Hope for good weather too. Just leaving. Should be fun, unlike last night in Cardiff. Better team won tho!Back later
Tom/ NZC Fully understand the need to hang in there with the young quick guys on club nights even if only for awhile.
AH: Hope it eases off today
Yesterdays bike ride was surprisingly straight forward, start at 0530, cycle 100K to the start of the mountains sat in the peleton with only one "pull" at the front. Arrive at the point where the road goes upwards, peleton falls to pieces within 200 metres! Spin up the mountains, hurtle down the other side at 50MPH+ to the Indian Ocean, form a small group of 10 or so riders and fight our way into the headwind up the coast to the finish. Total of 220K / 137 miles in 6 hours 39 mins, average speed 32.6KPH or 20.2MPH, About 6500' of climbing, bar b que, cider, bed.
What: Nothing unless I trot laterWhy: See aboveLast Hard: The last two hours into the wind yesterdayLast Rest: Thursday
Morning you lot
Yesterdays lyrics:'Could you be loved' by Bob Marley. Heard it in HMV on Thurs at lunch time.

hope you had a good one, LMH!RFJ: crossing my fingers for you tomorrow. Pre-race nerves are good DD: monster-ride. Bet you walk like John Wayne today Coming down with a cold methinks. Rotten timing. Hope to keep it at bay for another 18 hours so I can race tomorrow ... well, it's no A race, so if I feel shit I will simply jog around. Enforced rest today though in the hope that Echinacea and Vicks First Defence do their magic.
What: not a lot (bracing walk on beach)Why: on call and trying to be goodLast rest: yesterdayLyrics: no
LMH no earache (see why above!)Hope all went well for you and StrayCelt
DD that sounds like some ride!RFJ calming vibes and hope all goes to plan tomorrow
DD - sounds like a great ride.
Alehouse - I wonder if a specialist dressing may help promote wound healing? Have you had the stitches out?
chickadeee - rotten timing.
Hope it all goes well tomorrow RFJ.
sweep - hopefully today's rest will have benefits tomorrow.
Sounds sensible Tom.
Woke this morning with yesterday's sinus headache still very much in evidence and a raised RHR - I suspect my tooth is the cause. Still HR wasn't high enough to mean that I shouldn't run and it was an opportunity for some faster running rather than a PB attempt so I could still achieve that.
Managed to identify Straycelt at the start, nice to meet you - he was dressed for a long day - hope it went ok, sorry I couldn't stay around to see you in. We were chatting away when the gun went so had a leisurely start waiting to cross the line then I was frustrated by the many slow runners in my way - totally my own fault and teh race is chip timed anyway. Still managed my usual fast first mile then just tried to settle in. Was working consistently though the mile splits were affected by the turns, slight inclines and short stretched into the wind (not that there was much). Just ran pretty much to feel, noting the mile splits and HR for the first three laps then managed to pick it up a little over the fourth lap to finish quite strongly. Looking forward to getting the 5k splits once they're online. Worked out I just had to keep sub 8s for the last lap to come home under 1.45 and crossed the line in 1.42.25 Garmin time.
Nice to meet a fellow forumite LMH and yes it was a long day. However Ram in his second half-marathon (1st was Cardiff last month) was paced home sub 2.10 and chopped over 12 mins off his "PB". He was a happy boy and I was blinking cold. Interesting 4 lap and a bit course with 4 hairpins and a few other bends per lap. Very exposed and weird crosswinds. Glad I took enough of the right kit for the plod.DD...big respect, don't think I could do 20mph for 1 hour on a good day let alone across that sort of terrain! AH..hope it calms down and heals a bit better soon.Now off to check the other rugby scores, contemplate a beer and wonder about a brisk run tomorrow
Well done LMH and Straycelt
Congrats Stray and LmH, and good luck tomorrow RFJ!
