Training Session: Xmas Eve!
What: EATING, EATING, EATING, EATING, doing some hill reps, EATING, EATING!
Last hard: Today! (I have a 'nice' hill nearby)
Last rest: The other day
you only posted this now because you didn't want sarcy doing it before you!
i don't know yet, may well go for a long run(to empty the ol' glycogen stores) 12-16 miles depending on time, mood, and what my body tells me
5:40am 4M easy run [already done!]
pm: Mile reps.
Why: If this week goes well I plan to race a spring marathon.
Still at work today, so a
VeRy MeRrY cHrIsTmAs

I will hopefully make it out the door tomorrow to gear the old body up for Christmas Dinner and if I'm lucky try out any new Christmas running gear
Have a wonderfull Christmas everybody and catch up with you alll in the New Year.
xx (kisses for the girls, and a good firm handshake to all the lads)
Morning all -
Hills for me to - then alot of drinking and making merry!
What: 7 Miles, 10 Minute Warm Up, then 10 * 1 Minute Fast (2 Minute jog receovery), finish the 7 miles.
Why: RW Marathon Schedule says so.
Have a good Christmas!
What : NOTHING
Why : rest day
Outrunning, how can you go running at this time of the morning in this weather???
MERRY CHRISTMAS Everybody!
What: Legs stil knackered from Sunday when I over did it! Shame actually, thee club's doing 8 miles over Epsom Downs which sounds good.
Should make it out the door tomorrow if the blood content of my alcohol stream gets high enough!
HMG - going running in this weather (and a lot worse!) is pretty much necessary in this country if you're training for a spring marathon or something. It gets a lot worse than this!!
What: Vacuuming, dusting, cleaning bathroom, washing kitchen floor. Will try to fit a resistance session in somewhere (probably the living room)
Why: Got to make room for Christmas somehow.
Merry Christmas everyone!
What : Nothing
Why : Because - I've not run since Sunday now
Have a good christmas one and all
Damp & dull, but lovely and mild here.
Sleep disturbed again last night as I got a call from work at 00:20. Partially made up for it this morning.
What: Depends on how I feel, but either
9.3K at intended Helsby race pace (6:24 per mile)
or my 10.3K course at same pace if I'm feeling good
or 3 x 2 miles at 6:20 pace off 3 minute or 1/3 mile jogged recoveries.
Why: Don't know how I'll feel after the weekend efforts (though stiffness from Sun has gone). If I do the latter (round a circuit which stays close to home), I'll be able to back off (leave out a rep) if I find it too hard.
Last hard days: Sun, Fri
Last rest days: Mon, Sat
Brooks the beast
What 6-8 Miles
Why A four year Christmas Eve tradition.
Nice wind down at lunchtime from work.
What: 5 miler at some point today
Why: schedule says so and had big fat bloater chinese last night (food not fella!)
Leaving work in 10 mins so:
MERRRRRRRYYYY XMAS TO ONE AND ALL
Merry Xmas Wolfy, and everyone else.
Runner - a well aimed blow to the nethers will get rid of that chimp, but maybe you should use him for a bit of resistance training.
What: Today I will need a LOOOONNNNGG run. Mum is here for Xmas, and is driving me nuts already. I've only been at work for 2 hours and she's phoned twice already (I don't NEED to know the window cleaner is here!) and spent last night following me from room to room.
Why: To maintain sanity and Christmas spirit.
Planning to run every day until coming back to work on 6th January.
Up at 6. Tesco at 7. Work at 8. 6 mile run. Shower. Desk at 9. Coffee and crumpets at 10. Forum at 11. Home at 12.
Merry Christmas everyone. Hope Santa brings you something nice.
What: 6 x Mile in spikes, offroad, 5:45 avg., 45 second jog recoveries
Why: Horwill say's
Last Hard: Today! Yippee!
Last Rest: Saturday, (Booo!)
Merry Xmas everybody!
with relatives and family buzzing around today, that 16 miler is getting increasingly more distant. might split it up into two sessions.
anyway, merry christmas everyone:)
Merry Christmas all, hope everyone has a great day tomorrow and a little of what they wished for!
What: 10 miles in my santa hat (got quite a few honks from motorists)@ 1/2 marathon pace-7:06 min miles.
Why: wanted a longish hard run before having my 2 days of rest.
Last hard: today
Last rest: from running yesterday, but not from training. Thursday was my last day of doing nothing.
Be merry, ho,ho,ho!
Running in the light, now there's a novelty.
What: 5 miles with middle 2 1/2 run at race pace (which for me is just under 7 mins per mile).
Why: have not run at pace for more than a mile since dec 1.
Last rest: Saturday.
Last hard: Sunday.
Happy xmas and I hope Santa brings everything the kids want.
3 easy miles

i haven't run yet............
distant like i said................
Finally got out at 19:00 after a hard afternoon's shopping.
3 x 2 miles off 3 minute recoveries, in which I jogged 1/3 of a mile.
times: 12:38; 12:39; 12:50
Not very much in the tank - particularly by the time I did the last rep.
Oh well, 2 days of nice easy running, & significant volumes of rest and carbo (and protein and fat and maybe even some alcohol) loading to come....
Merry Xmas all
