DustinDustin ✭✭✭
Morning all

Lyric - When routine bites hard and ambitions are low

What - steady lunchtme miles - legs permitting
Why - jaded , tired, want to get back to normal
last rest - 3 weeks?
last hard - yesterday was a busy day all round

    Lyrics: yes!

    What: will see when I get going

    Why: jaded, tired, bad night's sleep

    LEJOG sounds like a target, Wabo! Wonder when you will get there!

    Emz: understand you re dad; not seen my two sons since mid-March. 

    Good to see you, Chamolk.

    Hope you get news about your visit to Aberdeen sooner rather than later, OH!

    A good day's exercise yesterday, Hazel!
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
  • Morning.

    Yesterday's lyrics - Everyday Is Like Sunday by Morrissey.

    Nice running emzap - is that your longest post Lucas? Is your dad too far away for a socially distanced visit?

    I hear you Dustin - feeling much the same.

    Glad you were able to pop in Chamolk. A milestone for your boys there - they'll be wanting to go further and faster now :smile:

    Alehouse - I had a really bad night too. Hoping to feel energised by a run, just need to get myself out.

    OH - an exciting journey to look forward to then!

    What:            easy miles
    Why:             to hopefully feel better
    Last hard:     coping with the chaos around my new job
    Last rest:      15/5

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

    Lmh it's the longest post pelvic problems and without stopping. I did a trail run a while ago but that involved a lot of stopping. 

    Rfj meant to say sorry to hear about your fall. Hope you're feeling in a better place soon.

    Chamolk nice to see you.

    Ale I mostly feel for my dad and Lucas' relationship, Skype isn't the same at all especially at 8 months old.  Lmh my dad's 2 hours away so sadly too far.

    What: a walk and hopefully Pilates
    Why: see how busy work is
    Last hard: sleeping past 4
    Lyrics: nope

    Have a lovely day all

    Morning again!

    What: 11.2k, largely off road although the surfaces are hard

    Why: extending the longer run. Was not the best but it is in the bank, and despite how I felt it was a reasonable pace. Usually I feel as if I could do more; today I was not inclined to match your 12k Emz! May have been lack of sleep, lack of food, yesterday's gardening etc etc.

    Seems some of us are finding the start into the new week a bit tough. Sympathies to all struggling with such resticted family access still.

    Hope your legs let you out at lunch Dustin. No eurovision for me.

    New job LMH? Good luck!

    Nice long run Ale. Ditto yesterday emzap.

    Hope your trip to Aberdeen is sorted soon OH.

    What: short recovery this evening
    Why: loosen up the legs and mind
    Last hard: Monday
    Last rest: 30.03

    Lyrics: no
  • How do you feel today after the longer run emzap? I guess that a socially distanced meeting wouldn't really help anyway. Hopefully we'll soon be able to have family meetings and hug.

    Mine felt worse than the stats would suggest too Alehouse.

    Hazel - a new part time job to run alongside the existing one. Seemed like a good idea at the time (full of noble intent and wanting to do my bit) but I fear it could be horribly stressful. We shall see. If it's not working out I can always resign though it's a job that needs doing and I have the time and skills so feel I 'should'. Enjoy your run later.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Alehouse I have until November 4th and it will take all of that 🤣
    Hazel hope the short recovery was ok
    Alehouse impressive distance! 
    Emzap feel for you re your dad and Lucas but I'll say that I was away from Cleo early on when she was in Peru, we're so close now. It can happen,k skyping. 
    Lmh hope you're ok 
    Dustin hope you're ok too, think lots of us getting jaded
    I know it's Tuesday and late but I wanted to post
    What, 2.5 turbo on treadmill 8x 30 secs at 8mm, 15 mins hula and tai chi
    Why is how it panned out
    Last hard all that
    Last rest 31/12/16
