A'noon peeps.

In for a nosey.

Todays training: 45mins steady.

Nothing to shout about, but consistency is essential at the moment for me.

Have a good one peeps.

What: 6M bike to and from work and pilates later this afternoon
Why: cross training and recovery
Last hard: last night
Last rest: Monday

Lyrics: yes, not exactly music of my generation, but I got them!

Naughty clink , no typo i'm afraid

And yes Sharkie was marshalling in my race,

Yes met up with Sharkie (great to see you again) and a few others course was slightly different due to the concert  thats  happening next week, Just the 1st km (the rest was the same) no long downhill in the 1st km. Plan was to run at a good pace  (tried to keep up with someone whos pace i knew might  carry me through to 24 something, kept her in sight for about 3km legs felt like jelly at 4km but still tried to push it . 2 sub 5 min kms the first and the last. So just the middle 3 to work on

Split time Avg. HR
4:52 154 (75%)
5:06 165 (83%)
5:09 166 (84%)
5:10 167 (84%)
4:56 167 (84%)

HR not up as high as i would like  so there are assumed percentages but a max test is somewhere round the corner

Initially i was disappointed, but 25:15 same time as last month but after a post race talk i'm satisfied. My  key race is still 2 months away so plenty of work to do and this was a no taper race

Well run Pammie - nice finish.

Sharkie - ride-on mower!! I wish!! I think you are winking at me!!

Thanks everyone for your healing vibes, but I think I'm getting quite used to being this lady of leisure. Went to the chiropractor, who said left side of lower back very stiff, a bit like concrete, right side much more flexible. Did some manipulation, but I didn't hear anything click, and he said that he'd see me next week.

Made a lovely carrot cake with cream cheese icing and went to a friend's house for a card evening - anyone play canastta?

It's funny. just as I'm out of action, other half is raring to go - I think he is winking at me too.

Good luck to all those racing or doing long runs this weekend.

Evening All

Not a very good mile from me , really wasn't that interested. I managed 6:15ish I think it was and was barely breathing hard. I then cycled back and managed to fall off my bike .

All in all I have had better nights.

<Before anyone worries I only bruised my ar*e. > 

Nice run Pammie

well done Pammie

no doesn't sound like the greatest of evenings Joe H

q busy the last couple of days, but managed to get some mileage in. Calves still q tight but easing day by day.

yesterday 5.5 miles at lunchtime at work in 38:15....mean HR bit high at 155
tonight 3 miles in 20:40, varied pace from 2/3rd of a mile at sub 6:00 down to doing the last mile in 7:30

So will be looking to have a go at Penny Lane 10K on Sunday morning.
While the Castles relay leg last Saturday hasn't (quite) left me completely wiped out, I suspect 2 efforts of that magnitude in successive weekends will be stretching a point....we shall see.

Clink, thanks for that comment  -not to mention the Ivor Biggun one also

20.....your response gave Mrs S a laugh! Those photos alas provide ample evidence that I don't do class....but I can do commitment.

And on that note, with today's lyrics in mind, I'll just f-f-f-fade away.........

Night all,

Needless to say the 40 and 50 somethings got My Generation by The Who

Flying home tomorrow, last 4 flights to go!

Hello everyone

A good week for training - the race has definitely given me back some mojo.

What - 10 miles
Why - LSR and Toronto is a possibility
Last hard - today
Last rest - Wed
Last lyrics - goodness knows

In other news, we have decided that one way or the other, we are moving to Canada Aug 18th. The kids need to be in school for the new year which starts 2nd Sept. So 8 weeks to go. I will probably have to come back to finalise the house sale and serve out notice at work, but we are off. I'll still be touching base here of course.

Have a great weekend
