Lyrics - Although he had past history

Where is birks?

I just don't know what to do. RHR is up again (though not above doing something 'easy' limits) but gunk production seems to have decreased slightly though throat is still bad. Guess I shall see how I feel as the day goes on as won't have the opportunity to do anything until this afternoon anyway.

What:             something easy
Why:              it's supposed to be a taper, not total rest
Last hard:       not gettng better
Last rest:        most of March was spent resting

What:3.5M Easy

Why: Bit stiff legged

Cold and frosty one up here.


Sorry not been on .Our dining room had to get finished decorated and new carpet laid. So very busy. I didn't lay new carpet we got experts in...


Oldest son survived Newcastle over weekend. Down at his pals big brothers flat

Catch up time.

Middling sort of day here: some blue sky, lots of white cloud, dry but sun has yet to peep through.
What: maybe short loop after work if quiet
Last hard: march
Lyrics: no

morning all,
Blisters - glad the break was good
what - something easy, 6 miles or so
why - club last night, wasn't hills, was 3x1800m with 200m recoveries. Ran quite solidly, worked out about 7m/miling for the reps, fast enough for now. Great to be training in daylight again though.
Aches still in hammy/glutes, QoP tonight, a grown man will cry.
last hard - yesterday
last rest - thursday
lyric - think so

70 mins on turbo d&d with 30mins time trial using power.

later its an easy run followed by swim session with open water swimmers. The session is all about getting to  grips with swimming in open water. Its in a pool but mid April we graduate to the Sea and lakes. The openwater aspect of the swim is my biggest fail at the moment and needs to be sorted!!!.

LMH - its coming together for you!!

03/04/2013 at 09:27

Morning all.

What: hopefully a hike somewhere up a mountain
Why: at last the weather is good for it
Last hard: still trying to get someone to take responsibility for my damaged baggage...

LMH you've still got a while, take it easy and I'm sure everything will come together.
Dustin good session last night
Paddy good luck with the open water training.

Have a good one all.

What power meter ae you using Paddy? It doesn't feel as though it's coming together - I very much feel as though it's falling apart!

emzap - can you not purchase a new case and claim it back or are they insisting on supplying a replacement? Must be very frustrating. When do you fly home?

03/04/2013 at 10:01

Agree Emz, can't you just buy another bag? Annoying yes, but surely better than all the headache?
Enjoy the dip Paddy

03/04/2013 at 10:24

LMH - It's coming together slowly, but it is coming together. You must realise that you are in panic time - everything is magnified!! The power meter is as comes with the Tacx Flow Turbo Trainer. 

03/04/2013 at 11:37

emzap - hope you have a good hike - I'm starting to miss the hills now, especially as all my walking friends are enjoying glorious snowy sunshiney views every day!

I'm having one of those 'can't be bothered' days.  My plan is to do 6 x 800m with 2 mins recovery but my motivation right now is zero!  I will get out eventually, mind you

Lyrics - no.

LMH - hope you feel back at your best soon.

You've got the same turbo as me Paddy, and given this winter's foul weather it's been a great little tool. That and the DVD player.

Like others here my form is falling apart at the moment. All forms of activity are on hold. I was wrapped up in double jumper and a coat last evening, yet still frozen. Then hot sweats in the night. Before 6 am, I had to get up and dose up on pain relief etc. When the alarm went off my wife grumped across me to turn it off. I couldn't hear it over the tinitis. That was quite amusing really.

Now then. Donaldo. Get your arse out of that door. Because you can. 6x800 off 2 minutes? That sounds like a tea break between sets. You'll spend longer stood still than running.

03/04/2013 at 13:02

Ah - a posh turbo. I fancied one of those - but not the price tag. Maybe one day.

Blister's - hope you're soon feeling better.

donaldo - think of those days when you thought that you may not be able to run - usually works for me.

My problem at the moment is deciding what's me being lazy and what's sensible. Just home from work and having lunch then need to decide whether to take Grace out for an hours run, do the originally intended 10 miles or opt for something on the turbo (a bit windy for the bike).

Back in for another nosey.

03/04/2013 at 13:08

03/04/2013 at 14:27

lol I got out that door and did the session, on advice from my fellow posters!


10 miles including 6 x 800m with 2 mins recovery.  Times were 2:49, 2:48, 2:53, 2:46, 2:49, 2:59. 


Had a good 5 mile warm up before starting the reps and then just headed home, leaving me about a mile to warm down.  It was undulating on the roads and you can probably tell that rep 6 was mostly uphill but I worked my ass off to get under 3 minutes.  

Loved the session today, nice weather too, lovely sunshine but still a bit nippy!

Thanks for the motivation, Blisters and AH, get those ailments cured as soon as! 

03/04/2013 at 14:39

Birkmyre, are you going across to Dunoon for the Jukes 5 miler on Saturday? that I mention it... I can't even remember if you are still in Glenpark or not! :P

Wow, donaldo, that's shifting! Great reps . You look exactly like your avatar in the pic you posted yesterday, btw

wabo: happy tapering

Poor old blisters

LMH: difficult question to answer. How do you feel about running? Dreading it because you know it will hurt or the pace will be slow or are you itching to go? Maybe you could start with 5 miles and then double it if you are feeling strong enough?

what: 5 miles tonight
why: CNBA this morning (it was freeeeeezing again!!)
last hard: Monday
last rest: yesterday
lyrics: no

03/04/2013 at 15:55


What 10ish commute
Why tapered MWLR
Lyrics no

LMH be patient.

Did 5 very easy then slowly ramped up the pace to mp for mile 10.

03/04/2013 at 16:21

Knew you'd enjoy it once you were out donaldo.

chickadeee - to be honest I feel as if I could just take to the sofa with copious quantities of chocolate but I took Grace out for a run instead and we had an enjoyable 7 mile run despite the wind. Don't wear the HRM when I run with Grace as there's too much stop/start with letting her off the lead, putting her back on, stopping whilst she has a drink or a paddle etc so no idea how high the effort was for the pace - which is probably what made it more enjoyable

Not one of my virtues postie

Is the spell checker not working for anyone else?

03/04/2013 at 16:30

Good afternoon: France is as cold as the UK!

Yesterday's lyrics were "I love Paris in the Springtime", various artists, including Sinatra, for one.

No running, but lots of walking.

Good to see you Wabo: enjoy the taper.

Decent session, Don.

Lyrics: non.
