Waves to everyone elses, hope you're all well and getting the miles in.

Just back from my long run, and boy! it was long and hilly 16 miles in just under 3hrs, got my feet up now relaxing with a cuppa and a mince pie, well it is Christmas

Hi all - was funny.  The santa suit was waaaaay too hot - first I chucked the beard, then the hat, then the belt - then saw my OH at the 5k mark and took off the santa trousers!  Then it was plain sailing!

Pics to follow!!

ho ho ho - anybody out there

Hi Emma

how is everyone getting on, Maam did you hear anything about the job, I've been running like a madman as usual, not long back from my final run of the week, 45 miles for the week and 129 for the month so far, next week is a cutback week so I'll probably do around 30ish.

On Monday it will be only 12 weeks until the Inverness HM, I'm planning to base build for a further 3 weeks and then look to get some tempo/speed work into my training program.  Anyone else got a race lined up after the holidays?

Hi all

Still no word on the job front, you never know i might hear something tomorrow.

Good milage Stewart! Don't over do it though

I'm still planning on the Silverstone on March 3rd but will have to see how it goes.

Christmas is definately time for too much food! Was out Last Sat, Sun, Tues, Thurs, then this Saturday night, lunch time today, then it's Christmas itself.  Where will the rest be put, I'm stuffed!

here here - everyone have a lovely day tomorrow with your loved ones!

Evening All

Sorry to desert you over Christmas but hope you all had a great time and ate loads! I had 2 helpings of Christmas pud followed by trifle for dessert - no secret about my sweet tooth hey. Had a great day considering it started at 5.30 with kids waking up all excited and finished at midnight after we got back from my SILs party in Twickenham. Boys did a great job of behaving, staying awake and amazingly not having any meltdowns! Needless to say they zonked as soon as we got in the car to come home last night. Off to Yorkshire to see the northern side of the Silver family tomorrow morning. After cooking for 8 on Xmas day I'm hoping to get some parental pamper for the next 2 days.

And as for running - well Dec started well with 10 days of continuous 3 or 4 milers but then I was hit with a mega migraine which after a day off work seemed to hang around for 3 or 4 days. Haven't been back on the tready since and infact it now has a case of Christmas plonk on the running belt. Hopefully Ill dust it off when we return!

Enjoy rest of hols all and happy running!

Silver - Sounds like you are having crazy busy time of it.  Enjoy your time in the land of greatness, sure your folks will pamper you well.

Hope everyone has had a great Christmas, know that I have and so very happy with all Santa brought.

Had mum n dad over from Christmas Eve till Thursday and they are coming back today till New Years Day.  Better get some shopping in

Have a fab New Year Everyone, sure 2013 will be a good one.  I know early to wish all well but I'm off for tests in hospital on Monday where I'll be sedated so not sure will be up to much.  All routine, but think I might be a bit out of it

Can someone explain why I am now eating mince pies for breakfast?

Had a great time in Yorkshire with the folks. Mum made another Christmas lunch for us on Thursday evening including Christmas Pud. It's been a foodfest this Christmas for sure and I need to move my booty and lose a couple of pounds. I

Ive really enjoyed the hols but I'm actually looking forward to getting back to the usual routine and back into training for my next HM. Watfords on Feb 3rd but I'm not sure if I have time to get in shape for it.

I'm off to move all the crap off the tready - well it's a start isn't it!

Happy New Year All!

Silver - Mince Pies for breakfast, really - that is taking Christmas a tad too far.  Have fun clearing the tready off. Sure it'll be great getting back to normal and shedding the christmas pounds.

Been food fest here too as just back from all you can eat chinese!
