Wonder if anyone beats me this time
What : Really Long Run (30/40M)Why : Last one before Ridgeway
Hope you all have a great day.
No denying it Joe, that really is a long run. Have a guddun.
Classic lyrics, though impossible to run along to.
Happy Sundays All.
Good morning people!
Good grief Joe - I think I would die if I ran that far
Thanks to everyone who welcomed me to this thread...it looked friendly so I thought i'd dive in and I was right I'm a bit of a running newby - I'm doing the Great South Run in October as my first ever race and i think i've caught the bug now!!
What - 10km later on this afternoon
Why? To make sure it wasn't a fluke that I managed this on thursday, and because it's sunday so hubby can look after the kids and doing it this afternoon instead of now because I have a hangover
Lyrics - Of course!
Definitely all yours Joe - I succeeded in having a lie in.
Jesse - I'm sure it wasn't a fluke. Make sure you drink enough before hand though, it's quite warm and dehydration will be more of a problem with having had a hangover and running in the afternoon.
Des - what's on the treadie for you today or is it a rest day?
What: long walk with the dog.Why: had a little run yesterday/recovery/schedule starts again tomorrow.Last rest: 14/8.Last hard: 8/8.
Lyrics - I'd be embarrassed to admit otherwise!
Yesterdays Lyrics were "5 Miles Out" by Mike Oldfield.
Today's - Ah jasus come on!!!!!
Thanks for the well dones yesterday. Unfortunately, I had a feed of Beer and wine last nite. I was first to wake to the Childrens early morning call and am sitting here watching Bob The Builder, drinking coffee, eating Weetabix and sobering up. I'll do 14 miles soon, but when the body is a bit better sorted out because its back to the grindstone today!!!!.
Joe - thats a long run - all the best for it!!!
Jesse - welcome
DesRes - How long till you alight in Blighty
TT - Semi day today. I've no doubt you'll be in the All-Ireland before evening!!.
Mava - I've noticed some serious commuting with you and a few others on here. Its easy to say its not worth it but its an unfortunate essential to pay the bills.
hi hilly, good to see you
Joe - rather you than me....
What: 3.1 miles easy Why: just to see if I couldLast hard: sleeping last nightLast rest: from running, Friday
Did a bit of internet research yesterday and am beginning to wonder whether my gut problems are candida overgrowth in the gut rather than IBS. Does anyone know anything about this? Suits my symptoms very well, and I've really noticed how much worse my guts are when I eat sweet foods. Slight problem being a marathon runner if that is my problem as a sugar free/low carb diet is what is required
Have a good sunday.
JH: Nice long run, enjoy the Ridgeway ( The pasties at Bray are good!)
Paddy: Very impressive sir. Well done
What: 8 miles in 60 mins on the tready d & dWhy: Uping the anti againLast Hard: Yesterdays death marchLast Rest: FridayLyrics: Of course
Someone keyed the side of my car over the weekend,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Grr.
Lyrics - "You, yes you, stand still laddie". (That's the track inbetween Parts 1 and 2).
JH - that's definitely a long run!
What: well, I was going to say long run, but now I'll just say 13MWhy: half-mara trainingLast hard: just done itLast rest: Thursday
Its not the haven of low crime & vandalism that the press would have you believe, there are yobs and criminals the world over. The really frustrating part is that to get a scratch sprayed you first have to get a police report as garages aren't allowed to do any repairs with out a report!
I managed somewhat over 30 but not much more.
It was pretty comfortable pace wise and ended up having a very nice time.
Ran over to Saville Gardens on the side of Windsor Great Park (about 8M) to meet up with some people for a long run. I missed the group I was planning on running with DOH , but ran with the 8:30 group who where doing around 10M rather than 20M.
A nice big loop in the great park taking in Virginia Water and the polo fields and the copper hourse at the top of the long walk (11.5M). Then cake stop
And then back home with a bit of a zigzag in the great park down the long walk up to the castle then down to the Thames path back to Dorney and then cutting back down Jubille river home (about 12).
A because the pace was fairly slow I still feel good and may nip out for another couple this evening to get the 40M.
DD - Thats a bugger
Well done Gobi, improving nicely without pain is a very good sign..
