Bl**dy h*ll! The lengths people will go to so that they can beat Martin with his time-zone advantage!

Today: Three mile recovery ru...umm, walk.

Why: A couple of (reassuring symmetrical) aching muscles after yesterday's intervals. And it's all I'm likely to have time for today.

Next week: A mountain or two, I hope. Taking running shoes as well.

What: 32 mile bike
Why: Saturday bike session
Last hard run: Thursday
Last rest day: Friday

Got out with a chap from the run club and alternated leading and drafting the entire route which got us round with a 20.5 mph average. I'm hoping we can get a couple more out then I think we'll be looking at the right side of a 21 mph average. Great fun and definitely easier than riding the same route solo at 19.5 mph average.

Once again feeling self righteous having got out the house at 7:30. Think this will be my longest run though as really tired towards the end.

What: am easy 8 mile, recce run for 'The Christmas Cracker' 5 mile road race I'm organising for boxing day in Whitstable, Kent [quick plug again!]I've ironed out the hills for this year i.e it's very flat & fast. Last year I managed to help organise & finish 4th. I hope to improve both this year but the race will come first!!!

What: pm 6 miles fast knocked nearly a minute of previous best time for route.
Thing's look good for Portsmouth 10 & Bristol 1/2.

Ginger is suposed to be an anti-inflamatery [spelt wrong I think]
Arnica is good for sore muscles, try asking your local health food shop.
These may work! hope your running soon.

What: 20 minutes cross training, followed by weightlifting in the gym: chest press, lats, flies, pulley row, shoulder press, then a short 4k run in which I monitored my running form closely.

Why: needed an all-over workout, and was also keen to see what I might do to improve my form. The awareness itself was helpful; the more I concentrated on keeping a stable yet relaxed core, using my arms efficiently, and keeping mindful of footstrike and breathing, the easier it felt to run, even as I progressively pushed the pace. Interesting!
