What: Speed session in Regents Park, 3 x 1min, 5 min, 3 x 1min, 5 min.
why: no reason for the breakdown, couldn't think what else to do
Last hard: today, i was tired
Last easy: yesterday, I was a slob

Great fun running past camels, wolfs and eagles! Felt a bit sorry for them though. They do look bored! Lots of runners out. Wonder what it will be like in January
Back to work - check over shoulder....

Glad to see even KK has rest days occasionally.

Mike, hope you enjoy your 'quality session with the Wirral girls'. :)

What: 3.5 hrs xcountry with a fair bit of ascent in gorgeous winter sunshine. Nice gentle pace approx 62% whr.
Why: Power off all morning so good excuse not to do any work and go out running instead. And friend reminded me we're supposed to be doing 23mile xcountry event the weekend after Helsby, so tested part of the route today. Shattered now, please can this count as my long run this week?
Last rest: yesterday
Last hard: Sat.

Wow! Well done Laura - you can definitely count that as this week's long run.

I'm running 2.5m handicap with Club tonight. Don't feel like doing it actually. Feel like having one of those runs where you just head out the door, no time or route planned and just run.

Oh well, another day perhaps. At least I'm getting a run tonight.

Go there Laura, well done for today.

What: 16km ( 10 miles )1hr 12mins.
Why: Done 18 miles on sunday, needed a complete recovery yesterday after also working 12 hrs on sunday night, pretty wrecked come monday morning, so thought id do a longish steady run today.

Last Hard: Sunday
Last Rest: Monday

Keep it up folks!!

What: Nothing, rest day.

Why: Raced XC on Sunday followed by a 5KM RR tomorrow and a moderately paced 4M off road run in between.

Last Hard: XC race on Sunday.

Yeah, I was running like KK before I was injured - the temptation is there to just ramp straight back up to that level of training again, but I know I'll just overtrain and come a cropper so it's all about the slow buildup :)

Not all the usual girls turned up - one new bloke did - so it was 3 of each; for once the blokes weren't outnumbered.
2/3rd mile "warm up" (misnomer), then tempo run in sub-zero temperatures - covered about 8.5-9K in just under 34 mins. Got back to the car after 1 mile+ warm down & found ice on the windows. The puddles on the pavement were starting to freeze over as well.
Struggled to keep up with the new bloke & the fastest woman & gradually faded to about 50m+ adrift. Checking back on the splits later, found we'd gone out at sub 6 minute mile pace, so perhaps not surprising. We all slowed quite a lot over the last mile or so.
Didn't enjoy it at the time, but glad I managed the session now.

Ran 12 miles yesterday with the club.
