Sunday 11th August 2019 - If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one

Morning.

Lyrics - If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one

Hope you're both feeling better soon Wabo and OH.

Enjoy your Shetland trip OH - no strong winds to disrupt it up there?

I was dreaming MiL and hospital appointments, think it may have caused me  little more stress than I realised. Sore throat and tired this morning, maybe a bit on the raggedy edge but I wasn't planning on going far with these winds anyway so hopefully another easy day will see me right.

What:            hopefully a MLR
Why:             it's about the miles at the minute
Last hard:     sleeping
Last rest:      27/7

Yesterday's lyrics - Run To The Hills - Iron Maiden.
If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Morning!

    Hope you don't feel too battered and bruised today, Wabo! Did you go to the Lane? I bet you felt rough until just before 7, made a major improvement around 7:15 and well on the road to recovery a few minutes later!

    Enjoy Shetland, OH!

    How was pr 481, RFJ?

    What: short run/long fitness suite

    Why: Sunday, being careful...and it is pouring again and is supposed to continue for most of the day

    Lyrics: no

    Morning lmh. 
    Rough night for me, so many aches and pains. Laying debating about my lsr which should be 10 miles today. The impact has left me with a really sore neck and shoulder
    What probably  1-4 miles 
    Why how I feel
    Last hard yesterday
    Last rest 31/12/16
    Next weeks long run will be 12 miles so I gotta just go with that and forget this week's? 

    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • We managed to stay dry until about 1100hrs Alehouse - hope your rain goes through and you can manage a dry run.

    If you don't feel up to it you can't do it Wabo. Any chance of fitting at least a MLR in during the first half of the week then doing the 12 next weekend? I think the midweek MLRs really help.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Well done Chicksta, a well deserved beer. Thanks for the pics.  My OH thought it might be Elbsandstein.

    Ouch to the jelly fish OH.

    Don't get blown away LMH.

    Agree with LMH wabo, no point in making the aches worse.

    Better short run and long fitness than the other way around Ale if it is that wet. Do you have extra exercises for your back at the moment or do you more have to work around it?

    What: 14.3 progressive done before breakfast
    Why: warm today and family duties
    Last hard: first half hour sluggish due to lack of pre run coffee
    Last rest: 09.08.

    Lyrics: standard no

    Afternoon!

    Managed to stay dry! Helped at a 5k this morning and got a bit of running in, then to fitness suite whilst it rained, then off to daughter's for more gardening. I have a couple of back strengthening exercises, Hazel, and to be honest I am able to do the majority of the rest of my sequence without too much bother. Back is far better than a week ago...and hope the consultant doesn't tell me any different tomorrow. 

    Decent long run of the progressive variety, Hazel!

    Hope that there is not too much reaction to yesterday's race, Chick!

    Did you manage a run, Wabo? Trust it was better than you anticipated!

    Afternoon all

    Ale Parkrun 481 was windy but was holding back as racing today (wish I hadn't now). 22:30 yesterday and 45th at Swindon

    Burnham Beeches 10k today, aim was to beat Lethbridge 10k time back in June that was 46:15 and conrinue the comeback.

    Knew that this was a slightly harder and more undulating course.

    After a very poor congested start (thought I was standing where I should) but it seems that there were about 15-20 in a group that all I will say should not have been there and were making comments about how fast people were.... and the bumping and barging...

    Picked up running with a very fit Reading RR V70 and we ran together... however I just could not seem to pick up the pace and just felt tired esp on the hills.

    Other than that all was going ok and was looking at about a 46:30 before the last hill, but again lost strength and leg started to drag badly as as came in to the finish field, went sprawling as leg gave way again, lost all pace and had to hobble the last 200m. (don't see the specialist again now till Oct) so annoyed as no warning really and no pain, and will likely now do Oldbury 10m in Sep as a result.

    47:39 on the watch, dont know about position or Chip times.

    Mrs RFJ also struggled with her feet, but was happy with 62 mins

    More exercises to do. But at least I can still run... (just not the distances I want to)....

    Take care

  • I don't think I could run that far without even a coffee Hazel - well done.

    Good to hear that your back is feeling better Alehouse. Hope the Consultant has good news for you tomorrow.

    That's a long wait RFJ - is there no way to bring it forward?
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    My run was lovely actually. 4 miles all round a golf course in wooded paths.
    Glad I only did 4 
    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • Pleased to hear that you felt up to the four Wabo.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    LMH, it has already been brought forwards from November :-) NHS I presume don't perceive it to be serious. Physio has tried , but to no avail... so looks certain I have nerve damage somewhere.... problem is its causing no pain....
