lol Birkmyre, I am lucky that my kindle recognises it straight away so no spelling required.  Feeling good this morning, looking out onto the Clyde from Innellan.  Heading across on the ferry shortly.  No running today, probably, although might get out later.

Lyrics, nope.

Mava and RFJ, very good races today, we'll done to both.

I've been at a family gathering in Tighnabruaich today but managed 6 miles this morning.  Slightly worse for wear this evening and very sunburnt.  Great day.

Lyrics - very much a yes, great band and song - takes me back, birkmyre.

7 miles today completing the first mission of Zombies Run 3!   I can't recommend this app enough, it had me laughing from the first exchanges then sprinting away from zombie hordes a few minutes later (they caught me once today which wasn't good).  

Here are today's stats with the zombie storyline and playlist alongside - running was definitely more fun today!

Blisters, wow, that sounds great.

All, I have no idea what all this rolling stuff is about but I'd love to find out.

9 miles in 68 minutes this morning. After the nice sunrise, it has greyed over and was actually a little cold!  

Lyrics, I think so, 75% certain.

Hello all!  A huge well done LMH on your new pb and your marathon performance - glad to read you were delighted with your performance, that's just brilliant and well deserved.  

postie, you too, a tremendous race from you and a great report above.  Well done.

I managed an easy 6 miler on Sunday just to test the knees out - both sore but manageable.  Took yesterday off and thought I'd try some fast strides today to see if the right knee in particular would hold up.  It did okay - I managed 7 miles with 20 x 1 min fast, 1 min walk.  Beautiful sunny morning helped out and after I took ibuprofen on my return, my knee pain was no more.   Hoping to start hitting training hard again now as it's not been a good April so far but we'll see how it goes.

I'm sure the knee will be fine - it's been x-rayed about 4 years ago and there was nothing wrong with it - it's the same pain now so a bit of rest will hopefully send it away - I'm almost certain that I'm going to have to give up hillwalking as I think it's the main cause.

I'll take a few days off and just be inspired by everyone doing London!  Go LMH! (can't recall if anyone else is doing it at the mo)

Went running and lasted less than half a mile, both knees in bad discomfort.  Will need to take time off, totally scunnered.  It has been a good few months coming so I can't really complain.   Will now need to find some good knee exercises I think.

Lyrics, not a clue!

Ouch, sounds a sore one alehouse.

After 3 days of eating, drinking, being merry and doing no exercise at all in Skye, it was back to the roads this morning for a 10 mile run in 76 minutes. Didnt feel good but there are a lot of toxins still to leave my system.  Knees were extra sore as well which is not a good sign after 3 days rest.  Och well, nothing else for it except to keep on plodding along!

Lyrics, I think so, yes.

Hello.  Bucketing down up here and cold too!  Aimed to go longer but didn't feel good so just 5 miles in 42 mins or so.  My vision went a bit funny during the run so had to walk for a bit.  Yesterday's energy levels seem long gone!!

Lyrics, yes, I love the song

What if I say I'm not like the others?
