Good to see you back running, hope it goes well. Our club runs a handicap competition which I am doing quite well in as it is my first year running and I've improved a fair bit since the handicap times were set. One more race to go this weekend, still waiting on the last races results, there seems to be some confusion as to whether the handicap times hould be adjusted for XC. I've found it a good motivator.

Right back to it today, going to Lancaster & Morecambe Running Club tonight, have to get my fat lardy @rse back into lycra and keep up the training, all this domesticity isn't doing me any good.

Nice to have you back WildWill.

What: 10 mile fartlek with club
Why: I ask myself the same question every Tuesday night when I'm drowning in an ocean of lactic acid.
Last hard run: Saturday
Last rest day: Monday

Didn't do nowt on Sunday as viciously hungover, took Monday off as per usual, so feeling well rested right now. Probably a good thing since Keyworth Turkey Trot is this Sunday. Speaking of which are you coming to this one Drew?
03/12/2002 at 11:42
morning, folks.

what: 5 miles @ 6:55 pace
why: recovery run
last hard day: yesterday
last rest: Sunday
03/12/2002 at 11:55
Achilles, how can 6:55 pace be considered recovery??? Makes me feel soooooo slow!

What: 3.6 miles recovery.
Why: 4.1 miles tempo last night and legs are aching a bit.
Last hard: Yesterday (well, hard-ish anyway).
Last rest: Sunday - just no time last weekend to fit in a long run :-(
03/12/2002 at 11:57
Morning all. Am going to make a big effort to do a bit of running & tell you all (if you're interested) as have just realised 10K is rapidly approaching on 22nd Dec & it's my last chance of the year to achieve my 2002 resolution of a sub 50 minute.

What: Club run tonight, somewhere between 5-7 miles, could be hilly, always fast.
Why: They'll all be on the phone if I don't go. Also need to hand over money for Xmas meal.
Last hard day: Saturday 10 miles. Club mate turned up & insisted I run. Very glad I did, we managed to organise lots of Xmas present ideas whilst dodging horses on Epsom Downs.
Last rest: Sunday.
Last rest before that: Most of last week. Shame on me!

well done folks to all racers over the weekend, not able to post sooner as I ahd to help france eliminate its wine lake yesterday!

What: Gym based execise to protect L knee
why: trying to keep CV fitness to allow knee max recovery oppty
last hard: sat X/C see below
last rest : sun/mon

Sat was my First X/C race for 20+ years, thought I'd share the experience since it did for my sunday Road 10k.

Loop1 – a quick 400m up a slope and round a nice playing field to spread the field (you can see these things at the back – taking it steady to get a rhythm
Loop2 – up the opening slope again, turn right through the trees, down/across the hill, dodge the branches, deep mud. Turn uphill to narrow stony, tree-rooted single file path (phew!), turn left 20m, long, long,long uphill (HR >95%), turn left and more uphill (dodge the rabbit holes). Hooray downhill, stretch legs , pace change is HUGE, handbrake turn Right into trees, S bend through the potholes, sidestep the trees across the hillside again and out onto the lower field, for more descent
Loop 3 repeat loop 2, only slower uphill and downhill
Loop 4 repeat loop 3, holding steady, got lapped on the downhill(!)
Loop 5 repeat loop 4, hope to increase pace at the end but ... disaster, knee feels a bit wobbly so ease off and avoid final sprint, 40mns and 5+ miles is up.

Breathless, maybe injured (later yes) but throughly enjoyable, glad I wore studs, probably finished in the last quarter. WHR avg 91%

03/12/2002 at 14:05
What: Hill reps + 40 minute turbo trainer pm
Why: It's good to do something that you don't like doing (hill reps!).
