Todays lyrics:If you like to gamble, I tell you I'm your man,
Yesterdays lyrics: Paperback Writer by The Beatles.
What:An Easy 4M done.
Why:My legs (calves) are a bit stiff this morning so eased through run.
Dry, cold, no wind. Cracking morning for running.
Sounds as though you enjoyed your holiday chickadeee.
Blisters - your swimming is really coming on if you can throw in a faster couple of lengths at the end of a mile just for the heck of it.
Tom - your new club seems to suit you.
birkmyre - any idea why?
What: 30 mins easy or nothingWhy: head vs heartLast hard: getting up this morning was hardLast rest: 29/8
Lyrics - no.
What: job interviewWhy: I don't have one at the moment!!Last hard: trying to work out if this interview will be in English or German. If it's the latter I'm screwed before I even start!
Nice 4.5 miler up the hill behind the house with my club (all of 3 people!) last night. Rain of biblical proportions, couldn't see where we were going at all! Had to walk up some of the hill, but ran a lot more than last time. Must be getting better right? One day I will conquer it.
Kitchen being fitted today, after 3 weeks of microwave cooking the time has finally arrived, and I am so unbelievably excited about it (though they were meant to be here by now...)
Anyway...have a good day all.
Lyrics: mmm, should have at least recognised yesterdays!BM: nice bright morning in the far NorthLMH: steady progress on road back to healthemzap: good luck
Why: Westray Bis Geos run tomorrow and see daughter on boat back to Uni tonight
Last rest: Wednesday
Last Hard: Saturday

Lyrics: again a zero, but yesterdays are obvious now.Emzap: good luck on the interview. Zey have vays of making you talk.Pammie: I didn't know you were that old! You look fit on it.Dustin: I guess that's a JFDI run? 30 mins at lunch? Jog back to the train?
Today for me, Wifey is anticipating that I do my (now) routine Friday swim. I also fancy a run in the autumnal sunshine. It smells like marathon season.
Lyrics - Yep, takes me back a bit! You win some, you lose some, its all the same to me
What - 1 mile warm up, 4 miles steady with some fast bursts
Why - because its on my schedule
yesterday cycled to work and back (12 miles) as not running
I actually managed a club run last night, just shy of 4 miles, no calf pain
lmh, hope you are getting better
oh good luck with your run and daughter heading back to uni!
emzap good luck and happy days re kitchen!
wow pammie, a century, nice one!
dustin enjoy the youngsters b'day celebration!
mm hi and welcome, and I still dont know the lyrics!
alehouse youa nd me re fight the flab
what: cycle home 22 miles, cant wait!
why: fight the flab
last hard: last night
last easy: weds
have a great weekend all, off to my first spurs game of the season tomorrow, they have been waiting for me to go!
Alehouse how did the clinic go?
Lyrics: Ahhhhh yes, now it makes sense, thanks 'Mum. Call me a ****head.
Tom, when I first started this running and entering HM competitions I was alongside people who had clearly been faster in previous seasons. One chap said that he never trained as such, just turned up on a Sunday and had a 13 miler. The approach made me wonder about the mindset, but he had clearly been there and done that and got enough T shirts. Obviously I didn't understand it, because I was on the rise, but I see it more clearly now.
Today's working from home has involved too much work, and not enough distance from home.
emzap - didn't you just go through all that with your house here before you left?
OH - busy weekend for you.
Wabo - glad to hear the calf held up.
Happy Birthday to (littlest?) Miss Dustin.
Blisters - I guess a large part depends on why you run. I'd certainly like longevity and accept that at some point that will mean declining times - though I'm not ready for that point yet.
Yes century today (cheers Blisters) 100 days of running so quite happy and feel good. Good run despite 6 hours kip
Blisters was worried at your first post as i thought you would get these lyrics
What 3 milesWhy: routineLast Hard: Monday
Welcome to Max Mum can't remember if said that before. Yeah you know todays song.
LMH: I think I slightly over did yesterdays session. hence calves being a bit stiff.
Wabo: Glad the calf is pain free
Dustin: Happy Birthday to the youngster.
Pammie: Glad you like it.
I'll explain choice tomorrow.I did like them as a youngster though
Been dreich since about 11am here.
Evening! Back in the north-west and after a beautiful day in the East Midlands its cold and very wet.
Emzap, and others: the clinic...mum was in for ten minutes... and I was in for nearly an hour! Having said last time that she was too low a priority I think I may now have persuaded them to change their minds and look into some sort of care package at home. Over the last 24 hours I have seen more and more signs of her not coping, both in a physical sense (house not clean, food rotting in fridge...and by the way I pay a cleaner who is about to be replaced) and her mental capacity. For example yesterday we spoke about which would be the best way to drive to the clinic; this morning, I asked mum if she would be ready in half an hour: "why?" and "what clinic"! And she hasn't been taking her tablets (Oh yes I have/Oh no you haven't/Oh yes I have etc), which means her mental capacity will affect her physical capabilities. Anyway I believe progress was made today!
Tom, or anyone else: all tips on the above are welcome!
And one bit of advice for anyone with a parent over about 58 should take out Lasting Power of Attorney now, just in case its needed. Just trying to work out what age I am now.
alehouse hope you do get some good help there. I have a very good friend whose dad has pd (with dementia)and the change in him lately is quite distressing to see at times.
well I did cycle home all by myself, 20.69 miles a really good ride and all the hills I used to think so tough were so do able
nice chilled night in now, ta ta folks
Yes, its not easy at times, Wabo, but I feel the biggest help I can be is to "stay calm and carry on"...trying to organise help, chaotic finances ("I know what I'm doing" etc)! And enjoy Spurs tomorrow!
Ale; Glad it seemed to go well
wabo: Sounds a good cycle with your fitness improving.
