  1. RUN
    good Kentish Town easy 30 mins 3.24 km 00:30 14:54 pace

    Having a nightmare uploading to DM so just a manual workout.

      Consistency is the way! Excellent getting that in - sounds like the rolling is doing its job :)

    good Sheldon easy 5k 5 km 00:44 14:04 pace

    Foam rolled Saturday night, then again before heading out this evening. Also did some warm up exercises. It made a huge difference: 40 secs faster, lower average and max HR and legs felt good if a ... read more

      A great attitude Andy, good work carrying on despite feeling a bit knackered! And wise to include strength training in your regimen, I need to remind myself to do more of that:-)

      Some runs are like this, but you got it done - thats what counts. I would be lost without my foam roller, great for recovery.

  4. walk
    great Rest day Walk 6.51 km 01:06 16:14 pace

    Another walk to quench the need to get out, sticking to three runs a week for a while.
    Raining throughout but dressed appropriately so wasn't a problem.

    good How lost can you get on a 5K ... 11 km 01:40 14:35 pace

    The answer: very lost, in my case!

    Somehow managed to get so hopelessly lost that a 5K jog/walk ended up being 11K! Generally stuck to my pattern of jogging until mid-160s HR then walk whilst it... read more

  12. No run this morning - horrible toothache of the last few days has got the better of me! Dentist booked for tomorrow, should hopefully get another run in this week.

  13. RUN
    good easy 5k (but not easy enough!) 5 km 00:36 11:37 pace

    Same again, out before 6AM. Almost five minutes faster but at the expense of higher HR (184-198 - I once got 197 on a MHR test!). Have to remember to keep it easy next time but fun to be back at it.

  14. RUN

    Morning (or evening) all. Hope everyone's had a great start to 2015.

      Thanks guys. @ Tom, I never built a base previously so if this keeps me slow enough to increase the mileage I'm okay to stick with it for now. Saying that, I'll be glad when I can run again!
