Today's lyrics: na, na, na, come on

Of for a run shortly. It's foggy out there so I'm expecting another sweat fest

Yidd (will you change your name back, btw?) it's ok for boys to run late in the evening. Us girls have to be extra careful too many idiots out there . I pretend that they are fast asleep at 5am. Somehow I feel safe early doors but scared at night :-/

At least I woke up early enough today and will go for a sub LT run believe it or not, it's foggy out there!! So maybe it'll end up a sub LT swim...

Glad you managed a good run, Trish

Hi guys, another one suffering with the heat at the mo.

+1 Trish ... I never seem to get up to speed/mileage again after my spring Mara until well into the autumn :-/ this year's heat is worse than ever. We seem to be suffering from constant areas of low pressure pumping hot and humid air into our region. Don't think there was a single morning when it wasn't 90 or 95% humidity. I've given up on pace expectations and just go with the flow, hoping for a holy shit moment by the autumn.

Having said that this week was a complete write off with just 3 runs of 3,6 and 6 miles... (ashamed face). Must.try.harder ....... Trouble is sleeping. I only seem to fall asleep in the early morning hours, I.e. the time when I should be out there running

VT: you are amazing. I'd kill for those numbers!! And congrats on the fab 5k the other day.

Andi: good to see you running again. Back trouble sucks. Sounds like you have it sorted now. 50 miles, wow. Just don't overcook it ...

Yidd: excellent progress.

Hot, hot, hot ..... Slept badly last night and had to cancel my planned run as there was heavy rain and thunder. I don't mind the rain but have massive respect for thunder and lightning. Instead of bringing cooler air it just increased the humidity even more if that's at all possible. This week is a write off then. Will go for vs swim later though.

Enjoy the games, birks, Don and ale.

Crossing my fingers for Mark, LMH. Hope he has a good one.

Go Steve!!!!!!! You legend. Saw him at VLM 2010 just as we came off Tower Bridge and everyone went mental shouting his name. He was in the hurt zone then and didn't hear us

Holiday sounds lovely, Dustin and well done getting some running in.

Haha, AF. Change your forum name to Rocky please

I did the quiz too and got middle distance cycling as my sport :-/ most unsuited to gymnastics which probably holds true these days. I was a gymnast as a kid though ....

Some awe-inspiring speed the, forever and Don.

RFJ: sorry you had a tough race.

Totally amazing mileage, LMH. 2x26 followed my a medium run of 21. Medium?!? Wow.

Crikey, em, sounds like German railway is going down the drain... Glad you managed a mini run though.

We killed the idea of cycling as it was just too hot to be enjoyable. Instead drove to the Harz region for a bit of hiking in the shade. Just a mini getaway but very nice. Normal running to resume tomorrow
