Lyrics: And once you're gone you can't come back

Morning. I only start threads if I can't sleep; battling a cold and find it difficult to snooze with a blocked nose. The only time I felt okay all day yesterday was during a 6M jog.

Alehouse: hope the op was a success and you're on the way back. It's been too long.

Entered the Cambridge Half for March next year.

Yesterday's lyrics were needles and pins, The Searchers.

Not the greatest of nights here, either, which is hardly surprising. Just can't get into a comfy position with one leg elevated.

Lyrics: no

morning all,
AleH - glad it went well. I know that feeling about sleeping: had similar prob when my ankle was op-ed 2 yrs ago, especially if you dont normally sleep on your back. But rest well and you'll soon be back in the groove.
LmH - good luck for Sunday, no pressure really after recent problems, so just enjoy it.
Blisters - good work in the pool. Time to ditch the rubber ring yet? 

What - either 6 tempo at lunchtime or steady club run tonight. Hopefully the former so I can get back to coaching the U11s tonight. some easy hills with first of the (junior) xc races this weekend.
Lyric - sound very familiar, will continue to ponder

morning all

blisters thats some swimming!

alehouse as everyone says day 1 on the road back, nice one.

Oh my the physio.... He is about 6' 5", and when he sticks his elbow into your shoulder blade!!!! It was excrutiating, he asked was I being brave..... So I yelped a  bit, didnt want him thinking it didnt hurt! Good news, muscular problem and a trapped or impinged nerve.  I am relieved because I have had this niggle for 3 months now and although not terrible it isnt going either!

What: club run later

last hard: physio's elbow!

Paddy, if the cap fits...

My own PITA was right cheek, and a whinge rather than anything else, as was the buzz in the left calf. On the basis that I have done effectively the sum total of bugger all running recently I thought it was time to put that to rights with a nice long run. Emphasis on the nice bit. My usual long run, gives me something like a 5 mile bail out at various points, so I could make decisions as I went. Plan A was 16 miles, plan B the full 21.6.
It took a while to settle into the run for some reason, usually I'm flowing nicely by mile 5, but I found myself counting them off. By about 10 I was moving nicely and quite happy. We'll do the whole thing then. By 16 I was still OK, a few different aches from those I was expecting. I checked my watch on the next bit: at 18.75 miles I hit The Wall with a thump. Both calves tightened and a black cloud hung over my head. The rest of the route was uphill. Dig digga dig, make sure that 20 appears on the watch and bail out. A total of 20.75 miles bagged.

5 minutes in a fresh cold bath was mandatory. Not pleasant, but necessary.

My excuse for doing this on a Thursday, is because I can. I've got a night shift tonight. Next on my list is some sleep. Just as soon as I've done the shopping.

Paddy - as Blister's so eloquently put it

Blisters - isn't that a huge increase in distance? You're mad! Hope it helped you get some sleep. I'm mostly glad that I don't work shifts anymore.

chickadee - you're not lazy, you're recovering.

A slow mile in the pool for me on the way home from work which has helped to ease some niggles caused by the smt.

18/10/2012 at 16:56

I can never get a cap to fit properly.



18/10/2012 at 17:20


What 6.3 commute
Why last taper miles before Sunday.
Lyrics no

From now on its purely mental preperation.

What number are you LMH and where will you be hanging out before thre start as I'll try and find you if theres time. May be going to the Boundary House after.

18/10/2012 at 18:33

I think it's 579 postie - how about you? Will probably be shivering in or around the grandstand until the off with Mark (husband) and Rich K.  Won't be able to hang around afterwards as Mark will be fed up and want to head home.

18/10/2012 at 18:52

Alehouse - got my fingers crossed for you, hope it does the trick!

Me - haven't run for over a week - 'flu - think I might try something this morning.

18/10/2012 at 19:57


Okay catch up time again for me.

18/10/2012 at 19:59

apologies on the lyrics, I thought they were better known. i won't spoil until tomorrow.
