Todays lyrics: 'And just as my eyes start seeing.'
Off out now
Yesterday's lyrics - Long Road To Hell by Avicii
You'd need a boat here birks - we've had torrential rain for the last few hours.
What: unsureWhy: weatherLast hard: listening to the rain as I tried to sleepLast rest: 2/7
Lyrics - familiar but not an outright yes.
Dull and warm here. Think your rain is heading our way.
What: 7.5 mile run
Why: base building + Fat loss
Run felt good today, I feel like my form has improve just by relaxing.
Also a brain wave.. wondering if my hip pain isn't coming from my hips, but my oblique/core muscles. I side stretched after my run and felt it at the point on the hip bone where I have trouble....... hmmmmm
Ale: Lisbon... jealous. Cobbles are a killer for me to!
Emz: Yea I have incorporated a lot of core work into my training to. It is such a mystery. Everyone I have seen can't really work out why it hurts so high up. I have sent a few emails to my orthopaedic mentors.... time to suck up the ego!
Anyone been watching the ITU triathlon series? A M A Z I N G
The weather here has been biblical - 24C with torrential rain (sitting in a stationary car was like being in a car wash), hail and now thunder and lightening. I did my first ever Insanity class at the gym - absolutely great, and this is from someone who doesn't do classes. Great functional strength and cardio workout, I'd recommend it to anyone. Finished off with 30 minutes on the treadie whilst waiting for Mark.
Hope the toe is ok emzap.
Have a great break chickadee.
Miss A must have your genes to make her so fast Alehouse.
Hope you can get to the bottom of it Dibs.
The Lanrick Challenge - loved it! 12K of fighting my way through muddy holes, deep rivers, forests and over 40 obstacles. Such good fun. It was just like the national XC but with wee added bits in there for a challenge! It certainly wasn't the 'ultimate test' they billed it as - I was beaming all the way!
The tagline of the event was 'Can you beat the Marines?'. I was given the opportunity as I started with 6 of them - they tore off at the start but my old head hung well back and took it steady. Even after the first 3/4 obstacles, I had gone past a couple of them and caught them all quite quickly, beating them by at least 20 minutes. So the answer to the tagline was 'Oh Yeah!'.
Although the course was good, the organisation of the event was shocking - they got their timings wrong I was in the timing tent trying to help them out. All groups were late starting - it needed chip timing and for £50 entry, it really should have been.
I might end up doing it again next year because I suspect I might have been the fastest today - results will probably be a while though.
Was stewarding at the Baton Relay. Soaked from about 1.30pm onwards. Still raining now !Warm rain though !!
don: Well done for today mate.
Catch up time.
