Firstly well done Chick, Dustin and WP (though Dustin, you did deserve a little time on the naughty step).
Happy anniversary RFJ.
OL great medal you made there!
Ale ouch, hope the aches go soon, be careful that you haven't done any wrist ligament damage if you fell onto outstretched wrists.
Pammie well done, keep going!
Blisters well done for saying no.  First steps.

What: nothing
Why: exhausted
Last hard: 28 hours of driving over the last 4 days.  Took us 9.5 hours to get back from Dunkirk yesterday rather than the normal 6.5.
Lyrics: nope

Managed my parkrun on Saturday in 27:30, was hoping for 25 when I arrived, but as soon as I started I realised the 20km at mp the day before plus the 9 hours of driving was never going to let me achieve that.

Taper is starting though, so starting to feel nervous...

Have a good one all.

Have a good one all

What: a run once I've packed, not sure how long as have a lot to do.  Then a rather lng drive
Why: We're coming to England
Last hard: driving may be...
Lyrics: I think so

LMH unfortunately we arrive in Dover at midnight tonight, then I'll be up for parkrun tomorrow, then to see my Dad, then to the wedding.  It's just over 3 hours of driving tomorrow.  I may get up a bit earlier for parkrun and go a bit further along the coast before it starts.  Basically in answer to your question, no I don't know when I'll fit it in!

Have tried all Garmin reset options and none work...grrr

((Blisters)) sometimes it's hard to break the habit.

Chick only a few days left now, you can do it (and if I don't pop in before, have fun on Sunday!!

Have a good one all, will check in if I can, otherwise, bis Montag!

What: 4.5 km at lunch meant to be gardening when I get home
Why: the sun was shining and it seemed rude not to make the most of it
last hard: sittign next to a very ill person at work, I find it quite inconsiderate to come in when you are so ill.
Lyrics: nope

LMH the half plan sounds good.
Oliver glad to hear the legs are ok.
Not sure when to try and fit my last long run in before Frankfurt (I mean 25-30 km).  At a wedding this weekend in the UK, so will be hard to fit it in.

Have a good one all.

Wow Oliver what a great report.  Sounds like you had a fantastic time even with the overenthusiastic start.  Congratulations!


Good long run yesterday OH

 Chick hope the calf is feeling better today.  When is Breman?

 Was in Berlin on Saturday and the weather was perfect.  It made me quite jealous seeing all the runners as I did my 10 km on Saturday morning around the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Tierpark etc.

 RFJ great report. Sounds like a nice course too.  Congratulations on finishing well within your goal time as well. 

 Wow LMH that is an unbelievable run!  I have done Jesus Green to Ely Cathedral before, but not back again.  It’s a lovely route.  You are really doing so well at the moment, again an inspiration!

 what: hopefully 5-10 km

why: all I’ll be able to fit in, my best friend is moving to Denmark tonight, so need to see him off properly!

last hard: tonight will be sad L
Lyrics: nope

 Garmin is also dead, which is a bit annoying.  I charged it, and as soon as I disconnected the charger, the screen went blank.  No idea what I can do about it either.

 Have a good day all.

Quick pop in now, sounds like I need to read back, but pushed for time right now.  Just wanted to report that I've signed up for Frankfurt marathon on 25th October (agh!).  

Been AWOL again, sorry, for some reason time is just running away from me at the moment.

Will comment more when I've had time to read back!

What: 5 km with 100m, 200m, 300m, 400m and 500 m at 5km pace thrown in
Why: I could run at lunch and I wanted to see how my leg reacts
Last hard: yesterday
Lyrics: nope

So my legs ache a lot today, but the pain has completely gone.  We'll see how they feel in a few hours.  I suspect the pain after yesterday's run was due to the offroadness and slipperiness of the run though.  I did today's on tarmac.

Well done OL for yesterday's race.

OH what's the Pentland Skyline?

Ale hope ear clears soon.

Have a good day all.
