That's one cute photo & dog. Agree with Fiona .
Good luck. The Hellrunner races are meant to be tough.
Well done on everyone's training.
AGF we like the pictures of Lulu!
last XC yesterday. Quiet running fortnight ahead (determined by work) although hopefully will get out next weekend again
Jason - Well done on the race+extras, sounds a tough course
Mace - Well done for at least getting out there. Sounds like a few rest days are in order though!
KAz - 57 miles walked is seriously good going!
AGF - Good running, and nice picture of the dog
NP/Tek/Fiona/AGF/Jason - nice mileages for the week
17.3 miles @ 9.17 for me today. Would have been slightly easier if I hadn't eaten a mountain of porridge 45 minutes before going out...
47.5 miles for the week, aiming for 53ish this week including a 20 on Sunday or Monday.
mace - sounds like a proper lurgy - rest up mate
Fiona super mileage and pace!!
jason sound advice
AGF nice double (esp after the 20 miler); great week's total and I love the Lulu piccie.
NP super week's mileage in and out of the pool
OH well done on the cross country
Stuart nice long run - good week's total
HM Happy Anniversary
Went out this morning for a slow 4m in case I CBAd on tonight's run to and from yoga. With the rain and howling wind outside...sofa calling...
Yes. I got out before all the rain - it's been raining constantly from about 1pm. My legs were feeling quite heavy this morning, however 3 days in a row after 3 weeks of not running isn't a very good idea. Depending on the weather I'm going to try & get out tomorrow as I've also got that day as holiday.
A 5 mile brisk walk this afternoon with a 1 mile jog tagged onto the end. All ok, no pain but it was only a mile!! But its a start.
NP_ nice mileage and swimming
Fiona- who's mad? Nice mileage
kaz- well done
MG1- good core work
Tek- nice running and sofaing
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 6.5ishm 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 cause today and sees me pass the 400m for the month point
Amazing mileage jason, I'm hoping to get past 300 in January!!
Great that you've been out the last 3 days HM4 and Happy Anniversary.
Well done on the long run Stuart, especially on a Monday!
Teknik sometimes an easy day does you more good than a really miserable run.
Great that you got a short run kaz.
Another great day's training NP!
MG1 nice cross training, some weights for me tomorrow.
4 miles easy this morning then tonight 8 miles with 3 lots of 2 miles at 6:26mm pace off 3 minute recoveries.
Indeed, edited to remove that as I can be so negative! Trying to be more positive
There really is some serious mileage going on from everyone..I should get to 283 by the end of January my highest EVER and up till now not a session missed on the P&D schedule,
Kaz that is some serious walking..how many hours did that all add up to ?SM6 nice pace for that 17 miler and what else were you meant to eat before ? I run so I can eat mountains of porridge..lol
mace we all know we shouldnt run...but we have all run we should have rested .take care and get well soon
Hm4 3 days on the trot fab great stuff hope you can make it 4
Tek we all deserve a few hours on the sofa, I bet most of us here spend very little time sat doing nothing...enjoy it when you can
AGF what gorgeous pics of lulu so shiny black I bet you feel dead proud when you are ot showing her off, well done on getting so any miles done, with and without her
Jason I wouldn't enjoy doing those laps but if it were the choice of that or a treadmill I would take the laps..mud and all
Fiona , tonight session sounds interesting hope it went well?
NP nice days training running and swimming, swimming is the one thing that I haven't done so much of since starting this schedule I just don't have the time to run and swim now.
I managed to get an easy 5 in tonight , I was prepared to take an extra rest day as I worked last night and picked my grandson up on the way home and had him all day so his mum could work..( the only person in the world I would miss a sleep for ).but the little dear did have a nap and a cuddle with me this afternoon..so I was a bit refreshed and got out for 50 mins or so once he went home
Absolutely dreading tomorrows 10 miles with 5@LT its going to be blowing a hooly and piddling down !!
Jason, almost 90 miles in a recovery week, awesome, well done getting another double done in treacherous conditions
Mace, hope you've recovered and feeling better today
Kaz, 57 miles walking, very impressive, well done with the walk and jog session today
Fiona, that a lot of miles at a very good pace well done, good double today, were the intervals done in the gym?
