Todays lyrics:Adventure seeker on an empty street,

Yesterdays lyrics: 'You're the best thing' by Paul Weller

Should have got yesterday's lyrics birks. You still playing the guitar?

Dibs - Alehouse is right about the taper. I tend to put the intensity in to distract my body from the fact that volume has decreased and because I can start to climb the walls a bit when I don't exercise.

What:                turbo/swim
Why:                 shorter than usual work day means I can fit it in
Last hard:         19/1
Last rest:           28/12

Lyrics - familiar but can't give a definitive 'yes'.

Well done RFJ and junior

03/02/2014 at 09:30

Morning LMH: Yeah still playing away.

Still not caught up...

03/02/2014 at 12:55

wah, should have got yesterday's lyrics too

sorry to hear meds are impacting your running, RFJ. Still a 10mile time I'd kill for, especially over a hilly course. Brilliant stuff from Jr. again.

why: I always feel rubbish after a complete rest
last hard: bits of yesterday, especially the start
last rest: Wednesday
lyrics: no

RFJ Good racing

What: 3 miles
Why: felt ok so why not
Last Hard: That
Lyrics: Rings a bell

Not an easy route lots of ups to start a nice long downhill just before  1 mile a bit flat and some more  ups  to finish contemplated run walking  but  carried on  10:54 pace  so not  quick but satisfied

03/02/2014 at 16:27

17.4 done more of a walk-run than a run.

How to get an easy negative split: head out into (F8) headwind, along a coastal track taking in a headland or two then turn back onto the road with the same wind behind you.

Full house for me in the end today. 75 minute turbo including some threshold work and short intervals; 2.8k swum and 4 miles run with Grace.

That's some wind to be running into OH!

Why not indeed Pammie.

I'm the same chickadee.

Any races planned Dustin?

RFJ: Nice time for a man not at his best, congrats to Jnr

LMH: Thats a good days training

What: 2 hours of mud plugging on the CX bike, only fell off 4 times
Why: Too sore to run
Last Hard: Yesterday
Last Rest: Saturday

LyricS Nope

03/02/2014 at 17:05

Afternoon, if I can still call it that. Still light!

What: 3.12k gentle, mainly on cinder paths
Why: wanted to run in the daylight rather than be an alley creeper in the dark. Legs wanted something gentle today.

Lyrics: yes!

Nice set, LMH, and nice long "run" OH.

Hello.  Just this minute back from a 7.1 mile run in 52:38.  Legs still heavy from Saturday but managed a steady pace throughout.

Lyrics.  Yes.  In 1988 or 1989 when this song came out, I taped it (onto a cassette) over and over again and played it several times in a row.  The rather old fashioned way of playing a song on repeat!!

Evening all,

One more exam down.. not too bad either.

Rest day for me! although the 5am get up to travel and on feet all day wasn't great for my very achey legs today! I had aches all night in my lower legs.

early night me thinks!

03/02/2014 at 20:47

good plan Dibs

Run done 8.3 miles at an aerobic pace 8m/m. Shorts in evidence.
Then directly on to the pre-prepared bike on the turbo. The aim was a High Intensity Interval Training set. 2min warm up, 20 seconds maxed, 3 repeats, warm down. Just a 10 minute slot.

Despite the wife's reminder about Andrew Marr, I didn't suffer a stroke.

Dibs, glad to hear that you sound positive.
