Lyrics - Stop your pretending
Apt on a couple of counts since it's been raining heavily since at least 0510hrs when the sound of it lashing against the window woke me. Glad I got that run in yesterday as the weather is not looking conducive for the next few days.
Blisters - you are truly a man of many talents.
What: easy swimWhy: recovery/Mark wants to goLast hard: 2/12Last rest: 22/12
Back at work again and a wild wet windy morningWhat: just work and hopefully dispatching daughters south - one by air, one maybe (not) by boat.Why: working through to 6pmLast hard: a while agoLast rest: Christmas Day
Weather was cold but nice yesterday so got a family walk (LMH - brough of Birsay) and a run (5.7miles) - just Elspeth and I out on (JS) run
What: Just walking Geordie
Why: Still got this heavy cold.
Catch up time.
Not at work until the new year (sorry for you OH !)
What: Tennis... so probably no run.
Why: I committed to it - but I could certainly live without it! But it's a challenge to throw the ball up into a gale, chase it and try to hit it before lands.
Last hard... it's been a while. Did a nice steady 9 miler yesterday. Still not injury-free yet though.
Last rest... many days of lounging and overeating.
What: hill practice on treadmill followed by weightsWhy: nothing to do at work so can go to gym during the dayLast hard: 15/12 - 18miles for first timeLast rest: boxing day
Well, the promised run this morning never happened - got up late and now at work all day until 10pm.
Will have to run twice as far tomorrow.Sweep - what Inov8 trail shoes can you recommend? I've got a race across country later in the year and should get some trail shoes but don't know where to start...
Blisters: impressive skills - I wouldn't know what to do with one broken CD player let alone two ...Beautiful morning for a run today - no wind for once, full moon, stars ... loved it!what: 11 miles of the abovewhy: it was the perfect morning for itlast hard: at work today last rest: 23/12lyrics: no
Ok then spread my wings......
what: 2hour run, 1 with mate and 1 lonesome
why: popped button on trousers this morning Ggggrrrr
last hard: 23/12
last rest: 26/12
lyrics: not a chance
What 8 CommuteWhy BecauseLyrics no
First run in the rain for ages, which shows my current lack of mileage. Enjoyed it all the same though the legs are now aching. Rest day tomorrow and hopefuly something for Sunday. Things will stay eratic until the kids are back at school.
Oh looks like there are plenty of new faces whilst I've been away so hello to all.
hello all, and welcome to the newbies!Davey - there are a whole load of trail shoes. I suspect some of the choice will depend upon what your road shoes are. Personally I've found Asics, Saucony (and indeed innov8) good ones in the past. I use asics on the road. what - mile or two easy this morning - set up and marshalled club xc for the kids. may do another 3 or 4 easy later as youngest has swim training.why - easy day, last nights club run was just over 7 , and I was with the fast lot last rest - 2 weekslast hard - yesterdaylyric - not sure, yesterdays were Kraftwerk's The Model. Incidentally they are playing the Tate (southbank) early next year
Welcome Bri - what are you training for?
Davey - I think it's worth going to a shop, taking some advice and trying a few pairs on. That's a long shift you're working.
chickadeee - you seem to be doing quite high mileage at the moment.
Glad it went ok Alehouse. Sorry to hear that your son is looking for work again. Anything on the horizon?
Evening all.What: Just a gentle dog walk.Why: Nearly went for 15k but decided to save it for Sunday. Been feeling some very minor aches and pains but I don't want to overdo it this early on in marathon training. Still parkrunning tomorrow though!Lyrics: Don't think so. Christmas is well and truly over isn't it? Back to sensible eating...
Good day to the new faces, or those sneakily hiding beneath the duvet of pseudonyms.Lyrics: Oh very much YES. Wife was less than pleased that I wanted to do a 3 hour run today, and reminded me of the couple of odd jobs I'd promised. Like shopping, taking Small to Slimbridge, converting a mountain of turkey into a different mountain of meatballs, etc.
I almost had enough time for something, much shorter, but hey ho.
Weather forecast definitely looks like the bike in the garage is going to get a hammering. It could be a 2 film session. Winds around here are forecast at 25 gusting 50, with the NW of Scotland getting 85mph. That's going to shake branches off trees, and cyclists off their bikes.
GGG cock to sensible eating, there's still chocolate and cake left.
