All been there Andrew! Have to have a big blow out now and again! Well I may be a little raw still after the German Shepherd Dog incident (claw marks going slowly) but there's just too many of the f**kers! keep sniffer dogs, guide dogs, police dogs..round all the others up and cull half of them. Job done .
Good parkrunning over the weekend. Bus - good account, quite amusing (sorry!!) good session Dean. Phil - Andy Maud was a tennis pro as in 'teaching it' in a tennis club.
Right. Did a 1-2-3-4-5-4-3-2-1 pyramid at Willen lake MK after the missus had done a the parkrun. Sunday, did a 16 miler from ours in LB to the pool we take our boy to at Newport Pagnell..bit lumpy over the firat half. Felt ok, hip flexors maoning as per usual.
Did 6 getting to work this morning - then realised as I had left my trousers at home! So ran 2 miles from Camden down to Next on Oxford St and back to buy some more..knackered!
Phil - I think that's Andy Maud in the middle of the photo, think was top ten (the ex-tennis pro who tried his hand at running..sick making!)
Bus - the recoveries do seem a bit quick to me too! but it's what Simmonds told us we'd had and it is about right, looking back. I really think though that the core stuff has helped this week, felt a lot smoother going round.
Iron - I've got a track 20 secs away from my front door! It's now half as wide and tarmac with 'exercise' points round it. Obviously it's busy with bloody dog walkers and kids on scooters!! Weird as the other photos show my estate being built too!
No worries! Speaking to the owner, I was suprised as he seemed quite intelligent - 'one of us' if you like, as he did a bit of running and cycling himself. Although my wife did say obviously not 'that' intelligent if he has been down the Police station previously!
I think (and hope) that this will be the kick up the backside that he needs to keep the thing muzzled and on a lead!
Cheese and Port is lovely, but I think I'll stick to a bit of flapjack and some green tea , just can't run completely fuel free! Some great miles in there Phil and good reps Dean! Bus...please don't mention PH, still having nightmares about that place!!
10 x 800 tonight, managed 4 at 2.29, 5 at 2.28 and the last one 2.25, absolutely bolloxed at the end. I think it was 80 secs recovery. Well happy with that, more happy with feeling totally niggle free on my left side, hopefully those Mo and Rupp conditioning exercises are helping!
Dachs - yes, Nationals was horrible..apparenatly the intercounties has a different course this year, hopefully getting rid of the long drag. Weather possibly might be getting colder, which could mean drier hopefully..
Luton tonight, back on the track again..wonder what Simmons has in store for us..
