Morning all.

Last Rest: Wednesday.

Good luck on all racers this weekend.
04/10/2003 at 07:47
Morning all,

Last hard: Sunday
Last rest: 14 days

Good luck to anyone racing (esp. the L2B)
04/10/2003 at 07:59
Oh my god TT! That's impressive. Are you an athlete competing at a high level?
What: speed session that I was meant to do yesterday (couldn't be done, 'my little people needed me!')
Why: Abingdon Marathon in a couple of weeks
Last rest: yesterday
04/10/2003 at 08:03
Good luck Sarcs with whatever it is you're doing. How's it going. We must keep in touch re: Connemara - ooh, I think I'll start a thread on it!

Morning, took a rest yesterday instead of easy run.

Today, plan a 5 mile easy and 4 mile easy.

Why: Maltby 10 tomorrow.

Unfortunately I pigged out last night - had half a Vienetta and a large bag of nachos (not together). 3 pounds heavier this morning.

TT - will that be a regular thing now - 3 runs per day?
04/10/2003 at 08:41
Snicks - I'm a fat bloke looking to become 'an athlete competing at a high level' :o)

BR - 3 SESSIONS a day (2 runs & gym on weekdays). May switch a couple of gym sessions to runs when I am ready.

Lydiard (here I go again) spoke of achieving a 'near tireless state'. Once you get used to the steady mileage, 3 runs a day is not that big a deal - much easier than 26 miles in one go! The hard part is trying to fit in eating / football / living around it.

Morning All,

Been off the forum for a week or so, work committments etc.

Hilly, a belated CONGRATS on your fine performance at Cardiff.

Best of luck anyone racing this weekend, BR etc.

Training wise it has been a good week, low mileage, but I managed to get through my first post-injury 'hard' session without my legs falling off so happy about that.

What: 13-14M easy
Why: Doing the Sunday run today as out on the lash tonight with some old mates from Uni.
Last hard run: Tuesday
Last rest day: Yesterday

04/10/2003 at 09:08
Cheers MM and glad you're running is back on form!

Good luck racers!

TT-if only I had the time. I think I'd be divorced within 3 months should I take up running 3 sessions a day! Best of luck to you though and hope you achieve that "athlete competing at a high level" Have you got a time goal for how long it's going to take you to reach that level?

What:swim today
why:still marathon recovery, even though I feel ready to get straight back into training now. Will start back properly on Monday.
Last rest:most of the week
Last hard:Sunday
04/10/2003 at 09:29

what: rest today before a long run tomorrow.

Good luck everyone racing this weekend.
04/10/2003 at 09:38
Ditto Hilly.
Hugely impressed TT wish I had time for 3+ hours a day. Maybe I would if I didn't have kids!
Struggled to fit in 30minute tempo x-c (4.5miles) yesterday.

Today: easy 5 miles
Why: Alton Downland 10k tomorrow

Enjoy your weekend .
04/10/2003 at 09:48
MM, great news. Just don't go too fast too soon. Get the mileage back then worry about speed. FLM 2004 is a long way off.

TT - is that a `near tireless' state or `near TYREless' state:-)

Is this where we get to the concerns you expressed a few weeks ago of people trying to copy your training?

Back from 5 miles. Knocked 80 secs off my pb @ 140-145 bpm on the course. I'd like to think it was down to not running yesterday and 4 good quality aerobic 10+ milers in the week.

Good luck tomorrow Dustin.
04/10/2003 at 10:15

glad you're back running MM

what: possibly nothing (though not thru choice) - maybe 2-3 miles easy X-C mid-afternoon

why: Matthew has a school X-C event this p.m. and his race starts 1430 (fingers crossed for him - he had a cold last weekend & hasn't trained much recently). Then later, Mrs S is taking him & a mate to see Pirates of the Caribbean, so I get to look after Nicholas.

last hard day: Tue - though in terms of effect on knees & general stiffness this morning, yesterday comes q close. Need to start strengthening quads again to protect knees.
last rest day: Thu

May see if I can get 15 mins or so to jog round the X-C course before the races start this afternoon.
04/10/2003 at 10:24
morning all

what : not sure, probably nothing but maybe a swim / sauna
why : cold much better this morning so want to make sure i'm ok for tomorrow's long run
last hard : mon
last rest : fri

got a nice 20m run planned tomorrow along the Leeds-Liverpool canal from Keighley to Leeds. Hopefully marathon training can get back on track after losing this week to illness.
04/10/2003 at 10:57

What: done hills
Why: strength. Or masochism. I know it was one or the other.
Last hard: Thursday
Last rest: yesterday

This is the end of my 3 weeks of harder training. I've been doing more 'hard' sessions than usual (long run + 2 speed sessions + hills each week). I now have a week of tapering before the Great Cumbrian Run and, if it's all paid off, the sub-1:30 1/2 should be on the cards.

Have a good day everyone.
04/10/2003 at 12:37
Hi all. Good luck Sarcy, let us know what it is!

MM, glad to have you back - you, Snicks, Drew making appearances, seems like old times.

What - last long run before Abingdon, about 15 miles, I think, 2hr 51min (5/1 run/walk) I'm sure about. Still had something left in the legs at the end.

Run in honour of Steady, Mrs. Steady and the Unknown recipient. See Bone Marrow Donation thread on Injury forum.

Hi peeps

Today while watching paula on the telly we had a neighbour round who has a walking stick and guess what crashed onto right ankle and am meant to be running at southend tomorrow i winced in pain right on the bone. Hoping to be alright tomorrow (pppplease) I've sprayed some deep freeze on it and am trying to rest as much as possible but am dreading getting up tomorrow and not been able to walk on it.
04/10/2003 at 14:10

Just come back from 1hr 50 mins up and down hills in Hampstead. Cream crackered. But acheived the mileage I wanted this week. Rest tomorrow then a new week beckons.

TT - is that really 14 days without a rest? isn't your body rebelling??
04/10/2003 at 14:43

What: easy 10K
Why: base training
Last hard: tomorrow
Last rest: yesterday
