Lyrics: Turn around - look at what you see.
What: nothingWhy: peak flow 350Last hard: still being illLast rest: I've done nothing but rest.
morning all & happy friday!!what - 5 or 6 easywhy - ticking overlast rest - last wedslast hard - wednesdaylyric - not surelmh - the enforced rest may be doing you good...think of the positives!wabo - nice result yesterday, shouldn't miss Bale/Tom Daley in the 2nd leganyone racing this weekend??
It's been a whole week of absolutely nothing Dustin - and no sign of being able to resume in the near future either. Getting a bit down about it now - should be peak training weeks
What: boat to AberdeenWhy: Heading south for Loch Katrine marathon on SundayLyrics for us maybe should be "We will rock you" (or similar). Boat going despite SE gale!Elspeth unfortunately just marshalling due to further injury (had been signed up for marathon too)
Hope things pick up for you soon LM.H
Dustin, lol no I dont think we will miss him, he is getting on my last nerve now! ALso we were not a oneman team last nigt which was good. He doesnt need to do it, I dont get it but the Spurs fans around me do seem to see things differently to me! Or is it just a footy fan thing?
lmh so so sorry to hear you are still poorly
I think these lyrics are familiar
good luck OH!
What: of to a swanky gym with a mate tonight, on a pass, I am fearing it may be a bit towie which I will absolutely hate but she is nervous and needs some encouragement...
why: oldest dearest best bud and its what you do!
last hard: yesterday am
last easy: spurs last night
have a good weekend all
Mornng all, just
lmh - that's really annoying. Are you still feeling ill, or is it just the peak flow? Can you tell between asthma type problems consequent on infections and asthma type problems for other causes? (Son two was a wheezer, and he had triggers which had little to do with illness, as well as responding to every cold with a prolonged bout of wheezing.)
Ale- is the ankle the limiting factor, or is the treatment also a problem? V. frustrating, I'm sure.
Wabo - hope you survive the gym. Never managed more than three times in a gym. Stickless is Not a gym bunny.
Me? Early (for me) up and out with ex-LAMM partner who wanted company. Ran outside comfort zone, definitely. About 4 miles, minimum circumperambulation of city. One stretch break, and needed to walk for a dizzy patch. Really resented that, because it coincided with my favourit patch, along a board walkway by the river. Somehow the boards have enough memory of springingess that they inspire my feet to behave likewise.
I would say grumpy hip is still grumpy but not injured. I expect that when core gets a bit stronger it will stop being grumpy.
Away for the weekend, so I shall miss lurking about the half on Sunday. Shame about that. No training either, but this week has been satisfactory. Monday back to the Stairs.
Hope the crossing is smooth OH.
Wabo - that's what friends are for - good on you.
Stickless - still feeling decidedly ill. Burning, rattling cough;, sore throat; swollen glands; alternately streaming and bunged up nose; headache; tired........ If it were just a low peak flow I'd probably be back on the bike at least. Hope you have a good weekend away.
Wabo: Don't have you down as a gym bunny
OH: Hang on
What: 60 miles on the bike with mateswhy: For once we weren't racing on a FridayLast Hard: WednesdayLast Rest: 8 days
Good luck at Loch Kathrine marathon, OH LMH: has it really been a week already? Oh.my.word. No wonder you feel down the dumps. stickless: I like the sound of the walkway bit - I'm thinking fenland, dragonflies, a lazy breeze and wish it were summer!wabo: have fun in the swanky gym - don't forget your pink crop top and layer on the mascara remember: swanky gym bunnies never ever break a sweat
Good luck at the HM, straycelt. I'd rather race a hard half than try ballroom dancing
Right guys, I'm signing off until March 17.Did my 22 today. Cold and very very very windy. It was hard work. 95 miles in the last 7 days - looking forward to a week of easy stuff. It will be cold in Denmark but the house has its own fireplace and a sauna too. Plus we have access to a gym. I may even do some dreadmill running

morning all, Postie - nice run, good to be accurate to within 16metresI agree with you though, I reckon Chicka is looking close to 3h15 on current training (so no pressure there then...!!) no way, Dustin & postie. As much as I love dreaming about it. I know my limits and I may one day well break 3:15 but not on April 21, 2013

not sure what's wrong with the site or my computer, but quotes don't quite work and I can't seem to edit anymore .... and when I type it's this annoying small font that miraculously disappears when posting though. Weird.
