No training as inlaws are staying over, but thought you'd appreciate this.

I intended to start work early and finish early, as off to see a show in the west-end tonight. (Got to bed at 1am) Set alarm for 6am, Woke up with a nudge from the missus it was still dark - jumped in shower - got out of shower looked at clock - 3.45am. Debated whether to do a 12hr day - went back to bed. Other half wakes me at 8am. (Intended to be at work an hour ago/now late for normal day - Clock was set 12hrs ahead - "someone" had been using hairdryer and unplugged the alarm) - Insane mad dash for the door. Forgot my wallet - now hungry and skint.

At least i'd had my shower.

Morning all – I have to concur with Lanny’s weather assessment it was all of 1 degree when I left for work this morning me Newcastle is a bit warmer - 6 when I got here

Had a few new runners turned up at the club last night – all of them had a good running background and I ended up running with a lady that turned out to be a very fit police officer – she ran the legs off me – 7.5-mile at race pace – ouch

What : Swim
Why : Active recovery and working on swimming endurance

Last Hard Day : Yesterday
Last Rest Day : Wednesday

10 mile run last night with club, one of the blokes is following a HR schedule of working at low HR, long runs, which suits both of us, so 2 hours on legs last night, felt ok this morning thought I might have needed a crane to get out of the pit, so think I'll have a rest today.
18/10/2002 at 10:17
Frost on the windscreen this morning! Brrrrrr.

No idea what I'll do tonight, I feel I need a severe butt kick this week despite a good start (ran Mon/Tues, but not Wed/Thurs despite planning to) but there's footie on telly on Saturday, so I'll escape for a long'un then.

Gorgeous day in Brum. Bit chilly, but bright and sunny and calm. Perfect for running. I really want to go out for a run. Tethered to seminar room teaching/doing last-minute preparation for ad hoc sessions with students all day. Bah! I hasten to add that I do like my students very much.

What: Swim after work, then the weekly shopping expedition.
Why: Did a lot yesterday (7 mile run, weights, 1km swim) and plan to do some gentle climbing from Malvern with Kevin the Teenager tomorrow.
Last hard day: Yesterday.
Last rest day: Monday.
