Rest day...

So i'm stuck at home right now. Got soaked yesterday evening and don't feel like going out in all the lightning, thunder and heavy rain.

Have felt tormented ever since I jumped at at 4.30am this morning thinking it was my day to run. Soon was bought back to reality with a bump. It's my rest day.

So what can I do to occupy myself. Oh yes I know.... get the exercise bike out.

Did 20 minutes of peddling and had to finish. Seat felt uncomfortable. Maybe I'm just not used to it because I really haven't used this bike since I bought it.

Oh well at least I got alittle exercise fitted in today.

I had one of those days too. Hot, no shade, stopped 3mins short when bluetooth batteries went flat. But then I remembered I had cheese and ham baps for lunch...

Haha! Enjoy your ‘rest’ day! 20 mins on an exercise bike is great! Well done! 😂

Knowing you, you'll strap the exercise bike to your head for your run tomorrow to increase the challenge :-)

U r totally awesome dude. Enjoy the rest of your day okay? We're both on W6R3 duty tomorrow #scary

I thought stationary bikes were for putting ironing "to do" lists on....

Lol 😂😂😂you're soo funny that you have me in a coughing fit right now.

Oh it's had its fair share of being an extra place to hang clothes on.

Felt a little sorry for it and thought I'd take it out for the day.

Done my peddling for the day and now relaxing with my legs up watching "Air Crash Investigation." (Yes I know I'm abit of a weird one). But I do love this programme. Very informative.

Hope you're resting up too because come tomorrow we've got work to do!

You are a runner my love. Donna and I don't get the tattoos until tomorrow. Or at least Donna will, but I'm planning to sneak up on her and do some amateur skin-grafting while she's putting the exercise bike hat back in her home gym complex....

He knows he's a fighter. Secretly listening to "the final countdown by Europe and Eye of the Tiger by Survivor" like me on every run. Lol

Have to say I changed some of my music today. Snoop Dog "Sweat" got me through it. Please don't judge me Sallenson. It's the kind of beat that keeps me motivated.

To each his own. But whenever someone says Snoop Dog I'm reminded of an episode of Father Ted and then just retreat into gentle rocking and giggles....

I will never judge you for your frankly atrocious taste in music. We are past that rocky stage in our relationship hon :-)

😂😂. It's just the beat - it motivates me to run. I actually love LED Zep - just not to run to!

I'm taking "When the Levee Breaks" on repeat tomorrow. DaveB46 has approved. Plus "Four Sticks". Total LZ day for me tomorrow....

I tried those. But the time and effort involved in back-combing my hair every day put me off. And frightened small children.

Those are my last resort tunes for when all else has failed.

Quick shuffle of my running play list and Donna is go again, well at leat til Micheal gives me permission to stop my version of the walking dead run.... 🏃🏃

As long as you're not swotting up on Season One of "How to Totally Cane Allenson into Submission" tomorrow I think I'm okay with your TV of choice.

I might go and watch a few old seasons of Bake Off and then fill my running jacket pockets with small edibles for tomorrow.

As you say, we have worlds to conquer. And _SimonT_ is right behind us dragging his treadmill and looking hungry...
