Why: Habit, but a new circuit. Yeah I said a new circuit...
Yesterdays lyrics: Duran Duran and 'Girls on Film
Nah just up early. I used to start work at 7am and be at work to run with a mate at 6am. Habit.
Should have got those lyrics yesterday birkmyre.
Glad you and the bike weren't too badly damaged chickadeee.
What: nothingWhy: illLast hard: being sensibleLast rest: 28/4
Lyrics - yes.
Have given myself a good talking too. Sure I could go and do something, an easy swim, a short gentle run or half an hour on the mtb but what would I gain? Very little other than scratching the OCD itch and risking being more ill or for longer so three rest days for me and hope to be better by the weekend.
What: 7.3 miles yesterday eveningWhy: After pulling in favours I have a guranteed place in next years VLM be that through the ballot or as a golden bond runner for the national osteoporosis socitey. Time to get serious!!Last hard: Monday. Me and intervals share a love/hate relationship!Last easy: Today. Due a rest, although may still go to the gym for some core exercises.
Lyrics: Of course.
What: core later
Why: no more running till Monday for me.
Feeling properly "injured" now. I'm 99% sure it's all in the mind, nerves and all that. Doesn't help that last time I looked at the weather for Belfast on Monday it said "light snow"!!! It's May!
Chicka how are you feeling?
LMH sensible! Better to not train now than have to have longer off later
Very sleepy at the moment, lots of stresses on top of mara (Dad remarrying next week, giving in my notice today to go to unemployment in a different country!).
Have a good day all.
Stickless - so true, my head knows that rest is the right thing and it's definitely what I would advise anyone else to do so why do I always feel as though I'm wimping out?
Wow emzap - the move seems to have come round very quickly and that is a lot to have going on at once. You've done the work for the marathon, chill Just make sure you take a throwaway top and a bin bag for the start and maybe some gloves that you can wear at least until you warm up.
Joe - it's a little early to start your VLM build! Lots of golden bond places going nearer the time so don't feel too pressured.
Thanks for all the concern, guys. I'm ok - and the bike is too. Ran today and forgot I was injured, so definitely on the mend. It just looks ugly but that's what trousers are for LMH: sorry to read you are still feeling rough. I guess the marathon took quite a chunk out of you. Time to rest up and recover properly. Emzap: you have a lot on your plate at the mo. I'm sure the pains and niggles are in the head though. Tapir madness . Where are you moving to in Germany? I'm sure you won't be unemployed very long. There's huge demand in qualified personnel. what: some reps at 5k pacewhy: racing on Sunday and trying to teach my legs what it will feel likelast hard: the tarmac that I hit on Mondaylyrics: think so!BTW, what happened to the old forum layout? This speech bubble thing sucks and my forum pic makes me suddenly look about 2 ft shorter and 6 stone heavier ...
This new forum thing is weird, must have changed today as looked normal this morning!
Chick I may have to pick your brains, am I right in thinking you're a Brit living in Germany? I'm having some issues getting my head around the renting system! Glad you are feeling better.
Don't like it - why do they have to keep changing things?
It's awful isn't it!
What: Just 3 miles with Mae.
Love the new format. Not. Seems pointless to have changed anything.
What: a walkWhy: all I can do.
I think there are a couple amongst us who have forgotten that they have recently run a marathon and that may just have taken a little bit out of them.
Emzap: rest! (I think Chick is a native German...that's why she writes better English than the rest of us.)
Lyrics: am sure I should...so that's a no.
Despite my semi-retirement am now fully booked up with work until the end of the month, plus exam marking, and then have three days a week minimum until the end of July. Fortunately that fits in with my training (i.e. I am not running at present) although it does hamper my cricket watching opportunities.
lost a post
Chickadee have to read back but hope you are ok Having fallen myself know it hurts
LMH Hope you are feeling better soo
What: 6.3 miles/10 miles cycleWhy Head scalping sort off A No 6Last Hard: i picked a longer route home up the longest hill i could ever pickLyrics No
