Missed MickC's birthday - sorry! - but sounds as though you don't set much store by them anyway.  Good that you're feeling so much better, and that Bonnie will also soon be feeling much better. Or anyway, performing better. 

Much respect to those running on a daily basis. Don't think I could do that. 

Tracey - "girlie" press-ups have proved to be something I can just about cope with, - but definitely not more than 10 at a time, also I suspect I'm not getting nearly as close to the floor as I'm supposed to. How is the shredding going?

Hi there Hippo....if you're still there  . How is our marathon queen?


Looks like the anti-biotics are doing their stuff.  Hope you can make it for the LFOTM. Not that I shall be there, and btw you are the only one I haven't met so far.  Maybe one day I shall see you.  Many happies for your birthday too!

And a very happy birthday to you sir,  if I'm not too late.

Pleasant day for running but the wind was a bit naughty, on 4th mile blowing across the lake it gave a strong cross-wind.
0.7 mile warmup.  4 steady miles gradually building pace.  
Laps....11.15,  10.14,  9.54, 9.36.
A soft short run Friday bearing in mind the Shef 10k this weekend.

Impey-Nice progressive run there

Mick6-Sorry i didn't realise it was your birthday as well.Happy birthday

19/09/2012 at 20:04

Many thanks for all the birthday greetings. I reckon the best part was still be able to get out and run even though I'm a bit over 40 now. There was too much going on trying to manage the domestic work in progress to allow much celebration but MrsJJ and me managed lunch out today.

Family are back from Hong Kong and living in Oxford which makes seeing the grandchildren a bit easier and cheaper. They came back a few days before the start of the academic year.

Good news about the improvement. Long may it last.
I'm not racing the LFoTM 5k but I will definitely try and be there to watch the pain and suffering.

Not a bad run. It augurs quite well for the weekend.

Has the limp wrecked your training and racing?
Bombay Sapphire can help in these circumstances although it has been known to make some people limp who previously had no such problem.

19/09/2012 at 20:05

Think I'd better hide.

19/09/2012 at 20:42

JJ - think you'd better even if it's your birthday, or was, glad you had a good one.

Same to Mick - glad you enjoyed yours too.

Hi Hipps - hope you get over your injury quickly.

Busbar - respect - impressive training.

Ceal - Auckland marathon 28th October, but I'm not even thinking about that at the moment - still in recovery mode, though ran 6 miles with my Ironman friend yesterday, she's off to Kona again next week.

Then came home and did a big sort out in the garage with daughter and son. Grand-daughter no3 got a bit "past it", so I took her for a walk in the pushchair with Mae. Very tired last night, son bought takeaways!

LFOM startline is looking very good, I think JJ is going to enjoy it the most

19/09/2012 at 21:21

If you're an experienced garage sorter I need your help.

Good morning

Belated bird-day greetings to Mick6 & JJ. Given up counting yet, either of you? The maths gets harder year on year, something plus one isn't it? Maybe I'll try again next year.

NZC Can't help thinking the dog would've been better off walking

Benz I hadn't missed the wanderer's return, or is it just a flying visit? How many Ms have you done now? If it's not a rude question and especially not a rude answer. I've done 3 and plan the 4th in 2015, but you don't want to know that. Nice to hear from you though, but sorry it's a limpy visit. Impey's comment about not having met Mick6 reminded me that I still haven't met you, but hope to someday. Bestist!

aws - you know what I meant

20/09/2012 at 12:57

Hello all,
Thanks for the birthday wishes, 66 is a nice age, I'll now feel I can legitably be retired, no guilt. Flight is not until nearly midnight so lots of time to pack and do a workout.

I will definitely be there for LFOTM on the 28th. I am even registered. I am also going to the Spurs vs QPR game

I think I have met most people on this thread apart from you and NZC. This will be my fourth LFOTM so I am begining to feel like a regular. Really looking forward to meeting some of you again.

The antibiotics have really made an impact, my energy level is back up to normal, I even slept through the night without having to pee.

I did a 5 x 400 yesterday. the times were slow but I could have done more and faster so very pleased with that.

20/09/2012 at 14:15

Mick-Good you are feeling slightly better and hope you enjoy spurs game
Mick dont think those400s were slow,but your hr readings suggest you have a lot more faster reps in you.

20/09/2012 at 16:31

MickC - my OH and 3 sons all support QPR.

Your run yesterday looks rather like mine today in terms of number and distance of intervals, though not in terms of time/speed.

5 x .19 mile. In terms of minute miling, 9:42, 10:06, 9:52, 10:12, 9:40.

JJ - I have led such a sheltered life, I had to google Bombay Sapphire.

20/09/2012 at 20:42

Mad day today so didn't do the planned run. Guess there's always tomorrow.

I suppose you mean that I've led an unsheltered life 'cos I knew Bombay Sapphire?
Benz is/was a fan of Bombay Sapphire.

I agree with Busbar about those reps. Not slow and enough left in the tank.

Over-40 is accurate enough for me. I can add a year and not change the answer.


20/09/2012 at 20:54

Got rid of the tiler today. He was on a daily rate of pay and not spending enough time working.

20/09/2012 at 21:00

JJ - I did know what Bombay Sapphire was

Mick - great that you can pop over to the UK so often, glad the anti-biotics are doing the trick, nice 400s, been a long time since I did any of those.

Spent most of the day pulling weeds yesterday, no run, but son has something in store for me today - plenty of off-road I think with a nice cafe stop at the end of it I hope!

20/09/2012 at 23:03

Ran 7.5 miles tonight but when i downloaded it to garmin connect it came out that i was cycling how did that happen?.Thought it was funny as i was looking at pace etc after the run and couldn't get any data.
