Teknik that sounds like a great midweek morning running club all the best with the charity work
SC Might jump in a cold bath later I have a little niggle in my right calf and the cold bath will help. Kettle now on the boil.
NN well done on the LT run and miles, I know what you mean about the rain but no macho me here
Forgot 4 miles recovery in the wind and rain. 14 tomorrow hope that wind drops.
Not a good forecast here for tomorrow.
And heres the boy who's been getting all the exercise. He is 4 today!
Blimey I wouldn't want to feed him for a month..he looks huge
he is gorgeous Kaz
He is rather big! His name is Joop(kidz named him after aftershave). A very happy boy, and very much likes running around on walks but we have to be careful because people are rather intimidated by him!! He would never hurt anyone thou, and is just a big softy. Very much like Scooby Doo in mannerisms
Flying visit- only just got back in! Happy Birthday, Joop!
Had to juggle my schedule a bit- cos didn't get home from work until 7pm and tbh my legs are still feeling the effects of the enforced race on Sunday! so 5.xx and 6.5m recovery runs today- no chance of doing tempo run- but figure i did that -effort wise at least- on Sunday.
Eat and bed now- catch up tomorrow- good running all
Love the dog kaz! He must be so happy with all the walks he's getting.
Well I think the 50mph winds have hit here, never run into such wind and the rain felt like it was taking my skin off - really sore!
Nice double NP, I see the wind got up for your recovery run! A good recovery double jason, not surprised the legs are feeling Sunday's race, that was a tough one!!
Good luck on the charity effort Teknik, that's a big number running for it.
NN fantastic pace on the LT run.
Pretty strong wind and rain here HM4, hope it calms down for you tomorrow.
Did 7.4m tonight with first half into the strongest wind I've ever run into and the rain . We binned the pyramid session on the way out as just impossible, getting blown about all over the place. Flying on the way back tho'!
Well done on the gym work MG1. I tried to get my weights done after the run but weights room was full, will try again early at the weekend.
HM hope the weather's not too bad down there
NP nice recovery - hope the 14 goes ok today
Kaz wow what a great dog !
jason good double recoveries
MG well done in the gym and on the treddie
Fiona well done in the wind - tough stuff
Stewart well done on the 5m in a gale
Breakthrough run here this morning - 4m at 70%max, got below 9mm at that HR for the first time this campaign. Feeling good! MP run tonight...
50kts gusting over 60kts here(just as well I'm grounded)Well done to all those battling the wind StewartC FionaCTek - sounding good and on track
Hi Everyone. A couple of days of non running is over and I jogged with the dog this morning. So I am back on it. Legs feel rested but I am tired after two days or drinking late into the night !!.....I am not as young as i used to be Good fun though!
Well done on the breakthrough Tek.
Be careful in the gusty wind folks !!
Well done Stewart, last night was tough!
Teknik nice breakthrough on the HR.
OH must be pretty wild with you, gusts of 129mph recorded not so far away from here!
AGF I'm sure the rest will have done you good.
NP same here, wind seems worse than last night (although not as bad as through the night) but hope it calms down for later. Well done on the 14. Meant to be a longer one for me tonight but will see how far I manage in this weather, might just run at an easy pace.
He looks cute and trouble. Is he a Great Dane?
Today has been quieter. On tomorrow's day off I'm going to be reasonably busy however if I get chance I'd really like to get out.
Well done on everyone's training.
2nd run for the day. A few sprints up the local hill. Nice to be back running after a couple of days off
Good running, everyone!
4.5 miles @ 9.35 this evening. Second half into a pretty strong headwind, almost bringing me to a standstill in places. Still, it was much less breezy than it was yesterday/this morning
11 or so tomorrow evening or Friday morning.
Fiona- nice running in the wind. Same problem here. seems that a lot of us are battling the elements at the moment Especially those in the North- heard it was pretty grim up your way, OH.....
Stewart- nice 5m
Tek- well done on the breakthrough- great when you get those!
NP- nice 14m and a good pace too there
AGF- well done on the double
Somebody was smiling on me this morning as I drove down to my usual morning run route- it threw it down with massive hailstones, covering the road in seconds and my wipers were struggling to cope. I felt pretty anxious sat inside in my shorts... by the time I ran it had turned to rain and stopped within 10 mins of my 6.5m recovery. PHEW! This evening my achilles were still a bit sore after Sunday's bashing, so i treated them with doing my 15m ML run on the nice soft track. They loosened up enough for me to be able to run the last 6m at pMP, fairly comfortably. Very happy with this run 15.01m in 1.41.24 (6.45 av) splits: 7:10 7:19 7:21 7:23 7:08 7:08 7:12 6:58 6:48 6:13 6:10 6:07 6:10 6:09 6:02 4
I love it when a plan comes together
OH blimey hope everything's nailed down at home
AGF nice dog run and well done on the hill sprints
NP nice MLR today
Fiona well done in the wind and hope you got out again tonight
HM good luck for tomorrow
MG nice 4m
Stuart well done for battling through on the 4.5m
jason wow - nice recovery and nice splits on the 15m! Running track?!
2m warm up and down tonight and 10k at around 80%max as a MP test - came out at 8:20mm, so pretty happy at this early stage...
Well done everyone for getting out there. Fantastic MP jason and Teknik the HR running is really coming together!
AGF sounds like you have a spring in your step after the rest! MG1 you'll be the same after a rest.
Stewart did you run or go to the gym; it looked busy last night.
Decided rather than battle the wind to do a hill session on the treadmill. Ages since I've done that so quite happy with it, 6 miles done. Looks like it's going to calm down later tonight and hope it stays that way for the weekend!
MG1, a little TLC for your legs NP will recommend the cold bath, and trust me that's a different sort of pain
SM6, well done for getting out and it will have been tough in the windy conditions
Jason, the weather gods played nice for a change, another great run in the bank
Tek, are you planning running at 80% for your marathon
Fiona, well done for the hilly six on the treadie, I decided to give the run a miss, the plan for today was to do some 800m repeats at the track but it was just to blustery, so for a change I went to the gym, did some weights, ran on the AMT for 25 minutes and did a little core and stretch session. JS tomorrow so I look to get the 800's done on Friday
Quick post..will read back properly during my long break later
