Saturday 25th December 2021 A ray of hope flickers in the sky


And a very Happy Christmas! Frohliche Weinachten!

Lyrics: A ray of hope flickers in the sky
A tiny star lights up way up high

Hope that you enjoyed yesterday evening, Chick! 

What: short, easy run

Why: easy running day
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.


  • Morning!

    Have a great Christmas Day all!

    Thanks for the thread Ale.

    What: abandoned recovery run, might try later at the PIL.
    Why: what looked like a wet road was a very icy road was struggling to run/walk at all. For once applied common sense and went home after one lap.
    Last hard: staying upright
    Last rest: 23.12.21

    Lyrics: no
  • Happy Christmas folks and thanks for lyrics I can recognise Ale!
    Post lunch inertia and a jigsaw.
    Pre lunch v short run...2m and a similar length walk with R who is PCR neg after travels.
    Lots of family on both sides not so fortunate it would seem. out if it's icy!
    Only one cooking mishap where I left the pan of milk unattended on the job! Otherwise using a strange and small oven went ok!
    Now tackling a fiendish jigsaw.
    Hope Santa got his orange Lucas.
    Orange in her stocking is our grandaughters fav present so far though won't see her til Monday we think.
    Have a good day all!
  • I'd love to do a jigsaw, Els 😊

    Sensible choice, Hazel. No point in trying to run on an unrunnable surface. Cheese fondue is sooo great on a cold night

    Enjoy your respective Christmas dinners, all.

    Cold day here, so just a walk. But a beautiful sunset 🌇  on the river

  • Evening!

    Quiet! Hope that you have all had a good day!

    What: 4k off this road this morning

    Why: sanity in the middle of cooking

    Too much to eat at lunchtime and have not been interested in food since!

    Lucas's choice for Santa is to be highly commended: Santa definitely needs some healthy eating tips! 

    Icy roads are not the best for running, Hazel: very sensible to abandon!

    Not done a jigsaw for too many years, Els!

    Have been stripping the turkey and listening to 70 years of Christmas number ones, so plenty of material for the next few days!

    Enjoy the rest of the day!

    Lucas was so excited to find orange peel left by father Christmas. More interested in that than the presents he got 🤣😂. We are taking some of the presents to my dad's as it was just all a bit overwhelming!

    Christmas Day parkrun here. It was more of a parkslide, so muddy and wet! But lovely to run in company.

    Ale also eaten far too much here 😂🤣 but then a food coma is part of Christmas isn't it?

    Fröhliche Weihnachten chick! Hope you had a good celebration yesterday.

    Els good to hear about negative tests. Hope you can see little Ellie soon!

    Hazel, sensible! Your cold snap is lasting a while!

    Now to hit the chocolate 🤣

    Happy Christmas all!
