Vicky - sounds like you are doing 3 medium / hard days in a row! Don't overdo it - or you'll be consigned to "the other thread".



But yes agreed that sometimes my weeks aren't laid out ideally ... life just gets in the way sometimes! Please forgive me.

13miles last night ... god damn that wind! More on the spot running .... kept training to tell myself it was good training but it def felt like a 20miler by the end rather than what it was.

Recovery 7miles this morning (out the door 5:20 ... still no Tom13!) .... and just realised I forgot to do my strides (well done morning brain!)! Will slot them into a recovery run later in the week.

The OH is having reconstructive surgery on his ACL today so hanging out at some fancy pants hospital with him this eve.

I despise DIY but the OH never gets around to doing it and we've got loads of paintings/mirrors/curtain rails that need hanging so I'm gonna have to get my man skills out. Mennania I shall be coming to you for advice!

Cor blimey - not logging in at the weekend means a lot of brainburn trying to follow this on Monday!!

Friday - awful finish to work so had a good angry 5miles on the treadmill then yoga to calm me down again

Saturday - 11miles with 6 at 'LT'. I'm still slow (approaching my previous HM pace) but there were points where I was running on the spot against the wind and the effort level felt correct for the 6miles so was happy enough. Am quietly confident that the pace will come over the next month

Sunday - sluggish 14 miles MLR, also had dog troubles with this small yapping thing being small and yappy at me


Tonight, just going to do another MLR of 13miles and legs are a bit pooped.

I was still in nappies at 26.

... but enough about your private life!

I like this thread today, I feel like a wee nipper at the tender age of 33. Started taking running more seriously about 5 years ago. Just got addicted to races. And cutting out (the majority of) smoking made .... well a somewhat obvious difference.

I vote Andrew does a weekly summary as that was fantastic and I find it hard to keep up with this thread!

Morning all!

Did my 20miler last night .... realised in the last four miles that it was certainly too close to my last long run (21.5miles 3 days before) as my body def started to feel like it was breaking down ... but it was character building and completed!

Def having a rest day today.

I don't mind a MLR ... but probs because I generally do my LR after work as well so its generally the only run I do that gets me home by 8pm (as the recovery runs are done with weights and yoga tagged on).

My nemesis is LRs with marathon pace. Don't think I have ever successfully completed one of these with the appropriate MP distance and then managed to finish my LR.

Still quite achy today despite having a recovery Monday and then a double session recovery day yest. Will try to do 20miles but if I need to turn it into my MLR 14 I will.

10 w  5@ LT tonight and I am going to treat myself by running without the backpack


Haha - know what you mean. I generally surprise myself in races by doing better than expected and I put a lot of it down to training with a rucksack.

Morning! Have my first double session today .... I'm no Tom13 but out the door at 5:20 for an extremely pleasant 6miles (which is good as yesterdays recovery 5miles was pretty uncomfortable after sundays LR). Forgot how nice morning running can be ... once you are out of bed.

Only downside (other than all the admin .... I take my lunch + afternoon smoothie into work so yesterday had to be quite organised when taking into account evening kit as well) was that the better half didn't have be to get him out of bed ... so he's still there now. :P

This evening, weights, yoga and the other 4 miles.
