Monday 10th April 2017 I'd like to paint your face up in the sky


Lyrics: I'd like to paint your face up in the sky

What: something later this morning, but will have to see how the legs feel

Why: Tired. Was up late watching the Masters.

There's a clue in there somewhere!
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    what - easy 5
    why - recovery
    last rest - 6/12
    last hard - Saturday
  • Morning.

    Yesterday's lyrics - Sunny Sunday by Joni Mitchell.

    Another bright and sunny one here though chillier than yesterday.

    I'm already fighting the 'should I just do one ore long run' urge. I hate tapering. Busy today and tomorrow which should help though. I was fortunate enough to get a lovely purple Garmin 230 for my birthday and I have to say I love it, it's so light after the brick of a 310xt and very easy to use.

    What:           easy miles
    Why:            damage limitation/taper
    Last hard:    not doing a long run today
    Last rest:     25/2

    Lyrics - no.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Looking forward to an easy week: will be about 40-45miles. I'll gain nothing from another long run: 3x1 mile tomorrow, strides Thursday & around 13-14 on Sunday (miles not eggs). Padded out with 4-6 easy Mon/Wed/Fri/Sat

    Morning again!

    What: 35 minutes at a gentle pace, although my legs didn't want to know.

    Why: tired, legs are struggling. Suspect it is from increasing the core work a little. And it is so cold this morning: 8.5 degrees, strong wind and a some icy rain. Regretted having no gloves or hat! What a difference a day or two makes!
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

     Nice parkrunning, SC. Are you allowed hard running again?

    Well done on coming 1st lady, LMH. How amazing - you nearly broke the course record without really trying. Quality!!

    It's turned grim here too, ale. Wanted to got for a swim only to find the pool shut for maintenance. And I was overjoyed as I turned into the virtually empty car park thinking, GREAT, I'll have a lane to myself :D

    Of course I then remembered faintly that there was a notice stuck somewhere in the changing rooms telling everyone that the pool would be closed this week. DOH ...

    What: 4 miles lunchtime run on the treadie
    Why: had to do something and luckily there was a bit of spare kit in my desk drawer
    Last hard: having to change plans. I'm not one bit flexible :)
    Last rest: 17/2
    Lyrics: no

    Chicksta: Run to HR so means building base mileage. Nothing over 160 so happy with that although would love a sub 20 :-) Always good to keep spare kit at work.
  • Base is under rated SC.

    I had no idea chicksta, if I had I might no have eased back when I realised that a PB wasn't happening or if I hadn't have had to check slightly when the herd of deer galloped across our path with both us and them in full flight - it was something to see (and only a little scary). Glad you had the kit and could adapt.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    What: about to head to running club
    Why: it's Monday, I'm not ill or injured and I'm here
    last hard: being ill
    Lyrics: nope

    Not feeling too bad after yesterday's long run and walk.  Let's see if the legs can do the intervals tonight though...

    Have a great evening all.
  • Evening

    LMH: Sounds like you love your new Garmin :)
    What: 6 miles
    Why: all I had time for
    Last hard: getting up out of bed
     But got the all clear my foot was just tendonitis and not gout so that made me happy:-)

    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.
  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭
    Evening again

    11 km in total including 2x800, 2 x 600, 4x400m (off 200 m recoveries) followed by 4x100 m off 100 m recoveries.  I can feel it now after yesterday's run...

    Glad that it;s not gout WP, my Dad suffers from it  and it's not nice.

    Have a lovely evening all

    gained an extra place by the looks of it by virtue of a DQ at yesterdays race, a few people have been DQ'd on the results for wearing headphones (clearly stated in all race material and at start with signs / leaflets and verbal.

    5.55m club run tonight

    Good session Emzap

    Take care all
  • Rest over weekend seems to have done some good: 7 this morning up Wideford Hill, swim this afternoon then 5k Loop with Monday evening loop group
    why: because I can
    last hard: last week
    last rest: Sunday and no running over weekend
    Lyrics - not a scoobie

    That's one of the many advantages of the sea Chicksta;)
