Morning - easy day ahead of NF tomorrow, 3 miles maybe with some strides thrown in to keep the legs moving. I'll be in a red top with orange shorts (colour co-ordination never my strong point), and will look out for TT and FIN. Think I'm #504.
Lyric - easy!
Hiyah, back again !
Brkmyre- congrats on the Uni assignment, always good to nail them
AF ... what is this 13 slices of toast thingy ?
Fingers & Hilly .... hope the colds are getting better - and super Chippenham result Hilly
Scobos - what a fabbo mega hill run you did, awesome
DD - 1 MV50 in a cracking time and good PB, 35 C is mighty hot for that
Tipp Top - you must be v pleased with the improvement, impressive stats.
Odd week for me - did shorter threshold session on Tue then big intervals in Thur (2 sets of 3 x 1 mile at 10k pace with 60 sec recoveries ... on tready at 1 deg incline at 10.5 mph) before more of a rest yesterday.
This morning was 20 min warm up then 3 x 10 min Kenyan hills with 2 min recoveries and 10 min warm down. It was meant to be 4 but my head and body were not in the game and I had to get back to home to catch my brother.
All a bit of an upheaval personally at present - my father has shifted in short order from being mobile to being bed bound as this disease takes its course. So am sorting things out at his house today. Time will tell if it is a dip to a new lower plateau or part of a quicker slide.
DM: best wishes for your dad
what:7m steadyWhy: schedule
Train well all
Lyrics, only slightly given away. That makes 2 days consecutive for me, some kind of record.
DM: Tough times, thoughts are with your Dad and his family (that includes you).
Personally, my stomach is off form at present. It's ironic that this is supposed to be peak mileage week as well. Abingdon could be a question of making withdrawals from the bank beyond the overdraft limit unless I'm lucky. Pacing will be key.
Have a good weekend.
DM sorry to hear about your dad.
Paul- 3 0clock in the morning is often cold, its glorious now tho.
What 5m easy 40mins
Why Race tomorrow
Rest- mon 8th
Lyrics - think so. Have a great day & enjoy the weather!
TippTop. Interesting - if you can find the tables or a link, let me know as I'm interested as I'm probably the world's most in-efficient runner! The best description of a VO2Max test I've come across is it's probably the best indicator of current ability and not the actual VO2Max.
Trinni: It must be a tough call for you giving up the delights of Branston, Frank Coopers, Imperial Leather, etc. for the hardships of tropical beaches, excellent climate, laid-back lifestyle etc. Suprising, but excellent lyrics choice! Takes me back to when I had my mohican.
DM: The final day of my pre-mara carbo loading regime begins with 13 slices of toast. Hope your dad's just a minor dip.
Best of luck to FIN, TT and Dustin at NF. May the wind be behind you all the way.
Have a good one - enjoy the weather whilst it lasts.
DM - Sorry to here about your dad, Take care
What: 90 minutes (9.47 miles) @ 9:32 paceWhy: Medium long run @ 20 secs a mile quicker than a normal long runLast Hard: Today could count but not that badWell the plan was to do it at 9:30 pace so i was close HR 148 avg nice day out lovely and warm
(((DM))) hope you and your Dad are doing ok.
Healing vibes to those with colds etc and a large 'bu99er off' to Eric the SF.
What: short bike including 5 x half mile hill climbs (with b/f) + 60 steady runWhy: it's SaturdayLast hard: yesterday, 200m repeats in the poolLast rest: 19 August but I do believe I have one coming tomorrow!
Good runnings all.
DMSorry to hear about you Dad.
What: 10+ miles with 4 big hillsWhy: Saturday scheduleLast hard: 1 dayLast rest: 2 daysLyrics: Yes!!!!!!!
Other family news is that no.2 son has decided to give up gymnastics. He's having a go at athletics - high jump last week, pole vault next - shame not to use all that core strength! I'm going to watch his attempt at learning pole vault, sounds like a good spectator moment...
DM - My thoughts are with you and your family at this tough time.
It's all about food and water for me today! I was going to run this morning, just something light before tomorrow but woke late and still have remenants (sp?) of this cold hanging around so figured rest was better than anything else. Travelled south today looking forward to the race tomorrow. Will keep an eye out for TT and Dustin. What time are you guys getting down there? I don't want to get stuck behind a pony trek and miss the start so was thinking about earlier rather than later.
Stevie G - Trini lives over the pond so is always "Up" early, not so sure about PF - if that was a d&d then you are right, we're approaching Gobi standards for early running...
What: Not a lotWhy: New Forest Mara tomorrowLast Hard: This whole week hasn't been easy with this coldLast Rest: today
Happy days y'all!
Its Parsnips I miss! Branston etc all available ... sometimes. Clotted cream never which for a dairy farmers son is hard to take. Still no tax!
