Morning, not had time to read back yet, will do later.
Bit concerned about a niggle in my ankle and a sore spot on the inside of my knee, both on the right leg, so skipped yestedays 12 miler in favour of some cross training I did my pilates class , an hour on the AMT trainer wow what a work out, then went to AB Attack class last night, good grief !! non stop the woman who took the class is insane, and she is running Taunton (local) marathon on Sunday, she did promise that she was resting after last night, mmmm a 3 day taper .lol
I just hope this ankle sorts its self out scared to run on it glad it taper time but..I will be gutted if it is still a problem this time next week, in the mean time I will carry on with the cardio classes/workouts they have just put our membership up so at least I will get my monies worth
cath up later
Tek - great picture
Sydeny Only time I have ever had blisters is when I had a hurried preparation before HM and laces were not properly adjusted.Strange weather at present - bush fires on Skye reported today!
((((Fiona))))- Right.. take a deep breath- there is plenty of time to sort your piriformis issue. Keep the stretches/ massage going. Personally, I wouldn't rest it, but would keep it moving with GENTLE recovery runs-??
NN- take care- hope the ankle is more in the mind than in the foot- these niggles ALWAYS appear at taper time...
mace- excellent going on the intervals- know what you mean about canning them- I felt the same, but I was on a track, not a prom!!
NP- seriously, hope you have a good rest and recover from last night's ordeal
Primal diet is going well- i lost another 0.6lb yesterday, but seem to have MORE energy A new one this morning- breakfast was smoked salmon on a bed of rocket with a lime juice and olive oil dressing! Never had salad for breakfast before, but TOTALLY recommend it now!!
My "interesting" breakfast worked well- 7m including 5x800mtr intervals (splits-2.45, 2.44, 2.43, 2.45, 2.44) done and dusted Pleased with that- especially as it is blowing a freezing gale again! Out for a few slower ones later on
Knee seems better, but now I have a dodgy ankle/calve. And possibly a cold coming on. this taper isn't going well.
Didn't run today, just done some weights. Managed to do some lower body stuff at last, but just kept it light. I want to run tomorrow, but I'll need to wait and see.
Hope that's not going to be the case.
Hope you can get back running soon.
No press ups from me today. It's been really cold and we've had snow so I've now got a wheat bag on my shoulder.
6.4 miles done with JS group on a very pleasant evening.
SM6- Watch out for the taper madness!
Stewart- I hope this weather will improve- no sign of the wind easing here yet though! Hope you're back running soon
OH- well done- glad the weather's better with you!
6.5m recovery run done tonight- howling gale!
Hi all, joining a bit late in the season. Aiming for the Chester Marathon in October but with a few halfs along the way. Selected new races this year to liven up my running a bit.
Hope to pick up some useful tips and shae thoughts over the coming months. Good luck to anyone with races coming up soon!
AGF glad you're back running
Stuart nice swim yesterday. Glad the knee's better; hope you shake that ankle/calf niggle and avoid the cold
Jason nice double yesterday. Lol at the breakfast. Nice intervals this morning and well done in tonight's gale.
MG well done on the treddie 6k
NP nice 12m MLR yesterday.
Fiona sorry to hear about that niggle. Rest and roller will help I'm sure...
Mace thanks. I'm not sure what the problem is - I was happy if breathless at 7:10 pace for my Half, but my breathing doesn't feel right at 8mm - and I know from past mistakes MP needs to feel comfortable. Not sure what to do but I'm hoping a change in route will shake the chimp. Nice intervals btw
NN oh no, more niggles! It truly is taper madness time!
OH thanks, nice 6.4m with JS tonight
Stewart sorry to hear you still have the lurgy. Yay to Garmin!
HM hope the heat eases the shoulder
Doc Pete welcome
Total CBA this morning. Supposed to be a 14m MLR but I couldn't get out of bed in time. Did a 7m progressive treddie job, then did another 4.65m on the road tonight to make up for it. Snowing again here. HR has dropped again...
DP Hello and welcome from another DP!

Is TekNik becoming HumanNik?
Thanks guys, got a physio appt for tomorrow at 1:45pm. She does the local (Premier league) football team so knows her stuff!
mace nice speed session, well done for getting out in the snow - brrr!
NN you have my sympathy! Caught up with NP yesterday. I'll message you the meeting details for Saturday.
OH it has been so dry, lots of fires down Lochaber way - scary!
jason well done on the running in rubbish weather. Stunning day here. I'll see what the physio says about running and might get out for an easy one tomorrow.
