What - LSRWhy - Seemed a good idea at the timeLast Hard - A long long time ago Last Rest - Yesterday
Should have been "ever CLOSE your eyes"
JH: Good luck today
What: 13 miles d & d with the dawn patrolWhy: I lead the club run, have to goLast Hard: Today it was hot and humid, akin to breathing pea soupLast rest: yesterday
Have a great weekend
Good luck to the racers , good runs everyone.
TmR - but I can't eat the cakes...............
Joe - dread to think how long your long run will be.
DD - wish my training for the day was over, definitely lacking enthusiasm for it at the minute.
Gobi - good luck at Hillingdon, I'm assuming you're not racing this morning?
What: 1hour bike/2 hour run brick.Why: schedule.Last hard: 25/8.Last rest: 28/8.
I've been decorating which has given me a very stiff and sore lower back, this has been joined by DOMS in my quads from the fell race so I'm not sure how I'm actually going to get on the bike but I will do my best and see what happens.
Hopefully Paddy. I know someplace that will be showing it. It's just a case of if I can find the time.
Dustin - just a suggestion, but how about longer reps/fartlek (on the road - more appropriate to mara training all around) on Tuesday - during lunchtime say, and then you'd have the time for the Thurs session?
In Ireland (and most of Europe I believe) it is the baccalaureate which is supposed to be more consistent and more rounded. Though as I took that I would say that of course
Had to pick Jr up from nursery early yesterday as he was unwell. Ended up having to call the docs and the poor mite has been diagnosed as having swine flu Explains why he was awake so much the previous few nights as he was obviously coming down with the start of it. Anyway, with Mrs TT being pregnant I couldn't leave her to look after him in this state, so no run this morning, and if he doesn't improve dramatically as the day goes on, then no Pewsey HM tomorrow either.
What: supposed to be 18m easy, but more likely 9-10m easy if Jr sleeps this afternoon, otherwise nought.Why: see above.Last hard: trying to fit into a toddler's bed to hold his hand / ended up sleeping on the floor alongside him - heartbreaking to see him so upset Last rest: ?Lyrics: actually sound familiar.
Oh, and before I forget, the husband of a work colleague cannot do Abingdon now, so if anybody wants a number, let me know asap.
Fingers crossed for an improvement and I'll get to see some of ye at Pewsey tomorrow. Given my propensity to catch everything Jr brings home though the opposite is likely....... C'est la vie.
Have a great day all!!!
TT - sorry about the woe - hopefully everyone ok soon!
LMH - what part of Derbys???
Alehouse - Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do could have been anything . Look, i know about garden furniture too - i havent had a chance to use mine for 3 years - try Irish weather!!!.
Cant stay long - Talk later
Todays lyrics - It was written for me (and i think this one has Alehouse type Lyrics towards the end).
TT - sorry to hear about TT Jnr, I do hope he has a mild dose and is back to normal very quickly. Also hope that Mrs TT doesn't come down with it.
Tec - well done, those runs make the other ones feel even better.
Paddy - Southern Derbyshire, bordering Notts and Leics. I quite often do three (four if you count Rutland) counties in one bike ride.
Where's Pammie? I want to know how she did at LFOTM.
Tec - fantastic stuff. If you can do 10 in those kind of circumstances you'll breeze through the same again and more when you're not stopping every few minutes. Well done!
Was wondering the same about Pammie, LMH.
TT jr seems to be responding very well to the medication so far, so fingers crossed we caught it early enough. Think if he gets a good night tonight Pewsey may still be on, but no decision til I see how he is tomorrow am.
A 'what' update: Fitted in 12m in 76mins - 2 slow miles and then a surprisingly, verrrrrrry comfortable last 10m in 62:11. Rain never made the threatened appearance and sun was out in all it's glory. Sweet
Glad you're ok Pammie - good luck for Monday then!
TT - good news all round.
Hope Jr TT is OK and continues to get better.
