'to hurry up and arrive, 'cause if I gotta spend another minute with you, I don't think that I can surely survive...' YES!

I'm praying for the end of the swelling and bruising at this point, but it feels a lot better at the moment than I thought it would, although that could be the painkillers!

Yep, a spring marathon is what I'm hoping for, provided I get lucky at the club's FLM draw on Thursday (although I've not been that lucky this year)!

Hope you're all sleeping tightly now,

What: Nothing - just riding to the triathlon race and back and watching all the crazy people racing!!!
Why: 39 degrees outside
Last Hard: Last weekend
Last Rest: Thursday

Ouch to those twisted ankles, dangerous sport that cross country stuff!!!
Some good results to the others though!
NZC hope whatever upset you has passed now.

Thanks for all the positive vibes re my 5K and the advice from the Uni peeps, looking forward to it. I have two supervisors (PhD), reckon I'd better get a meeting set up with them for the new year before I start.

Morning all,
Hope you enjoyed your ride RHGDUnder.

Paul -

AF - I just had a little hissy fit - I'm very sensitive - I know how to dish it out, but not that good at taking it:-) I'm absolutlely fine.

What: Vet track - 3000m 12.44, 1500m 6.06 - will have to check the official results when they come to hand. It was great to have another W55 in the races. She whipped me! I sat on her shoulder for the first 4 laps of the 3000m and then thought she wasn't giving it her best effort, so went past her, only to get passed again and had I had no sprint left in me. Sat with her again for 2 laps of the 1500m before she showed me how it was done:-)
Off for a nice dinner out, so that should be good.
Forgot to say - highlight for me yesterday was my W45 friend who I'd helped get her last few weeks marathon training sorted and helped get her head around the fact that she was better than what she'd done before, broke 4hrs for the first time. Her husband rang me and he was thrilled.

morning all.

Think I'm first up this morning on this side of the globe!

Well done in your track races NZC.

RHGDU - 39 degrees for a triathlon. Eek!

Good luck Stickless :o)
looking forward to the report

What: 5 miles or so before work
Why: trying to build up my miles to something semi-reasonable again before the end of the year.
last rets: Wed
Last hard: Friday

Tom, i don't get to see Malcolm very often but next time i see him i'll pass on your regards. Don't know him that well but he strikes me as a decent chap.

hope the turned ankles start to calm down today.

will up the training to 4 miles or so today. Nice easy jog up the canal path.

Seems weird to "up" to 4 miles, but there you go.

Got first XC next sunday which isn't going to be pleasant, but i'm desprate to turn out for the club, even if i'm no where near form.

Good luck to anybody racing today.

Morning all,

great cross country reports yesterday (but ouch, FL!) - great guns Hilly for winning and the third lap.

Congrats to your friend NZC - I haven't broken four yet but that's partly because I shifted focus, I think. I'm thinking about trying to break four for the first time in an IM marathon, but that might be a little too much of a stretch!!

What: long ride, probably inside
Why: schedule and severe weather warning
Last hard: getting through yesterday
Last rest: Friday

Good runnings all - and good luck all you racers!
10/12/2006 at 07:54

commiserations to RJF and FL on the XC inflicted ankle injuries, hope you're both back on your feet without lasting damage.

great track runs NZC, you need to paste that girl next time. well done your friend in her marathon too!

coming along nicely paulI, good luck for next week

looking forward to race reports later, good luck everybody. conditions look set to be a bit testing

what - 3rd borders league race, prestatyn
why - club league

Well done in the track races NZC. Its years since i last raced on the track.

5 1/4 miles into work this morning at 0535 and another 5 1/4 miles back to the car this afternoon. That should see me right for the day.

Good Runnings everyone.
10/12/2006 at 08:27

Congratulations on yesterday's xc performances Hilly, BR and Micksta

Stickless - I hope you do well today and are pleased with your result!

What: a run with 2x20 minutes at 10k pace followed by a turbo spin set
Why: schedule
Last hard: last weekend
Last rest: monday

It's my oldest's 19th birthday today. I won't ring her till the afternoon as she was out clubbing with her mates. Makes me feel old! We're having a family meal tonight.

Forgot to say:

Lyrics: yes. I saw them back in the days when they were still a support band in Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto. They were great (and the reason I went). The main act were ELO who I don't like.
10/12/2006 at 09:14

10/12/2006 at 10:24
