Last night was an indoor cross train session, bike and rower, just for interest I put an HRM on myself to see where it was relative to running. On the bike I was in the mid-140's and on the rower high 130's to low 140's. This is broadly equivalent to my long run pace although it certainly didn't feel that easy! (possibly to do with working undeveloped muscle groups quite hard).

Thaw conditions have hit Germany and yesterdays snow is melting fast.

Today: Treadmill session plus rower.
Why: Knee feels quite good but need to not push it too hard too soon.
Last rest: Thursday
Last Hard: N/A

Incidently I have also started doing sit-ups regularly and after having started with an embarrassing 15 three weeks ago I'm now up to a conmfortable 30.

Good morning, Martin! Pleased to hear that conditions underfoot in Lieberswurstland are getting less hazardous.

What: 4 mile walk/run, mostly walk. Limited more by the fact that I was wearing three layers of non-technical gear plus a coat than by anything else.
Why: Because I couldn't sleep and the central heating hadn't come on yet.
Last hard day: Fairly hard one on Sunday.
Last rest day: Monday week.

Morning all. Well earned rest for me today. Have ran 3 days on the trot including last night's club session which was hard. 4 m @ 8min pace + hill rep session.

what : nowt
why : rest
last hard :yesterday
last rest : Friday

I think i will begin to taper for Helsby and ease off on the schedule for a few days. I'm very keen to go under 1h50 for the first time and i think the boost from that will out weigh the lost training.

Morning all!

What: 6 Miles easy
Why: Training Schedule says so!

Last Hard: Last Nights Speed Session! (10 Minute Warm up at 10KMPH, then 3 * 1KM at 15KMPH with 2 Minute Jog Recoveries)

Last Rest: Sunday!

Looking for to this Sunday's 10 Mile race at Dartford.

Hello :)

What: some form of speed work. This'll be my first speed training - I actually woke up in the night worrying about whether I'd be able to work out how to do it!...
Why: it's on my marathon schedule

Last hard: 6m last night felt hard
Last rest: Sunday
14/01/2003 at 08:38
Morning everyone! Back from my week in Scotland, where I had some lovely runs (bit nippy though). Swam yesterday, and today it'll be 4 miles easy plus some weights
Why: its on the schedule
Last hard: Sat
Last rest: Sun
14/01/2003 at 09:03
Morning all. Feeling good today!
What: 1:05, 8 miles, speed session. 90 secs; 3 mins; 6 mins; 12 mins - roughly equivalent to sub 3:30 schedule
Why: schedule and feeling determined
Last hard: Sunday
Last rest: yesterday
Thoughts whilst running: this might be a log too far for some of you, but I always forget and sometimes, well, you know you should listen to your running self...
So here's my salient thoughts...
1. Must get to a track for speed sessions (was that 6:20 I ran really a mile, or was it under?)
2. Must get new trainers. The £20 New Balance ones I got on an internet clearance sale are fine - but are they good enough for a marathon?
3. Must get to a physio as this left leg thing isn't going away and I've got lots of people coming to see me in Connemara
(as I said 'salient' thoughts, those relevant to running only!)
14/01/2003 at 09:05
Don't want my left leg to go away, just the niggle from the hip through to the knee. Oh, god, forgot to stretch again!
14/01/2003 at 09:15
Morning everyone, feeling good, despite lingering knee niggles...
What: 6 Miles Steady Dad Fartlek in 38:02
Why: Loosen/test legs for tomorow nights speed session
Last Hard: Sunday
Last Rest: Yesterday
Good Running all...
P.S. Laura, start tapering! ;)
14/01/2003 at 09:32
what: visit physio and see what he says re knee
why: wait & see
last hard day: Mon
last rest : sat

this knee thing is obviously infectious: good luck Snicks,KK, MartinH

Had to change the piccy - had too many complaints that the real me was too annoying, so now am young, blonde and in uniform and spend my time rescuing people.

What : 4 mile easy recovery jog after yesterdays longer effort

Last Hard : yesterday
Last rest : Sunday
14/01/2003 at 09:50
Morning Folks!

Last Rest : Sat
14/01/2003 at 09:53

What: Club night.

14/01/2003 at 09:54
Morning all...

What - 5m slow instead of the speed session on the schedule (which I'll do tomorrow instead of the 5m slow)
Why - out last night, not feeling bright enough for speedwork :(
Last rest - yesterday
Last hard - Sunday, long run at marathon pace

Don't feel like going out at all....yawn....but it'll do me good!
14/01/2003 at 10:03

What: forum recovery day. (Keep forum contributions to under 70.)
Why: ask Achilles. :)
Last hard: yesterday.

Paul, can't see you have any problem with a sub50 on the basis of that session!
Welcome back to the Training thread Vrap, and good luck everyone with niggles.

I'm resting today like everyone told me to.

Have a good day all.
14/01/2003 at 10:04
OK, make that 1.50 paul!
14/01/2003 at 10:17
Hi all!

Good luck to knee people.

What: 75 minutes on the road, probably about 6 miles.

Cause I said I'm going to try for it.

Beginning to take it more in my stride, but left leg is still very very stiff. I might investigate a massage today.

So far so good. Run well.
14/01/2003 at 10:56
First session with personal trainer today, and then club run tonight (think its hills whooppee).

14/01/2003 at 10:58
Hi all,

Good luck to the injured parties - speedy recovery to you.

What: Rest (Yippee!)
Why: Two days' consecutive running after some fairly erratic training over Christmas.
Last hard: Yesterday, which was supposed to be an easy recovery run.
Last rest: Saturday.

Still having pacing problems. Went out last night for a 4-mile recovery run. I didn't think I was running that fast (except maybe at the start) but ran it only one minute slower than the same route done at tempo pace on Friday. I was trying to take it easy after my longer run on Sunday (also supposed to be slow but run at about the same pace!) but somehow it didn't seem to happen. At this rate I shall end up injuring something.

Goooooooooooooooood Morning Forumites!!!!
what: first Yasso 800's session to give it a try. mile warm up then 6 reps with recoveries and mile cool down. Total 7 miles in 1 hour.
Why: something different for my intervals

Last hard: before today, Sunday
Last rest: Friday

Minkin, do you use an HRM? I had the same problem as you till I started using one to help control my enthusiasm and it has made a difference to my slow runs that are now actually slow.
