Sounds like a sound financial decision PMJ I imagine it wasn't an easy one though.
PMJ - don't forget you promised us a Sub 20 Parkrun time before the end of 2019!
Watching videos of Michael Jordan take 3 years off and play 2 more years with an ageing body, injury prone and nothing to lose has inspired me to train again towards another marathon and reach my 10th marathon finish and work towards 250 Park Runs.
My club renewal is due. I haven't trained with them since July 2013, 4 days before my 2nd child was born. However I make my membership back with the reduced race fees and running certain races for the club that I enjoy and the club pay for.
OO, nice pace on the club gp.
Ian, I do think a decent weekly tempo at a bit faster than mp, of around 7-10m is a useful run and it doesn't cause too much damage to the body.
Nice tempo, SBD.
Good work on the 16, Gul. I also find it hard to just switch over the pace to that extent. I would basically need to treat it as a warm up, stop for a minute or so then start again at the next pace.
Sub 17- sorry to hear of your issues. Hopefully you'll get that sorted and regain former fitness.
Recovery 6 Monday and then 4 last night in awful conditions. 11m mlr over lunch today. It absolutely hammered down from 3-7 miles which then left me freezing cold and soaked for the remainder. It did encourage me to pick up the pace in an attempt to get warm so ended up 7.59mm pace for a pretty low 139hr.
You may recall a month or so ago I posted the link to those futuristic looking leg devices I had purchased. They arrived last week and I have used them everyday and I must say my lower legs (which are constantly sore and very tight) have never felt better. The experience of using it is also quite enjoyable. It's just a 15m cycle sat on the sofa.
My fitbit recently died and have been looking at a replacement. I only really use it for hr and sleep tracking so question whether any old tracker will do. In looking I have seen this rather elaborate device for half the cost and wondered if anyone else had experienced a device of such detail and whether the stats it throws up are to be believed? I'm struggling to see how a £59 device can do so many quite in depth measurements and do it with credibility.
Recovery run with strides in Cambridge on Wednesday so running back to the polling station was not an option.
The wristy thing looks very comprehensive DT! Can you post the link to the leg devices again - you've renewed my curiosity!
Good pace on the GP run OO. Good luck for Sunday, don't go off to quick and believe in yourself.
Sounds like you're in control Ian - I'm sure the Sub 3 will come.
10 miles progressive run late afternoon, from 8:20 down to 6:24. Felt harder than it should have but good to have ticked off.
That's an excellent time at the parkrun DT and good work on the weight. I must have put on close to 5kg since Abingdon - very poor discipline on my part!
Bad luck on the lost training Leslie although 10 days won't have lost you much fitness. A couple of days training and you'll be back to where you were.
16 miles long run early morning at Eton Dorney Lake. I'm not used to running so early at the moment and the first kilometre of 5:24 didn't do anything for my confidence! Managed to pick up the pace progressively, finishing with a 4:33 final kilometre and an average pace for the run of 7:45. Good to be back up at 16 miles although 20 miles in a couple of weeks time could be interesting!
