RW:  good to see you again. Not jealous of your run at all. Much!

Lyrics: not sure

What: a walk, exercise bike, stretches etc
Why: 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.

What: probably short run this afternoon
Why:half day today
Last rest: ?yesterday (finished scheduled work at gone 7)

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.

27/11/2012 at 11:12

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

Morning all,

Club night tonight, hill session I believe, although gonna try not to get carried away, as still feeling Sundays race.

Essex has been a nightmare to drive round this morning, left mine at half six, been to pay for some materials and that's all I've achieved :-/

Back on a no idea streak with the lyrics!

Have a good day everyone.

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!

27/11/2012 at 11:34

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

27/11/2012 at 11:39
Lyrics - yes. I know this band is a particular favourite of yours Birkmyre...and rightly so.

Weatherwise we seem to have escaped the worst of it. Ironically although our area (South Holland - the clue is in the name) is very low lying it is extremely well drained having been reclaimed from the sea, so be don't get a huge amount of flooding.

Chick - ouch!! I hope there's no real damage, but I guess you be a bit sore and stiff for a few days.

I had a pretty decent session with the physio yesterday, who again confirmed that there's no real tissue damage to the hamstring though it is a bit inflammed and "ropey". He gave it a good massage and prescribed some useful exercises (all of which I've done in the past) and told me that I can run on it to the extent that I stress it slightly - a mild ache is OK, but no pain and to be aware of it being too stiff the following morning.

Started the exercises yesterday - glutes were a bit achey this morning but no tightness in the hammie. Did about half a mile of intermittent jog/walk without any discomfort whatsoever....looks like the way to go.

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!

27/11/2012 at 12:57

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

27/11/2012 at 13:38

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!

27/11/2012 at 14:23

27/11/2012 at 15:42
