Club night last night : 12x400m (approx) on grass, 100m slow recovery. Ran wel but think I may have tweaked a hammy, felt a bit tender on the cool down, and still stiff this morning. Therefore, easy jogging today to see if its just an age thing!
Won't be around on the forums for a few days so if you're racing this weekend, good luck!!!

I'm not around much at the moment - busy working (kind of - one day I'll get paid!)

  • What: a run? a bike? we'll see....
  • Why: swim pool closed week (I did promise I was going to go to the gym but...

Haven't read yesterday's thread yet - but that swim from two (more?) days ago sounds nice, NZC (except the kayak bit - that's more trinni)

Have fun all

back to work today, but really quiet on the roads as schools and government still closed.

What: 10K included 2K warm up, 5 x 1K @ 4-12 min/K  off 90 sec recoveries, 2K warm down.
Why: Having been on holday for 5 days and thus training harder then usual I canned the sixth 1K
Last Hard: Today, really didn't feel like doing speedwork it was the triumph of mind over matter
Last Rest: 9.11.08

I noticed that yestedays run which was on the same route and the same distance as my first "long run" back from illness 4 weeks ago was run at a average speed of 12.8 KPH and Average HR of 138 BPM against 11.3 KPH and 153 BPM 4 weeks ago, Now I feel better!

TmR: Whilst I hope to run for years to come, I certainly don't assume that there will be a next marathon anymore, far too many injuries, illnesses and health scares over the past two years to feel anything but very mortal.

Have a great day

Good morning all.

What: 7.1 miles slippy slidy on the ice
Why: wednesday and I'm working at home
Last hard: if I'm honest not much recently
Last rest: sunday

Pleased with that.  Same route as last wednesday.  12 secs/mile better pace, with HR 5 bpm lower. Gorgeous day out there, although some of the lane and pavements were a bit treacherous.

Shower and food time then back to work...

Morning all,

In UK for a few days to include surprise for my two older daughters tonight and sign up a UK distributor for the book. Damn it's cold!

What easy 3 miles later
Why very easy on the tendons
Last hard ages

Have a great day

Morning all,

I did nothing yesterday after all - despite feeling twitchy on the days when I don't train, I am also receiving messages from my body that a) it is not ready for anything consistent yet and b) it does not want to get in a swimming pool! Isn't it a woman's prerogative to change her mind?! I'm also commuting 65 miles each way most days at the moment, which cuts into the day a bit. 

Have a good trip Trini! Will you post the link to your book again?

What: turbo session with harder bits
Why: trying to encourage myself to get moving again, so I don't get fat!
Last hard: 23 Nov
Last rest: most of the last 2.5 weeks really

Good runnings all.

10/12/2008 at 13:33
Hello Trin, you are right about the weather.

What: 20 miles started at 4.45(Gobi o Clock is back) d&d
3 miles + drills at lunchtime d&d
3-5 miles PM
Why: circuits cancelled so an extra short run
Last hard: mentally this morning physically the weekend
Last rest: Friday 5th December

I think I may know the lyrics

Reading back to yesterday.

NZC/AF, maybe the fact I can run on IS the problem
TT, just how I feel
Marmite, I set standards and this year I failed to achieve them therefore I cocked up :~)

Dustin - Hope the hammy is alright, take care

What: 5.76 miles
Why: Easy run
Last Hard: Last night at the club

Surprisingly the pavements round my neighbourhood were ok, headed out towars the river the path alongside river was icy about 1½ miles into run thought it was only one or two patches but No. Decided to go back and try another path this was better

10/12/2008 at 13:50
Afternoon folks.

4.45? Mad.....

Just back from an easy 5.4 miles (41mins-odd) in lovely conditions, then it's supposed to be a track session with the club tonight. Might need to re-assess things if the track is icy/frozen, but in the meantime the plan is to run a 10k parlauf. Just need to play it by ear.

Have a great day.
10/12/2008 at 13:55
LOL Scobos, this is a lie in when it goes out to 25 miles I start at 4.15 :~)

4:45 - walking to the station - someone needs to oil the wheels of international capitalism....;-)

Whats wrong with 0445? In the summer we start at 0400!

As for oiling the wheels of international capitalism, I kinda thought they had fallen off??

Yesterdays lyrics were Massachusetts the Bee Gees. You need to be old to remember that one.

Trini: I don't intend to find out how cold the Uk is, 11C here yesterday morning was quite cold enough for me.

10/12/2008 at 14:39
Gobi - so you 6min/mile the first 5 miles of your 25? ;o)

4.45 - sound asleep. Or lying awake wondering how the hell Gobi does it.
10/12/2008 at 14:41
Nah just finish later :~)

Set alarm get sorry arse out of bed, when not in mood remember which races I have coming up.

DD, sure 4am is nicer for you than it is for me with the UK weather.
10/12/2008 at 14:41


dustin have you had your ou result??

I passed, grade 3, not  great but  a pass!!! I am so happy.

what:  short plod and swim later

why: I want to

last hard: last night 5 k race around the new cycle track, very hard

last easy: 30/11

10/12/2008 at 14:54

woohoo Wabo, well done on passing.  Is that the end of OU for you or do you have more next year?

10/12/2008 at 15:29

Great work Wabo!!!

Just checked, passed my final year (another distinction!!). Proud owner of a degree now and I think the full title is BSc (Honours) in Social Sciences with Geography and Economics (First Class Honours).
If the wheels have fallen off the capitalist wagon, I guess I'll start teaching training in the new year after all.......
