Take care all
great reports from our runners and racers this weekend.
Just a flying visit to say byeeee as I'm off on hols for 2 weeks at the ungodly hour of 4.15am tomorrow.
I hope to get a chance to do some exercise but my leg is misbehaving still.
Toodle pip and all that.
Woke early to the sounds of the wind bashing about looked at clock tried to get back to sleep wind was surreal. Eventually got up a bit tiredPlanning on 2 miles though knackered ended up doing 3.16 miles as sometimes happens once out and running i feel better so....
What: 3.16 milesWhy: my kinvaras were calling meLast Hard: sunday in the windlyrics: Don't know
Stickless -I've found the immediate refuelling to be the crucial part, something like a milkshake or smoothie in the first half an hour then a carb/protein rich meal within two hours seems to be my best chance for a good second session in a day or recovery for next day. Glad you're seeing the bigger picture and not knocking yourself over this mornings run though.
mava - have a great hols. Hopefully the knee will be 100% by the time you return.
Pammie - you're doing well in keeping going whilst you're out, it really is getting out the door that can be the hardest part isn't it? I don't think biking miles impact the running legs much but they will obviously affect overall tiredness and I'm sure your shifts don't help.
Paddy - hope he said 'yes'!
Well, despite my dodgy left quad and right calf, monster ride on Friday and elevated HR I had a great race.Mile splits are very obviously wind affected (and terrain to a point) and it looks like I faded badly at the end (cumulative fatigue?) but came out with a new PB of 37.51 (did 38.18 here last year) and second female vet - though third really as first female vet actually won the race for the tenth year in a row! Just the swim session and shopping to fit in this afternoon now.
Indeed LMH, well done...and tell us more.
What: another wind-affected off road 30 minsWhy: the daily self disciplineLast hard: not todayLast rest: not today
Lyrics: not today
Just going to watch the last hour of the King's Speech whilst soaking my feet in a contrast bath (ankles feeling bit delicate). Just did a couple of miles walking today. That will do.
Starting to get that good feeling that I may have got a good deal faster in the last few weeks. Am hoping for a 44 min or less 10k on Sunday.
Really appreciatin coming on here and getting the mutual support. I don't always acknowledge how everyone's doing (too hard to keep track), but I just want to say I'm getting a lot out of visiting, so thanks.
Nostalgia plays a big part in my race selection too sometimes, LMUH. It's nice to go back.
Broadsword - great report - very entertaining! This thread is great, helps you get out there most days!
Tom - I had to look twice for a reference of steak in Alehouse's post, then I realized it was streak!
Think a bit like Pammie, that if you run most days, it is just something that you do, and don't really have to think about it a lot.
Your running is coming along nicely.
LMUH - you are always so supportive, and don't ever seem to tell us a lot about your results. Well done in your current race - will have to go look on Shades thread to see your full report.
Stickless - I think getting the fueling right is a huge part of the type of event you are going to do. I think that was one of my problems in the marathon, I felt like I was running on empty, and then felt sick, so I didn't want anything.
M. - good luck for Christchurch.
What: Half an hour jog in Cornwall Park. Legs actually felt quite good. Can't believe that!
Yes, very well done there, LMUH, good effort at the end.
Lyrics were "Come back brighter" by Reef. Thought they were apt.
Left ankle's feeling a bit strained, eeek.
