Since RW appear to have deleted us  I have started this new thread with a link to the old thread above.

I'll start the ball rolling in typical sub 3:30 style.  Here's my weekend:

Saturday:  8.5 miles running, 12 miles bike, 1 bottle of white
Sunday:  10.5 miles mountain running, 1 pint of beer


29/07/2013 at 11:44

Mmm ... That's a bit harsh as I've just come back from Ibiza consuming far too many units to count and doing bugger all 

but back in the swing today with a 13.5 mile run ave 8:45 and collecting my bike from the doctors later so hopefully gears won't slip now so I can head out and catch up on the miles!

29/07/2013 at 11:44

Oh, and I've made us a bit faster!

29/07/2013 at 11:54

Well...that's only right 

29/07/2013 at 11:54

Hello new thread

Internet is down at home so:

Friday night - entering the numbers & times on the computer at the Worstead 5 followed by a bottle of white

Saturday - watching / supporting the Anglian Ironman followed by 3 pints of beer

Sunday - 17 miles with 8 @MP followed by sunbathing followed by sea swimming followed by 3 pints of beer

29/07/2013 at 11:56

Definitely white wine weather. 

While I was running this morning all I could think about was having a beer later 

29/07/2013 at 12:05

I'd wondered where the thread had gone?

Nice running Minni, but the drinking side leaves a bit to be desired... See below.

AA - Straight back in with a 13.5 miler after a holiday... Impressive.

My last week...

0 miles as left knee now does a double-click when moving through the normal (walking) gait, accompanied by the patella jumping up and down in time to the clicks, following by me nearly throwing up when it does this!

2 x bottles of Jack Daniels, 3 x bouteille vin rouge, nearly 1 extra stone in weight since May due to a combination of self-pity and self-loathing.

Appointment Friday to discuss MRI results better be good, otherwise i'm gonna eat and drink myself into oblivion!

29/07/2013 at 12:10

Ok Oompa - you win!  I hope you get somewhere on Friday. 

AA/Spoons - top efforts! 

29/07/2013 at 12:12

Spoons - X-post. Nice miles. I obviously can't read back to catch up... Are you mara training with that mileage?

29/07/2013 at 12:17

hello new thread,

I can now post off my phone

Oompa - how annoying about your knee! hope your mri is useful results so you can start rehabing (the knee

just back from 3 miles, still sticking to snail pace but the knee is behaving.

saturday - zero exercise, lots of sunlounger time, dinner date with Mr Kiwi involving 1 bottle of wine

sunday - we attempted a 'big' bike ride - Mr Kiwi's pedal broke at mile 7, cue turning back for home and taking refuge in the local beer garden, we managed 12 miles in total....

29/07/2013 at 12:38

Kiwi - I think rehabing the knee is gonna be quicker than the other rehab that i'm going to need soon! Did Mr Kiwi's pedal break miraculously coincide with passing the aforementioned pub??? Glad to hear that the knee is behaving itself.

Oh, one last thing... I've just remembered that the knee that they MRI'd isn't the one that is now giving me grief, so that'll be another wasted appointment then!

Now where did i leave that bottle of Absinthe...

I like what you guys have done with the place  

Not a whole lot to report training-wise this weekend:

Friday - many beers
Saturday - 2 mile sea swim (without wetsuit -didn't think i could swim without one!), & 10 mile hike through the southdowns.
Sunday  - bugger all!

29/07/2013 at 12:54

Beers are in the fridge. Pizza will be delivered soon.

And you had a birthday Z!  

Perfect timing with that pedal kiwi. 

29/07/2013 at 13:38

yo, brilliant stuff!

And the new fred enticed a few missing forumites back - hello Zuvai and Oomps

Oomps, that knee stuff sounds . If my knees made such noises I'd drink myself into oblivion too

Bet Mr. Kiwi tampered with that pedal pre-ride ...

Spoons: nice long run.

I feel soooo lazy   mojo hasn't come back. Another lie in this morning. Ouch. Maybe I can get out tonight, but sun is out again. However, it's only a cool 24 today and I've run out of excuses

29/07/2013 at 13:44

Yay to the new thread.

Happy belated birthday MrZ.

Oompa- nice work on the drinking front. I like your style.

Back from the TR in once piece although slightly sleep deprived. Epic epic epic event. Total mudfest this year which made it even more fun. Didn't do too well on the drinking front I'm afraid... only managed a few ciders but made up for it last night with a bottle of wine. We should really organise a bigger outing next year.

I'm supposed to be resting today but might pop out for a few easy miles after work. Another 10k planned for this Saturday.

29/07/2013 at 14:11

Chick - No mojo = More mojitos!

Hi Bro, excuse my ignorance... Whassa TR???

29/07/2013 at 14:21

lol, Mr Kiwi's pedal problems started in the midst ofa country park, no pubs in sight. he had his little bike repair kit with him, it had come loose, so he tried to tighten it with a spanner but no good, I offered the services of my hair tie but it made no difference. so we headed home, with him kicked the pedal back onto the bolt every couple of metres and me running after it when it fell off on the hard shoulder of a rather busy road. bloody thing, we needed a drink by the time we reached the pub which is about a mile from home

29/07/2013 at 14:46

Minni-welcome to your new home-as I only need 3.20 for a GFA and will be lucky to even do that in the presnt circumstances am I allowed here with the target being 3.15? Oh my weekend- Fri 8 miles 7.54, 3 pints. Sat Nothing ( bought 7 chickens),Sun-swam 1.5k half bottle red(not at the same time).

Today-8 miles on the TM-first TM since I cant remember. Did it as a test before seeing the Dr tonight.

AA-thats a god run to clear the holiday guilt

Oomp-hold it together there mate-the MRI is nearly there and with luck set of a treatment plan to put you back on track

MrZ-welcome back stranger-good swimming-there were swimmers yesterday at Crosby who did 3.5k without wetsuits. My son did the 1.5k with me without a et suit and beat me by 2 mins. Ive decided to get some technique coaching this Autumn

Bro-glad you enjoyed the mudfest and see you are still focused on that 10k time

Kiwi-thats the trouble with cycling-you have to rely on a machine and your engineering skills

Chick -just go out and run without a watch-take some cash and buy a drink and ice cream stop and enjoy the view anf just go with the flow

29/07/2013 at 15:15

Oompa - last week was week 1 of marathon training

Next marathon is this weekend so I've gone for a 2 week programme with a 2 day taper this time. Will see how it goes......

29/07/2013 at 15:20

Spoons - I think that might be too long a programme... You might get bored of all the training!
