Morning.

Lyrics - Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while
            Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies

Happy Birthday Poppy!

Are you still not feeling well emzap?

I didn't manage much yesterday Hazel and it will be less today. Plans to run tomorrow may have been slightly ambitious too but we'll see.

Enjoy the run with company Alehouse. Another wet day forecast here.

Great that you have managed to use the time off running to such good ends chicksta.

What:           very little
Why:            back to the hospital for another investigation
Last hard:    not eating since breakfast yesterday/tolerating yesterday's procedure
Last rest:     8/7
If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Morning again!

    Was just looking back: I started building my new path on 25th June...and it has poured every day since!

    Not running until 9.30 so time for some stretches.

    And come on Spurs this evening! After the last couple of games I might not bother watching, Wabo!

    And morning again!

    What: 42 minutes with M75

    Why: he arrived at 9! Not much stretching went on! Good run...and it stopped raining just before we set off. Largely off road and a bit puddly in places. River high and has gone over the lower bank.

  • alehousealehouse ✭✭✭
    I meant I might not watch, Wabo! I know you will! Have you run yet? Where are you on LEJOG route?

    just back from 3.2 miles, little bit of forest and road and hills.  Very nice considering I was feeling very cba'd

    Afternoon

    Happy Birthday WP, hope it has improved since the bad start.

    Hope the hospital appointment today is bearable and you have been able to eat in the meantime LMH.

    Great news about the M75 run Ale, must have had a lot to catch up on.

    Sensible start after being ill emzap.

    So many challenges Wabo, I should look around instead of moping around because racing as I knew it is off indefinitely.

    Is it the big day tomorrow Chicksta? Good news on the hammies.

    What: whatever I can do in the shade later
    Why: too hot
    Last rest: 30.03

    Lyrics: no
  • DustinDustin ✭✭✭
    Hiya
    Best of luck LMH
    Ale - must have been good to catch up with M75
    Chick - I should take a leaf out of your book and resume daily stretching
    WP - happy 29th, celebrate accordingly
    Wabo / Ale - I'm hoping for a home win, as the cherries are just an hour down the road and they need the points...More importantly the "big" team I grew up loving (although most loathe them) need 3 points against Stoke tonight to help a return to the promised land...

    re garmin - it is dead as a post. Spoke to my clubs watch expert who strongly recommended the 245.
    Then spoke to garmin who offered to replace my 610 for £60 or let me have the 245 for £180 (it's £275 on amazon). Gone for the latter as my covid lockdown treat having saved at least that by not commuting for 3 months. So sent back old one today, hope to get the new one the middle of next week...

    What - 4 miles easy but with 8x100 strides
    Why - I am an athlete
    last rest - 20/06
    last hard - that was, still very muggy...
    Was supposed to be landing in Lanzarote about now for two weeks of volcano running. Boo Hiss...

    Boo hiss indeed, Dustin :( I think everyone's holiday plans need revision this year. Good news on the Garmin deal 👍

    Hope you're ok LMH.

    Happy birthday, poppy 🎂

    Ale: nice run with your friend. I think we have your weather now. 14 degrees and raining all day.

    Send me a bit of that heat, Hazel :)

    Nice beating the cnba fairy, wabo. That's a lot of challenges on your plate.

    Day 42 of s&c. And yes, tomorrow is the big day ... I'm a bit scared but mostly excited. My surgeon will have a hard time getting a word in when I fire off my catalogue of questions ;)

    Got to do again but don't fancy going alone
