Friday, 1st February 2019 - the handshake seals the contract

Morning :)

Lyrics: The handshake seals the contract
From the contract

Didn't manage to post yesterday

LMH: Hope you feel better after the jab. Freezing fog is just the worst things for asthmatics.

Gobi: you ran more miles than me and you're a cyclist ;)

RFJ: Good luck and I hope you get some answers

10 slow miles yesterday and hoping for 9 today. It's very cold though and windy so I may cut it short.

Comments

  • Morning.

    Cold here again and windier chicksta - I've had enough of winter!

    That sounds dire re the travel Alehouse, are things better? My not quite SiL will be looking to drive from here to Manchester tomorrow. I guess as long as they are moving around they probably are just niggles.

    Nights definitely get harder as you get older Pammie though easier if you're doing them consistently. I fund the thing with shifts was to try and keep a normal sort of routine so if I was off a night shift it would be up at whatever time, breakfast, wait an hour then out for my run the same as if I were 9-5, running was always after an early shift though - couldn't get myself up and out of the door early enough to go before! 

    Hope you get some answers RFJ.

    I think I'd still be trying to get warm again Gobi.

    Good job you got the roof fixed OH! Hope you're enjoying a roaring fire.

    What:           I'd like a MLR but it will depend on conditions underfoot.
    Why:            marathon miles
    Last hard:    running through the weather
    Last rest:     27/1

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

    Weather is a blimming pain in the bottom, Day 3 of no outside running .We had snow last night which got rained on and is lethal!It looks like first outside running will be Sunday/Monday.

    What: Wii sports coach, exercise bike and treadmill
    Why: The weather and plan B
    Last hard: See above
    Last rest: 31/1
    Lyrics: Yes
    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.

    Morning!

    The roads seem fine now, LMH: got to work more quickly than usual yesterday! Pavements are dire though!

    Lyrics: no

    What: short run off road

    Why: yesterday was harder than usual.
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Morning all
    Well after a light dusting last night and no more than an inch overnight, the South grinds to a halt!
    Schools and colleges closed but trains ran OK (well the standard 5-10 minutes late)

    What - lunchtime miles
    Why - easy running
    last rest - last Monday
    last hard - Tuesday

    lyric - oh yes
  • chickstachicksta ✭✭✭

    Lost the will to live after 6 miles. Wind was brutal and I hadn't expected so much ice. So 6 miles run and 25 mins of yoga done.

    Enjoy the snow :)

    Morning all

    Yesterday the lyrics were February Stars by Foo Fighters

    Last hard: Tuesday

    Lyrics : 100% yes

    Morning again!

    25 minutes slow off road running: rather tricky underfoot. WOuld have been quite pleasant otherwise. 

    Unlikely that any parkruns will be on tomorrow around here I would have thought. May stroll to the newish one at the end of my road and see though. Start/finish area quite icy.

  • It was definitely warmer and a bit less slippery than yesterday but still well dodgy in places, a better run than yesterday's though (not that that was difficult).
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭
    afternoon all
    well i didnt know yesterdays lyrics, I feel like todays are very familiar too!
    alehouse well done for getting out there! I bottled it this morning 
    lmh glad  to see you got out there as well
    WP, I feel your pain, I am actually thinking about treadmills...
    dustin, our schools haven't closed, hope your lunchtime miles are good
    chick hope you get your 9, I did know your lyrics

    what: meeting oh after to work for a 30 min off road if snow is still around
    why: it is nicer than pavement
    last hard: yesterday am
    last rest: 31/12/16

    have a good day and weekend all 
    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • Pammie*Pammie* ✭✭✭
    Afternoon.

    I feel for those of you that have tricky snow and ice conditions don't know if we had any it was expected but all wet here
    Went for run round the block up to now furthest I have ran is 4 minutes before walking. Decided see if I could go further, then I felt OK if a little puffy. See if I could do a mile I did slow but as Gobi said yesterday its all relative

    What: 1.5 miles
    Why: getting back to it
    Last Hard: supposedly that
    Lyrics no 
  • Where has the day gone again? At least it is now Friday evening and the weekend is beckoning.

    Hope the weather clears soon for those affected. 

    What: do I really have to go out today? 5 recovery planned
    Why: don't mind the wet from above (large wet snowflakes currently) but several cms of slush are not a pleasant prospect.  Will wait until its dark so I can't see just how nasty it is.
    Last hard: motivation
    Lyrics:no
  • Well done Pammie.

    I seem to be spending a lot of my time with wet feet Hazel but that's where the merino socks are great.

    Enjoy the run with your OH Wabo.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • 'Fraid I'm going to take the CBA option LMH.  Don't do it very often. Will just take Sunday's rest day today and do the recovery then instead.
  • RFJRFJ ✭✭✭
    Afternoon all

    No answers from the specialist as neither of us could get to the hospital... due to roads being closed because of the snow on Marlborugh Downs
    so now have to wait for a new appointment

    What 4m snow run (about  8 inches here in Swindon)
    Why - why not
    Last hard - staying upright 
    last rest - Weds

    most local parkrun are already cancelled tomorow, so may try and travel to Andover depending on roads..

    Lyrics - yes

    Take care
  • alehousealehouse ✭✭✭
    Evening!

    Shame about the appointment, RFJ. Is that work d&d now? When does the new one start?

    re parkruns, my nearest two are off (Burnage, Fletcher Moss): OL, if you hear of one that's on let me know!

    Griffin in about an hour, OH!

  • Sounds good AH! :)

    Icy 4mile run, swim midday, then Yoga this evening.
    Travelling again this weekend so fewer opportunities
    Last hard some yoga poses
    Last rest yesterday
    Lyrics not a clue

    (parkrun cancelled here due to ice although just sleety rain falling now)
  • alehousealehouse ✭✭✭
