Morning.

Lyrics - Those cocky little fires you started in the night

It's starting to feel quite wintry but as Blister's said - not really cold yet. Rain forecast for this afternoon so hopefully I'll get out on my bike this morning - though it will be the hybrid as I need to find out how long it will take us to ride to the 10k we're marshalling on Sunday. I'm finding it hard to not do as much as when I was IM training and to let the weight drift up a little but I know I need to, can't keep that level of training or weight control up all year.

OH - hope your ankle is ok to run this evening but better to take the long view and miss JS if not 100% at this stage.

Wabo - more races coming up before Snowdon?

Hope you're ok if you're looking in birks.

What:              a bimble on the bike
Why:               see above
Last hard:       13/9 (feels like ages)
Last rest:        27/9

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

    morning!
    +2 for Blisters, LmH comments on the weather: outlook grim, but was mild this morning (still just t-shirt weather). Packed two lots of running kit as may well be raining at lunchtime and on the way home.
    Blisters - thanks for the heads up that greater than, less than deletes posts. Weird.

    Lyric - yes indeed, this one is on my playlist for those long tedious winter multi-lap runs around the business park. They'll be starting again soon.

    what - run at lunchtime, U11 coaching, then maybe small track work waiting for eldest's hockey to finish.
    why - Thursday
    last rest - Friday
    last hard - Tuesday

  • and so you should be Wabo - you're running really well.

    Just short of 19 miles on the hybrid for me this morning, it's mild but very grey and the air is wet if you know what I mean?

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

    Partly due to having a grumpy wife. Partly CBA. Partly due to the excuse of taper. Partly using a few tight muscle groups as an excuse.
