Hello.

What: 6 miles hard.
Why: Scheduled.
Last Rest: Sunday.

Rob,
is this the Concept 2 rower that you're referring to? If so, DAMN! I usually get through 3K in ~15 min and feel like I've been going at it in a fairly serious way!

What: Gym session (bike, weights, row)
Why: Midweek X-train
Last hard run: Last night
Last rest day: Monday

Felt a bit flat at the club session last night, probably residual fatigue from Sunday's long run. Gym session this morning was OK though so hopefully I'll be 100% for tomorrows tempo run.

Have a good one ;-)

Morning all! Feel quite refreshed today after being sensible yesterday, listened to my body and had an easy day - 2mi very easy jog to yoga class and 2mi walk home after. Today: steady run, 5-8mi depending on what running partners are up for
Why: easing back into schedule
Last hard: Sun
26/02/2003 at 09:16
Indoor rowing? Aaaargh! I hate the Concept 2 with a passion, probably because the ones in my gym don't face the television.

What: Short sharp fartlek run in the afternoon. BodyPump and a swim in the evening.
Why: Schedules.
Last rest day: Monday.
Last hard day: Sunday.

Good Morning Folks,

looks as though it'll warm up quite nicely by the time of my run. Feeling a bit tired after the club session last night and my ankle feels a little tender so I'm just going to take it nice and easy out on my run.

What : Usual 7miles
Why : Well really theres not that many traffic free routes in the middle of Central London other than this.

Last Rest Day : Monday
Last Hard Day : Last Night 4 sets of 1k + recovery and .5k + recovery. What a grind, I lost about 17 secs over the k from the first to the last (why did I put them? Hmmm maybe they're behind the sofa)

Have a good one.
26/02/2003 at 10:10
What: 10 'ish miles with 5 at MP
Why: Enforced rest on Thursday due to work commitments means I can do a bit more than I usually do on an easy day
Last rest day: 2 weeks
Last hard day: yesterday
26/02/2003 at 10:21
morning all

what: probably nothing
why: throat still doesn't feel q right notwithstanding yesterday's easy trot.
With coach's recommendation (can't quite call it an order) to avoid effort sessions for ~ a fortnight in mind, don't feel under pressure to get out there & do something like I usually would in this situation.

Could really do with getting the last vestiges of this bug out of my system once & for all.
26/02/2003 at 10:23
Gary - we, your inspirations, dictate that you shall run 15 miles of 200m intervals (200 on, 50 off). And then do the 15 miles home at 1/2M pace. Cross-country.

Oh, and, er, where are my manners? Good morning, all.

What: Rest.
Why: Three days in a row is too many.
Hard: Club yesterday.
Rest: Sunday.

Enjoy!
26/02/2003 at 10:26
Parky - where do you run in Central London that makes a nice 7 mile route?

What: Probably an easy 4 miles.
Why: Did a 5 mile tempo run on Monday, which was an increase in distance for this run for me, and my right shin just above the inner ankle bone has been a bit sore since, as has my calf on the same leg. So no overdoing it for me tonight!
Last hard: Monday.
Last rest: Yesterday.

Gary, get out there and run. You know you want to!
26/02/2003 at 10:29
Morning everyone,

what: 13 mile tempo run
why: because the schedule says so
last hard: Monday

Yikes - was supposed to do 8m yesterday but everything hurt so much (still) after sunday's run (2 laps richmond park) that I only managed 6. Still, I've iced and ibuprofened just in case and knees/quads seem back to normal.

So.....

Today: 3M (will make it up to 5K)
Why so little: In my schedule - this week is my second biggest planned and I've got a 18M at the weekend
Last Hard: yesterday
Last Rest: Monday

Minkin - as to runs in London have a look here
26/02/2003 at 10:35
Minkin,

basically I run along the side of the Thames and St. Katherine's Dock. Basically I pretty much stick to the route shown on the serpentine website.

If I worked nearer any of the parks I'd be there but alas this is the only route I know thats sort of traffic free (if not tourist free!)
26/02/2003 at 10:52
morning folks -

what: 9.5M recovery run at a sloooooow pace
why: recovering from yesterday's 10K variable pace breakfast revisiter at which I almost got reacquainted with my Weetabix
last hard day: have a guess?!
last rest: Monday (work enforced, drat it!)

run well, everyone.
