Hear, hear Stickless.
Ouch Pammie - hope you haven't done too much damage - it seems to be the week for it.
Ah, wondered if it were your scaphoid emzap but obviously not.
What: 30 min easy run or restWhy: busy work day/tiredLast hard: last yearLast rest: 4/2
Lyrics - no.
Great post, Stickless. Buggy avoidance needed here, too.
What: something short laterWhy: ask Stickless
Working today, but hope to get out there in daylight.
morning all and happy friday!Stickless- your posts always make me smile!Pammie , Emz - ouch, you take careAle - bureaucracy , don't you just love it. I can't say I'm surprised. Personally we should forget all the form filling and just get on with it. After all we managed to get this far without it. Maybe Tine can enlighten us, but was the fall of Empress Wu's dynasty down to filling out the wrong forms and failing to make an appointment in Sichuan province??what - possibly 3 easy, probably nothingwhy - bit tired, bit jaded, plus xc (hopefully) tomorrow, trying to keep RFJ in sight at Salisbury.last rest - 27/1 (or today)last hard - the last 3 runs if I'm honestlyric - possiblyhave a great weekend

why: schedule, tomorrow I rest!
last hARD: Last nights hills

I spend a couple of days away from the place and come back to it looking like a Chinese Laundry. Who's responsible for all those messy adverts hanging up the sides then?
What 8 with 5 @ tempo (sort of)Why overdue speed session neededLyrics no
After the Commons vote yesterdays lyrics were Billy Idol's "White Wedding"
Attempted a tempo session this morning but wound up with 5 miles at default MP. not quite what I should have but theres still time.
What: nothing just a 2 mile walk.Why: was going to run, but arm is really aching, so silly toLyrics: nope
Pammie I hope you feel better soon. Sounds like a nasty fall.LMH how's the shoulder?Stickless that made me laugh
Have a good evening all.
What: 20 miinsWhy: Stickless told me to. Several times during hte run, in fact. Just over 3k. Felt like hard work.
Love the adverts. Not.
Wonder how Tom is, and what DD is up to.
Scrap that, 3.5 km done in falling snow. None on the ground yet though. Feeling a bit more human having been able to get out!
Good on you emzap. Achey but getting better I think. Certainly not as painful driving.
Sounds nasty Pammie - hope you can still enjoy your meal out.
SC is also missing and I think it was today that he was due to get the results of his tests?
Needed to get out after work so took Grace out for a run. Was very restrained and only did 3 miles - not even my usual 30 minutes - despite legs feeling remarkably fresh - as this has been my highest mileage week for a long time. I can do quantity it seems, it's quality that breaks me.
I see from my previous post that my allusion to a clothes cleaning operation managed by persons of oriental extraction was somehow turned into a link to a flippin' web page for over-priced girlie tat clobber. Aaaaaarrgh!
12 miles tabbed out, lovely weather for it. Snowdrops, primroses, iris reticulata, camelia and the first sighting of 'ickle baby lambkins. It's enough to melt your heart and enjoy that Morrocan Lamb Teguine.
Thanks for your kind comments.
Pammie - ouch! Hope that the blue subsides, and doesn't spoil your evening. Good idea to take it easy though. A knock hard enough to black an eye will have jiggled the grey cells more than they like.
My bookmark takes me directly here, so I am unaware of the ads.
Wabo - I do indeed! Thought at the time I might some day manage to be on the other side of the fence, but it aint gonna happen now.
LMH - glad you got out. Nice when it feels good too!
Me? Er, no, it did not feel good, but I did get out, ran to work with 5 reps of Castle Hill to finish, flL (fully loaded Lucy - the backpack). Used to think somedays I had put my feet on backwards*, but this morning, I've got to say, I wasn't entirely sure they were even my own feet, or even a matched pair. The run across to Jesus Green I had to think quite hard to run rhythmically and evenly, no limpling, lifting each leg, putting each foot down, rolling along to forefoot and remembering to try and push off. By contrast, actually running uphill presented little additional challenge. Downhill required even more thought, controlling muscles. The reward was that on the level at the bottom, by the end of the 4th rep, I really felt they were my feet again.
They confirmed it by behaving in a very familiar way, totally running out of steam after the fifth ascent. Never mind. Contract made: five reps, and that at the end of week one of Training, and not an easy one. I will finish it off with another set of the home stairs before the evening is out.
*Re backwards legs: our lovely conductor explained a claim he had made in his speech at one of his colleague's funeral, that while she played Saint-Saens swan using an orange to press the strings to the fingerboard, he accompanied her sitting on the floor playing with his back to piano. "It's not that difficult, because if you sit on the floor with your back to the piano and your hands crossed over your head, your hands are actually in the right place, with the right hand at the treble end". If you say so, chief!
Nice run Blisters! and yes - cold can't quite deny the evidence of spring.
