Wabo - enjoy Peru!!

Not sure I can add to the very technical Yasso discussion so won't even try. Spending day plodding through my Corporation tax return and my personal tax head hurts and I am easily distracted...had about 10 cups of tea this morning...must focus.

Running wise it is all very crap...doing plodding runs trying to get back some mojo but not really working. I may need a new hobby like golf or fishing or darts.

Got a half marathon scheduled in a few weeks and my longest run this year has been about 6 miles so it may be a very slow and painful journey!!

Susan - enjoy your secret trip (once you get a passport!). Please can you give us a full report on one of your track sessions soon!

I like the name "Bullock Smithy" sounds real hard (which it is). I don't like the name so much that I would name one of my children it but maybe a cat or a dog! I think I may be putting off the inevitable tax return by talking rubbish so off to the paper work .....oh its nearly lunch time!!

Oh and on the running side injured my calf on Tuesday doing mile reps with club...will try running on it tonight but know deep down that it won't be better.

..make that 11 cups of tea!

You ARE bored, UmB.

WT your drunk road shoe race sounds a bit like my swim on Sunday - although I did feel a bit better after it.

Well, 14 miles done.  Very slow - 2.28 but I didn't die or anything.  I drove miles to the start of the Basingstoke Canal towpath, so keen am I to get in some long miles without scaring myself with all the hills round here. Obv had to do out and back but it was nice to be in a new area. Still managed to get v. muddy.

12 ..and yes I am...14 miles is very impressive.

10/01/2013 at 18:07

Yes it is

10/01/2013 at 18:45

9 miles at 11 min mile pace and got a half marathon a week on Sunday Arghh.

LO65, where is the half that you are doing?
Been out an done 7.5 miles, averaged 8.20 pace, according to the thermometer in the car, 1 degree, running buddy was in shorts!
10/01/2013 at 21:51
Garmin battery gave up just as I got in the car coming home, perfect timing!

Hey Umbongo sorry I missed your boring day....

AH 14 miles .. Awesome ... My longest still 11 on Christmas Eve and won't get one this weekend at secret destination ( begins with M in a country beginning with M !) ssssssh don't tell them I know .. A donut , guess who, let slip .... Exciting!

Might do track again tomorrow as no long run in sight so prepare for a detailed report Umbongo...

Hello WT nice to see you, 5 th day on wagon... Clearly wont make it through weekend. November marathon of choice this year .... Luton ... Sexy ...
10/01/2013 at 23:40

AH Great run, first one is always the hardest for me, to get you literally up and running if you pardon the phrase. Brighton for you yes, same as Ikle?

detail away St Susan about track. Morocco/ Marrakesh? You did Canne Nice last year and this year Luton? (airport) ulp?

WT - nice to see you pop up as always.

LO65 are you doing Helsby I guess? I am too. Red Club top will be on so will look out for you, but taking it easy, got another event the day before.

and yes, it was 1 degree here too Scott, cold, wet and very damp.. foggy so made you cough. nice careful 9 miles with a little fast finish last mile. Cold weather expected the next few days everyhwhere?

League race this Sunday, ~5.5 miles nearby 4 laps of a park, but 4-5 of us are running back another 6 miles after to some kindly gents house who is doing cooked breakfasts with the best Aga cooked sausages in Merseyside, plus all the trimmings. Clue - he may have Panther legs...

Very boring here running to work and back done 21 miles so far this week and need to do a long run tomorrow as race day gets nearer every day.....New shoes to try out ready for fell race coming up..


11/01/2013 at 11:23

FRC yes it is Helsby. I will look out for your red top. What club?

You just look out for an old lady with a zimmer!



11/01/2013 at 11:35

Nice picture of a shoe MCS have you got picture of the other one?

LO65 - zimmer my ars*

Well I went to club run and at about 2 miles from start my calf went again (not a real surprise) so walked/slow jog back home. I was surprised it felt so good just after one day's rest and should have been sensible and rested more but I am not sensible so didn't. I am ever so slightly piss*d off at not being able to run...must see if I can cycle with it on turbo trainer.

11/01/2013 at 11:38

You will be glad to know that my tea intake so far today has been modest. I am very excited and waiting with great expectation of Susan's track session report from this evening....

11/01/2013 at 11:51

Funny umbongo.....hope the calf improves, mine went two years ago like I had been shot in the calf not nice.

I had a brilliant TRS session last night. Just sayin'... =) I have high hopes for my 12 miler on Sunday. Think of me! Then 3 weeks' marathon training. DONE!

11/01/2013 at 20:51
Go go go Ickle... So glad you are better

Okay ... Track report ... (Clears throat )

Turned up. Lots of women. Freezing cold. Warm up exercises. Start session.
Session is intro for newbies... 5 x 2 mins on the whistle. 2 min rest between. Then after 5 of those. 4 min rest .. Nice.. Then 5 more of the 2 mins. In a nutshell ended up just past the 400 m mark first lap. By the end going round the bend , ha ha, and one the very last one went past the 500 m mark ..

Must dash, being picked up at 4 am for my surprise trip to Marakech in Morocco for a 4 night break with 5 girlfriends ... Wooooo hoooooooo
11/01/2013 at 20:52
Do you need more detail
Umbongo? Of the track I mean, not the mini break ....
