Somewhat cooler today so might get the winter gear out. I'm having to find the strength to get out and run rather then sit indoors nice and warm. Had a good club session on tuesday. 4x400m, 6x800m and 4x400m all with 50m walk 50m jog recovery. a tough session and I didn't kill myself this week.
Keith - sorry to hear of your fall. might just be a pain in the arse. (sorry i couldn't resist) hope you recover quickly.
SK - when I was training for Chester I actually listened to the advice I was given by Shades and it worked a treat. I kept my weeklyv runs the same, normal runs and track sessions on Tuesdays but then on Sundays I slowed right down and ran at 8min/mile and it made a huge difference although frustrating as I like running fast.
Mamafox - absolutely fantastic report thank you...It felt like i was reading a best selling novel and i felt like i was there with you being able to smell the brandy barrels as you ran through the distilleries. Well done on your efforts.
I decided to head out for a run yesterday, despite still feeling a little under the weather and i must say i now feel a lot better as a result. I planned to run about 6 miles just to blow the cobwebs away but ended up running 8.5, which isnt a huge run but I enjoyed it.I ran a fair bit of it through Greenwich park and the autumnal colours are spectacular (although we should almost be into winter). Day off today so will head out this morning and possibly do the same route again..
SK - Im doing the paddock wood half in march. It's a great race fairly flat but really enjoyable...
I had hoped I had got over this lurgy but it looks like it is still hanging around. I'm itching to get on with training but want to get 100% before pushing forward..
