Morning all and nice and sunny it is too here.

First a little report from last night's 10k. Had a very good run on a flat out and back course in fair conditions. Some said it was the worst headwind they'd experienced on this course, but I have to admit I didn't really think it was that bad.

First half reached in 21.25, a bit worried at this stage as I was way off getting my pb. Speeded up in the second half and had to work a little harder, especially for the final 2k, when I felt quite uncomfortable. Finished with a pb of 42.07 (9 secs) very pleased with that. I'm still learning to not be scared to commit from the gun! I'll have 41 mins by the end of the year! I have the strength to hang on, just need to get a bit more speed.

I think I finished 9th woman, which I was not disappointed with as 3 of them were under 40 mins. Plus I got first lady in my club, meaning 30 points! And I'm lying 4th in the County.

Today I'm off for a swim as it acts as a sort of massage and I've got another 12k multi terrain race on Sunday. It's all good fun.

Have a nice day!

Long run and good old natter with best friend so VERY steady pace so we can catch up on all gossip! 10-14 miles, decide as we go

Why - beautiful day, its planned in, and nice to do without a care in the world about how long it takes!!

Last rest - Monday

Have great day all

Whats with starting training threads at midnight??

Wht? God knows.
15/05/2003 at 09:03
Why even.

I'm looking forward to it.
15/05/2003 at 09:30
What - 6m inc 3 x 1m. Done this morning, lovely day but colder than it looks.
Why - Trying to get back to pre-FLM routine of 4/5 run days/week with 1 or 2 quality sessions
Last rest - Yesterday
Last Hard - Tuesday - Ran twice 8 and 5.

Questions for Big Tim/BR or any twice a day guys... does this work for average runners (46min 10k)? How many days to you train twice? Does it mean I can run 5 or six times but on only 3 days/week? Is there an ideal routine ie easy then hard etc? Is there a thread? Other benefits?
15/05/2003 at 09:42
Well done Hilly! Commonwealth Games beckons?

Last night I went out thinking I'll do 10 miles steady and generally feeling peeved at my state of fitness. Got outside the door, 'toot toot', a friend who's distressed that she can't shift weight and on her way to the gym pulled up. I told her to get out of the car and run with me. We ran around 6 to 7 miles, very slow - very, very slow. But it was really good for me! I couldn't resist a few bursts here and there, but overall I'd forgotten that it's nice to run and talk things over, encourage each other and have someone else with me when I stick two fingers up at the teenage boys packed into Ford Fiestas!
The cold is finally shifting. Body's are great aren't they - if your mind won't tell you to slow down and take stock. Your body will!
Today: Either a hard hill sesh, or an easy six miler with a few hill bursts. Depends what my body thinks
For the next four weeks I'm going to follow the last bit of RW's 10 week 1/2 mara schedule in prep for the Hillingdon Half...
But for now... enough procrastination, accounts need doing!

You're in early with your accounts Snicks, surely the deadline is months away. Glad you had a good run, know what you mean, our minds are so stubborn it's hard to listen to our bodies sometimes isn't it. After Connemara, isn't it good you've trained less and recovered though?

Hilly, congrats on your PB, you deserve every second of it after that killer session you posted last week. You said you hadn't had good runs at this race before so it must be doubly pleasing to do well.

What: 4-5 miler.
Why: beautiful day so want to do something, but really should take it easy before Sat. Can I start eating now?
Last hard: Tues
Last rest: week ago.

I've made my mind up to have a crack at the Bob Graham round by the time I'm 40, a dad at school is doing it as I type, 74 miles, masses of ascent running a huge circle of peaks in the Lakes in 24 hrs. It's self-organised, you need lots of support and at the end, if you make it under the 24 hrs, you can put your name in the hall of fame. Most people fail their first attempts!

Just checked: 'masses of ascent' = 28500 ft!
