Morning!

Lyrics: You gotta take your time
You gotta say what you say

What: whatever the legs decide

Why: hoping for something quicker but if it doesn't happen that's fine!

Hoping to stay dry for once! 

Sounds like a good week so far, Hazel!

Wonder if WP will pop in and tell us that she has been naughty!

And when is your next little run, Chick?

Back later!
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 - I Don't Feel Like Dancin' by Scissor Sisters.

    I don't think Poppy is injured Alehouse?

    Forecast to be dry here until this afternoon.

    Hope you continue to enjoy your week off Hazel.

    That does sound like a dramatic change in weather chicksta.

    I may wrap up (chilly today - it really doesn't feel like August) and take my bike out for a spin just for a change of scene and some fresh air. Not being able to go for a good walk makes not being able to run worse. Boston (UK) marathon cancelled yesterday.

    What:            no running
    Why:             knee is fecked
    Last hard:     not being able to run
    Last rest:      26/8

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

    Morning again!

    Bike sounds like a good option, LMH

    Yes, I was surprised Boston cancelled so close to the event. And yes, I know WP isn't injured!

    Just wondering whether to do a MLR instead today. Don't seem to be able to fit in everything that I want to do!

    Morning all
    Lyrics yes
    Alehouse if you do an mlr hope it goes well, your day sounds like mine
    Lmh I should have known your lyrics yesterday. Hope you do get out on your bike and it's ok.

    What at least 4 miles not sure when
    Why lots to do plus going out to eat tonight
    Last hard last night
    Last rest 31/12/16
    Have a good day all
    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can

    Morning again!

    What: just over 2k warm up and then 3 x 3 mins hard with 2 mins recovery

    Why: decided to roll with the original plan. Step 3 part 2 of speedwork. Am finding it difficult to fit in a MLR, LSR, 2 times faster stuff whilst having some recovery runs. Tomorrow needs to be a recovery run so unless I am very fortunate there will only either be a MLR or a LSR this week. 

    And I stayed dry. Pretty cool: "feels like 11 degrees". Actually just about perfect for running now that the wind has dropped. tracksters, two tops, gloves. Definitely autumnal.

    Wabo: where are you on LEJOG?

    Morning all
    Ale - nice session
    Wabo - enjoy the feed tonight
    LMH - bike is no substitute but at least it's getting out!
    Not doing the virtual London, no inclination to run 26 miles at the moment.
    What - hopefully a run
    Why - aborted yesterday after 2 miles as hammy was niggly. Up in that there London town today, return to the office for the first time since late March. Desk still here, PC works, and my tea mug is untouched. Also found some kit (clean) in the drawer. 
    last rest - 20/06
    last hard - stopping after 2 yesterday grrr

  • A rest day might be a more sensible idea if your hamstring was that bad Dustin? 

    It's difficult to have it all Alehouse :-)
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Afternoon!

    Indeed, LMH! I'm grateful that I can run! How was the bike?

    Take care, Dustin!

  • Better than not getting out Alehouse though it wouldn’t have been this afternoon.

    Afternoon

    Hope you had a nice bike outing LMH.

    Have a nice meal out Wabo.

    Chilly Ale. Maybe work on a 10 day rather than a 7 day cycle?

    Good it was clean gear in your drawer Dustin. Hope the hammy eases up soon.

    What: a few miles in a while
    Why: not done any exercice today yet.
    Last rest: 30.03

    Lyrics: no
  • I hope you have better weather than us Hazel.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Evening

    What: just over 5km with a friend
    Why: 5 km a day
    Last hard: that was. My legs were so stiff! Had been to the park with a friend earlier and held Lucas for an hour which may have had something to do with it!
    Lyrics: I think I may...

    Lmh I guess good you got out but not the same is it?
    Ale I agree, a 10 day cycle may be a good idea?
    Wabo how was your meal?

    Have a great evening all, I'm cream crackered!
  • Harvested more tatties
    Installed roller blinds.
    A bit of painting preparation (both sorts)
    7 days down (on my no-run no-swim streak)
    Lyrics no

    Another good day, but could do with a bit of wind to blow the midges away!
