Todays lyrics:My grandfather and me.Around Nassau town we did roam
Yesterdays lyrics: 'The boys are back in town.' by Thin Lizzy.
What:4.5M Steadily done
Why: Didn't fancy a Fartlek on top of yesterdays Tempo run.
Coffee calling so catch up soon.
Blisters: For my first IM I went with pretty much the approach you are following, since then I have changed to 1 x interval session, 1 x long swim, 1 x part intervals part drills. In all honesty it hasn't made a huge difference, I'm a bit quicker but not a lot. I think to we runners coming late to swimming that the best approach is that swimming is something we have to do to get to the bike.
what: 2K swim setwhy: Easy dayLast Hard: YesterdayLast Rest: 6/12
Had a stonking 10K last Saturday and took 1 minute 36 seconds off my PB which at 55 didn't ought to be possible, that or I have been taking it easy for the past 13 years! Still missed the 40 minute mark though by 6 seconds!
Fantastic DD - well done!
Blisters - I find that keeping concentration and holding my stroke is harder when I'm 'just swimming' and that breaking the sets and having small rests makes it easier to keep the effort level up. It would be interesting to see how your time altered through each 400m if you did 4 x 400m off say 30 seconds. I can swim 10 x 100m off 10 seconds faster than I can swim 1k (when you take the rest time off the total of course). Swimming three times a week made me a better but not a much faster swimmer.
What: something on the turboWhy: will only have running for the next three daysLast hard: 2/12Last rest: 14/12
Lyrics - no.
I would say the same about swimming its easier to maintain good technique swimming intervals with short breaks.Ditto swimming more made me a better but no quicker swimmer.
Lyrics: Yes and got yesterdays as well.
Hello all, DD - super stuff with the 10k, next time will be sub-40Wabo - more well dones with shedding the pounds...almost there!what - just done a brief stint on the dreadmill, 16minute mini pyramid (8x2mins up and down), just the 2.2mileswhy - bit jaded after last night's recovery 5miler was a bit quicker than planned (37.50) + department 'do' today, I imagine that will kick off around midday....last hard - tuesdays tracklast rest - fridaylyric - no idea
Nice character building, Tom, and an even nicer PB, DD.
Lyrics: yes...and I think we may have had them before.
What: noothing, although if there is a break in the clouds may go for a walk (actually it may be a paddle).
Got back from the hospital feeling quite bouyant yesterday now that I have a treatment plan, to find that one of my friends had had a heart attack and died. At one time he was a pretty good runner, gaining area representative honours, but over the last 10 years had put on an enormous amount of weight, although he continued to try to run: he achieved a certain notoriety as he was last in every one of our club's summer 5k races for the last two years, so 8 in all. I sat next to him at the University Christmas Dinner on the 8th and he was in fine form. He was 66: Ron Hill has just emailed me "So how long have we got? Go out and enjoy life!" Not a happy Christmas for his 2 daughters. Funeral on 27th.
Blimey, ale. Didn't another friend of your just die a few weeks ago ? Weather is horrible indeed. Miserable, grey, windy and cold. What you guys have as rain is supposed to come down here as snow around Christmas. While it's nice to have a white one it's rubbish for running. The forecast is for plus 5 on Boxing Day so it won't last what: 11 and a bitwhy: it seems a good distancelast hard: fighting the windlast rest: Mondaylyrics: no

Well done DD
What 9 very wet milesWhy Dropping a chrismas prest off, then getting the train home, before picking bike left at the station last night and cycling home...Last Hard - SatLast Rest - Weds
Alehouse. Now that news is a bit of a pisser. Sympathies and all that but I'm not sentimental about any individual's tenuous grasp on life. We are born, we get taxed, we die (and get taxed again). I truly hope that you can all give the chap a good send off. I remember a few people for the warmth of the send off, and an disappointed about the wake each of my Grandparents were given. My other Grandad got a decent bunchuck. Much respect there.
I am annoyed about not knowing yesterday's lyrics.Today's have also got another very familar ring to them. The Nassau bit is throwing me though.By the way. Am I supposed to do some training in order to stay here?
I did make some fresh pasta. Does that count?
Google check lyrics, familiarity check is OK. The second line was not one I was familiar with though.
