5 miles, make a change from recent 4.5s
Steady Run that felt okay. Mild again ! and no wind.
speedwork today, 6x800m on Southsea seafront, in 2.58, 2.58, 2.58, 2.54, 2.51 and 2.53. 90 seconds or thereabouts recovery. Pleased with the effort.
Morning people. LSR, 14.5M on the South Downs Way, QE Country Park to Harting Down and a bit beyond, for those who happen to know that area a bit. 2h11min. Not quick, but then, it is not an easy stretch!
Big shout to Solent Runner and anyone else with injuries.
5M Fartlek done Hard. Cold and frosty morning up here.
Grace: A good first post.
best ever time over 5miles - 33:03. Not had a watch for about a month as it had to go off for repair so not been timing. Also switched to minimalist running shoes about a month ago so been working on good form as well. Felt like it had all been coming together so when my watch came back today I was very pleased to see that I had smashed 44 seconds off my PB.
4M Easy run so it was a recovery run. No frost, dry and no wind either.
Not a bad morning for running.
Grace: I used to run 800m/1500ms years a go and still enjoy my Fartlek Sessions albeit at a slower pace than back then. Think my efforts now are what my recovery was back in 1987ish
What was a planned 12 mile run turned into 15 miles! My legs were tight so the last 2-3 miles were a bit of a struggle.
some good running going here at the moment!
Me: speed session, 5x1km in 3.38, 3.33, 3.38, 3.38, 3.34 and 3.38. Went exactly right, I think!
5M Fartlek on a moonlight morning.Hard.
4M easy on a dry, windy morning.
To start with my legs heavy from yesterdays Fartlek, but eaeed through it.
5.25 miles this morning, and disappointingly slow, which may have been due to red wine consumed last night, or may be not!
I sprained my ankle badly back in March, which stopped me from running for a couple of months, and I had hoped to be back to my previous fitness levels by now, but I'm not. I'm currently doing 2 mid-week runs of around 5 - 5.25 miles and a weekend run of 8 - 10 miles. Before the injury I was doing tempo and fartlek runs and I was increasing my speed nicely, but for some reason I've been shying away from it recently.
Having just found RW and the forums, I'm hoping this will kickstart an improvement in my performance!
