Despite working a 12 hour day yesterday managed to get "out" well actually in on my treadmill for 30 minutes. Accelerated up to 7:30 mile pace without any twinges - which was nice.

What: Unsure as another 12 day beckons (full days work followed by train to Munich). May try and squeeze in 30 minutes late this evening.
Why: All I can do under the circumstances.

Unpromising here too & trying to rain (as forecast).

What: Don't know yet. Will find out when I turn up on Hoylake prom this evening and train with other runners from Wirral AC. First time I'll ever have done a session with other athletes.

Last Rest : Sunday
Last Hard : Still over two weeks ago

Mike S,
have great fun at your first club night. I can honestly say that joining a club has been the single best thing I've ever done for my training and (much to my wife's delight) I have expanded my circle of friends to include a plethora of like-minded masochists who enjoy nothing more than running their lungs out and then sitting around drinking beer and discussing VO2 max, anaerobic threshold and many other fascinating topics!

Laura L,
thanks for the message about the message! Must admit I've tried avoiding using the URWRCF forums as I already spend waaaay too much time on here, so I don't know the URL/web address, can someone post it for me, THANKS.

What: 9 mile fartlek in the pi**ing rain with club
Why: umm, ask me once I'm done
Last hard run: Sunday
Last rest day: Monday
15/10/2002 at 11:04
Hello everyone, it is raining in Scunthorpe

What: 2 1/2 mile fast
Why: Get some speed work into my legs
Last Hard run: Monday
Lastr est day: Saturday

Steady on MM - I haven't joined Wirral. The club itself is 10 miles away, and I suspect that if I joined & went there on my own account regularly (as opposed to taking Matthew there), Mrs S would be less than impressed. (Bear in mind she already has to put up with my cricketing activities in the summer.)
Rather, it's that a significant number of their runners (several of whom finished ahead of me on Sunday) train pretty close to where I live, on Tuesday night.
Yes, I am a bit nervous about it!

Also making me nervous is the fact that I've been awaiting a response from Vrap on the subject of echinacea. For some reason I feel like Bob Peck in Jurassic Park..... ;-)

no running - flu

feel pants -still have to work
15/10/2002 at 13:15
What: some sort of interval session after work, 5 miles probably
Why: marathon taper fortnight

Weather cold and wet in Aberdeen, good acclimatisation for Dublin.
