Hi everybody, just to let you know that I am still in the land of the living! Just very busy. Not a lot of running has gone on! I am reading your posts. Hope to catch up,properly very soon. But, just not today!
I do not like to wear anything on my head whilst running. I have quite a lot of hair, although only almost to the shoulder length but I sweat big time, really big time, so wearing a cap/hat makes me sweat even more. Even in the winter. When it is very cold I wear my ski band around my ears. Getting my hair wet with either sweat or rain is an added hassle after my shower. I have to dry it with a straightening brush otherwise my hair goes all frizzy, not that it is very curly, just very wavy. Now you have had a lecture about my hair!!!
Hope it was your HRM which was at fault not a fault with you! I hope you are over your bug now.
You are very good about your gym work. Do you still attend a Pilates Class? I have to do nerve flossing for the 3 nerves which are causing me problems in my hand. So I understand about the one you are doing for your lower back.
Love your crossing the road story. I asked you a page back, which you may not have read, if you are doing a nerve stretch for your back.
How are you feeling? I hope there has been some improvement in your symptoms today and that you are feeling more comfortable.
To Kill a Mockingbird has been on my list of books to read for a while. I can't remember if I read it a looooooong time ago or not. If I did, I certainly don't remember anything about it. But I think even if I did read it before it is a book which read back in the 60's would read very differently by me now. What do you think?
I ran/walked 5.5 miles in 58.30 mins, av pace 10.42 mm, av HR 119. Plus I got wet again. No rain when I was at choir this morning, no rain now as I sit typing this, BUT it rained whilst I was running! I wanted to get back in time to watch Bolt win the 200. I made it in time. What an excellent win.
I don't understand why a banned athlete can be let back again after 2 bans. I will be generous with one ban (not really), but twice is plain stupid and totally ridiculous.
Love the subtle colouring in your painting of your trees.
Oh dear, these falls seem to happen when one is least expecting them. You managed the rest of your session, I am impressed. Hopefully, your knee will heal quickly although I bet it will be sore tomorrow. As for your pain below your arm pit, this could be a muscle complaining that it was stretched more than it liked or it could be a rib which is objecting about the fall. Whatever, I hope you have a restful night and wake tomorrow feeling refreshed.
Yesterday you managed to avoid rain clouds by choosing a convoluting route with the doodle. You did well to miss the rain, because it didn't 'arf rain here for most of the day and night. Puddles and puddles of it. We no longer have a dry garden
You mentioned choir, we sang at Lingfield Races about 3 weeks ago. I may or may not have mentioned it here. We are meant to be singing on the Pavilion Field at Brighton on Sunday. It is just beside the theatre and Pavilion. So hoping for no rain, choir does take a break in the summer holiday although our Thursday morning session does continue.
I am enjoying the World Athletics no end. I look forward to the round up of each day when sitting down in the evening. Your mojo hath returned!
I ran walked this morning, same as yesterday, distance, pace although av HR was 109 this time. Only TS will comment on that! I got very wet indeed. I am now cold and will consider putting some heating on this evening!!!!
