Why: friday = day off
Last hard run: Thursday
Last rest day: today

Why: I asked the question and therefore must suffer the consequences by putting into practice
last hard day: Tues

weekend - sat = rest, sun = not sure, possibly read these websites that Drew, Achilles,MM refer to. How else will I get close to 40 min 10k by the end of next year. I think I'll try typing "muscular skeletal breakdown" into Google - alternatively I'll just look in the mirror.

enjoy folks

Morning all. Grey and warm today, no wind, it might be raining but I dunno - been working since 7 a.m. and haven't put my contact lenses in yet!

What: 10 miles steady
Why: Cos training programme sez so
Last hard day: Yesterday 'Out and back' with the 'back' into a north wind. Still faster on the back tho', hurrah!
LAst rest day: Saturday

Speedie - I feel strangely tired reading what you have plnned today ...

Bogging horrible wet day here in Brum. Good day for curling up with a pile of back-copies of RW (not that I keep them, of course) and a mug of cocoa.

What: Swim after work. If I'm really efficient, make the students work through their lunch break, and miss the traffic jams I may get to the gym in time for a Pilates class first. Fifteen minutes late and it will be power yoga (don't tell Benz, please) and if the timetable overruns I'll suffer the indignity of aqua-aerobics. I KNOW aqua-aerobics is great exercise and all that, but the word association that comes my to mind is "hydrotherapy".
Why: I like to have a swim on Friday evenings. It's an enforced rest day otherwise.
Last hard day: Yesterday. If 30 minutes of stepper intervals and a 1km swim is hard. Also RAN a bit - almost a mile (in instalments) of the walk to the gym. Ankle a bit sore and stiff at the time but no worse for it today. Dammit - maybe I could have done Cheddar after all.
Last rest day: Tuesday.

Think I'll try coming back for a bit. Getting running again in spite of persistent gut trouble.

What: 4+M in lovely, lowering driving rain. No really, I'm developing a taste for it. Moderate to what passes as fast for me. Followed by 500m at what definitely passes for fast for me in the pool. Very happy with that. Particularly after a fast 7M in even wetter rain on Wednesday.

Glad you're back, Stickless. Sounds as if you're progressing at a fair old rate!
08/11/2002 at 11:32
Was going to do a track session today but heart rate is a bit too high for my liking so will take a rest instead.

Hopefully my HR will be back to normal tomorrow for my 20 miler.
08/11/2002 at 11:34
Missed out on club run last night, went on night out with flatmate who leaves today, went to watch pole dancing competition in local bar, can this be classed as cross training if I get some practise in, they were very energetic.

What: 5 - 6 miles including one mother of a hill.

Why: Missed Wednesday and feeling guilty

Long-ish run tomorrow, shortened due to visit of my son....

Recovery run Sunday 4.5 miles then back to the old routine next week.


After the total embarrassment of Windsor, I'm trying to get back into some reasonable kind of shape again...

Morning all.
P*ss*ng down here as well - and the Beeb rainfall radar suggests it's going to carry on doing so.

What: 7+ miles steady - or a bit faster than that if I feel good.
Why: In short, if I'm going to manage my Helsby target time (84 mins), I need to get used to running faster for longer.

last hard day: Tue
last rest day: Thu

Through the wind and through the rain,

What: 10 miles steady
Why: because I could not face anything else in the deluge, bit of speed work though when I tried to run really fast past big puddles before sadistic motorists splashed me, failed needless to say.

Last hard: wednesday
Last rest: yesterday
08/11/2002 at 12:20
What:4 mile recovery followed by weights


Why:Did speedwork yesterday and fancied something gentle.

Having not weight trained for a good while,it has taken me until today to recover from monday's session.The last four days have not been a bunch of laughs.
Walking like an extra from the 'Thriller' video.
I managed to loosen up with good pre-run warm ups.Funny that,running is fine but can't walk properly in between!
08/11/2002 at 12:41
What: Probably nothing, unless it stops raining.
Why: I never do anything on Friday - however, didn't run last night because I was too tired from lack of sleep this week (due to lying awake coughing half the night). Slept really well last night (probably due to exhaustion!) so MAY run tonight - but I'm not promising anything!
Last hard: Goodness knows.
Last rest: Yesterday.
08/11/2002 at 12:53
What: eating and drinking
Why: carbo loading and hydrating for Cheddar tomorrow
Last hard: Saturday (15 miles, snorkel required
Last rest: Yesterday
