Morning you lot
Todays lyrics: If there's one great day, if there's one great height
This song has been in my head recently.
What:3,5M Easy/Steady with Geordie (our black labrador)
Why: He wakened me up and seemed full of energy.
Dry, cold no wind.
Right really need to catch up.
Yesterday's lyrics were Dancing in the Moonlight by Thin Lizzy.
More rain for us overnight - will be interesting to see how far I can get walking Grace this morning.
Sounds like a lovely run RW.
What: threshold turboWhy: need to work on bike fitness or I'll lose the little I have leftLast hard: 17/11Last rest: 23/11
Lyrics - yes.
hello again, what - clubnight, interval session 3x1k, 6x300s I think (on grass) - spikes again (or wellies)why - its what Tuesdays were made forlast rest - 11 dayslast hard - fizzios elbow in my hamstrings/quds/itbs last nightlyric - not sure
RW: good to see you again. Not jealous of your run at all. Much!Lyrics: not sure
What: a walk, exercise bike, stretches etcWhy: trying to get in the habit, and trying to gradually increase activitiy.
Unusually we haven't been affected much by the rain...the river has yet to break its banks which it does fairly regularly. However can't walk to the river without going a mile round as the access road is flooded.
Weather just the usual here (near gale force winds)
What: probably short run this afternoonWhy:half day todayLast rest: ?yesterday (finished scheduled work at gone 7)
RW sounds good
No rain here, 27C
What: 7.5 miles at MP, hopefully a cycle tonightWhy: Marathons & Triathlons are coming thick and fastLast Hard: SaturdayLast Rest: Thursday
Morning from soggy WalesLyrics..no, but should have.What: Treadmill session distance unknownWhy: Aching in new places after yesterday's core seshLast Hard: That'll be yesterday thenLast Rest: Last FridayConundrum: Training target for VLM: Can I get a GFA going for a GWR in silly outfit?
Yesterday was spent in London, wishing I wasn't there. A 3 hour plus drive home, and after sorting out the world decided that a late night run was a good idea. In the rain. The localised flood had been sorted (blocked drain), so that was good. The rest of the world was awash though.Driving in this morning the river Avon is at a peak l've I've not seen for 5-10 years. That's just above Tewkesbury-on-Sea.
I think I'll swim tonight.
Blisters: I guess swimming is the only option in lots of the affected areas at the moment Straycelt: what's GWR?I fell flat on my face this morning. Ouch. Broke Garmin display in the process. Skin off both hands. Left knee hurts badly. Destroyed pair of running tights. Not a good day . Still finished my 10 miles though. I couldn't bear a curtailed workout on top of all the other rubbish.Just hope the knee is just bruised and not damaged
Ouch Chickadee. GWS (get well soon!)
What.. It's club night... hope to be there... but a bit knacked today.
Lyrics... again, no. Presume it is either ancient... or something modern... from this century!
Hi Chicadeee: GWR = Guinness World Record. Needed a 3.39 last year and ended in 3.42...wasn't there on the day despite being in reasonable nick and all indicators were there for a sub 3.30; so this year looking to train for 3.15 so any shortfall will be covered off
What: Nothing.Why: It's still too dark in the morning to seriously consider running before work! Going out for burgers later.Last hard: Sunday's 10 miles.Last rest: Yesterday. Lyrics nope.I feel for you chickadee, sounds like a nasty fall! I've suffered the humiliation of running home down a busy road with holes in my lycra and bleeding knees... What did you fall on? I tripped on nothing! Can garmin display be replaced?Stay safe all those in flooded areas!
Thanks guys!GWR - d'oh ... I should've known GGG: road works barrier. It has weights to keep it in place when windy (rectangular thingies that are stacked). One of them must have gotten a push or something. At least it was in my way when I didn't expect it to be . Teaches me to watch out better next time around . I e-mailed Garmin support. I think I remember that they have a replacement service for devices that are out of warranty. You pay something like 1/3 or so of the original cost. Funny thing is, it still works! Only you can't see anything on the screen. I downloaded my run earlier and it stopped on impact
I reckon I may get flooded in at work! water is almost level with the road about qtr mile away
ouch chickadee hope you are ok, bummer about the garmin
alehouse nice to see you getting on and increasing
what: swim xtrain and weights d&d, run later
why: had some days off!
last hard: swimming this morning
last easy: monday
have agood day all
Wabo: I'd be leaving the building now!
Chick: there's road works everywhere nowadays! Hope you are not too sore in the morning.
Tom: sounds like good news!
Chick having been there i feel your pain. Hopefully not too badly damaged but if things don't feel right get it checked out
Just found this...
4 mins 55 secs... that'd be me, looking better than I felt as I finished on Sunday
