Todays lyrics:Silent darkness creeps into your soul

What:5M Steady

Why: Lovely morning for it.

Sun shining, no wind, still, wee bit cold.

Back later


  • Morning.

    Yesterday's lyrics were Walking On Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves.

    Paddy - I think it's fair to say that my heart is well and truly in it now.

    What:            endurance swim set/maybe a short easy run
    Why:             schedule/making the most of the weather
    Last hard:      21/4
    Last rest:       27/4

    Lyrics - no.

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

    morning all,
    LMH - good to see the return of the mojo!
    Blisters - surely you know by now, interior decorating is a winter job...
    what - club night, speedy reps
    why - Tuesday
    last rest - last saturday
    last hard - sundays long run

    lyric - are nagging away at me..

    morning guys and such a beautiful one image. I wish I wasn't working today ...

    Really loving spring at the moment. I reckon a few runners at MK mara yesterday had a rough old time in the heat though.

    what: 10 miles -- yep ten (longest run since mara image)
    why: I wanted to
    last hard: Saturday
    last rest: Thursday
    lyrics: I'm thinking of a movie tune but maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree

  • Morning all. Nope on the lyrics.

    What: rest!

    Why: two races over the weekend (parkrun on Saturday, 18.59 in Oldham and Coiners fell race in Mytholmroyd - 7.5m/400m ascent) means I'm knackered. Also, one of my trail shoes ripped clear in half on the final descent, so I need some new ones.

    Last hard: yesterday, definitely.

  • Morning again

    7D: A well done on your two races.

    chick: Double figures so good for you.

  • What: catch up on yesterday's closure at work
    Why: the downside of bank holidays
    last hard: 8 days ago
    last rest Saturday

    Chickadee - "I wanted to" - says it all!image

    7D - a well earned restimage

    BM back to habitual ways again?

  • OH: Nope just fancied a 5 today, nice sunny morning stillimage

    LMH: Cracking song for yesterday in my opinionimage

  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭

    afternoon all

    chickadee, nice long run, I am sort of craving one now!

    7d, wow well done on the double!

    lyrics, no, they are not even nagging dustin

    what: 6 miles in the forest with buddies this morning before work - was lovely!

    why: mate over from usa and its what we do

    last hard: that was with its hills

    last easy: sunday

    have a good day all

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


    my utterly adorable granddaughter, couldn't resist sharing!


    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • sun just peeping through here now the morning haar is lifting

    cute picture Wabo

    Lyrics: what Wabo said.

    Well done 7D!

    What: a walk later
    Why: still not up to running. Worked today but felt grim! Feel dizzy and head aches, but considerably better than Saturday.  Don't even feel like going to the Alehouse.

    Wabo: that photo sure looks like trouble!

    Think positive thoughts, banish negative ideas and visualize your success
  • Sounds like a good weekends work 7d!

    Wabo - she's growing up so fast!

    Sorry to hear that you're still feeling rough Alehouse.

    Beautiful here this afternoon so after my 2.6k swim set this morning I took Grace out for 5.5 miles with a few stops whilst she paddled in the lake and river to cool off on the way.

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

    Lyrics: Nope
    What: Gentle stroll
    Why: Enforced rest
    Last Hard: Facing reality
    Last Rest: Yesterday

    Had another NHS hospital day last Friday, 9 hours of joy and battery of tests. Pericarditis flared again and no running/exercise for at least another week. No Embra for me unless I walk. Looks like slowish half mara will be max going forward. Tish happens so reframe and get on with it. Back tomorrow with smiley face and will try and reduce my AWOL's

  • SticklessStickless ✭✭✭

    Afternoon all,

    Oh bu&&er, Straycelt. Phooey. Not what we wanted to hear.  Sorry, but you've clearly figured it out - the reframe and get on with it bit. Hard to see the positives, but does enable one to feel slightly smug reading others' woes as they regret their failed time ambitions for this marathon or that.  Those who have to reframe know what running is about, which others may not, whatever time they come home in.

    Wabo - oooh she's lovely!

    Alehouse - hope head clears and the dizzy stops soon.  Hang in there.

    7D - sounds a stiff fell run.  Well done on the double.

    Yes, glorious spring mornings that beg one to go outside and enjoy them.  I got out early too, but to walk over to friends house to sit with her poorly Mr. while she went out for a bird-watch.  Got there to find he'd been taken in to hozzie.  Sugar.  They've had more than their share of troubles.

    (saw a heron and a green woodpecker on the way over)

    Packing now for long training weekend with Tinebeest.  Not as prepared as would like to be, but life interfered, as it is well known to do.  1kg in weight loss, only two stairs run, one longer run, and not very long at that.  Three days on the trot should do good things.

    Sorry to hear SC, hope you get soon

    7D - you are as mad as me with races, well done

    5.25m for me today

    Take care



  • Really sorry to hear that SC - are you still ok with the TKD?

    Didn't know you had any weight to lose Stickless! Hope you enjoy your weekend with Tine.

    Forecast for the rest of the week is now good - rain forecast to appear tomorrow morning and strong winds not far behind it - not what I need when playing catch up on the bike.

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

    What 8 commute
    Why ticking over
    Lyrics no

    Carp day at work, tired now so rest day tomorrow.

  • DonaldoDonaldo ✭✭✭

    Cute pic wabo. image

    12 x 200m reps on grass, nice and easy, loads of recovery. 4 miles all in!

    lyrics - nope.

  • Pammie*Pammie* ✭✭✭


    Thought I posted early  guess it didn't happen

    Wabo lovely pic

    Alehouse Hope you're feeling better soon

    Straycelt oh no  hope you get  another chance  soon

    What:4.45 miles
    Why: Because
    Last Hard: a little today
    Lyrics No

  • Wabo, as a Grand daughter I'm sure she's cute. As a daughter I can see trouble.

    To those on the bench, it sounds like that woodwork is becoming bum-magnetic.

    What: work not finished yet. So I came home to carry on with life and finish up, er, now. However, I did get the bike out and cranked out 20 miles (65  minutes). Rain forecast, with cooler temps, or summer as we used to call it.
