Lyrics: The hell of Northern Paris - Roubaix
The Cote d'Azur and Saint Tropez
The Alps and the Pyrenees

I think Chick has used these before. 

Yesterday's sport related lyrics were "Gold", Spandau Ballet

What: probably a fitness suite day

Why: nice and cool

Cricket was good yesterday, and managed to sit in the shade for much of it. 

Well raced, Wabo

Hazel: plenty of gooseberries did indeed get eaten straight from the bush!

Lots of sport on today: England cricket, the end of the British golf open and the culmination of the Tour de France. Will probably miss most of it as I will be at a barbeque.
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Afternoon alehouse
    And all
    Lyrics no
    Tdf and golf will be watched here, I might have a nose at the cricket. It's too hot to do much for me
    What 2.25 off road with oh
    Why cos I love that he finds all the mud even now???
    Last hard that was
    Last rest 13/7
    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • Basic Pilates and swim
    Just awaiting Ellie arriving, they should be off the boat now.
    Sadly few gooseberries this year after sawfly almost totally defoliated our bush last year.

    Sounds like a pleasant recovery run, Wabo! Any results from yesterday?

    Never had so many gooseberries, OH! Both red dessert and the more traditional green.
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Haha, yes to lyrics. Favourite band and favourite sporting event 👍🏻

    Well battled yesterday, wabo.

    Nice bit of baking going on across the forum yesterday.

    Ale: I picked our gooseberries a couple of days ago and made jam using some frozen raspberries I still had and a hint of lemon peel. Turned out quite ok. A bit sour but hubby and I don't like our jam too sweet. Have fun at the BBQ.

    Els/OH: enjoy the family time

    Hope Cavendish manages to win the sprint royale today 🙏🏼

    Slow run to the shops today. I think I got away with consecutive runs 😊

    Another TdF viewer. Go Cav!  Currently enjoying Paris, haven't been for years.

    Great race result Wabo. Well done! Great you can have another go soon. 

    Hope the family has arrived well in the meantime Els and OH. Enjoy.

    Hope you can get in the odd glimpse of the sport Ale. 

    Nice jam making Chicksta. Hope everything is ok with the feet.

    What: 16.95 mile LR this morning / about 6 miles wandering this afternoon
    Why: mara miles
    Last hard: seems converting km to miles, should have done that little bit. Now: getting back off the sofa
    Last rest: 30.03.20

    Lyrics: no
