Well, I'm upbeat!

What: just 4.11k, which I enjoyed despite the slushy pavements
Why: I know my legs and they are never great after driving, and have drove for over 8 hours in less than 24. Just being careful!

Gobi: what stuff did you do?

Last rest: 2nd Aug 2014.
Last hard: probably the year before. Or the year before that!

Wabo: drinks cabinet! Aren't you posh! Most of us will be round later! And hope you can get a ticket!

Stickless: hope the ill-health issue is managed in the least stressful way possible and resolve themselves in time...preferably quicker than the year!

SC! Sooo good to see you! sorry to hear that there have been wobbles...and stick around! Went to Lisbon myself last summer and really enjoyed it. Not  sure I'd be keen on a half marathon there: too much else to do!

And thanks everybody for the kind wishes: went as well as these things can I guess. training in the grey slush (hope it doesn't freeze over), and then to the Alehouse I imagine!

And CB...I've told you before to stick around!

Joe: you have just done amarathon. And then a marathon. And recently you ran a few other marathons. And wouldn't worry too much about speed. I'd want my body to recover a bit. Sorry...a lot.

What: 2.31k
Why: the M6 was shut so my drive was nearly four hours. Legs wouldn't work and my stomach was rumbling.

Lyrics: no

What: short run later
Why: work, then drive to Leicester. Tomorrow take mum to younger sister's funeral and then move her to Chester. Roll on tomorrow night.

What: just 5.08k with some slightly quicker parts
Why: cut-back week to be kinder to legs

Decent session Don! And RFJ that type of session is tough on tired legs.

Meant to say, Wabo, my team did yours a favour in the FA Cup: you can concentrate on the league. Unfortunately Leicester need to. Will be supporting Sheff Utd tomorrow.

And good to see you again Rocky!

Pammie? 40? Paddy?

LMH: re yesterday's lyrics, I heard the Bonnie Tyler version!

Gobi: no secrets today?

What: the plan is half an hour or so including some faster sections
Why: all depends if my ankles are loose enough

Then off to the Alehouse to drink some lemonade or something.

Lyrics: yes

What: another 3.19k this evening, although not the same one as this morning. Cold rain. A few hills, with Stickless in mind!

Why: symmetry. And also a little experiment: wore a pair of shoes that I know have never caused a problem. And no problematic ankles whereas this morning they were quite painful (in a new model of the same shoes!). The difference of course could be down to the stretching aster this morning's run, or the time of day!

Not Sunday afternoon, LMH. Think it was local radio one tea-time last week as the guy made some remark about the title which obviously stuck in my mind!

Get well Wabo!

Morning again!

Well done with the lyrics yesterday Chick! I think most people needed the clue!

What: 3.19k
Why: ankles!

Off to stretch, then meeting then work.
