Todays lyrics: 'I get up, and nothing gets me down.'
4M Steady. Cold one up here today.

Need to catch up

Yesterday's lyrics were Focus by Ryan Keen
Good to see you Paddy and to hear that all is going well.

What: easy runWhy: I usually run easyLast hard: 19/1Last rest: 28/12
Lyrics - yes.
Morning dustin and LMH
Heavy day today. Doubt I'll get running.
LMH - it's Brighton for me.
What: probably nothing
Why: Lots of intermittent work to do
Have a good Friday.
LmH - probably be a later start - Saturdays normally have to be at the pool for 6:15 for youngest's training. Her XC race tomorrow is middayish, but parking at Parly Hill isn't the best. Think the senior/vet men go off about 3, so I should be finished in daylight...
What: possibly 10 km, possibly restWhy: there was a lot of snow when I left this morning. None at work though, so we'll see what it looks like when I get home. Snow + dark is not good.Last hard: Tuesday was pretty hardLyrics: familiar, but not sure
Wabo I'm glad the doc has given you some exercises. Let's hope they work.Dibs How are you feeling today?Enjoy the chocolate bar of your choice
Should be getting out for run but doesn't look too inviting
Dreich day again here .
What: 3 miles
Why: biting cold 40 mph wind
last: actually today felt hard
Last rest: Monday
Up at 7 today much too early for me but better than 4.30 yesterday
What: 2.29 milesWhy: Because I mustLast Hard: ThatLyrics No
Have a good one!
What: Rest day + half day at work (Yay).
lyrics: No, but sounds 'pop' like.
Emzap- Each day is better than the last I think. Hard to tell, work is keeping me distracted, plus keeps me aware that I am actually capable.
Decided to buy a triathlon bike with the money now not going on elective. Will be my first racing/tri bike. Anyone have any suggestions on brands/do and don't for buying? I think I will have around a grand to play with.
Actually 40 gusting 55 kts (44 - 60 mph)
fire lit and not going out again
Gobi- Ride and tri. Is it a better option to get a racing bike and then get areo bars?
Afternoon A lovely day here - if you are a skier fresh powdery snow and minus 6 degrees. Perfect conditions for a tempo run --- NOT!!what: 7 slow mileswhy: see abovelast hard: coming to terms that winter is here to stay for a whilelast rest: Mondaylyrics: yes!!Have a nice weekend all.
I think hopefully the back is responding to the exercises, please please...
Dustin I am over Parly Hill tomorrow too
oh, sounds lovely 'fire lit and not going out'!
emzap I was delighted my doctor gave me exercises tbh!
think I know the lyrics
what: 3 miles and back exercises done first thing this morning
why: need to run and back needs the other!
last hard: this morning
last easy: yesterday
have a good weekend all
Sounds promising Wabo.
Dibs - if it were me I'd go for a road bike and clip on bars. The most important thing is fit so go to a proper bike shop and take some advice - or pay for a bike size at a Retul fitter or similar. Having the set up right makes a huge difference.
OH - I envy you your fire but not your weather.
Don't send any our way emzap/chickadee!
I hear ya LMH- so many options!
Hummm managed 5 miles rather than the 6.2 as although I got home early and it was still light, it was too slippery to run once it got dark. Anyway, better than nothing. Meant to reach the dizzy heights of -6 tomorrow. Think I'll hide inside!
OH that is pretty windy...Dibs ohhh a shiny new toy to play with
Just wet and windy here, Emz...although not on the OH scale of wind!
What: just 2kWhy: turn legs over. Long run tomorrow (a relative term...60 mins or thereabouts)
Working from home, but with a significant challenge of (dis)organisation that needed resolving. This meant that all I could do was sit still, on the phone and laptop, getting progressively colder. I really wanted to get a short steady run done, but now the rain's set in and the evening's activities have caught up.
Still, it looks like I'll be getting a bike ride tomorrow. It's been a while.
