Monday 8th February -I was walkin' down the street

WaboWabo ✭✭✭
I was walkin' down the street
Concentratin' on truckin' right
Easy ones I think, had two lots in my head
Great photos els and oh! 

Great miles Dustin
What somehow 5 miles
Why snow is all around
Last hard yesterday 
Last rest 31/12

Only managed 5k but it was lovely in the forest yesterday
possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 


  • Morning

    Also liked yesterday's pics Els and OH. 

    OH - that looks very brrr!

    Els - great running in not so easy conditions.  Bet the dogs loved the outing as well.

    Nice trail running Dustin.

    Keep that wind up north Chicksta.

    Well done to your OH on the 5k Wabo. 

    What: recovery
    Why: Monday
    Last hard: yesterday's MLR turned into an LR which I ran a bit too hard considering I had doms from the strength work on Saturday
    Last rest 30.03.

    Lyrics: no - even easy ones.

    Quick post. Waiting for GP to call. Had a bad reaction, probably to some antibiotics, or possibly my long list of meds plus general anaesthetic not mixing well with the Covid jab.

    Lyrics: yes

    Exercise: no

    Yesterday's were MacArthur Park, Richard Harris. A classic and well worth a listen.
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
  • Oh dear Ale....antibiotics probably most likely culprit....hope you're ok!
    Easy day here. More snowfall overnight!
    Shopping done soup made and Tiffin in progress.
    ..the dogs lived it though the younger one was tired at the end!
  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭
    oh dear alehouse, that is a pain.  hope it gets sorted.
    just back from a 3.5 mile run on the pavements, felt quite safe t o do so today.  But I did wear off road shoes!

  • Alehouse I hope you can get sorted with GP.

    Easy day here as well as a numb face and no feeling in hands binned my run it was that cold with snow and wind.

    Lyrics: yes

    Had a good run yesterday with faster 2 miles so happy with that:-)

    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.

    Ale - eek, please take things easy, hope you feel more human later
    Hazel - good work with the LSR
    What - easy 5 
    Why - recovery day
    last rest - 10/10
    last hard - Saturday/Sunday
    very very light dusting of snow falling this morning but it's freezing: had to break the ice on the bird feeders & the ground is rock solid.
    Will I get away with road shoes in the fields? Only one way to find out....
  • chickstachicksta ✭✭✭
    Oh no, Ale. Hope GP can help you. I ended up in A&E once after a horrible reaction to ATBs. Fingers crossed you're ok.

    Els: I'm sure your running buddies will want you back, especially when you bring cake ;) snow drifts sound like super hard work. How do the dogs cope? Their little legs are so short ;)

    Dustin: Hope it was ok to run in road shoes.

    Running in the forest sounds great, wabo. How did your other half hold up?

    Well done on that LSR, Hazel.

    OH: still shivering after looking at yesterday's pic ;) What's the temp at the moment? Air and water?

    Still very cold and windy here. Glad I'm not going anywhere :)
  • DustinDustin ✭✭✭
    No ice, but very cold, so stuck to roads for 4k out, 4k back, all very easy. 

  • alehousealehouse ✭✭✭

    After several sagas with receptionists both the GP and consultant have said don't take the antibiotics, but to start a new and different course if necessary. I have an emergency supply now but hope not to need them.

    Hope everyone is warm enough!

  • Swim and usual Monday group run (3), both in the snow.
    Roads too bad for ice breaker loch dip.
    Probably the right course of action, AH
    Lyrics no

    Sea Water 4.5⁰C
    Air temperature 1-2⁰C but wind chill making "Feels Like" a lot lower.
    Another 300m today

    Chicksta oh handled the run off road as he always does, really well annoyingly!! Lol. But said he runs better with me cos when he runs alone he sets off too fast and can't pace himself.
    I did lots today. 5 miles running and 3.3 walking. Not sure pavements will allow tomorrow though. 
    Poppy lovely to see you posting.
    Alehouse hopefully that sorts it
