Welcome mitiog!

Excellent cakes.  Good luck for your marathon training.

Just a quickie though as I have a lesson.

Ha ha!  My new sign is up - that's my current state.

I'm not working on anything right now Jude, but I think I might have a little fish around in the Amateur world and see what shows are coming up.  It's about time I went on stage again.

Hello all now fully recovered from New Year Party excess! Spent the rest of new years day resting, and yesterday weather and traffic resulted in a 8.5 hr drive home from Cornwall which normally only takes 4.5hrs!!!

Today spending last day with family as all goes back to normal tomorrow , will see how weather is before deciding on whether i'm running or going to the gym tomorrow

Hope everyone is doing well and keeping safe with this horrid weather!

Back from 5.35 miles with hubby and kids swimming.  Lots of christmas cards arrived today - better late than never!  Our minimalist decorations are still up, so we've put the new cards up too - strange!!

Gonna jump in the shower.

jude you are having extended christmas!!!

gastank, have you thought anymore about NDW50? im thinking i may need someone to give me a piggyback at some points...

Welcome home Gastank.

Welcome Mitiog to the CRAC team. Great to have you join us.

Ecky sending you hugs since you seem very down.

Yes, it's back to normal tomorrow for us too. School holiday time is deffinitely getting easier now my girlies are a bit bigger, and we've had a lovely time, but I'm looking forward to them being in school tomorrow.... although I'm not so keen on the alarm going off at 7am.

No running for me today and I'm really pleased because the weather has been atrocious (sp?). Hope if clears up a bit tomorrow. Hubby and I are going ice-skating together once the girls are at school. He likes skating but I haven't been for years so am hoping I'll not fall over too much. 

Jude - I've got you 5 decorations. Quite nice ones - or at least I think so. I'd like them on my tree, so I hope you like them too. I don't really do shopping but I'm keeping an eye out for another week or so and then I'll send them. At least you'll have them nice and early for next year.

03/01/2012 at 18:36

chili...im kinda stealing your idea but hope you dont mind...Judes tree will be bigger by this christmas...so..hows about we all send her a decoration for her tree inTurkey and she can then send us a nice pic ike she did this time on RW so we can see.....and a little bit of CRAC TEAM will live in Bursaand Jude will feel a little bit closer to us all and vice versa...in fact she could hang them on it all year !!!!

maybe we could send a tree dec that we think represents us..... so Jude will have us all on her tree....poor woman LOL

....Its ok jude you dont HVE to have our ugly mugs on the tree christmas time only if you prefer

03/01/2012 at 18:52

Welcome Mitiog 

Jude well done on getting out today- I suspect that you may have been the only one out running today.

I have been naughty & haven't yet made a dr's appointment.........I do feel fine.......but, am getting nagged by Mrs AF & you lot.......I am a typical man who doesn't like going to the Dr's.....

Anyway that is my confession and I don't know whether to go or not.

No running for me today,but, am now working from home tomorrow so will get out then.

Bye for now........

Chili - you really are very kind.  Thank you!  I'm sure they are lovely and they'll be special coz they are from you

 Loula - you made me laugh! but that's very sweet of you too!  Thank you for thinking of me 

AF - It's a bit cold here but apart from that perfect running weather, not even a breeze.  Please make a doctor's appointment, even if it's just to keep us all quiet!

03/01/2012 at 19:58

AF - it is not normal to pass out and fit! Go to the dr - make the appointment tomorrow, you must get checked out.

well done to anyone that got out in the horrible weather. I had a good session at the gym. Back to work tomorrow so had to spend the afternoon planning lessons. Must get the alarm set to get up early for a run before work. ankle still not good, but I am pretty sure running isn't making worse, going to keep the mileage down and be sensible though

03/01/2012 at 20:15
I got well and truly caught by one of the worst rain showers I've ever been in on the way back home from the shops.  I don't think I've ever had such a drenching before!
03/01/2012 at 20:22
Wow, lots and lots of posts today. Welcome anyone who hasn't posted before.
Jude, I would send you some Christmas cake, but I'm not sure it would travel very well. my parents had some to take to my Grandad but it never arrived.
AF, I think you should set us norty runners a good example. Drs aren't that scary really. My daughter normally interrogates them about their qualifications and experience before allowing them to examine her
Well done to anyone who ventured out and stayed upright!

Hi all,

Well that weather was fun wasn't it.I nearly drove into a fallen tree on the way to work.I just managed to keep control of the car as i swerved around it.Later in the morning the rain was literally sideways and it was like the middle of the night at mid day.An hour later it was beautiful sunshine and a gentle breeze.Weird.

Tomorrows tune is Christopher Cross and 'Ride Like The WInd'' from 1981.Or if you like it a bit heavier you can listen to Saxon's 1988 cover version.

Still very under the weather and i fear that most of January will be taken up with recovering.I will aim for a racing comeback in early spring,maybe with a late spring HM before i prepare to focus on Autumn's marathon.
