DK - yes I am the advocate of rest days but that's for those doing much bigger training loads than the proposed consecutve day training schedules.   if you look at the Likeys plan - it's a minimum of 2 miles or 20mins running a day - for someone who's IM training, that's a warmup!!  similar goes for the 5k for 30 days.   and the 30 or 50 day plans are for out of season training i.e. this time of year and into winter as they'll help get someones base back up to scratch if they've been idle.

30 of 30 in 30 challenge.
Day 4 done. - speed is going down slowly, but I blame the traffic / road crossing etc instead of running in the forrest

as per Gladys, I'm just getting back into running after a 4 month layoff.
Rehab person also suggested lots of small sessions concentrating on form.....
Its also a great confidence booster - I can still run

Day 5 and 6 runs done

Knee is a little swollen, no pain though.
That could have been the 2.5 hr ride with intervals yestarday though?

I think I'm going to give this one a miss!!

The knee's had a bit of a tough summer. I felled off my mountain bike again 2 weeks before the Great Scottish Run!!     It was not happy during the race on Sunday (still managed a PB though by 25 seconds  )!! So I'm taking the rest of September off running!

Gentle cycling and swimming only allowed!

This week has been hit and miss, especially with work.

Last night I twisted my ankle during some intervals. For that reason, I'm out.

Same here! Well done on the PB.

Good stuff Little Sis on PB,  sorry to hear you and Cat are partners in hopping though

I'm still playing my version of this,  started on Monday & 5 run sessions done in 4 days,  mix of recovery, tempo & intervals in there with longest session being 45 mins.

5 hungover miles in Newcastle for me today. its a piece of pie running on the flat along a towpath innit, even with a sore head

Fabulous idea...though it pains me to say it most mornings!

I've had a decadent/lazy two months since Outlaw, most intense sessions have been commute cycling, dancing (aka festivals) and a novice rowing regatta so I need some structure.

Going well so far...

5k, 10k (race), 5k, 5k, 15k, 5k and aiming for 10k tonight. Little bit cross (read 'overly competitive') that Gladys is now a week in whereas I bailed this morning and went for coffee instead - but I've only myself to blame !

30 of 30 in 30 challenge.
Run 7 done on day 7 

calves are feeling it.....
Sunday may be a challenge as I am off on the Southern Sportive, so maybe I'll have to double up on a subsequent day......

I can't possibly think!

Run this am done. It felt harder today as I was tired and stiff after a load of travel and drinking and late night, but looking at pace vs HR it was no worse than other recent runs. No better, mind! 

I am looking forward to a lie in tomorrow, and a nice run at a sensible time. 

Run tonight GP and you'll be back in the game!

realised I had a rest day on wednesday so didn't missed one.......did a long one today...can i call that payback 

07/09/2012 at 17:30

My rules say no payback, only pay forward!

(but I'll let you off this once, coz you're Welsh and I don't like to be seen oppressing the less fortunate of this world!! )

(I'm joking before you burn my holiday cottage!!!)

I've done the first 7 days, but I only did 2.5 miles one day - will you let me off too Gladys?

If not it doesn't matter as I'll flounce off and just concentrate on the bigger picture of the Likey's challenge

Jj - I'm a fat old cripple and I'm doing it, so c'mon

07/09/2012 at 17:53

I reckon you could round that up to 3 miles debbo, which is near as dammit 5km!

I have been for a run - does that count? Not today though, and it wasn't 5k.

09/09/2012 at 11:35

That would be a no then Meface!  You will just have to do it properly in Orsum October

I however, remain awesome and sensible. Managed 5km running loops at Datchet after a swimble this morning, and jolly fine it was too!

got my run in again today.ran home from church......

realisd that although i didn't run on wednesday I walked over 3 miles so that is good enough

09/09/2012 at 18:52

You've already had permission earlier, Seren! Quit whilst you are ahead! 

So, did you wear your running kit under your sunday best, or turn up to church in lycra?! 

I suspect your walking might be faster than my running at the moment though...
