morning all For a quick synopsis of last night's vets meet, I think the technical term is "bugger" Pencilled in for pole vault, triple jump, 800 and 3k (the latter two as non scoring). Only problem was the first 3 were all at the same time! Managed to fend off the PV, so after some decent warm up and bouncy practice jumps things looked good. First jump , hit the board, something strains on the inner thigh, manage to get the jump done but leg felt very sore. Stretched, and stretched some more, but aborted round two about 10 yards down the runway. Scuppered both the 800 and 3k. Hobbled away and did some more stretching. Slightly better this morning but still niggly. Stupid event anyway... what - club night, so we'll see how much running (or otherwise) I can muster. I will not be going mad why - see above last hard - yesterday last rest - hopefully not the next two weeks.
hello all Alex - I'm keeping everything crossed for you RFJ - enjoy the break what - vets league why - last one of the season. Rumour has it we have no pole vaulter last rest - a week ago last hard - dragging myself thru 20k off road yesterday. Keep waiting for this rain we've been promised, the garden needs it..
morning all, not had a great read through yet but looks like the hot and mugginess has spread from the South! Get up between 4-5 every day for work so my natural inclination at weekends is to sleep in a little later! what - just off out for 90 mins easy why - vets league tomorrow, did track early yesterday : 3m w/u 6x800s with 400 recoveries, 2m c/d. Was going to do localish 10k but I'd probably only jog round so it seems a waste of time and money to do it. last rest - 7 days last hard - yesterday.
University #2 yesterday (Bournemouth). Small campus with little or no sports facilities, so don't think eldest will be going there. Courses offered were OK, but she's after the extra benefits. STuff to do in the town / beach but that was the only plus point. Roads yesterday were a joke though, It's only 60 miles away so should be a 'local' one, took over 2 1/2 hours to get there in the end!. Made it to Loughborough last week half an hour quicker!
