Wednesday 12th April 2017 - We're leaving together, but still it's farewell.


Lyrics - We're leaving together, but still it's farewell.

The advantage of being a man of leisure OH:-)

Breezy here this morning, forecast chilly with some rain at just about the time I should leave my windowless work and head home to walk Grace. Ah well, it will be my last going to work day for around a week.

What:           short and easy
Why:            work/taper
Last hard:    the speed at which London is approaching
Last rest:     25/2
If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Yesterday's lyrics were Leo Sayer with One Man Band

    Don't know today's.

    What: something!

    Why: will see how the legs feel 
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Last hard: Monday though it was also fun
    Lyrics: nope

    Dustin wow well done!
    Have a great day all
  • Have a good race Wabo.

    Not quite the run I was planning this morning as I hit the deck hard just over half a mile in. Took most of the impact on my left (bad) forearm with a nice bruise on my shoulder too and right (good) knee. Picked myself up and started walking home but then thought that I'd probably stiffen up and be unable to run tomorrow so decided to carry on which went ok. Left arm isn't much use at the moment though I think it's soft tissue injury rather than anything broken, both knees are bruised and the left one has a couple of quite deep holes in:-(
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    OMG, LMH :o   Not good :(

    Happy running anniversary, Wabo :)  enjoy the race.

    Great mileage, Dustin. I'll be glad to see 1000 miles on 31 December ...

    My neurosurgeon broke the bad news today that my spinal injury has flared up again and I need more MRI injections. At least I know why my left leg is up to all sorts of weird things. Something to do with S1 nerve compression. Sigh. I'm still allowed to exercise but without proper feeling in the left leg it can be a bit weird :)

    What: 8 miles
    Why: running my body into submission
    Last hard: above diagnosis
    Last rest: 17/2
    Lyrics: of course

  • Careful chicksta - don't want you falling over too.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • RFJRFJ ✭✭✭
    LMH - hope all is not too bad after the fall and you recover quickly

    Life sounds good OH :-)

    Intervals for me today 8 x 450m off 150m rec - feeling good

    Take care
  • Big winds bring big waves
    What: trip to West "Mainland" (Orkney) to photograph waves. 
    Make tea (Fish Pie and Lemon Meringue) followed by 5k loop.
    why: because I can (not to rub it in ;) )
    Last hard: taking time to get fit again (not there yet)
    Last rest: Sunday
    Lyrics: no

    Heading down to Trossachs again this weekend for Els to do Tartan Skidaddle Ultra.

    Oh dear, LMH, hope it all heals soon.

    Allo Allo AH

    Now yo-yoing with you on year totals Wabo! ;-)
