Joe - nice stats, you did the same number of park runs and hilly marathon races as me!
Wabo - good skills with the track work
OH - nice photo, great place for a run
Chicka - decent mileage. I posted my highest monthly total in a long while (257), and I'm certain I've never done 3 straight 200 mile months in a row (or even in the same year)
what - steady run lunchtime
why - recovery. Club session last night, and possibly overdid things.
5 min tempo, 5x1min fast, 5 min tempo, 5x1min fast, 5 min tempo.
last rest - Saturday
last hard - Yesterday

lyric - nope

morning all,
Nice report OH, I 'ran' through it with you, although when I did it (2 years ago?) it was one of those fine weather years!
what - club night. I'll be taking it easy after the weekend excess.
why - keep on keeping on
last rest - saturday
last hard - mustering the enthusiasm to get 20 minutes done on broken legs yesterday.
The wind woke me several times last night and greeted on leaving the house to the contents of the (opposite) neighbours bin on my front garden.
Given their track record, that will still be there tonight.

Joe - good work on the double mara
SC - solid effort too
RFJ - yep, Overton-Combe Gibbet-Overton
what - possibly 3 miles easy later
why - see if I can still run
last hard - yesterday
last rest - Saturday
Surprisingly I think my legs are in better shape than they usually are after a marathon. Combination of the extra miles and 'easier' pacing perhaps.
Still knackered though, so pleased it's a short week!

Chick - sounds, erm, interesting!
RFJ - well raced, I like Cranleigh, but not run it for a few years. Good pre London race though
Don - that's a decent, solid effort, well done
Pammie - good work adding the miles
OH - decent racing, I like the Buttermere 10. Do you still get the tea and cake as part of the entry?
what - 16 mile offroad point too point race x2
Idea was to jog out, 'race' back with a club pal. Howling wind, hail, rain and naturally some mud.
Possibly overdid it on the way out (all into the wind) and despite conditions improving I had to work at it coming home. 
Still just over 32 banked (I had 16.1 each way), in about 5h35
Naturally I had two servings of tea and cake at the finish.
Why - ultra
last rest - yesterday
last hard - that will be today, although I'm not looking forward to stairs tomorrow.

late one here, 
RFJ - well done - enjoy Cranleigh tomorrow
Ale - another busy day!
Chick - more decent miles. I don't do gels either. Cake, flapjack or jelly beans, yes. Gels, no.
Don - run well tomorrow
Blisters - decent bike miles
SC / OH - more solid running, well done
what - nothing
why - at Olympic park, youngest swimming/running in school's biathlon. Decent swim, but let's just say she's ran better...
Food in Stratford and too tired by home time. Would only have been 30 mins easy anyway
last rest - today, if you can call it that
last hard - wednesday
lyric - sound familiar

OH/LmH - I find battenburg, like maltloaf, is best eaten alone.
Emz - enjoy the wedding.
RFJ - good luck to jnr, tell him he'll have to get used to joe public assuming he's a corrupt, millionaire money grabber, guilty of ruining the country. Although in reality a majority of high street bankers earn less than public sector workers...

What - easy few miles
Why - long running at the weekend (including a race) and giving the legs a few easy days.
Long jump coaching last night for the little people. I succumbed to temptation and  practiced a few triple jumps beforehand: there is the first vets meet in 2 weeks (thats my excuse). Did about a mile of running (4 laps w/u / c/d). Is that a rest day?
Last rest - see above
last hard - Wednesday
lyric - hmm maybe

have a lovely weekend

Jeremy Clarkson is sacked!

Posted: 26/03/2015 at 13:23

I don't think the beeb had any choice.
Personally I find Clarkson amusing , ditto the programme. 
I'll be interested to see the outcome of the full investigation (possible police charges, assault etc.) It must've been a seriously bad split lip to warrant A&E treatment, no wonder hospitals are over stretched.

wet here too, early April showers
what - easy miles / rest (coaching the little people).
Double again yesterday: 4.5 miles steady at lunchtime with some work pals then at the track last night killing an hour while youngest had swim/gym. 4 miles on track at steady pace (8.04/8.05/8.03/8.05), then 4 miles on grass around the rugby/football pitches. Legs feeling it today , hence the "what"
last rest - weeks
last hard - yesterday was a clenched teeth session.

Very bright, but a bit chilly this morning.
I like 'miles make smiles' scans better than 'miles make me grimace'
What - easy run at lunchtime, may add some more miles tonight if the legs cooperate.
Why -  double yesterday: 40 mins easy at lunchtime, the evening club set was 5 x 0.4 mile steady/hard uphill, relaxed but steady run back down. 4 miles of quality work, uphills in 2.55/3.03/2.54/2.55/2.56 downhills in 2.40/2.30/2.30/2.31/2.14, 1.5 mile w/u & c/d. More a steady rise than a steep slope, but enough to raise the HR!
Surprisingly not too mangled this morning...
last rest - weeks
last hard - yesterday
