Need to catch up, busy yesterday all day
Why: Usual Thurs session
Yesterdays lyrics: '18 till I die;' by Bryan Adams
Have a good one.
Sounds as though you're back on track MadameO.
emzap - managed to miss your marathon news yesterday - which one?
What: swim am/threshold turbo pmWhy: sometimes I do ask myself thisLast hard: 22/1Last rest: 3/3
Lyrics - don't think they're what initially sprung to mind.
Pammie/LMH it's the Belfast marathon, 7th May. Anyone here doing it?
What: 8 miles
Why: With a friend who also signed up!
It's my review at work today. Fingers crossed for good news...
Very foggy here in SE Wales too!
Emzap - good luck with the review!
MadameO - I have only entered one of those races at the moment, but I think that the only one that may get knocked on the head is Liverpool on 1st July. So yes, a busy schedule but I'm one of those that needs something to focus on! And yes, loving being a dad!! 3rd time for me but Mrs AH's first. My elder 2 are 11 and 13 now, so it all feels very new again!
Good training all!
Paddy have you done Belfast before?
Good news re review. Promotion and perm contract
Good luck today Emzap!
Paddy - that would indeed be a doghouse double whammy if you were to disappear on Sunday!! Yes, it is the VLM I'm doing. G and I are going down early on Saturday morning to go to the expo, and staying for two nights - visiting my favourite dress shop on Monday to reward/commiserate myself, depending on race time Whereabouts are you staying?
As for the treadie, most runners I speak to are horrified that I do my speedwork on it, because it does the work for me in keeping the pace... which is true I suppose, but when I'm having difficulty maintaining a constant pace it can help to be forced into it by flashing red numbers and a moving belt. As I get fitter it'll help get me out of the rut I feel stuck in.
A more general observation, that sort of ties in - I've noticed that a lot of advice, whether running-related or other, tends to be very focused on 'ideal' scenarios. This is probably why a lot of people find it so hard to make positive changes; they don't feel in a position to do it completely, so they wait until they feel they can... and that time never comes. Over the last few months I've taken a more gradual approach to sorting my life out (training, finances, diet) and it's really helping.
What: 8-10 miles easy
Why: Midweek long run shifted over a bit
Last hard: Yesterday's session on the Treadmill of Doom
Last rest: Tuesday
Lyrics: No, but feel I should...
Have a good day everyone.

Therefore, today's update is
