Chick: good news on day 25! But not on the work load! I have similar thoughts to you re the lyrics.

Kentish: it wasn't so much the carpets as the shifting of beds and furniture...and particularly re-fitting the door. 

Dustin: given that last night was on grass decent paces achieved!

What: was very uncertain about doing the uni session but after a longish warm up and lots of stretching I did the first half: 2 mins/3 mins/4 mins with 1 min recovery between each. Was reasonably pleased with the paces but decided that half a session was enough. 7k covered.

Why: session was available, and I know I can't make next week due to work. Managed to keep the sensible head on!

Lyrics: not sure.

What: to be decided, but something for sure, being day 480

Why: having a new bedroom carpet fitted at some point, so will have to work around that, and also have to work around how my legs might be feeling. The last three Wednesdays I have done at least part of the Uni speed session. Whether I do this week is uncertain!

Does emptying a bedroom and re-fitting a door count as cross-training?

Back later.

Evening again!

What: 5.42k easy

Why: being kind to the legs. They were a little more sore than I had planned!

Evening, for it is dark!

Lyrics: indeed.

What: half an hour or so later

Why: caution following yesterday's excesses (running-wise, not food or drink). Legs seemed fine today: wonder if that is because of the 5k or so gently run after the hills? And it was all off road. 

OL: what sort of speed was your speed session? 

Dustin: what surface will your session be on?

Morning again!

Mince pies...I never make them until much closer to Christmas as the mince pie elves seem to steal them when no-one is looking.

What: 15k including 10 x a triangle consisting of 100 metres up a steep incline, 120 metres striding out down side 2 and 150 metres jog to return to the start.

Why: an even older bloke round the corner told me to do it. Was pretty tough but good to run with someone different. Hope I don't regret it tomorrow!

Edit: whilst I think about it Sweatshop have a 20% discount until midnight (enter Nov20 at checkout). This includes 20% off sale items.

Indeed, a little chilly out there!

Lyrics: no, but therefore yes. I have been in trouble in the past for not using either the first line, or a line from the chorus, or a well known line!

Wabo:  bragging rights at work? 

Don: enjoyed the photos! 

What: will be an hour plus, plus 10 times a hill

Why: M70 around the corner suggested I join him. I think this will be hard!

Back later.

At least the culprits have been caught, Chick. (And you got your runs in!0

R&S: if your dad does parkruns that much you should persuade him to join this thread!

Managed to miss the sun which came out whilst I was shopping, and went in again once I started running, but nevertheless it was quite reasonable out: 7 degrees and the wind has subsided a little.

What: just 4k

Why: 3.9 would have been too little, and 4.1 too much. Easy day. One of my neighbours (M70, usually high in the rankings whatever age group or distance) has asked me to do his long run with him tomorrow. His long runs always have something in the middle. Perhaps that is the secret to success! Tomorrow it is 10 x a hill (not sure which one as yet).

IC: LFoM is 27th November, then 18th December as the last Friday of December is the 25th and something else is happening that day.

Lyrics: my streak ends

What: something gentle, probably when the sun comes out later. Currently around 2 degrees and grey. 

Why: my streak continues

Enjoy the long run, OL.
