Lyrics - Confusion in her eyes that says it all
Of course Paddy - I'd conveniently forgotten the two weeks with no running that I've just had!
I'll try to stop boring you all with it. What it comes down to is that my head says that I shouldn't race but my heart isn't happy with quitting.
What: probably a rideWhy: slightly lostLast hard: stopping my mind whirringLast rest: 4/8
Yesterday's lyrics were I Started Something by The Smiths.
I'd a lyric lined up for today LMH
It's warm but dull up here
Catch up time.
What: either a 5.5 miler or core at gym, haven't decided yetWhy: legs a bit shot still from the weekend, so don't know whether to rest themLast hard: saturdayLast rest: SundayLyrics: nope
LMH any idea why the swim causes these problems?OH cricket, blugh, why did England make these changes to the team? It was good as it was!Have a good one all.
morning all, on the plus side (to the cricket) its drizzly this morning by the Oval, mind you series is already won.lyric - yes indeed, think I started the DTT with these a couple of weeks ago...what - something easywhy - I've got postie's legslast rest - 13 dayslast hard - Tuesdayhave a great day
Should have got yesterday's lyrics ... I even was at the same school as Marr and Rourke (St Augustine's - a strange establishment!)
emzap - cricket, enough said
What: maybe run with group this eveningWhy; need to get back training again although rib still sore at nightLast hard: SundayLast rest: every day since SundayLyrics: definite no
emzap: Aussies finding their form belatedly.
oh that's a claim to fame! I didn't get them either
what: minute on minute off x 10 session done in the rain this morning with 10 warm and 7 cool down - swim later
last hard: this morning was
last easy: Monday
have a good day all
emzap - not sure it's the swim that causes the problems per se, more the fact that I can't just ease back and take my inhaler when I feel it starting. Riding big hills on the bike has the same effect - can't back off the effort or I'll fall off, can't take hands off the bars to get inhaler until I stop. When this first started happening in 2010 I could just back off the swim, get the breathing back under control and carry on. In Almere in 2011 I couldn't get my breathing sorted - partly I think because conditions were rough so it was hard to relax and recover in the water - but on Sunday whilst backing off and sorting the breathing worked initially it then just went again very quickly and irretrievably.
Ooops - don't remember you using the lyrics recently dustin but more than possible that you did.
Racing this weekend Wabo? Hope things are ok with/better for your daughter now.
Wabo - I'm a bit older than Marr and Rourke: although we overlapped, I don't recall either of them.Also possibly spent more time at the (Oasis) Gallaghers' school than they did ... I just went to orchestra rehearsals there on Saturday mornings!
Oval: Hope we get a few wickets now ...
lmh, I once saw my daughter having an asthma attack in the pool at swimming club, it wasn't nice and I was up in the stands so useless! Must be a difficult decision for you to have to make. I am not racing no, but I am off to Llangollen and plan is a long uphill and then back of 13+ miles running, possibly stroll up Snowdon on Sunday, so looking forward to it and not racing!
OH: my teaching career started at the now defunct (as well!) Sharston High just around the corner! And eldest went to the Gallaghers' school until I moved him!
Wabo: enjoy the hills this weekend!
What: hopefully25-30 mins this eveningWhy: if I am not too exhausted. Shifting the rubble from removing the chimney breast: already been to the tip three times this morning. Another couple of visits later. Also got to move a ton of top soil and a few hundredweight of stone. And its hot and sunny: just decided to have rest to watch the test only to see that it is raining at the Oval.
Okay, be prepared to be blown away (esp those that know Jnr.....)
Jnr just got his resuts for his GCSE's today... bearing in mind all his toubles back in years 7 & 8 with statements / suspensions and change of schools in relation to his Autisum and going back a year, he has just produced a fantastic set of results....1 A*, 5 A's, 5 B's and a CWOW / Fantastic / Excellent / Awesome / Brilliantand any other words you could put to that too so say well done / Bravo etc....
NOTHING CAN HOLD YOU DOWN................. JUST DO IT,
one very chuffed Mum and Dad
Intervals for me - 2 x 5 x 400m, off 100m recovery and 400m between sets, 2nd set much better. 1:34, 1:32, 1:33, 1:32, 1:32, 1:32, 1:29, 1:29, 1:28, 1:26, 7m in total with warm up and cool down
RFJ: pass on my congrats to Junior! The lad done well! So what's next for him (apart from parkrunning!!)?
Wow well done Junior RFJ
wow RFJ, you've every right to be proud that's smashing
LMH, hope the test swim goes well and you get your confidence back. it sounds to me more like a mental issue if you don't mind me saying... I get the same thing when I try to stick my head under water which is why i can't swim properly... you used to be able to complete the swim ok so there is no reason why it shouldn't work again. Confidence !! All the best.
Alehouse, will do - He's off to Queen Mary College in Basingstoke to do - Maths, Further Maths, Phyics and Economics....
I didn't have exercise induced asthma before chickadee which is what makes the difference I think. Started three years ago, diagnosed two years ago but I didn't get to race last year due to other health issues. I'd just assumed that the new meds I'd been prescribed worked and I would not have a problem again - and I didn't in the Olympic earlier this year.
Proud Dad indeed RFJ.
What nothing in the endWhy too nervous about PP1's GCSE'sLyrics no
Many congratulations to RFJ jnr.
Didn't sleep properly as unusualy I was frettibg about how this morning would go. PP1 was after a tough accademic scholarship for her schools sixth form. She unfortunately dropped 3 points but still retains the award so she gets to go where she wants.
Well done to PP1!
Well done PP1 as well.
Only 3km done. Legs just couldn't do it. let's hope the 8 hours of travel tomorrow is a rest for them and they work on Saturday...
