Last hard:  20/7
Last rest:   30/7

Men's tri this morning - Go the Brownlee's!

LMH: Yeah two starts today

What: 3.5M Off road with Geordie.

Why: I'm on holiday and believe it ot not...it's warm and sunny

They've closed off old High School biuldings and started demolishing it so can't run through there. I've been doing that route since August 1995 when we moved here !

Lyrics: Oh Yes.

Catch up time.

LMH: He's 16 months now and still as mad I take him on mostly off road runs or footpath runs.

07/08/2012 at 07:59

LMH you beat me by 2 mins!  Today is the move, and the road is definitely long, but whether it has many a winding turn I'm yet to find out!  I do know the lyrics though!

As for running, did a short 2 miler yesterday, walking for 30 sec running for 1 min.  Hip is feeling tight, but think it's coz I've been lifting and there's no time for exercises at the moment.

Just wanted to check in before we go, as won't have internet for a while when we get there.

All a bit real now!

Have a good day all, and see you on the other side...

hi guys, oh lmh I know these lyrics, sad face

my girls have gone back to Peru and I have a huge lump in my throat and theonly thing to do is train!

WHat: circuits and swim later

Moring emzap and wabo.

emzap: Hope move goes well.

Wabo: Hang in there re the girls.

07/08/2012 at 08:39

emzap: I knew your lyrics for today too.

07/08/2012 at 08:48

emzap - hope the move goes smoothly.

Wabo - awwww, I feel for you. Do you know when you're going to see them next? Any chance of them moving back?

birkmyre - hope you can find a new, equally enjoyable and convenient route.

Another iconic song 

What: 8 steadily paced miles yesterday evening from London EC3 to Lewisham (around the Isle of Dogs and through the foot-tunnel) – putting in a few "surges" (for me any way) along the way

Why: Miles in legs – endurance building

Last hard: Running up the steps in the Greenwich foot tunnel yesterday evening (foolishly trying to race the lift)

Last rest: Sunday 04/ 08

Come on the Brownleas Bros!

07/08/2012 at 14:51

ale: Wow, it looked a brilliant atmosphere.

07/08/2012 at 15:10
And to make you even more jealous am in the GB clubhouse! It's definitely a case of who you know not what you know!!

Hi folks,

sorry, no time to read back

Whey hey, Brownlee Bros . How awesome were they?? I must admit that I put work aside for a moment to watch it on live stream . Well, needs must.

alehouse: amazing! enjoy!!

wabo: how sad . I was a bit homesick too so I moved back. But moving from the UK to Germany wasn't really such a big deal. It took some convincing of Mr Chick though. He would have stayed happily where we were. But then, his parents are both dead and he was never really close to them. Whereas I love mine to bits, annoying as they are and I got so frustrated when there was always one of them in hospital.
Work on Mr. Jodie . If he loves is wife he will want to see her happy.

what: 15 mile MLR
why: miles miles miles
last hard: concentrating on my work today
last rest: yesterday
lyrics: yes

07/08/2012 at 16:51

Just how young are those Brownies? I saw them being interviewed by G Lineker and now he's on the Perv Register.
If that winning Brownie had run all the way to the line he could have got a half decent 10k time.
Awesome level of achievements by all the afleets, Vicky Pendleton was soooo annoyed after blowing her showdown with the Oz, but in all honesty the right person won. VP clearly crossed the red line in run 1, a reversal of the previous Oly games. In run 2 she was out manouvered on the top of the banking and she knew it.
Oak legs Hoy was simply stunning...
Discus Dave (can't remember him already) was so rough in his technique it was embarrassing. My mate Ralph was better than that at the age of 14 although not in the 60m plus bracket.
Pole Vault P(H)olly needs to mature a bit and get some self belief.

They said that Yorkshire would have come 10th in the medal table, just ahead of Australia until this evening. That might still be the case. Impressive.


Lyrics, that's a yes then.
Training? er, that's a no then. I've been putting consistent swim kilometers on holiday, and a Jamaican complimented me on my tan.
I wasn't up for the running, when it was over 30 degrees at 9am. I don't know how DD does it. (slowly?)
