24/12/2002 at 09:08

What: 7 Miles, 10 Minute Warm Up, then 10 * 1 Minute Fast (2 Minute jog receovery), finish the 7 miles.

Why : rest day

Outrunning, how can you go running at this time of the morning in this weather???


24/12/2002 at 09:28
What: Legs stil knackered from Sunday when I over did it! Shame actually, thee club's doing 8 miles over Epsom Downs which sounds good.

Should make it out the door tomorrow if the blood content of my alcohol stream gets high enough!

HMG - going running in this weather (and a lot worse!) is pretty much necessary in this country if you're training for a spring marathon or something. It gets a lot worse than this!!
24/12/2002 at 09:30
What: Vacuuming, dusting, cleaning bathroom, washing kitchen floor. Will try to fit a resistance session in somewhere (probably the living room)

Why: Got to make room for Christmas somehow.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Went out for a 20 mile run.

Only got 200 yards. It's hard to run with a chimp on your back all the time!

Maybe try again later.

Morning all
Damp & dull, but lovely and mild here.

Sleep disturbed again last night as I got a call from work at 00:20. Partially made up for it this morning.

What: Depends on how I feel, but either
9.3K at intended Helsby race pace (6:24 per mile)
or my 10.3K course at same pace if I'm feeling good
or 3 x 2 miles at 6:20 pace off 3 minute or 1/3 mile jogged recoveries.

Why: Don't know how I'll feel after the weekend efforts (though stiffness from Sun has gone). If I do the latter (round a circuit which stays close to home), I'll be able to back off (leave out a rep) if I find it too hard.

Last hard days: Sun, Fri
Last rest days: Mon, Sat
24/12/2002 at 10:48
What 6-8 Miles
Why A four year Christmas Eve tradition.

Nice wind down at lunchtime from work.
24/12/2002 at 10:59
What: 5 miler at some point today
Why: schedule says so and had big fat bloater chinese last night (food not fella!)

Leaving work in 10 mins so:

Merry Xmas Wolfy, and everyone else.

Runner - a well aimed blow to the nethers will get rid of that chimp, but maybe you should use him for a bit of resistance training.

What: Today I will need a LOOOONNNNGG run. Mum is here for Xmas, and is driving me nuts already. I've only been at work for 2 hours and she's phoned twice already (I don't NEED to know the window cleaner is here!) and spent last night following me from room to room.

Why: To maintain sanity and Christmas spirit.

Planning to run every day until coming back to work on 6th January.

24/12/2002 at 12:12
What: 6 x Mile in spikes, offroad, 5:45 avg., 45 second jog recoveries
Why: Horwill say's
Last Hard: Today! Yippee!
Last Rest: Saturday, (Booo!)

Merry Xmas everybody!

with relatives and family buzzing around today, that 16 miler is getting increasingly more distant. might split it up into two sessions.

anyway, merry christmas everyone:)

Merry Christmas all, hope everyone has a great day tomorrow and a little of what they wished for!

What: 10 miles in my santa hat (got quite a few honks from motorists)@ 1/2 marathon pace-7:06 min miles.
Why: wanted a longish hard run before having my 2 days of rest.
Last hard: today
Last rest: from running yesterday, but not from training. Thursday was my last day of doing nothing.

Be merry, ho,ho,ho!
