Why: X-training and getting fellow Fellow out of bed and into the pool by 9.15
Last hard: Sunday's 2hr run
Last rest: Saturday
Heart rate training is paying off, and the cooler weather is also helping. I still feel as if I go very very very very slow on the long run, with the snails zooming past me, BUT the numbers don't lie: for the same HR, the average speed is getting faster. I also don't need an afternoon nap on long run days. Why did I not start this 5 years ago?
Congrats on getting Ashes tix, Emzap! I'm left stranded without TMS in the background while writing, until the next international on home soil.
I did not mean to disappear for days on end after posting last Monday, but with the start of term near, life suddenly became hectic. Had another good ramble on Tuesday (it was hot and humid), our cooldown was walking on the boardwalk through a bog, and we were rewarded with views of sundew (plant) and pitcher plants. Interval training on Thursday, and this weekend a conference has stolen my running time.
Nice race, Donaldo!
LMH: shoulders... had mine done at 18 to stop it from dislocating, so technically different but still a pain to recover from. I sense recovery strategies have improved, though.
Why: something different from running and quite good against floppy arms
Last hard: weekend
Last rest: Monday, sort of
Difference between Coleman-style gaffs and Inverdale is that the latter's comments were based on somebody's body shape, not just silly words. While I take Blister's point that these guys fill the airwaves with all sorts of waffle, there were other ways to frame that sort of question if he really wanted to point out she doesn't quite look like the usual polished super-model. BTW, I love RFJ's suggestion for his punishment! Would be a good one for charity, too!
Cricket and writing go hand in hand for me, so if you need me I'll be working on that article with a "rewrite and resubmit". Yay!
OH: I found out last year that Haar is called (transl. to English) "the (sea) flame" here. I'm unsure of the etymology but the effect is just the same.
