Lyrics - Never know but nothing less

A damp start here and forecast more rain and high winds for the rest of the week - joy.

What:             just an hours easy run
Why:              easier day
Last hard:       21/4
Last rest:        27/4

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

    Last rest: yesterday (even went to sleep on couch in evening, much to Elspeth's disgust)
    Last hard: Mon 28Lyrics:image

    SC that's a bummer!

  • Hope you son get over it chickadeee.

    Got wet walking Grace but it stayed dry for my run - quite dark and miserable looking but reasonably warm. Was tempted to run for longer but the cycling is increasing my training volume by quite a lot and I know that I still have some residual tiredness from VLM and it wouldn't take too much to push me over in to ill health so commonsense prevailed.

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

  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭

    Sorry been AWOL for a while what with a trip to the UK.  Relatived out.  Did get some sunshine though and a nice trip to Bath.  Now we have a break from weddings for the next 4 months as well...3 in 4 months was too many!

    Managed Whitstable parkrun too.  Was on for 25 mins, but then the wind going back along the sea was too strong, so made it in just under 27.  Happy with that considering the conditions.  Also ran to the top of one of the hills in Bath.  Not far, but a lot of uphill!

    Hoping to get out today before we head off for a trip up the Rhine (4 public holidays in May means lots going on!).

    Wabo she is cute!
    SC sorry to hear of your troubles image
    LMH good to hear the sensible hat is on.
    Birks I miss my garden
    Chick Hope you feel better soon.

    Have a good day all.

    Why: manness ensues
    Last Hard: the hill
    Lyrics No

  • emzap - yes, hay asthma can indeed occur occasionally in hayfever sufferers. Hayfever, asthma and eczema are common partners too - if you have one you are more likely to get one of the others.
    (I just had hay asthma once in my early 20s, on a very hot Easter w/e (while trying to do all the Welsh 3000s over 2 days. Never bothered me again.image and generally have above average peak flow rates)

  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭

    OH thanks for that.  I have had eczema forever and only recently started getting hayfever...I have a feeling it's bringing on the SOB image  Fingers crossed it's a short lived thing!

  • Afternoon

    Why needed a day off running
    Lyrics no

    NZC forgot to congratulate you on your Rotarura time, very respectable indeed.

    OH seems like you well and truly showed those Welsh lumps whose boss image

    Off to Bristol for work tomorrow so will try and sneak something in early.

  • emzap - you could see if an antihistamine helps?

    SC - sorry to hear that but I expect your students will be pleased image

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