Morning you lot
Todays lyrics: Young teacher, the subject. Of schoolgirl fantasy
Yesterdays lyrics: Happy Birthday' by Altered Images. Just had to be as it was MrsBs birthday yesterday.
What:5M on the snow. Freezing again. Slippy on the pathways so ran most on the grass.
Why: Love running in snow, being careful though. Great to hear feet crunching through snow. Okay so I'm like abig kid at times re this !
Cakes: MissB made her mum a choccy birthday cake for yesterday and it was 100% Delicious and its all eaten.
Have a good one.
That was a lovely thought from Miss B.
Blisters/Alehouse - I've been told to leave my cakes for a week between marzipan and icing, is that not necessary? Any tips for getting the icing flat? I'm using royal with a little glycerin.
Unexpected day off today. Could do with getting a long bike/turbo in but I did an hour on the turbo yesterday (before I knew) and am a little tired so the day will mostly be taken up with xmas prep I think.
What: swim setWhy: I'm only doing one a week as it isLast hard: 2/12Last rest: 1/12
Lyrics - yes.
Morning LMH: it sure was. She's into baking now which is nice. Her scones are cracking
morning all...cakes cakes and cakes, if anyone needs a taster, I'm happy to help! I used to be a bit of a baker back in the day, don't really get as much time now unfortunately...Didn't make the club session yesterday (youngest had schools sportsfixture, so no car), so opted for a 7m tempo instead. Reasonably zippy in 49:40.today - something easywhy - recovery last rest - fridaylast hard - yesterdaylyric - think so...
happy birthday to mrs b yesterday
birkmyre I am with you about running on snow! It enables me to do an off road run on a winter night which I love!
alehouse hope it goes well
What: see above, will do one of them later
why: I love it
last hard: short fast run last night with the club
last easy: last thursday maybe?
have a good day all
Saw radiology team: need more tests before a decision whether I am suitable for a type of radiation called brachytherapy. The other option remains a prostatectomy. Positive meeting!
Would be able to run on snow: two problems though...there isn't any and I can't run yet!
More cross training coming up later (wallpapering etc).
oh lyrics yes!
nice one alehouse
Good news Alehouse.
Speedwork is overrated Tom - being able to run is the main thing. It was more how to get a level surface on my icing that I was interested in - though I have a feeling I may end up going for the 'snow scene' look.
2.1k swum and even though I'm only doing one session a week at the moment I do feel as though it's starting to get a little better. Not back to where it was and not good but ok and, mostly, enjoyable.
AH..good news methinks.Tom...I aspire to where you areLyrics...yes and hope Tom's pun was unintentionalWhat: 5k last night with core session before work, tkd tonightWhy: Because I could and because I have to.Last Hard?Rest as per TuesdayHoped to get away early then notified of conference call, followed by board, followed by work Secret Santa...It's tough
LMH humm I think you're right about jam between the cake and marzipan, but I think I also put it between the marzipan and icing. Maybe this is unconventional, but it seemed to work last time!Ale good news. Hope you hear soon.
No news from my doctor, tried to ring him, but he closed at 12...I hope he rings tomorrow, I'm in quite a bit of pain!
What: something small outsideWhy: it's sunny so I need to make the most of it, but I'm in pain, so we'll see how much running I can tolerate!Last hard: trying to work out how to see a German doctor!
Highs of 0 for tomorrow and highs of -5 predicted for the weekend...I think I may hibernate soon!
Have a good one all.
5m on the moving belt.
Off to see Johnny Fingers later.

I'm temporarily Garmin-less since my tumble destroyed it. I should get a replacement hopefully this week though.

What: trying to work out how to see a doctor in Germany...Why: that bite I had 2 years ago that flared up again last year, has flared up again...doc thinks it may be leishmaniasis (I don't want a parasite )Last hard: hearing that I may have a nasty parasite!
Ugh emzap that sounds nasty! I hope you can get it sorted sooner rather than later.alehouse: some good news at last. That cake talk makes my mouth water. I have no idea what you are on about though. I presume it's some traditional English Christmas cake? Germans tend to bake loads of different cookies for Christmas ("Plätzchen"). Some are gingerbread, others iced, many are chocolate-covered and contain plenty of nuts or almonds. Generally they have about a million calories per piece . And strangely they taste better the longer they rest. So baking them now for Christmas would be right. Of course they never last that long ...what: 10 miles in the coldwhy: I wanted tolast hard: trying to stay upright - there was plenty of icelast rest: Mondaylyrics: yes
So I managed 2 miles outside before the pain made me retreat. Then did 15 mins of strength and core so about 30 mins in total, not a complete waste!Chick I have discovered Leberkuchen. They are amazing, but you're right they have about a million calories each but they're so good you can eat the whole packet in one sitting...
emzap - not exactly warm here either. Hope you can sort the doctor. Are you at the stage where a visit to and A&E department would be indicated?
chickadeee - traditional English xmas cake, a very rich, moist fruit cake covered with marzipan and then icing. Made a few weeks or months in advance then fed until it's time to marzipan, left for a week before icing.
Thanks Tom - I'm going for home made icing.
what do you feed a cake, LMH ? I'm having horror visions of a mahoosive cake sitting in pantry going "feed me, feed me". A bit like Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors
Chicka he he he. Brandy or whiskey usually!LMH nothing A&E could do. need to just wait and bear the pain It's not so bad unless I run, or sit/lie on it. Fingers crossed I'll hear tomorrow though
