Evening all

Tried some Yassos type thingies on the treadmill today:
What: TM at 2%incline - 6 x 800 + 400 recoveries @ 11kph/9kph which equates to around 8.44m/m and 11.3m/m I think. Assuming treadmill pace was accurate it felt OK and I probably could've done one more if I'd had to. Followed that with 10 mins on the bike then general upper body weights session.
Why: schedule said 8 x 200m hills and I dont like hills on a treadmill.
Last hard: Thursday
Last rest: Saturday

Starting to feel that the gym sessions including speedwork on treadmill are beginning to pay dividends.

No need to apologise for not being around Cath, we do all understand.

Hope at least you're managing to sleep a bit better.

HUGE virtual hugs.

Barbara - went for a quick swim today, just 20 lengths, very refreshing it was too. Haven't swum for several months and usually after a break like that I find it quite difficult to get into a steady rhythm. Today though it was like I've been swimming regularly for months, another sign perhaps that general overall fitness is better.

I think I'll probably try some 800's at the gym tomorrow instead of hills and some other CV stuff as well. Not going to do any additional leg exercises this week though, felt a little weakness in left knee after last week's session which fortunately has not affected my running but I don't want to push my luck.

I'm currently doing a weekly interval session on the treadmill followed by 10 minutes on a couple of other CV machines plus some weights work. I thinks it's paying off and it definitely counts as a hard day.

Not sure if I'm going to be able to keep it going though, last week did 3 x 1600m + 400m recoveries and was getting distincly bored my the end of it. Schedule says hills this week which is OK but 2.5k intervals next week; not sure I can face it!

I've got a job!

There's a map on the ,a href=''> Warminster Running Club site complete with contour lines. Looks like there's a few of longish climbs - gulp. Will definitely be doing it as a training run and saving myself for Reading the following week.

There's a major thread on here somewhere with details of all the forum runners taking part.
