Thursday 1st November 2018 - Wait for the sun

Morning.

Lyrics - Wait for the sun
             Watching the sky

A warmer start here this morning - but that's because it's wet...............

Glad you're feeling better emzap.

What:           short and easy
Why:            tired
Last hard:    yesterday's run felt harder than it should for the pace
Last rest:     14/10

Yesterday's lyrics - Ghosts by The Jam.
If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Morning!

    Lyrics: no

    Wet here also, sun hopefully later...then negative temperatures tomorrow morning!

    What: short run and fitness suite

    Why: being careful

    Emz: off somewhere warmer?
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    OH: Spooky pic, yesterday! Good luck with the Polar Bear Challenge. Rather you than me ;)

    Managed to dodge the sweet stealers last night. If it's bah humbug at Christmas, what is it at Hallowe'en?
    Good question!

    LMH: Hope the short and easy made you feel better.

    What: strength work at the gym
    Why: haven't been in a while plus left hamstring is niggly from yesterday's tempo stuff - straight leg deadlifts usually help to loosen it up
    Last hard: yesterday
    Last rest: Monday
    Lyrics: no

  • Morning

    Dustin: Enjoy catch up with mates tonight.I used to embrace Halloween but I have been a right misery over it past 5 years.

    Wabo: Lovely photo of you both;-)

    What: 10.25 miles
    Why: Because I could
    last hard: Yesterday or seeing my washing machine in parts on kitchen floor it could be a long day.(bearings gone)
    Lyrics: Yes

    Longest run post boot It seems I just have to go with flow each day.I have a headache and glands are up but I can run;-)
    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.
  • I do not engage with Halloween at all. I think it's a shame that it's caught on over here.

    Hope you feel well enough for yoga Wabo.

    Great that you've been able to build the miles again Poppy, hope the glands and headache soon disappear.

    It did thanks chicksta. I'm a bit Eeyore at the moment, B12 jab next week which should help - just have to get there first.

    Hope you have a nice evening out Dustin.

    Rather you than me OH. That forecast is not looking good for Saturday.

    Alehouse - have just had an email about my prize from Sunday - free entry into their half in February or the 10k again next year. LOL.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    LMH - you say it like it is new, we did this when I was a kid 40 years ago

    I've been in LA

    What: track league

    Why: time to start again

    Last hard: Sunday

    Last rest: yesterday, Tuesday and Monday

    Lyrics: No

    If people are interested I have blogged about my trip but I only ran once and the rest was cycling  

  • chickstachicksta ✭✭✭
    Definitely no Halloween when I was a kid (more than 40 years ago ;)  )

    LMH: Hang on a minute... I thought you had a rubbish race but winning a prize smells of a podium finish. So, give yourself a pat on the back. Well done :)

    great miles, poppy
  • It certainly wasn't a thing where I lived when I was a child (longer ago than Gobi but not by much).

    A podium finish just means no one faster turned up chicksta.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Taking the advice of the entire world and skipping training tonight and looking for a sports injury specialist about me knee.  

    Lyrics, nope
  • Sensible but not an easy decision Donaldo.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Halloween was definitely a thing of my childhood (more years ago than most of you!) but not "trick or treat". We would dress up and go around neighbourhood with lanterns.

    We live on outskirts and usually don't get Halloween callers but were caught empty handed last night.

    November's minimum requirement for Polar Bear Challenge already completed - 2 X 250m swim.
