Lyrics - Livin' my life in a slow hell

There's an error on the 'updated' site Wabo - same as with the spell check. You need to upload to a photo hosting site and link to the url through the tree symbol (at least I think that's what the technologically competent amongst us said).

What:                probably a swim/sauna/steam
Why:                 the sensible head is wrestling for control
Last hard:          not running more
Last rest:           31/1

Yesterday's lyrics were Idiot Child by Madness.

morning all,
LmH - you listen to that sensible head!
What - club run, its timed handicap tonight but I don't think I'll be breaking any records
Why - QoP almost reduced me to tears. Sciatic (sp.?) issue so elbows in bottom & thigh, bliddy hurt a lot. So told to take it easy for a few days, and sit on a hockey ball, fortunately have a few of those round the house.
last rest - Thursday
last hard - yesterday hurt, run wise, Tuesday

lyric - not sure

What:45mins off road

Why: Something a wee bit different. Got a bit of time to do it at the moment

Stray: Posted an earlier daily thread start over in General.

LMH: Just be sensible. Defo a 'No' to a race, any race at the moment

Lyrics: Mmm not sure.

Coffee calling

Dustin owwwww.  Hope it gets better soon!
LMH sensible head is probably right...

What: maybe a short walk around some nature reserves
Why: I am in agony after yesterday!  Wrist (that I fell on 3 months ago) has swollen up again and right hip is very sore!
Last hard: being brave enough to climb up that mountain
Lyrics: nope (but LMH is this how you're feeling?!)

Have a good day all.

What: First run post USA trip
Why: VLM creeping up
Last Hard: Lexington half on Saturday
Last Rest: Tuesday
Hi y'all....back from deep south and redneck/biblebelt country. Great trip with 2 halves, dallas and Lexington, with a new post diagnoses pb of 2.04.15 inside 80% MHR so looking okay for London. Lots to catch up on. Best wishes to all esp those with injury/condition/illness events. Good to be back in the warmth, yes the warmth and in a much mre +ve frame of mind. Will do catch up later today

Dustin - I don't like that S word - be careful.

LMH - hows the body

Birks - Jesus - a change!!

Here  - 4 k swim in record time followed by strength. 5 or 6 miles run later

It's beginning to look a lot like training!!!

04/04/2013 at 13:07

It is a bit emzap - and I've already used 'Never Ending Story' LOL. Sorry to hear about your wrist and hip - get yourself a support (don't suppose you took yours on holiday).

Paddy - go on, make me even more jealous - what's your new 4k swim PB? As for me, well the RHR asn't further elevated after yesterday's run so that's better than it may have been. Sensible head was delayed on the way to the gym so I did 30 mins on the treadie including 4 x 3 minutes at 13.5kph, not exactly where I was but a glimpse of it. Once sensible head arrived I just swam for 2k

Good to have you back and in a positive frame of mind SC!

Dustin - hope it comes to nothing.

Consistent consistency is the key Pammie - you'll get there.

Paddy: So did you do a double take with me running 45mins off road. Well am currently unemployed so can run a wee bit later and a bit longer.

04/04/2013 at 15:44

Glad you managed an enjoyable run yesterday, LMH.

welcome back, straycelt

Dustin: eeeek - I remember my KoP in London doing that . Due to lack of funds I had to stop massages  and am using the poor girl's version of foam roaller and an evil spiky ball (invention of the devil, no doubt )

emzap: hike sounds great

Pammie: good to have you back

what: 6.5 easy miles
why: my legs wouldn't turn
last hard: Monday
last rest: Tuesday
lyrics: no

04/04/2013 at 15:58

4 miles for me today, really slow including some walking!  Meant to be 7 miles at pace but had nothing in the legs whatsoever so just took it easy, with a 20 in mind for this Sunday.

Lyrics - nope, I thought I did, but then realised I didnt! 

04/04/2013 at 17:50

Dustin - ouch - hopes it gets sorted soon

12.25m here on a nice steady run apart from the wind, cold and snow....

Take care

04/04/2013 at 19:18

LMH - 70:15............  hopefully below 70 isnt far away.

Managed 7 miles this evening. After 8 yesterday and this mornings swim it was a lazy run. Must start working on running speed. Ironically running is my weakest link at the moment.

Don - those days happen. the 20 will be all the better for it.



04/04/2013 at 19:35

Evening all

What 8 commute
Why cutting down on miles for taper
Lyrics No

Remember to keep your head LMH

Probably same again tomorow as bike is still at work.

04/04/2013 at 19:39

6.4 miles done with JS group on a very pleasant evening.

04/04/2013 at 20:38

Just one bad one donaldo - you'll be fine for your 20.

Wowzer Paddy - you're fast!

I'll try postie.

You're doing well running whilst on nights RFJ.

04/04/2013 at 20:38

Took this photo about 40 minutes ago.  It is indeed a pleasant evening.


04/04/2013 at 21:01


Found this below an interesting read

donaldo: Nice picture

04/04/2013 at 21:18

LMH - thats ok but I have to get over my abject failure as soon as i get in open water. I'm hoping the planned OW swims from late April will solve this. Some people tell be that you can swim faster in the sea in a wetsuit - that remains to be seen!! Delighted with the process though. Interesting thing is that two yougsters have started training in the pool in the mornings (one is only 13/14, the other 17) These fly past me with ease and grace - one is a national champ in his age group and the other not far behind. Oh and they must cover at least 6k in their sessions - they deffo do more ethan me!!. Trying to keep up with them has helped!

Fast Paddy,
Postie talking about taper is making me panic. I might have to start training soon.
Dustin, let me get this riaght, you paid for this pain?

Donaldo: Amazing photo!

Birks: who's blog is that? Mike somebody.

LMH? Lyics YES!!!!!!!!! I knew that I knew them, but it took me ages to actually twig, with two wrong leads.

Ear issues: I did manage a full day at work, although as deaf as a post on one side. At least the pain was subdued. The flip side is that if I move suddenly I rattle due to all the pills I'm popping. I had to get my daughter to check that I'd got up this morning, just in case I missed the alarm clock. Fortunately I was awake ready. Still no training yet.

Keep up the good work.
