  • Hello

    2k swam and 8 miles ran with 8 x 800. felt good.

    Something on bike (or turbo in the garden) later.

    Day looked good up to this but sky just gone very dark grey - no rain forecast  - maybe it'll blue up again - either that or thunder!!


  • emzap - send some heat our way!

    Wabo - sounds as though you're really enjoying your running.

    What's your next target chickadee?

    Training hard Paddy - what's your target race?

    3.2k swum and two hours biked. Much nicer day than yesterday.

  • LMH - 6 July Olympic Tri - I think I'm nearly ready

    - How many weeks to Iron(wo)man??

  • Afternoon

    What 10ish slowish
    Why slowish training
    Lyrics No

    Ran without using the hr alarm on the garmin so there was a lot less cursing than previous efforts. Did manage to keep the hr between 140 and 145 just by keeping an eye on the watch, so a relatively successfull session.


    What: rest
    Why:  Elspeth's birthday and rest is needed
    Last Hard: realising postman had let me down on all items ordered for Elspeth image
    Last rest: Saturday 
    Lyrics: no

    Weather: bit of a miserable day here again

    emzap that's hot although I burnt my nose with sunglasses left on the dashboard the day after Dirty 30

    Is a female Ironman contestant a Maggie? image
    GD&R .... 

  • Evening

    Blisters - you make me laugh Have seen the book and even  exchanged the odd tweet Love running too much image

    donaldo - that's a nice pace

    Received sad news last night lady I worked with died She had Bowel cancer (like my mum) but it had spread too far  Really sad and far too young only in her  early 50s. Only comfort is  she's not suffering any more

    What: Dentist
    Why: I know how to enjoy myself
    Last hard: sprinting for the train after (involved a bridge)
    Lyrics No

    No running - rest today Dentist  not for another 6 months image

  • pammie sorry to hear about your colleague.

    Reached 37C here today, LMH I can send you at least 10 C and still be plenty warm enough!

    New running shoes arrived, but stuck in post office.  Will hopefully get them tomorrow image

  • Nutrition indeed!  No bugs today thankfully..... although my training today was... one single 100m race.

    It was the school sports day and I was taking part in the 4 x 100m relay against the leavers and the gap students.  I was on leg 3.  At the first changeover, we dropped the batton - muppets! - so by the time they reached me, we were last and that is where we stayed!  That's the second year in a row!!! 

    It says a lot that all it took to completely exhaust me today was my 100m leg.  I went to train afterwards but my legs decided not to work so I went home to drink Irn Bru and eat sugary sweets instead - a much more fun pastime! lol


  • Sounds like it was needed donaldo.

    Yes please emzap.

    Sorry to hear about your colleague Pammie.
