Todays lyrics:All your dreams are madeWhen you're chained to the mirror of your  razor blade

Why: Habit as you all know.

LMH: I remember 'Minks easy'. Wonder how Minx is doing these days ?. She used to post on here a few years ago.

I commute by bus 35mins to/from work so read on those journeys

ale: No thanks re that book

Coffee time now.

Blisters -Two possibilities - you miscounted or you were more tired for this swim, or of course a combination of them both? Ten minutes is quite a lot to 'lose' over that distance.

DD - enjoy tomorrow's ride.

Unfortunately I can't read on a bus or in a car though I am fine on a train.

What:            nothing
Why:             smt after work
Last hard:     21/10
Last rest:       4/11

Lyrics - no.

15/11/2012 at 07:19

What: rest day
Why: 2x 550 metres in 10 mins each with an hour and a half recovery last night
Last hard: that was

Reading: rarely read except on holiday or incapacitated. Reading about a book a day at present.

Lyrics: no

hello all...
ah yes , Minks if you're lurking pop in and say hello!
Reading - hmm those that don't get time are possibly non commuters (or driving commuters)
I have 2hrs+ a day at SouthWestTrains' pleasure, so its newspaper/book/sleep
what - 6 or 7 easy, eldest has ladies hockey training tonight and I have 75minutes to kill
why - rested yesterday as legs achey
last rest -- erm, yesterday
last hard - tuesday
lyric - yes indeedy

I pretty much always read for half hour or so in bed before I sleep, is a habit I've had since at school.
15/11/2012 at 11:06

Lyrics: Yes
What: Spin Class tonight
Why: Tapering for Saturday
Last hard: Yesterday sadly
Last rest: Last Thursday
Hurting everywhere today and it seems like a mountain to climb to get back to where i want/need to be. I've got two Murakami books because more than one person leved me last Christmas so if anyone wants
Alehouse, cracking effort, well done!
Blisters: Where is the answer?

15/11/2012 at 11:40
What: Nothing.
Why: No time. Job interview this morning, back to work, then out tonight.
Last hard: Wednesday.
Last rest: Monday.

Lyrics yes! Had to repeat them a couple of times before they sprang to life.

I work in libraries and archives and love reading! Rarely manage it on my train commute as it's so packed but I make time at home or by getting the bus.

Good luck gg
15/11/2012 at 13:48

good luck with the interviw GG!

I can't read in the car either ... but that's because I'm driving . I know women are supposed to be able to multi-task but I've yet to master this one ...

A lot of Murakami books going ...  My colleague is really into Murakami as an author but even she didn't get into the running book.

what: speedwork later
why: freezing fog this morning meant I missed by run. Cold air + hard running = asthma attack
last hard: that'll be tonight then
last rest: 17/11
lyrics: ring a bell, I think I know the tune

15/11/2012 at 17:00

What: Short run with JS group shortly
Why: It's Thursday
Last Hard: Monday
Last rest: Today
Lyrics: No

I read a few books but yet to read a book about running/runners
Not a commuter  - drove 70 miles to work over M62 for 6 months of my life - never again! Now live 5 min walk away from work but usually drive as I need the car.

AH well done - assumng 1.5h recovery was in the middle and included rehydration!
StrayCelt - all the best for Saturday
GGG good luck

15/11/2012 at 17:01
Good evening

Lyrics - yes

I too have a copy of that Murakami book, bought for me as a present. Sadly didn't do to much for me either.

Club night tonight may have to loaf a little as I have a very tight hamstring - a possible legacy from Tuesday session.

Best of luck with the interview GG
15/11/2012 at 17:02

OH: indeed, rehydration was involved! You seem to have made a good recovery!

15/11/2012 at 17:26

Glad you're feeling well enough to run OH.

GGG - fingers crossed. When do you find out?

See you Saturday Straycelt!

Tom - take it easy!

15/11/2012 at 17:35

Sorry been a frqantic day well not frantic just busy. Bike came a cropper cycle home this morn  in the fog  but can't blame  The Fog (now thats a good book) not sure whats wrong  brain didn't take it in  but something to do with the front gear, derailler (sp!)) wear and tear or summat felt like bike was dragging somehow managed to cycle to shop don't know how or if it was wise  shop is 2 miles away sorry a bit me me and i guess i should know more about bike mechanics

Books love them just don't seem to have the time nowadays i have started so many just don't seem to finish them. Can't remember if its on the list but i like Why Die by Graeme Sims. Its all about Percy Cerutty who seemed an interesting man and i wonder what it was like to be coached by him

Also the famous Yellow book. The Van  Aaken method (English version) By the man himself Dr Ernst Van Aaken. The original German Version is supposedly longer

I also have Marathon Training by Manfred Steffny  its in German apparently not in English print i don't speak German just know the odd words. Perhaps i should learn so i can read the thing

Have so many others

LMH the other nights shift was just normal not getting chaotic yet  just changing the promotional offers

What: 2 miles cycling 8 miles walking - i jest not
Why: as above  things to do people to see
Last Hard: Todays cycle
Lyrics no

15/11/2012 at 19:42

Good to survive with no mishaps OH. Tnx for good wishes.
GG hope i'view a success.
 Back from spin, hot and sweaty. Must balance out with a good beer and a curry. Ideal race prep
