Lyrics - When you wake up
Hope the weekend's racers have god ones.
Like Blisters I'm hoping to get out on the bike today but the forecast isn't good and we had another load of heavy rain come through last night so I may be better off on the hybrid as the roads are likely to be dirty and wet. Mind you the forecast for tomorrow is even worse
What: bike or turboWhy: need bike timeLast hard: 19/1Last rest: 28/12
Yesterdays lyrics::'Jump' by Van Halen.
Thought I might have been the one staring the thread today. The lyrics can wait.
Lyrics: quite possibly...or possibly not!What: an hour off road is plannedWhy: I must like getting wet and muddy!
Enjoy Parly Hill, those partaking. Other venues are available.
Yes to todays lyrics:
Got them in my head now LMH...
All the best to the racers.
What: Maybe 3 miles easy a bit later
Why: LSR tomorrow
I am planning to do 13-14 miles tomorrow. Also thinking of taking some food with me. I don't have any gels/Gu. But there is a vending machine in the hospital.. reckon taking a bounty or something and munching will help me legs feel a bit more lively towards the end?
Still shopping for a bike. I will get a racing bike and clip on aero bars, for when I do tri. Other than that... not any further forward!
I love my Specialized too.
Dibs you'd be better off with some jelly babies/wine gums/dried dates or flapjack type thing really.
Hope the asthma settles quickly chickadee - must be nice to see numbers like that.
Two and three quarter hours out on the hybrid for me today, wind was picking up as time passed but it stayed dry.
Thanks for the info re bikes Gobi, I will shop around and make sure I get a fitting.
.5.5km (28.30mins). Was tempted to do my LSR today, until I started running! Feet sore, windy as hell and I needed to pee! tomorrow it is.
Biking today, Group 3, wet roads, but at least we haven't got winter. Looking at the weather forecasts it seemed that Orkney was going to get wild gales twice.
Meanwhile, some gentle negotiation with the Household Manager may be appropriate to get permission to enter an appropriate event. Or two or three.
Yep more gales coming tomorrow
what: 3 miles run 4 miles walk ( and no swim)
why: forgetting everything including mojo
What: a pleasant 60 mins, 50/50 on/off road. 10:34k. Ran very easily apart from my breathing was rubbish on even the slightest incline. It was also quite mild, and I thought there was no wind...until I turned for home! Wore far too much!Why: Saturday habit. Dibs: as LMH says, although I have never used anything on my long runs. And what's a bike?
4.8 miles in 34 minutes. Just took 3 days off to rest my sore knee and it seems to have helped although it was still a bit sore. Speed was faster because I was fresher I think.
Jelly Babies and chocolate for me.
The only time I have ever tried a gel was before Bwlch Y Groes (killer hill at 21.7) on Snowdonia. Not the best of times to try: had to get marshall to show me how to open it, then splattered it all over my beard!At least there was a silver lining to the torrential rain that followed!
haha I had a similar experience with Gu OH, was so thick and it got stuck to the roof of my mouth, I couldn't breathe through it! Must have looked rather special!
Donaldo Your speed astounds me!
Evening from the not so cold Arctic (only -6 here...).
What: rest dayWhy: ached all over this morning, no idea whyLast hard: staying warm during yesterday's runLyrics: yes I think so
Great run there Chick, hope you are ok after your breathing problems though.Dibs I use power bar as they are all that's available here for some reason. They're quite good though, especially in the summer. In the winter they are a bit gloopy.OH you made me laugh, now have an image of you eating the gel!
Tomorrow is a 20 km day, or an attempt at one anyway. It's far too slippy to run it all outside, so may have to do it on the treadie...may die of boredom though, so we'll see how far I get.
Have a good one all.
I like High 5 gels though I can use Powerbar and Hammer ones. GU made me sick as did Torq - just have to experiment and practise really. Caffeine gels are a definite no, no for me.
Enjoyed watching the athletics - didn't spot birks though. I guess he's probably out celebrating Burn's Night. How about you Donaldo?
