Lyrics - We were working secretly for the military.
Hope the exam goes well Dibs. Good on you for getting a run in yesterday.
Hope you get that phone call birks.

why: schedule a bit tight today
last hard: 9 days ago
last rest Monday
hope all goes well today Dibs
morning all, echo best wishes for the exam DibsNice session PP, and Don, yes ease up. A week's easy/rest now is better than 2 weeks off next month!Didn't get to the club yesterday, late running girls hockey/netball meant that I didn't have the car. So set the watch to 2 minute intervals, and after mile w/u did 10x 2min fast, 2 min steady. Think I managed to hold the pace throughout which is never easy training solo.Today - head says 7miles easy at lunch, legs say a couple of pints would be better.why - last major training before parliament hill on saturday (Wabo - you going?)last rest - Declast hard - yesterdaylyric - I think I should do...Oh and eldest got the call up for county hockey squad, so very chuffed for her!
Wow busy on here already !
Okay so yesterdays lyrics were U2 and 'Angel of Harlem.'
What:30mins Steady in wet and cold
Why: Getting out.
dibs: All the best with your exams.
Coffee and catch up.
Feeling pleasantly stiff after 12 miles with strides last night. Torrential rain throughout. Pretty cold. Felt fantastic... especially afterwards, sat by a warm fire.
Thanks for good wishes for my little one yesterday... but I didn't deserve it. She'd whinged in the night and rather than comfort her in the cot, I made the bad, lazy, half-asleep decision to bring her into our bed - leading to a night of being kicked, pushed and sleeping with my centre-of-gravity within an inch of overhanging the mattress!
Good luck with exams dibs... and congrats on hockey call up dustin.
What: Recovery Run later
Why: Be ready for my long run on Thur or Fri, if opportunity arises.
Last rest: Monday
I love that baby picture card book with baby lying tranversely across bed with parent hanging off each side
BM sounds err keen
Good news for MissDustin
Oh dear, Blisters - you need more time to recover, methinks. I was out for 3 months with pneumonia in 2011 and it took months for me to get a decent pace/HR ratio back ... patience!!nice 12, NN LMH: impressive resilience on the turbo! I would simply die of boredom and fall off the thing ...what: 11.6 hilly mileswhy: more Boston specific training and 2nd MLR of the weeklast hard: not falling on me arse (there was snow on the ground; just enough to hide the frozen puddles; not enough to wear Yaktrax)last rest: Mondaylyrics: no
I don't have a HRM... but my HR must have been 99% listening to that long long match point when Andy was 6-4 down in the 3rd set tie break. Wow. I think that's my training done for the day!!
Game on. He's been dominated throughout, but is back in the match at 2 sets to 1 down.
dibs good luck with exam
blisters wish you better
dustin nice one re the hockey and your eldest!
what: little run later
why: not done anything since Saturday
last hard sat
last easy: all the days in between
now on very strong brain numbing pain killers (only 2 a day) back is bringing me down, doing my exercises so possibly they are having a knock on effect, utterly miserable
Dibs: everything crossed for you.
Have a good one!
me againnose - ahh a slippery slope when they start sleeping in your bed...but yes, its the easy thing to do!head ruled the day - run down to the palace and two laps of Green park. No idea how far, but just under the hour. Legs hurt now.Wabo - enjoy the run, and hope the back easesChicka - decent midweek effort!
Had a rather tortuous run this morning harbouring some sort of a tummy bug. By the time it was getting to binable strengths I wax over half way so ended up struggling to the end.
Before I come out with a load of patronising anecdotes, is this your first child Nose?
Ooops - just noticed my typo in the title - sorry.
(((Wabo))) that's pants - hope you feel better soon.
Dustin - great news for Miss D. Well done on resisting the beers.
Hope it's short lived postie.
Chickadeee - riding 112 miles can be a bit mind numbing too so it's good practice
OH - hope you get time for your swim.
Nearly double the distance AF - your long run for the week?
My run started off rather slowly this morning but that was fine, surprisingly after two miles the pace picked up and I was (relatively speaking) flying by the end.
LMH: mid week long jog; remember, I'm a P&D follower. Although I'm more "Retarded Marathoning" than "Advanced Marathoning".
Exam today went well, thanks for the wishes everyone.
I was pulled into a meeting straight after the exam to be told that the exam board will not pass me. The take home message was 'good students fail'.
celebration for my earlier exam going well, was short lived.
What: 8x hills
why: Life goes on
possibly a swim later if my mate gets back.
What: 5 km easyWhy: legs were a little achy and still coughingLast hard: remembering how to speak English, have spoken only German for 3 days now as OH is away. He's back later though, thank goodness.Last rest: most of last weekLyrics: nope
Mixed news there Dibs. Glad exam was ok, but rubbish about the exam board Dustin great news about your oldest LMH you have a very high boredom thresholdWabo hope back is better soon. Have you seen anyone about it?Postie, hope you feel better soon.Chicka don't fall over, apparently it's heading our way tomorrow...
Have a good evening all
postie postie... No. We've made the same mistakes with number one!
Tried to start the thread this morning but couldn't get on to the forum at 6:30.
What: some very muddy playing fields...will have to calculate how much...Why: friend had asked me to help map out a course for a possible parkrun. Sadly I have had to tell him I don't think it is possible...the course was ankle deep in mud, plus there was a gate.
Mixed news indeed, Dibs.
Re weight, having managed to keep it off over Christmas I am now struggling with the scales, and don't know why. More running and less food required I guess.
Sorry to hear that the exam board were not sympathetic Dibs - next time.
Ah - the MLR AF, I've decided that it's probably a god idea for me to skip that this week, hoping for a LSR on Sunday though.
emzap - needs must, not safe outside at the moment and I need the bike time.
