Lyrics - It's rainin' but there ain't a cloud in the sky
Not apricot Alehouse but yes, I gave it a brushing with warm jam. Sounds as though I could probably have done with using a little more then - must remember for next time, it wasn't that I didn't have it, just that it looked thick enough when I rolled it out and it was only when I smoothed the corners that I thought it was a bit thin.
Nice holidaying emzap!
What: (short) LSRWhy: taperLast hard: 13/10Last rest: 27/11
Yesterday's lyrics were Girl Who Got Away by Dido.
What: intervals hopefullyWhy: playing with introducing speedworkLast hard: getting out in the coldLast rest: FridayLyrics: I think so, may be totally wrong though!
Yes Ale, I like to be predictable...Cape Town then the UK, all family visiting. There's a parkrun about 20 mins from my OH's parents in Cape Town and one 25 mins from my Dad in UK so hoping to get at least one in. Cricket. Don't mention it, was up since 5 listening
LMH bet the cake still tastes good though
OH Hope you get some almonds soon
Have a good one all
Raining and 100% cloud cover!
What: restWhy: XC deferred and no inclination to do anything elseLast hard: chill swim yesterdayLast rest: Thursday
Cricket: Oh no!
16 miles run - had to pick the pace up in the last mile to avoid a stampede of santas - I'd forgotten that the local santa run was on this morning!
Nice running LMH.
Same here OH, windy, rainy and low cloud everywhere. Horrid running conditions this morning.
Enjoy the XC Gobi.
12 miles this morning, last 6 into a god-awful headwind with rain beating down on me. Yuck. 1:37:29 Legs totally goosed from yesterdays efforts.
Lyrics, not yesterdays and not todays.
Intervals hurt. 2 km warm up then (@ 5km pace) 100m with 100m recovery, 200 with 200 recovery, 400, 800, 400, 200, 100 and 2 km jog home. Legs felt like jelly by the end, but it has to get easier right?
Well done Miss Gobi. Sea swimming in 3°C is just crazy OH. Do you wear a wetsuit?Well done for avoiding the Santas LMH
Off for gin tasting now. Who thought it was a good idea to put that on a Sunday afternoon?!
Donaldo - it will be cyclocross that Gobi is racing rather than cross country unless I'm mistaken.
Gobi - Does Mini G have any sporting interests?
Nice running chickadee.
You're good emzap - I only ever do the odd interval session if forced onto the treadie.
Aha - I thought the CX was just a typo round the wrong way!
Good "recovery" run then Chickadee!
emzap, strangely you're not the first to say that!One in the group did have full wetsuit. I did resort to neoprene gloves and hat but no wetsuit
Intervals sound like too much brain work for me :\^- I find it difficult enough to count lengths in the pool!
What: 30 mins, with some faster parts, all off road.Why: it was not what I had intended, but had promised to show someone round part of the Burnage parkrun course, so inevitably picked it up in parts.
Will not comment on open water swimming: OH did strike me as perfectly normal when I had the pleasure of meeting him! However...
Cricket was marginally better today; just a shame about the previous three days.
RFJ: hope that today's Fulham result was the first of many under Rene. I heard very good reports of him from other staff at United and they were more sorry to see him and Mike Phelan go than Fergie.
Some decent long runs being logged: hope that is it long run wise, LMH. Don't over cook things! Cotton wool time!
Marzipan bought, and cake will be wrapped in it shortly!
evening all, nice miles Lmh, & well raced Don!quick post from me, been on 2-day coaching course at Brunel so pretty flaked out now (not helped by dinner with friends last night so wasn't an early night either..)14 of us learning including 3 former international athletes so plenty of wise words available. Oh and Linford Christie on the track with his group yesterday too!Can't believe the cheek of the fella, trying to use it when UKA had it booked for usOnly running was light and part of the group coaching exercises.Knee still achey
3 degrees in the water OH? Don't you get the Gulf Stream up there? Seriously silly, if you ask me. I'm not surprised that you lasted only a few minutes. I suppose it might be likened to injury recovery therapy. As Tom Daley says, it's great when you come out.
LMH, I refer to Saint Delia, and she gives quantities for any size of cake, round or square. She's also partial to gin.
Proud Dad time Gobi.
Today, I came to the conclusion that the luminous gloop has just about cleared off the lungs. I still feel heavy (because I am), and unfit (because I am). But I did manage to go swimming and give the hour session a full working. Very pleased, and bits now ache.
Like the slip of god smacked Gobi, well done to little one
Well done Yesterday Don
Brain dead here now as just done Day 3 of the CIRF course (coach in running fitness) very much focused on technical skills rather than the actual running and training... learned a lot.....
So rest day other than some flying 30's and skills and drills....
Ale, yes good result indeed and hopefully will get us out of the mire.... amazing what happens with a change even though the players are the same.
chickadeee wrote (see)
no wetsuit??? you are nuts, OH do you cut holes into frozen lakes and jump in too?
That is the aspiration of two or three of our group. One currently working towards her ice mile (one mile in water under 5°C in ordinary swimming gear) I declined her invitation to join her, but offered kayak support!
Glad you're on the mend Blisters. Rather north of the main gulf stream here!We have almonds!
