Lyrics: Got bottle, I'm going to use it
Intention, I feel inventive

DIY: has to be done. Unfortunately haven't worked for the last six weeks, so no pay...hence the lyrics (title is in the first line, so you get lines 2 and 3!).
LMH: felt quite confident on the stepladder!

What: seeing physio, so nothing until I get her advice
Why: Achilles rehab

Blisters:  would love to do a session that's too easy. Or, indeed, any session.

Paddy: good to see you, its not just swimming you never have a bike with you when travelling either.

Tom: On the commitee, it took me years to get off the damn thing

NZC: Yesterday was a fairly idylic bike ride, enjoy the Garmin. I run way faster in races.

AH: DIY............. argh thats time which could be spent sleeping!

OH: Hope your recruit is happy

last Nights 6 x 800 of 1 minute recoveries went 3.03 / 2.58/ 2.59 / 2.57 / 2.57/ 2.58 followed up by 4 x200 off 30 secs 42,42,41,38, nice and steady but annoyed by that first 800.

Morning all,

What       Doing nothing today.

Why      Work dominating at the moment.

Lyrics -   No again (must be  on the trot now).

No time  for chat.  Have a great day everyone.

Morning from a very cold and frosty West of Scotland.

Yesterdays lyrics: 'Addicted to love' by Robery Palmer. Great video

Coffee calling

Back later.

Nice to have you back Paddy- hope you'll stick around and soon be fixed.

OH - good news. Hope they can start soon and take some of the pressure off.

RW - shame when that happens but guess it's inevitable at times. I'm certainly feeling an adverse impact from the extra hours I'm working at the moment.

Alehouse - I thought you were retired

What:                     swim set
Why:                      I need to at last not lose any more
Last hard:              17/11
Last rest:                23/11

Lyrics - no.

Morning all,

Leg feels better than yesterday, but still not gonna decide till later whether to run tonight, would rather miss a couple of days than a couple of weeks.

Got a ceiling to rip down and re-board today, so will count that as cross training

No idea on the lyrics again.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Short cycle route this morning

5km tomorrow will be interesting But no work till Sunday

Mybe a run later  a little run

29/11/2012 at 14:39
Lyrics - yes, great band

20 minutes slow jogging this morning - again no pain just a bit of an ache, though I wouldn't want to step it up for a few days yet.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Physio report: was pleased with progress. One of the main limiting factors is scar tissue, which she worked on. Further exercises prescribed, and back a week tomorrow.

Enjoy LFoM, Pammie.

Pie sounds exciting, Wabo!  Not too much now!

Re lyrics: saw this band in the Norbreck Castle Hotel in Blackpool, with probably no more than 200 people there. This was 1979, and they played today's number: it wasn't released until 1980, though. It was quite catchy and the guy I went with later asked for it in some record shop or other but was told it didn't exist! The week or so before we had seen Adam and the Ants, who at the time were a punk band: we left as there was quite a bit of trouble.

29/11/2012 at 16:58

this pie I am going to have is the best, its a steak pie and just yum.

Ok alehouse, I wont eat all the potatoes but must have all my pie!

29/11/2012 at 16:59

ooh I did know t he lyrics!

29/11/2012 at 17:10

Wabo: sadly I can't afford a posh pie, hence the lyrics (well, not quite true...get my pension tomorrow!).
LMH:  whilst I have retired, I was working 3 or so days most weeks up until my Achilles op. Meant to ask phys if I am up to doing a couple of days a week up to Christmas: would take my mind off things and relieve the boredom!

29/11/2012 at 18:54

Wabo - in my previous running life, I knew exactly how fast I was running. Now it is much more difficult. Of course we all like to think we are running better than we are.

I love pies too.

What: warmup with a few strides, 4 x 400m with 400m recovery and short warm down. This I tried to programme into my garmin. Realised that the lap recovery was recording as if it was my interval, so tried to change it, but I only got 2 of the intervals that made much sense. 1.46 and 1.43, so I'll have another go next week, and see if I can get it right.

I wasn't feeling that great - think my back or neck is out, so think I need a visit to the chiro.

29/11/2012 at 19:24

7 icy miles tonight

Go ahead for 4 day week as from 1 April

AH when I was off due to my #clavicle/ribs I spent a lot of time looking at DIY needing to be done. Needless to say precious little of it got done. Whern I was fit there was no time again

29/11/2012 at 20:24

Excellent OH - are you and your partners still recruiting then with another one on their way out and you going part time?

AH - I hope you get the o ahead for a couple of days a week to keep you entertained. Mind you, not long until the xmas break now - thankfully!

NZC - you're more technologically advanced than me - I've never even tried to programme intervals or any other workout - just record speed, distance and HR.

All this talk of pies made me change my dinner plans

Lyrics, yes, instantly.
Adam and the Ants? You're right, they did get a lot of production polish and were the representatives of that unusual crossover between raw punk and 80s stylised stuff. Listen carefully to the hammering of both the drummers on a proper stereo and it's mind blowing. I think that the feedback I got from fellow 6th formers about live punk gigs frightened me away from going to gigs. It was pretty raw and vicious then, not exactly a gentle start to live music. If you turned up you might end up with an ear piercing by safety pin in the mosh pit. Dress code was bin bag only (optional). Nowadays I listen to some of the stuff and there was a lot of raw talent about.

Training? er. Rest day? I sent my large daughter to swim a mile or so, hard. Small is complaining about too much Wii, but it's probably the jabs. Hope is for a long-ish one tomorrow, many other time constraints permitting.
