I run to effort not pace CC2 so no idea what they'll come out as - two years ago it was 2.16 but I'm running more slowly this year and have had a big week so tomorrow could be a fair bit slower.
Nice long run TR.
I'm glad it's not just me chicksta. At 168cm (ish) petite isn't an option for me either and I am very limited in my clothes buying choices. If you can't raise your HR I'd suggest that you are fatigued.
Hope today's run is better Hazel.
I shall look out for you CC2 - I'm the old, scrawny one in a purple vest with a blond ponytail. My plan is first lap easy second lap hard and see where that gets me - at the end of a 100 mile week probably not very fast. Sounds like a busy time for …
LMH will be trying to run 20 miles tomorrow at a quicker pace Alehouse - and all these things are relative as you well know.
Afternoon tea sounds nice emzap.
I'm using Ashby as an excuse with the eating really as I think I need to put on a bit of…
Enjoy parkrun chicksta - and anyone else participating.
What: short and easy/bit of carb loading
Why: trying to have fresh legs/bit of an excuse
Last hard: finding some pace
Last rest: 27/1
Lyrics - no.
Too many days to do it in Dan That seems a bit strange with the start. Are you planning a taper?
My stride is longer when my pace is quicker TippTop - somewhat shorter than yours though! No wonder I'm slow.................
Naughty of them to leave the garage full of rubbish Padams - glad you were able to get it sorted and the move went ok, hope you soon settle in.
You certainly seem to return to form very quickly TipTopp. Interestingly looking at the Garmin stats my …
I thought LK was next weekend OH - sorry to hear that the winds have hit you at the wrong time.
chicksta - it often takes my legs a few miles to join in - it was four this morning!
Pleased to hear that you are still planning to run and leave on ti…
It's grey, chilly and breezy here this morning too emzap. Hope you get to the hospital without too much hassle. Ashby is a training run.
I bet you feel better for having made a decision Wabo.
As I'm not racing at Ashby this week's miles are marath…
It will TR - you've put the work in.
York sj? I can do miles - it's pace that's my issue.
Wardi - I think I have my physio to thank, freeing my back seems to have made a huge difference. Great to hear that your legs are coming back.
Sounds like m…

Nothing like those highs but it's been warmer here chicksta and has felt so nice without the wind though unfortunately that's higher today and forecast to be picking up on…
That was a fast long run sj, bound to take a bit out of you.
Wow - lots of life stuff there WTGY. Hope you continue to be happy in your new home.
Nice pace TR.
How are you feeling Jooligan?
Well physio (or something) seems to have worked as whil…
Enjoy the mtb Gobi - nicer weather for it.
My physio is brutal but effective Hazel - everything felt much better when I ran this morning and pace was better too. Lyrics preferably topical or of relevance to you.
Hope physio has helped emzap. You …
That sounds rough OH - hope you aren't too badly hurt.
Nice back to back longer runs Poppy.
It's hard not to fight the wind Hazel though when it was really bad here there were times I just stopped and turned my back until the worst of a gust had p…
You need to do what's going to make you happy Wabo.
When is your next race Gobi?
A beautiful morning here too Alehouse. Yes, standard Ashby plan. I'd quite like to race it one year and see what I could do but that will have to wait until I can run…
I agree that spring marathons are much harder to train for than autumn ones Alehouse. Is it time to go back to the doctor do you think?
Glad you enjoyed the weekend but sorry to hear that you're still having work stress hazel - that's taking a long…
Not me TR. I'm having a big start to the week though (if I manage to bimble today's planned mileage) then backing off drastically from tomorrow in the hope of fresher legs. I'm hoping physio this afternoon will help too as my back has now been tweak…
You can't really though can you TR? Weather etc all impact. I've decided it's eye on the prize time and whatever happens at Ashby I'll suck it up.
How are you Jooligan?
EE - whilst it's important to us in the grand scheme of things it's something …
A much better weather day here Alehouse - hope you get the same.
Building back up nicely Poppy.
Hope work isn't too stressful Hazel.
I'm hoping/planning to PB at 52 - could be deluding myself of course.
chicksta - to be honest I've sort of writt…
That sounds like a rough few days Jooligan - hope you feel ok this morning.
CD - I remember them giving you the all clear, hope that's still the case.
I think the cumulative fatigue plays a big part TR. I'm trying to front load this week in the h…
