what: rest
why: rode a set 10m course on my bike last night and was 3 minutes over what I can do it in so legs must be tired, want to do a long run tomorrow too.

Are birds nesting at the moment because I was thinking of cutting down some bushes and conifers today?
23/05/2003 at 07:57
What:- 14 miles, steady

Why: - 'cos its start of half term and probably won't get much chance to get out next week!

Longest run since FLM, though have done a half mara 3 weeks ago so should be OK

Last rest - yesterday

Last hard - Mondays' 10k race

Have good weekend all

Have a great bank holiday weekend everyone!

morning folks

didn't get to post yesterday so belated "well dones" to drew, BR & MM. Hope leg mends soon laura and kids finally go to sleep snicks!. Enjoyed my hilly 10k on weds eve. A real "Grand old duke of York" course -
he had 200 runners
he ran them up to the top of the hill
he ran them round and round
and he ran them down again

Hill = ca 600foot climb over a mile, judging by the outcome for some of my faster colleagues it adds about 4 min -4min30 to the flat 10k time. I went well at the start, and up the hill struggled in the mist at the top, ran Ok down (this was what i really wanted to practice) but oh dear. the last mile run in was like treacle and got caught by 4. Such a chnage from Sunday, but I'd had no rest days so I reckon it just caught up with me :-(

What :rest on Thursday and today should be 8x800 15kph treadmill intervals but I'll shorten recovery to 300m jog
Why : speed and LA tolerance
last hard day : weds
last rest : thurs

Enjoy w/end racing folks, and easy on the cakes.

What: pool exercises, to stink crowded to attempt to swim. (Realized my state of temper wouldn't permit me to swim graciously nose to tail amongst the varied company I would be keeping.)

With luck my running partner will be around for a run this evening, thinking 4-6m along the river.

Leaning towards the Abingdon marathon: at least I have easy accomodation there, and one ought to at least attempt a marathon once in a lifetime. Pretty stupid idea in other ways, as my l. foot still turns into a flipper after two hours or so, and no, I won't have finished by then.

The other possibility is to try and find a long-distance trail run.

Morning One and all

What : nothing till Monday (10k)- tweaked my ankle running on a trail last night and still coughing like a 60-a-day man. Still as I like my work colleagues so much I thought I'd bring my illness in to work for all to share! :-)

Have a good weekend everyone!
23/05/2003 at 10:15

Racing tonight. Four-race series over the bank hols (Tour of the Derwent Valley - hilly 5-milers type thing - aiming to do 3, might do the set, might do 1!). Travelling up this afternoon. Hooray! So no training updates til Monday night - can you bear to wait? ;-)

Have a great weekend, everyone, and don't be at home to Mr Injury.
23/05/2003 at 10:16
Still Ill some nothing again today!!

That's no training now since Monday!!!

Getting withdrawl symptons!!

Morning everyone,

What: am - 4 miles recovery run, pm - 8 miles or speed session, not sure what yet as it depends on my legs which currently feel totally ****ed

Why: day 3 of 6 day crash training programme

This programme involves consecutive and intensive hard days followed by an equal amount of recovery days. Find out if it works during Sheffield 1/2 on 1st June.

Last hard day: yesterday's 15 miles which included 3 x 2k at 5k pace

Last rest: Tuesday
