Lyrics - I carry madness

What:              MLR
Why:               marathon training
Last hard:       looking at the forecast for the weekend
Last rest:        28/12

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


  • Second in! I must be up early.

    What: work then hopefully 6 miles and swim

    Why: snapping out of laziness!

    Lyrics: I think so..

    What's MLR LMH??
  • Morning!

    MLR=medium long run. A lot of people feel that it is not just the long run that is the key to a good marathon, but the medium one of around 3/4 of the long one: a long run of 20 miles at the weekend and a mid-week one of 15, for example.

    What: 30 mins or so this evening.
    Why: work gets in the way during the day!

    Lyrics: not today.

    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success
  • Half awake and read that as 6 mile "6 mile swim" Dibs! image

    What: possibly run with group at 6 but on call and more lifeboat training at 7

    last hard: Monday 

    last rest Sunday

    lyrics: no 

    still windy

    Yesterdays lyrics: 'Only you' by Alison Moyet. I know other artists/bands have songs with the title 'Only you'.

  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭

    What: a whole day walking, not sure how far

  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭

    afternoon all

    not been well all week so I had nothing much to report, did park run Saturday, 26.49 and 10 hilly miles sunday, nothing since!

    I got in to the prudential 100 mile bike ride, oh gosh!

    chickadee, that's funny chasing the cyclist!

    emzap sounds amazing, enjoy!

    lyrics  no

    what: have just decided nothing again

    why: still not right

    last hard: sunday

    last easy all week

    have a good day all

    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • I have run to bend 4 up Alpe d' huez and people looked mighty upset when I ran passed them.
  • Excellent, Gobi image  bet they all saw the funny side of being overtaken by a runner!!

  • I must admit, when I'm riding uphill I often think that I'd rather be running it!

    Hope you're soon feeling better Wabo.

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

    Greetings all

    Take care

  • Evening!

    Thought I'd run a bit harder tonight so headed out and did 7 miles in 48:48.  Quite enjoyed it, worked very hard at times.

    Lyrics, probably not.

  • Evening

    What 9 I think

    Why forgot my garmin

    Lyrics no

    7:0? Is a lie in

    Ended up hurrying out the door this evening and forgot to swasp swatches but someone in my group proclaimed 9 miles in 1:04 which included a few bits of doubling back and hanging around for the back markers to catch up. I'm enjoying the change from my normal solitary runs so will put the form in this week and become a club runner.

  • What: 3mile run. 1.5km swim

    Why: post 4 day break

    Still feel under the weather.. Tired out easily and ache.

    Gobi- usually I'm fine with early mornings. I think a week if sleep dep has caught up with me!

    Lol to everyone thinking 6 mile swim!! I wish!!

    Hopefully early morning run tomorrow. Won't get a a chance otherwise! Busy busy
  • 5 miles with group this evening
