Lyrics - What would you say if I said something strange
Glad you're happy with it Blisters - it's difficult when you're multisporting. Sounds as though we'll be on pretty much the same programme from here on in. Even if postie decides to use his Abo number there are always loads around if you let it be known you're looking. I have an entry that's only likely to be used if I get hauled out of the swim at Almere again - or don't even get that far.
Postie - seriously thinking of no autumn marathon?
Paddy - entered months ago. Plan was always to focus on VLM whilst keeping a base in swim and bike then play catch up.
What: an hours easy runWhy: I want to - and weather is more conducive to biking tomorrowLast hard: resting so muchLast rest: even yesterday was nearly as good as a rest.
morning!Blisters - I was half joking, give me the trail marathons these days over road. I'd heard about Luton being, ahem, less than inspirational. To be honest I thought Abingdon was quite dull though..I have however entered the VLM2014 ballot would be nice to run it 20 years after my marathon debut and would be the 4th time I'd have got in through the ballot (although did get in one year through the old 'five rejects and you're in' method).I digress, what - 6 or 7 easywhy - all this marathon talk...last rest - saturdaylast hard - yesterdays lsrLyric - I think so
Indeed Tom, any kilometre is a good one, although it might not feel like it at the time.
Why: work then QofP
Lyrics: familiar. So that's no.
Decided to rest this morning.
Might do something easy later. r&r week (with a bit!!!).
What: rest, might go for a walk actually, heard there's a route between front door and band rehearsal space that is 12 miles long, might go and recce it as it goes through some unfamiliar lands.
Why: resting because I'm shattered from yesterday, recceing for future training reasons.
Last rest: I had a couple of days rest before the 10k. Before that I don't remember.
Last hard: apat from yesterday did 11 miles through the Pennines from Greenfield to Hadfield.
Lyrics: not a clue.
Nice one, Blisters Hope you get re-mobilised soon, TomDustin: nice marathon challenge - something different to all those big city marathons! Half-heartedly checked the VLM overseas ballot but not really keen on dishing out 80 quid. I much rather do Boston next year what: maybe 2 or 3 miles tonight; maybe restwhy: recoveringlast hard: 21/4last rest: 26/4lyrics: no
chicka - ahh, but is London cheaper to get to?
whooops - eerrr, in a way yes I s'pose BUT we were planning a big US trip anyway (involving Historic Route 66) so Boston could quite easily be included in the itinerary
What: 3.5 miles up that hill (remember the hill I wanted to conquer just after moving here? Well I did it )Why: training plan said 30-40 mins inc hills. Plus there were baby wildschwein at the top. I didn't see them though, just the big ones
Last hard: getting to the top of that hill!
Off to UK tomorrow so needed to get some training in as will be limited chances till next Monday.
Blisters, 7D great races
London marathon ballot already closed
Have a good day all.
Entered the ballot before bed half joked wondered if it would close quicker than last year it did quicker than I thought. Know I said I wouldn't do any spring marathons due to my work but its local - we shall see
Whatlan 3 miles run walkWhy: getting fit againLast Hard: yesterdayLyrics no
Managed to sneak into the VLM ballot then, stroke of luck.
my bubble has burst, vlm changed the GFA today and so I do not have a gfa, plus because I thought I did and trained for that specifically, I didnt enter the ballot so I will not even be eligible for a club place. Cannot believe how disappointed I am, I keep telling myself I still have my pb...
nice one pammie
7D 11 miles through the pennines sounds amazing!
lmh, I also feel I want to run later
what: track later
why: I want to and maybe it might cheer me up
last hard: seeing that gfa news
last easy: all week
hey ho, worse things can happen wabo.
wabo: a few others have fallen foul of the new GFA regulations. Very very disappointing for some But no-one can take your PB away
3 miles runned no walk just a few standstill pauses waiting to cross roads = slow but non stop
Wabo - So sorry
Sorry to hear that Wabo. At least they did announce the new GFA before the ballot - when I last looked at the website they were saying it would be some time in May - not that it helps you at all.
Well done Pammie. You're getting it back
emzap - the hill is conquered!!! Twice the next target?
I had an enjoyable 7 mile run and managed to pick up the pace a little for the last mile. Peak flow is back up to 490 and HR/pace relationship is about where I'd expect - does the reduced peak flow increase my HR for pace? The obvious answer would be yes but I'm not sure if there's any evidence for it.
Emz- good hill work!Wabo - that sucks, I'm sure you could argue for you to be included in the club ballot, if you were under the impression of GFA? Our club asks to see the reject slip to go into our draw, but I think there is a case for those tripped up by the moving goalposts...
What: 17.6 D+D. Windy bright sunny with heavy wintry showers. Included 7 miles up the coastal path with some wild seas, along daffodil lined lanes and by a couple of lochs. Sounds idyllic? Actually the last 4 miles back down the straight A road were quite toughWhy: last chance for a long run before Cape Wrath weekLast Rest: yesterdayLast Hard: 9 days agoLyrics: no
Gutted for you Wabo ( but there's life outside London ...)LM.H should think so (as HR rises as asthma exacerbation gets worse)emzap great it will seem much easier next time (and hopefully not a boar! groan )
dustin yes I guess so, but I am more thinking what OH says tbh...
OH enjoy cape wrath! told you my club is going en masse, not me though no hols left..
Wabo sorry to hear thatOH I'm going to pretend you didn't make that joke...it was too bad!!!
