A boy is born in hard time Mississippi...
Just off the phone from talking to the hospital about my mother, and she is back on the same ward she was discharged from 12 hours ago. Things will hopefully become clearer tomorrow. And thanks for the kind thoughts everyone.
What: stretchWhy: not allowed to run
The artist was 64 yesterday. Actually I thought he was older!
ale: Hope your mum gets better soon
Yesterdays lyrics: 'Hanging on the telephone' by Blondie
Off out now.
Should have got yesterday's lyrics. Don't know today's (I don't think!)
Ale sorry to hear about your Mum, hope she gets better soon
What: another filling at the dentist, without anaestheticWhy: the needles are far worse than the pain...Last hard: the 2 hill reps I did as part of my run last night, instead of running club (it was sunny when I got home, and given the weather at the moment, was guaranteed not to be an hour later!).
Have fun today OH.
Have a good day all.
What:35mins easy/steadily done.
Dry, mild and no wind. Not a bad day for getting out.
Morning all, Ale - best wishes, your mum is in the best place possible at the momentEmz - very brave. Can't see myself how the needle 'scratch' is more painful than nerve drilling...AF - good work. Do you need a whole new wardrobe now the trouser battle is won (or is the war not over?)LmH - sounds good. Was delighted to note after QoP visit last night that the local chippy is celebrating 'Norway day' on Saturday with 99p cod and chips all day. Thats lunch (and dinner) sorted!what - U11 coaching tonight , somewhere will squeeze in 3-4 easywhy - tempo yesterday, ended up being 8.3 miles (according to map my run) in ~58 minutes. not sure that's quite right but checked my log and a similar route 2 months ago took 65 (as a 'run'). Legs felt mashed afterwards which QoP partially sorted.last rest - Fridaylast hard - yesterdaylyric - don't think sohave a groovy day
Hope the news is good this morning Alehouse.
Bargain Dustin! Glad the QoP helped. I've booked myself in for some torture when we get home.
You're very good doing hill reps on your own emzap.
Lovely day here too birks - just waiting for the in-laws to get up/depart and then we'll be out enjoying it ourselves. At last I think enjoying it is what we're supposed to be doing though as it involves more time on the bike it may be more a case of looking forward to the ice cream afterwards
What: I shall mostly be riding my bicycleWhy: it's what Mark wants to do/I need to doLast hard: being enthusiastic about the aboveLast rest: 12/4
Lyrics - yes.
nzc: I've found some classic footage/documentary programmes on you-tube of John Walker and Peter Snell.
I can honestly call this 'research' because Mrs B is doing New Zealand for her Primary School class Commonwealth country for their Commonwealth Games topic
Needle phobia Dustin. trying to sort it out, but not as easy as just "getting on with it" unfortunately...wish it was!
alehouse sorry to hear your mum is poorly hope she gets better soon
Lyrics yep love this artist..
lmh I need some QOP without a doubt!! Enjoy the bike its glorious!
oh emzap give me the needle any day, although if its not a deep filling I get it!
what: club session later
why: I seem to need people around me when I run these days! Self mojo has done a runner!
last hard: last night off road 3 miles
last easy: Tuesday
have a good un all
Wabo, I think my mojo has run off with yours.... if i find them I shall point in your direction.
Hopefully something later if work does not get in the way
Saw my K(Q)OP on Monday, hip flexors were in a mess
Well we only managed to cover 42 miles in three hours today - but that did involve 877m of climb according to the Garmins. A glorious day to be out and riding and I did my first successful ascent of Col D'Portsdown followed, fortunately not too closely by a non stop ascent of Col D'Portesham. So much for my easy day before tomorrow's planned biggy!
Emzap - I find that I'm much better with needles if I can watch them going in - may be worth a try? The other technique that I use at the dentist (I used to be totally phobic) is consciously taking my mind somewhere else, usually a tri or marathon and going through how the race in detail in my mind. Dentist wasn't very keen on this 'absence' but warmed to it when he realised that it meant that I didn't hit him!
Wabo - hope you find your mojo soon, they can be cunning little things.
RFJ - I'm sure yours can't be far away, you seem to be training well.
I am running in the Helensburgh 10k tonight at 7:30pm. It's a lovely evening for a race - never done it before but seemingly almost 1000 people enter, so it's chipped, which is always good. Part of the Kodak series of races. Legs still a bit tired from the half on Sat but I'm sure I'll be fine. Will report back later, or tomorrow
Hope it goes well Donaldo - you certainly have a busy race schedule at the moment!
No OW here but I did enjoy an hours easy run in the sun.
Good luck Donaldo
What: 2.81 milesWhy: running won't get done by itselfLast Hard Today a bitLyrics: I did google intrigued who was 64. Surprised me too
Been sunny most of the day up here
don: Aw ra best mate.
What: 30 min easy cycle
Why: stir crazy!
Ale: Sorry to hear about your Mum, not easy! I hope she is ok!
Don: Busy busy! Good luck!
Beautiful day here, spent most of it sneezing in the new cut grass in the park. Other than that, polishing up for my last exam on Wednesday.. I swear I haven't had this much time to prepare for any exam. I know it to death and its actually boring me now!
1 week and 2 days till CAPE TOWN!!!
What: fun beach run (3.5 mile) as Smaug ( 27 kts westerly!)
why: day 4 CW Challenge
last hard: Monday
next rest : tomorrow
Birkmyre - fantastic old footage. I was running as a kid the same time that Walker was also running his first x country races.
I was in London in '74 when he and Bayi ran in the Commonwealth Games in NZ. And when he broke the world record, I was home in NZ with my first child.
Bayi is in NZ at the moment with a group of Tanzanians for training and has met up again with Quax, Walker and Jelley.
What: Mowed the lawns!
I might have gone for a run if I'd already watched the video
