Lyrics - I carry madness

What:              MLR
Why:               marathon training

Last rest:        28/12

Second in! I must be up early.

What: work then hopefully 6 miles and swim
Why: snapping out of laziness!

Lyrics: I think so..

What's MLR LMH??
06/02/2014 at 07:56


MLR=medium long run. A lot of people feel that it is not just the long run that is the key to a good marathon, but the medium one of around 3/4 of the long one: a long run of 20 miles at the weekend and a mid-week one of 15, for example.

What: 30 mins or so this evening.
Why: work gets in the way during the day!

Lyrics: not today.

last hard: Monday 

last rest Sunday

lyrics: no

Yesterdays lyrics: 'Only you' by Alison Moyet. I know other artists/bands have songs with the title 'Only you'.

I have run to bend 4 up Alpe d' huez and people looked mighty upset when I ran passed them.

Excellent, Gobi   bet they all saw the funny side of being overtaken by a runner!!

06/02/2014 at 17:10

I must admit, when I'm riding uphill I often think that I'd rather be running it!

Hope you're soon feeling better Wabo.

Thought I'd run a bit harder tonight so headed out and did 7 miles in 48:48.  Quite enjoyed it, worked very hard at times.

Lyrics, probably not.

What 9 I think

Why forgot my garmin

Lyrics no

7:0? Is a lie in

Ended up hurrying out the door this evening and forgot to swasp swatches but someone in my group proclaimed 9 miles in 1:04 which included a few bits of doubling back and hanging around for the back markers to catch up. I'm enjoying the change from my normal solitary runs so will put the form in this week and become a club runner.

06/02/2014 at 22:31
What: 3mile run. 1.5km swim

Why: post 4 day break

Still feel under the weather.. Tired out easily and ache.

Gobi- usually I'm fine with early mornings. I think a week if sleep dep has caught up with me!

Lol to everyone thinking 6 mile swim!! I wish!!

Hopefully early morning run tomorrow. Won't get a a chance otherwise! Busy busy
