We just fled into the house. It's too hot, even in the shade ...

Em: off to Magdeburg, exploring the Eastern counties. The Elbe cycle path goes right by our house so we can start directly from home.

What: a little swim at 8am and quite possibly another one tonight before bedtime
Why: too hot to run
Last hard: fending off mossies
Last rest: Sunday
Lyrics: no

Glad to hear Bro did well. I remember that minni posted about her biking incident. Can't believe she's now come down with a chest infection. Poor thing

17.5 miles run into work this morning it means I can be lazy at the weekend when it's supposed to get even hotter. And then we are off cycling for a few days. Looking forward to a week of non running

Enjoy your time off in Spanish alehouses, alehouse

six hours LMH, you slacker

Em: damn hot today, innit?

I actually got a grip yesterday and cycled to the lake for a 30 min swim. It was lovely. I wouldn't have fancied a run but a short splash was brilliant. And today I ran into work  even took a little detour to make it my long run so I can be lazy again on Sunday when it's supposed to get really hot.

what: 17.5 miles
why: planning ahead
last hard: oh those last few in the heat weren't so nice
last rest: Sunday
lyrics: no

We are off cycling for a few days on Monday. So next week will be a bike week and I won't take any running kit (panniers aren't big enough to fit it all in).

Oh bugger, 2old   hope you find a good doc.

Haha, Barry - your slow 7:50 would be tempo pace for me . Ran into work this morning with a little detour to make it 17.5 but av. pace was 9mm. I seem to be stuck there while it's hot. At least I wasn't knackered and I'm so glad I don't have to do a long run at the weekend. I much rather go for a swim when it's like this.

Blimey, forever!! You are too hard core for me. Great 5k time. Well done.

BP sounds veeery low, Dibs. Nice running.

Nice long run LMH

Hope the ankle settles, postie.

Yesterday's lyrics: Love runs out, One Republic. It was the World cup theme tune on Germany's equivalent to Match of the day

Lazy day for me. Having a rough time at work and needed the extra zzz this morning. I may run into work tomorrow. Hope it's not too hot.

Hello all you lovely people

Sorry I've been a bit quiet ... I had a lot of football to watch  and celebrate our team winning the World Cup

Well done all you speedsters. Malcs, you are unbelievable.  Hope Bro did alright. A lot of people have disappeared from Minni's thread (including Minni). so it's all gone a bit quiet.

No miraculous fitness gains to report here although I do bash our regular 50-60 mile weeks but the weather is seriuosly getting to me. I've never been good in the heat and this summer is testing my willpower more than ever coz it's over 20 most mornings already and humidity is usually around 95%. Can't wait for the autumn. Hopefully things will have improved by then.

It was good fun and the boys got a heroes' welcome in Berlin yesterday. TBH, I had no clue they would be this good. I had my bets on Spain and Brazil (we did a fanatasy world cup at work and the first tip we had to register was who we thought would win). Ahem. Goes to show I don't know much about footy at all . But I understand they really grew together and played as a team which they haven't done in 24 years and hey presto, they win the cup

Ouch, col

I did 13 miles this morning. Weather is getting to me. 95% humidity again and bloody flies everywhere  but hey, all miles in the bank. I'm just glad I'm not training for an autumn marathon. 13-15 miles is the most I can do in this kind of weather before losing the will to live.
