What: work, but resting legs as much as possWhy: in the absence of other advice as yet, that seems the best thing to doLyrics: managing to avoid this as yet..."Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear And he shows 'em, pearly white"
Rnjoy your day. Still raining here Don't think its stopped since Sunday evening.
Good news about the achilles Alehouse. Hope the scan shows what's going on elsewhere.
Not a holiday you're looking forward to then Blisters?
What: easy swimWhy: get everything movingLast hard: the ground on SundayLast rest: 24/9
Lyrics - guessed from context.
Morning, been AWOL for a few weeks, manic over here. Will pop in later to read back, been mainly resting (due to a week of non-stop visitors so not really resting)! Found out I got that job so am very happy!
What: restWhy: had 2 consecutive days and hip starting to grumbleLast hard: a pyramid yesterday!Last rest: all last weekLyrics: yes
Have a good one alll
Well done on the job front, Emzap!
Ended up doing a spinning class duringmy lunch yesterday after saying I was resting! I just couldn't bring myself to rest! Bad I know however I left my kit at home today so will be completely resting! Thinking of doing a 5k or so run tomorrow just to keep the legs moving then another on Friday. Swimming class on Thursday evening too. Does that sound to much? What: rest Why: TaperLast hard: 16/09Last rest: Today
Thinking of ringing up the organisers today to see if I can be put into a different start. Have an awful feeling that I may be held up by other runners as just after the start of the race it can be a bit tight! Fear i've been put in to the start i'm in due to not having done a half mara in the last 2 years. Unfair after all the training i've done!
Morning all, AleH - sort of good news with the injury ..Emz - congrats on the job frontNaughty OPR if you should be resting Re the taper - I get restless, I'm of the opinion something short, slow and easy is better mentally... what - 4 easy lunchtimewhy - switching speed session to tomorrow: will be coaching small people again tonight, and tbh legs sore after a going over by the QoP last night. She said my quads hadn't been that tight in a long while.lyric - yup
OPR In all the races I been at, start position is normally determined by your own assessment . Last year at Loch Ness 10 K, I accidentally entered my time for a 5k and was allocated to the first pen! I was allowed to voluntarily reallocate myself to a slower pen (along with 100 others who made a similar mistake). My estimated time at 25 minutes would have been faster than the world record for a 10k
What does a spinning class involve? (I just have images of an old fashioned spinning wheel!!!)
20 miles d&d on the bike that goes nowhere
Wait................... 2 miles d&d in 20 minutes .... Hoop Hoop, Oh Yeah, Oh Yeah ..... Love to the World
lyrics, oh yes!
alehouse, nice one
emzap, good news!
oh no lmh, what happened? Sorry I was away all weekend, hope you are ok
talking about mao tse tung, I do tai chi everyday now and its just sooooo g ood!
what: tai chi d&d, easy run later
last hard: sat bike, nearly 30 miles
last easy: yesterday
have a good day all
Lyrics, yup. I think that I've got 3 versions of this song in my collection. Very popular in its day.Thread sage, wise owl.OH, I had to laugh at the self declaration of being a world record holder!
What, I should be writing up my report, for then I can get on with the serious stuff.Swimming kit is in the car, trainers are at home. I would like to use both.
LMH sorry to hear about the fall. You've been struggling with injuries a bit recently haven't you?
Ale I read one post and the achillies is good, the next it's not so good again. This must be sooo frustrating. I hope they can sort something out, operation or not.
Postie Am I right in thinking you're running your mara dressed as a womble? Or have I got completely the wrong end of that stick?!
What 8 commuteWhy because I canlyrics no
Emzap it was Blisters joke. Congratulations on the job front.
Going to reign it in a bit this week as my left ankle seems a bit tender. Don't know what caused it but suspect it might be adapting to new shoes. I don't think it's serious though but it's better to play safe with the long game in mind.
Great news Paddy.
Well done on the job emzap - it's been illness rather than injury with me so far this year.
Wabo - I fell off my mtb
OH - must better thank you. No swelling in the ankle this morning so just a little round the knee and some impressive bruises. I can walk without a limp. Had intended to be very sensible and just go for a swim today but was a little stressed by work so was semi-sensible instead and did an hour on the turbo to clear my head rather than running. Spinning is a gym class on a staitionary bike.
OPR - don't leave your best race on the road this week! The taper is nearly as important as the training if you want to do your best, getting it right is difficult. I try to do just enough so as to not go mad climbing the walls.
Blister - hope that you got/get to use both.
Tom - Works not too bad but its physical on feet all night and lifting and carrying and fixing shelves and stuff but i've slept well past 2 nights
I must pay a visit to the MG thread to see what Ale said i could read between the lines but will pop over there and have a read
Postie take care
Paddy looking good but be careful
What 3.48 miles Why: keeping it shortLast Hard: agesLyrics Yes
works sports day
100m 15.4 secs PB200m 35.00 (unplanned a swe had run out of runners.... no warm up no prep) still a PB1500m 5:21 very happy 6 secs off a PB4 x 100m relay, and we got teh baton round with no practice.... EASY.....
3 large glasses of wine and a pint of cider, now having difficulty in functioning.....
RFJ: That's a result all round then.
LMH, I did indeed manage to get an hour's run done (7.7 miles) and follow it up with a mile swim (44 mins).
A few tender ankles about this week, ice and ibuprofen are on order. As is the ice and slice for RFJ.
