What 6.7Why rehabLyrics yes
Later start at work today has let me push the boat out a bit further. Think yesterday was my legs telling me not to get to carried away and am glad that for once I listened.
I thinkl that both time and position are important as one qualifies the other.
As for London, I reckon it's a bit of a marmite event.
A 6 tomorrow perhaps ?
Catch up soon
Have a good one.
Thanks Paddy - and hope your scan gives you the answers you're looking for.
Postie - I think that listening yesterday probably helped with the longer effort today.
NZC - I hope so too, but also need to remember that I won't melt if I get wet Mind you it's rather dull and windy here this morning and not very inviting.
Awful night last night - not what you need as prep. Went to bed about 2230hrs and was woken around 45 minutes later by the heavy bass beat of very loud music. Thought it must be the nightly entertainment finishing off then decided it was probably a little late for that. At 2330hrs it was still going strongly so throwing my pj's, trainers and Montane jacket on I went out to investigate. Found a cottage with music pumping from every orifice a few doors up. Curtains open, tv on, lights blazing. Marched up and knocked loudly on the door - no response. Thought about wandering round the back but that would take me to the side of the lake and it suddenly dawned on me that there could possibly be a large gathering of drunken 'yoofs' round there so went off to seek help. Couldn't find a member of staff or contact telephone for 15 minutes or so then realised that there should be a security presence on the main gate so walked up there and found someone who drove round and solved the problem. Of course by this time I've been wandering round in the dark, adrenalin up for over 30 minutes and can't settle. Also keep thinking that I'm hearing the music start up again - which was imagination. Eventually slept but have a filthy headache this morning and don't know whether to go and complain to the Parc staff and seek reassurances that they're on top of it or just leave it and hope it doesn't happen again tonight?
LMHDoesn't sound good, hope tonight is better!
AlehouseKillerton is only a few miles away, Parkrun is a pretty route but not one for a quick time. Of course, it isn't a proper 5K so even if I got a PB it wouldn't be one, if that makes sense.
What: RestWhy: ScheduledLast hard: 1 dayLast rest: 5 daysLyrics: Think so
Family visiting soon, so Saturday long run will probably happen on Monday.
40 Killerton doesn't sound as if it would give you a quick time is it like its what it says o the tin
LMH Oh dear hope tonight will be better thinnk i must be coming out with sympathy with you as got woken at 3am rain can't stop that could i get back to sleep came down o the internet probably not a good idea. Tried to go back around 4am no joy came down again. 6am tried again yes mmannnaged an extra 4 hours sleep almost
NZC Figured to do something long as first 10 days of Sept will be working i owe someoe some time and its payback time so those 10 days will be short runs so making the most of my off days
What:3-4 miles later with some hills "kenya hills"Why: HillsLast Hard: a bit of yesterdayLyrics No
Quiet on here today.
LMH sorry to hear about your rubbish night, I hope tonight you get some sleep.
Why: It's raining and I'm meant to be on holiday so missed 7am circuits.
I wimped out of my 4 miler today as i'ts been raining really hard all day. I'm also knackered for no apparent reason so thought a break would do me good. Did do a 3 mile walk to shops and back though so not sitting on my ar*e all day!
Hopefully parkrunning tomorrow, if it's not raining, it makes it hard to get out of bed on a Saturday morning!
Enjoy the crunchies.
What: short warm up then 43 minutes at 5:10 pace. Sadly that's for kms not miles.Why: running with L35 (former babysitter...not mine LMH, the kids' !) and her L60 mother with the latter setting the pace...not a lot different to her 4:52 pace for 5k the other night and today was on tougher terrain. Must tell her off for slacking on Weds!Last hard: ?... although some of the off road rutted terrain was hard on my feetA futher last hard: seeing a photo of myself running in Wednesday's race...serious weight loss neededLast rest: 09
LMH: hope you can channel the adrenaline during your races! And enjoy!
Wabo: have you met Cleo yet, I wonder?
alehouseLast rest 2009? Either I've missed a rather impressive streak, or a dramatic typo!
Impressive streak by Alehouse 40.
Thanks for the good wishes. Probably won't get on here tomorrow (unless it all goes horribly wrong) so will catch up with you all on Sunday. Hope anyone else racing has a good one.
40: not missed a day since Dec 09 when I started running again after having 9 weeks off (and putting on at least a pound a week!), after having broken my shoulder (again) in the October. A lot of the runs have been short...initially some of the runs were only about ten minutes, although my minimum is now 20 minutes.
Still struggling with the weight...am now hovering around 10 stones...would like to hover around 9...and when I raced more seriously I was between 8 stone 2 and 8-7...didn't put much weight on until I was about 35, was 9-2 on 40th birthday and 9-7 on 50th. Think I need to cut out food and drink and run more to shift it!
alehouseThat really is impressive - sorry your achievement has gone unnoticed by me 'till now!I'm also hovering around 10 stone currently - feels alright to me - but that represents a recovery from the 8.5 stone I was after my last illness rather than any decline from a state of serious fitness...
