Lyrics: For here am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world, Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

Another transport themed song. Lyrics are taken from the middle!

What: short run, long stretch

Why: ran longer yesterday plus am working
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Lyrics nope!
    Rolled into Thurso late last night but comfortable night after got upgraded from the cabins at back of hotel to the main building. Sitting on the boat just now...should be home 11am ish. 
    Still tired but hope to get a little run later then it's off to Bristol Fri night! Not sure about all this travel lark!
    Enjoy your day all.

    Oh, another race, Hazel. Exciting! Chafing sounds horrid. I think that's why I don't like to run with a backpack. 

    Els: Good news about the upgrade. You do travel a lot :)  Hope you can get a run in. 

    Lyrics: yes!!

    Yesterday's were Road to Nowhere, Talking Heads. 

    9 miles with strides today. Thick fog but I felt pretty good. I guess that rest day yesterday was the right decision. I went for a walk in the afternoon, so nothing strenuous.

    afternoon all
    els glad you are home, now I think?
    Chick its lovely to see you coming back strong
    hazel nice one, are you trying to beat my 30 medals for the year? lol
    Lyrics yep
    Alehouse have a great day, sorry your team didn't beat arsenal (but they seem to be doing really well right now)

    What: only a mile done
    why: allowing glutes to ease up and sciatica to go
    last hard: /this morning
    Last rest: 28/2

    Getting hair do done later!!

    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can

    Chick, you end up travelling more when live on a relatively small island. Family are away and things like specialised medical stuff also. but good to be home even if the weather's awful today!

    Short run to and from yoga and 3m round scapa, wind got up again.

    Still kinda tired!

    Chick, re running with a backpack, there are loads of different ones, just need to find the ones that suit you! My current one doesn't chafe at all, or the one I had previously. Peter's, which fits him perfectly, gave me serious chafing over the collarbones when I borrowed it once. Ended up with weeping patches which stuck to my hair while asleep, rather squeamish friend who we were staying with was not happy looking at me!

    Ale - hope you fitted something in around work
    chick - decent session!
    wabo - ohh hair do - very nice. Never had you down as a blue rinse girl 😉😂
    Hazel - hope the speedy set was fun
    Els - happy travels! I agree re backpacks - always worth trying a few for comfort. 

    What - club set of 5x600 at 3k pace with long (3m) warm up and a 2m cool down
    why - taper week 1
    last rest - 14/10
    last hard - bits of tonight 
    lyric - yes
  • alehousealehouse ✭✭✭

    Yes, Dustin, short run post work then an hour of stretching the old body!

    Dentist report: 56 minutes of root canal work yesterday was not pleasant! And the temporary crown has just dislodged: will have to phone the dentist again in the morning!

    Never really got on with backpacks and running. The latter is hard enough without adding weight!

  • Just Aqua Walking today.

    Beautiful day yesterday. Despite having plumber in to replace HW tank, still managed swims around wreck morning and afternoon (brave during first when likely to be no hot water on return) along with jog to Aqua Walking and longer jog back (2.5 miles).
    Weather cooler and windy again today.

    Ellie's first birthday today - video call with her this afternoon. A balloon is the big interest.
