At what rate do you lose your fitness levels?

Posted: 27/08/2014 at 13:43

Rule of thumb by Alex Stanton- Paula Radders and my missus' coach at Bedford was....Two weeks just about OK, but then you lose two weeks fitness for every other week after that.

I had three days off and one hangover. I felt like a complete beginner again on the 5th day  Mind you, like Phil, I am an old V40....

Adidas Boost Trainers, anyone had a run in a pair yet?

Posted: 26/08/2014 at 13:28

Jury out so far - bought some Supernova Glide 'boost' and they are OK, but i'm worried they feel too squishy and i'm having to pull my feet up off the floor too much, I prefer the feel of Adiprene tbh.

A nice slice of adiprene in the heel would give it a bit more bounce. I suppose I loike the feel of the road a bit, rather than bouncing on air...

What is your parkrun strategy?

Fun Runs overpriced?

Posted: 22/08/2014 at 17:31

Oh organisers know that running is a complete cash cow, so away from many of the club organised ones, it's a minefield!

Sadly, many will pay £30 odd quid for a 5k and have some dye thrown at you, etc etc..more fool them eh..but the more people pay, the prices will go up and up.

It's a jungle out there

Cheers Birkmyre, god 10k track is a real drudge. Have I read about you some where? I can't even remember where either...bit vague!

Might be another Birkmyre...

Warm up essential in park runs due to the time of day and as they at the end of a working week.

I reckon you can extend your usual warm up time, or even double it, as long as it's steady. Perhaps jog down to where it is - even if it's 3/4/5 miles away? I think many people are genuinely suprised what a proper warm up can do, as long as you finish it perhaps 30 mins before the start?

Toilet, few fast strides, then good to go

Oh HAD to pop in and say hi after seeing the lyrics - and bugger me it was on the Ipod this morning running to work! - not suprised the most famous line of this song wasn't used, too much of a give away....It actually works quite well with 7.5m/mileing..

Alawys liked it since it was on the 'Pickfords Travel - Summer Sun 88' cassette freebie LOL

Quiet run today - Herne hill open 10,000m tomorrow, which i'm not looking forward too!

Hope you are all well

Hi Bolt - yep the 5 x 1 mile as an interval session, perhaps with 2 mins recovery? if you have gone too quick on the miles then you'll know and adapt for the next time..
