Morning - nothing for me this morning, osteo diagnosed a torn quad muscle last night so just had a spin and swim to take it easy, run later..... Morning PSC.
Kate - bad luck on your torn quad muscle. What's the recovery/prognosis.
Morning you lot
30mins Steady off road earlier with Geordie
NW: 18 -20 cows, I ain't counting them every morning
2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 squrrels , 2 other runners and 3 cyclists. Today I noticed lots of Blubells in the hedgerows
Was finishing cleaning my car when I got a text asking me to work yesterday.
Kate: Oh no re your torn quad,
The advice was 'don't set any world records' so I should be OK!
Gobi: It's now very wet here in the West of Scotland
Just off out. Wet here too.
Morning all - chucking it down here too birky.
A really dreich start to the weekend. I'm working today from 10am.
NW: 3 dogs, 3 beer kegs, lots of bluebells in the hedgerows and fields,
kate - think this is the first time I have known you to have an injury! Sounds painful, take it easy. Hope it isn't going to mess up your racing plans
wet here too, and as I have swimming later, rather than get cold on the bike I am going to turbo before swimming club. Might get out for a run later this afternoon, rain or not!
didn't get time to post yesterday (damn work getting in the way!) but did a gym session. Thursday was the first swim for 2 weeks, loved it but couldn't get to sleep afterwards mind you, that could have been work hassles rather than swimming
Good morning all
Damp under foot but the sun has been trying to shine all morning.
10 miles this morning including Park Run
Kate I hear Mo Farah has breathed a sigh of relief that you have been told to lay off the world records take it easy hope you recover soon.
Gobi, You may start at the front of park runs but I bet you don't stop dead after 1/2 a mile because your tired. I have never started on the front row maybe I will if I ever get under 20 minutes but I would feel like I could be blocking a a faster runner.
I'm not calling it an injury yet, just a niggle, 6 miles this morning, slow but it didn't make me cry which is an improvement on yesterday. Was supposed to being doing a duathlon tomorrow but as I'm not allowed to break the world record I'm going to leave it. Valis, it's amazing how quickly the mud has come back, I've had to get the very dirty shoes back out of the garage again. Bike or turbo and swimming this afternoon after I have finished the bliss of my domestic chores.
+1 with Gobi... I've struggled for years with the same injury, now that it's fixed I am enjoying going out there.
20 miles done on the bike in cold sunshine! Odd weather we are having at the moment!
Tidy time there Gobi.
I shall try and heed the advice from the experienced here. Light cycle and even lighter swim!
Kate - might be worth using a pull buoy when you are swimming - or if you are OW in a wetsuit just don't use your legs - depends how good you are at using your glutes for the kick though - I know I am rubbish
Sunny here now
Valis: Big game tomorrow and Wed for the Blues.
Catch up time
Indeed BIrky I can tell from the look on mrsV's face she is looking forward to it too or at least I pretend she is
valis:Go on Blues.
Valis, you poor deluded soul. MC still too cold for me OW, tried to do some speed stuff but aborted as it pulled a bit but will try the buoy.
Moring you lot
Rest Day but out with Geordie
didn't get up for an early enough for an early bike session (feeling lazy) but have promised the kids to take them out on MTB anyway, so off with them in a bit which means a cafe stop....
Morning all - bit of a plod, which was fitting for a PW 1, OR 4 and NW a fox sitting right in the middle of the road. Swam too, have worked out that the tear has been caused by clipping in and out on my bike, so it's confined to the garage until next Monday, so of course the sun is shining today. Bit late but good luck today Emmy. Valis, I am going to be pulling out of the NDW50 so I am expecting a fast time from you without me to hold you up.
Sunny here now although it rained for most of my 20 miles this morning.
NW lots of ducks and swans and a couple of rabbits.
Maths, Enjoy your family mtb session.
Kate, But I have soul that's got to be a good thing.Mind that injury
Gobi Good time but you can't of stopped at every half mile mark and your never going to hold people up if win the thing Doh!
Must get a move on over to mother V's to do a couple of jobs and be back before the match.never any time to rest
kate - not sure exactly what you are doing when you are clipping in and out to cause a tear?
enjoyed a nice ride with the kids to a cafe where they had a piggy breakfast and I contained myself and had a bacon cob
we need to get a new saddle for the youngest boy's bike though, he has been complaining about it for ages and it ruins the ride for both me and him as I have to listen to him moaning about a sore bum after 5 minutes. To be fair to him it looks like a rubbish saddle, but a trawl of the internet doesn't bring much up for kids saddles and I am sure an adult one would be ridiculous on a kids bike - he is not quite 10!
anyway, not the 30 miles I should have been doing but a nice time nonetheless, and swimming tonight...
Now that was a good game ,I hope you enjoyed that BIrky it doesn't get much better than walking the ball in to the net
Just off out now for a session
valis: Oh yes what a game/result.
