  • In my defence I'm heading for 750km, and 4600m assended on the bike.

    Might put altitude gain as a goal this year. Kinda surprised how high my numbers are so far, considering the climate.

  • tonights run will put me over 500mi for the year so far.

    This is bloody impressive BTW.

    Repped.

    Ooofff. Good effort. What are you training for?
    The next two days will take me over 500 for the year... kilometres that is.

  • london marathon.

  • Wow, really? You never said! How's your training going?

  • Any suggestions on the best way to carry wallet, biggish phone (5" screen) and keys when jogging. I'd imagine one of those bumbag/belt things but most seem tiny or big. Any recommendations? Cheers

    Sounds like you will smash it.
    Good luck.

    This is inspiring. Is anyone here a member of Chigwell & Epping Forest Orienteering Club?

  • last nights tempo was grim as fuck.

    was wearing my marathon kit so was slevless, grey skies meant it took the first mile of the run to even get a gps lock then the entire journey from moorgate to morden was directly into a headwind which garmin's weather report says was 22mph SSW. every time I stopped for traffic or kamikaze peds the wind seemed to die down for a second only to gust the second I got going again making it harder to get back on pace.

    in the end I ran most of the miles too fast as it was impossible to settle into a pace with the wind pushing at me constantly so I tended to power into it to keep the speed up only to end up a minute faster than pace.

    finished up after 14 miles feeling pretty much drained with new pb's in 400m, 1km, 15km, 10mi and 2nd fastest half marathon. knee's are understandably a bit sore today.

    If only there was some ridiculously easy way to automate the collection of such metrics so that if you ever wish to refer to them in future they were instantly available.

    Ah well, maybe in 20 years the technology will be ready.

  • I like the idea of a notebook. What are all the columns though?

    I have a wallchart with all my miles on, I'm thinking of getting some gold stars to reward myself for good weeks.

    I don't think he cares.

    I've written alot about not enjoying running that much recently.
    I solved it by running a route that involved randomly cutting through fields and up and down a hill, until I was not able to breathe.
    It was good.
    I blame my dislike of running recently on always doing the same route.

  • My stock advice is to hit the trails. Works pretty well when you're bored of road miles on the bike too. But I find it works my brain and legs in a whole new way running.

    But this year I've found getting back out on the tarmac to achieve some faster times, With a Nice repeatative running style was what I needed to get the Buzz back.

    Either way mixing Things up seems to be key.
