Friday 6th September 19- Sometimes, just sometimes Maybe more than some of the time

Morning all, should be sleeping.   
What not sure but it's the last day of our holiday
Why see how I feel in a few hours
Last hard Thursday am
Last rest 31/12/16
Have a good Friday all
possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 


  • Morning!

    Lyrics: no 

    What: short run d&d

    Why: hamstring/more cricket

    Cold and wet here so I imagine a fair part of today will be spent in the pavilion whilst waiting for play to commence. The weather was much better than predicted yesterday so could do with more of the same today. 

    Now for the glute strengthening exercises.
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    If it's bad weather we have more chance of a draw at least ale...

    Walked 4 km yesterday

    Will try another short one today.

    Rfj good luck today

    Hope you get home safely wabo. Lmh is today your last day too?

    Have a good one all
  • Morning

    Hope the appointment goes ok RFJ and is not too unpleasant.

    Tea with your friends sounds almost as good as cake emzap. 

    The reduction in the recoveries for the reduced length of the rep half way through was a shock to the system yesterday Ale.  Amazing how fast 2:30 mins go past.  Hope you get another weather surprise today even if it doesn't seem likely at the moment.

    Hope you can make the most of your last holiday day Wabo despite the lack of sleep.

    Good you could get out for a nice run yesterday LMH.  I admit I had to look up what a grockle is. 

    Sounds like you are in the need of the taper Chicksta.  Dropping those intervals won't hurt.

    Intervals went ok yesterday.  3 x 1200 (3 mins) and 3 x 1000 (2:30).  The longer ones were a bit quicker than the shorter ones but at least all quicker than 10k pace which is good for me.   Outside of a race I struggle to run faster than that.

    What: 8ish miles planned for later (work first)
    Why: keeping things going
    Last hard: yesterday
    Last rest: 02.09.

    Lyrics: no
  • Morning.

    Yesterday's lyrics - Waiting For The Sun - The Doors.

    RFJ - I found the prep was far worse than the procedure.

    We had a lovely afternoon yesterday Alehouse and I am similarly hoping for weather that is much nicer than the forecast today.

    Are you travelling home today Wabo? Sorry you had a bad night, do you know why? I've finally started sleeping a bit better - just in time to go home. LOL.

    emzap - yes, last day of the holiday, travelling home tomorrow. Glad you had a nice time with your friends yesterday - someone else can bake you a cake:-)

    You do better than me Hazel - I couldn't get close to 10k pace in training.

    When I got up the Met were forecasting heavy rain from 0800hrs so I set off for a pre breakfast run. It was a bit breezy and chilly but most pleasant to be out. As I walked back along the beach I couldn't see another soul until the last few hundred metres. I so miss being by the sea when I'm not here and I love the wide open spaces and big skies of Norfolk. I need to find a way to spend more time here really.

    What:          easy, good for the soul miles
    Why:           return to reality tomorrow
    Last hard:   managing the in law situation whilst having a break
    Last rest:    27/7

    Lyrics - no.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Morning all
    RFJ - good luck today
    lmh - sounds delightful, safe trip back
    ale - after yesterday, I’m hoping for 3 days of rain..
    Hazel - good repping!
    chick - sometimes the body is trying to tell you something 

    what - eldest moving out so driving to Leeds and unpacking. Running may be a bonus
    why - a year of work and playing being a grown up!
    last rest - possibly today
    last hard - loading the cars (how many shoe bags???)

    Shame your respective holidays are already coming to an end, wabo and LMH.

    LMH: I love being the only person out there when I do my usual early morning runs. So much so that I get a bit cross when I see someone else (usually a cyclist or party folk staggering home).

    Nice interval session, Hazel. Hope work is not too stressful and you can enjoy your run later.

    Dustin: that shoe bag comment made me chuckle :)

    Managed to sleep through until 3:20 this morning which was a nice and welcome surprise. Couldn't get back to sleep and felt OK so I got up to get yesterday's session in

    5 x 1200s - managed 5:02, 4:57, 4:57, 4:52 and 4:55 (the last one required quite a bit of stern self-talk). It was a lovely cool morning, the kind of temps that I dreamt about when I was sweating through my earlier training sessions. Recoveries were a little short of 3mins

    Couldn't get my HR out of the LT pace zone at the beginning - I reckon that must be the fatigue. Glad it's done now.

    What: see above
    Why: OCD doesn't like me to skip a key session
    Last hard: raising that heart rate
    Last rest: 11/8
    Lyrics: no
  • Forgot to say: Fingers crossed today's procedure goes well, RFJ.
  • Well done for getting your session in chicksta. Nice to finish strongly like that.

    Are you doing Leeds and back in a day Dustin? Hope the traffic is kind.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Work then yoga and a bit more decorating.
    Last hard: Wednesday's track
    Lyrics no

    Hope procedure went well RFJ
    No doubt you are well acquainted with shower and toilet today.

    Cricket sounds entertaining but not good for England.

    Sorry I confuse
    We drive home tomorrow
    Off to st Ives today
    Family meal tonight. 
    Rfj good luck today
    Alehouse are you enjoying? We're watching
    Dustin hope drive goes well
    Lmh I didn't have a bad night really, I just couldn't put my book down
    What think it's a Streak saver today
    Why didn't Do it this morning so running out of time

    Last hard yesterday
    Last rest 31/12/16

    Off to pack up now
