Who else gets up at stupid O clock to run ??



  • morning all

    I think we had the wild weather in the night. But I decided to enjoy the last possible lie-in of the half term and stayed in bed instead of doing the run I had planned!

    Gobi - where are you driving the steam train?? Are you doing a tour of the country?

  • Cycle ride yesterday - just over 30 miles - with my son. Good NW too, with 2 buzzards, 6 alpacas, 1 deer, 15 ducks (crossing the road!) and a sad looking horse!

    Walked this morning and got soaked but should be drier conditions for a run this afternoon.

  • Wasn't going to run but couldn't resist, a lovely 6 miles in the drizzle. NW 10 cows PW 1 OR 4. Forgot to report my DW from Friday, a rat.

  • Froxfield steam railway

    I do get around a bit

    training wise a rest day
  • Morning all - 4.5 miles and core work this morning, spin tonight. Walked out into a huge downpour and nearly went back in again, nothing to see out there this morning. Gobi, different way to spend a birthday. 5.30 and Emmy, well done on the double, nice to see you both on Sat in the sunshine.

    Morning all,

    Kate - werent you doing Stevenage as well? Lovely to see you on saturday.

    Lovely to see 5.30 both days.

    Stevenage is a place that i will not be going back to in a hurry image Horrid race - very boring.

    Gobi - What's a rest day for you?

    I had a lie in until 7am this morning but managed 5 miles and a lovely run. A bit windy but a good stretch of the legs. Feel almost back to normal!

  • Emmy you are a machine.

  • E mmyE mmy ✭✭✭

    I think it depends on the run. I was utterly battered after Beachy/Stort. Now its just a slight ache. I'm trying to see if I get some cross training in this evening to help loosen the legs a little.

    Maths - how is life back at work?

  • swimming is a good loosener.... 

  • Morning you lot

    Night shifts recently as work is kicking in with Post Office in the run up to Christmas.

    psc: I swim like a brick

  • NW from earlier. 1 owl, 1cat, 2 dogs, 2 cyclists, 1 Kingsmill Van

    MIss B saw her first Christmas lights up already (eh ?) in a house !image

    Morning all image

    A NOC for me.... a bit annoyed as i wanted to go longer but ran out of time image

    Birky - i'm the same as you - i swim to stop myself from drowningimage

    NW: lots of dogs, few birds.

  • Belated Happy Birthday Gobiimage

    Morning emmy; Another non(ish) swimmer then !

  • E mmyE mmy ✭✭✭

    Birky - i'd love to do a triathlon and have looked into swimming lessons but its something that i'd need a lot of time to focus on.

    I did a sprint tri a few years ago and was overtaken by children on the swim image

  • emmy: I respect those of all levels and all ages who do Triathlons.

  • E mmyE mmy ✭✭✭

    Birky - dont worry.. i took them down on the BIKE imageimage

  • ok, swimming like a brick probably isn't going to help much!  

    Another long day done and nearly dusted.... I need to step away from the laptop.

  • evening all

    noc for me today, just felt like lying in bed this morning

    being back at work is ok, but have been doing tests for most of today which is a bit boring and means I now have loads of marking!

  • Morning all - turbo this morning, so everything watch zero as I had the lights off in the garage to try and keep the sweat levels down. Didn't work. Track last night, 5 x 4 mins, 5 x 30 secs, definitely a chill in the air.

  • E mmy - a rest day is total and utter rest so I did no training at all and ate too much.

    12 miles at 8.xx this morning was a pleasant jog with 3 friends. All done before 0700.
  • Emmy, kids are the worst, they tend to be naturally good at things so I'm glad you won!

  • E mmyE mmy ✭✭✭

    Gobi - That's a good sign of a rest day!

    Kate - I made it my personal challenge to take them downimage

    A chill to the air this morning. Definitely getting colder over here. Boyska on the other hand loved it image

    What a morning! Absolutely glorious run in the woods and saw not 1 but 2 birds of prey fly right over my head. Absolutely astounding to see such beautiful creatures so close.

    10k for me with boyska. 5c out there so a little nippy

    NW: 2 amazing birds of prey, 1 heron, flock of swans (are they a flock?), 1 dog not under control, 4 dogs under control.

  • Morning all - run, spin and swim, 0 degrees, full winter kit, glorious now. 6 mile run and hour and a half swim last night, so tonight off to drink wine as I'm feeling tired. Have a good day all.