Chick that happened to me yesterday and now small font as i type
LMH how annoying
DD 60 miles don't think i've even done that in a week
OH safe journey and good luck
What 3.04 milesWhy: praticing a routineLast Hard: Today had to walk halfwayLyrics not sure probably not
lmh - sorry to hear that. You can't do anything but bide your time.
Thanks for all the well wishes. No target time in mind aim is just to complete.
LMH how frustrating, I hope that you manage to kick it this weekend.OH good luck Chicka have a great holidayStickless I love that bit too (if it's the boardwalky bit I'm thinking of).
What: 12.5 milesWhy: wanted to see how I'm getting on with the half only 3 weeks awayLast hard: the 1st half f that, uphill and into a stong wind!
Quick question regarding nutrition. At about mile 6 I got really really hungry. I'd eaten porridge and toast for brekkie and had some dextrose tablets with me, and despite taking them and feeling my energy perk up, my tummy was growling for some food. Any suggestions? I have a problem with being hungry most of the time anyway, but when running for 2 hours, it's not ideal!
Have a good evening all.
LMH: oh my- doesn't sound like fun at all. I have plenty of suggestions for home remedies, if you need any- but I think by now you have probably tried everything under the sun.
Stickless: enjoy the weekend!
Other Half: best of luck!
Chick: nice long run
Wabo: joy of the gym... I still have to have my first session. I have acces to the university gym, but keep postponing signing up for the induction.
ETA: Emzap, crossposting! I also get hungry all the time. What works for me is eating enough (probably too much) the day before a run over 10M is planned. Weird, and it may be partly psychologically but who cares if it works.
Which reminds me I'd better have a snack right now.
What: stairs: 11 or 12 ascents
Why: Friday, and when tired I loose track of numbers
Last hard: the last one of those
Last rest: Wednesday
Pa and ma beestie are here for the weekend. Hooray!
Happy holidays chickadeee - I like Denmark, whereabouts are you going? Though you've probably already gone!
emzap - I'm always hungry too but find that a gel is usually sufficient to stop the stomach rumbling.
Enjoy the weekend with your parents Tine - my in-laws were due but have elected to postpone their visit rather than risk catching whatever this is.
SC - you go steady with that ballroom dancing stuff!
Patience has never been my strong point and this is really trying what little I have. Now just hoping to be better in time for Ashby 20 next weekend.
This tiny font is annoying me!
Stickless: the calf problem is a new one, and is with my "good" leg rather than the one the Achilles op was on. The general feeling is that it has had a lot to cope with over the last few months/year and has had to bear the brunt of any walking/running, and now needs a rest itself!
What: nothing todayWhy: long day working plus calf doesn't really fancy a walk, even!
LMH: I don't see much harm in a couple of miles of gentle running. I have often run in the past, gently, with my peak flow that low. It seems to kick start the breathing, to a degree. Mine goes low when I get pleurisy: are you on anti-biotics/short course of steroids? The latter seems to work for me.
Busy today on here.
Yesterdays lyrics were: 'Jump' by Van Halen.
What: 3M easy
Why: A bit heavy legged
LMH: Hope you get back soon.
ale:This tiny font is aoso doing my head in
OH: All the best.
More to catch up on.
ale: No I honestly don't think so this time re an extension.
Cheers for best wishes re me finding anew one job.
WAbo, even as a United fan, I really enjoyed watching Spurs play great football and beat one of Europe's big names.
Ditto, hate font, and have been having edit nightmares for months now.
Running? two days in a row. Didn't get a 20, but did tab out a very mizzle-pleasant 15 miles at a steady pace, apart from a little trot around halfway. I was measurably lighter after hte run. 2h 05m on feet. Cycling is going to be a shocker tomorrow.
Birks, good luck, on the hunt. I do know that companies are recruiting at the moment, and for serious placements too.
Alehouse - nurse practitioner said that as it was viral antibiotics no use and she didn't think that steroids were indicated - though I think they would be good idea. May contact the surgery tomorrow (they have a morning surgery) and see if whoever is on will prescribe. It certainly doesn't seem to be getting any better on its own. I can cough a lung up sitting on the sofa, laying in bed or walking Grace so I'm not sure quite what running would do!
Let's get ready to Rumba!!!!LMH...careful on the steroids...virus may just need to run its course.Open fire and own sauna...envious chickadee.AH...stretchWhat: Not a lotWhy: Exhausted afetr all that Latin stuffLast Hard: Learning the Rumba or last SundayLast Rest: Oh...today.Well done Spurs...who'll bale you out in Milan tho?
