SM6, well don for getting out there when you're feeling tired
NP, another good double, hope the appointment at the hospital went well
Fiona, well done for getting out when you didn't feel up to it, were you at JS last night?
Tek, it is amazing that most are getting out in the snow and ice over the last week, we have been very fortunate not to have any here
AGF, I hope you enjoyed your rest day
HM4, Hope you get out today
A four mile recovery run with JS last night, conditions were good, decided not to have another run after session, after the night's before effort, the legs were feeling fine but I thought they would appreciate an easier day
4m 45mins @11:11mm AVG142(74%)
Stewart - Nice run, and wise to give the legs an extra rest now and again.
Fiona - Well done on getting out
Tek - Nice long run
NP - Good running
Change of plan for me today. We have lying snow for the 1st time this morning, so decided to do recovery run to the gym, then weights. That ended up with me walking a mile and a half after coming to the conclusion that I was putting in too much effort (HR was over 160, for well over 11 minute miles), and I didn't really fancy falling either. I really hope it rains heavily tonight
Did not get to JS last night Stewart, not finished at the hairdressers til 7:30! I did go to the Leisure Centre to change then just ran round town for a bit.
Stuart shame about the snow, none here yet!
A rest day for me.
Enjoy your rest day Fiona. Rest is the underated part of training
I know what you mean about treacherous conditiona Stuart - ice here is awful - snow that has tired to slush and frozen = skating rink !!
Well done Stewart.
At least you made up for your cba witha swim today NP I decided to walk yesterday and let Lulu do all the running
However I have just taken her out for a lunchtime jog around the racecourse. Lovely. Did an hours running earlier today too. However not doing too much as I seem to have a head cold. It will pass I am sure !!
Enjoy your weekend running folks !
HM hope you got out today
Fiona thanks...nice easy run last night. Hope you enjoyed the rest day.
NP hope the arm's ok
Stewart well done on the easy run
Stuart sounds like a tough slog in the snow. Hope the weights session went better...
AGF nice running - hope you shake the cold quickly
Sports massage and 90 mins hot yoga this morning, followed by a 4 mile recovery run. Looks like more snow here tonight...
Stewart & Tek
Sadly no as I spent most of the day on the phone trying to sort out a delivery for hubby's new laptop as UPS/Apple screwed up! The laptop is now due to be delivered either Monday or Tuesday. I really hope it's going to be Monday as Chris has this day off as it's our first wedding anniversary.
Well done on everyone's training.
First of weekend's socialising tonight then plan is for swim and LSR tomorrow before nexr round of socialising.3 leaving dos this weekend - all for the same person - reflecting her various roles!Rained today and all snow now gone again
NN FionaC NP Tek good MLRs Wed/Thu followed by some shorter (recovery) runs Tek AGF FionaC SM6 StewartC. Seems to be a pattern here
That's the same with the paths round me which still have ice on.
Well still no snow here just more cold rain... off schedule today for the first time instead of MLR 11 miles I did a very easy 8.5 as I am bringing this weeks LSR forward to tomorrow so I can run with my club, they are doing 16, and I know it will be nearer my marathon pace rather than my LSR pace (that's why I don't run with them often) no one seems to be able to stick to the suggested pace and if I don't keep up I get lost !!! it will be good hard run though, to get me out of my comfort zone
Fiona - Hope you enjoyed the rest day
AGF - Well done on get out with the dog
Tek - Hope you the weather hasn't gotten worse down your way!
OH - Swim must have been a bit cold this morning!
MG - Good work on getting to the gym, hope the LSR goes well today
NP - Nice swimming
NN - Good luck with the quick long run
8.3 miles inc/ 26.26 parkrun. How I kept upright during that in an absolute miracle...
Gym soon, and weekly weigh in.
HM did it snow again down there? Froze overnight here...
OH sounds like a heavy weekend training
MG well done on another gym session...take care out there...
NP sorry to hear the arm's still painful
NN nice easy 8.5. Hope you survive today's Long Fast Run
Stuart well done on 8.3 including the ice-skating. Hope the weigh-in goes well...
Jason - are you ok?
2m warm up then 6m trail run with the club. Really icy and slippery. Hopefully it's going to rain later, which will clear the roads for tomorrow's club race.
