LOL yeah my music taste is very varied to be honest, love anything thats abit out there and keep my music knowledge upto date  enjoying the dubstep thats hit us at the moment  was big into the club scene back in the day and I really really miss it lots some days

I still go to alot of gigs and some of them are completely the other end of the spectrum  lol

Morning all
I've pulled a sickie!! really not like me! But still full of snot, red eyes, red nose, voice is failing.. Just the person u'd want to spend half an hour with while u get ur hair cut hey!? rofl gorgeous day here too, wish I could go for a run!!

Well done Suzie as I haven't done any races I look at the times I run my routes and give myself a pb from them I think I need something to compare too to try and improve and I know I can improve loads! and honest I never wore a jacket, in fact I never wore sleeves either! (New top has long sleeves) don't know if maybe u regulate temp better the more u do it? Maybe find next winter I'll feel the cold and wear one then lol I have bought gloves and a beanie just in case though.. Also want to get the spike things u can strap to ur trainers so u can go for a run in the snow would love to be running through it!
U guys have ur club runs tonight then! Have u decided what to do yet stripes? I'd probably just go for a smaller run today or tomorrow but it's u that knows urself best and a 6 miler may be what u fancy doing! hope ur nans better soon, went to see my grandad on Monday and he announced he's gonna try and make to 100 now as he's got this far (he's 84) lol stubborn bugger
Silver I expect the lady would be glad of company, but I think u might find ud have to slow a lot to run with her! U do seem pretty quick u should definitely recomend the club to her though! Hope u enjoy ur lunch run! Wish I could do that! I'm on the oranges today.. Well satsumas I'm not a big fruit eater so I have lots of smoothies
Booey how many races have u done? I think maybe I can find someone at the club to enter some races with.. Hopefully! Or I might never do it!

Still ill. Should go to the doctors but don't want to. Over a week of no running now.

Feeling too rubbish to catch up on the thread so will just say I hope you're all good and running well.

Dubstep is the latest music craze

Oh dear Sabbie hope your feeling better soon, you cant go to work like that if your a hairdresser can you

I have done 4 5K and 2 10K races, I ran them on my own its easier.  Unless you can find someone totally your pace there is no point you will seperate anyhow

17/11/2011 at 11:50
Mal! Pants init hun and I've not been as ill as long! I never used to get ill, and all I've done this wk is moan about it hahaha can't suffer in silence

Booey, it's definitely the 'unknown' that makes me want to go to a race with someone else, if they leave me behind after we start that's fine (although I'd probably get lost ) but someone who knows what's going on when I got there would be most welcome
17/11/2011 at 12:30

Mal oh dear your still poorly, thats crap

Sabbie - lol you wont get lost, courses are mapped out and there are marshalls everywhere - get one booked you will love it

Well my club run tonight is not happening now, my own choice though,  just had a text to say time moved to 7.30.  The lady who won the ballot for the VLM with the club is injured but desperate for a shortish run to see how she gets on but can't make till 7.30.  So the other two girls have said they will go at that time to support her (they do alot of their races together) so I understand totally.  Other club runners going out at 7 will leave me for dust and no way am I going to hamper them.

So I have made the decision to get home from work and go out on my own round the village (although I suppose I could treadmill) will be nice to give it a try for the first time and try and stay within the street lights hehe its a big village and very long so I should manage ok and 5.30ish plenty of people still about, even if I only do 3miles it all adds up

Well the sickness is definitely going round isn’t it?  Sorry to hear you are both unwell.

Mal – you’ve had a really rough time lately what with the kids and the pooch.  Can I suggest the following foods as a pick-me-up

Fruit – Any

Stew or Cottage Pie – with loads of bread!

