Lyrics - If you're feeling low and lost today

Alehouse - time to start a stretching and strengthening routine?

Where is birkmyre? A few missing - including Tom, haven't seen Stickless for ages, do hope all are ok.

What:             MLR with 2 x local hill
Why:              time available, in lieu of speed work
Last hard:      last year
Last rest:       last year.

Yesterday's lyrics were My Friends by The Stereophonics

Lyrics are familiar, I that's a no then.

LMH:  do quite a lot of stretching etc, but its never enough...and as we get older we need to do even more. Need an appointment with the QofP to loosen things up, and to try to break down the scar tissue around the Achilles.

What: rest day from running, although may well go for a walk
Why: caution. Seems to be no adverse reaction to yesterday though.

happy friday!
stretching - hmm, possibly the worlds worst although I know I should do more (as QoP always tells me). Ditto water consumption, I'm making a concerted effort this year to drink a bit more. I usually go a whole day without any. Just tea or coffee. Don't do fizzy drinks either. I started well today though, had a glass with breakfast and one when I got into work...
I digress...nice session RFJ, track or road for the reps? You doing Hamps Champs tomorrow?
what - summat easy
why - killed 90 minutes last night with eldest at hockey with 11.1miles steady (~8min miling: 88.02mins).Despite not finishing until just before 10 last night it was surprisingly mild out there, same again this morning.
last hard - yesterday (longest run in about a month)
last rest - 3 weeks ago

lyric - possibly

What: rest
Why: work with on call until 6pm
Last Hard: a while ago
Last Rest: 2 January
Lyrics: as usual, no

Completed my 2013 marathon entries yesterday with Cape Wrath added now to loch Katrine and Snowdonia. May have been rash but do have option of dropping back to HM in March (Loch Katrine).
Need to start pushing up the mileage again ...

Birkmyre was around on Scottish Runners on NYD

Orkney now has milk again

04/01/2013 at 11:57

Morning all. Been off to Rome for  a few days...was fantastic to spend NY there. Poundage to lose now tho.
Lyrics: Maybe
What: Haven't a clue
Why: Neighbour's funeral and catch up on Dom God tasks as OH back at work. Throw in optician, quack, chiropodist and hair (Git to keep up appearances) and it's a bit busy
Last Hasrd: Can't remember
Last Rest: Last 8 days
I'm wit Dustin on the stretching...never got it and still can't despite informed opinion and running buddies telling me otherwise. Am doing more but can't quite get that motivation!

I smelt some HADD in here so thought i'd join in

Can someone explain to me what's with the lyrics thingy ??

04/01/2013 at 14:58

open poster puts up some words, you either know them or not, but don't give the game away.
singer / song revealed later that day (or usually the next)

oh and welcome!!!

04/01/2013 at 16:13

Welcome, Mace, Brian!

Lyrics: if setting them they should normally be the first line(s) of the song, unless they contain the title, of course. Also, in theory, the song should be running related, or topical. Just say that you know them, or in my case, usually, that I don't.

What: brisk 20 minutes muddy walk, covering exactly 2k. Now for more stretches etc.

Despite having to fix the washing machine before I could go out for a run, I did manage to get out for 21.6 miles, the last 3 felt OK, despite being uphill, so I worked the pace. Then I started to realise that I might make it home inside 3 hours. That little figure was a blast from the past. With an effort, I stopped the clock at 2:59:57. That made 8:20m/m. Happy.


04/01/2013 at 16:23


What 10.33
Why belated MLR
Lyrics no

Probably could have gone further or slower only one of the cats took a shine to my sandwiches so I had to make some more losing a bit of precious run time.

Rest day tomorrow and negotiations are now open for Sunday's LSR.

Good running Blisters.

I do thank you chickadeee - no idea what yesterday was about.

Welcome Brian and Mace. Thankfully no extra weight here though I could always do with losing at least a kg prior to a race. Can't stay at race weight all the time though, nice as that would be.

Was wondering where you'd got to TC - sounds as though you had a good time.

OH - sounds as though you need to start building those long runs again.

With regards to the lyrics it becomes very difficult to keep them running related or topical (other than from a personal point of view) so mine end up mostly abstract or with some tenuous connection to something in my day.

I ended up with 11 miles this morning including two ascents of my hill rep hill. A lovely morning for it but I do need to start cutting back a little with Brass only a couple of weeks away now as I tend to carry quite a high level of fatigue.

04/01/2013 at 16:29


Welcome to mace and Brian.

Yup back having another wee nosey.

04/01/2013 at 18:19
Nice run Blisters!

Hi Brian and Mace. Yes I do have a kg or two that could do with shifting!

What: 60mins on the very hilly hills around Q'town
Why: can't resist!

No idea on the lyrics.
04/01/2013 at 18:42

Thanks folks

04/01/2013 at 18:44

oh .....


04/01/2013 at 20:31

Welcome to the newbies and also hi to some well kent faces

Lots of weight to shift here - probably about 20 pounds - it'll come off with regular training.,...

Saying that, down with some seriously bad man-flu today - never got up till 12 and still feeling exhausted

04/01/2013 at 21:27

Dustin, on the track.... yes to Jnr and me at Hants XC champs tomorrow

What - 4.25 easy
Why - Easy Run
Last Hard - Last Night
Last Rest - Weds

Take care
