Why: Ran it today rather than tomorrow, So I dion't have stiff calves for Friday mornings (5am start) drive up to Ullapool.

LMH: Good running. It is great when that happens.

Catch up again.

Back later.



  • morning all, bit fresher this morning - colder and darker all the way to work
    what - 5-6 steady at lunchtime, hopefully a LmH type run, although legs dont feel that way now..
    why - midweek effort (sort of)

    lyric - not as yet...

  • Morning:

    Yesterday's lyrics were: "A spoonful of sugar (makes the medicinego down)", Julie Andrews on Mary Poppins.

    What: QofP later

    Last hard: fai;ling to fit into a pair of trousers a few minutes ago.

    Lyrics: no

    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success
  • Morning.

    Oh dear Blisters - hope you can sort it without too much trouble.

    Neither did mine when I set off yesterday Dustin, I thought I was going to have to nurse them round.

    What's happening at Ullapool birkmyre?

    Your new club really seems to suit you Tom.

    I'm dreading trying to manage my weight if ever I can't exercise Alehouse.

    What:         short, easy swim
    Why:          resting the legs
    Last hard:   it's on its way
    Last rest:    14/9

    Lyrics - no.

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

    Blisters: Hope your IT department are good

    Tom: The light brightens, good to see you on the way back

    LMH: Runs like that are wonderful, I've had a few of my own lately as I get fitter and the weight drops off.

    AleH: I would be enormous if I didn't exercise.

    AF: Swimming will happen, it just does. I  will never be a good swimmer but I can come out of the water mid pack now. If I can get there from my near drowning experiences so can you. 

    What: Cycled 25 miles pre dawn as fast as I could, Intervals 5 x 5mins off 2 min recoveries tonight.
    Why: 10K specific training, the cycle was for fun!
    Last hard: That bike ride
    Last Rest: 19/8

    My new bike has Ultegra Di2, electronic gear shifting is awesome!

    Lyrics: Not a clue


  • Blisters - had a couple of friends have that same Trojan, hope you can get rid!

    Rest today, hilly 10M with club last night. The run was called 'three hills'. They weren't joking.

    Lyrics: nein.

  • Morning

    Blimey it's cold this morning! Having to de-ice the car is never fun before morning commute.

    Didn't end up doing a run yesterday evening. Gave me groin a bit more of a rest and the fact I have a race just around the corner means I gave in to advice on not pushing it!

    Back to it today though...
    What: 6+ miles this evening at slowish pace
    Why: Don't want to agrivate the groin by going to quick
    Last hard: Sunday
    Last rest: yesterday

    Lyircs: Nope.

    Blisters.. if you haven't already fixed it...  start up in safe mode, then do a system restore to a point before the virus took hold.  On my PC safe mode is enabled by pressing 'F8' as the PC is whirring into life.  Good luck with it.
