PLay my last April squash leage match last night and won! Think I'm finally getting to a point in the league where I beat some people and lose to others which is ideal.
Leg feeling quite sore after the bike knock last week so going to do a few days of low impact stuff to see if it helps.
I'm loving this 3 day week!
Have a good day all.
Last day at work today until 18th May
As some of you know I have had a track marathon in the diary for tomorrow. I did a little 3 mile test run this morning and it's no go. Shame. The day before Brighton I did a 3 miler and was pain free so I ran it. Today I was not pain free so I have informed the organisers I won't be turning up. Never mind.
NZC - have a storming race at Rotorua.

Have a good one!
What surfing the netWhy Avoiding my assignmentLyrics if only I was!
Will start running Tuesday after 2 weeks holiday from running.
Have been lurking on and off so: good luck, well done, commiserations and keep it up; as required whilst I stay in my self absorbed state for the next few days.
Completed 400m in the pool. Was going to do quite a lot more, but the water was so murky I couldn't even see the end when I was at the end! I thought it was safer to get out...
Chicka you should play squash again. I play against a huge range of people so I'm sure you'd be able to get back into it! It's great for fitness too.
Mava sorry to hear about the mara
NZC good luck for your mara.
Tom good news - hope the injuries stay away.
I'm off for a few days now to the New Forest/Aunt's birthday party. Have a good break all.
Got a bad desire.
What - 5k amble
Why - easy week (and I'm starting to feel better already)
Last hard - Saturday
Managed not to get an erection this week when I had my weekly massage. Result!
You are obviously having a very different sort of massage to me. Mine leaves me groaning but not in ecstasy! Not great news from the smt actually, appointment with fizz a week on Monday.
mava - sorry to hear about the DNS but sounds as though it was the only decision you could make.
Thanks for the good luck marathon wishes, I'm trying hard to keep the sniffles at bay.
Chickadee/Tom - "Llifetime of running in your legs" asset/problem - yes both are correct. Asset - if I pull my head in I should be able to get to the finish, - problem - they've been there many times before, only not very fast now
Am I excited? No - always think why am I doing this! Bit late now.
I like the training, but not this bit, the waiting, I enjoy the start, but not the middle bit, and I totally don't like the after effects, except for about 2 weeks after a marathon you seem to be able to fly, but only for a little bit.
AF - It's on Saturday - just one more sleep - oooooh!!
Tom - sounds like shortening the run yesterday was just what you needed so you got a good longer one in today. I think it's a bit like when you are able to do doubles, by adding in a short half hour run, it makes the longer one easier somehow.
What: 3 miles easy am Comedy festival pm - very good too.
Why: Just ticking over.
Good running everyone.
Mava - sorry you had to can your marathon, think you'll be happy you did so, now you have a chance to get on top of your injury, enjoy your new job, and come back fitter and faster!
Broadsword - you really sound like you enjoy your massage!
emzap - the conditions in the pool did not sound good. I tried squash many years ago, the only workout I got was in my bum muscles - from picking up the ball. I have no eye/ball co-ordination.
You an' me, we sweat an' strainBody all achin' and wracked wid painTote dat barge! Lift dat bale!Git a little drunk and ya lands in jailAh gits weary an' sick o' tryin'Ah'm tired o livin' an' skeered o' dyin'But ol' man riverHe jes' keeps rollin' along!
NZC: That's where you were going wrong. Your supposed to hit the ball with the raquet not pick it up with your bum.
best of luck on Saturday
