Gul, that is a remarkable run, both the start time and the distance/pace!!
SBD- well done on the 10k. As you say, even if it's not quite what you were after it's always nice to be sub 40 especially if you don't consider it your best day.
Sounds like you had a decent all round weekend Gerard.
oo- that's some fast running all in one afternoon with the 5k in there as well. Hardlines on the sub 18 effort. It'll happen sooner rather than later though i'm sure. Great wava score mind.
Enjoy p and d, Stevie. There's a lot to be taken from it.
Nice 11, Leslie.
Hope the bike ride went well, Lorenzo.
I have remained true to my word and not done anything since Thursday morning. Feeling rather idle and bloated right now but legs feel good and loose. I will do a few sessions this week from tomorrow however I have the Wilsmlow half on sunday so I am not sure there is much point undoing the good rest work I have done as this is a target race.
Great run SBD and congrats on Sub 40, always a great time! I dont't think I going to follow the P&D schedule religiously as there isn't enough variety in the sessions for me. Will definitely be applying some of the principles to my plan though which I made a start on yesterday.
May get a chance to race parkrun at the weekend although I'm torn between doing that to see where my fitness is and possibly set a new PB or getting out for a long run on Friday afternoon. I think the latter is more sensible as I haven't ran further than 13 miles since London.
OO completely agree with the Hoka's, they look huge and clumpy! Some people swear by them though...
Abingdon is a great event Stevie - you'll enjoy!
Good work on the hills Gerard - an interesting choice when you're felling knackered!
Apart from the rest that sounds good news Poacher. Not sure about the Hokas though ...
That's a long break DT19 - what sessions will you do for the rest of the week before Wilmslow?
I'm surprised you're able to run today Gul!
PMJ - Just the races and tempo runs in the weeks without races. Had thought about doing some interval sessions on the track but time and motivation have not worked in my favour. I had hoped to find a bit more speed over the last 2 months but happy to have just kept the mileage ticking over and to have maintained a reasonable 10K speed through the racing.
A very lethargic 6 miles recovery tonight.
I had a pacey 5 miler last night and planning some track tonight & Thursday.
Well done on the runbritain ranking DT19
still time juts to make some difference, Birch!
Hi, Joolska. Good luck with the Valencia campaign.
Nice double, Gerard.
Nice couple of runs there, Gul.
Whilst being advised last Thursday I needed 7 days recovery, yesterday was day 5 so I thought I'd try a tentative 5k. It didn't go well in that my tentative approach must of changed my gait as my left soleus tightened right up straight away and I got pins and needles in my left foot and by the end of the run the entire foot was numb. My right peroneals really ached as well. However, no reaction from groin area over night so with that in mind I am hoping to get something a little further in today which I can hopefully relax into.
I feel like I need to put in a mini hmp session tomorrow just to ensure my body still works at sub 6.20 pace. Running can be a very insecure sport! On the other hand should I just trust in myself and where I am at and not spoil the tapered legs?
DT - I wouldn't risk it, theres more to be lost from it then there is to gain. Just have faith that the speed is there and it will be fine on the day.
G-Dawg - good luck with the Chicago campaign, I am at the opposite end of the spectrum to you. I've only managed 70 miles since London so will definitely be playing catch up when the Abo campaign starts! On the plus side I'm roughly 7 pounds lighter than when I started London training so that will help.
Thanks.....that's what I wanted to hear. I was still fit whilst racing 10 and 7 days ago so shouldn't have lost it all with 4 days off!
I managed 173 miles in May and on 91 for June so I suspect that'll top 150. If I compare that to November and December (being the 2 down months before the key 3 months mara training) I did 142 and 165, but then spent January injured posting 70. Assuming I escape June unscathed I have a decent platform to work from I feel.
well done, Birch.
5 miles at easy over lunch felt much more natural than yesterdays 5k. Sundays forecast is currently very still but with a 10.30 start there is the risk that if the sun comes out it could get warm.
