best of luck for today, Big Tim - I'm sure you're going to do great things as usual.

Snicks - enjoy your 22 miler (!). you really are taking things seriously!
22/02/2003 at 08:52
Big T - good luck at the nationals
Snicks - enjoy the long run today
Mike S & Drew good to see you back with it.

What : probably 4 miles easy with 4-5 * 100m strides
Why : Bramley 20 tomorrow

Race Prediction (last year 2:43)
Pleased : 2.27-2.30
Disappointed : 2.30-2.35
Very miffed : sub 2.35
Elated : 2.24-2.27
Cigars : sub 2.24

Planning to run at target marathon pace (aiming for 3h15 so around 2.28 for the 20m)
Only thing worrying me is its been nearly three weeks since my last long run (18.7m), everything since has been <13miles....
Still I feel fairly good and I think there are a handful of forumites aiming for a similar time.....

Good luck everyone else with their endeavours/races this weekend

Morning all and run well all those racing!

Me I'm off for a 22 mile long run too. A beautiful route, except it has one hill a mile long up to Portland and then a long drag from sea level to how many thousand feet I don't know. But can't beat the views out to sea-I'm sure I can see France:)

I'll be thinking of you doing yours Snicks when I'm out there. Enjoy!!

Why:long run of the week. Should have been tomorrow, but the weather today is great and too good to miss, so swapped training around.

Last rest:just a swim last night.

Last hard:Thursday.
22/02/2003 at 09:06
Lots of work planned today, I see. Most impressed!

What: Long one (OK, long for me). 10 miles easy pace, might extend if I fancy it.
Why: Saturday, and not racing tomorrow.
Hard: Tuesday.
Rest: Yesterday.

Good luck to those who can use it.
22/02/2003 at 09:10
Morning all.

What: 18 miles LSD
Why: training schedule
Last hard: Wed
Last rest: Fri

Did 19.5 miles in 3 hours 30 mins in the end but it was really hard after the long flight yesterday and because Johannesburg is quite high at 5500 feet.
22/02/2003 at 09:30
Good luck Big Tim.
I'm sure you'll fly tomorrow Dustin, escaped the sickness bug did you? I've moved into the spare room, and have invisible no-go zone around my person to minimise the chances of getting other half's horrible flu bug!! In fact if things carry on, I may need somewhere to crash for a while, say until the 14th April, any offers?

Have fun today Snicks and Hilly, weather's still fantastic here too, most setttled period since about September I'd say.

So, come out of the bunker then Achilles?

Glad you're better Mike.

What: 7 miles easy.
Why: longish marathon pace run planned for tomorrow. Wish I was racing as running's feeling really good this week.
Last hard: yesterday's intervals.
Last rest: Mon
22/02/2003 at 10:52
goodness, the threads are while quiet this morning

What: 15miler long run
Why: Because I'm insane
Last Hard: Wed Speedwork
Last Easy: Rest Day yesterday

22/02/2003 at 11:01
What: nothing
Why: because I'm really excited I'm running 15 miles tomorrow and I'm finally feeling fit and well and so is my girlfriend who's had flu for the last two weeks
last hard: last week
last rest: thursday

Another weight off my mind is I had to change my shoes and as they don't make the model I wear anymore I've got to change - and the new ones (just running them in at the moment) make the old oness seem, well, so last year!

and it's sunny.

and I'm cooking kedgeree

Didn't post yesterday, but that was a rest day anyway. As for today:

What: 10 miles. This is the longest I have run since I returned to running and it was a bit of a struggle. Mainly because I had a massive hill after 5 miles. I'm used to big hills but they're usually early in my routes when I'm fresh, not 5 miles in. But I somehow resisted the urge to walk, although my pace was only just above walking pace at times. But when I finally got to the top had a "Nothing can stop me now" feeling and was strong for the remainder of the run. I'm glad I did it.
Why: Need to start running further.
Last Rest: yesterday.
Last Hard: Today definately counts!

Annoyingly the batteries went on my Timex SDM half way through, so I don't know exactly how far I went. But I did a reccy in my car last night and that came to 10.2 miles.

Good luck anyone who is racing.

Good luck with the nationals Tim.
What- actually did 40 minutes on the turbo trainer in front of Lord of the Rings then jumped on the treadmill for 3 miles, am taking it easy as I've got last cross country then 30 mile canal run back after.
22/02/2003 at 14:33
hi again everyone - what a sensational day.

hilly - good luck with the 22 miler, what a fantastic part of the world you've got there!

Monique - 30 miles after a x-country race!!!! did I read that correctly? guess that theory about women not training as hard as men needs some serious revision ;-)

Laura - I've only ventured out in full chemical and biological protective gear - made running this morning a bit of a chore!

what: 8 miles fartlek with 1K reps @ faster than 10K pace
why: trying foolishly to cram four days training into three (injury in waiting!)
last hard day: yesterday's 2M intervals
last rest: Thursday (enforced by w@rk -grrrr)

enjoy the great weather, everyone - I reckon we've deserved it after the last two months.
22/02/2003 at 14:59
What : 20k rowing with 5x4x3x2x1 race pieces thrown in for good measure
Why : Racing tomorrow, should have had a second outing but the 8 Novices using the boat between outings decided to write it off with another 8. Will be using the womens 8 tomorrow then for the race

Last Hard : This morning probably, more although Wednesday was a lot harder

Last Rest : Friday!

Happy running all and what ever other sports you're doing
22/02/2003 at 16:22

Good luck to you all for your events over the weekend.

What: Full weight body session

Why: Thats what saturday is planned for

Last Hard: Thursday

Last Rest: Friday

Hoping to put in a 18 miler tomorrow.

Cheers Achilles! I agree where I live is actually a beautiful part of the world. I don't quite appreciate it when I'm trudging up Portland hill, but on the way back down, now that's bliss and then I can actually appreciate the view.

Went further than planned because I was feeling so good. Did just over 23 miles in 3hrs 3mins, which for the route I ran was very good. The sun was shining, which was great, but still rather windy, but at least it wasn't a cold wind! For the first 15 miles I actually felt like I was jogging, but was enjoying being out so much I had no intention of pushing the pace. Felt relaxed for the whole run, with only the last 3, very undulating, causing me to feel tired. Did the last 5 miles in 38.45, which again is pleasing and could have gone on and finished a marathon. Just a shame there still weeks to go.

Best of luck Monique on that huge run and of course the x-country!!

How did you get on Snick?

Everyone else well done on your runs and keep up the good work.

Doesn't it feel great when the run is done!
