My gear got laid out on the lawn and hosed off before it got anywhere near the washing machine
The blog is good. Go on, shame me into working harder.
Swam 60 lengths this morning.
Then had a big, sticky Danish pastry. It's all about balance.
Balance? You should have had one pastry in each hand the balance it out surely?
I shall remember that very sound advice for next time
No idea what you're talking about.
Raf, how did you do it? You must head north more often.
Clear, bright blue sky and sunshine this morning.
Bloody lawnmower just went on fire. Now I'll never find that lost pygmy tribe.
Good stuff, gas. I am inspired and motivated. (And can't let you get the better of me now).
10k run on for tomorrow morning, with partner in crime. She's also going to take me for a sea swim sometime this week (hopefully).
Nice work gas.
First proper bike ride on the main road today, 28 miles and my first roundabout ever on a bike .. scary stuff.
Also had a bee hit my forehead and drop down between my eye and sunglasses, that was a bit unnerving causing me to vig vag a bit over the road.
Otherwise it was a good ride and wish I'd started riding on the main road a long time ago
Good effort BBT.
Partner In Crime can't run tomorrow, so it'll just be me and my new choonz on the Shuffle.
However, am wondering, if it's not too windy, whether I might cycle instead of running since I've not been out on the bike for soooo long.
Bike might be a good idea if the weather is good, you never know when itsgoing to be nice again!!
Brick is a fine idea, gas. Looking forward to seeing the pics.
No bike this morning. V windy here, and not in the fettle for a 20 mile fight to stay upright. Went for a run, which was, erm
Wind at my back to start was good, but not so helpful on the homeward half of the loop! 10k took me 1:03 .
Best tip for dealing with a stitch, anyone?
On the plus side, have discovered what will be my training anthem - Desmond Dekker "You Can Get It If You Really Want"
NR at least you braved the elements and got out there
I don't get stitches often and I just HTFU and run through it but I have also spoken to other runners/friends in the past and they do one of the following
Putting your hand over the place where your stitch is and pushing firmly and bending your torso in the direction of the stitch.
By changing your breathing so that if the stitch is on the right hand side, breath out sharply when your left foot strikes the ground. If the stitch is on the left hand side, breath out sharply when your right foot strikes the ground.
HTFU? But I'm a laydee, don't y'know
Just had a look at the Garmin stats. Pace with wind behind 8.45m/m, into wind 12.58.
Sounds challenging, IY. Good effort.
