Hi All.

Flying to Port Elizabeth today for the Comrades road show. The Iron man is taking place there this week end so will be staying the week end to watch. The Iron Man consists of a 3.8 Km Swim, 180 km Cycle and a 42.2 km run. You have 17 hours to complete it. I will drown if I have to attempt to swim that far.

Good luck to all the runners, swimmers and cyclists for any week end races. Those on the injury bench it is a good time to watch some World Cup Cricket.

Trinirunner – Cystic Fibrosis permitting I will be at the start of Comrades again. I did not complete the down run in 2005 so have to make it this year. We must definitely meet up when you here. Going for my back to back medal.

Hollywood – Thanks for the advice. I am sure it can get very noisy.

Lyrics -?????

What – 8 km TT
Why – One last speed session before the marathon on Wednesday.
Last hard – A while ago

Morning peeps.

25 mins done and quite pleased that I've got rid of my doom and gloom.

Perspective is back. I'm at this level of fitness.

I realise that it's patience I need and structured progressive training to take me to where I want to go

Legs seem to have adapted to running again, but the rest of the body still isn't sure !!

Need to read back.

Have a good one peeps, if you can.
16/03/2007 at 07:01

What: 30 mins run outside
Why: part of my recovery programme

I was very nervous but it went well the icy cold air hitting my airways was a shock to the system:-)Just took it steady and somehow managed a negative split only bu 50 secs.

Have a good day out there

Morning All

MOL I look forward to seeing you and Trini at Comrades, I love my back to back medal its bigger than the standard Comrades one!

What: 21.5 miles in 3 hours 02 mins d & d.
Why: Comrades is coming
Last Hard: Today
Last rest: 47 days.

Today was tough the Shaml is blowing off the empty quarter at about 40 knots so ran the whole way in a sandstorm. So glad I run in sun glasses, hair was like straw at end! Temperatures way up at around 35C but probably only 10% Relative Humidity, its when teh wind blows off teh sea that the humidity goes through the roof. To the lady doing her 1st ever run in Dubai having just moved from the UK it must have been something truely different, but hey she got round which was quite something today in those conditions. Have a good day

testing conditions indeed DD, must have seemed a very long way in them

really pleased to read your report W/P. try nor to think about rome, enjoy being out there and doing it again and stick to the plan you've been given

good luck with the road show MOL and wednesday's marathon. in total agreement with you on the I/M swim! think scoobs is heading for that kind of swim though..

AF sounding nicely prepared now for FLM. i'm using your days rest as a way of counting (backwards) down to the big day

rotura sounds a fabulous setting for a marathon NZC, hope you get a cooler day and give it some

good luck at silverstone kenobi

what - 30 mins easy
why - sort of taper
last hard - 4 days
last rest - 3 days
16/03/2007 at 07:58
TmRoo: not just the being on your feet but I suppose your mind being occupied all day with the show must have a toll associated with it as well.

DD, you sure know how to show a lady a good time :-) Impressive long run.

WP, glad it went well.

What: 5k easy
Why: pop into gym and warm up before a bit of squash with mrs I (more like randomly wacking a ball around than squash to be honest), probably some core exercise and proper stretching session afterwards.
Last hard: sunday?
Last rest: monday

Micksta: will you be around for the KFL XC relays on sunday?

MOL - enjoy the show. I don't fancy IM South Africa - shark infested waters don't appeal to me! Maybe one day I'll get braver though.

Poppy - glad it went well - hope your shin is ok later. When's your next run?

DD - doesn't like that the kind of conditions I'd like to run in! I'm a cold weather runner.

What: a swim and a short turbo session later
Why: schedule
Last hard: wednesday
Last rest: monday
Lyrics: of course not, they're Gobi's!
16/03/2007 at 08:06

Treadmills post worries me-he ought to know which bit of the leg is which, roughly speaking;))

Get well soon mate

pammie-good luck with the driving
I have now done the motorway twice, and once been out all on my own

poppy-good news

No race for me this weekend-being sensible and doing tiny runs which no longer hurt, but are very very slow
16/03/2007 at 08:09
DubaiDave: The most I've managed in humid 35c temp is about 6miles whilst on holiday at Gran Canaria...respect!

Clink: What race is the taper in aid of?

I over-stretched my left piri the other week and it caused tightness in the glute, upper hamstring and lower back. I pre-booked a sports massage but I've been feeling really good for the last few days. Oh well, the guy who does the massage is a 6'4" ex-copper who hands out serious legit GBH :-(

What: Sports massage followed by Pillates and core-work.
Why: I don't like to run after a massage.
LastMassage: 11+ months ago.
16/03/2007 at 08:43

What: Nothing
Why: Rest Day
Last Hard: Wednesday
Last Rest: 5 days

Race well and enjoy the weekend.
16/03/2007 at 08:53

No 100 mile week - calf has been getting progressively worse all week and I had to bin the 2nd run yesterday. Booked in for a 40 min sports massage today. Really want to run East Hull on Sunday as I had planned - 64 / 60 split.

Been thinking about different pacing strategies for FLM. My best run in the build up was the Stamford 30k where I ran each 10k split faster that the previous one and I finished not far off where I would have done had I raced. How about setting off at 2:45 pace for the first 10k then running progressively harder? Any research or opinions on this?

TmR - which race did you do?
16/03/2007 at 09:05
