Lyrics: I shall give up and go away again
What's the fitness test for Gobi?
Wabo - glad your run picked you up.
When do you find out about the super six thing Bridget?
What: maybe a very easy run?Why: think I may be up to it if I take it easy, will see after I've been to the dentist.Last hard: not doing anything this week has been very hard.Last rest: all week.
Lyrics - no.
ice and a light covering of snow here - it looks like someone has sprinkled icing sugar over the pavements
A bit slippery in places but by and large it was possible to avoid the black ice and stick to the crisp white stuff. I did get some odd looks from commuters though.
I'm in a right dither about whether to attempt to get to Bournemouth tomorrow. Forecasts have bad snow coming in from the west so I will have to drive right into it. And I've never run a marathon in a blizzard before
What: 4 miles slooowly on the iceWhy: not running is not an optionLast hard: saturdayLast rest: 6 April
Have a good day
Morning all. Rest day Friday here. I must admit sometimes to rest is hard but its one of my principles that seems to be working regarding ovrall progress.
Tipp - sorry about the bit of shitty news. As someone says above - do what you enjoy when you can!!.
Cold here but i'm hoping we will escape the worst of the snow here in our little corner!!.
What: 240 m pool, alternating front crawl and backstroke
Why: I still can't run but am trying to get back into exercise slowly
Last rest: Yesterday
Last hard: All this rest
Lyrics: No idea
Mava: Good luck in the marathon if you make it
Good luck to any other racers this weekend, though looking at the forecast, I wonder how many will actually happen!
Have a good day all
Don't think I'll read back since I last posted!
What: 5m easy
Why: I've been overdoing it.
Last rest: Sunday
Last hard: A while ago.
Hope the weather isn't interrupting training too much.
Nice to have you back Moraghan.
And talking of being back - 7 miles easy in the cold but gloriously sunny weather. Bliss.
Yesterdays lyrics: 'I want it all' by Queen.
What : Nothing.
Why; Got a sickness bug. 'No well, no well !'
Moraghan: Good to have you back posting mate.
Hi all -
Good to see you Moraghan - doing any cross country?
Birkmyre - get well soon ...
LMUH - glad you are feeling better
What - 75 min easy
Why - aerobic fitness
Lyrics - - no as per usual .......
Gobi - as an asthmatic I thank you.
Oh dear birkmyre - hope it's just a 24hr thing.
CB - I certainly did today having been denied for a whole five days!
Evening. Have to read back later as the husband is starving.
What: 1 mile easy, 2 miles tempo pace (9:00-9:15), 1 mile easy
Why: schedule says so, though it was was supposed to be 2-2-2 but, given the cold and snow, I figured 1-2-1 was just as good!
Last rest: yesterday
Last hard: tonight.
Brrrr it's freaking freezing!! Later!
My job is safe... and will continue as normal
Ran yesterday, but having a rest day today
15 miles in the biting cold, well it felt like it. My hands and feet were numb. Running with pins and needles in your toes is most strange.
Ran oop north again and it started to snow. came back down south for some respite but it snowed here too, knocking out my power and phone line so I lit a fire in the bedroom and curled up with the cats.
LMUH - glad that you are feeling better.RFJ - good news then.B - hope you feel better tomorrow.
Good news RFJ.
BMM - I am so liking the sound of 'lighting a fire in the bedroom' hope you're not too inconvenienced by the weather.
great news RFJ, specially just before christmas.
Hope you feel better soon Birkmyre. The girl who works for me has it.
my marathon is looking unlikely judging by the weather forecast, although I've still put together the stuff I'll need. Gutted I'll be to miss it. Plus I ate rather a lot of christmas type goodies today at work.
Of course, tomorrow I may feel different as I seem to have started sneezing and dripping from the nose
Bromley Parkrun isn't completely out of the question tomorrow if I can dig the car out and leave early enough. Getting over the North Downs might be tricky though.
