Thought id put a thread up, after reading everyone else’s threads.
100m: 10.6h (2001)
200m: 21.75e (2001/02)
400m: 47.8e (2002) (46.7h)
Was a consistent 48s 400m runner up until the 2003/04 season (couldnt quite get to where i wanted to be), have/had achilles tendinitis and calf tendinosis - always flared up if too much speed work, or too much work on tartan track. So often missed sessions, recovery between sessions was longer.
Had some time off, got married, just had a baby etc etc. So now im trying to get back into it again. Kept reasonably fit throughout time off, general fitness/gym work
Jan 07 i had a couple of 400m runs a 50.2 and 49.8 after a few weeks training over xmas last year, and i got the bug again - wanted to start training
Training has been a bit staggered and stop start due to terrible weather conditions (sub 0)
over winter and work commitements
Aims: to get through season. make state final over 400 (or maybe 200?). Id like to be able to run back in the 48s - who knows, may go faster!
Not aiming too high as wife just had a baby, work commitments, early rising in the morning (3:30) to get to work. Long days.
So i fit in training in lunch breaks where i can.
I know it doesnt look like i have many rest days, but if im tired, i may miss a session or cut the session down.
Any comments/feedback would be greatly appreciated
