Go easy on that injury knife-edge GD.
Well battled against Doris Leslie.
Two weeks out sounds like a long time Gul - have you tried sports massage or physio?
Hope the knee sorts itself Lorenzo.
First double session for me for some time - 10K recovery on the treadmill, followed by another 6K recovery a couple of hours later. At least it was good to be indoors!
GUL getting your monies worth there at 1500 miles !
Birch plenty of shoe anorak's in here
G-dawg running is definately tougher on the body the heavier you are.
MSE just take your time to come back no hurry.
Lorenzo that poor miles for a shoe ,Id be upset.
If shoes only lasted 300 miles Id need a new pair every month ! The last 2 pairs that shared duties lasted 1500 miles in total,don't have the splits per pair but say 750 mile each and I usually get them for about 60 quid a pair (Nike pegasus but last year model)
10.6 mile this morn which might be a record for me before days at 7:50 average, on the road for 5:09 am lol
Did anyone read this on sub 3 forum ,quite amazing really and gives us all hope ,40 years of sub 3 !!!
Steve Marathon Coach said:Hi - not posted on forums since Asics withdrew their sponsorship from the marathon teams but someone said I really should post something after the weekend. Obviously I did quite a bit on the forum in the past and on Sunday at Seville I did something that relates to sub-3.I achieved a 40 year-span of sub-3 to go top of this list http://www.arrs.net/TR_SSpan.htmHopefully as wasn't too terrible, have a few more left as well.Athletics weekly covered here http://www.athleticsweekly.com/news/steve-smythe-record-span-sub-3-marathons-57715
PMJ cracking 10k time
Birch 75 min half is fantastic going
Gul enjoy the extra ZZZ's
Just over 8 this morn and 78 mile for the week.
The ripped shoe is an interesting one. My last 2 pairs of Adidas, and 1 last Mizuno all split around the toe area where the shoe bends. Could this be built in obsolesce from the manufacturers. I have actually stitched a couple of pairs up.
Before GPS I used to estimate distances. But when I got my first Garmin I indeed found I was running much slow than I thought and about a mile out on most runs. As for PB's I can't live with you guys.
Parkrun yesterday was a windy affair with a wall of wind from mile 2. Therefore quite happy with 19:08. I followed up with 6 in the afternoon.18 today will get me over 50 on what has been a fairly poor week.
18.5 at 8:30 pace actually felt quite comfortable today. As you say MsE, it's not bad so I'll take it.
Mine are in their 20's and I'm still on chauffeur duties most w/ends...I'd rather that and know they are safe.
PMJ, it comes as no surprise that you ran at such an elite level. Your insights into each run that you share on here are a lesson to me every time.
Speedy recovery Jools.
Well done on the speedy half Minni - they can only get faster.
You need to be careful with the ankle and other niggles GD - but excellent 21 miles nonetheless!
Good LSR and PR given the travelling OO.
Alpine passes over Italy - that sounds like far too much fun MsE.
A big week there Leslie.
Tune-up race yesterday - 10K at the local PR - 20:41 for the solo first loop and then 20:03 for the race proper. Expected to go a bit quicker than that and devastated to record my first ever 20:xx at a Park Run. Still a good work out to add to the mix so will swiftly move on.
Today's Long Run was twenty miles in windy conditions. Thought I would be tired after yesterday but the legs felt pretty fresh on setting off so ended up with 7:20 m/m overall and 7:00 m/m for the last 7.5 miles.
78 miles for the week to match Leslie.
