Thanks. I'm feeling more with it. It's just the voice which is being problematic.
That's good news.
Fingers crossed for you.
Well done on everyone's training.
mace "enjoy" the massage. Good work on the 6 last night and 6 this morning. I'm the same - MP feels awkward until about mile 4 or 5.
Jason nice 10m in the gale yesterday
Fiona nice chocolate frenzy and 5m MP run yesterday.
Stuart well done on the 4.6m last night. Still a few more days to get over the bug: HR will settle down.
NP LOL. 3:15 is a bit off. Nice 6m steady and good bouncy 10m today
MG well done on the 3m.
NN I'm so glad the fizz sorted it all out. Plenty of time to get over the tendonitis.
HM good to hear you're on the mend
Some of us are still working...
I changed my MP route from the usual one, to one we use for Half training - the idea was that running sub8mm was going to feel easier on a route I've run lots of times at 7:15 pace. It worked. Chimp chased away, and I managed 10m at 7:50mm, HR levelling out at 81%max.
Including w/up and down that's 11.34m today. Very happy
Tek- well done, nice running
HM4- hope the recovery continues
4m recovery plod done- what now?
Jason - how 'bout looking up some more fish recipes while throwing a medicine ball ?
I adore smoked salmon - Wildwaters (Shetland) pastrami style my fav!
Hope the massage works any knots out mace. My RW message does not work - are you on Fetch? NP/jason does your messaging service work to let mace know the Saturday plans?
Interesting on the parkrun. Not that I'm doing one with my dodgy hamstring but Janice Moorekite advised me to race one the week before. (I am NOT suggesting that anyone races one!!)
Nice work Teknik, NP and jason.
Lots going on here today, looks like everyone has more time on their hands!
Doing my first marathom at this years London on 21/04.
A quick question- what are peoples thoughts on very moderate drinkiing this week e.g. 2 or 3 drinks on each of friday and saturday nights?
definite booze ban next week I swear but do people think a couple this week would do any harm?
Bruno depends how important the marathon is to you.
Stewart take care and hope the next day or two sees an improvement.
Planning 6m later. Leg does not hurt all the time today.
MG1 hopefully if the start time is in the morning it will not warm up til nearer midday?
Take care everyone, lots of cotton wool and First Defence needed at this stage!
Tek - great news re the MP
Bruno - welcome, can't see how a couple will do any harm.
Stewart - hope you don't have to drop out, you don't deserve that
Fiona - for the leg
NP - not received any messages. Im on Fetch also as "mace" but rarely go on there
Sports Massage was ok, he did an easy/medium jobby on me which was slightly "uncomfortable" at times especially the elbows in the glute, but pleasant overall. Can't say i notice much difference today but he did say the benefit would be felt mostly after 36-48 hours.
After 3 days of low carbs i managed to drop another couple of pounds This morning was a bowl of home-made muesli, 2 toast with honey, a glass of apple juice and a glass of beet-it.
Jason well done on the recovery
Bruno just keep race week dry
MG nice gym work. If it's "only" up to 18C, that's still ok, I think.
Stewart rest up, you'll be fine
NP hope the tempo went ok
Fiona glad the leg is easier again today. Enjoy the 6
mace well done on the weight loss
14.2m MLR this morning, 6m in the mud and hills with the club, the rest on my own on tarmac. That's 3 hard days back-to-back, so looking forward to the recovery plod tomorrow.
mace - I have just sent you a Fetch mail! I am not on Facebook or any other of these things. I hope you can pop in to pick it up. Healthy breakfast!
Nice MLR Teknik, you really are putting in the miles!
Fiona - received thanks
Tek - i have to admit to being a bit jealous, it seems so long since my last MLR
Tek - how does that MP run compare to pre Frankfurt ?
Tek- nice one- heading up the mileage league there for a while
9m for me today, including my last track session pre VLM After a wind-free morning, it was, needless to say, gusting away by the time I hit the track. This, along with the ambitious pace, soon took its toll- like running through treacle down the home straight! lol! 9m total with 3x1m off 3min recoveries- splits for the miles tell the sorry story: 5.30, 5.39, 5.49. Still, not too shabby- think I should have carbed last night though- forgot my sweet potato! Running intervals fuelled by salmon and rocket not recommended
mace look forward to catching up!
jason that sounds tough especially low on fuel.
A fitness test NP - really?!! I suspect your results will be a bit different from the norm! Enjoy the tempo run.
Mace I only did 3 subLTs pre Frankfurt, as my 75% pace dipped below 9mm which was my target...so I just carried on plodding. One was 8.15, and two were at 8:30. In the end I chickened out and decided to run at 8:45. This time I'm going to trust Hadd...
Jason yup for about 2 hours. Well done on the 9m and the mile splits.
NP enjoy smashing the test
Feeling better today not as congested and cough has eased considerably, starting to feel a lot better about Sunday too
Jason, I'm only just into double figures for April, this is definitely going to be my lowest monthly total for quite sometime, speedy interval session even if you didn't hit 5:30
Tek, great MLR today your club likes the mud
NP, the fitness test will be a breeze compared to the tempo run I bet, hope you're enjoying the taper
Fiona, hope the hammy is not too sore
Mace, well done on the weight lose, I'm staying away from my scales, with ony 12 miles run this month I've bound to have put on a pound or two
SM6, how are you holding up only a few more days to go
Jason - Nice mile intervals. Foof sounds good too
Tek - You've fired in some great runs this week
Mace - Hope the sports massage done the trick
Stewart - Hope the illness clears, if you're still not well you'd be better not running today.
Fiona - Hope the leg is good, and the run goes well
NP - I assume you'll blitz that fitness test
Leg is still sore, so I'm doing nothing until Sunday morning. I may need to do some praying to various gods on Saturday night...
