Brer- Hot chocolate!
OH- Never mind Pen y Pass, worry about Bwlch y Groes
panad- good running
What a day here! This morning I managed 0.1m before realising that the roads and pavement were lethally slippery- and no sign of grit Plan B came into operation- a mind-numbing 6.5ish miles of laps of a very muddy football pitch in the dark. This evening I did a tad over 7m recovery again, this time in a RIDICULOUS wind.
Still - on a positive, 13.46m for the dayand sees me pass the 400m for the month point
lol Bwlch y Groes..ho, ho. ho...such joy
Panad...in shorts, I trust?
Holy hell, been to Spin tonight for 'kick ass' session, my legs have officially fallen out with me! Sustained snow running/dog walking and spinning is rendering them unable to connect with brain!!
JD..loving the thought of 'Sir' caning around a muddy pitch in darkness before putting on respectable teacher mode! Do your pupils realise what a nutter you are?
Can picture Pen y Pass but not Bwlch y Groes (yet)
That's a cue for steve-z's photo. I wonder were it is?
brer - what Hardmoors distance is that again? Metal studs?? For your knees' sake don't use them on hard surfaces.
jenf - excellent thinking
All that snow. Gone.
Just Google Imaged Bwlch y GroesAh well Langdale should be good training ground in September
... but work imposed slack week at present
Recovery skins arrived today can't wait to try them out! I look just like the model on the box!!
Hey JD, just 'weaved' a 10 miler in lashing wind and rain..but..phew, it was warm!
Trex..I can only think that I will ever wear them again when situation is just straightforward trail on firm mud/snow. To be fair, breaking in a new pair of trainers on a 18 mile run which was so ridiculous in its extremes is not a good way to judge them. Hardmoors 26.2 Osmotherly in Feb is where they will hopefully come into their own..but really hope it doesn't come to that!
jenf..what does the model look like?
12 miles around Barking & Ilford last Saturday including parkrun... Furthest I've run since SNOD 2012... Knack'd and could barely walk the dogs Saturday evening...
Sunday out for 10k leisurely amd 7 last night at pace with club... A couple of new runners turned up and they were a bit fast and didn't know the route so we all got red-mists and legged it... Nicely slowing down from 7mm to 8mm for me...
Reps on Thursday and 16 incl parkrun on Saturday... 10k on Sunday recovery run...
SNOD not sold out yet, but nearing 2000 entries...
8x2min intervals for me today.. why does speed HURT so much! anyway I am now sitting in my new recovery skins, will be interested to see how legs feel later.
Brer..classy is the answer!!
Brer- well weaved
Lemmy- nice running
jenf- great speedwork- pain is temporary, pride is forever
Somebody was smiling on me this morning as I drove down to my usual morning run route- it threw it down with massive hailstones, covering the road in seconds and my wipers were struggling to cope. I felt pretty anxious sat inside in my shorts... by the time I ran it had turned to rain and stopped within 10 mins of my 6.5m recovery. PHEW! This evening my achilles were still a bit sore after Sunday's bashing, so I treated them with doing my 15m ML run on the nice soft track. They loosened up enough for me to be able to run the last 6m at pMP, fairly comfortably. Very happy with this run 15.01m in 1.41.24 (6.45 av) splits: 7:10 7:19 7:21 7:23 7:08 7:08 7:12 6:58 6:48 6:13 6:10 6:07 6:10 6:09 6:02 4
1.01m warm down to round off the day's activities
I love it when a plan comes together
6:02? That's starting to get very serious.
My mile PB is 6:06.
What are you doing in Langdale, OH?
That's January out the way, with 202.5 miles on the board and feeling strong.
Also have binned the alcohol, crisps and soft fizzy drinks all month
Weight is about 6 lbs to the good.
Hope everbodies training is going well?
FR- good luck with the monastic life Well done on the weight loss
Ended the month quietly here with a couple of sloooow recovery runs
Monthly stats: 454.41m in 58.21.09 (7.42 av) Nearly 50m down on last year, but quite a bit quicker- not training for an ultra this year! At least, not this side of Snod.....
Blimey, that's amazing mileage jason!
Oh..how I hate you Jason My stats at the end of January..a measly 243 miles, you sure know how to make a girl feel inadequate. BTW..are you doing Abingdon? Entries open tomorrow..so close to Snod...oh, Liverpool or Abingdon????
FR..no beer?..I'm off for a bottle of Fosters buddy!
Club reps last night, 4x10mins with 2min rests... rep pace: 07:02, 07:13, 07:24, 07:35... They said do 10k pace and I did: started off too fast and slowed down...
Jason d, you've got nothing to worry about here...
Monthly mileage of 87 miles, which is the longest since September when I was training for SNOD12... A third of Brer's and a fifth of Jason's... I'm please with this due to 2 sprained ankles in December and no mid week running in October & November due to ITB issues (I'd pulled an adductor...)... So now back on track, just seem to have a dodgy ankle and pf... heels sting a bit before I stretch out or walk a bit...
16 tomorrow, to, from and including Valentines parkrun, then 6 on Sunday before going to XC to support Mrs Lemmy...
Have a good weekend everyone...

Just planning doing the half (for the 3rd time)
Hiya TR 40, I'm not entirely sure how the hell I managed it TBH..lots of snow running. I am in for Abingdon marathon for a last ditch attempt at sub 3:30 before my little body says " you're 47 this is getting too much! However..Snod a week later..so that will be a jolly jaunt instead of time targets now. Mr Rex..are you still doing Abingdon?
well first thing to report is I love my skins! wore them after a fast interval session and then slept in them last night after some heavy weights/leg session. NO DOMS!!
Jason/Brer, thats some impressive mileage. Great running. I'm no where near your league, but I'm very happy to have broken the100miles this month and feeling good.
Looking forward to parkrun tomorrow, sun is forecast!
Why is it always agonising watching Wales?
Enjoyed parkrun this morning, got myself a new PB, I was inspired by the runner in front of me who was pushing a buggy! I was determined not to let him get away!!
I can't bear to watch any longer, all through my childhood I watched the greats..JPR et al with a bottle of shandy and packet of crisps in hand..what an era! We lived in a very English village and were immigrants from God's country, we relished it when we thrashed the English..sorry, dont mean to offend anyone! I'm sure we are going to get a real ass-kicking from England when they meet.
Well, a steady 20 miles for me today..no drama, no ice, no snow and it only took 3 and a bit hours.
Well done jenf on PB, never been to a Parkrun so don't know what it involves.
