OK, due to the sudden absence of my front window, here's what I'll be doing later today:

What: improvised DIY

Last rest: Friday

Poor Dave! Are you all ok?
27/10/2002 at 10:59
Thanks, all is OK now. Some sort of a window in place, wind is easing a bit, may even go out for a run.....

"She woke up and looked out of the window. Another glorious autumn day, sunny and crips. Perfect for the 10 mile run she had planned for this morning. Downstairs she could hear her children, lovingly interacting over which stimulating and educational Sun am TV programme to watch next. She jumped out of bed, glad she had relaxed with a cup of chamomile tea the night before instead of fuzzying her head with too much red wine.
She laced up her shoes, ready to go, but first her husband as usual wanted all the details of her heart rate training zones and choice of route. 'Off you go then' he smiled, 'I'll have breakfast ready when you get back.'
Once out she felt fantastic and ran like the wind, steady but fast. After 10 miles of effortless 1/2 marathon pace she decided to add another 3 mile loop and got back refreshed, another PB on her watch ready to be entered into her training log."

Did 8 miles in the rain, thought 'sod this', cut the run short and went home.

My first ever post to the forums though I've been reading them for a while.

Good luck to the Long Run Mob today. I did a very wet,cold and windy 10K earlier today and that was enough. Nearly 6 minutes slower than my best time for the same route would give you an idea of the horrible early morning conditions in Aberdeen.

I hope the conditions are better for the rest of you.

Nice one Laura. In view of my race being abandoned, am hoping to see the wind drop by late afternoon, in which case I'll try that 9 miler I had problems with just over a week ago....
27/10/2002 at 13:41
Laura your first run sounds great!unfortunatly reallity soon kicks in.

What: 16 Miles, I did 6M on my own & was joined by a friend for the last 10M. The wind is just unbeliveable. Lots of leaves & branches all over the roads, at one point we had to climb over a tree that was blocking the road. Another time we both agreed it felt like our legs were going in circles, we were like two old men with walking sticks at the end because we were bent so far forward into the wind.
I'm now back in doors wondering about the roof [a few tiles have lifted but no real damaged yet] The fence in the back garden won't be there for much longer [looks like I will be building a new wall sooner than I thought!]
Surprisingly I feel quite lively,
Why: my first 80 mile week for a long time.
Last Rest: 9 days ago.

Dave hope everything is back to normal soon.

And to anybody racing today WELL DONE!
27/10/2002 at 17:15
Yes, things are as normal as they ever are now. Eventually I settled for a visit to the Gym - fast (for me!)4K on the treadmill, some other CV stuff and a few weights. Hope the wind settles enough to make running in the dark OK for Mon/Tue...
27/10/2002 at 17:41
Goodness me Laura you must have been reading Mills & Boon with the chamomile tea to come up with that prose.

or perhaps it was hammer house of horror given the reality

what 1/2M race: see elsewhere
why: It avoided repairing fence but unfortunately in the meantime our TV aerielas have gone down (or the transmitters *****ed)

last hard day : today
last rest : sat

27/10/2002 at 17:49
I'm really pleased with myself. Did the Totton 10k this afternoon and despite it blowing a hooley was only 20 secs outside my PB! Maybe there's something to this speedwork lark after all..
Last rest: Fri
Last hard: today
27/10/2002 at 17:58
11 km on treadmill
better than nothing I suppose
27/10/2002 at 18:08
ah benz

at least on a tredmill you have a nice holder for the G&T and can slow down when you want a drink so you don't spill (such a waste).

bet the miserly gym staff won't do you a top up!
27/10/2002 at 18:48
Didnt think of that!!
Always have a nice glass of eine after, dut I COULD have a tinnie of gin
Thanks mate!!:)
(our gym staff ignore us)
27/10/2002 at 18:49
Did the 9 miler as promised. Took 69 mins!! - but conditions weren't helpful and it was my first run of this length for >10 years.
Last mile must have taken at least 10 mins - was on the prom and almost directly into the wind.
Knees are complaining a bit now alas...
27/10/2002 at 18:52
It wasnt raining here so should have gone outside
not the wind thatputs me off, but the poeple:(
27/10/2002 at 19:27
Okay, change of plan for me:

What: Nothing at all
Why: Knee and calf twinges. I didn't want to gamble it, specially considering the extra stress they'd have got from running into the wind.

Last hard day: Today, because I really wanted to run!! *sulk*
Last rest day: Today, I suppose.
27/10/2002 at 20:37
what:20 mile run(meant to be only 15 but my fellow runners are training for luton)
why:10 mile race next weekend
last hard:thurs hill reps
last easy:sat-nowt

Never read anything but sfh legs, no wonder I can't cope with all those long complicated sentences in the HR thread.

Well done on your long run Mike, sorry your race was cancelled. Just watched the news and have sympathy with race organisers and runners across the Uk - especially would-be Snowdonia marathoners.
