Resting today (shame, cos I fancy a run in the storm brewing up outside).

Tell-tale signs of legs feeling leaden on last night's club run.

Otherwise, on target this week for 35 miles, and feeling good.

Probably in duty-free getting hammered ;)

Afternoon all,

What: 5 miles steady at lunchtime. Feeling a bit better.

Didn't run last night - had to work late (again!)& will probably have to do so tonight. Will now look to resume normal training tomorrow.

Glad things are looking up Hilly.

Hello everyone,

We all seem to be happier today....good news!

What - probably a steady run to the stables & back tonight (3 miles each way)
Was gonna be resting today,(very hard club intervals last night!) but I've just been invited on a weekend away which means no running all weekend.
Why - see above...(and it saves petrol!)
Last hard - last nights intervals.
Last rest - Saturday

Have a good weekend everybody........

Hi everyone.

Ran a bit speedy today just to see if I could - but only over a short distance as I've got my long run tomorrow.

So... 1mile warmup at 11:00min/mile,
then 1mile at 9:30min/mile
and finally 1mile at 10:35min/mile.

Afternoon All

What: nothing
why: resting for 2 days prior to race

have a good day everybody

Don't know about any one else but I can hardly wait for the next instalment of the guinea pig saga.

Cornish Marathon on Sunday, a tough run up around and over Bodmin moor. Sadly I won't be there but there are one or two forumites who will be so good luck to them and to all other weekend racers. Go carefully.

Good luck in your race Venom, I know your looking for a good one!

BR well done on that mega mileage, all seems to be going well, good stuff.

3TL well done on your faster mile, good luck on your long run tomorrow.

I have been busy looking over the last year, even though its been a year of PB's Ive still had a nightmare due to injury, so am looking forward to the coming year, have looked at some races and fancy the following:

January: Hyde Park New Years day 10k
January: Dartford 10 Mile
January: Hyde Park end of month 5k
February: Tunbridge Wells Half
February: Hyde Park end of month 5k
March: Hastings Half
March: Hyde Park end of month 5k
April: Croydon 10k ( aiming a PB )
April: Hyde Park end of month 5k
July: London Olympic Triathlon
October: Croydon 10k
October: Hyde Park end of month 5k

Thats all at the moment, some will be done for training runs and others for racing, will see how things fall in place, looking forward to 2004 as I feel alot stronger than last year, just need to keep an eye on niggles and action them fast.

Happy racing over the weekend all.

Great news Hilly and TT.

Good luck all weekend racers.

Re. motivation, never had a problem with it. I think the key is to keep running disappointing marathons so you become desperate to do better and resort to any sort of ridiculous high mileage or intensive training to get there!
14/11/2003 at 17:25
Speedie my thought's on these races!

Hyde Park New Years day 10k....very fast ran 34min

Dartford 10 Mile............hilly ran 57min

Tunbridge Wells Half......hilly ran 1:16 myself

Hastings Half...........killer hill

Croydon 10k ( aiming a PB ).....finish 3rd once

Hey BR, you learnt something from me then!!!!!!!!

In Peru guinea pigs are sold in restaurants as novelty food to overseas visitors. Frankly I have seen more meat on a butcher's pencil. Lets hope the fluffy things haven't been diverted to Lima airport!

3000 miles a year is true dedication BR, puts my 2000 to shame!

Rest day today, short run before work tomorrow and long run on Sunday.
14/11/2003 at 20:46
What; nothing
Total to date a surprising 1919 miles. I must add up how much of that was on the trust old Treadmill!!
14/11/2003 at 20:47
Just counted mine for the year so far 3003.

BR I'll race you to 4000!!!!

What: Cat toilet training.
Why: In two weeks he has forgotten how to use a litter tray. I think it is 'cos he wants to go out and play so tomorrow he gets his wish.

Was thinking of Gym myself but time just frittered away, so that will be tomorrow instead with gentle run Sunday.

Good luck all you racers. Speedy recovery all injured.

8.1 miles in 53:22

Those are the bare stats of the run - in fact conditions were such that the time was not all that meaningful.

Wind had got up to 30 mph (gusting to 40+) & that in tandem with at least 2 heavy showers, made it v difficult to get into the sort of rhythm I needed. On the sheltered stretches (where the wind was across) I was in fact running at the pace I'd hoped for, without having to work too hard - but elsewhere - particularly on Hoylake and West Kirby promenades - it was difficult - except when I was being hurled downwind!

Good running Mike.

Speedie - I always enjoy your optimistic outlook. Keep looking forward!

Wardi - I'm glad I'm vegetarian!

Gym went well. 1 hour of hard non-impact CV stuff. Came within a hairs breath of going on the treadmill, but decided against it at the last moment. Would have been stupid if I had with this inflammation although it seems to be going down but that could be my imagination.

14/11/2003 at 22:35
