Todays lyrics:Looking from the window above
Yesterdays lyrics: 'Streets of London' by Ralph McTell.
What: 4M Steady
Why: Stretch the legs,
Catch up time
Weather is forecast to go downhill from today - the weekend is not looking good for getting out. Bored with it now.
What: just an hour on the turboWhy: easy dayLast hard: 19/1Last rest: 28/12
Lyrics - yes.
Fed up with the weather we're getting up here too.
What: something off orad and in the light after work is the plan, but it may changeWhy: the planned weather may make an impact! A good test of commitment is the current weather!
I'm home from work and I know the lyrics
What depends on when I wake we are supposed to be getting this weather thing all day today though its quite now it wasn't earlier didn't bring bike to work I walked as talk was 60nmph winds

Got a Premier Inn for about 30pounds so takes the rush out of Saturday morning (and I get an 'all you can eat' breakfast!)Have a lovely day
Well I can drop the fair-weather moniker now...
I'd forgotten how much fun tube strikes were.
Have a good one!
What leisurely 16+Why MWLRLyrics yes
Proper day off work so didn't get out the door until after 10 this morning. No real rain to speak of but it was rather blowy which made some bits quite hard work. Just glad that there were no time pressures.
Off to play taxi's now so may be back later.
nice work postie,AF,Gobi yeah c'mon Dibs , stop slacking!well 6 at lunchtime along the river to Vauxhall, lots of rain=no tourists, a joy to have Embankment to myself!Legs a bit achey but nice to get it done.
What: 2.23k on the roadsWhy: wanted an easy day, and couldn't face more mud off-road. Active rest. Had a discussion re active rest with QofP yesterday (had to pay her!): she is very much in favour of it, particularly if it precedes stretching. Guess what I must do.
And well done on the long-midweek runs!
Lyrics - yes. That's a streak of 2.Congratulations to the early birds, and in fact to anyone who has battled through it out there. I've just visited the Llandarcy Institute of Sport, to see what they have to offer a visitor (indoors). The answer was a packed gym with more people arriving (no thanks), and an absence of swimming pool. It looks like it's the trainers and wind jacket again.
What: 1k pool swim
why: on call but wanted to do something active
last hard: Monday
last rest: Sunday
lyrics - no
dibs - yes you can
What: managed another 3 miles last night, plus a few walks through the bush in a barmy 13C...I thought it was meant to be summer here? (I'll be eating those words when it reaches 40C and I'm complaining about the heat!!!).Why: easy to run whilst staying with family, will be harder later on.Last hard: a very steep hill yesterdayLast rest: Monday from running, but Friday for a proper rest.Lyrics: don't think I know today's
Another cloudy day here, hoping it doesn't rain again...at least it means the snakes appear to be hiding!
Have a good one all.
Evening. Came home from work today really tired. Had no motivation to go out but forced myself out on the streets. Only did 3.5 miles including 20 x 30s 'fast' and 30s slow. Two phone calls during it (on duty) so not ideal.
Lyrics, yes indeed!
no on the lyrics again,
Lunch run 6 x 2 min intervals, was due to be 10 but IBS got in the way again, so followed that up tonight with a stead 1 hour and felt great.....