Stuart I hope your ankle/calve are ok.
Stewart good news on the garmin, I'm sure you'll feel better soon. Just in time for Lochaber.
HM4 I hope the heat helps the shoulder, not good for the press ups!
Sounds like a decent days training Teknik. Shame that you and others still have snow.
NN the RW messaging service did not seem to work so emailed you on Fetch!
Stewart - Hope you're better soon
OH - Nice running
Jason - Good running in the wind
Tek - I feel like that most days! Well done on getting the miles in though.
Fiona - Hope the physio sorts you out
MG - Sounds a good gym session, enjoy the rest day.
NP - Good running/swmming the past few days. Good plan for the weekend.
3.1 miles for me today. Leg isn't much better If that wasn't bad enough, I'm most definitely ill. HR was 91 when I went out (it's usually high 50s/low 60s). And the inside of my mouth has swollen up.
I think I have a difficult decision to make in a couple of days...
Just back from the physio and as you rightly say NP lots of stretching should do the trick. She did get into the glute with an elbow - ouch! But it really worked. So jason I will be doing as you said and running easy for a bit. Back to it tomorrow as a bit ill overnight some horrid work bug. Typical as I had taken today as a holiday and could not even run if I wanted to, such a waste of a sunny calm day.
Stewart I hope you are getting better.
MG1 take care on Saturday!
Nice plan NP to get the MP miles in the half (if you can hold back! ) You must be shattered after that long shift.
Stuart - rest! You may be ok if you do and can aways decide mid week.
So far first week of taper 8 miles. Oh dear - will get some miles in the next 2 days but it's not good.
NN hope you are ok.
Fiona glad you have a plan now. Hope you shake that bug and good luck with the roller
MG good gym session, and I hope you had a relaxing day off today
NP nice double yesterday. Well done on the swim, and enjoy the easy treddie later. Have fun at tomorrow's parkrun
Stuart! Rest. Go to bed. You can shake it in a few days, so, like F says, no need to make the decision yet.
Jason you're starting to make me think about that no grain diet. Enjoy the parkrun tomorrow.
90 minutes hot yoga this morning then a very stiff and achy 5m this afternoon. Early night tonight, as, with the weather improving, I want to PB at my parkrun tomorrow.
It did do & it seemed a tropical 7C on the way to the supermarket this evening.
That's really good & encouraging news.
Well done on everyone's training.
Hope you get your PB Teknik.
Good luck with the shoes NP, what kind are they? Looks like everyone is parkrunning.
Food still not good but a lot better, trying to eat as I'll need energy for tomorrow. Did a few stretches this morning but had to rest, no run today but really hope I'll get out tomorrow. Just hope the weight I'm losing will offest the fitness I'm losing at least a little. Oh well better now than 2 weeks. Expo is Friday morning for me NP as soon as we arrive and drop the bags off at the hotel. Normally there by 11:30am.
HM it's warmed up here too...nowhere near that balmy 7C though
NP well done on the swim and easy 5m
Jason - potato salad for breakfast?
Fiona hope you shake that bug soon
Another 5k PB this morning - 20:55 - so only a disappointing 3 second gain! I have done no speedwork in over a year, so I think I'm at the limit of where I can hope to be on short races. I'll have to wait until after the summer base re-build to have another crack.
Enjoy the week-end everyone
Tek- well done on the PB!!!! Again!!!!
Fiona- don't push it - YOU WON'T LOSE FITNESS!!!!!!!
Potato salad worked well! Ran the PR 43 seconds than the last time I ran it properly 3 weeks ago- and after Thursday's intervals I'm happy with that!
(((((Fiona)))))) dont force the pace to much tomorrow and i hope your feeling a lot better, new shoes are Brooks ST5 second pair and wore them today
Teknik well done on the new PB but the tempos sessions should be enough to give you more
Jason thats a massive PR over 5km within 3 weeks and shows you where you are at at present
Well did the Ecos Park run this morning, I ran over from the Station as a warm up, at the start I ran behind a couple of runners and felt I could go faster so took the lead after 400 to 500m and from there I just increased the lead to about 100 to 120m. This is the first Parkrun that I have ever won and it was run in a new 5km PB of 17:50 which is a PB by 23 seconds so I am over the moon at the moment and now looking forward to tomorrows half where I need to screw the lid down and just run the first three miles easy then up the pace to MP.
NP- well done on the PB and the win Don't go too fast tomorrow.... (My PR= Parkrun, not Personal Record btw- although this was a course best ) My 5k PB was last year- 17.55
