Sarah - So Dr. while you're here, I've got this nasty rash on my balearics! He he

Minni - We have to run fast to try and keep up with you fast ladies.

HADD training? What does that stand for, I'm still learning all the running jargon?

Anyone fancy a forum outing to an ACDC concert?

Simon, if you put a photo up, I will have a look and see if I can help!

Minni - Have you just been watching them live in Rio on BBC4. I took my OH to see them in conncert on one of our first dates 20yrs ago, awesome, and now they're on iTunes too. For those about to rock we salute you.

Sarah - I don't think I can compress that much to fit on here lol.

Yes Simon - brilliant. I've hot it on iPod and just added the DVD to my Christmas list. Ideal for the TM.

Hahaha, I've been having difficult compressing all my photos, even the small ones!

Sarah - HADD training is basically training the aerobic engine by running slowly. Distance running is about building fitness, strength, stamina. Pure speed is only the last 10% and is pretty useless on it's own. It's easy to train to run 400m fast. Not so easy to hold that pace for miles.

Thank you, that does make sense, I'm taking notes.

Minni - There seems to be talk of a 40th anniversary tour in 2013 but no official dates. I could only find some tribute bands. Watching again on my OH's ipad. Now where's my school uniform!

In bed drinking tea. Slightly hungover but not much. Should I go to park run or should I drift off back to zzzzzz.......

Hungover and sick, enough said

What did you decide on spoons?

I'm still trying to talk my OH in to going for a run or walk......but I don't think it's going to happen!

Hope you overcome your hangover soon DD

Morning everyone
Managed to abandon the Christmas party before it went all downhill so happy to report no dirty dancing and no hangover. Very proud of myself.
Just finished reading Chrissie Wellington's 'A life without limits' and feeling totally inspired. What an amazing woman.
It's looking nice out there for my 5m xc later.

You keep believing what you want to believe Spoons - for me speed work and tempo running are absolutely key to setting pbs and my HR stats have shown that my aerobic engine improves even when I'm not doing the slow stuff. I do think HADD style stuff has its place and I will go back to it for a bit but it's not a time efficient way to train. I do find it frustrating that you constantly twist the facts (ie conveniently forget the 11 and a half mins I took off my HM PB on Furman or the fact that I've only been running 20-25 miles a week of intense stuff since May yet still smashed my HM PB this autumn) to suit your own pre-conceived ideas.

One size definitely doesn't fit all. Running long and slow makes me very good at running long and slow. I'm naturally weak in terms of speed and if I don't work on it I lose it. No amount of slow running will make me faster. Tried and tested. I took it very easy and slowly after Copenhagen and it did nothing for me, I actually went backwards. We've agreed on it with Moz and will do more speedwork early on in the schedule this time round. But that's just me, it might work differently for others.
08/12/2012 at 10:49
Everyone's different. You definitely couldn't get the PBs Daren's got without the speedwork. If all you do is slow running then you're not going to get any faster but it's getting the right mix of easy and quality to suit the individual. I don't worry about the paces of my long or easy runs now because I know the key to me achieving a faster marathon is the speed work, whereas someone else would have that sorted and need to work more on the HADD type running. Daren, for example if he was marathon training.

We're all just an experiment of 1, as someone said the other day.

I'm heading to the hills now for 7m and to see what conditions are like ahead of a proposed 12m fell race tomorrow.

X post Brolish - we are very similar. Perhaps we could negotiate a discount and share the same schedule!

Lol Minni, I think it could work!
