Been and done it:

What: 6 miles very steady.
Why: get confidence back.

First run of any length at all since the beginning of december. Nearly didn't start due to a sacroiliac joint false alarm. Went very very gingerly at first, but worked into it ok.

Saw lots and lots and lots of mud (or did I run in the stream bed?) and one kingfisher.

Nice to see you posting again Stickless, and happy new year to everyone. Hope the weather starts to improve soon.
What: 6 miles @ 75% whr. in freezing cold drizzle. Lovely start to the year's running! The lanes are flooded in several places.
Why: supposed to be marathon pace, don't know where I am this week with my schedule.
Last hard: Mon
Last rest: yesterday.
Now need to plan my 10 mile 1/2m pace run as per thread the other day.
01/01/2003 at 12:46
Happy New Year!

What: Just over 3.5 miles @ 7 minute mile pace.

Why: Its once round the block from the village. Heavy rain, the ford is very high and the lanes are floode in several places - fun! Passed a large group of ramblers and almost managed not to splash them.

Last Rest: Yesterday I suppose as I ended up concreting and fixing a leaky roof instead of running.

Next hard: Sunday's XC race
01/01/2003 at 12:59
HNY everyone, and all that nonsense.

What: Nothing.
Why: Raced yesterday, and got a sniffle/sinus thing today (n.b. NOT a hangover!).
Hard: Yesterday - botched pace, all but killed myself keeping going (cue violins).
Rest: Day before.

Well done, Stickless, here's hoping the progress continues.
01/01/2003 at 13:26
I wasn't as brave as some of you, waited until it stopped raining!

What: my"route 1" in 32 mins, hard session
Last rest: Yesterday

Happy New Year !
Hi stickless nice to see you back.
01/01/2003 at 14:56
"where was I?!" out partying! where do you think i was? ;)

needless to say today is a running write-off ;)

What a great start to the New Year, wind, rain and puddles upto my THIGHS!!!

What: 11km off road run, very tough conditions, the puddles came upto my thighs, the hills were muddy as hell, and the wind was very hard, oh and its still raining.

Why: off road day

Last Hard: yesterdays run was harder due to pace, but today was hard due to conditions.

Happy New Year to all!!
01/01/2003 at 15:28
What: 1 Mile Warmup, 4 Miles (1 min hard, 2 min easy), 800m easy, 800m fast finish

Why: Taper for XC this weekend

Last Hard: Today, due to grim conditions. I was wearing road shoes when the park was really more suited to spikes! Still, hopefully it'll work to my benefit, as I like choppy XC courses, due my strength, but lack of speed. This should make it CHOPPY!

Last Rest: Friday

Signing out, to see LOTR, T2T,

Wow! Amazing NY's Day run with the Club! Turned out to be closer to about 16 miles, along the coastal path, the river and then actually the sandhills (i.e. in real soft sand!), through the pinewoods and home along the dune path next to the coast road. Then to the Fisherman's Rest pub for some urgent carboloading (bitter - yum!) and several increasingly drunken games of pool :-)

This is my first year in a club - in fact, I only joined a few months ago - and it's one of the best things I ever did! Anyone out there feeling coy about joining a club - just go for it!

Sigh... What fun :-)
