Well done JJ on winning that race :)))

Had a good run last night and another 7 miles this morning. The 7 miles were easy paced and slow, next week will try to do the 7 miles slightly faster. Cold and windy for most of the run but the sun peaked out for about 10 mins so I managed to take my gloves off after that!!!.

I have a 5k (which I think is about 5.5k) x-country race on Saturday so haven't decided how much running to do the rest of the week yet. May try a short faster 3 miler tomorrow and rest or swim on Friday.

I am so so very very legless now!
Club run was really hard I had the ladies captain running with me most of the time and she is a trained PT and was wroking me damn hard!
She also said stay at about 7m for now and work on speed

62 mins and about 6m!! My 10K PB is 77 mins! No wonder I am knackered!!

If there is not a place for me at FLM which there probably wont be then I think Halstead in May is looking good, Docs tomorrow and then I shall enter.
Managed 4 miles on Tuesday which was good and no niggles... 2 miles today, the only thing I havnt done since the rehab started is 2 consecutive days so will try again tomorrow and see !
Once I am back up to 6 miles again then I think I will join my local club.

wow that fantastic EP you must be feeling great to have worked so hard.

I would have to work really, really hard to do 62 mins for 6 miles. A rest day tomorrow?

well the folks at club said it was 6-6.5m but I've just been looking at my map and think it is more like 5-5.5m which is more my pace

either way I am having a rest day tomorrow! Don't think my legs would let me consider anything!
10/11/2004 at 22:20
just over 2 miles for me
legs almost back to normal

no maras till FLM---eek
will have to practice during my ultras

last night our club chairman (owner of derby runner) said that he had a GPS for me!!
So excited as it's affordable (2nd hand but barely used) Also It's the Timex one (I have the HRM) which normaly comes with a watch too, but I don't need another watch so I get what I want for a bargain (saving £110 for new!)
I'll then be able to tell how long these club runs are! I'm sure most of them are shorter than they think they are.

i have the suicide 6 on the 21st, apparently I have a 5m XC the week after too (so says the ladies captain at club!)
Possibly an 8K XC the week after than at mum's (sorry not the Grim JJ!)
then nothing until Reading in March and FLM

I may consider the Bramley 20m if I am feeling good next year

Pix - I'm a bit concerned at the advice from your coach. You will not do a sub 5 (or anywhere near it) if you don't work on your endurance. Base and endurance phase first, work on speed comes later. It sounds like they just want you to run in the club events.

(sorry, if it sounds like I'm interfering)

her theory is she knows I can do endurance
that I should work on some speed for a while then endurance

after all it is still 23 weeks until FLM
She runs 3hrs marathons and is a trained PT.
I can see where she is coming from because after 2.5yrs of trotting along on my own I AM stuck in a pace rut and find it hard to get my legs to go faster even when I am breating fine - and I know I can run faster and for longer than I do alone.

that "4mths to a 4hr marathon" book also does speed work in the first weeks then tempo runs (it's a RW book)

I'm not saying that you are wrong shades (100 marathons must teach you something!) I'm just working out the reasons behind her thoughts

So you can run 20 miles comfortably at the moment?
