Morning
Well done rfj and mava yesterday.
What: 5 ish with 3x800m thrown in.
Why: have to get the legs turning over
Last hard: bits of that though it was quite beautiful with the steam rising off the athletics track.
Lyrics: nope
Dibs yes from backpack. Very odd and still quite bad.
Have a good one all

Morning

What: rest (again)
Why: wounds on back too bad to risk infection by running
Last hard: removing the dressings from them yesterday
Lyrics: nope

Mava, have fun at the Folkestone 10.  We used to have a holiday flat down there and you'll run pretty much right past it.
Manically tidying as visitors arrive soon for the weekend.
Have a good one all.

Afternoon

What: rest
Why: spots on back where backpack rubbed are too sore to have clothes on them when sitting, let alone when running
Last hard: Monday I guess
Lyrics: nope

Chicka, in case you have a very early flight and no more internet before Monday.  Good luck.  Will be thinking about you.

Warm here today, almost 20C I think

EVening all

What: jog too and from the station to work and back (5ish miles in total)
Why: car in garage so had to take the train to work
Last hard: the blisters/sore I now have no my hip from my normally very good backpack
Last rest: yesterday
Lyrics: nope

Chicka you are going to be fine.  Positive thinking now, you have done the training and you will be amazing (easy to say when it's not you running I know, but we all believe you can do it )

Thinking of entering the tri world, there's a local one in August...

Have a good one all.

Morning, yes as soon as I posted I saw LMH had beaten me by 3 mins, but had to get to work!

What: gardening
Why: legs need a rest
Last hard: not falling asleep during my shoulder warming before the electropulse thingy
Last rest: Saturday

LMH yes shoulder still sore, though much better than 2 weeks ago.  Not sure if this treatment will help, but it's all they offered!

Dibs, personally I love visiting CT, but with the uncertain future, I wouldn't want to go and live there permanently.

How are the legs LMH and Postie?

Great report Postie.  Amazing that you can manage a course pb when you weren't feeling too prepared.

Have a good day all.

Run done.  Felt ok despite stiff legs from yesterday.  Have some electrotherapy on my shoulder later this afternoon, then yoga this evening.  Physio didn't even look at my shoulder when I went on Friday, just used some funny machine to see whether my back was curved in the right way.  Was a bit odd.

How are the stairs today LMH and Postie?

Dibs 5 weeks is not too long to go, and then you'll be hiking up Table Mountain (not on your own though!).  So jealous!

2014 in 2014???

443 km done.  Too many to go!  1571 the year Jesus College Oxford was founded.

Need to do about 6 km a day, but with a marathon looming, will concentrate on that once April is out of the way.

Well done Alehouse and NID for your running streaks.

Morning Postie and a huge well done for yesterday.  

LMH you really are amazing!  Well done for that, pushing through those last few miles when they feel like they're taking forever does need willpower!

What: gentle 5km or so with some harder bits in there at lunchtime
Why: I have the M word in 13 days and counting...
Last hard: yesterday's loss at our match.  We were meant to win, but played dreadfully!
Last easy: yesterday too.  I was running around like a lunatic, but didn't feel tired, guess the training has been going better than I thought.
Lyrics: I think so...but not sure

LMH only injury from yesterday was being stomped on with football boots!  Foot is a bit sore today, but runnable on.

Dibs, I've lost track, are you all finished now?

Chicka, when are you off to the US?

Have a good one all.
