Can't find the old thread so thought I'd start a  new one for the new year.

What: ran/walked 10 miles (Tadworth 10)
When: this morning
Why: marathon training has to start somewhere

Did a couple of 6 mile runs in Oct/Nov but apart from that, the few runs that I've done have  been no longer than 4 miles since Roth.  So, I was pleased to complete this with a negative split and feeling pretty good thanks to some very controlled pacing and a run/walk approach.  Already feeling pretty sore though. 

And my Skins seem to have shrunk

Hiya Wolfy <waves>
Bad news about your sprained ankle but good news that it's nothing worse.

Went blood doning yesterday so I don't know what possessed me to think it was a good idea to run down to the pool, swim and then run home again. I always need a few days to re-energise after blood doning.

I blame East v West

Today I have mostly done nothing

Tomorrow is pilates and hopefully a better swim than yesterday

Pilates done and a reasonable 200m winterswim time recorded.

Flippin' knackered now though

The dogs'll love that then Wolfy.  Glad to see the ankle's on the mend but what happened to 'no running for a week to10 days'?

This week's long stuff

What: long swim - 1.2k, long run - 17k, long bike - err 16k!!!
When: over the last week.
Why: base training starts here!

swim to increase 200m a week 3 weeks out of 4
run to increase 10 mins a week, 3/4
bike - must start some long bikes!!!

If I write it enough times, then I might get out there on my bike

Continued going to training (obedience) with one of my dogs till she was 10 cos she enjoyed it - after that she seemed to lose interest a bit.  #2 dog decided it was all a bit beneath him when he was about 4 - I used up more energy trying to get him moving than he did when he finally deigned to get up! 

Dangerous on the road bike at the moment OC - lots of black ice around this morning and I was on foot!

Yay Meldy!

Suffered a 7.75 mile 'run' this morning and couldn't have gone any further or faster if I'd tried.  Lingering effects of blood letting.

So Wolfy, how's the ankle mending?

XC league event for me today. Bit of a misnomer really - more of an off road run. Tow path and grass with a few really muddy patches and flatter than a pancake. 

Long (relatively) run planned for tomorrow, possibly followed by a swim.

Rubbish run - bailed out at 5.75 miles - followed by an ok swim

Next on the agenda - tax return
