Todays lyrics;Just once or twice, and not disclosin'

Yesterdays lyrics: Bryan Adams and' Back to you'

What:4.5M Steadily done

Why: Habit, of course. 

Re shoes; Still got an old pair of red Puma Munchen sprint spikes. Couldn't throw them out. Mt first proper running spikes and they cost £34.95 which was a fortune back then. Early 80s. Mind you had £20 of sports vouchers to help pay for them.

ale: Have applied for a few jobs and stil looking waiting. 3 weeks to go.

Back later

I'm not doing well with the lyrics at the moment.

birkmyre - hope the right thing sorts itself out for you at the right time.

Alehouse - that's nearly like not being retired isn't it?

Not sleeping very well at the moment and had another rough night last night. Woke feeling as though I've been punched in the face - just hope it's as a result of the dentist banging and poking yesterday and not a recurrence of the infection.

What:         hours easy run
Why:          starting work later than usual for a Friday so can fit it in
Last hard:   it's all a little hard at the moment
Last rest:    29/8

Lyrics - no.

07/09/2012 at 07:04

Up bright and early for me (but not for leisure)

BM - good luck with job hunting

What:early night
Why: first call out at 2:30 this morning (and on call again over weekend
Last hard: Tuesday
Last rest: Wednesday

Looks like a nice day out there

Yet another no to the lyrics!

What: 0
Why: rest day, plus leg a little tender this morning. No doubt QofP will find the exact spots later this afternoon.

LMH: yes, its nearly like not being retired, but that's fine! I no longer have the stresses of management: its only a couple of years ago that I worked six days a week and only took four days holiday all much for teachers' holidays!). I am also away from the bureaucratic stresses of the classroom and by and large can get back to simply teaching, which is probably what I do best. I have a regular 3 days a week until further notce (either way), but it is regarded as a "tough" school: at yesterday's training day several other teachers have said that they have refused to go back to it! Bring it on!
Hope the face settles, LMH.

Bright and sunny an hour its very dark, so who knows what the day is going to be like!

07/09/2012 at 09:33

ale - sounds like a challenging 3 days a week

LMH - hope tooth settles soon

What 7 with hills
Why Day off work
Lyrics no

Just lazing today with floors to clean, grass to cut and people to see.

07/09/2012 at 09:41

Yes! to the Lyrics. And a big Angel dance to you!

no running today, rest day but cycling to and from work (only 6.5 miles each way so nothing major!)

last hard: yesterday, it all seems to be hard at the moment, cannot get breathing right and it all seems an effort. still had a phase like this back in May and it passed, so to paraphrase 'this too shall pass'

last rest: wednesday (cycled again)

07/09/2012 at 10:26

hello & happy friday
Birks - happy job hunting
AleH- good luck with the 3 day week -- the teachers I know must have snared your entitlement ...
LmH - ouchie, best wishes with the teeth...

ahh I like (running) shoes. My wife & kids make me have an annual cull of both running shoes and (casual) trainers. Been in the asiscs 2000 series since 2010s but have had the odd pair of sauconys and did pick up a pair of kayanos (half price), Like Tom, I rarely spend that much, my limit is usually 60 pounds.
Spikes - xc have asics & nike, all picked up in sales for 20-25 quid, and still have a pair of nike track spikes I picked up in the states for ten dollars : 'end of range'

traing today ?  a few miles easy later
why - easy friday

07/09/2012 at 10:26
Good morning:

What: no run day
Why: antidote to the weeks efforts
Last Hard: Tuesday's handicap
Last rest: 18th August

Having just answered the "last rest" question, I was surprised that it was 20 days, though I do feel ready for it. i'm hoping to run 12M tomorrow as part of an effort to get the LSR up to 15-16M. The club do their LSR on Saturday morning: 8M starts at 6:50am (gulp!) followed by another variable length and effort run at 8:00pm. This provides a good way of building up the length of the LSR, providing I can handle the pace of the first 8M - which last week was quite hard.

Have a good day all.
07/09/2012 at 13:32

afternoon all

lyrics, no

birkmyre, good luck indeed

lmh, that sounds not nice, hope its eased up a bit?

mm, hope this phase does pass soon

tom hope the lsr goes well

what: cycled 21.2 into work, lovely ride, will cycle back later hilly longer route, perhaps 25 miles, cant wait

why: right leg doesnt want to run again so back to stretching resting and cycling!

last hard: this morning

last easy: yesterday

off to see lady gaga with friends tomorrow, really looking forward to it!

Have a good weekend all

07/09/2012 at 17:13

LMH hope the swelling settles soon.
Wabo  enjoy lady gaga
Birks  good luck with the job stuff

What: rest
Why: race and 2 lacrosse matches at the weekend
Last hard: Monday night's lacrosse training, though as I was the coach it shouldn't have been so hard!!!

Just found out I have a second interview for that job I went for last week   It will fit around my current work schedule if I do get it (1.5 day a week for my "old" company in UK) so keep your fingers crossed!

Have a good evening all.


07/09/2012 at 17:31

wabo - would love to be able to cyclle into work again

enzap sounds like a good plan before a busy weekend. Good luck on job front

Good vibes to all those racinng this weekend

07/09/2012 at 19:29
Evening all.
Back home from work in Oswestry after what seemed liked a month.

First run since the GSR on Sunday. Felt quite good after the rest.

Lyrics: please don't kill the drama.

What: 3 mile steady. 7:30/mile.

Hopefully get out of bed early enough tomorrow for a 20 mile bike ride and swim.
07/09/2012 at 19:31

That's a lot of cycling Wabo!
when's the second interview? Need to know when to cross everything!

QofP report: she is pleased with progress and could literally feel the progress from 10 days ago. More finger crossing here, also.

07/09/2012 at 20:08

Good news Alehouse.

Sorry to hear that the calf is playing up again Wabo.

Was the interview in English or German in the end emzap? Whichever you must have impressed!

Tom - so does that mean that you'll split your long run initially?

Spark - do I take it you work away from home then?

Face settled down, thank you for the thoughts. Ran 8 miles starting with my hilly x-country route this morning, was surprised how well the legs coped to be honest. A long day at work (for me) followed and I'm ready for the weekend.

07/09/2012 at 20:19
LMH - not strictly, the timing of the saturday am runs is such that the first run (8m at 8:00-8:20) finishes at 8:00am and the second run (any distance up to 8m) starts immediately afterwards. There's no hanging around - if your not there at the due time you get left!
07/09/2012 at 20:53


Cheers you lot re job hunting.

07/09/2012 at 22:03
Yeah LMH, every week just about.
07/09/2012 at 23:09

Night all,

1st week of work done............

Stressful night added to by having maggots in the bin..... YUK

Reat day here, and have park run and Test Way Relay tomorrow

Tom, you're loving it!

Postie, I'm watching.

Birks, I think that I may have these lyrics. Fingers crossed on the job hunt, it was one of the most stressful times of my life. Now ask me why I've stuck at this one through thick and thin for 20 years.

What?: 1 mile swim, slotted into a busy schedule. No surprise that I PB'd, now down to 42:15 which is almost the wife's pace.
Also a 2 mile joglet to pick up the MG from the MOT station.
Why? Tri training, building up endurance. Focus on "style" in the pool, gradual miles building running, and having fun on the bike.
Last hard?: That tri race the other week.
Next race? Sunday morning, at stupid early o'clock. I think my wave is at 0730. I'm going to take up track running I think. Maybe not.
Last rest? I'm always resting.
