Limper a mile is more than Im guna do today . My idea was to get rid of all the wine before today so that I could start 2012 healthy. I suppose tipping it down the sink would have been a better idea than drinking the lot. Lesson Learned.

Happy New Year Gastank. Sounds like you had a good night.

Happy New Year! Wishing all my dear friends a fantastic 2012!

Welcome to Limper and Mathschick!

I think I'll have to go with chocolate and fudge cake at the moment but I also love cheesecake and well everything really. 

Gosh Gastank you are brave - swimming in your speedos! Sounds like you had an excellent evening.

AF - Good luck today - take it easy though!

Ecky- sounds like you should go to the docs too, with your foot. Wish it better soon 

Phantom - Enjoy your first run of the year.

By'Eck - Take care of that blister.  Has it burst? There are special plasters you can get, never used them but maybe worth a try if it's a big one?

Loula - Glad you had a good evening and didn't do any damage

Well I am very pleased with myself because I did 16 miles this morning in the mist and the rain.  Didn't think I could manage it after my 10 miles yesterday and I did look a wreck by the end, but I did it!!  Looked at my schedule and there is 18 miles next week. I think I might have to insert a 10 mile long run instead and postpone the 18 miler another week.  I have no dead line so I think I might as well increase my mileage at a comfortable pace.

Anyway, going to play shops now.

Hobble, hobble, hobble...
Ouch, my blister hurts
Welcome limper. In this thread, running is something we do to help us deal with life. Some people seem to labour under the impression that life gets in the way of running
i secon d that by'eck !! life does get in the way-right. this is the toughgirl way. pop that blister, flatten it, put some surgical spirit on it and then tape over it .

Happy New Year everyone!!!! And welcome Limper!

Can't talk much, stringing together sentences is a challenge... Don't know when I got to bed, but did find champagne glass next to it.... Lost dinner suit and then found it hanging in the wardrobe... Been swimming in Atlantic in speedo, very very cold, decided afterwards very very bad idea... Don't have hangover, suspect still drunk... Might have a nap

Morning boss good luck today!

01/01/2012 at 13:33
You're being a bit noisy for someone with a sore throat LLB. <<stern look >>
01/01/2012 at 13:49

Yes Loula it was a lovely day to be out for a run............Well done Phantom on your 5k trail run...your well on the way with your 10k training plan now my man......

AF......Hope your ok after your race...will try and check in later to see how you are.........but please go an get checked out at the Doctors...........me and loula are on your case.........you need to listen to us ...you know its the right thing to do.....

01/01/2012 at 14:01

Nurse Franny and  Loula on the case....*swishes superhero capes* LOL.....seriously though, AF, please, i mean look now, im sat here surrounded by all me medic books

limper...you will soon find out that i am THE worst patient ever and despite my job my cabinet has nothing useful if for illness remedy.an out of date ibuprofen ratting around at the back-if you are lucky......

01/01/2012 at 14:01

Welcome Deva!  What half marathon are you going to do?

Loula - Well done on another 20 miles!  That's brilliant, esp. after a very late night.  When is your marathon?  As I finished my run today I did think to myself that your ultra is over 3 times as long as I ran. Don't think I'll ever be able to do that ...but you never know.  2 years ago I didn't think I would be able to run 16 miles without stopping. 

Franny - enjoy your dinner and champers.

Phantom - Excellent time for a hilly 5K!

Hope AF is OK.  When did he say he'd be back?

01/01/2012 at 14:12
I come back from church and lunch and find all these amazing messages, including from new people. Welcome everyone!
Hmm, should we go looking for AF, I hope he is ok....
Blister is not huge (bout size of 20p) but it is right on the instep of my foot. I didn't think you should POP a blister but I will use a sterile scalpel if loula and franny say it is ok. I was planning a short recovery run but it is proper raining here and I have 2 children tucked up in bed feeling sorry for themselves. (not drunk!!!!!)
Loula, Turkish tea is great for sore throats. Worked wonders on mine.
01/01/2012 at 14:32

Lime and coconut for me

01/01/2012 at 14:55

Thanks for the welcome.  Am doing my home town half in Chester which is not until May, but I wanted to make my first attempt at my local race and it is flat  In the meantime I will be entering a few 10ks over the next few months and will chip in with a few parkruns.

You don't sound quiet to me loulabell

01/01/2012 at 15:18

oh i am*sits quietly*

by'eck i willl have to try that, it has been sore a few days but i made it worse trying to thrash the males of the NYE gathering we were at playing Nintendo Sport..not tht im competitive or anyfing

i had a blister on same spot by'eck whn i first got my lunarglides..they have quite a high instep and it rubbed , now even though its gone i put a cross shape of plasters over tht area...solved it pretty fast

jude, thank you for your kind words..yes i do sometimes think the same abt the distance.but i have to put it out of my head really, and break it down. my mara is in 3 weeks, depends pretty much on the weather and Gloucester not a million miles but would be a bad enough if icy or snowy and mr llb and miss llb coming too so wouldnt want to drag them out there in it. IF the weather is bad i will just have to find a another mara soonish..really my purpose of aiming for end of jan was to push myself over oct/nov/dec and not lose what id built up which has worked and ive done that. your 16 miles is brilliant and yes if you can do that now i reckon you do more

01/01/2012 at 15:21

Diva Duck Welcome.Honest Loula is sooooooooo quiet *spesh when she is in hiding*

Ooh lots of cake on here today.Just back from a walk along the canal with the kids so am having a bit of Christmas Cake. Im just so glad all my booze is gone now.

Franny it was lovely while I was drinking it but I felt a bit rough this morning.Had some Bacon and Scrambled Eggs and felt much better.

I will go the docs if my self help doesnt work.I just hate the Docs and will avoid it at all costs.

Hi to anyone else new.

01/01/2012 at 15:26

01/01/2012 at 15:27

Ecky, hope you are ok, i hate the docs too we are soooo stubborn! i still have some xmas pud and im a bit peckish now so think i will use up some cream with it
