Todays lyrics:I did my best to notice, When the call came down the line.
What: Rest day today.
Why: It usually is.
Great Indoor athletics yesterday. Miss B met the Pole Vaulters Holly Bleasdale and Mary Saxer and got her picture taken with them and their autographs.
Our seats were right at the pole vault. Great to see the legendary Bernard Lagat in the 3000m.
Pouring down when out with Geordie.
Catch up over coffee
Morning birks. I was just looking for lyrics. Glad you and Miss B had a nice time at the athletics. It's not too bad here at the minute but we're forecast heavy rain and rising winds - no doubt that will arrive at the furthest point from home on my long run!
Yesterday's lyrics were If Time Is All I Have by James Blunt.
Sounds like rough journeys home for Dustin and RFJ - not to mention a bit of a mud bath beforehand.
What: LSRWhy: VLMLast hard: 19/1Last rest: 28/12
Lyrics - yes.
No never celebrated Burns Day. Yeah the heavy rain will probably arrive at the furthest point from home of your run.
Oh dear - it seems to have started already, though it isn't heavy yet. Now I have to decide what to do
LMH: All the best anyway !
What 1/2 an LSR
Why recovering from annual Burns cold
Lyrics yes ( for a change)
Have had a bit of a cold last few days so haven't been out. Similar colds have appeared at the same time the last couple of years with last years being the worst, was coming down with it whilst eating pizza with Gobi and was petrified that I had passed it on.
Raining raining... should I go on my LSR.. will probably be a miserable experience.. but should get a long one in.
What: give today a miss I think (ie rest day)
Why: XC postponed until next week due to wind
last hard: everything at present
heading out soon for a run.Was going to do a steady longish run, but legs mashed from yesterday so may well be just hour easy recovery. will report back later!
It's not exactly warm here chickadee and very wet and quite windy - though not by Orkney standards! It may take some time to warm through but that's the first 20 of my VLM campaign done.
Dragged myself out, it is SO windy and cold
Chickadeee Minus 12 would finish me off!
9 miles done. My head gave away before anything else did. Cold, drenched and over it. Had a few stops to either breathe (into the wind- breathing impossible) or just linger. Defo not the best run in the world.... but legs felt not too bad.
Didn't time (that's how over it I was, before i even began!)
It's foul - even the 10 minute back from church was bad enough. Soaked to the skin
May be 5°C but the wind chill is immense. Not due to improve much tomorrow
this is feeling like the windiest winter since we arrived in Orkney
Afternoon!What: confession time. Set off, but when Noah came by on his ark decided enough was enough. 2.18k.Lyrics: I believe I do.
Well done on the 20, LMH. You are in a good position to start your campaign!Hope Chick got a decent run in, but not sure that I could have coped with your outing, or should that be in-ing, Emz. Well done on getting out there and doing it, Dibs. And indeed anyone else who ventured out.
Well done emzap! I can't imagine maintaining the will to live on a treadmill.. let alone on a treadmill for 17km!
Constant rain, but I actually quite enjoy that as there is not a soul about!63 minutes, 7.75 miles steady. Legs felt a bit heavy to start, but turned out to be a decent outing. Sorry for those suffering with the worst of the elements, but top marks for getting things done!
Blooming Nora Gobi though a 15 mile run I did once on the mill was crazy never again.
What: 3.28 miles slow but non stopWhy 5km on FridayLast Hard: ThatLyrics No
It was raining
