Todays lyrics:Hey you, don't watch that Watch this!

What 45mins Steady  mixture of paths and off road

Why: Enjoyed running off road the last few days.

Sunny, frosty, no wind.

Younger son playing football at 1:30 so will go and watch that.

Catch up time.

Morning Birks.

What: hopefully a hike
Why: we're in hiking country

However, it's currently overcast, so not safe to go up the mountain.  We're currently waiting to see if it burns off.  Hopefully if no hike, then a run.

Blisters hope the infection goes soon. 
Birks you becoming a trail runner?

Have a good one all.

Its a long cycle today. This training sometimes seems like its Madness.

What: brief swim
Why: Saturday and it's quiet work wise
Last hard March
Last rest: yesterday
Lyrics: no

Overcast here today

BM definitely a change of habit

Very brief swim today (5C)

06/04/2013 at 12:58

5C, you're mad!

Hike cancelled as it's raining too much.  Hoping for a run later instead.

5C ?????  nutjob

1st time this campaign that I ran without hat & gloves . 7 degrees and I was hot -- what am I going to do if its 17 on race day???
9 miles done with 6x100m strides and 5 x 600m reps (did them between 6:10 and 6:30 pace, depending on the wind). Think I successfully shook of those tired post race legs that were bugging me all week.

Enjoy the weekend

Afternoon, and a very spring-like one at last: 11.5 degrees. Wall to wall sunshine since first thing, although bitterly cold when I was watching a parkrun.

What: 15 minutes of struggle! (On trails, as I do whenever I can).
Why: even though it was slow I couldn't breathe, couldn't put one foot in front of the other. Suspect it is from lots of walking whilst in France, plus a couple of hours earlier helping a friend dismantle a 12 x 8 green house that he has bought:it still remains in someone else's garden! Or did I have too many layers on (although no gloves, hat and only one pair of bottoms)?

OH:  I don't fancy that swim!
Birks: building up nicely, I see. Any race plans?!

06/04/2013 at 15:41

Meant to say yes to the lyrics (but only because of Paddy's clue).

SC: can't you do Wales/Oxford/Gatwick?

06/04/2013 at 16:22

AH that would be sensible I have to go back to Wales to teach for 17.00 and the wanderer returns to Gatwick at 23.00!!!!

06/04/2013 at 16:26

5 km run up a hill then down again with OH.  Sunshine came out just in time for the run

06/04/2013 at 17:30

50 mile cycle d&d. I think thats enough distance. Last years 80 mile (Sometimes plus) were simply one step beyond the pale!!

Ale - Jasas, I didnt mean to give a clue!!

There's a hint of spring in the air

06/04/2013 at 20:36



Lyrics not at first then i read Ale's post then i got it

What: 6.78 miles on the bike

Why: felt like it

Paddy Great cycle one day one day

Hello everyone, not posted for a while, hope everyone is doing well. Since moving house I've been working bizarre hours, changed my diet pretty much wholesale and decided to cut race distances to 10M and under - but up training efforts in terms of speed. Seems to be paying off as I broke my 5M and 5K PBs this week, going 31.38 at the Chester Spring 5 on Wednesday night and 18.56 this morning at South Manchester parkrun. Targetting my first sub-40 10k at the end of the month and thinking of finding a second claim club in the area.
