What: swim then runWhy: the sun is shining and it's SaturdayLast hard: TuesdayLast rest Tuesday!
Ale How was the ale?
Alehouse - I was good until the last half mile and only did 6 miles instead of the whole hour I had allowed myself . Is 300m what the consultant advised or should you be waiting until you've seen the physio?
Straycelt - is that the Raceway one?
Hope it's as mild and still for you as it is here OH.
Sweep - I held off and was pleased to see that birkmyre had once again risen to the challenge this morning.
Two weeks on, and the motivation is returning. Just had a nice 40 minute run. Not too fast, but including a 300 ft climb that's like running up a ladder (OK.. a bit of poetic licence... but you know what I mean)
Now to pay for it.... I have to take my wife shopping, and somehow drag my whinging elder daughter into the car, and round the high street.
What: 4 miles, as described
Why: Because I actually felt like it!
Last hard 28 Oct
Last easy An hour ago
Lyrics - No. (and I have to confess I thought yesterday's was It's a kind of Magic... so I got that wrong)
Have a great Saturday... good luck in any weekend races.
sweep have a lovely family day
rw, ' Because I actually felt like it!' perfect eh?
alehouse keep growing stronger!
rfj hope park run went well
straycelt welcome and while you tae kwan do, I shall tai chi!
what: tai chi, 5 mile club handicap this afternoon, xctry looking forward to it!
why: we are testing out the course for a league race
last hard: tuesday, boy I have rested up!
last easy: thursday was totally easy
have a a good day/races and so on all
LMH: consultant is quite happy for me to walk as long as it is not hurting and I am using a decent style. So...did 660 metres, and the only ill effect appears to be sore hips! Hope you blasted that last half mile!
I agree with the RW "why": because I felt like it!
Good news Alehouse. I did by my modest standards
Hope the shopping trip isn't too expensive RW!
Enjoy the x-country Wabo.
9º and sunny here (8º water)Just 4 miles post swim run todayWhy: That's when I met up with rest of JS group (reversing their course)
RW "drag my whinging elder daughter into the car, and round the high street"*Never* had a problem dragging any of my daughters to the high st!GGG nice to get the parkrun in (nearest would be Inverness for me )Alehouse - sounds promising
Lyrics? Hmm. Clearly I should know them, and I'll have to be put (down) out of my misery. Googled. Duh Slap head.
Tom, a great training session: finding out where the edge of the envelope lies!OH: I hope that you wrapped up well if you took to the water at 8 degrees.RW: Ah yes. Wales. Flat? At least the sheep are pretty.
Yesterday I spent all afternoon wearing compression socks. Today was bike ride day. 49 miles done. However, the quads were screaming at me whenever we got a reasonable hill, especially on the homeward leg. More compression socks this afternoon.
They must be long socks Blisters
afternoon all, (belated) welcome to stray! Firstly thanks for all your comments ahead of todays race...what : another hellrunner chalked off....slightly altered route, so more mud, more hills, more water but more fun! Ran with a pal and my brother somewhere further down the field, but nevertheless was probably the most enjoyable run I've done for a long while!Fortunately turning an ankle in an early pond took my mind off the achey hamstring..flared up a couple of times, but not to the point where I thought about calling it a day. Couple of bottlenecks at some of the steep slopes but part an parcel of this type of thing. Never really felt out of my comfort zone, hence it being more a really fun run rather than a race with some excellent camaraderie.I think i've managed to get most of the mud out of most places, but it usually takes 2 or 3 showers. The socks, vest and shorts now in the bin.why - hmm, yes why?last hard - warming my hands and feet uplast rest - thursdayHope Goodwood went well RFJ (I assume thats your xc?)lyric - dont think so...have a lovely evening
Well done Dustin
A good day at the office for me,
a suprising 2nd at Andover parkrun in 19:30, in boggy conditions, just getting ready for the afternoons ventures at the XC
As Dustin says was the Hants XC lge (in Sussex - bizarely 3 out of the 5 races are outside the county, with Dorset and Wilts for other races) A good warm up and a bit achy from the morning, but off we went, aim was to run hard and not die.... did not get overtaken at all, but made my way through all aided with Jnr shouting me on... had 2 team mates on shoulder for 1st lap and a bit then was able to put the foot down and pull away, finishing in 113th place, 18 better than last XC, but alson a 13 sec PB on this course which is longer han last time I ran it by .02m... very happy overall.
Jrn didn't do parkrun so he could clock 17:40 for 4.8K to finish 28th in the U17 race.
Good day al round
What: lacrosse matchWhy: part of the game planLast hard: that was pretty knackering, I see it as good speed work for 1.5 hours!Lyrics: I'm on a roll!
Ale Yay OH 8C water?! You're mad!Hello Stray
Have a good one allDustin and RFJ well done
