Morning all - extremely cold here in Germany this morning, minus 13.5 degrees as I got in my car. Would anyone like to have a debate regarding global warming?

Yesterdays cross training was a hard indoor biking session (30 minutes on level 7 of 10 covering 15.5 kilometres) plus some rowing and sit ups, consequently I'm feeling a little wiped out. So.......

Today: Possibly rest
Why: Feeling a bit wiped out plus knee a bit sore - don't want to overstress it.
Last rest: 30 Dec
Last Hard: N/A

Isn't your temperature affected by being up in the hills?
10 degrees warmer here, which is still pretty unpleasant. At least the wind seems to be light & fairly dry - no extra ice forming.

what: 40 minute plod
why: as per schedule - recovery from last night

last hard(ish) day: Tue
last rest day: Mon
last long day: Sun

Seem to have two of these threads going today - have I posted on the wrong one?

Mike - Its about 5 degrees colder where I live than in Frankfurt! That means is bloody freezing in winter but pleasant in the summer.

I'll keep going here

B@#*&£r, was hoping my left knee was repairing when I succeeded in pulling left calf muscle at club session last night, after warm-up & stretches and just as we were about to start the hard session. Walked home limping. Any new left legs for sale - sfh variety to match the other. Probably a consequence of Xtraining not working the calves - past experience is 4/5 days recovery.

what: rest
why: enforced see above
last hard day: sun?
last rest: sat

Good training all speedy marathoners in making

Matin H - I think you've got our weather. Can we have it back please as we can't open our ski slopes.

Two degrees here, sunny and warming up.

What: 45 mins steady, and a swim
Why: Feeling a bit better today - managed to eat my first 'proper' meal since 30 December last night!
Last proper hard day: Ages ago
Last rest: Friday (though I'm not sure if 24 hours of trvelling counts as 'rest'

Sorry to heat about inuries, sfhlegs and paul l- hope they're not too bad.

08/01/2003 at 10:29

What: Club speedwork session (either 600's or a pyramid session, I expect)

Rest as above
08/01/2003 at 10:56

Morning all, -3 here in Inverness at the moment and snowing again. You want this weather Lizzie, come and get it.

What: 8 miles steady
Why: Mid week long run

Last hard: Yesterday
Last rest: Monday
08/01/2003 at 11:30
Glad you're feeling better Lizzie, and commiserations on injuries Paul and sfh legs.

Why can't we get some snow?? And what time do you get up to run some of you?
Set my alarm for 6.45, switched it off again and went back to sleep.

What: 7 miles easy.
Why: supposed to be marathon pace session but gave up after 15 mins as I couldn't get my heart rate above 70% despite having a rest day yesterday. So settled for enjoying the morning which was beautiful. Lost in my reveries going downhill I slipped on the ice and nearly fell on my a**e; serves me right for being snooty about treadmills. :)
Will try again Sun, as this is supposed to be one of the key weekly sessions.
Last hard: mon intervals.
Last rest: yesterday.
08/01/2003 at 11:31
morning all

08/01/2003 at 11:42
How do.

What: Rest. Or might do a very brief leg-stretcher.
Why: Club race Sunday, which means my last pre-race 'quality' (ha!) sesh will be tomorrow. And it was club night last night.
Rest: Monday.
Hard: Saturday long one. Would say the club night, but to be honest, it wasn't too tough. (I'm well 'ard, me!)

Good luck staying upright, people.

08/01/2003 at 13:16
