    Morning!

    Glad I checked that the thread had been started as was just going to press the button to start.

    What: about 45 minutes, hopefully, and hopefully plus stretches

    Why: longer run day/need to do. Did manage some yesterday.

    Quite wet at present.

    Lyrics: don't think so

    Yesterday read the article below which confirms why we shouldn't be running hard at present. I know one of the contributors well and trust what he says:

    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Chamolk Glad to see you're ok. 
    Thankfully two family friends of mine who went to hospital yesterday were allowed back home to rest as they're over the worst of it. He's 70 and she's Late 60's.
    My little cousin who's a student nurse has it now but she's not too bad.

    Morning again!

    Are you now working from home, Wabo? And if so make sure you get a comfortable position. When I do my marking job I often find it easier to stand.
    Did you decide which jacket to get? I may have discount codes for sportsshoes.com (10%) and pete bland (15%): suspect they run out today!

    Good to see Chamolk at what must be a difficult time.

    Morning alehouse
    I've been wfh since last weds and the chair was awful. I have a different one now. I can't really stand due to the pc, printer all on a table and needing to be close to TV. Hopefully I won't need to sit too much today.

    Didn't get a jacket yet and it has to be wiggle as I have vouchers.  Have a good run, I'll join you in stretching today!!

    Morning all
    Good to see chamolk poke his head round the door!
    Ale - saw that article yesterday (one of our club runners works at AW), useful tips

    What - supposedly 1200s but legs still feel heavy so may just enjoy the sun today, push it a bit tomorrow
    Why - keeping in a routine
    Last Rest - 17/02
    Last hard - staying positive

    Morning again!

    Meant to say I agree with you that it is important where  one runs at present, Dustin. Today on my 8.2 k outing I perhaps passed 10 people, so barely one per kilometre; if I had chosen another route it might have been one for every ten metres. 

    Grey and cold for my run, and still is, with an icy breeze. Well wrapped up in my OMM jacket, hat, gloves, thermal top and tracksters. Had to take a slight detour as one of the paths I take is through a small riverside caravan park. No entry due to the virus. Would like to get out into the garden, but will have to settle for cataloguing my stamp collection for now. Stretching session later.

    Afternoon..

    Agree on picking one's routes carefully to avoid the masses.

    Just scanned the article above Ale.  Thanks.

    Hope you have a better night Wabo - do you at least take regular stand up and stroll around breaks?  Good news your friends and family are doing ok.

    Enjoy the sun Dustin, those 1200s can wait though I know what you mean about sticking to a routine - it has been very easy to drop the speedwork somehow. 

    I really should get up to run as well WP.  Well done for doing so.

    LMH is quiet today?  Hope she is ok.

    Evening

    What: 5.2 km in search of defibs, then runderwear challenge, 5 burpees, 10 press ups, 15 sit ups (I did alternative suitable for me) for 12 min as many times as possible, then 2 x 30 sec planks
    Why: it was our club challenge!  I found 3.  Day 8 of runderwear challenge
    Last hard: that was!
    Lyrics: nope

    Hi chamolk, good to see you
    Wabo glad they are over the worst and look after that back
    Ale take it easy

    This March has been my lowest ever March mileage, though there's been plenty of reasons why!

    Have a lovely day all
