    What: Ponder a dilemma.
    Why: It's club night at 6-30 and work Crimbo dinner on the table at 7-30. I reeealy want to run. Should I
    (a) run for a bit then head off,
    (b) stuff the tedious old dinner and run the full sesh, or
    (c) get pissed, go to the dinner, eat lots, get more pissed, and see a psychiatrist about curing my running obsession tomorrow?
    Only you lot will understand why I'm tending towards (a) and (b). :-)

    Last hard: Saturday 13M.
    Last rest: Sunday.

  • my schedule.. it says..

    30 mins at lvel R ( 150 bts perminute) followed by 30 mins stretching and some imagery....
    quite an easy night then...
  • MinksMinks ✭✭✭
    Swerve - It depends. If I thought the dinner was going to be v. tedious and there was nothing to be gained by being there I'd probably bin it and run instead. If it was a case of needing to show my face I'd probably go to the run for a bit then head off.Or I'd take a night off running and shamelessly get wrecked ...

    Anyway, over to me!

    What: 3.6 or 4.1 mile recovery run (depends what time I get home!)
    Why: Hard 31-minute 4.1 mile fartlek run last night (mostly uphill).

    Saturday : all over massage, loads of walking, and did approx 2 mile run (16min40) with my brother around the 1 in 8 hills
    Sunday : loads of walking , 2-3 hours in the Aqua Sana (steam rooms,sauna,ice room)

    Today : 4.5 miles all off road
    Why : needed to stretch my legs
    Last hard : Thursday
    Last Rest : Yesterday

  • Nice, easy mile and a half.
  • 3.2 miles by pedometer
    Thats better
  • Swerve, the beer always tastes better after a run...

    What: 5 x 6min with 2min rest

    Why: speed day, and I'm sure we will actually do this session tonight. I've been posting this session for the last 3 weeks on a Tue and have ended up doing something different.

    Last Hard: Saturday

    Last Rest: Sunday
  • What: Speed session in Regents Park, 3 x 1min, 5 min, 3 x 1min, 5 min.
    why: no reason for the breakdown, couldn't think what else to do
    Last hard: today, i was tired
    Last easy: yesterday, I was a slob

    Great fun running past camels, wolfs and eagles! Felt a bit sorry for them though. They do look bored! Lots of runners out. Wonder what it will be like in January
    Back to work - check over shoulder....
  • In case your wondering - I was running past London Zoo
  • Glad to see even KK has rest days occasionally.

    Mike, hope you enjoy your 'quality session with the Wirral girls'. :)

    What: 3.5 hrs xcountry with a fair bit of ascent in gorgeous winter sunshine. Nice gentle pace approx 62% whr.
    Why: Power off all morning so good excuse not to do any work and go out running instead. And friend reminded me we're supposed to be doing 23mile xcountry event the weekend after Helsby, so tested part of the route today. Shattered now, please can this count as my long run this week?
    Last rest: yesterday
    Last hard: Sat.
  • Wow! Well done Laura - you can definitely count that as this week's long run.

    I'm running 2.5m handicap with Club tonight. Don't feel like doing it actually. Feel like having one of those runs where you just head out the door, no time or route planned and just run.

    Oh well, another day perhaps. At least I'm getting a run tonight.
  • Go there Laura, well done for today.

    What: 16km ( 10 miles )1hr 12mins.
    Why: Done 18 miles on sunday, needed a complete recovery yesterday after also working 12 hrs on sunday night, pretty wrecked come monday morning, so thought id do a longish steady run today.

    Last Hard: Sunday
    Last Rest: Monday

    Keep it up folks!!
  • What: Nothing, rest day.

    Why: Raced XC on Sunday followed by a 5KM RR tomorrow and a moderately paced 4M off road run in between.

    Last Hard: XC race on Sunday.

  • Yeah, I was running like KK before I was injured - the temptation is there to just ramp straight back up to that level of training again, but I know I'll just overtrain and come a cropper so it's all about the slow buildup :)
  • Not all the usual girls turned up - one new bloke did - so it was 3 of each; for once the blokes weren't outnumbered.
    2/3rd mile "warm up" (misnomer), then tempo run in sub-zero temperatures - covered about 8.5-9K in just under 34 mins. Got back to the car after 1 mile+ warm down & found ice on the windows. The puddles on the pavement were starting to freeze over as well.
    Struggled to keep up with the new bloke & the fastest woman & gradually faded to about 50m+ adrift. Checking back on the splits later, found we'd gone out at sub 6 minute mile pace, so perhaps not surprising. We all slowed quite a lot over the last mile or so.
    Didn't enjoy it at the time, but glad I managed the session now.
  • just a steady 5 miles with my girlfriend she wants to get into running as she plays rugby.

    Ran 12 miles yesterday with the club.
  • Monster speed session on the treadmill 16 x 2min at top speed with 60 secs rest.

    yesterday steady 6 miles

    sunday easy 17 miles

    saturday fast hilly 8 miles

    dunno how the hell I managed the speed session today
  • Hi everybody, sorry didn't read thru the thread today BUT will tomorrow!

    What: Treadmill 5k in 29.30 mins(good time for me)
    Last rest: yesterday
    Last hard : can't remember

    My calf still hurt but hopefully will get better !

    Good Night all!