AGF, what a lovely doggie, good totals for the week too
NP, I tried the cold bath with the tea, I think I broke the WR for speed tea drinking , awesome running and swimming totals
OH, Hope the enforced cutback weeks go well
SM6, good LSR today,
Tek, good to beat the CNBA daemon, relax and enjoy the rest on the sofa you deserve it
HM4, well done for getting out today and I hope the weather gods play fair and you can get out tomorrow
MG1, sounds like a good session at the gym, I'm avoiding the gym at the moment it is so busy
NN, A good 5 miles recovery after a long day, hope the LT session goes well tomorrow
10 miles this evening, it was very windy and it was raining as well, tried to do a progressive run but the conditions made it tricky, I also got snagged a few times in the 10th mile trying to cross the roads in the town
Totals for last week: 49miles 8hr 33mins
NN - Thanks, it only took just over 14 hours. But I don't have much else to do, and the dog needs walked anyway - although he didn't do all that!! Back to work for me, I think, on Friday. Good luck with LT today.
More walking for me today, then another gentle jog tomorrow for hopefully a bit further, maybe I will just walk run 5 miles or jog the lot if I feel ok!!
Stuart & NN,
Not a chance with how the forecast is and I don't think my legs would like it, however I do also have Thursday off as well so will try & get out then.
Ah thanks AGF ..running has always been my 'me' time its the easiest thing to fit around family and shifts, gym classes courses etc are always at set times whereas you can run whenever you have a spare hour...or 3 (for the odd 20 miler lol )
Kaz ,like AGFs lulu another fit lucky dog on the the thread thats get their share of walks, hope the jog goes well.
HM4 hope the forecast is wrong so you can get out..
weather not too bad at the moment unlike what Carol on the BBC says its NOT raining and its NOT windy so out for 10 now...then got a training afternoon at work.
Great that the weather is ok for your run NN, hope you get out too HM4 - I don't mind getting out for the short runs in rubbish weather but it is a thought for longer/speedy sessions.
I hope the recovery continues kaz but be careful not to push it, you are doing so well!
AGF I totally understand the proud feeling with Lulu! She is one lucky dog and has certainly landed on her 4 feet with you.
Stewart the run was on my own treadmill in the garage, well done to you for getting out last night. Nice weekly mileage.
4 miles easy this morning for me.
50mph winds and heavy rain forecast for tomorrow. Maybe as well I'm grounded.
Hope to see you out and about soon Kaz
NN well done on the cuddle and easy 5 miles yesterday hope you got out for you 10 with @ 5 LT.
SC how did you feel after the cold bath? did your legs feel refreshed? Well done on your 10mile run and the total for the week.
AGF Like Lulu's walking plan and running plan for the year Dog lover here.
Kaz1 nice plan
Fiona nice first run of the day
Wel plan said 10 miles with 5@ LT for me today as soon as I stepped out the door the heavens opened running in shorts the legs felt a little on the cool side but there was little to no wind splits for the total run:7:52, 6:09, 6:31, 7:19, 7:02, 7:06, 6:02, 6:10, 6:36, 8:07, I split the 5 miles at Tempo up and kept the pace steady in between, very happy at this stage of my training easy running for the rest of the week as I have a trail 10k race on Saturday and use that as a Tempo run.
HM hope you're enjoying your day off
Kaz nice walking and jogging. Glad you're up and out there...
MG good work in the gym
jason well done for slugging around the football pitch and good work in the wind last night
Fiona nice double with some speedy long intervals yesterday.
NN fabulous month so far; well done on the 5 miles and hope today's LT went ok.
Stewart well done on that 10 miler
AGF blimey that was a late night...
OH 50 mph wind
NP nice tempo pace !
11m for me today - 5m on my own on the flat, and 6m on hills with the club. I handed out the 40 CLICSargent vests this morning...everyone is excited about running as a team.
NN, Hope the LT session went well
OH, looks like impeccable timing
NP, the legs felt ok afterwards, however every inch of them were screaming for me to get out of the bath a good tempo session no need for the cold bath today
Tek, another good mixed run, a worthy cause you're supporting
Well when I got up the weather looked ok...but as usual by the time I actually sorted myself out and got out the door the rain was coming down and the wind was picking up , neither a head wind or tail wind..more of a side battering wind....always a shock these sessions..aiming for sub 7.40s seem to take a while for legs to get the message...2.5 miles easyish either sideLT bit.. 7.50...7.45...7.33...7.32...7.35 AVE HR 84.5%
NP great pace and how macho...the shorts in this weather I mean !!
Tek ..that's unusual a midweek club run during the day ? nice mileage for the day..are all the 40 vests doing VLM ?
NN - well done on the tempo. My 'club' is for old geezers and housewives, and meets in the mornings. The charity effort is for our local Half in Brentwood (which has been picked this year as a race for the RW pace makers)
Oh I see !! well its brilliant that they are getting some encouragement....hope they collect lots of money..
Definately have done.
Well done on everyone's training. Didn't manage to get out today as it's been really wet & windy.
