Friday, 28 December 2018 - It's a one way street with an open end

Must have forgotten to submit yesterday's post. Hm...

So lyrics on the 26 the were Boxing Day, Blink 182

Today's are: It's a one way street with an open end

Good to see everyone getting their miles, rides and swims in. Back to work for me but at least I managed a little gym session. And hopefully 10 miles this morning. It's still warm, wet and windy.

Happy Friday, all.


  • Morning.

    Yesterday's lyrics - It's Over by Level 42.

    Is this the start of your four day working chicksta? 

    That's unusual routing OH.

    What:          short and easy
    Why:           it's been quite a big week
    Last hard:   contemplating tapering
    Last rest:    27/11

    Lyrics - no.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Morning all
    What - short and easy
    Why - work & recovery
    last rest - 15 days
    last hard - Yesterday in the end: easy recovery in the morning, club's 5x800s in the evening. Not full out but kept honest by some clubmates. Stupid really after LTP on Wednesday. 
    lyric - nope
  • Morning!

    Lyrics: no

    What: short and easy...and hope it develops into something longer

    Why: running to how the legs feel

    What's the plan taper-wise LMH

    Bit of a disaster in the night: phone was on charge and it suddenly went "bang". Will have to get a temporary one shortly whilst I send this one for repair. 
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
  • Take it easy Dustin.

    Pain about your phone Alehouse. I plan to do the same as I did before the Vale of York Half.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Morning

    What 6 miles
    Why: because I can
    Last hard : Getting out of bed
    Lyrics: Nope

    Very cold this morning and the traffic was madness today but I was out much later than normal.
    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.
  • Swim done 450m done on grey wet morning. Possibly run later.
    Last hard: getting out of bed this morning
    Last rest: Christmas day
    Lyrics no
  • LMH: 4 day working week starts in 2019 so January 7 is my first official non-working Monday. Can't wait!
    December 31 (and 24) are Bank Holidays here and I took January 2 off as well. So I have another 5 days off, 2 days of work and 3 days off. I think I can get used to this :)

    When is your next race?

    Ale: That's scary! Was it one of those Samsung Galaxy phones that got all the bad press for exploding batteries?

    Hubby dropped his iPad yesterday. Screen is gone to pieces (literally) - 169 Euros for a replacement glass panel. Quite outrageous. I know why I have been giving Apple products a miss.

    Dustin: That's a tough session so soon after LTP

    I did my 10 miles in the end but it felt a bit laboured. So strange that some days fast pace comes so naturally (like my LT run on Tuesday) yet on other days even easy pace is a slog.

  • Good use of holiday there chicksta. I have the Brass Monkey HM on 13th January. Pain about hubbies iPad - is it not covered on your insurance? It's a funny old game this running lark.

    Traffic was very light here today Poppy - was there some event on locally?

    Hope you had a nice fire to warm up in front of OH.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Oh thought I'd posted yesterday but obviously not.

    What: a whole day of painting
    Why: we have some time and we need to paint before we get the new carpet before we can build the wardrobe.
    Last hard: that was!  I ache now!
    Lyrics: nope

    Yesterday was a rest day, well more baby visiting, another 2 new relatives (and another was born just before Christmas!). 

    Have a lovely evening all.
