Oh here you are Mal. I don't know whether to twitter or RW all this social networking stuff is so confusing. I'm training hard now upping my speed and my miles. Ive stocked up on Beetroot shots as they are the future! 

Got my race number today so well excited about running. Just hope Mo will be there to cheer my aching body over the line! 

22nd Aug ain't long you must be ready to get the bubba out now. I remember Mrs S was pretty knackered by that stage and couldn't wait to get it over. Unfortunately both of ours were overdue by almost 2 weeks so it seemed to go on forever.  Hope you don't wait too long.

Just remember wherever you are and whatever you're doing think of me on 11th Aug between 12 and 1 cos Ill need all the help I can get!

oh how I miss the fun we used to have! ;.-)

(is that how you do a crying smilie?)

07/08/2013 at 23:44

Your crying smiley didn't quite work out but I'm here to see. Just a few more days until your race, how are you feeling?

I have a check on here now and again but thought we all communicated via the twitter  

Good luck for Sunday Silver - you will smash it

I have every intention of starting to run again this weekend  watch this space ....

Mal - hope your ok and good luck with the big day whenever it happens

09/08/2013 at 22:42

Thank god - there is life out there - I thought I was going mad!

So are you really going to start running again this weekend Boo?  Can't wait to hear how you get on. 

Mal you must be really close now - how longs left a week? - How exciting!

Good luck to both of you!

im running on Sunday so Ive done loads of training this week 4x 5ks and Ive eaten really healthy. Very little alcohol, far too little ice cream! BUT if it all goes well Ill be pissed as a fart and stuffing my face with Hagen dasz by 6pm on Sunday night.

Oh I forgot to mention my boys are off to stay with grandparents in Yorkshire for a whole week. It will be the first time in more than 9years that Mrs S and I have had a full week alone! With no interruptions, or noise, or lego strewn around the house! Can't wait - bring on the nookie! 

09/08/2013 at 22:44

Haha! - in my dreams anyway!

Hello all,

Silver - good to hear that you are getting up to speed with your running so to speak, I seriously need to take a page out of your book.

Mal - not long to go now.

Boo - you got your doggy running yet?

I'm only 5 weeks off the GNR and still can't get past 10km!!! I just want to cry, going to see if I can push to nearer 10 miles tomorrow to try and restore me some confidence.

I have been on holiday in bonny scotland too so eating way too much and drinking, but now getting back on straight and narrow.

Good luck with your run tomorrow Silver - you'll do great and love it

10/08/2013 at 19:59

Good luck tomorrow Silver.

10/08/2013 at 22:06

Hi Maam - I remember struggling to get passed 10k too as it seemed such a long way. Have you tried some music to take your mind off time/distance? Or maybe a run buddy? Sure you can still make it to GNR. 

Good luck. 

11/08/2013 at 16:13

Silver - how did your run go?  I hope good.

I have tried running to music, it annoys me Don't know people around here to get a running buddy and the running club is on at a time I can't make with getting back from work so late so at a bit of a one woman fight to do this.

Feeling a bit better after todays 14k, but know GNR will be a long slog and will be a plod from start to finish and hopefully won't see me off in the process

See how I feel tomorrow to decide what Wednesday run to do then planning another long, about 16k, for Sunday all being well. Diving Saturday so see how tired the legs are but have to keep pushing on.  Also need less loo stops

11/08/2013 at 23:03

How did it go today Silver? 

12/08/2013 at 21:52

How is everyone?  I'm finally stopping aching, might try a little 5k tomorrow

13/08/2013 at 19:53

Where is everyone??? My race pack arrived today! Very very nervous now, feels so real and closer than last year.  Fingers crossed joints hold out another 5 weeks to allow me to jump for joy when I finish, I WILL do this
