Better stop dreaming of the quiet life ‘cos it's the one we'll never know And quit running for that runaway bus ‘cos those rosy days are few And stop apologising for the things you've never done, ‘cos time is short and life is cruelBut it's up to us to change this title of the song.
OK, For a change it's not a 60's song, but it is an ear worm. I'll swim with this one and I'll get a PB. Are you going to be the gazelle or the lion today?

If you could carry on organising that would be great Alehouse - I actually have, or have read, many of the books on the list, including all of the tri related ones and more. At the moment many of those on my xmas wish list are cycling related. The daft thing is I don't get much time to read - it's mainly whilst I'm on holiday - but I do like a good book.
Keep the suggestions coming guys.
What: short, easy runWhy: taperLast hard: 21/10Last rest: 4/11
Lyrics - yes.
morning all,Ghost runner is a great book, just finished that as is feet in the clouds. I have to admit to finding Hamuki Murakami's book extremely dull....I'd add barefoot runner (abebe bikele) by Paul Rambali & perfect distance (coe & ovett) by Pat Butcher - as mentioned by birks Guy at work just gave me running with the kenyans (adharanand finn) I'll let you know if thats any good.meanwhile, club night yesterday, 5x800m hard with 250m recovery (on grass), threw in an extra 400m (half lap) hard to finish. Not my brightest move with continuing hamstring soreness but in truth it held up ok. I did opt out of the 50m shuttles that followed.today - possibly 4 or 5 easy, I'll see how tired the legs are, otherwise restwhy - yesterdaylast rest - thursdaylast hard - yesterdaylyric - yes indeedy, at least moving into my era!RFJ - you have mailhave a great day

Good afternoon!What: 8.5km Home Run.Why: I'm lead running again this week, which is great as I'd be doing it anyway, so am putting my personal proceeds (a tenner) towards VLM fundraising. I was out for drinks with a friend last night and she pledged £60 so I'll be holding her to that! Last hard: Yesterday's 3k interval treadmill didn't feel as tough, I think I'm getting faster! Last rest: Monday.Lyrics nope. I enjoyed Murakami as a gentle reflection on running, but I haven't read any proper running books.
How on earth do people find time to read? Especially runners.
What: Probably nothing
Why: Club speed session took it out of my joints a bit. They are still be a bit fragile 17 days post-marathon.

OH don't overdo it! How are you feeling today?Ale let us know how the pb attempt goes :P Will be good news if you manage the walk though I imagine the end being in the pub helps?!Blisters is an "ear worm" when you get a song stuck in your head? Is it an English expression? I only ask as I was asked what the English expression was and I said there wasn't one. Both the German and Afrikaans translate to "ear worm" though.
What: 5.12km of HILLSWhy: there are hills about so I thought I'd give it a bash.
It hurt, but I did it
Have a good one all.
emzap - it is indeed an 'ear worm' when you can't get a song out of your head.
OH - glad to hear that you're being sensible.
RW - usually when on holiday or injured!
The two middle miles of my 30 minute run ended up being 'Minks easy' but I was very god for the last half mile
ale and Dustin : I too couldn't get into the Murakami book.
If anyone wants my Muarakami book...
