Dee - the new shoes are great but having bought some new socks at the same time has made me realise the old ones are wearing a bit thin. They'll be okay for day to day wear .. just not enough padding for when I am out pounding the pavements.

Q - glad to hear the running is going well. I did have a race lined up until I was reminded by Mrs Wm that it clashes with my grand-daughter's 4th birthday .. don't want to miss out on my jelly and ice cream!

Booey - I'm friends with Mykey & TL on Facebook. As far as I know Mykey is busy with work and TL is as busy as ever (let's face it, she's always busy!). TL did the Great South Run (10 mls) recently but wasn't impresssed with her time .. now she's talking about doing a HM in Hertfordshire this coming Sunday.

I went out after work today and did 4.5mls .. it was almost too cold for my shorts and very blowy. Added to that my legs felt tired so it was hard work but another few miles in the bank.

well done on the run mel, i've been wearing my winter gear for a few weeks now

Q - I'm still in shorts but have been wearing my hi-viz jacket (shower/wind) over a t-shirt. Don't think it will be too long before I will be looking out for my long-sleeved t-shirt or thermal top.

Didn't manage to get out for a run today - was on call until 2:30pm then had to go over to see my son. Am out tomorrow so no long run for me this weekend.

Booey - I was gobsmacked to win Fetchpoint last month. I just take part for a bit of fun and it gets me running routes I probably wouldn't bother with otherwise. Never seriously thought MY name would come out of Lord Fetch's hat. Now waiting to see what Gore goodies I get!

Hello! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. My training has started for the Brighton Marathon in April, did 28 miles this week and feel really quite good. I just need to keep that up for the next three months, add a few miles to my weekly long run (last week's was 12, next week's will be a 13) and I'm good to go. I can't be @rsed to do much speed work, hills get done as part of my regular routes so I'll just plod along and see if I can finish in about 5 hours.  Life is as mad as ever but muchly enjoyable and I am knitting Clangers to raise money for Macmillan.

I hope 2013 is everything you want it to be.


p.s. Booey, if you are on FB just PM me and I'll give you my username so you can find me.

Hi TL. I'd seen on FB you had started training for Brighton. And praying to someone that the rain would stop (for a while at least) so you get a dry run for a change! I did my last run of the year yesterday - a slow 5 miles - obviously too much eating and drinking and lack of exercise over the last week or two. Good to see you are knitting clangers (instead of dropping them?) and raising money for cancer charities. I can't knit so I just ran bare-a***d into the sea in June instead (for Marie Curie). They will be holding more charity skinny-dips in 2013 .. I'm waiting to pencil it in my diary 'cos it was great fun!

Booey - I'm on FB too (friends with TL and Mykey on there).
