WOW! Its true, you do run differently barefoot! I couldnt get anywhere near the speed I normally do, and the skin on the soles of my feet felt a lil' sore after, but gees! ABSOLUTELY NO PAIN! Gosh! Gee Whiz. I might giveol' Pirie another read and bring the zoom vapor IV's back out! Forget motion control/stability features, proper form here I come!

Eee happy birthday Legless.

What: 6m, but walked the last two. Wasn't feeling very well. I rather suspected that would happen, but the campaign for this month is to spend the time on the road, even if I have to walk. Rather walk today and be out again tomorrow than wreck todays run and tomorrows by pushing too hard.

Good luck to racers.

MM - I have two violins to set up by the end of the weekend. Whether I get there tomorrow will depend on whether that task is well in hand or not.

Hope to see you, and good luck if not. I'll tell my Mr. to look out for you.

18/01/2003 at 14:30

happy b/day, legless, and great running today.

KK - good on ya, mate. join the revolution. death to the politico-industrial syndicates that want to sell us over-priced, unnecessary, debilitating footwear.

stickless - heaps of admiration, as usual. good luck with the violins (is this code for something?)

what: 5K speed session to improve VO2max, viz. 8 x 800m with 75 second recoveries. 2M warm-up, 1M warm-down

why: a light speed sesh to convince myself that I haven't catastrophically overtrained, which seemingly I haven't ... yet.

last rest day: yesterday

last hard day: Thursday

good luck to all racers tomorrow - knock 'em dead.

18/01/2003 at 15:11
Not code, I really do mend and set up violins for the undiscerning poor!

Happy birthday Legless. I happen to have a son who's birthday is today.

What: 20 miles inside 3.30 marathon pace again. I was going to run about a min slower, but my body was in comfort zone at just under 8 min miling and it didn't feel like I was working too hard.
This pace is slower than my new marathon target of 3.20, but not as slow as my long run should be. I don't feel comfortable running slower, so should I not worry and do what I normally do and run with how I feel? Even though I was tired at the end I certainly could have run further at this pace.

Big mileage runners give me some advice please!

Could I ask all racers' this weekend to start new threads for their race reports, especially those doing Helsby, as there's so many of you. I want to make sure I read everyone's report, that's all.

Happy birthday legless.

Stickless, I can just imagine you setting up violins - a practical labour of love requiring delicate handling, soul and application, all of which you constantly demonstrate on the forum.

KK, love the barefoot running. I foresee a 'back to basics' campaign starting soon. I'll go with the revolution, especially after today's relentlessly souless visit to the new JJB store in Kendal, getting PE kit for my daughters. Not a running shoe in sight and - I didn't want to believe it but it's true - evidence of the return of the shell suit.
A huge airport hangar of a shop, I would be amazed if more than 5% of their merchandise ended up on a proper sweating body.

What: 30 mins easy.
Why: apparently good idea before tomorrow.
Last rest: yesterday.
Last hard: Wed tempo run.

Glad you're back on form today Achilles.

Congrats on your long run Hilly, sounds like you need to revise your whole training and pacing strategy with your current endurance!
18/01/2003 at 16:27
Happy Birthday legless

what: 9 mile easy cross country (95 mins)
had to walk some (felt very slow)
why: Nasty blister
today is my long run - no training tomorrow - relatives visiting

last hard; thursday
last rest: yesterday
18/01/2003 at 16:48
what: hill loops. 4*1200m lops on forest trails. i love this session but it's hard.
why: 'cos the coach sayd so and ev'ry bodee knaws ee's the boss.

time: 1. 4:09
2. 4:16
3. 4:13
4. 4:09

they all ahoud have been in the 4:05 - 4:09 range but maybe i'm slower because i've raced quitea lot this week and therefore the training took a blow. well back on track for this week. no more training for the next two weeks then i hvae district championships. top 6 qualify for the ulsters. then the top 6 of the ulsters qualify for the irish schools championships. i cannae wait. would enyone advise racing before these races, considering that i have to do well in these districts???

last rest: yesterday
last easy: thursday after race
last hrd: today.

byeee, phil
18/01/2003 at 16:51
i've just been informed that those loops are about 1300m
18/01/2003 at 17:08
belfast phil are you still at school?

Laura-I know I need to revise my training and pace but not really sure where to make the changes. Any advice from anyone would be appreciated. The sort of thing I need to know is should I try to run my shorter/speed sessions faster or........?

18/01/2003 at 18:26
Happy Birthday Legless!

What: 90 mins full body massage

Why: Have 10 booked up this month before marathon.

Last Hard: Squash on friday

Last Rest: Its got to be today........heaven

Good luck with all races tomorrow
