Another vote here to get to spring quicker. I don't do too much running over winter anyway usually but with the weather we've had recently I would have got out. We had to take the winter duvet out last night because it was a low of 10C! (Mind you we've not had the winter duvet in the previous winters since moving down here. I think it's only because of my shoulder that we've had to resort to it.
Jason, thats some determination.
Chick...some more great running in the early hours.
Tom, Hang in there mate.
I am glad that the stretch was useful to some of you.. As for me I just ran/jogged 5 Miles. It was smooth too.....but not quite Cashmere Smooth. More like felt !!
Will do some more jogging tomorrow and then I have a 12k Race on Sunday in the countryside. It will be nice to getout and about !!
Nuttella....never had it. Sounds like I will like it though !!
Blimey, at 12% I'd be 10mm max!!
Ok who suggested Nutella?? I think it was NP...went shopping last night (after a nice 7.75 mile run at 7:28 av pace - middle 5 miles 7:10 ish) and bought a large jar. Got home and first thing I opened to taste - yum! AGF it's like the middle soft bit of Ferrero Rocher chocs. So now I have to resist it - might be my treat after my 20 miles tomorrow but also trying to lose a bit of weight. Plan 4 or 5 miles tonight very easy.
Hope your Doc speeds things up Tom. Totally agree about the weather, although it's now a tropical 6 degrees and snow all cleared (for now).
That's some incline!
Can the doc do anything to speed things up?
Well done on everyone's training.
EEEEK Gobi!!!LOL, Fiona. I am still resisting the Nutella urge...Went out last night on a colleague's leaving do but I ate no crap and didn't drink anything with alcohol in it . Made myself some tea and toast when I got home as I was starving!13.8 miles done this morning. Perfect running weather: +9C and light rain. Loved it. My pace is still slow but I am trying hard to do the MP + 90secs bit and it seems to work. At least the ratio between slow pace and low HR looks ok.
Nice running chickadee and well done on the willpower.
Gobi, should my long weekend runs be at MP + 60 - 120s or should there be any MP in there at this stage?
Sounds like our usual Friday night dinner as that's all we can be bothered with after I've got the shopping (or in this case both of us until I can drive again).
Sounds like a good strategy.
Terry, NoPain ran Barcelona last year as far as I remember I don't think a medical cert was mentioned, I'm sure he will be able to put you right when he pops in. A few members of our club are going to run it this year.
3.78M Treadmill (I only run it on 0% at the moment) and 1km swim.
Sounds like a plan AGF, I'm sure you will be passing lots.
I was in Tesco last night and totally forgot about Nutella, thank god, if it tastes like the insides of a FR I would have done the jar and gone back for another I think it must not enter the house
MrS, pasta and water, yeah right.
Chickadee - nice run. I've just posted my entry for the Dursley Dozen on 13th Feb so will need to be upping the miles again soon if I want to improve and meet my target for the race!
Jason - top mental grit shown there. Most of us, well me anyway, would have said "@rse to it" and called in at the offy on the way home
Gobi - was the km swim across a flood? I'm in shorts again but still thermal and running top, no t-shirt for me...
Lots of % incline stuff going on with the dreadmills then... 5.5 miles tonight with miles 2 and 3 on an average 9% gradient run at 8:45 and 9:17. Quite pleased as it was in the dark with a headlamp and had to contend with a fair amount of mud and water en route too
4 miles easy on Weds, 6.5 miles hard tempo Thu.
Got a fair bit in this week.
Merthyr Mawr Xmas Pudding 10K on Sunday, Postponed because of snow on 19/12. Great race and really looking forward to it...
Friday is beer/wine and pizza night Mr Spoons. It's the LAW
Jayc- lol! Good luck with MM- really fancy doing that one next year
Nutella tastes like it looks IMHO- far, far too sweet for my tastebuds!
Gobi- interesting what you say about MP cos my AM plan has me down for doing 17m this Sunday with 10 @ MP
13.4m @ very relaxed 8.32 av tonight
No nutella here- Low fat home made chilli and wholegrain rice washed down with fizzy water for me now- this is going to take real willpower as Mrs JD just bought a bottle of wine!
