Difficult to think of appropriate lyrics in light of yesterday's news from Boston but this is what I came up with - I hope that the world stops raining
Hope your girls arrive safely Wabo.
I don't understand these people. For that I am grateful.
What: easy swimWhy: hope to loosen my backLast hard: so many things are hard for different reasonsLast rest: 14/4
Yesterday's lyrics were Am I Right by Kirsty MacColl
Indeed, LMH, it is hard. Our thoughts and prayers to the injured and the bereaved.
What: Hmm, this is going to be a challenge. The next two days are completely filled, without trying to find a training slot. Looks like I'll have to work fast so I can finish early.
The early weather forecasts for the weekend look good. Maybe a little breezy still, with an April shower, but good anyway.
Morning (apologies for not being on last few days)
Words fail me re what's happened in Boston.
What: Hills x 6 in wind and rain. (Mile warm up and down)
Why: My newish session.
Kids and MrsB back at work today
Younger son (in 6th Year) has been given an unconditional offer to do HNC then HND in Sports Coaching at local FE College
An early 'All The Best' to those on here doing London this Sunday.
MissB starts athletics at PE today.
Lyrics: Not sure.
completely shocked - can't get my head around this People on another forum are talking about wearing a black ribbon on Sunday to mark their respect. I think that's a great idea.
What not sure but something laterWhy day offLyrics no
Equally shocked by Boston
Family are now unsure about going to London with me. It's not so much about a repetition of events in Boston as this seems unlikely it's more about the potential chaos by idiot hoaxes. Central London with 4 children and potentialy jammed transport networks is not a relaxing prospect. Mrs PP is naturaly anxious at the best of times and this would be too much for her. I hear that some are going to run in either Boston colours or Boston shirts, I think I'll go down the black ribbon route.
yes, shocked is the word and now for us doing London all our families and friends will fret and we will feel worried about them spectating, its complete madness.
see postie thats the thing isnt it, even without worrying its the extra mayhem it will cause.
Black ribbon sounds right to me
lmh, they are in the air approaching Madrid, Jodie very happy that she got cleo her own seat but not very pleased that LAN did not have Cleo on the ticket for the flight from Madrid to London, which is crazy! Sure it will be fine.
What: 5 k easy done off road this morning
why: schedule still
last hard: that I guess
Last easy: yesterday
have a good day all
morning all, obviously thoughts with the Boston familiesWabo - bet you're excited by the impending visitors!!OH - nice long run there!VLMers - hope taper madenss is under control, best wishes to all running!!what - club nightwhy - tuesday, will be light version for me. The bug has been passed, left the house to the sound of 15yo throwing up...bet she loves me...last rest - well i guess i didnt run Sun & Monlast hard - eating yesterdaygood day y'all
Back again as promised
What 7.9 final blastWhy P&D say so
3m comfey, 2@ mp,1 easy, 1@ mp, rest easy.
Splits 6:44, 6:49, 6:36, 6:31, 6:31, 7:02, 6:29, 0.9 @ 7:27
All have to do now is keep thigs ticking over or rest.
A bit pissed off today due to events elsewhere. Its just f*ckin shit.
Any way 7 miles d&d earlier. an easy swim on way home and maybe gym work.
Ye can talk all night about whys and all the rest but its just fu*kin shit. Unfortunately these things are happening, and in a world impossible to secure they will happen.
And if and when they get the fuckers some do-gooders somewhere will be on complaining about their prison conditions - there is another option --- with my option they dont need accomodation!
Nothing to add re Boston: tragic.
What: something this evening, but what remains to be seenWhy: my legs and hips (!) tell me that I may have overdone things yesterday
Lyrics: appropriate, but no.
Lost for words for once
What: Rest dayWhy: TaperLast Hard: Every day since Saturday. Struggling on this taper larkLast Rest: YesterdayIf it's a cool day on Sunday will put a Boston shirt under my Macmillan vest, if not then a black arm band. Organisers might do something tho. When queen mum died they gave runners a ribbon to pin on similar to the breast cancer ones, but black obviously,
Have you thought about adding in some swimming Alehouse? Apologies if we've discussed this before.
Glad you're feeling better Dustin.
Hope they let little Cleo fly with her mum Wabo without too much stress.
1.8k swim for me today, getting slightly faster. Seems to have eased my back too so thinking that I might swim again tomorrow before the smt and leave a run until Thursday.
LMH: swimming is a no-go, LMH...neck/shoulder still not up to it and probably never will be now, except for for leisure. Can't see me ever doing the necessary volume for anything else. No worries, I'll gradually cope with the running, I'm sure.
No need to swim for fitness though Alehouse - you could use it on non running days to help with flexibility and to ease some of the aches and pains?
What: restWhy: on call and legs recovering from yesterdayLast hard: yesterdayLast rest: SundayLyrics: no
Still shocked by Boston yesterday. Thoughts go out to all those traumatised by the events. A cowardly nasty attack with true nature of bombs emerging (packed with ball bearings and metal shards)
Good luck to all of you running marathons this weekend, keep strong!
Didn't run yesterday - caught up in all the drama of Boston. We had a few people that I knew who were running, and I couldn't settle until I knew they were all o'kay.
Enjoy your running everyone - must get out and run today.
7.2 miles of fartlek tonight. My youngest now worried about Edinburgh next month. Trying to reassure her. Despicable cowards spread fear around the world but we cant let them beat us.
