I joined the forum when on my way to Sainsburys in April 2008 as there was a ride going to Southend...
Then I got a job at Sainsburys for the lols..
I still don’t take life much more seriously.

    Agree! It’s crushing the day before a marathon!

    I wouldn’t pay too much attention to that tbh. While tapering for my marathon the watch trolled me most days saying unproductive or detraining, and now I’m just doing bare minimum it keeps telling me training is productive...

    Still struggling for motivation post marathon but beginning to get back to training last week.

    Had 5x1 mile in the plan on Thursday so took back one of the segments my new nemesis had off me, as it was almost exactly 1 mile long, took 35 seconds off his time so hopefully that’ll keep him busy for a bit while I find others that he now has that match my training plan! Though it was quite classy to do it on the third rep rather than just going all out specifically to regain the segment!

    2 swims back and beginning to feel like i can almost swim again, had the awful moment when you tumble turn too early and have nothing to push off today though jus to keep me in check!

    First run back post marathon, nice easy 19k in a group, legs felt pretty sluggish, but nice to be running in a group again!

    5k plan time!

    Is it bad etiquette to go on runs specifically targeting crs?

    Keep getting notifications that the same guy has taken a cr off me, no record of him in run Britain or power of 10, but some splits are pretty impressive, but the runs are definitely targeting crs with 6min kms with a sudden segment at 2:30 per km for 600m and then back to 6 min kms!

    Yes, I bought a theragun prime about 2 months ago, it seems to have helped, it’s better than a foam roller and stretching and not as good as a sports massage but then you can use it everyday...

    In truth I use it 2-3 times per week, as it’s pretty noisy, I can’t watch tv over it so it takes a dedicated 15 minutes to sit down to use it...

    Would be interested to try it, the Nikes are pretty insane and I have more than enough shoes to get me through to brighton in the autumn.

    Already done the half marathon and 10k while training, so just the 5k to do!

    Definitely..

    I’ve done every run and strength and conditioning session my coach has set since Christmas and completely cut our booze, and as a result lost 5kg, but with the right commitment it’s amazing how easy race day felt.. did the last km in about 3:30 which is my 800m reps pace!
