What: squash later (if the squash courts are still there)
Why: it's the day
Last hard: staying upright, I think we have the edge of Imogen here
Lyrics: nope

LMH not gf, just fancied trying something different.  It's delicious by the way, would recommend.  Also incredibly quick and easy.

Have a good day all.

Sounds nice but am allergic to almonds so not one for me!  I did a banana one using chickpea flour (gram flour)...recipe here:


Let me know what you think.

Evening all.

Sorry I have been a bit rubbish at posting recently, so going to try and catch up now.

WP sounds like good progress on the knee front.  Hope it keeps improving

Don hope Aviemore was fun

Chick, nice pics!  By the way, did you think anymore about doing the Brueder Grimm Lauf? Am debating it this year as hoping to do the Saxon Shore Relay the weekend after and not sure if my legs will cope...

OL Congratualtions on your new PB, that's impressive!

LMH which ultra are you doing?

Sounds like you had a miserable day of weather in the UK yesterday.

So this week, after my Wednesday intervals, I did yoga on Thursday, hill session on Friday (10 min warm up, then a lamppost pyramid up the hill for 30 min, got to 9 lampposts before I had to start working my way down again.  Ended with 10 min cool down.  Yesterday did 3 hours of gardening (we had much nicer weather here!).

What: cake baking (gluten free, LMH I recommend it), 15 km run, then 1.5 hours of the weirdest yoga experience ever (there was live music and people were singing along, not my thing and actually felt quite uncomfortable).
Why: one needs cake in life, long run of the week and a friend persuaded me...
Last hard: not walking out of the yoga
Lyrics: nope

Trip to Down Under slowly taking shape...should actually book the New Zealand leg, it's not too long now!

Have a great Sunday evening all.

Hope all the ill ones feel better soon (Ale, Wabo, Hilly).

Hi Tom, long time no see!

IN the end ran for 1:35 instead of the intended 1:25.  Got horribly lost and ended up in a bog...it was great fun though even if I'm completely cream crackered now!

Phoned the company this morning, apparently all is good.

LMH off there for a month (though my go to NZ too).  OH has to work there for a while so going with him.  When is your injection?

Good morning

What: hopefully 1:25 later
Why: building my long runs up 5 min a week at the moment
Last hard: booking my flights to Australia and not knowing if the payment went through!
Lyrics: nope

Sounds like a tough bit of time juggling ahead Dibs.
Some good parkruns yesterday and some good xc too.

Have a good day all.

Well done to junior Dustin!

Just over 7km done, 6x 2.5 min hill repeats.  That was hard.

OL that race sounds fun

LMH nothing specific.  Just preparing myself for the possibility of doing the Brudder Grimm again so wanting to get hills in and slowly building up longer runs.

Lyrics: Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you,

Yesterday's were I should be so lucky by Kylie Minogue (are you suitably embarrassed for knowing them OL?!)

What: 50 min hills if I can find some clear ones
Why: Last thing on schedule for the week
Last hard: the snow

Have a good one all
