Now I dont normally post 2nd time round, but having just done my 5 miler, I will say that im totally happy with the time 32:32, the reason

1. Have just done a 12hr shift so little tired
2.Yesterdays speedwork session was very hard
3.Had to cross 2 roundabouts and 3 sets of traffic lights, loosing time.
4. and its bloody hot!!!!!

Looks as if things are coming together with the last few months of injury and physio treatments;-)

Beautiful day!

What: 3.5 miles easy-ish.
Why: a) it's too hot to flog myself, b) body seems to have gone into mutiny this week, c) I need to do my long run tomorrow as we're out all day Sunday, so I don't want to push it too hard today.
Last hard: Tuesday.
Last rest: Wednesday.

Feel as if all the training and preparation I put in to building up to Monday's 10K (which I was forced to miss) has vaporised: feel tired, heavy, and sluggish this week. Hopefully feel better next week!

Have a good weekend everyone, and good luck to all racing.

hi fellow trainers

what: treadmill intervals - 8*800m @ 8-10% above 10k race pace

yesterday's question inviting guesses as to what i'm training for was not a trick question. Thing is I don't really know...only got 10k type races in the calendar at the moment but want to seriously improve my HM time... confused - so am I, hence seeking guidance as to what track I was currently on.

Oh, and anyone got any tips on how to improve Lactic acid destruction capability? I find I can move into an anaerobic state for quite a time (eg up a long hill where I often overtake people) BUT to return to an aerobic state I have to slow down a lot after reaching the top/flat bits - All the folks I pass on the way up overtake me again. Should I be doing intervals with shorter recoveries?


oh and well done Popsider!

Morning all.

Today I shall be RESTING!!!!!!
First proper rest since Thursday last week.

Hope the weather gets a bit cooler for my extra-long plod on Sunday.

That's about all, really. Have fun.

What: Half hour/hour round the woods

Why: still keeping it simple while i try and get a grip on this FF strike

Last Hard: Mon

Last Rest: Yesterday, ankle area felt a bit stiff so rather than risk it as i have many times before and been layed up for a week after i decided not to chance it

Woke up a 4.20 this morning felt wide awake and decided if i was still awake at 5 i would get up and go for a run (this would have been my first pre-work run) needless to say i was not awake at 5, whether i would have gone had i have been awake is another story

What : zilch, nada, nuffink, etc.
Why : Think this bug is on its way out so I'll start training on Sunday as I've got a wedding to go to over the weekend

Have a good weekend all, and best of luck to you racers.

BTW My battles with the squirrel continue....

Today is a rest day for me also.

30/05/2003 at 11:07

Hi Peeps,

what: rest from tready today, doing some weight training later.

Peeps, I have a question for you. ( it remains me to put one thread out)

Do you run faster/easier on a treadmill or outside? I feel like I am faster running outside. Inodoors the miles don't come easy. What do you think?

Have a great day!
30/05/2003 at 11:24

I am sorry to hear that you are finding hard to run. Have you had a look at the article on the front page?
30/05/2003 at 13:57
Two hours cross country in the sun starting at 2:15pm
30/05/2003 at 14:03
Today: rest as well.
Have been building up intensity and frequency in the past couple of weeks and am starting to feel tired. Long run tomorrow, and then an easier week ending with a 10k next Sunday.
