but my two feet can't find a way.

What:                         turbo.
Why:                           little choice.
Last hard:                 nothing hard at the minute.
Last rest:                  7/9.

Back is improving but of course not quickly enough for me. Coach has put me on the turbo now until Friday - when I get to try a swim. Oh yippee.

What: nothing so far
Why: recovery
Last hard: marathon  on sunday
Last rest: yesterday

back to work today  I really do need to find another way of earing a living.

Might run when I get home as my legs are actually feeling OK.  My DOMs appears not to have been delayed at all, had it all yesterday and now it's getting better. 

Have a good day.  I won't.

Morning All

What: 5 miles easy
Why: Have a 5K race on Thursday and realised last night when pushing on at club run that in my old age I probably can't cope with two hard days in succession anymore. So easy today, rest tomorrow, should probably be two days rest but I can't cope with that!
Last hard: Last night 5K TT (on the hilly course where the race will be held on Thursday) in 38C in 21-10 (this actually include a 10M walk going up the hill!)
Last Rest: Friday

To those that asked Garmin 310XT seems pretty similar to all the other Garmins I've had, (301, 305, 405) in use, however never liked the 405 as bezel doesn't like sweat. 310 Reportedly has a 20 hour battery life which is the bit that appealed to the ultra runner in me. Like Joe Hawk I hate the Orange colour. No idea what they cost in UK their about 200GBP here.

Run well

Good afternoon, everyone
Been a bit sidetracked the last 3 days, those bathrooms don't redecorate themselves, so been busy with paints, tiles and grouting while wedged into small gaps.
Had a read back so e & oe....
welcome Xk & Hoofin
nice 800s from 40 and Andy B, must admit yasso s are my favourite speedwork (if there is sucha thing)
Nice win Gobi in Denmark and Hilly in less glamarous surroundings, and super racing from RFJ at Overton, like the course there, although not run it for 2 or 3 years.
TmR the LDWA event sounded good, I like a lot of their events, must try to do more
Well done to mava on teh mara, Tec at the 10m and DesRes on the 10k peebee
Ryan - goooooaaaaaaaaaallllll - NICE!
plus some decent mileage logged rom SL, Paddy,40, AF & XK
TT - all the best

Saturday - no running
Sunday - 11 or 12 easy miles
Monday - 4 recovery
Today - club night so who knows


08/09/2009 at 12:36

I find this lyrics thing tough enough without taking them out of the middle!

What:  12 slow miles
Why:  Something to do while Ford undertake some minor surgery on car
Last hard:  2 days
Last rest:  4 or 5 days, lost track(!)

Club night tomorrow.

08/09/2009 at 12:47

A'noon peeps.

What:4M in the pouring rain

Quiet on here today eh !

Read back time and a no for the lyrics as usual.

Have a good one.

08/09/2009 at 13:48

Quiet today. Not much more to say - back to work!!

Disappointing 6M from me at lunch time.  Original plan was an intervals session.  However, yesterday I managed to stand on something sharp in the kitchen and now have a tiny, tiny cut on my foot.  Wouldn't be anything to comment on except that it is exactly where I land with each stride!  Set off today to see what it felt like and it was almost immediately clear I wouldn't be going anywhere quickly.  Toyed with the idea of just turning round, but it started to settle down a bit, so I kept going.  But I couldn't get any speed up and legs felt pretty dead.

Anyway, got back to the office and discovered a) a blood stained sock and b) a small (very small) piece of glass in my foot.  Couldn't see it yesterday when I looked, but I guess I was lucky and running on it moved it out rather than further in.

Foot now feeling much, much better!

Dustin - snap - although I cheated and got someone else to do the tricky bits - am now painting whenever I get the chance, but am the proud owner of a new bath/shower/toilet/wash basin with associated tiling etc.

Have a good day.

