Lyrics - The cafes are all deserted, the streets are wet again
I was waiting for someone else to start the thread as I couldn't think of any lyrics but, whilst it's not raining, these are quite apt for me at least.
A beautiful sun rise over the sea was my reward for a pre-breakfast run. Knees are complaining a little ad it was quite tough into the head wind on the way back but so worth it.
What: 6 miles easyWhy: why would you not if you could?Last hard: admitting that six miles was about all my legs were up forLast rest: 25/10
LMH: I couldn't be bothered to think of any lyrics!
What: 2.5K swinm set doneWhy: can't be a runner all the timeLast Hard: That wasLast Rest: 20/10
Its a lovely day in Dubai
Ale: 35 seconds down from my 10K PB in this running life, over 6 mins from my real one!
ditched the 10m race in dorset for a 13.65m LSR with 3m at HMP, feel much better for it too, as racing 10m in the leauge next week, so not fussed at missing one.
Afternoon all. Back from XC in Liverpool. Incredibly muddy, knee-deep in parts, long ankle-deep stretches were par for the course. Really enjoyed it though. Came in 3rd counter for my team (six to count, we fielded 11 or 12). Two teams (Liverpool and Knowsley) in particular dominated the race so all the smaller clubs were fighting it out for the minor places, we must have a shout of top 5 as 4th to 6th for my team weren't too far behind. Time was irrelvant, just glad to have done my bit.
Rest day for me
Walked Goedie earlier in pouring rain...
Afternoon all, missed the lyric last couple of days as been too busy with work to do anything else, missed planned parkrun yesterday as had to work, so grumpy this weekend
Don't know todays lyrics
RW never got the chance to wish you a good run today, hope it went well and weather wasn't too bad.
Ok - some one has hijacked Tom's log in
sevendaughters - teams events are great - nice to finish 3rd fastest in your team.
Dubai Dave - you must be very happy with your running at the moment.
alehouse - yes, I'm pretty happy with the result.
What: Auckland Marathon.
Why: I'd entered and thought I just might be able to get away with it.
Up at 3.45am, on the ferry by 5.00am for 6.10am start. I was always going to start easy as I didn't want to blow myself to bits.
Lined up behind the 4 hr balloons, with a few others from my club. A few people said we were going a bit fast, 2 minutes up at 10km, the the first half of the marathon is hilly, and also includes the Auckland Harbour bridge.
Then I heard someone say that the guy with the balloons was only going half-way. Decided to just run the first half and then see what I had left. So 1.55.41 for half-way, then the wheels started to fall off.
I was very hot, and I was glad I had worn my hat, so kept on pouring water over my head. I really wanted to walk, but kept on telling myself, I had to run for at least 3hrs!
The second half of the course runs out and back along Auckland's waterfront, so you get to see the front runners on the return journey.
Tried to concentrate on them, as I got into my marathon shuffle. Told myself I could walk through the drink stops.
I started taking flat coke with water soon after half way, I had no energy, but with about 7km to go the sugar must have kicked in, and I was able to run reasonably to the finish.
Very happy to finish 4.09.46 2nd in my age-group F60-64
Well done for battling it out NZC brilliant time and congrats on the catagory position
Nice long night for me last night

Last shift of run of 4 tonight then off till wed then got a weeks leave yyyaaaaaaaaayyyy
Good report, NZC! I'm just looking at the weather for Auckland - 92% humidity! You would never get me out in that with the temperature above 15 degrees unless I was aiming for serious weightloss. I think you should be really proud of that effort.
Well done NZC
Well done indeed, NZC: does that make you a Roadster?
Good fun, 7D: when I ran there years ago it was muddy...and it had been dry for weeks!
Well done NZC, running in that heat is not nice!
What:20 min walk to minibus, 3 hour drive, 30 min warm up, 1 hour of lacrosse, 3 hour drive, 20 min walk homeWhy: I had a match to get to!Long day! last weekend we had 23C here and today it was 5 and there was a lot of snow on the way down south. Lost our game too, the other team were very very good!
Ale how are you feeling today?OH you're joking about that dip right?
Have a good one all.
Well Done NZCemzap - probably not!
