Weather's been changeable all week and I've ended up feeling really rough and not training.
But I thought I'd kick the thread off.
Good running all.
Not much you can do about it if you don't feel well BSCDB - an explanation for your bad run maybe?
Stickless - have a good weekend.
birkmyre - as NZC said - hide your shoes - and anything else you can move. I've never had a dog chew like when I had a lab puppy.
mava - welcome back. Is your knee better or are you back to the physio. At least there's an end in sight at work.
emzap - hope the right thing comes along soon.
What: endurance swim/short, easy runWhy: scheduleLast hard: a whileLast rest: 25/4
Lyrics - no.
Cold this morning.
emzap - Very annoying about the job, hope something else comes along
NZC - I'm 37 but only started running last year so hoping there's still time for a bit of improvement
Stickless - Enjoy your weekend, sounds like fun
BCDB - Sounds sensible not to train if you've been feeling rough, hope next weeks better for you
What: 7 miles easy
Why: In training
Last Hard: Sunday
Last rest: Monday
OH dear BCDB you've ended my lyrics streak! Hope you feel a bit better soon, if you don't feel like training, don't overdo it.
Circuits this morning, fell off the step and have twisted my ankle. Icing as we speak! Hope it's ok for parkrun tomorrow!
Have a good day all, anyone racing this weekend?
TomI now think Hadd is a bit OTT, in that some anearobic work probably doesn't do much harm during base training. However, I will be doing some dedicated base training in the Autumn, as a conditioning phase before marathon training.
What: 3 loops of a hilly circuit d&dWhy: My hill running needs improvingLast hard: 2 daysLast rest: 1 dayLyrics: Not today
morning all, have to say thought it was lovely this morning, nice and bright walking to the station, even if its a bit early...What - 4 miles easyWhy - gentle day ahead of lsr tomorrowbirk - i really hope you were joking (with ref to the lyric) about a 500 mile round trip for a dog....but good luck !
bon weekends everyone
Bit of catching up for me after a nightmare couple of days... after Wednesday's meeting (which went ok) I was mentally knackered, and went to bed early after a nice run - only to be woken up at 3am by the blimming fire alarm in my building. For some reason it doesn't even make a ringing sound in my flat - just a noise like a very angry blender. The neighbour tried resetting it but that didn't work, and it took until 12pm for someone to come out and look at it... then I got home at 7ish and it was going AGAIN. Ahhrrgghh!! Fortunately it seems to be fixed now so fingers crossed.
Thanks for the music recommendations Tom - I do like the Editors (and indeed the 80s), and have an Interpol album somewhere that I never really tried, so will have to revisit. Bullet For My Valentine and Avenged Sevenfold are two more of my favourite bands - their stuff varies from a bit heavier/nu-metally to more classic rock with a touch of emo.
Exciting news about the puppy Birkmyre!! Yes, please post pics!
Hello Mava, and goodbye again for now... glad the holiday was good, and hope you manage to get back into it soon.
Glad you're seeing improvements JEB. Running with faster people is definitely the way to do it.
Hope the trotts have cleared up AF!
Sorry to hear about the job Emzap, that really sucks. Qualifications should open up opportunities, not restrict them, but sadly doesn't always work that way... still, you'll find something better I'm sure.
What: Time to face the Treadmill of Doom
Why: I need to
Last hard: They all are
Last rest: Tuesday
Lyrics: No. Typical - I knew all of the ones on days I'd missed!
Happy Friday everyone, hope the Crunchies were good.
Totally Knackered today, so no running....
Have brought tickets to see Adrian Edmundson and the bad Shepherds in November though (punk meets Folk....)
