What - definitely 5 easy miles showing clubmate part of the Barnsley Boundary Route, then I think I might do an extra 10 @ 7m/m pace on my own.

But - full of chicken and crisps and lager after bbq.

So - we'll wait and see

Thought the lyrics appropriate as my training partner is away doing the National Vets Track Championship so 2 solo runs.

Morning, beat me to it!

What - Rest day

What: well it was going to be 11 miles steady (why 11 - because I want to crack 50 for the week), but feel I might benefit more from a run to the track and some shorter intervals than I normally do, maybe 400-1000s? But then I had July and August down for sharpening work so maybe I should stick to 4*1600s? Let's sleep on it.

Good luck to all you racers.

Popsider, why not do both? Warm up for 3 miles, do your 4x1600 (making 7) with 400m jog recoveries (making 8) then warm down for 3 miles.

last rest : ahhh, thats much easier, yesterday.

good luck all todays's racers.

6.9 miles today and did it at Level 3-4 for HRM and it felt a lot better no feeling faint at end and needing too lie down.

Good luck to all racers

11 miles or so. Slow.

A sort of compromise long run since did about 8 yesterday evening. Looks to be fine racing weather hereabouts. Good luck guys/gals.

Not too many aches after yesterday's unfamiliar exercise (tennis)so efforts on the upper body conditioning in the gym must be doing something. My game was pretty cr@p though!

What - 7 miles slow
Why - only planned to do 5 but got caught up in the wrong group. Only wanted 5 cos I'm doing Tour of Epsom Series with a race every night next week and I can't remember when I last ran 5 days in a row.
Last hard - Thursday
Last easy - Wednesday (resting Fri/Sat)

What: Housecleaning (done it). Have locked trainers away, as legs need a couple of days off, and I don't want a couple of days off just now. But I wish to save up juice for a long slow run on Tuesday.

Hope everybody's races/long runs/rest days went well.

Today's run over. 1st part of 4.88 miles done in 7.24m/m showing clubmate Cannon Hall to Bretton leg of boundary relay. Then 7 miles of my leg averaging a respectable 6.51m/m including some pretty overgrown sections and some severe nettles.

Today the bulls showed little interest until I was near the end of the field then trotted over. As I was already on the stile I tried the waving of arms and shouting. They looked at me quizzically then carried on advancing.

Looking forward to race reports later. A nice day for it.

Home and dissapointed!!

Back from the Beckenham 10k run, and to be honest it was hell, had rested pretty good this week and slept quite well last night so not sure what went wrong.

Was at the start line, which I never normally get to, and started off strong, a big hill right from the off, kinda tough, but pushed on, did not see the first km post but passed the second in 7 mins dead, thought this was good, then a stitch came along and lasted for like the next 4k, I could not shift it, the hill on the main road killed me, I was going flat out and had no more in the legs,decided to keep at a steady pace and give my all towards the end.

From 8k I had felt better so pushed on and went for it, looking at my watch I knew that a PB was not gonna happen in the last km, think I may have slowed at that point coz I was frustrated with the time, but took the last 250m well, came in about 39 min, forgot to stop my watch as I fumbled to grab a water.

So not a PB and not near the 37.20 I was aiming, but I was caught out from the hills, and if I look back at the first 2k, think I went off too fast and suffered.

Enjoyed the run and met up with some forumites which was nice.

Back to the speedwork I guess.

Hope all racers had a great time.

What: 14 'undulating' miles
Why: It's a really nice route and I'm trying to get back into the habit of regular long runs.
Last hard run: Thursday
Last rest day: Friday

Went over 40 miles this week for the first time since end of Feb/ beginning of March.
08/06/2003 at 13:47
solid run mate, don't be too disappointed, 39 min for 10K is nothing to sniff at and it sounds like a tough course too, so I'd say CONGRATS are in order, nice one.

BTW 7 min for 2K is 35:00 pace!!!!!!!!
08/06/2003 at 13:56
Thanks MM think all I need to do now is work on my speed training and find a nice flat 10k to see what I can actually achieve
I know that a 37 is possible from past runs.
08/06/2003 at 14:29
Well, I've just got back from a "4 mile fun run!!" - it was actually 4 and half and very hilly, and hot - so fun?!!

Anyway, pretty pleased, did my usual trick of starting too fast - 2 x 7:25 ish miles is FAR too fast for me - but finished I think around 36:50 which is 8:11 on average. With the hills involved and the heat I'm chuffed to bits with that! Worryingly tho' my son entered, no prep whatsoever, just thought Oh ok I'll have a go......and finished 37:53 - 7th in his category which was 9- 11 yrs and he is 9!! WOW!!

I'm not looking forward to the day he overtakes me but if he does any training whatsoever I can see it coming!!
