Gobi: as RFJ notes, although some of us are a lotolder! And soon to be even older in my case!
Wabo: as LMH says...let the marzipan dry out for a week or so before you ice. I will probably ice mine around this time next week.
What: 20 mins: first and last 500m on the road, the rest off before it got too dark.Why: enjoyment!
Some not very good news: a guy who I used to share a flat with, and who has been a family friend for around 40 years, died in his sleep about two weeks ago, but wasn't found until last week. He had turned 60 in May and retired, partly to look after his mother: sadly she died soon afterwards. He was a regular "tourist" with the Alehouse team, although he wasn't really a runner. He hadn't been ill so his death was most unexpected. A "natural cause" verdict. Funeral next Weds. Not sure what it is about December: last year I was informing people of the death of two other of our members.
Emz: the L60 that I coach suffers from back tenderness, particularly during interval or hill work. I think that she needs to warm up more and also suspect if she did more of the above rather than less she would grow in strength.
What: 30 mins, with some faster parts, all off road. Why: it was not what I had intended, but had promised to show someone round part of the Burnage parkrun course, so inevitably picked it up in parts.
Will not comment on open water swimming: OH did strike me as perfectly normal when I had the pleasure of meeting him! However...
Cricket was marginally better today; just a shame about the previous three days.
RFJ: hope that today's Fulham result was the first of many under Rene. I heard very good reports of him from other staff at United and they were more sorry to see him and Mike Phelan go than Fergie.
Some decent long runs being logged: hope that is it long run wise, LMH. Don't over cook things! Cotton wool time!
Marzipan bought, and cake will be wrapped in it shortly!
LMH: I will probably use a pack and a half of marzipan for my 9 inch round cake. Did you put apricot jam on first? Note to self: get marzipan tomorrow!
Emz: loads of parkruns in SA now (if that is where you are going!) And cricket!
Paddy: the only progression is sompared to the last week, which has not been a good one running-wise. Racing seems to take too much out of me, and that is without putting the foot totally to the floor! Except for last weekend I have now run over an hour every Saturday since the end of September. Hope to get up to 90 mins any time soon, niggles permitting.
