My #asics262 journey to Paris: Sub-3:30 Malcolm

Posted: 12/08/2014 at 22:32
Hey! So the summer holidays have really helped my training. Up to 33 miles last week so the Chester Metric should be ok! Feel like a part timer looking at the list above seeing as Mr P and McHilly are doing the full.

Went out on Sunday and decided to run without my iPod. Not sure if this made it more difficult but I struggled to break 8m/m. Was such hard work.... Does music really make such a difference?

Tried a new parkrun on Saturday at Heaton park and I am going to probably alternate between that and Bolton as there both great challenging courses. 16th overall but still having difficult breaking 21 mins at the moment. This weekend I am sure I can break it....

Hope your injury is doing better Reiki. It sounds awful. I hate cramp. Hope you're back to full fitness soon.

Went out with my club tonight. Session was led by a guy who used to be in the army. He loves hills and it nearly killed me. I felt like the dead sheep we ran passed at one point....

Hope everyone is enjoying their running/holidays at the moment?

Blimey that all sounds rather medical Reiki. Hope you're back feeling normal soon!

Fantastic race report Sarah. It can't have been fun running in those conditions and I really like the way you mention all the things you wish you could have been doing instead like relaxing and drinking or jumping in the sea. Sometimes the only way I can get around a run is by thinking about what I'll eat once I finished

Talking of eating, Malcs do you still follow some of the ideas given to you by Ruth in your Asics 26.2 adventure? Only asking as somehow post London I've nearly put on a stone! Quite possibly my habit of putting chocolate milk on my cereal hasn't helped and may also explain the slower times of late!!!

Went to a race entering bonanza last night and have put myself into the following races

Chester metric marathon (26.2km/16.3 miles) on 5th October - maybe see you before or after this one Mr P?
Accrington 10k 26th October
Lancaster half marathon on 2nd November
Manchester marathon on 19th April

Wow. Great race report Malcs. Good running as well. Don't think it is something I could do, running 70km over 24 hours. Well done.

Currently on my school hols so hoping to use it to improve my running. A very steep hill session last night and 6x 1000m in the park this morning. Hoping to regain some form after my personal worst at the Bolton park run two weeks back....

Went to see some of the athletics at the Commonwealth Games on Monday. Was really good. It's great how the mix the disability sport with the others too.

Might enter some races later too. Did fancy Chester Mr P but think it could be too soon. Might do the metric marathon they're offering though.

Just want to wish those who are doing the TR24 this weekend. You are all nutters. Nearly as mad as some of the people I watched doing the Iron Man in Bolton last weekend. I really don't know how they do it. I mean a full marathon after everything else....

I managed to do my open water swim last Saturday. Finished 12th in my wave and 176th overall (out of over 2000) so it wasn't too bad. 26 minutes 45 seconds. Only off the winner by 7 minutes! Next year.....

Well done on your 10K PB Malcs and great run in Northumberland Sarah. It must have been difficult in the heat. I always meant to do that when I lived in the North East.

Are you ok Reiki? An RTC? Hope there wasn't much damage. Am finding it very difficult running at the moment. Forced myself out this evening and did 3x1000m in the park but it was all very slow. Usually manage 6:05 pace but tonight was more like 6:50. Was difficult.

Did the parkrun in Whitley Bay on Saturday but finished 17! Was way off pace. Not sure what happened but my pace really dropped off in the final mile. 

Did finally get down to the outdoor swim in Salford Quays last week and once I'd got over my fear of the the deep water I started to enjoy it. Managed to swim 1500m though my head was playing the Jaws theme all the way round.... 

My mile swim is on the 19th I let you know how it compares to running...

Wow another PB. Well done! You'll soon be beating my times. In fact you were a minute faster than me today... When is your next marathon? You should be able to smash your PB. 3:15 on the cards?

Have got a wetsuit for my swim but not sure if I'll fit in it at the moment as am currently having a chubby phase....

Will try and make it to the Hudds parkrun one day Hans. About to change over to the heaton park run.....

Blimey well done on your 10K Malcs - has the pb glow started to fade yet?

I am amazed that you've kept up the running since Paris. The sessions you've been doing look incredibly tough. I have let it slide since London, but hoping for a relaunch next week.

Hans C I don't know how you do the Huddersfield parkrun with a buggy. I teach in Huddersfield and some of my pupils do the parkrun. They tell me that the first part is just carnage. There are about 500 people who do it isn't there? It makes the times look even more impressive.

Have just put myself forward for a different challenge which is a mile swim in Salford Quays in 3 weeks time. I'll let you all know how I get on....

Very good times on your 1000m there Malcs. Dragged myself out today and did the same but I feel I've lost my runners mojo! If anyone finds it let me know. Think it could be the nice weather. It all seems to be too difficult when it is sunny.

Will probably give myself a week off and see how I feel then.

Sounds like an amazing road trip Chickadeee - any amusing tales? Good luck for the weekend Angela - take it you'll be doing the parkrun before your hair and make-up?

That gym sounds amazing RunBikeCat. I wish mine had a running track. Make sure your PT knows about your running as I think Angela mentioned before. So many of them are just focused on fat loss and toning that they don't have a strategy to deal with runners.
