5.25M Fartlek Hard.
Dry, mild and windless. So great conditions for running
7 miles today in about 1 hour so a steady pace.
6.84 miles with 3 miles at my target HM pace.
Just checked the Garmin reports and 37 miles for this week. I think it must be a record for me! Only two more runs left before my holiday. 13 miles on Sunday and a short (ish) early morning one on Tuesday.
Hi, shirelle All good mileage!
Another 5 miles up the prom and back through Crosby at 7am. Going to cut back for the next few days to give grazed/bruised knee a change to heal The Streak is now at 201 days!!
13 miles for me this morning. Average of 9:20 mm with 2 miles cross country.
Back from hols.
Just 4 runs in the two weeks in the blistering heat and searing humidity. Before that I had a week basically off due to wasps stings (don't ask! I do react badly to them).
Did 19M today back in Hampshire but it was a real struggle. Have lost a bit of edge in the last 3 weeks and hope to retain it soon. However, so happens that I'm off to the Far East again in 11 days, for a week. Try and do a bit more between now and then but life seems to conspire against committed training at the moment.
That's a bit worrying as have M'ton on late Sept.
Good to see Alib and others doing well. Welcome Shirelle! You'll get faster, just stay at it! I'm thinking the opposite: how little it takes to get slower!
nice to be back
Welcome back, Dutch - shouldn't take too long to put the edge back on your running.
This morning, I headed off up the beach and over the sandhills to the R. Alt estuary nr Hightown on Merseyside, passing a submerged forest that is nearly 5,000 years old. Turned at the Alt & came back on beach & trail. Ran out of steam in the last 10 minutes but the mashed knee held up.
Welcome back Dutch. You did really well to do 19 miles after 3 weeks of doing so much less. Did you find that you were a lot slower than usual?
I will be on holdiay myself after Tuesday evening and am starting to really worry about losing fitness. I will only be back for 9 days then it's the GNR! I have 13 miles planned on the day after I get back so I guess it will be a struggle. I need to try and not put on too much weight! I have packed my trainers but it is still 26 degrees in the early mornings in Cyprus at the moment so Im not sure if I can run in that heat but I will try.
Last run for me is very early on Tuesday morning.
Shirelle: Welcome. Forgot to say that before.
5.5M Fartlek for me today. hard. Thats why I did it though
SR: Hope you get back soon. Recover well.
5M Easy/Steady for me this morning. Not bad at all.
SR: Sorry to hear that you are injured. Hope you recover quickly.
6 miles for me this morning. I was planning on 8 but my achillies felt sore so cut it short. Holiday for two weeks tomorrow and I am really looking forward to the rest. I may run a little but it wont be far if I do.
Good to hear from you SR! Very sorry to hear about your troubles.
Just came back from a 3M with a knee niggle. Sundays LSR really hasnt done me any good and nor has the 3 week slump. Must see if it goes away by itself....
Have a great holiday Alib! You've really upped the mileage so 2 weeks of cutting back is not bad. I would go for regular short runs, though and inject a bit of pace every now and then to keep you sharp...
Thanks Dutch, Thats what I was thinking too.
I hope that your knee is ok and nothing serious, Just some last minute packing then we will be on our way to the airport for an overnight stay.
Thanks everyone for your kind comments, hope your knee niggle comes to nothing Dutch, and enjoy your holiday Alib.
Well had my 2 miles on the treadmill today at 5 MPH, feels good to do something, but just over so soon. Did hit the pool for a 2 hour swim, half hour front crawl, half hour breast stroke, half hour front crawl, then another half hour breast stroke, this I did enjoy though the pool does get busy, think it will just keep me ticking over until groin strains improves. Also had half hour in the sauna at the end, now that was nice.
