Friday 25th August 2023 On the other side of the river stood his lovely Indian maid


Lyrics: On the other side of the river stood his lovely Indian maid
Little White Dove was her name, such a lovely sight to see

Lines two and three of another creature related song.

What: probably around half an hour

Why: easy day...unless the legs get carried away!
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.


  • Morning

    Your legs are supposed to carry you away Ale...  :)

    I saw a short clip of the lake swim Els - looked like a washing machine gone mad!  Hope the water wasn't too warm even.  Hope the knee is ok.  

    I did some extra cheering for Ben Dustin.  Seems it worked.

    Sad family memories Wabo.

    Great work on the mileage Pammie, 4 mths to go in 2023 yet!

    Longjump looked a bit "interesting" yesterday.   That guy who slipped was very lucky.  And it seems there are new rules regarding board fouls - picture determines rather than a mark on the plasticene.

    What: likely a walk this evening - might even get wet?
    Why: running rest day
    Last hard: the last 2 weeks
    Last rest: 25.08.23

    Lyrics: no
  • Lyrics no.
    Running probably no, Rousay half marathon tomorrow though currently there will be walking. Forecast isn't great either but I'm guessing Hazel would love it 12c, windy and rain!

  • Wabo, good to mark the day though of course sad. Thinking of you!

    Wabo - sending hugs for yesterday, 23 years but not forgotten
    Pammie - ouch to the dental work, good luck Monday!
    Hazel - well done with 10 pre work yesterday, strong stuff!
    I don't mind the heat , it's humidity/mugginess that gets me. 
    Ale - more rain? Had some in London yesterday, none at home. 
    Els - good luck tomorrow

    Thanks for all the virtual support for Ben yesterday. Loads gathered round phones after training - didn't make it easy for us. But still , a world final is fantastic!

    What - 6miles easy trails
    Why - lighter day, track tomorrow
    last rest - 16/08
    last hard  Tuesday
    lyric - think so, yes
