Tuesday 27th November 2018 - All the rain came down


Lyrics - All the rain came down
            On a cold new town

Were your girl's choosing things for their xmas lists Benjy?

I have had an annoying tickly cough that wakes me in the small hours and keeps me awake for an hour or so and it's not getting any better, same with a (mostly) low level sore throat and I've reached the conclusion that much as I would feel better for a short run (don't have much time today because of work) if i don't do something I'm going to end up proper poorly. Taking a rest day today really isn't my first choice with my long day at work (for me), bad weather forecast for the next couple of days and Friday already designated a non run day due to our day out but unless I feel loads better after walking Grace I think it's the only sensible option. Let's see if it's my turn to wear the sensible head eh?

What:            should be nothing
Why:             see essay above
Last hard:     sticking to the decision not to run won't be easy (no time for gym)
Last rest:      14/10

Yesterday's lyrics - Tired by Adele.
If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.


  • Morning!

    Hope you shake off whatever you have, LMH! Feeling similar here this morning which is typical as yesterday I told the GP I was feeling well at present! Any way...

    What: short run and long fitness suite this evening

    Why: see above/work/weather etc

    Lyrics: no

    Wonder how SC is faring, amongst others.
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Sensible people ..... ankle watch and 145 miles this month sees me also making sure today is a non run day.  

    What: 75 mins on the watt bike d&d more later plus vanity work
    Why: it's Tuesday 
    Last hard: Sunday 
    Last rest 31st October 
    Lyrics: I believe I jolly well do.

    Continuing our chat LMH 2019 is a strange year. I am top of my age group and all racing is really about 2020. 2 years ago whem I started this plan I knew exactly what 2020 would be but now .....

    Humans, strange things :-)

    morning all
    alehouse, the race, I enjoyed it (the ok) I was slow(the awful). enjoy your short run today
    Having seen t he park run photos where I am in them with Cleo, I see the weight around the middle that is slowing me down!! It must shift....
    Benjy sounds like a nice day with your girls
    LMH I think sensible head, although I am not so good at that!
    Gobi, amazing! Be sensible..
    The show I saw last night with Jodie was fabulous darlings!!
    Tonight is Billy Ocean with OH, who broke a toe on Saturday dropping an heavy sofa on it.  And we are standing oh dear!!

    what: 2 miles d&d am
    why time constraints yet again 
    Last hard: this morning
    last rest: 31/12/16

    have a great day all, wish you better LMH

    LmH - Hope the tickle soon passes
    Benjy - I only work in London, I live 40+ miles further west, so I can be in the woods or fields within 3 minutes of leaving the house. 
    Pretty much trail or quiet lanes whichever direction I go in. You can find the odd escape onto grass though - Victoria Park to the North, Greenwich Park to the south and there is Millwall Park & zoo right in the middle of the isle of Dogs. 
    What - squeezing some miles in + coaching tonight
    Why - on the schedule
    last rest - 17 days
    last hard - QoP referring me to the knee specialist at her practice. Seems odd that it seems to be getting better (and I can run on it) but there is still a bit of tenderness f she pokes teh wrong bit.
    lyric - Yeah I think so
  • Maybe time to see your GP Dustin and start the process of getting an x-ray/scan etc?

    I think it's good that you are re-thinking Gobi rather than just going with what you had thought was what you wanted to do. So many people seem to think that once they've declared themselves/started on a path they must see it through even if they find it no longer suits. Mind you I'm talking as a 51 year old who still doesn't know what they want to do when they grow up and has been forced to change course a couple of times - though so far the consequences have been mostly positive though it's sometimes taken a while to see that.

    Typical Alehouse - don't go making yourself worse for the sake of a streak.

    I'm not really ill (much easier to take a day off if feeling very bad) but am definitely not well and after walking Grace had no desire to take myself out for what would have been a short, rushed run so a rest day it is and hope that's enough to fight off whatever it is.

    I hope OH's toe isn't too painful Wabo and you can both enjoy the evening.

    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    LmH - yes, she did suggest quack & MRI. 
    May try to make an appointment if he has time between his rounds of golf....

  • Those those days are long gone Dustin  ;)

    400m OW swim (8°C water 5°C air with strong wind chill)
    Badminton this evening.
    why: a lot of people ask that
    gales forecast for tomorrow

    lyrics no
