Cold and sunny here in Huddersfield.
What: 5 mile tempo.
Why: Club night.
Last hard: Tuesday.
Last rest: Yesterday.

Work has really interfered with my training for the past three days - three 'working lunches' in a row. So much for work\life balance.

Morning - sunny and chilly in London; better than yesterday's dismal weather!

What: 5 miles steady
Why: Still coughing madly so Tuesday's run was a quick 2.5 miles instead of the 5 I'd planned.
Last hard: Can't remember.
Last rest: yesterday.

Have been taking it easy while recovering from horrible cold/hacking cough - no sense in killing myself. Am also a bit concerned at the moment because of all these attacks on women by the 'trophy rapist'. A woman was attacked on Monday in Cockfosters, which is a very close to home and makes me a bit wary about running alone. The police haven't confirmed it was the same attacker - last I read they were interviewing her to see if there were any similarities with 'trophy' cases. She managed to get away, fortunately.

Look out for yourself, Minkin.

What: Probably a walk. Might jog a bit.
Why: Ankle DEFINITELY not up to running properly yet - tried last night.
Last rest day: Tuesday.
Last hard day: Two or three weeks ago.
Last embarrassing day: Yesterday. Went to gym, started weight class and quickly felt awful. Got out discreetly before hurling everything I'd swallowed since lunchtime (coffee, mostly). Very poor quality lifting for the rest of session. Aborted plans to step or swim. Glad I was on foot because I couldn't have driven home safely. Mild vertigo all evening. Almost settled now. We-e-e-ird!

Definitely out for Cheddar. B*gg*r.

What: Body Balance, you know the one, yoga type thing
Why: I teach it tonight. Ran a good nine mile session with the club last night. Not running tonight as I want to save myself for Autumn Challenge on Sunday, and I'm still meant to be in recovery mode from the Marathon
Last rest: Monday
Last hard: last night was hardish

Drew, are you doing some sort of winter strength thing - endurance in the summer, did you say that, or did someone else?
07/11/2002 at 14:21
Snicks, I think it was me who said it.

Until end of year I'm focusing on strength & endurance, rather than speed work. Doing more long runs & tempo runs + hill reps (which I've never done before) + 2 or 3 weight sessions per week. During the summer I was doing 2 track sessions per week with too few long runs. I'll review my progress after Christmas.

Why were you asking????
07/11/2002 at 15:12
AM - Swim 1500m
PM - 8 miles easyish
Why: Had a hard run yesterday
Last rest - 10 days ago
