You are far too kind

been to see a sports massage person today to help sort out tight ITB/knee problems. Painful but hopefully useful in terms of sorting my sock out

My shit has been going everywhere this weekend, but then I have had the runs .

Other than that my running comeback was going to plan.

Ooh IronCat5... nasty.

I've been quietly stuffing away. I'm trying to get back in to the habit of early training. I'm hoping if I get into it now it will be easier when the dark mornings are here.

This morning's 6am run was rather a shock to the system.

I have a lot of late shifts this week so will only get the shorter sessions in which I suppose given the time of year is no bad thing !!

Urgh, dark winter mornings. Very depressing last autumn. I remember not being able to run in the woods in the morning anymore.

Quite sad this time round as we move away to a more urban setting in October. Currently the woods are immediately beyond the back fence.

About a mile in a straight line. Depends on what access the development (ex-RAF Bracknell) has at the back. There is plenty of green space around the development, though nothing 'long'.

Sock doing OK, 4K swim, hour time trial on the bike and a marathon on Saturday, bike and heavy white wine usage Sunday, then an hour on the bike and an hours run tonight. Goals need to be getting my running back to a decent speed, very, very slow marathon time.

im doing something radically wrong. I must be. 

Considering getting some more 121 lessons, but I could do without spending the money at the moment!

Have you got your eye on a target Lee?

Yep, HC, here are my weight loss targets:

Weight loss:
18 lbs by 30th October (Florida holiday, hurrah!)
30 lbs by end of the year
43 lbs by end Feb.14
54 lbs by end of April (Big Sur Marathon)

I've got more to lose than that, but those goals will do me for now.

I put some shit in my sock last night with a tough spin class.  Managed to keep the resistance higher throughout, whereas last week I had to wind it back as I was fooked.  I LOVE spin. Miss LifesCycle in Edinburgh, but this instructor last night was pretty good.  I'm having a night off tonight as i haven't stopped since early Saturday morning, but will go for a run on Wednesday, come hell or high water.  Running mojo has apparently run off somewhere, but i'm going to go out and have a look for it....
