Dachs I don't doubt your running character so you are not it's a wise decision.  I don't know what your training is like but maybe some rest Is needed?

if it wasnt for my coach sitting my weekly schedules i would be more like Simon...only with a much better watch

when it gets too sciencecy im always reminded how easier running was when i was a kid and was faster than i am now.  i didnt have hr zones to hit or must eat this and that..i just ran...and often it was fast. we can get a little too lost up our own hoops by not working hard enough because the latest fad says so.  ultimately to be a fast runner you will need sessions that are fast.

scott - i just run the sessions my coach gives me.  normally its based on time.  such as 60mins with 1 first mile warm up the rest at 6.25 pace with a half mile cool down.  i think he is getting me used to sustained running.  but there are xc sessions like 8* 4mins so it doesnt matter about the conditions i just work at the right effort.

good racing pete, bus, ag.  but medals are medals so kudos go to Simon and his gold.

XC race for me, shit course, shit weather, shit performance.   i knew i was tired going into to it but the team needed me to get round to make sure we win team gold at the end of the series.  on the last lap im motoring catching and passing people but then go all bambi and slip, head over tits, wiping out a fellow team mate in the process.  i get up, stop swearing after a while and then start the chase again. 

after half a mile or so im back on his shoulder and realise we have gone the wrong way.  looks like a marshall had left his post to treat a injured runner (fair enough) but a small group of us went the wrong way adding on just under half a mile extra.  so we turn back onto the correct course and i come in behind people i passed ages ago.  so results are all up in the air as it doesnt sound like we were the only ones to go wrong.

maybe the reason you are always in pain is because you never recover from injuries....always racing on them and they never get better?

you cant even walk without pain when you started this thread today so running an extreme distance is pointless...why not recover properly and go again another time

in this instance DNS shows you are smart and DNF shows you are not

though others might read it as DNS = wimp & DNF = heroic attempt
