What: 17 miles in the cold light of dawn, well it was only 21CWhy: need some mileslast Hard: YesterdayLast Rest: Thursday
Morning! Yes this thread was first, but didn't spot it!
LMH's lyrics sounded appropriate...looks rather chilly out. But no, don't know them. And don't know sweep's either.
Off to watch local parkrun and have a bit of a walk.LMH: wound is much better and mobility is improving. Inevitably getting a few niggles in other areas when I walk, or after. ONly to be expected. Re prostate, a decision will be made in the next 3 to 4 weeks about what will happen: and a don't think anything will happen until after Christmas at the earliest.
Anybody racing this weekend?
Was going to say where's Paddy, but had a nice email from him.
I didn't see this when I started mine either - we were probably typing at the same time.
Cold and foggy start to the day here.
Alehouse - sounds like mostly good news, as you say, niggles after exercising are to be expected. You be careful if it's slippery out there today. Seems like a long time to wait for a decision regarding prostrate treatment, hopefully that's a good sign.
I've been missing Paddy too - and AF who made a very brief reappearance.
DD - it's going to be such a shock to your system when you move back!
What: an easy run of some as yet indeterminate length Why: I want to and I think I can but won't know for sure until I try Last hard: 17/11 Last rest: 23/11
Lyrics - no.
Nothing to apologise for sweep - always good to have people willing to start the thread.
Oh dear Tom - any idea what aggravated it? I'd alternate heat and ice and stretch it after the heat part. Hope it doesn't turn out to be anything bad.
I bimbled 8.5 miles in a very Forrest Gump, I could do this forever kind of way, had to remind myself why I shouldn't be going too far. Lovely, foggy, still, quiet morning.
Very pleasant sunny November morning
What: About a couple of hundred yards swim followed by 6 mile runWhy: It's Saturday and the sun was shining(forget the temparatures 8ºC air and water!)Last Rest: ThursdayLyrics: neitherTom - the walk of shame Hope you're back to full strength soon
Sweep - all the best for tomorrow
Rather you than me OH. It was cold enough on my 1.3k walk in Wythenshawe Park whilst parkrun was on. (That's a post Achilles op distance PB!). It felt like 21 degrees (fahrenheit rather than DD's celsiuss!
Hope everything clears up quickly Tom.
Hi, and a happy grizzle day to everyone.
A cold bike ride this morning, wearing the Pirate Buff, we chose a shorter route to avoid getting drenched. A few hills, and 37 miles boshed out. Now warm, clean and dry. Pizza and stuff all ready.

Sorry was absent yesterday again as was resting again... paid off though with a nice 18:58 at Southampton Parkrun
Followed by a CVM (Christian Vision for Men) conference / day which was excellent.
What: 2 miles this morning whilst guests were asleep to get some miles in. Then a surprise lacrosse match at a home tournament... feeling a bit knackered now...(friends decided they liked watching lacrosse and that I should play in the tournament so they could watch more)Last hard: When we got back home, friend got a call from his mum saying his dad had collapsed at work and died, had to sort out flights back to the UK, getting them to the airport etc...feel so sorry for him, espeically as I had gone through this a few years ago with my mum.Lyrics: NopeAle hope you get some chance to start up the running before Christmas, well done on your post op pb though!Sweep don't tell me about good English food, I miss it!
