    Unfortunately the weather has been too hot in Florida over the past two weeks to do much training. Couldn't even find an internet cafe, until tonight!

    But feel very rested and cant wait to get back to start training again.

    Last rest: Fri, another rest day tomorrow definitely.
  • Sounds like a decent sesh to me Laura...

    Trotted round for just under 4 miles at about 6:50 per mile pace. Legs felt like they were moving quite quickly - but they weren't! - slightly alarming.
  • what i'd give to run 6m50 miles Mike. Don't knock it. I bust a gut earlier to run 8m05s over 4.5 miles. Still, i did it 2 and a half mins quicker than last week so can't complain eh?

    Interval training on treadmill tomorrow. Can't wait!!
  • Dave yes it is - tried both at once, but got sent off the course (we had been drinking - the shame)
  • Godzilla - I'm trying a seasonal approach, given up golf until the Spring now. Reason? Golf recovers quickly after a long lay-off, but I think the running would be hard work after a few months off!
