RFJ: sounds like you will be busy.
NZC: please be careful if your not well
Ale: If rest is the answer embrace it
What: 17 miles across the desert tracks Why: marathon training, its seems I have become a runner againLast Hard: yesterdayLast Rest: Saturday
Time to catch up on your reading and get those xmas cards written Alehouse!
I like it when I revert to being a runner for a while DD but can't keep it up for too long or the aches and pains get me.
Sounds as though you're going to be busy RFJ.
I am so tired and ache from shoulders to knees due to the in-laws living an what for us is a very busy road and having a somewhat less than supportive mattress on the spare bed. Heavy frost this morning and high winds forecast for Weymouth but I won't get an opportunity to run until this afternoon anyway so hopefully by then it will be a little better. Regardless I'm looking forward to it.
What: short, hopefully easy, runWhy: I want toLast hard: sleepingLast rest: 25/10
Lyrics - yes.
Morning ale DD and LMH and its cold and frosty one up here. Quite decent frost on ground.
Yesterdays lyrics: Drive by the Cars.
Todays lyrics: Yes.
Ref the web site, we have a web master for that and is seen as a different role - thankfully, but as I have always said and I do get frustrated about it sometimes, but all our clubs need volunteers to do these roles, so see it as an important part that I can play in the club and a little to the community.
Just back from parkrun and 2nd 4th place running at Andover, 3 secs faster than last week in 19:22 but felt tired and should be pushing closer to 19 now, however was very cold and ground sticky.... that did not stop Jnr gaining another win and another PB 17:3X
now of to London for a Worship Central Concert / live recording and a day with Mrs RFJ
Lyrics - no
Swim and 5 miles done. Actually very calm this morning after near gale force winds and sleet through the night.
Lyrics, yes, a major streak of 2 in a row.LMH, I enjoyed visiting Weymouth, and would time my visits so that I could tag along with the running club there, Ebdon Heath Harriers I think it was. Primarily to link up with forumite rival Hilly, but she's moved now. There's still some great runs to be done, especially the coastal path.
Bike ride for me with the Tri club. The thermometer said it was a whole 1 degree C, and I put on every layer I could think of, including the new Pirate's Buff. If anything I got a bit warm/ damp inside my jacket, but not too bad. 43 miles including quite a few hills, all done in 3 hours dead. It's beautiful in this neck of the woods, the trees are exploding with autumn colour, absolutely glorious.
Good luck all you racers and recoverers. I'll read back later.
Also on a lyrics roll: yes!
Bramhall parkrun in 19.51. My favourite parkrun course so far (think I've done 11 now), undulating and quite technical, but with some good bits to really open up on around an old Tudor hall. Massive field, 350 finishers, they have more than 400 some weeks.
RFJ: sounds like quite an undertaking, good to get busy sometimes. Good run by yourself & RFJr today too
Blisters: 1 deg here too when I turned out, it was 12 on my night time run in midweek, real cold snap eh?
WhatIY and bakingWhy: was going to run but have a lacrosse match tomorrow and don't want to over do it after ThursLyrics: yes
7D wow, 11 different courses, that's good going!
Cold here today only 3C now, forecast for -4 overnight brrrr
It's 12, I just had a quick count. Bolton, Bramhall, Heaton Park, Marple, Pennington Flash, Preston, Princes, Oldham, South Manchester, Woodbank, Worsley Woods and Wythenshawe. Burnage will be next, then after that I think I'm struggling without a ride. Might be able to get a very early train/bus to Burnley or an expensive train to Stoke or Barrow. There's one feller from down south done 100 different ones! I'm a bit of a parkrun evangelist, such a good thing, wish the government would fund it harder given the tie-in with Couch To 5k and the push for public health.
Alehouse: would agree actually. I did have a good warm-up this time though.

7d: how realistic is it to get to some of the Yorkshire parkruns, particularly Huddersfield and Leeds? Can't remember when holland trip is. Let me know when you are thinking of burnage and I will see if I can hop and watch! That now completes 24 hours in bed apart from bathroom visits!
Good question. I just had a quick look and I reckon I could make the three around the Sheffield area, probably the Huddersfield and Bradford ones too. For Leeds I'd have to stay at a friend's in Manchester but that shouldn't be an issue.
Will let you know re: Burnage, won't be in the next three weekends though. Hopefully you'll be coming on strong by then.
nice parkrunning RFJ & 7d!NZC: if you feel this bad at the mo then don't run. Look after yourself.Tom: decent mileage-2 C here this morning and beautiful weather but no running . Went shopping and my calf started cramping whilst queuing at the tills. Ouch. Enforced rest with a bag of peas ... cramp area very sore now. Still hoping that perhaps I will be able run tomorrow.
hello all,NZC - chicka is right, you need to do whats best for yourself, but either way, best wishes (& good luck??)Tom - nice mileage, good PR 7d, and good run DD!RFJ - good luck with the role, I've just taken on road running secretary duties for our lot, just sorting out races for our club champs!Is Wabo xc-ing today?what - 6 miles easy this morning as youngest was swim training : 3 degC, gloves for the first time, but nice running weather once I got going.Why - training & LSR planned tomorrow Good weekends all
Definite drop in temperature, even with the move south, and quite high winds but a relaxing and enjoyable 3.5 miles run with some beautiful views. Haven't run by the sea since Orkney but no seals to spot here and no company. Much warmer than it felt walking around, definitely still shorts weather and had to take my gloves off pretty quickly despite my hands being very cold from walking around all day even though I was wearing gloves for that too. First mile was a little fast as legs were fresh, then they remembered that they'd run a marathon a week ago - nothing too bad though.
emzap - just as well to be sensible.
chickadeee - hope the cramp is sorted enough to let you run tomorrow.
Blisters - hard to get it just right on the bike but I'd rather be a little on the warm side than cold and miserable.
