Turkish delight mid run?!?!? Now that's my kind of energy bar!!!

Missed last nights run due to trick or treatng with the kids so ran home from football training tonight. It was fairly chilly (2') but once i got going quite a nice run. Covered 5.2 miles in exactly 53 minutes, not bad as well over half the run was uphill.

Grendel, how about running to the North pole for christmas? Its about 2700 miles from me so you should be there for christmas 2013!

01/11/2012 at 22:02
Ha ha ha yeah Turkish of my better ideas!

Well done Grendel that's amazing! Im with JR running to the pole would be wicked!

No running for me over the last couple of days, had an old friend drop by at work yesterday, then hospital today...might have a 5k tomorrow at lunch then got a 12 planned for Saturday..

Nice running everyone!

Back from my end of season meeting at Inverness. Far too much food and drink, though when it comes to the drink I am a complete lightweight. Felt quite virtuous going for a run the following morning but had very heavy legs.

Found out why soon after, as I have come down with a stinking cold. Got home at 10:00 yesterday morning and went straight to bed. 

Hopefully it will have cleared for Monday as I have a dental appointment to reaffix my bridge which is coming loose. Also getting an impression taken as this is the start of the process for getting implants fitted, the cost of which is scarily expensive.

No running for now, hopefully back to it on Tuesday.

All the best All Stitched Up!

Good on you for returning to running, as you already know, you won't regret it!

I'm off to find a bar of Caramac!

Week 7.11m

2012: 7.11m

Caramac! Now that's genius!

Well done All stitched up! Keep going its gets better!

Welcome on board 'all stitched up' I'm sure it will get easier the more you run.

Ended up back in bed after lunch yesterday and did not surface for several hours. Normally a cold for me is 2 days of sniffing and sneezing then I'm back to normal but this one has been much worse with a hacking cough as well. I even felt out of breath going up the stairs. Feeling a bit better this morning, been up an hour and not sneezed yet.

Got 35 physics students staying this weekend. Could be a slow clean when they leave tomorrow.

OK I'm starting from scratch...well I haven't run since VLM in 09.  Now with clearance to run again starting a "race" tomorrow is  very Somerset.  Seems bizarre to think I raced every weekend...

Survival is the target,

Hey peeps just a quick catch up as I have to scoot soon!

Just got back from 13.2 very chilly miles tonight 2.34 so not mega fast but fast enough for a training run...

Feels nice and a little scary at the same time that that is the last "half" out of the way! Longest run left now is an 8 next saturday then the sunday after is the Mara!!

Get well soon HRHB! Colds suck!!!

Welcome DB9! Going straight in at the deep end eh?! Looking forward to the report!

Good luck and remember to smile!

Morning (just) everyone. Later run than usual this morning, nice slow 6.1 miles. Very wet lanes, lots of hills and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Found some public footpaths (fields) to add to my runs too!

DB9, welcome back to the world of running. Good luck to you!

HRHB.....35 students! See you next week pal!

05/11/2012 at 21:36

DB9, that's an excellent run! Curry night....mmmm.....i'm jealous! I love curry!

Hi Bananas, hope you're backs not going to keep you from running?

HRHB, take it easy if you've missed a few sessions, hope you enjoy your runs this week too.

Went for an 'easy' 3 miles tonight, a little quicker than planned, 3.06 in 29:42 but felt very easy and as it was a little chilly outside I had to ditch the shorts for the first time too.
