Morning all :) Not posted for a while, no reason - just busy. I try and skim read the threads - some really good work going on out there :)

nrg-b, I missed what your worry is for your sister. Spend what time you can together, my best wishes to you both.

ICRAM, congratulations - you'll be needing some tiny running shoes now!

What: Maybe a recovery run - thighs permitting.

Why: 5 miles on Sunday being chased by Poppy in a Dragon vest!

Last hard: no prizes for guessing when!

Last rest: Yesterday

Morning all,
7-mile run and 2hr gym session for me last night, both went very well. Focusing more on core stability work at the gym and endurance reps for the legs, seems to be working so far!

am: 6-mile at 7:20mm pace, nice and steady, legs a little tired from yesterday but not to bad.

pm: Track session with IEK Group + Circuits
I think its the following tonight:-
500m, 1-min recovery, 1000m 4min recovery x3.

Speed endurance and faster running today.

I currently only have one coach, but I take advice off MG on his thread as well and do some of my own program now.

I was wearing 12mm spikes, thing was, the course was a lot firmer than I thought, plus they put in some trails/tracks, and my 12mm were just too long for the conditions. I have raced in 15mm before, especially at parliment Hills ;p

Afternoon All (its past 1200 here)

What: 7 miles recovery
Why: Pushed it last night, got under 50 mins for 10K for the first time since injury .. Yarhoo.... Only another 7 mins to knock off to get back to where I was.

Last Hard: Last night

Whats all this talk of gillets and thermals, its a beautiful 32C here today with a cool breeze of the sea.
I can no longer imagine what its like to have to swim indoors in a pool stinking of chlorine or run in the wind and rain, give me the warmth anyday. I don't actually possess any running tights or long sleeve tops!

Morning all,

What: 8.5 miles in my new 2100's
Why: Mileage building
Last Hard: 9 days
Lyrics: Yes, great song

Welcome Cartman

Sportaloo - can't post a picture, they don't do the photos on the web out here. We only just got chip timing for the first time last week! Anyway, I would break the impression that "everyone looks young!"
15/11/2005 at 11:53
At 44 (almost 45), I'm quite pleased if someone thinks I look young!!!
15/11/2005 at 11:58
DD - Same here, don't know what the fuss is about <stands by for barracking>
15/11/2005 at 12:02
What? Club run tonight
Why? Easy

Sqeezed in another 5m in the gym yesterday, but could feel the knee afterwards. Knee has not cleared up yet, needs more Ibuprofen. The intercostal muscle strain has quite improved a bit, though likely another week required before back to normal.
15/11/2005 at 12:07
What: 2km swim am
Why: Xtraining and legs are in bits
Last Hard: Yesterday
Last Rest: 6 days
15/11/2005 at 12:22

I've finally come down with the bug that's been doing the rounds at work. Lots of sneezing and a bit of easy running for me today.

What: 8m am/something easy pm if I feel up to it
Why: ill
Last hard: trying to stop my nose running for long enough to get to sleep last night :o(
Last rest: 27 days

Have a good one.

Sportaloo - found a non-running picture of me on the web for the Mrs.


How do I do that link stuff??
15/11/2005 at 12:31
Afternoon all.

what: 7.6m supposed to be sub 135 but ended up more like sub 125...following Sunday's long run my legs are knackered...is it possible to limp on two legs???this was possibly my worst run ever..very, very, very slow...not good...not sure why my legs are so painful, they felt fine after last week's 22m run...the only difference was that I finished Sunday's run with a fast (for me) 1.7 miles...perhaps this is what's done the damage (sore right foot, ankle, knee, hip...you name it..)...hopefully I will feel better for tomorrow's run
why: need to keep mileage up
last hard: Sunday
last rest: Monday

feeling a bit down after this run.....still, will see what tomorrow brings

Okay, links ....

You have to express the (hyper)link in HTML (the lingo of the web).


Hope it displays okay. Use without the {}. The A, means anchor and HREF is the target of the anchor. Everything is (or should be) "tagged/marked", hence a closing /A tag.
15/11/2005 at 12:34
{<}{A} {HREF="http://...."}{>}Text{<}/A{>}
15/11/2005 at 12:44

My Link

Just realised I forgot to say a huge well done to WP on yet another PB. So - WELL DONE!!

Cartman - welcome - the IMers are taking over...

I went out this morning aiming to do 4 miles and did a bit over 5 - it's such a lovely day. HR behaving a bit better today, but I'm getting drift after about 4 miles. Not like on the bike where I can go for a good few hours with no drift.

The darkness is a bit dismal but the temperatures are great for running. I love running on cold days. 32C is way too warm for me - even ambling about.

Melissa: re: turbo and sweating - have you seen those thongs for catching the sweat? Great marketing!

Aardvark -take it easy and get well soon.

David - sometimes is the cummulative effect of two long runs a week apart. If it's very sore take a day off - you're only 19 days out from a maratho

Thanks for the pic Trini,great article too. (Okay so it's a slow day at the office here)

Thank you for the advice,NZC you are correct in saying that it is indeed part of the bigger picture. I will do an easy 16 mile run and then have a very easy week next week. Thanks again for the advice.

Hi all, now back into my flat, back into running and getting rid of some excess weight due to constant eating out for 2 months.

Easing back in with a short outing over lunch, hope to do the same tonight...
What: 2.5 miles d&d / 2.5m pm?
Why: easing back in

Belated congratulations to the ICRAMs for new baby Henry.

Positive vibes to nrg-b's family...

Morning all,

debbo - here's wishing your Mr. a smooth uncomplicated recovery. Get the core stability lessons booked! (Those muscles usually need a refresher course after back troubles.)

Me? Yippppeeeeee! got out, ran 2 miles, which sounds pathetic, but given the degree of lameness on Sunday, I am delighted.

Still icing the thing, and shall invite massage artiste to attack it tomorrow (that will take some courage!), but next Sunday begins to look a distinct possibility again.

I'm pretty sure it was a nerve crying wolf rather than a real injury, given other bizarre sensations and the come and go nature of the problem.

Afternoon All,

LizzyB: If you're taking up knitting, I could do with some new shorts.

JM: I'd love to know what HM shape I'm in. But I'm not going to find out unless I do one between now and the start of FLM training! I'm considering having a serious crack at one after FLM. Although, I've just noticed it's the Gosport Half on Sunday - Hmmmmmmm!

Welcome Cartman.

What: 9m steady. Wound it up for last 2.
Why: Think I've recovered
Last Hard: Dublin Marthathon
Last Rest: 11 days

Have a good one.
