Lyrics - If you're feeling low and lost today
Nice day there Blisters.
Sounds as though you enjoyed it RFJ - hope your head isn't too bad this morning.
Still streaking then Pammie?
What: MLR/dentistWhy: unexpected day off/lost a filling on FridayLast hard: still the groundLast rest: 24/9
Yesterday's lyrics were "Mack the Knife", Frank Sinatra
Today's lyrics: familiar but...
Still raining! Has been since some time on Sunday evening! Due to stop later today.
I fear disaster is about to strike. I have that cold is coming feeling in my chest feeling very very unhappy his morning! Going to nip out once the shops are open to get some vitamins to hopefully perk myself up a bit!
After yesterdays complete rest I think i'll do 5k easy at lunch just to keep the legs moving.
What: 5k easy.Why: TaperLast hard: 16/09Last rest: yesterday
Having a sports massage on saturday which was given to me as a present. Hope this will loosen me up further ready for race day...
lyrics today no

lmh good luck at the dentist
what: two sets of tai chi
why: couldnt bike and I ran last night
last hard: last night 5k (not a race)
last easy: monday

LMH - Best of luck with dentist - yes still streaking Day 126 today
OPR Take care
What: 3.11 miles in the gorgeWhy: felt a bit of off road was needed in the rainLast Hard: ages nowLyrics Alas no
Did 7km on the treadmill in the end as the weather curtailed any chance of doing a run outside.
Meant to only do 5km but was feeling so good that I couldn't drag myself off! Plan is to rest up this evening and tomorrow day time. Thinking of doing a swim session tomorrow evening depending on if this cold has progressed at all
Hope it comes to nothing OPR. If you don't have a regular sports massage I'd be wary of having one the day before the race. If it has to be then let the masseur know to take it very easy on you.
Dentist was better than the run! He just stuck a temporary filling on, no injections, no drilling, no worries. Just hope it holds until I get the referral to the specialist dentist through. Ankle was fine on my run but left knee was grumbly and I noticed as I started to tire (which was far too early) that I was running on the outside of my right foot - most noticeable on any sort of downward slope. When I concentrated on putting it down correctly I developed an ache in my lower back and hip so I think I must have twisted as I fell on Sunday and put myself out slightly. Hopefully it will sort itself out. I had to cancel my sports massage on Monday as there was no way she'd have been able to work on my right leg but am booked in this coming Monday.
OPR: I would second LMH re massage...indeed I would save it for after the race. The first time I saw my present QofP (Queen of Pain, appropriately named) I could barely walk the next day.
Good reminders for me to book a pre-emptive strike with the Fizzy O.Lots of damaged and slowly recovering folk around these parts at the moment, so best wishes to all of you/us.
A dry day where I was today, and just got home in time for it to start raining. Normally I hate going out in the rain, but I could see from the clouds that this forecast was going one direction only. So, a pleasant 6.5 miles in mild rain ensued. The last half mile was at 7:20m/m carrying a large marrow.
Guess what's for tea?
I was just enjoying a damp run and saw some painted rocks on the footpath. Wondering why they were there, it was only as I passed that I realised that they were overgrown courgettes, and clearly placed there for anyone to take home.
It must have looked slightly odd though. The only person I did see was so engrossed in her mobile phone conversation that I could have been running naked and carrying a pig and she wouldn't have noticed.
