You have obviously just had a birthday, do join in with our conversations. We are a very accommodating lot!
Yes the voting decision is very hard! I think I would vote to leave with my heart but to stay in with my head. i would certainly agree with you that a weight workout is hard compared to running.
Will fill you in if I come across any good credible facts in my referendum course, I am just a little concerned that facts are coming from Edinburgh will be biased because the Scots want to stay in the EU!! Norway, wonderful. I have always wanted to visit . Yes, I agree, it is most important that we, as ladies, vote. I probably will vote to stay, to quote a very corny cliche, better the devil you know.
You are being very sensible, I am sure that you will reap the benefits.
My food course, wasn't really about superfoods as such, although were mentioned as being good foods to eat but nothing scientific proves that they are super! Although, broccoli and blueberries were mentioned as being super foods. I admire your commitment to your walking. When you are running, do you walk each day too?
So a bigger tum returns home!!. Sounds as if the terrain wasn't very running/walking friendly!!!! You are back in the groove again now with a very good run this morning.
My food course was more about how foods in future will be used to combat disease.,it seems that we will be able to be genetically tested and it has been already found that certain foods can turn on or turn off our DNA/Genomes and by doing so diseases to which we are genetically prediposed to and in consultation with fa qualified nutritionist can be prevented from occurring. It is still a grey area, and we are ALL different. We were taken through what foods are generally good for one and which aren't. What was very interesting was that after every module and there were many, there was a discussion forum available.
Stewart came back last week and for his birthday we went with friends to see Carol King's musical, it was brilliant, what a talented lady. On the strength of that we are going to see her concert in Hyde Park where she will be appearing in person.
I went running this morning, and got rid of a lot of gunge, it was quite liberating!!! But it is building up again, and yes TS there are a lot of trees in full blossom. Not sure about me having a reaction to them. My eyes are blood shot and sore but not itchy.
I did run/ walk again because I didn't want to jog I wanted to run, so it was 4:1 again,
3 miles in 28.12 mins, av pace 9.24 mm, no idea of HR, rubbish read out. But I know I was well out of breath towards the end of each 4 mins run, especially the uphill ones.
I wasn't at all surprised to hear from you because I had only been thinking of you the previous day. Moving house is hard work and exhausting, I have a lot of experience.
I had only just stopped coughing from my last virus! I hope your's does an exit pdq.
Where is live there is a lot of trees they line the trail I run in plus as we back onto a rail line/station there are plenty of trees backing onto us. However, I don't think I suffer with hay fever, having said that, I always seem to have sinus problems in May. We had squirrels in the attic of our house when we lived in Northampton and they thought my purple ski boots were rather tasty.
Feeling a little better this morning I ventured out for a 3 mile run/walk. 4 mins run and 1 min walk. My HRM didn't work at all until the last mile. The run was done in 30 mins, av pace being 10 mmilling.
I have finished my online Food for Medicine course, which was interesting and informative. I have just signed up for another course from Edinburgh uni, which is about the UK referendum. I am feeling a huge responsibility about my vote. I am hoping that there will be some unbiased facts divulged on the course. It says that will be the case!
You certainly have some lovely countryside around you which of course we have seen photos of from time to time. You keep yourself well busy with various occupations since your retirement! Sometimes an injury introduces one to something that wouldn't have had time for when running was the first priority.
Hope you have a good run this morning with no after effects.
Oh what a bummer 11 miles is a long way to walk, how long does that take you? I would have thought over 3 hours! Not sure though how one strengthens ones femur, but presume your physio means your hamstrings and quads. Thank you for your kind remark about 3 miles being 3 miles! x
I didn't get to bed until 1.00am.ast night then read until 2.00 am, so was feeling very tired this morning, but managed another slow but sure 3 miles, 31 mins, av pace 10.19 mm, av HR 119
We went to see the Carol King Musical last evening with friends, it was great. A song a minute, with lots of toe tapping music from the 60's and 70's which you would all recognise. I didn't realise that she had written so much music for many American groups of the time. Like the Drifters, the Shirelles, Righteous Brothers etc. etc. etc. Those were the days!!!
