Lyrics: There'll be bluebirds over...

Another natural world song! Yesterday's: Rainbow Valley, Love Affair.

What: another run to feel

Why: legs need some TLC

Els: I was saddened to hear about your friend. 

Chick: travel well!

Hope that you can get out whilst the little ones are at school, Wabo!

19k sounds a decent run, Hazel!

More cricket after my run; looks very grey at present. 

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

    Sunny but likely a bit cold / breezy for watching cricket here Ale.

    Not long to go till the weekend.

    What: likely another MLR
    Why: couple of higher mileage weeks left to do
    Last rest: 19.04.

    Lyrics: no

    Grey and a very chilly breeze for my run so will be well wrapped up for cricket.

    Hazel: apologies, I can't remember what and when your target race is. You seem to have been putting a good block together. 

    What: just over three quarters of an hour, largely off road d&d

    Why: probably this week's MLR. Was very gentle and for once I watched my heart rate to consciously keep it very low.

    (flattish) 50k on 14.05. Ale. 

    Do you have a chest or wrist based HRM?  My wrist HM gives out pretty erratic results so I tend to ignore it.   Other than the odd giggle about 200+ rates on gentle recoveries.

    Lyrics in the meantime: of course..  Haven't seen those for quite a few years!

    Thanks Hazel! I remember now!

    I usually use a wrist based monitor and having compared it with a chest monitor I find it surprisingly accurate: I wore a chest monitor from  the hospital for a week last year when I wasn't well and got exactly the same readings. In any case I just use it as a guide and as long as I am comparing things using the same watch every time then that is fair!

    And I imagine everyone knows these lyrics!

    Els - so sorry to hear about your friend, thoughts and sympathies with you 
    Pammie - good work getting the runs in!
    Hazel - decent MLR yesterday, enjoy todays too
    Chick - travel well and good luck for the weekend. Goals?
    Wabo - nice one with the 5k, good luck with the kids...
    ale - enjoy the cricket. Today it's grey and cold here - yesterday was a beauty

    Looks like I added an extra "i" to run - although ruin sometimes sums up how I feel....
    Just 4km yesterday before coaching the U11s

    What - 2hours at teatime
    why - out tomorrow (london) and Sunday (timekeeping at track meet) so today is the only opportunity to get an easy long run in.
    last rest - 02/04
    last hard - reckon today will be - I grow tired as the week goes on....
    lyric - of course

    Hi guys 🙋🏼‍♀️

    Arrived safe and well in Vienna. It's about 950k or 600ish miles. Piece of cake in a Tesla. It's the best car for chilled driving 😊
    Even managed a bit of jogging at two charging stops and an easy trundle around the block where our hotel is. Now tucked up and full of pizza. Carb loading s a bit meh.

    Els: Sympathies, that's very sad news about your friend and your looming op does sound scary 😔

    I'm with Hazel regarding wrist monitors, Ale. Mine showed 172 when I ran earlier. That's most likely my cadence 😉

    No to lyrics today ...

    Not sure about goals, Dustin. Deffo sub 4. Sub 3:45 would be great and another 3:3x mayyyy be possible if all stars align 🙏🏼
