Few more miles either tonight or lunchtime, depends if I can get out
why - training
last rest - 25/12

LmH - staying overnight as youngest also running. Got a Premier Inn for about 30pounds so takes the rush out of Saturday morning (and I get an 'all you can eat' breakfast!)

Have a lovely day

Argh motivation needed! No run this week so far at all!
Long commute to work in the morning + late finishes. I woke up at
6am planning to go for a run and the weather meant it was just not happening!

Maybe swim or run tonight if I can!
05/02/2014 at 13:23
Another day of easy lyrics: so YES I KNOW THEM :`)

What: 11 miles d&d (also dry and home before 0645)
intervals PM, expect to get wet and wind swept
Last hard: yesterday
Last rest: Monday 30th December (no streak as I do not run or ride everyday)

Come on DIBS get in the game !!!!!

Afternoon all,

Well I can drop the fair-weather moniker now...

  • What: 8ish
  • Why:  rage against the dying of the light
  • Last Hard:  N/A
  • Last Rest:  Monday

I'd forgotten how much fun tube strikes were.

Have a good one!

What leisurely 16+
Lyrics yes

Proper day off work so didn't get out the door until after 10 this morning. No real rain to speak of but it was rather blowy which made some bits quite hard work. Just glad that there were no time pressures.

Off to play taxi's now so may be back later.

05/02/2014 at 15:57

nice work postie,AF,Gobi
yeah c'mon Dibs , stop slacking!
well 6 at lunchtime along the river to Vauxhall, lots of rain=no tourists, a joy to have Embankment to myself!
Legs a bit achey but nice to get it done.

05/02/2014 at 17:42


What: 2.23k on the roads
Why: wanted an easy day, and couldn't face more mud off-road. Active rest. Had a discussion re active rest with QofP yesterday (had to pay her!): she is very much in favour of it, particularly if it precedes stretching. Guess what I must do.

And well done on the long-midweek runs!

Lyrics - yes. That's a streak of 2.
Congratulations to the early birds, and in fact to anyone who has battled through it out there. I've just visited the Llandarcy Institute of Sport, to see what they have to offer a visitor (indoors). The answer was a packed gym with more people arriving (no thanks), and an absence of swimming pool. It looks like it's the trainers and wind jacket again.

05/02/2014 at 19:19

What: 1k pool swim

why: on call but wanted to do something active

last hard: Monday 

last rest: Sunday 

lyrics - no

dibs  - yes you can 

05/02/2014 at 19:33


What: managed another 3 miles last night, plus a few walks through the bush in a barmy 13C...I thought  it was meant to be summer here?  (I'll be eating those words when it reaches 40C and I'm complaining about the heat!!!).
Why: easy to run whilst staying with family, will be harder later on.
Last hard: a very steep hill yesterday
Last rest: Monday from running, but Friday for a proper rest.
Lyrics: don't think I know today's

Another cloudy day here, hoping it doesn't rain least it means the snakes appear to be hiding!

Have a good one all.

Evening.  Came home from work today really tired. Had no motivation to go out but forced myself out on the streets.  Only did 3.5 miles including 20 x 30s 'fast' and 30s slow.  Two phone calls during it (on duty) so not ideal.  

Lyrics, yes indeed!

05/02/2014 at 22:13

no on the lyrics again,

Better today

Lunch run 6 x 2 min intervals, was due to be 10 but IBS got in the way again, so followed that up tonight with a stead 1 hour and felt great.....

Take care
