@ Swittle & Birkmyre...... its nice to be back out, thanks
3km warm up, 18mins
5km pushing a little harder, 23mins
3km warm down,19mins
All feeling good so far.
Dutch, I hope that your knee isnt anything too serious and it clears up soon.
12 miles this morning after arriving back very late last night. I had to stop at about mile 9 at the newsagents for water as I felt so dehydrated. It's only about 10 degrees here but I really really needed it. The average pace was 9.29 mm so not too bad but I just felt so tired. Anyway it's done and no more long runs until the GNR now.
I did do 5 short runs while I was away but it was too hot to run far or very fast (even at 6.30am).
6.7 miles in 0:53:27 - quite a quick one for me
Longer medium paced run tomorrow
Last nights little foray out in the New Forest
2.5 km in 17:30 (warm up)
10 km in 51:38 @ 90% effort http://www.endomondo.com/workouts/mr8OpAuHyFM
2.8 km 1n 18:34 (warm down)
Actually 50 mins would have been 90% effort but I slowed down a touch twice to look at the deer, that got to add up to 1:38 surely
Felt good, might venture out this evening just to stretch the legs.
20.79 miles in 2hr56min yesterday. Very achy legs today. Can't wait till I don't have to do these LSR's anymore (well, for a while anyway).
Had all sorts of weather, drizzle, hard rain, plenty of wind (both types), and hot sun. Took water with me this time (I haven't before - big mistake) - and definately helped although pain to carry.
I know I don't post much on here but I've become a little bit addicted to this website, and all that surround running altogether - plus pretty quiet at work at the moment!
Hello people! Lots of activity here which is good to see.
I'm back from my travels.Did manage 3 runs in sunny Seoul, 5k steady, 11k with 5k picked up and 7k tempo, which felt good. Injury trouble seems behind me, but have given up on New Forest M'ton. After 6 weeks of struggling and inconsistency, I'm looking forward to stepping up the training.
Nice to be back!
Glad to hear that all is well again Dutch. It's a shame about the Marathon but there will be others.
Park run for me this morning and only managed a 24.01 which is a minute slower than normal but with holidays and no faster paced running for a month it was to be expected. I didnt push too hard so I wasnt disappointed.
This week will be a quite easy week as I dont want to be tired at all for the GNR next week. I think I will run Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday and give myself two days rest.
12.5M, undulating, blustery - felt rusty but also pleased to get in a longer run. First one for many weeks. Just over 8m/M which I'm happy with.
