  1. RUN
    Epping Run club 14 km 01:17 08:51 pace

    Did this on Thursday and seem to have a cold now. Should I run or stay in? Feeling like skipping my run today to get better.

      Well you know what they say about it being in your head or chest..personally I'd lean towards not running to recover.

      Excellent run from Thursday. From experience, I'd say take the time off - better to heal fully than have it drag on for weeks (which can happen!)

    great 2 part - tempo & hills 8 km 00:38 07:36 pace

    First part, was tempo run. Ron suggested 4:45 pace I think (he knows more than I'll ever forget about running!). I was scared, thought it would hurt but then he distracted me with tales of run... read more

  12. These recovery tips seem good - not the usual tosh.

      What is the standard meaning of "tosh?" I'm hoping that it is Down Under slang for "trash" and not a mistyped word. That way, I can attempt to incorporate it into my vocabulary and be one of those annoying Americans who tries to sound "worldly" by using foreign slang.

      It just means nonsense Tab..I had a uncle in law from Liverpool who would use it every once in awhile when talking to or about children,his ex wife, etc.

    5 min WU, then 5 x 20 s hard, 40 s easy. After 5 reps then 3 mins rest. Totally makes the time go by fast. And then tonight I broke my bike moving the bike trainer in the garage. Meh!
