What: resolved to get round my 4m ring route even if I walked the lot. Ooh dear. Remember that running vs jogging thread? Well, jogging would be gross flattery of the gait I achieved for the first two miles. But as with the way of this thing, in the third, things improved, and I ran from lamppost to lamppost (followed by a lampposts' worth of "jog")at something approximating my old pace. Still mostly numb from ribcage southwards when I run, and I think not from cold. When I tried to stop for a traffic light however both knees setoff in their sewing machine immitation, so I decided it was time to walk.

Still, something new every day.

How I would dearly love advice. Isn't there anybody out there, somewhere, who has retrained seized up muscles? Somebody, whose cousin's uncle's sister has done the same?

Shan't be posting for a bit, as I'm off on a grand tour of relatives. Trainers are coming with me, of course!
19/12/2002 at 09:54
What: a 40 to 50 min tempo run. I will fit it in. I will! And teaching Body Balance
Why: I want to

Last bit of work to finish off then it's down tools and get ready for Christmas. Got a really good Christmassy feeling today!! Ding dong...merrily... on high!!!
19/12/2002 at 10:15
What: 40 minutes steady pace
Why: easy day after yesterday's hard
Last hard session: yesterday
Last rest: Tuesday

Snicks, if you're finishing for Christmas today then you should be able to get in lots of training sessions over the next few weeks as you won't have to worry about work!

morning all

thaw set in here overnight I'm relieved to say.

what: probably nothing. Will see how my legs feel, but I do want to be reasonably fresh for an attempted 10 mile tempo run tomorrow. Stress on "attempted".
why: see above

last hard day: Tue
last long day: Sun
last rest day: Mon
19/12/2002 at 11:08
Felicitations, all.

What: Taking myself to the point of death with intervals on the treadmill. Finish only when I get a "move towards the light" experience.
Why: Why not? And I missed most of my club sesh on Tue. And I feel the need - the need for speed.
Rest: Yesterday
Hard: Saturday

Happy running/recuperating.

Hello everybody, the clock's ticking away and in only 1.5 hrs our visitors arrive for 2 WEEKS; they'll be sleeping in the very room I'm sitting in right now which is covered with files, cds, cards, paper and miscellaneous rubbish.

Just as frantic therefore as the rest of you, worst of all out on work do tomorrow and haven't a thing to wear, it's not quite a fleece & running tights occasion - any ideas?? No chance of wedging my wide black-toe-nailed runner's feet into pair of 4 inch mules at any rate.

What: 6 miles steady
Why: feeling a bit more human today and I LOVE running in frosty winter sunshine, but not a lot of time (who does??) today.
Last hard: Tues
Last rest: yesterday.
Thinking of doing Langdale xmas pud 10K on Sunday.

Happy end of week everyone! Good luck to all setting off on trips.

Let me start this post by saying, D@MN Heel Tabs!!!

What: 1 Mile Warm up, 3 x 1 Mile in 5:40
(Intended to do 1 Mile WU, 6xMile, 1 mile CD)
Why: Heel tab dug into back of achilles. By the end if the 3rd rep, I couldnt wlak, let alone run!, so 2nd session cut short in 2 days.
Last Hard: I cant remember
Last Rest: Tuesday

The running gods are against me this week. Just got over my 24hr stomach bug thing, and then this happens! Su-bl00dy-perb!
19/12/2002 at 13:18
What : 10 miles in the crisp air of Brighton seafront at half-mara pace.
Why : Because watching the sun rise in the winter is great...
Last Hard Day : Tuesday
Last Rest Day : Wedensday
19/12/2002 at 13:20
Running gods are against me too, KK! Had a weird stomach poisoning thing yesterday: like incredibly bad indigestion right at the very top of my stomach. Convinced it was caused by licking over 200 envelopes on Tuesday. Lasted all Tuesday night and all day yesterday, but has finally gone!

So: 4.1 miles tonight OR ELSE!
Why: Because I must, must, MUST run today! Haven't been since Monday and I can feel my fitness ebbing away ...
Last hard: Monday.
Last rest: Not long ago enough!

SO hard to fit it all in at this time of year!

Minkin: Yeah, I read about it mate, I would say deepest sympathy, but y'know what they say, 'empathy is better than sympathy', right?

Thinking about it, I now reckon my stomach started playing funny so that I could understand my fellow runners with dicky tummies better, therefore, there IS a positive I can draw from the whole experience! No, really... ;)
PS. Hope your run goes better than mine did Minkin
P.P.S Just noticed, the distance you intend to do is exactly that which I managed before 'the dreaded heeltab' struck! Spooky!

Todays diary of the non-running runner.
Drew - regarding your yesterdays comment on weight training to strengthen ligaments. I'm not fully into weight training at the moment but that is definitely on the agenda for the January. At the moment I want to try and carry some fitness into the new year so am focusing on altenative aerobic exercise - hence cycling and rowing - but I certainly think weight training is a good idea.

Todays session (already done) was an hours sqaush - probably not ideal for knee recuperation (too much slamming feet) but good fun nonetheless and a chance for me to spend more time with MrsH (herself an excellent racquet sports player). So a good workout and brownie points as well - bonus!!

Some of you may remeber the thread on L'etape du tour, well I foolishly (subconciously?) booked my summer holiday on the weekend it was due to take place - however, they've now changed the date to 16th July which now gives me no excuse. This years event at over 200k is a real challenge but something to keep my mind off running for the next couple of months!

What - LSD day 2.5 hours
Why - gradually build up of mileage
last rest - yesterday
last hard - Tuesday

The only good thing about this run is the fact that I've already done it. Bad thing is that I am now sat at work and I'm knackered. Still, it beats being knackered in your own time.
19/12/2002 at 14:20
Managed an hour's run in beautiful weather, including hills, 10 x 36 secs, 1 min recoveries - a nice flapjack and a coffee on my return. And now I must get back to work.
19/12/2002 at 14:49
Yup, great weather. Sneaked off for an hour at lunch for a very pleasant outing in the cool sunshine - chance to get the shades out !

What:- steady 8 miles
Why:- still hoping for a FLM slot
Last rest :- yesterday
Last hard :- Sunday
19/12/2002 at 14:50
What: 5KM on treadmill
Why: Schedule Says so
Last Rest: Monday
Last Hard: Race on Sunday
