Iv got to be one of the youngest at 23 lol.
Oi watch it..I was "nearly 40" once you know..and the 40s just fly by....wava is a great way of giving us a chance in the club championships I suppose ..mine from sunday equals a younger club mate doing 1.08 for 10 miles..
MG1 it is bitter out there..I was glad I got my session done during the day and didnt go to track session its even colder now..
Spark you you 3 years older than my youngest !! do you still live with mummy ?
Lol, scary eh? Lol naw im well settled, bought my own place 3 years ago this year.

Right off you show someone your post !!
As i said though im well settled, Had my son at 19 a year later, passed my tradetest and bought my house in the same month. Now got 3 mutts and another on the way. Lifes good when i think about it
Oh he has done the son at 19 bit !! (bless )..he does work and pay his way though..but I still do his washing !!.
Good on you Spark a sorted young man..nice to hear
Aye, my missus does my washing, couldnt tell you how to turn the washing machine on lol.
As long as you out the bins out !
Tek, good MP test run today,
HM4, good to hear about the run, 100 pushups sounds brutal
Spark, glad the knee is holding up, well done
Fiona, hope the knee is behaving itself, that run up to the mast is hard enough without the mud, it's a real test of strength and endurance, it was cold today, but atleast the fog has lifted, clear skies this evening hope the sports massage does the business
MG1, another good 5 miler in the bank, enjoy the hill session tomorrow
NP, another good session today well done with the 15MLR, not windy here thankfully but it was a little nippy tonight
NN, that was some warm up, good consistent pacing, congrats with the placing
SM6, good luck with the 13 tomorrow,
Thanks everyone for the good wishes for my son, and I'm happy he is home
Tonight was a 12 MLR decided to do some MP miles, which I ran to fast, the first 4 miles were in the mid 10mm range and the splits for the remainder of the run were.
9:50 / 9:43 / 9:21 / 9:19 / 9:32 / 9:16 / 9:55 / 9:55 and 0.5m wd@10:36, HR was between 148(78%) - 156(82%) during the MP section.
MG1 well done for a tough run into the wind, sounds like you have a busy day planned for today.
Stewart that's a good run.
So last night foam rolled the hamstring not just the ITB (after AGF's post about tight hamstring contributing to ITB issues) and did even more stretching and (touches wood) the knee is 100% Did 5 miles easy this morning and a bit more rolling.
Good running Stewart.
Nice to hear Fiona. Its not just tight hamstrings that can cause it though. As I understand it, it is more than often when one part of the leg takes more strain than another. So Tighness can cause it, However if one leg is stronger than the other that can cause it too. Thats why they suggest single leg squats rather than double leg squats and it forces the weaker leg to be as good as the strong one. If the right leg is the leg that you always "push off" from when running then this can cause ITB in the left leg is you always land heavier on it. ( I think thats the rationale - something similar anyway)
Good to hear the rolling helped !!
Spark nice 6 miler yesterday
HM I wimped out of the Insanity stuff so I'll take at look at that one, thanks
Fiona well done on yesterday's freezing 13m. Glad you got out for this morning's 5 and good that the knee is better. Just in case you're short of things to poke/press/roll, my fizz said my knee issue/ITB tightness was due to a weak Glute Medius (not the Glute Max you hit with squats). Good exercise is here...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvxR5LoOu8Y
NP nice 15m yesterday.
AGF great double yesterday. Lol at Saga
NN I must admit those two races looked a little tough...well done on those intervals, and congrats on the old biddy placing
Stuart hope you get out for that 13m today
MG well done on the steady 5.5m - nice splits
Stewart well done with the MP run - that looks like a low/comfortable HR so things are looking good
Really cold out there this morning. LSR of 21m, mainly tarmac but a muddy 6 in the middle with the club. Av 9:17mm @70%maxHR, managed not to CBA when I got home at 20.5m - very little drift so v happy, but v cold.
Thanks AGF. I think it's either 60 secs quicker or 10% lower HR....
Stewart - marvellous MP run
Fiona - nice knee news
Tek - lovely LSR do you hydrate / refuel on your LSR's ?
It's getting bloody cold out there again Very nearly stuck the leggings on for this morning's 6M recovery
AGF - how are you doing ? Are you back into it yet ?
mace well done on the cold recovery run. I have one of those Fuel Belt things, that can take up to four 200ml bottles. For long slow runs I just take water with a bit of apple juice mixed in; for long runs with a MP finish I use Highfive 4:1 carb/protein solution. No gels 'til race day...
That's good to hear.
On the subject of being freezing, i was down to a wind jacket and a base layer last week. Had to add a T on top of the base this morning. And my kids are running around like it's summer ..... i remember my Dad telling me a few years back you start feeling it with age and i've definitely started to notice it more the last couple of years.
No running since 18 miles on Saturday . Bright but breezy here hope to get out tonight if matty is quiet.
Re SAGA thread - was down in Aberdeen for a CPD day on Sports and Exercise Medicine yesterday. One slide with facilities for elderly population were all for over 50s!!!
I wouldn't even manage a full push up so you'd be doing better than me.
They gave some alternatives if you can't do a full push up & they have even said you can do the challenge with a push up from the wall! Now that I would consider cheating. (I did just over a mile.)
Thought it was you who was looking at Insanity. I couldn't remember if it was someone from the 10k thread but was about 75% it was someone on here. If you do get make sure it's from the Beachbody website as with Amazon it has a bit missing. There doesn't appear to be too much difference on price, althought you may have to pay more for postage from Beachbody.
Well done on everyone's training. Hope it's not too cold as it's freezing here & they're forecasting some snow either tomorrow or Saturday. If it's Saturday afternoon & it's fresh snow I may go for a run after work.
Thanks. Don't blame you on that one. I wouldn't either.
Thanks for the tips guys - will get back to the clams Teknik, got that one from the physio when the piriformis was dodgy!
Great 21 Teknik and a cold day for it.
mace I have running tights and jacket even on the treadmill in the garage!
OH now that's depressing but hopefully the running will keep us younger.
Hope you get out HM4, our forecast looks bright and cold and (fingers crossed) no snow.
Nice tempo NP.
MG1 a nice mix of training.
Just in from a treadmill 8 miles with 7 at 7:13mm (well, last one was 7:18mm). Did more rolling and stretching, off to do some more. Problems getting into Fetch to log the run, will try later.
