Todays lyrics: Hello darkness, my old friend
Yesterdays lyrics: 'Weak in the presence of beauty' by Alison Moyet.
Why: Legs are feeling a bit tired.
OH: I never knew that re Blighty.
No gloves on today as it was milder when out. Bit foggy though. No milk left this morning in our house, no coffee for me, as I can't drink it black.
Tom - do you need more mile and if so - why?
Alehouse - hope you've managed to rearrange the urology appointment.
Pain about the milk birkmyre - I trained myself long ago to take it black, none as it was the best chance of getting a cup when out and about in my former career.
My peak flow is down now too. Off to see the nice nurse practitioner this morning, maybe she'll have a magic wand? May I have some realistic opinions as to the likelihood that I can run a reasonable (sub 3.50 minimum) marathon on the 21st assuming another week of no running? I don't need platitudes just some straight talking about what this week is likely to have cost me and how that might be compounded by further rest. I did a good last LSR on Saturday (22 miles) and nothing other than one hour on the turbo since. Was hoping to be able to do a couple of hours this weekend but that's not going to happen.
What: nothing.Why: still ill.Last hard: accepting I can't exercise.Last rest: 4/10.
Lyrics - yes.
What: Nothing.Why: Sister's birthday.Last hard: Sunday.Last rest: Yesterday.
Little Miss Happy you'll get back on track I'm sure.
Thanks Tom. Actually don't know when I'm going to be able to run again, am not setting even vague deadlines for it as I then find it more disappointing if I can't get out. Rest, fluids and more antibiotics and an attempt to stay positive it is I'm not so worried about the missed training from here on in it's the week I've just lost that concerns me more.
LMH: I agree with Tom, but would go further and do even less than he suggests! I wouldn't worry at all about the week that you have just lost...you have had a reasonable build up and got some good long runs in. Think positive thoughts! Banish any negative ones! (Wish is what I'm trying to do with my health matters...and you have helped with this, thanks!)
Urology department has been on answer phone for last 24 hours! Grrrrrrr!
happy friday all, and welcome HHI'd echo Tom's wise words, you've done the hard work miles wise, so (and I know its easier said than done) try to stay calm and focused on the race. Next week you may wake up and find everything has clicked back into place.Oh and thanks Tom, if you can tell my kids that I'm not "the worst dad in the world" from time to time, I'd appreciate it!! Good work with the mileage too!Aleh - answerphone for 24hrs ?!! Thats taking the p1ss Last night offered to help the juniors, so had 21 year 5 and 6s rep running up and down the steepest hill (on grass) within our track/pitches confine. They seemed to enjoy it, asking for second round of uphill relays that we finished with. Lovely to see them working hard, training hard and all with smiles. If only they had a communal volume control button...Ergo I rested (apart from light jogging with the w/up, c/down) Probably for the best.Today - 4mile (I hope) Why - hamstring leg stretcher.Lovely Weekend everyone!
lyrics, oh yes
lmh, oh no, hope you are feeling better soon.

Tom Good running and good music
What: 4 miles (2 miles out and back)Why: keeping it easy-ishLast Hard: last nights runLyrics For once i do
Thanks guys. I'll keep calm and carry on!
Dustin - how is the hamstring today?
Alehouse - hope you've managed to get through, if not have you tried telling the main switchboard at the hospital what's happening and seeing if they have an alternative number? Or calling and asking for the consultants secretary rather than the urology department?
Good news Alehouse - even less time to wait and worry and nice to get things started before your surgery.
What nowtWhy where to start?Lyrics yes
Too much to do before work with wet weather meant i bailed this morning though will have to run tomorrow as the bike is at work. Carp day at work as the Mail center is still not processing the work properly. This means we have to hand sort which takes a lot longer and puts time pressure on the rest of life. To cap it all the zip on my back pack broke so I'll now have to buy a new one.
manic few days, rest day yesterday
today 7m and now going out for an Indian with Mrs RFJ, as tomorrow we have been married for 22 years.........
congrats for tomorrow RFJI bailed on the run today, busy at work and just got home - drenched walking back from the station.So binning the run, but the upside is hammy feels OK (small ache but think thats underuse!!) so more stretching and an easy run tomorrow. Hopefully all OK for a HalfM on Sunday - not that I'm chasing a time.Cheers
RFJ: Congrats for tomorrow.
very funny Dustin (and Ale should be taking the piss, not them!!!!)
4k swim d&d.new record 73 mins!!
Running still restricted - looks like the big S is back!! Its a real pain in the arse. Pin cushion man had a go last night and gave some relief but not enough.
Jesus RFJ 22 years - thats a hat-trick of itches!!
