Nice stats Stewart and well done getting out when you did not feel like it, that takes a lot!
Fab mileage AGF! Not so sure about my 50 mile weeks being in PB territory! The autumn marathon is just for fun but hopefully some of the benefits will carry to VLM14.
Teknik/Jason sounds like more sleep is the way forward. 5-6 hours last night and felt it on tonight's run.
OH I certainly hope it is! A bit breezy tonight and I'm just rubbish running into the wind. Still looking forward to the day out!
10 miles tonight with 6 around MP (those miles av 7:20mm) overall av 7:29mm. Happy with that given how breezy it is.
I hope NP has not been moving tons of concrete again today!!
Lol Fiona yep after taking another couple of tons to the tip I got a 10 ton skip delivered all I have to do now is fill it up feeling a little bit better today will run a short tempo run tomorrow and concrete breaking if weather permits.
Fiona great running 10 with. 6 at MP well impressed
Jason great double mate.
OH great days running sir.
HM4 well done for getting out.
Jim nice bike ride love the speed.
Teknik nice running, the OHhas now come down with the cold
AGF great weeks running enjoy your second run of the day.
Sc well. Done on the long run.
Well done on everyone's training. Back to work for me today - a nice late start, it's a shame that it means a late finish, however not working this weekend so a nice short week again.
IJ LoL...nice biking
HM well done on the easy 4.35m
OH well done on the hilly 12.6m
Jason great news on the bling and nice double recovery yesterday
Fiona great pace on that 10 miler !
NP glad you're felling a little better - hope the tempo goes ok
MG nice tempo run - shocking news though
13.1m for me this morning, mostly sub70% max but a few blips uphill. MP run tomorrow...
Tek - Nice 13 today, enjoy the MP run tomorrow.
MG - That's terrible stuff. Good running though.
NP - Hope your feeling better.
Fiona - Good running yesterday, very nice pace
Jason - Good running, and good to hear that you'll get your bling eventually
OH - Sounds like a tough route you ran yesterday
AGF - Great total for last week!
Stewart - Good long run, and nice number for the month Building up nicely for Loch Ness.
4.6 miles @ 9:30 ave for me today. Legs felt like lead. Something fast tomorrow.
Thanks & well done to you.
Well done on everyone's training.
rolling hills tonight with the club - my usual running buddies set off without me as I needed to pee and it took 3/4 mile to catch them! they then didn't even keep up with me so I ended up pushing the pace for the whole run. 10k in 59 mins - the fastest I've ever done those hills! scary considering I've done sub 46 mins on the flat!
hopefully LSR tomorrow, 9 at marathon pace on Thursday and 6 steady on Friday. Yeah, right!
Happy midweek, folks!
NP I hope you held back on the concrete breaking!
MG1 scary stuff and it's not even dark nights! Nice tempo running and well done on the gym work.
Teknik nice long run. Nice number too!
Stuart good day for a shorter run.
OH the forecast is pretty dire for the weekend. Bad enough on the run but not looking forward to the ferry. At least I'll be easy to recognise, I'll be as green as a frog.
Nice way to get revenge on them IJ!
8 miles with the group tonight with 2 minute efforts on the way back. Good fun.
MG1 I bought Brooks Puredrift shoes at the weekend. Very light!! Paid £30 as they were down to £50 and I had a voucher from the Skye half. They have pink laces.
Nice laces Fiona
MG that's horrible Last week a local boy of 13 went up on the roof of a derelict flour mill down the road from me. He was fetching his ball and ended up falling through the roof. Sadly he passed away a couple of days later My boys aren't much younger and it makes you think.
Well all the great training from you lot is making me feel a bit guilty at the moment. Had a couple of near CNBA misses last week , struggled on the weekend long run, and this morning the CNBA fairy finally got me. I think I need a couple of days off.
plan a couple of days off and it doesn't count as CBA, mace, so you're okay... sometimes we're a bit keen to overdo it!
Stuart nice easy 4.6m - hope the legs are better today
OH LOL. Sounds like you're enjoying your week away, despite the weather.
MG well done on the gym work. I've converted to Brooks Ghost 5 for the last few months, so I'd be interested to hear how you find the new ones.
IJ nice hill running. Hope the LSR goes ok today.
