Minni v Dubai Dave
Ew forecast does look bad doesn't it. XC will be a swamp on Sunday. Not too bad for Bro in Spain thankfully.
I have a beast of a hangover today after the first Xmas party. Booze. Bah
Freemers: didn't know you were racing too. And spoons as well?Hope the weather forecast improves. It looks quite the same over here. Right now it's blue skies and brilliant sunshine but of course I have no time today to do a lunchtime run .DD: crossing my fingers for your Tri tomorrow!A 4 week taper would kill me. No way. 2 weeks is plenty, fanks
Chick - yes, me and spoons too. But we'll be eating Daren's dust I expect . Originally thought I could get a PB and aim for around 1.33, but to be honest if it is that windy I'm doubtful unless miraculously it is behind us all the way which would require several shifts of wind direction. I'm just going to find someone big and wide to run behind
Remember that Freemers always lies and claims she is going for a time 10 minutes slower than she actually plans to so if it all goes wrong she doesn't have to admit it
Ant- ouch, hope you enjoyed the party.
DD- all the best for tomorrow.
Free- go for it, you never know!
I've just purchased a bottle of beetroot juice, not taking any chances. Minni- remind me, when am I supposed to have it? Is it meant to be tomorrow, Sat and race day?
I'm meeting up with SSheep for dinner tonight, what a shame it will have to be sober!
We say, Don't be Shit! Completely not negative unless I suppose you look at it in a negative way. Its the same as HTFU - same thing, different words. Get with the game FRC.
Simon-never was good at counting but maybe that was why I was always tired
Ant-Ive got a hangover too-my swim felt as though I was swimming in glue
FRC-maybe you could suggest cars that represents each of the rest of us on the thread? Im a bit like a Hummer.
Spoons-you know Free well!
Another allergic reaction to the pool but Im learning to live with it
Looks like its going to be busy on here this weekend
I'm a smart car - small and smart
I'm a Mini, of course
FRC - the Don't Be Shit motto is only negative if you let it be taken that way! We all have shit runs - and are quite happy to tell our friends on here about them and then move onto the next race. Life's too short to take it too seriously. But I love the DBS picture I'd like to think I am a TVR, but in reality am probably a bit more like a lada - a bit old but you get a lot of mileage out of them
Surely a Free-lander....?
A freelander, hmmm. A bit rugged and loved by Jeremy Clarkson OMG that is SO wrong
great to see the excitment mounting for this weekend's races. Hope the wind isn't as bad as last year for the Norwich gang!
To add to the LR debate - got my runner's world magazine through the door this morning - there is a spread in there about marathon training and Steve Smythe's gives 12 golden rules - his second rule is 'Long runs are key' - he even goes on to say that other runs - speedwork/midweek distance runs and marathon pace runs - have their place but aren't as crucial as the LR. His theory being that the key to a good marathon is how well you hold your pace over the last 10k and the ability to do that well comes from plenty of long runs..... interesting, I think we can all relate to the old saying 'a marathon doesn't really begin until you are past mile 20'.....
Knee still behaving, did spin Tuesday and just heading out now for a slow 4 mile run. Have fairly much decided I will be deferring next year's VLM, so sticking to slow easy stuff to slowly build back up without the pressure of a pending race, hopefully that works!
FRC - HTFU!
FRC- many thanks!!! Lol not sure about Aston Martin but if you insist... I'll do my best to leave a few Spaniards behind in dust. Nothing wrong with Don't Be Shit tough, love it!
Meeting up with SSheep and OHs in a pub on Wimbledon Common. Want to join us?
Kiwi- yey, great news on the knee front.
