You're not crap. You just don't want to be told you can't do what you want to do. I hate going to the opticians as when I do need glasses because I have a complex lense it usually costs me £180 and that's just with cheap frames so I can. But as it's health related I force myself to go & take Chris with me to hold my hand because I hate opticians that much & to also help pick new frames as I'm very short sighted. At least we don't have to pay for medical treatment only prescriptions.
I'd say about someone on here who had a friend comment on something similair when they were both out running and a few weeks later the person collasped during a training session. I can't remember the outcome fully only that the poster felt really guilty they didn't suggest to their friend to get checked out.
First of all MR SPOONS GO SEE YOUR DOC We can all be macho or stupid at times but you should go and get pains in the chest checked out, it might be something as simple as the muscels between your ribs but go and get it checked out please.
6 miles this morning 1 mile warm up and 5 miles tempo went a little hard in mile 4 and slowed a little in mile 6 but sitll very happy with the run, out tonight for just over 8 miles steady.
Gobi thats fantastic recovery, intervals and 1 hour on the turbo.
Jayc great running in the dark.
Jason did you do the run in lanes lol, I don't mind the rain so much as we seem to get a lot here.
MrS what with work and everything else I find it hard to fit in regular times for things such as clubs, thats why I asked about the lanes been closed in the first place. I know that I would benifit from a club and proper training but just don't have the time.
Fiona great pace for your reps well done, living of toast based meals did you drop any weight?
Well done. That's the only problem about unpredictable shifts because just as you can't leave a fire (I imagine once another crew comes on shift they would relieve you if it was taking time to deal with) I can't leave a call until the customer goes so any clubs or exercise classes I'd like to go it would have to be on a Sunday or Saturday afternoon after a set time.
I also eat a lot of chocolate NP and with the toast things like smoked salmon, peanut butter or scrambled eggs so just a couple of pounds!
How many doubles are you doing this time round?
Chickadee & Gobi,
Get to the Dr's MrS.
Treadmills are good, got to keep saying it, another 3M @ 10mm this morning and a 1km swim, just trying to keep some sort of aerobic base.
Nice fast mile in the pool the other day NP, was that with the webbed gloves? and do you think it helps improve you stroke, I read somewhere that they help train your hand to enter the water correctly.
I need to lose weight too, so no more talk of peanut butter on toast Fiona please......
Mr Spoons can only reiterate what others have said...........DRS.
FionaC - I never think of toast based meals as low calorie either as unfortunately I love my toast covered in butter Hope your hip flexor settles.
Another 16.5 for me today including 10 miles progressive. Hardwork as three miles were into wind but legs feeling strong which is always nice.
Nearly forgot, well done Gobi on another marathon!!
Tom I keep a jar of peanut butter here in my desk drawer so only about half sees the toast. I love the stuff! Worse than butter Zion - nice running by the way!
Have you had toast with a cinnamon & sugar butter before? It's a bit of work to do to but very yummy.
Mr S- i think there's a common theme beginning to emerge here
Tom- good man, love the dedication
I love peanut butter too, but am resisting the temptation as I've got to shed some pounds. Toast is great too- just no butter only marmalade. Porridge for breakfast for me these cold days
10m for me tonight: 5m slow, 4m faster, 1m warm down
I'm glad I'm not the only person who doesn't have butter on jammed/maraladed toast. It's only when I just have toast by itself that I have butter.
8.6 miles tonight steady running with a good friend nice.
Fiona Dobles on a Tuesday and Thursday, easy runs on Monday and Fridays plus a swim if I can firt it in.
Fiona do you like nutella? nice on toast as is honey mmmmmmmmmmm........ good running food.
Tom nice to see you still on the treadmill mate better than nothing any sign of another date to see the Doc yet? Also the swimming will help lots, regarding the gloves I havn't used them yet but will let you know when I have.
Zion nice 16.5 miles, it's hard if you turn into the wind but it sounds like the training has started to kick in.
AGF nice running it's good trying to work to a plan.
Jason great going seen your miles on Fetch Your tempo run seemed to go well.
Missed your post sorry. I can't wait until I'm back at work. I'm getting to the stage when I can do a bit more but I need to becareful that I don't do too much that it sets me back.
All this talk of toast ............................ I have just put pizza in the oven
I'm too late to nag Mr Spoons but I'm sure you can guess what I would have said!
Did my intervals tonight. 5 x 1K with 200m recoveries. Pace was like the curate's egg - good in parts as 2 wefe close to 9 mm but other bits less good with2 nearer 9.30. For most of the time it felt like I'd been kicked in the backside Good point is that I am generally ok walking, it is only a problem when I try to run and extend my stride too much. Will see what the fizz says tomorrow
Mr S - excellent mile times! Oh yes, go see a doctor
Zion, Fiona, NP, Jason, AGF, Chickadee... all posting good runs and mileage. Well done
Jason - I'm with you on skipping the butter when having jam or marmalade too
NP - I'd heard doubles are good to incorporate in any training plan. My mara training doesn't start until late Jan, but I might start running to and from work on a Thursday, which would be 2 x 4.5 miles approx, although I could extend either fairly easily...
4.1 miles off road hill repeat session lunchtime today. Only four of us out today, three of which are faster than me and the unofficial "leader" for the day being the fastest and most accomplished runner made it a real hard workout. "It must be doing me some good" was my thoughts as I was struggling up the last climb, 180+ HR and legs like lead weights
15.5 mile MTB ride this evening...
well i managed 16 miles this evening and no reaction, so its back to planning (except for speedwork until next week). Not worried as plenty of time to get intervals going.
No Pain - where are your prep races?
Ms S - best of luck with doc
More snow. But determined to get out tonight, problem is the ice under the snow.
Never tasted Nutella NP...just had 3 morning chocs with my coffee (the Xmas chocs will be gone by Friday!)
Good run AGF, I'll be doing one of those tonight. Nice 10+ milers jason and Gobi - I'd trade your rain at the moment!
Good to get the fast stuff done Mr Spoons and USB and jaycm with hills - I must do a hill session soon.
Nice to see you recovered Paddy.
Dog sitting at the moment so a snowy walk this morning. The cats are behaving like gangsters and I had to separate them last night as small white cat had large black lab cornered. Left them together today, they seemed ok!