No. It's nearly perfect winter running weather for me! Sunny & 3C. It could have done with being a bit warmer however you'd expect me to say that.
Well done guys. 1.27 miles in the bag for me this morning. Depending on weather tomorrow (and how my legs feel as I did run a bit too quickly) may do 2 miles.
Nice running yesterday AGF, I hope your head cold is better?
Well done on the icy run Teknik. Very icy here in places today but a stunning day, blue skies.
Sounds like a fun weekend OH
Did you get the long run MG1?
NP another great hill run and amazing recovery pace yesterday.
NN hope the long run goes well today. No harm changing the schedule to suit, I just use them as a very rough guide!
Stuart well done on the parkrun and good luck with the weigh in - you should do it after a long run
Well done on getting out HM4, will be great to get another one tomorrow!
21 miles for me this morning, just loved it - so sunny! Chilly and breezy but can't get much better for January. A fair bit of black ice but stayed on my feet. Av pace 8:16mm and felt relaxed all the way round. Happy.
HM well done for getting out
MG good long treddie run
Fiona fantastic 21 miler, great pace too.
NP - forgot to say LOL at your yoga image...I have to say, the first week, someone turned up in a bikini. Funnily enough, I haven't missed a session since...
Well done MG1, this is the first year (so far...touches wood!) that I've not done a 20 on the treadmill. In 2010/11 I did 3 but it's still good training.
NP/Teknik, had a laugh at the hot yoga image!
Done some baking....now to wash the car (never did get it washed over Xmas!)
Cross post Stewart, great PB!!
Great running everyone..
Fiona fabulous pace for that 21 well done you..
Stewrat congrats on the PB...especially if it was slippery
HM4 still chilly for you then..where do you live..?
MG1 impressive miles on the treadmill I dont think I could handle moe than 3-5 miles.
SM6 so is it still icy where you are ? hope the pounds are melting away even if the ice/snow isnt..
Tek just dont wear a thong !!
Beautiful day here at the moment in sunny Devon, lots of rain overnight though and more to come later.
20 miles done and dusted..2 hours 57 mins ..16miles with club then 4miles on my own I managed to pick the pace up from 9s average with club ( which is a bit better paced than usual) and managed to do the last 4 on my own a bit progressive .9.06...8.52..8.45..8.38..
Blimey - there has been some good running today.
Fiona - Wow - Have you ever been so good at this stage of your marathon campaign. Brilliant running,
Night Nurse - another great one. Do you think it helped running 16 with others. Great to still have speed at the end too!!
No Pain - its sounds like your afternoon shopping is going to painful ( for the wallet and min - lol ) Well done on your Sat hill run. Your certainly running strong !
Great PB Stewart - Nice to see you smash expectations !
MG - well done on the treddie run. Needs must and that will certainly make you stronger !
Stuart/Tek, well done on your 8 milers. Souns like you both struggled with Ice etc.
HM -well done for getting out and running !
I still have the head cold fiona, despite going to bed at 8pm last night . That combined with very icy pavements etc made me decide to run indoors at the Gym. Banged out the 20 miler quite slowly as I wanted to run within myself. So probably all Under 70% MHR - but hopefully that means it will help with the body adaptions. Will need to do some Long runs with MP pace nearer the time !
Comfort food tonight. Sausage Chips and Beans Why not - earnt it
NP - I think I got a PB today 2°C!LOL at hot yogaWell done on hill run in black ice today - hope the views were worth it
NN All our snow gone (into the sea perhaps)Good you were able to get out yesterdayToday's 20 sounds impressive(I never run as fast on my own)SM6 still icy with you then? Well DoneTek rain on our compacted snow made it lethal for a day
HM4 Good you've managed to get out
MG1 25k on dreadmill sounds devoted!StewartC Well done on PB (a while since I've done my one and only 5k - no park runs here)AGF 20 mile dreadmill - devotion again!
Managed another 18 miles after my chill swim. All snow gone now but hail showers and a brisk wind to contend with.Next round of Socialathon coming on ...
Petersfield (north east Hampshire).
I think I should be okay for 2 miles. I've also got Monday & Tuesday off so I'm hoping to get out then.
Thanks guys & well done on everyone's training today.
