Great 2 hour run last night, absolutely knackered when I got back but the satisfaction of doing it and keeping up with the others was amazing, knees are a bit stiff this morning, so will probably have rest day today.

Morning all - alas the weather is back to normal. Wet and foggy!

Why: No running today - I'm not playing catch up this week. I've managed to keep to my schedule - first time for ages.

Last hard: Great hill sessions yesterday
Last Rest: Saturday

Absolutely chucking it down in Sheffield today! Excellent as I love running in the rain, specially when it's really cold as well. Can't wait for the snow & hail.

What: AM - nothing (too soon after last night's tempo session which included 5k in 18:30), PM - 10 miles steady pace
Why: Mid week longish run
Last hard day: yesterday
Last rest day: Friday
13/11/2002 at 09:31
what: nothing again
why: life intervenes with training
last hard day: sun
last rest: tues

hopefully 2 consecutive days rest will help the injury niggles. Good test for the week off I plan early december....

Morning all!

Mmm, bit grey here, only just getting light and fresh snow on the ground (about 2 mm which means slippy slidey running!)

What - 6 miles easy, maybe a swim later if I get all my work done.
Why - midweek recovery run after 3 full-on training days

Last hard day -yesterday - 5 x 4min efforts with 3 min recoveries during a 8.5 mile circuit. Despite the jogs in between each session, did a pb for that circuit of 1hr.02 mins (doesn't sound that fast but there's a killer hill at the start and it's nearly all off road and v. wet and slippery). Next goal - under an hour for that circuit!
Last rest day - Saturday.

The rain's stopped in Leicester at the moment, so I'll be heading out in the next hour or so for a recovery run.

This was going to be the first day of HR training today, but the damn thing's turned up minus instructions (bought it through e-bay - doh!)

If anyone's got any idea how to make a Cardiosport Autozone work, answers on a postcard please.

What: Swim
Why : recovery from hill reps.
Last hard : Yesterday.
Last easy : Monday.

Siling it down in Huddersfield - should help to mitigate the consequences of the Fire Service strike.

What: nothing for me today, taking an extra day or 2 off this week prior to the Worksop 1/2M on Sunday.
Why: because I like to be well rested before I race.
Last hard run: Last night
Last rest day: today.

Mike S,
sorry to hear about one of your running club members hurting herself. Sounds like you had an excellent session. You'll definitely find that recovery from the club runs improves with time, although I always make the day after an easy one.

Morning all

Raced the club handicap last night – about 6mile – and took over 2 mins off my PB but only managed 2nd place – average HR was almost 94% MHR (it hurt) - actually do my post race analysis I ran a good race, maintaining a steady HR throughout only deviating from 91% to 96%

What : Spinning session at lunch time
Why : Have to improve my cycling for next years TRI season

Last hard Day: Yesterday (see above)
Last Rest Day : Sunday

Hi all.

What: Weights this evening. Maybe a bit of swimming or stepping if I can fit it in before the gym closes.
Why: It's Wednesday.
Last rest day: Yesterday. And Monday. I love my job, but sometimes it interferes SO much with my life!
Last hard day: Sunday.
13/11/2002 at 11:33
Phew! You lot make my hard sessions seem like a walk in the park!

What: 2.5-3.5 miles recovery.
Why: 5-mile tempo run last night. This was two laps of my 2.5 mile circuit, which includes a nice downhill section to start, a steep uphill ascent mid-way, another short downhill section then the remainder a steady but gentler uphill. Ran the first 2.5 miles in 16:09 but took 21 minutes to do the second circuit. Kind of negative splits in reverse! I guess it wasn't really a tempo run as I should have started slower, built up to near-10K target race pace for the middle 3 miles, then decelerated for the last mile. Oh, well.
Last hard: Yesterday.
Last rest: Monday.

'fess up time : didn't do last night intervals as was too busy during the day and was shagged out by the time I got home.

So to today,glorious sunshine after yesterdays constant downpours.

What : 2.3 mile warmup on muddy fields, 8*300m fast with 150m jog recovs (or 12 laps of a sodden footy pitch),2.2 mile jog home.
Very wet underfoot,plenty of surface water and streams with burst banks.
Why: continued off road training,my legs certainly notice the difference!
Last Rest : yesterday
Last Hard : Sunday
