morning all!
Much colder this morning, but thankfully no rain.
Chicka - hope you are over the fall, sounds a bit nasty
Tom - a positive outcome from the physio, and all the best for a swift return to usual business
Wabo - I hope you are not 'flooded in' at work!

Club last night, variation to the schedule: 16x300s on grass, with 100 jog back to the start. First 100m uphill, then turn into the wind. Nice. Ran better than expected, almost a rep ahead of my usual peers by the end, and just off the slowest of the fast guys.
Legs feeling it this morning though, so...
what - either rest or 4 easy
why - see above
last rest - 12 days
last hard - yesterday
Should have got yesterdays group (if not the track).
I think I know today's too.

have a wonderful day

Lyrics: yes

last night: 2M easy then 5 x 0.5mile @ 5k pace with 0.25 recoveries, then 2M easy.

tonight: 50 mins including 20 mins fartlek

WHY: its on the schedule!

Not cold here, in fact its much warmer than teh same time last year when I was cycling in arm warmers and buff, todays pre dawn cycle was shorts and short sleeve shirt only.

Tom: sounds hopeful, 

Dustin: sounds as if your on form, any races coming up?

LMH: what you tapering for?

What: Cycled 45K pre dawn, watched the moon set, the planets shine out and the planes line up to land at the airport.Will do intervals tonight.
Why: Mid season maintenance
Last Hard: Friday
Last Rest: Thursday

Lyrics: Yes

Good morning

Lyrics - not today I'm afraid. I did google it and I do know the song, but I've never been able to concentrate on the lyrics whilst watching the video.

Jogged very slowly for 15mins, well within the physio's discomfort parameters - a better outcome than I expected. Glutes a bit DOM'd from yesterdays strength work but more strengthening done today.

Attended the clubs AGM last night and am now a committee member - pleased to be able to get involved.

Have good day y'all

What: interviewing prospective new partner
Why: plenty of work to share around
Last rest from exercise: Monday
Lyrics: no

Here I have to confess that I more often listen to music without lyrics(R3).
I tend to know some before 1982 (after which I became a junior doctor and my social life ceased for a few years)

LMH - yes, a pleasant evening out for the 3 of us

28/11/2012 at 12:24

afternoon all

no we were not flooded in but oh dear the fields are totally flooded

little bit more weight off today, 4lbs to go!

what: 2.25 easy nice runthis morning

why: Off to see spurs tonight so that was all the time I had, had a great club run last night

last hard: this morning running early

last easy: monday

There is something really nice about running in a pack I rediscovered last night, I did nearly 6 miles and it was almost effortless!

28/11/2012 at 12:31
Wabo: well done on weight loss, the group run...and not being flooded out! Enjoy Spurs!

Tom: all sounds good!

What: 30 boring minutes on the exercise bike. Stretches. Core and walk later.

Lyrics: no
28/11/2012 at 12:37

Good news Tom.

Hope you find the right person OH. Glad you all had an enjoyable evening.

Well done on the weight loss Wabo.

DD - I'm running a 10 mile race on Sunday. Not on top form but my 10 mile PB is years old and soft and I want to be fresh enough to have a really good workout.

Sounds as though you need a good play list for whilst you're on the exercise bike Alehouse. Are you allowed to do intervals? What news of Paddy?

This mornings run wasn't exactly easy and neither was it inside but it was soul warming. I ran what for me is quite a hilly little 4 mile loop with a large section through open fields and with far reaching views. Set me up for the day!

28/11/2012 at 12:48

Happy tapering, LMH. That run sounds beautiful.

wabo: nice consistent weightloss. I'm bound to get fat now that I don't run

Dustin: very speedy club work!

Garmin will send me a brand spanking new 410 (the have no more 405s) complete with a 2 year warranty for nearly half price. It's complete with accessories (HRM, USB Stick, etc.). Can't complain really!

Knee felt good this morning but hurts again by now. Sitting at my desk is probably not the best thing I can do right now but I have no choice. I reckon I will be on the bench for a few more days ...  the only thing I could probably do is sit ups

28/11/2012 at 12:59
LMH: watched breakfast TV. Still bored! Was going to ask Phys about intervals tomorrow. Sounds an enjoyable run this morn!
Paddy is still struggling injury wise. Said he hopes to be back soon, though.

Oh dear Chick! Although Garmin is a good result.
28/11/2012 at 15:40

Chickadee - If you haven't already taken up Garmin's offer, Garmin 410s are on a good price of £148 at Amazon

28/11/2012 at 16:00

tom - the video is the only plus about the song
DD - just xc races until the new year, but want to do myself justice in them...

28/11/2012 at 16:17

Alehouse - I find that working to HR and doing intervals makes the time pass much more quickly.

Sorry to hear that you're benched chickadee, hope it doesn't last long.

I often feel very fortunate to have the environment that I do to run in, and the opportunity, ability and motivation to be able to enjoy it, it just seemed even better this morning.

28/11/2012 at 16:58

Greetings all,

X Trg in the gym today after night shift last night

A tad tired here today

Take care

28/11/2012 at 18:03

Lyrics: Yes
What: 6.25m undulating
Why: Early finish and light enough to run in the country
Last Hard: Yesterday's fartlek on the treadi
Last Rest: Last Friday
Chickadeee/Tom hope you're both on the mend
AH Fastine lente
Absolutely knackered after today's effort even though it wasn't hard. Pre grading at tkd tonight so no exercise involved for me. Just entered Embra...might be a tad ambitious post London but gives me two strategies for next year.

28/11/2012 at 19:50
Evening all,

Goggled the lyrics just to watch the video as didn't know the song

Had to take a day off today from running as pushed too hard on hill intervals last night, got a nasty pain on the outside of my left knee, had to walk straight legged this morning as wasn't convinced it could hold my weight, although has felt better as the day's gone on.
My own fault, shouldn't have pushed so hard straight after racing
Gonna see how it feels tomorrow before I decide whether to do tomorrows planned run.

Hope you've all had a good day
28/11/2012 at 19:58
Evening! Indeed, Straycelt, there is much to learn from the tortoise!
Take care, Sweep: you may well have identified the cause! Hope that the problem goes as quickly as it came.

Think I just heard Wabo cheer: Spurs have just taken the lead.

Resting leg now: suspect I have done too much today, including going up and down the stairs and a step ladder too many times.
28/11/2012 at 20:12
Alehouse: congratulations on overdoing it - the sign of a true road runner
