Todays lyrics: You - you got a nasty reputation

What:40mns steady over paths and some grass

Why: Saturday morning

Dry, cold and a bit windy

Coffee and catch up


  • Morning birks. Thanks for the thread start - I was beginning to struggle.

    Yesterday's lyrics as most knew were Baggy Trousers by Madness.

    Race well Wabo and anyone else?

    What:                  rest or 30 minutes easy
    Why:                   racing tomorrow
    Last hard:           22/12
    Last rest:            28/12

    Lyrics - feel that I should.

  • Morning LMH

    No probs: I'll start the thread when I can. Thought that was yesterdays lyrics. All the best for tomorrow's race.

    Wabo: All the best to you too. And any others racing.

  • What: swim and run

    why: it's Saturday ( but the weather remains dreich)

    last hard: Monday 

    last rest: yesterday

    lyrics: no

    hope you run well tomorrow LM.H

    BM - Paths and grass in the dark ??!! 

  • OH: No they are lit by the street lights.

  • Morning!

    No to the lyrics.

    What: in an hour or so will go for an off-road hour or so...when it stops raining!
    Why: it seems to be what I do on a Saturday.


  • Morning

    what: 40 mins with easy jog round Eadtleigh parkrun.

    why: prepping

    last hard: Wednesday

    last rest: Monday 30th December

    lyrics: no
  • Good luck, wabo and LMH this weekend

    AF: following the 12 week 55-70 plan but started 2 weeks early just on car I get a cold or a niggle image

    dibs: good luck for the review, maybe they let you pass. Crossing my fingers image

    what: 16.5 with 8@MP

    why: bad weather forecast for tomorrow

    last rest: yesterday

    last. hard: should have been today but I felt amazing. One of those 'shit, I'm too fast but who cares I feel great runs' image. PMP is 7:37 but I averaged 7:32 today image

    lyrics:I should think so
  • Morning all,

    what - 2 hours (with a prakrun in the middle)
    Why - Long Run as racing tomorrow
    Last hard - Tues
    Last Rest - Yesterday

    14.88m for the long run (inc a 22:50 on my watch 23:30 official as started late parkrun, that was muddy, was aiming for MP but too hard conditions for that)

    Take care

  • How lovely chickadee - you bank that memory and hold on to it for those runs that aren't as great feeling.

    You ready then Gobi?

    Is it cross country tomorrow RFJ?

    I sort of wish I had chosen the rest day today. Just back from three and a half miles and whilst it was quite fast for the effort it felt awful and I took ages to raise my HR. Must ensure I get a good mile in to warm up before the off tomorrow though that can be difficult at Brass with crowding and flooding.

  • Couple of "rides" under the bridge with the brisk tidal flow image

    followed by 9 mile loop with Elspeth.

    Sounds like you're on form chickadee! image

    Good long run with park run RFJ - race well tomorrow


  • afternoon
    LmH - congrats on the silverware LmH
    Blisters - sorry to hear you're still struggling
    Decent milegae being logged elsewhere today too!
    what - 12 miles over the fields. Some really boggy parts (knee deep gloop) but higher wind swept parts were practically dry. bizarre.
    why - Parliament hill next week for southern xc
    last rest - dec 25th
    last hard - legs say this morning!
    lyric - not sure
    have a great day

  • LMH - I shall report back tomorrow afternoon :??)
  • Afternoon!

    Some good long running going on, as Dustin included, sir!

    What: 61 mins, 11k, so that's slightly quicker than usual for my "long" run.
    Why: quicker because about 5k was on the road whilst the rest was on muddy/puddly tracks and canal bank. 




  • What:  4ish in the mud

    Why:  Pre-Training

    Last Hard:  No

    Last Rest: 12 days


    Have a good one!


  • Well done AF: consistent consistency is the key. Keep it going!

    Just noticed that I have passed 100 for the year. Kilometres that is. 18 days of consistent consistency!

  • LMH - Stubbington 10K road race, but by the sea.... could be interesting if windy (same race as Gobi, except he will be ahead of me by about 1-2 mins may be more as I feel fat and slow at present for me).

    Going nicely AF

  • Thanks guys, but I have a mountain to climb image


  • XC today was really tough, just couldn't get a grip on the surface at all, even with spikes on.  Slightly disappointed with my performance but I know it wasn't too bad. Was about 5.5 miles and I started too fast.  You'd think after 30 years I'd know better.

    Lyrics, nope.  Longish, easy run tomorrow.

  • Hi Guys,

    Another rest day for me, Other than went for a long walk with a friend. Long run tomorrow

    Good luck tomorrow LMH!!
