Moraghan Training - Stevie G

Evening all,

I've missed a lot by the looks of it. Shoulder is sorted now and I'm off the silly pain killers. I ran a relay race at the Welsh Castles relay. I tried to wriggle out of it but we didn't have a team if I didn't run.

Having not run in 6 days smashing 9.5 miles was less than ideal. However... I did the business and ran 9.5 miles in just over 58 mins and came 7th (keeping my 100% top 10 record). Sunday I had a rest and Monday I couldn't walk straight as I really did annihilate myself. Never had legs like it after a race!

Jogged 3-4 miles each day this week to ease in. Just easy running next week too.

Hope we're all doing great - promise I'll keep up with the thread this week!

Evening gents,

Bit quiet from me as I have a rotator cuff injury in my shoulder. Very painful, but I've been on some groovy painkillers by the name of Zapain for 4 days and I'm pretty sure I can now time travel! Ha ha!

Doctor said it is probably an overuse injury caused by running too much after a week off - so a week off, then down the dosage until it's worked out of my system and pray the pain is gone.

I'm 31 and everything seems tough!

Bad luck Dean, running ill is a nightmare but our enthusiasm often gets the better of us. I was in bed for a week after I did that 10K pot hunt! Hopefully you'll be fit for Trafford next week.

Watched Christleton 5K on Friday. As mentioned Rob ran a blinder, put himself on the line and dug in. 92% WAVA is unreal! Was a great night, with some inspiring running. Our lad ran 14:45 for 3rd which was exciting to see.

Matt, nice pot hunt today. I nice was to spend a bank holiday!

I've had 6 days off, been thinking hard and looking into different training ideas. I'm going to have a go at the Daniels' running formula approach. Very good read. I'm going to focus on 5/10K training and race lots of 1500 and 3000 races to keep sharp and have a bit of fun. Nice to feel settled and finally have a bit of direction. Just mean the mara might have to wait. The HM and shorter bucket list needs some more work!

Deanooooooo sub 2 get in there! So early in the season too! You must be sharp as an axe already! Don't worry about Christleton, you can always do Cappenhurst later which is quick or do a track 5K.

Nice report Bus, strong running. You often mention your decent are tricky and you lose places. Is there a way to improve this? I can't imagine running downhill is a pleasurable training session!

Matt, back in the game! Just as well you didn't;t slog out that 10K till the end (and end up crippled like me!).  You can stay out of the fells a while longer yet mate.

Lots of good training too, some seriously good running here at the moment.

I'm enjoying a 5 day break to rest and then next week I'll start easy running for a week. I might even have a focused training plan for once!  A autumn marathon is looking less and less likely. The 10/5K bucket list need some work first.

Only a short jog yesterday and had a chat with a local runner who's been there and done it at a high level. Gave me a bit to think about training wise. Lack of specificity, not peaking at the right time, training in stages or cycles, fulfilling short distance goals before hitting a marathon.

I've entered a track 10K in early September which seems a perfect long term target, with some 1500, 3K and 5K fun along the way.

Anyway words of wisdom appreciated! I'm going to race Christleton at the weekend, but may not wear a watch and just race it.

38:32 today in Manchester, got to 5K in 18:24 a very broken man and already nearly at a stand still. So hot I thought my head was going to burst, very nearly binned it as I got really dizzy a few times and my breathing got a bit frantic.

Might have all next week off. I think I'm using all my effort to train and then the tank is empty. I dunno.

Rob, really pleased for you and it's great to see you smashing it and the injuries are truly in the past.

Well done to Dachs and Phil for toughing it out in the heat and fairing better than me and Matt! Nice to meet you today mate!

Nice win Dean! I feel for you all racing in the wind today, a thankless task. Congrats to the sprog who has inherited your sporting prowess! You seen the Manchester Mile event at Sports City? It's July 17th and has an elite race put on by the company that organise the great run events. Should be a decent craic!

Chin up Dachs, just need a few weeks of track sessions to get those legs spinning nicely again.

Bus, Phil, nice runs boys. Bus I can safely say 5:30 opening miles end in tears! So a 5:45 is most sensible. Just that pesky wind spoiling things. I'm sure Phil would have gone under 30 had it been better weather.

Johnas, conditions looked horrific last night on the webcast. Especially for the earlier races. The elite race was great viewing, seeing Jonny Mellor kick and work his way back only for Vernon to drop the hammer. He'd have run 27 if it had been good conditions. That wind was worth a lot of time over 10K.

I'm doing the Tafford 10K festival, would you say it's enjoyable Johnas?

9.6 miles today. Nice and easy. Track session tomorrow which fits nicely to give extra recovery time. This wind best go by a weeks time.

Johnas, how will I recognise you now without the beard?! Good luck tonight dude, just tick those Ks off and get into a nice groove.

Dean, that speed session...  Great work.

Taper wise, I always do well of a rest on the penultimate day. LIke Ric says, the body needs to be in 'hard work' mode.

24 min tempo today in 6:08 average, was very windy but the effort was right. .
