Friday 21st December 2012

Morning from a wet West of Scotland.

Todays lyricsimageon't start me talking.I could talk all night

Yesterdays lyrics: Sloop John B by The Beach Boys.

What: 4 Easy Miles.

Why: Just a wee plod

Coffee calling

Back later.




  • Morning

    What 50 miles on the bike done

    Why: opportunity

    Last hard; that was it was quick

    Last rest 6/12
  • Morning.

    Blisters - training is over rated but fresh pasta stands you apart from other men.

    What's next for you race wise DD?

    Off darn sarf for pre-xmas socialising and present swapping this morning so exercise opportunities will be limited and the weather doesn't look conducive to running.

    What:               probably nothing.
    Why:                see above
    Last hard:        2/12
    Last rest:         14/12

    Lyrics - yes.

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

    happy friday everyone
    Ale- thats a real bummer, my thoughts are with you
    really mild darn sarf today LmH, didn't even need a coat walking to the station this morning
    what - 5 easy at lunchtime
    why - clear the head (again), fortunately yesterday was the last of the work related socials
    last rest - a week ago
    last hard - Tuesday

    lyric - I think I do

  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭

    Ale sorry to hear about your friend.
    DD  wow, great run last week!
    Blisters  fresh pasta, surely that is training, just cooking training?

    What: attempt at a few miles in the snow hopefully
    Why: I haven't been out since last Monday due to biopsy and wound dressing.  It's still on, but much smaller and easier to handle.
    Last hard: the last 10 days of nothing.
    Lyrics: Don't think so.

    Christmas tree is up, snow is falling, definitely got a Christmassy feeling round here.  Best news is, now I'm off antibiotics I can go drink the gluhwein at the Christmas Market image

    Have a good one all.

  • AH..tough times, thoughts with you.
    50 miles on the bike DD, I find that bad enough in a car!!
    Lyrics: Unsure
    What: Haven't a clue,
    Why: Waiting for update on Paddington trains from son (Returning to Wales for Christmas)
    Last rest: Yesterday
    Last hard: Week past Sunday
    Last day at work today so get some training in from now until 28th then off to Romeimage

  • Afternoon, just!

    What: 3k walked in 31 minutes, off road, although I was also naughty!
    Why: included 4 x 60 (metres, not minutes or miles) very slowly run. Not allowed yet so don't tell the phys! The very slowly run bit actually seemed easier than walking very fast, but I won't be overdoing this and will have to judge any reaction to the calf, rather than the Achilles.

    Lyrics: no

    That sounds more promising, Emzap.

    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success
  • Tom.Tom. ✭✭✭
    AH - scary news...dangerously close to that age myself

    Got a streaming cold - it seems like my brain is leaking out of my nose. Hope to get out for something this afternoon, prpbably 5-6M easily.

    Lyrics - yes

    Back later
  • RFJRFJ ✭✭✭

    Greetings all,

    Lyrics - No

    What - 9.25m with a club mate
    Why - Off on leave and its glorious out there today

    Take care

  • What: enjoying my daughters' company
    Why: they're only home until 28th
    Last rest: yesterday
    Lyrics - kicking myself for not getting yesterday'simage

  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭

    lyrics yes and I love the artist's stuff!

    well I did not get a vlm club place bit gutted but hey ho!

    OH sounds lovely, cant wait to do the same..

    emzap enjoy the gluhwein!

    lmh enjoy yourself dahn 'ere!

    what: some sort of gym

    why: be nice I guess

    last hard: tuesday, been lazy this week!

    last easy: this week

    have a good day all

    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • Wabo: you'll have to do the training and find another mara instead!
    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success
  • Sorry to hear that Wabo.

    Alehouse - don't go undoing all your good work so far

    OH - sounds good.

    emzap - being able to drink gluhwein is definitely progress.

    Dustin - you're right, we had blue skies and even a glimpse of a strange yellow thing on the drive down however heavy rain forecast for all day tomorrow so I may take advantage and nip out for a short run once lunch has settled.

    Tom - don't push it if you have a steaming cold!

    TC - hope he's soon home safe.

    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Tom: cold or is it the dreaded man-flu? image

    Tinselcelt: enjoy the trip to Rome

    I got beaten by the CNBA fairy this morning. Bitterly cold north-easterly winds were rattling at the house and I couldn't face going out there image. Tomorrow is another day or maybe I feel brave enough to face the cold when I get home.

  • LMH: I'll be careful! It was a very gentle experiment and won't be repeated until Christmas day at the latest! Not sure what a blue sky with a strange yellow thing is? Apart from when I walked it has rained all day. I walked part of one of the local parkruns: I say part because the rest of it was flooded too deep to venture into.

    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success
  • Alehouse - the river had been over its banks at home too but it seems somewhat drier here - though it did manage to rain for a little while whilst I was waiting for lunch to settle.

    chickadeee - you're allowed the odd day off image

    Just five miles for me - but more than I was expecting for today. Just hope I can find a window to get out in tomorrow.

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