That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane and Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
The lyrics are inspired by a cartoon I saw during the Olympic period, "and in other news..."
Nice to see some new and old faces.I don't know what's on my programme today, I'll take a weather check. I mangled my running legs Monday, swum a mile yesterday. So no doubt it will rain...
I was verrrry slowww at typingg because my keyyyyys are allll sticking! Funily enough I know the lyrics!
Yesterdays lyrics: 'Rio' by Duran, Duran.
What: 4.5M Steady
Why: A recovery run
Nice sun rise, Dry and warm so far.
Catch up over brekkie.
snap; Yeah first one on chooses lyrics Please be aware, there have been some 'crackers' posted. Okay often by me I admit
Great to see you TR. Feeling better now?
We'd appreciate a new lyrics setter Snap, especially when birkmyre is on holiday and we end up with a week of mine!
OH - lovely to see you here too. I cannot tell you how much I'm looking forward to trying sea kayaking - and exploring your beautiful aprt of the world. Elspeth tells me that Kirkwall Half is flat but I think this may be relative?
Blisters - it's great when you get those breakthroughs. I have to admit that I was so overjoyed to have the indoor pool back yesterday that I did my longest swim for months. I'm planning on doing some OW whilst in Orkney but mine will be in a wetsuit unlike OH!
Dry and warm here too birkmyre but we're forecast rain this afternoon just when Grace's friend is due to visit!
What: easy runWhy: legs still feeling Monday a little/half marathon on SundayLast hard: 20/7Last rest: 11/8
Lyrics - no.
Morning LMH: Yup the more the merrier who start this thread.
Think heavy rain forecast later here today, warm rain though...
Back from the annual trip to those Valencian hill above Alicante, damn hot in the sand pit.
Old and new faces on here, welcome to all.
Have been back 12 days and am trying to lose the 6kg that appeared post Outlaw, half of it has melted away so getting there. Back into training mode as the new season approaches, so
What: 2 K swim set at lunch, Intervals on the track tonightWhy: The race season is approachingLast hard: Outlaw 1st JulyLast Rest: 12 days
What: legs only swim (well, obviously all of me will be in the pool, but I'll only be using my legs)Why: ankle strengtheniinginging - and it hurts so I quite like it.Last hard: 13/12Last rest: 14/12
Lyrics - no - and I'm resisting the urge to google them.
Talking of swimming - anyone here ever done a marathon swim?
Hold on, I think I've got it... anything to do with Ronald The Raygun?
snap I need to do some of that legs only my style is awful! Like that you like that it hurts!
lmh sea kayaking, wow! Did white water at llangollen, loved it till I subsided! ha ha
alehouse nobody likes sticky keyboards!
What: 5k race hopefully
why: achilles totally fine now so I think it was overload on MOnday, when will I learn!
last hard: monday
last easy: yesterday
have a good day all
Glad the Achilles feels good today, Wabo: make sure you do lots of stretching to prevent a recurrence. Ice pack is on mine as I write: 26th icing in 45 hours!
morning all, and hello & welcome to the newbies! what - 4 or 5 steadywhy - midweek lethargylast hard - fitting in 2 miles yesterdaylast rest - sometime last weeklyric - yes indeedyhave a tip top day
Good luck with the race Wabo - I've found the swimming has helped some odd little niggles and nagging little pains that have just gone away with remarkably little effort. I've also found it really useful for CV fitness and teh improvements come quickly. Or that's what I think.
Love this little daily thread, I'm a constant ghost viewer so thought I'd better pop my head in!!
Trying to work out the whole lyrics and shenanigans that go on in here, when i first started reading, it seemed like a thread for rambling mental folk
Does anyone experienced wanna talk me through the lyrics thing etc?!?!? Is it the song you have in your head whilst running or actually listening to?? Intriguing for sure!!
Cheers - Chris
Welcome, CG4: the format is...whatwhylast hardlast restPossible comments about the weather/other people's training/races etc. And the lyrics...first one up in the morning sets, preferably the first lines and preferably either running related or topical. They are then revealed last thing at night, or more likely, the next day.
Stick around and you will get the hang of it.
And yes, it is indeed a thread for rambling mental folk (or at least one of us is).
Make that two Alehouse!
Hello CG4 - glad you felt safe enough to delurk
snap - longest I've swum is 5k.
DD - your holiday flew by didn't it. Outlaw again next year or somewhere different?
I'll stick around then!! That makes sense, I'm with it.
Look forward to joining in the ramblings then, nice one.
cheers alehouse, that is the problem with me, when theystart to feel ok again I forget the stretching!
