Gobi - Well done on the win!
I've come down with 'something'. I'm not sure what it is but I've got a headache and my eyes ache. I thought initially it was hayfever but it appears not to be. A hard run this morning
Beautiful weather all day, and track session almost all in the light. Look after yourself Emmy, the 100 is close.
Emmy - take care
lovely weather here, sat with the kids in the sunshine eating ice cream well, we had been swimming...
Good morning all
1.5 miles this morning quite warm out this morning.
Gobi, Well done on the win.
Kate, Already looking ahead to next year as I have had to cancel 3 ultras and a marthon this year.
Maths I am back to step one and a half.
Birky, Narrow indeed couldn't get tickets (so far my Nephew and I have only missed a hand full of games in all competitions) so Mrs V had to put up with my armchair management . Good win for Gers a pity about the dip after McCoist left.
Miss B has a new paper round at SOC
Cold and frosty one today here so far
Off to work soon
valis: Yeah good wins for both. Hopefully Gers financially are at last sorted. A couple of good wins seems to have given them confidence again.
Morning all - bike, core and swim, another beautiful day but cold start. Will see whether I can be sensible enough not to run later. SOC runs in the family then birky.
another beautiful day here
totally failed in my plan to get up early and get the kids out on the bikes - we needed to go early because my mum is taking them to the theatre later
I am tired and achy - did a 3k swim and then first time with the running club in almost a year yesterday! That was tough
One of the guys at the club has just done 24 marathons in 17 days - won 23 of them! and at the weekend is off to run John O'Groats to Lands End. Bloody amazing
Maths - that sounds a tough distance! How did you get on. Are you in the same club as Adam Holland? That's the only guy that I know that's done that recently!
Gobi - impressive standards!
We had a lot of fog here this morning. I went out (when I know I shouldn't have) and will not be a martyr tomorrow morning.... Paris is now looking like a non PB attempt
emmy - yes, I haven't been to the club for a while but have been following Adam via the club's facebook page. Get yourself better and enjoy for Paris! Is it this weekend?
1.5 miles done and rest day tomorrow as this running stuff does tire one out.
Morning you lot
Easy session. Dry, bit misty here. Okay though
Waken MIss B up now
NW: 1 owl, 1 fox, 1 cat, 1Kingsmill Van
Coffee time too
4 miles this morning, it is still a bit cold in the mornings but looks like we are going to have another beautiful day. I am trying to cut out the walk breaks so my legs are feeling a bit tired
1 OR 2 dog walkers
going to a spinning class while youngest is doing a water sports activity at the leisure centre, and swimming tonight
Blooming disappearing post. 6 miles, 2 OR, one with a very reluctant dog.
Beautiful weather this week, but due to the butt/ham thing I haven't done any running. Monday was spin and yoga (yoga was better than on Sunday and spin was tolerable), Tuesday just yoga, Wednesday spin and yoga plus some upper body weights and today was squats and yoga (squats and kettlebell swings were OK).
Saw my physio today - he's a runner too. He seemed to think there wasn't a major problem - just the fact my glutes are lazy and so my hams and calves are doing more work than they need to. He didn't think they had fully recovered from my half when I decided to do those sprints and therefore, trouble. He thinks I should be OK to do a short run tomorrow and then see how that goes. Fingers crossed (and lots of glute work. Again.)
Steady session done. Misty and dry here today
NW: 1 owl, 1 black and white cat, 1 dog, 1 cyclist, 1 Kingsmill Van
Coffee time next . A longer shift today working 8am till 9.30pm
Yeah Miss B is the other 'socer' in the family
Catch up now
Cracking sunrise here.
MissB is out with her papers.
Off to work in 15 minutes.
What am I doing wrong? I type an essay and it disappears!
another beautiful day here, but I took advantage of it being the last time I could have a lie-in, shame the kids were arguing loudly!
good luck on Sunday Gobi. PSC - are you doing it too?
I was hoping the kids would want me to take them out on their bikes, but they don't so I am having to do housework instead
Can't you make them? It's a lovely day!
I managed a 3.7 mile run. Ham and glute were achey but not as bad as Sunday. Still, quite concerned. Got a follow-up appointment with my physio on Thursday.
Also, 45 minute spin class. I'm just getting all my spins in while I'm still on Easter hols as I can only do one a week during term time.
I know Cal! They went out to the park for a bit and youngest has a friend coming round now so we didn't have much time anyway
2 miles this morning and it looks like its going to rain soon .
Today is bottling and brewing got a vanilla porter and a summer ale to bottle and I'm going to have a go at making Timothy Taylors Landlord.
Kate, Delete is just a few millimeters from enter on the keyboard
chucking it down here
spinning and swimming for me this morning
some interesting brews going on there valis!
Sun is out here now. Pouring earlier.
Catch up soon
Good weights session in the gym and then yoga for me today. Have some ankle pain but think it's more of a DOMS-type thing than anything serious. Still sore in the hamstring and glute. Ugh.
Bike complete with impossible to change puncture in the rain yesterday, then 12 sunny miles of trail running. NW dogs and magpies. Valis, how's the head this morning after the home brew? More biking, running and swimming today.
