Lyrics - Libraries gave us power

It's a pain when they do that to shoes Alehouse. Are you sure they're going to be ok to use though? No point in a self-inflicted injury if it can be avoided.

What:                 swim
Why:                  trying to stay strong
Last hard:          motivating myself on the bike
Last rest:           2/7

Yesterday's lyrics - The Line by Noah And The Whale

What: maybe a walk
Why: back sore after swimming
Last hard: swimming
Lyrics: nope

Ale 1st test starts today

Well done forever, good weekend of running there

Have a good one all
09/07/2014 at 07:09
I know this one! So decided to join in

What - interval swim
Why - tapering from today
Last hard - yesterday, tempo run
Lyrics - yes!

Welcome Mrs Noel!
Nice win forever
LmH - If that's August I think it is unlikely as I think I'm in Kent (family) for bank holiday w/e
what - 6 easy lunchtime
why - legs mashed: 3x1800s last night with 200 recoveries. Tried to ran each 'flat out' must've worked as its the closest I've come to being sick since a hard track session in the winter.
last rest - 10 days
last hard - yesterday
lyric - on a barren streak at the moment.

I wonder if the Germans were singing "its just like watching Brazil" last night. That change strip has to go though.

Welcome to the DTT Mrs Noel - tapering for what?

You must be getting really fed up now emzap.

It is August Dustin.

Whilst walking Grace I decided that it was far too nice a morning to waste in the pool so today's what turned into an easy run.

09/07/2014 at 09:38
Hope it goes well tonight RFJ.

Just 3.8 miles today, legs have nothing left in them! Going to take a couple of rest days now and then have a parkrun on Saturday.

Dustin, that was some result last night! I dont watch a lot of football but looking forward to the 2nd semi-final tonight. Not expecting a similar result though!
09/07/2014 at 09:44

I don't watch football either, but being in Germany it's hard to avoid it round here!  Think Sunday may be a bit crazy (hooters going till 1am this morning, and that was only after winning the semifinal...)

LMH wasn't fed up until I looked outside, 2 days of rain with no sign of it letting up, so now a walk is looking more and more unlikely.  I keep telling myself (and work) I'll be back next week, but it never comes!  I will be back next week though!

Hello Mrs Noel.

Morning! And welcome Mrs N!

Lyrics: no

What: 22 mins/4k off road on cinder paths
Why: Trying to get back into it. 1st k slow, next two quicker, last one slower. Felt a lot better than last night.

Pleasant day here, although I said that yesterday and then it rained: torrential with the grass and drive flooded!

Watching the cricket now: a good pitch to bat on! Then off to a neighbour's funeral: a decent innings. 91.

Don, or anyone else: I have two spare tickets for Commonwealth Hockey on Thursday 24th at 7.00, cost price, £15 each if you know of anyone who wants them. Son can't go and it is before I arrive in Bonnie Scotland.

09/07/2014 at 13:27


Cracking warm and sunny day here.

Lots to catch up on

09/07/2014 at 13:33

Welcome Mrs Noel

Phwoar - 7:1 - I'm mighty impressed. I never thought they had it in them. Honestly. Made me feel sorry for Brazil. At the end of the day it's their home cup!! Hope it's going to be a Dutch-German final . That's my first conscious memory of footy: the 1974 final (I was six at the time) and was allowed to stay up late

Forever: very impressive weekend of racing there. Nice to have some reassurance that speed and fitness are back.

Welcome, Mrs. Noel 

what: 12 miles
why: away over the WE, so need to get some miles in now
last rest: Monday (unless you count core work)
last hard:  dunno
lyrics: no

Afternoon all,

Welcome Mrs Noel.

  • What:  5ish.  finally found a flat route.  Pity that I felt carp and my knee hurt

  • Last Hard:  N/A
  • Last Rest;  Saturday

09/07/2014 at 15:02
alehouse why oh why do they always think they can improve a shoe? Change the colour if they have too but if it's selling I don't understand the need to 'improve'. Have you any races planned for the future?

chickadee happy days for Germany eh? I actually felt uncomfortable watching it at some points!

Dustin lol always a good indicator of working hard.

birkmyre enjoy the athletics!

Happy summer XC running RFJ

LMH good idea to make the most of the sunshine, you never know how long it will be around!

What: am 45 mins easy plus 20 x 30 secs steep hill reps.
pm 30 mins easy

Why; Building strength and recovery

Last rest: Friday
