Monday 18th July 2022 The tax man's taken all my dough

Lyrics: The tax man's taken all my dough
And left me in my stately home

What: 5k d&d with M77

Why: heat avoidance. High 30s expected this pm. Monday is long run day but that will have to happen later in the week.

Last rest: 19th July 2021
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Well done yesterday, chamolk

    Ale: wow, good streaking. Hope the heat isn't too bad. 30 here today but 38 forecast for Wednesday... luckily our house doesn't heat up much. We have good insulation and outside blinds. So I guess we'll just hide inside and watch the Tour de France 😊

    Is it hot in Switzerland right now, Hazel?

    Dustin: 50k trail ultra in August 😬

    12 miles with 8 * 1k fast-ish. Happy with 4:58, 4:58, 4:52, 4:50, 4:46, 4:45, 4:45 and 4:42

    That's a great session, Chick! What did you do between each km? 

    Currently 35 degrees here which is a bit of a shock for the north west of England! Supposed to be 37 later and 38 tomorrow. 

    About to watch the women's marathon from the world championships in Eugene. Especially hope Jess Piasecki does well: she used to play representative hockey with my daughter. And of course will be supporting the other girls. A 6:15 start to avoid the heat.

    Afternoon, hope everyone is staying reasonably cool and safe.

    Just back in from 4 miles. Was easy pace, but found it tough - 28 degrees here currently, and my legs are tired from yesterday. Slept for over 12 hours last night, but been in work again tonight. 5 nights this week, then off for 10 days and travelling over to see the Commonwealth Games

    Wow, that's some streak Ale, well done

    Nice session chick, I see each 1k was getting a bit faster

    Hope the hike was pleasant Hazel

    I'm away to find more water

    Forgot to say - yesterday's lyrics were Sunday Girl by Blondie

    Enjoy the marathon. I'm watching too 😊
