Friday 8th November A trailer for sale or rent


Lyrics: A trailer for sale or rent, 
Rooms to let, 50 cents

What: short run, hopefully in daylight

Why: work gets in the way and it gets dark too early

Stopped raining in the early hours but lots of flooding. Helping at cross country tomorrow but the event is in doubt I believe.
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.


  • Work shortly
    Maybe yoga later
    Lyrics no
  • Morning

    Almost the same as Ale today and will also keep it short as work is beckoning here.

    Have a good Friday all.

    What: shortish recovery
    Why:  longer run would be in the dark and a couple of those planned for the weekend anyway
    Last rest: 4.10.

    Lyrics: no
  • DustinDustin ✭✭✭
    morning all
    Chick - ouchie
    What - easy lunchtime
    Why - XC tomorrow and Sunday
    Last Rest - 20 days
    Last hard - Tuesday
    did 3k tempo yesterday rather than strides, more to keep warm than anything else....
  • Morning,

    Chick: I will ouchie like Dustin and double it ouchie ouchie!
    Ale: No rain here for past 2 days!
    Dustin: Enjoy XC tomorrow I do miss it.

    What: 4 miles
    Why: because my body let me-yay
    Last hard: Virus
    Lyrics: Yes indeed

    First time I have had energy to run two days on trot I kept it short on purpose and seems to be best call.Lets hope I can run longer tomorrow or even just run tomorrow!
    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.

    have a great weekend all, I hope to park run and tai chi tomorrow morning if nothing happens with the baby
    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • Morning.

    Another late start here which is nice but does mean I will be running when it’s a bit warmer, rather that than cold and wet though- I’m not looking forward to resuming training when I get home.

    chamolk - unfortunately I don’t sleep well so 0600hrs is very good for me.

    chicksta - sorry about the dental work but it will feel good once it’s sorted.

    Double xc sounds tough!

    A run and a natter is a good way to put the world to rights Wabo.

    Lots of flooding at home too according to MiL Alehouse.

    Good that you were able to run again Poppy.

    Have you recovered now OH?

    Much nicer to get a run in the light Hazel.

    Not seen whilst running but on a walk in a State Park yesterday afternoon- a raccoon, a bobcat, two Gopher tortoises and the one that cheered us most, a lovely whippet 😊

    What:          Easy miles of some description 
    Why:            It’s too nice not to 
    Last hard:    Staying cool yesterday (I have some heat rash)
    Last rest:     2/11

    Lyrics - yes.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Thanks guys. Tooth is throbbing but just about bearable. 

    Impressive wildlife spotting, LMH. Especially a bald eagle. Wow. 
    My dentist reckons that my recent rubbish streak was tooth related as my body will most likely have been fighting an infection for a couple of months now. So, hey, there's hope.

    Great you managed two runs in a row, poppy

    Ale: Are you running every day at the moment? 

    Dustin: Good luck for the weekend

    OH/Wabo: I should start doing more yoga too. Feeling a bit guilty. I need that tooth sorted first as I can't do any inversions - blood flow to the head makes it worse. 

    What: gym session
    Why: schedule says rest but I skipped yesterday's s&c to fit the dentist in
    Last hard: toothache
    Last rest: 27/10
    Lyrics: Yes
  • Afternoon folks

    Hopefully so Chick

    What - 11.2 miles over hills/trails
    Why - start of base training
    Last rest - yesterday

    Lyrics - yes, think I know 2 versions of this one
  • That makes sense chicksta.

    My run this morning couldn’t have had a much different profile chamolk but I think yours probably did you more good.

    We made a last minute decision to catch the trolley out and run back along the beach as far as possible before finishing off along the (quiet) road. Hard work at the end as the heat rose but very enjoyable.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

  • From today's commute home
  • Lovely OH, looks like the same sort of weather I had today . Couldn't be much different to the torrential rain in other areas 
  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭
    Yeah beautiful day here too. Hope everything's ok at home lmh. Derby was just on the news for flooding.

    What: walked a lot today
    Why: decided to walk to play date so think I pushed Lucas 5miles in total
    Last hard: settling Lucas this afternoon. He's been very grumpy!
    Lyrics: nope

    Yesterday's were Michael Jackson and black or white.

    Wp does this mean you're feeling better? Fingers crossed.
    Lmh sounds like a nice run

    Have a lovely evening
  • Evening!

    Great photos, OH! Will have a pint for you in The Griffin shortly! Weather here was totally different to yesterday, although probably not up to the standards that some are having either home or abroad! Probably slightly lucky here with only about three weeks rain in 24 hours compared to over a month's worth elsewhere.  Tomorrow's cross country is on but the course has been changed, I believe. 

    What: short and easy run just as it was getting dark.

    Why: all I am doing is short and easy running, and yes, Chick, have run every day for the last three weeks or so, plus a couple or more fitness suite sessions per week which are largely stretch orientated.
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
  • Beautiful OH and chamolk. Unfortunately the fly screen on our balcony and a lack of technical expertise prevent me from joining in 😊

    Fortunately there is a good flood plain still in existence where we live but MiL reports flooding the like of which I haven’t known in the time I’ve lived there.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
