Good Afternoon L&G
Gee whizz, it doesn't get any easier. Just like Emmy four marathons in 9 days. That's bloody hard work for me. Emmy is just far too cheerful and fast for my liking....
A20 marathon this Sunday...no.45 of 2014.
Gobi, yesterday was #70, I'm seven behind Emmy and shedloads ahead of Kate! I met Kate at my third when she was a vet of 30 of the darn things....
5.30: Fast and cheerful? did you hear the swearing that I shouted at you on my last lap? I did enjoy abusing you as you came in for the bell though!
and dont worry - the pictures of your workout on saturday will stay on facebook
Í'm on a break until dymchurch so you'll have time to regain some positions on me!
The holy trinity for me tonight, run, swim and spin. This is the thing 530, I've joined PSC and Chris on the dark side with triathlon so - *whisper it* I've pretty much stopped counting my marathon numbers. Emmy, sounds like you will be fully rested up to abuse 5.30 at Dymchurch. I saw Stefan at cross country yesterday and asked him what he would do when he hit the hundred, he looked a little bit lost, then the cheeky sausage took me down in the finishing chute.
Morning you lot
Off out with Geordie in a minute.
Morning all - turbo and swim for me, track later. I'm embarking on a running training plan from a 1986 book by an American Scientist, looks like hard work, and they are amusingly just discovering heart rate monitors, lots of pics of men with big hair looking at big watches.
Tough track session with Farnham Tri Club last night... Yasso 800s which I'd not heard of before! Feeling a bit sore this morning so will bike and swim later.
Agree about the cost of Triathlons/duathlons.
Gobi - ooh - sounds interesting! A good stalker? (a.k.a friendly and not creepy)?
Kate - Youve done what?!?
Another rest day as my knee is still a little sore. BF turned around this morning and said; you really must be sore if you're not going out this morning!
Oh, last post disappeared. Gobi, did an ironman last year and apart from the price loved it, and enjoying the challenge of trying to improve three mediocre sports. One stalker two forums, or two stalkers? Emmy, wow, you are being sensible. Chris, yes, they do hurt a bit don't they.
Booked tickets for January's International Indoor athletics in Glasgow for Miss B and myself.
Kate: All the best with your Tri training.
Emmy and 530 - well done for the weekend. Emmy - take care of that knee
gobi - stalkers are not nice, there was a creepy bloke stalking me at one point and occasionally made a nasty comment. Hopefully has disappeared into the ether
not done much for a couple of days as I have been a bit snowed under with marking, but going out for a run in a bit just to get some air although evening running round the streets is so annoying, all those cars and people!
I am actually pretty rubbish at swimming biking and running, but I seem to get away with it, enter events, complete them in a ridiculously long time and no-one minds actually, I have always been within the cutoffs so not a problem, I just wish I could finish quicker so I don't end up with ridiculously sized t-shirts and have more of the day left!
Gobi - yes it was Yasso 800s, same as you described.
morning you lot
Off out for a 35 min plod.
Morning all - turbo again as was track last night, 2 x 800, 1 x 1600, 2 x 800. MC, I know what you mean about having more of your day if I was quicker, I like my marathons to start as early as possible in the morning so I don't miss out on lunch. Happy hump day all.
Tri club swim swim session last night. 2.6K pyramid - 100m up to 500m and back again. Chucking it down outside now and stormy weather forecast for the next few days.
NW from earlier. 1 owl, 1 white cat, 1dog ,1 cyclist
Good sessions going on at the moment.
3hr 35 marathon if the theory holds true!
30k this morning. So windy, but the sun came out with a couple of miles to go which was awesome. Legs were still battered after last Thursday's marathon, so combined with the wind, it was pretty tough.
Charles - did you seriously just say 30k in the morning after last thursdays' marathon?.... that's awesome!
a little stretch of the legs. Just 7k but felt great to be out there.
Charles; You ran 30k after a marathon only last Thursday ?!
er yeah, pretty daft Last week got up, had a drink and ran out the door (5:10am) and grabbed a PB (3:14), but was only running at 95% of target pace (no water, 2 gels), so the "Am I able to walk down stairs normally" test suggested I only needed a couple of days off (I took 3). Today's run was very sedate in comparison (140bpm). Aiming for sub3hrs very soon.
Charles - you legend!
Charles - well done!
nice slow 4 miles this morning for me - good to be back out at soc
