4.7 miles in light/intermittent snow early this morning, nice and easy. Upper body weights done a couple of hours later with a few miles on the bike thrown in there too. Now to relax for the rest of the day!
33.7 miles for the week, and will push towards 37-38 next week, starting with 12-13 tomorrow
NP- Glad you enjoyed the show and got in and out ok
Tek- nice frost free running
Hi Misty and welcome aboard
Cold but sunny day here today and I just had the best possible combination- my easiest 20m training run and one of my fastest- found myself looking at my watch in disbelief in the final miles as I rolled along effortlessly (ok on a bit of a downhill) at 6.3x pace lol! 20.01m in 2.18.39 (6.56av) splits: 7:31 7:25 7:26 7:19 7:15 7:12 7:11 7:14 7:07 7:06 6:50 6:47 6:40 6:39 6:31 6:34 6:38 6:32 6:27 6:13 2 Very happy
Some excellent long runs Yesterday - Well done Fiona et al.
Sounds like a good race Tek.....speed in the legs
Hello Misty and welcome. Thats geat progress in your second Marathon. Hopefully youcan keep the injuries away and improve again
Nice Running Stuart. Sounds like your building nicely.
"easy and fast" - I bow to you jason. Well done with your 20. brilliant in fact.
I took Lulu for a early monring joglet and then cam back - made breekkie for the miss's and got back into bed for a lay-in Then ran a MLR this afternoon. Thats 3 this week that means I did my longest ever week of 70 Miles. Very Happy
Misty welcome - you'll get some advice and loads of chat on here
Stuart nice run and cross training. Keep building and good luck tomorrow
jason excellent running!! Great total.
AGF great running and well done on a big week's total
Stewart well done on the 14 miler
Got to 60 miles here this week (without a long run yet)
Teknik you have to go see the show I thought Hugh Jackman was out standing and so was Anne Hathaway where outstanding, if you have seen the show on stage this is as good, Russle Crew was ok but his voice was just not strong enough. Well done on a solid weeks training.
Misty welcome to the thread my middle son is type 1 diabetic on insulin so I know you cant just go mad on carbs. Wouldn't the heel injury be better treated if you went the other way with your trainers and went for a min/shoe so you had to run on the forefoot? also off road running will also help.
SM6 well done on the 5 miles and 33 mile week not nice out today.
Jason another fantastic long run in the bank thats very impressive splits at this stage of training, 2:3**
AGF You need to change that nme to Am Fitter well done on your two runs and 70 miles for the week, I also think your looking at a break through PB this year.
SC Well done on the 14 miles nice running.
Well first 20 mile run for VLM in the bank, this run had it all but sunshine and heat, lots of hills, mud, water, rain, hail and snow very cold towards the end but happy with the effort off road.
Well done on your 14 Stewart,
Well done too No Pain. Super running !!! Thanks too...although I am still getting fitter Hopefully I will see further improvement and beat 3:30 if I can stay fit !!
BT - I too Like les miserable - have seen the show 3 times. Always makes me smile when I watch france play rugby too - the national anthem itself is a great one. As for the Show - "do you hear the people sing" - brilliant !!
Jason how do your splits at this stage compare to your PB marathon? your running so well at the moment mate.
Great pace on the run Teknik and great miles with out a long run!!
As NP says jason you are running so well, great to see all the hard work pay off and this is just the start!
Good cross training and running Stuart, no snow here, just ice!
Fantastic weekly mileage AGF and jason it's not too late to do the 0.06! A mere 62.70 for me but happy with that.
Nice running of the half course Stewart, I always forget where it goes after Green Drive!
Sounds like a really interesting 20 NP, great running the day after hill work!
Well done on the XC OH.
Blimey it's busy here!! 5 miles easy for me - I must be the thread slacker!!
Looking forward to another week's training! Stay injury free all!
HI & welcome to the thread.
Well done on everyone's training.
Evening Tek looks like you got some speed back in the legs nice pace for that 7.5Misty ..The duchy marathon fr a first attempt !!that was in at the deep end , I have done the 20 a couple of times, giving it a miss this year its the same day as Bideford Half which I shall do insteadSM6 good running .nice to see the mileage creeping upJason awesome splits as per usual fabulous runningAGF great mileage...that lovely lab must be pretty fit too Stewart well done on the 14...but I did did shake my head and sigh at those words I didnt bother to keep HR under 75%...I will be reporting you the Hadd thread !! but there are plenty of good runners that dont use that hr thing anyway...I know NP thinks its a load of carp !!NP lucky you getting the first 20 done...I was tempted to make mine a 20 today..but stuck to the plan...well nearly I did 18.5Fiona..we will let you off the only 5 miles ...you are doubling all week and a very impressive long run n the bag already !!
I really didnt feel like running 18 miles when I got up at 2 oclock...but didnt actually feel too bad after a mound of shreddies and a couple cups of coffee
Hilly first 7 miles....to get them out the way..then gently undulating....should have been 18 but was 18.35 when I git home OCD took over and had to make it up to 18.5,
hard to run it progressively due to the hills but HR nice and low 72.7%
9.47..9.41..9.40..9.30..9.31..9.27..9.27..9.23..9.21..9.19..9.21..9.16..9.23..9.21 ..9.15..9.10..9.12..9.05.. 4.30
66.9 miles for the week arrrrrggghhh I wish I had known that..I would have made todays 18.6
Jason thanks, I pushed HR up for last few miles , but made sure it didnt go over 80% and was pleased how strong I was feeling on the hills towards the end.
AGF yes I am feeling good at the moment P&Ding seems to be paying off
NP if I hadnt already showered I would be out the door for another .1
Stewart - I chickened out of the LSR - now planned for Thursday
NP well done on the first 20 miler
AGF - sub 3:30 then GFA in October?
Mace well done on week 5 - enjoy the cut-back week
OH good XC running
Jason that's a great training pace improvement
Fiona nice easy 5m
NN well done on the controlled 18.5m. Good HR average...nice week's total
Snowed only a little here, but enough to put me off a long run, plus I thought that a tempo and long run back-to-back would be asking for trouble. So just a slow 4m recovery this morning at 69%max.
