LLB- take care and we are all here for you and Miss LLB. Flock of Seagulls I ran was in 1982 so you were very young!

Franny-Well done on your chilly pain free 6.7 miler.

Just a breif bit about my race. It was a 10 miler on the Sussex Coast and on the downs. Got there in shorts in short sleeve shirt- I was trying to be macho and not wear tights and long sleeve. big mistake as I was very cold and 90% of the men were suitably attired in long trousers and shirts!!!

The race was 7 miles of XC and 3 on the roads. There were two mile long killer hills so was pleased to be average sub 8 minute miles during the race. twice got overtaken by the star of my club. She beat me by her usual minute!!!

Nice scenary a lot of mud and a bit achey.

Pleased with my final position of 82 out of 352.

No running today but a long one 1st thing tomorrow.

Well done again AF..sounds like it was a super chilly day. How far you going on your LSR tomorrow?

10/12/2012 at 11:47

Morning everyone!

Loula - sending hugs to you. Not an easy time.

Did 5 miles of hills on my bike this morning. No rain, no snow, but the wind was horrrendous.

Hoping to run this eve, but have nativity plays this afternoon and meetings tonight.

Bye for now!

10/12/2012 at 12:12

Franny-My LSR will be about 12 miles. Did 11 miles on Tuesday last week so trying to bulid up the distance.

Chilli-Well done on your hilly bike ride. 

10/12/2012 at 12:14

AF...enjoy your 12 miler tomorrow..sounds like a good plan to me.

10/12/2012 at 16:19

Loula - Thinking of you all.  Hope everything works out for the best. xxx

brrr cold out there

well, we are having new windows put in, finally - we have been in this house for 9 years and the windows were already misted up and frames rotting when we moved in. They have done 3 today and the difference is amazing - even though it was dark when I got home - I could actually see outside!  We have got a local company doing them, the guy happens to be the father of the girl that is married to next door's son, so next door's have been making them cups of tea etc during the day, which is so nice of them. Nice to have someone you kinda know do it, feel happier leaving the door key with them than with total strangers

Sounds like they make a good diffference MC.  We had our house built 6 years ago and we went for a cheap window company. Now in the winter the house is a bit drafty and we can hear the wind whistling through the gaps! Sounds atmospheric though!

Oooh Jude that does sound wintery! We had that until last winter when the church elders decided they didn't like the monthly leadership meeting taking place in a draughty manse and gave us proper double glazing

No run.... am very tired and too much work to do. And I needed to be a mum and trim little girls hair.

It was my big girls' nativity play today. Actually they did the 12 alternate days of Christmas. Her part was to sing all 3 verses of silent night as a solo unaccompanied. She was so nervous I think half the audience stopped breathing. I certainly did. But after a slight wobble she looked at me and I mouthed the words along with her which kept her on track. She was brilliant. Perfectly in tune, perfectly in time and I'm soooooo proud

10/12/2012 at 20:38

oh chili that is lovely your girl had a solo

tomorrow we get to see my little boy play king herod in the school nativity

10/12/2012 at 22:03
Awwww, that's sweet chili. So good you were able to help.
Mr by eck once sang the first verse of 'once in royal David's city' as a solo.
11/12/2012 at 04:17

Morning all!

Chili - well done to your big girl! Must have been beautiful. 

MC - good luck to your your little boy. Hope he doesn't get into character tooooo much.

I've got my new adult piano student at 7.30 this evening. Bit nervous...

Have a good day all. xx

11/12/2012 at 07:31
Morning Jude.
Adult students should be easier and have a better concentration span. Do they already read music?

feeling a bit stressed and hassled this week, think I need to make sure I get out for some exercise if I can later, even if it is just a walk, I need to clear my head and relax a bit

Jude - good luck with your new student

11/12/2012 at 09:15

Oh my, it is sooooooo COLD out there! Want to do a run later.... might just have to dig out some thermals.

Loula - poor Missy. Hope you have a calm and peaceful day getting all your stuff sorted.

MC - the freezing cold will defintely clear your head!

Am off to write an essay... bye!

11/12/2012 at 10:03

Saw this and thought you all might receive inspiration from it.  Add a little 'warmth' too, probably.



11/12/2012 at 10:34
