Does anyone else take themselves off to the gym or go out for a run when they're angry, someone really p!!!ed me off last night (so called friends) went to the gym and did 10 min warm up, intervals 2 mins at 11.2kph, 2 mins walk x 5, 10 min walk. Then did weights for half an hour, felt better after that.

Morning all

Did not get for my swim last night – I was ill with dizzy spells all day and could not shake it off – but feeling a bit better today

What : 6-miler with sprints (hopefully)
Why : Club night unstructured speed session (if I get my way)

Last Rest Day : Yesterday
Last Hard Day : Tuesday

Only 1 week to Cyprus and maybe a couple of runs in the sun :o)

Yes, Wicked, and that is one of the reasons I am sooo glad I can run. Haven't yet found the fit of temper I can't run away from, but sometimes I have to go on rather long runs.

Today: No indulgence in temper. 3M easy, taper for half on Sunday. Somewhat spoilt by rampant dyspepsia, brought on by a return to lecturing and work (his, not mine) generated domestic crises. It will be appropriate if I have to run Sunday with a stinking bellyache.

So long for now. No training posts til after the half.

Run well everybody!

Morning all. Lovely bright sunny day in Brum. Bit chilly, but I can live (and run) with that.

What: Hope to do 7-8 mile run this afternoon and Bodypump class followed by a short swim later.
Why: Schedules up the spout already this week, so doing what I like. Think I'll take it day by day now until Cheddar then do proper schedules again for Helsby.
Last hard day: Sunday.
Last rest day: Monday.

Like you, WW, I find exercise brilliant for getting stress and irritation out of my system. Did my fastest-ever 5K last week after my daughter had wound me up - I didn't even bother to change into running gear before going out the door, just went out and pelted round the block.
17/10/2002 at 09:20
Morning all

What: Fartlek
Why: More speed work

Last Hard: Tuesday
Last rest: Monday

Normally do my Thursday run on the treadmill - can you do fartlek on a treadmill?

Marj - good luck for the half.

brilliant day today - here in the Marches

what - club day - so kids at 6:15 and adults at 7. I'm hoping that once I'm strong enough I will be able to start doing the adult swimming lessons that start at 8 for an hour as well.

why - joinning the club was the best thing I've done this time round and I'm hoping it will keep me going on.

last hard day - Tuesday speed session
last rest - Wednesday

Feeling a bit stiff from yesterday but here goes

What : I don't know as I'm going to a club tonight and have no idea what happens on a club night - can anyone tell me?

What 7 mile run easy pace with half mile steep hills run at pace.

Last Rest - Sat
Last hard - yesterday

What: Don't know - possibly curling up on the couch with a bottle of painkillers.

Why: Off to dentist in 45mins to get the dratted tooth pulled out at last.
17/10/2002 at 11:31
Hope it's not as bad as you think it's going to be, Nessie!
17/10/2002 at 12:04
What: maybe nothing; else something short

Why: may not have the time. Need to get the weekly shopping in after work; also at 2000 cricket committee meeting. May be a blessing in disguise - feeling very short of zzzz's at the moment & still threatened by a cold which (hopefully) never quite materialises.

last hard day: Sun
last rest day: Sat
17/10/2002 at 13:05
Lovely day in Aberdeen, apart from the cold and rain that is.
what: 5 mile threshold run
why: I want to
last hard day: Tuesday
last day off: Saturday

10 days to go to the marathon in Dublin so in taper mode.

Back from the dentist, with tooth still intact. My mouth wouldn't freeze enough to let him take it out, so its off to the hospital in the next few weeks for extraction under a general. I can have some lunch now :-)
17/10/2002 at 16:55
still a bit eel - bracing myself as the future in-laws are coming to stay!
17/10/2002 at 19:29
What: a very tired slow 6 miles
Why: I don't really know why I was so tired, it could be Sunday took more out of me than I thought. I intended an easy week but today's run was at joke pace. No more running now until race on Saturday. As long as I feel able! It has been a very busy day at work, maybe it's that.
Last hard: Sunday
Last rest: yesterday.
