Lyrics - I never said never ever

Enjoy RFJ.

Sounds like a good plan emzap.

Nothing entered other than the ultra and Abingdon so far postie.

I enjoyed watching the triathlons and some of the cycling from the Games yesterday - not going to be able to keep up with it all when we go away.

What:                      short, easy run
Why:                       I'm a runner
Last hard:               hard is relative
Last rest:                2/7

What: more rest and more on-call
Why: the way it is
last rest: all this week since Monday 

Lyrics: don't think so

Yesterday's lyrics were the traditional "I belong to Glasgow". Good old Glasgow town: hope Birks can tell us it is going well from his point of view.

What: something short and easy
Why: active rest. Longer tomorrow I hope.

Lyrics: no

Not often I get on here early enough to say good morning!

Sunny and busy so will be 7 miles for me at some point today.

Have a great weekend all and good luck to anyone crazy enough to race in this heat

Hope the thunder run goes well RFJ.

A quick 5 for me early this morning, trying and failing to avoid the heat.  Just less than 35 mins though which was good.

Lyrics, no.

Amazed by how bouncy and fluid I felt on my run this morning, just 8 miles but that took me over 100 for the week. I never, ever thought that I would be able to manage mileage like that, even if it is all easy. Mostly packing and travelling tomorrow so don't expect to be doing much and certainly not until late afternoon so lots of time for recovery.

8 miles for me done. Not as comfortable as the last 2 longer runs, my one bum cheek wanted to cramp up.

Packing now, will catch up later

25/07/2014 at 12:32

LMH, brilliant mileage. Hats off to you, what an effort!

25/07/2014 at 13:52

Let's just hope it's not all 'junk' Donaldo. I seemed to respond well to increased mileage/long runs before VLM and the ultra has given me the opportunity/excuse to take that further and see what happens. Would ideally liked to have done the peak mileage week next week but the holiday is going to mean that doesn't happen so it's a sort of extended taper though I plan to do final back to back long runs when we get home.

Good luck with that Dibs.

Afternoon all,

LMH:  Well done on the ton.

  • What: individual medley pool inhalation.  Not a good idea.  Legs couldn't handle swithch from bstroke.
  • Why:  It's my ideal sport
  • Last Hard:  N/A
  • Last Rest: Sunday

Have a good one!

thank Yorkie it's Friday

lmh, nice running - have a great trip!

25/07/2014 at 15:36
Hmmmm Yorkie!!

Great miles for the week, LMH. More than I've ever done: 85-90 was really the limit for me although that always included some quicker stuff.

What: a couple of ks easy off road
Why: not my sport. The BBC says concentrate on shooting. And the BBC are always to be believed. Now where's my catapult?

Completed moving all the bike bits from a 26" frame to a 23" inch frame; just gotta connect up the gear cables and I can start training for my ideal sport

A bit of an achievement as I didn't know one end of a bike from t'other when I started....
