That's bad new, Poacher.
Yes Raceways is now a housing development. Shame as it was a good option 3 times a year and it was on a Saturday.
My tempos are done on a 1.75m lap course so with wu and cd and a 10m tempo i'm doing about 8 laps. I see the same faces walking their dogs each week and they applaud me with a bewildered look as I keep coming back towards them at what probably looks like a pretty sharp pace (6.30s) compared to most other folk you see jogging about the place.
What's the most laps anyone else has run in one go?
I like doing the tempo runs on the track, so 4K w/u, 10K tempo and 4K w/d, giving a total of18K. But a track marathon would clearly be insane!
Good miles for the day and weekly total Gul.
Fast intervals in the 10 miler nicko.
A quality track session G-D - I couldn't get near those mile paces!
Sadly no prize for the AC win at Surrey HM. Will also need to work on the sprint finish for when I'm next in a race with G-D!
Slight calf wobble for me on Monday. Had completed a 10K recovery run at lunchtime with the legs feeling surprisingly good but then, when attempting a second short recovery run in the evening, the right calf started to tighten up. Stopped (was on the treadmill), stretched and rolled and then finished the 6K, hoping it would be fine the next day after some more rolling and icing. Sadly, on Tuesday it tightened up again after 3K, so I binned the session after making it to 5K and Wednesday was a similar story. Had the sports massage booked for Thursday morning so lots of work on the calf. Hopefully that's done the trick. So a 12 mile progressive run today, finishing at 6:20 m/m pace. Not quite 100% but hopefully I can get back on schedule with the training plan. Have binned the planned 10K race for tomorrow and will just have a steady few days with hopefully a LSR on Sunday.
A good day's work nicko - 13 at MP after a 9 mile w/u is hard work, so I'd say that was a good session given the conditions. Just let the taper do it's work.
Have you thought about getting some physio treatment Poacher?
Well plodded out in the wind G-D.
Hope you got the LSR in OO.
Managed to run the planned 10K race as a solo session on the treadmill yesterday - the calf seemed happier at the faster pace and I felt I needed the "speed" work. So 10K in 39:35, with the last 2K in 3:50 and 3:45. Managed to get the HR up to 180 which is about as high as it goes. Today was the 20 miler, the aim being just to get the miles in without any issues. Quite windy and spent the first half running directly in to the wind. The calf was tightening up at times but it felt fine at the end of the run - so 20 miles at 7:43 m/m pace. Feel really happy to have got that run under the belt. Just need a big final week before the taper.
