DLR - fingers crossed that you're right. At least I'm quite experienced at treating it now. Great running too mate, great to see you racking up the miles.

Simon - cracking result. Glad you enjoyed it.

Wohlf - running without pain is a great start.

Afternoon all, well done to anyone running in this heat. I've had a rubbish time of things recently with first having a bad cold followed up by a stomach bug so done very little running. Feeling much better so hopefully get some miles done this week. 


Good luck to the ITLR guy's.

Unexpectedly long and hilly run for me this afternoon. My pacing was a mess and I now have sore quads and calf muscles. I blame my personal trainer/massage therapist who has decamped to Slovakia...

It was, however, all worthwhile to see this scenery, including this little Celtic church, built in the early 1200s and enlarged in 1779. Sometimes it's nice to just stop and look at something different, isn't it?

Lovely MM.  As is the scenery.

14 miles for me today.  But after 8 I returned home and did the last 6 indoors.  Not sure why the hear is getting me this year and not other years - dare I suggest it's because I'm older?  My BRF tells me its because I'm now a vegan

I noticed that I found it more difficult to cope with the Australian heat, but then I realised it was in fact a hotter summer than last year. Is it possible the same thing is happening in the States?

I was rubbish in the heat at y/days coastal run- nice day out though...This is how the race starts

So, we've started ITLR 
And I've already managed to have two breakfasts this morning

Today's batting order if anyone wants to join in with a synchronised run

TD - 6am to 7.15am.
Helterskelter - 8.46am to 9.38am (Yes, timings are awfully precise - TD doesn't plan things by half)
Emmy - 9.38am to 11.35am 
RR - 11.35am to 1.10pm
Iain - 2.11pm to 3.12pm
Me - 3.12pm to 4.25pm

For those who don't know, loads of pics are up on Fizzbog (you don't need to have a login to see them) All being well with wifi, we'll be sticking loads of pics and videos on there.

And we're having dinner tonight in an old Soviet aircraft just across the border in the Czech Republic

 Right, off to see if I can scrounge a third breakfast from somewhere...

Weedy - when the cat's away the mice cant play. You've already posted the list !  I was going to add Sid Boogle, Dr Soaper, Joan Fussey.  Is this the hangover recover order.  Is Douglas running the 7:15-8:46 ? You can tell who organised the order, TD has the morning breeze whilst RR is going to fry in the midday sun.  Good luck to everyone.

Well done Weedy "Multiple Brekkies" Gonzalez

15/07/2013 at 09:41

Super Weedy!

I hope the navigation equipment is working OK. I have the tracking link, but it is saying that it can't connect.

15/07/2013 at 09:51

Maus. Can you share the tracking link?

15/07/2013 at 10:11

Monday morning intervals for me.  Those pesky pyramid ones.  But, considering I've not done any since last September, they weren't too bad

15/07/2013 at 13:59

Good luck to everyone in the ITLR! Sounds like a great event.

Wohlf -- get through the first few tough runs and things will improve fairly quickly.

Danir-- if you find the answer to the morning/late evening run question, let me know.  In general morning runs feel better to me, but Im not great at getting up early enough to run before work.

15/07/2013 at 14:06

Lawyeraaron - no answers from me.  I tried the afternoon yesterday, with less humidity but higher temps and it did not go well.  I think for me the answer is to do morning runs for my less important runs (recovery and easy runs, long runs, hills ) but I'm going to be indoors for my target specific runs (tempo, mara pace, fartleks).

Yesterday I did 8 miles outside and it was horrible - had to stop twice in Dunkin Donuts to cool off in their air conditioning. Once home did another 6 on the treadmill and felt much better, stronger.

15/07/2013 at 15:47

i'm going out tonight for a 7 miler. it's hot. but from tomorrow going to stat gettin up early and run.



15/07/2013 at 16:15

I am going to try my first run since the start of lurgy tonight......not particularly looking forward  to it as I know I am not completely better but if I don't it will be Wednesday before I get to run.

An  overnight boat trip to Aberdeen tonight again for optometerist appointments for the children tomorrow, then boat home again tomorrow night. Not looking forward to that either!

15/07/2013 at 16:46

Kaz - I hope you're feeling better. If you're still not feeling great an extra couple of days rest won't do you any harm.

15/07/2013 at 16:47

Kaz: Yeah what Eggy said. I know you feel like a slacker, but honestly (as somebody said to me recently) you're probably not as better as you think you are!

15/07/2013 at 17:15

In other news I just ordered a running cap due to the big orange burny thing in the sky lingering about. I apologise in advance if it disappears the second the cap arrives!
