Why: A recovery run from yesterdays Fartlek and legs are still bit heavy today.
Yesterdays lyrics;were' Killer Queen' by Queen
Off tomorrow up north to get our new addition.
A black labrador pup ! Chaos is about to ensue.
Have agood one, catch up soon as usual.
Oh nice birkmyre - working or show stock?
NZC - it doesn't seem long ago that you were telling us about it getting too warm. Time seems to pass so quickly.
What: speed swim set (I use the term loosely)/turboWhy: doing what it says on the tin (my schedule is on the fridge)Last hard: not being back to my usual pace yesterdayLast rest: 25/4
Lyrics - yes.
hello everyone, I'm safely back from sunny Tenerife where I basically did bu88er all. I went off barely able to walk, let alone run. By the middle of the holiday I could just about walk without limping. I did do one 'power walk' of 4 miles and another run walk of a little over 3 miles but that is it in terms of exercise. Something has to happen from now on though as I ate and drank as though I was running every day and my clothes are rather tighter than they were!
We got back on Tuesday night and it was back to work again yesterday and walked back into more of the same sh*t, different day. I am so glad I'm leaving and am quite looking forward to my exit interview with HR. I leave on 30th June. Wibble.
I may stay away until I get back into some kind of regular exercise. I'll read, but likely not post.
Club night last night, out with the big boys again & for the 1st time it actually felt comfortable. After weeks of just about hanging on, not only did it feel ok, I could actually join in the conversation without gasping for air. Very happy to actually notice an improvement in my fitness.
Exciting Birkmyre, you got a name yet?
Mava - Hope you had a great holiday, good to see there's been some improvement.
What: 6 mile Fartleks
Why: Felt right
Last Rest: Monday
Last Hard: Sunday
Lyrics: Finally, yes. Though I now have the song stuck in my head which I'm not too happy about.
Birkmyre thanks for the lyrics again. This is the 1st time ever I've known them 3 days in a row
Mava glad to hear you had a good hol. Hope the knee continues to improve
NZC I remember going to Oz and having a fire in 10 deg weather. Is this the same in NZ? Do you say it's weather for a fire when it drops below 10 deg?!
What: core at gym
Why: it's Thursday and the fizz says so
Last hard: staying awake at orchestra last night
Have a good day all.
mava: Glad you'd a good holiday.
emzap: No probs re lyrics
Jeb: Yeah the new pup is called Geordie ! MissBs choice and don't ask me why either.
The lyrics are just about the distance I'm going to travel in the car to collect the pup tomorrow
birymyre: I'm not fond of black dogs
runners trotts turned into general trotts so no been aroung for a few days
Have a good one
What: Possibly light run later/ OlimpieWhy: Went karting last night and feel tired/ relieves stiffness Last hard: SundayLasst rest: Tues
Lyrics: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRGH, not that ****ing song again! Hate it!
AF - taking the black dog on a long run can help. Teach him to live life your way
I just love dogs. Full stop
And yes know the lyrics 2nd day on the trot - that never happens
Mava - welcome back
No run today resting up but no work for 11 days bit of time off.
Will start agin tommorrow
typo can stay
Good luck with the puppy Birkmyre
Just heard back from 1 interview. The one I really wanted I didn't get. Reason = I was overqualified. I had contacted them before the interview and asked if this was a good way into the field I want to get into and they said yes. They said I'd need to work my way up...then they turn round and say I'm too qualified. I am not a happy bunny.
Leg feeling dodgy again as stretching every day as fizz told me fallen by the way-side so am going to relax this evening with a glass of wine and probably do some stretching!
Can we see a photo of the pup once s/he's home?
Yesterday's club run was hard, I blame the idiot who made up the route (me).
What: RestWhy: Needed, and busy clearing tree debris (one less Leylandi in the world!)Last hard: 1 dayLast rest: 2 daysLyrics: Yes
Planning some hill running tomorrow.
Birkmyre - good luck with the puppy - remember to hide your shoes!
Lyrics - yes!!
Mava - welcome back - baby steps - you'll be back running before you know it!
JEB - wonderful when you feel that improvement - how old are you?
emzap - it is cold when it drops below 10 degrees! Sorry you didn't get the job you wanted.
Paddy - good luck with the half!
What: About 6 miles with Mae - always hard work, but she didn't pull as much as usual. She was a very satisfied customer afterwards.
