Taxi for sorry, Snicks.

I'm off for a twenty around Kinsgton - should be twenty two but tricky to do on the loop we're doing.

I've had this chesty cough hanging around all week, not sure I should run really. I had an easy Sunday to break things up a bit last week, bad timing really - if it were this Sunday that would be fine, but I can't miss two on the trot.

Good going all.

Well for me a dissapointing run, planned 18 miles at easy pace, but have a niggle in right knee so made 12 miles only, but now I listen to my body where as in the past I try and run it off, and them im off longer.

What: 12miles

Why: Sunday are long runs ( but not today )

Last Rest: Friday

Last Hard: Thursday

Waiting to read race reports later

Lot's of hard training being done this weekend it's good to see.

What: Long run 20M
Why: End of three weeks of hard training.
Last hard: Yesterday.
Last rest: Fri.

The National XC at Parliment Hill yesterday was very very tough!
I'm in shape to run about 56-57min for 10M, yet it took me 51:55min to race 12K [7.5M]. Which goes to show how hard the course was. The thick mud & all those hills. Not forgetting the ditch & so many runners probably around 2000 in the senior men's race!!!!
On the positive side I got to line up next to one of my hero's [Rob Denmark]I beat someone I've not beaten before but lost out in the sprint to another I would have loved to have beaten [I've not beaten him before either].
I think/hope I made the top 360 but will find out soon.
That's the end of the xc season for me & definitely my best ever.
Next year's National is Roundhay Park in Leeds with "hill 6" I can't wait!!!!!!!!
I'm off to South Africa next weekend to relax & train hard some more.

hi everyone -

Snicks - the celebrations sound every bit as demanding as the long run!

MM - good to have you back. well done on the big one.

Mr C. - bad luck, hope you recover quickly.

what: 24 miles in 2:46:something, dodging droves of RW team-in-training folks round Richmond Park.
why: was meant to be 20 but felt like adding the extra. no doubt I'll regret it tomorrow.
last rest: Thursday
last hard days: yesterday (fartlek) and Friday (tempo intervals) - not a good idea.

23/02/2003 at 12:38
Speedy-sorry you had a disappointing run, but well done for listening to your body. As you say far better to cut short a run than to make things worse. Best wishes!

Big Time-excellent performance yesterday you sound as if you thoroughly enjoyed that race, as tough as it was! Also, well done on your long run today. I don't know how you guys manage the kind of training you do!-Enjoy S Africa!

Achilles-more fantastic running and on top of those other sessions. Hope you plan to rest tomorrow:)
23/02/2003 at 12:40
Thanks hilly
23/02/2003 at 12:56
22 miles around Kingston in 3:01, which annoys me - I did 22 round a much hilleier route two weeks ago five minutes faster :(

Never mind, had this chesty cold this week so what the hell.

Great runs guys - keep them coming!!
23/02/2003 at 13:20
Speedie, Mr Creosote, I hope you're both better soon.

Sounds like lots of fantastic efforts today. Achilles, MM, Iain, Snicks, Big Tim, you are all just amazing.

Well, I've been out too...
What: Long slow run, on the upside of 16 miles, in just over 3 hours.
Why: Got a marathon in 7 weeks.
Last hard day: Today.
Last rest day: Friday.
I made the mistake of setting off too quickly (as in, 5.5 miles of 10-minute miling) and my legs seized up a bit when I made a scheduled stop to buy a bottle of water. The last 2.5 miles, straight into the wind, were laborious and I felt a bit nauseated at the end so there ae clearly fuelling issues to be sorted out.
23/02/2003 at 14:13
Impressive as usual, people. And by contrast....

Today I shall be mostly having a rest.
