Got a day off tomorrow - what run shall I do?

Posted: Yesterday at 08:12

week off before Christmas. I use extra time to find new routes. There will always be a path you've not explored before.

Thanks for the advice, I've opted not to waste an evening at A&E and instead have done the decent thing and rested last night.
LmH - yeah I buy own brand stuff. I don't like taking any kind of medicine, but pain killers certainly work, although I'm trying to wean myself off of them. Two in the morning, two in the evening, but that may explain why I felt broken early evening yesterday. May take two at lunchtime as a precaution today.
Haven't taken this many pills since about 1989...

what - might try an easy 4-5 at lunchtime
why - ticking over
last rest - yesterday
last hard - getting out of bed
lyric - nope

LmH - not really a geek (yet) but it is quite good to know & record splits.
I don't become a slave to it, I see others include warm ups and stuff like that in there (I don't) and I rarely use it for the runs I do with the kids. No interest in the segment stuff and all that PR and kudos nonsense.
As for the present it will depend what he's into, but most of the kids I train (ages 8-10)  talk about lego, monsters and remote control things. You can get the latter quite cheaply from Argos. Not sure if batteries are compatible for Denmark though. If you want me to ask for more ideas on Thursday I can do.

what - possibly rest, possibly a trip to A&E, possibly 3-4 very slow miles
why - ribs hurt and painkillers help, may need stronger ones. Arguably it would be pointless as they will say I've damaged something, so rest. I don't usually take pills but nurofen x3 a day help numb the pain. It's only breathing that hurts and there are no bruises. Not sure easy running will help, I certainly won't be running (i.e. breathing) hard for a week or so.
last rest - possibly today, otherwise 29/10
last hard - still the top corner of that field

Nice pacing RFJ & well run Ollie, you must be looking ahead to a sub 60 at some stage?
What - easy run
why - few easy days required
last rest - 4 1/2 weeks
last hard - Saturday. Finally got round to looking at my strava splits (ooh , get me), and km splits ranged 4.01-4.19 which I'm pretty happy with for xc. 10.3km, 43.09
lyric - think so

Morning all
Good luck Ollie & RFJ and any other racers
what - 9.3 easy offroad miles with the village group. Sedate 9:30 pace which suited me as every breath was a bit sore. No bruising obvious yet.
why - wanted to get out 
last rest - 5 weeks
last hard - yesterday
lyric - yes

evening all
Thanks for the kind words yesterday. Send off was good, and a few glasses were raised.
What - Hampshire XC league race 3. Our host fixture and all seemed to go OK.
Ran around quite well until the final corner when I did an RFJ and landed ribs first. Winded me and struggled in the last 300m and breathing proving tricky now. I'll see how much bruising there is in the morning.
why - its what I do
last rest - weeks ago
last hard - top corner of that field!

Wow LMH that's cheap, so club fee only a fiver plus £13 EA
Ours is £57 including the £13 EA which as Ale has already said goes up to £14 next year.
Still cheap I think compared to other sports, plus I get 11 cross country races, 8 track and field events and 3 or 4 relay events for free too.

what - easy running with the U11s
why - easy Thursday
last rest - October
last hard - Tuesday
