Hi everybody,

Please feel free to share your runs here and chat about how it's all going,

Sometimes we don't feel like putting a whole post up but just want to share something small, so this is a great place for doing that during the week.

If youre a lurker it is a great place to say a little hi without the pressure of a full post.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy week

  • I'm recovering after last Sunday's marathon.

    Well, actually, I recovered surprisingly quickly - had a nice 4 km stroll the next morning and almost no problems walking up and down stairs. First run was a very gentle 4 km on the Wednesday, repeated Thursday (sore after that), and Saturday I inserted 10 minutes speed work into a gentle 6 km.

    I've got four weeks left from now until the Humber Half at the end of June, so my weekly longer runs will be 6 km (tick), 9 km, 12 km, 16 km and 21 km (the Humber Half). By then I expect to be up to 45-50 km/week, and I hope to have the self discipline to maintain that as regular volume for the rest of the year. Doing so so would make a great base for next winter's training for a spring marathon.

  • Glad to hear your recovery's coming along so well, Tomas!

  • I went on a nice 8.5K run on Saturday evening and it went much better than my run last Wednesday, although my pace was a bit slower than I'd like, but it was nice running along the fjord. I always love going out for walks when the nights are long. When it's still light out at 10pm, I always want to be out there enjoyed it, so I suspect that my shorter runs will be evening runs for the next few weeks. We'll see... It would definitely help if I could focus on work during the days. Being self-employed, I have to work especially hard at this time of year to make up for the loss of income during my summer holiday.

    Tomorrow's a sad day. After training with a PT for the past 3.5 years, tomorrow is my last day. I used to train with her twice a week, and dropped to once a week last year. But now I'm going to train all on my own - and save the money towards race entrance fees.

  • Ah yes, the long summer evenings. Definitely a good excuse for getting out there and enjoying the country side.

    Sorry to hear about your PT sessions coming to an end. But I'm sure you'll remember all she has taught you and carry on from strength to strength.

  • Thanks, Tomas! It was my decision to end the PT sessions, and she is definitely in my head now!

  • My run plan has just finished so I ran to suit myself today. I have a 10 mile race in about five weeks time so my focus will be on that now

  • i have no real plans, I would like to eat lots of cake.

  • I am pooping myself with the prospect of tomorrow's 10k. I know the route and the horrible slow inclines x2.5 which I hope will be better with other people about. I have not run at all this week with total rest to get rid of this cold bug. My last run was Thursday 26th may for a hot/sweaty 6 miles. Not feeling100% but going to try to finish regardless of time.

  • Yay go you H. You are so ready for this! Have a great race! Let us know how it goesπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜€

  • Thank you, I am somewhat scared of the prospect......

  • Good luck for today!
