I think it ought to happen in October, Muddy. With the Govt plan to have offered a vaccine to every adult by mid September (though I think that could happen sooner as they ramp this up knowing it's the fastest way out of this) if that doesn't allow us to return to normal then I'm at a loss as to how we will!
Another 50m week last week. Decent tempo Friday, 8m alternating between mp and hmp. The hmp reps surprised me coming in at 6.05s and based on both feel and HR, that was about right. 6.25mm average for the session for a low 157bpm. Yesterdays 15 was very comfortable at 7.45 average for a 139bpm, so within my recovery range.
Fairly similar week again this week.
Thanks, Skinny...…..wanders off rolling sleeves up ready to draft!
Kristoffer- I think Skinny and Muddy have said it all. I would just add, most people grossly overestimate the calorie burn from exercise. I am sure you are aware of the common view that a lb of fat contains 3500. In my last marathon I just about got through that many. I'm sure you can imagine. I'm sure you can work out that in 30 mins you aren't burning that many. Of course there are some on-going physiological adaptions that will help you burn calories when not running, but fundamentally the best way to lose weight is in the kitchen.
If I had a choice between forever running in winter or summer, I would be winter hands down.
muddy, yes, unfortunately there will have to be tolerance in society. I guess though it's like anything else in life. We know that many driving fatalities happen in the 14-25 age group, however society tolerates it as the benefits outweigh it on balance. My neighbour has been off work since March, having had covid early on (he's a teacher) and is mid to late 30s. The on-going issues and the fact nobody has the answers is a huge drain on him.
Session day today, 3 x 2m at 10k effort off 2 mins. First pair were straight into wind and came out 6.05 and 6.04. Then I had a tailwind and came in 5.51 and 5.58, finally I had a mix of both and came in 5.53 and 6mm. With walked recoveries I covered exactly 10k in 39.57 and 6.26mm average pace.
Skinny, when I was injured over the Spring/Summer and I couldn't do a thing I put on a stone in no time. However, I am not sure that was just down to not exercising. My whole dietary discipline went and I was drinking more than I would normally as it was inconsequential as not only did I not have to suffer a run after, I wasn't having to get up and out for work etc.
Slightly tired legs today. At some point i'll head out into the storm for an easy 9.
...and my wife wanting to workout
Bad luck , Mace, hope you all recover well!
Hope you had goodluck, Skinny!
Muddy, yes on balance I believe it will cancel, however, if I am marathon ready i also feel I can find something late April or early May.
Kept the 9m very easy yesterday, average bpm 134 which for me is right down in the recovery zone. Easy 4m today and a bit of time on the turbo trainer.
