Morning and foggy again
Todays lyrics:Would you know my name If I saw you in heaven?
Yesterdays lyrics: Running to stand still by U2 .
What: 4M Steadily done
Now coffee and catch up time.
Morning. A frosty start here.
What: either a MLR or a LSRWhy: will depend on how it all feels once I'm outLast hard: 24/2Last rest: 23/2
Lyrics - yes.
I know the lyrics love the singer but this song always makes me cry
hello all, great MLR there postieOH - I couldn't face that sort of journey to race more than once in a blue moon...would love the 4 day (or better still 3 day) week though...if only I could afford it!yesterday turned into a non event...work got in the way of lunchtime run, and club AGM straight from work. Then had to collect youngest on the way home from swimming meant I was indoors at 9.20. Run or eat?....the belly won.Today however should have the 2hr window as eldest has hockey, so hopefully something long and steady...why - I think I'm going to run a marathonlast rest - from running yesterday, from running around, fridaylast hard - Tuesdaylyric - dont think so
birkmyre, oh love these lyrics but have gone all goose bumpy...
Pammie yep me too!
lmh run well whichever you choose
9 miles went to schedule last night, cant ask for more!
what: 4 miles fartlek
last hard: kings head hill in chingford last night
last easy: monday
have a good day all
What: JS group tonightWhy: it's ThursdayLast hard: Sundaylast rest: Monday
Weather now broken with grey moist morning
Wabo - Good luck with the half
Postie - That's some speedy stuff there, what's the mara target?
Cautious as planned on the track yesterday. 800 reps off 90, so I did two easy at 3:25 which were OK; then 2 quicker at 3:15, also OK so a mile cool down and job done.
Track proper this afternoon, but still playing it safe as thigh not fully OK, complete quad stretch is a defninite no-go area!
What: flying to England Why: dress fitting for my bridesmaid dress and then the hen do Last hard: trying to fit everything into hand luggage.Lyrics: Yes, I love this song.
OH wow that is some commitment for racing!Chicka 5 mm, if only!
Going to try a run tomorrow and try and get to a parkrun on Saturday (have my bar code in the suitcase!). Hope I'll have time.
Have a good weekend everyone.
Legs said 'oh go on then, seeing as you asked so nicely' - 21 miles run in a beautiful morning with the last mile being the fastest.
Sounds as though the schedule is going well Wabo.
Hope you get some me time today Dustin.
Sleep well Pammie.
Have a great weekend emzap.
Great running, LMH Enjoy the hen do, emzapOH: kayaking course sounds interesting! I'd be terrified of those rolls . Knowing my own clumsiness I'd probably drown ...40: sounds like the legs are ok again - 3:15 is good for 800sPammie/wabo: had my fair share of falling over too ... if only the winter would go away what: 15 mile MLR d&d - split it into 6 x 2.5 miles. Plan was warm-up/steady/MP/steady/MP/cool-down. Worked out as 8:41-- 8:17 -- 7:40 -- 8:01 -- 7:42 -- 7:56. Crikey, I so didn't expect that, but priddy pleased how easy the faster running felt .why: slow MLRs are booooringlast hard: Sundaylast rest: Mondaylyrics: yep, great song!
Afternoon, and a beautiful one at that!
Some decent running going on, but not here...
What: 6k walked, off road, undulating,Why: didn't feel that I could trust my "good" calf, so didn't!
Lyrics: googled, I'm afraid!
Afternoon! Seems you have different weather on the other side of the Channel! Mainly overcast, still a cold wind biting from the north, though no longer freezing (by daytime).
Nice LSR from LMH.
Dustin: that sort of happened to me yesterday, too. I made up for it today, fortunately. It will make tomorrow's stair session erm... interesting.
What: 5.3M whichever way I got round (mainly running)
Why: didn't do it yesterday
Last hard: Tuesday
Last rest: Wednesday
Nice speed chickadeee! What's the target this time round?
Hope tomorrow's stair session isn't too interesting Tinebeest.
Nice session this early evening after work.
1 mile warm up followed by 6 x 3 mins fast with 2 mins recovery. In each of the 3 mins, I ran an average of 0.5 miles, each one being just a 10th over or under. Good consistency. Pleased with the pace and the shorter recovery. 1 mile warm down too, making 5 in total. Looking forward to the rest tomorrow again
What 7.64 with hills Why Thursdayas = hillsLyrics no
40 mins aiming for 2:50ish preferably under
Odd day cycled in and ran home. Run in next two days, cycle home Saturday (1.7 miles only).
Finished early todat, so did what one should do in the daylight... and has a Half on Sunday and in Mara training... = long run... yeap... 17m D&D
Feeling tired but good.... (and very hungry)
RFJ - nice long mid week run!
Little Miss Happy - congrats on your half marathon PB!
Tom - I see you sneaked in to say hello - what are you up to? Are you running?
alehouse - 6km is still 6km - it wasn't that long ago that you couldn't do anything.
chickadee - your marathon training is going really well - good on you!
emzap - enjoy your time in England.
40 minutes - nice speedwork.
wabo - you're doing really well with your marathon training too!
Dustin - you have a really busy schedule - hope there is enough time to fit a marathon in
birkmyre - lovely song!
Why: Trying to catch up - had the stitches out of my face on Tuesday.
Glad you're back running NZC - I was thinking of you on my run today.
Nice consistency donaldo.
NZC - glad you're on the mend. Well done on 16k.
LMH - my word, you must have asked your legs very nicely indeed!
Chickadee - very nice long slow mid-week run there too. Well done!
40min - hope quads managed whatever you decided to do tonight.
Me? Left things a bit late so had a short run - only 3 miles, but included 10 short sharkie bits, and that was about right - tired, but not so tired that I felt feeble for the rest of theday. I rather like that exercise - it's about the only time I make my legs go fast. Very short strides as I seem to have groin/hip issues at the moment. They hurt worst at night, so almost certainly pd related. Tomorrow I'm aiming to do a modest dose of hill.
Go well all.
6 miles done with JS group - even persuaded them along an unlit path tonight!
Excellent form being demonstrated by all concerned today. Is there a full moon?
Swim session. Proper one.As LMH noted, you can plod along all you like, and then something clicks and you make progress. Today was another progress day. 16L = 400m= 10:05 without trying64L = Mile= 41:39 PB by about 2 minutes.100L= 2.5km= 65:35 PB I started off the session trying to be ultra smooth and breathing every 3rd stroke. Amazingly I actually managed to get decent air on my unfavoured left side. That alone would have been considered to be progress. But I'm counting lengths because they all count, so reverted to RHS breathing only. I do need to keep doing this sort of session, because it's what will build up the feeble arm muscles, and I need to do this plus 50%, with it all feeling under control. I was a bit tired around the 80 mark to be honest. Happy swimbler.
