Morning all - turbo this morning, run and swim tonight. Good luck PSC Van!
Picked up 3rd place in age category again at the Hart Road Runners XC, knocking just over a minute off last month's time. And my son came 2nd in the senior's race - 4th overall. So a good result for the O'Connors!
Track tonight with the Tri Club and maybe a cycle ride if I can fit one in sometime today.
Well, I'm definitely paying for that run. Definitely feel worse today! I felt fine during the run itself (other than getting tired, but that's nothing unusual).
Did about an hour of weights, nothing too intense, then spin, then a sports massage (calves were hideous!) and then an hour of yoga. A pretty intense Monday. My calves are really sore after the massage so I may not run tomorrow. I'll see how I feel when I wake up. My sleep's been rubbish as well, so that doesn't help does it?
well done to PSC, the O'Connors and Gobi!
Cal - maybe just rest till you are actually better?
feeling shattered, long day at work, and so declaring a rest day. All I had planned really was a spin class, and it is a fairly boring one, the instructor is always really late and she isn't much good! Early night required.
cracking sunrise as I drove East to work and sunset as I drove West home though
6 mile run and swim done. Swam 11K last week and really felt it tonight, a day off from the pool tomorrow. Racing snakes a go go here this weekend, well done all. Cal, I tend to exercise anyway if I'm feeling ill, generally doesn't make me feel worse and certainly makes me a lot less grumpy, but I am a bit of an idiot. The PSC mobile is on the road! The last two days have certainly felt like there has suddenly been a whole lot more daylight, still not dark at 5pm.
Morning you lot
No snow or ice here now
Lots to catch up on.
Cycled yesterday but got a puncture 8 miles in. Stupidly went out without repair kit or pump so had to walk to a bike shop which was closed so had to phone a friend for a lift home! Won't do that again!
Tri club track session last night.
Planning to fit a new inner tube and get out on the bike again today and then swimming with Farnham Tri tonight.
A warmer day here. How is everyone getting on?
My calves are killing me after that massage, so no run today. I'm also still sick. I just did Bikram, and did a lot better in the class than yesterday.
Three days of school left until half term. Really hope I shake this cold so I can use the week to concentrate on training!
nothing today - fighting the onset of a cold and hoping to overcome it!
Gobi - that is amazing pacing!
Kate - yes, the days are definitely getting longer. Sunrise when I leave for work now and it was still light when I got home today
Evening, turbo this morning and track tonight, 1 mile reps. Gobi, I dream of doing a mile at that pace.
Morning all - 5 miles trot done, nothing out there other than a postman with the most amazing flashing lights all over his bike and a shopping trolley in the middle of the pavement. Chris, have you now loaded up your bike with spare parts, no fun walking anywhere in cleats. PSC, skiing at half term maybe? Do you have your own watt bike Gobi, are they as good as they're advertised to be. Birky is clearly working hard at the moment. Emmy, you can't already be recovered from your Quad, particularly mentally after that many laps of that lake. Happy hump day all.
PSC - thank you
Kate - sounds like a good postie! No... todays run convinced me I had a two day relief and then the pain. 6 very slow and sore km this morning Heart rate peaked at 189 which is unheard of... so I decided to cut it short and relax a little today.
Gobi - I agree - it was lovely this morning!
Going to my big mates funeral today. He died at the end of last week. He was the same age as me. Makes you think.
Sorry to hear about your mate Birkey and it does, indeed, bring life into perspective.
2.3k in the pool last night. Hard session and feeling weary this morning. Have a meeting in London today so calling hump-day a rest day.
birky - sorry to hear about your mate, hope today went as well as it could
emmy - hope you are ok
I have been feeling crappy all week - sore throat and run down so have done nothing but work, and have had 2 parents evenings, so a heavy work week. Last day tomorrow then off to Spain for a week
emmy: Belated Happy Birthday
Still lots to catch up on
Was working yesterday and am again tomorrow and still have two assignments left !
maths: No probs, the funeral went as well as could have ben expected. It was just such a shock the big man going so suddenly !
Morning all - 6 miles done, raining out there, it's been a while since we've seen any of that. 1 OR. Sad news for you birky, I'm sure you gave him a good send off. Escaping the freezing temperatures, lucky you MC. Right then, time to get my Friday on.
Dull and cold here, Geordie 'needing' out so...
Morning kate; Yeah sad news indeed. The big man's funeral was 'very him' if you know what I mean.
maths: Enjoy your week in Spain.
Maths - Thanks. I'm fine now... a lovely 10k this morning. Enjoy Spain! and the rest! It sounds like an awful week to work when you're ill.
Birky - i'm sorry to hear about your loss. It does make mortality a lot closer.
Kate - please keep your rain It's lovely and sunny here!
