Gutted, I did 5.2 yesterday. Could easily have made a 6!!
Gul, so by 7am you'd been out running and decorated?? There's me disappointed I couldn't get back to sleep when I work for a wee at 7.30!
Not much fun trying to hit 5k sort of pace in the wind, OO.
Off out lunchtime for my usual 8m tempo.

I came along here as you were just beginning your issues so I've no real idea where you were pace wise and where you are heading back to?9 for me a well yesterday, however I kept it very easy following Tuesdays reps. I managed to avoid the rain but it was very windy. Just a shorter recovery today and some turbo work if I get time.

Joolska said:C'mon, MsE, don't be shy. What does "managed to get a decent run in" mean? You must be getting into decent shape to have done a 9.x mile run at a faster pace as well as the 7m/m stuff earlier in the week.12 miles with 3 x 4km @ marathon effort today. Just outside 3 hour pace (which would be 17 minutes dead for each effort): 17.11, 17.02, 17.04. But definitely going in the right direction (especially as it's still 8.5 months until the B of Bang, if that happens at all...)
Happy birthday, Speedy. I have a massage gun as well, though it's a cheaper version of the product, but still effective.
MsE, decent 9m on Saturday. We must be in relatively similar shape. Happy birthday also.
I wish i'd got my long run in on Saturday, g-dawg.
We had an initial covering of snow Saturday evening and then there was forecasted snow sunday mid morning, then about 8am as I was contemplating getting out it came down fast and heavy and before I know it there was a reasonably significant snowfall. I decided 17m in trail shoes and yaktraxs wouldn't leave my hips in great shape so went out for an enjoyable 7m in the lanes with a few nice photos also.
Todays 4m recovery is now a bit more with 10m planned for lunchtime. My aim is to try and ensure that I end up with the same mileage for the month, so 4m to slot in over the course of other runs this week.
It's annoying as it left me with 44m last week and broke my 6 week run of 50m plus weeks.
With talk now of schools not going back until after Easter and the Govts clear line that schools will reopen before anything else, the prospect of Dorney mara happening on Easter weekend is a fast diminishing one.
MsE- No I am not slaughtering myself in a solo mara. If something doesn't occur in April, someone will organise one in May/June. I'll keep my powder dry without the need to taper and recover.
Until someone tells me otherwise, much like SBD did over the summer, i'm cracking on as if it's all good.
I do have a place in the Ashby virtual 20, which is currently in as my last big session, 2 weeks out from Dorney. I basically just needed a new hoody and the £20 entry seemed quire reasonable to get one.
Shame about the virtual session. Amazing how engaging it must be for you to then not enjoy just continuing.
Well done on getting the 5 i n Gul.
I'm leaving my run today for 4pm to maximise the thaw and still squeeze in daylight.
