    Steady hour if I can manage it.
    Feel fine and need to draw up the plan for Q1 2003 (not in FLM).
    Todays session will determine whether I'm fully recovered from the bugs of the past 10 days or wheter I'll take another weeks rest.

    Happy 2003 to all my readers.
  • What: 5 miles including 10x1min hills, jog recovery
    Why: for fun!
    Last hard: the hills, not the run
    Last rest: Sat
  • Morning everybody, here are my wishes for you for the New Year:

    - health, love and fun for you and your families
    - some runs for PB,s, some for challenge, some for your souls, some for relaxation, some for socialising

    As for today:
    What: rest day
    Why: haven't had one for over a week, and I'm out of synch with all my sessions.
    Last hard: yesterday. Long runs are hard days in my book!
    Last rest: last Mon.

    Have fun tonight whatever you're doing. I have forgiven my Dad all his misdemeanours as he has offered to drive us all home from friends' do!

    Have a good night tonight everyone!
  • What: 8 Miles, up tempo (in 52:34)
    Why: Got an **important** race this Saturday (county XC championships), so I'm jumping off the knackering Horwillian bandwagon this week. This is one of my favorite Tapering type sessions. I run it how I feel. Keeps some speed in my legs, but I dont put it any 'supreme' efforts

  • I just went for a 7 mile cross country romp in my new air storm pegasus - first training session since the dreaded cold - ruined the look of the shoes, but to their credit i stuck to the very muddy trails like a fast moving limpet.

    Happy new year folks
  • 4 miles slowly
  • That nasty damp SE wind is back again - so out came the black Lycra running tights (Xmas pressy from Mrs S) for their debut.

    They did the job very well - more than can be said for their new owner.

    1 mile in 6:21; then 2 miles in 12:44; then 2 miles in 13:04 - these off 3 minute slow jogged recoveries.

    Called it a day at that point and jogged back home.

    Have a nice evening everyone....we'll meet again next year.
