Monday 1st April 2019 - Dyin' flame, you're free again


Lyrics - Dyin' flame, you're free again

Wow - paragliding Hazel? You are an all round action woman! Looks absolutely beautiful. I've been trying to plan a break all year - my husband is the issue:-(

Hope Mrs RFJ is ok this morning.

What:            rest
Why:             tired
Last hard:     dragging myself out of bed
Last rest:      27/1

Yesterday's lyrics - Days Like This by Van Morrison.
If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Morning all 
    What: 5 miles easy d&,d gym PM, run ride ?

    Lyrics: no

    What: short run d&d

    Why: get it out the way before travelling back to UK.
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.
  • Morning, hope everyone remembered to put the clocks forward.   I had to get up early yesterday so it wasn't too much of a shock this morning.

    I've done paragliding for the last 17.5 years, quite a bit longer than I have run for. (started in 2007).  I don't fly as much as I should do these days though, partly because of the running.

    Have a good rest day LMH. 

    Are you doing the full or the half Great Welsh Dustin?  Sorry if you have said it already.

    What:  don't know yet - some miles. 
    Why: need to plan this week's training around Friday's hill race.  Not an A race by any means but no point in going into it with totally tired legs.
    Last rest: Yesterday

    Lyrics: no

    Amazing pic and very brave, Hazel. I occasionally see those ramps up some mountains where they launch themselves. Scares the shit out of me.

    Haha Gobi, I hear ya :)

    That's really good mileage, wabo. How are the feet in those Hokas? Hope they still work. Scary park ... Perhaps wouldn't go there unless it was for parkrun.

    A rest day???  Yeah right, LMH :)
    I guess it's difficult to go on a break with that FiL situation...

    What: 7 miles with a bit of speed
    Why: 6 days to go
    Last hard: getting warm. It was -2 this morning
    Last rest: 3/3
    Lyrics: no

    Wabo - I now have to remember I have a new rest date. Fortunately the day after MiniG turned 18 so I SHOULD remember it... SHOULD :-)
  • GobiGobi ✭✭✭
    Ps. If anyone does the elbe tunnel just learn how to say left or right and thank you.

    Manners dont cost anything no matter what speed you run :-)
  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭
    chick feet not too bad, not testing them on  anything too long yet though

    9 non running days so on average I run 7 miles on the days I run. Longest run was a massive 11!!
  • You know me too well chicksta - no fooling you  :)  It was chilly here this morning too but bright and still and lovely to be running in.

    Nice miles Wabo.

    Glad you are feeling better Poppy.

    A hill race hazel?

    I am so not looking forward to tapering Dustin though I do have a pile of unread magazines to catch up with. Bound to get good weather when I can't run much though.

    Hope you had a good journey home Alehouse.

    Did you see Mini G for birthday celebrations Gobi?
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • GobiGobi ✭✭✭
    I did indeed  dinner was lovely LMH
  • That's good Gobi.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • What: short walk from Arosa, having overnighted in Zürich.
    Why: travelling and back still sore
    Last hard: most things just now although better day today
    Lyrics no chance

    We were seeing similar views of the Eiger but from below (Kleine Scheidegg) on Sunday.
