    Don’t think I’d of been brave enough to add strides but great all feels relatively good after the HM. Must mean your in fine shape. Well done

  • Ian S commented on the run 5 hours, 32 minutes ago

    Well done on the miles today, no ocd going on though. Hope the heel is OK tomorrow, its obviously getting you down.

  • Ian S commented on the run 5 hours, 34 minutes ago

    The poor old sun is getting the blame from everyone at present. Pretty good going though, could of been lots more Z3 in there. Good miles you put in here and a good time for Z2 pootling. Well done Mrs S xx

  • Looks like a good route, and hilly. Which is not bad as means no racing. Were not the speed merchant mountain goat type who threatens the podium so stock up with food, hydration pack, and off you go. Bit of hill training beforehand though I think.

      Rec Run #2

      Route was road, railway line, woods, railway line, road. Took it all very steady, making sure I never went to high into Z2, most was actually in Z1.
      First 1.5 mile, road & railway line the legs ached a bit more than I’d like. 9nce into the woods and the return home all…[Read more]

    • Sometimes post 48hr is worse than post 24 hr doms 😆 good to see the legs eased up and a good pace for a rec run 👍

    • Good route choice to try and dodge the heat – it’s definitely not as windy as yesterday that’s for sure – looks a spot on and very well behaved recovery Mr S 🙂 xx

    • Lovely controlled rec run!

    • I often find that day 2 post race is worse than day 1 – good to hear the rec run worked and the legs eased off a bit, rest day tomorrow?

    • Great pace for a rec run. Perfect, i’d say! Good job searching for cover. There is no cover where I am and I left my suncream at home 😢

    • Nice steady four-miler there! Did you run ON the railway line or next to it (somehow the prospect of running on the rail always freaks me out… -paaaah, we all have our own little demons)?

    • I like the strategic choice of route, Ian – very wise. Good to hear that the legs are following the recovery run script. The worked super hard at the weekend, so I guess they are entitled to take a day or so to perk up again 😉

    • sensible approach keeping in the shade as much as possible good rec miles

    Welcome to the bug Alan. Join in, make friends and log your runs. Enjoy.

  • Your right, it is warm. How did the run go, all feel ok, despite the heat.,

  • Super write up there, you drag us all in on that one. Pics are great and looks like a great place to run. Also sounds like you need to be very careful on that route, the pebbles, staircases, tree roots etc are all part of the trail experience, but tricky. Great you survived the few moments of muppetry.  Knocking 18 mins of last years time is…[Read more]

  • Nice medal, and no doubt hard earned

  • Ian S commented on the run 16 hours, 9 minutes ago

    So you preferred this to reps, sounds like you were outnumbered though. Pyramid sessions are good I find. The time and miles fly by. Hit some good paces in that session. Must of felt really tough in the warm. Nice work Richard

  • That all sounds very agreeable and definitely an enjoyable run. I’m sure the extra 5 mins downhill wouldn’t be a deal breaker. Looks and sounds like a good 30 mins rec. How did the foot feel going up & down the hill.

  • Looks very nice indeed, look forward to the write up.

  • Ian S commented on the run 1 day ago

    Only 3% is good going with hill and steps involved, must be getting the hang of going slower.,least for those miles you had various weather and various terrains so kept you busy. Well done

  • Ian S commented on the run 1 day ago

    Its ridiculously hot isn’t it so todays pace and not racing tomorrow are probably wise decisions. 5k at that temp is good work today, cold beer needed now.

  • Ian S commented on the run 1 day, 6 hours ago

    Rec runs are not normally fun but serve a purpose, same tomorrow would be good also. Good the Achilles eased out for you. Well done

  • Ian S commented on the run 1 day, 7 hours ago

    @mcSharon there’s an event called the Scorcher 10 in 10. I’m just doing one of the 10 days

    She was actually way in front of me at one point.

  • Ian S commented on the run 1 day, 9 hours ago

    Agree, sensible approach going forward. But no more mentions of giving up, that wont happen.
    I guess with your HR question probably not because if I went to low zone 1, I’m walking, surely a walk would still have some benefit, though I know what your asking and we need our resident expert to answer it. I’m sure she will soon.
    Good sensible…[Read more]

  • Ian S commented on the run 1 day, 9 hours ago

    Pushed on through then, least it wasn’t a higher ratio session so hopefully never added to the fatigue. Well done getting it done though and cracking on with the plan

  • Ian S commented on the run 1 day, 9 hours ago

    @ruthmc get what you mean, but last 2 pbs were in events and ran to heart rate. This event couldn’t of been more relaxed if it tried. Close by, knew the route etc. Its just the nature of HR training, one day you fly for a low HR the next you crawl for a high HR.
