Lyrics - Save some face, you know you've only got one.

I think I may have used the lyrics before - but not this year

Back to work except I guess for our friends north of the border who have another bank holiday - make the most of it guys.

birks - have you shaken that cold yet?

What:                  swim session
Why:                   trying to do at least one a week
Last hard:           last year
Last rest:            last year


Edit (I forgot) yesterday's lyrics were Happy New Year by Abba - not one of their classics!

Hope it goes well at the physio Alehouse.

Davey - we seem to share an eclectic taste in music.

Good luck Alehouse

What: am 8km on the beach. Gale force winds so very slow 4k slog up the beach followed by a speedier tempo run back down Last day at the beach. Drove back home mid afternoon.
pm - 30mins just to stretch the legs back out again. Still gale force winds out there but a bit more sheltered at home.

Tomorrow we're off to Queenstown for a few days so I'll be running in some seriously beautiful countryside I hope. Although I expect I'll do tomorrow's run early before we go.

Why: Health Centre still closed, on call for maternity and p$$ing down outside
Last Hard: a while ago

Alehouse good luck and if I read that correctly, Happy Birthday.

OH, yes I'm going through the grind that is the annual appraisal as well. Ours is electronic and it's taking bleeding hours. I'm not even sure if I'm doing it correctly. What is billed as an hour's investment in management time is going to wipe out the entire day. It's also one of those lovely grey days with no significant weather. You never hear that on the forecast.

Afternoon all!

Lyrics - yup!

Signed up for Edinburgh Marathon in May this morning - its about time I had a target!

Managed 10 yesterday in 79:46 but just 3.1 today, with my dog, in 26:45, over hill, muck and dale!

02/01/2013 at 14:57


You did, indeed, read correctly, Blisters. Trying to keep it quiet! Decent present from physio: I can run. Well, not run as we might know it, but another step in the right direction.

Good to see you Donaldo! Any more books?!

02/01/2013 at 15:12

Aye, alehouse, I put a sequel out in October but it hasn't sold very well, so I'm accepting that my literary career may be a short and sweet one!


02/01/2013 at 15:58

Happy New Year all

Sorry, been a bit AWOL over the past few days. How brilliant to see some familar names back on here, namely M. & donaldo

Happy Birthday, ale and happy running

what: 12 miles d&d before work
why: 'twas raining cats 'n dogs yesterday and I wimped out

Many happy returns Ale.
Well managed to get out at lunchtime for a speedy 10k along to Vauxhall and back (42.55) followed by 1.7 miles easier (14.10) recovery. On the upside the (slightly) drizzly weather meant the Embankment wasn't overrun by tourists, on the downside, all the safety barriers from NewYearsEve were still out , but I suspect not where they were originally set up. Needless to say rather than play dodge the tourist, it was more like chicane hell with steel bars...

Afternoon all.

What: day of work in the office for the UK company I work for
Why: rare opportunity!
Lyrics: nope

Managed a 5 miler yesterday morning, despite a 3 am bed time.  Felt quite good apart from a slightly stiff calf.  Rest tomorrow due to work/sleeping on people's floors makes it harder to get out for a run.  May manage one tomorrow though, I'll have to wait and see.

Happy birthday Ale
Some good parkruns over the past few days.
M are you somewhere hot with all this beach running?

Have a good evening.

Happy birthday Alehouse. Must be the day for it Donaldo, ive just signed up for the Chester marathon today.

After an extended absence for no reason I can put my finger on, I've finally got the bug back.           

Lyrics:               No                                                                                     What:                  Out and back, not sure how far but nice and easy Why:                   easing myself back in                                                        Last hard:           too long ago
Last rest:            about the last six months

Happy Birthday Alehouse and what a great present.

Happy Birthday Alehouse

What 8@8 commute
Why faffed about too much to run further
Lyrics no

Had a suppurb oppertunity to bag 15 into work with a reduced pack weight but ended up missing the start time due to inefficient sandwich construction, should have made them the night before. Hasd another stab at reducing pace a la Gobi style but the 8's were more like 7:45's but still in the right direction.

Will try 7 with hills tomorrow as I have the day off reffereeing the kids.
