The bike...  altho my legs are still a bit tired from last night so they're up on the couch - run tomorrow

26/07/2013 at 20:30

Wow back on thought it was just my iPad playing up lol

First park run tomorrow for well over a year. Just hope old bar code still works lol will be a family run so no pb to target this time  

When my mojo is low I look to the forum for inspiration so glad I'm not the only one

Oops, uncovered the hybrid and went out for a short ride with Mr Steady. It only needed a quick lube on the chain and pump up the tyres. I only wanted to do a short ride and am thinking of starting to commute by bike or possibly part bike ride.   I need to put the saddle up as my legs did not extend enough but found the riding position odd although the saddle was comfortable. Mr Steady reckons we have not been out on the hybrids for 2 years, the last time being the weekend that his mum was rushed into hospital. I aim to ride the roadie on Sunday with the bike club.

ST, I have only done one Parkrun, so you are in good company.

Guys, does running around with a 3 & 4 year old all day count as training? Oo managed a 30min run yesterday so still hoping will b ok for the birthday Olympic! 

Well done out on the bike Steady. I would love to commute to work but we have no changing facilities. Attempting to persuade OH that park run is a god idea for us both!

Get it on ST!!!!!! Do you need a HTFU or a JFDI!

Good morning, good luck to everyone competing this weekend. 

Did cycle yesterday, I love my new clipped in shoes, really seemed to make a difference, new pb of 40.38 on my route yippee.

Lots of race reports please to liven up my weekend of pager slavery  


27/07/2013 at 08:03

Righto Mrs D will do!

CJ riding a hybrid after the road bike does feel wierd

Yay ST family run - husband has a knee injury so only me running and sometimes a friend.


I did a gentle 60 min hilly run this morning! Trying to wake up the legs which responded well - off to London this morning - husband has been having a Wagner-fest at the Proms Not really my cup of tea but I'm sure I can find a shop or two to eyeball!

Having a much needed rest day, trying to catch up on much needed sleep, I can't believe I'm calling 8am on a Saturday a "nice lie in"

epic bike ride planned for tomorrow 70ish miler, my longest distance yet

Good luck to all competing this weekend, and happy training or resting to the rest of us

Show off!

Aw EP, my OH feels your pain. He put up with me in plaster on our first ever holiday together. 

Enjoy the bike tomorrow JP, just the 70 miles is it - lightweight 

I'm tapering... Sort of. But managed to get OH out on the bike with me for 35mins today. Then it absolutely tipped it down.

27/07/2013 at 21:18

Hi Razor Ironman Sir my ass is in gear well got my ass whoop by my 7 year old son at park run this morning but my time will come I'm still recovering from injury he went out at 8 minutes for first mile which I struggled from there onwards lol. 

27/07/2013 at 21:45

Well done ST

EP - Oh No! That is terrible! Hope your holiday isn't ruined too much.

LSR this morning. About 17 miles. I ran down to parkrun, then ran parkrun (slightly quicker) then home again. I did everything wrong - didn't eat dinner yesterday cos I wasn't hungry. Had porridge this morning and then started running within 5 mins. My daughter came with me on the bike and ran parkrun in the middle with a superb time of 30:43 and then biked back, so she was starving so on the way home we stopped off at McD's for sausage-egg-McMuffin But my stomach seemed happy enough.

mmmm... Mcmuffins!

Ok, so panicking about next weekend. Can I produce all the excuses now? It is the triathlon way!!!!

28/07/2013 at 13:29

I did a very gentle, very hilly 4 miles on the bike and my tummy didnt explode or any major pain or internal rubbing...its very weird cycling while concentrating on internal things. I go back to the surgeon in 7 days, hopefully he'll give me the all clear. I might try a gentle run this week, at least if something is not right he'll be able to spot it.

Its good to see everyone doing training and races.

Hi everyone lots of travelling and no training - I  don't think  messing around in the pool with the kids counts. I have scouted out a route to run though. 

Mrs D you will be great next weekend. Which one is it? 

Pete good to hear you are mending quickly

Chilli... Nice running

Pete.... Take it easy mate don't overdo it.

ST..... Fancy getting whooped by your 7 yr old (pathetic)  

MrsD.... From now on excuses are not permitted so I don't want to hear any, ok.

Knocking over a minute off my Parkrun in the last 2 runs I think I'm entitled to show off
