Morning all - Seems to have warmed up a bit in Germany and it was 6.5 degrees in my village this morning.

Last night was cross training so I did 25 minutes on stationery cycle (13 km) and 12 minutes on the rower. Much harder session than I expected and was sweating like a you-know-what. A friend has asked me if I want to the the L'etap du tour and I'm seriously tempted, info here for anyone else who might be interested - seems like a challenge (Drew? Marmite Master?)

Today: 40 minutes steady
Why: All I can manage with sore knee at the moment.
Last hard day: Well yesterday wasn't easy
Last rest day: Friday

Doing all my non-treadmill sessions in the dark at the moment (no street lights where I live) and finding my Petzl headtorch really quite fun - recommended!

Spent 3hrs in the hospital last night to get my ankle checked out, could just about walk, and there is no sign of damage to the ankle or the foot, so just advised rest.

What: Nowt
Why: Read above
Last Hard: Sunday
Last Rest: monday

Good morning everyone

What: either nothing or treadmill intervals (think I'll try 800m ones)

Why: trying to keep up the hard/easy split of effort, wes will be enforced rest and last night was a 7.5mi/70% HR steady effort.

last hard day: sun (short race= tempo run)
last rest: sat

some seriously impressive reports by folks of their recent efforts: Hilly, Parky, Laura L - well done to all.

BTW Laura I found your fell race report most enightening/daunting. After your advice earlier in the year I'd presumed you were a downhill expert - you know wings, feet hardly touch the ground etc. And 1800ft....half that did for me and it was dry! don't think I'm ready for that yet.
12/11/2002 at 09:34

What: Nothing
Why: Long run yesterday

Last Hard: Yesterday
Last rest: Sunday

HRM comes tomorrow, so will be starting heart rate training from then.

Morning all,

Hurrah, appalling weather and my day off for running.

Sorry to hear about continuing injuries - how does it affect the day job PSI?

What: xtraining - upper body strength and stretching - in the privacy of my own landing.
Why: I'm a sissy. And seriously out of proportion!

Thanks sfh legs, yeah I thought I was more experienced too, until I tried keeping up with the experts running downhill quickly.
Now, about my HR...
12/11/2002 at 10:03
Morning All,

sorry to hear about your injuries Psi and Speedie. Try not to get too frustrated as I'm sure we all know how annoying injuries can be.

What : Nothing
Why : My legs are a bit sore, and got a work meeting (grrr work interfering with my running!), where we may find out how many of us are for the chop (what a nice Christmas present).

Last Hard Day : Sunday
Last Rest Day : Saturday

Hi Everybody

What: hour an a half gentle jog around my local town.
Why: otherwise I'd be with the boys on the Tuesday night sup, and since I'm again trying to kick the evil weed, I think its best to keep temptation at arms length!

Have a good 'un all and lets hope this rain lets off a bit - otherwise I'll just have ducks for company tonight!
12/11/2002 at 10:11
Martin, a very tempting offer. Do you know what stage they will be covering next year?

Parky, good luck today. I went through the same scenario last month. Not a very nice experience, especially when your best friend gets the chop and you don't!

What: am - weights + 4.2 miles steady, pm - 8 miles, including 4 miles at 10k pace
Why: planned sessions.
Last hard day: yesterday's hill reps were a wee bit hard
Last rest day: Friday
12/11/2002 at 10:17

What: probably resting, with some strength and stretching this evening. Although I may nip out for a few miles
Why: Got a serious all-day boozing and eating session lined up for tomorrow, so need to arrange training around that.
Last hard day: Yesterday's 13 miles
Last rest: Sunday

12/11/2002 at 10:22
Hi all. Psi, Speedie, I hope you both make an uneventful recovery. Parky, I hope you don't get the chop unless the chop is what you want.

What: Just swimming, alas.
Why: Kevin-sitting tonight, and unlikely to be able to stray far from workplace during daylight hours. Still, better than nothing, but I'm a one-stroke wonder so my swims are no more than fat-burning and maintenance sessions.
Last hard day: Sunday.
Last rest day: Yesterday.
12/11/2002 at 10:27
Morning all.

Injured friends - rest, rest and more rest! Do not be tempted to venture out before you're really ready.

What: Hopefully 4-mile tempo run, if it's not chucking it down. Otherwise, probably nothing. I don't mind running in the rain, but the current torrential downpours are no fun at all.
Why: I haven't been doing much in terms of working on improving my speed over the past few weeks, due to a slight calf strain followed by a heavy cold. Need to restart a few tempo sessions and some speed work.
Last hard: Last REALLY hard some time ago; last relatively hard probably about 3 weeks ago.
Last rest: Yesterday.
12/11/2002 at 10:29
what: the Tuesday quality session with the Wirral runners
why: a question I may well ask myself towards the end of the session

last hard day: Tue
last long day: Sun
last rest day: Mon

Laura - wrt your problems recovering from the club session (posted yesterday) - I quite understand! At the moment, even on Thursday I'm not quite back to normal.
12/11/2002 at 10:37
What: 5K treadmill, fast as I can.
Why: Rationed to 5K every other day by the physio, no speedwork - want to maximise the benefits! Treadmill for logistical convenience - stuff happening tonight.

Last rest: Monday
Last hard: Sunday - Stowmarket 7
12/11/2002 at 10:49
What: 10 mile fartlek with club
Why: It's the done thing.
LAst hard run: Tonight
Last rest day: Yesterday

I'm really frightened by the statement "It's an absolute classic Alpine mountain stage...", since Ulrich, Armstrong and Pantanni (sic?) look like they suffer on these stages which would virtually guarantee a near-death experience for me ;-)
