Todays lyrics:I've been down - I've been beat
Yesterdays lyrics; 'Highway to Hell' by AC-DC
Why: I enjoy these sessions.
Tom: No not competitive these days. However saw a race that I fancy doing in spring of next year. Very early stages though !
We'd a guy early 20s in yesterday enquiring about joining the Royal Marines. ( I work currently in an armed forces careers office). They asked him about his fitness levels.' I've competed for Great Britain in the Decathlon !' was his reply
Love it birkmyre. Sounds like a good job but I'm assuming this is the one that's coming to an end soon?
Should have got yesterday's lyrics and todsay's sound like something I'd listen to.
What: hopefully an easy run laterWhy: dentist at 0900hrsLast hard: going back to the dentist today is going to be hardLast rest: 29/8
Lyrics - no.
Morning, and a beautiful, if somewhat chilly, one. Good forecast and there is an outside chance that my tomatoes may start to ripen in the next few days!
What: hopefully this evening will see something like 5 k walk including stretches, walking backwards and 6 x 25 seconds.Why: progress???
Leg kept waking me again, but after being up for an hour things are easing.
Hope the dentist is not as bad as you fear, LMH!
Birks: I imagine that young man competed for GB as a junior as I think its quite a long time since there was a senior Scottish decathlete in the GB team. Are you still planning on finishing work in the near future to become a professional athlete?
hiyanice sessions yesterday tom, Chickalike a few others I'm having an easy couple of days, so did 5 easy last night, will do the same tonight.Still trying to work out the logistics re autumn marathon, not helped by getting dates thru for both grown up and kids cross country races....An evening with the calendar (scheduler) beckons..think I know todays words
What 6.38 (2 wu, 4@Tempo, .38 cd)Why Thursday Lyrics no
Another hard day at work looms
Splits were 7:22, 7:21, 6:21, 6:22, 6:23, 6:17, 7:43.
Surprised at the consistanceyshowing theres life in the old dog yet.
Also used new racing shoes in prep for Abo.
2 mile swim d&d
Very cautious with the running - tried last night and wasnt quite right. All my favourite September races are passing me by - boo hoo
LMH - hope the person with the drill was ok to you.
Keep on runnin
I need new shoes
Ah yes, green shoes were definitely the choice in the Olympics.
Yesterday looked like it had a really promising opportunity for an hours training. It never happened. Perhaps the rest was valuable. I've not yet rekindled the enthusiasm/desperation/dedication/addiction for late night training. Trainers for me are Mizuno Wave Rider. They do what they say they should, and are a lot more economical than Asics or Nikes. I can't justify Asics Nimbus unless they are 50% discount. I've not actually tried the 2160/2170.
Lyrics, seem familiar, but no bells.
Training will happen today, I'm taking the MG down to the garage for some work and MOT. I'll have to run home, obviously.
I could kick myself. I so should so of got nyesterdays lyrics and i'm sure i should know todays but brain not functioning yet
As for shoes over the last few years progressing towards lightweights i mainly wear Saucony Kinvaras love them occasionally wear the fastwitch's (yes i'm a Saucony girl) still have a pair in a box i haven't worn yet which i bought a few years back
I still live and hope that Saucony will sponsor me
Just under 6 miles cycle home including hills - buggers
Run later dunno what yet
Tom: I think I had the very same Tiger cubs! Glorified pump/plimsol or whatever one calls the things you wear at school! I, too, had some Gola shoes when I was at school: can't remember how it happened but I was given a free pair before they were released as long as I did a review. After that I was a Reebok man...mainly because I worked for them selling shoes at races whilst I was a student and in my first couple of years of teaching: I was largely paid in free or substantially discounted kit. My connections finished with them when they wanted me to work full-time for them at £20 a week, which was less than I was getting as a teacher. I turned it down...and in the next couple of years Reebok took off. When I knew them they just had one shop in Bury and had no other outlets. Reebok's success can be entirely put down to me NOT working for them!
Christmas is coming: I've just baked the cake, anyway!
shoes - I love shoes Pammie: might as well copy and paste your post . a) kicking myself re. AC/DC yesterday - doh!!! and b) Saucony rocks. Mirage, Fastwitch and Kinvara for me.LMH: oh no, more dentist's torture?? You poor thing. These appointments really wear you out. Postie and Tom: good sessions, both of you.Tom: yes, preparing for Bremen marathon on October 7. Feeling far from ready though. I thought a 12 week P&D schedule would suffice as I used to peak to soon previously but I'm slightly panicky if I think that I have basically only 2 more training weeks and then it's taper time. HELP!!! what: 15 miles earlierwhy: MLRlast hard: yesterdaylast rest 25/8lyrics: yes
Asics Kayano's - expensive but the shoe I adopted (with orthotics) post running rehab and I daren't change - if it ain't broke etc. Wore a brand new out of the box pair for my easy run today but they are bought discounted or I have them for xmas and birthday presents (also usually last seasons model).
Dentist wasn't as traumatic as feared - everything is ok at the moment, he recommended root canal work - which the NHS won't fund - so instead I've been referred to a specialist dentist for an extraction. Specialist as the root is apparently 'unusual and complicated'. Just lucky I guess
chickadeee - you're going to be just fine. What's your target?
OH - I think you're excused
Dustin - hope you can make it fit.
postie - good running.
Alehouse - keep resisting!
Tom - do you have any races planned.
