morning all, not had a great read through yet but looks like the hot and mugginess has spread from the South!
Get up between 4-5 every day for work so my natural inclination at weekends is to sleep in a little later!
what - just off out for 90 mins easy
why - vets league tomorrow, did track early yesterday : 3m w/u 6x800s with 400 recoveries, 2m c/d. 
Was going to do localish 10k but I'd probably only jog round so it seems a waste of time and money to do it.
last rest - 7 days
last hard - yesterday.

University #2 yesterday (Bournemouth). Small campus with little or no sports facilities, so don't think eldest will be going there. Courses offered were OK, but she's after the extra benefits. STuff to do in the town / beach but that was the only plus point. Roads yesterday were a joke though, It's only 60 miles away so should be a 'local' one, took over 2 1/2 hours to get there in the end!. Made it to Loughborough last week half an hour quicker!

Ok so you got to the semis, lets get the clamour for MBEs out the way before you go back to playing in front of 5-600 again in the league.

Good luck Wabo
RFJ - just the 1x1k in the pyramid
Still muggy but more overcast today, but great to run in!
what - U11 training, small amount of running then off out with friends who are moving to NY for a few drinks (and likely a few more)
why - it's what we do
last rest - Sunday
last hard - will be getting up tomorrow...

Didn't watch the footy, but a cracking goal to win it...

Have a great day

It's July , it's supposed to be hot.
It is not unexpected, it is not extreme either.

Cotswold - do you hear approaching cyclists equally well with the headphones in?
Ok so they won't kill you but it will hurt.

Muggy and sweaty and that was at half 5 this morning...
what - lunchtime 5 miler
why - too nice to be inside, plus have swim timekeepers course tonight.
Trained last night, track warm up, then pyramids 200m/400m/600/800/1k and back down again, with 250m recovery jog between each. mile cool down.
Normally sweat a lot in mid-winter so was even wringing shorts and socks out last night.
last rest - Sunday
last hard - yesterday
June mileage was about 110.
LmH you are right, the carrot is needed, low key 10k that I might run on Sunday, not raced that distance for about 5 years, and probably doing a marathon (salisbury) in August. 800m, 3k and triple jump at the vets meet first on Monday though.

Normally run facing the traffic apart from when you can't see round the corner.
Any motorist should know that pedestrians should walk on the opposite side of the road (facing traffic). Indeed that was one of my highway code questions when I passed my test 30 years ago. Haven't changed it have they?

Seldom get a problem, usually some old duffer not moving over enough. Most cars usually fairly generous, even get some drivers indicate, they are moving out.

Dibs - great report and well done
OH - that's annoying re the appointment. Not exactly sure how NHS Scotland allocate their resources, but that doesn't sound great.
Ale - let me know if you find him, been searching here for years.
Chick - 11 miles is hard in my book...

what - club night, so some form of torture
why - need a kick
last rest - Sunday
last hard - a week ago

Enjoy the sunshine, short sleeves and shorts leaving the house this morning, tube will be stifling later
