Well done Emmy! Now get that Flu beaten off.
Waves back to FF!
Emmy- 13???!! I shall live my spring marathon (s) through you this year as there is a distinct lack of one on my calendar this year.....
Yay Emmy - congrats on being picked.
I'll follow this thread with great interest
Emmy, I've just done my 14th of the year, and I know it's not the same for everyone but it's really slowed me down, in the summer I seemed to always be tapering or recovering (which I didn't do properly) but it might work for you, it does for others. If you decide to do the Eco Trail let me know and I'll try and lend some advice, they definitely do not serve wine, just the most disgusting flavour electrolyte I have ever tasted. Really interested in your friend trying out paleo, I've given it a whirl but am too chicken not to carb load and take gels in race. Have a great Christmas, don't get too drunk and enter any more races though.
Emmy do you record your run data anywhere, Garmin connect, Fetch etc?? just looking for an idea of training times over race times per mile.
Hi Flatfooted- i've tried to use Strava but it's not connecting very well with my garmintrainer data and it keeps refusing the data. I'll see if i can upload it again and send you the link. I was keeping to Shades advice for training times:
Recovery: MP less 90secs/2 minsLong: MP less 30-90 secsEasy: MP less 30-60 secsTempo: 1m easy, Xm@10km/Half mara pace, 1m easyFartlek: 1m easy, Xm fartlek, 1m easy
MP was 10.45mm for Amsterdam.
If you want - I can send you what was my proposed plan for 2013 and you can let me know what you think?
@Tenijso - Here's the recipe I mentioned
Low GI flapjacks- makes about 24
Printed! Thanks Emmy.
Looks like something I could have a go at making with the kids, when I'm feeling brave. Then in future I could simply give my daughter the ingredients and wait for my treats. She's nearly five now, so it's time she started looking after me.
Have a great Christmas!
Hi all, this is a shout out to any person more technically minded than myself
I've tried uploading all of the data from my Garmin training centre to Strava so that FF can see it... it works for some but not for others. I get the error message: file empty. But when I look in the garmin training centre - all of the data is there and I can see it 'as it should'.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Emmy - I am on Garmin Connect as apposed to Garmin Training Centre. On Connect you can add people to a list so they can view your training runs; go into My Profile Privacy to change your settings to whoever you want to view your stuff
I went out for my first run since the flu. It was 3 miles and just a very gentle run but it felt great to be out there and I don't feel any worse for it. Definitely a bonus!
glad to see that you managed to get out there.........take it easy
Emmy - I have logged on to Garmin connect this morning to see the following message displayed - "We have resolved the issues that some of you were experiencing when trying to upload data via the ANT Stick". Maybe that was the cause of your problem.
Hi Carter - Thanks for that. I'll try and give it a go when I can next get on the 'main' computer. Currently Mr.Emmy is occuping it!
I'm unfortunately too stubborn to have man flu
@FF - I'm planning to do a test run tomorrow of 10-12 miles at 11.30 pace to see how I get on and gauge how back to fitness I am before the Enigma Double next weekend. What do you think?
Emmy, saw this and thought of you
Well now that that is out of the way......
How did the run go Em? Any issues?
How are you planning to attack the double next week? What i would like is two steady times rather then one a lot faster then the other, With this many maras planned for the year we need to injury proof you, I would like to acheive this with back to back runs and double run days.
So rather then one LSR at a weekend (say an 18 miler), would look for two LSR's of 15 miles on consecurtive days.
This will take more time but running on tired legs will prepare them for the year.
Out of interest do you have a Parkrun near you?
Like it, how about switching the two around from time to time so every other weekend your longer run is on the sunday.
Sat 10 mile
3 x miles at 11mm4 x miles at target race pace + 15 seconds3 x miles at 11mm
Sunday 18 miler
it takes a bit of discipline, we can then reverse this and add a longer RP+ part in the sat run say 3*11mm, 9*RP+15, 3*11mm.
Glad to see the weekend runs went well.......
If your feeling good, go with the tempo, would love to see a quick 3rd mile, post you splits on here after the run.
