What: Meant to be 10 miler, maybe common sense will take over and I'll lie in the hot tub at the swimming pool for an hour or so.
Last hard:Tuesday
Last rest: Saturday

...but this morning, I have to wait in for a man to come and read our water meter.

Today: off to the pool at lunchtime for my weekly swim.

Last hard: Yesterday. Ran to the top of the local hill. Skillfully missed the rain and was rewarded with 30 mile views to the Bristol suspension bridges. It's what it's all about! Panting at the top, a question formed itself in my mind. What's the Swedish for 'hilly fartlek'?...

So tired yesterday but managed to do a cross training session (20 minutes bike, 10 minutes rower) as part of marathon / knee rehabilitation.

Today: 40 minutes steady
Why: Knee won't stand any speed training at the moment
Last hard day: See above
Last rest: Last Friday

Most of the time I hate the amount of travelling that I have to do in my job as its mostly within Europe - but I've just heard that I need to go to Canada on Sunday (nothing like a bit of notice) so I've postponed my planned holiday for week and will have a business meeting on Monday but then take Tuesday to have a look round Toronto) - Yahay

Martin go up the CN Tower for a meal, its not too expensive and the views are amazing, and if you have time take a trip to Toronto Island, its only 10-15 mins. the skyline of Toronto is wonderful from over there. I could go on all day of places to visit its one of my favourite cities. Keep promising ourselves another trip over there to go to the new ice hockey stadium to watch the Maple Leafs.

Thanks WW I'll put that on my agenda.

What: tempo run of 10 miles
Why because i need to run more quickly and I did and it was gloriously sunny, couple of dog encounters though.

Last hard: Tuesday
Last rest yesterday
15/11/2002 at 11:35
what: 8 miles in 52 mins (i.e. 6:30 pace)
why: key 1/2M session as suggested by various forumites

last hard day: Tue
last long day: Sun
last rest day: Mon

Have made the arbitrary decision to keep the length of this run 2 miles shorter than the previous Sunday's long run - this is the first time, and it will get longer! Also, will run this on the flat - seem to be seeing enough hills elsewhere in my schedule at the moment.
3 laps of my 4.3K course seems most appropriate - albeit rather boring.

What: Might try a short easy run later.
Why: have had a 48hr sickness bug and am feeling a little weak. On second thoughts might leave the run until the morning.
Last hard: Tues
Last rest: yesterday.

I hate being sick, can't remember the last time. My son has also had it and I work at the school he goes to, where it's been going round like 'hot cakes'. The delights of working with kids!
15/11/2002 at 12:08
What: Rest
Why: Still rationed by my physio. Sneaked an extra K last night. I won't tell if you don't.

Last hard: Sunday race
Last rest: Wednesday

Accidentaly founded the UK's first running club for cattle. Running across a particularly squelchy field, I was immediately surrounded by around 15 bovines who 8min/miled with me until I exited via the opposite stile. One or two talented ladies there. I'll have them fell running by Christmas.
