we're gonna have a celebration
NZC - Well done on the 5km
WL - Aaaaaahhh the confdence of work colleagues,
What: 6 milesWhy: easy dayLast Hard: tuesdayLyrics: we all need it once in a while, glad to say i have one as of now
TmR: I find running long runs on consecutive days far harder than just keeping going, as soon as I stop and rest, back muscles etc start to stiffen up and running it off hurts. Still haven't decided 100% to do both marathons, but its sitting there in the back of my mind and after all I don't expect to race two off road marathons with a combined ascent of somewhere in the region of 10,000 feet!
LMH: two days off should do your back the world of good.
what: Iftar challenge 5K tonight at 1815.................. should be around 40C !Why: Have run it for years, I won the M50 class last year.Last Hard: Will be tonightlast Rest: Yesterday and I feel a lot better for it, I have to remember that as I get older I can't handle two consecutive hard days.
have a great day
Morning,Easy lyric, meant to say I knew yesterday's too, despite his political leanings, quite like some of Billy Bragg's stuff. DD - have a good race, speaking of which, belated congrats to NZC on your 5k improvement this week..Postie - will let you know re Abingdon in the next day or so, nee to check dates with family plans etc etcSports news - double didn't come in, but the profit on the aussies covered my costs. Yet what price on a resounding England win Run wise - 7 miles , middle 5 at tempo later todayHave a good news
Did know yesterday's lyrics and suspect I might know today's.
I'm feeling very few effects now from sunday. Slightly stiff legs perhaps but other than that I seem OK and even qujite full of beans. But perhaps that's an effect of 2 weeks off work rather than the maraton
Good luck tonight DD.
I decided that this week would be about running how I feel, just going out there and letting my legs decide what to do. This morning they wanted to go fast (by my standards that is) and so I let them. Hard work but it felt good. Add to that the fact that I love running at this time of year - lovely and cool in the mornings but still light enough and I get to see the sun rise over misty fields. I was steaming gently in the cool as I stretched this morning! So
What: 4 miles at a fair lick for meWhy: becauseLast hard: the last hill today Last rest: tuesday
Off out on a work do tonight - a team drink and meal. Would rather not but need to be seen to be contributing to team cohesion and team spirit what with being a 'senior manager' and all that. Blurrrgghhhhh.
have a good day all.
Awoken at 0430hrs by our young visitor who gets up early anyway but is on Danish time too!
What: rest/socialising.Why: back/visitors.Last hard: can't remember.Last rest: 2/9
40 - I shall try to articulate better in future
DD - good luck!
Lyrics - yes (thank you Pammie).
rest day here. yes, gobi, I can confirm that the evenings are getting cooler too.
I find the advert flickering at the top of the page (my mind runs one way, my body another) bewildering: do other people also have problems with their legs going in the wrong direction?
Optimistic about tomorrow. Next stressy day shouldn't be until Monday.
Enjoy the weather out there.
GOBI:What lights are you using on your bike, I'm think of doing some road cycling this winter and need some advice on lights. Cheers.
Why: Lovely morning for it, so be a pity to waste it
Gobi: I was passed by a police car on my run this morning and it scared the life out of me ! Agree it does looksl like you're on a training streak again, old habits and all that !!
Anyone know if Berlin has mile and/or km markers?
Have a good one!
Betting. I can't bring myself to bet against England ... Mrs SGQ would probably divorce me if I bet against the cricket team, anyway, despite it being a way to make money. I managed to lose both bets on the football last night. Mind you, I don't suppose anyone bet on 5-1 (I had a couple of quid on 2-1). And it was the first time I've almost wanted Frank Lampard to miss a penalty, as it wasn't him I bet on to score first!
What: 6M with middle 4M at tempo paceWhy: just over 2 weeks to Macclesfield Half MarathonLast hard: todayLast rest: yesterday
I like DDs time-shifting definition of "last hard" - have you been watching Timecrimes (probably the most logically consistent time travel film, but still makes your head ache)?
Mava - enjoy the night
DD - Best of luck in 5K (although youve probably run it by now!!
AF - Savage stuff - I'd be fairly sure Berlin will be Km only markers. European Super State!!!.
Me - 6 miles D&D, maybe similar later - I'm feelin a bit tired but I'll probably give it a lash as rest day tomorrow - I'll see how i feel - (ended up doin 16 last night)
35th out of 199, 3rd MV50 out of 23
1K 3-55 Down hill2K 4-06 undulating3K 4-25 Up hill4K 4-24 Mostly up hill5K 4-02 Down hill
For a total of 20-52 in 38C ! just 0ver 200 feet of climbing. Still my second fastest ever 5K. sub 20 has to be possible on a cool day on a flat course.
Pammie: What on earth were you doing up at 03:35?
Hope your 5k went well DD.
Gobi: LOL on the Astra, nutters...
AF: Wicked sharpener dude....
Another glorious day in the NW. Following the Mava training schedule myself and going as the mood takes me. Today, along the canal towards Liverpool, 9 miles averaging 8mph.
Off up Rivington tomorrow to check out the 1/2M course.
Enjoy your evenings....
Tectona - hope the speedwork went well.
AF - mate - you're flying! K markers are great - they come so much faster!
Dubai Dave - congrats on a great race - nice time in that heat! Did you get anything for 3rd V50?
What - same as last Thursday night - night orienteering - 1 hour - get as many controls as you can. As I'm half blind and cannot orienteer to save myself even in the daylight, have been tracking my son! A great workout - bit like fartlek really, with someone else calling the shots. Lots of fun, but not when the battery of your torch runs out and you are trying to hang on to your son when he is running hard downhill which happened last week!
Good running everyone.
DD very well done
What - 13m at MP +30-45 secsWhy - nearing the end of mara trgLast hard - TodayishLast Rest - Tues