Fiona good run with the group last night. mmm pink laces
mace - I agree with IJ
MaraHR run today. I messed up the Garmin reset after the warm-up, but after tidying up the data, I averaged 8:02mm for 7m with the HR levelling out below 80%max - 3 seconds improvement and about 4 beats lower.
HI guys, on my phone so hard to reply to all.
all is well but using time working away to get some miles in. A few doubles sees me at 39 miles for the last 3 days... Now I need food
AGF - Good running for the last few days
Tek - That's a good run today, things are moving the right way!
Mace - A couple of CBA days are needed now and then.
Fiona - That looks a nice speedy session last night, well done.
Seem to have hurt my back at work last night Probably ok to run, but decided to leave it tonight and watched the end of the tennis instead. I think that's 2 weeks in a row my 2 rest days have been used by Wednesday...
lovely 10.3 this evening, though it was rather humid, my hayfever was screaming and my left hip and glutes not entirely happy either! did 10 mins stretches in the gym afterwards so it should be not so bad in the morning.
mace agree with others, sounds like you need a few days rest to come back stronger.
Teknik nice improvement there.
AGF that's a lot of miles and a decent mileage IJ.
OH I used to be out in boats a lot when scuba diving so I hope I'm still ok but it's been a while! The 2 guys I'm heading across with have cooked breakfasts on the boat.
Stuart, sensible move. I should have done the same. After the 10m with MP Monday and fast bits last night I felt like I could not move and HR was too high on my 'easy' 6m.
MG, shocking! it is hard to believe
Fiona, nice to get some new trainers, sounds like you had a good js run last night, I hope the easy 6 loosened you up a little
Mace, having a day off is a good thing you be the fresher for it
IJ, nice 10 hope the stretching has done the job
Tek, a speedy MP run, looking good
AGF, a good three days worth of training,
OH, Sounds like you're enjoying your trip to Harris
SM, hope the back is better and the rest has done it some good
JS run last night took the 5 mile group, manage to throw in a couple of hills into the run brole it up quite nicely
LT run tonight 9 miles in total with a 2 mile warm up and cool down, first three miles of the LT section into a stiff breeze
Tues: 5.59mi, 59:13, @ 10:36mm, 145(77%)
Wed: 5mi 41:54, @ 8:22mm, 164(86%)
AGF nice block of running over the last 3 days
OH thanks, and well done on the hill walks
Stuart ouch, hope the back feels a little better today
IJ nice 10 miler. I'm suffering with the hay fever too. Hope your glutes / hip feel easier this morning.
Fiona nice easy 6m - a good night's sleep hopefully will fix it
Stewart well done on the JS run and nice pace for yesterday's tempo
MG nice double. I'm jealous of the new Ghosts now, having stocked upon the 5's. As for the MP improvement, I'll take the 3 seconds a week - with 16 weeks to go that puts me in GFA territory !
Pumped up after this morning's LSR - 17.5m, av. HR 72% of max., drift manageable, and only blipped over 75% in the last mile or so - av. pace was 8:49mm
A very good couple of runs there Stewart.
Good news on the shoes MG1, I might take a look at them. Also a very impressive double!
Also impressive LSR for a weekday Teknik!
Sore throat today and feeling off colour. Decided I'll rest tonight as no point doing another sub standard run and feeling bad. Hope the rest fixes it! Got a whole new range of blisters last night. My orthotics are 6 years old and done every run so time for a new pair.
still tight-ish hips and glutes today, but only walking round work; I've got 90 mins between work and the club run so hope to get to the gym (upstairs, between work and carpark!).
17 on a Thursday morning, Teknik? wow! great running!
Hope that eases soon.
Fingers crossed for a GFA.
Hope that doesn't turn into a cold. I think when I had nhs orthotics I was told to get them checked every 2 years.
Well done on everyone's training. I managed to get out for 2.45 miles after work today.
HM - Well done on the run
Fiona - Sounds like a good idea to have the night off!
Tek - That's a great run this morning
MG - Good work on the double run!
Stewart - Couple of good runs there
IJ - Nice 10 yesterday
6.3 very windy miles for me tonight. Should have been a faster run, but decided I'll just tear round parkrun on Saturday for my dose of speed this week.
20 mins stretching in the gym then 9 miles XC with the club. Lovely!
