le marathon en Paris...
Well I am ashamed to say it but from 1.30pm yesterday until 1am this morning I was in the pub. All good at the time but its going to be one very long day at work. Needless to say todays 12 miles didnot happen. its now torrential rain and I will have to walk to work.......

RS - she is indeed about 2 feet shorter than me - but one thing that may shed insight into why I still try not piss her off is that at age 16 she fought hand to hand combat in Israel's 1948 war of Independance, and then when surrounded managed to escape carrying two small children with he to safety - and she's lost none of that even at her aged 81!
How cool to have a Ninja Mum
DV - Cool and a little scary Can't wait to here more about how your plans are going
Gorgeous weather here - much too warm for running, where's the rain and wind that kept me cool
Ugh....pensions....ugh.....that is all.
Time off to watch Wiggo and Cav steam to glory this afternoon though....
ATM - I'm on 40 miles per week just now - my legs are knowing about it.
* The running, not the tax stuff...*
Last day of the tour.
Did my 22k in the sun today. Felt pretty ok but was quite tired for the last 1k.
I often wear a HRM and my readings have often been a bit higher than I would have expected but Yoda Tricky told me not to worry as some people (DV for one) have higher heart rates than others.
However, on my run today, my readings for one particular 30 minute section went above 200 on 7 occasions - peaking at 219. Yet this was one of the sections were I was feeling pretty good.
I've tried a search for Maximum heart rates and they all seem to be based on a value of 220 - something.
Am I some kind of bluebottle/human hybrid (I do like sugary things). Is my HRM dodgy? or could some other thing (sweat, movement etc) have caused strange readings?
Dannirr - sage advice. What a incredible woman your Mum must be.
Orbutt - clearly an error in the HRM. Obviously, however, if you feel unwell and the numbers are very high, stop and chill. (I'd be in hospital with an HR of 219.) By the way, what is your next race?
TdeF - isn't it wonderful, I don't want it to end! I did the Northumberland Coastal Run (simply the best race I have ever done) this morning in my yellow Paris t-shirt - and they gave out yellow, long-sleeved cycling jerseys at the end! A first time for that and I assume related to Wiggo et al. Haven't see any champers yet, though...
This is way too exciting , for my old heart...
Cracking idea for Finisher jerseys, Iain.
ATM - Indeed - I'm very impressed! Btw, check out the Northumberland Coastal Run for 2013, the best and most beautiful run in this part of England... And not too far from Glasgow!
Oh, and, WHAT A WAY TO WIN!! FANTASTIC STUFF!
I hope you were paying close attention. RR
Iain - at no point did I feel ill and when I was supposed to beating like a hardcore techno track I was actually feeling really good Next proper race is the Warrington Half on September 9th but I'm taking part in a 5k fun run (with Mrs O ) on Saturday.
Loved the cycling jersey touch too.
I'm sure that I wasn't the only one to shout at the tele when the commentator said that the Champs Elysee is only closed twice for the Tour and Bastille Day.
Done a bit of searching about the high readings and it would appear that it could be a static build up between shirt/unit/strap. There are a couple of suggestions, one of which is to use the Polar strap with the Garmin unit, so I may give that a go. Another is to wash the strap and make sure it is clean/tight and in good contact.
I'll let you know how it goes.
How good it is to have a couple of medical professionals to hand, too - thanks Gents
You just need one of these, RR, and we're good to go. 'Tartan' can run.I know where we can have lunch.What can go wrong?
or one of these, from today's coastal run
