What:3.5M Easy off road on fields

Why: Heavy legged from yesterday

Catch up time soon


  • donaldo: All the best for your Half tomorrow.

    Sons Exam went okay.

  • Morning.

    Good to hear it birks. Does he have many more?

    Early start tomorrow donaldo? If so - have a good one.

    Didn't realise you had the wind there too Stickless - hope it's not too much of an issue.

    Still blowing here but it is at least dry. OH - will you please take your weather back!

    What:           30 min easy run or rest - will see how I feel after work
    Why:            Fridays are easy or rest day
    Last hard:    21/7
    Last rest:     27/7

    Lyrics - thought I did then re-read.

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

    happy friday !
    Don - good luck with the race
    Birks - enjoy the recovery run & well done to jnr
    Well yesterday was strange weather wise.
    6 done at lunchtime, first half in torrential rain, but coming past the palace the sun appeared and was shining brightly for the return leg.
    Not so in the evening - helped putting the U11s (50 or so) through their 200m track reps. I don't think it stopped hammering down, with intermittant hail. Blue hands, and soaked to the skin. whats that quote ' there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes choice' or something. Quite.
    Today - something like Birks easy later or maybe nothing.
    Why - plan a LSR tomorrow early doors
    last rest - 13 days
    last hard - run wise, Tuesday
    Like LmH I had to do a double take on the lyric, still not sure I know

  • Morning again

    LMH: Yeah he's doing I think 4 all in. He's going to do an HND in sports coaching at a local FE College in the autumn.

    Dustin: cheers mate.


  • LM.H your weather gods are just vindictive - they have sent your weather here!image

    What: just getting ready for week away
    Why: Heading away for Cape Wrath week tomorrow
    Last Rest: Wednesday
    Last Hard: Monday 28th
    Lyrics: no

    Donaldo - hope half goes well

  • Don - tear it up tomorrow.

    8 miles with 12 X 400 d&d. Nice. followed by gym curcuit.

    Also had a good TT on the turbo last nite.



  • I hope he gets what he needs to get on his course then birks. Is it a little stressful or does he take it all in his stride?

    Dustin - sounds tortuous. The youngsters sound good though - training through that.

    Sorry OH image

    I must admit I tend to dread my turbo sessions Paddy but I do think they do me a lot of good and I'm always surprised at what I can manage when I put my mind to it.

    Found a very little window of opportunity this morning so did my 30 minutes easy, albeit on the treadie for time management reasons. Feel better for it.

    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • LMH: No he seems to take it in hi stride. He has worked hard the last year and studied hard the last few months. Credit where it is due.

    Lyrics: Yes

    Youngest off to school prom tonight. Why do they grow up so fast?
    Donaldo, good luck for the half and OH enjoy the Wrath of the cape.

    Might wander up for a Park Run/stroll tomorrow. Surely I can set a new benchmark and only improve from there? Never done a 5K so could be fun jogging at the backimage

  • chickstachicksta ✭✭✭

    just popping in to wish everyone a good weekend image

    Managed to shake the cold and got a fair bit of running and cycling done yesterday and today. 'twas a Bank Holiday here yesterday and I took a bridge day too making it a nice long weekend. Lots of sun until now. I suspect the heavens are going to open any minute and boy, it's windy!!

    what: 10 miles run and 12 miles cycled (to the shops and back)
    why: nice day for it
    last hard: Saturday
    last rest: Wednesday
    lyrics: no

    Good luck Donaldo and OH image

  • Pammie*Pammie* ✭✭✭


    IE wasn't responding yesterday so hence why I was absent

    Wabo - Have you done Cape Wrath before - its on my wish list

    Birks  all the best  to your son with the remaining exams

    Good news  I got the job - no better off  but its guaranteed workand I keep my foot in the door. Means weekends I only work Sunday means more parkruns

    4.52 miles yesterday with a few walkbreaks

    What: (today) 4.78 miles some walk breaks
    Why: base
    Last Hard: the monster hill today I walked up but will run up it one day
    Lyrics Not today


  • Congratulations Pammie - must be a relief.

    Glad you're feeling better chickadeee.

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

    What 9ish
    Why dropped car off at garage before work
    Lyrics no

    Congratulations Pammie

    Car went in without central/remote locking and has come out with a broken spring image

  • alehousealehouse ✭✭✭


    Well done Pammie, and I trust we will be saying well done to some racers over the weekend too.

    Doesn't sound great, Postie!

    Nice work yesterday evening, Wabo, and hope that that is reflected in your 10k. And with fresher legs I suspect you will reap the benefits of the marathon training over the shorter races.

    What: 16 mins or so
    Why: To get from A to B! It was actually shorter than planned: from my car to a garden centre, then got lift back.

    Lyrics: no

    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success
  • Evening

    Pammie: You got the job well doneimageimage

    postie: Oh dear..

    Been wet since lunch time. Glad I got best of it when running this morning.

  • DustinDustin ✭✭✭

    congrats pammie!
    2-3 easy miles done (20 odd minutes)....

  • DonaldoDonaldo ✭✭✭

    Well done on the job Pammie!

    Have a good week, OH.  

    Cheers for good luck wishes...tempted to hit it hard tomorrow but undecided.  

    Rest day today and I don't know the lyrics (surprise!) image

  • Sat on my backside all afternoon and into the evening doing wrok. I prioritise it into what is going to get me into the deep doo dah first, and sod the rest. Progress made.

    Training has been a nil though.
    Bike tomorrow, at least 50 miles. I'll see if I can make it more, but that will involve heading off on my own after the gang depart. That won't be easy.

  • NZChristineNZChristine ✭✭✭

    Pammie - well done on the job front.

    Blisters - enjoy your bike ride.

    What: Mowed the lawns in between showers.
