Today lyrics: 'To tempt you in and drive you far away.'
Yesterdays lyrics: 'The Killers and 'Human'
Why: Start the week,
Soaked as it was pouring.
Coffee and catch up soon.
Looking at the forecast I think much of my training is going to be indoors this week Better than not being able to train though.
What: swimWhy: Monday is swim dayLast hard: 19/1Last rest: 28/12
Lyrics - yes.
Morning LMH: Enjoy the swim.
morning all, Chicka - hope your feeling better this morningDon - nice pace for the 10 miler, but Gobi often speaks wise words...what - easy 3 or 4why - recoverylast rest - Dec 25thlast hard - Saturdaylyric - not sure I dohave a super day
Gobi, I don't think I would get 65 for 10 miles. I know there is a theory that says train slower, race faster but I have found that does not work for me. When I train at 7mm I will hopefully race at 6:30 mm. Seems to work ok for me. Happy to always take advice from others though
Lyrics, not today.
Still blowing a gale but will have to chuck myself out the door (last chance for a long run as working next weekend)
Hope you don't get blown away, OH!Feeling really stiff and painful today but that's normal. It's not the first time I've taken a tumble and sadly won't be the last either. Nothing feels like a serious injury, which is good. It's just the bruises and the swelling that cause some stiffness. Resting today. Will try a run tomorrrow but may take things a bit easier for the rest of the week.
Luckily I started my training plan 2 weeks early, i. e. I can afford an easy week without the OCD getting all worried about me slacking
What: trying not to feel sorry for myself (bit like chick I guess but for other reasons)! Didn't feel great yesterday with really bad tooth/gum ache, plus ear ache plus tender under my eyes and along my jawline. Went to dentist this morning and the good news is that there doesn't seem to be anything amiss with my teeth; however, a couple of x-rays hinted at sinus trouble, which does seem to tie in with the other symptoms, and probably explains why I ditched yesterday's run and was short of breath on the slightest incline on Saturday's longer effort. Managed 2.15k slowly on the roads this morning.Why: if I am going to run 2k is the minimum. A shame as it is a really nice day and I had planned a longer effort. Sensible head on!
Off to steam myself in the bath. After the paracetamol/iboprufen suggested by the dentist to relieve discomfort. The sinuses will either get better on their own or I may have to resort to the GP next week. All suggestions/ideas on cures most welcome.
morning all, well it was when I started this post..
alehouse, poor you that doesn't sound nice at all
chicka sorry to hear you had a fall, hope all settles down
had an o run at parly Saturday, well slow actually but I really enjoyed it and was more thinking don't let my back get hurt, which it didn't and is still well on the mend!
what: track later
why: its Monday
last hard: parly hill
last easy: yesterday
have a good day all
Healing vibes to the sick and wounded.
Have a good one!
well, got the 18 done but it was tough. Cold and very windy - greylag geese flying backwards and quite a few supply boats sheltering in Kirkwall Bay. More clothing on than ever before when running and still cold.
Didn't get blown away but did get blown into barbed wire and ripped my Montane jacket terminally
Alehouse - X-rays are fairly useless indicators of sinus infection but lots of menthol steaming might help whatever
Sounds a tough run, OH! Shame about the jacket! I don't really know what to look for on the x-rays, but dentist said he could see a clear problem! And yes, steaming is the order of the day. And have menthol!
did 60 miles on TT bike on Saturday - getting used to it now. Did a duathlon on it last week - first time on the road on it and it told!!
15 miles run yesterday.
4k swim this morning - felt good. will do easy 6 mile or so later. ate too much yesterday - Young Paddy's birthday - cake and all that shite. Still training good at moment so it'll shift quick!!
Ale - don't know much about sinuses - although my ignorant medical thoughts are that it should be treatable. The easy spell will help running repairs!!
Weather has been shit but managing to work around it (or occasionally just go and face it!!)
Alehouse Hope all will be well
Chick - hope you are feeling better soon heal soon
What: 1.84 milesWhy: all I was fit forLast Hard: ThatLyrics No But should have got yesterdays
Glad you're not feeling too bad today chickadee.
Sounds as though the training is going well Paddy - what's your next event?
Well done on getting it done OH.
I swam and managed a nice 4 miles with Grace in the dry this afternoon too.
Really terrible driving rain yesterday for me... tough conditions, tough run but enjoyable. Hope you all survived. Let's see what this evening brings. Good luck alehouse and chick
What: Maybe 4 miles recovery. Maybe not.
Why: Tough yesterday. Rest day is programmed, but I'll probably miss a run this week
Lyrics: No. Again.
Time to share one off my "sing list"
When This Lousy Run is Over
(Tune: 'What a friend we have in Jesus')
When this lousy run is over,No more marathons for me,When I get my warm dry clothes on,Oh, how happy I shall be!No more training runs on Sundays,No more putting in for leave,I shall kiss the race organiser,How I'll miss him, how he'll grieve!Amen.
Nice 5 mile mudathon tonight straight after work. Managed to get 3.5 miles XC in semi-darkness then 1.5 miles on the streets to finish. Was lots of fun! 38:13 or so if I remember rightly.
Gobi wrote (see)
Donaldo - does it occur to you that things take time and that avoiding injury may be your problem ?
Gobi, sorry, I don't understand at all what you mean by this. Probably best just to leave it as for 30 years my pattern has been train faster = race faster. Can't teach this old dog new tricks!
Not here, it's not
It was Ok for me. I did the usual 6.6, but added a few loops up and down the road to make it a neat and tidy 7 miles. 7:45m/m average 146HR. Compared with last week that's the same HR, but 15 seconds/mile better. I have the distinct impression that I am in need of pre-base training. B-O-R-I-N-G.
