Morning...another sleepless night!

Today's lyrics:
People try to put us d-down
Just because we get around
You could say that Tom, NZC and myself were talking about this yesterday.

Yesterday's lyrics: Universal Soldier by Donovan

What: try to get my ankle comfortable
Why: its been quite painful since yesterday afternoon for no obvious reason.

Also got to do a Christmas list: have been nagged by sister-in-law for the past month. It will consist of running books washed down by red wine.

Back later.

Morning again!

LMH: first physio appointment is Friday, although we are in email contact.

Dustin: have had to restart painkillers overnight. Just finished a course of anti-biotics...short course following the prostate tests! Re yesterday's singer, worth having a listen: some people consider it one of the best anti-war songs. And take care of the hammy.

OH: recover well!

Sweep: hope you enjoy the club again.
13/11/2012 at 08:09
Will do ah, been looking forward to the sessions, definitely the right move joining this club
13/11/2012 at 09:03
Good morning all

OH - your yesterday post came as a shock. Gld you had a comfortable night and hope you'll be on top of it soon.

Lyrics - yes again, that's four 60s songs in a row. As you say Alehouse, Universal Soldier is a really good song. My favourite antiwar song of that era is "Eve of Destruction" by Barry McGuire and as a close second "Come Away Melinda" by Tim Rose......not forgetting "Rumours of War" by Billy Bragg and "Another Man's Cause by The Levellers (off to see them at Cambridge tomorrow)...etc

Dustin, Sweep and myself....Tuesday night is club night

Have a good day all
13/11/2012 at 09:20

Tuesday night is club night here, too!

13/11/2012 at 09:33

Hope you're ok OH?

Enjoy all you club runs this evening!

What: gym after work - treadmill and weights probably

Why: cos I don't like running on my own in the dark plus I need to make use of membership

Last hard: Monday - body not hurting as much from body pump last night as I thought it would which is good

Last rest: Saturday

Also - this is totally random but anyone know how I get rid of the double line spacing on my comments, it's really bugging me!

13/11/2012 at 09:39

HH:  to eliminate the double line spacing press shift and return at the same time. We all suffered from that when we started posting I think!

13/11/2012 at 09:50

Ahhh thanks alehouse, that's been annoying me too!
What: Gym later.
Why: Failed this morning.
Last hard: Wednesday.
Last rest: Yesterday.
Lyrics you bet.
OH hope you're alright.

13/11/2012 at 09:53

Lyrics: Watcha talking about...of course...we'll need to give the youngsters a chance
What: Core session on a plate thingy at the gym
Why: Never done one before and instructor at gym suggested it would be good for core and flexibility
Last hard: Yesterday, first run since 14/10 and still feeling like a geriatric today
Last rest: Thursday
What's a club night?
Do you guys prefer the Glasgow boys warble to Buffy's original?
LMH regular pacer at 8mm/1.45 run sub 1.35...that won't happen again until spring tho'
Enjoy the runs all and get well soon all the sick and injured.

Hey Folks

Been absent for a few days, busy and sick kids. Did a Aquathon on Saturday which unusually has teh run first so a 10.5K run in 43-40 and then a 1.8K swim in 38 mins, 2nd M50 but would have won the M40 AG!! Then had a hard club run last night 10 miles in 72 mins come the end. Friday is the annual Coast to Coast Charity ride, Persian Gulf to Indian Ocean 140 miles, 7,000 feet of climbing, haven't ridden further than 60 miles since Outlaw in July, could be interesting.

On the WAVA front I still achieve the same ratings over 5K to 10 Miles ( I never ran any further back then) as I did in my early 30's , but I have always been around 75% not in the exalted territory of AH, Tom and NZC. 

OH: Hope you find the problem

What: Cycled well before dawn as sick child singing to me at 0400 drove me out the door for a quick 30 miles, will trot 10K or so after work.
Why: As always habit
last Hard: last night
last Rest: 11/11

Lyrics: yes 

13/11/2012 at 10:25

Thanks alehouse
It's worked!!

13/11/2012 at 12:17
Straycelt, I have to confess that I didn't realise that the Donovan version was a cover. The only song I know by Buffy St Marie is Soldier Blue, but it's nearly 40 years since I last heard it. On the subject of cover versions, one of my favourites is the Vanilla Fudge's psychedelic version of "You Keep Me Hanging On" (original by the Supremes).
13/11/2012 at 12:20
Thanks for all good wishes.
Hopefully home today. No definite diagnosis but nothing serious found (endoscopy and ultrasound)
13/11/2012 at 12:20

That sounds interesting Tom...might check it out on youtube.
Just had posting from mate who is on holiday on Boston....hankering to go back, might have to work on a GFA in the next 6-8months

13/11/2012 at 12:26

Hopefully good news OH...best have a couple of easy days then!
