For me it was going to be the latter, but it seems as if my new running shoes have sorted out my "injuries" caused by my old Responses.. so, I'll be out on the tarmac!

What: Out-back negative split run, second half run at or near race pace; probably about 4 miles total.
Why: Speedwork.

Last hard - Yesterday - only 5K but fast, and I suffered agonising stitch for the last 2Ks which added at least 3-4 minutes onto my time - grr!
Last rest: Day before yesterday.

For as much as i can, before i have to go back in
Tired now
31/10/2002 at 07:21
what - rest
why - hip still sore, so complete rest for a couple of days before sunday's 10 mile race
last hard day - monday
last rest day - sunday, so heh, i'm due one!!

begining to think my new Asics runners that i was so pleased with are the cause of the hip problems as i've never had any problems before. Arrrggghhhh!! Good money after bad.

What - '35 to 45 minutes light fartlek'
Why - Still following RW 10K programme
Last hard day - yesterday; '5 miles slow' became '6 miles hard' due to a fresh dumping of snow and strong northerly winds. Then I went X-Country skiing for an hour.
Last rest day - Friday

Slightly sore hamstring ... or is it my sciatic nerve? So lots of stretching before I run today.

The smoke from the municipal incinerator is going straight up this morning, and it's not raining. Not a bad start to the day, but I am full of aches and pains from Tuesday's hill reps.

What - gentle swim at lunchtime.
hard club run this evening.
Why - because that is my schedule.
Last hard day - Tuesday.
Last rest day - Wednesday.

What: as long a run as I can find time to do at an easy pace = 9min/mile 70%WHR (either 7.5 mile or 11 mile)
Why: feel I'm, lacking endurance base so its time to up the milage and stop treating all races as important - some shorter ones will become "tempo runs"
last hard day : Tues
last rest day : Mon
31/10/2002 at 10:13
What : spinning on turbo trainer (15miles)
Why : Because flu has stopped me from going outdoors.

Cant wait to put on them shoes and run and run and run and run and run!
31/10/2002 at 10:23
What: 5 miles steady or tempo run.

Morning all

What : Probably nothing
Why : I have done my back in, suffering major pain when I sit or lie down, taking Diclofenac Sodium (you don’t need prescriptions in Cyprus) until I get to see my osteopath tomorrow afternoon with any luck he will sort me out - as I’m hoping to kick off my new training program on Monday

Last Rest Day : The past week or so
Last Hard Day : I can’t remember

31/10/2002 at 10:35
what: anything up to 6 miles easy
why: well, everything was going fine until 2.30 am yesterday, when i was sick and kept being sick til 10am! i wasnt able to eat at all but have eaten breakfast today, so if i can have a normal size lunch i'll go for a run before it goes dark...
last hard day: sunday long run
last rest day: yesterday (completely unplanned, though!)
31/10/2002 at 10:51
What: Probably a light 3-4 miles.
Why: I'm recovering from a heavy cold and anything too hard will set my cough going.
Last hard day: Probably some time last week.
Last rest day: Yesterday. Had planned a light run but it was peeing down when I got home and although not cold, I didn't think getting soaked through would do my cold and cough much good. Will go tonight though even if it's raining as what with cold and slight calf injury, I've had more days off over the past two weeks than I'd like.
31/10/2002 at 10:52
what: 1km loop repeats
why: club night
last hard day: Tuesday
last rest day: last night. It should have been the gym but ended up round at parents inlaw for 'birthday tea' for father in law.
Ate too much and drank wine !!!!!!!!!!

Managed about 4km last night on the treadmill, first run since Sunday marathon, took it very easy but felt not too bad:

Today: Probably 25-30 minutes easy
Why: Marathon recovery.
Last Hard day: Sunday.
Last rest: Tuesday.

Sad to say but in spite of announcing my retirement I'm not sure I can without one last go - but this time with a period of serious training (I figure 60-70 miles per week). But I'll wait until Christmas before deciding.

I will make it up this week.

really pleased to hear that you might not give up on the marathon just yet. Perseverance is essential with this event ;-)
