Monday 10th July 2023 No colourful feathers have I

Lyrics: No colourful feathers have I 
I can't even sing when I'm nesting in spring 
And the turnips don't grow very high 

Another creature...and arguably one of the worst records ever. Line two onwards.

Yesterday's were El Condor Pass, Simon and Garfunkel

Good to see you, Pammie; consistent consistency please!

31 hours sounds a tough day out, OH. And more.

What: around an hour with M78

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

    Have a nice run with M78 Ale.

    31 hours - ouch. 

    Please don't stress about your run Els, didn't look poor to me!  Well done on the helper stint on top of your own run.   

    Good to see Pammie indeed.  You will be back to where you were soon.

    What: pre work 7 mile recovery done in tropical conditions
    Why: more heat due today - currently thunderstorm
    Last hard: getting from my bed into my running shoes after another poor night's sleep.
    Last rest: 8.7.23

    Lyrics: no idea today.  Will be interesting to see what the worst record is!  Might have some candidates for that.
  • Lyrics no!
    Feel a bit ugh today, the tiredness of a longish run (but not long enough) without the buzz of having completed a race, and not great sleep for a couple of nights.  Ah well.
    Enjoy your runs folks, think it'll be a walk for me - legs feel OK but generally a bit fed up.

    Meant to say, decent run yesterday, Hazel!

    Hope that you get out for at least a walk, Els!

    What: 70 minutes with M76

    Why: we are gradually re-building the longer runs. Warm and sunny; now the wind has picked up and there is rain in the air.

    What recovery run
    Why: It is needed.
    Last hard: Yesterday no power in legs after hills.
    Lyrics No
    Last rest day 8/7
    ALF: Always a little further
    Miles makes smiles.

    31 hours  that's a lot  of running. A lot of anything 

    Ale nice run a little warm though. That's my plan too to extend one of my runs 

    What 3½ miles run walk
    Why getting back to it
    Last hard the heat
    Lyrics no. From the sound  of it I should  be grateful

    Will have a read back but looks like that was some epic endurance running at Els' event!
    Ale - enjoy the LSR
    Pammie - well done on your run, you too WP. Pleased with the time?
    Hazel - well done getting it in early!

    What - hoping to head out for 8 or 9 easy miles shortly
    Why - getting back into it
    last rest - Friday (questionably)
    last hard - last week. 
    3 fabulous evenings in Berlin - arrived Friday lunchtime, and stayed right in the middle of town (250m from Unter Den Linden). Plenty of walking and sightseeing, saw a lot, missed a lot. According to my garmin, we covered 13+ miles on Saturday, around 10 yesterday. First time I've been to Berlin since 1986 or 1987 - it's changed a bit since then....
    Massive crowds at the Tiergarten / Brandenberg gate on Saturday: the 2023 "rave the planet' festival....Oh to be young again....

    Dustin: Sounds like a good break away.

    No not pleased with time same as last year and that was a PW by 12 minutes.I expected better as training has been elevated this year.I ran faster In May at a 4 mile hilly race with more elevation than this one. Maybe just heat and a bad day.
    ALF: Always a little further

    Happy belated birthday, Poppy. Hope the race went well, despite the heat.

    Sounds like a blast, Dustin. Gosh, those 90s raves were fun.

    Good to see you building back to longer runs, Ale.

    Half marathon distance in the heat is great, Hazel! It was still 31 degrees here at 10pm last night and then we had thunderstorms. So this morning was a fly-ridden mugfest. Didn't sleep great either.

    Crazy event,  OH and Els. And I think you did very well,  Els. Don't beat yourself up. Kudos for volunteering.

    9 miles with a jump in the lake. That was nice and refreshing.

    No to lyrics. There are plenty of really bad songs out there 😁

    I'll have to read back too, been so busy with granddaughters dance shows and my mum poorly

    Last hard that
    Last rest 28/12
    Happy belated poppy
