Internet was a no go yesterday did manage to get online a few times but couldn't stay online for long

Monday short of time and sodidn't get the chance to  but Monday and Tuesday short 1½ miles in the heat but kept it short think this week will be an enforced taper for Saturday

Just back fromwork decided to run home noew i don't have to get up and run It was 1.7 miles but boy was it hard could feel it in my calves guess being on my feet for 10 hours don't help

What: 1.7 miles
Why: to escape the 31 degree heat later (Dubi Dave don't laugh)
Last hard : that was
Lyrics rings a bell

Morning LMH and Pammie

LMH: I'm  at work. We got decorators in to do plastering.

25/07/2012 at 08:20

Very sensible birkmyre!

Pammie - 31C? We're only forecast a high of 26C. It must have taken quite a lot of mental strength to run home after a night at work - well done you. Are you racing on Saturday?

25/07/2012 at 10:04

morning all
London expected in the 30s again today - certainly feels that way

did the 800 reps yesterday, baking hot still at 6:30pm , I have never sweated as much
Got back in the car, said it was still 28deg...
today - 7 miles steady
why -miles miles miles
not sure I know the words either...

25/07/2012 at 10:07

Blimey, it's hot! But I love summer

Well done braving the heat Pammie and 7d. Although that sunstroke sounded horrendous! 15 miles in those temperatures if you are not used to it is bonkers! Glad you are feeling better

alex, good to see you back.

emzap: good news from the fizz!

Well, we did a lovely bike ride on the Baltic coastal path yesterday. It got very hot towards the end but we kept lathering on the sunscreen, so no damage done. A lovely sea swim as a reward at the end of the tour. Nice.


what: 14 miles medium long midweek run
why: schedule
last hard: dragging myself out of bed at 5:30 on my hols to escape the worst of the heat
last rest: 17/7
lyrics: no

Only a few more days and it's the Olympics !!

25/07/2012 at 11:55

Morning! (Just!)

No sun here yet today...19.5 degrees the car says, and thick grey cloud which doesn't seem to want to shift.

What: a walk plus stretches

Dustin: thought of you yesterday evening when you were doing the 8s...rather you than me!
Chick: medium long midweek runs seem to be a major building platform for a decent marathon.

25/07/2012 at 12:44

oh gawd my feet are not touching the ground  right now

hope you are all okay, warm wishes to you all anyway!

What bailed after afew yards
Why Just didn't feel right
Lyrics yes

Will try an easy few miles tomorrow and then cycle to work. Was planning a cut back week anyway as I'm busy all weekend.

Nice result in the footie

25/07/2012 at 21:25

Evening all,

Postie - Ah well, these things happen! At least it was in a cut back week!
Pammie - My internet is playing up too...keeps dropping out and is very annoying! What do you have on this weekend?
Wabo - Glad to see you are enjoying your visitors' time!!
Chicka - Some good effort going in there!
LMH - I'm back on the turbo tomorrow for a longer steady ride...will see if I start leaning towards the hate side!!

Swimming for me today...felt the best I ever have in the pool for the first 400m. Lost it a bit for some of the next 400m set, but got it back in the middle. Had a decent last 400m too but was getting a little tired then!! A really good 1200m done!

25/07/2012 at 21:33

Evening all, sporadic internet here too. 7M in the evening (apparently it's easier when that hot yellow thing in the sky is lower) with the middle 4 at tempo. Felt very good.

Birkmyre: The Ghost Runner is a cracking book, inspirational stuff.

25/07/2012 at 21:55

sevend: Cheers, been wanting to read it since it came out.

26/07/2012 at 00:25
Evenin' all!

What : 6 miles easy plus 6x120m stride outs
What: because I knew I was going to be knackered!
Last Hard: everything seems to be hard at the moment
Last rest: Mon 16th July

The stride outs were good, though pretty ungainly even allowing for the fact that this is the first time I've legged it for a couple of years. On the other hand the "easy" running was feeble. I've lost the ability to control my pace and also to anticipate the appropriate effort to deliver an on-pace run for a specified distance.

God knows how tomorrows planned 11.7M at 8:30 pace will turn out........
