I'm not normally a morning person, but went out this morning for my lsr. Sunny , cool to start, but then wet, and windy. 15.03m in 2:15 @ 8.59 pace. Achilles only slightly tight towards the end, but even better, felt pretty fresh at the end. Feeling a bit more optimistic now. Still 6wks to go, so still a chance to get a 20miler in.
2old - Glad you're taking your lsr's nice an easy (not).
Ant/Free - Good runs
Good luck to the racers, rather you than me looking at the forecast.
2old - I'm going to have to come over there and sort you out!!!
Nice LSR Simon.
Minni- you probably should
Simon-great run , I have every confidence you'll get that 20 done. Don't forget your cycling gives you tremendous aerobic fitness so it's just a case of carefully building up the miles In your legs. Think you missed the worse of the wind.
FRC- Spoons male? I was wondering too Think you will be going up a few more pens after the race ..good luck ...and to Mrs FRC too. By the way I don't race every training run...most ..but not everyone
Pink- bet that was a bracing run ..we can see the Blackpool tower from the hill across the road from here . Hoping England will do Wales a favour today
Chick- he was the first signatory of the American Declaration of Independence. When asked to sign something in the states they sometimes say ' put your John Hancock there'. Useless bit of information done .
rest day today if you can call the 5 hour drive I've done a rest.
Good running this weekend all
Good luck to tomorrow's racers, Carrot and Freemers - hope the weather is nice like today and the wind isn't too bad! FRC - enjoy Malta, sounds like good conditions. And go Bro, eek exciting to have some race reports to look forward to tomorrow!
Simon - good that your achilles is behaving.
Thanks for all your kind words re the knee. I do feel like a bit of a fraud still posting on here, but love reading how well you are all training and especially seeing people make excellent come backs post injury - gives me hope! I haven't been put forward for a mri, the doctor felt there was no need as I don't have any pain, clicking and I have full movement when he did the circular/pull in all directions things with my leg. Today was great - went for a brisk 2 hour walk by the seaside while Mr Kiwi did a parkrun and some extra miles, knee was fine. Back to the physio Tuesday and expecting to get the green light to run again
Just popping in quickly to wish Bro all the very best for tomorrow. Trust in the training and believe you can do it. It's all mental strength now.
another 20 bagged for me yesterday and a recovery run today which hurt!! Will read back later when I have more time.
AA- 20again so soon after that fast one.? Brilliant ! You are right about mental strength. Wonder how much of what we do involves this once weve got the running in our legs . Maybe that's the trick to getting a PB
Go Bro. Enjoy your run..it's going to be a good one. You too FRC.
Celebrating Englands win... Can't believe I'm saying this
Brol - Good luck, race hard and enjoy.
FRC - Good luck to you and your OH.
Simon - Good confidence boosting run. Time for a couple of 20's.
AA - Well done on the 20.
2old - Nice pacy long run, I think you enjoy being told off.
I enjoyed watching the rugby, Pink not happy.
Barry: Me and Pink both!
Not good news from me, 10 slow this morning, left calf felt a bit tight but OK, decided to try some MP miles, but within a mile left calf went "pop" and stopped me dead, could n't walk on it yet alone run, so hobbled home. Not trying to be too down about it but I think Barcelona will be a get around effort with no target.
Barry - oh no seriously not again.
I off to track Bro....
Oh no Barry that's not good!!!. Don't write it off yet. ice etc and see how it is over the next few days. Fingers crossed.
when do Bro and FRC get going?
Free- ok I'm taking your heed . I avoided that session last week ...are they to teach us leg speed and get us used to aspeed we rarely run. Great going and good luck today
Old4s gutted for Ireland yesterday I really thought they would win.
Free Good Luck
Kiwi fingers crossed for you
Went out for a 5 miler this morning & just as I finished met Barry & walked the short way home with him. Peed off for him, bloody calf! (Sad face)
Oh no Barry.
It was a good win for Scotland yesterday.
Freemers/Carrot - hope the races are going ok. That is a strong wind. Looking forward to the reports.
20 miles for me this morning in 7:56. The last 5 were supposed to be at MP but they were straight into the wind. Managed 7:14 for the last miles though (out of the wind)
GO GO GO Brolish! Its all looking good for her!
2old - That was a very strong 20!
Did 20 myself yesterday, despite taking the first couple easy, the wheels came off from 16 miles on! I really haven't broken into long endurance mode this time round, good thing my marathon isn't until May... Half Marathon next weekend, then back to some serious work.
Minni- nice 20 and very strong last mile. What were the splits bearing in mind you planned a progressive run and finished under 8mm. Glad Scotland won.
40 mins - well done with that 20 - nothing worse when the wheels come off but better now than May. Plenty of time yo rack up more 20s. Which race are you doing?
Bro- congrats on your PB ..I didnt track you so I'm looking forward your report.
eek, proper excited, go Bro! Looking forward to the race report, not been up long so haven't tracked it.
2old - here are my splits. I did a small loop then a big one and I knew I couldn't avoid the wind in the last few miles. Miles 6 - 15 were run with the either a side wind or from behind, which was very nice!
Minni- think I can see where the wind was for or against you ...very strong running there. I found the wind very energy draining but am ok today ,how about you after that ?
Minni - Very good 20.
Freemers - Just spoke to my physio and he said the same thing, lots of icing and when I start running again just slow stuff.
Brol - Congrats, I was tracking you, very well done.
Minni Scotland played really well & had a great finish. Well done on the 20 miles
Meant to say earlier Happy Birthday Simon
We were tracking Brol - excellent. Congratulations
Nice one Chick
