happy friday !
Don - good luck with the race
Birks - enjoy the recovery run & well done to jnr
Well yesterday was strange weather wise.
6 done at lunchtime, first half in torrential rain, but coming past the palace the sun appeared and was shining brightly for the return leg.
Not so in the evening - helped putting the U11s (50 or so) through their 200m track reps. I don't think it stopped hammering down, with intermittant hail. Blue hands, and soaked to the skin. whats that quote ' there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes choice' or something. Quite.
Today - something like Birks easy later or maybe nothing.
Why - plan a LSR tomorrow early doors
last rest - 13 days
last hard - run wise, Tuesday
Like LmH I had to do a double take on the lyric, still not sure I know

Donaldo - hope half goes well

10/05/2013 at 09:26

Don - tear it up tomorrow.

8 miles with 12 X 400 d&d. Nice. followed by gym curcuit.

Also had a good TT on the turbo last nite.



10/05/2013 at 09:30

I hope he gets what he needs to get on his course then birks. Is it a little stressful or does he take it all in his stride?

Dustin - sounds tortuous. The youngsters sound good though - training through that.

Sorry OH

I must admit I tend to dread my turbo sessions Paddy but I do think they do me a lot of good and I'm always surprised at what I can manage when I put my mind to it.

Found a very little window of opportunity this morning so did my 30 minutes easy, albeit on the treadie for time management reasons. Feel better for it.

10/05/2013 at 09:49

LMH: No he seems to take it in hi stride. He has worked hard the last year and studied hard the last few months. Credit where it is due.

10/05/2013 at 10:00

Youngest off to school prom tonight. Why do they grow up so fast?
Donaldo, good luck for the half and OH enjoy the Wrath of the cape.

Might wander up for a Park Run/stroll tomorrow. Surely I can set a new benchmark and only improve from there? Never done a 5K so could be fun jogging at the back

10/05/2013 at 13:40

last hard: Saturday
last rest: Wednesday
lyrics: no

Congratulations Pammie - must be a relief.

Glad you're feeling better chickadeee.

10/05/2013 at 18:01


What 9ish
Why dropped car off at garage before work
Lyrics no

Congratulations Pammie

Car went in without central/remote locking and has come out with a broken spring

10/05/2013 at 18:41


Well done Pammie, and I trust we will be saying well done to some racers over the weekend too.

Doesn't sound great, Postie!

Nice work yesterday evening, Wabo, and hope that that is reflected in your 10k. And with fresher legs I suspect you will reap the benefits of the marathon training over the shorter races.

What: 16 mins or so
Why: To get from A to B! It was actually shorter than planned: from my car to a garden centre, then got lift back.

Lyrics: no

10/05/2013 at 19:23


Pammie: You got the job well done

postie: Oh dear..

Been wet since lunch time. Glad I got best of it when running this morning.

10/05/2013 at 20:27

congrats pammie!
2-3 easy miles done (20 odd minutes)....

10/05/2013 at 21:00

Well done on the job Pammie!

Have a good week, OH.  

Cheers for good luck wishes...tempted to hit it hard tomorrow but undecided.  

Rest day today and I don't know the lyrics (surprise!)

Sat on my backside all afternoon and into the evening doing wrok. I prioritise it into what is going to get me into the deep doo dah first, and sod the rest. Progress made.

Training has been a nil though.
Bike tomorrow, at least 50 miles. I'll see if I can make it more, but that will involve heading off on my own after the gang depart. That won't be easy.
