Todays lyrics:With a fire in my bones and the sweet taste of kerosene
What:5M Steady in pouring rain and it was cold.
Why: I enjoy it.
I see Seb Coe is bringing out another Autobiography in early November.
Need to catch up again.
Great to see you Stickless - I've been thinking of you quite a lot and hoping that it wasn't the PD stopping you running that was keeping you away.
What: long drive, long dayWhy: at a conference in BirminghamLast hard: reining myself in yesterdayLast rest: 12/10
Lyrics - no.
morning all, Stickless, lovely to hear from you again, and its good to have a plan!what - club night, not sure what the schedule says, but some form of speedworkwhy - its Tuesdaylast rest - fridaylast hard - saturdayno from me on the words...
MorningCurrently nursing an almighty cold/chest infection/bout of man flu!Naturally being a man i genuinely feel like i'm on my death bed.Managed to do half hour on the bike yesterday follwed by some leg resistance work so throw in the fact i'm walking like John Wayne today and i'm quite a picture!
What: RestWhy: ILLNESS (can you tell i'm angry?)Last hard: Last Thursdays spin/swimLast rest: SundayLyrics: Yes
What: Nothing.Why: Didn't make it to the gym this morning, for no good reason.Last hard: Yesterday's run from the Asics store was about 5km. I went with intermediate but they set off so fast I ended up straggling behind, but quite a way ahead of 'beginners'. There's not much lighting around Hyde Park so it was slightly miraculous we all managed to meet up at the end.Last rest: Thursday/today.
Hi Stickless. Oh dear onepaceracer, lemsip, orange juice etc etc. Lyrics no.
Good to hear from you Stickless: keep posting!
What: nowt! Trying not to think about when I might be able to do something! Op tomorrow! Not a moment too soon!
First time on these threads. Forgive me if I don't "get it".
What? Club night.
Why? First marathon around the corner.
Last hard: Saturday's 17 miler
Last rest: Sunday.
Lyrics: Say it loud, Say it clear. You can listen as well as you hear.
stickless: how great to hear from you! Like LMH I was quite worried about you. LMH: another confidence-building run - just when you need it. Nice!OPR: get well soon - 'tis the season for colds.
alehouse: fingers crossed for your op tomorrow
Hiya Run Wales. The thing with the lyrics is you either say yes or no but you don't reveal them if you know them and you are not supposed to post another song's lyrics either .

RW Croeso!Where's your marathon?
alehouse: but all goes well tomorrow
OPR annoying when Illness gets in the way isn't it
Chickadee Good that you are getting back into it
thanks for the welcome. So for lyrics, I should have said "nope" as i've no idea where the lyrics in the OP came from.
Doing Preston Guild Marathon on 28th. My first. Never raced more than 10 miles before. Target is a moving feast. Keeps fluctuating between an over-ambitious sub-4.... to a more realistic four-and-a-half. Have struggled to do long runs at 4hr 30min pace... but did an 18 miler on Saturday at 9:22/min (and that included 4 stationary minutes eating a Snickers and drinking water - subtract that and I can argue for a 3:59 race)... so now I'm getting over-optimistic again!
Good luck for your 1st RW
A sunny afternoon so no excuse not to get out - 10 miles done which I enjoyed - 1st medium run since marathon
Alehouse That should have read "hope all goes well tomorrow"(still playing with Dragon Naturally Speaking at work )
Alehouse - what time do you have to go in?
OPR - just rest up if you feel that bad - it will pass more quickly.
Welcome RW - it's your first marathon, it will be a PB! The first 13 miles should feel too easy, the next 7 as though you're working a little and then you throw everything you have left at it. Much better to finish feeling strong and keen to beat your time in your next marathon than to haul yourself over the line hating it.
OH - that's a good run. Sounds as though the mojo has returned.
chickadeee - what's next for you?
A day shut inside meant I really fancied a run after driving home but I resisted, don't want to leave my race on the trails this week.
Good to hear from you Stickless and welcome to Run Wales
Was not around yesterday but thanks for all the comments regarding my PB, Sorry TR that I did not recognise you, I was in a world of my own on Sunday morning.
Rest day here
one of my fav songs, second tune on my running playlist
just got back from a steady 4 miler
maybe should also say my first time on the lyrics thread, often look/lurk, but todays the first time i've known the answer!!
I seldom know the answer Adam - don't let it stop you from joining in!
Welcome to the newcomers! Adam: what LMH says. Run Wales: if I am right you have done a bit of running in a previous life!
Tom: where are you? Hopefully we have upset you and you are in a mood: I trust it is nothing worse!
LMH: a neighbour is giving me a life to Chester at 7.20 and then I will do a bit of shopping before catching a train and bus to arrive for 11.30. Trying to make it into a little adventure!
Croeso RunWales and Adam get a proper name Richardson the sixth. (wink)
Nope to the lyrics.
Frustrated with my work schedule, but even more frustrated with what is promising to be a pulled mini-muscle or stringy bit (ligament?) at the top end of me bum. Clearly I've done a bit too much too quickly. Annoyed. But I've not been getting out regularly enough and swimming clearly doesn't count.

Evening!.... Welcome to the newcomers! Adam: what LMH says. Run Wales: if I am right you have done a bit of running in a previous life! content abridged....
I think I might have chosen a username that is quite generic. I've not had a previous username or anything, and I'd be surprised if our paths have ever crossed. I think your radar is a bit off, alehouse. Perhaps too much time in the alehouse!
Lovely to see so many of the old crowd still here and running, and thank-you for the welcome backs.
Tom - Hereward - oooh yes. Not this year for me though.
LMH and others - I don't know that I can quite blame the PD, except inasmuch as I find doing the day job harder than ever, so that flogging myself out the door when I am tired or making a day even longer by adding an hour's run to the front of it is something I'm just not very good at. I don't think anyone has any very objective way of comparing energy levels with what they were a year ago, but I'm very confident mine are a lot lower.
So today, I'm afraid, typical. Intended to run in to work, had to change that plan in order to stop by GP's, didn't run in, got caught at work ended up staying late and finishing the job when I got home. Only just finished supper. Next chance for a run Fri. am. Stairs. Again. This time sticking to the Plan (one step at a time, slower, and go for 10 reps (250m).
Still, if you don't do the run, you don't cane yourself afterwards. That's bad mental manners.
