Morning! I suspect it's cold and frosty here, too, but not planning on finding out!

Yesterday's lyrics were "I'm still standing", Elton John.

Yesterday's adventure was indeed to the Royal Oak, but was back home within the hour, which to be honest was long enough as just couldn't get foot comfortable. Need to repeat the exercise later in the week to see if there is any improvement!

Well done RFJ: just a shame it wasn't accurate ...or drier!

Morning ale. Ha Ha

Should have got yesterday's lyrics.

Hope your hamstring feels better this morning Dustin, hills and mud were guaranteed to upset mine when it was bad.

Alehouse - must have been nice to have a glimpse of normality!

I had a rotten night, tooth was so painful that it was painkillers before bed and again around 0130hrs however this morning the tooth is fine but I have a rotten sore throat - can't see the point in sitting in the dentist's with no evidence of infection (my face isn't swollen) so guess I shall just have to wait for it to flare up again. In the meantime even though my RHR is back to normal this morning I daren't do any exercise for fear of tipping the immune system over the edge again. Fed up or what?

What:              nothing
Why:               see above
Last hard:       sleeping
Last rest:        4/11

Lyrics - no.

05/11/2012 at 17:32

Well, I know it wasn't very sensible but when I left work I just needed to run so I took Grace out with no distance, time or pace in mind and ended up coming home 6 miles later. It was glorious out, bright and still and so far I feel much better for it - just hope I don't end up with another night of face ache as a consequence.

05/11/2012 at 17:43

Greetings all

Rest day here as off to fireworks in a bit with Jnr

Take care

Glad you got out, LMH: they're the best sort of runs... Unplanned, no self-inflicted pressure!

Wabo: hope you get the VLM place! Exciting! How many times have you done it before? Will you be altitude training this time?!

Well 3 cool and very dark miles this evening with occasional firework to destroy my night vision on a moonless starlit night.
Navigation - if I hit grass I had run off the path
All good fun

Good on you LMH - no daylight afer work here - dark at 4:30!

05/11/2012 at 20:52

alehouse, 9 times so this is my long awaited number 10, has a ring about it and should be my gfa! I wont be altitude training because all three of my lovelies in Peru are coming here in March, which means my training will be interesting!

lmh, thats nice to read!

At least there'll be no jet lag for you Wabo! And you'll get a full cross country season in this year!
