Lyrics - If you're feeling low and lost today

Nice day there Blisters.

Sounds as though you enjoyed it RFJ - hope your head isn't too bad this morning.

Still streaking then Pammie?

What:         MLR/dentist
Why:          unexpected day off/lost a filling on Friday
Last hard:   still the ground
Last rest:    24/9

If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.


  • Morning!

    Yesterday's lyrics were "Mack the Knife", Frank Sinatra

    Today's lyrics: familiar but...

    Still raining! Has been since some time on Sunday evening! Due to stop later today.

    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success
  • What: nil

    Why: tapering

    Last hard: Saturday

    Last rest: Monday

    Lyrics: no

    Hope all goes well at dentist LMH

    Have you released the dove yet, Alehouse?

    Damp here but nothing out of usual
  • Morning

    I fear disaster is about to strike. I have that cold is coming feeling in my chest image feeling very very unhappy his morning! Going to nip out once the shops are open to get some vitamins to hopefully perk myself up a bit!

    After yesterdays complete rest I think i'll do 5k easy at lunch just to keep the legs moving.

    What: 5k easy.
    Why: Taper
    Last hard: 16/09
    Last rest: yesterday

    Having a sports massage on saturday which was given to me as a present. Hope this will loosen me up further ready for race day... image

    OPR - fingers crossed for you.

    Slightly quicker efforts with the club last night - effectively 8x400 up and down a well light stretch of road. A hard session which I just about managed! I'm running the efforts reasonably strongly, but my powers of recovery are a bit rusty as Id like to be running this phase a bit quicker (as it's 400m).

    Legs are feeling a bit battered this morning, so just a little dawdle today.

    Have a good day and stay dry.

    last hard: last night 5k (not a  race)

    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭

    lmh so sorry to hear about your fall, hope you heal quickly, not nice coming off your bike and hitting the ground, have done it too  many times myself!

    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can

  • Aternoon

    LMH - Best of luck with dentist - yes still streaking Day 126 today

    OPR Take care

    What: 3.11 miles in the gorge
    Why: felt a bit of off road was needed in the rain
    Last Hard: ages now
    Lyrics Alas no

  • Did 7km on the treadmill in the end as the weather curtailed any chance of doing a run outside.

    Meant to only do 5km but was feeling so good that I couldn't drag myself off!

    Plan is to rest up this evening and tomorrow day time. Thinking of doing a swim session tomorrow evening depending on if this cold has progressed at all image

  • Hope it comes to nothing OPR. If you don't have a regular sports massage I'd be wary of having one the day before the race. If it has to be then let the masseur know to take it very easy on you.

    Dentist was better than the run! He just stuck a temporary filling on, no injections, no drilling, no worries. Just hope it holds until I get the referral to the specialist dentist through. Ankle was fine on my run but left knee was grumbly and I noticed as I started to tire (which was far too early) that I was running on the outside of my right foot - most noticeable on any sort of downward slope. When I concentrated on putting it down correctly I developed an ache in my lower back and hip so I think I must have twisted as I fell on Sunday and put myself out slightly. Hopefully it will sort itself out. I had to cancel my sports massage on Monday as there was no way she'd have been able to work on my right leg but am booked in this coming Monday.

    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • OPR:  I would second LMH re massage...indeed I would save it for after the race. The first time I saw my present QofP (Queen of Pain, appropriately named) I could barely walk the next day.

    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success
  • Good reminders for me to book a pre-emptive strike with the Fizzy O.
    Lots of damaged and slowly recovering folk around these parts at the moment, so best wishes to all of you/us.

    A dry day where I was today, and just got home in time for it to start raining. Normally I hate going out in the rain, but I could see from the clouds that this forecast was going one direction only. So, a pleasant 6.5 miles in mild rain ensued. The last half mile was at 7:20m/m carrying a large marrow.

    Guess what's for tea?

  • Tom.Tom. ✭✭✭ is it 3.25 miles to the allotment?
  • I was just enjoying a damp run and saw some painted rocks on the footpath. Wondering why they were there, it was only as I passed that I realised that they were overgrown courgettes, and clearly placed there for anyone to take home.

    It must have looked slightly odd though. The only person I did see was so engrossed in her mobile phone conversation that I could have been running naked and carrying a pig and she wouldn't have noticed.

    Blisters:I live in Lincolnshire, the produce growing centre of the universe. I few years I got caught short on a long run and dived into a field of cabbages, and used handy leaves to clear up my shortcomings. as I ran out of the field I saw a notice which read "grown by Lincs Farm Produce for Asda" I only shop at Tesco!