Been in Greek Island of Thassos all week, resting.... well only clocked 25m which is a good rest for me, other that falling in style again down hill on a track, that hurt... OUCH indeed, then to wash all the dust, blood and bits off went for a swim in the sea..... Salt and open cuts.... ouch.... by the double....
Back to hard training tomorrow.....
Lyrics...... any hammers around....!
JH,even 30ml on a hot day is pretty good; sounds like a pleasant route
Gobi well done on the duathlon
stickless, it always takes my legs at least 3ml to wake up
RFJ, ouch, but the salt water will have been good to heal the cuts
What: 5.5ml easy; I hadn;t eaten properly last night and was completely glycogen depleted despite only running 5ml.;then: discus competition. I'd hope for a PB which I'm sure I'm capable of, but 3 poor throws and a no throw,. Dissapointed with that
Good evening everyone,
Stickless: That sounds a most civilized Sunday but for the back problem. Best not to antagonize an issue. I am monitoring your progress with a certain admiration. Keep at it.
Welcome Tectona, now that is an interesting nickname. I once sailed an old sail training ship with that name. Any connection?
That really sucks DD, chop their hands off I say.
40: Nice mileage dude!
Joe: Really nice mileage dude!
Hey Paddy, last three weeks all being well. Never believe it until I'm on the flight though. Hope to be home for a 10K race three weeks today.
Mava: You really have some ups and downs girl. Not a clue about your guts but can offer some sympathy. Nothing worse than a dicky tummy.
Hi LMH: Last week's training was a bit messed up due to work, though I got the miles in. That's had a knock on effect to this week where today should have been a long run. Instead did 60mins / 8 miles followed by circuit training. Have reworked the plan for this week so that we're back on track by next Sunday. ("back on track", geddit?, I mean the hamster wheel, oh forget it....)
Pammie: Keep at it! Do you feel to be picking up?
jesseB: Don't overdo it. See you at the GSR!
RFJ: Welcome home, ouch.
TMR: Oh dear.
Enjoy what remains of your weekends....
been awol for a few days with the DIY: we finished the kitchen just in time for the parental arrival and it looks fab. All red and beautiful. It meant running took a back seat, but my mara's not until November, so that's ok. I managed 5 on Monday and 3 on Saturday morning, and then:
What: 12 miles easyWhy: long runs building upLyrics: of course
Joe- wow, that sounds like a great long run.
Gobi, good to see you building the miles.
Nice to see Hilly's been in: must read back.
Good runnings all.
Stickless - sounds like good use of a day. Hope the back doesn't give you too much gyp.
Some good long runs going on.I hope to be back to it soon - if not Abingdon is going to be painful!
Des -I got it I think you'll enjoy the GSR,I did it in my first year back running, well organised, flat and fsat - depending on the wind. You're doing some long training runs for a 10k though - what else do you have in mind?
IM - you're making me feel guilty,I keep meaning to start some decorating but don't seem to get round to it..............did manage some hedge trimming this afternoon though, though I'd better get it done before I've finished recovering and restarted training.
RFJ - ouch.
Gobi - glad to hear that the return to running continues successfully.
That's it - my memory capacity has now been exceeded - sorry if I've missed anything/one.
Bolt was fast!!!!
Anyone hear if Paula Radcliffe is giving the Marathon a shot. I think she was running in NY this weekend and it depended on how that went?
DD - Bad luck. I thought we had the monopoly on fookers like that in this part of the World.
TT - http://www.rte.ie/sport/gaa/championship/2009/0816/tipperary_limerick.html Have a look at this. Tipp looking good - I'm beginning to think that you's have a real chance.
Nice run Joe.
Here's the theory LMH, did a 42min 10K in April on the back of 25 miles per week training whilst here last trip. I've now doubled the distance,plus more. Trying to build strength and stamina to make it all a little easier and bust the 40 minute mark. Also booked for a 1/2 Marathon trail, Saab Salomon @ Rivington ,19th Sept. That won't be a fast race due to the course but whatever the time it will be a PB, I don't have a 1/2M time! GSR is towards the end of October so might fit in one more race sometime midway. Warrington 1/2M is 5th Oct so that could be on...we'll see how the body holds out.. I'll be back to work by mid November but "Hell Up North" holds some appeal before shipping out!
