Wednesday 8th August

Morning. Couldn't think of lyrics so held on but need to walk Grace now.

Lyrics - Nothing here to fear, I'm just sitting around being foolish

Alehouse - sounds great.

Wabo - are you going there or are they coming back over here? I know it doesn't feel like it at the moment but it will be February before you know it.

What:            either a swim or short, easy run later
Why:             may not have access to the pool!
Last hard:      20/7
Last rest:       30/7

Yesterday's lyrics - He Ain't Heavy (for the Brownlees)

If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Just walked into Olympic stadium. Looking straight down pole vault runway. Awesome!
    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success
  • Morning

    It's  warm and sunny here.

    ale: Go on dare you to have 'a wee run' down the pole vault runwayimage

    I would of course Birks but my Achilles is not up to it!
    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success

    afternoon all

    lmh, I will be going there, although there is talk of them going to USA for a year, which will be just fine by me, I will go there instead! Quicker easier, cheaper.

    Alehouse hope you are enjoying yourself!

    Oh they were fitting lyrics yesterday then lmh!

    What: swim later

    why: ran 3 days in the trot and now my swimming needs some attention!

    last hard: last night short run and circuits

    last easy: sat

    have a good day all

    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • What: 7 miles yesterday evening from London EC3 to Blackheath (usual route along the Thames Path around the Isle of Dogs and through the Greenwich Foot-Tunnel) – started slow and finished strong

    Why: Endurance building

    Last hard: Last night – running up Vanburgh hill

    Last rest: Sunday 04/ 08

     Rest day today (off to the Olympics this evening – quarter finals of men’s basketball) and most likely tomorrow (travelling on business) - looking forward to watching Mo going for gold in the 5k.

     Go Mo go!

  • Morning all, been offline for a bit. Still running, just busy with some things and fitting in 14 hours of Olympic TV in per day.

    WHAT: 8.5M hilly

    WHY: Building up half-mara training now

    LAST HARD: 15M on 4/8

    LAST REST: 6/8

    Been avoiding races. Alehouse: won't make next week's Sale 5k, am in Edinburgh.

    Brownlee was apparently only 1:20 behind Mo. And he wouldn't have come last in the men's 10000 image. How fast could he run without the swim/bike beforehand??

    what: 9 miles with strides
    why: basic speed
    last hard: getting up this morning!
    last rest: Monday
    lyrics: familiar, but no

  • He's probably like me chickadee and needs a good warm up image

    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • 8.4 miles run at a pleasant 7:48 m/m
    Excess holiday weight 3lb, which is approximately what I took with me.
    With a bit of luck I'm off for a swim now.
    Lyrics, no.

  • Evening

    ale: Fair enough, can't have you pulling up injuredimage

    Still loving all the Olympic coverage.image
