    Morning!

    I know the lyrics, Hazel (and even the singer!)

    Yesterday's were What's New Pussycat, Tom Jones

    What: around an hour, gently

    Why: M78's plan/test out the leg

    Suspect that we will get rather wet!
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    I thought the lyrics could be familar Ale.  How did the leg test go?

    Drookit is a nice word Els.  The weather certainly didn't look nice for your marshalling stint yesterday.

    Trails, pals and not too many miles sounds like a nice run yesterday Dustin.

    What: likely a recovery run this evening
    Why: seems a good idea
    Last rest: 1.7.2023

    Just back, Hazel! 

    What: 67 minutes with M78, with most off road 

    Why: Monday, plus the opportunity to test my leg. Was feeling the hamstring towards the end but all generally good. Don't think the hamstring is the issue: lack of glute strength and a dodgy adductor. 

    Light drizzle rather than the heavy rain that was forecast.

    After yesterday a recovery run does seem wise, Hazel!

    I read that you are considering becoming Norwegian, OH and Els!

    Ale, that article is so embarrassing , I think our council leader has taken leave of his senses or just wants some attention in the press. Completely ridiculous!

    Another wet day here.
    Swim done.

    A couple of photos on way home.

    Pain a bit better this week (even considering Stromness 10k later this month ... )

    Lyrics not a clue

    (OIC leader has lost the plot!)

    Afternoon!

    I thought that there might be more than one side to the Orkney/Norway story, OH/Els! And don't envy the swimming: I imagine that it is still cold. 

    And Hazel will probably agree that everyone does know today's song. Probably the first one I think of when talking animal songs!

    Just drying out after a soaking walking the 600 metres to the surgery for my asthma review.

    Hi guys 👋🏻

    Sorry for being AWOL. Rough week. We took dad to hospital last week. He's been released in the meantime so all good. But at 88 anything can happen anytime... we managed to get an outpatient place at a geriatric unit for him starting this week on Thursday. At least it'll make things easier for mum.

    So last week was hit & miss running-wise.

    Not an easy time for you Chick. No surprise that running has taken a back seat, although I'm sure it helps. Hope all goes well.

    Been thinking about you Chick. Have you got far to travel to see him?
