It is not a fail, I really wish we could stop using that word. You just misread the email.
Using the f* word just sets you up to be depressed and feel crappy about yourself. You had a fine easy run and running intervals in the rain and dark, who needs that this time of year?

Long day at work + late to the train + raining when biking from train = no training + coffee + cinnamon buns! I call it a sucess not a failure ;)

Want to run or do some other training together tomorrow?

Let's get back to planning that vacation in Spain. ;-)

Coffee and cinnamon buns is only a "fail" if you have aspirations to become World Champion (of which you already have two in the club anyway). Other deadlies sometimes have other priorities too...

Wait a minute, are you saying Thierry and Annika don't eat cinnamon buns?
Hey, I haven't had a cinnamon bun since.....when I was in Sweden.

A trip to Crown Bakery in Worcester could fix that - or even closer, Kaffestugan at the Scandinavian Living Center, Newton (Saturdays 10am- 3pm).

Some of you make it sound like failure is a bad thing.

Cinnamon buns are OK - but not as a substitute to training.

Ok, ok, so failure was a strong word. I was bummed and disappointed in myself, especially since I could have done them alone. And world champions do eat cinnamon buns, I've seen it myself. But yes, all in moderation and combined with fun training :)
