Blimey Lorenzo you really are getting hardcore- and just a few degrees away from BB I'd suggest- a 53 mile trail run followed by one of the toughest marathons- good heavens! And you are wondering why you might be tired!
I saw Poachette on the telly and she ran brilliantly, what an experience for her.
Jools - Well done, coming back into some goof form and consistent miles.
5k easy run on lunch with a pick up in face in the last 2k. 25c and muggy. Should have gone for a swim too.
Well done to your niece, Poacher, 11th in a field at that level is good going. That comrades medal looks proper no frills but no doubt has pride of place. For context, is the Portsmouth medal gigantic? I cant quite work out if that is the case of if comrades is smaller than the norm?
Jools, well done on the stage win and the other mileage
Good work g-dawg. I am debating getting out early Saturday morning for my long run but by that I mean 8am!
Nice reps yesterday and easy today, Gul.
Lorenzo, well done on the picnic and the fundraising. That must have been brutal in this heat!
Birch, well done to your son and daughter. As said above, it must be frustrating as and when this happens. It'll come to us all in time.
well done on the hot long run, Gerard.
Badbark, that's crazy mileage. A consistent 68 a week over 26!
My mara schedule started yesterday. I jumped into week 2 as I have 15 weeks left, though i'll have to drop another week later on as I have a 10 day holiday in August. Started out with 5 miles easy over lunch at 7.56. As I hadn't run or really trained since Friday my legs felt good. Therefore I decided to get my interval session done last night on the treadmill as it was only 4 x 800. It was quite pleasant running in a heavily air conditioned gym. I started off conservatively ish with a 2.49. For each rep after that I hit the speed button up one notch so the final rep was 2.46. With hindsight in terms of effort that's where I should have started. Got straight off the treadmill and into my usual Monday spin class to round off a productive first day.
Today I am planning 5 at mp over lunch which will be unpleasant. I have an offsite 4pm meeting close to home and if that finishes by 5pm I'll get home and get a 3-5 mile recovery in before picking up the kids at 6.
Nice fast session, Gul.
Leslie- nice 800s. Eventually this weather will end and everything will seem much easier.
Lorenzo, it'll probably be much the same on Saturday afternoon!! Fortunately not being English, whilst I was keen for them to progress, I don't have the same degree of passion as most others will have.
Just some strength work tonight, before runs Thursday-sunday. Hoping to tip into a 50 mile week this week. Shouldn't be a problem as having done my two harder sessions already I am feeling pretty fresh for it.
Some good racing and sessions going on here, plenty to catch up on!
After four days on a stag in Magaluf I kicked off the Abingdon campaign yesterday with an easy 5 to sweat some beer out! Also first day of coaching which is exciting.
Got the On Cloud X's yesterday which I was really impressed with very light and responsive. Looking forward to testing them over some faster runs.
Got 12, 6 and 10 inc 6m tempo planned for the rest of the week.
