All the leaves and brown and the sky is grey

Or maybe it just feels that way when you are back at work and your family is still swanning around on holiday.  

what: 60mins easy round the bays. Warm but windy.
why: standard Monday recovery session. My running partner raced a half ironman yesterday so it was actually quite an easy pace for once!

LMH - good luck with Brass Monkey. Half marathon is a good distance I think.

Why: Firest run in 2 weeks due to cold/lurgy.

Lyrics: Think so

Hi guys,

missed the weekend's exploits ...

Sorry to see that Tom is suffering from yet another bout of injuries

Some hard core racing by RFJ and Dustin's extended family

Enjoy your rest day, LMH.

what: maybe recovery later
why: I feel like I could do with some air - officially it's a rest day, but a leetle jog won't hurt
last hard: speed work on Saturday ( 3 x 2 mile reps )
last rest: 1/1
lyrics: yes

54 miles altogether last week

07/01/2013 at 14:53

Afternoon all

Dustin High Wycombe "oop north"!  Where was she playing, I grew up there.
RFJ  good racing
Ale hope the achillies consultation goes ok today

What: rest
Why: driving back to Germany last night was very knackering and my whole body hurts from dancing in heals at the wedding on Saturday night!
Last hard: see above
Lyrics: Yup

parkrun on Saturday was very slow.  I'm not sure whether it's due to the slippery conditions, or my condition...I'm hoping it's not too much of the latter...

Have a good day all.

What 15.24
Why missed yesterday
Lyrics yes

Almost an Lsr into work this morning as I was unable to run yesterday, poorly OH. Starting to feel it now so easy 7ish tomorrow probably.

07/01/2013 at 17:48

Evening all,

Been busy with work, and most of my spare time has been fitting in plenty of running, so not getting online as often.

Nothing today though, did 8 miles yesterday, and gotta be up at 4am tomorrow for work, so rest day it is!

Club sessions start again tomorrow, so will be back to normal from now on.

Hope everyone is well.

07/01/2013 at 17:49

oh, nearly forgot, yep for the lyrics

07/01/2013 at 18:50

Lyrics - yup!

Ran 3 miles in 25:46 - nice and easy - still not completely over the 'flu' I had at the weekend so sweated like never before while running! 

Was back to work today too - am now Deputy Head of my school so it was a very busy in-service day for me.  Fairly tired this evening!

07/01/2013 at 21:16

Lyrics - Yes (2 days on the trot that must equal my record....)

What - 5.25m Club run
Why - Easy run
Last hard - sat
Last Rest - Weds (my rest day)

Take care all

Lyrics, yes.
Easy training day: managed 35 minutes on the bike in the garage. Minutes, not miles. That will do.
