Monday 17th July 2017 - You might stop a hurricane


Lyrics - You might stop a hurricane

It looks as though it's going to be a nice day, warm, dry and still so I shall try to make the most of it and will be thinking of those on the bench. Speedy healing vibes to each of you.

What:                LSR
Why:                 opportunity/ability
Last hard:         sleeping
Last rest:          15/7

Yesterday's lyrics - Back To Life by Soul II Soul.
If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Beautifully sunny here today.

    What: running club
    Why: it's Monday
    Last hard: not eating everything yesterday!
    Lyrics: nope

    Calf a bit stiff this morning but not painful.  Eased after a bit of stretching (physio on Friday so not surprised it's a bit stiff as hadn't been treated for 5 weeks)

    Oh has very stiff legs this morning.  Made me laugh!

    Sounds like you had a good holiday Dustin.

    Oh at least you didn't get wetter going in the sea!

    Ale, cricket is not looking good.

    Anyone watch the tennis yesterday? What was going on there?!

    Have a good day all

    Morning, morning. Glorious weather, great day for a run...if only
    What: Bench
    Lyrics: Nope
    Glad to see so many out there having fun and enjoying themselves. Keep it up.
    To my fellow benchees: hang in there, we'll be back.

  • DustinDustin ✭✭✭

    what - easy lunchtime run
    why - getting back in the swing & club committee meeting tonight
    last rest - 04/07
    last hard - 5am alarm clock...
  • Hope it's not been too much of a shock to the system Dustin. Your holiday sounds nice.

    Keep the faith SC. Any signs of improvement?

    Beautiful day here too emzap. I find the trick to managing the hunger monster after long runs is to get a good instant refuel (so within half an hour of finishing) usually peanut butter on toast with an apple for me at the minute but when I couldn't face eating immediately I'd go for a banana and peanut butter shake or similar (just a few carbs and some protein) then eat your next meal as usual within two hours. LOL at your OH:-)

    Did you have nice weather for your walk too Poppy? Grace wanted a long one this morning but it was only around four miles.

    Hope work doesn't stop play too much OH.

    Anyone any idea what's going on with the huge gap under the opening post? I've noticed it when Poppy was starting the thread too.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Hi LMH. Pain subsiding, movement is still restricted. Itching to do stuff but realise patience will have to apply for at least another week, if not more. Ankle and calf support helping. Not really an issue when sitting and not to bad when following the Ale book of words on exercises, when I remember :-)

  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭
    Afternoon all
    SC, keep strong resist the itch
    LMH I noticed that gap last week, hope you had a good LSR
    emzap hope nothing bad with the calf
    pops hope all is ok

    What: 7.5 miles later, slightly hilly
    why: time to think about snowdonia
    last hard: yesterday afternoon with a hangover!!
    last rest: 31/12
    have a good day all

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

    6 mile walk this morning I needed gloves but the sun was poking through then another 1.25 to village and back and hour on exercise back and  rubbing of legs with The Stick...instrument of torture.

    SC you are doing so well being patient I maybe on the Bench just as long we shall see.

    Wabo: enjoy the run tonight:-)
    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.

    Hello!  Back from Feurtaventura or however you spell it.  Great week, had a wee run 6 of the 7 days.

    5 miles yesterday when I got back and 4 today, started too fast today and paid the price.  Should know better.

    Hope everyone not running gets back to it soon.

    Lyrics, nope.

    So, that's me finished at work until mid-September, unless I get a call, although have a couple of leavers assemblies to attend. 

    No whats or whys nor lyrics.

    Cricket sounds grim, Emz. 

    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
  • RFJRFJ ✭✭✭
    Ale - try to enjoy the break and recover well

    SC - resist temptation :-)

    Early evening run for me tonight 6.68m

    Lyrics no

    Take care all
