  • Hello world. Sorry to hear about the miss on the job Ollie. Add it to your experience file. LMH, Alehouse, WP, Wabo, take care..! dIBS, HARD IS GOOD Stray-packed cLendar! Dustin- busy bee! Er, for me, a couple of packed days (organising trains &…
  • Lyrics? No idea. Probably no idea even when I'm told. That's the way it is with me. Emzap: Your experience ranks like it's verging on torture. A day of your time totally wasted, with a the promise if a repeat. As to the flat tyre, you disappoint m…
  • Afternoon. Dibs, the heavier training always makes you feel heavier and slower. For a month or so it can seem counter-intuitive. The others have made solid suggestions too. I'm not a  trainer or fizz, but I do listen to people with credentials. Ly…
  • Lyrics no. Pammie, great to see you back in the (damp) shoes. I always found running three days per week harder to achieve than doing five. It was a guilt thing. On 5 it was a daily routine. Have I run today? No? Then I MUST get out there. At the m…
  • Grrr, and sympathies LMH. I recall one XC race in school grounds/adjacent parkland and a group had a medium sized dog that was running both left and right. We were racing down a slippy, muddy incline and I just hurdled the dog at the last moment. …
  • Morning! Lyrics, yes to this classic. Running not in today's plan. We'll see if I need to. Cycling is the usual Saturday, but cautious group leaders cancelled everything. My turbo trainer gets set up in the garage. It's not at all warm. Spent 1 ho…
  • Gobi, it must be hard pace making when it the pace is just abnormal to you usual one. I could do clockwork pacing to 5 minutes outside the time I had originally targeted. Besides that I think I've only ever run one good race. I was at home all day…
  • Why is the telly news so infatuated with Trumpton. It's not the UK. As I see it, the buffoon will just puff away. They really ought to pay more attention to the local vote result that we dropped ourselves into. Mind you, I'm saying that, but I get t…
  • Hello everyone! Miserable grey day here. Damp, turning wet, and getting colder. Hypothermia weather. Had to get to hospital appointment for 2pm. Decided that cycling would be horrible. So I took 2 steps then ran the whole way. In full leather coat a…
  • I really should NOT be browsing this thread. Apart from teaching Crashie how to do it properly, there have been repercussions. I have been banned by my family from serious race entries, certainly this year. It's not looking good for the future eit…
  • Happy Birthday Meldy, not long until the Bus Pass now. Don't worry, I'll save a seat for you.
  • AOH, that sounds more like an aggressive paint blast shot gun than a weather forecast. Gobi. For a broken man you are holding the scraps together Ok. Dustin: A training group like that, and you'll fit right in. There's bound to be a rival to jus…
  • RFJ Thanks, in many ways. Sorry for the negative brain dump. I know I sound like a wimp, and this is intended to be a focussed training forum. It's a tough time of year, just judge from the lack of runners that you see out there. When you see anot…
  • Ale: hope the tooth gets fixed quickly. LMH: I noticed that sportsshoes dot com had DS Trainers on massive discount (ladies only!). I think it was that on line supplier. Dustin: I knew someone would mention progress. Mine is "progressing" in relati…
  • Lyrics, yes. Back to work, implies I went somewhere. Nope, stuck at home on laptop. I went out for a run again. Twice in two days, it's a STREAK! It didn't feel like a streak, more of a plod around the hamster wheel. 6.6 miles at 8:25 m/m. I kno…
  • If I were 9 stone something I'd be significantly shorter. Lyrics? I'm sure that they are topical, and deeply thought through. I actually ran AS WELL today. I know. I know. It's starting to smell like training. I've still got to cancel my Ironman…
  • Somewhat complicated, but congratulations to Dustin and extended family. Happy New Year to all of you, may your dreams come true. Lyrics seem somewhat appropriate, just from the title. I think that the weather has a heavy hangover too. It's rather…
  • Great idea Booo, you have started the brilliant MeFace trend. CARRY ON....Goblin...
  • Wooden legs...  
  • You can't be serious?  
  • AOH Technical words. Is it anything to do with concrete?  I assume not. For me. 3 mile hike march to/from church. Nice sing along wedding. Daughter incommunicative 16 YO. Walk/hike 6 mile up and down a drover's track. Didn't know the route. It w…
  • After much over-analysis I decided to stay on the urban pathways. Choosing clothes was another challenge entirely. Managed it OK though, without resorting to the Dustin Hard Man look. 8 miles done at a conservative 8:25 m/m pace. Gloves, hat, long…
  • Looking at the frost, the forecast, the sunshine. Trying to work out how to get out of town and onto rural soft paths. Bike? er not on frosty roads. Turbo trainer? It lives in the sub zero garage, so no.
  • 20 miles cycled. The hands were OK with that distance, and the deliberately gentle choice of route. Recovery's  a pain in the arse. Nice day though.
  • Morning Postie. Lyrics, no surprise. Activities? I have always believed that Boxing Day is for participating in sport at a local level. Unlike last year, I'm not going for an open water swim in the lake. Shame. However, the sun is shining and my…
  • From the relative silence it appears that everybody has prioritised their day correctly. Well done. Lyrics, yeah, obvious. Singer? Er, I sang it last night, and I anticipate that everyone else has had a go as well. Family walk this afternoon. S…
  • As predicted... 1.6 miles gentle jog to church. Lung exercise? As a bass member of the choir, that's a yes. See you on the next thread....
  • Morning What? Probably get my traditional run to and from Church, either side of midnight. If I'm awake. Lyrics? Annoyingly, yes.  
  • Good luck and fortune to Alun WP AOH, back from Scandinavia so quickly? Or was it Iceland, I suppose it depended on the gust. Blimmin good mileage! Olli, just on a  streak, I see. Exactly the opposite here. I felt guilty, and persuaded myself out th…
  • Congratulations and commiserations, take them as you feel appropriate. Well done to any of you who went out there in horrid weather. Down here in the "nearly" South West it was a lovely day to be honest. For some reason I didn't feel up for it. Di…
