      tuesday run on a wednesday. was not happy about this really, but got late tuesday so i lost momentum and decided it will have to be wednesday.
      run seem to go well although i thought it might of been longer but as usual was on a time constraint so decided at least 1hr of running will suffice. no clock watching here as just wanted to plot a course…[Read more]

      Pleasant steady amble round local streets by streetlight. Mile 2 the fastest as it contained a brief but intense emergency fartlek. Had to overtake a group of youths and didn’t fancy their demeanour and chanting. Didn’t hang around to exchange pleasantries – lol!

      S10k W2-R2: Runch with intervals

      Pretty straightforward session: 1k wu-1km fast-1km rec-1km fast-1km cd. Quite pleased both intervals were 4:54, similar enough to what I struggled doing the 400s on Monday. A good break from computer training too. Spotted 2 bunnies, 3 dogs (and their humans) and 4 magpies.

      13 Arches W11 R2
      Plan said 6 miles 2 easy, 2 with a mix of steep and Gradually hill reps, 2 miles cool down.
      For last real run before sun didn’t think it was a good idea to do this? i may be wrong but seems a bit much for the last run before a HM.

      Changed to 2 miles w/u 2 miles with pace and last mile C/D. With a good hill at the start of mile…[Read more]

    • Lizzy do you have a hm at the weekend then? Think if your feeling wiped out best not to push the last week – looks a cracking paced run here tho, great work ๐Ÿ™‚

    • If you target HM is this weekend, and especially if you are feeling under the weather, I think easing back a little is no a bad thing. Take good care of yourself between now and the big day, and get onto whatever remedy is your chosen weapon to kick that head cold into touch, and plenty of rest ๐Ÿ˜‰ x

    • Definitely good to take things quiet when you’re this close to a race, Lizzy, You’ve done all the training so really you just need to be fresh and hopefully also feeling recovered from colds and general weariness.

    • a good looking 5 when felling under the weather. now rest up, sleep, plenty of fluids. look forward to race day report👍

    • Sorry youโ€™re not feeling it at the moment, taper the rest and youโ€™ll be good to go x

    • See you Sunday @Lizzy ๐Ÿ™‚ I think you’ll be fine, a good couple of rest days between now and Sunday. Hopefully no illness comes over you by then.

      Easy 30′ for recovery. Had aimed to go yesterday and the day before yesterday, but both very busy days (the entire week will be like this…) and also raining cats & dogs, so didn’t have the spirit to step out of the doorstep. Painful, but -as usual- better with every step. Thank you all, dearest bugs, for your kind words and immense support…[Read more]

    • Well you finally got the chance to fit a RR in V.. Doesn’t look too bad either. hope the legs weren’t too tired? glad your seeing what an achievement your mara was now. Sometimes we dont see it for ourselves, just the negative side. Well done V

    • YAY well done on finally getting out there and getting it done but skipping out on the rain..tut tut lol ๐Ÿ™‚

    • That’s a good rec and good to have avoided the rain 😊. Glad to read you see your effort in a more positive light too

    • Really good to see you out easing those hard-working legs out V. And really good to hear that the disappointment is starting to settle. A little time and distance has a wonderful impact on perspective. Sending a big BugHug for you V x

    • Glad youโ€™re feeling better

      # RED Day 49
      So Vicky asked me if I could carry on with the run streak by walking I got to thinking would I be able to do a bit of run walk. To be safe I did it on the treadmill and it went like this.
      Walk 5 mins, run 5 mins
      Walk 2 mins, run 3 mins
      Walk 1 min, run 3 mins.
      Kept it easy no pushing myself. Feeling ok least no sharp pain happy…[Read more]

      Plan said 3 miles at 10:05. Anti-prog run, crept closer to the right pace with each mile: 9:47, 9:56 and 10:02. There’s just something about 10:05 that my legs don’t want to do! 🤣

  • Well done Chris. Thanks for all your support, much appreciated.

  • Congratulations, Chris! All the comments above fully justified: great running performances in recent weeks + a really supportive Bug + a lot of wider work in the parkrun community.

  • Well done both – excellent pic after 10k debut.ย  You both have a bit of a determined glint in the eye?!

  • Elizabeth became a registered member 16 hours, 45 minutes ago

  • Lovely Mum & Son running Vicky. What a good pace too! Not sure where he gets his good looks from, though!

  • So pleased to see that Chris is the MOM. Apart from his brilliant 1st Ultra, followed by that fine marathon, he is one of the nicest people on the Bug….. modest, always supportive and a thoroughly good guy. Well done Chris!!
