  • Phew!! Just back from my club night, got put in with the fastest lads, we did Thursdays hilly course backwards with an extra 3/4 mile thrown in for good measure...

    Didn't notice how many down hill sections there were on Thursday, but I'll definitely remember them backwards!!

    7:15 minute miles was pretty tough for me as well, how some of them lads can have a natter at that speed running up hill is beyond me! image
  • Ale - there is also a good book by Lopez Lomong Running for my life - is a good read and one of the missing boys from Sudan area fro the civil war and how he sees Michael Johnson running in the Olympics on a TV in farm house when in refugee camp and says he wants to do the same......BTW love the books and wine together....

    Dustin - You have a message waiting for you, likewise he was in our pics...

    What - 6.14m with 4 x 5 mins (.80m, .80m, .81m, .81m) with 60 sec rec.
    Why - Last hard session before Gosport 1/2 on Sunday
    Last hard - Today
    Last Rest - On the massage table earlier... BLISS with the odd yelp

    Take care

  • Another good session, RFJ! Going well! Will add your book to the list tomorrow: sounds good.



    Sweep: good session too. I'm sure in another six months you will be talking on the hills as well...and I don't mean the downhill.
    Cheers

    I also recommend highly "The Cutting Edge Runner" by Matt Fitzgerald. However for some reason not many people rate it that highly - but what do I know!
  • Club night was a blast - 8 x 400m stretches run hard up and down the road. Feeling a bit heavy legged on the warm up so decided to not to hammer it. Thing is when you're surrounded by runners your natural instincts take over.....easy day tomorrow.
  • Oh and "Better Training For Distance Runners" by Martin and Coe. This is quite a demanding read, on a par with Noakes' "Lore of Running", and in a different league to P&D's lightweight Jack Daniels rip off effort image
  • Straycelt: As it appears that you haven’t strayed THAT far from Dragon country, let me know what you are seeking and I’ll keep an eye out. I’m in Gloucester. There’s usually a 20 miler in January, along with a 10 miler and a marathon (I’m in for that) on 20th January.

    LMH: I presume that Fatman to Ironman, and Going Long are already in the library?

    Monday, shredded legs
    Tuesday, just feeling fat.
