Yep, they've already lost your goodwill which is a rubbish way to operate and get the best from people.

XC for me again tomorrow. Another Birmingham league hammering, plodding in at the back of the field! All good training though.

Dr Dan, I was looking at that 10k schedule from the book. I quite fancy having a go at that at some point. I think if you tagged a few miles onto the long runs it would serve pretty well as a half schedule as well. Every run looks like it wants to hurt you which for a one off cycle might be a good thing.

Nah, it's a 16 week schedule but will need 4 weeks out and the time out in January is a clear 10 days of no exercise so that will provide an opportunity to reset and start again. 

my workplace takes a more rounded approach to things. I took a 90 minute lunch today and did 10 miles. Tonight I'm hangingaround until 6 to them attend a drinks function until 8. If someone told me I couldn't take 30 minutes extra for lunch in the circumstances, then my goodwill would face away and if be leaving at 5 to do it instead if the function. 

That's some streak, Alehouse.

I've got a decent chunk of races entered next year. 

I was considering a parkrun on nye. Just depends on weather and what I'm squeezing in the days before it. 

Overdone it?

I wouldn't take Tommys advice as being that of the man on the Clapham omnibus when it comes to crazy racing, however I would go for it if the temp lifts a few c. 

I didn't see the reps as unusually fast. They are designed to be vomit inducing intervals, which they didn't quite do. 

So are you doing this half Sunday, Pete? 

That is good going, Lou. I'm not sure on the status of ours. There are various packages around the house all wrapped up. I'm not allowed to wrap as I'm so bad at it.

10 mile trot at lunchtime, which despite having a nasty little hangover, was quite pleasant. Still no hrm so my post run analysis is rather boring.

I have a table in my book that tells me what pace to run every session.

Everytime I leave the house and come home there's a bit more of Christmas in place. I withstood some intense nagging on the weekend regarding trimming up and my refusal until 01 December. 

I did my first intervals in months tonight. 3 x 1 mile off 400m. Target was 5.41 and came out 5.38, 5.42 and 5.40. Effort level felt about right for type of session though there's now a deep ache in my hamstrings, which clearly weren't too pleased.

Well done on the continued streak and years mileage , Alehouse.

Andrew, I think that's a reasonable target for you to chase down. Sometimes you just have to manipulate other parts of your day to get the runs in. I shall be taking slightly long lubches twice this week to do an interval session and a 10 miler. They'll get the time back though.

Well done on the long runs, WP. 

Still going well, Dr Dan.

Today is day 1 of London sch. Started a bit early to accommodate a 10-14 day recovery period end of January for a minor op.

I do tend to agree with Skinny on the Santa dash.

My schedule is 16 weeks but does not contain recovery weeks. Also it won't be possible for me to train fully over Xmas, I'm having my minor op in January that was cancelled in August which will be 10-14 days of little running and I have a long weekend in Edinburgh end of February so instead of cramming a weeks training into 4 days I will just have a light week.

The strap has been slowly deteriorating for a few weeks now. As I went to put it on it just snapped apart. New one is in transit, however if things get desperate I can borrow my wifes polar strap. I found my long run somewhat meaningless on Friday without the statistical feast that would usually follow!

Well done on your long run and mileage total, Pete.

That's some fairly mental racing, Tommy. 

Hope today's racing went well for everyone?

I've ticked along pretty well this week. The only significant point to note was my heart rate monitor strap snapped Friday evening. I am awaiting delivery of a new one, until which point my run feedback will be far less exciting.

My London schedule begins tomorrow which is slightly exciting. 

If we are counting santa runs on ttt, I didnt receive a prize for my win, however as it was the one and only running of the event, by default I have a course record!

I relied on the cheap, plastic and ineffective belt that comes with it.

well done Muddy and Lit. I too have experienced the glory of winning a Santa dash . The problem with Santa costumes is they are designed for bigger people. 

That was lucky 're keys, Muddy. What I often do in races without bag drops is leave my keys hidden in my car. 

Back from a family weekend away so no running. Back on it tomorrow. Marathon schedule starts a week tomorrow.
