Nice running Inspired Runner! well done everybody.
Me: 8M into work, in 8.10m/M. Blustery!
10.5 miles last night in the dark: round the Marina, up the beach to the Coastguards' and by quiet roads home through Blundellsands & Crosby. Settled well into a comfortable pace & maintained it.
Regulation 5 miles this morning up to the Baths and home via Crosby & Brighton-le-Sands - legs were a tad trashed after last night but 'twas only 9 hours later!
Just did a 9K progression run, first time I've properly done a progression run. I've got a 10K on Sunday and I tend to go off too hard, so I wanted to try and work on pacing myself a little early on. I far preferred the feeling of finishing hard and pushing myself more on the hills than being tired after about 4K and feeling I was struggling around the rest. Feel great afterwards.
Did encounter one small problem as 9 horses had escaped their field half way round and decided it would be nice to stand on the pavement and in the road. Had to join a queue of cars crawling round the side of them in the end. According to the police they do it all the time!
Wow, what a session Inspired! Well done
Me: 6.5M on the South Downs Way, climbing up Beacon Hill and Old Winchester Hill. Good fun.
6.5 miles last night at 9mm pace.
My last run - today at about 2pm. Complete rubbish. I managed a bit over 5k, but had to take a ...snarl...walkbreak...inbetween (haven't had to do that for ages!)
It's got to be down to one, or a combination of the following:
- First run back after a few days out with minor back trouble.
- Earlier in the day than usual (still only 19 degrees though).
- Water instead of Powerade.
- or no gym session beforehand (that's the one my money's on). Either way, I hope it picks up next time...
Edit: @Inspired: I also had toast a short while before I left - maybe that put a spanner in the works as well.
Powerful run, iR - keep it going!
5 miles early doors around Crosby Coastal Park - either a tad off form or I pushed on - fair tuckered out at the end
alib: well done on your PB at the GNR. Makes all the training worth while when PB's happen.
Still no running for me due to injury, but did manage 2 hours in the pool earlier. With all the time I am spending in the pool at the moment I should be reasonable at swimming by the time I am ready to run again.
4.25M Easy/Steady this morning
Not a great week running wise last week.
