Blisters - training is over rated but fresh pasta stands you apart from other men.

What's next for you race wise DD?

Off darn sarf for pre-xmas socialising and present swapping this morning so exercise opportunities will be limited and the weather doesn't look conducive to running.

What:               probably nothing.
Why:                see above
Last hard:        2/12
Last rest:         14/12

Lyrics - yes.

happy friday everyone
Ale- thats a real bummer, my thoughts are with you
really mild darn sarf today LmH, didn't even need a coat walking to the station this morning
what - 5 easy at lunchtime
why - clear the head (again), fortunately yesterday was the last of the work related socials
last rest - a week ago
last hard - Tuesday

lyric - I think I do

21/12/2012 at 08:31

Ale sorry to hear about your friend.
DD  wow, great run last week!
Blisters  fresh pasta, surely that is training, just cooking training?

What: attempt at a few miles in the snow hopefully
Why: I haven't been out since last Monday due to biopsy and wound dressing.  It's still on, but much smaller and easier to handle.
Last hard: the last 10 days of nothing.
Lyrics: Don't think so.

Christmas tree is up, snow is falling, definitely got a Christmassy feeling round here.  Best news is, now I'm off antibiotics I can go drink the gluhwein at the Christmas Market

Have a good one all.

AH..tough times, thoughts with you.
50 miles on the bike DD, I find that bad enough in a car!!
Lyrics: Unsure
What: Haven't a clue,
Why: Waiting for update on Paddington trains from son (Returning to Wales for Christmas)
Last rest: Yesterday
Last hard: Week past Sunday
Last day at work today so get some training in from now until 28th then off to Rome

21/12/2012 at 12:09

Afternoon, just!

What: 3k walked in 31 minutes, off road, although I was also naughty!
Why: included 4 x 60 (metres, not minutes or miles) very slowly run. Not allowed yet so don't tell the phys! The very slowly run bit actually seemed easier than walking very fast, but I won't be overdoing this and will have to judge any reaction to the calf, rather than the Achilles.

Lyrics: no

That sounds more promising, Emzap.

21/12/2012 at 12:12
AH - scary news...dangerously close to that age myself

Got a streaming cold - it seems like my brain is leaking out of my nose. Hope to get out for something this afternoon, prpbably 5-6M easily.

Lyrics - yes

Back later
21/12/2012 at 12:40

21/12/2012 at 12:46

What: enjoying my daughters' company
Why: they're only home until 28th

21/12/2012 at 13:15
Wabo: you'll have to do the training and find another mara instead!
21/12/2012 at 14:20

Sorry to hear that Wabo.

Alehouse - don't go undoing all your good work so far

OH - sounds good.

emzap - being able to drink gluhwein is definitely progress.

Dustin - you're right, we had blue skies and even a glimpse of a strange yellow thing on the drive down however heavy rain forecast for all day tomorrow so I may take advantage and nip out for a short run once lunch has settled.

Tom - don't push it if you have a steaming cold!

TC - hope he's soon home safe.

21/12/2012 at 16:18

Tom: cold or is it the dreaded man-flu?

Tinselcelt: enjoy the trip to Rome

I got beaten by the CNBA fairy this morning. Bitterly cold north-easterly winds were rattling at the house and I couldn't face going out there . Tomorrow is another day or maybe I feel brave enough to face the cold when I get home.

21/12/2012 at 16:20

LMH: I'll be careful! It was a very gentle experiment and won't be repeated until Christmas day at the latest! Not sure what a blue sky with a strange yellow thing is? Apart from when I walked it has rained all day. I walked part of one of the local parkruns: I say part because the rest of it was flooded too deep to venture into.

21/12/2012 at 16:54

Alehouse - the river had been over its banks at home too but it seems somewhat drier here - though it did manage to rain for a little while whilst I was waiting for lunch to settle.

chickadeee - you're allowed the odd day off

Just five miles for me - but more than I was expecting for today. Just hope I can find a window to get out in tomorrow.
