Lyrics - The silicon chip inside her head

Hope it's better today RFJ.

Glad you're home safe OH - what's next for you race wise?

Still your hamstring Blisters?

Hope you're not too stiff or sore today emzap - do you have the long drive to do?

What:                 just a swim
Why:                  trying to be sensible in the taper
Last hard:          not adding a little run (even though I have time)
Last hard:          20/3

Yesterday's lyrics were Spring by Tracy Chapman.

Lyrics, yes. Definitely short of sleep today. But at least it's not cold, wet or blowing a hoolie. And the end of the month means it's a bit like a Friday.

What? hmm. Probably zero, unless I can get some bike.

Been really busy working and had no internet one day

Lyrics: Yes.

Catch up soon.

I climbed Ben Vorlich this morning, a munro.  Will post a couple of pics later.  Was chasing an inversion but missed it although I was above the clouds mostly. It was a 6 mile walk taking 2 and a half hours.

Ran 6 miles as soon as I got home - strangely, felt great and ran the last 3 miles in less than 21 minutes.  A good day of exercise so far!!

Lyrics, yes, I think so.

Hey dibs, I made a new friend yesterday and she's your double - an uncanny likeness.

Afternoon all,

  • Last Rest:  Yesterday

Have a good one!

Here is the mountain I climbed this morning.

 A view from the summit, amongst the clouds.  You can see it's 'partner' munro, Stuc a Chroin, appearing from the clouds.

Look carefully at this one - see the other summits peeking through the clouds in the distance - shame it was so hazy at times!

 It was a good walk but I preferred my run afterwards!


31/03/2014 at 14:49

Don you always make me jealous with your pics!

31/03/2014 at 15:33

Donaldo - That was my first come back Munro in similar conditions (after a diagnosis which might have meant never seeing a mountain top again) - mid 90s

31/03/2014 at 16:03

 Just short of finishing line last week - not looking my best!

31/03/2014 at 16:29

Lovely pics Donaldo. I'm just back from a long walk with Grace - would really have preferred to be out for a run, it's a beautiful afternoon here, but trying to be good in the taper.

You do look a little out of it OH!

I don't really like to ask but if anyone can spare even a couple of pounds I'd be most grateful:

31/03/2014 at 16:39

What: 1 hour swim (no distance recorded)

Why: easy easy... poor knee

Lyrics: Hell yea I do!! Great song!

OH- Nice one!

Don- Amazing photo!

my knee is driving me insane!! I WANT TO RUN!!

31/03/2014 at 16:51

OH, great pic that, I've yet to meet an athlete who photos well when running!

I have told not to run again and to give up on the hills but I still plod on.  I'm glad you beat whatever the diagnosis was!

31/03/2014 at 17:02

I'm another in the 'you'll never run again' camp - doctors, what do they know

Cheers Dibs, much appreciated - hope your knee will play ball soon. Are you icing it if you think it's fat pad inflammation?

31/03/2014 at 17:06


What 15+

Why tabled zero yesterday

Lyrics yes, taper madness or a general feeling LMH?

Great photos Donaldo and OH

Did yesterdays today with the last 5 attempted at target mp, was out by between 10 to 15 secs but was carrying 4.5 Kg in the backpack so not too concerned.

31/03/2014 at 17:26

LMH- yup -frozen spinach ....
