Morning all, from a wet, warm and rapidly thawing Iceland.

What: Meant to be '5M easy including strides'. But as all roads and paths have turned from lovely grippy packed snow to wet lumpy ice, this will probably translate as '5 miles of slithering, slipping and falling over'
Why: I don't know, I really don't know

Last hard: Friday, pre thaw
Last rest: Saturday. And Sunday, as only managed 25 minutes of slithering.

I'll go away and stop whinging now.

What: Hopefully a gentle 4 miles.
Why: Haven't done anything since Wednesday due to still recovering from heavy cold and terrible weather. Have a chesty cough which is not helped by a run! Hoping to get back on track this week, but don't want to push it too hard tonight.

Feeling very cross with myself that I haven't been for a run since Thursday - normally run right through colds!

Hello everyone!

Hi all, back from happy hols, and trying to catch up with the trillion posts that have appeared since the 25th. Do any of you actually do any work?

What: Nothing
Why: SORE from yesterday's half, and have a nice new blister too.

Last hard: Yesterday
Last Rest: The whole of last week (not recommended half marathon preparation!)
04/11/2002 at 15:35

why: it wasn't my idea. set off for 6 but got lost
last hard: er... been injured, so I've got an excuse

Afternoon all :o)

What: 5.2 miles easy
Why: Recovery run
Last hard run: A long long time ago
Last rest: 9 days ago

After reading in RW of people's running streaks of 30+ years, I thought I would start a mini one. Going to try for 100 days, running every day. Up to 8 days at the moment. At least this way I will be able to force myself out of the door in the midst of winter.

Back again after a very relaxing week in Cyprus.Sun shone,kids behaved (within reason) and despite my best intentions,I didn't do any running.
Feel totally refreshed but it doesn't take long to get fed up again does it ?

So having not done any running for 9 days I'm going for a gentle 5 miler tonight.

It also looks like I've got plenty of race reports to plough through....
04/11/2002 at 18:09
What: Gentle 3 miles on road
Why: Bought some new shoes - Brooks Beast - so had to try them immediately...

Last hard: Sat
Last rest: Fri
04/11/2002 at 19:32
What: nothing
Why: too busy at work
Last hard day: yesterday
Last rest day: all last week!

Snicks, belated congratulations on Dublin. 3:42 is b***dy great. How did you manage that amazing negative split?????
