Meldy 1:05

did 3.8k myself last week but speed is still yet to come and with a 1:22 best (IM Wales) 1:35 wasn't to disappointing

cycled to park run saturday, shinny new PB (25:25) (oh to be as quick as Tired Badger) cycled home, then found out pool was closed for County champoinship, so Mrs SA desides that "we" should do her long run on Saturday so ground out an 11 miler. Bike on Sunday was nice 35 miles, 6 mile recovery on Monday, last night was 30mins turbo and 20 mins treadmill, 8 mile run tonight.

Ran for an hour yesterday then a great hour's swim with NEWT.  Now time to jump on turbo and then a brick run afterwards to a) muddy up these shiny new trail shoes and b) run the dog around the woods.

So then, after much introspection I decided to go for a little jog to help clear the head.  Perhaps "jog" is a little dishonest as a shuffle or perhaps an oscilation would be the more accurate description of my most recent attempt at exercise. 

That said, 30 or so mins outside crawling along the canal has really lifted the mood.  Still, bet I'm a grumpy so and so in a few hours time....

Goodness .. I think I might need to get my excuses in ready for tomorrow
All hinges on me getting my arris out of bed in time to whizz the horse round the woods to be back home, eaten and in the pool in good time to be out of it before the schools pile in .. if not it will just become a long time trial with the time I have!

a 45 minute run for me as well ahead of tomorrows physio appt

It has got decidedly cooler here again today just when I was looking forwards to a nice bike ride on Sunday

Evening all

Had a good (for me) session today

- 50min spin - mix of easy and drills

Followed by
- 4k swim as 3 x 1k building plus 1k recovery

Fastest 1k ( the 3rd one) was 18:37 ... So happy with that

Evening all.

Had to work later today so meant i had to get up at 6am to do my 1 hour run

Not fun.

Drop into the Team Minni thread. There's loads of fruit cakes on there getting up at 4am to do long runs before work....

Not much happening over here.  Still Finking (how come I think of David Beckham every time I look at my Fink book?) for the most part, adapting as I need to.  Had my first group swim training this morning. 2400 yards in about an hour.  Was a bit intimidated at first but I'm glad I joined up.  Also have the first race of our local Triple Crown of Running (horse racing reference for Louisville of course) this Saturday.  5K for the first event and I want to try for a sub 24.  The ol' Doggy has inspired me. If he can do a 22:30, I should be able to do a 24, right? Right? Right!

I'm sure you could whoop me on a 5k IY. 4am running spoons, sod that. Left the army to avoid waking up at silly oclock.

Going to try for a sub 22 on Saturday, never thought i'd say that. Mind you, the thought makes me feel a bit sick.
Was going to pace my daughter round but remembered she has the regional CC championships on Sunday so she wont be park running.

Great running guys!  About time I timed a 5k again.  I usually do it along the canal towpath, might give it a go tomorrow (out on bike today hopefully, hitting some hills, though it's started p*ssing down).

07/03/2013 at 09:53

I am one of the fruit cakes - not on the Team Minnie thread, but in general getting up around 4ish to fit my training in - only way it gets done

For all those Man Flu doubters


From Jan 2013:

The man flu phenomenon has been the brunt of women's scorn for years. But now one neuroscientist claims to have proof that men do have more to complain about when it comes to flu.

I of course will assume it's fine to interchange the final word in the sentance above from flu to cold at every opportunity.

G'day all

Easy day for me today

AM - Insanity session

LUNCH - 40min steady run

07/03/2013 at 14:57

Quick hour on the bike hitting the hills.  Pain in the *rse just going out for an hour in the wet ... takes that long to sort stuff out afterwards.

swapped my days around so I have a rest day today instead of saturday, as I'm knackered this week. Am going to do a long swim tomorrow, though I am way out of Meldy's league

07/03/2013 at 15:37

Sorry, Doggie, didn't mean to short you 27 seconds
