Just sorting some lyrics Paddy!
If giving the half a try tomorrow isn't going to disrupt any long term plans if it goes wrong then you may as well race.
I'm trying to decide whether to to play it safe on the turbo or risk a ride on the wet roads with more rain forecast.
Hope the fell race went well Wabo - they hurt!
Alex - have you recently moved?
What: long bike or turbo/in-laws arrive/short easy runWhy: weatherLast hard: deciding to take the rest day yesterdayLast rest: 24/6
Lyrics - vaguely familiar but not enough for a 'yes'.
PaddyIndeed, I thought you were just doing a half?Sounds like a good decision, hope it goes well for you.
What: RestWhy: Between yesterday's track on tomorrow's long run, also helping with club race todayLast hard: 1 dayLast rest: 2 daysLyrics: Yes, for a change
Rather looking forward to the arrival of some hot weather!
Good luck tomorrow Paddy! Maybe you can go in with no pressure and that will help!
LMUH - Nope, not since January 2010 when we moved from London to Chepstow! (Back home to Wales!! ) We have a caravan on the Gower in West Wales and come down most weekends. I'm quite lucky that I get to run in several different locations. I'm in the van now with the greyhounds. The girls have gone Horse Riding, in the rain.
What: 45 mins coastal run (on road)
Why: Even in this weather it's a beautiful place
Last hard: Guess!
Last rest: yesterday
Lyrics: as usual, no, although they look vaguely familiar for once
On the subject of lyrics, anybody watch Glastonbury yesterday? My mate had his sleeping bag nicked...hilarious.
Oh, and Paddy/40 minutes - enjoy your rest!
Paddy:Geordie woke me up at 6 Haven't run yet, however a 5.6 Miler later, perhaps
Yesterdays lyrics were: 'Help me Rhonda ' by The Beach Boys.
Raining here again, on for most of weekend I think according to forecast.
Was up, but just couldn;t think of lyrics, sorry peeps.
All the best to the weekend racers.
Paddy Best of luck if you do the half toorrow hpe all goes well
Btw have you seen this irish sea starting over in Dublin cycling then a row across the Irish before hiking up Snowdon. Best of luck to them
Chickadee Wow great time i wouldn't mind coming last with a time like that. Kids eh
Gobi - wow sounds interesting best of luck with that Well done on the win
What: 3.74 miles run walkWhy: buildingLast Hard: Should be today but Not in agesLyrics no
My last run walk i shall be joining the dots next week also adding strides before the fun starts the following week.
Rest tomorrow but off to holler at Horndon on the Hill tomorrow for the 10km
Pammie ... justs een your profile on fetch. Did you used to live in Linford then?
I did (and went to St Clere's ...)
Alex - I love greyhounds! Have had several, one show bitch that I went to Crufts with but mostly ex-racers, my current girl is mostly a whippet x greyhound (and I have to say - all the better for the little bit of a mix). How many/what colours/ages etc are yours?
Chickadeee - that sure sounds fast to me.
Well done on the win Gobi.
Pammie - you're building back really nicely.
Well, I couldn't bear to be inside in the end so despite the gloomy forecast and grey skies I decided to set off on my long ride. It was getting greyer and windier as I went on but I was actually quite enjoying myself - but then the heavens opened. I persevered for a while but it just got heavier and the visibility was getting restricted so I gave up and headed for home and the turbo so 1 hour 40 on the bike; 2 hours 20 on the turbo then 30 minutes on the treadie (did this afternoons run as a brick due to the arrival of the in-laws). Glad I managed to get it all in as we're off out to the Indian this evening!
Never joined Linford joggers, but I think I knew a few people who were in it. Do the surnames Burst or Bayfield ring any bells?
Are you from Corringham or Stanford?
Well done on the win Gobi!
Chickadee - I agree with everyone else, I'd be happy with that time too.
Pammie - good progress! Looking forward to how you get on over the next few weeks.
LMUH - we have 2 greyhounds - Blaise is 5 and a big blue boy. Tigger is 3 and a big brindle boy. Both are ex-racers. Albeit not very good ones! How old is your girl? I've seen some lovely lurchers at the charity events that we go to. I find them all to have wonderful personalities! Great dogs...terrible running buddies though. Tried with Blaise a few times when I started last year and he didn't really like it much.
Great endurance effort today btw - you've earned that Indian!!
I did my 45 min run. Did 5 miles in 45:13 @ 9:02 min/m. It was a good effort, just ran on feel and was a good push towards the end. Slower run tomorrow now.
what - about 95 secs behind Gobi at Eastleigh this morning + 3m and 4m on the treadmill so 10 for the day.Why - coming in 9th and a hard runLast hard - see abovelast rest - yesterday
Lyrics - possibly as seem familur
Well done on the TT and win Gobi
Nothing again for me today (starting to become a habit ... ).
I'm starting to feel more cheerful and more like the old me since I stopped caring so much. I was even singing and dancing around the kitchenette earlier on.
State of play is that I have a 5k in 2 weeks that thanks to various problems I do not have the preparation for. In less than 3 months' time I am doing P Company challenge.
So, my idea is tomorrow that I can put the race in September on hold as far as preparation goes, and just do a wee test to see how possible it might be to do this 5k. People might say I have no chance, but there really is no harm finding out, and it's not really going to affect anything.
I'm thinking that I will do 400m as quick as I can, walk it off for 10 minutes then try 1 mile as quick as I can.
You just never know. I actually feel like I have some speed in my legs at the moment. A nice night's sleep and you just never know.
