I know I don't often post on here but I am absolutly over the moon, Thats 20mins off my last 13.1 miles time and there were hills. I'm well on my way to my sub 2hr.

Yup, party night last night and a steady run in fresh, crisp clear air has cleared the head. Ice still about though, especially on the back roads !

Well done Josie, really fantastic !! 20 mins off with hills - brilliant.

Good effort, JJ, especially the day after a hard sesh.

What: Rest up.
Why: Racing tomorrow.
Hard: Thursday 5 mile flat out.
Rest: Wednesday.

Had a cracking gentle 30 mins last night at HM pace. Loved every second (once I'd got warm!). So important to forget 'training' and run for fun once in a while!

Does that make me a "jogger"?

Bravo Josie!

What: 6 Miles. (1hr, 14min, but I don't mind that: I got out and did it). First post cold.

Absolutely gorgeous in the frost.

Legs still very numb, left foot pretty much not functioning, so there's lots to get back. Still, it's a start.

Well done on your pb Josie. A 2hr10 run and posting befoe 10-30. That in itself is worthy of praise.

As for me, by comparison a bit more leisurely.

what : easy 4m
why : schedule says so and don't want too hard a session before tomorrow's club cross country.
last hard : thursday
last rest : tuesday

New HRM arrived in post today (Polar A3) so it'll be making it's first journey with me. Hopefully i can use it to help me run slow enough. May post update later.....

Was meant to be on a easy day, but after yesterdays 80lengths of the pool, decided to test myself, and eneded up doing it 26mins, with no effort at all........
11/01/2003 at 13:45
I wouldn't mind taking 20 mins off my pb for the 1/2. Good stuff.

What: 40mins easy with 2 sets of 5x100m strides.

Last rest: Wednesday.

Have a good one!

Well run Josie, sub 2hrs just round the corner!

Good luck all racers this weekend including me tomorrow. My calves are feeling a bit stiff so hoping today's rest will be enough to ease them.

So nothing for today, just total rest, well apart from birthday present shopping.

Last hard: XC race last Wednesday
Last rest: yesterday

Off to lie down. Not feeling brilliant still.
