Todays lyrics:I have a picture pinned to my wall.
This song was being played in one of our local supermarkets last night.
What:4.5M Steadily off road for me. Okay run.
Why: Up and about, session done
Dry, mild, no wind
Coffee calling and catch up time
I have the in laws arriving for the weekend and today is MiL's birthday so I'm baking cakes and cooking a specila dinner, tomorrow is Mark's birthday and we're doing a 100 mile sportive then going out for dinner afterwards. In laws leave Monday morning so it's going to be a busy weekend.
What: 30 min easy runWhy: hope to be able to fit it in somewhereLast hard: 16/6Last rest: 27/4
Lyrics - conjured up an image.
Sounds a really busy weekend you've got !
We've got friends coming over for lunch today
Happy Birthday tomorrow to Mark
My walls were covered with pics and posters when younger. My mum wasn't chuffed about a certain Madonna 'Like a Virgin' poster circa 1984 or 85 !
What: a gentle 20 mins off road
Why: a couple of minor niggles after running on the concrete on Thursday, or they could still be from driving or QofP.
Just about to watch the rugby whilst keeping an eye on the builders.
What 7 with hilly bits hardWhy guilt from ThursdayLyrics no
100 mile sportive for a birthday celebration? LMH at least you can justify eating vast quanities of Marks birthday cake after.
Averaged 6:44 over 7 miles this morning as I had forgotten to reset my alarm before going to bed last night. Thought that I could use the early start to make up for missing Thursday run. Pushed things as hard as possible picking upa stitch at various points.
OH: muscles!! Carbo-loading on chips I can understand, though! Enjoy tomorrow!
Yesterday's lyrics: Frank Sinatra, the way you look tonight.What: 8.4 miles with OHWhy: it's in the planLast hard: for some reason that was, just never got goingLast rest: 20th JuneLyrics: nope
Hope the weekend isn't too stressful LMHGood luck tomorrow OH
Have a good one all.
54 miles cycled followed by 2 mile run. Running felt good - cycle wasn't up to scratch.
Medium run tomorrow before easy week coming up.
OH enjoy the HM tomorrow
Postie - nice average
Ale - you'll be accused of proper training soon!!
LMH - Eat well after that effort
hi, good luck tomorrow LmH, and hope the birthday celebrations go well.What - my first UltraWhy - Marathon came out at ~28miles last hard - todaylast rest - ThursdayGiants Head Marathon, near Dorchester. All off road, loads of hills (~4,500ft climbing, I think) and blisteringly hot. Ran quite steadily, eased off on hills (thats walking), but picked up on the 'undulating' bits. My cheap watch ticked over to 26.2 and we weren't anywhere near the finish turn (I also went past a random '20 mile' marker at 21.1) Last push on the final downhill and as my watch ticked over to 28.05, crossed the line in 4.47A quick straw poll of garmin wearers had between 27.8 and 28.3, so somewhere longer than 26.2. Not complaining, brilliant race, stunning views and aid stations amicably staffed and loaded with drinks cake and at mile 21, cider.Legs fared reasonably well, no cramps, no tightness, perhaps because I ran it sensibly?For comparison, the winner ran it in 3.36ishBBQ and beer now....
Well done Dustin
I just entered the 3 countries marathon...starting to feel it was a mistake already...
Excellent Dustin, well done
Enjoy Harris HM OH
Just over 13m for me today, with Parkrun in 4th place and a personal course PB at Andover from 19:05 to 18:59, only taken 2 years to get sub 19 there.... only need to knock another minute off to equal my parkrun record at Basingstoke set several years ago.....
Wow, some interestingly decent training going on, and some with numbers attached.
A 100 mile bike ride whilst you have visitors? That's impressive.A 28 country mile marathon? That's impressive too.Paddy's 54 mile and 2 mile brick by comparison is remarkably feeble!And RFJ's course PB almost passes into insignificance. Although I'm pretty sure that his lungs were hanging on the pavement.This thread will be accused of getting serious again.
Me? Ah.Yesterday was a nigh on disaster. Bike broke, but got a mile swum in a local lido.Today, chauffeur duties for University visits. This one was rejected. Do I feel as though I had wasted my day? Well, not exactly. This is a key phase of my offspring's lifetime development. Anyway, I did manage to get a few minutes to put some flowers on the grave of my grandparents.
Tomorrow I shall run. And swim.
