Morning! Not tired again!

Lyrics: Like a fool I went and stayed too long,
Now I'm wondering if your love's still strong,
Oo baby, here I am ....
This was playing before President Obama came on stage to make his acceptance speech!

Yesterday's lyrics were (I wanna be) Elected, by Alice Cooper. Heard it quite a few times in the run up to the US election.

What: prostate tests, at last.
Why: got to be done

Will also try to get a couple of hundred metres walk in prior to seeing consultant tomorrow. Won't be gazelle like! Actually drove a couple of miles yesterday, which is progress.

Back later!

good luck with the tests Ale
didnt know yesterdays words, not sure I know today's either...
what - either 2 or 3 easy or nothing
why - hamstring feels less tight and debating whether to leave it one more day and do a few miles tomorrow. Thats the more likely option, so if that is indeed the case, I will send back LmH's sensible head now....

have a good day!

Morning all,

No idea again

Hope all goes well today AH

Not sure if running tonight or not, been invited for a "social" run with the fast lads at my new running club, which I have a feeling I won't find very sociable! plus legs still ache from Tuesday's intervals, so will see how I feel after work...
08/11/2012 at 12:33

last easy: yesterday

have a good day all

08/11/2012 at 15:05
Enjoy Spurs, Wabo! And glad you like the lyrics: I bet everyone knows the next part of that 3rd line!

Was at hospital for 4 and a half hours. That wasn't fun and nor were the tests. No results for 2-3 weeks. Will just have to put it out of my mind until I hear anything.
08/11/2012 at 15:49

Yey I went for a run today:

What: 3 miles

Why: normal lunch time with work girls

Had a new girl running with us who is a bit of a newbie so there was a lot of stopping and starting going on but we all have to start some where so I didn't really mind. Felt like I could have really gone for it though, after my work run last week I felt so much better this time, must have been all that recovery time from GSR haha

08/11/2012 at 15:52

poor ale . I remember the waiting game with Mr. Chick. Not nice.

08/11/2012 at 16:47

yes poor ale, sounds really not nice

08/11/2012 at 17:16

Dustin - we can share it.

chickadeee - so far but that may have something to do with how rough my legs still feel!

Tom - hope you feel ok to get back to it tomorrow.

Alehouse - sounds like the best approach.

hansy - it's nice to give a little back to newcomers isn't it?

GGG - do you have a home run from your new location?

2.1k swum - shocking how bad not swimming consistently for a few weeks has left me. Lots of work to be done.


08/11/2012 at 17:39

Alehouse - good luck with the results. It is awful having to wait so long - hope the time passes quickly.

Tom - sounds like you are being sensible - think we have to look after ourselves a bit more these days. 

chickadee - when is your marathon?

What: Walk to and from playgroup - looking after youngest gdaughter.

AH: at least the tests are done now, been there myself and know how hard it is to wait. Keep busy

Wabo : spurs? The only team in London play in Blue

LMH: it's amazing how quickly swim fitness can disappear

What: cycled for 90 mins before dawn, ran 7 miles at lunchtime
Why: I'm trying to remain a runner who does Tri
Last Hard: last nights 5 x 1 mile intervals
Last rest : 1/11
08/11/2012 at 19:45

Dubai Dave - I love how you cycle before dawn - guess the only things out there are trucks! So I guess you have some great lights on your bike/head? 

5 x 1 mile - I  find running 1 effort mile hard!

08/11/2012 at 20:39

Ale - not good on the time to wait and the time to wait for results as well.

What - 6 x 3 mins with 90 sec recoveries, .49m, .51m, .50m, .51m, .50m, .50m, very content with the distances... total of 7m
Why - Intervals and the plan says so
Last Hard - Tonight
Last Rest - Monday

Take care (and lyrics no as usual)
