This week as been quite tough already. 12 miles off road Sunday, 9 miles off road Monday and 8 miles tempo pace on hills last night. Therefore today is going to be a gentle 1250m of front crawl at the local swimming pool.

What: 8 mile hill run
Why: need to keep mileage up mid week as won't run this weekened as partying.

Was going to run 12 but was chased by a cow thing 2 dogs and finally a sheep so guessed god wanted me to call it a day.

Oh haven't posted my sessions for ages. In fact haven't done a session for a week and a half, oops, slapped wrist.


Tonight (a must): 5 mile tempo run
Why: Prep for Sundays 5 miler

Last hard day (and run): Sunday the 20th!
Last rest day: All of the days since! :)

Ok so you lot have to hold me to this as I've been naughty lately skipping training.

What: Easy 4/5 miler (weather is too pants to go out on my bike and I haven't sorted out a gym membership for the winter yet).

know the feeling MM - now!

Going to gym tonight to do rowing workout, apparently its a good cardiovascular workout, but is easy on the old knees.

Pernickity, when my grandchildren had Chicken Pox my daughter got something from the chemist I think it was called Piriton, it relieves the itching, it also sent them to sleep, not sure what age group can take it.

Forgive me runners, it has been 15 days since my last posting.

What: 5 miles steady
Why: easing back after an extended post half marathon break (one week turned into two).

Caz, compared with me you have been devoted to your training!
30/10/2002 at 15:48
David, perhaps we should say a few hail marys (however that's spelt! :) ).
30/10/2002 at 15:49
Forgive me forumites for I have slacked etc. :)
30/10/2002 at 16:38
David - Caz, Actually if you post on the training forum even when you're not running then it should make you feel guilty enough to get out there!
30/10/2002 at 16:39
What: one hours tennis lesson
Why: because my coach says that I cannot move up with all my chums unless i pull my socks up and heckling at the back during lessons will no longer be tolerated
