Friday 15th February 2019 - I see no right, I see no wrong

Morning.

Lyrics - I see no right, I see no wrong

That does sound better RFJ. Are you enjoying it so far? Has your rearranged appointment come through yet?

What:           short and easy/gym for a new programme
Why:            legs are shot/nice PT offered to do one for me for free and this afternoon is when she's available
Last hard:    staying positive
Last rest:     27/1
If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Morning!

    Valentine's Day's lyrics were, "Zing! Went the strings of my heart", Judy Garland amongst others, Sinatra included. 

    Lyrics: no

    What: short and easy

    Why: legs are shot. Well I hope they are not, but niggles are being managed. Hope yours are fresher by Sunday, LMH

    Morning all
    Had to laugh Wabo - when you said the OH had scraped the car , I thought you meant he'd driven it into something !!
    RFJ - echo that, we had about 15 last night, hill pyramids. I joined in. There was me planning 2 easy, ended up 6 with 20 minutes of hill climbs

    What - easy lunchtime
    Why - mini taper: 20 mile race on Sunday
    last rest - 25 days
    last hard - probably yesterday

  • I doubt they will be Alehouse but I'm fine with it, I was never expecting much from the race and if I'm honest I'd rather be doing a long run but it will be social and a bit more of an effort than I'd make on my own. Very cold out here this morning.

    That is a very mini taper Dustin but I'm guessing you aren't actually racing on Sunday?
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Morning again!

    Very cold here, also, LMH...but beautiful down by the river. Noisy, too: birds! Always think of Stickless on a day like this! Didn't see any kingfishers though!

    With a decent warm up and down Sunday will still be long, LMH.

    Enjoy your 20 Dustin!

    morning all
    Dustin I did typo yesterday and change from scrapped! He scraped it again today.... Run well Sunday
    alehouse, ah stickless I miss stickless posts! Like you my legs are feeling a bit shot! Big weekend coming up I better be careful
    LMH, enjoy the day, sorry your legs are feeling shot as well!
    Pops happy anniversary for yesterday
    I did 30 miles last week do my legs know it!!!
    My OH turned up with dinner and chocs last night what a darling!!!
    What: 45 mins later with a couple of 12 min efforts chucked in
    why: schedule
    last hard: yoga last night, ridiculous stiff old body!!!
    last rest: 31/12/16
    club race tomorrow afternoon, 2hr 15 min run sunday, will aim to get close to 13 miles, more like 12 though I reckon
    have a great weekend all

    Afternoon all,

    LMH - The football is not too bad. It's all workmates, so isn't too competitive. Good bit of interval training and just doing something for an hour!
    Ale - hope legs are OK!
    Wabo - Good going and take it easy!
    Dustin - enjoy the mini-taper!

    What:Rest day for me today.
    Why: Legs have a nice gentle ache to them where I can feel I've done something productive. Done something energetic for 5 days running so a good day to rest.
    Last hard: mmmm
    Last rest: Today!
    Lyrics: Nope

    P.S. Crunchie Friday (if we still do that!)


  • chickstachicksta ✭✭✭
    Haha, Alex - brilliant idea to bring back Crunchie Friday!

    Hope your shot legs recover, ale and LMH.

    I always think of stickless when I see kingfishers. Fond memories. Hope she's alright. And I miss sharkie.

    Wabo: Fantastic build-up in mileage. Be careful though. Ramping up mileage AND intensity is brining you dangerously close to injury territory.

    Dustin: Will you be racing or is it a test for MP? Friend of mine from our sub 3:30 WhatsApp Group is doing Bramley as well. She said she'd run the last 5 @ MP.

    Today I had one of those runs that were pure joy. Spring has sprung and we had 12 degrees, brilliant sunshine and no wind. I knew it was going to be a quiet day so I slept in this morning (when it still was minus temps by the way) and took the opportunity to nip out for a lunchtime run. Loved it sooo much :D

    Volunteering at parkrun tomorrow. May run before or just run the course on my own afterwards. Need to keep my legs fresh for Sunday. Weather forecast is perfect. Looks like I can risk to rock up in vest and shorts.

