Discussion: Post Ramsay
in: Kitch; Kitch > 2012-04-17;
Someone who knows what they're talking about gave me this advice...
There does seem to be some annoying low level bug going around too, I can't shift it.
Ramsay Rounds = Bad for your running I think!
Thanks for the comments guys
its 3 months though
some kind of a virus I'm sure
but I think its more than that. There is a definite hangover. I suspect your record was a big factor in the subsequent fatigue. You went way out on a limb to do that. I'm sure you'll agree that what each of us did this year doesn't come close to where you went in 2009
Anyway I'm drunk
I just finaished off the remaning 60% of the Little Laura Lena celebratory bottle of wine. hopefully I'll get ill, then get better
Just saw Laura today - hurrah!
Maybe these big rounds really are bad?
Went back to look at post-Ramsey stuff. Basically, I never ran fast again. I sort-of knew that had happened, but with lots of other stuff going on, and getting old, I'd never really made a connection. I do remember Ian McMillan saying the same, assumed it was just anecdotal.
but I didn't actually do the round, I did half of it.
I'd say that, because of where I was on the route, I only spent an hour pushing myself once exhausted, then I stopped trying and trundled home. So 12 hours of effort feeling either strong or OK then an hour of struggle.
I think that if I did anything wrong it was running Carnethy when I was barely recovered from a cold.
I think there is a virus that just hangs on.
Anyway, for the time being I'm stuffed.
Apologies, I'm drifting off topic a bit. There's definitely a virus that just hangs on going around, several people commented on it, I had about 3 weeks a bit off colour (jogging but not running). I'm sure that's your current problem.
If I don't run fast anymore then I should probably try and do some consistent speedwork before drawing any other conclusions. :-)
And I was going to do that, regular meadows sessions was the plan, but thats not really got going.
Should come to the meadow, we've usually had a nice group of 4-5 people with andyd, claire, tess, chloe, rob etc all running similar pace.
(OK, about a minute slower than we used to, but this you'll have to come to terms with. 45 is a nasty transient age)
