Lyrics: When I wake up in the morning, love
And the sunlight hurts my eyes

Yesterday's were Blaydon Races, often sung at Newcastle football matches. 

What: a run later

Why: see what I feel like; big day marking exams on the computer. Typically it is a lovely day out there.
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Sorry Ale, couldn't figure out a good song for the lyrics today, or I would have started the thread.  Regular breaks in the garden at least?

    Hope the neck is better today chamolk.  Legs are good thanks - feet are improving (blisters and achy bits).

    Good club session last night Dustin?

    Warm drizzle sounds lovely chicksta. 

    What: cycle later
    Why: didn't go yesterday - just a walk
    Last hard: getting restless - will do a short run tomorrow
    Last rest: 18.05.
    Lyrics: really should know these.. Ongoing frustrated humming...

    Yes to lyrics. Lovely song :) 

    Sounds like your recovery is going well, Hazel. 

    Hope you get to enjoy the weather, Ale. 

    First double-digit run today: 10 miles, followed by 30mins of s&c in the gym. Windy but sunny and legs seem to get better. That treacly feeling from earlier this week is gone.

    Afternoon all

    Like that you did a Newcastle song yesterday ale!!
    Chick great running and training after
    Hazel you will know the lyrics, enjoy the rest day cycle, I need to read back about your race. I just not managing to get in here lately
    Alehouse massive hint on song, enjoy the run and hope the marking goes well
    What only a mile
    Why rest day
    Last hard this morning
    Last rest yesterday

    Ale - good luck with the marking, hope you get a run done
    Wabo - well done for Monday's run
    Hazel - enjoy the ride!
    Chick - decent mile run, nicely done

    what - 10x400s (60s)
    why - coached the session last night so didn't really get much of chance to turn the legs.
    Ended up being more a tempo/fartlek session, hence the pain today.
    last rest - 02/04
    last hard - today. Not the speediest set I've don (all 95-99s) but it's a starting point...
    lyric - yes it is indeed.

    An hour is good, Wabo!

    A lot of marking today, but managed gardening breaks, as per Hazel's suggestion, plus supermarket and a run.

    What: 3k warm up, 7 X 30 seconds hard uphill, a km or so easy afterwards.

    Why: have not done anything quick for over three weeks, parkrun apart.

    Marking doesn't sound fun ale. I too was stuck at my desk for a large part of the day!

    Monday did mummy child yoga (it's my yoga for runners teacher so it's a really tough yoga session). Not sure if I mentioned before but Lucas is the youngest by 10 years so he mostly laughs at me, crawls on/under me and plays with his toys whilst I do yoga!  That was followed by running club.

    Today was 7km run though did walk some of it as I was cream crackered. Followed by physio.

    Chick is this post marathon build up?

    Dustin that's a good session!

    I've got a race in 10 days and I am nowhere near ready for it. Not even sure I'll beat last year's slow time....

    Have a great day all
