Melli and Podro have gone?! Must be getting close. Just looked at the weather for Klaggy and it's sunshine on Saturday and overcast with showers on Sunday - so could be anything really.
Healing thoughts indeed to Tom, SiT and Poppy.
What: Maybe a run, maybe a swim.
Why: Ticking over.
Lyrics: I've sung the big "We're half way there" line of this in a few races, although not necessarily that tunefully.
WP - Sorry to hear things are not so good. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
birkmyre - Enjoy London!
What: 7 miles steady
Why: Nice miles
Enjoy the day
Not been able to get on for 2 weeks due to internet being down. Hope no one has any major woe's to report.
Strange to think I was racing round Ulley the day before the floods. Last Monday I should have been working nights in AE at northern general hospital and couldnt get in. In fact none of the night shift could get to work on that night. Sheffield was cut off.
Kept the training going though and ran Mansfield half on Sunday in 1.35.
Easy 9 yesterday and as legs are still a bit stiff today im planning on just doing an easy 7 as i want to race again tomorrow night.
Its nice to be greeted back with some lyrics I know Pammie.
Good Runnings everyone.
Easy Lyrics I know them
What: 5 miles AM with Rach
3.2 lunchtime easy
5 miles PM before club on the grass track EASY
Why: To give myself a chance ahead of Yateley but without compromising my 50km training I will run everything around 7.45-8.30 pace and tomorrow I will skip my morning run.
Last hard: Saturdays 10 mile race
Last rest: Thursday
What: Sports massage pm
Why: Sort out niggles in lower legs (& anything else she finds!)
Last hard: 2 days
Last rest: 1 day
Next race: 3 days
just popped home from hols (only 20 miles up the road) to pick up my turbo since it won't stop raining (of course now I am here it is bright sunshine outside in Plymouth and my bike is in Buckfast). I'll read back at the weekend but just wanted to say hi!
What: swim speed set totalling 2.6k; 2 hours 15 bike/25 mins run brick
Last hard: run yesterday - hilly at Buckfast!
Last rest: Tues
Good runnings all.
Matt the Brum

Why: Limited time, reminants of cold.
Last Hard: Yesterday
Last Rest: 3 days
A rare second post, but as its now tamping down with rain outside I feel justified in being a tad smug for having got my run done so early this morning. Here's to a day in the warm, but lets hope its not raining in London so there can be some tennis on!
Quick post, as pretty busy here (no change there!)
Good to see you back WP - hope the injury/swelling improves soon.
SAmTheMan - It's not raining here atm, although very grey overhead.
Right, got to dash...
What: 8 Miles w/4 miles at LT pace
Why: Improve my LT
Last Hard: Sunday
Last Rest: Yesterday
Lyrics: Yup, and now it'll be in my head the whole day!
FINgers - its now dry and sunny here, I think showers are the order of the day. Nevertheless glad I am done and dusted as I don't have to go through the old rain dodging saga. Right also about the lyrics, brought back many 'happy' memories of my time in Durham Uni, and my old room-mate who had this album - we played throughout our first year together, mostly full blast
what: 8k inc 6k tempo - and the first time i've ever run with venom (obviously an easy run for him!)
why: 5k / 10k training
WP - sorry to hear more bad news for you - get yourself well soon.
even i know the lyrics today!
Lyrics - like thanks, I'll have these in my head all day now. Bl**dy awful record...
what: half hour easy
why: post 'man-flu' recovery run
Looks like we may have some sun in the City today....
how is the road back ??
I've met the band with today's lyrics. I joined part of the European tour in 2002 i think, and did photography (still and video), interviewed the band and spent a day with the keyboard player in Vienna. Good times. Always been a fan, but...the new album is enormously forgettable. Shame.
Bring back the 80s, I say. When women were women, and so were the men....
Sam...not that I wish to rub it in, but the sky is blue over Wiltshire today!
The house in Aldershot was not nice. We're asking for a different one.
What: 5 mile run d&d, 1 hr on my new bike later
Have a great day people.
d'oh! at least its dry and sunny here at mo, just seen weather forecast though, may not last!
Matt the Brum
Gobi- Being very careful as leg is still not 100%. Great to be back out there. Don't think I've lost too much endurance, but will take a while before the speed comes back.
Either Ive just had one of SAMS london downpours or one of mine is london bound towards SAM as I type this! Horrid day outside once again, and last night down the gym got talking to a couple of bodybuilders who reckoned it was due to rain everyday in July save the 15th! Not sure if they were serious or not, but im beginning to believe them at this rate!
am: 5-miles easy/steady already done, legs very stiff from squats in gym last night, no doms though YET! My legs did not want to go at 7mm pace, but I persisted and made them! lol. So quiet pleased with pace, 35mins and in some windy weather as well.
pm: Club Open meeting practice night, down to race the 2000m and then form part of a team for a 2000m relay/parlay! think its 3x200m I will end up doing!
Glad to hear that things are improving Matt.
Rain alert in Berkshire. I am going running so it will rain in 10 mins
Holly - I'd like to do an IM, but I'm a very very bad swimmer, so I'd be unlikely to get as far as the bike stage! May take lessons later this year to see if it is fixable.
WP - get well soon
What: Easy 6 miles
Why: Ticking over
Last Hard: Saturday
have a great day
Trinni...I'm a very bad swimmer too. Thats no excuse.
I just went out on my NEW BIKE for an hour ish and its FANTASTIC!! Oh what a difference a bike that FITS makes, rather than one someone was kind enough to lend you!! The one I was borrowing was too big, and now that I have my own that fits, I can go much faster and feel more comfortable.
And it just rocks. Cos its mine!!!!!!
Stranded in Turkey
Quick update on my side. No running since last Monday as left leg still sore. Saw doctor yesterday and thinkgs likely stress fracture so bone scan tomorrow. Difficult to be positive but if confirmed only sthg like 3 weeks to go before I can run again and start the preparations for stress fracture number 8!
