Lyric (lines 3 & 4) 
All right stop
Collaborate and listen

What - 10 miles MLR
Why - seeing if the legs function
Last rest - 21/09
Last hard - that wasn't that easy.
I was going to run before work (5.30am, dark, very cold. Glad I waited until midday. Crisp, but beautifully sunny.

    I had lyrics ready to go...but no internet at work. Back now so first chance to post. 

    Lyrics: no

    What: 22 slow minutes off road

    Why: slow because of the icy conditions. Never seen it so icy on my usual trails. Frequent stops to walk (stopping the watch of course!). 

    Where are you Els and OH?!

    Yesterday's lyrics were Short shorts, notably by Freddie and The Dreamers although it was a cover from the fifties. 

    -7 (feels like -9) on the way to work; they say it will be 14 degrees and rain at the weekend! Quite a swing!
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    quiet today!

    Maybe everyone is struggling on ice. 

    Nice miles, Dustin!

    I'm glad that the ice is gone where I live but in town yesterday it was a different picture. Most pavements unwalkable and also unrunnable. So I was grateful for the treadmill.

    Beautiful sunny day today, but a rather cold wind. Managed 10k at lunchtime. 

    We have a similar change in weather coming, ale. Wet and windy again. I'm not sure what's worse. I actually enjoyed running in the dry for a few days, even if it meant struggling with ice and cold.

    Lyrics no!
    Sounds like we got away in time, most roads shut today in Orkney and folk advised not to go out, no snow clearing getting etc.
    Boat felt fine last night, snow as far as Perth and struggled to keep windscreen clear having to stop repeatedly but south of there just some traffic congestion. Minus 8 in Peebles but no wind. Mother and toddler group, then soft play in afternoon then took Sean for a walk as he hadn't slept. Not much physical activity but pretty tiring!
    Hope all are fine in the current weather.
