Couldn't sleep... come on move along now... nothing to see here... get on with it

What: 5K, give or take a few metres
Why: Finished work; went to the bar; had a laugh; then got my PT kit on and ran home -which, conveniently, is almost exactly 5K. It was technically "today" because I started my run at 00:03am.

Last rest day: Yesterday
Last hard day: Today - really went for it, and finished in 21:20 .. with a backpack full of stuff on! Considering the weight I was carrying, I was happy with that time.

Bloomin'eck! And I thought I was early. Cath, blessings for today - I'm not surprised you've got a touch of insomnia. Psi, fantastic time. Adds weight to the theory prevalent on the forum that the beat sessions are often fuelled by a few pints and a vindaloo.

What: Middle-sized run this afternoon, time permitting. About 7 miles.
Why: Must have been the day for unorthodox 5Ks yesterday. I ran my 5K circuit from home wearing trainers that were relegated to walking shoes a few weeks ago, slightly close-fitting jeans (with big leather belt) and woolly jumper, and completed it in 25:04, which is 3.5 minutes of my previous PB for that route. Then had a banana and honey sandwich (thanks for the tip, Laura) and did Bodypump followed by a 600m swim. So won't do long run today.
Last hard day: Yesterday.
Last rest day: Monday.

About 3 miles, gently
Best wishes again Cath xx

dusted off our exercise bike and got it out of the garage. Will see about a bit of cross training tonight
10/10/2002 at 08:01
Missed training thread (and all other threads yesterday) as spent the day in Munich. Decided to go for a short run in the morning - more of a hobble as left leg still rather stiff.

Today: Probably an easy 30 minutes
Why: still feeling a little stiff after Sunday.

Oh and printed off details for Frankfurt marathon! Probably won't decide whether to do it until end of next week.

Martin, having read "unorthodox training/not recommended", you have suddenly become much less of a nutter comparatively! Take a peek...hope the legs recover.

What: 40 mins row negative split between 1st and 2nd 20
Why: hard run yesterday, low impact on joints desired
Last hard day: yesterday

Shufflebuster - I did read it, make my thoughts seems like a bit a weekend jog!
10/10/2002 at 09:09
Happy Birthday Gillian! Surely that should be a decent enough excuse for not exercising today?!

What: not sure at the moment but it's a toss-up between speed-work or an easy 30 mins depending on how I feel at lunchtime.
Why: would like to do speedwork but had a really busy day yesterday and am tired.
Last rest day: yesterday
Last hard day: tuesday

Thanks RR - 'fraid now that I've started a new year I've decided to up my efforts towards exercising so today was a fresh start - also there's a big choccy cake and chinese carry out waiting for me after work !!!
10/10/2002 at 09:26
Happy Birthday Gillian, i agree with RR, take the day off.!

what - rest day, why - couldn't get out of bed - why - did an am and pm session yesterday, and also have Badminton match tonight.

if you've got any spare cake going...
10/10/2002 at 09:34
Happy birthday, Gillian. Are we allowed to know the number?

You CAN'T up your efforts towards exercising any more than you're already doing, since you seem to train twice a day quite often already. Don't burn yourself out, please. And you can cope with some cake and choccy without needing to burn it off in advance.

I'm 26 now (even went to the gym last night so I could put my age in the machine as 25 for the last time !! - how sad)
Anyway I still feel 18 so that's the main thing. My dad just phoned me to remind me that it's downhill to 30 now, but what confuses me is that it should be worse for him than me as if his eldest child is getting old then what does that say about him.....
Oh I got a rally day as a pressie - not for another 3 weeks but I can't wait - yippee !!!
10/10/2002 at 09:49
Happy Birthday Gillian.

Cath i hope you got some more sleep later.

what - club night - and as I've only been going a month who knows what that will be!
why - its Thursday
last rest - Tues
last hard day - Mon
10/10/2002 at 09:49
Happy birthday Gillian, what's this about it being downhill to 30? That makes the rest of us more or less ready for a free bus pass.

Vrap, you'd never know from your training you'd just done a 1/2m, what's going on?

What: gorgeous day, hope to sneak out for an hr of something at lunchtime, so long as I log off the forum NOW and get on with something useful.
Why: not doing any speed work 'til the weekend, my hamstrings were still sore yesterday and cold just about going.
Last rest: Tues
Last hard: Sun

Don't let your dad scare you. You're still a nipper. He's just trying to project his feeling-old-coz-my-daughter's-26 problem on to you. Don't let him do it! Could be worse - my mother has been describing me as "nearly 40" since my early thirties because she loves to hear people tell her that they can't believe she has a daughter of 40.

Life begins at 26! That's the age I was when my oldest child was conceived. I didn't start running till I was 37.
10/10/2002 at 09:54
Half-marathon? Pah! Nice long training run in the sunshine with plenty of people to talk to. Seriously, I have not had a twinge anywhere for weeks, including post-race. I have an awful feeling that my legs are storing up some big trouble to spring on me when I least want it because this is too good to be true.
10/10/2002 at 09:56
Thanks V-Rap !!
but I think children could be a long way off yet - no maternal instincts at all!!!
I only got my dog a year ago and he's enough of a handful.
One thing that does show I'm getting old is that my brother and I actually get on with each other !! We even go out to the pub together - and he comes round to visit me without my mum telling him to. When we were younger we fought all the time.
