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

    Morning all (well.... kinda afternoon).

    Great run for me this morning and just managed to be quick enough to avoid the pack of dogs running around the quarry. Didn't really like being stopped by the police. They were in a van and stopped to ask if I had seen anyone suspicious whilst I was out. I explained where I had run and said - No... nothing and ran on. They wouldn't say why they asked either :/

    NW - 1 heron, some geese, 2 cows.

    Very cold out there. First frost of the year

    Kate - Can you take a pic? I miss tacky Christmas lights!

    Gobi - Why do you think that you were a mental mess after stopping the longer distances?


  • evening all

    Emmy - that is a bit worrying! 

    Christmas tree watch alreadyimage

    I stayed in bed this morning (well, only till 6) wanted to get out in between work and needing to cook, but got home really late and have too much to do. Ah well, today was a rest day then and tomorrow is another day

  • E mmy - life without 100 mile weeks and 4 hour runs was hard to take at first as it was what I had dedicated myself to. I had targets/desires/dreams and they all disappeared in a medical room with a picture and a sentence

    Somehow did 91 miles on the bike today :??)
  • Evening all - 7 miles and 3 x 6/5/400 in the rain, very bracing. Gobi, 91 miles in this shitty weather, respect/crazy. Emmy, I never take my phone out running but if I can take a pic without the owner thinking I love his house and putting up more lights even earlier next year I am on it.

  • Gobi, I'm sure you're right. I would love to have my gait analysed and do wonder what improvements I would see.
  • Morning all - just 4.5 miles as a mini taper for Saturday's marathon, swim tonight. NW 1 cat 1 dog and 1 OR. Emmy, I think you took PW a bit far yesterday, try not to look so suspicious this morning.

  • Morning you lot

    Just off out

    Morning Kate: All the best for your marathon

    Back later

  • Morning all. Day off work today. I fancy a bit more painting and decorating, image
  • Morning

    2.4k in the pool last night and cycling today (and possibly indoor rowing).

    Kate, did you get your injured achilles sorted out? Mine's still playing up but have a new regime from the physio..strengthening the calf rather than stretching, which seems to be the new thinking and, from what I've read, gets good results. Of course I'm told I should try to avoid running up hills but that's easier said than done around here!

    Thanks Kateimage I'll try to wear more dayglo next time!

    Gobi - I can imagine that its quite an adjustment.

    Changed my route this morning. It was warmer than the 0.5c we had yesterday *brrr*

    PSC - If you must continue to decorate - ive got two rooms hereimage

  • psc Did you say decorating  ? Lots done in this house in the last two years.

    35mns Steady. Dry and no wind  when out

    NW: 1 owl,  1 dog, 2 cats,  2 robin red breasts singing away on our fence and 1 cyclist

  • 35k done, last 5k at race pace. http://www.strava.com/activities/223336993 Back in time to walk my kids to school image Got some strange looks from all the dolled up mums - covered in mud, head buff, running tights and bright yellow adizero jacket image

    NW: 2 heron, 2 deer, 3 runners (what the.... never seen any runners on this course before), 4 cats, 1 fox, lots of cows.

    @Chris, have you tried eccentric heel raises/dips? Worked wonders on my achilles when it balled up (brought on my sudden increase in speedwork too soon after changing from heelstrike to forefoot).

  • Charles, another whopper for you. Chris, Prudential Health are truly crap so haven't been seen yet.

  • Morning Charles and Kate

    Foggy  and cold here now

    When Christmas shopping yesterday, in one of the shops we were in somebody put on 'Summer Holiday' amongst all the Christmas musicimage

    Charles - that's another cracker of a run!

    Birky - Christmas shopping already? Im amazed in NL that we don't even have Christmas decorations around yet

    Morning all,

    Eugh - this morning's run was awful. Out at 5 as normal and planned on an hour but it became apparent very quickly that I was struggling. Heart rate through the roof for an easy run so took it easy and ran just 45mins instead. Boyska loved it as it was raining and he could run through the puddles!

  • Morning all

    Nasty hill session last night left me with tired legs this morning. That said out just after 0500 and did 2hrs on the bike.

    All good really, just over 14hours of training in the last 4 days and there is more to come.
  • Morning you lot

    A foggy Friday here

    NW: 1 owl, 1 white cat, 1 cyclist.

    Coffee time

    Back later

  • Morning - just 4 miles 1 OR NW 1 fox and 2 men in long white coats standing at the side of the road, maybe they are coming for all of us.

  • E mmyE mmy ✭✭✭

    Morning all, I'm coming down with the lurge I think so walked the dog this morning and hoping to get out at lunch if I can!
