Morning...and again, just!
Lyrics are: Hello loneliness I think I'm-a gonna cry
Twins' birthday is Monday but we are celebrating today, so I am up wrapping presents, having made a couple of cakes that I need to decorate first thing. Can't believe they will be 24 tomorrow!
Cricket: not looking good, as usual.
Yesterday's parkrun turned out to be 23:14, with M65 friend running 22:35. My WAVA was 69.01: hope to virtually beat you next time Don,
What: probably around 30 mins/5kWhy: it will be a case of seeing what I can fit in, and if there has been any damage to the legs from running faster yesterday.
alehouse - good running - mine's going to pot! My son is 34 tomorrow! Happy birthday to your twins!
Why: - did a mad xcountry race on Saturday on Waiheke Island - very early start as we had to catch the 6.15am ferry - race started at 8am - a low key event - money raised going to the local school, but one of the hardest races I think I've ever done. Must be my age and lack of fitness. Supposed to be 10km but a lot shorter than that but still took me over 50 minutes - huge hills around vineyards, crossing stiles, bridges, through bush - very hot even at that hour, with high humidity.
Then visited my sister who lives there, beaut swim, then big lunch - a big day out with the family - all very tired afterwards.
What: Rest Day
Why: Sunday usually is for me. Walked Geordie for 45mins though
Lyrics: Yes, saw adocumetary over festive period featuring this song and the singers.
Working again tomorrow 7am -3pm.
Happy Birthday to the twins.
Yesterday's lyrics - as many knew - were Like A Hurricane
Hope your knee is ok after that run Dustin. Well done to Miss D.
Send some heat our way NZC!
Hope you have a good day with the twins Alehouse.
Are you enjoying it birks?
What: LSRWhy: Brass in two weeksLast hard: 22/12Last rest: 28/12
Lyrics - yes.
Yes I am, its like a full days cross training. 100% better than Aldis
morningAle , NZC - many happy returns to the offspring!NZC - well toughed out, sounds a good race though

why: if I knew that I wouldn't be undecided!
last hard: final blow of Ashes
last rest: Friday
lyrics: no but sound familiar
As Dustin said yesterday, XC, a tad muddy and plenty of water, 116th for me, so happy with that.
Also did a very easy parkrun with Mrs RFJ in the morning
Attempted to run this morning, but canned after 50 meters as had no grip due to the ice.... so will go out later and dont want to fall....
Very slippery here first thing too but not too bad once we'd walked Grace and were ready to go. A nice comfortable 17 for me in the end, now need to taper for Brass then I can get back to some proper training.
7 mile LSR for me today, was tough for 2 reasons
1.) Breathing was fine, nothing hurt as such.. but upper legs were stiff towards the end. Not helped by the hills on the return journey
2.) I shouldn't take my watch with me, I made sure I was at a convo pace the whole way. My time was 1 hour exact at 6 mile. I don't like looking at that!
Exam tomorrow as best get down to some work!
Dustin, RFJ, well done on the XC yesterday - sounds great!
alehouse, lol, is WAVA the age-grade thing? 72.68% for yesterday I think - what a great way to compare performances - will mine get better when I turn 44 in March?
Nice going over the 17 miles this morning LMH.
Dibs, I rarely run without a watch but always enjoy leaving it at home. I'm too focussed on facts and figures whilst running but it keeps my mind off the pain!
12 miles this morning, worked very hard on the hills and my overall pace increased due to that - 89:22 in total, a good run.
Lyrics, easy.Happy birthday to Ale's twins. Well done on racing Ale and NZC, both sounded to be tough in their own ways. Nice steady 17 LMH, I'm jealous.
Training, not easy. In fact, not any. Tickly chesty cough thankfully left me alone last night and I slept like a log. But I've felt sluggish all day, especially now. I've decided not to go swimming. My running is canned because my calf siezes after 3 miles. My biking started to tell me that my knee was not happy. Do I sound like a whinger? Yes? I'm not after sympathy, I'd just like my health and some sunshine.
Just back from doing 90 mins as planned, hard work after yesterday, but its done (11.56m)
Yes, hope the exam goes well Dibs. My long runs are over a minute a mile slower than my HM pace - keep the faith!
Blisters - have you tried adjusting your saddle so that the knee will let you ride?
You've been putting in a lot of miles and a lot of quality sessions chickadee, enjoy the rest day.
Good running Donald.
Hope you get many more shifts/taken on then birks.
Good long runs LM.H, Chickadee, Dibs, Donald, RFJ
What aborted LSR
Why not feeling great
Lyrics think so
Set out for 20+ but didn't feel right so came home before I got too far from home. Ended up with 7 plus a bit of walking.
What did you decide on then OH?
Hope you feel better tomorrow postie.
