chopped off - remember that this site does not like the little arrowheads on shift ad the comma and fullstop keys
Columba you have sent AWS off in the huff I shall remember that saying! It doesn't really transpose into running as only extreme cases run 3 times a day
hmmm - I wouldn't like to plot out the human genome model for each individual to see what turns on and off bits of it There was a very good documentary on Carole King on BBC4 a while back which went through her catalogue of music along with those written with Gerry Goffin and others - good stuff.
A little more variety this morning 1 min walk followed by 30 min of run - which knackered me and then a slow stagger up Hipps Hill to get home for 45 min and 4.75 miles (9:32m/m) and avHR 130 with a max of 148
1m 09:46 119 136 2m 08:31 133 141 3m 08:54 140 144 4m 10:50 136 143 - plenty of walk breaks on Hipps HIll .7m 07:00 136 148
Columba commiserations on the knee flare up. I do hope it settles own but I suspect rest/ice are the only options on the table just now.. You may not lose too much fitness before the race from now but you have already had a couple of weeks off.
aws good to hear from you Moving and resorting stuff is not good news. Hope you get settled soon.
Graham good progress so far. Looks like a new messiah has emerged for the Toon
MIck 27C!! It has reverted to 8C here today with a cold northerly airflow you also sound as if you are making good progress.
I read a quotation a little while ago of doubtful parentage which went along the lines of - "there is one body of opinion that believes the universe was started by an all powerful creator and another body of opinion that believes the universe was started by a huge cosmic explosion before which nothing existed. Which is the more plausible?" - and what is the difference???
WD60 gently does it. But it is good to remind oneself of what it feels like to run fast
Welshpoppy 11 miles is a long walk!! I used to get bored after 7 miles particularly when going over the same ground
Mokshaeight yup afraid it's true and it doesn't go away!!
Ceal nasty lurgy - you must be pining for Stewart. When does he get back? Was there anything in your food as medicine course that was new to you? The constant discovery of "suoerfoods", mainly by the organisations that are coincidentally sponsored by the food groups being elevated becomes a bit wearying!
Well despite your good wishes I did return rather fuller in the frame than previously despite taking my gear and going for a 45 min run along the north side of the Solway - total elevation gain/loss 0.5m!!! Repeated the medicine in the Lakes from the hotel above Bowness but here the rise/fall was about 400m in very short order and it nearly killed me!
Super time with magnificent food and good weather to boot. But there are only so many 6 course meals one can eat with matching wines ........................honestly!
Laid a Hash trail yesterday and then ran it later on - just under 10 miles in all at a gentle pace. Did 2.6 miles this morning with only a 1 min walk at the start as it was too cold to walk after that!!
