Lyrics - Saw it written and I saw it say

What's wrong with your foot Literatin?

What:                an easy run
Why:                  tapering
Last hard:          13/9
Last rest:           27/9

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

    Nice run Blisters, good pace too for the distance. For me to get an average HR of 132 I think I'd be brisk walking. As I posted last week, will need to get myself a cheap HRM just to see what readings I get these days.
    What - club night
    Why - Its what Tuesdays are there for
    last rest - Friday
    last hard - Sunday

    Applied on behalf of my club for VLM places, so a second bite beckons. We got 3 places last year, hopefully the same this.

    Lyric - doubtful

  • Morning, sorry to hear AH, hope they catch the b'stards but I dont hold up much hope on past experience (3 burglaries in as many years)

    What - 12 miles run in the dark

    Why - Couldn't sleep, so gave up fighting the duvet in the early hours. Hopefully will avoid nodding off at my desk this afternoon! Really enjoyed it though, certainly puts a different perspective on running. 
    last rest - Saturday
    last hard - Friday

    Oh, and thats a no on the lyrics.

  • What: maybe swim this evening (pool)
    Why: slow progress down the stairs this morning

    Last Hard: LSR yesterday

    Last rest: Sunday

    Lyrics: no

    Blowing a gale through the night

  • Sorry to hear about the burglary, alehouse image   it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth if you can't feel safe in your own home anymore

    Blisters: brilliant running image

    I managed 30 mins without stopping yesterday. Sciatica all the way down the left leg but I can live with that. It was nothing compared to the pain that hit me about 2 weeks ago when all this rubbish kicked off ...

    what: another 30 mins tonight
    why: better than nothing
    last hard: driving is hard at the moment - wish I drove an automatic
    last rest: 27/9
    lyrics: I think so but not 100% sure

    chickadee, well I hope the sciatica doesn't linger for you

    Adrian hi and like the avatar!

    what: race at hog hill, 4 lovely times up the hill!

    why: new season begins tonight..

    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭

    alehouse so sorry to hear about your mum and the break in, that's horrible

    OH you are way more on track for Snowdonia than I am! long runs have been 12, 13, 16 and 15! I am banking on my marathon head I think... Oh goodness....

    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭


    What: rest again I think
    Why: too much work to finish before bank holiday
    Last hard: resting
    Last rest: yesterday
    Lyrics: familiar, but no

    Chick good to see you running.  Do you have exercises to do for your back?
    Wabo surprised today wasn't the last hard, 4 times up a hill!  when is Snowdonia?
    Dustin good luck in the ballot.

    Have a good one all.

  • Not excited today as I don't know the lyrics.

    LMH - bruised/swollen ankle, hurts to walk on. It happened while I was unconscious after passing out in a race on Sunday. image

    Hi Chickadeee! image

  • 1 mile warm up, weights session, 5 mile with a small bit of speed.

    Turbo hour later!!

  • Afternoon!

    Yesterday's lyrics were "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves" Cher. No idea of today's.

    What: will be 40 mins or so later
    Why: its what we do! Tired though...have spent from 7.30 labouring again: need to get certain things finished before the plasterers come on Friday, and I'm working the next two days.

    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success
  • That doesn't good Literatin - do you know why you lost consciousness?

    You have a BH coming up emzap?

    Racing as much as ever Wabo - you'll have earned all that cake.

    What's the next race Paddy?

    No need to cross train Alehouse!

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

     What 7 with strides

    Why I bow to P&D

    Lyrics no

    As a Radio 2 DJ used to claim "night time is the right time" Adrian. I always prefer toru. early even when I'm not working.

    Ale- really sorry to hear about your Mum's break in. Must be really unsettling.

  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭

    yes LMH. Chicka and I get German Reunification day on Thurs.  Fits in nicely with going down for the marathon so get a nice long weekend.

  • LMH - no idea! I'm annoyed about my missed PB though. Grr. Am having some tests this week.

  • Enjoy emzap.

    Hope you get some answers and it's nothing serious literatin.

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

    Welcome Literatin and hope ankle / consciousness issues are sorted

    What - Intervals (2 x400m / 4 x 800m / 2 x 400m)
    Why - Speed
    Last Hard - Above at lunchLast Rest - Last Weds

    Lyrics No

    Take care

  • Evening!

    What: turned out to be 36 mins
    Why: I struggled. Legs ached from about 15 mins. May be the cross-training.
    Last hard: that was
    Last rest: yesterday...at least from running.

    Going to work tomorrow and Thurs for a rest!

    Birks: I seem to be rather short of Commonwealth tickets, hockey apart. 5 of us applied for all the athletics sessions...and got none between us. Can you sort it please?!

    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success
  • LMH - Either  a XC race on 13th Oct or a road race end Oct/ early Nov.

    Ale - remember your March Target




  • Lyrics, ah, yesterday's was relatively easy and I was humming it, even though I got the wrong artist. Today, normal service is resumed.
    Dustin, if you start your HR calcs with the most basic approach of 220-age, giving me a theoretical max of 168. For 85% or working heart rate for a marathon, that gives me 143. Maybe add a couple because the I've been able to top that theoretical MHR.

    It seems like general training today is pretty much a drag it out day (except for RFJ). It certainly was for me. Just the 5 miles to loosen up a bit.
