Elton didn't mean it for runners though.

In the middle of reading the thread, but now realize it’s Saturday!!


Not much too add.
Age means injury prone and I am sidelined yet again.

Must post just to wish all FLMers the best. Nowt much else to say on that score.

For the rest of us, lets try an eyeballs out session on Saturday, hoping it will enthuse those doing the 26.2

Morning Treadmill,
Well I just did a big effort - not eyeballs out but I can go away to Australia and not feel guilty about not doing much running.

What: 20 miles - Mountain Road. This is only the third time I've run up this hill and it comes in after 70 minutes of running and goes uphill for about 30 minutes and then you're still a very long way from home - I've done the course in reverse a couple of times - don't really know which is worse!

Happy birthday for yesterday Jars.

Congrats nrg-b on the job offers.

All you marathoners - have a great day.

Why cant we do FLM at 5 am?

Good luck to all running and racing this weekend

I'm more than happy FLM's not at 5am Hippo!

22/04/2006 at 06:34

What: Bushy Park 5k TT plus running the course before and after
Why: I'm an Ultra runner
Last Rest: Tuesday
Last Hard: Saturday

All the best to all marathoners this weekend :¬)
22/04/2006 at 06:56

What: gonna try 5-6 miles

Good luck to all racers this weekend no matter how short or long you go.

Good luck Gobi too - should be a sprint for you.

Last Hard: Tues (but it wasn't that hard)
Last Pie: 5 mins ago (does apple pie count as carbo loading?)

Good Luck to all

morning all,

expect it'll be fairly quiet around here today with many of our rank in London or Lochaber. Looking forward to the wonderful reports tomorrow and monday to make me jealous that i'm not doing a marathon this year.

what : 3 miles easy
why : easing back in gently
last hard : yesterday
last rest : thurs

yesterday did 5.5miles @ just over 8m/m, longest since foot injury. All seems ok and pace was quickish so fitness coming back sooner than i thought :)

Evening all

Matthew - For a down week, I reduce mileage heavily sometimes by even more than half overall for week, then generally throw in some strides where I concentrate on good form in middle of runs (generally down to 40 mins to hour). Then would normally end down week with race.

New Mum - congrats on news

RFJ - well done just shame they had not measured course properly for your mara pb!

NRG-B - a cracking week - so will it be the job with the running boss all things equivalent?

Good luck to all those running FLM on Sunday

What: Planning 5 miler with a few strides thrown in.

Why: Busy week for me as started new job (5th change in 4 years!). Made it a downweek as fitted well with work situation but also as raced Monday and will race again tommorrow in regional championships.

22/04/2006 at 08:04
good morning all

Good luck to all those I haven't missed who will be doing FLM tomorrow and Lochaber.

FLM-ers look out for Team 5 - Hollky and nrg-b are not the only supporters! I'm going to try to find some pom poms to wave at you all.


What: 9-10 miles
Why: LSD
Last hard: still every run
Last rest: yesterday

I'm not looking forward to this but I know i can do 13 miles because I did 2 weeks ago.

Have a good day all.

Morning all

I've got a bit of a hangover today, and an OU tutorial to do this morning, but then...

What: hopefully a longish run - 2 hours ish
Why: haven't done one for 3 weeks
Last hard: wednesday
Last rest: tuesday

Hope all the racers finish happy tomorrow.

Congrats on your job offers nrg-b - imagine if your would be boss was into golf instead?!

NZC, well done on your long run, 30 mins uphill, ouch.

Good luck with your new job too Simon.

And of course marathoners, but I've said it enough times already.

Well wishes to the injured; have to say of my local mates more are currently injured/ill than fit and well, no wonder Kendal is the capital of sports physios.

Heard of a friend of friend yesterday who was on for 3.20 in London, went for sports massage and masseur damaged her tendon so she can hardly walk, let alone run. Can you imagine how ****** off she is; his reputation in tatters I should imagine.

What: outside climbing season officially on for those of us who aren't ice hounds: off to langdales.
Why: long runs all done so will be a blessed relief go out into the hills and not completely wreck myself, for a change.
Last hard: Wed
Rest: Mon

Good morning

NZC - Sounds like a tough run.

nrg-b - The job with the running boss sounds promising. Glad things are going well for you.

Tom - Good to see you posting again,I missed your words of wisdom.

What: Nothing
Why: Doctor's orders
Last hard: a week ago

Good luck to all the FLM and Lochaber runners.

Have a good Saturday.
22/04/2006 at 08:20
great news on the job offers nrg-b. Do you think the running Big Chief thinks he might get a personal trainer as part of the package??!

22/04/2006 at 08:23

mava - of course nrgb and I aren't the only supporters - Stellina****** is there too :-) - have a wig and see you tomorrow in the rain!

Congrats on the job offers, nrgbh!

Poppy - thank you! There's a new Up and Running in Sheen - I've cycled past it a few times and I've wanted to go in...

Also remembered BrynR was supposed to be running this FLM - really sorry you're not.

NZC - have fun in Oz!

What: BPTT 5km
Why: I love the peace and quiet of this race - Oh no...... I've just read Gobi's post ;-(
Lyrics: Yup - would have got it without the artist hint too.

P.S. Taper madness quote from Shiraz this morning - "I'm really ill" - think she's OK really (fingers crossed!) - there's a really good story behind this to do with a kid who asked to be let out of one of her lessons and she didn't let him - doh!
