    Last hard day: ages ago
    Last easy: enforced rest yesterday
    Well done everyone, as always, inspirational

  • What: 2 mile jog, 4 miles hard, 2 miles jog - except that when i arrived home and checked what i'd done on the map, i'd done about 4.5 miles hard.
    Why - it's Tuesday! it was foggy and not raining for a change.
    Last easy day - yesterday went 8 miles over the muddy fields very gently.
    Last hard day - does a long run of 13 miles on Sunday count as hard?

  • Yes, Dangly, 13 miles DOES count as hard. And, for your information, so does 8 miles through mud!

    I shall console myself by thinking of how much fitter than Rik Waller I am.
  • Oops - was reminded by my muscles today that a 10K race (Brighton on Sunday) isn't just another 6.2 mile training run.

    had planned on doing 3 x 2 miles but ended up with -

    What: 2 mile warm-up, then 1 x 2 miles @ 10K pace, then 2 x 1 mile @ 10K pace, then 2 miles warm-down.
    Why: lack of consideration for my ageing musculo-skeletal system.

  • Just have to say, ooh, I enjoyed that. 20 mins worth of hill reps and another 40 mins running with bursts of speed because once again intimidated thinking I was being followed. Am I paranoid, or is someone playing cat and mouse with me when I run. Wish I had a running partner. But who else wants to run at 9pm at night!!

    PM - 8 miles - incluiding 5 miles fartlek
    Why: Speedwork
    Last hard run: Today
    Last easy day: Yesterday

    Saw Paula Radcliffe whilst on my run tonight, which gave me an incentive to run a bit faster :o)

  • Nasty evening with unpleasant chilly damp SE wind. Most of the group in pieces having raced at Abergele (apparently the course included a 600ft climb amongst its many undulations). So most of them did a steady run while I got despatched on a 5 mile (maybe a fraction more) tempo run. No-one to run with either...ho hum. Got round in ~32 mins. Not as fast as I'd have liked, but one 3/4 mile stretch of road was dark & unfamiliar - stumbled over the kerbs & pavements. Oh well.....
