Easy run around Damflask. Great weather and starting to feel like my old self. Saw the Heron twice - bonus.

Cycling 45:00 [2]

Cycling over to Millhouses to help out a local event. Loads of beginners and families. A really nice low key atmosphere and great to have nearly 100 runners.

Eureka - How they used to train

When I was a young boy of about 13 years old I came across a pamphlet which had details about the training schedules of the British Squad members. I remember reading it in awe, learning about the training of Stan Hale, Andy, Jon, Yvette, Tim T (he wanted a coach) & even Jase (I remember he liked a bit of babminton). I thought it was brilliant and I dreamed about training like seniors when I "grew up."

I lost the booklet (sold to raise money for the squad) and tried to track down a copy a couple of years ago without success. I was talking to Ian Wainwright about it recently and he said that he was the one who put it together! He has passed me a photocopy of the original which I have scanned an uploaded for everyone to read in all its glory. Life must be different now when juniors can follow seniors' exploits on AP but I still think it provides an interesting snap shot into the thoughts and approaches of different Squadies.

The document is here.

12 PM

Running 35:00 [1] 4.0 mi (8:45 / mi)

Working from home in the morning so nipped out at lunchtime up Rivelin. Just did a short loop but felt great, could have gone on and on today. Bumped into Dr Thake on his way out for a mammouth cycle ride.

S+C 1:00:00 [1]

Mincing in the gym. Heart not really in it but knocked out a solid session. Would like to get in some routine again and need to review my exercise portfolio.

Running 40:00 [1] 5.2 mi (7:42 / mi)

Depressingly it was too dark to run off road on the way home so stuck to my usual 5 mile route. Legs and body feeling ok.
