Stuart hope the hip is ok; well done on the 11.2 miles
OH impressive list of events for Cape Wrath week
NP nice double Thursday, good training yesterday. Hope you enjoyed your hill this morning.
MG hope the LR is going ok
AGF up early mate? Well done on the 20 miler
Good luck everyone racing tomorrow
Parkrun for me. I don't do very many of these - I usually do a few 5k / 5m /10k races the day before a long run, towards the end of mara training (P&D style tune-up races). I was hoping for a big PB, but the unpredictable blasts of wind, the rain and an unexpected muddy grass section threw me a little. Still, a PB at 20:56 (22 secs improvement on September 2012).
Out on the razzle tronight...will make tomorrow's 21m extra special
Well done. It is a bit yucky out there. Tomorrow looks as thought it's going to be brighter so hope to get out then.
AGF Great 20 mile jog.
Teknik great PB in the park run all looking good, I think that burst of speed helps a lot.
HM4 Keep on pushing.
MG1 Enjoy your canal paths and roads
Well I went up my hill in the snow and sleet but I always enjoy this run and it's the one run I will never give up made a little more intresting by the fartlek session I do over the last half mile on the climb to the top.
Good luck to everyone racing today.
AGF & MG - Well done on the 20s
NP - Sounds like a challenging run
TEk - Great work on the new PB
Gym this morning, followed by 60(ish)x18m swim before work. Had planned to go for a short run after work, but another abysmal sleep has left me exhausted.
20 or HM tomorrow. I'll see how I feel in the morning.
Cape Wrath week is great social week. I did the half and full last year but rested between doing some marshalling and some photography. The beffet with the ceilidh at end of the week has to be seen to be believed. Highly recommended.
Sea swim then kayaking for me today.
Now who's hard core NPTek a PB is still a PB. Good luck with Special (brew) 22miler.
Nice little "jog" AGF!
Well done on the press ups HM4!
OH I've heard about Cape Wrath being a good week; might consider it one year.
mace that made me laugh!
Thanks for the advice NN. Also I got the training sheet etc through in the post and they recommended tapering down this week so that's what I've done. I really want to get the most out of the week away and am relaxed about doing less miles this week. No chance of a PB tomorrow either (not a PB course) so although I'll run hard I'll not risk any damage!! VLM is the big picture race and my plan is to concentrate on the shorter stuff over summer.
Well done on the PB Teknik! Hope the foot is ok.
Stuart nice training, know what you mean about tiredness, not good!!
NP a hilly fartlek! Great running!
Nice long runs AGF and MG1.
A short easy run this morning, 4m. Late last night and exhausted as I still waken at the same time regardless but nice to get out. The back of my right ankle is achey, any recommended stretches (think it's achilles area)?
Will catch up later after some food!
A good day's running here today! First off 6.2m including leading the field home in our hilly and muddy trail Parkrun in 19.44, then a post-lunch 10.05m in 1.11.50 and finally a 4.1m recovery run to round off the day
Well done guys & good luck to today's racers.
HM hope you get out for a run today...
Thanks AGF - got another in a couple of weeks time, hopefully not so windy and wet.
NP well done on your hill in the snow and sleet. Uphill fartlek? On your own?
MG another good 20 with a solid finish - well done again
Stuart good swimming, hope today went ok
OH sea swimming! Jesus you're a hard man
Fiona well done on the easy 4. I'd check out Youtube for the stretches- there's loads on there
Jason nice parkrun jog - great day's total
Predictably awful morning here. Hungover and dehydrated. Managed 17m including 7m at too fast a pace with the club, then grabbed the first lift home.
Week's total : 66m @ av 8:52mm @ av72%maxHR
Looking forward to the race reports
great training everyone
sounds Tek , well done for sticking with it though
good luck to everyone racing
Fiona - Soleus stretch ??
Hope it clears up soon
Hi guys - a very quick update on the warwick half as I am out for sunday lunch with the family.
I ran with my wife for the first few miles as it was her first half and the then progressed to run the last 7 miles to feel at rough marathon type pace ( turned out to be 7:30 or better ) . Was nice to run through the field. A good training run after yesterdays 20 miler. Very proud of wife who ran a strong first half with 10mm all the way !! A good day for our house - !!
69 Miles for the week too so pleased. 4 weeks to brighton !!!
Raced Alloa, wish I hadn't. Absolutely terrible run. Didn't even lift my garmin so I'm not sure of my time, but i doubt i even broke 95 minutes.
Not a happy camper
Well done to both of you.
Opps. Hope you did better than you thought.
Got out for just under 3 miles this morning. I've got Tuesday off so plan on doing 4 miles then.
Teknik great running with a sore head well done
AGF Well done on the half marathon well controlled and an excellent run by your wife
SM6 What time where you aiming for? and what did you do? It's not the end of the world we all have bad days mate.
SC Fantastic running well on for a sub 4 hr Marathon and a great PB.
Just over 16.5 miles for me today in my cut back week all nice and relaxed and legs feel like I havn't run today.
AGF well done, great week's work and congrats to Mrs AGF too
Stuart bad luck, sorry it didn't go to plan...
HM well done on the run
Stewart fantastic result, well done
NP nice 16.5m, glad you're feeling rested
Jason great 22m - fantastic splits...
Great parkrun result jason, well done! Just seen your post jason ...and two 20 something days. Any reason or just because you can?
Teknik good for you gettting out, sounds a tough run with a hangover! I make a point of never getting them as I can't cope any more!
AGF well done you and the OH, sounds like a great result for you both.
HM4 great that you got out, well done.
Stewart a fab PB, you've taken a huge chunk off your time!!
Stuart just one to put down to experience, forget about and move on. It was a bad day and you can do a lot better.
NP a very well deserved cut back day.
Inverness half. Freezing at the start and freezing at the finish despite the long sleeved top, gilet, gloves etc. Ran with the same 2 girls as the last half just by chance. As Stewart will know the first 6 miles is all gently uphill so ran to effort, at mile 8 one of the girls commented that she was too warm I was still cold. Think my thermostat is either very efficient or faulty! Next week will be interesting. Never felt like I was pushing it too much which is quite a nice way to run as I always used to run flat out!
Just ran a steady race and did not look at the time until the last bit where you head round the corner to get onto the track - too late to get sub 90 but delighted with 1:30:10 as I don't feel like I ran now and will be all set for my week's warm weather training. 3rd FV out of 204, 10th lady overall out of 679.
Well done on the pb.
Fantastic time Fiona, not even flat out
