Hi all,

Good luck with the bike run Maam, sorry to hear about the job.

Stripes a lottery win wouldn't go amiss here too!

Emma, sorry to hear about your loss

Gym last night, with a run to and from 4 miles easy, no running today, no exercise at all unless you count walking to and from barbers.


17/11/2012 at 12:12

Stewart, I miss read your post, I thought you said unless you count walking to and from the bar! That seems a better option anyway.

OH, still at work so still not been out, but sure will be fine

Yipee, I've been for a bike ride.  Took it nice and easy, slow, all on flat ground.  Planned on 15 mins, felt like 15 mins but was actually 9.17km in 43min, oops! Feeling like I'm on cloud nine now.  Knee not really hurting but resting just to be on the safe side. So happy

Hey everyone - all ok here!  Had tapas last night and today (MY BIRTHDAY) we've just got a chinese delivered.   To say i'm eating badly is an understatement!


Run planned for the morning x Hope you're all well.

My age no doubt, but now I'm thinking of a marathon too.... lol!!! (i've not been drinking)

Maam, well done on the bike ride now rest up and revel in the glory hmm the bar would have ben a better option, I'm feeling the cold now

Long run tomorrow, thinking about running up around daviot woods again

Been for another bike ride today, only a little one as got physio monday and tuesday and I don't want to over do it.  Did 4.26km in 22mins so again very slow but at least plodding on and feels good to be doing something.

Hi all,

Well done maam

Stripes how did the 13 miler go

14.4 mile for me today a new route, it was a hilly one, I loved the run, beatiful countryside made to look even better given it was a crisp autumn morning blue skys with the sun out. I took some photo on my phone I'll see if I can upload them to the computer and I'll post them up


18/11/2012 at 14:49

Taken around the 10 mile mark

that's a nice run by the looks of things - mine today went through a few housing estates, through an industrial estate, all along main roads.. There was a bunch of cheeky little sods that I would have enjoyed drop kicking into a pile of steaming cow dung (but there wasn't any and i'd prob get arrested) taking the mickey (because they were that age) and loads of cars.

I did my run late in the day.  serves me right.  Feel so much better for it though - have eaten atrociously of late!  and still have half a chinese take out for dinner tonight. Ah well..... 5 stone lighter than a few years ago and 23lbs lighter than the beginning of the year - a few days off i'm not too worried about.

Where are Booey and Mal?  seriously - should we send out a search party?

Evening All. Done a couple of miles on the tready today and probably going back for more this evening. Also took boys swimming which burnt a few cals. My 5yo is off at last Yay!!!! Really proud of him too - hopefully he'll be a little fish like his brother.

Like you guys I e been eating badly lately. Pizza Hut with the kids last night and a full on Sunday roast followed by treacle pudding and Ice Cream at the local pub after swimming. It was delicious but now I can't move!

Off on our annual mini cruise next weekend so the food will be plentiful but there is a big gym at the back of the ship sp Ill clock a few miles

Emma - sorry to hear about your gran - hope you are feeling ok.

Ma'am - well done on the bike just don't go too mad too early

Stewart - great pic - we have great countryside round here but just too many cars for my liking.

Stripes - 3-0 great win and I heard they played pretty well too. Just trying to plan our annual pilgrimage to Anfield and its looking like Norwich or Swansea. I'll let you know when I've booked the tickets.

Right what's for dinner?

Hi all,

Well done on the ride Maam.

Love the idea of you drop kicking the local yobbos Emma 

Impressive run Stewart, that is one seriously hilly route, looks lovely as well

Silver, hope you get the tickets, they will be easier to get hold of if we stay in the bottom half

Did my LSR this morning, 13.21 miles, went well. Weather was perfect. 36.08 miles on the week.

Looking at the Marathon de la Meuse in Belgium/Holland in May. The race starts in Vise near Liege, crosses the border and goes through Maastricht. It looks very picturesque and almost totally flat

18/11/2012 at 21:15
That sounds great Stripes. I like the idea of using your running ability to experience another country. Hope you can get there.

May defer trip to Anfirld in favour of England Brazil st Wembley in Feb.

Really sorry guys I am still about but I just seem to be so busy with work and thats the only time I get on here really  tried a couple of times last week and ended up logging out because didnt get chance to read anything.

I have been running plenty although not great mileage but I am trying lol

Em happy birthday for last Saturday  same day as my best friends

I have the santa run on the 2nd December but thats my only race this year now

I WILL catch up with you soon I promise

19/11/2012 at 10:27

ps Silver - I have been on the treadmill twice in the space of a week  dam these dark nights

21/11/2012 at 21:24

Hi Booey,

Glad you are well.

Where has everyone gone?

Had busy few days, had to give evidence in Court on Monday, then had step-daughters Graduation Ceremony yesterday so running took a back seat.

Managed a nice ten miler this evening, if I run tomorrow I will be back on track.

22/11/2012 at 21:39
Evening All - just watching Liverpool - Suarez on so fingers crossed they can get a win and go through.

Booey! Glad you are well. Can't believe you've been on the tready - beats running round in the dark with a light in your head doesn't it!

I must tell you about my dream last night. I was running a half marathon in Melbourne Australia and guess who was running alongside me - only Jason bloody Donovan! And what's more he was only wearing his underpants! I kept up with him too til the last 1/2 mile and then he left me standing! All I've kept thinking about today is his pert little bottom in this tight black pants disappearing into the distance!

I'm not sure what it all means but it was weird alright.

Off on our mini cruise to France tomorrow. No kids for 3 days. Woohoo!! Can't wait. Runners packed for jogging round ship and using tready. I'm gonna eat like a horse by night and run like the wind during the day. Happy running - see you all soon.
22/11/2012 at 21:52

Silver - pert???? really???? could it be a man-crush you're experiencing?  Dreams are a bit odd.... my worst one is the 'walking down the corridor in school and not wearing any clothes'..... does everyone have a 'in a public place naked' nightmare they have?

Anyway - have a great mini cruise.  Hope its not too windy for you?!

As for running with a light on your head - I have a head torch and its very fetching thanks very much.  lol

Stripes - you really do some good distances everytime you go out nowadays!  weekday mornings I only really get between 4-4.5 miles.  must try and do a 'long run' on sunday.

weather is really atrocious out there - sounds great!!!

25/11/2012 at 20:20

That is one scary dream Silver. Think a psychiatrist would have a field day Hope the cruise is good. Dont run too quick round the boat in these winds, you might fall overboard!

Emma, I used to have lots of naked in public dreams but not had one for a while, thank god. The falling ones are the worst though, waking up with a start 

Did my longest ever run today, 14.2 miles, was a bit tired after but not too bad, still 4 miles down on my weekly target because the weather was just too awful yesterday, ran in a gale on Thursday but yesterday was too much even for me and I don't really mind being out in the rain.

Where are Stewart, Mal, Maam and Booey? All gone very quiet this week
