Hello all,

Long time since I've been on the training thread - I got out of the habit! Must try to get more focussed tho....

What; either 6m easy or gym session, depends on how I feel this evening after work - or it could be a bottle of wine and a film.....
Why; it's been a v tough week (working hard, lack of sleep, Grandad poorly, feeling effects of several weeks of good training with a run or gym most days) and I've got a 10k on Sunday that I want to get a PB at, so I'm not going to pressure myself!

Last hard - Speedwork last Friday pm in the baking hot sun (ugh)
Last rest - Wednesday (and Tuesday, and Monday.....)

See ya!

06/06/2003 at 08:32
Morning all

Day off work today but have a local summer series time trial tonight so will most probably go to gym for strength and toning stuff!
Last hard- 1 and a half hour long run wed evening
Last rest- Saturday

Peeing down with rain here and it all looks a bit grim. Oh well maybe it'll brighten up later. Happy running.
06/06/2003 at 08:48
Raining here too

Later - 3 mile gentle, easy
Why - legs heavy after yesterdays' long run
Last rest - Weds
Last hard - speedwork Tuesday

Hoping legs are recovered enough to do a second speedwork (fartlek over 8 miles) tomorrow then a 4 mile race (Fun run?!!) on Sunday

Have a good day all
06/06/2003 at 08:59
Only grey here so far.

Will only run if my running mate turns up this pm. Otherwise, the trotters have been at it every day more or less, exorcising evil spirits derived from marking, so they need a day off.

I've got my own computer back, tee hee, tee hee.

Morning Folks,

bit overcast here in London, but its very muggy.

What : Well originally it was going to be a 10 miler of sorts basically heading towards Docklands because I'm bored of the same old route BUT last night I got lost on the club run and ended up finishing some 1/2 hour behind everyone else so I'll do something shorter (10k - normal route) today

Last Hard : Weeks ago
Last Rest : Tuesday

Have a good one folks

What - 6.5 miles recovery run after speedwork last night. Done at 0530, perfect timing to miss the rain. No snails only slugs, a Heron, 2 swans and a duck.

Last Hard - Last nights alternative club session was slightly unusual, more like my football training from years ago: comprised 8 x 40/50m sprints along zig zag course, jog 200m recovery then repeat twice more. Walk 200m recovery after set then repeat set. Apparently helps with accelaration. Was certainly intense!

Last rest - Wed
06/06/2003 at 09:26
What: 5 or 6 miles
Why: Because I can (see other thread)
06/06/2003 at 09:59
Morning all!!

Calves a bit tight today, not sure whether a couple of easy miles will do them good or whether to have a days rest. What do you guys think?

06/06/2003 at 10:01
OK, a quiz:

2 km is:

a) 1.2 miles
b) 1.6 miles

Therefore, reaching 2 km in 8.15 is:

a) Good pace for a sub-43 10k
b) 6-somthing minute mile pace and therefore ridiculously fast for someone like me and time to slow down.

RAce report later!
06/06/2003 at 10:05
2km is 1.25 Miles
06/06/2003 at 10:24
Morning all. Myone holiday day off and I have to drive up the bloody M6 to take the Mr to work in the pouring rain *humfph* ... could have done with a lie in too. Feel okay today... a bit knackered maybe but that's hardly surprising the up and down week I've had.

What: Tai Chi this afternoon (3:30-4:30)

Why: Because rest & relaxation is needed.

Last Hard: Wednesday's Gym stuff

Last Easy: Yesterday

Next Session: Not sure. Could be tomorrow on the bike, depends upon the weather really. Otherwise it'll be the 5K R4L on Sunday.

Have a good day all.

06/06/2003 at 10:25

what: 9.3K - probably steady, but will see how much I've got in my legs

why: as long a run as I've got time for this evening

last hard day: Wed
last rest day: Tue

.... so, at that point I was tussling with a v. fit looking woman, I was maybe third, then saw the 2km mark, looked at my watch and thought "Uh oh, I´m doing a Laura", stopped tussling and stopped competing and started feeling tired and suddenly an awful lot of people overtook me and I didn´t try to get in front of them and spent the rest of the race not looking at my watch and deciding that I´d messed up. It was only at about 7 km I realised that all my maths had been wrong and that although I was working hard(ish) I was running in ´miserable failure´style (short stride and not doing anything to correct it) so made a bit of effort over the last 3 km, had a dramatic sprint race at the finish with a bloke who tried so hard to beat me that he knocked over the nice lady giving out the medals and two other competitors in the finish chute ...

Anyway, finished 6th in the 18-39 age group, 11th overall (60 or so women took part) in 46.36. Not a great time, but the fact that I can still run sub-47 while feeling tired and unmotivated and not really trying too hard means that I must be getting fitter.

BTW for kr. 800 (about 6 quid) we got t-shirt (could choose the size), medal, PowerAde sports drink and sandwiches and coffee afterwards. There was also an amazingly generous spot prize list (but I didn´t win anything).

And I ran home afterwards.
