i am sat here thinking of our brave thread compatriots out there braving the elements i hope all is going well
Well i have just entered the ballot for the London marathon so i will have to wait and see how that goes gym session today
Priscilla, jelly beans etc are good. But they do not have salts/electrolytes in them. You lose those in your sweat so trying to find something that has them in ( eg shot bloks blackcurrent - that they hand out) will be fine.
The following from website explains...
"When you're running, electrolytes are crucial in maintaining your body's ability to transmit nerve impulses and contract muscles. Electrolytes serve other biological functions, too, including water balance and distribution to working cells as well as acid-base balance.........The symptoms of electrolyte imbalance are often the same as those of dehydration, since the two tend to go hand in hand. A common symptom is muscle and/or abdominal cramping. Other symptoms include light-headedness, nausea, confusion and muscle spasms."
Hope that helps...
Rang the changes today did a 40 minute gym session with some weights and then finished off with a 3 mile run on the treadmill
I looked at the video clips of me and thought they were a bit short and a bit crap, certainly not worth 10 quid IMHO. I would be interested to know whether you get much more than that when you buy the whole DVD from them though?
I did buy the photos because there were 25 pictures for 25 quid which seemed reasonable to me. I looked terrible in most of them, but a few of them were OK.
Today was the first run I've had since marathon day when I actually felt recovered and quite enjoyed the running again. I need to start thinking about putting some sort of schedule together for the next one in Amsterdam in October - time is flying already...
Ahh - Abingdon Marathon - I toyed with that one because I've heard lot's of good things about it - it's the same day as Amsterdam so I guess we'll be on similar schedules.
Just a couple of months of easy runnning before it all starts over again
Am thinking of trying a different approach to my training next year after the gym session today i normally do a 5 miles run either side of my MWLR but after today i may well do what i did today a 40 minute gym session first but then shorten the run for 5 to 3 miles
That will still leave one 5 mile run and my MWLR the same
Colin I’m say i thinking about it mind you if i do how long it will last is another question
I´m missing my long runs! I never thought I would be saying that, because at times in my build up towards Brighton I had to be literally pushed out the door, but now I drive past roads that I used to run down and feel almost sad that I´m in the car and not running.
What time did you do Tenjiso?
How are you doing in your training Poohbear? You´ve been a bit quiet for a few days.
