Tuesday 29th September 2020 - I'll sing myself to sleep


Lyrics - I'll sing myself to sleep
             A song from the darkest hour

Glad work was enjoyable Alehouse - thanks for the inspiration for the lyrics.

I don't know if running before Sunday is a good idea or not but I think I'm going to try a few miles this morning - it's been days since my last very short run. My knee isn't good walking though I think it is a bit better than it was in the latter half of last week. Going to try to start the process with my GP today but obviously VC19 has complicated that and I don't know whether anyone will be happy to stick a needle in it or not in the circumstances. Need to find out though.

What:           easy miles
Why:            sanity
Last hard:    not running
Last rest:     28/9
If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Lmh sounds like a plan to me, you never know till you try. The run I mean. Good luck
    Lyrics yesterday were Joy &Pain by maze. Bit like my feelings for running after that 10k lol
    What 5 miles maybe in two runs
    Why chasing my best September miles ever
    Last hard yesterday
    Last rest 31/12/16
    Made a cake for Reggie, he's 3 today. It split so I plastered it with buttercream!!🤣🤣
    Only doing a drop off as they have all been poorly and it's safer. 
    Daughter and daughter in law birthday tomorrow so no celebrating going on for any of them

  • Sorry to hear that they are all feeling poorly still Wabo. I've actually decided not to run. I thought about it whilst walking Lola. Running today will have no positive effect on my run on Sunday but not running between now and then may mean that my knee is less painful - it's a no brainer really. I've also arranged a telephone consult with my GP to hopefully start the ball rolling on getting it sorted.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Morning,

    LMH: Good news on getting the ball rolling.

    Wabo: I hope the family start feeling better.

    Nothing for me as had head cold and feel awful second day so hope it shifts today .I am going to go out for a walk for fresh air in a kill or cue it sort of mode.

    What: walk
    Why: feeling ill
    Last hard Not running
    Lyrics: yes
    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.

    WP hope the fresh air helps. 
    LMH I think that sounds like the best plan for Sunday.

    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can

    Sorry to hear that Peter isn't well Els. Sounds as though you have your running confidence back :-)

    That's good Wabo - sometimes you don't feel the worst stiffness after a fall for a couple of days.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Sorry about typo's! 
  • Afternoon!

    Lyrics: yes!

    What: just over an hour off road plus long stretch session later

    Why: run to feel, and felt a lot better today. Perhaps it was due to a bit more sleep, or the conscious effort to sit down more when working! Did manage to take a tumble over a style but think I have got a way just with a bruised elbow. And Tuesday is long stretch day. 

    All sounds good, Els..although hope Peter is ok especially for this weekend. 

    And all sounds sensible, LMH!

    Shame you can't really enjoy the birthdays, Wabo. Hope you got a second run in. 
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
  • Alas confidence only back in company or on busy roads or paths. Wouldn't have done that route on my own yet though I love off road.
    Ale...hope P is ok to travel though I know really he should be home.
    Love an off road!
  • Is it still the stone causing Peter problems Els? I think you are doing great- you’ll soon be back running your favourite routes.

    That sounds positive Alehouse apart from the fall- hope there isn’t any damage. Difficult to be sensible on such a lovely day, just hope it was the right thing to do.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • Hugs coming your way Els and P. 🤗

    Ouch, ale.

    Sensible decision, LMH.

    Marathon for me but not the running kind...  Went to GP without appointment so waited over an hour (which is ok all things considered). They got my an emergency MRT scan at 11. Of course I waited there too and it was more 11:45 but to get one of those at short notice is a bit like gold dust ;). GP practice only opened again at 4 - another wait as again no appointment to discuss results which I knew deep down anyway. Same issue as 2013. One of the discs in my lower back is protruding again. Why I have less pain is anybody's guess. GP thinks it may be down to my strong core ;) so all that s&c wasn't in vain :D

    Seeing the specialist tomorrow. Fingers crossed I can get one of these infiltration injections at short notice. If not I just go private I think. Don't want to jeopardize our hols...
  • Evening

    Keep up those miles for JOG Wabo. Shame about the lack of birthday celebrations for your family.

    Hope the fresh air helped WP and the cold clears soon.

    Glad you feelbetter today Ale, hopefully no extra aches tomorrow from the tumble.

    Nice outing Els and more healing vibes to Peter.

    Glad you got to see a doc and also a scan Chicksta, fingers crossed that you will get helpful treatment in time for your hols.

    Good planning LMH.

    What: group trot
    Why: Tuesdaay
    Last hard: getting OH to come with us - he did though.
    Last rest: 30.03.

    Lyrics: no

    Wabo - happy birthday to Reggie

    Els and Pete hope all is ok
