Right – had a good read back over the last few days.
Enjoyed your HM race report GD – well done on that PB! That 1:50 wasn’t far off at all, give it good
conditions and the planets align up and you will grab that. Good placing too for both of you. Shame about your work situation and I hope
you get that week off, sounds like you need it.
Good that tablets and computers don’t’ shout back (or I would be often
be in a loud argument).
Welcome to Chaznoid should you drop back in. Give the outdoor running a go but as Cal says
take it easy with run-walk initially.
Chasing cyclists uphill is fun JB. At some point they run out of gears and struggle. I remember a disgruntled one on an mtb riding
a stretch I was doing a hill race on (up to 22 % climbs in parts). He was not amused when I was over the moon to
overtake him (on a flatter stretch). I do get envious of them when you both get
to the top though and all they have to do is freewheel back off down! Well done on your 43rd anniversary
– that is a long time! You are running
some good times at the moment (3 miles / 4 miles). Hope your Xmas plans aren’t
too wrecked by the rising virus figures.
Well done on the 10k/5k combination Cal. Good attitude to the races and the results. Careful with those oats – (I hope the right
ones this time ). Fingers crossed that
your HM takes place at the weekend. That
must have been a decent sized traffic island you got stuck on if it allowed for
some agitated to-ing and fro-ing.
Out with just one guy from my Tuesday group yesterday
evening, we had a nice Corona-rant. Think
we both needed to let off some steam.
For me easy pace, for him less so, so I was quiet on the uphills to give
him a chance to get enough breath in. We
were lucky with the rain until the last 5 minutes of the run.
Fog today – should have worn my fancy flashing red lights
vest I suppose though there was little traffic around but that which was
probably wouldn’t have been expecting a runner out. I was wearing a standard hi-viz and a headtorch
but with around 30m max in the darkening soup…
Mentally I felt like a bit of hard work and did some hill reps on a local
hill – around 230m in length with 28 metres of climbing according to the
segment I have set up. Legs weren’t
really interested but I told them to get on with it and did 8 reps. I’ve done better hill sessions but the last
few days have left me a bit drained so I was happy enough. Nearly 300m of climbing altogether in 5.x miles.
