Yesterdays lyrics: Don't stand so close to me.
Why: Nice sunny morning
Alex: I managed 30mins on bike yesterday
Catch up time soon
Have a good one.
Alex - you'll develop a love/hate relationship with it if my experience is anything to go by!
birkmyre - are you still decorating or back to work for a rest?
What: nothingWhy: jab today and coach says to take a rest day - he doesn't do this oftenLast hard: taking the rest day won't be easy"Last rest: 11/6
Lyrics - yes.
Internet was a no go yesterday did manage to get online a few times but couldn't stay online for long
Monday short of time and sodidn't get the chance to but Monday and Tuesday short 1½ miles in the heat but kept it short think this week will be an enforced taper for Saturday
Just back fromwork decided to run home noew i don't have to get up and run It was 1.7 miles but boy was it hard could feel it in my calves guess being on my feet for 10 hours don't help
What: 1.7 milesWhy: to escape the 31 degree heat later (Dubi Dave don't laugh)Last hard : that wasLyrics rings a bell
Morning LMH and Pammie
LMH: I'm at work. We got decorators in to do plastering.
Very sensible birkmyre!
Pammie - 31C? We're only forecast a high of 26C. It must have taken quite a lot of mental strength to run home after a night at work - well done you. Are you racing on Saturday?
morning allLondon expected in the 30s again today - certainly feels that waydid the 800 reps yesterday, baking hot still at 6:30pm , I have never sweated as much Got back in the car, said it was still 28deg...today - 7 miles steadywhy -miles miles milesnot sure I know the words either...
Blimey, it's hot! But I love summer Well done braving the heat Pammie and 7d. Although that sunstroke sounded horrendous! 15 miles in those temperatures if you are not used to it is bonkers! Glad you are feeling better alex, good to see you back.
emzap: good news from the fizz!Well, we did a lovely bike ride on the Baltic coastal path yesterday. It got very hot towards the end but we kept lathering on the sunscreen, so no damage done. A lovely sea swim as a reward at the end of the tour. Nice.Today:what: 14 miles medium long midweek runwhy: schedulelast hard: dragging myself out of bed at 5:30 on my hols to escape the worst of the heatlast rest: 17/7lyrics: noOnly a few more days and it's the Olympics !!
No sun here yet today...19.5 degrees the car says, and thick grey cloud which doesn't seem to want to shift.
What: a walk plus stretches
Dustin: thought of you yesterday evening when you were doing the 8s...rather you than me!Chick: medium long midweek runs seem to be a major building platform for a decent marathon.
oh gawd my feet are not touching the ground right now
hope you are all okay, warm wishes to you all anyway!
what: well I did something called exercise today 22.2 miles on my bike to work
why: Oh i so needed to
last hard: that but no
lasy easy: too many days but Cleo is so worth it!
ta ta all see you again when I can
Wabo: good to hear from you and that you are enjoying Cleo! How much longer are the "kids" over for?
Wabo - glad your loving the family time!Chicka - Olympics start today!! (girls football)
Ended up chosing the gardening option yesterday. Going to see the new Batman tonight Will just do core work and stretches. Tomorrow will be the trial run day.
7 days left at work...

What bailed after afew yardsWhy Just didn't feel rightLyrics yes
Will try an easy few miles tomorrow and then cycle to work. Was planning a cut back week anyway as I'm busy all weekend.
Nice result in the footie
Postie - Ah well, these things happen! At least it was in a cut back week!Pammie - My internet is playing up too...keeps dropping out and is very annoying! What do you have on this weekend?Wabo - Glad to see you are enjoying your visitors' time!!Chicka - Some good effort going in there!LMH - I'm back on the turbo tomorrow for a longer steady ride...will see if I start leaning towards the hate side!!
Swimming for me today...felt the best I ever have in the pool for the first 400m. Lost it a bit for some of the next 400m set, but got it back in the middle. Had a decent last 400m too but was getting a little tired then!! A really good 1200m done!
Evening all, sporadic internet here too. 7M in the evening (apparently it's easier when that hot yellow thing in the sky is lower) with the middle 4 at tempo. Felt very good.
Birkmyre: The Ghost Runner is a cracking book, inspirational stuff.
sevend: Cheers, been wanting to read it since it came out.
