Mixed bag of conditions this morning - clear and mild up on the hill tops yet cold and misty down in the valleys. Pool swim later.
And for anyone with a spare hour or so this is worth a watch...
Adventure Show - Celt Man Tri
Ooh, just reminded me, I saw a mouse this morning.
Gobi - do you have a fever? Hope that this weekend goes well,
I'm looking forward to seeing 5.30 tomorrow morning and ive heard that he'll be in fancy dress again
Elected to have today as a rest day - so will do that session Saturday and then something longer Sunday and then a sleep in the cinema Sunday afternoon.
Woke up to a different world today, seems that I now live in a UKIP area. I have therefore declared our bungalow to be an independent nation.
Swam 2 miles this afternoon with my newly purchased waterproof mp3 player which cost just £25 on Amazon. Swimming's not boring anymore!
Dry, cold morning
NW: 1 owl, 1 cat, 1 cyclist who was going at quite a decent pace. 1 paper boy on his bike, 2 robin red breasts both singing away.
Grendel: Oh no, not another small area having an Independence referendum
Woke up at 4am yesterday (alarm is set for 5.15 - I leave for work at 6.30) and decided to run. Saw four people, a fox and a startled cat. The moon was bright and I could see stars, which is usually difficult in London. Ran 3.8 miles in 38 minutes which is fast for this old tortoise. That's probably the chocolate I ate the night before.
Morning all - 7 miles done now it on the bike. Catch up later.
6.5 muddy miles this morning and now off for a swim.
First ride with my new tri club, 50 miles, loved it, apart from the rainy downhills. Grendel, sounds like you've had the worst day. Out tonight for a clubmate's 50th birthday, expect the Harriers to be slow tomorrow Chris.
Kate: Sounds good ride.
Grendel:A good session today
Rest Day, but not long back having walked Geordie through thick fog !
Missed the XC race this morning due to a sudden attack of laziness!
Went out for 30 miles on the bike instead. NW 2 large birds of prey, 1 deer, several Alpacas. DW 1 hedgehog, 2 squirrels, 1 rabbit.
Wondered where you were Chris. I always recommend a 4 mile run for a hangover, I do not recommend a 5.13 mile XC race with an uphill finish. Yoga and swimming club to follow. Hope the marathons went well MC, Emmy and 5.30, enjoy the snooze Grendel.
Morning all - it's filthy out there. 6 miles and puddles up to my ankles PW 1. It's going to be a beautiful day walking around the streets of London with my broken brolly.
Morning you lot
Morning Gobi: Good call !
Cold and dry here today
NW: 1 owl, 2 dogs, 1 white cat, 2 robin red breasts, 2 cyclists.
Fowlmead on saturday was a tough day out. Was lovely to see 5.30
Eindhoven marathon yesterday and a good even paced effort.
Out this morning for a recovery jog and a little sore but apart from that OK.
NW Saturday: Lots of birds of prey that I couldnt recognise
NW Sunday: Drunk dutchmen
NW Today: flock of sheep, 2 dogs
Kate: Hope the streets of London aren't / weren't too wet.
The streets of Farnham have been wet all day!
no socs last week with one thing and another, but York marathon on Sunday - first 18 miles were in thick fog, then the sun came out and it felt much hotter than it was. Training hadn't been quite as good as it was for Llanelli earlier in the year so I was half an hour slower - but fun, well organised, just a shame York was so bloody difficult to get away from afterwards!! But that makes 2 marathon finishes this year which I am very happy about! Just a little bit stiff and tired today
Just need to get quicker!
Emmy - well done for your marathons at the weekend
