Saturday 10th August 2019 - White man came across the sea

Morning..
Lyrics - White man came across the sea

Great photo chicksta. Embrace the heat and enjoy the hills!

Sorry the cricket was a washout Alehouse.

Windy here and due to be wet shortly but it's going to be too warm for a waterproof - this is not what I expect in August even in England!

What:              short and easy/maybe gym
Why:               easier day required/trying to get mark to go
Last hard:       the chairs at hospital
Last rest:        27/7
If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Morning!

    Lyrics: no. Think we have had them before and I still don't know them!

    Yesterday's lyrics were "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall," Bob Dylan. Prefer Bryan Ferry's version. 

    What: parkrun plus a few kms before/after

    Why: Saturday, getting a few gentle kms in, company

    Cricket was indeed off and caught the tram to watch the first half of football in the alehouse.

    May fit a visit to the fitness suite 
    Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Yep lyrics I've got now,I think it could be fitting when I do pop out
    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • I chose the lyrics with chicksta in mind:-)

    It is cold and windy - I'm not feeling very motivated at the minute!
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Oh blimey Wabo I hope you are okay?

    All parkrun's this end cancelled due to winds.

    What: 6.15 miles
    Why: found an open window when the winds dropped a little
    Last hard: Todays run fighting the winds and rain
    Lyrics: Yes

    Boy between tree clambering yesterday and fighting winds and rain it is tough at the moment...LOL
    Live each day as if it was your last  give it all you have to reap the rewards.

    Poor Wabo! Hope things are not too bad!

    What: progressive parkrun, 23:38 plus a few ks

    Why: ran to feel

    Hopefully fit fitness suite in. Warmed up in wet suit but not needed as it stayed dry. Still humid but windy, and damp under foot. 

    Take it easy, Emz!

  • I hope you haven't done yourself any damage Wabo?

    i think you just need to go with it emzap, listen to your body.

    We are having some very heavy showers go through Alehouse.

    Well done on finding a window Poppy - very blowy here, I was nearly at a standstill in places.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Wabo I hope you're ok. Look after yourself.

    Drove part way to town and walked the rest (learning to compromise!). Got soaked but nice to get out. Now trying not to get frustrated with the little I can do around the house!  Bought myself a loaf of trashy books to entertain myself.

    Be careful out there, it's treacherous.

    Hope the football was better than the cricket Ale.

    No point in a waterproof it is warm I find LMH, turns into a mini sauna. Good news regarding Mil.

    Where are you roughly Chicksta? Doesn't look German somehow don't know why.  Have a good trail race.

    Ouch Wabo, hopefully just bruises and small cuts.

    Enjoy the sleep emzap. Dust can wait a bit longer.

    Well done on finding a good window WP.

    Be careful out there everyone in the wind.

    What: 8 general aerobic with molehill sprints and strides before breaky.
    Why: get it done prior to Saturday tasks and PIL visit in Germany.
    Last hard: not burning the pancakes whilst writing this!
    Last rest: yesterday

    Lyrics: feel I should do

    Have a good weekend
  • Pancakes sound good Hazel! I dislike warm and wet - so difficult to dress for, I opted for the wet t-shirt look but fortunately it stayed dry.

    That's the way to do it emzap.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.

    Afternoon all 😁
    I still have the biggest grin on my face. What a day, what a fab event. Wow. Think I found my true calling in trail running.

    We're South of Dresden, near the Czech border - Elbsandsteingebirge to be precise. It's a beautiful national park. Took about a bazillion pics and chatted to loads of people. Some hardcore ultra folk helped me with the tricky parts and made me lose my fear of the downhills.

    It was less hot than expected but still warm and very humid. Everyone was drenched in sweat. We also had some rain in the last hour which was rather welcome.

    Salty peanuts and coke are my new favourite long run fuel :D

    30k, about 690m net elevation gain and it took me a little over 3 hours (forgot to stop my Garmin) so quite pleased really as I took it easy and ran well within myself.

    Hope you guys survive the storm 🤞

    A wet chick with a most welcome beer

    Sounds like a great day, Chick! Well done!

  • Well done chicksta. That sounds great and you're looking really good! Flat coke used to be my go to for IM and ultras. Lovely location judging by your photos.
    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • chickstachicksta ✭✭✭
    The start 😁
  • emzapemzap ✭✭✭
    Chick well done! Thought you may be there as I thought I recognised the photo. I did a 3 day race there a few years ago and the Saturday was a 30 km trail race so maybe it was the same one :)
  • Great photos Chick

    parkrun marshalling 
    putting a bit back in and chest not ready to run yet
    last hard was actually quite soft - single-handedly “disarming” a lion’s main jelly fish yesterday. Quite uncomfortable for rest of day (made me forget sore chest!) but was first sting in 7+y regular sea swimming.
    last rest: Wednesday
    lyrics no

    Away to Shetland tonight.
  • WaboWabo ✭✭✭
    Evening all

    Oh wow, that would scare me!!! Enjoy shetlands
    Chick great photos! Wow go you!!
    Feel  battered so I'm going to bed
    Night all
