Over 60s training.

Columba - The writing is known as tachygraphy, a form of shorthand used by the Romans about the time of Christ. Apparently there were about as many different versions of shorthand as there were languages around 2000BC. I wrote this example, copying characters from some old Roman script but I have no idea what it says, even if it is anything of  meaning, and I shudder to think.

TS - I wasn't lurking I was eating Sunday lunch, and there wasn't much of a gap between those posts anyway.

Chris - What's complicated about a 3:1 ratio, that's 3min45sec:1min15sec? I tried 2min:30sec but it doesn't give enough time to get into a rythm, you're always changing over. Until I tried the change this morning, on the fly I might add, I had been doing 4min:1min which was fine. The only reason I changed was to see if it made much difference but it didn't.

Ceal - I couldn't guarantee starting and finishing on a run and in any case starting with a walk gives a bit of a warm up.

Busbar - nice to hear from you again, sorry I omitted to mention it earlier.

R/W; changed the ratio halfway. I decided to see what it would be like doing 3:1 instead of 4:1 so I upped the W to 1:15 and dropped the R to 3:45 thus maintaining 5min splits(?). It doesn't really seem to have made a lot of difference but I suppose I need to do it for the whole run for it to be significant.

Pammie - the other thing is that I haven't done much painting recently as I've been engaged for some months on preparing illustrations for a book a friend of mine is publishing about a magic computer that sucks them in and they have all kinds of adventures. I can't tell you the story obviously but the link below takes you to my Flickr website that shows all the illustrations - slightly different from my normal work.

Columba - He's not my little man he works against me as well.

Pammie - sorry I don't know how many, as I've never counted, but I do like to paint them.

Chris - I've used r/w on all my recent runs 4:1min and I always start with a walk as I find it's easier to follow when you change from run to walk at 5min. I do minutes because I find shorter stretches too demanding to concentrate on. I tried halving it once but didn't like it.

R/W. I am sort of pleased with that, all mile splits under 13:25 and one even under 12. Looking at the recent times for this run, apart from one that somehow went under 13 back in March, there's nothing to touch it since last July and things were different back then.
