Right off to catch the bus so I can catch the train
agreed...bit grey...but jees did it rain yesterday!!! hope no one was stuck in down pour!
nice 6 miler for me getting back into it after achy legs, 3 foxes ( one of which i literally ran into...dont know who was more scared!), 2 cats, bats and birds..and few drunk people..!
Wet up here at stupid o'clock this morning.
Have also run early ,5amish, when down in London on courses with work. Always try to get a hotel near Hyde Park !
Dry, but drizzle came on when coming back in this morning
Actually really enjoy running round Hyde Park when down in London. Great on summers mornings
Gemma: I'll go round the opposite way the next time then. SoIt was you in the distance ! Can rest easy now knowing that
birkmyre- i saw someone else running today when was down near hyde- wondering whether it was you!!?? or if not its another nutty to add to this forum!
hyde park is great, only thing is the time thats i go in morning its not open to go inside so just means trotting round it, but peaceful all the same.
today nice 7 miles, feeling much better and gearing up for long run sunday
sorry your backs been playing up derekb, but good thats youre getting a rainy opportunity to rest youll be back soon!!!!
Gemma: Somebody else ! (I was only kidding, sorry ! )
Haven't been down in London for a while.
Sorry again Gemma ! said in his best Basil Fawlty voice...
Okay thats the humble apaologies / crawling over
haha....apology accepted!..and no crawling please, only running.
hope you have a lovely weekend x
Well I had the best intentions of running this morning but unfortunatley I didn't wake up untill 7.00am
Went to a colleages leaving drinks last night and a quick couple of beers turned into bit of a session. Got home later than I had intended and a little bit worse for wear. Normally this doesn't stop me running even if I only do a couple of miles, but I just sleeped through my alarm
Oh well off cycling all day tomorrow With a run up Boxhill after
yikes! if you slept through the alarm...you were probably pretty tired!! so maybe a good thing you did sleep in. enjoy session tomorrow. ive got club training then prepping for long run sunday....16 miler. hope the weather holds!
Wakened at usual time, got up, but legs felt really heavy, so went back to bed. Legs felt fine when I got up at 9am !
Weird or what
Enjoy your long 16miler Gemma.
totally not weird!- happened to me...got up felt really drowsy for like an hour! thought i was unwell and may go back to bed....half hour later fine! up out and running great. bit tired but ok...think its just stuffy/humidity of weather giving headaches..
but maybe your legs were bit sleepy...seems like they woke up eventually!
yes will need it for run...first long run of mara training so will hurt after like /forum/smilies/dont_tell_anyone_smiley.gif[/img]@!$]#@!$
bring on the ice baths!
errr what just happened to my post above?!!!!????? i didnt mean to write that!!!!
Dunno Gemma.I usually blame the computer...
Cheers for your advice re my heavy legs at stupid o clock.
More bramble picking done earlier for bramble jam, so brownie points gained
Rest day tomorrow and back to stupid oclock running on Monday.Eeven though I've got a day off work. I just prefer to get my routine going.
ha! unfortunately im the same...at barmey o'clock ive actually run into a tree...and im not just saying it! i did...and it hurt!! well at least it woke me up!
silly computer indeed! i totally agree with you about getting into routine..i think thats why i felt so sluggish this am...wrong hours.....its a shame because ill never really be able to manage past 10pm now! haha...but i dont mind.
i do like the sound of the bramble picking..you mean blackberries??? i used to spend most summers doing that when i lived out of london....i remember the thorns!
Think (sure) it's blackberries, we just call it bramble jam ! Got scrapes, stings etc as proof anyway. Typical guy kinda 'hero' thing !!
' Yeah right'...they'll say without a glance.
Didn't get up particularly early but went to Box Hill witha few other Pirates and did a lumpy 35 mile ride followed by a 5 mile run. Very hard days training.
Supposed to be doing 15 miles tomorrow but my legs feel abit shot so i will see how they feel in the morning
hope the legs were better today tommy.
did 20 miler today!!! yippeee me..! very proud of myself! lovely thames run...
im sure my legs will be hurting tomorrow though so maybe not slly oclock run.
tommy- pirates? box hill? must explain!!!
tommy - have you done any of the trionium events at box hill? i'm signed up for the knacker cracker on new year's day. i've done it every year for the last five years, also the mid-summer munroe and the unbelievably tough 'picnic marathon'!! trionium races
good effort gemma - gonna be doing a 19 miler myself next w/e. mostly on the basingstoke canal which is a tad less scenic than your thames run!!
haha...im sure the basinstoke canal has its interesting bits!!!
yeah next w/e is my 18 miler, then w/e after is half mara race. so hopefully i will be ok for next weekend and find another interesting route!
Hmm didn't do my 15 miles today legs felt really sore this morning so decided to have a rest day and just did a bit of spinning on the turbo.
Gemma Pirates Triathlets, if you look at the Triathlon section on this site you will find us as well.
Box Hill is in surrey sort of a cycling mecca of Surrey
Morning fellow 'stupid o clock' runners
Up and out at my usual time, despite having the day off work ! Anybody else do this, or is it just me ?
First day of my serious training block, so just wanted to start as I mean (hopefully) to go on. Wet, windy, but mildish up her in the West of Scotland.
Gemma: Well done on 20 miler. I need to build up my own long run.
morning birkmyre, i was up..but not out this morning! even though feeling actually ok, not achy muscles just sore knees...ish. i thought best to rest today anyway, dont want injury creeping up!
might just stick to some walking and core/ stretch work later on. hope the serious training starts well, for anything in particular?
i have 18 miler this weekend and in a wierd way really looknig forward to it! weekend after is lot less- half marathon comp.
hope youre having fun in scotty!
tommy- gotcha! yeah rang a bell! will check it out. sorry legs tired, sensible indeed to take a rest day, hey thats what im doing today! itll do you good!
ok, tommy had a read..so this skull and cross bones thing... is that why you have one on your forum name?
im getting there!x
