Hey little sister, what have you done?

Great track. Perhaps it really is best if I post it on the training thread rather than events.....

Morning

Blisters: Brilliant Track Great singer, I'm a massive fan.

What:4M Steadily done mainly off road due to icy paths.

Why: Being careful

Coffee calling so cvatch up over that.

Tom and wabo: I used to watch Dixon with my grandpa on a Saturday night in the mid 1970s as it was one of his favourite TV programmes. Just wandered back down memory lane...

Morning all,

Got the lyrics today often sing along (badly) when it comes on the radio.

Hope you had a good holiday GGG.

Not sure if I'll fit anything in for the next few days, as have a hectic weekend.

Hope you all have a good day today, and weekend.

Morning sweep.

Morning!

Not going to be the day I expected: found out late last night that the funeral for a friend is today, 2 hours drive away. I had been told it was next Friday. I hadn't mentioned it earlier, but this is the guy who I ran with at Uni and had won the English Schools: whilst he had been given three months to live, he barely made three weeks, which is perhaps a blessing. He died last Saturday, the day before his 56th birthday.

Physio will have to be rescheduled.

Morning.

Sounds as though it could be a difficult day on several fronts Alehouse - look after yourself.

Blisters - nice swim set.

sweep - I find a run usually does help it's just harder to get out there when you feel like that.

What:           30 minutes easy run or rest
Why:            time limited, throat sore, excess calories from yesterday to use
Last hard:    2/12
Last rest:     1/12

Lyrics - love it.

07/12/2012 at 07:46

morning all,
AleH - make sure you give him a fitting send off, sincerest best wishes for today
Blisters - good work in the water , and with the Christmas shenanigans
GGG - sounds like a good plan
Sweep - well done for getting the run in

What - either 4 easy if I can get out at lunchtime, otherwise rest
Why - out tonight with a few pals so won't have the opportunity later
Managed 2x almost 3m loops on road (2.95 on google maps) while eldest had ladies hockey training last night. Finished off with 6 laps of the track cool down. All at steady/easy pace, but needed to be as was cold & windy with the added bonus of driving rain for the last half of the session.Averaged about 8.15/8.20 m/miling.
last rest - if not today, was last Friday
Last hard - Tuesday
lyric - yup

Morning all

Yesterday's lyrics were Venga Boys Witch Doctor, awful song, awful band, but it's what was in my head!  Sorry again for the confusion though!  No relation to the quality of the doctors here by the way!
Chicka  hope your Mum is ok? Regarding cakes, there is a Hairy Biker recipe that doesn't use raisins, I'm sure it's online somewhere...
Ale I hope today goes as well as it can.

What: a wander round the town and Christmas market
Why: guests from England are here.
Lyrics: yes

Good news is I have an appointment with a specialist on Monday, fingers crossed she'll be able to tell me what's going on.

  I think we need to start having some photos of these home made cakes!

Have a good one all.

Great holiday thanks sweep. emzap that song did get stuck in my head. Google reminded me it was a band called the Cartoons who had stupid plastic '50s hair. Today's lyrics yes.
What: Nothing.
Why: TFI Friday. parkrun tomorrow, gym Sunday morning is the plan. It's Brockwell Park's second anniversary and a nearby pub is opening for breakfast and mulled cider!
07/12/2012 at 10:29

AH...ouch, deepest sympathy and hope today goes as well as it can.
Emzap...good luck with appt
Lyrics:Yep
What:Core sesh
Last Hard: This morning
Last rest: Yesterday
Back to gym for genmtle treadie and step sesh to keep OH company the tapoer for tomorrow's 20K

07/12/2012 at 11:22
AleH - a sad day indeed. I had a similar experience last year. Club mate, top bloke, top runner died at age 56. Church was overflowing...people standing in the drive.

Lyrics - pre google no, post google still no.

GGG - enjoy your parkrun tomorrow - how many have you run to date? My score is a miserable one!

Dustin - good to be able to fit in a worthwhile run whilst on taxi duty.

Managed 6.1M this morning. State of hamstring a bit better than expected as was a bit uncomfortable on getting up this morning. I put that down to a more "powerful" stretch (towel stretch) on it yesterday. Time for a few days on the foam roller methinks.

Have a good day y'all.
07/12/2012 at 11:31
Wish I could do more parkruns, only done the one, work always seems to get in the way...
07/12/2012 at 11:36

I think I will make a Christmas cake next year. LMH, that exotic version sounds yum! I would probably lace it with rum to complete the Carribean theme 

Emzap: hope the appointment goes well.

. That's a tough call, ale. Never easy when close friends die, especially at an awfully young age. Hope your mate gets a great send-off.

what: 10.5 freezing miles
why: toughing it out (although I'm very close to joining a gym ... only my hate of treadies is still putting me off a little)
last hard: the frozen ground
last rest: Monday:
lyrics: Yes! Used to fancy him rotten when I was 16 or 17

07/12/2012 at 11:37

Tom - I found the foam roller helped my hammy, as did a tightly rolled up small towel under the thigh (as long as your sitting on a hard chair/bench)
touch wood - 2 weeks niggle free here....

07/12/2012 at 12:10

chickadeee - think of the treadie as mental strength training. My record to date is two hours on one but I wouldn't like to do it often. If you like rich, moist fruit cake you definitely need to make yourself one next year. What do you traditionally have in Germany that's similar at this time of year?

Good news Tom.

Sounds like you're sorted Dustin.

Early start tomorrow Straycelt? If so - hope you have a good one.

Anyone else racing this weekend?

An unexpected window of opportunity opened this morning so I managed to fit in a good progressive 30 minutes on the treadie. Feel much better for it too.

07/12/2012 at 12:55

afternoon all

oh alehouse, how sad. It makes you sit back and think.. I hope all goes as well as it can

07/12/2012 at 12:57

yep lyrics just read again and pop!

07/12/2012 at 13:23

What: Just baking (for tomorrow night) and sea kayaking Xmas night out
Why: It's that time of year
Last hard: skating on paths last night
Last rest: Wednesday
Lyrics: no

Alehouse: a hard day but hopefully some good memories

Maybe a run in the morning although forecast not good (heavy rain and Westerly gales)

07/12/2012 at 15:29

Well, back from the funeral: in fact apart from the sombre moments it was actuallly a FUN-eral if one can have such a thing. Celebratory and amusing! He would have approved!

A walk to the pub is needed this evening!
