Guess who starts work again tomorrow? Today.
I suppose that I ought to review other things in my life. Now that Christmas and New Year are officially history, a period of sobriety could be called for. The mileage will be needed to help the weights line. After yesterday's decent outing I suppose that plodding is on the agenda. Longer slower calorie burning miles.
Have fun whatever you do.
Longer slower calorie burning miles - i like it
What: 6 miles Why: because i canLast Hard: Still can't remember
I have a gut feeling (you know, the 'watch that jelly wobble' feeling) that I need to do some calorie burning too, Blisters!
Resurfaced after the festive season's excesses scraping in on barely right side of 80 kilos, and plenty of brain and liver cells never made it to 2008. The food back home is still great and the assorted breweries still concoct a mighty fine 'triple' beer.Even managed 2 runs along the country lanes around my dad's to at least transport some oxigen around my body too. It didn't get rejected as a foreign substance, so some success there
Best wishes to all and I've raised plenty of glasses to toast for great things to come in 2008 for all of you individually. Cheers.
What: club runWhy: get the year going and catch up with friendsLast rest: yesterdayLast hard: getting out of the car yesterday after driving for the better part of the day.
PS: I'll try and read back a bit at some point
cheers to you too imski for 2008
great result yesterday gobi, impressive splits and finishing position. lots more in store for you this year
hope you are over the lurgy pammie
what - warm up, 8 X 100m fast, warm downwhy - session is called pure speed but it probably won't look like thatlast hard - 2 dayslast rest - 3 dayslyrics - yes
good plan sharkie, i think if you listen to it you'll know what it wants you to do. also you aren't doing longer runs on it so that's in your favour. (i raced a half marathon as it was still getting worse, i don't know what i was thinking about really). the clink think is just a mucking about of my first name (clare) by mrC from many many years ago, sometimes comes out as cling or clurk, he spouts a lot of rubbish. quite separately my brother stephen was called stink when we were kids.when i signed in i thought it was just going to be a codeword to get on the forum but now i'm stuck with it!
gobi the heart rate stuff is very comforting because it gives you the idea of how much better you're going for effort, in a kind of miles per gallon way. you're running much more economically and it's coming through in the race timesa lot of my training miles are now coming out about 2 mins per mile faster at lower and mid range HR than a year ago but i'm still waiting for a significant showing in race times (i.e. at higher end of HR) . i think this will only happen when i can get a flat out mile at closer to 6 mins
Back at a desk in one of our offices today - rather depressing after a relatively long break.
What: nothingWhy: still recovering from being ill over Christmas - have run gently for the last 3 days and think a day of rest is called for now.Last hard: no ideaLast rest: SaturdayLyrics: yes - two days on the trot - if I get tomorrow's it will be a PB
Ah yes, the new year starts...here in Bonnie Scotland, we also get today, 2nd Jan, as holiday, so for me it's the first 10K of the year, in my local village Lumphanan, in Aberdeenshire at 1130.
It's cold, wet and miserable, which is actually unusual for here. Might be better in the offices today folks.
Have a good year all..
here in NZ it is also another public holiday on the 2nd. some shops open but lots still shut.
sharkie - definitely sounds like a good plan to head back to london and recover. good session anyway - and i'm very jealous of you getting to train with an olympic sprinter!
what: 10k easywhy: getting some miles in, legs needed a rest after yesterday
Also back flying the desk.
What: Maybe 7 miles lateWhy: Nursing a groin strain, if I'm sensible I wont runLast Hard: But when was I ever sensible? Last Rest: 4 days
Yesterdays lyrics were: New Years Day by U2, but you all knew that anyway !
Yup official holiday up here in Scotland as Geoff has said,so house quiet all the rest still sleeping.
Today: 30-45mins steady.
All the best to those racing today and I skimmed through the rest of yesterday and believe some good Ne'er Day performances. Will read back, but well done to all concerned.
Right weight loss starts again ,officially, today, one of my 2008 resolutions peeps.
Morning, just about to scope what work I need to do for the start back next week, then I'll reward myself with a run, possibly from the gym, then it's a change of scene!
SamtheMan - Got a suggestion for you. BR used to have runners' trots problems when he first started running a lot until he cut dairy products from his diet. Maybe you could try it?
What a gloomy morning it is up here, overcast and dismal conditions.
Have a good one!
AF - Wow!
Sam - that sounds seriously frustrating, the situation with your case study. Hope you can rescue it somehow.
SGQ - sounds a good decision. Those viral things have scorpionic tendencies - the sting is often in the tail. Stay conservative in your runs.
I see Gobi's been up to things again. Shall have to check back.
Sympathies to all you who are back at your desks. I shall be heading that way myself, though the distinction is a blurry one given the nature of the job.
Me? Aborted interevals session. Wondered whether it was a good idea on the way out, legs didn't feel good, but seemed to work ok. Intended 4 half-mile ish reps with recovery one tour of the paddling pool, but got to the end of the third rep, while recovering adductor went into spasm, managed to get it out by massaging it, but my attempt to run caused it to seize again. Gave up, started walking home. Tried to jog a bit after it let go, but by then the rest of my legs were having none of it. It was cold out there. Trying to type now is interesting. Still, be generous and call it 3 miles.
Friday, all being well, shall attempt 5 miles - creep up on the distance.
