Friday, 29 June 2018 - trying to make ends meet

Morning!

The first 10 mins of the game were good though :smile:
And there was more running going on in those 10mins than in the whole 90 when the Germans played.

Lyrics: Trying to make ends meet, you're a slave to the money then you die.

Yesterday's were Loser, Beck.

Just back from a 10 mile run. Warm already.

    Chicksta first across the line! I knew my lyrics! 

    Wondering where Benjy is this week: lost in the sea fret?
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
  • Morning.

    I was right - I didn't know yesterday's lyrics - but I do know both of today's.

    Nice to have your run done early chicksta.

    Hope the hydrotherapy helps Alehouse.

    What:          short and easy/finishing MiL's cake
    Why:           legs need it and work limits time/it's her birthday
    Last hard:   mile 13 yesterday wasn't easy
    Last rest:    12/6

    Lyrics - yes.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Morning all
    Tired, and all set to be another sizzler here...

    What - easy miles at lunchtime
    Why - recovery , getting some sun
    last rest - 1/6
    last hard - probably last night. Club Mob Match against another local club. Just shy of 50 runners , not bad given it clashed with the football. It's a long climb up for a mile, short, flat stretch across the top, lovely long descent back down before another short , nasty climb back to the finish. All in 2.5 miles all trail much of it very wild! Grass longest I've seen it for a while. 
    Waltzed round in just a shade under 18 minutes which I was fairly happy with given the state of the legs.

    Morning

    Chick great job on your run this morning:-)

    What: Nowt
    Why: Felt sick with the heat  and went  back to bed for 3 hours
    Last hard : See above/sleeping I hate this heat!
    Lyrics: Nope and nope to yesterday but did know Ale's
    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.
  • Haar arrived today - cooler and duller

    what: volunteer strimming on St Magnus Way
    why: needed (shoulder high nettles)

    poron insoles arrive today  - hopefully they'll help on Sunday 

    lyrics no

    Quiet today!

    Is that term finished, Don?

    Hope the insoles help, OH!

    Sounds tough, Dustin, on top of your other recent outings!

    Worked hard in the hydrotherapy session: back coping a lot better but knee wasn't to the extent that the physio wants me to try and organise a scan as there is now a debate as to whether it is a meniscus or collateral ligament injury and these are treated slightly differently, I understand.


    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
  • I hope the insoles arrive in time for you to try a run before the marathon OH. What's the forecast like for Sunday?

    I think your legs deserve a bit of a break Dustin!

    Sorry you felt too unwell to run Poppy.

    You seem to be having more than your share of misfortune Alehouse.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Poron insoles arrived. 5k run. My feet haven't fallen off.
    Rest day tomorrow.
    Sunday:
    Warm for Orkney (16-18C). Dry. No wind.
  • That sounds like great conditions OH. Did the it feel any more comfortable than running without the insoles?
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Difficult to judge on short run (pain generally kicks in after about 6miles).
    Have been recommended to try with just the insoles leaving standard insoles out. This also results in slightly less drop as standard insoles are more built up at heel.

    Bit hot for us northerners!
  • alehousealehouse ✭✭✭
    Yes, rather warm in your original neck of the woods, OH! Over 30 the last four days and was only around 26 mid afternoon, then it warmed up to 29 again. More of a breeze today. Just off to check that the Griffin is still there...

    Why: what I could fit around work and it's a good event even though I don't like many beers
    Last hard: sleeping in the heat!
    Lyrics: nope

    Ale what did you do in a former life?!
