Minni v Dubai Dave
Haha - not crazy enough to go back to London, I'd just keep drifting north. Depending on my route, where I stop, how much beer my hosts feed me, and when I get my jantastic runs in ; I reckon it'll be about 4/5 days to newcastle then 3 to central scotland. Good f*rman cross training I reckon!
2old - No Abingdon for me this year, I am doing Berlin, but I have done Abo for the last four years and recommend it. apart from being close to me it is a really well organised race with a flat course. Entry opens 1 Feb, get in quick to avoid disappointment.
Kfc - Nothing wrong with those 1k reps.
Evening - easy run for me tonight.
KFC - have fun in Canada. Are you cycling there?
Nah spoons, swimming...
kfc: Enjoy the swim, are you sure your not O4S's daughter?
Freemers: Return well from Chicago!
Oompa: I first went to Stamford Bridge in 1967! Went back for the first time in 10 years or so last season, its changed a bit and is certainly more expensive. I too prefered it when we were shite. My kids are avid Chelsea fans too, the 4th generation!
Abingdon: Hmmm thinking about it. a bit easier to get to than the wilds of Wooler.
Ran a gentle 3 miles last night which wasn't very pleasant so cycled pre dawn, will swim at lunch. Still have DOMS but feel 98% health wise, hurrah
Near the end last Friday in full shuffle survival mode!
(((DD))) I feel your pain. Hope you're feeling better now.
The snow has almost gone and its MILD, yes MILD here. Very windy though. But MILD.
That's what I look like in marathon photos. The shuffle of death.
KFC: Have a great time - there is some superb cycling between Berwick and Alloa, highly recommended. [To be fair I have no idea where Alloa is, but I am assuming it is north of the border . My tests showed several things close to upper or lower limit of normal, but nothing that points to a particular problem. They are going to re-test blood viscosity which was high - as Mr O4S put it 'Always said you were a bit thick'. But as I would say 'The only evidence pointing to that is the fact I married you!' What you footie fans might call a score draw
Tempo run in a howling gale last night with the club - tucked myself in near the back behind all the tall folks. Very sore left hamstring and tight behind the left knee, I'm falling apart
Floods and gales predicted for today........................
DD: you look much the same as i do at the start of a race
Enjoy Canada KFC - I'm sure you'll get your runs in or Minni will hire someone to track you down.
You're upright DD, which is a bonus
Oompa / DD - I support Bristol City and we are shit! Quite enjoyably shit, though. Am quite looking forward to League 1 next year in a perverse sort of way - just turn up, easy to get a beer before the game etc. Far less hassle. 2Old/Simon, I saw it was 19 years ago last week the one time we weren't shit, when I enjoyed my best night out, watching us win 1-0 at Anfield. We did rid you of Souness though...
AA - snap, my calves are killing me too. So much I've had to bin today's running so my down week is going to be positively vertical. Think running through treacle on Sunday took a bit more out of me than I realised.
DD- you look better than most people in the last stages of a mara. Hope you're recovering well.
KFC and Free- safe travels. Free- hope you're feeling better today.
KFC- nice 1000s
Minni- my MP at the moment is between 7:35-7:50. I try to stick to the faster end when training but the target MP will be decided much later.
HMP intervals last night (2x 2.5m with 2min recovery). Horrid, horrid, horrid. Howling wind and non stop rain, got completely soaked and couldn't warm up for ages afterwards. Ended up doing them @ 7:19-7:16 which considering the conditions I'll take. Was supposed to run into work this morning but failed miserably. Still not sleeping properly after Canada and knackered from last night's session. Will do the planned 5m easy during lunch for once.
Watford half this Sunday, hope the weather is a bit kinder.
Minni-yes it feels like Spring today and January still has a few days to go. Forecast is rain and more rain here though.
Kfc-have fun in Canada-what does your ski touring involve sounds challenging-is it downhill or Xcountry or both? Your planned cycling sounds mad---is everyone crazy here?
Barry- thanks for the Abbo heads up
Free-enjoy Chicago a great city-even if its work
DD-good to see you on the mend , I can feel your pain from the photo..wheres the crowd to urge you on?
Red-thanks for reviving that old wound! Another game Liverpool didnt turn up to.I guess the Sunday run will have had big benefits for you as it was tougher than usual
Bro-I take at least a week to recover from West Coast jet lag though Id have thought that as you were up at silly oclock to run most days you must have been getting up near mid morning UK time anyway. Hope it passes for your HM or youll be running in a daze
It looks like longish intervals for me today.
2old: Crowds? In Dubai? Lucky if you get two men and a dog anywhere on the course, this marathon is essentially run in silence! BUT its flat, its fast and I still managed to age grade below 3 hours
kfc: Enjoy your hols. I think those reps were great! BTW, my reps inevitably go that way ... going sub 4 for a k is fab. Something I've never managed. You have amazing speed!DD: Ouch! You are riding the hurt train pretty hard in that pic
AA. wrote (see)
My calfs ache today...what's that about?! (Angry face!)
yesterday's speedwork, AA! I can join you and Redders on the achy calves wagon Did a double yesterday . Howling gales & rain were forecast for this morning so I figured I'd better get my dreaded P&D LT sesh (4 miles of it) in last night when it was only windy and not yet wet. I was suprisingly un-shit - average 7:10s and it felt easy . No idea were that came from - wind blew from the side so it wasn't a tailwind issue. Anyway, quite happy with that run .Another 6 for recovery this morning in the wind and rain. Too many ankle-deep puddles to dodge. So ended up with wet feet. No way I could have run quick in this!Both runs duly logged on JanIlovemyrunningtastic.
'---is everyone crazy here?'
Chick- very nice LT run!