NHTT for me this morning, felt not too bad, but not up for it... so started slower than usual.... then seemed to push on..... result a 6th fastest 5k out of 45 done in 18:16 and 7th so very hapy with that, would be great if hat could be transfered to tomorrows 1/2 at Pewsey.
3.8m of warm up and down to clear 200m for the month so far.
Take care all
TT - hope the little one recovers quickly
Tectona - well done on the milestone
What: 5.5M recoveryWhy: tempo yesterday and long run tomorrow - need a rest of some kind!Last hard: yesterdayLast rest: Thursday
Have a good long weekend (those who don't have to work on Monday).
Hello allDespite the appalling wind yesterday I did rather well with the bike challenge. Loop approx 28 miles. Hoped to achieve an average speed of 16.7mph. 2384ft (I think from memory) of climbing with one long stonker of an up at Gunnislake. After that hill we hit the most atrocious headwind. It was very grim. So delighted with an average of 17.4mph. Will have another go when it is less windy and maybe do it a bit faster. So yesterday 28 miles hard on bike.
Today - 50 miles bike. Haven't checked stats yet but pretty easy ride overall with just a few fast bits thrown in on a particularly nice stetch of road Tomorrow easy bike and then Monday 100 mile bike as I have 100 mile sportive coming up and - well - I happen to like the bike. Did I mention I like the bike.
Scooby - yes, it certainly looks like you like the bike
Tipp Top - really sorry to hear about Jnr TT. Hope Mrs TT keeps well.
Pammie - hope everything gets sorted quickly.
RFJ - good 5k.
Joe Hawk - is that another ultra you've got planned? Good luck.
Tectona - that sounded tough - well done.
What: No get up and go, so just did about 5 miles - maybe try long run tomorrow - that is today for me.
Good running everyone.
Well, did my 10k in 35:47. Absolutely delighted with that as its a big PB. I'm a slight bit suspicious that the course may have been a little bit short though. Nevertheless 36:19 was my previous best (10 years ago). Considering i wasnt targetting it i am delighted with the run. Garmin measured it slightly short though. Not enough to lose PB as i know the run was probably worth about 36 mins. Still, the record shows 35:47 and that'll do for now.
A nice bite and few jars later!!
TT - Hopefully good news on little TT. If you do the HM tomorrow good luck with it!!.
oh, LMH, of course I knew that from our previous discussion. Sorry .. But having reminded myself what fun those events are*, I've entered one next Sat. (won't do my T&F running the following day much good though, but hopefully won't affect the discus).
* and thinking maybe it would have been fun to do JH's event. I hope he's enjoying it right now
TT hope junior is feeling a bit better and that Mrs TT doesn't catch it. Good luck if you do get to race tomorrow
Tectona, RFJ well done
PM2, great and significant PB
What: 6ml inc 2 x 1ml @ 1/2MPWhy: meant to do 4 reps, and another run after, but felt quite tired so gave in to body
Excellent stuff Paddy. That's a great time and a great milestone to break.
Good luck for Monday Pammie.
Is it today JH is doing Ridgeway? Now that is a LSR!!!
Cheers for all the comments. TT Jr was better during the day, but really dipped again as the evening wore on. Will wait and see how he is overnight.
Hello again, My mojo seems to be returning so I thought I'd return (again) to the dttLMH: I'm rather jealous as Pilsley is one of my favourite fell races, and I forgot it was this thursday If you're in derbyshire, have you done any of David's fell races? hereTectona: well done on the 10Scooby: glad you're enjoying the bikeGobi: sounds good
What: 21.7m / 3500 ft
why: windy LSRlast hard: the brutal headwind todaylast rest: 45 days
Well given that I'm posting now and its only just gone midnight , today did not go well.
Basically my stomach was all over the shop from early on , so I dropped out at Goring.

Might give a better report tomorrow but at the moment I'm a bit p*ssed off and am going to bed.
