No that's me sharkie. 3 weeks and a day till I leave - not that I'm counting!! After a dodgy few weeks before Xmas, I've been sleeping really well but I think my sleep patterns are a wee bit off again.

Not sure if it's related but I got the Deep Relaxation CD that was in Saturday's Times and did that on Sunday and Monday and flipping heck haven't felt that totally zoned out for years.

Will get back to pilates next week - assuming the New Year rush means there's places. Last year was a nightmare.

it will be nice to be touched and pampered at worst

but that aint the issue

LOTS more focused Yoga

Even though you've gone now:
I am a bear of very little brain, or perhaps a shark of very little suss. But I have got it now, thank you very much. I will def. try it probably tomorrow. Of course the hideous 600 at the start will knacker me for the 200s, I get it!

Hipps
SO missis. You have been pulling a slow one haven't you? You did a 5k with walking and STILL MANAGED to come in at under 30 mins? I smell a rat. Worse. I smell burning rubber. You MUST have legged it somewhere in that 3 point something miles. You little trickster!

Admission
I do Walk Bits
Even in short races.
Well sometimes.
And I only DO short races.:

Meant to say earlier that the main 3.5 miles of today's run wasslow. I was running - the grass meant I had to pick my feet up, but I kept it very steady as an exercise, and will admit to not much inclination to speed up. It took 38.5 minutes - so average of 11minute pace.

I know I know I know I know I know...
but it is still a bit eek! ish when I see 11 minute pace written down! Not as if I actually went very far either BUT I am not going to start freaking out about it, I will do some fast reps later in the week and harmony will reign.

And eventually,
Not today
not tomorrow
but eventually

it will all come together.

Hipps - when was I mean to you?
When I refused to do an ultra?
Or when I suggested you take some rest days?
Anyway, are you in PB shape for the Brass Monkey? I will be doing Helsby on the same day (start is 1 hr later) so will be thinking of you as I whizz round in 1:59:59

The mere MENTION if videoing my running is VERY mean;)

and yes, i was deeply hurt that you would not do an ultra;)

I dont know if i am in pb shape
it hurts to walk, let alone run
we wil see

Sharkie-that 5k was probably short
it was a Race for Life

and i hadnt started running/training-that wasnt till 2002

hm-so training makes you slower

(I was also only 35 then)

I forgot to mention that the speed interval session I suggested is a great way to build speed endurance. The 11 min miles are ok because they were on grass and miles on grass are always slower. But miles on grass are kinder and good for strengthening ankles.

Hipps
I really would like you to join me in a 5k this year, and I reckon you will do one somewhere... but can see that this Jan's LFOTM might not be a good idea.

But you are not going to wriggle out of that sub 30, even if it was a frilly Race for Life.

And are you - you of all people with your multiple unmentionables (on this thread pleeeeeeeeese) - daring to question the Written In Stone edict that Miles make you Faster. And more slow miles make you faster still? Are you daring to disagree with the combined might of Hard Training with Mike Gratton, with Mr.Pantman, with Queen Hilly, with Johnnie 'no-one got slower running more miles Johnson et al. All the usual suspects!

Do you belong to the tiny band of runners who say train slow race slow? Ah no - that can't be you - you don't 'train'

Perhaps you belong to the even more select gang.
WGAF!

I do love you

I entered Hasting half marathon yesterday.

Hippo

How are you legs today?

Daz

My 3 miles yesterday took me 33:40. No sure what I am going to do this morning. Think I will just see how my legs feel when I get out there.

Hipps
I did know that She Who Must be Obeyed (that's you Tracey) had pur your entry in. Just didn't want you to think you had to if it wasn't the right 29 minutes. Glad you got yoga today - take it easy though.

If you are now definitely going to be there I will volunteer my Serpie services and desert Mr. Sh... on his birthday. Can't say fairer than htat can I?

Oh yeah, lunch defiinitely. Although I have been known to subsist on coffee and a small square of the dark stuff. That's chocolate, not Guinness. Used to subsist on ciggies and JD so iyou can see life has moved on.
