Todays lyrics:Written in graffiti on a bridge in a park

Happy St Andrews Day to any fellow Scots on here.

Cold and frosty one again, brrrrr.

5M Fartlek done and I'm just thawing out

Wabo: Yeah I did like the video of Addicted to Love

Paddy: Good to have you back mate.

Back later.

Warm and wet in Dubai, chucking it down complete with thunder and lightening, my garden is flooded! 

What: 5 mile race in 32-51 d & d, 12th overall but only 3rd M50, go figure.
Why: Its Friday I race on Fridays
Last Hard: That was, though running in the rain was fun!
last rest: Thursday. 

Lyrics: not a clue.

Morning! Happy St. Andrew's Day!

Yesterday's lyrics were Brass in Pocket, The Pretenders.

Today's lyrics: no

What: a walk, stretches, exercise bike

Enjoy your day.

Morning. Happy St Andrew's Day.

Should have got yesterday's lyrics - and probably today's.

OH - there's light at the end of the tunnel that may not be an approaching train then?

Straycelt - I expect Mrs SC is happy that it's the 30th?

Some fast old guys out there DD. It's forecast to feel like -3C when I run on Sunday - contemplating wearing something warm under my club vest!

What:                     short easy run
Why:                      taper/lack of time
Last hard:              17/11
Last rest:                23/11

Lyrics - no.

What: rest but no holiday here ;-(
Lyrics: no

morning all,
should've known yesterdays lyric, never really quite 'got' the Pretenders though..todays not sure either. Great memories of early gigs...I was perhaps 2-3 years too young to go to some of the punk ones, but as Blisters mentions the Ants' double drummers were incredible. Some of the raw energy I found (and still find) more entertaining than the polished production/marketing of today's wannabe x-factorites.
I tell the kids that when we went to see JLS it was the first gig (!) i've been to with no instruments on stage (and no mosh pit).

training wise 6 solid miles yesterday in just under 43, today 2-3 easy
why - xc tomorrow
DD - well raced !!

have a lovely weekend

What 5km, Hyde Park
Why Its the last friday in the month
Lyrics no, but will i kick myself

Today will be interesting

Morning all,

Went out last night but was sensible and stayed with the slowest runners, managed 9.5 miles with no complaints so think I was just being over cautious.
Rest day today.
No for the lyrics... Again

Have a good day everyone.

Oooh, forgot my other news... Missus has got tickets for us to see Robbie Williams at wembley next summer, never been to anything like that before!
30/11/2012 at 09:19
Lyrics - no, despite having googled them. I'm not particularly keen on this band.

Gigs - the last live band I saw was the Levellers a couple of weeks ago. I've seen them several times over the years and they've never been less than brilliant. You really can't beat the buzz of a good gig!

Running - not yet been out today and I have no discomfort at all at the moment. My guess is that I'll manage about 15-20 minutes easy before it starts to become uncomfortable....I think(?) things are moving the right direction.

Back later

God morning, good morning, good morning. Happy St Andrew's Day from the Scotsman in Wales and happy Movember shave off day to all Mo Bros and Mo Sisters out there. LMH, OH was ecstatic to see it go!
Lyrics: No but will kickself later
What: Gentle plod
Why: Because I need one
Last Hard: Tuesday's Fartlek
Last Rest: Yesterday: Spent all day in hospital having battery of tests so no chance of exercise Fortunately all clear and heart good to go so will be back in full swing soon
DD good running...let me know your secret!

30/11/2012 at 11:34

Indeed Happy St Andrews Day (but no holiday here)

Not going for Decembeard then Straycelt
Elspeth has stated she will leave me if I ever shave my beard off again
(last time was 1982!)

30/11/2012 at 11:42

Happy St. Andrew's Day

And Happy belated birthday, NZC

Paddy: good to see you pop in again.

Terrible day at work yesterday but today it has calmed down again. Phew. It's the office xmas party. Very much looking forward to that. Knee is loads better. If I'm not too hungover tomorrow, I will run. Bring it on

Back to report on Athletic endeavours! Managed 3.4M of concentric circles. Didn't have any significant discomfort until just before I stopped (cause and effect). Didn't realise how far I'd managed until checked mymap. I've got to be pretty happy about that...this time last week I walk back off my run thinking that I was facing an inactive three months. Hopefully that scare will have knocked a bit of sense into my head.

Got to share this....extract from marketing info on the SKINS compression base layer vest "SKINS A200 Thermal Long Sleeve Mock Top uses a unique Body Mass Index anthropometrical algorithm to take into account the wearer's chest size to guarantee a good fit"....thought I might cut the sleeve off and wrap it round my hamstring, or would that invalidate the algorithm?

Brilliant one Tom, an algorithmic undergarment.
Lyrics no
Brass Monkeys yes.
Huge job list, must get on or she'll moan at me.

30/11/2012 at 12:11

OH the two tone moustache in ginger and white not matching the barnet was bad enough (As LMH can verify) without stretching to a multi-coloured beard!! Done it before and it was not a good look
Chickadeee, be careful at that office party and we want a full report

30/11/2012 at 12:18

Just wondering if I'm being time efficient planning to jump on the treadie at the gym on the way home for my 30 minute run - or just a wuss?

Good progress Tom.

Not at work today then Blisters?

30/11/2012 at 12:45

If you don't jump on the treadie and then cba kicks in at home, then you are a wuss
