Lyrics - I wanna move with the seasons
Hope you get good weather for your ride Blisters.
Sounds like another busy weekend Dustin. No improvement with the knee at all?
OH - everything back in working order after your ultra?
Anyone racing this weekend?
What: easy runWhy: taperLast hard: 13/10Last rest: 27/11
Yesterday's lyrics were The Gambler by Kenny Rogers.
What: hopefully an hour or soWhy: if the ankle and feet want to play. Sturggled this week, which is a nuisance after last week's race. Suspect the harder run the day after was the problem. Report back later!
Coughing fit at 0530. Made me decide that I wasn't going biking with the group. Now that I've done the ironing and Christmas cards I'm going shopping. There are times to ditch the aspirations.
Unfortunately, the scales tell me that I'm 7lb overweight, and that's 14 lb over the ideal race weight. I've only eaten 2 mince pies so far.
Blisters I'm not looking at the scales until Dec 30th when the new plan kicks in....
Body was in shock this morning at a run, hardish effort at parkrun (mainly as was very muddy and claggy) for 5th in 20:11, started easy and got stronger... always a nice feeling
Don't push too much Ale!
Still snow here although now turning to a bit of slushy rain.
2°C Air 3° Water 10 minute sea swim this morningOne of our group managed 20 minutes IISA rules (ie normal swimming costume and plastic hat only!)What: The dreaded Chrismas S wordWhy: It's that time of yearLast Hard: see aboveLast rest: Thursday
Long way to the Hebrides from here!
60 mins d&d, largely off road: ankles very tender for first half and developed a sore foot towards the end! That's running for you!
Off to the shops, also. Wonder why?!
Evening. Quiet on here today.
What: Gardening followed by 3 mile run homeWhy: last chance to garden before Christmas, felt rude not to run home afterLast hard: losing another toenail :SLast rest: yesterdayLyrics: nope
Hope Chicka is ok, hasn't popped in since the storm...
Have a good one all.
East district XC champs at Dundee today. Think I had a good run - gained some significant time on clubmates who beat me by 1 min and 1min 40 two weeks ago. There was just 20s or so between the three of us this time. Have managed to lose about 5 pounds and that makes all the difference for me. It was a great race with some great battles with other runners throughout. Little snow on mostly frozen ground so ideal underfoot too.
70 miles biked. Nice.
Out tonight for food & a jar!
Ale - progression!!
Blisters - I have been having big calf cramp problems lately. Try http://www.dioralyte.co.uk/ One sachet a day. Seems to have sorted me out. Pharmacist (who is an athlete) swears by it.
XC cancelled for tomorrow (not surprised)Temperature now 6°C and snow thawing. Heavy rain forecast tomorrow I see a rest day comingElspeth has "promised" me a birthday run on Monday!! LM.H Other than knock to chest from tumble (now practically better) I've had very little after effects of last week's Tigh nam Bodach run
That's good OH.
5lbs in two weeks is good weight loss Donaldo and nice that you can see the improvement in your running.
Good bike miles Paddy - you going long next year?
Hope you soon feel better Blisters - at least there are lots of other things to be getting on with at this time of year.
Sounds like some party chickadee!
Why the last chance to garden emzap?
Hope your legs are ok tomorrow Alehouse - stretch!
I put the marzipan on my cake this afternoon. Not sure it's quite thick enough but as I'm not going to take it off and start again and don't think that adding a second layer will work I guess it will have to do. Shame as I do like marzipan but it's only my second year so I'm still learning - more than one pack for an 8" square cake next year maybe?
No ground almonds to be had in Kirkwall today!
Glad you didn't get blown away Chicka!
LMH last chance to garden as Christmas starts on Friday for us, and so we cleaned all the tools today so will start again in Jan. Off to warmer climes for a while.
OH why are there no ground almonds?
Don good weight loss.
emzap - demand and no boats
LMH: I will probably use a pack and a half of marzipan for my 9 inch round cake. Did you put apricot jam on first? Note to self: get marzipan tomorrow!
Emz: loads of parkruns in SA now (if that is where you are going!) And cricket!
Paddy: the only progression is sompared to the last week, which has not been a good one running-wise. Racing seems to take too much out of me, and that is without putting the foot totally to the floor! Except for last weekend I have now run over an hour every Saturday since the end of September. Hope to get up to 90 mins any time soon, niggles permitting.
