morning all, Enjoy your recovery holiday Don !!what - maybe a few miles at lunchtime, more likely tonight. why - work in the way so will miss vets fixture but hopefully get the chance to run. Managed ~45 minutes yesterday around the midday sun. Absolutely lovely day to be out. Even the sheep were lethargic: not bothering to escape the shade as I went past. Last rest - most of last week was easyLast hard - cheering on a scot, now unsurprisingly 1/20 to win sports personality. Running wise - marathon a week agolyric - yep
sounds like a great anniversary, Blisters what: 13 miles with 8 @ MPwhy: coz I was lazy all weekendlast rest: yesterdaylast hard: keeping my HR in check today (muggy even at stupid o'clock)lyrics: yes
What: maybe a swim laterWhy: nice day Last hard: SaturdayLast rest: technically yesterday but did 5h drive back from Skye
Dustin - AM's just a Scot when he loses but British when he wins We were on the ferry for the last set. The reception failed a few minutes into the crossing and we were left with odd snippets
I have been away from the forum while the semester was wizzing by, but now that is over, and I believe you may be interested to know this:
Stickless and I completed the SLMM yesterday, with time to spare on the cut-off time! It was great fun. We were slow, as we expected, but we managed to find all the controls, get up all the required hills, and down again. The final descent was more or less sliding down between the gorse bushes, and I was this morning still finding bits of gorse in very unexpected or unmentionable places.
Stickless is absolutely chuffed, and wondering how to break the news to her neurologist
We're already planning the next one, if our calendars allow for a reunion of Team Kingfisher
I am moving to the US in the next 6 weeks, so if you don't see me around again for a while, just assume I am still floating on little endorphine-enduced clouds for the time being.
hope all is well, and may the training and racing be fun!
Hello Tine well done to you and Stickless what an achievement Good luck with your move to the US too.
So pleased to hear it Tine - well done! I've been thinking about Stickless a lot recently and wondering how she was doing. Hope your move is as stress free as possible.
lyrics yes and so true..
what a fantastic post from tinebeest, chuffed for you both!! Good luck with the move tine x
chickadee that's a kick start to the week if ever I saw one!
what: 7 miles early this morning
why: training for snowdonia starts here
last hard: that was very
last easy: yesterday
have a good day all
Afternoon (too nice to be evening yet!)!
Well done Tine and Stickless.
What: 12. Unfortunately they were slow minutes. Why: niggly ankle. Not as niggly as my L62 coachee who, in the last few strides of her race yesterday, went over on her ankle. Now on crutches and unless she is extremely lucky she is not going to be running for quite some time. Hospital said ligament damage.
Lyrics: yes. Wabo: did you race at the weekend? And are you following a particular plan for Snowdonia (apart from running up every hill you can find!)?
Sorry to hear about sore ankle Ale. Hope it is better soon.
Lacrosse was cancelled, so 5.5 incredibly tough miles. It was so hot and the wind seemed to be in my face the whole way!
Need a day off running tomorrow
Wabo - don't like this idea of starting Snowdonia preparation - it still seems a long way off (and I'd like a little rest )
Hope ankle remains no more than a niggle AH
Excellent Tinebeest and Stickless, thats fabulous, plus all the best with the move to the US
Rest day here
As for wimbledon champs, what about Marruy in the Double last year and V Wade back in 77......, both Brits last time I loked...
Congratulations to the champions, by whom, I mean Tinebeast and Stickless. Also to anyone who got out there and got running. Today was one for sorting out the sheep from the goats eh? Alehouse, you take this recuperation slowly and steadily. Your head already accepts that it will be a prologed return, you have to convince the heart yet. And STRETCH.
The papers I saw today were full of discussion about A Murray getting a knighthood. He will think that bonkers, as I do. Certainly some gong from HMQ is in the offing according to the PM. But I have a question. It's my dim memory at fault here. What gong was awarded to V Wade?
Anyway, with that thought, and a negative on the lyrics (I've been humming Don't Stop Me Now by Queen) I shall progress towards today's training. After a hot day and a prompt finish: off to Tenby. In to the water at 6pm, there was a shoal of triathletes who swam once around the bay, and I had to work to keep to the back of them. That was 30 mins. They swam a mile, I cut a couple of corners. MORE I hear you call, so I went around again, not cutting corners. This time I went much further but did 45 mins. There were some interesting jellyfish, and I hate jellyfish. The water had hot and cold parts, with the coldest near to the beach. Eh? Anyway, I'm guessing on 2 miles swum. Very pleasing.
A change and onto the bike, seeing as I'd got it. 2 miles out and there's a chip van. Oh YES PLEASE. A small bag of salted chips in my bumbag and cycle off, practising my Pirates Nutrition regime. Total 23 miles but a pleasant ride. A steak and a Guinness for tea. Sorted.
If anyone's doing the West Wales marathon next week, it's a bitch. I cycled the course.
