Alright one and all,

What : Club night so who knows
Why : Because it is

Last Hard : Tuesday
Last Rest : Yesterday (off work sick, tried to stay in bed but the dogs kept bouncing about, so got up, got bored and decided to carry on decorating, (as a little aside isn't really annoying when you pick two tins of paint from the same shelf, use one and start to use the other only to find it was a different colour - hmmm maybe I should read the labels!))

what: not a lot - unless you count driving to Birkenhead this evening & battling with other shoppers to pick up some Xmas prezzies

why: scheduled rest day

last hard day: Tue
last rest day: Mon
last long day: Sun

Laura - have been monitoring the forecasts and know what's coming. We over on the west side of the country may actually get off quite lightly, but the weathermen are making a lot of it because the south-east in particular is going to get the worst of the Siberian blast apparently.

Morning one and all.

What: Club run probably 5.5 m as I have a XC race on Sunday, like to taper from a good distance out, followed by food night as it is the 1st Thursday of the month, some good cooks in our running club.

Why: Thursady always club night, options of 3.5m to 8.7m.

Last hard: Tuesday speed session

Last rest: Sunday

tut tut parky
off sick and doing the decorating....

Happy Birthday Snicks (only remember as its the same day as my mums,and you haven't dropped any hints or started any threads on the subject...)

As for me I'll try and get out,but in a foolish attempt to win 'brownie points' I said to Mrs D that I'd start decorating the hall (must be catching Parky!).
Later this evening she's out in town so I may well get the stationary bike in from the garage and do an hour in front of the telly.

Why: easy workout to keep things ticking over

What icy winds ? Sunny start here in Hants.

What: the great birthday run was abandoned as was awake from 330am to 5am drinking Lemsip and feeling insominac. Is this what happens when you get old? Intend to treat myself to a scive run later, got to try and fit in 6 miles at least
Why: It's my birthday (Ta Dustin! Happy B/day to mum Dustin, too)
Is everyone ill at the moment?
05/12/2002 at 10:01
Just checked the local weather forecast: "A strong gale warning (more than 20 metres per second) is in effect in most places today. Southeast winds, up to 25 metres per second" it says.

What: Nowt
Why: Poorly. So day off is sensible. Sahme, cos I love running in bad weather.

Last hard: Er, yesterday. Felt ill, went running ... had to walk home.
Last rest: Saturday
05/12/2002 at 10:03
BTW Happy birthday Snicks! Being poorly seems to know no national boundaries at the moment ...
05/12/2002 at 10:32
Happy Birthday Snicks, another year, another round of PBs to be collected...

Virtual brownie points to all decorators. I'm considering joining Snake hips' running club which has food nights, now why don't more clubs do this session?

Icy winds are definitely on the way, but today is gorgeous frosty sunny day here.

What: 6 miles easy.
Why: tried to do tempo run but couldn't get my hr up so decided it wasn't meant to be, and just enjoyed the sunshine.

Don't go slipping on any icy patches today folks, and get better soon if you're ill. Mother says, don't go running!
05/12/2002 at 10:32
Blimey theres a lot of sickness around at the mo.

Happy Birthday Snicks!

Dustin don't do it. Finishing the decorating is hanging over me like the sword of Damocles! Every night I get home and its on with the painting togs, and to make matters worse we're having the kitchen done at the mo as well. What fun!
05/12/2002 at 10:42
Laura L you would be more than welcome.

Happy birthday Snicks, did you know you share it with the Chimp!

Happy Birthday Snicks, sorry you're still down with Lurgy. I've been busy trying to assign the Grauniad article to you written under your pseudonym of "Emily Watson" yesterday. Can't do links so you'll have to go search.

Well done to decorators, foodies, runners of all abilities.

What: probably zilch
Why: knee showing know sign of recovering, I have my "hypochondriacs list" of possible options and my worst case scenario is torn meniscus :-(. suppose I'll have visit one form of therapist or another for proper diagnosis.

last rest: yesterday
last hard: sun

05/12/2002 at 11:25

And happy birthday Snicks!
05/12/2002 at 11:57

Sanding internal doors and taking garden rubbish to the tip.

Happy birthday Snicks

Last Rest: Monday

Last Hard: Wednesday

What: Studying for exam tomorrow.

Why: Bu88ered if I know, seemed like a good idea at the time.

This is harder than running. I've had my head stuck in a book every available minute for the last 2 weeks, and I'm absolutely sha88ed! Tuesday's exam went better than expected, so hopefully that will carry over till tomorrow. But I have had a sore head since after the exam on Tuesday, and my eyes were so sleepy I couldn't get my contact lenses in this morning. Roll on the weekend.
05/12/2002 at 12:38
What: 750m swim: 250 Fast 250 exercises (thanks to Wild Will) 250 Fast, and yes, it is working and I am really getting faster (just about 5min for 10 lengths, which, is a Considerable Improvement on similar lengths three months ago).

Why, because Thursday is a swimming day, and I can still swim even if I cannot walk. Yippee!

Happy birthday Snicks, and no, you don't spend more time ill when you're older, at least I don't. Time I was most ill was when I had small children in the house. Get well to everyone who is feeling under the weather. Take care of yourselves.
