Go Silver, Go Mo

I am running a 10k in the morning. Sure I will be holding them off like Mo towards the finish

Good luck Stripes. Should be a great morning for it too. Just think of Mo and kick with 400 to go!

Cheers. Just looked up course online. It looks very nasty

Dont think there will be much kicking going on

Was after a new PB or even a sub 50:00 but no chance!

HI everyone

hope everyones had a good weekend. i've mixed feelings about the end of the olympics tonight - i've really enjoyed it, but feel like now i've had enough now.... then the paralympics - should be good.

Ran 10 miles this morning, humid and sweaty!  still, its done.

Stripes - how did the race go today???? not the best weather for a PB but how did you get on??

Hi all,

hope the running has gone well, sounds like you are all enjoying more than ever.  I've been watching Mo running and so wish was out there pounding the streets so went for a walk this morning, did about 400m without crutches, get me

Got my croc pics too which I'll upload soon x

Hi all,

Well done on the run Emma and the walk Maam.

The race went well. I wasn't quite prepared for how tough the course was(if you are bored search on here for the reviews of the 'Hermitage 10k') however I managed to complete it. The first three miles were almost all up hill including a steep climb out into the country and then there were some awkward downhill plunges later on. My watch time was 51.07 but I was on about 40 seconds before I crossed the start line. Havent seen any official results as yet. So not sure if I have beat my PB(51:00) but have definitely got the race bug again

Excellent run Stripes!!!!! book your next one!!!!

And well done Maam!  I know 400 metres - its the length of my tuesday night running track - it certainly feels like quite a distance on a tuesday night!!!

Well done Stripes - def got that running bug back, now get the next race booked!

Em - 400m does feel a long way for me, but going to do a little walk at home later and use the Garmin to find out how far it is, just hope can do it in one go.  Walking is working slowly, but need to learn to drive and practice the stairs, not forgetting getting back to work.

Back on the diet today and getting some exercise

Been back on the walking today, did 550m in just over 10 minutes, felt tough and OH did come with me to literally hold my hand, but at least it I'm getting there.

I hope that everyone else is doing great

Official time is finally up 50:47. Even more determined to break the 50 minute barrier now. Searching for 'flat' 10k's to enter
14/08/2012 at 13:49

Wow - awesome stripes - you'll get the sub 50 in no time.

14/08/2012 at 14:24
Well done Stripes that's great going.

Just packing my runners for my hols. Determined to keep the momentum up while I'm away but it looks damn hot so it'll be early morning runs or no runs at all.
14/08/2012 at 15:58
Thanks both.

Hope you are feeling okay after the walks Maam.

When do you go Silver? What date is the El Classico?

Got some work done and went for my LSR. Managed 12 miles but it was a struggle. Maybe it was tiredness from Sunday or perhaps it was the lovely weather

Have a great holiday Silver.

I'm doing ok, frustrated more than anything Keeping chin up and trying to do all I can to get right again.

Keep up the good work Stripes, but remember to rest when you need it, great 12 miles though

Just saying Hi. No time to read back, sorry.

14/08/2012 at 20:35

Hi, good to know you are still about

14/08/2012 at 20:52
Glad you're all well. Hope the rehab keeps going well I bet you are dying to get your trainers back on and get out there.

Off to Espagna in Thursday morning so last day at work for 2 weeks tomorrow . El Classsico is on 23rd but it doesn't start til 10.30 and my 8 yo will be shattered by then. I think the excitement will get him through it though. We have to fly back to Alicante at 8.55 next morning do no time for a lye in either.

Apparently it's 34C all week next week! Maybe I'll have to hold back on the running afterall. Have a good couple of weeks all. I'll try and login in from the side of the pool in Spain at some point. Adios Amigos!!

Have a great time Silver. Ask Messi to sign for Liverpool when you see him 

Hi Mal

If only Stripes - I hear the Barca museum is a shrine to the Liverpool teams of the late 70s and 80s. Apparently before they became the best club in Europe they aspired to be as good as Liverpool.

Haven't seen any decent signings yet have you? Did they offload Carol to Wedt Ham?
14/08/2012 at 23:23
No. He is still there. Hope he stays but doubt it. Really hope Agger stays too. Didnt do the Barca museum, but the Real one was good. The Nou Camp is great though.
