Lyrics: I've been going out with a girl,
Her name is Julie

Another boy's name, with yesterday's being Alfie (as in What's it all about, Alfie) from the 60's film, Alfie. Cher, Millicent Martin, Cilla Black amongst others. 

What: short run, long stretch

Why: Tuesday, and ran longer yesterday

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


  • Lyrics not today!
    Cold windy and wet but not so bad as forecast so maybe a wee run on the way to yoga.

    I forgot that the UK shifts bank holidays for Christmas if it falls at the weekend. 

    Well done on the 68 plus yesterday Ale. 

    Glad you had a better group run yesterday Els. 

    Enjoy your last day off today Wabo. 

    I was thinking it must be a year or so since your 2nd op chicksta.  Good luck with the yoga challenge.

    Brr to the swim OH.

    Well done on the hill work emz. 15 x 30 sounds tough!

    What: some miles later
    Why: might find someone to run with - not sure what and when yet, will be quite breezy.
    Last rest: 3.1.22

    Lyrics: no

    Morning all
    Not nice weather here at all
    Alehouse enjoy the run and stretch
    Hazel don't blame you on wanting company
    What want to do a couple of miles but waiting out this weather
    Why don't fancy getting soaked
    Last hard yesterday
    Last rest 31/12
    Trying to make the most of my last day so I'm ironing 🤣🤣
    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can

    Morning again!

    Beautiful crisp cold winter's day. Sun is shining as it always does in these parts. 

    What: 3.4k d&d, largely off road and trying to avoid floods on some of my normal routes.

    Why Supposedly to loosen the legs but I'm not sure that they would agree. 

    Enjoy your runs everyone.

  • Got round Scapa and to yoga, about 4m without too much difficulty, some in the face hail and wind, coming out wind much stronger and v wet and was offered a lift home and didn't refuse! 
    Might be an indoor afternoon!
    Hope no one blows away!

    That sounds vile, Els. Absolutely stay inside weather.

    Ale: Can't decide whether you're being sarcastic about the sun 😉 As you write about flooding I guess you are 😊

    Hope you found company, Hazel.

    Fingers crossed work is kind on your return, Wabo.

    OH: we all have shitty runs.

    What: 20k run and day 3 of 30 yoga🧘🏼‍♀️ done
    Why: new year, new challenges
    Last hard: wind today
    Last rest: 30/12
    Lyrics: no

    Great birthday run Ale!
    Chick - belated (feet) anniversary wishes! Impressive run today
    Els - can't say I blame you, some days are for getting indoors!
    Hazel - did you find a victim?
    Emz - strong session, likewise yours too Hazel. Meant to say got the Pfitz 10k & HalfM book for Christmas, will be doing some reading ahead of the spring/summer!

    Looks like I didn't post yesterday (7 miles easy recovery)
    Today - 10 miles including 4 at MP with 10x100 strides
    Why - MCR week 6
    last rest - 14/10
    last hard - that was. Markedly colder than of late at just over freezing (2c)
    lyric - oh yes, classic tune!
  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭

    Just did a mile today but did walk about 3 miles with a friend this morning and did hoovering. That's core work isn't it?

    Still off work so holiday indulgence is still ongoing...

    Dustin that sounds like a good read!

    Els stay upright, sounds a bit blustery up there! Turned into a gorgeous sunny day here, albeit cold.
