Todays lyrics:This is the end Hold your breath and count to ten

Yesterdays lyrics: 'Bang, Bang' by BA Robertson. Kinda obscure but I thought ( I know) appropriate for 5th November.

What:4M Easy/Steady

Why: Recovery run.

LMH: Hope you get the tooth sorted soon.

Coffee time

Back later.

Have a good one

Morning, had a hectic day at work and then helping my sister move house, so no running yesterday, but looking forward to club night this evening...

No idea with the lyrics....

Morning sweep

Wabo - how lovely that you'll have them here next year. March will soon come round.

OH - I was home from my run by 1630hrs (just).

Tooth was settled last night thankfully though throat is still sore. Rain forecast for today so a run may not be quite so inviting anyway.

What:             probably something on the turbo
Why:              semi-sensibleness
Last hard:      21/10 (feels like so long ago)
Last rest:       4/11

Lyrics - no.

good news with #10 wabo, I have a little catching up to do to match that!
LmH - glad you got out yesterday and had a pain free night
what - club night , but will be taking it easy as hammy still a little sore but much better than yesterday
why - precaution, & racing once possibly twice this weekend (Hellrunner saturday, xc sunday)
last hard - walking yesterday
last rest - from running, yesterday

lyric - think I should but still umming ...knew yesterdays song but didnt get it from the lyric

Morning all,

I have the day off.....

Plan on a speed session later folowed by the gym.

Should have got yesterdays lyrics as I really like that song... no idea today though.

Take care

Enjoy the day off RFJ.

Lyrics: no idea! Yesterday's was a good choice!

Is any thread regular putting themselves forward for the RW/Asics 26.2 Paris marathon Challenge competition...you'd get my support, for one!

Managed to walk about 200 metres yesterday (without sticks)...and then had the worst night yet with a red hot shin. I'm sure I'm gradually getting there, but it won't be in time for a spring marathon!

And where's Pammie? Amongst others.

Don't rush things Alehouse, you'll get there. I shan't bother entering the competition as I'm sure they discount anyone with an injury history like mine, never mind the ongoing issues that I have. Not that vetting people as they do has brought them much success so far.

Enjoy the day off RFJ.

Dustin - don't overdo it if racing at the weekend is your priority.

What: Gym after work. 
Why: To fulfill weekly quota. I've got really into intervals on the treadmill. 3k at 10/12 km/h (400m/200m). I am disgusting by the end of it!
Last hard: Yesterday's Home Run was fun. We were given glowsticks, sparklers (used when stationery) and hot food at the end!
Last rest: Friday.

Lyrics: Yes! Fresh in my memory from Sunday.

I'm considering joining a friend for the Paris half marathon on 7th March. I've got Brighton on Feb 17th and am not sure whether two HMs so close together would be a good idea? We were also looking at Berlin but being 7th April that's too close to VLM for my liking, and I think I'd prefer Paris anyway. Any thoughts?

Wabo wow 10th London marathon to go, how fantastic!

06/11/2012 at 12:44
I filled in the application... Will see if I hear anything back.
06/11/2012 at 13:53

sweep: good luck! Tell us if you get shortlisted. We sure vote for you

wabo: exciting stuff about VLM #10

GGG: I would go for Paris. As you already pointed out 7th April is damn close to London. I wouldn't race a half 2 weeks out.

what: 10 miles
why: base
last hard: no hard for me, thanks
last rest: Friday
lyrics: oh yes! Loooooved the movie. Thought it was brilliant.

06/11/2012 at 14:02

afternoon all

lmh, totally lovely! I cant wait. Glad your tooth settled, now the throat needs to behave

alehouse if I wasnt likely to get my club place I would definitely have entered, 10th one, need to go sub 4.15, oh I could have had a field day!

sweep will vote for you too

dont know todays lyrics, dont think

what: club race tonight now I did this course 4 weeks ago and a few pounds heavier, lets see what we got!

why: league race at hog hill cycle track

last hard: sunday

last easy yesterday  was

have a good day all

06/11/2012 at 14:15

Thanks chickadee. So you think two weeks between Brighton and Paris HMs is enough time? I just checked the Hal Higdon training plan I'm intending to follow for VLM. Brighton (17th Feb) about fits in with an 11 mile run at easy pace I'm meant to do on the 16th... If I just take some effort out of the shorter runs immediately prior to this to make up for the harder pace I'll inevitably end up going for in a race? And for Paris (7th March) it has me doing 13 miles on 9th March, so I can just change that round a bit. Agree on your lyric related verdict! Good luck sweep.

GGG: 2 weeks between HMs should be ok but don't race them both flat out. If HH has you do 11 miles easy on Feb. 17 why not use the Brighton half for some marathon pace practice? MP is hard on your own but great in the company of others. It's nice to cruise past those runners that went out too hard and are dying towards the end . Then go full blast in Paris and get a PB

06/11/2012 at 14:50

What: Gym later, treadmill and weights and stuff

Why: I haven't been in forever

Last hard: last week, oops

Last rest: yesterday

Lyrics: YES, for the first time I've got them! Must say I was getting really sick of the song on the radio but it worked really well in the film. I actually want to see it again, such a good movie!!!

Semi de Paris yes yes yes GGG! Also got hopes set on Berlin and am nabbing GGG's Shakespeare HM place. Need to book these places ASAP!

06/11/2012 at 14:55

aha hh now I think I know the song today....

06/11/2012 at 15:04

no I know I know...

06/11/2012 at 15:04

Wabo, thought I might have been a little too obvious... Oops!

06/11/2012 at 15:20

probably not obvious but I did see the film

06/11/2012 at 15:35

Great advice, thanks chickadee. Off to Paris we go hansyhobs!!
