16:10 Squeeze out for 40 minute run
17:00 Bath - beans on toast (Not at the same time)
18:00 Into car - drive into Frankfurt to see Bryan Adams
23:00 Into car - drive home
23:30 Into car - drive baby sitter home
00:05 Finally get into bed - Cream Crackered

I love driving

Today: Rest or cross train
Why: Feeling tired
Last hard day: Long long ago far far away

Club night 5/6 mile run, quite suprised at how quickly recovered from long run on Tuesday, knees ok this morning.

Martin never mind your training what was Bryan Adams like.
14/11/2002 at 09:18
Tim and Martin, well impressed with your dedication. Basically I would not get up that early, and would not run after driving all that way, so much respect due. Good luck in the interview Benz.

What : 7 miler fast (if I can shake off me hangover...urgh)
Why : Club night

Last Hard : Sunday
Last Rest : Yesterday

Thats it for me for this week folks as off to Somerset for the weekend tomorrow, and no running whatsoever. Its been a very easy week and so to paraphrase Alan Titchmarsh ...whatever the weather this weekend enjoy your running!
14/11/2002 at 09:24
Martin H, I'm impressed, but Bryan Adams! Oh well, each to their own. PB, well done, 520am - my alarm went off at six and off again at 605, and I woke up at 745.
What: Will try and squeeze one in - 40 mins of speed
Why: I like it - that's why
Last hard: last night was hardish good tempo run with club

Morning all,

What: Maximum Heart Rate test today, on a treadmill.

Why: Got the HRM yesterday (recovery run day) and couldn't run at 60% of what my max HR should be (using the 220-age equation) as it was just too slow. Therefore i've decided to take the more scientific approach to heart rates.

Mercury - Tempo runs should be hard, but controlled and should be run at about 85% of HRmax. I tend to do about four-five miles on mine, but having only just got the HRM, I've probably been doing them too hard.(the books say it should be around 10mile pace).
14/11/2002 at 09:53
Sorry, I said I was going to be more scientific, didn't I?
It should be (Working heart rate/85% + Resting heart rate = target heart rate).

I think that's right.

Last night's 10 miler turned into a 40 minute turbo trainer session followed immediately by 40 minutes running as I couldn't get out the house until quite late. Still quite a tough session.

Today: 45 minutes weights + 6 miles steady
Why: easy day
Last hard day: yesterday
Last rest day: Friday
14/11/2002 at 10:03
What: Compose resignation letter. Delete resignation letter. 5K treadmill. Try to beat 23:27 (that's roughly warp speed 3, mortals). Probably some weights/rowing/elliptical too. Then pub.
Why: Cos I hate my job, I'm still rationed on mileage (kilometrage?) and I like the pub.

Last hard: Sunday race
Last rest: Yesterday
