Dead easy and not applicable to me but it's the first lyric that sprang to mind. Was going to post on yesterday's thread but thought I might as well get today's started instead.

What: 3k fast (for me)
Why: speed session. Thought it was going to be 3x1k but coach thought it'd be a bit of a change from intervals to do it as an all in one.
Last hard: Sunday
Last rest: Tuesday

Gym day - little bit of CV (x-trainer, row) general resistance and core stability.

Have a good one folks

What: 10 mile with 40min@ 1/2 Mara pace
Why: Should have done this wed but opted for a track session
Last Rest: A week ago

Last Beer: Sunday

Another day on my lengthy comeback trail!

My recovery is hopefully gathering pace (if not speed!), last night I ran 5k on the treadmill with the significance that this was my second run in seven days. No pain after the run (other than the aches and pains of someone who hasn't run for a long time!). Just for the record the 5k was completed in a very easy 26 minutes.

Today will be a day off as I'm certainly no going to push the recovery then a long cycle ride on Saturday and maybe, just maybe another run on Sunday.

If I can reach three runs a week by the end of March then that will be fantastic, but I'm quite happey to keep at one or two runs a week if it means running pain free.

I have a question regarding shoes and orthotics that I will post on the equipment thread.

Hello All,

Haven't been on these daily training threads for a few days as I was recovering from a sciatic nerve problem from last Saturday. In the meantime, I've been doing daily exercises for the whole body (ie weights, pressups, sit-ups, squats etc etc), 30 mins on an exercise bike for CV work (at easy effort) and then carrying out the various pose drills.

Saw my physio yesterday and he's given the go ahead for easy runs buiding up to normality by next Thursday - or sooner if I feel up to it.

Am well pleased that he is also a runner and hence is greatly aware of my 'trials & tribulations'. He gave me a book all about muscle physiology. There's a section on endurance training which is similar to the 'infamous' Hadd article on the Base Training thread.

Anyway completed my normal 4.30AM stint today:
what : 60mins @ LT-15
why : Stage2
last rest : If I've cross-trained everyday then does it still count as a 'rest' from running?

Thanks to all peeps for posting/emailing me their get well wishes. I really appreciated it.

A speedy recovery to all those who are nursing injuries at the moment. Hang in there.

Have a good day and great weekend,

Morning all,

What : 5 miles steady into work, done.

Wanted to run about 6:40 mins/mile today. Set off at what I thought was the right effort level, checked my watch after a mile ... 7:15, d'oh! Decided that legs wern't playing today so settled into that tempo rather than pushing it. Tomorrow off then big track session on Sunday.

Happy Friday everyone, mine's a stella!
