welcome to wor new hoose!!!!!!
Hope the chocolate and crisps are still going down well and that you have managed to resist the temptation of that 13 mile run.
Well how nice is it to have a saturday off for the 1st time in aaaaaaaaaagggggggeeeeeeeessssssss.
Still rediculously windy today and headed for the gym today for a long run on the dreadmill, 13.1 miles in 1:29 and could have gone for a lot longer. Given my lack of running due to work and illness recently I was pretty pleased with it. Ideally I would have gone an extra couple of miles further but the joys of 12:30 kick-offs at the footie meant I was really pushed for time to get to the match. i could have just gone home and watched it on the tele (that must have been a feast of football for all you armchair fans today). I can't believe we didn't win today having had a weird disallowed goal in the 1st half, a missed penalty in the 2nd and a great save from their goalie with a few minutes to go. We now have the joy of about the longest away trip we can find for the midweek replay.
Away to look at the iplayer and try to work out what the hell happened at that goal that never was. It looked miles offside but the ref never blew his whistle and the linesman never put up his flag for about two minutes after the ball hit the back of the net definition I'd say that was a goal.
Thank god for dark nights. Did a bit of a bizarre training session tonight which should really be reserved for a running track because doing it in public just looks weird. Unfortunately there is only one running track in all of Tayside, its 15 miles from home and unless you are in the hawkhill harriers you have diddley squat chance of ever getting on it. If it is not a club night its all locked up. Thankfully with most folk having their curtains closed on a cold winter night I only looked like a fanny to a handful of doag walkers.
My legs are properly buggered after that run. After lots of sprints my leggies have turned to jelly.
Just watching the news can you believe Tom Daly has just missed the opportunity to push Borris Johnstone off the top diving board. Tut tut the youth of today.
tee hee sorry smiffie couldn't resist it
out of the scottish cup in an early round again.
On the upside I am running not too bad. Had 16 miles on the dreadmill on sunday as the roads were like glass on sunday and had 4.25 miles tonight on 6:30 average pace which isn't too bad after a pretty hard day, in winter and 2 days after a long run. So far so good this year.
Never before has the loneliness of the long distance runner been used to describe a sad b&stard posting to himself in an imaginary house on a t'internet forum.
Lovely for you to pop in smiffie
Well I settled for 4 and a bit miles tonight but tried to do on the gas and give it a bit of welly. Managed an average pace of 6:24/mile. Had 7 miles on Tuesday not pushing as hard at average pace of 6:36. Think I went out a bit too fast tonight and was really on the red in the last mile but worst mile was still only 6:42 tonight. Things still going reasonably well he says expecting some unexpected nastiness to throw a spanner in the works any minute.
Away to have my tea and then attack the remnants of my Christmas chocolate. I wonder if anybody else get a selection box like this one..
For anybody with a bit of time on their hands this weekend.
