Lyrics: They mean a trip to Paris or Rome
For someone else but not for me

Hope those who journeyed yesterday travelled well.

What: legs will decide

Why: not felt very fresh on my runs this week. Ideally it will be something quicker but will play it by ear, or rather legs and heart! Will run a bit later as well today to see if it makes a difference. 

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 - Going Nowhere by Oasis.

    Cross posted with you yesterday chicksta - a rest won't do any harm. Hope the doc gives you the good to go.

    Nice session emzap.

    Hope you enjoy your run today Alehouse, lovely morning for it here.

    What:          hopefully a couple of easy miles
    Why:           rehab
    Last hard:   the last few weeks have been quite hard
    Last rest:    2/9

    Lyrics - no.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Morning again!


    Lyrics are lines two and three: title in line one. 

    What: 15 mins warm up, 2 x 4 mins hard with 2 mins recovery, 15 mins warm down.

    Why: step 4 part 2 of speedwork plan. Have run parkruns at a faster pace...and I still haven't run a parkrun hard. Legs just wouldn't go any faster today! 11 degrees and breezy.

    Hope there were no repercussions from yesterday's outing LMH, and today is ok also.

    It has to be.
    Last 24h has been hard and not a lot of exercise. I have been doing my demented polar bear ward loop reps!
    Lyrics no

    Your run sounds amazing, em. Well done. Oh, I love it when speedwork feels good. Doesn't really happen that much :) 

    Fingers crossed, OH. Hope it goes well.

    Are you allowed to run every day if things feel OK, LMH? Hope it all goes to plan.

    Ale: It's a step in the right direction. One day we'll all run fast parkruns again. 

    Well, my doctor's appointment didn't go quite as planned. I can stick to short run segments every other day but real running should only be resumed after 6 months. He said the general 3-4 months rule applies to "normal" people doing the odd light jog or playing an easy tennis double. I said "so you think I'm not normal?" Him: "no, you run marathons. That's not normal in my book and I bet you're a bit obsessive with your training" :D  Ahem... touché I would say ;) 

    I can live with it, I think. The other 6 months after October may be a different story. On the other hand it means I can have a lie-in when it's cold, dark and nasty and resume proper training at the end of April 2021. I wish we didn't have Covid so I could use the gym more. Or am I being overly cautious? 

    At least I got the sign-off to go hiking and mountain-biking which bodes well for our October holiday.

    Nice session Emz, you too Ale.
    Chick - That's pretty reasonable news, and definitely positive about the holiday

    what - 5 miles mostly on road
    why - hammy checking, no issues, legs still stiff though
    last rest - 31/08
    last hard - today but more as work delayed going out until almost 2pm, and I started work at 6:30. call with NY at 7 tonight, long day. there will be beer at 7.30
    Deferred London until 2022, I'll be V55 then, I get 5 more minutes for a GFA....

    LMH hope the run today was good and you have no effects from it.
    Chick annoying but not surprising I guess?  Though I of course think you are totally normal :wink:
    Ale good session
    Dustin that is a loooooong day
    OH hope all goes well.

    What: walk today with friends and babies
    Why: it was meant to be a run day, but they offered to walk with me after we'd had a picnic for lunch and it was really really nice
    Last hard: I'm very tired today!
    Lyrics: possibly...

    Have a lovely day all.
