A quick skim read and I learn that eating Hoola hoops gives you the squats?

Apart from that, everyone has been playing at tumbling down on the pavements. What are you lot going to be like if it ever snows?

What? Boiler pilot light has been intermittently going out. It's a simple fix, I have the spare part. So I fitted it. Now it's not intermittent any more. It's permanently out. Proper repair man is booked. Bliddy amateurs.

Exercise: 8.3 miles run at 7:53m/m pace. A nice trot.

Apologies for the absence, 2 weeks without any exercise while I exorcised luminous green cold.

I hope that those racing at the weekend had a good time, or at least survived.
I’m gutted to have missed the lyrics from yesterday. Right up my street, full volume.
Great news on achieving the weight loss Alex, I haven’t dared look at the scales. However, I am now trying much harder to cut down the alcohol intake. That’s the key to my success. If I run as well.

Sunday was my first exercise for the 2 weeks, and that was a swim.
Today was an hour on the bike rollers. Although chilly in the garage, I soon warmed up. ALMOST managed to do the hour without a steadying touch of the hand on the workbench!

Lyrics. No. Situation normal.

OH PB?
Missed it yesterday. My sincere apologies. I do try and follow what's going on, honesty.

Gobi, I'm glad that you are sore. Otherwise I'd be starting to think that you were a runner with a bike.

Me?

Planned rollers. Planned change. Sod all. That's how it goes some days. 216 mile commute.

You're on fire as well today Joe. It's beginning to look like you are better than you think you are. If you are training long "slow" runs at sub 3:30 marathon pace and still having gas in the tank, then I'd be interested to see your hopes and expectations. This guy knows his onions..https://www.mcmillanrunning.com/articlePages/article/5

Anyway, for me, a typical Sunday. Today's swim set was around 2000m. The main body was targeted at being an achievable interval set. It was a good workout. Even in Lane 4 we were doing 100m reps in 1:50. The next lane were on 1:45s. Although I was starting to get anaerobic at the end, the last push gave us a 1:48. I'm well chuffed.
