Lyrics - That place we all run to
NZC - marathon training for you too then!
Blisters - you are an all round domestic god.
Sounds as though you're getting back in to it Pammie.
Heavy rain overnight has cleared all of the snow - yay! - but the wind is high and gusting up to 40 mph so trying to decide whether to risk a ride on the new hybrid or to stick to the safety of the turbo. Decisions, decisions.
What: a couple of hours on the bikeWhy: song title says it allLast hard: deciding I probably need to stay inside todayLast rest: 25/1
I forgot - yesterday's lyrics were No Freedom by Dido.
morning all,had wind and rain overnight like LmH says but shaping up to be a lovely day out there...Birks - glad you all had a lovely day yesterday. Watched most of it on the beeb...Good performance as you say from Lagat, also pleased Chambers, grabarz & Bleasdale did well.Am I right in thinking Lynsey Sharp is former sprinter Cameron's daughter? What - hopefully an easy 6 or 7 laterWhy - off to Somerset shortly, as youngest in biathlon (swim/run) National semi-final, so won't be home before 7 or 8pmlast rest - 9 dayslast hard - yesterdays long one hurt more than i expectedlyric - not sureLmH - was reading yesteday that Dido has a new album out in March
Likewise wind and rain overnight but looking up now
What: XC with bunfight as it is last oneWhy: it's the last one and will have some work enforced rests over next 10 daysLast hard: yesterdayLast rest: Friday
Godd running yesterday Donaldo, Wabo, NZC would have been good to get out on bike again Pammie
Fun work night out last night (leaving do) - last of socialising trio with kayaking club this evening (leaving do for same bod)
14 miles long and slow for me this morning. 1:54:00 Very enjoyable until the last 2 mile when the wind blew and snow fell!
lyrics - yes!
I knew when Mark declared that the wind was so strong that he'd be resorting to the turbo that it really wasn't safe for me to be out on the roads and I wasn't just being a wuss. Two hours turbo done. Not the easy option.
Dustin - hope the event goes well for her. That track is from the new album, been played on Radio 2 a lot last week.
Enjoy the x-country OH. Hope it's not as windy there as here!
Have you entered Edinburgh donaldo?
Please let it be spring . 10k race cancelled today. Snow and sleet now being replaced by rain turning everything into an ice rink. what: 17.5 slow miles on Yaktraxwhy: couldn't race or run fast ...last hard: grains of sleet - it was like being sandblasted! Ouch.last rest: Mondaylyrics:noHope the XC goes well, OH.
Doesn't sound pleasant, Chick, so well done for banking that run! Likewise OH yesterday. Sounds good, DOnaldo!
Looking forward to the Somerset report, Dustin.That's a long time on the turbo, LMH.
What: 15 minutes, including a couple of minutes faster than I have done so far.Why: trying to feel like a runner, and almost succeeding. Where it wasn't muddy it was flooded.
Lyrics seem familiar, so no.
Yup, LMH, have secured an entry via Yorkhill Childrens hospital. Was too late to get a normal entry.
Wet and windy up here since aboout 6pm last night
Dustin: Yes she is Cameron Sharps daughter.
Some good longer training runs going on.
Tough chickadeee - you're certainly dedicated - more so than me I think!
very quiet in here today.
chickadeee - sorry to hear about your race good replacement run though.
good decision I'm sure LMH. it is hard sometimes to know if you are just being a wuss and some outside perspective definitely helps!
alehouse - sounds like progress!
what: 2hr18 very slow. why: needed to get a long run done but still a bit stiff from sprinting / tempo yesterday.
What: 5 km very slow followed by a classical concert with coffee and cake tastingWhy: still tretcherous out there. Was meant to be 9km but calf gave up around 3km, so decided to call it a day.Last hard: being sensible and calling it a day!
Snow starting to melt, though still icy and cold. Hope it's gone by tomorrow as legs feel fine on solid ground, so may actually get a planned run completed!
Good dedication there Chick and also LMH.Ale is that the fastest run yet?
Have a good one all.
Alehouse - you must be very happy things are improving.
Chick and M. - good long runs.
What: 16km with Mae - bit hot on the way home - I stuck both our heads under a water tap 6km from home.
dustin hope your youngest did well
nice long run donaldo
nice long run m as well!
nzc did that water tap make the last 6k better for you both? bet it did!
emzap oh dear thats a pain but better to be sensible
what@ 2 mile recovery easy
why: legs seemed to need it
last hard: that felt it
last easy: friday
have a good evening peeps
Yes, pleased that I am heading in the right direction, but a long way to go yet, and prostate treatment is more than likely to interfere!
Wabo: I see Spurs are concentrating on the league!
Take care with the calf, Emzap!
what - coaching assistant course for the last 2 daysWhy - requested by the clubLast hard - 2 x 12 hour days (90 mins ravel each way to course..)Last Rest - From runing yesterday
also did 6m as well tonight....
oh gawd alehouse don't! what a nightmare.
It sounds like we've got some dedicated people here managing to put their long runs together. I spent the day thinking about slotting in a short run, but never quite made it.
Swim training: I took my wetsuit to the pool for a try out. Blimey they don't half make you quick! I only wore it for the first 15 minutes, just to get used to it really. Then we had time trials: 400m and 200m, so I ditched it for those. My attempts were more of the trial part. Remember though, that my target is to complete, not compete. The wetty test was really quite a boost. Open water being the next challenge, or 152 lengths.
Blisters open water - surely not this time of year (though i expect some will) Brrrrrr
Nothing today work followed by a triple birthday celebration 15 of us descended on an italian eatery Had a good night
Back to business tomorrow
