the parkruns around us - Aylesbury, Tring we went down and the missus tried it out. I ran back to LB and took 1.31. It was 14 miles so came out at 6.30's I think - wind was behimd me generally so that helped.

Sunday we had an LBAC track afternoon with all the kids too - there are about 80 or so now! did a 15 x 400 session, 3 sets of 5, 90 secs recovery off 3 mins. Felt pretty good and averaged 68/68 in lane 2 - did start a little post the start line. Little more recovery helped alot.

Led to discussions about what feel better - track then LSR the day after, or LSR then track the day after? hmm..

SS - Seemed easier after the 20 x 400 2 weeks ago (there is a method there i suppose!!)..and a bit more recovery helped.Bus - Calm down .

Watched the Regents pk video - my reps I did on Weds start from the fountain on 43 seconds in! the view before (42 secs) is the return 500m up to the fountain, which is a bitch..if anyones interested

Ha ha. Don't you listen to him Andrew, you know ultras are for the psychos among us. Well actually i suppose they are the people most suited to running!

Good session SS, love the 30x 200, sorts you out.

Tonight we had 16 x 400, this time off 80 secs. Problem was bit of the track were being sprayed so we had about 120m around the top bend in lane 2, which was a bit of a bugger. Plus more traffic with kids back.

Did one 71, one 70, 12 x 69, and the last 2 68 and 68, so pretty happy with that, perhaps could take a sec off with a proper track. Hey ho.
