Last rest: Today.

Taking it easy today - still not 100% ( see yesterdays whinge).

Hopefully going out for a run tomorrow.
Fresh motivation arrived with the new issue of RW (and training schedules) and LPG running tours mag (Greenland/Tromso and Chicago all making an impresson).

Dustin, Benz hope you feel well again soon.
PSI, hope your foot isn't too bad. Good to buy shoes in the Jan sales.

What:5 mile recovery run
Why: no circuits today so decided a easy run would do nicely. Weather was great too, making even more inviting.
Last hard: yesterday
Last rest: Sat

Did it, took just under 2 hrs at 70% whr to get home. Started running out of steam after an hour but felt better after I'd forced myself to eat the very squashed banana at the bottom of my bum bag.
Will now measure the route, it'd better be at least 13 miles!

Get better soon Hippo.

What: Nothing rest day
Why: Programme says so
Last hard day: Yesterday with long run of ca 14 miles with last six at marathon pace
Last rest day before today: last Tuesday

30/12/2002 at 20:03
What: mile intervals. 4 x 1 mile off 400m recovery. Each mile faster than the last. Starting at 7 minute miling, the last at 6 minute mile pace. then another 400m @ 6 min pace, then recovery.

Why: County XC champs on Sunday on a boring almost flat course so I wanted to practise moving my legs faster than normal.

No more hard sessions this week.

Next rest: probably Saturday
30/12/2002 at 20:05
I cheated and did it on the treadmill because my (only) flat off road route is waterlogged and I didn't fancy it on our narrow (and undulating) lanes.
30/12/2002 at 20:56
What: 6 miles fast (for me) with the Club
Why: it's Monday

Last hard: y/day
Last rest: Thursday

30/12/2002 at 21:21
I did it - my hill reps. Nine reps, 15 mins, HR between 80 and 85 per cent at the top of the hills - needs to be 90 per cent I think! ah, well, can't do everything. It was raining all day, so I'm pleased with myself. Total running time 55 mins. Well done Laura, I'm sure you did more than 13 miles. And well done Hilly, Johnny and all those on the other page..
30/12/2002 at 21:21
what: nothing
why: would have scheduled a day off anyway - but legs invariably feel quite dead the day after my long run now.

last hard(ish) day: Fri
last long day: Sun
last rest day: Sat

Bugs all around - elder son's voice starting to go; mother (who I saw yesterday, when she was probably just starting with it) even worse. Hope the echinacea keeps them all at bay......

Johny, I cheated too! Simply because the track is shut during the Christmas period.

Don't know about you but I find the treadmill harder for this session than the track.

What: 10k alternating pace run on treadmill
Why: schedule
Last hard day: today
Rest: yesterday

30/12/2002 at 21:44
What: 1.5 mile x-country.
Why: I was knackered after a nine and a half hour early shift.
Last rest: Yesterday after work.
Next run: Cleethorpes New Years Day 10k.
