Lyrics: LMH's location may help a little!

Good to see you Don

Dibs: shoes. Kinvara sounds a good bet; Asics gel DS trainer is a decent alternative, some would say. The DS Racer is probably too light for your needs.

Wabo: enjoy the Assembly League if you decide to go!

Looks a lovely day here but just went to sit outside on a bench in the playground...and came straight in due to this annoyingly cool breeze.

Morning! Just!

Lyrics: Take me far beyond imagination
You're my dream come true, my consolation

No doubt LMH will have heard these this week! And Leicester fans certainly have!

Yesterday’s lyrics were The Pointer Sisters with “I’m so excited”.

Dibs: good analysis! 

What: suspect it will be a short easy run again 

Why: legs!

MYOX: this may be of interest, although it won't be a very fast course, I suspect...

What: 4.31k

Why: it was enough after a couple of hours of gardening, plus yesterday's running.

Would be quite pleasant out if the wind dropped. It still has a cool edge to it.

Think Mark Twain said "A good walk spoiled", OH

Re nose I will be guided by the surgeon, of course, although I will of course listen to my body, also! . Thanks for advice! 

LMH: not warm enough here to sit outside, although it may be by Friday.

Wabo: toenail? Have had several destroyed and with a bit of tape/padding etc it has never stopped me running.

An afternoon of gardening at my daughter's then my run. Legs know that they ran hard last night!

Are you going to race it hard, or you just out to entertain the crowds, OL

Thursday May 19th for the op:  "septoplasty and submucous diathermy to inferior turbinates". Anyone know anything about recovery from this, not least in terms of running?!

Are you doing GMR, OL? Or is your brother? Unlikely to be there: have helped for the last 8 or 9 years but it will be a few days after my nose op so have said no this year.

Lyrics: Tonight's the night we're gonna make it happen
Tonight we'll put all other things aside

These went through my head on Monday night...and I still am in the state the title says!

What: something easy pm

Why: taking care of my legs

You are obviously a fox in disguise, OL: your "why" is far too cunning for my human brain!

Hope Don pops in: not been seen for a couple of weeks! Hope all is well mate!

Day 640 complete! Waiting for advice re running post nose op! Getting close!

What: 6.4k, including a few"faster" parts. Still a relative term! Just under 4 mins for one of the ks though, and into the wind, so hope yet!

Why: pretending to be a fox. 

Sounds an energetic holiday, LMH! Hope that's the end of the rain...and for us as well. Managed to get to around 13 degrees today although it was cooler and windy when I ran.

Don't know much about tri, Dibs, but there are lots of positives there, and some areas to work on: keep the analysis simple WWW, EBI (what went well/even better if...i.e. three good points and three points to improve on).
