Lyrics - Even if I am in love with you

Forecast for the weekend getting worse every time I look. Stop looking is the answer then I guess! May have to be imaginative with training next week, sap things around and accept that it may be a lighter week mileage wise.

Hope you got out for your run Dibs and are soon feeling 100%.

What:                  an hour on the turbo
Why:                   only have an hour and don't want to run again today
Last hard:           19/1
Last rest:             28/12

Yesterday's lyrics were Turn Up The Sun by Oasis. A bit of wishful thinking on my part.

I've also overtaken cyclists running uphills before, I guess it must be quite demoralising for them!

Nice miles banked from several places yesterday, decent pace too Don.
Hammering down last night for U11 coaching, at least we were on the track rather than the grass (mud/puddles). Did about 4 or 5 laps with them but that was it.
Had planned for 45mins myself, but youngest had homework to do and wanted to retire to the hockey club cafe after her training finished (while eldest had hockey). It was a tough call, but warmth and coffee won the day.
Today - run into work from Wateroo, same again tonight
why - couple of easy days needed
last hard - Tuesday
last rest - technically december, but was only 2k at easy pace yesterday
lyric - don't think so

Have a great weekend - who's racing?

morning all

Dustin I think I will race but shall it be park run or Essex league, prob the former as I am still not 100% - it must be nice to run into work!

What: swim later and sauna

why: a mate has got me a pass for their gym

last hard sunday - what a lazy week!

last easy: all week

I need to snap out of this feeling...

have a good un peeps

Wabs - well its only a mile or so, but beats getting drenched in work clothes..
good luck with whatever you choose

07/02/2014 at 10:44

yeah, weather is dire, even here. So glad I switched sessions and did the 14 miler when it was dry.

what: 9 soggy miles
why: why indeed
last hard: get going
last rest: Monday
lyrics: no

07/02/2014 at 13:30

What: maybe rest

why: working through the day and last rest Sunday although not a bad day here

last hard: monday

lyrics no

07/02/2014 at 14:05
pretty sure I have never been passed by a runner going up hill

what : easy 4 miles run
gym for stretching and sauna

last hard : Tuesday
last rest : Monday 30th December

Dustin And  I thought I live close to work.

Keeping my runs  short at the  mo have to remind myself  be patient and not do too much too soon I'm guilty of  both

What: 2.87 miles (did walk partly up steep hill) Why: building fitness Last Hard: That  damn hill Lyrics No

Had planned on a mile(or 2km) out and  back but on way round thought I may as well carry on  in a loop but it meant running up the hill I ran  down on  Monday Its a toughie have  run  up it  before  but  not today so it was a run walk up it though


One day


07/02/2014 at 14:18

Afternoon all,

Dibs:  Are you in SA?

  • What:  4 big hills
  • Why:  I wanna be a runner again
  • Last Hard:  Pretty tough today; the new AF says "hard"; the old AF says "it's only hard whan you throw up at the top of the hill"
  • Last rest: Monday

Have a good one!

Pammie - not sure if you're joking but Waterloo is the end point of my 60 minute+  train commute...I still have to get across London!

07/02/2014 at 16:15

Wabo - maybe you're still not 100%? Take it easy and listen to your body.

I managed to find an extra 15 minutes this morning so 75 minutes on the turbo. Finished work unexpectedly early but resisted the temptation to take Grace out for a run even though it was dry and not too windy, I've run enough miles this week.

07/02/2014 at 17:12


What 10ish commute

Why miles in the legs

Lyrics no

Tomorrow is to be a proper rest day as I have the day off work and don't run on Saturdays. Hopefully will be rested enough for Wokingham on Sunday. I'll keep an eye out for you Gobi but the people giving me a lift don't hang around afterwards. If I don't see you before I hope all goes well for you and thee pacing works out.

07/02/2014 at 17:30

Greetings all,

managed to get out before the rain came down....

4.5m at MP, good run

meant to be at XC tomorrow, but may do LSR instead, as XC will be a killer with the rain that we have had and dont really want to pick an injury up for the last XC... will make the call tomorrow

Take care

07/02/2014 at 17:35

Dustin - sorry I read the its only a mile you had  to run thought that was the whole  commute


07/02/2014 at 18:21


What: 3.4k, gentle on cinder paths, in the dark. Nice afternoon here but back too late from work to take advantage .
Why: easy run...listening to the body, and trying out new sparkly purple laces (and the shoes that they are in). They seem very fast...or would be if someone else were wearing them.

Lyrics: no

07/02/2014 at 18:32

I ant purple sparkly laces!

Postie - I think that Wokingham is cancelled.

07/02/2014 at 18:50

Evening again!

What size laces are you, LMH?

Yes, Wokingham is off...and whilst it might be a blow to Postie I suspect it will mess up Gobi's plans even more!

07/02/2014 at 19:03

I wouldn't mind purple  sparkly  laces they'll go with my  purple shoes

07/02/2014 at 19:28

Cheers Dustin.

7 miles tonight in 52:24.  Slightly more sedate than last night but felt equally hard!

Off to sunny climes tomorrow but might try a run before the flight

Lyrics, it's a maybe from me.

07/02/2014 at 19:34

Where's the warm weather training Don? I take it that it must be half term. One week to go for me.
