Nice one, Poacher. Yep looks like all that made the pub last year are in. Great to see you running again.
Leslie, glad the knee is a bit better. Is it worth seeing a podiatrist to properly look at your foot strike and gait etc?
Great 5k, OO. That's faster than what I could probably do mile intervals at.
Nice progressive, Gerard. I see Jersey has been the host to some misbehaving sports stars!! The strava segments where I was were all fair and sensible to be fair. There was another decent runner there and so where it gives segment leader boards for the day, we would often alternate between 1 and 2.
Nice easy 7, Gul. I do agree with other comments that a couple of good half's will set you up well. With the miles you do, you should then convert well. I do also see the point that going for broke and a sub 3 might be less appealing than simply trying to get under 3.15 and pacing for that.
Nice session, Stevie. Happy birthday. Yes whatever happens you will smash your pb. I did Stratford parkrun last August and it was a bit of a breakthrough for me in that I took 33 seconds off my 13 month old pb. I think if you were to run a 10k at sub 38 pace you would need to be posting a very low 18 at parkrun this week.
Just bodypump last night. We had been up since 4am travelling so it was better than nothing. 12 mile mlr planned tonight. Getting into London has given me some food for thought. We are going to be in Edinburgh by looks when the mara is on. I don't really want to dominate unduly a family weekend with mara stuff. However, even if I did it easy and enjoyed it, it seems a shame not to take the opportunity.
Congrats everyone on the GFA places. Very jealous! Determined to make sure I am definitely in for 2020.
Gul - Have a great weekend in France, an easy weekend will do you good.
OO - Fantastic PB and excellent pacing! I think my coach did the same race as you, he won with a course record of 14.34!
Entered Cheltenham Half yesterday so that's my race schedule sorted for the next few months
Thanks for the birthday wishes DT. Yes aim is to get as close to 18mins as I can. Enjoy the MLR
DT - Indeed, what a moron, apparently he punched a female cop and then tried to run off whilst handcuffed. He's not the brightest and almost ruined his sports career once already. Your holiday Strava battle sounds fun.
OO - As said elsewhere your 5k time is very impressive. You are having an unbelievable run of form.
Gul - Enjoy France, love going there for short visits.
Stevie - Nicely done on the half entry, I was hoping to do the Jersey one in September as a warm up for the mara but I am flying off Island now so no half marathon for me this year.
5k tempo lunch run today 6:37 avg. Wind and rain, not pleasant. I think summer came a month early and now autumn has arrived a month early too. It's been awful since I have come back from Holland. Much prefer living/running in the warmth and sunshine, think I need to emigrate!
Nice 15, Gul.
Stevie, yes, it definitely seems to suit you.
Poacher, I have been getting knee pain recently. Then I looked back on garmin and realised i'd done over 500 miles in my current trainers, which is likely to be the reason. New pair ordered today. Good solo tempo.
Just planning a recovery 5 today then i'm hoping I can get up for a parkrun tomorrow. I've not slept well since holiday and waking up knackered and if I do that tomorrow the last thing I will fancy is a parkrun at any effort level.
Did anyone read this article-
It just throws up the fact that this runner will be just a decent club/county level female really and will probably not even think that rules about what you can have in your body really apply to her and she certainly wont have the wealth of medical advice to know what she can and cant take like an elite would.
OO – Awesome 5k PB – that a full 30 seconds better than me.
So you should be 10 seconds a mile faster at all distances. My Marathon PB is
2:48:36 – you can do the maths….
Poacher, OO– Well done on the GFAs!
GM – Nippy lunch 5k
Leslie – Sorry to read your knee problems continue but a
good 5.3 miles done. I’d recommended weekly hill sprints to protect from injury
– 10 second sprint up, walk back down and repeat 10 times.
GD – Great paced 6 miler with a fast finish
Stevie – Belated happy birthday! Good luck in Cheltenham
Gul – That’s a great progressive 15 miler
DT – Nice HM easy effort. Only 500 miles and your changing your
trainers? I’ve never retired a pair under 2000 miles and planning over 3000 in
my current Hokas.
I was feeling shattered on Wednesday and didn’t think my
interval session on Thursday was going to go well. However, I’m very pleased
with my fastest intervals of the year. I ran 13.1 miles including 6 x 1 mi at
5:56 m/m average. That’s 21 seconds a mile faster than 2 weeks ago, so show’s
how I progress with high mileage training.
I'm top of the Marathon Talk podium this week
Nice intervals and podium topping, Badbark. I've never listened to marathon talk and wouldn't know where to find it. Is it general running chat or literally 'marathon' chat?
I cant comprehend that mileage in a pair of trainers. I usually change at 400-500 miles as my knees and shins begin to suffer. It's slightly annoying as particularly in summer they still look pretty new.
