Scott's training log, advice, support

Posted: Yesterday at 22:03

Go well tomorrow Scott! Remember it is supposed to hurt: "Pain is temporary, pride is permanent". If I remember correctly Lance  Armstrong used to write that on the back of his hands before races: I may be mistaken, but the message stands!

And having just watched England's cricketers win I am reminded of my other favourite quotation from former England captain Andrew Strauss: "Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualise your success." 

Look forward to the report!

Just watched England cricketers win, which reminded me of former captain Andrew Stauss's wise words: "Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualise your success."

Hope you are heading in the right direction Postie!

Good win from Fulham, RFJ, which has put my mate's Watford team up. Leicester still heading in the right direction too. Enjoy tomorrow.

Morning again!

Oh dear, Gobi! And recover well MrsG! 

And oh dear LMH! Listen to SC!

SC: enjoy Madrid...am sure you will find your mojo there!

Wabo: which baby? Is your daughter's Peruvian friend still here?

What: 5.31k off road

Why: supposed to be an easy day but it ended up faster than intended or expected. Legs felt fine after last night which is both good and unusual!

Lyrics: no...where is Birks?!

Evening again!

What: 6.5k including 2 x 1k quite hard in 4:06 and 4:06 with 50% recovery i.e. 2:03

Why: need to throw in a few faster bits. How I ever used to run  quite a bit faster than that I will never know!

Enjoy tomorrow Joe  (and Saturday and Sunday).
