A 10 mile run today in the sun. Shorts, Sunglases.....and gloves/Hat n Took it easy - very enjoyable !!
Hope everyone having a good day !!
Well done on the 10 AGF...and hardly surprising you got plenty of offers to look after Lulu..bet she wont get quite so much exercise while your away though
Nice and sunny here too but still in tights..it has to be very warm or racing for me to get the legs out..
8.1 miles in 70 mins
off to work now
Great 11 miles NN, noticing the lengthening days here too. Love it! Good run today too but I'm with you, still in warmest tights, 2 long sleeve tops, jacket etc.....
OH work does sometimes conspire against our run plans. Hope you have a relaxing weekend.
If you stayed closer I'd be offering to look after Lulu too AGF! You could always just pop her on the Inverness flight!
Hope you get out this weekend HM4.
Sounds like a nice run there AGF.
Did my 22 this morning in lovely sunshine. A few slippery patches but conditions perfect. Such an easy run, had company & time flies when chatting. Saw you near the end Stewart, that was a big group out!
Meant to add with all the foam rolling (agony last night ) my knee seems 100% today so back to the roller!
I should do.
NP, hope the race goes well today
Tek, Hope the legs have recovered and the massage has done the business
AGF, nothing better than a fish supper , another good run today
SM6, Hope the legs are better and your run went well today
HM4, you're now getting back into it so those totals will creep up
Fiona, well done on the 22 you both looked very comfortable, it was a mystery mile group run today, must have been around 30 of us, I plodded along at the back as it was a recovery run for me after last night's effort. I'm a fan of the roller too, I'll be on it later today.
NN, my mileages are increasing and the body is coping, so I've got to be happy with that, another good run at low HR, well done, enjoy the 21 tomorrow.
Interval session last night 4x800m repeats with 400m recoveries between, started with a mile warm up and finished with a mile cool down. Another tough session and I was blowing a little at the end, but I'm starting to see some improvement, from the last time I did this session back in September.
recovery run today 5m in a little over an hour legs are felt better after the run. 49 miles for the week
AGF nice sunny 10 miler
Stuart hope the legs are better affter the day off
NP lol. How was the race?
HM it's a start
Fiona fantastic 22m today...glad the knee's ok
NN good 11 miler yesterday, well done on today's 8.1m and good luck for tomorrow's 21m.
OH nice running and swimming. Enjoy the weekend off
Stewart well done on a tough speed session yesterday; nice recovery today and congratulations on the week's mileage
MG super long run - do you know yet what time you're shooting for in Rotterdam?
9m this morning, all ok here
I've found hopefully a more stable place for the race list...click here http://www.fetcheveryone.com/blog-view.php?id=53497
MG if you're feeling good after 22.25m, and with quite a few weeks of training left, I'm sure you'll do very well.
I would say, however, don't do too many long runs at a pace close to race pace - you don't want to leave your race on the training ground, and the required adaptations to the slow-twitch muscle fibres come from low intensity running.
Have you got a recent Half time?
NN - Nice running. I think your son should easily clear 1.35, I ran 95.17 off a much slower 10k time last spring. I hope to be faster than that when I'm as old as 31 though
OH - At least you go something done last night!
HM - A little is still better than nothing
Fiona - Nice long run today
AGF - Well done on the easy 10
Stewart - Nice intervals, I really need to get back to 800s too.
MG - Fantastic pace for the 22. Looking good for 3.45, at least
Tek - Well done
4.1 miles this morning @ 8.59. Legs were having none of it, so bailed near my house at 4 miles as I had plans anyway.
A gentle hillwalk this afternoon, 7.0 miles, 430m climb in 2.45. Tempted to re-attempt this 10 miles tonight as it seems to have loosened my legs up a bit, and I don't fancy doing 10 tomorrow, then 20 on Monday. Not sure its wise though.
Just got in from work , will have an early night then get up early do my 21 then go back to bed and try to sleep a few hours before tomorrows night shift
Fiona , I am evious you got the 22 done and dusted today, well done and in company, I was meant to be running 16 of my 21 with my brother tomorrow but he has a stomach bug so cant run, looks like a lonely one for me I dont really mind once I get going,
Stewart nice interval session and with the mile warm up and cool down the miles add up dont they, I too am going to a body balance class next week with a friend for the first time, glad you enjoyed yours
Tek nice 9 miler, oh talking of the race list can you add me in for Abingdon marathon 20th Oct, I entered it last night ( why why why ???) I just couldn't help it
MG1 I would think you would easily go under 3.45 with splits like that for a long run that leaves you feeling fresh , do you use a HRM ? that's the best way to tell if you running to fast or not as Tek says don't run too close to race pace
SM6 funny how you think 31 is old lol..you must be about 15 then...
NP fab racing good for you ..nice to get some cash too, don't you just live running past those youngsters, bet they hate it..how nice to make it a family day too
10.3 miles today, partly minor roads, partly farm tracksBrief swim with water temp at 4°C (main problem was getting in to deep enough water to swim as tide was out)
Tek hope you enjoyed your 9 miles
Teknik wrote (see)
- only if you're a signed up Fetchie
AGF - where are you just now?
