Yesterdays words were Tour de France by Kraftwerk - It came to mind as i was contemplating my long spin, although I was more expecting the Hell of the North

6 to 8 miles later

Just popping in quickly as entertaining the in-laws. Don't seem to have any ill effects from yesterday's run which is good but am being cautious so will rest today - well, if you can count a day out shopping with the MiL as rest.

What:          nothing
Why:           see above
Last hard:    seeing the number on the scales this morning
Last rest:     12/4

Lyrics - no sure that I do.

What: rest probably
Why: calves a bit achey after yesterday and weather for kayaking (gales through night although settled just now)
Last hard: yesterday
Last rest: Friday
Lyrics: no

LM.H don't be so silly (wrt scales!)

Weather cold and gray here

I don't want to be carrying around any more than I have to OH!

14/04/2013 at 10:25

Same as postie.... 10.41m in 80 mins...

Feeling good, just want next week to come....

Take care

morning all
not sure what happened but had planned a steady 2hrs/15-16 miler...went to bed after MotD and woke up an hour later, throwing up & diarrohea for the next 3-4 hours. Don't think its something I ate, as we just had salad / cooked meats for tea, and rest of the family OK. 
Feel like death warmed up now, so may go back to bed...
Annoying to say the least.

Hope it goes as quickly as it came, Dustin.

Lyrics: no


What: 5 mins/stretch/18 mins slow struggle on mixed surfaces
Why:  legs are still feeling batered from Friday's QofP, plus the wind was sufficently hard to be blowing tables and chairs from outside a coffee shop into the road.

Dustin:    sounds very much like norovirus ... family will probably be next. Hope it's the "light" 24 hour version ...

nice quick running postie & RFJ.

what: 13.1 easy miles
why: final long run before jogging round Hamburg for 26.2 next week
last hard: Tuesday
last rest: Thursday

14/04/2013 at 16:49

Hope it goes as quickly as it came Dustin - lots of hand washing.

chickadeee - that's a long run a week before your marathon.

Alehouse - equally windy here.

14/04/2013 at 17:20

8 miles this morning around the streets of Liverpool, well technically around the streets of Hale and then onto the 'Trans Penine Trail' which was quite nice!  Went fast despite the early hour and the wind, felt good.

14/04/2013 at 18:43

donaldo Have the avenues of Hale now been usurped by merseyside?

Sun came out later today but accompanied by stiff wind.

14/04/2013 at 19:07

OH: it is a different Hale...mind you if Don had continued on the Trans Pennine Trail he would have passed the end of my road and ended up in HM!

14/04/2013 at 19:47

OH - ye, this Hale is next to Speke in Liverpool - my relatives live in Speke and recommended I run somewhere nice and rural.  

alehouse - looks like a good trail, do you use it for training?

14/04/2013 at 19:52

Don: the TPTrail is quite varied. The part I use is actually on the banks of the Mersey, in the main, so I was running on it well before it became an official route! Whilst I live on the edge of the big city I go to the end of my road and it is "nice and rural", which is why I bought the house 30 years ago and have never moved!

14/04/2013 at 19:55
(but with the reference to the transpennine trail, you maybe can understand my confusion! )
14/04/2013 at 22:15
