Lyrics: When I find myself in times of trouble
Yesterday's lyrics were "The Clapping Song", Shirley Ellis.
What: a couple of hours driveWhy: tell my mother of my latest woes!
Race well, LMH and 7D (and anyone else racing)
Chilly start to the day - ice on the fish pond. At least it's fairly still.
What: NVH 10 mile race.Why: seemed like a good idea when I enteredLast hard: 17/11Last rest: 1/12
Lyrics - yes.
LMH best of luck and anyone else racing
Alehouse safe driving
What: Cup of tea/Work + cycle to and fromWhy: Christmas is coming Last Hard: Walking down Regents StreetLyris: Not today but have only got up
Morning and goog luck to all racers and god speed recovery all sick/il/injuredLyrics: AbsolutelyWhat: Cheeky little 8 mile out and back along the river pathWhy: Because I couldlast Hard: 28/11Last Rest: Yesterday. Students grading and a half-decent rugby match to watch in Cardiff
good luck racers!Just put my Christmas decorations up. Happy First Advent all Total writeoff yesterday .... came home at 5:30 after our Christmas Party from work. Boy, did I have fun. But I paid for it and felt really rubbish all day yesterday. Danced my socks off and my knee hurt badly but after some icing and not doing anything at all yesterday it seems fine again. Ran for the first time since the fall and managed 6 miles with no pain. Phew.
Lyrics yes - one of my favorites
What - 7.25m easyWhy - RecoveryLast Hard - YesterdayLast rest - Fri
Lyrics? Yes. For a change. But then again I did sing them as part of a voluntary choir in front of hundreds of people Santa Baby? That's another amusingly topical song designed to be an ear worm.
One church service done, one more to go, then training is swimbling at 6pm. LMH reported frost on her pond. Does that mean she needs a winter grade wetsuit? Happy racing, and of course, sympathies to Pammie for having to endure Regents Street.
What: 1st XC since schoolWhy: Nice day and missed kayakingLast hard: todayLast rest: FridayLyrics: easy yes
Afternoon all. Sorry I've been awol for a few days very busy at work on a course.
What: Well, I attempted to do a 5km race, but couldn't find the start so ended up doing a very snow 3 miles in the forest at home! The Wildschwein had snow in their fur and looked really funnyWhy: see aboveLast hard: accepting that I can't seem to find anything in Germany!Lyrics: yes, like this song a lot.
Autobahn covered in snow this morning, a little terrifying to drive on! Hoping it's not like this for the next 3 months or I'll need to spend a lot on winter running gear...
LMH how did the race go?Chick wow, good party then?!Ale how's the achillies feeling then? Was the driving ok for it?
Have a good one all.
afternoon..chicka - nice party, hope the head's better now!OH - hope u enjoyed xcLmH - well.....?what - low key local xc (part of a series run by nearby club)why - leg stretcher after yesterdays hampshire leaguelast rest - friday last hard - back to back xc races.Did OK yesterday, marshalled for all the junior races (youngest 2nd scorer for our U13 girls), then had to thaw out feet in order to run 10k...didn't do too badly in the circumstances...managed to keep RFJ in sight all the way round!! 10k in 43.13Today - shorter course, about 5 miles in about 37.50 (did 37.3x last time) legs suffered on lap 2 but hang on for reasonable finish..not sure of the words today..oh and bah humbug, decorations go up in a couple of weeks don't they??? (if at all)
The outside decs have been up all weekend Dustin! Loads more to sort out inside, but the tree won't happen for another couple of weeks.
If at all Dustin.
More good news Tom.
Glad you're able to run again chickadeee.
Winter weight wetsuit or not it needs to be a lot warmer than this for me to swim OW Blisters.
Race or training run OH?
Sounds as though you made the best of it emzap.
Well that was rubbish, from the organisation, to the course, to my running. I ran the half marathon at a faster average pace. It just wasn't there today, HR did the weird thing it has taken to doing on occasion lately and recorded a new MHR in the first mile - and it's not a HRM malfunction - then I just got slower. Legs felt like lead after about five miles, couldn't maintain (normal) HR after that, had a couple of over 8 min miles then picked up again and despite still being slow and feeling as though I were going backward kept catching and overtaking people in the last couple of miles. Finished with a new PB but only because it was years old.
So - bad day at the office; residual tiredness from two weeks ago; too long on my feet with not enough food yesterday? Who knows. How to go forward? An hour on the turbo tomorrow and see what happens or take a rest day and hope to feel fresh to get back to it on Tuesday?
Wow...varied reports but eventful day! Tom, no, Welsh English bordr Peregrine Path along the Wye.Must dash. Son to train station back to uni...we have no trains on these parts so 40+mile round trip
LMH - just put it down as an effort run. Good for getting out there.
RFJ and Dustin - still racing well - good on you.
Why: Neck still out, and did a long run on Saturday. Feeling tired.
LMH, are you sure that it's not a HR glitch? I always used to get them in the first mile of the Midlands/National road race relays. No way my Hr was anything like 230. It was always a cold day, no contact, and probably some static build up giving false signals until I got sweaty.
Straycelt, that sounds like great location for a run. I'm not too far away.
Swim today. Coach has started to beast everyone out of their comfort zone, by insisting on alternate breathing.