Mava - hope you can find a way, still trying myself. Enjoy your rest you deserve it

Today i had planned on 8 quarter milers (plus toying with different recoveries) today i recovered when HR went below 120 i think one of the earlier coaches of yesteryear suggested this method

But it was very warm, brought a bottle of water stuck it by a tree intervals on grass field half was up a gradual slope into a headwind so that has to be worth a second or two. Decided to cut it short after 4 reps could feel it in my legs.

good news for me. I thought i might miss some of the open graded track meets held locally over the winter but they are on a week earlier than they were last year. so it will be more mile and 5000m races this winter, maybe the odd 800m

What: 3.23 miles (including 4 x ┬╝miles - 1:55, 1:52, 1:54, 1;58)
Why: teach legs whats it like
Last Hard: Today
Lyrics: ha ha ha - NO

08/09/2009 at 14:52
SGQ - Youwwwwww!!!! Hope you are ok. Have you got someone to look at it to make sure nothing else is there. I know what its like
08/09/2009 at 15:35
Pammie - it's definitely OK now.  It's had a good examination and, anyway, I can feel when I walk around that it is clear now.  It was one of those where you don't realise how uncomfortable it felt until it stops.  Like when you have a cold, think you are getting better, and then wake up one morning and think "Ah - that's what it actually feels like when you are better".

Afternoon all,

LMH:  The head is currently dis-associating itself from anything to do with the absurd activity I intend to undertake on the 20th

RFJ:  congrats on the mug!

SGQ:  Ouch!

  • What:  10mi with 10x100m strides
  • Why:  General aerobic and taper.  Slightly promising as 2 min quicker that I've run this route before. 
  • Last Hard:  Friday
  • Last Rest:  22/8

Have a good one!

Looking good AF!

Few people sounding not very happy at the moment.

Mava - good news the legs aren't too bad.

Dubai Dave - good luck with the 5k on Thursday. I've  never had a garmin - sounds like they are a pretty neat tool

What: O'Hagan's 5k - best time for a long while, and as like everyone else, I'm getting older all the time - 21.30 - should be happy, but was actually pretty unhappy to start with as a few women went past me on  the return journey!

Up early as I'm paying for it - bad cramp in legs - hate to think what they'd be like if I'd run a marathon!

Good running everyone.

08/09/2009 at 18:26

evening all.

quiet on here indeed.

No running for me this evening. My legs might be OK-ish but my feet are killing me.  Most of the second half of sundays marathon was on concrete seafront and the balls of both feet are really sore.  Hope to be able to run tomorrow though. 

Good run at O'Hagan's NZC.

SGQ - ouch.  Glad you got that sorted though. 

Pammie - should be good for you to get to some track meets.

Have a good evening all. 

08/09/2009 at 18:50
Evening all,

RFJ - you can't lose at the mo !!!

NZC -nice 5k time, hope the legs recover sooner rather than later.

Mava - hope you are able to run again soon

SGQ - ouch - good to hear further injury has been avoided and good work out considering the handicap you endured

Dustin - thanks for the mention, enjoy your new bathroom!

LMH - glad there's been some improvement today, can i ask what the turbo is ? excuse my ignorance

as for me, was not sure whether to train today or have a rest. i got some chores done in town had some lunch and mulled it over.

come mid afternoon i felt i would go for a run, my first run since Sundays 10 miler, very glad to say no ill effects and had a nice steady paced 5 mile run inc some hills.

entered a new race yesterday night so i have a target in mind for my training. i am going to do the inaugural "South Molton Struggle" approx 7 Mile multi terrain run on October 11th, am really pleased as the post race blues were setting in, i really like to have targets for my training.

what - Hilly 5.5 miles
Why - schedule
Last Hard - Sunday
Lyrics - i've looked the artist up, i would never have got it anyways

NZC, that's a mighty fine improvement over the last few months. Well done

What: am discus session with coach; lunchtime: 3.5ml easy; pm: 6.5ml
Supposed to be a track session, but legs still feeling very tired, perhaps after Saturday, rather than the marathon, or perhaps it is more that my head still isn't ready for a proper session
