What: gentle jog on a 7 mile loop to admire the flooded valley.
Last session - hard session on Christmas Eve to do heart rate max tests for a couple of club mates.
Next session - 7 miler tomorrow morning to check progress on floods.

I confess - i didn't do my planned run on Xmas Day. Cuddling under the duvet after a breakfast in bed won the day.

26/12/2002 at 19:03
What: am 5M easy run at 6am.

Then organised a 5 mile road race. All went quite well & I think [hope] everybody enjoyed themselves.
I include an under 21 prize in this race as well as the usual one's, an idea of somebody's from this forum. Thank you to them for the idea. Both prizes went to clubmates.
I did make one mistake, so please don't tell me off. I forgot the eerrmm.... water table for the finish. [I'm sorry this will not happen again].
Oh & I got to meet my first forumite in the flesh, [Ashley] which was nice as it makes this all seam a bit more real somehow.

pm: 8M steady to unwind. Should have been a session but decided to swap it around with tomorrow's training.

cornish ironman: can you e-mail me and tell me what a turbo session is? or post it on the forum.

what: nothing.
why: caught in the trap of trying to please everybody at once.

news flash!!!: i have two weeks until the X-Country northern ireland championships......ooooooooh s**t i have got sooooooo much training to do this week.

merry boxing day people.

Hi, glad to see there are no slackers on here...

What: 5 miles steady am.
Why: guilt induced session squeezed in before family walk, have slipped so easily into daytime drinking...
Last hard: Sat.
Last rest: Mon

Long run tomorrow or Sat.
27/12/2002 at 00:57
what: a few strides, then 2 miles in 12:28, then last 2/3rd mile in 5 mins.

why: Having got up 10.00, spent much of a.m. printing & sellotapiing together 1:25000 Multimap extracts covering the Helsby course (sad or what?), poked around MFI, B&Q & Homebase, then spent the rest of the afternoon comatose in front of the football scores, felt I had to get out & wake my limbs up. But didn't want to take anything out of myself with hard 10-miler planned tomorrow (today now - yikes!).

last hard day: Xmas Eve
last easy day: Xmas day
last long day: Sun
last rest day: Mon

night all

Nearly always enjoy a great run on Boxing Day [and on New Years Day]. This year met clubmates at 8am [how could I think they might wimp out]. Did a steady 11 miler, although I felt good and would have done another 3/4 miles. Had dreamt about such a run and the fresh air involved when overfull and bored with TV the previous day.
