Yesterday's lyrics were Walking On Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves.

Why:             schedule/making the most of the weather
Last hard:      21/4
Last rest:       27/4

Lyrics - no.

LMH - good to see the return of the mojo!
Blisters - surely you know by now, interior decorating is a winter job...

morning guys and such a beautiful one . I wish I wasn't working today ...

Really loving spring at the moment. I reckon a few runners at MK mara yesterday had a rough old time in the heat though.

what: 10 miles -- yep ten (longest run since mara )
why: I wanted to
last hard: Saturday
last rest: Thursday
lyrics: I'm thinking of a movie tune but maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree

07/05/2013 at 08:36

Morning all. Nope on the lyrics.

What: rest!

Why: two races over the weekend (parkrun on Saturday, 18.59 in Oldham and Coiners fell race in Mytholmroyd - 7.5m/400m ascent) means I'm knackered. Also, one of my trail shoes ripped clear in half on the final descent, so I need some new ones.

Last hard: yesterday, definitely.

07/05/2013 at 09:05

Morning again

7D: A well done on your two races.

chick: Double figures so good for you.

07/05/2013 at 09:52

What: catch up on yesterday's closure at work
Why: the downside of bank holidays
last hard: 8 days ago
last rest Saturday

Chickadee - "I wanted to" - says it all!

7D - a well earned rest

BM back to habitual ways again?

07/05/2013 at 11:52

OH: Nope just fancied a 5 today, nice sunny morning still

LMH: Cracking song for yesterday in my opinion

07/05/2013 at 14:00

sun just peeping through here now the morning haar is lifting

cute picture Wabo

Lyrics: what Wabo said.

Well done 7D!

What: a walk later
Why: still not up to running. Worked today but felt grim! Feel dizzy and head aches, but considerably better than Saturday.  Don't even feel like going to the Alehouse.

Wabo: that photo sure looks like trouble!

Sounds like a good weekends work 7d!

Wabo - she's growing up so fast!

Sorry to hear that you're still feeling rough Alehouse.

Beautiful here this afternoon so after my 2.6k swim set this morning I took Grace out for 5.5 miles with a few stops whilst she paddled in the lake and river to cool off on the way.

07/05/2013 at 16:41

Lyrics: Nope
What: Gentle stroll
Why: Enforced rest
Last Hard: Facing reality
Last Rest: Yesterday

Had another NHS hospital day last Friday, 9 hours of joy and battery of tests. Pericarditis flared again and no running/exercise for at least another week. No Embra for me unless I walk. Looks like slowish half mara will be max going forward. Tish happens so reframe and get on with it. Back tomorrow with smiley face and will try and reduce my AWOL's

07/05/2013 at 17:08

Afternoon all,

Oh bu&&er, Straycelt. Phooey. Not what we wanted to hear.  Sorry, but you've clearly figured it out - the reframe and get on with it bit. Hard to see the positives, but does enable one to feel slightly smug reading others' woes as they regret their failed time ambitions for this marathon or that.  Those who have to reframe know what running is about, which others may not, whatever time they come home in.

Wabo - oooh she's lovely!

Alehouse - hope head clears and the dizzy stops soon.  Hang in there.

7D - sounds a stiff fell run.  Well done on the double.

Yes, glorious spring mornings that beg one to go outside and enjoy them.  I got out early too, but to walk over to friends house to sit with her poorly Mr. while she went out for a bird-watch.  Got there to find he'd been taken in to hozzie.  Sugar.  They've had more than their share of troubles.

(saw a heron and a green woodpecker on the way over)

Packing now for long training weekend with Tinebeest.  Not as prepared as would like to be, but life interfered, as it is well known to do.  1kg in weight loss, only two stairs run, one longer run, and not very long at that.  Three days on the trot should do good things.

07/05/2013 at 19:44

Sorry to hear SC, hope you get soon

7D - you are as mad as me with races, well done

5.25m for me today

Take care



07/05/2013 at 20:15

Really sorry to hear that SC - are you still ok with the TKD?

Didn't know you had any weight to lose Stickless! Hope you enjoy your weekend with Tine.

Forecast for the rest of the week is now good - rain forecast to appear tomorrow morning and strong winds not far behind it - not what I need when playing catch up on the bike.

07/05/2013 at 20:18


What 8 commute

Carp day at work, tired now so rest day tomorrow.

07/05/2013 at 20:35

Cute pic wabo.

07/05/2013 at 20:42

Wabo lovely pic

Alehouse Hope you're feeling better soon

Straycelt oh no  hope you get  another chance  soon

What:4.45 miles
Why: Because
Last Hard: a little today
Lyrics No
