After disappearing for a bit I thought I'd ghost in and start the training thread.

What early morning swim and that's my lot.

Hi Monique.Hope you had a good time in Prague.
Am doing 7 mile slow run Friday then Rainton 10k on Sunday morning so will be resting on Saturday.
Did Otley 10 mile on Wed.Tough and hilly but did 1:06 so quite pleased with my running.Just need to shed that elusive half a stone !

Hello night owls,

What - I'll see how I feel tomorrow.
Quite like the idea of a 7 mile off road (mostly)cycle to the nearest outdoor pool and doing a 100 lengths steady but we'll see.

I need to shed a half stone as well I very rashly bought three rather skimpy bikinis today- porridge thighs are a no-no, I am already being assisted in this as Dewsbury MacDonalds had no thick shakes today, Sso I walked out and had a sandwich instead.

Monique, of course we missed you. C'mon, who you trying to kid when you say you need to lose a half stone, you were skinny as a rail when I saw you at the Stafford 20, so unless you've been on the Sir Ranulph Fiennes Antartic Expedition diet of pure lard since March I find this very difficult to believe.

Mark, well done on the 10 miler, that's a fine time on a flat course and really going some for a hilly one, CONGRATS.

What: nowt
Why: Day off, a bit knackered and too much work to do (which is why I'm on the forum rather than working!).
Last hard run: Last night was quite tough, ended up doing ~8M @MP or else Tuesday's race.
Last rest day: Saturday / Today

Mark - rather you than me on the Otley 10k -well done! Who won it?

Just done 8 mile round bike ride into Barnsley to pick up some exam papers from the post office.

Will do another hour after work.

Why: today is rest day (i.e. no running) as it is race day Sunday

Last hard: Sun
Last rest: Weds
27/06/2003 at 07:58
Nothing today-it's to give my back extra chance to get better and because it would be rest day if I race on Sunday!

Fingers crossed!!

Welcome back Monique!

Well done Mark on race time!
27/06/2003 at 08:05

Morning all.

Rest day today, had a hard week with hard sessions and getting back into work on the nightshift and hayfever getting in the way.

Have an 18 miler on sunday so really should rest anyway.

BarnsleyRunner, seem to be hitting the bike a bit of late, not slipping in a triathlon are you somewhere.

Laura, yes I did bring the turbo trainer into the garden, the heat was too much by the end of the session, I had drank 1 litre in the hour!!!

Have a good day all.
27/06/2003 at 08:40

Just back from 3 miles with 2 mins "fast", 1 min recovery all way round, then v pleased with self 'cos steep hill to home and after running up it felt OK so jogged down and did it again!!

Used to ALWAYS walk this hill 6 months ago!

Anyway, thats enough for today, Cotswold Way Relay tomorrow so getting nervous of getting lost now!

Have good day all

Morning all
Don't feel quite so run down as i did the beginning of the week so went to gym with hubby yesterday for upper body training and i feel slightly better today.
So might go circuit training tonight with hubby or maybe a steady 3 miler.
Will be doing the Southampton 10k on Sunday so hope to be back to my old self by then!!

Happy runningxx
27/06/2003 at 09:22
Monique, in short yes. And someone was looking for you re MdS.

Morning run postponed in hopes that the nausea will have disappeared. Becoming a depressingly frequent occurrence. Otherwise fine - yippee!

Will therefore cycle rather than run out to nearby village to get my feet done. My crew in sailing has recently qualified to do pedicures. No black toenails at the moment, so it's a good time to try it! A departure from normal behaviour for sure.
27/06/2003 at 09:26
whoops, forgot:

Happy running, bravo!

Hilly, hope it's better. I know running doesn't work when backs are acute, but it's not a running injury is it? I mean, it's not provoked by and therefore will to some extent get better independently of running, will it?
27/06/2003 at 09:26
Moniqyu of course we missed you while you drank up Prague. Can't comment on half stones but am surprised thta running doesn't have weight categories like boxing.....:-). there again I wouldn't want evryone to get as skinny as Hantuchova...

Good Luck to weekend racers, I don't have any this w/e so good to let achilles recover for weds evening 6 miler.

What : either rest of static bike work at gym
why: too lazy to dust down the metal monster in the garage
last hard : ? yesterday
last rest : weds.

Really noticing the difference between first and last intervals on the bike - fist one usually has HR 140 rising to 155 last one 165 rising to 176 (max = 190). Presumably a function of increased anaerobic energy source. Think I need to go away and find out how to increase aerobic capacity as well as anaerobic tolerance....or ask the forum..

Morning! Mmmm, the mention of McDonalds thick shakes has given me a bit of a craving ... good job McDonalds is a walk away and I'm wearing crippling shoes otherwise I may be tempted to succumb!

What: Nothing - rest day.
Why: Would normally run today but as I'm out for a birthday do tonight did today's session last night instead - 4.1 miles at 7:57 pace; felt pretty comfortable although I don't think I could have managed it for another couple of miles, so if I do 10K on Sunday I must make sure I remember that!
Last hard: Last night, although not REALLY hard.
Last rest: Tuesday.

Have a good weekend everyone: good luck to all racing and look forward to reading those reports!
27/06/2003 at 09:46
Currently away on (another!) large project - less intense than the one I was on since March but nonetheless 140 miles away from home so attendance on training forum somewhat limited.

Today: indoor turbo trainer and rower
Why: Wife going out so I'm cast in then role of baby sitter
Last hard: Last Sunday
Last easy: 'Wednesday.

Have identified some bike time trials that I'm now thinking about entering. What a good target for a 25 mile time trail?
