happy birthday to miss by eck
big boy is fine. We knew he was feeling better on Friday evening when he started being mean to little boy
gym done, we are going to take big boy out for lunch as little boy is off to the theatre with my mum and a friend to see Vile Victorians. Big boy was supposed to go but didn't want to (has grown out of going out with granny!) and luckily has a music rehearsal as an excuse
Happy birthday to Miss By'eck! Hope she has fun.
Franny - hope you feel better soon and that work goes quickly.
AF - Hope it went well. We are waiting for your report.
MC - have a nice lunch out.
Chili - don't know about baby showers either. Sorry!
I finally got out for a run. Just a 5 miler but my first run for over 3 weeks.
At home doing piano lessons now. I'm half way through daughter's lesson but she is having a break. Too much sight reading gives her concentration overload.....
Be back later for AF's report.
afternoon all.....HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ANASTASIA!!!!!!!
boss, hope the race went well today, sorry couldnt text a good luck but had poor signal and didnt take lappy with me to Essex-no time!! will await your report!
chili, wow you packed a lot in! hope the guitar playingwent ok too.! how was croydon? i think Parkrun director is Debs there.......
re:baby shower, i had one and generally its like a little tea party with food and snacks and then present opening...sometimes theres games like suggesting names etc..but generally a chitchat with food and gifts!!
franny awwww sis-hope your stinky cold goes thats pants , and just as you are getting over your injury too.
jude, yayyyy glad you had a run, concert sounds fabby! how often are they?
im back from Essex and had a fab time..lots of dancing , drinking, fab dresses and charity bids! i got signed Ricky Hatton boxing gloves!!! in pink!!!!!!
How is everyone? Just shooting through (as a certain Antipodean of my acquaintance may say )
I've read everything, and can't remember any of it!
Had a nice run this morning, beautiful frosty morning, and got to explore a new area - Hertford is a beautiful place, ran along an old railway line, then across some fields, and up and down some HILLS!!!!! Much more fun than running around flat old Fenland
Just had a lovely walk this afternoon around the local woods - literally 500m from her house
Right, i'm off to see what i've bought on eBay!
Take care everyone
Jude - well done on getting a run in the schedule
rocker - good to hear from you
loula pink boxing gloves??
Ricky Hatton pink boxing gloves???
7.61km again for me today, including a nice fast hill (I'm done with just plodding up those things!) Bloody cold, should've bought my gloves! I'm going to pick up the 10k plan again next week.
One thing though: the Achillies tendon on the same leg as the knee is a bit sore - I've only noticed that since I started wearing the knee support - I don't know if it's because it's too tight or something, or whether it's an entirely unrelated issue. It's not bad, just a bit sore.
RR - the knee support will be changing the way you run, and this could be affecting the achillies - be careful. Well done on a fast hill though
Cheers, Mathschick - I'll keep a close eye on it. With the knee being the predominant problem, it's easy to get tunnel vision and to forget that there are a multitude of other things that can go wrong with us runners.
Just cleared Week 3 of 100 pushups plan, so now on to Week 4. I've had to repeat each week at least once so far though and Week 4 looks like it's going to dial things up a notch.
Time for chinups now.
Happy Birthday Miss Byeck!
Loula - pleased you had a great weekend. Sounds very good fun.
Rocker - wonderful to hear the smile in your words and that you have had such a great weekend
RR - no idea about the achillies but well done on the run.
Jude - well done on your run too.
Wonder how the Boss is getting on?
Well, the guitar playing this morning went well. To be honest, our church is so lovely and friendly that they are delighted with anything! But I led the worship with My Big Girl and No.2 singing and No.3 playing her guitar. All three of them take after their Dad who is very musical with a lovely voice. He sang up front with us for one song too, so it was kind of Von Trapp Family look! And of course the church thought it was wonderful.... but was probably rather cheesy.
Perhaps offer to do 'Farewell, Adieu' as a Christmas Special?
chili - sounds like a lovely service this morning, you must be so proud of your girls
RR - well done on the press ups - I have started trying to do some, but the girly knee pushups because I really can't do the others. Did try a pull up but just dropped like a lead weight! Don't want to pull my arms out of my sockets, although there is a machine at the gym that has a kneeling bit to take some of your weight so am doing a couple every time I am at the gym
Just got back.
Thanks for all of the good luck wishes.
I willl catch up and do a full reprt tomorrow,but I am pleased to say that I smashed my PB by 5 minutes & 10 seconds. Delighted to finish my 1/2 in 1.37.10! So happy Boss.
well done boss
Wow!! AF -that's amazing! Well done you! I bet you are over the moon.
wow thats fab boss!!!!!!!!!! you izzzz speedy
just worked out your average pace - it is quicker than I run my quickest interval can't imagine running that fast for more than 30 seconds...
Hola all. Long time no see. I've been a busy boy this week at work, so absolutely no time for this place at all. Anyway, was teaching on a business course this week at a posh country house hotel, so had access to gym in the mornings. Monday was the first time back in the gym for ages. 1.5k row and 1.5k run before I figured I should call it a day. Tuesday morning was worse. Did the 1.5k row, and then tried to run. It wasn't feeling good - only managed about 500m before I had to bail. Managed 1.5k bike ride though. And then promptly spent the rest of the week doing 14 hour days.
WooHooo!!!!! Well done Boss!!!! What a fantastic time.
Hi Mr Byeck - well done in getting to the gym.

That's good, Mathschick - the assisted pullup/chinups are recommended by the plan if you're struggling to do unassisted ones. It's got a couple of 'minus' weeks designed to get people to the level where they can begin to tackle the plan proper.
Howdy, Mr By 'Eck.
Holy... AF - you really did trash your time today, didn't you?
RR - I need more minus weeks to get to the point where I can do the minus weeks in the plan
hi mr by eck - well done in the gym, it is your knee stopping you from running?
