Todays lyrics: 'Tonights the night, night. Lets live it up.'
Yesterdays lyrics: Tears For Fears and 'Everybody wants to rule the world.'
Why: I enjoy it.
Right coffee and catch up ,
postie - you've helped me to be sensible, thank you. Was getting twitchy and thinking of going for a swim or even a little run today - after all I've managed a whole two days of rest - but there was a good reason to take the four days so I will contain myself.
What: nothing but smtWhy: recoveryLast hard: 21/10Last rest: 23/10
Lyrics - yes.
What: I really need to go for pacy little 3-4 miler
Why: taper week... and not done anything since Saturday
Last hard: I think last Saturday's 9 miler should count.
Last rest: ever since
Lyrics: I can sing them, I can sing (and "hear") the lines that follow. But I haven't yet worked out what the song is. Frustrating!
Good restraint LMH, must be hard but definitely worth it in the long run. Hi Night Nurse.
What: Home Run. Why: I'm moving next month and this route takes me almost directly from current work to new home. Shame I'll only be in the job til December. Last hard: Sunday 10 miles.Last rest: Yesterday. Lyrics: Yes.
hello all, lyric - like others, think I do, but not immediately obviousRe time on feet. Spent most of working life in a chair, but did have an 18mth period in a different role that involved lots of walking about from dept to dept, time on feet etc. So spent I reckon 50% of my time stood up. Was about a stone lighter and ran my fastest halfMs, marathons and 10ks at the time. However this was local, so had max 8hr work day, and commute of 8 miles (each way) was train (if lazy) or bike/run, unlike now, with 70-80 minute commute each way , and ~9-10 hour working day....I digress....last nights club session was 250m hill loop (on grass), with 100m recovery x15Tiring to say the least, but wore spikes so at least I didnt slide everywhere.However, I felt the niggle in my hamstring re-lurk from a few weeks back, so today...what - possibly 6 easy lunchtime + QoP tonight (scheduled appointment)why - recovery + screaming last hard - I think that may be todaylast rest - saturday
lmh, you will be glad of that restrain I bet!
lyrics same as everyone, Iknow I will kick myself!
just over half a pound off again this week, slowly slowly...
what: 4 miles d&d, 10.08, 9.48, 9.24 and last mile 9.08, I am a weird runner! I always get faster, and its takes me a while to get going!
why: it was there to be done
last hard: this morning mile one!
last easy: yesterday
have a good day all
What: 22-mins gentle treadmill session.
Why: Just warming my legs back up after post-marathon rest period.
Lyrics: Unfortunately yes. Song was once played eight times in a three hour pub shift I worked. Fun!
wabo: not weird - I call that progressive running LMH: rest up until you properly feel like doing something. ale: more recovery wishes for you!NN and others: can well imagine shift work playing havoc with run performance. I notice when I work late (not shifts, just long hours) that I run badly. Well, I may have to ditch my 10k plans for the weekend. My attempt at some 10k pace didn't go to plan. Left hamstring and calf twinges that got gradually worse. Plan was 6 x 3 mins @ 10k pace but I had to bail after 5. There's another 10k on November 4. Hopefully my body will cooperate with me doing speedwork then What: see above - an attempt to do 10k paceWhy: it's been a whileLast hard: todayLast rest: yesterdayLyrics: yes
update: 6 done along the Thames , with hamstring behaving itself, although a bit achey now.and lyric penny has dropped...."they're only easy if you know them" - as they say
What: 3.5 km run 2 min walk 1 with core afterwardsWhy: getting back into it and slowly does itLast hard: not just running today!
Wabo: good work on the weight loss LMH Im glad you're still restingAle just take it easy, fingers crossed tomorrow will be better.
Have a good one all
Ewan: I mis-read that and thought you'd done a 22 Mile Treadmill Session !
Glad lyrics are 'bugging' people today.
ale: all the bAst for tomorrow.
That should read. All the best for tomorrow.
What time are you off tomorrow Alehouse?
Keep an eye on the hamstring Dustin. Did you find an autumn marathon to aim for in the end?
emzap - sounds very sensible.
Well done on the weightloss Wabo.
GGG - are you changing jobs then?
RW - keep reining yourself in, you want to feel full of bounce on the b of the bang!
chickadeee - but I do feel like doing something, I just know that whilst I could it probably wouldn't be the best thing for my legs. Mind you they were much better at the massage today than they were at the one before the marathon!
OH - not nice when work gets in the way.
Lyrics - think so
What - 8.5m steadyWhy - Club RunLast hard - MonLast rest - Sun
LMH - work not much better for tomorrow: primary care on call finishes 18:00 then CPD meeting begins 20:00 - just enough time to fit in run with JS and something to eat!Alehouse hope it will all be good news tomorrow although I suspect it will be longer to get a definitive answer
Probably staying at home this weekend (rather than 17.46k at Culloden)
LMH and RW recovering and tapering are the hardest part of a marathon arent they ? but there is a reason for it.
LMH my schedule does a kind of reverse taper as the recovery period over 5 weeks (seems ages )
Hope the hammys hold up Dustina and Chick
Alehouse take care and all the best for tomorrow
Wabo well done on the weight loss I am hoing to shift a few lbs between now and VLM just to help with my time I am well within normal BMI 22 but feel 5-7 lbs will make all the difference how much have you lost so far ?
Talking of treadmill running (EwanG 87) has anyone used a treadmill for quality sessions and had success ? I was thinking of doing my tempo runs and marathon paced sections of my long runs on a treadmill just to make sure I keep the right pace,I did read that if you set it on a 1-2% incline it gives a more realistic pace making up for lack of wind resistance
What :11.2 miles in 1 hours 45 all easy sub 70% HR
Why : back to basics for a few weeks and I love that kind of running
Last Hard : 21/10/12
Last rest : 20/10/12
