Thanks penguin but it's older than that so no luck there.  At the mo he's looking at tutorials on you tube and thinks that my OH might be able to help him fix it.  If he can get it working again then maybe we can renew the insurance.  If it looks too complicated then we'll probably have to take it back to GAME and see if they've got a repair service.  And then there's Christmas.............................. BAH!

Am happy that my pf seems to be no worse than it was and certainly not as painful as after Stevenage HM so hopefully if I take it easy might be able to work through it?  Fingers crossed.  Will probably give the treadie a try tonight and then rest until Saturday.

 Anyone going to the London Running Show this weekend?

Hope you're on the mend trigger - being sensible to take it bit by bit!

I'd be absolutely rubbish if my wife was a baker - bad enough married to a teacher - though she does make some lovely food!

Didn't get into the super six, but it's been a real cool experience and now have a RW subscription, free Lucozade stuff a half marathon entry and best of all lots of new people (to me) to chat to!!!

Not going to the running show - you going trigger?

3 mile run tonight - up and down streets of bargoed - pleased to have averaged 6 min kms on a hillier route than I normally do! Hope I can keep that up for 10kms in the Cotswolds on Sunday.

See you tomorrow I guess since bed soon!

Bad luck BB but you've done well with the freebies.  Am still very aware that pf isn't quite right but as I walk a mile each way to school every day it could take some time to heal even without running.  Have got a ticket for the running show - going along to see how much advice I can pick up and what sort of freebies there are!  Will let you know how it was on Monday!  Are you racing in the Cotswolds on Sunday?

Hiya trigger ... did race at the Cotswolds ... the hills were great going down but harder going up! Nothing mad - well the steepest one did go on for about a kilometre, and there were two others not quite as steep that lasted for half a km and 1.3 respectively. So while the first half of the race was probably the fastest I've run at a 10k, the second half was more of a slog! Missed my pb by 28 seconds ... (completed in 60.34) - would have liked to break the hour mark for the first time, but it wasnt to be this time.

How did you enjoy the running show? What did you get out of it (info, advice and/or freebies!)

30/11/2009 at 17:51

Hi BB well done on your run,thats a realy good time.

I had a couple of good runs last week but went out today and realy struggled,I think my legs were just too cold,I realy need to warm them up properly. Boxercise tonight and been good with food,I realy want to do a good time in the Kilomathon.

Hi to everyone else hope you are all ok.

30/11/2009 at 18:51

Hi BB.  TBH Running Show was bit of a loss.  Didn't pick up any freebies and the "theatres" were in two corners of the floor.  It was in the basement of Olympia 2 so the venue didn't lend much either.  Not somewhere I'd bother going again.  Will wait for VLM Expo and bunk in there - much more going on!

 Well done on the race - 28 seconds is nothing really!

Hope everyone is well.

Hi all, sorry I've not been around for a while. Talking mojo left me a bit, but the running mojo hasn't

Did a 15.7 mile cross country race a few weeks ago called the Seagrave Challenge. It was the furthest that I've ever run and my 1st proper XC, but I loved it. Ran as part of a group from the club and it was a run/walk event, so there were rest stops WITH CAKES Our "cake stoppage" time worked out to be 29 minutes, hehehe. Had a lot of fun and got very muddy. First 10 miles was fab, last 5.7 was horrendous because the wind picked up and the rain felt like hail on your face. Urgh! Still, it was a fantastic day.

Next race is the Turkey Trot HM in a few weeks, so I went out yesterday to do 11 miles in preparation. Felt pretty crappy before I set off, but that's not uncommon. It usually fades after a mile or so and I feel great. Not yesterday!! I had no energy, my breathing was crap and I hated every second. I lost count of the amount of times I wanted to give up and go home. It was just awful. At about 8 miles I thought I was going to be sick, but the thought that I only had 1 more hill to go carried me on and I managed to complete the circuit. 

Got home, had a drink, took delivery of our Christmas tree from my parents and then went to have a shower and got in bed. Rolled into a ball because I had really bad stomach cramps and then about 10 mins later I rushed to the loo to be sick. Urgh!! Headache and stomach cramps all day and couldn't even keep water down until last night. Had the day off today and was still feeling pretty rubbish, but managed some dry toast. Feeling much better now and have managed to eat tea so hopefully I'm all fixed. Bleurgh. Not something I want to happen again in a hurry!!

