Good luck with the hip exercises Scott and Millsy. What kind are they? I feel I always need more work on my hips!
Starting to do some exercises from this website: https://www.skyflohealth.com/hip-internal-rotation/ or https://www.skyflohealth.com/hip-external-rotation/
Your picking up the miles quickly Jools
Pleased to hear the HR is returning to normal Spoons
I wouldn't bet against you breaking sub 20 Macca. Guess there's no 'right' way to approach it just got to find what works for you
Sure you enjoyed your trip Alan, good luck to Liverpool in the final
Easy 30 this evening with 6 x grass strides. Nothing tomorrow as have a full day of golf, watching wycombe's last game of the season then out in the evening to watch Haye v Bellew. Sunday will be a longer run depending on the hangover
Great long run AWC.
Nice racing Hazel and NE.
Congrats on the PB Millsy.
Amazing work Macca, must have been hard work in the heat. Like Reg I struggle to comprehend running 100 miles.
Quiet weekend for you Jooligan
Congrats on the win Reg, great stuff.
My legs slowly coming back to me, and my heart rate is slowly coming down to more normal levels. Nice to see some progress, and will be trying to get some proper training in this week. I really loved the sunny weather over the weekend, managed to get out early enough on Sunday to enjoy it before it got too toasty!
Sounds good Millsy.
I certainly use hip hitches before a run when I’m sorting out which podcast to
listen to or waiting for GPS/HR. Hope they work for you. And a great parkrun –
well done. Thanks for the links, Scott.
I think some of the band work is brilliant. Although I do keep breaking the
Casual sub4 with a poo stop, AWC. Nice work! Impressive hill session so soon after as well.
Nothing like a long descent for the DOMS. Nice hill racing, Hazel.
Amazing work, Macca.
The heat of VLm added 10 minutes for me so god only knows what a hotter day
must do for a 100M. Incredible perseverance and determination – very well done.
Good racing NE,
SteveMac and Jooligan. Love a
summer smash up. I’m keen for some track racing in July if possible.
Reg that is a
great prize! Brilliant racing and must have felt a useful sharpener as well.
Absolutely loved the heat of the weekend and all the eating,
drinking and relaxing that went with it. Friday morning saw a return to the
Three Hills of Cleeve challenge I have banged on about before. Three roads
climbs totalling 1500ft of climbing in 9M. The final road pushes 30% at its
steepest and it really is all I can do not to walk. I was gobsmacked to have
run a personal best for the segment (42 minutes from the bottom of the first to
the top of the third hill) and so I suppose London training has left me in good
Ran my 99th parkrun on Saturday, jogging round
with the buggy before heading to the lido. Very sadly it was announced on Sunday that one of the core team died in his sleep. He was a bloody good bloke and great athlete. He will be missed.
We are so lucky in that the tri club
get in the lido an hour before the masses. Pool to ourselves, and then access to the
kids pool the second it opens. We left after a couple of hours and the queues
were insane – I definitely wouldn’t have the patience for that.
Got out early Sunday and had a whale of a time seeing loads
of baby animals in the countryside. Recovery double yesterday and a bit more lido-bliss before an easy 10M
on the canal this morning. Eagerly awaiting a spoons led 16 x 100m tomorrow. A far cry of the 16M mixed pace
tempos of a couple of months ago!
