Martin - Do you find the ice baths help? I used to use them but I got fed up with the injustice of doing all the work and then having to sit in freezing cold water for 20 minutes.
So I ditched them and in favour of the relief of a hot shower. Haven't had any problems with DOMS although that may just be because I've got more used to the long runs over the years.
Tim - awesome report as always! So glad to hear you are firmly back in the game now. 16 miles at that pace is brilliant. I just wish you's show a bit more emotion instead of glossing over it like it was no big deal
Steve asked me if I fancied going up to Palace on Tuesday for intervals. Would be great if you could make one of the sessions once you and Sam feel it's safe to engage the afterburners again.
Re. the km thing - I had enough to worry about without fanning around with another measurement system. I just stuck with the Garmin in miles and ignored the km signs.
My first 20 at the weekend in 2:38. Steady 8mm then picked it up to 7:30 pace for the last 4. Couldn't manage MP though. Still off the pace for sub 3 but things are improving.
Any news on Spitfire?
I did go for the ice baths for a while also, I think they must help, given so many professionals use them, but I just cannot be bothered with the hassle now.
I also thought I under egged the emotion on my TD report, must try harder next time. I think 7 weeks of frustration came out on Saturday.
And a magnificent 20 miles there, you must have felt good after it? Spitfire is looking unlikely but I will check the schedule to see if CP track is on the cards.
How was the Rugby received in the household this weekend?
reikirabbit I agree with you about internet shopping, changed the way of shopping for the better but there are still things which are so frustrating, such as having to sign for things. What is moxa by the way? And how is the knee today, I hope it is getting better?
PWC It would be great to say hello to anyone doing F20 on Sunday, whats your thoughts for your pacing?
Andrea I might have been on cloud 9 on Saturday and maybe a tad over emotional myself. How was your LSR on Sunday too? Double weekend long running is impressive?
Sean Well done on your long run. I remain impressed by anyone doing their LSR on a Monday, what is your HM pace btw?
