Lyrics - That place we all run to
Hope the service went well last night Blisters. I didn't realise it was the church choir you were singing in - I was a chorister in the dim and distant. I think the voice is like everything else though, use it or lose it and I've certainly lost mine. The turbo is an excellent training tool, requires some discipline to use it effectively but good for mental strength too. Riding in a pack is nice but we race solo.
Inventive emzap. Hope the cake was nice.
What: long bike - though on the mtbWhy: time, opportunity and floodingLast hard: 2/12Last rest: 22/12
Afternoon LMH. Very quiet on here today!
What: 3 slow milesWhy: day 1 of marathon scheduleSite of biopsy giving me some pain today, think the 6.2 I did the other day was a bit much for it. Hopefully the dressing will be off in the next few days though...
Off to UK at 5am tomorrow, hope the roads aren't too wet...
Have a good one all.
hello all, hope you all had a lovely day yesterday!!just done 5 and a bit, lovely and mild out there but the cough/throat has refsurfaced so was a little wheezy.oh well...Sneaked off for 30 minutes yesterday over the fields, well I say fields , more like flood plain and shin deep mud. But it did give me an appetite (and a thirst!!)Ought to enter some races/get a goal as training been steady if unspectacular of late. (One 10+ miler in 4 weeks)last hard - a week agolast rest - 12 daysnot sure of the words...
What: 3k walk including 5 x 80 metres slooow jog. Why: Building up, I hope. No Achilles or calf issues...but my "good" shin was tender. Suspect it is from the walking where I am getting a pretty decent pace going.
Well done, Sweep: you can't get a PB every race!
Lyrics: no doubt I should, but don't.
emzap - hope it's just a question of having over done it slightly - there's no redness, swelling, itchiness around the wound is there? Much drier here this morning so hopefully you'll be ok travelling.
sweep - that's so infuriating I know but you seem to have a good perspective. When's the next attempt.
Dustin - are you doing VLM next year?
Walked Grace this morning and was surprised by how much the ground had dried overnight then arrived home to find that Mark had a flat tyre on his mtb so we took the road bikes out in the end - just over two hours done with minimal standing water (though we did avoid the two roads that we found were closed yesterday).
What: 6 milesWhy: day 2 of marathon schedule(Day 1 - yesterday, 4 mile run).
First week of 16 week marathon schedule for Brighton in April. First two days all good!
Hope everyone has had a great Christmas and is enjoying a good Boxing Day.
Tom - I received the CD as a xmas present and think it's quite different, and on first couple of listenings, better than their last offering.
My best running related gift is probably my RW training diary. I love to keep a paper record as well as the Garmin download and much prefer it to the Triathletes Training Diary which I have been bought previously.
Thanks Tom and Little M.iss Happy! Hope you are having a good Christmas.
Need to get a running diary to record my training.
Rest day tomorrow for me before getting back out again on Friday morning.
Hello Davey, have you tried fetcheveryone as an online running log?
Re running related gifts, mine was a pair of windproof, breathable gloves. Tried them this morning and they are great
LMH No more redness or itching than before, so think it's ok, just a bit of a shock to the system I guess!
So excited about coming back tomorrow, even if it is underwater!
Thanks Sweep and Emzap - just ordered the RW Training Diary. Just hope it comes soon so I can start recording my training.
No running gifts for me this Christmas, but have been enjoying my Sweatshop band earphones I bought myself the other week (and only £8)!
And emzap - I love my GORE running gloves for cold and wet weather.
What: 4 mile gentle 'yak on lovely cool but bright morning to one of Orkney's gloups (sea caves with open roof)(LMH - into the Gloup and on to Brough of Deerness)Had thought about a short run after but having to change a flat on the trailer put paid to that.Why: Lovely weather for winter, yesterday and today (more gales forecast for later this week)Last rest: yesterdayLast Hard: a while agoLyrics no
Some steady miles going in for folk on here despite the holiday
Other than on here, I have ye to record a (non race) mile
OH - holidays are the best time to get the miles in. I have fond memories of the Gloup and the seals
Davey - are you targeting any particular races/distances next year?
