Todays lyrics are:We been broken down the lowest turn
What 4M Steady
Cold and almost frosty when out. Dry, no wind. Not bad running weather
Need to fully catch up and need some brekkie
Good to have you back birks.
Yesterday's lyrics were Why Worry by Dire Straits.
Blisters - that's great progress.
NZC - ah, that was what confused me. I'd love to go sub 3.40 but haven't had the best build up. Minimum target is another GFA time.
What: an hour easyWhy: listeningLast hard: none of it feels as easy as it shouldLast rest: 7/10
Lyrics - no.
Blisters: we all get a bit light headed after a long swim, its the change of orientation after having been lying down for a hour, good progress.
LMH: good to see you getting back on track
NZC: Hi there, still churning out the marathons
Tom: Hope your wrong and the physio is correct, but like you I have also suffered from misdiagnosis over the years and have become sceptical.
What: Cycled 40K in the fog, was scary especially given the way locals drive around here, intervals tonight.
Why: I ask myself this all the time but its a combination of keeping the cycling up so as to have a base to train for JOGLE and running cos I want to do my 10th Dubai marathon in January.
Last Hard: yesterdays long swim was an effort, same as Blisters 2.5K.
Last Rest: Two weeks, further rest is imminent.
Morning all, LmH - sounds like things taking a turn for the better?NZC - impressive marathon times. It took me until my 2nd marathon to go over 4hrs....Emz- yeah big hill at the start (& down to finish) and one big climb around 8miles Tom - do i detect a note of cynicism? Misdiagnosis I think is common with runners as a brief poll on here would confirm...still, good luck with the moves and stretchesSolid training elsewhere too..Me? no club last night but did steady run last night. Actually felt in reasonable shape after Sundays HM. 53:50 and mapped it online at 6.9miles, so all in all a decent pace for what was supposed to be a recovery...Today - 6mwhy - mileshave a great day
lyrics no, cold and almost frosty yes!
what: gym stuff after work and some tai chi
why: ran last night, trying still to gently build
last hard: sunday 5 mile hilly muddy race
last easy: monday
have a good day peeps
Good to see you Wabo and good to see you seem to be clear of the injury! I wish!!
Blisters: great swimming progress.DD: cycling in the fog sounds scary. Do they have wide roads or is more dodge-that-lorry stylee?Dustin: nice running so soon after racing.LMH: that's great news! Hope you have shaken the lurgy for good now. Re. the B12 stuff I have no idea what caused it and TBH, I never asked. I was just happy to have some pills that made me feel better . Mind you, it took about 8 weeks for them to have an effect.Tom: understand your scepticism. Too frequently we are given random exercises just because the physios are clueless. Sun is shining and I'm itching to go out for a run. My quads are still a bit sore though. Perhaps tomorrow ...
Give it another day chickadeee - you can always go for a walk.
Wabo - sounds as though you're on top of that calf which is good.
What time is your appointment tomorrow Alehouse?
It seems to be taking less time each run for my legs to feel like mine but of course I'm sure I've lost all my endurance.........
class is permanent, LMH. You may have lost a bit of speed but the endurance will still be there.
What 6.32Why and the taper continuesLyrics no
You'll be fine in a week LMH
Read back on your race report Chick gripping stuff.
New backpack seems ok but sits higher up so will take a bit of getting used to.
Nice sunny but cold day up here today.
New wetsuit has arrived.
Now I've got to try and pour myself into it.
Good news TomBirks, sounds like a nice runLMH, it's called torpor madness. It's like taper madness, which is when race day is rapidly approaching. It's not like tapir madness which is something to do with wearing hairy coats and eating ants.
What: nothing except workWhy: good questionLast Hard: The stone wall my car met today!Last rest: TodayLyrics: no
Came out from house visit today to discover my car bumped up against wall on other side of road than I'd parked it on - seemingly having forgotten to put the handbrake on (sufficiently) on a hill. Oh dearHad to get in through passenger door as driver's door wouldn't open. Fortunately appears only to be cosmetic damage to plastic bumper. The wall was unscathed. But not a good day!
Blisters - swimming wetsuit?LMH - sounds like you'll be fine just go and enjoy it (it's what you'd say to me...!)Dustin - nice recoveryWabo - glad to see running is returningDD cycling in fog can be "fun" AKA dangerous!
Lyrics - No
What - 6.25 along the thamesWhy - first run at work only 500m to thames in Reading....Last Hard - Last nightLast Rest - Fri
O.H. That's a salutory reminder. I've been awaiting the moment that I do the same because this car has an electric handbrake. I hate it.
Yes, I am now the proud owner of an Orca S4. None of my family has yet translated from the Latin (whale). I did pour myself into it, and then went to see the wife who was on the phone. She nearly swallowed it. Once she stopped crying and was able to speak she said that it didn't leave much to the imagination. It's true. My 6 pack needs a little development....
Orca - Or the species name for the killer whale
