Afternoon all.

After a weekend of what (in the interest of accuracy) I should probably describe as debauchery, I feel the need for at least a gentle sesh today (Monday is usually rest day to keep me fresh for club night). So, five or six, somewhere nice.

Hope your weekends went well, and enjoy today.

Can I ask what shoes you lot wear? I'm currently training in the latest Skylons but I thought I'd get a second pair for those days when your shoes get wet running in Winter weather. I don't want to get another pair of Skylons as I lose toe nails with this latest model (the previous skylon the fit was fine) and anyway I like to try new things!

Birdypie, just wait, a couple of months posting on here and you'll soon be knocking out 50 miles weeks and still think you are slacking!

Popsider - I've just bought a pair of New Balance 765s - bought them over the net, without trying them on, which sounds dodgy, but I read about them and they seemed to be what I needed (supportive, but not too cushioned),

Love 'em! done speed sessions and long runs in them over the last week and they're performing well.

I'm a big fan of 764s, they were the second shoe I ever bought, and pretty much all I've worn since. They're pretty different from Skylons though Popsider, you could always try NB 830s (I use those for races up to 10m and trackwork sometimes).

Afternoon all.

What: am 5 miles on the cross trainer, gym session and 20 minutes swimming drills, pm 1 hour spinning session.

Last rest: Sunday

24/11/2003 at 14:17

What: easy 4 miles at lunchtime (8.3-10m/m)

Have a good day all

Hello, all. Back after unscheduled and extremely frustrating one-month rest. Turns out I had a crack in kneecap I thought I had just bruised. Then got really bad cold which turned to chest infection and then bronchitis. Could hardly walk to the car, let alone run.

Feeling OK now so tried tentative 2-mile jog yesterday with no ill effects - hooray! Looks like I'm back, although I guess my fitness (such as it was) will have suffered somewhat in the last 4 weeks. Luckily my goal is GNR, which is 10 months away!
24/11/2003 at 14:23
Goodness Jill that sounds horrible painful. I think coming back after a month from that is really good going. Hope you enjoyed your two miler and good luck with the return to training
