Lyrics: What are you gonna do

Hey Blisters, welcome back

    Morning Chick,

    Blimming hot  here as well 17 degrees already!

    Hope day two of work goes well your break went so quickly.How is hubby doing?

    Blisters: Goodness me hope all is good with  you!
    Benjy: Yes a good month already  I have beaten  all the previous months this year:-)

    What: Running
    Why: Because I can
    Last hard: sleeping I was lucky to get 3 hours!
    Lyrics:Not sure so a no
    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.
  • Morning.

    Yesterday's lyrics - Run On by Moby.

    Hello Blisters.

    No idea I'm afraid Rob - I think that the effects of altitude training dissipate relatively quickly from an oxygen carrying perspective a quick Google provides lots of links.

    Breezy here this morning and only a high of 21C forecast - I'll swap chicksta and Poppy!

    What:        easy miles
    Why:          taper
    Last hard:  working out what to do in the taper - one day I'll get there (I hope)
    Last rest:   4/5

    Lyrics - a myriad of possibilities so that will be a no from me.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Lyrics: familiar...so no.

    Woke up to bright sunshine but it has now clouded over. Supposed to be sunny later but won't reach the dizzy heights of 26/27 of the last few days.

    What: short run and Pilates style work

    Why: Tuesday

    Hope to see you on here again later, Blisters: I'm sure there must be a story to tell!
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Morning all
    Sorry Rob, I don't think I'm experienced enough about altitude training to give a decent reply...
    Did I see Blisters pop in? 
    What - not sure
    Why - have to collect some water bottles for our club race this evening so will miss training, hopefully can squeeze some lonely speed work in afterwards (I will)
    last rest - 12/05
    last hard - 12, 10 and 10 hilly/trail runs this weekend
  • WelshpoppyWelshpoppy ✭✭✭
    9.11 miles for me this morning.

    Dustin Enjoy the speed work at lunchtime.
    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.

    Cool and misty on the Dorset / Wilts border, 15C.

    Blisters: Another blast from the past not seen since Henley 2013!

    WP: You pack in some miles

    What: In the pool at 0800 for 1.5K, club social run tonight
    Why: Time to get wet
    Last Hard; Just getting in the pool,

    The good news is that in three swim sessions my 100m pace has fallen from 2.52mins to 2.25 mins, thats just a matter on concentrating on technique. Not sure I will ever get back to cruising along at 2mins / 100M but might well get to around 2.10 - 2.15 with some work.

    Lyrics: One day I will know them or maybe not
  • StrayceltStraycelt ✭✭✭
    Flying visit. Nice miles WP. Ale...gently does it. LMH hope you enjoy. Nice balance DD
    What: I'm with Dustin...club tonight but...
    Why: Lack of motivation/tapering for holiday :-)
    Last hard: Sunday
    Last Rest: Yesterday
    Lyrics: Unsure so no.
  • I'm hoping the weather will perk up for next week.

    Do you have a date for your scans Alehouse?

    Enjoy whatever you end up doing Dustin.

    I think you may surprise yourself with the swimming DD.

    Where are you off to next SC?

    Not a great run for me. Slow, stomach issues and then one of those gut wrenching ankle turns where you can't even weight bear on it immediately afterwards. Managed to walk it off and then run the two miles home, have iced it and think it's ok...........
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • chickstachicksta ✭✭✭
    Oh dear LMH :( - fingers crossed no harm done. +1 for stomach issues today

    Nice miles again, poppy. Hubby is doing fine, thanks for asking. He hates the heat even more than I do. It was 24 degrees by 8am and it's now over 30 coupled with a strong easterly wind. Yikes.

    Hope the short run goes well, ale.

    Enjoy your respective club runs Dustin and SC.

    What: only 6 miles
    Why: stomach issues and stitch
    Last hard: today
    Last rest: Sunday

    Quick pop in, things getting hectic now.

    Spent weekend driving to Kent (i.e. sitting in traffic).  Stopped off in High Wycombe and did Wycombe Rye parkrun in 25:38.  Running there and back made 9km in total.

    8km this morning after dropping back the hire car.  Now trying to work out where to fit in the rest of the workouts this week.

    Have a lovely day all.
  • StrayceltStraycelt ✭✭✭
    Warm weather training on Costa del Sol to get fit for Swansea half 24th June LMH :-) Would like to present Cardio with a safe and complete sub 1.40 so I get signed off for another year in July :-). 

  • If anyone can I'm sure it's you SC.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
