A McDonalds story for you...

Should I put the lights out before I leave?
22/11/2002 at 15:59
Not much going on is there?
22/11/2002 at 16:02
No, the usual darkside stuff. Perhaps everyone's gone home.

After moaning at half eight about the time till lunch I've only just got to it

[crunches crisps, ahead of Bounty & cake from someone in the office]

I'm the poor man's version of food scientist becomes accountant: catering student becomes finance systems manager.

afternoon .. spent 2 hrs in the gym total of 75 mins on CV machines and a very very short swim (meet a friend who needed to talk!)
Posted results (very poor) on the triathlon thread

Hiya pixie, more than I've done today!

Should be a good training weekend, however, new Terry Pratchett book plus new Thea Gilmore CD to buy probably equals weekend spent on sofa.....

Theres nothing wrong with them figures - damn good

The rowing is probably a lot further than I'll manage (have not used a rower in 2 yrs)

Cheers WW
Running was very poor - bit miffed acually as I thought it would be better

Well done Pixie, very impressive.
22/11/2002 at 16:34
Well done that Pixie. That's really good for a first time. Are you doing this in addition to your ordinary treadmill running?

Feeling happier now!

pixie - nice one, far more than I've done & I'm supposed to be doing the Wolverton 5 tomorrow afternoon

Well done that Pixie!

My students decided they didn't want a half-day at all, so bang went my chances of avoiding the rush-hour traffic, going to the gym before everyone else did, and getting in my 3x10mins before trying out the Pilates class.

But I've had 20 mins of brisk walking (to and from Asda to buy stamps), and tonight I am going to RUN. Only 5K, but I'm going to blow a big raspberry at the lazy little devil sitting on my shoulder. And I shall not post again until that run is done. Might even venture to put it on Training if I manage not to walk any of it.

Gym tomorrow. Probably won't do the triathlon thing then because I have my set routine on Saturdays and it doesn't include cycling and rowing. Maybe next week.

Glad to see you all back!
Many of you seem to have had a shitty couple of days...hope the weekend pics you up!
Cath is it possible to give you a virtual massage...? you sounded like you needed one at 1.00 am.

Last night was weird...virtual isolation I could wander around doing what I wanted while just about everyone else seemed stuck in some weird world, I got a bit paranoid on the dark side. Thank god v-rap finally poped up for a pre bed time chat.

Musn't grumble that I have yet again missed my 'running slot' as I have just got out of a five hour meeting, everyone else seems to have more to worry about.

Must go home and relieve the Mrs who is probablly already in a state of pre-slumber! I am surely going to be all alone again on a friday night (pregnant wife in bed syndrome)so I will pop back later when there is someone around for a chat!

Managed to motivate myself and run. It was great - I love running in the wet.....and the mud!!!

Did the hardest session of the week by running for 40minutes and throwing in long "maximum effort" intervals of at least 45 secs. Some were downhill, some uphill and some along the flat. Feel envigorated now.

No booze today and run has taken away slight guilt feeling from the crisps noted earlier.

Cheers again!

been eating crisps ALL wekk
God, must give up again
