Can't believe I ran midfoot down Bishopsgate wearing my clunky adidas clogs. Am looking forward to last day of post-FLM recovery so I can resume 'easy' training from Sunday.

What: Kids' monthly handicap. CV on Bike, leg-work, stretches. Dinner party in the evening.
Why: Strength building
LastHard: FLM05
LastRest: 23Apr05

Good luck to all racers.

Last rest: since March 23

What: 12 miles with running group - lots of chatter - so much so that a few of us missed the turnoff and had to climb a steep hill that we otherwise wouldn't have had to.
Why: last long run before next Saturday's marathon.
Good luck to all those racing this weekend.

So I cant get down stairs never mind trying to think of running and this a long weekend:-( and lost 3 days work we are a small company and only myself who does my work so I cant afford to have time of work my job could be in jepody!!!

Hope everyone has a good day and those LSR enjoy it have a couple of miles for me.

Good luck all racers and enjoy the bank holiday!!!

7M done with speedier youngster, OK not really quick but for me at 6:15am it has hard enough, should make this afternoon interesting :-)

Morning all

I'd like to the sun back too, because...

Off to test drive a new mini this afternoon as I have to speedily replace my car which was written off after being smashed into at high speed on the M1 a couple of weeks ago.... there but by the grace of God, etc.

Run safe and happy all.

30/04/2005 at 08:19
WP - really feel for you. I have period back problems, which aren't anywhere near as bad as yours sound, but are really unpleasant and frustrating. Never got anywhere with my GP but I swear by my osteopath.

30/04/2005 at 08:21
Period = periodic !!

(That'd be something else entirely!! Blimey only been on this fred a couple of days and I'm embarrassing meself already! I'll get me coat!)
30/04/2005 at 08:24

What: 3+ hours slowly
why: last long one before taper
last hard: ummm... last Saturday
last rest: nearly all week cos I felt dodgy.

Morning all- enjoying this thread after moving over from 2:45 thread- apologies for barging in so clumsily!

What: 8 miles steady
Why: I lack imagination and I just love my 8 mile route which takes me through windsor great park.
Last Rest: Wednesday
Last Hard: FLM

Thanks BR, FAB for advice on lyrics

Those who have followed the 2:45 thread will know that I have a long list of marathons under my belt but that 2:45 target remains elusive. Hopefully marathon number 20- Cardiff will be different.

lashing down this morning, thought they said it was going to be a nice weekend?

good wishes for speedie shin recovery alehouse, not nice.

WP you're having an awful time, can't the gp refer you to a back specialist if he's unable to diagnose?

aggie - new mini, i'd love one my car is starting to feel it's age. done too many miles (sounds like me)

first track race of the season for me tomorrow, some trepidation - it's not my specialist subject but trying to think of it as speed training part of my 10k plan.

what - rest day
why - race tomorrow
last hard - thursday
last rest - monday

good luck all racers and have a great bank hol all

Long time no forum, even had to get RW to send my old password as I've got a new computer and had lost old cookies.

I've been prompted to log on after a long phone call with another forumite the other night regarding an event we have recklessly gone in for, more will be revealed soon! The pressure's on to train in the meantime, so plan to post regularly from now on, or risk humiliation in July. (erm, do you want to admit it now LB?)

Must pass on belated congrats to everyone's marathon efforts but in particular Hilly, I believe you ran an amazing 3.06? That's fantastic and totally deserved, you must still be on a high.

WP, I'm really sorry to hear about your back, please get proper help from a good osteopath. I know just how debilitating it is, especially with the job pressure on top, take care.

Training wise running 4 times/week, plus I've started climbing which is not only great fun but brilliant strength training and good for my back. My neck/shoulder probs from this winter have been traced back to an 18 yr old skiing injury (broke femur twice in 3 years) so have exercises for improving my core stability. I'll never get full mobility back in my hip but so long as I can still run, climb & be active without back pain I'm happy.

What: Coniston fell race, 9 miles, 3500 ft ascent.
Why: Personal start of fell racing season. Terrible weather!
Last hard: Thurs - 1.5 hr run, plus 2.5 hrs climbing.
Last rest: yesterday.

have a good weekend all.
30/04/2005 at 09:28
WP - get it seen to!

SR - good to have you back:)

What: 8 miles am / Hull vs Sheff Weds pm

Why: recovery / to lord it over Yorkshire rivals that we're going up:)

Last hard: Weds

Last rest: 190 days
