Wednesday 8th May 2019 - When you say a prayer, does anybody hear?

Morning.

Lyrics - When you say a prayer, does anybody hear?

We are forecast a wet and windy day today - I guess I should be glad I'm recovering rather than training at the minute. It will make keeping the miles down easier anyway.

Great that you are able to build the mileage RFJ.

What:           short and easy/dentist
Why:            recovery/necessary evil
Last hard:    sleeping
Last rest:     4/5

Yesterday's lyrics - Let Us Move On - Dido.
If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    RFJ: That is great news you can build the mileage back up again.

    LMH: From yesterday the way I look at it no excuses over course I was a minute slower  it is what it is.At least i know the next 5k will be faster as a flat course that I know well:-)
    We have similar weather today!


    What: easy run
    Why: Because I can
    Last hard: Monday
    Lyrics Nope not a scooby:-)

    Off to weather proof my skin.......
    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.

    Morning!

    Lyrics: no

    What: Wednesday is supposed to be the quicker running day of the week. Whether that happens...

    Why: legs are tired, weather is not good, plans can be adapted as necessary! Won't know until I get running later!

    Are you at The Lane tonight, Wabo? Hope there is a performance to match Liverpool's yesterday from your boys...and the crowd who were amazing last night!
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
  • I am not particularly relishing the thought of a run at the moment - it is very wet, a bit breezy and cold here this morning.

    Hope your legs and the weather play ball Alehouse.

    How is your recovery going Dustin?

    Hope you have enjoyed your run Poppy.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Congratulations to your daughter OH.

    Good news rfj - both on mileage and the new appointment

    Urggh to the dentist LMH - hope that is nothing too uncomfortable.

    Wet today and windy tomorrow here.  Will probably adapt my plans as I have speedwork on the agenda for tomorrow.  Off to get some new running shoes later hopefully - we have a local powercut for most of the day so I will make the most of the extra time as I can't work.

    Have a good day everyone.

    What: recovery run
    Why: no speedwork after Tuesday's hills (from experience not a good combo)
    Last hard: leaving the pub at a sensible hour yesterday
    Last rest: 06.05.

    Lyrics: no

    What: 3 muddy miles I think later

    Have a good day all

  • It's just a check-up chicksta so I'm hoping he doesn't find anything to do whilst I'm there. Are you looking to try some different trainers?

    Hope the weather brightens up for you Wabo.

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

    Afternoon!

    I didn't particularly relish running today: wet, windy and cold here also. However decided to warm up and see what happened, and am generally quite pleased with the outcome given that I was in hat, gloves, waterproof jacket, two tops and tracksters!

    What: 5.2k off road warm up, 3 x 3 mins with 90 seconds recovery (reduced from last week's 2 mins), covering 666m, 690 and 700, so almost exactly the same as last week with shorter recovery. 1.3k warm down. 

    Why: trying to get faster as I get older!

    Don't know why I thought you were at home today, Wabo! I can feel your nerves!

    And I really ought to book up to see the dentist, also: hopefully only a check up required.

    Afternoon

    Warm and sunny here so of course I'm stuck in a windowless room all day!  Will try and run after if I have the energy.

    Well done on the run ale.

    Have a great day all 
  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭
    nice running alehouse, I have a troublesome tooth, I just know.....
    emzap, I do feel for you in the windowless room, my office was like that and then they put lovely big windows in the front and opened it all up.  Have a good day x

    LMH: I think it was Hazel with the trainers :)  I haven't posted as yet. Hope the dentist doesn't discover anything nasty.

    OH: Congrats on your daughter's Engagement

    Em: Sounds like you have lovely weather in Vienna.

    Poppy: luckily skin is waterproof :) 

    Wabo: Sorry to hear your tooth is still giving you grief. Mine has calmed down loads. I'm still very conscious of it though and tend to chew on the other side.

    Hazel: What session do you have? I'm quite glad I'm done with faster stuff for the time being. Looks like the P&L plan works though :)

    What: 7 miles plus 45mins of s&c
    Why: injury proofing myself for Two Oceans
    Last hard: being ill
    Last rest: Friday
    Lyrics: no

    Last day at work today, then off to Provence. Can't wait :)

  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭
    snap chicksta.  It settles then flares again

  • Ooops - sorry chicksta/Hazel.

    No work needed at the dentist:-)
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭
    Good news about dentist lmh :)

    6 km done. 50 min so a good run/walk pace. Was very busy though so spent most of the time trying to avoid people!
  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭
