Moraghan Training - Stevie G

Evening all. Some cracking racing and training going on.

I've marshalled at Bracknell HM last year and after the big start, it rapidly becomes a pavement job. That said I did stand in the way of some cars and shout at pedestrians getting in the way.

I've been out of it with family, work, etc. Currently in Helsinki where despite being sunny, tomorrow morning's run will be a freezing affair. Shame I only packed summer kit.

What I'd give for a 79s 400m!

Cheers SG. Much like SG I am sat in a towel typing this. Spent the afternoon MTBing with colleagues in Wales and now in a hotel in Cardiff looking forward to re-hydrating.

Sounds like an expensive day PMJ. In a similar but cheaper vein I am now liable to replace two inner tubes. That's 3 in total this week.

90 minutes in the sun this morning on the bike, followed by a 3km brick run at steady pace (HM apparently) around one of the lakes. Cycled to a local country park and dumped the bike in the car that the Mrs had parked.

Vast amount of people and dogs wandering around not looking where they were going. 3km came out at 4:10/km average and I felt like I could have gone a hell of a lot harder. Speed is returning at last.

Spent the rest of the day with the family at the park and had a picnic. Back to work tomorrow morning then a trip to Bike Park Wales in the afternoon.

I caught the sun today. The only positive to come out of this is I had my hair cut yesterday so no embarrassing tan lines.

Looking forward to F-Off.

Well run Mrs PP (and PP!).

It's a cracking day here, 1hr easy run on my normal loop, but reverse direction. I should have headed off road given the opportunity.

Nice view Bus.

Good 10kming AG, and good parkrunning SS & SC.

Sounds like a nice route Bus and good LFR Johnas.

Piriformis? Roll the glutes on a roller first then dig deep with a tennis or hockey ball. Put ankle of RH leg on knee of LH leg and work the RH piriformis. Swap over.

Debut 25mile TT today on the A4 at Newbury. Within the first couple of KM I could hear some odd noises from the back of the bike, and a lot of bouncing. By the time I'd got to 18km it was getting worse and looking down showed the back tyre was a little squishy, so pulled over in to a lay-by to check. DNF

Good race PMJ. I saw the course route on Strava, other than the beginning loops & laps it seems like a nice one.

Pretty tired here, maybe should have given it another day. So rest again tomorrow and then out on the bike on Chocolate Egg day.

I had to look back for Dean's comments, but found and re-read them.

I did the same the other week SG on some 400s and paid for it at the end. Was aiming for 91s and did the first in 85, though I think that showed my lack of recent track pacing.

I've been told to 'run in to' the reps in the past.

~50mins out running with the kids and Mrs. Never work with children or animals. Coughed up all sorts on the run.

Sounds like a TT. Some warm up on the road, others use a turbo or rollers to warmup.

Blimey Simon! 

Good decision Dachs. 

Aiming to head out for an easy hour later to see how things are. Sore throat has gone  so most of the remnants are in the head. Taking it easy in the hope of being able to do a 25mi TT on Monday.
