Not expecting much, I see from the programme it's larger a retail show for Adidas. I'm due to run 14 miles on my training plan, so have plotted a route to run home from there.
hello all...I think M is still sitting in the sprinter's ice bath...enjoy the helping out Ale, and feet up for the sport bonanza later! lyric - nagging at me...what - 18.25 miles done first thing. Was out at 6.30 (youngest has 2hr swimming + gym) out on the country lanes for the middle 10, not a soul in sight. Perfect!Did toy with the idea of the park run as a wind down, but don't think the legs would have forgiven me..why - opportunity knockedlast rest - sundaylast hard - have a guess...enjoy the weekend everyone!

Distracting myself from Scotland getting hammered.
Swim followed by 10.3 miles partly road partly farm track now done.
Just figuring out opportunities for a 20+ run in time for Loch Katrine (10 March)
Well done RFJjunior
Quiet on here today, everyone must be outside enjoying the sunshine.Lyrics: a bad run of form continues.Nice 18 slotted in there, Dustin.Well done Jnr RFJ, I notice that Dad omitted to mention how much he enjoyed getting thrashed.
Bike ride: "How far are we going?" "When you get back you can look at the computer!" That turned out to me a 63 mile mauling, hanging on to the tail of Group One. We headed NE, into the breeze, with two strong guys putting the muscle down. Eventually, on the SW leg, with the wind behind us, the effort level remained constant, but the pace increased. All well and good, but by that stage any slight gradient and I was off the back. Home for 1pm.
Out again shortly after 2pm, with Cross Country starting at 3pm. Four laps of a very muddy field. With low expectations, I set off from near the back, but felt OK and moved up through the field on lap 1. Got a stitch, and started to lose a place or two. Then my descent through the pack accelerated, as the mud sapped all my energy. After 3 laps I stopped. I had had enough. Oddly, after a minute or two I decided that I would indeed finish the race. Sure I got beaten by some very senior vets "I'm only 69, youth". This was on the run in to the line as well. 5 soggy, boggy miles. I think that I was doing 7:30m/m on lap 1, and 11m/m on laps 3 & 4.
I should sleep well.
That's a great days training Blisters - hope you're refuelling suitably.
Dedicated dad Dustin - glad you could make the most of the time too.
I love my new hybrid bike. So much more comfortable than the mtb ever was. Big thanks to Andy at my LBS who sent ages measuring angles and distances on my road bike in order to set it up as closely as possible. Went out with mark and we did just short of two hours round trails, cycle paths and roads in the bright sunshine. Hope it stays like that for my run tomorrow but I fear the wind is forecast to return.
