Good to see you back running MsE - hopefully the injuries are behind you and you can build the training back. I've been struggling to get the speed up so perhaps I need to invest in the red shoes as well ...
Sounds like you've got the icing and foam rolling technique perfected G-D. Hopefully, you can get back on the NYC training.
Good easy 12 miles DT - hopefully the weather cools before Saturday! Still working on the Autumn marathon entry - if you hear of an Abingdon entry going spare let me know!
That's a confidence building 12 miles Stevie.
Nice the legs are holding up Lorenzo after your tube exploits. Have you thought about running the entire Thames Path sometime? I need to walk or run it sometime.
An excellent run at the Grim Reaper Speedy and a good placing. How did your pacing change over the course?
That's still a tidy time OO - the beach sections can't help with the pace.
Good racing Leslie - building back nicely.
A bit hot today but a 10K tempo session on the plan. Back on the treadmill, which was the better option, although still a little on the warm side even at lunch time. Had to drop the pace a little and break the tempo section in to a 6K and 4K but good to have got done. 39:36 for the 10K section with 3K w/u and w/d. Good to have got done in the conditions. Just need to work out how to get tomorrow's 15 miler done - may have to use the treadmill at lunch time. At least I only have a 10K recovery session for Thursday!
Good to hear from you, Gul. Yes a good pummelling is often good.
Yes Magor is Saturday. In the mix of the weather we are in the midst of, with Saturdays current forecast I've lucked in.
Easy 3 with strides tonight which I think I will take to the treadmill for. Plan Saturday is to go through 5k at 19.10 with no crazy first mile and feel controlled and then hopefully run the next 5k at least 5 seconds faster! I am not at all sure I have that in me, but I've nothing to lose in trying.
It'll come back with some consistent training, Nicko.
Thanks, good luck in your race.
I've not entered a race yet for the Autumn. Have a few ideas but nothing firm yet.
Good work on the 5Ks nicko and Jools and good to see you getting back to the training nicko!
Good race support Poacher. Hopefully, the leg doctor can patch you up.
A good result at the 10K DT even though you were looking for more. To be able to hit the planned pace for the first three miles shows good speed and discipline. Perhaps you need some specific training for that mid-race gear change.
Coming along nicely Leslie. The HM should be a good test.
Another fast 5K OO.
Hope the 5K went well Stevie.
Sounds like you had a great time in Tuscany Gul. Hopefully, the leg returns to normal soon, Definitely worth considering the sports massage or indulging in the foam roller if you are not already doing so.
Nothing quick here today, just the usual Sunday long run. It had been quite a cool day until just before I set off for the run at 5pm. The sun came out and it was beginning to feel a little warm. Twenty miles for the day at an average 7:42 pace with a last mile of 6:37 just to keep the legs honest. Didn't take any fluid with me and the scales showed I'd lost 3Kg during the run which probably explains why I felt drained at the end!
77 miles for the week so building the mileage nicely.
Had been planning to run New York but the plan has now fallen through due to a few personal issues. Have requested a place at Yorkshire (they seem to operate a GFA scheme, hopefully with no cut-off date) and am on the cancellation list for Abingdon. Hopefully one of these will come through. The only negative is that marathon day is now only 12 weeks away rather than 14!
