Blimey Chickadeee - it's the weekend! Mind you - you've probably had a lie in

Good luck to those racing.
Gorgeous morning for a run. Fab sunshine but really heavy frost. As the sun warms everything up, things are steaming! And to make things even better I had a lie in this morning and didn't get up until (gasp) 7am!
I hit the submit button on my job application yesterday. It closes on Monday so I hope to hear if I get an interview next week. I will be very surprised if I don't get an interview.
What: 7.5 miles in a gentle plodding styleeeeWhy: it's a beautiful saturday morning just made for a runLast hard: wednesdayLast rest: 8 Jan
Have a good 'un
Thanks for the hair compliments, proposals/fights included AF - chuck in a fried egg, chilli sauce and chutney sandwich and I'll think about it.
Very true about things being put into perspective by events in Christchurch and Japan... sounds like a lovely service NZC.
Belated happy birthday to Mrs Paddy - although I read 'balloons' as 'baboons' and got a very strange mental image.
Fingers crossed Mava!
Well, yesterday's wedding went very well indeed. BF's mates are all lovely, and several are into Funeral For a Friend which is always a bonus! One is even going to the same gig as me next week. All in all it was a fab day. He gets to meet my side today - well, the Stoke part anyway. We're going up there later to celebrate my best friend's 30th.
What: 5 miles easy
Why: Back to schedule
Last hard: 13/03
Last rest: 17/03
Lyrics: Very familiar, but no
Good luck Gobi, Chickadee, ZaTTu, JEB and anyone else racing this weekend. Enjoy the sunshine!
What 21+ LSRWhy busy tomorrowLyrics No
Quite a pleasing run today. The first 15 miles seemed laboured burt having checked back through the splits come out at between 7 and 7:20 mm. Decided to try the last 6 at PMP which came out 10 sec faster at 6:40 mm
Having lost my way a bit for three weeks I am undecided whether to do one or two more 20+ runs before taper. This would be more to aid post run recoivery than anything else.
Good luck to all those racing and hope everyone enjoys the sunshine while it lasts!
Good luck with the job application mava.
Very nice long run Paddy. Likewise DD.
What: 5.2m easy.Why: Reading tomorrow *bounce* Last effort: Wednesday.Last rest: 27/2.Lyrics: nope.
Good luck to all racers and have a great weekend y'all
Good luck to all those racing.
Gobi - It's all about having fun and enjoying it, now if you can do that in the 100km!! If you just tell yourself it is just a number, I guess it will be alright
What: 14 miles - big hills, beautiful morning - great to be out there.
Good running everyone.
---@MadameONice highlights. I'd also ask you to marry me if it wheren't for your taste in music No, sadly I'm not training for a spring marathon. I didn't dare to sign up for one due to a surgery in november (removed some titan screws from my right ankle (who said you can't get hurt badly while running?))I'll try to run some marathon in the fall if I feel that I've got enough mile in my legs by then.@ZattuGood luck tomorrow. I hope both your wishes come true.@Dubai Dave22C and sun ... Want to switch location with me for a few weeks? @MavaGood luck with the application.---Myself?What: 120min (~6:40/m)Why: Weekly longLast hard: ThursdayLast rest: -Life Sucks... And Then You Die! Or well, at least it felt like that after a close relative first won a lot of money on Monday, and then died in cancer Wednesday morning. Hence recovery this week has been shitty. Started the day by taking my xc-skiis and go to a cabin a few miles away to eat lunch, so had to do the run late in the evening. Decided to go by effort instead of trying to hit a specific pace. Ended up with a 20s/m faster run then usual but still averaging under 70%mhr.Club was missing a runner to be able to compete as a team in an indoor track meet this Thursday, so I promised to run the 3k. Have never raced on track, so will probably go straight to hell (not sure if I should pick up a pair of spikes or just go with my normal trainers). Goal is to at least have one runner behind me I cross the finish line.
Oh, here's a picture of the lunch-spot:
p.s How the ... do I change my profile picture? Tried to upload it 3 times now (size is ok), but it won't change.
