Tuesday 16th January 2023 You say that you love me (say you love me)


Lyrics: You say that you love me (say you love me)
All of the time (all of the time)

Taking over the number one spot from yesterday's song 60 years ago today.

What: hopefully 30-40 minutes off road

Why (not): it has snowed so that may change plans 
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Morning - got caught up at work so didn't get time to start the thread. 

    It's been snowing pretty heavily here since 4am, had about an inch of snow on my car.

    Got out for a slow 5k last night - the snow that was there had frozen so the grip wasn't bad, but there were icy patches hidden here and there to be careful of

    Hope you're both feeling a bit better today Els and Ale

    Yesterday's lyrics were I Wanna Hold Your Hand by The Beatles

    Today's lyrics - yes

    Not sure what today's plan will be - I'll see what the roads are like when I wake up

    Lyrics no. Plenty snow here too.
    Still got terrible cold though less bad than yesterday so guess should avoid yoga class.
    Maybe gentle run.
    Worried about getting away now, boat should go but not sure about roads south.

    Ale - ohh a bit of snowy off road! Enjoy...
    chamolk - hope the roads allow some kind of run
    Emz - good work from Lucas!
    Pammie - great stuff yesterday
    Wabo - I don't get the dry face in the cold, but my calves/shins get really dry. Woke me up last night and had to daub on some E45
    Chick - well done staying upright!!

    What - club session - Threshold intervals (roughly 2 x 2 miles)
    Why - marathon group
    last rest - 21/09

    lyric - think so

    Hard work in the snow this morning! Fortunately a lot of people had gone through the woods before me, more than usual, surprisingly; the woods were sheltered compared with the river banks. 5k d&d.

    Just back again, my frequent 8 mile loop in snow, was able to run most of it but some walking stretches, slower than usual but glad to have got out. Sky still heavy with snow and car is refusing to start...we need it to get away tomorrow night!
    Enjoy the club session Dustin.

    Cross post, Els; hope all is sorted soon, travel-wise. 8 miles in the snow would have been beyond me, so well done!

    Wore trail shoes for the first time for years. I'm sure that they have shrunk!

    Lovely pic, Ale.

    Glad you're feeling better, Els. Fingers crossed the car stops playing up.

    Congrats Lucas on a 2 minute PB 🥳

    Have fun with the speed work, Dustin!

    That's a lot of snow, chamolk. 

    Got up early and managed 10k on freshly fallen snow. It was less slippery than last night and apart from the icy cold wind rather enjoyable. I love being the one that makes the first tracks in fresh snow. 

    Yes to lyrics.

    Oh a lot of snow today! We had none! Still shorts weather though 🤣 (it's become a running joke that I'm in shorts unless it gets too about -3 and even then they sometimes come out).

    5km this morning. Ran to the track, around it a bit, then back. Then walked into town at lunch and back to enjoy some of the sunny weather. My favourite type of winter's day.

    Those are good efforts Dustin. 

    Els and ale how are you feeling?

    Wabo that's a good mileage yesterday, sorry I missed it.
