Morning.

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 easy
Why:                  why would you not if you could?
Last hard:          admitting that six miles was about all my legs were up for
Last rest:           25/10

Morning! Foul day here in the very wet and cold north west, not that it bothers me stuck in my bed! Not a nice day for RW and Preston Marathon.

Yesterday's lyrics were " Ticket to Ride", The Beatles.

DD: how close was that 10k time to your pb?

7d: Dewsbury parkrun might be an option also. Enjoy the mud this pm.

Dreich here too - gray and wet

What: not sure if I can be bothered kayaking
Why: wet and miserable
Last hard: ?
Last rest: Friday
Lyrics: likewise looked at empty thread for today but couldn't think of any apt lyrics

RW hope the weather's not too unkind
(the hot shower at the end will maybe make it all worthwhile

Not regretting having stayed home this weekend (5h travelling for 10 mile run in cold rain)
Lit the coal fire for the first time this winter yesterday

LMH we'll be seeing dawn over mis morning coffee before long!
Moonlit dip under the bridge planned for tomorrow evening

Ale: 35 seconds down from my 10K PB in this running life, over 6 mins from my real one!

 

28/10/2012 at 10:27
NZC: I think you have some very positive news to share!

DD: good going then! Obviously you will go more quickly in more favourable conditions.

morning all,

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.

Take care

Afternoon!
What: Gym in a bit.
Why: Big night last night, not up to much more.
Last hard: After a while of nagging her to join me my sister came along for parkrun yesterday, unfortunately she didn't enjoy it and we ended up walking half of it. She can do the distance but I don't think she's really 'got' running yet, she struggles to get in the moment and is discouraged very easily by the perceived speed and ease of others. I had the dog with me though and she enjoyed it!
Last rest: This weekend really.
Lyrics no.

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.

Lyrics: no.

A'noon

Rest day for me

Walked Goedie earlier in pouring rain...

28/10/2012 at 16:25

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.

Hi everybody

No run day for me. Spent the morning marshalling at the Fenland 10....fast flat fenland course with not too much wind today. Race was won in 52mins, with 10-11 runners breaking 60mins. really enjoyed myself...the most fun I've had at a road race without actually competing....and in some cases more

Enjoy Strictly Come Dancing and The Antiques Roadshow everyone, though Sunday's not the same anymore without the repeats of Last Of The Summer Wine.


........err, just joking, honest!

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

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.

28/10/2012 at 18:10

Well done NZC

28/10/2012 at 18:42

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!

28/10/2012 at 19:35

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 home
Why: 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.

28/10/2012 at 19:44

Well Done NZC

emzap - probably not!
