Monday 7th January 2013

All the leaves and brown and the sky is grey

Or maybe it just feels that way when you are back at work and your family is still swanning around on holiday.  

what: 60mins easy round the bays. Warm but windy.
why: standard Monday recovery session. My running partner raced a half ironman yesterday so it was actually quite an easy pace for once!

LMH - good luck with Brass Monkey. Half marathon is a good distance I think. 


  • Morning

    What:3M easy

    Why: Firest run in 2 weeks due to cold/lurgy.

    Lyrics: Think so

    Back later.

  • Morning.

    Glad you're feeling better and are able to get back to it birkmyre.

    Thanks for starting the thread M. If it makes you feel any better it's pitch black here until nearly 0800hrs and again by 1615hrs.

    What:                       rest/smt
    Why:                        tired/niggly
    Last hard:                last year
    Last rest:                 last year

    Lyrics - sure do.

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

    Lyrics: yes

    What: find appointment card
    Why: Achilles consultant this evening. Hopefully he will sign me off, or say come back in 3 months etc.
    May walk this afternoon, plus must do my stretches.

    Back later.

    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

  • Hi guys,

    missed the weekend's exploits ...

    Sorry to see that Tom is suffering from yet another bout of injuries image

    Some hard core racing by RFJ and Dustin's extended family

    Enjoy your rest day, LMH.

    Afternoon all

    Dustin High Wycombe "oop north"!  Where was she playing, I grew up there.
    RFJ  good racing
    Ale hope the achillies consultation goes ok today

    What: rest
    Why: driving back to Germany last night was very knackering and my whole body hurts from dancing in heals at the wedding on Saturday night!
    Last hard: see above
    Lyrics: Yup

    parkrun on Saturday was very slow.  I'm not sure whether it's due to the slippery conditions, or my condition...I'm hoping it's not too much of the latter...

    Have a good day all.

  • Evening

    What 15.24
    Why missed yesterday
    Lyrics yes

    Almost an Lsr into work this morning as I was unable to run yesterday, poorly OH. Starting to feel it now so easy 7ish tomorrow probably.

  • Evening all,

    Been busy with work, and most of my spare time has been fitting in plenty of running, so not getting online as often.

    Nothing today though, did 8 miles yesterday, and gotta be up at 4am tomorrow for work, so rest day it is!

    Club sessions start again tomorrow, so will be back to normal from now on.

    Hope everyone is well.

  • oh, nearly forgot, yep for the lyrics image

  • DonaldoDonaldo ✭✭✭

    Lyrics - yup!

    Ran 3 miles in 25:46 - nice and easy - still not completely over the 'flu' I had at the weekend so sweated like never before while running! 

    Was back to work today too - am now Deputy Head of my school so it was a very busy in-service day for me.  Fairly tired this evening! image

  • RFJRFJ ✭✭✭

    Lyrics - Yes (2 days on the trot that must equal my record....)image

    What - 5.25m Club run
    Why - Easy run
    Last hard - sat
    Last Rest - Weds (my rest day)

    Take care all

  • Lyrics, yes.
    Easy training day: managed 35 minutes on the bike in the garage. Minutes, not miles. That will do.