Soup – Tomato

Crisps – Cheesy Doritos

Chocolate – Any

Haribos – Starmix or Tangtastics

Sabbie – good you took the day off I wouldn’t want you cutting my hair in that state. I’m still looking to run my first proper race (I did a Parkrun in September) but I’m too chicken to enter one and a bit nervous about turning up on my own at the start tbh.  Shame you are in the back of beyond as we could enter one together.  You’d probably leave me standing though at your pace.  With Reading HM getting closer Ill think more seriously about entering a few in the new year but for now I’ll just keep getting out there when I can – and the family let me out on my own for a bit!

17/11/2011 at 12:56
Booey! What a shame! But the run through the village sounds great and like u said miles all add up!

lol Silver! I ain't fast fluked a quickish (for me) 3miler but way off ur pace maybe 2013 I'll do the reading half as dad lives there but can't see myself doing one anytime soon, scary distance to me!! lol

On the subject of comfort food.. I just had Tom soup and a cheese toastie Mmmmmm been indulging far too much since the wkend though
17/11/2011 at 13:41
Mmmmmm Sabbie can't beat Tommy Soup when you are feeling unwell coupled with a Cheese Toastie too Bliss!

Well talking of PBs I have just run my farmers fields route of 5.34 km in a PB of 27.19 mins. That's a whole 2 secs off my best. Think it would have been quicker but it was v warm as the sun came out and was in my face a lot of the way and also it was very muddy and I nearly went A over T a few times. Still v pleased to get out and run a decent pace.

Ram the second km in 4.50 too which is going some for me!

Right I'm starving now. Where's that Toastie machine!
17/11/2011 at 13:50
Well done Silver good time through fields!

Toasties all round then! I wanted pickle in mine but sadly the cupboard was bare
17/11/2011 at 13:51
Great run Silver and good time, bet it was nice in this sunshine although not in ure face
17/11/2011 at 14:57

You are on here lots today, trying to make up for being neglected yesterday Silver?

Thanks for both the concern and the suggestions. I will try out as many as possible as soon as I'm better, maybe not all at the same time! I have had a rough time lately but hopefully things are improving and Mr Mal is being really lovely and supportive which makes such a huge difference.

Booey, good luck with your village run tonight, hope it goes well. I live at the edge of town and have to pass all the pubs to stay within street lights, it'd be fine if I was a vision of lovliness running passed them but alas, I'm not quite there yet!

Sabbie, I hope you get better soon. Hope you get lots of rest.

I'm dying to get out for a run, shame this happened just as I was seeing improvements. Parkrun as soon as I'm back to form, I'm hoping I can improve on my first time or make it without walking.

17/11/2011 at 15:13

Mal - keep your chin up, once you are better that first run will be great

I don't worry about being a vision of lovliness, to be honest I don't think anyone that knows me would realise it was me  I am a vision of hi vizzyness haha

17/11/2011 at 15:42

Thanks Guys – I’m so pleased I got out and in the sun aswell – that’s the first time it hasn’t been dark or foggy while I’ve been running in a few weeks.

Someone mentioned getting some off road trainers to me which may not be a bad idea as mine are slipping around in the mud now.  I must look for some – can anyone suggest anything?

Mal you are right I’ve been on here far too much today - almost as much as Booey! J – but at least you guys are replying and I feel loved again! Don’t worry about not getting out just enjoy a bit of R and R at home for a few days.

Sabbie – where’s my toastie? L

17/11/2011 at 16:17
Oh yes they are rather nice
17/11/2011 at 16:36

Could be a good Xmas pressie Booey!  Think my feet deserve a bit of rugged luxury after all those miles.

That web-sites good too - loads of stuff and some good ofers. Ill be on there again tonight for sure!

17/11/2011 at 16:37
Silver! It's been sat on the side.. Did the dogs get it? Rofl
Those trainers look nice must admit to not having looked at off roading stuff cos I'm always on the roads at the mo. When I've built it up a bit more may venture onto some trails
17/11/2011 at 18:32
Darn those Dogs - I was starving too! They can sleep outside tonight!

What's for dinner?
