Saturday 2nd June 2018 - Your old lover's lying in the gutter

Morning.

Lyrics - Your old lover's lying in the gutter

Late start this morning, couldn't think of any lyrics. It's going to be an unusual week before the marathon with being away but I will either get what I'm chasing next Sunday or not and I intend to enjoy the holiday between now and then.

What:            short and easy/travelling
Why:             time/taper/holiday
Last hard:     tapering
Last rest:      4/5
If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Morning!

    Lyrics: no

    What: parkrun, run progressively in 25:29, officially, although I got 25:22 on my watch. No matter!

    Why: the week's long run! 6.6k in total. 

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

    Meant to say, incredibly humid here earlier and was drenched at the finish of the run. Since then it has cooled down 3 or 4 degrees and a breeze has picked up. 

    Safe journeys, those who are travelling!

    Good miles there, WP!

    Impressive miles poppy. Well done.

    Good parkrun ale. Is it safe to say you're on a comeback?

    Good plan LMH. No need to stress yourself whilst on hols. Where are you off to?

    Fingers crossed OH.

    Exciting DD.

    What: 6 easy miles
    Why: did loads of work around house and garden earlier
    Last hard: sleeping
    Last rest: Thursday
    Lyrics: I know them but I can't name the song. Damn.
  • alehousealehouse ✭✭✭
    No, never safe to say on a comeback, Chick! Still running with niggles...but at least I am running! Long way from being fit enough to train properly though! Too much like hard work this morning!

    LMH/OH: Happy travels

    Ale: That's good going!

    DD: Good luck for tomorrow, you will storm it

    Welsh: My goodness, truly amazing, you now scare me, true grit, don't mess with kind of person, if I was on a sinking ship I would enlist you to organise and pilot the lifeboat I've been allocated in.


    Injured, out of action, Ibuprofen at 4:00AM, then at 11:00AM lying flat on back all morning and still am, pulled strained back and left lat. Have to get myself sorted somehow as am at a friends afternoon/evening birthday BBQ today.

    What: 'Nowt

    Why: Feeling like an old knackered pit pony ready for the glue factory (got that vision from the start of 1970s kids film Black Beauty)

    Lyrics: Well this is more like it. Yes.

    Afternoon

    Yesterday was lovely, thanks for the well-wishes.  Today is now the "wedding" part (we did it the German way, married in the registry office yesterday, big party today :) ).  

    Oh yes, running.  Very relaxed parkrun this morning, 29 something (obviously was not going all out!).  Then flower shopping, afternoon nap, and now nearly time to go get ready :smiley:

    Dustin hope you are recovered.  OH hope your journey back was ok.

    Have a lovely day all.
  • alehousealehouse ✭✭✭
    Glad all went well yesterday, Emz and hope all goes well this evening. 

    Hope the back has eased, Benjy! I know what a pain they can be!
