postie - you've helped me to be sensible, thank you. Was getting twitchy and thinking of going for a swim or even a little run today - after all I've managed a whole two days of rest - but there was a good reason to take the four days so I will contain myself.

What:                 nothing but smt
Why:                  recovery
Last hard:          21/10
Last rest:           23/10

Lyrics - yes.

Morning, lyrics sound familiar, but will have to spend the day thinking (hoping it comes on the radio)

Gonna run after work today, probably 4-5 miles.
24/10/2012 at 08:18
What: just work
Why: meeting this evening
Last hard: Sunday
Last rest: Friday
Lyrics: no

Tired today, not feeling like working until late evening
24/10/2012 at 09:08

What:  I really need to go for pacy little 3-4  miler

Why: taper week... and not done anything since Saturday

Last hard: I think last Saturday's 9 miler should count.

Last rest:  ever since

Lyrics:  I can sing them,  I can sing (and "hear") the lines that follow.  But I haven't yet worked out what the song is.  Frustrating!

Good restraint LMH, must be hard but definitely worth it in the long run. Hi Night Nurse.

What: Home Run
Why: I'm moving next month and this route takes me almost directly from current work to new home. Shame I'll only be in the job til December. 
Last hard: Sunday 10 miles.
Last rest: Yesterday.
Lyrics: Yes.

hello all,
lyric - like others, think I do, but not immediately obvious
Re time on feet. Spent most of working life in a chair, but did have an 18mth period in a different role that involved lots of walking about from dept to dept, time on feet etc. So spent I reckon 50% of my time stood up. Was about a stone lighter and ran my fastest halfMs, marathons and 10ks at the time. However this was local, so had max 8hr work day, and commute of 8 miles (each way) was train (if lazy) or bike/run, unlike now, with 70-80 minute commute each way , and ~9-10 hour working day....

I digress....last nights club session was 250m hill loop (on grass), with 100m recovery x15
Tiring to say the least, but wore spikes so at least I didnt slide everywhere.
However, I felt the niggle in my hamstring re-lurk from a few weeks back, so today...
what - possibly 6 easy lunchtime + QoP tonight (scheduled appointment)
why - recovery + screaming
last hard - I think that may be today
last rest - saturday

morning all

lmh, you will be glad of that restrain I bet!

lyrics same as everyone, Iknow I will kick myself!

just over half a pound off again this week, slowly slowly...

what: 4 miles d&d, 10.08, 9.48, 9.24 and last mile 9.08, I am a weird runner! I always get faster, and its takes me a while to get going!

why: it was there to be done

last hard: this morning mile one!

last easy: yesterday

have a good day all

What: 0
Why: having to remain on bed, leg up high, taking the tablets and hoping inflammation subsides from infection around the op site. Actually seems to be working...until I spend a short time on my feet and it flares up again. No choice about what to do then!

Lyrics: yes! Eldest often plays these. Not sure I agree with the sentiments.
24/10/2012 at 12:09

What: 22-mins gentle treadmill session.

Why: Just warming my legs back up after post-marathon rest period.

Lyrics: Unfortunately yes. Song was once played eight times in a three hour pub shift I worked. Fun!

24/10/2012 at 12:28

wabo: not weird - I call that progressive running

LMH: rest up until you properly feel like doing something.

ale: more recovery wishes for you!

NN and others: can well imagine shift work playing havoc with run performance. I notice when I work late (not shifts, just long hours) that I run badly.

Well, I may have to ditch my 10k plans for the weekend. My attempt at some 10k pace didn't go to plan. Left hamstring and calf twinges that got gradually worse. Plan was 6 x 3 mins @ 10k pace but I had to bail after 5. There's another 10k on November 4. Hopefully my body will cooperate with me doing speedwork then

What: see above - an attempt to do 10k pace
Why: it's been a while
Last hard: today
Last rest: yesterday
Lyrics: yes

24/10/2012 at 14:27

update: 6 done along the Thames , with hamstring behaving itself, although a bit achey now.
and lyric penny has dropped...."they're only easy if you know them" -  as they say

24/10/2012 at 17:20


What: 3.5 km run 2 min walk 1 with core afterwards
Why: getting back into it and slowly does it
Last hard: not just running today!

Wabo: good work on the weight loss
LMH Im glad you're still resting
Ale just take it easy, fingers crossed tomorrow will be better.

Have a good one all

24/10/2012 at 19:11


Ewan: I mis-read that and thought you'd done a 22 Mile Treadmill Session !

Glad lyrics are 'bugging' people today.

24/10/2012 at 19:18
Emzap: more worried about tomorrow than today...the dreaded prostate tests!
24/10/2012 at 20:08

ale: all the bAst for tomorrow.

24/10/2012 at 20:12

That should read. All the best for tomorrow.

24/10/2012 at 20:16

What time are you off tomorrow Alehouse?

Keep an eye on the hamstring Dustin. Did you find an autumn marathon to aim for in the end?

emzap - sounds very sensible.

Well done on the weightloss Wabo.

GGG - are you changing jobs then?

RW - keep reining yourself in, you want to feel full of bounce on the b of the bang!

chickadeee - but I do feel like doing something, I just know that whilst I could it probably wouldn't be the best thing for my legs. Mind you they were much better at the massage today than they were at the one before the marathon!

OH - not nice when work gets in the way.

24/10/2012 at 20:35

greetings all

Lyrics - think so

What - 8.5m steady
Why - Club Run
Last hard - Mon
Last rest - Sun

Take care

24/10/2012 at 21:46

LMH - work not much better for tomorrow: primary care on call finishes 18:00 then CPD meeting begins 20:00 - just enough time to fit in run with JS and something to eat!
Alehouse hope it will all be good news tomorrow although I suspect it will be longer to get a definitive answer

Probably staying at home this weekend (rather than 17.46k at Culloden)
