Hi Chunky...up late the last two days due to alehouse commitments!

And you do know these lyrics! How is the weight loss going?

Morning! Just!

Blisters: for "cheese" read "classic". Yesterday's lyrics were the 1968 Christmas number 1, "Lily the Pink", by the Scaffold, with backing vocals from Reg Dwight, Graham Nash and Tim Rice, with Jack Bruce playing bass. But you all knew that anyway.

Today's classic: 'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try

How was the Stones v The Beatles, Wabo?

Yesterday evening was  of those nights at this time of year when a friend phones and says "I'm in the area, do you fancy a pint..."  500 metres to the pub and the last time I got this wet was in Glasgow at the Commonwealth Games: was going to have rain related lyrics, or something festive.

What: gentle easy run, 5 or 6k
Why: legs need something shorter

Hope I don't see you until late January then, OH!

Who will you support, Beatles or Stones, Wabo?

Christmas tree bought...but drying out before I bring it into the house!

Managed to find a training window between showers. Unseasonably warm (13.5) and wore shorts and neither hat nor gloves!

What: 9.19k off road. A bit of a struggle!
Why: tired legs...general rather than anything specific. Day 148 of my streak and 98k in the last 8 days: no wonder they are tired!
Will just have a short run tomorrow. Longer over the weekend, all being well.

Talking of streaks...Pammie?

OH: any dad progress, apart from progressing to 88! Will you be down at any time before Hogmanay?

Morning...just! Apologies for being so early...and for the lyrics.

Lyrics: We'll drink a drink a drink.....
The saviour of our human race

Yesterday's lyrics were, as everyone knew, "Let it snow", by hundreds of different artists!

What: either around 8/9k or two shorter runs of similar volume
Why: need to run 138k in the next 14 days.



2014 in 2014???

Having needed 287k at the beginning of December to make the 2014k in 2014 I was promptly ill, so another set-back. However things are now heading in the right direction, having reached 1876, or 138 to go...with 14 days to achieve it. Last 7 days have averaged about 12k so the target is do-able, but will be right down to the line.

1876 was, of course, the year that the first registered trade mark symbol was established in the UK, and, appropriately given my forum name, was the red Bass triangle.

Cheers! Think I'm available that day: glad it's not the week after. Better think about a plan!

Love the moon pic, Don! Don't work too hard in the holidays! I did...and shouldn't have done! The river is up and down like a yo-yo at the moment! In most parts there are two levels to the banks...but not on the part I was on this morning.

Christmas cards written, belatedly, but ahead with the present wrapping. Will soon have wrapped more than I've bought!
