meanwhile - whats going on in here? is ATM about yet?

24/04/2013 at 22:13

Orkney number one. Must be the fudge!

TJB - I think ATM is still trying to kick-start the Cypriot economy.

Weedy has gone very quiet recently? you out there pal?

Frazzled. Another solid night of ITLR planning and meetings behind me.  A bit like the night before as well. We are going to havea blast and hopefully raise a lot of money for an excellent cause along the way. Must sleep.

Start to Run coaching at lunchtime, then hockey fitness coaching for two teams in the evening. Wouldn't mind some time to work on my own fitness too. Night all

That makes me tired just reading it TD!

I spent last night cancelling all debit and credit cards and getting new ones ordered, Thanx to some kinda fault with the security on my laptop.

This morning 40 mins circuit training followed by a 7k run. Felt awful to start with, but by the end of 'ok'.

DV:  what I want to know is ..... how was the pub

Fog is clearing and a wonderfully sunny day is here - and I'm doing a lovely cliff path dog walk - no trotting worked really hard for the 11 on tuesday so now not running until saturday - feels very odd and its like I'm being naughty for not running!!! 

My mantra is ........ have done the miles now really doesn't make any difference I can and will do this .... 

Question :  why does my side ache - silly me taper madness... I'm really loosing it was hoovering at 7am this morning ....

TD:  is the ITLR coming anywhere near Jersey???? 

25/04/2013 at 08:39
PF - only if I'm doing the navigating .

If the taper madness is getting really bad, my fridge could do with clearing out...

Any London runners done the JP Morgan Chase event in Battersea Park before? I've got the option of doing it through work. Part of me thinks it will be a horrible stampede (13,000 runners in Battersea Park?), but it's on my birthday and as long as I get over the line I'd be guaranteed a PB (distance is 5.6km) .

I've done it in Frankfurt. PACKED and very frustrating to get through as the slower runners start forward and walk side by side.

I'm pretty sure I cleared it of bacon and grapefruit juice


PriFi -  the taper is just the last stage of training, albeit a different approach.  Relax and have fun!

DV - you have left the pub, right?

25/04/2013 at 08:51

During marathon training I had the work xmas party on a night I was scheduled to do a 6 mile run. So I got up in the morning to do it. Felt great afterwards. But then at 2pm I hit the wall and just wanted to go to sleep at my desk.

I spose you need to train yourself to get up at 6am to run.

25/04/2013 at 08:59

I think it's easier in the summer James, as 6am is light.  Then have a good breakfast when you get in.

25/04/2013 at 09:17

Sorry Pri-Fi, we're only running 1.250kms across Europe so that won't land us near Jersey.  But you are welcome to come and join in part of the run. We start in Bratislava and finish in Brussels.  We will pass through Vienna, Prague, Frankfurt and Cologne.

Planning meeting last night went really well and we've got the next level of route plan confirmed. If anybody would like to support us by helping with practical organisation tasks, or making a noise about this activity in their social networks, do feel free to get in touch.

For those who are joining us on the running team, we'll write to you soon with some specifics. I hope to confirm today or tmrw the hotel in Bratislava so you can get on with the bookings and Emmy is getting sample T-shirts made up according to Weedy's fabulous design.  Anybody can buy one/ several!!

I'll tell you all about it later...

The beer was Mocha, from Batemans brewery.  Quite strong at 6% but very smooth and a chocolatey taste.......

'Morning allopoloskyprianosmarathonollos ..

Despite my sterling efforts, there's still some red wine and halloumi on Cyprus but I expect an invitation to the Finance Ministry Staff Dance at Christmas..

Now to catch up with the real world that is the Paris thread...

25/04/2013 at 09:41

Welcome home

Are you tanned?

25/04/2013 at 09:43

Ooooh ATM - well done, lass.  They'll thank you for it, later.

It's my wedding anniversary.  4 years and nobody dead yet

25/04/2013 at 10:05

Congratulations yer_maj (on the anniversary and lack of killing)!

25/04/2013 at 10:13

Congratulations, yer_maj!

Tanned, O? I'll have to consult the hydration chart...Well, you can see where my watch was. That's as tanned as I'll ever be, I think.
