I returned to eventing last Sunday at the Mablethorpe HM. Very hot for October, indeed, for any month, peaking at 80 deg. F Frequent water stations helped me survive and I'm quite pleased with 1:51.
Yesterday: slow 3 miles of recovery
Today: not quite so slow - 4 miles around the coastal park. Windy weather!!
My last run was a very gentle 20 min this morning. Physio says I've got a spot of ITB trouble. So, we're icing, poking, stretching and - gently - easing back into some activity. I'm excited about the last bit!
A 6M yes SIx Miles Fartlek. Good session.
'Flew', not had such a good session in ages. Well chuffed
10 miles yesterday with wind, rain, hailstone and then sunshine. My legs are a bit sore this morning.
Next run is a race on Sunday then an easy week next week as Half Marathon 16th October.
Morning people. Thanks for the encouragement.
25min this morning. ITB is heading in the right direction.
5.2M in 38:45. First proper run, really after ITB problems. What a joy to be out there doing it! Hope Solent Runner and JT are getting better soon.....
Good to read you're on the mend, Dutch Left it late last night [8pm] but enjoyed 4.9 miles around Crosby & Blundellsands, avoiding the breeze.
Echo stress test appointment in 10 days - hopefully, I'll find out that my breathing/chest trouble in August is behind me.
Yesterday 4M easy/steady
Today 6.3M more feisty over hilly terrain. Pushed it a bit and ended up doing something like 7:30m/M. leg still feels fine but will rest tomorrow and see how we are on Wed.
Nice to see everyone hard at it, I'm keeping my fingers crossed but my hamstring and calf woes seem to be behind me.
Friday 5km @ 6min pace then yesterday 10km @ 6min pace
Sorry to here of your woes Dutch and JT, I know SR has been out for a while here hope we all fighting fit soon.
Still injury worried for me. Hope to start cross training in 3 weeks, then gentle running in 4 weeks. Fingers crossed my groin strain has finally healed.
Keep up the good running everybody.
Great stuff Compo! You must be really pleased.
Well done Sarah! Are you aiming for a 10M or 1/2M'ton race some time soon?
Me: 8M into work, first time in a long time, well under 8m/M. Recovery going pretty well.
Well done Compo! I am thinking about a marathon next April. I wouldnt have usually even considered it but it is a new one that is local so I might up my miles between now and Christmas then see how I feel about it then. I quite like the HM distance really!
Dutch, you must be on the mend if you are starting the commute runs again, a good pace as well.
7 easy miles last night with the club. Rest today then a short one on Thursday before Sundays HM. I would love to beat my GNR PB from last month but we will see.
I'd say you must be looking good for a pb Alib? You've been quite consistent in the last few months. Looking forward to hear you'll get on!
Me: 9.5M on the Monarch's Way. Another off road trail snaking across the south downs. Lovely. Took it easy, and ITB still doing fine. Lovely morning too.
