Morning!

Lyrics: XXXX, XXXX, the greatest gift that I possess
I thank the Lord that I've been blessed

Yesterday's were Happy Talk, originally from the musical South Pacific; more recently covered by Captain Sensible

What: a run at some point plus stretches

Why: torrential rain at present

Race well, Wabo!
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Afternoon!

    I suspect that the sunshine is delayed in the post, Hazel

    Hope that your run was better than your team's performance, Wabo!

    It poured until half past one so I gave it a few minutes and yes, it appeared to be a dry window, and so it was! Still very dark.

    What: just over 5k at a gentle pace, preceded by a long stretching session

    Why: wouldn't have wanted to run any faster today! HR too high for the effort; perhaps it was being over-dressed. And getting back into the stretching routine.

    The river bank was very greasy and had to circumnavigate some very large puddles.

    Wait! What? A race? Hope you had a gd one, wabo.

    5k sounds good, Ale.

    Nice bit of gardening, Hazel.

    Draining discussion with my sister-in-law yesterday. She refuses to get the jab. Apparently we're all guinea-pigs of the pharma industry. No way a safe vaccine could have been created in sch a short time. Sigh.
    I guess that's one person I won't see in the foreseeable 🤷🏼‍♀️

    5 miles walked. Planning a bike ride tomorrow. We're forecast 25 degrees 😊

    Chick...freezing here after a milder day yesterday when was working!
    Had a 15m west coast walk with cafe lunch and short part of walk with P in the middle. Nice but much colder than had dressed for...glad I borrowed Ps wooly hat for the return leg! So many rabbits and quite a few oystercatchers.
    Other than that baked bread and banana cake and not a lot else. Not a day for the garden! 
    Still not able to run....I tried!
    Wabo...hope race was good.
    Need to get back into yoga routine! Though I can go to a class from Tues!
    Nice running all!
