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.

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

    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.

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


  • DustinDustin ✭✭✭

    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.

    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


  • DonaldoDonaldo ✭✭✭

    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!!
