Today is the second stage of my attempted recovery from foot injury. RICE has been religiously applied (well, mainly R and I with some E) and the results are encouraging. so...

What: Three-mile exploratory jolly.
Why: Have to find out how my running is doing.

Last hard: Circuits the other day
Last rest: Yesterday.

Morning, hope your injury's improving psi.

What: nothing.
Why: 10K race tomorrow.
Last hard: Thurs
Last rest: yesterday. Thought I wouldn't die by having 2 days off in a row since one or two niggles have appeared recently.

Long distance will be the focus from next week.
Mike, well done on your session yesterday, we won't see you for dust at Helsby.

Laura L,
best of luck with your 10K tomorrow, give it hell!

Psi,
glad to hear you're on the mend.

What: 18 miler
Why: Long run today as I'm off down to the smoke with my wife to meet up with an old college mate we haven't seen in years, so no doubt we'll be getting seriously lashed this evening!!
Last hard run: Today
Last rest day: Friday.

Best of luck to everyone racing this weekend, looking forward to the reports ;-)

Laura - good luck tomorrow.
PSI - take it easy,but glad to hear you're on the way back.

As for me well I'm doing the Waverley Harriers 5.5 mile x-c this afternoon (nr Farnham so I'm told).It'll be my first winter x-c (did 2 off roaders in the summer but the ground was dry then).
Shouldn't be too bad - i hope - most of my recent training runs have been moderately hilly off road, so I'd like to think I'm prepared,also had the last two days off so I should be rested.

Good luck anyone else racing this weekend.

first post this week but have been quite active.

what : rest day
why : resting before Leeds Abbey Dash 10k tomorrow
last hard : yesterday's gym session incl. 15 min hard intervals on treadmill and 2000 m row.
last rest : Tuesday and today

Really hoping to get under 50 mins for first time. Will be spurred on by my FLM acceptance. Last year did 52 mins with little training and have trained well so will feel disappointed if i don't get it.
30/11/2002 at 12:38

Last rest: Sunday
Last hard: yesterday

Note to self. Must not whinge about the weather or will get in trouble with Achilles again. :-)

Good luck everyone racing this weekend - may your feet have wings
30/11/2002 at 13:14
What: Rest. Probably.
Why: Well, it's two rests in a row, but I'm in need of one long run plus one rest day this weekend and (a) today is hectic, tomorrow free, and (b) got a bit of a knee twinge that could do with an extra day off. Similar to Laura L, actually.
Hard: Been easy on myself lately to nurse myself through iffy knee stuff.
Rest: Yesterday.

Happy running/resting all.
30/11/2002 at 13:16
Oh, and good luck with it, Psi. I know it's been tough.

Achilles - going for championship entry then? :)

Update to mine: I've decided to have another day or two of rest before I do anything such as go for another run. My foot is noticeably better but I don't want to overdo it. :)
30/11/2002 at 16:23
Good luck at the Abbey dash Drew et al. Do you get a xmas pud at the end as well?

Lizzy - read your letter, perhaps we should print out your training threads and send them in under the heading: 'Iceland Training - the Truth Revealed'.

Happy birthday to me. 44 today.
(N.B. Even though it apparently is my starsign, I refuse to offer anything to that astrology thread on another forum!)

what: nothing
why: This wasn't the plan for today, but this a.m. went to watch Matthew run in a handicap race at school. In running down the road to be able to shout support for him as he turned off onto a track, I strained my calf! Bloody daft way to get injured. May be improving slightly - hope so, with long run due tomorrow.

last hard day: Fri
last long day: Sun
last rest day: Mon

Good luck to all the racers this weekend.
Do us all a favour and write the reports in a separate thread in the Events forum will you - please? Saves the bother of hunting through lots of pages.

Laura - the way it's going you might not see me for dust at the start - but you might well see me going backwards somewhere round the 10 mile marker....
30/11/2002 at 18:34
actually, I have a hunch that Lizzy doesn't in fact live in Iceland but is writing from Tunbridge Wells ...

the prevailing aura of gloom, the tell-tale absense of real daylight, the impossibility of finding a decent pub - these are pretty convincing clues.

she deserves all our sympathy.

Í dreamt about pubs last night ....
