Spoons - that's spot on - sore after running (like limping a bit) and first thing in the morning (barely stand on it)...Only have to limp out about 7-8 more weeks of training .... how long till you needed time off.
I was doing the exercises but I …
Sorry Macca - I could no help but sneak the extra 0.1 to make it a half marathon .... does that mean my whole training plan is shot to sh#t now?
Jools - not sure if the PF is under control. Painful walking and limping a bit but no pain running ... …
Top effort TR, bit unpleasant running this weekend. M50 win is impressive!!
No surprised no long runs with a 14m and 12m - that's 2 long runs in my book...
Macca - you are tighter than me... (we as tight maybe)
No one told me about the Worthing half!!!!!
Just checked and its £45 ... £45.......... Bit rich for me! That's errr £3.44 per mile (got the calculator out this time). About 55p a minute!
Best of luck TR and Woky guys!
Its all been happening here.
I never really understood the long run should be 25% of total weekly mileage. that means everyone doing a 20 miler needs to be doing 60 miles per week, which most marathoners don't do (except people on here).
Advice taken Jools and just did an aerobic 7m run today. might try a MLR tomorrow. but Im falling apart.
Sore ball of foot (left foot)
PF right foot (heel hurts)
pain inner lower shin.
Apart from that all good......(only really concerned with PF…
Spoons - what was the outcome from the podcast - at work so cant listen......no point in LT pace or VO2 max? Sounds interesting
I really recommend Brighton as Spoons says its one of my favourite marathons!
Just checked P&D schedule and this we…
AWC - you [email protected]'s the sort of thing I would do. LOL
Any decent marathons will be sold out now. Paris marathon ? 14th April
Chichester - goodwood ? 14th April - closer to home. or 16th March coastal marathon in East Dean?
Maybe a charity …
Spoons, I like running on tarmac, but the views trail running and isolation are great, don't generally get that on tarmac!
It was bloody cold early yesterday. 110 miles in a week is nuts Spoons! I managed my highest mileage week for over a year thi…
Jools 19min 5k sounds nice to bag a top 10 finish
Sub 36min 10k SQ, awesome.
Rammers - 18 with 10 at MP is hard. put me to shame.
HA, sorry to hear the knee is not good still ITB is nasty!
After being accused of slacking with a day off Friday, I…
Good to hear its clearing up Westy - shame about pulling out of Manchester, but big guns makes up for it in my opinion!
HA I have ITB really bad after my first year of running and it was nasty... did loads of research into it... too much to bang on…
The big question really is how the hell do you guys :
a) find time to run 400 miles (that's about 3200 minutes of running)
b) not get injured !
But its bloody impressive
I presume you guys are running doubles in a day
Well done on the dreadmill Spoons. Impressive session.
My legs in todays run (calves and achillies) were sore bunnies from yesterdays LT run so the effort must have been there!
Thanks Jools - lets wait and see, Im not full of confidence yet!
Hmmm just returned from a crappy 11 mile LT run... didn't really come close to hitting my LT times
Not a happy bunny.....Hilly and icy didn't help. I actually run one of my warm down miles faster than one of my LT miles!
Hydepark runner - I would love to know your receipe to knock 7 mins off your HM PB then marathon at a quicker pace again. Its what I would love to do.
Rammers re the LT miles - I didn't know you could split the LT miles, I thought they were suppos…
Blimey EE you are getting the long ones in already. 4 long runs...
I've only done a 16 miler and 20, but that was off the back of some good base training end of last year.
I kept pretty much to 8 min miles then last 2 miles at MP. Felt ok, so quit…
Joe....I hate to protest too much but unless you have piled on 3 stone you are taking the pi##....(or going for another record dressed as a hippo)
You could probably run 3:30 without even training. you just did sub 3 a few months ago!
In that case…