    What: 7 miles with 6*12 sec uphill Sprints and 6*100m strides
    Why: schedule and opportunity - there's a perfect little park near work with an 80m long ramp for uphill bits and a 100m track for the strides.
    Last hard: Tourist dodging but even they couldn't dent my mood today
    Last rest: 23/1
    Lyrics: no
  • GobiGobi ✭✭✭

    What: easy 4 miles d&d am - PM ? life is causing challenges

    Why: see above

    Last hard:  Tuesday

    Last rest: 31st October

    Lyrics: No

    Talking the weekend as I may or may not be around - few hours on the bike tomorrow assuming it is dry and then for the first time in 7 years I am doing 21 miles on Sunday with the 2nd 10 around 2.51 marathon pace. Pace making is fun but I normally refuse to go over 13 miles so this could be interesting.

  • I hope it's nothing too stressful Gobi. That's going to be a long run for you isn't it? Hope it goes well.

    Lovely to hear that you're having such a good day chicksta.

    I doubt I'll get much in before or after Alehouse, the venue and company aren't conducive. It was beautifully still and bright when I went out for my run - but still cold. Legs had a bit more bounce in them which was nice (though still slower than I'd expect to be now).

    He sounds like a keeper Wabo:-) 

    Alex - people always seem to get injured when playing football - hence my concern. I think we can always thank Crunchie it's Friday!
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Thanks for the birthday wishes!

    Sitting on a spiky ball sounds pretty painful Ale (peers around for soft cushion...).  Kingfishers are lovely to see if you do - beautiful colours.   

    LMH: my planned half is about 1.5 hours by train from here which is just about okay. 

    Chicksta: the LT intervalls were just the thing after a morning of work stress.  Rather those than V02 max!  Good run this lunchtime for you. 

    Happy Anniversary for yesterday WP.  Well done for being stubborn and not walking.

    Alex + 1 to be careful with the football.  Enjoy the rest of your day off of energetic stuff.  What is a Crunchie Friday..? 

    Rest / recovery day today after 2 sessions in a row RFJ? 

    Dustin: good perspective on Wabo's OH scraping the car - didn't notice that one!

    Good luck to all racers for the weekend.

    What: recovery 4
    Why: loosen up the legs after yesterday's LT efforts and it is so nice out.
    Last hard:  pace discipline yesterday - got it right for once though
    Last rest: 8.2.

    Lyrics: hmm vaguely familiar but no.

    Listened to all the advice and only did a gentle mile tonight. Lots of stretching and rubbing of the right calf. Tai chi in morning. Hopefully it will come to nothing. I think just lots of miles over the last couple of weeks is the cause.

    Sensible Wabo

    Off to the Griffin, OH!

    LMH- haven't been out this far since Jan 2012 in my last ultra where I ran a silky 3.40 50km on a broken leg - oops
  • Morning Swim (400m). Short jog round to Yoga
    Why: parkrun tomorrow then off for Kinloss-Lossie HM on Sunday
    (quite tight for ferry back home after race)
    Last hard: Yoga's not getting any easier!
    Last rest: yesterday
    Lyrics: no

    Enjoy a pint (or 2) of Hydes AH :)
  • alehousealehouse ✭✭✭
    Holts, OH. Then Marstons in the Oak! Easy parkrun and enjoy K to L! Does the race have an RAF connection?

    Hopefully a gentle parkrun here after two easy days.

  • It's run from Kinloss barracks to Lossie (ex-) airbase and was originally run by servicemen.
    Morray Running club runs event these days and no direct lik with bases other than start and finish lines.

    Tried to source Robinsons Trouper in Alness Morrisons after seeing it as a vendor on Robbie's website.
    Alas none to be seen.
