Consistent trainer? Thats me to a T (!!)
.............. I'll be dropping straight off the bottom as soon as we get past May 31st.
Wow - 14.1 - that is really rather fast to keep up for 26 miles!
Although you could see it that I have to keep up my (slower) pace for much longer (timewise)!
Do you have an aim for pace for the ultrs distances? Or is it just more about getting to the finish?!
I still have sore ribs - snot fair!!
I've had such a lovely lie in this morning.
Legs aren't sore either which is great, athough they do feel tired. I hope I haven't understimated my friend's running pace, she might be leaving me behind on our run later.
Is it the hilly bike ride today?
Two days without running... make that 8 for me...
I have completely lost my running mojo to be honest, while I have great desire to be out on the bike. It is a lovely sunny day here in Exeter, but I have an eforced rest day because of my 50 mile cycling test tomorrow... Wished I was out on the bike right now... booohooo! I bet it is sleet and wind again tomorrow for my test and on Monday, to stop me going out for a run...
I have a 14-ish miles MM orienteering type event on three weeks... and I feel grosly unfit for it... My ankle just isn't healing. I reckon I will have to accept the fact that it never will and that my running days are over I can't bear the slowness and the unbalance of the ankle on the descents. It is CRAP with a capital C! Thank God I have my bikes and soon a flash new carbon road bike, as well as a track bike I hope
Sorry to hear the ankle is still being a pain Han.
Good news about new bikes though, that the advantage of biking.... there's so much more to buy. A new bike is a lot more shiny and pretty than a pair of trainers!
I will do the 14 miler, however, it is a team thing and I am doing it with T, so he may just get frustrated with my lack of speed...
Maddy however is right, mike biking mojo is extremely high and that is all that matters
Paul - trying to get us to feel sorry for you is just not going to work...
I'm back in with TWO shoe boxes of shiny new trainers.
A gleaming white pair of Brooks that I'm going to try to keep that way, using them for the treadmill and road running in the dry! Plus a pair of Saucony trail shoes so that I can grip a bit better in the mud (and Paul doesn't tell me off for muddy trainers). Ooh and 3 pairs of running socks too. I wanted gloves as well but the only ones they had in my size were the lumnious yellow ones and I hated them.
It was definitely a recovery outing to Harewood this afternoon. We set of at a half decent pace but then walked pretty much every hill ( and there are a fair few in Harewood!). It was beautiful sunshine and blue skies though and it was only to show my friend the possibilites in the area. Its all still miles for the log though.
I might even have some energy left for a short bit of mountain biking tomorrow - weather dependent.
