We don't need no

This should be easy. For a change.

What? I dunno, I suppose I'll plan something.

Yesterday's lyrics were Good Day by Owl City - it was like summer had finally arrived here, in the afternoon I was too hot walking Grace in t-shirt and shorts!

Shame that work/traffic stopped play Blisters.

Thought it might be your dodgy internet birkmyre.

Hope the new job continues to please RFJ.

What:              MLR
Why:               dentist on Thursday so don't know what I'l be able to do after that
Last hard:        haven't done hard for a while
Last rest:         29/8

Lyrics - yes.


04/09/2012 at 07:14

Morning all

LMH good luck with the dentist
RFJ glad the 1st day went ok
Pammie can't find a squash club here (or any courts at all).  They sell raquets in the sports shops though which is odd...
7D that's a real shame.

What: stretching and core
Why: hip is hurting from yesterday's lacrosse.  Only 4 people there and so I had to join in all the session, coaching from within!
Last hard: trying to get my team to understand drills in English...

Have a good one all.

Morning - bright but breezy day due to get up to F9 this afternoon.

What: intention is long run but see above.
Why: Loch Ness marathon getting closer
Last hard: Saturday
Last rest: watched "Downfall" German film of Hitler's last days in bunker last night - cheery stuff

LMH: hope dentist is not too traumatic

Lyrics: ?setting the bar a bit lower today
04/09/2012 at 08:35

Morning from a damp and dismal north-west: not what was promised, although it is supposed to improve later, whenever later is.

Emzap: a great chance to try out your German in the sports shop and see if they know of any squash courts!

The last few days, indeed the last week, has seen progress in putting bricks into the wall of recovery: today it feels as if the mortar is loose, at the very least. Very painful and can't work out why as I did very little yesterday: the physio only had me do my normal sort of stretches for the camera. Anyway, ice on, and pain may subside in the next couple of hours.

7D:  I don't know whether you caught my reference to this blog: terryrunningonempty.blogspot.co.uk
but yesterday he wrote about a course: "It's far from being pan flat but no where near as challenging as the Boggart Chase will be in two week's time."
Re the Sutton race, RobT and Chingo who post on other threads are members of the promoting club, so it may be worth dropping them a line re transport.

morning all, lyrics yes

blisters will you remember those lyrics for next year?? I know I wouldnt!

lmh, hopefully dentist goes well

alehouse its all frustrating at times eh? My flipping right calf played up on a run last night, as soon as I started doing some fartlek, changing the pace up and down, it started to tighten.  In fact all three times thats when it has happened, anyone know why? I ran last thursday nearly 4 miles at a steady pace and no problems at all. 

I seemto have so many aches and pains these days, did a set of tai chi in my front room this morning think I need to do this everyday.

what: buy new fridge freezer,ouch

why: mine is crocked!

last hard: last night

last easy: sat

have a good day all

Good morning

I thought yesterdays lyrics were Thorn in My Side by Eurythmics, but there you go. In contrast todays lyrics are eminently rememberable.

Alehouse - do you do any self massage at all. I've had similar problems in the recent past (calves rather than achilles) in which the reaction of the injury to any stimulous is totally unpredictable.

Club time trial tonight. Not sure how this will come out after yesterdays unplanned effort. At least I'll get a more generous handicap after last time's effort (4.4M at 8:13 pace!).

Enjoy the day
04/09/2012 at 10:07

LmH - good luck at the dentist..
RFJ - good luck with the new job (and the club admin...)
7D - bummer re race cancellation
Wabo - happy, erm, shopping?
Aleh - contiunued healing vibes

What - club session, speedy reps I hope...
Why - its tuesday!

lyric - yep , and I was right with yesterdays - they weren't the ones LmH said!!

04/09/2012 at 10:38

7d - there are other races if you dont want to waste the flights. I can recon for you if you want! I know there's a half marathon in Sligo on the same weekend. If youre flying to Dublin the onward journey isnt much further (but in a different direction) and you should get accomodation.

7D - Its actually the Dublin Half Marathon too that same weekend. Although officially closed you might get an entry - i can have an ask for you if you want.

04/09/2012 at 10:38

2k swim d&d.

Maybe a cycle later.

The man says that its ITB related. He done his stuff and hopefully things are on the up. No big jump back to running just yet.

OH wexford

Great dip in the Sea yesterday with the kids.

04/09/2012 at 11:59

Thanks for the good wishes guys but it's Tuesday today - dentist isn't until Thursday!

Paddy - glad to hear that progress is being made.

OH - best get out early from the sounds of that forecast!

Wabo - I would guess that you run more on your forefoot for the faster efforts and thereby put extra strain on the calf.

That must be very frustrating Alehouse.

04/09/2012 at 13:16


Wabo:  I would agree with LMH re calf. LOTS of stretching and LOTS of walking backwards! Don't worry about the people at work seeing you walk round backwards all day: they'll get used to it!

LMH: everything settled back down after a couple of hours and walked to the bank and back with no trouble, and then walked a similar distance round a well-known supermarket. No issues.

I'm in a major mood with one of the country's financial institutions: just opened the post to say that they are not prepared to deal with me as they don't feel that the Power of Attorney document is sufficient and require 3 forms of identification for both myself and my brother. And all I did was ask them if there was an account in my mother's name! I am actually taking their response very seriously: it was a quite upsetting, aggressive, letter (my neighbour's view who is a solicitor, as well as mine), sent at a time when people are particularly sensitive, upset by the fact that their loved ones are struggling to cope etc. I am quite sure that their response was not in the spirit of the law even if it was in the letter of the law (and neighbour doesn't think that it is in the letter of the law either.) Rant over!


04/09/2012 at 13:21

LMH - Didn't have that option - just finishing surgery now.

Pictures of the ferry this morning look fairly lively and wind has picked up since then.
Hamnavoe 4 Sep 2012
Later ferries have been cancelled!

Maybe head into the wind and see how far I get.

Paddy - Nice part of the world

Ale - good you managing to keep your chin up

04/09/2012 at 13:45

thanks guys,really happy to have a reason, it does make sense now.  It isnt hurting too much today.  Will stretch and see how it goes

04/09/2012 at 14:28

OH: sounds windy! Couldn't open the link but watched forecast yesterday and it seemed like Scotland got a fair hit of strong winds. And the islands are more exposed anyway...

7d: bummer about the race cancellation and wasted money on flights. Ryanair sucks

emzap: amazing that there is Lacrosse in Germany! I thought it was unheard of over here. Guess I learned something new then!

LMH: hope dentist goes as well as these things can go. Ouch ...

alehouse: ooooh, I can so relate to your feelings of anger. No wonder some people wnat to blow up financial institutions! I'd give them a hand any day! Grrrrrr

As for yesterday's lyrics: I thought it was the Euro 2012 anthem Endless Summer by Oceana.... completely wrong there!

what: 3 mile recovery and 30k on the bike
why: becuse of yesterday
last hard: yesterday
last rest: 25 August
lyrics: yes!

Ale, can I Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr along with you?

Wabo, I wish to contradict the other contributors. You're merely getting older. Pack it in. Take up chess.

Some of the schools are back already, but my kids go back tomorrow. The general area has that aura of the quiet before the storm. I was indeed going to use Papa was a rolling stone today, but I mis-remembered the lyrics to the song.

Just back in from a pleasant 16 miles run at an 8:40 pace. The last couple were a bit tiredy, maybe I should have taken some fluids. I checked my weight before and after 11-13 down to 11-7. Fluid replacement programme ongoing.
