JF - I love The Wire
well, decided not to go to running club, got home a bit shattered and still a bit snotty, don't want the full blown cold to come back. So, an early night and up for a nice long soc tomorrow. We have just got series 4 of Breaking Bad on dvd so will watch that instead of running club tonight
Emmy, if you want this bug I will happily give it to you! Went to track last night but had to bail out with stomach cramps, so ran 5 miles then walked 2 home feeling miserable, back to bed at 8.30pm and decided not to go out this morning. Maybe an NOC. I saw lots of frogs on my walk last night too JF, maybe it's the latest plague after the zombies earlier this year. Happy hump day.
Never managed on yesterday. Net playing up then busy with younger sons 17th Birthday.
NW: 1 owl, 1 KingsmillVan, 3BMWs (Ran past BMW corner), 1 cyclist, 1 cat, 1 fox.
Sandy: Welcome to our madhouse.
6 miles run in the drizzly rain
NW 0, OR 4, 1 ninja cyclist
resting here... well more like recovering as I fell off my bike yesterday - slipped over on a tight corner which I suspect had some diesel on it. Anyway, went down like a sack of spuds and banged my left elbow heavily and road rashed my arm and left leg where I slid a bit! Ouch. These things happen I suppose.... the bike is fine and I wasn't run over - those are the main things!
My goodness did it rain last night..... woke me at 3:30 and again an hour later as it was torrential against the side of the house.....very glad to have been in bed.
Morning folks. Happy birthday to Master Birky.
PSC - hope you are not too sore after the bike accident
Kate - you are probably better off having a couple of days rest
happy birthday to young birky
I managed 5 miles, very cold wind. Think I am not fully recovered from my lurgy as heart rate higher than it normally is for the plod that I was doing.
happy hump day
Me! Just started, I wake up at 5:30 in the morning and leave at about 6:15 am. It's the best time of day to do it I think. I still have time to get ready for school as well, so it works out better in all ways.
((Kate)) Get well soon!
Ouch PSC, at your pace that would have hurt.
10.5miles today. Tried out some shot bloks recommended by an esteemed triathlete. Nothing really improves my pace but they did taste good.
There have been several flagrant breaches of my username copyright recently. I'm considering instigating some penalties....
1st time offender.....10 press ups at the end of each mile
2nd time........Run with a 5kg weight in a rucksack
3rd time......Hmmmmm it could be very nasty...
Have a good evening folks and enjoy your 5.31am SOCs.........
Evening all - thanks for the good wishes, back out tonight, 6.5 miles very slow but not walking so an improvement. Managed a client lunch today as well so definitely on the mend. PSC, bicycling is dangerous, which is why you should go nice and slow, bad for training, good for staying upright. 5.30, if you want some advice on nutrition ask the pros here, I think shot bloks may even slow you down as they're so chewy, second only to malt loaf which gives miles of distraction as you pick it out of your teeth. MC, hope you're back on form tomorrow. Craigerrs, welcome along, but don't forget, 5.29am or 5.31am or you'll have copyright infringements issues. Happy birthday master birky. TG, are you into an IM training programme yet, you seem to be out there consistently at the moment. Have a good evening all, and fingers crossed an SOC beckons for me in the morning.
Evening everyone . Probably not the best time of day to introduce myself to your thread, as I'd imagine a lot of you will be getting early nights in preparation for an SOC.
But I'd love to make myself cosy here if that's okay? I've been running since March and completely fallen in love with it. I joined a club in June and did my first half marathon a few weeks ago. I'm certainly not very fast but I love it anyway. I've always run my midweek runs in the evenings, but I'm now at a point where I'm struggling to squeeze everything in. So it looks as though SOC may be the answer. I'm up early anyway for work (between 5:31 - 6am) so I'll have to get up really early to fit in a run.......but I see that lots of you manage it so I've been inspired to give it a go.
I won't be doing it everyday, but I'm going to aim for at least one SOC a week to begin with - starting tomorrow .
Tiny welcome.... 10pm is bedtime for me!
Mrning you lot
Morning 5:30 all the best for Sunday.
5M fartlek done. Cold when out so wore gloves for 1st time this autumn.
NW: 1 owl, 1 Morrisons Van, 2 llamas,4 horses, 1 KingsmillVvan,1 cyclist, 1 person posting a letter, PW: 1 car.
Craigerrs: Welcome to the madhouse . Good to have you on board.
I would never have thought of hoola hooping as training, but hey, why not!
75 mins run this morning. Only needed my torch once as I was running around a blind bend and could hear a car coming. Still enough moon to see the road. My hip was a bit stiff after my bump 2 days ago, but otherwise it was a nice steady plod.
Still warm down here.... no need for gloves just yet
Have fun folks.....
welcome timy - hope you managed to get out. I have to be back from my run by 6am to get ready for work, so often get up around 4am, 4:30 if I am lying in for my runs!
felt more back to normal today and 6.5 miles. Chilly but not gloves weather yet - I had better find them though ready for when I need them.
have a great day everyone
