Have a good weekend, everyone, and best wishes to all who are racing.

What: Gym session, missing out the treadmill intervals. Jogging to Sutton Runner later to get Kevin the Teenager some running shoes.
Why: Always go to gym on Saturday mornings; 10K race tomorrow; Kevin's feet are growing at an alarming speed and she remains keen to run.
Last rest day: Yesterday.
Last hard day: Thursday.

Best of luck to everyone racing this weekend, looking forward to the reports.

What: 32 mile bike
Why: Saturday is bike day especially when the weather is like this.
Last Hard Run: Thursday.
Last Rest Day: Friday.

Had a lot of fun this morning. Five turned up for the Saturday loop. I wanted to check the calibration of my speedo against the rest of the group so just set it going when we all met up. Turns out everyone was within 0.1 mph average of each other as we rode 21.0 mph average for the middle 27 mile of the ride. Great to have a few people to draft with, makes an enormous difference to the speed you can maintain.

I'll be sorry once the weather changes as this really is a great workout and about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on :-)

4.5km treadmill in 19:45, followed by a nice long sauna.

Why? a dog (my dog!) ran between my legs yesterday causing me to become intimately aquainted with the lane about 200m from my house. - very short run and rather bruised and battered.

Last easy day : yesterday and today
21/09/2002 at 21:28
What: Running around since 6am getting ready for, doing, and tidying up after my daughter's second birthday
Why: could get soppy, best not
Last hard: don't ask
Last easy....well, today in terms of training
Got to pysche myself up for tomorrow morning's long run (aiming for 22 miles) and not be tempted by that bottle of Jacob's Creek (already quaffed too much!!), but stupidly invited a friend over when/if son goes to sleep! I'll let you know what happens
