Lyrics - Saw it written and I saw it say

What's wrong with your foot Literatin?

What:                an easy run
Why:                  tapering
Last hard:          13/9
Last rest:           27/9

01/10/2013 at 07:41

Nice run Blisters, good pace too for the distance. For me to get an average HR of 132 I think I'd be brisk walking. As I posted last week, will need to get myself a cheap HRM just to see what readings I get these days.
What - club night
Why - Its what Tuesdays are there for
last rest - Friday
last hard - Sunday

Applied on behalf of my club for VLM places, so a second bite beckons. We got 3 places last year, hopefully the same this.

Lyric - doubtful

Morning, sorry to hear AH, hope they catch the b'stards but I dont hold up much hope on past experience (3 burglaries in as many years)

What - 12 miles run in the dark

Why - Couldn't sleep, so gave up fighting the duvet in the early hours. Hopefully will avoid nodding off at my desk this afternoon! Really enjoyed it though, certainly puts a different perspective on running. 
last rest - Saturday
last hard - Friday

Oh, and thats a no on the lyrics.

What: maybe swim this evening (pool)
Why: slow progress down the stairs this morning

Last Hard: LSR yesterday

Last rest: Sunday

Lyrics: no

Blowing a gale through the night

Sorry to hear about the burglary, alehouse    it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth if you can't feel safe in your own home anymore

Blisters: brilliant running

I managed 30 mins without stopping yesterday. Sciatica all the way down the left leg but I can live with that. It was nothing compared to the pain that hit me about 2 weeks ago when all this rubbish kicked off ...

what: another 30 mins tonight
why: better than nothing
last hard: driving is hard at the moment - wish I drove an automatic
last rest: 27/9
lyrics: I think so but not 100% sure

01/10/2013 at 11:26

chickadee, well I hope the sciatica doesn't linger for you

Adrian hi and like the avatar!

what: race at hog hill, 4 lovely times up the hill!

why: new season begins tonight..

alehouse so sorry to hear about your mum and the break in, that's horrible

OH you are way more on track for Snowdonia than I am! long runs have been 12, 13, 16 and 15! I am banking on my marathon head I think... Oh goodness....

01/10/2013 at 14:22


What: rest again I think
Why: too much work to finish before bank holiday
Last hard: resting
Last rest: yesterday
Lyrics: familiar, but no

Chick good to see you running.  Do you have exercises to do for your back?
Wabo surprised today wasn't the last hard, 4 times up a hill!  when is Snowdonia?
Dustin good luck in the ballot.

Have a good one all.

Not excited today as I don't know the lyrics.

LMH - bruised/swollen ankle, hurts to walk on. It happened while I was unconscious after passing out in a race on Sunday. 

Hi Chickadeee! 

01/10/2013 at 15:44

1 mile warm up, weights session, 5 mile with a small bit of speed.

Turbo hour later!!

01/10/2013 at 16:32


Yesterday's lyrics were "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves" Cher. No idea of today's.

What: will be 40 mins or so later
Why: its what we do! Tired though...have spent from 7.30 labouring again: need to get certain things finished before the plasterers come on Friday, and I'm working the next two days.

01/10/2013 at 16:39

That doesn't good Literatin - do you know why you lost consciousness?

You have a BH coming up emzap?

Racing as much as ever Wabo - you'll have earned all that cake.

What's the next race Paddy?

No need to cross train Alehouse!

01/10/2013 at 16:55


 What 7 with strides

Why I bow to P&D

Lyrics no

As a Radio 2 DJ used to claim "night time is the right time" Adrian. I always prefer toru. early even when I'm not working.

Ale- really sorry to hear about your Mum's break in. Must be really unsettling.

01/10/2013 at 18:29

yes LMH. Chicka and I get German Reunification day on Thurs.  Fits in nicely with going down for the marathon so get a nice long weekend.

01/10/2013 at 18:32

LMH - no idea! I'm annoyed about my missed PB though. Grr. Am having some tests this week.

01/10/2013 at 20:06

Enjoy emzap.

Hope you get some answers and it's nothing serious literatin.

01/10/2013 at 20:19

Welcome Literatin and hope ankle / consciousness issues are sorted

What - Intervals (2 x400m / 4 x 800m / 2 x 400m)
Why - Speed
Last Hard - Above at lunchLast Rest - Last Weds

Lyrics No

Take care

01/10/2013 at 21:36


What: turned out to be 36 mins
Why: I struggled. Legs ached from about 15 mins. May be the cross-training.
Last hard: that was
Last rest: yesterday...at least from running.

Going to work tomorrow and Thurs for a rest!

Birks: I seem to be rather short of Commonwealth tickets, hockey apart. 5 of us applied for all the athletics sessions...and got none between us. Can you sort it please?!

01/10/2013 at 22:23

LMH - Either  a XC race on 13th Oct or a road race end Oct/ early Nov.

Ale - remember your March Target

Lyrics, ah, yesterday's was relatively easy and I was humming it, even though I got the wrong artist. Today, normal service is resumed.
Dustin, if you start your HR calcs with the most basic approach of 220-age, giving me a theoretical max of 168. For 85% or working heart rate for a marathon, that gives me 143. Maybe add a couple because the I've been able to top that theoretical MHR.

It seems like general training today is pretty much a drag it out day (except for RFJ). It certainly was for me. Just the 5 miles to loosen up a bit.
