Morning. Couldn't think of lyrics so held on but need to walk Grace now.

Lyrics - Nothing here to fear, I'm just sitting around being foolish

Alehouse - sounds great.

Wabo - are you going there or are they coming back over here? I know it doesn't feel like it at the moment but it will be February before you know it.

What:            either a swim or short, easy run later
Why:             may not have access to the pool!
Last hard:      20/7
Last rest:       30/7

Yesterday's lyrics - He Ain't Heavy (for the Brownlees)

Just walked into Olympic stadium. Looking straight down pole vault runway. Awesome!

It's  warm and sunny here.

ale: Go on dare you to have 'a wee run' down the pole vault runway

I would of course Birks but my Achilles is not up to it!

afternoon all

lmh, I will be going there, although there is talk of them going to USA for a year, which will be just fine by me, I will go there instead! Quicker easier, cheaper.

Alehouse hope you are enjoying yourself!

Oh they were fitting lyrics yesterday then lmh!

What: swim later

why: ran 3 days in the trot and now my swimming needs some attention!

last hard: last night short run and circuits

last easy: sat

have a good day all

What: 7 miles yesterday evening from London EC3 to Blackheath (usual route along the Thames Path around the Isle of Dogs and through the Greenwich Foot-Tunnel) – started slow and finished strong

Why: Endurance building

Last hard: Last night – running up Vanburgh hill

Last rest: Sunday 04/ 08

 Rest day today (off to the Olympics this evening – quarter finals of men’s basketball) and most likely tomorrow (travelling on business) - looking forward to watching Mo going for gold in the 5k.

 Go Mo go!

Morning all, been offline for a bit. Still running, just busy with some things and fitting in 14 hours of Olympic TV in per day.

WHAT: 8.5M hilly

WHY: Building up half-mara training now

LAST HARD: 15M on 4/8


Been avoiding races. Alehouse: won't make next week's Sale 5k, am in Edinburgh.

Brownlee was apparently only 1:20 behind Mo. And he wouldn't have come last in the men's 10000 . How fast could he run without the swim/bike beforehand??

what: 9 miles with strides
why: basic speed
last hard: getting up this morning!
last rest: Monday
lyrics: familiar, but no

08/08/2012 at 16:27

He's probably like me chickadee and needs a good warm up

8.4 miles run at a pleasant 7:48 m/m
Excess holiday weight 3lb, which is approximately what I took with me.
With a bit of luck I'm off for a swim now.
Lyrics, no.

ale: Fair enough, can't have you pulling up injured

Still loving all the Olympic coverage.
