Early Morning Row -2 degrees

Early Morning Row -2 degrees

This is for my beautiful new "looney" friend with velvety ears! Rather bracing on the river today, but stunning. Weeping willows bowed majestically towards the river's surface, mist hung above the water, a cormorant at the top of a branch of a very tall tree was drying itself, its wings spread out like Darth Vader's cape. Amazing outing. Bench shows that Jack Frost has been a-visiting, route is the usual one down and then back upstream. View setting off. Happy safe running everyone! πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ»πŸ˜Š

  • brrrrr!! I must admit I'm not looking forward to my run tomorrow. At least you had the sense to wait until it was light. Think of me tomorrow in the cold and dark..... :/

  • Will do! Wrap up warm and make sure you can see and be seen loisamelia 😊 πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ»

  • Haha.

    To clarify for the benefit of the mystified, her looney friend with the velvety ears is our dog Martha, who Flossie has "met" in the Strava NHSC25k club.

  • Nice one AnneDroid ! Knew you'd explain that bit! πŸ˜€

  • Oh, I thought she was talking about the velveteen rabbit. I could just picture the little bunny hopping around

  • Oh, now that's sweet, nhs2015. I shall imagine that little bunny this morning on my row! x πŸ˜€

  • Beautiful Flossie....:)

  • Thank you Oldfloss πŸ˜€

  • Rowing and running! Super dooper impressive, especially in this cold!

  • Thank you melly4012. It is a little chilly at the moment, isn't it?❄️

  • So, you rowed for over an hour?!!! You must be really fit Flossie! Gorgeous photo.

  • Now before you have me in the next Olympics Irishprincess this is recreational rowing, which means you get to natter all the time and therefore you are not racing all the way by any means! It's really great fun and a way to keep in touch with friends whilst being outdoors! I can do this stretch in a single in about 40 minutes which just goes to show our slow pace as we chat! LOL πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  • Even so Flossie! Good stuff.

  • -2 that's positively balmy, you should be up here in the north of you want real cold.

  • OK, so I am a Southern Softie! What temperatures are we talking of where you are then? Hope you have enough layers to keep you warm. A dry suit perhaps? πŸ˜‰ 😊

  • I waited til after 11.00 am for my run and it got above freezing. it felt warm though as the sun was out. Lucky me 😊

  • Above freezing is definitely a good temperature to run in at the moment misswobble. Very clever to wait until after 11. I am planning another slow row this morning. Haven't checked the forecast yet, so have no idea if very cold or just a wee bit chilly. ❄️ ☁️ Well done on getting out there though. Great effort. πŸ˜€

  • So beautiful 😊hope that rowing didn't aggravate your sore knee! The only water I saw was flooding in our basement kitchen at work!!!! Another problem to sort ha ha!! Would have preferred to row with you😊😊x

  • Awww Phyllis, wouldn't that have been great? I don't think that the rowing was the problem, it was the cycling back uphill, which at the time seemed fine, but later on in the afternoon my knee moaned again. So today after rowing I shall raise it and ice it. Sounds like a cake, doesn't it! 😜 πŸŽ‚

    Sorry to hear about your flooding issue at work. Burst pipe? I'm sure you fixed it though. πŸ”§πŸ”¨ "Bob the builder, can he fix it? Bob the builder, yes he can!" 🎀🎀 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚yes it does sound like a cake!! I can see you are good at resting!!! 😊 Bob the builder would have been been still waiting now for Scottish Water to look at it!! They were working outside office so not sure if to do with that!!! The joys😊x

  • Lovely

  • Thank you! 😊

  • Sounds beautiful 😊