FionaC - good to get a 22 in - just figuring out when I can squeeze a 20+ in daylight hours
NN hope your long run goes to plan tomorrow, you too NP
LOL at SM6's concept of old age!!
MG1 looks like your 22.5 went well
Aiming to run the Endure 24 again in June and have challenged myself to run 2013km before the end of the year, currently on 120km.
Not really a long distance runner (typically run 10-15km), but hoping to do at least a HM at some point later in the year also. Will be keeping in touch to read about training plans and advice scattered on here.
NP - Great racing
OH - Nice run, I'm shivering just thinking about your swim however!
NN - Haha, I think you and OH have misunderstood me a bit! I actually meant that for me to be running a 1.35 half at 31, I'd only have needed to improve my time by about 4 seconds per year, which I wouldn't be too happy with
Well done on the prize.
Well done on everyone's training. Thanks for the comments I'm starting to sort out my training plan which looks like it's going to be a 8 week 10k done on a loop or after I've done the first run thru may keep repeating the last 4 weeks. I'll decide what to do after this week providing I can get out 3 times for a couple of miles each time.
(Young) Stuart - sorry the run didn't go well. Good luck for the LSR tomorrow.
MG - first time average male conversion for the Half to Mara is 2.29x, so 3:45 looks sensible with some training gains...you might be quicker, but better to start off steady and see how you feel at mile 20...
NP nice report, great race and well done on the M50 win. Hope the 22m went ok...
NN Abo added. Hope the long run was ok this morning
OH well done on the 10 miler and swim. Blast - I didn't realise you needed to sign in to see stuff on Fetch. I'll keep the Skydrive up too, but it keeps crashing...you could always join Fetch...
sd_28 welcome to the thread
HM good luck with the plan
1m warm up then 7m race with the club on a hilly road course. Very pleased with my 7.24 mm pace, without the HR exploding.
oops end of the week...
67m av 9.08mm av HR 72% max.
Tek LOVELY pace for that race... nice weekly miles well done and nice low HR
SM6 maybe not such a tough challenge then...lol
MG1 your pace and target time are similar to mine I am aiming for under 3.40 I have learned to start nice and easy and wear a HRM trying to keep around 70-75% letting it go up a bit towards 77-80 at the end to pick up the pace, and manage to finish feeling nice and strong
this was todays 21
Felt great today..wasnt really looking forward to running on my own but it is much easier to control pace..9.30..9.32..9.37..9.31..9.13..9.05..9.15..9.03..9.04..9.02 .8.56..9.04..8.44..8.49..8.58..8.46..8.52..8.55..8.48..8.50...8.47AVE HR 72.7 %
Well I am off back to bed now...some of us have to work tonight
HM - Sounds like a good idea. Good luck
Tek - Nice running, good pace.
NN - Great running, and nice low HR too. Well done
9.34 miles for me this morning, 8.42 ave. Got a bit excited from about 5 miles, and ran a bit faster than I really should have. A couple of sub 8s into the wind at the end was not what I had originally planned. Still, felt good, legs were ok too
Gym later and 20 tomorrow, which I'm not really looking forward too as it's supposedly going to be a bit wild here.
OH, another good run and swim, that some chilly water, big toe would be enough for me
HM4, hopefully you'll start to get out more and more and things will start to come together
Tek, well done with the race and a cracking pace, I got near that pace during my interval session and I was blowing out one! good stats for the week too
NN, enjoy the rest after todays effort well done
SM6, another good run well done, hope the 20 goes well.
With it being Sunday, it's long run day for me I've been planning to do this route for a while and I new it was going to be a brute. 1,179ft of elvation gain in total over the 17 mile route, it was very windy today and the rain was heavy at times, with all the hill work today the HR was very difficult to control and for the run was 80%, way too high for a LSR. A distance PB for me, so I've got to be happy with that
Good running StewartC sounds challenging
Impressive 21 NN
Tek "... on a hilly road course. Very pleased with my 7.24 mm pace ... " rightly so
HM4 - keep plodding at it.
SM6 Hope 20 miler goes well tomorrow
Just 3 miles today for me (between the squalls)... That's another squall just coming through
HM4 Nice to have a plan and a reason to get up and out and run
Teknik well done on the club race and 67 miles for the week
NN Great 21 miles run with the second half faster than the first like you I went back to bed for a couple of hours.
SM6 nice running it's always nice to be able to pick up the pace a little, enjoy your 20 tomorrow.
SC Nice hill running, miles and time on feet well done.
OH did you also swim between the squalls?
Woke to the sound of rain and wind again this morning but after breakfast the rain had stopped and the wind had dropped a little, ran with the wind to my back for a few miles before turning into it. At mile 9 I met a guy who ran 2:56 in Dublin and he joined me for the next 13 and a bit miles which was nice as I also picked up my mate who is just back from holiday and is well tanned but suffering in the cold, he should of been here last week or the week before lol so 22 miles D&D and in the VLM bank.
Any sign of Jason
Well done on everyone's training. I got out for 2 miles this morning.
