Good luck at Worksop MM.

What: 8 miles @ marathon pace.
Why: need to do one a week. Am very resentful of family commitments today as I needed to do long run, that will now have to be done tomorrow and with speed work Mon not ideal.
I'm trying to figure out some lit routes since it's clear winter darkness will otherwise interfere too much with my training. Only the main street going through my village is (partially) lit, that's 1 mile from one end to the other.
Last hard: Wed night.
Last rest: yesterday.
16/11/2002 at 13:58

why:- Gosport 1/2M tomorrow

last hard: Wed

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend !

What - rest day. So did 2 hours of cross country skiing/falling over.
Why - 12.5 hilly miles yesterday so today ought to be a rest day really

A bruised and battered LizzyB wishes everyone racing tomorrow GOOD LUCK (esp at Worksop - top race)

That's not a rest day Lizzy!

At 6 o clock I grasped the nettle, put on a white Tshirt, reflective vest, flashing armband and a headtorch and left with the family verdict on my attire ringing in my ears:

'You look ridiculous.' (husband)
'...a complete twerp.' (teenage daughter)

and did 5 miles at 1/2 m pace along dark country lanes. On the way home a car slowed down behind me - it was my husband, redeeming himself by nipping out to the offie for some wine. Cheers!

Well done Laura

Managed 2.7 miles at about 7:40 per mile on my recovery run.
17/11/2002 at 12:30
What: my 18 mile "long slow distance" (LSD) run. (see 2nd entry, above). This was, one lap of the park (8 miles) plus 2 laps of the common, next to it (2 x 5 miles).

Why: my weekly long run, for whatever marathon I end up doing in March or April 2003.
