Morning you lot

Todays lyrics; 'You, you got  a nasty reputation.'

Tired as collected younger son from school 6th Year Christmas Dance at 12:15am this morning. Stifles a yawn

What:3M easy

Why: Just see above

Be back later


  • Morning!

    Blisters - it's that time of year. I have a weekend darn sarf to fit what I can around this weekend. It just needs to be done doesn't it - and there's always the internet for the shopping!

    And when was the last time you were out until gone midnight birkmyre? image

    What:             an hour on the turbo
    Why:               need bike time
    Last hard:       2/12
    Last rest:        14/12

    Lyrics - maybe.

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

    Morning all,
    words seem familiar but not immediately obvious..
    what - club night, we got the track so will be hard intervals of some kind
    why - missed the last 3 or 4 club nights for various reasons, plus I like track work
    last rest  - friday
    last hard - sunday's tempo

  • What : not a lot
    Why: recovering from yesterday's tummy bug
    Last hard: Saturday
    Last Rest: yesterday
    Lyrics: no

    Not feeling up to much today although that was last real opprtunity before Boxing Day

  • Morning!

    Lyrics: no

    What: short walk
    Why: lower leg a little sore post physio

    My visitor's last full day tomorrow and we are off to see our mutual running doctor friend. I will be having a chat with him about prostate treatment: I have a further appointment tomorrow for discussion about the suitability of radiotherapy.

    Quite a pleasant day here after the monsoons of yesterday.

    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
  • the monsoons have arrived here, ale image

    what: 11.3 soggy miles
    why: it's character-building
    last hard: not turning round as the downpour hit about 2 miles in
    last rest: yesterday
    lyrics: vaguely familiar but not a firm yes

  • Lyrics: No
    What: Whatever I can
    Why: Because I need to do something and work/life have been getting in the way.
    Last Hard...In the memory banks somewhere
    Last rest: Yesterday
    Work and friends/family taking over everything just now...need to get a grip!

  • Pushed myself out for 3 miles (tummy managed to last outimage - a concern),
    rewarded by a beautiful changing big red setting sun over Scapa Flowimage
    More big winds on the way - may affect family getting back home for Christmas

  • Good news that you felt well enough  for a run OH. Plenty of time for the weather forecast to change.

    chickadeee - I find it harder to set off in the rain than to keep going if it hits once I'm out.

    Hope you get to track Dustin.

    Alehouse - the visit seems to have gone quickly - hope it feels the same for you.

    Come on TC - sort yourself out man! image

    Good turbo session for me - surprisingly as with my jab due today I thought tiredness would make it difficult for me to raise HR.

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

    Greetings all,

    sorry didnt get to post last night, as did club run, then straight out to watch the Hobbit, great film...

    7.5m done tonight

    Take care



  • Evening

    Just in for a wee nosey.

  • Evening. A better day here, commencing with a beautiful purple sunrise over the Cotswold Hills. Spent the day at 1200ft on the Heads of the Valleys near Ebbw Vale. The factory I was visiting had just installed a small (56m diameter) wind turbine. Well, it looked small until I was stood underneath it. I can categorically dismiss the over-perpetuated urban myth that they are noisy. THEY ARE SILENT. I don't mean quiet, I mean SILENT. (Some things wind me up, and that's one).

    Sorry for the ramble. Early finish, and got a swim done. 64 lengths in......46:10. I am beginning to get pissed off with this reverse progress. I know that I have barely shaken off a cold, but FFS I'm slowing down.

    Just seen the forecast. Make sure you put a lid on the pond or the fish will be making a break for it.
