Enjoy the new age group, Don!

What: something short

Why: time pressure. Work. Drive to Chester to say happy birthday to mum as she moves into the 85+ age group. Then drive to East Midlands. Then run.

Lyrics: no

What: 5.36k easy, 31 mins
Why: had planned to run harder but weather was foul. Sleet and very windy. Anyway, am happy with 9.89k for the day.

Morning again!

Take it nice and easy Postie

What: 25 mins easy, 4.53k. 
Why: second run later should be a bit more testing.

Weather was beautiful when I ran and managed to avoid the "60%" chance of sleet or snow that was promised. Looks like it is on the way though.

Lyrics: yes!

What: probably two half hour runs

Why: opportunity as not working until lunchtime. Run one will be weather dependent!

You did indeed post earlier, Gobi: roller hockey injury! Hope it doesn't prevent training!

Well done on the long run OH! Lots of kilometres there!

And I didn't notice it was Tuesday, either.

1621k to go.

1621 of course was the date of the first Thanksgiving in America as the Pilgrim Brothers gave thanks for an outstanding harvest.

I'd back off now, CB!

DT:  I find the main purpose of running every day is psychological. Habit-forming. Mental toughness. Sometimes as well I find "active rest" just loosens the legs. Some would say it is junk mileage but I think any miles are usually better than none. I like to keep the intensity very low a couple of days a week.

Didn't run for the planned hour today: weather was foul and decided 35 minutes was plenty!

Morning again!

Pretty foul out there, mainly because of the wind which made the sleet sting the face rather. Anyway another 6.41k in the bank, technically off road although some of the surfaces are now more like the road than the road.

Lyrics: familiar, so no.

What: to be decided
Why: working around the weather, and working

Wabo:  hope yesterday wasn't too bad...remember your team made the final, which is more than most teams did!
