I don't know about anyone else, but the internet appears to be grindingly slow today.
We've been away for a weekend P&O cruise. As you might imagine, given my current head state, there was precious little training, and much weight gaining. However, this does not tell the whole truth. Cabins on deck 12, main action: deck 5. Never used the lift once we were on board. Also managed to hit the gym, and did a treddie slot of 10k, on what appeared to be entirely uphill (4%). Quite pleased with the way the body reacted.
Home early, and managed a swim today. That appears to have come on OK. The mile was 39:40, and 80L (2K) sub 50 min. It's been ages since I did a straight session.
Alehouse: Although I've not done the Bullock Smithy as an event, I grew up in Marple. I'll have been along every step of the route you took at some time or other. A more scenic option is to utilise the canal system which links most of those places, with disused railway line/footpath as another option. "Rather undulating" or you can use the proper name...
For me: another day, another trip up and down the M5/M6. Trainers are well travelled, but remain untouched. Must do better. I'm beginning to question my motivation.
Lyrics yes Training no. The love appears to have faded.
I made a list of jobs including book MGB for its MOT. They offered a slot this morning, so I took it (in the rain). Last year I got an "advisory" which was "Item 001: Most of underside of vehicle coated with thick black underseal." I told them I'd sorted that. The subtle difference today was "Advisory, Item 001: Underside of vehicle coveredin thick black underseal". That's much better.
Anyway, I've now driven up the M6 in readiness for tomorrow's work. Nit nit.
