Friday 7th December 2018 Nice girls not the one with the defects


Lyrics: Nice girls not the one with the defects
Cellophane shrink-wrapped so correct

What: short and easy

Why: this week's plan due to illness, weather, calf etc

Enjoyed yesterday's book launch and learning about how the book was created in terms of location and a new detective character.
 Was actually Kate's 29th book, not 28th. 

And it is raining again.
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.


  • Morning.

    Yesterday's lyrics - Troublemaker by Olly Murs.

    They sound like the sort of thing I'd like to read Alehouse. I was woken by the sound of the rain on the window at 0400hrs. It's due to start drying up by 1000hrs though and I have time to wait it out and hope today so will probably do that unless the forecast changes.

    That sounds good chicksta, a real extra day off. Three day weekends are nice. You need to read Benjy's post to understand the Bakewell/film thing.

    What:            short and easy
    Why:             I want to
    Last hard:     I find the winter hard
    Last rest:      27/11

    Lyrics - I think I should but I don't.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    morning all
    lyrics, oh yes, love this
    LMH interesting about pace and upping miles, my shorter ones seem to be getting a bit better that makes sense. Enjoy the short and easy.
    Alehouse enjoy yours as well, I am making an eggless cake tomorrow, so late I know...
    Gobi, up and at em

    what: 20 pressups, run, then a walk with son later
    why: short run as I have another race tomorrow, muddy by the looks!
    last hard: yesterday am, and yoga last night
    last r est: 31/12/16

    have a good day all
    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • Morning,

    Wabo : Good luck tomorrow!!

    What: 8.2 miles
    Why: Because I can/building up
    Last hard: The wet weather I may need  a boat
    Lyrics: Not a scooby Doo
    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.

    WABO - Always :¬)

    Go hard, compete and go home content in the knowledge that you put it all out there when it mattered

  • Poppy: You're back to good mileage again

    Wabo: Enjoy the mud and the race

    LMH: Hope the rain stopped and you managed to get out. I must have skim-read Benjy's post on my phone last night so the film/bakewell reference didn't register.

    So tired this morning I very nearly didn't get up. Every night I hope to get a bit of decent kip, but every night it's the same. I wake up at 1 or 2 and that's it then. Sigh. Plan was to do intervals but my heart (and body) weren't up for it. I tried but failed quite miserably.

    What: VO2 max. sesh
    Why: Plan said so
    Last hard: that was. My HR never moved out of the LT zone. Must be my body telling me something
    Last rest: 9/11
    Lyrics: no clue
  • Not sleeping sucks chicksta and there's no point in making yourself feel worse by trying to run a session, get yourself out for some easy miles when you feel like that and do the sessions when you feel better. I was able to wait until the rain had passed today though it was colder and windier out than I thought.

    Which race tomorrow Wabo?

    Building up nicely Poppy.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Afternoon!

    Lyrics: there was a clue!

    Sunny when I set off for my short run; two minutes later and it was raining.

    Race well, Wabo, and anyone else pinning a number on or parkrunning. Hope that includes Emz!

    Sleep well tonight, Chick!
