A very temperate minus 9.0 degrees this morning and its only a brave man who ventures outside in such,

Today: Treadmill session, probably a relatively easy 30 minutes.
Why: Maintenance training, knee playing up again over the last two days
Last rest day: 30 Dec (Didn't manage to rest yesterday, couldn't resist a session on the rower).
Last Hard day: N/A

Maybe its the fact that I've only returned to work this week after three weeks vacation or maybe its the cold weather but I have been feeling exceptionally weary this week.

Morning all!

Eight or nine degrees here and really, really windy. no snow, no ice.

What: nowt. Might go to the climbing wall tonight
Why: Decided i was better yesterday, so swam 1000 metres and did a brisk 5 miler. Wasn't very well last night, and feel s*** today. Realise tht I'm really good at giving the 'don't run if you're recovering from illness' advice but can't put it into action myself!!

Happy training, everyone
09/01/2003 at 11:32
What: Club night

Can anyone give any advice on Morton's Neuroma, I have been getting pain in my 3rd and 4th toes after around an 1hrs running, can't see or feel anything, have read the article in RW.
09/01/2003 at 11:43
Good luck with your vo2max test Barkles.

Lizzy - runners are rubbish at taking their own sensible advice! take care.

What: 1hr50 xcountry.
Why: Time on my feet and managed to engineer 2 hr slot this am. Have been doing more miles on the road and feeling it, so decided to do this week's long run off road. Hard to get the balance as the tempo runs, marathon pace runs and at least half the long runs probably need to be on the road .
Last hard: Mon. But my legs are farily slow and stiff at the moment, probably running on icy conditions doesn't help as you tense your muscles more (sulkily admits for the 2nd day running that treadmills may have some benefit...
Last rest: Tues
Have a good day everybody and take care with injuries WW, Martin and others.
09/01/2003 at 11:49
Hello chums.

What: Oh, maybe a full-throttle 5K on the treadmill, plus some gentler trots and some other gymmy things. Or I might just do a 10K road run.
Why: None of your business!
Hard: Saturday (Tuesday?)
Rest: Yesterday.

09/01/2003 at 12:16

Tulips get someone to stand in front of you and throw things at you...

I know what you mean Lizzie after all a days missed training is a day you fall behind. :) it's not at all really but it's the way I feel sometimes.

I hate being sick and missing training especially after getting in to a 6 days a week habit. But that extra day off can do wonders, I've had a couple of great results immediatly after an illness. I'd put this down to the time recoving was the same as rest days? Any other ideas on this?
09/01/2003 at 12:56
Hi Rob - I haven't trained properly for over a week now - I was running 6 days/40-50 a week, 2 speedwork sessions every week ... now even the thought of running for an hour seems really hard. BUT I had six months off last winter and since coming back I've been fitter and more injury free than I was before the accident. So I'm fairly relaxed about this time off - at least I'm losing that stone I said I needed to lose!

Anyway, it's a retail theray day for me today - buying a snowboard over the internet - anyone know any good sites ...?
09/01/2003 at 12:57
A very good morning to all!

Well like most of the UK snow has fallen and now turning to slush and ice, so went to the treadmill as I dont really want to get any injury b4 my marathon.

What: 10km =
4k @ 14kph in 17.11
4k @ 15kph 1n 16.00
1k @ 17kph in 3.32
1k @ 12kph in 4.57 (cool down) = 41.43

Is it me or do you find that gyms are just so damn hot, your sweating b4 you've even started.

Then some resistance work =
Dumbell crurls 3 sets
Kickbacks 3 sets
Shoulder Raise 3 sets
Shoulder Press 3 sets
Lat pull down 3 sets
Seated row 3 sets
Leg Extention 3 sets
Leg Curl 3 sets
Ab crunches 3 sets
Back extention 3 sets

Now off to bed as in work tonight.

09/01/2003 at 12:57
Thanks LauraL... this taking running seriously stuff is certainly tiring work.!
09/01/2003 at 13:11
afternoon all -

I don't know how you folks manage it running outside in this stuff - I can barely manage to walk a mile without shattering a hip or pulling a muscle. anybody know how much Zimmer frames cost? I quite fancy one of those.

LizzyB - sorry to hear the come-back is taking it's time, but I'm sure as you say you'll be stronger afterwards.

Laura - I'm not sure you need to be running as many miles on the road as you think. if you can avoid it, it's got to be a good thing. they don't train much on roads in Kenya and they seem to do OK.

what: 10 miles marathon pace tempo run, 7M @ 6:15, 3M @ 6:11

why: the Horwill method, which seems like it's finally starting to pay off

last rest: goodness knows

last hard day: Tuesday
