What: 13.5 km this morning, another 9 km at lunch, then leaving on a jet plane
Why: signed up to the 3 day race next weekend, so getting miles in.  Going to England tonight.  Going to Cambridge tomorrow for the first time in 2 years, then to Edgbaston...if we're still playing by then.
Last hard: stretching :S
Lyrics; nope

Have a good one all.

What: 9km done this morning, followed by 1.5 hours gardening and now baking (with the gardening produce)
Why: too much to do, too little time!
Last hard: baking, it's hot in the kitchen!
Lyrics: Nope

Happy birthday RFJ.
OH glad you are feeling on the up

Am stretching lots.  No stiffness on walking this morning, felt it a bit when running, but now it's ok again.

Decided to do the 3 day 54km in 2 weeks.  Just need to sign up.  Agh!

I think it's called work/run balance LMH :P

OH you're allowed to swim so soon after surgery?  I'd have thought you had to keep the wound dry (not questioning you, just surprised).  Good that you can do something though.

I have found another stage race, in 2 weeks.  Longest stage is 30km so I could manage it.  I'm mighty tempted...

What: day off therefore gardenin
Why: I'm tired and needed a day off!
Last hard: after my 22km yesterday
Lyrics: nope

So yesterday I heard that my contract is being reduced to 80%, working Mon-Thurs from October, with home office on Thursday.  Am very happy as this will reduce my commute by about 5 hours a week.

Did 22km yesterday.  Ran non-stop for the first 18, then walked a few 100m to fuel, than ran the last 4 again.  Felt good, but ran out of water, so the last few kms were HARD!

Bit of achillies stiffness this morning, but think I need to up the stretching.

Have a good one all.

LMH that's a good idea re the long runs.  I know I can do 35 km, it's just after my accident I need to sleep a lot after them and then the whole day is gone before I know it.  I will try and build up a bit, see how it goes and then sign up.  Before the accident I wasn't at all worried about marathon training, but now, I feel there's a barrier there (partly because I know my leg won't hold up so will have to walk sections, which I don't like having to do)


What: well hopefully the Altstadtlauf (5.3 km I think)
Why: it's once a year
Last hard: getting a place in it...well it will be hard, I missed the preregistration so have to try and register later...
Lyrics: nope

OH hope you are home today.  Is your temperature down?  
LMH yay on the dentist, I hope the hospital visit goes well.

Have a good day all

Hello again.

762 km completed, 1253 km to go (not sure I can do this...)

In 1253 King Henry III of England meets with English nobles and church leaders to reaffirm the validity of the Magna Carta.

7.7 km a day to completion....53 km a week...better step it up a bit...
