Blisters - did they tell you about some other child as we normally get? "helpful", "polite", "works well", "co-operative" --- nah not my two...Have parents 'evening' for my youngest tonight. Well I say evening, its 4-6 which is afternoon in my book.

beautiful day looking likely, got to work in daylight AND with a yellow thing in the sky...

Banged my head on side twice in pool on Monday, cut finger requiring attention after clash of badminton racquets yesterday ... Maybe should stick to " safe" sports!

RFJ not again  I hope there isn't any lasting damage.
How did your MLR go LMH?
Good luck with the parents' evening Dustin.

Have a good afternoon all.

Good news Gobi. That's a lot of running for a cyclist

Slowly - but I got the miles in emzap. Sounds as though you may need the rest more than the 3 miles?

26/02/2014 at 13:01


Lyrics: yes!

Parents'evenings: not any more, for both reasons!

What: something later, to be decided. Hopefully half an hour off road.
Why: should be able to run in the light.

26/02/2014 at 13:09

Round 3 of work bake off today (sponge cakes) so will certainly need a swim later!

26/02/2014 at 13:19

ouch, RFJ! And there isn't even any ice or snow about 

more ouch from OH! Crikey, watch out what you are doing, will ya

what: another double - 5 miles am done; intervals looming for the evening
why: P&D says so - in fact, they say 11 miles with 5 x 1200s but that's too much for one sesh I find so I prefer to split it
last hard: Sunday
last rest: 17/2
lyrics: yes

26/02/2014 at 13:26


Lyrics: Yes, good choice.

Catch up over coffee

26/02/2014 at 15:23

Arvo guys,

What: 3.2 miles (26.30) and a swim later

Why: HM is now very very loomy

Legs felt good today actually, although hips hurt more with rest (defo inflammation happening). I brought some anti inflam gel, I am usually not a believer but will try anything.

26/02/2014 at 15:44

Have not run a stride since Sunday
26/02/2014 at 16:24

"loomy" ???
Google didn't help ...

Whether it it is all in the mind or not, I find anti-inflammatory gels do seem to help with soft tissue pain especially if superficial.
Plus if it appears to help, then it is helping 

26/02/2014 at 16:38

An abbreviation for 'looming' I think OH. Who is winning the bake off?

Good that the legs are feeling fresher Dibs.

You get the bike out for 5 miles Gobi?!?

26/02/2014 at 17:50

haha OH- Yea, 'looming'.. it's all a bit loomy ya know

LMH- Yea, I would class today's run as a goodin, legs haven't felt that fresh in a while. rest has done some good i think! 3 days to go! 


26/02/2014 at 18:41

Cracking session tonight after work.  7 miles including 16 x 2 min fast (5K pace) with 1 min recovery.  Enjoyed it although it was really hard work. 

Lyrics, unfortunately, yes.  I really dislike the band and the song and now its stuck in my head!

26/02/2014 at 18:45
LMH - you misunderstand me

Yesterday and Monday I rode but today I ran twice
26/02/2014 at 19:01


Well did the 3 miles and am feeling better for it.  

He he, loomy, well we all know how the Aussies like to abbreviate everything (I mean who decided to call it a sanger  )  Is the half this weekend?

26/02/2014 at 19:34

Spot on Emzap! Yep, this sunday is the half, hoping for weather and legs like today. Getting a bit more excited for it, still nervous but I know I am going to PB, just by how much

26/02/2014 at 19:36


What: 6k steady, although more on road than off in the end
Why: the mud was too tiring!

Pammie: where are you? Are you still doing LFOM?
