    Yesterday's lyrics were Focus by Ryan Keen

    Good to see you Paddy and to hear that all is going well.

    Early start tomorrow Dustin? Hope you have a good one.

    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Morning dustin and LMH

  • Morning,

    Heavy day today. Doubt I'll get running.

    LMH - it's Brighton for me.

    What: probably nothing

    Why: Lots of intermittent work to do

    Lyrics.  No

    Have a good Friday.

  • DustinDustin ✭✭✭

    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...

  • GobiGobi ✭✭✭
    what: ride to work (30 miles) d&d

    run ?

    ride home

    why: getting it done

    last hard: Wednesday

    last rest: Monday 30th December

    lyrics: yes and stuck in my head
  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭


    What: possibly 10 km, possibly rest
    Why: 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 hard
    Lyrics: 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 image

  • Gales todayimageimage

    Should be getting out for run but doesn't look too inviting

    Last rest: Monday 


  • Pammie*Pammie* ✭✭✭


    Up at  7 today much too early for me image but better than 4.30 yesterday

    • Last Hard: n/a
    • Last Rest: 6/1

    Have a good one!

  • Hi Guys,

    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.


  • GobiGobi ✭✭✭
    dibs - options are huge

    will you just ride or is it tri only?
  • 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 image

    A lovely day here - if you are a skier image  fresh powdery snow and minus 6 degrees. Perfect conditions for a tempo run --- NOT!!

    what: 7 slow miles
    why: see above
    last hard: coming to terms that winter is here to stay for a while
    last rest: Monday
    lyrics: yes!!

    Have a nice weekend all.

  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭


    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 


    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • 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!

    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • I hear ya LMH- so many options! 

  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭

    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 image

  • Evening!

    Lyrics: no

    Just wet and windy here, Emz...although not on the OH scale of wind!

    What: just 2k
    Why: turn legs over. Long run tomorrow (a relative term...60 mins or thereabouts)

    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
  • Grr/Brr

    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.