Anyway, will do another 10-11 miles at the weekend and then it's the Turkey Trot the weekend after that. More pressure this time because I have a PB to beat now Erk!!

30/11/2009 at 22:04

Sorry you been poorly LK,glad your feeling better now,your running sounds amazing,I like the idea of a cake Turkey trot sounds good too.

Boxercise tonight was brill,they have just installed disco lights so its just like boxing in a nightclub.

03/12/2009 at 07:51

Quiet in here again.

 BB - hard luck with the super six - dp you think you'll enter a marathon anyway?

 LK - glad you enjoyed your XC, and good luck for the Turkey Trot. Hope you're feeling better now.

ET - have you done anymore runs since your cold legs? I know some people proudly harp on about the fact that at this time of year they still only wear shorts and tshirt, as once they are out running they soon warm up, but personally I prefer to toddle along at a slower pace wrapped up in leggings, hat, gloves jacket etc...

I don't really have much to report on except I've been out for 2-3 more runs since last post. I originally said I wasn't going to puch my distance any more until the new year, but have done a couple of longer runs just because I felt good on the day (a longer run for me is still only 3.5 miles at the moment)

According to Nike+ I ran my fastest mile this year the other day, in just under 8 minutes. I've also completed just over 200 miles for the year, which is still a bit piddly, but up until June I'd probably only done about 30 of those. Running bug is definitely re-captured at the mo though - still managing to enjoy it, and I know I'll start enjoying it even more when the days start to get longer and theweather warmer in Spring.

Hope everyone is well.

Mornin FT 3.5 miles is still good. I cant imagine ever getting warm in shorts and t I must be cold blooded.I think its cos I w8 for the kids to go into school before I set off so Im stood around for a bit freezing up,I did invest in some long tights and long sleeved top which I am going to try out this morning,I have my hat too just need some gloves now.

Hi everyone tis very quiet,maybe Santa will bring some more mojos.

06/12/2009 at 14:26
Where is everyone?  What a filthy weekend weatherwise (especially today).  Did a hill rep session with my OH yesterday and then 3 miles this morning in torrential rain.  Members of the running club were doing Grim 8 this morning in Aldershot and I really don't envy them one bit.  Hope everyone is well.
06/12/2009 at 14:48

Hi Trigger yeh tis very quiet on here,maybe its cos its nearly Crimbo.Well done on your training,Im having a rest this week as ankly been playing up,spoke to a Physio at club and she thinks I may have wrong trainers,I realy do need to go to proper running shop after Crimbo and get it done properly,I thought I was saving money self diagnosing but I should have known better.

Hi everyone else.

06/12/2009 at 19:30

Hi  guys...

Just a little motivation for the NEW YEAR....

There is a new forum     " RW UK V RW USA"

Go on and get your names down!!!!! It's not how fast or far you can go just a matter of kicking U.S.A'S ass lol

You will find all info and some links there, So what ya waiting for get the miles under your belt and do it for the UK!!!!

See you there

06/12/2009 at 20:29
Hey all, hope everyone's had a lovely weekend Christmas party for me, which I really enjoyed. Very tired today though!

FT - Looks like you're enjoying your running at the moment, which is the main thing. Well done on your fastest mile and keep soldiering on

Ecky - I'm starting to add gloves/hat to my runs too. I usually run in cropped leggings, but did wear my long ones for the club on Friday because I knew we wouldn't be going too far. Brrrr!! I always find my hands are too warm halfway through and need to take them off. Can't go without them though as my hands never warm up.

Well done for getting out there and doing your hill reps Trigger

Hey Mo, hope you're well

I have some rather massive news... I'm doing the FLM 2010!! EEK!!!! Our club had 2 places given to it, so we all put our names in the hat. Names were pulled last night at the Christmas party and I am one of them. I would like to do a marathon before I'm 30, which is Oct next year and said that if my name got picked, then it was fate. So, not only will I get to do that marathon before I hit the big 3-0, but it will be 'THE' marathon. So excited
07/12/2009 at 08:10

Congrats LK - how exciting!!!

Well done on your runs Trigger.

ET - hope the ankle is feeling better soon.

Did a run on Friday afternoon, and due to go out again tonight, but weather is pretty mingin here, so not looking ofrward to it!

07/12/2009 at 08:28

Well done LK - our club draw for places is this Saturday - we have 4 up for grabs but as none of our club members got places competition will be fierce.  In any event I have Brighton to look forward to.

07/12/2009 at 10:13
