Know the feeling with yapping little f**kers Hilly, I always find a sharp kickup the rascals backside helps. (thats the owners, not the dogs....:D).
Although to be fair since I've started running off road more, I tend to find 95% of dog owners on the fields have impeccably trained dogs. Still wonder why people use the roads when we have perfectly good fields all around the village!?!
Reasonable week of running , did the second Yateley 10k on Weds night, pleased to dip under 40 (39.38ish) for the second race in succesion, hopefully proving the first was no fluke.
Easy run Thursday and yesterday ran 5*5mins fast (@10k pace) with 2min recovs at marathon pace = 6.5 miles in 45mins on the t/mill to run in new 2080s.
Short easy session today ahead of Bewl 15 tomorrow.
On the basis of recent long runs I should be around 1:46-48, but i don't know the terrain (although around a reservoir should be fairly flat).

Enjoy the weekend friends , and happy running.

Trainers back on, 4 mile route, no real problems.

You can have little idea how the relief to be able to run again after a week like last week. Maybe there's going to be a last run some time, but it wasn't last Tuesday's after all.

Reminded again how essential running is to general mobility. I just don't know anything else that gets rid of the stiffness in the same way.

R4L tomorrow. I'll rest up this pm, have had a taper worthy of a marathon, should be fun.

BR - pre-school trip to Scarborough - now there's a brave man!
05/07/2003 at 10:34

jeepers andy, wot %whr is 140 for u?
05/07/2003 at 11:56
its sub-lactate threshold roadrunner (at least it was... i haven't been tested for ages but i figure it can only have gone up since then and i'm still safe)

i take lots of CoQ10 and E and C (with bioflavonoids) and L-carnitine and cytochrome c oxidase before i go out anyway to be on the safe side

Hi spud

Why thats an impressive milage Andy Collier for a why not training session on the bike!

What sort of time is that likley to take.

Well the greatest event on earth takes place today, will Armstrong make it a 5th, I reckon so.

speedie its pretty flat round here i average just above 19 mph (per my trusty timex) over 60 or so miles at 140 hr then i tend to get a bit of HR drift so the speed drops to around 17 (if i'm being good and sticking to HR targets)

that's using aero bars... without them i'm about 1mph slower
